How to Prevent Sunstroke The heated term is withstood without a whimper by those people who have a healthy stomach. Hot weather cannot hurt the man or woman whose stomach and digestive organs are perfectly healthy. But you go into July or Au gust with a disordered stomach and see what the result will be. Sunstroke at tacks only the man or woman whose stomach and digestive organs are too feeble to protect the strength and main tain one's physical power to resist the depressing effects of the summer's sun. Summer .diet,, with all its vegetables and unripe fruits, adds its unstable in fluence to the depressing effects of hot weather, causing a still greater decline in one's strength and vitality. Ninety-nine of every one hundred peo ple whose health and strength runs down in summer, allow their stomach or digestive organs to get out of order. This is easy enough in fact, it is hard to prevent without the use of some thoroughly reliable digestant. Kodol after meals is not only a thor oughly reliable digestant, but it con tains great tonic and reconstructive properties as well. This famous remedy enables the stomach and digestive organs to thoroughly digest, assimilate and contribute to the tissues all of the nourishment that is contained in such food as may be eaten. Kodol clears the way and makes sure the journey from sickness to health and weakness to strength. If the stomach is disordered Kodol will correct it. If dis eased Kodol will cure it. Kodol lays the foundation for health, and the upbuilding of strength by cleansing, purifying and sweetening the glands and membranes of the stomach, and by supplying natural juices neces sary to perfect digestion, assimilation and nutrition. Kodol prevents colic, cholera, diarrhoea, flux, dysentery and summer complaints generay, and its use will cure indigestion and chronic dyspepsia permanently. Kodol is good alike for young and old. Your drug gist sells it. This famous tonic is prepared in the laboratories of K. c DeWltt & Co., Chicago, whose facilities for the manu facture of medical preparations are unequalled anywhere in the country.

According to informa tion, received by the Vatican almost all the real estate belonging to Spanish friars in the Philippines was !wl be fore American occupation to syndicates and corporations duly registered and legally recognized, headed by Americans living in New York. It is alleged by the same authority that although the friars hold some shares in these corpora tions, they do not own controlling in terests. The Vatican is surprised at this information, in view of Governor Taft's proposition to buy the friars' lands which apparently are no longer in con trol. It is considered remarkable that Governor Taft, fresh from the Philip pines, was not aware of the situation. All Were Saved. "For years I suffered such untold mi eery from Bronchitis," writes J. H.

Equipment Boards Installed in Santa Fe Offices. Keep a Convenient Record of Batteries and Telephones. SJlSTA fe telephones Said to Be About 100 Private Lines on System. They Constitute an Important Time and Labor Saver. rtr nf "hi new thine-a which. C. H. Gaunt, superintendent of telegraph of the Santa e, nas caused to ne tiitoil in hi denartment is a. Dair of equipment boards, for the purpose of keeping an accurate, easily accessible record of the telephone instruments and batteries which the Santa. e comiiajjy has at all points on its lines. The equipment boards have been man ufactured at the Santa Fe shops in this city, and were put in place in the su perintendent's office at the general of fices on Wednesday. As soon as some additional equipment for the boards is manufactured the tabulation will be made. The equipment boards are very sim ilar to the boards in use in the general superintendent's office to keep track of d in the superintendent of transportation's office to record the movement of freight, car equipment. Tiach of th new boards will be pro vided with about 1,500 holes of the proper size to admit of the insertion of a small plug with a button top. On the top of each plug will be marked the kind of equipment which it represents. Other plugs of somewhat larger siz will be made to bear the names of towns. It will then be a simple mat ter to arrange the plugs so that under each town will be found an exact rec ord of the telephone and battery equip ment at that town. The telegraph department already has an accurate record of all tHis outstand ing annaratus. but it is in record books, and difficult of access. . The proposed equipment boards will place the full in formation plainly and tersely before the officials. It will take some time to prop erly label all the plugs necessary to es tablish the system. It is not generally known that the Santa Fe railroad has about 100 inde pendent telephone lines on its system, which it owns and controls exclusively. These private 'phone lines are under the supervision of the telegrapn de partment. "We have more miles of telephone wires than meet people suppose," said a Santa Fe man today, "and the tele phone is an institution without which a modern railroad would be seriously inconvenienced. Here in the Tooeka shops, the superintendent of motive power has a private 'phone line to all of the various departments under his control. In smaller towns there is always a private line between the office of the agent and the round-house. If the agent gets instructions to have an extra engine ready for a certain time, he simply phones the order to the round house. It saves an Immense amount of time." Supt. Gaunt is now on the Colorado division of the system on an inspection trip, ana is expected to return Friday. ARE VERY FRIENDLY. Hock Island and Union Pacific to Have Joint Freight Agency. Denver, Colo., Aug. 7. The Union Pacific and Rock Island will establish a joint freight agency at Pullman, probably September 1. It. will be for tne interchange or through business be tween the two roads. This is . considered a very important move, and is taken as a mark of the close relations between the two roads in Denver. Railroad men look upon the move as showing conclusively that the Union Pacific and Rock Island are working together on through business, and that the Rock Island stands in the same relation to the Union Pacific in Denver that the Northwestern does in Omaha. It is also considered as a move show. ing that the Union Pacific and Rock Island have come to some understand. ing, and that the Burlington will have to work out its own salvation on through business. In other words, that the Union Pacific will give business to the Rock Island in preference to the .Burlington. The establishment of the joint freight agency at Pullman will, it is said in Seventeenth street, be to the disadvan tage of the Burlington, as the Rock Island will practically control a large part or tne union Paclhc's westbound business, working for the Union Pacific in through business. However, it is said that there is no other significance in the move, and that it is only to fa cilitate the movement of through bust' ness. PRESIDENT HILL TO FARMERS Says They Should Own the Railroads Themselves. Spokane, Wash., Aug. 7. Following the second conference between J. J. Hill. president of the Great Northern, and the northwest farmers, these reductions were announced: President Mohler of the Oregon Rail way and Navigation company said that the roads would give a 10 per cent re duction on wheat shipments to the Pa cific coast before August 15. President Mellen announced that a 10 per cent reduction would be given on wheat shipments from the east. President SHill said this reduction would cut off one-fourth of the entire profits of the railwavs. The farmers of the Palouse country asked a reduction of wheat rates to the coast of from 12 cents per bushel to 10 cents, or $3.33 per ton. In his speech. President Hill said: "I don't know what you're going to do until you turn your eyes to the east for new markets. The railroads have made wheat more valuable in Minne sota and possibly we can help you here Let the people and the railroads be good neighbors and fair to each other. We would like nothing better than for the peonle along the road to own the rail roads themselves. There is no reason why they should not." RELIEF AGENT APPOINTED. Santa Fe Creates a New Job For R. C , Sandrett. . San Bernardino, Cal., Aug. 7. A new position has been created in the Santa Fe passenger department In this city. R. C. Sandrett is the man who will occupy the new- berth and he has just finished his first job under the new plan at Upland. Sandrett is an all round man who has been for some time relieving sick agents or those who felt a pining for the mountains or the coast. August 1 the position of relief agent was created and Sandrett was) appointed as relief agent. He will be constantly em ployed, as the agents over the coast lines are constantly becoming suddenly sick or are desirous of a vacation. BOO IN BABY CLOTHES. Ruse of Three Maidens Which. Failed to Work. , The San Bernardino Transcript says: A few days ago three girls, aged from ib to zu years or age, came over to san Bernardino from Riverside on the after noon Santa Fe train and were at the station for several minutes while await ing the loop train for Los Aneeles. The younger of the girls had what appeared to re a baby in ner arms, and the fact of so young a girl having a child at tracted the attention of the crowd. Finally one man walked leisurely down the platform on a trio of investigation. He moved quickly on the return trip and reported to the men that the bundle of soft baby clothes, including the little wnite cap, aid not enclose a baby at all, but a common dog, and not a very pretty one at that. Immediately the trio or young ladies was the objective point for all eyes. They did not seem to be the least embarrassed by the attention tney were attracting; on the contrary, they never paid any attention and were apparently ignorant of the curious glances that were directed toward them. The railroad boys Dredicted that Con ductor Bill Hickson of the Los Angeles train would nre that dog into the bag gage car, baby clothes or no baby clothes. Everybody who has traveled on the Santa Fe knows "Smiling Bill" Hickson, who has a grin and a pleasant wora ior everyDody. Well, when he came along to those girls he could not resist the temptation to make some re mark about the baby that was appar ently gazing intently out of the window at the passing landscape. When he had maae ine tour or the train he returnee: to the baby and started to stroke it under the chin. He nearly fell over In the aisle when a low growl came from the soft bundle, and turning its head tne aog snowea some sharp fangs. Wil liam recovered from the shock, hut the laughter of the passengers caused a rusn oi Diooa to his cheeks and neck. He told the young lady that the "baby" would have to eo into th. ha as it was a strict rule of the Santa Fe company that no four-legged babies were allowed in the passenger coach. Put the girl refused to give up her pre cious darling and hugged it tightly to her bosom. The conductor argued, but the girl was obstinate. "Smiling Bill" was entirely too chivalrous to tear the dog from the girl's arms, and he called Brakeman Jack O'Brien to the rescue Jack is not overburdened with scruples when it, is up to him to enforce the rules of the company, and he promptly carried the dog, clothes and all, to the baggage car, while the girl cried as though her heart would break.

Thousands of weak and sick women can trace the beginning of a new life of perfect health to that letter written to Dr. Pierce. Sick and ailing women are invited to consult Dr. Pierce, by letter, free. All correspondence held as strictly private and sacredly confidential. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures weak and aching backs, headaches, nerv ousness and other womanly ailments by curing the womanly diseases which cause them. "In the spring of xeoo I became verv ill," writes Mrs. Alnena Scholtc of Lake Washing ton. Lesueur Co., Mian., my back was very weak and ached so that 1 could do no work at all, so I was obliged ts take to my bed. I felt a constant desire to urinate and the pains in abdomen were almost unbearable. I wrote to Dr. Pierce, who sent me a very kind letter, and advised me to take his Favorite Prescription ' and 'Golden Medical Discorery. I took six bottles of each and am a well woman now. I cannot say enough ia fa-ror of Dr. Pierce's medicines. " "Favorite Prescription makes weak women strong, sick women well. Accept no substitute for the medicine which works wonders for weak women.

Want Better Terminal Facilities For ' the Choctaw. Terminal privileges have been granted the Illinois Central road at Memphis. Officials of the road regard the fact as a great victory. The 'Frisco, Louisville and Nashville and Rock Island have petitions before the council asking for somewhat similar privileges and the fact that Illinois Central has secured its grant is not regarded with satisfaction by any of these roads. The privileges of Illinois Central are variously estimated as worth from $1, 000,000 to $4,000,000: The road secures dockage and terminal facilities that are eminetnly satisfactory and will be ade quate for many years no matter how the city grows. It is pointed out that Illinois Central has spent a great deal in Memphis and has a big taxable equity in that city, and has therefore merited more from the city council than the other roads which have less investment in the city and have done less for it. Choctaw is expected to be next most favored applicant for privileges in Memphis, and is stated to be badly in need of just such facilities as those ob tained by Illinois Central. The city council, while it has favored the Illinois Central company, does not wish to an tagonize the other roads in any way. For that reason much interest is mani fested in the report of the railroad com mittee on the petition of 'Frisco and Rock Island, which will be brought up in a week or so. Illinois Central people say that in all probability grants will be made proportionate to the benefit the roads have been to the city, and in timate that the concessions granted Illinois Central were made entirely on that basis. FERRETED OCT FORGERS. Railroads Have a Cinch on Allardt Gang of Ticket Swindlers. An official of the Western Passenger association tells the following story of how the detectives of the association ferreted out the recent ticket forgery case in Chicago, rie says: "Three weeks ago information reached us that a certain person was located in a room in a Clark street hotel, being registered there with a woman by the name of W. T. Davidson and wife. This person was connecting with brokers on Clark street and the supposition was that he was engaged in altering and forging tickets for the brokers. "We at once arranged to place men in the adjoining room at the hotel, and for two weeks kept the party under sur veillance. The information obtained in this manner verified the report and showed daily connection between this man, whose name proved to be Edward Farnum and Chas. J. Allardt, ticket broker at 192 South Clark street. "Having determined this point, we sent men to Allardt's to purchase tickets, and succeeded In purchasing specimens of forged, altered and raised tickets. We next obtained warrants for the arrest of all the parties concerned, and a search warrant for the rooms in the Clark street hoteL In that room we found a great quantity of counterfeit, altered and expired railway tickets, aoids, inks, dies and stamps in short, a complete outfit for making fraudulent tickets. "The parties arrested were Chas. J. Allardt, Alexander Freeman, Jas. A Donahue, Edward Farnum, alias W. T. Davidson, Maggie Moran, alias Agnes Davidson. They were all bound over to the grand jury under 1660 bond each." STRIKE PROPHESIED. . Santa Fe Machinists Said to Bo Plan ning a Walkout. The Chicago Tribune said Wednesday: "A general strike of the mechanics on the Santa Fe road will be called tonight if the conference between the officials of the company and President J. E. Mc Connell of the union does not settle the present trouble on the Texas division of the road. The men want a nine hour day and a scale of 37 cents an hour. Should the conference fail every ma chinist between Chicago and the coast will be called out." , The report probably is without foun dation. Topeka officials claim that there is nothing in it WHITE OOFS TO GALESBURO. Important Change in the Office of Treasurer of Santa Fe. W. M.
