I tr - w - a Mrs. Anderson, a prominent society woman of Jacksonville, Fla., daughter of Recorder of Deeds, West, says : ' " There are but few wives and mothers who have not at times en dured agonies and such pain as only women know of. I wish such women knew the value of L,ydia K. Pink barn's Vegetable Compound. It is a remarkable medicine, different in ction from any other I ever knew and thoroughly reliable. ' I have seen cases where women doctored for years without permanent benefit who were cured in less than three months after taking your Vege table Compound, "while others who Were chronic and incurable came out Cured, happy, and in perfect health after a thorough treatment with this medicine. I have never used it myself without gaining great benefit. A few doses restores my strength and appetite, and tones up the entire system. Your medicine has been tried and found true, hence I fully endorse it." Mas. R. A.

Santa Fe Constructing New Plant at Dodge City. At Dodge City the Santa Fe has com menced the erection of a plant for treating water o remove the incrtist ants which have uroven so detrimental to the boilers of its locomotives, the in stitution to be operated by the Ken nicott Water Softener company of Chi cago which has promised to take charge of a number of these plants along the line. The one at Dodge City will have a capacity of 8.000 gallons an hour. There are to be three others. One at Syracuse, Kan., whose output will be 4.000 rallons hourly: at Lamar, Col., 4, 000; and at La Junta, Col., 2,500 gallons. The chemicals used in removing the destructive constituents are lime and sodium carbonate but entire plant is an- elnborste- one.' - It is nrobnbie trrafthi-H is a move which will not end until all along the Santa Fe lines iilaees .for treating the water used in the engine boilers are built. The cost is great, but the expense of keeping flues and boiler parts in repair is an item one of the largest which the we-tern railroads have to nay but which she does not confront so strongly the lines of the cast.

Made only by THE N. K. FAIRBANK COMPANY, Chicago, New York, Boston. St, Louis. Makers cf OVAL FAIRY SOAP RAILROADNEWS. Santa Fe Adopts a New Train Signalling Device. Invented by Amos McKanna, an Ex-Engineer. GETS A GOOD PRICE. Reward for Four Years of Work and Study. Train Orders Can Be Given to Trains in Motion. Amos McKanna, an old Santa Fe en gineer at Emporia, has been in Topeka this week closing up a contract with the Santa Fe for the adoption by that road of a device for giving train orders to engineers on engines going at full speed. This invention has just been patented bv McKanna. and will be at once put into use on all parts of the Santa Fe system. It will be manufactured at the Santa Fe shops in this city. M. McKanna was injured four years ago in a Santa Fe wreck at Evans, near Strong City, and since that time has turned his attention to inventions. His efforts are row rewarded, for he states that under his contract with the Santa Fe he gets a good price for his inven tion, besides annual passes for himself and his wife for life. The contract leaves Mr. McKanna free to sell his de vice to other railroads, and indications are that it will prove itself of great value and come into general use throughout the country. The invention consists of a large wire loop fastened to the end of a stout stick. Attached to the look is a metallic case containing a written copy of the orders tor .the locomotive engineer or conduc tor. On the stick is a signal lamp and a rsflectoi, to give notice to the engi neer of the oncoming train that orders are awaiting him. The station agent holds up the loop within reach of the engineer, who grasps it as he tlies past. The wire loop with the orders attached automatically detaches itself from the stick and the signal lamp. This invention will obviate the neces sity of stepping heavy trains at small stations for orders. Instead, the orders are telegraphed ahead of the train to the station agent, who immediately ar ranges his signalling device and awaits the train. Without slackening speed the engineer gets the orders. It is believed by Mr. McKanna and the Santa Fe officials that the invention will not only be a great saving of time, but will also be productive of economy in operating trains. It costs considerable money to stop a fast train, and the less stops th more saving there is in train operation. Mr. McKanna says that in his numer ous tests of the invention it has never failed to work satisfactorily. He has repeatedly passed train orders to engi neers on Santa Fe trains running 60 miles an hour, and he believes that there is no more trouble in giving orders to trains at such high rates of speed than to slower trains. JOINT LINE THROUGH TEXAS. Santa Fe and Bock Island Said to Be in the Deal. Galveston. Tex., Oct. 1. From a re- -Mable-sourfe tt in learned that the Rock Island and the Santa Fe are contem plating the construction of a joint line from some point in the Indian Territory on the Choctaw, Oklahoma and Gulf to Galveston. The Kock Island and the Santa Fe extend to Fort Worth and a new line will be built from that city to Dallas, connecting with the main line extension of the two roads from Dallas to Galveston. When the Rock Island first deter mined to build from Fort Worth to deep water at Galveston it was proposed to use the Santa Fe's main line, the two roads to use this jointly. It was decid ed later that the grade of the Santa Fe could not be lowered to a degree to niace it in the best condition for competition with the Gould and Southern Pacific lines, and it was then proposed that the two systems combine in building a new line through Texas, which would in clude Dallas and Houston, the two largest and most imporan commercial centers in north and south Texas. The Santa Fe will continue to use its main line for local freight and the San ta Fe and the Rock Island will use the new line jointly for through freight. HUNTERS FOR HOMES. Southwestern Lines Announce One Way Raters for Colonists. C. M. Pratt, chairman of the South western Passenger bureau, has com pleted the promulgation of the an nouncement cf a one-way colonist rate to southwestern territory, effective on homeseekers' dates from October, 190.;, to April, 1903. inclusive. These one-way colonist rates will be i..jtf.--fc---.. twins do your work-" I- f'Ztf'&i g S f v-J f-'-tS 'i good for continuous passage, transit limits to be shown in the various rate sheets, at $2 In addition to one-half of the regular standard one-way first-class fares. The low rates will be effective with the second homeseekers' date in Octo ber, Tuesday, the 21st, and continuing until the last homeseekers' excursion date of April, 1903, which will be the third Tuesday of that month. This rate is second class and not good in standard sleepers, and will be in effect from St. Louis, Kansas City. Memphis and other Mississippi and Mis souri river gateways. The rate will be tendered to connecting lines for basing purposes. The following lines will participate in this arrangement: The Santa Fe, the- Bock Island Pacific, the Rock Island & lexas, the Choctaw, the El Paso & Northeastern, the Fort Worth & Den ver City, the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe, the Houston & Texas Central, the international & Great Northern, the- Missouri, Kansas & Texas, the "Katy in Texas, the Missouri Pacific, the San Antonio & Aransas Pass, the St. Louis & ban t rancisco, the St. Louis, Iron Mountain & Southern, tiie St. Louis southwestern, the Cotton Belt in Texas, tne Southern Pacific, the Texas & Pa cific, and the Texas Midland. On October 6 these lines will take up the matter of establishing a central Dureau m fet.

Plucky Operator Boarded a Flying Locomotive Near Houston. From the EI Paso Times.! "Stop 631; she's running: wild," was the order sent out from the Southern Pacific dispatcher's office in Houston one night last week at 11 o'clock. No. 631 is an oil burning switch engine do ing duty in the Southern Pacific vards The engine was on the main line and in some unaccountable way took wing3 and started off. There was a rush to capture the runaway, but to no avail. Then the assistance of the telegraph was invoked, cnane Junction was call ed and told to look out for the run away. Instantly Operator Geer at the latter coint was on the alert. He gave the signal and with Watchman Me Quordale and Yard Clerk Bruce Fergu son awaited the coming of the fugitive. i he engine showed up in a few minutes going at the rate of 12 or 15 miles an hour. Taking a running start Operator Greer boarded the engine and in a mo ment was in the cab. Grasping the lever he quickly brought the runaway to a standstill, and in a minute or two had her on a sidetrack. Just then an extra hove in sight from Blodgett and blew for the crossing, coming in the direction that the wild machine had been racing a few minutes before. Use of the wire and the quickness of Operator Greer and his fellow workmen had prevented a serious wreck. AFTER MORE LAND. Union Pacific Working Their "Right of Way" Claim Near Wamego. The Wamego Times says: A. TJ. P, agent has been here this week trying to make leases of a strip of land 50 feet wide upon either side of the company's right of way, claiming that 200 feet wide was granted the company by con gress prior to the issuing of patents in the oid Pottawatomie reserve, and in two tracts owned bv the Peaks in sec tion 12-10-8, one piece owned by Young kampf in sect'on 11-10-8. and another owned by D. V. Sorague in section 14-10-9. All the land adjoining the rail way east of Wamego, in the Pottawa tomie reserve, is affected, as the lease agent, C. A. Mathews, informs us. No land owner, however, will acknowledge the companyTs claim without protest, and it will no doubt end in a lawsuit. This is the same sort of a fisht the Union Pacific is making all along its line, and T. F. Garver of this city is attorney for some of the narties who are fighting the claim of the railway. HELP FOR HARDING. Wm. Cotter Appointed Manager of General Manager's Office. The Missouri Pacific system has ere ated a new office, that of manager, and William Cotter, general superintendent of the Iron Mountain, has been promoted to the position. He will take charge of the operation of the Missouri Pacific and the Iron Mountain and the leased operated and independent lines of the system on October 1. His headquarters will be in t-t. Bouis. This new office is made necessary on account of the increased mileage and business of the Missouri Pacific system. The department of general manager of the Missouri Pacific is now practical ly under the jurisdiction of three ofn cials. They are: Russell Harding, third vice president and general manager; William Cotter, manager; F. J. McLean, assistant to general manager. C 0FFE YVILLE AGENT SCORES.

The origin of the grape is obscure. owing to its great antiquity, but we nave evidence that it was one or the earliest fruits cultivated. Whether its intrinsic value was understood and rec ognized by the ancient and primitive usbandmen of Noah's time, or whether because of their deliclousness and re freshing juices the grape was a reign- ng ravonte with the Greeks long te- ore Homer s time, the remotest history cites that wine pressed from grapes was considered the appropriate offering to tne deity among the Hebrews, and to the gods among all the polytheistic na tions. The grape, following the course of other fruits in their dispersion through out the different parts of the earth, has Become one of the most important ana luscious fruits of the new world. While we have certain well known varieties r native grape, the finest and most luscious varieties of those which thrive out doors or are cultivated in grape ries east of the Mississippi, have been brought to us from the vineyards planted hundreds of years ago acrosa tne sea. (irapes are so beautiful and de licious; so nourishing, and, believed to possess curative qualities as well, they should be cultivated in sufficient quanti ties to come within the means of all during the greater part of the year. They should be served more frequently as a dessert than the sweet dishes. which are often too rich and complete to follow a hearty meal. The grape cure, which generally prc duces tte best results, owes much of its success, no doubt, to abstemiousness from rich diet, but aided by a good sup porting diet and the fair amount of ex ercise involved, as the patients must take their doses direct from the vine. Change of air and scene may likewise play a considerable part in the cure. Grapes, when taken in excess, will act as aperients; they are recommended to persons who suffer from disorders in duced by sedentary habits. While grapes are enjoyed by almost every one and are in most all cases beneficial, the quantity eaten must vary to suit indi vidual cases and physical conditions. W Ith the exception of dates it is stated that grapes exceed all other fruits in the amount of sugar they contain. In the unripe fruit the extremely sour juice in the skin overpowers completely the weetness of the grape itself, and in the green grape the juice is sweeter than the whole fruit. The acid of grapes is mainly tartaric acid combined with pot ash, lime and magnesia. Prof. Lebert in his observations on the "grape cure" recommends it "to those who are neither ill or well, who are fatigued by a two. exciting and somewhat intemperate life; or, weak ened by severe illness, are convalescing lowly; or who, leading habitually a too sedentary and too laborious exist ence, find under proper hygienic condl- ions, with the grapes to regulate the digestive functions, that the passage of debility and fatigue into real disease may often be prevented." 1 he aperient effect of the grapes may not be noticed at once, but will usually show itself after a few days. In prescribing the cure, the nature of the disease should be considered, as this will determine the quantity of fruit to be taken per day. GRAPE JUICE. A beverage fast growing into popular favor because of its cH-liciousness and its being wholly free from alcohol is the unfermented juice of the grape. It used for communion service, festival wine, as a flavoring In many forms of desserts and also as a valuable unstim uiating tonic. It Is easily made at home if one desires to manufacture their own beverage, although there are guaranteed brands on the market. o make untermented wine or grape juice select a very juicy variety o; grape, like Concord; they should be well ripened but perfect. W ash them thor oughly through cold water, pick from the stems and put in double boilers or in vessels which may be fitted over oth ers containing boiling water. Do not add w-ater to the grapes but scald them thoroughly until the skins burst open. Pour into jelly bags made of two thick nesses ot cheesecloth and let the juice drain oft witnout squeezing the fruit. If tiie juice is not perfectly clear strain again. Allow tour pounds of best gran ulated or crushed loaf sugar to every 25 pounds of fruit. Bring to boiling point. skim carefully and then bottle or seal in cans like truit. Keep in a cool dark place. If you seal up in bottles, first boil the corks in hot water and be sure that they are pounded in until the bottle is perfectly airtight. ANOTHER METHOD. Select grapes of the best quality and very juicy. Strip them from the stems and wash thoroughly; reject all the im perfect fruit. Put them in a porcelain lined kettle, allowing half a pint of wa ter to every three quarts of fruit. When they begin to boil skim them them care fully and allow to cook slowlv for ten minutes. Pour boiling hot into jelly bags and let all the clear Juice run .off; STRANGER THAN FICTION. A Remedy Which Has Revolutionized the Treatment of Stomach Troubles, The remedy is not heralded as a won derful discovery nor yet a secret patent medicine, neither is it claimed to cure anything e.cept dyspepsia, indigestion and stomach troubles witn wnicn nine out of ten suffer. The remedy is in the form of pleas ant tasting tablets or lozenges, contain ing vegetable ana lruit essences, pur? aseptic pepsin (government test,) golden seal and diastase. The tablets are sold by druggists under the name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. Many interesting experiments to test the digestive power of Stuart's tablets show that one grain of the active principle contained in them is -sufficient to thoroughly digest 3.UW grains of raw meat, eggs and other wholesome iooa. Stuart's Tablets do not act upon the bowels like after-dinner pills and cheap cathartics, which simply irritate and in flame the intestines without having any effect whatever in digesting food or cur ing indigestion. If the stomacn can oe rested ana as isted in the work of digestion it will very soon recover its normal vigor, as no organ is so much abused and over worked as the stomacn. : This is the secret, if there is any secret, of the remarkable success of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, a remedy practically unknown a few years ago and now the most widely know n of any treatment for stomach weakness. Thi3 success has been secured entirel upon its merits as a digestive pure ana simple because there can be no stomach trouble if the food is promptly digested Stuart's Digestive Tablets act entirely on the food eaten, digesting it com pletely, so that it can be assimilated into blood, nerve and tissue. They cure dyspepsia, water brash, sour stomach, gas and bloating after meals, becaus they furnish the digestive power which weak stomachs lack and unless that lack is supplied it is useless to attemp to cure by the use cC "tonics," "pills and cathartics, which have absolutely no digestive power. Stuart s Dyspepsia Tablets can t found at all drug stores and the regula use of one or two of them after meals will demonstrate the! merit better than ftty ether argument.

They are so pure so preserved that the older the soap the better. 4 u ttlMl MAJ1 Pay us ten times can make nothing anyone. So pure that you can read through it, and one-sixth is glycerin. JAMES S.

Write for Bst. then squeeze the skins and pulp over a separate kettle, as this iuice will not be so clear and will need a secona training and separate boiling. Boll the liquid for half an hour, then bottle, cork tightly, pour paraffine or sealing fax over them and keep where it is cool, dark and dry. This can be made without suar if it can be kept in a very cool place, otherwise it will be safer to add a cup of sugar to every quart of juice. TO KEEP GRAPES FRESH. The following method has oeen used with perfect success by those who have their own vines and is wortn trying at least. Allow the grapes to remain on the vines as long as possible without their freezing. Select a cool, dry day for gathering them. Handle them en tirely by the stems to avoid nruismg them and cut leaf and stem as long as possible. Pick over carefully, rejecting 11 over-ripe, lmpertect ouncnes. ra as soon as gatherea. isew, wooaen cheese boxes with close fitting lids are the best for packing, but heavy paste board boxes, w ithout a break, will ans wer nicely. Get a supply of dry cork dust from the drug store; this is easilv obtained and inexpensive, and is a non-conductor of heat and will keep tne grapes dry and in perfect condition. Put a layer of the cork in the boxes, then lay in the grapes carefully, not allowing the ETPDes to touch one anotner. Lover well with the cork dust and add another layer of grapes, and continue in this wav -until tho box is full. Put on the covers and fasten down securely and put the boxes in a dry. cool place and they will keep for months. CANNED GRAPES. Grapes are not canned entire on ac count of their objectionai seeds. n vou desire them for a sauce to serve with rich fatty meat like roast pork or goose, use the green grapes, and fox grapes, if you can get them; ripe grapes are nicer for other meats. .Stem the grapes, wash and drain them, then pulp, putting the skins in one earthen crock and pulp into another. Place the crocks n vessels of hot water ana neat siowiy. Stir the pulp frequently, with a woexlen spoon, to separate the seeds. Now rub the pulp tnrougn a cotanaer to remove the seeas; put it into a pi e- .-rung net tle with the skins and allow half a j pound of sugar to each quart of the pulp and skin, if ripe grapes, and a lit tle more lor tne green grapes, uniew you like a very tart sauce. Boil the whole until the skins are tender, then can and seal. GRAPE JETjLT. Wild grapes that havejust commenced to turn are the nicest for jelly but cul tivated grapes which are just beginning to ripen make a delicious and beautiful jelly. If too ripe your jelly will not be firm, while it will be dark colored. Wash the grapes, stem them; put into a stone crock or porcelain-lined kettle and mash them until broken. Then heat slowly until all the juice is drawn out. Turn into cheesecloth jelly bags and hang up to drain, do not squeeze until the juice ceases to drip, then squeeze the pulp remaining in the bags over another kettle. Allow pint of sugar to pint of juice. Heat the sugar in oven, while the juice is boiling. Boil it ten minutes, skimming until clear: then aetd the sugar and boil ten minutes longer (timing it from time it begins to boil hard). If your fruit is in proper state for jelly-making twenty minutes rapid boiling will make a clear, firm, but "quivery" jelly. Boiling it too long will darken it and it will not be so delicate in flavor. CANNED GREEN GRAPES. Stem the grappa, wash and drain.

Dr. Pavy, of Kngland has shown that diabetes is due to an imperfect digestion of starch and its absorption in the blood. It is impossible for the stomach to digest cereal foods taken in the form of mush, in which the starch is less than half cooked. This is one of the reasons why diabetes is becoming so common in this country and British Is lands. French physicians long ago dis covered that toasted bread or dextri nized starch is an excellent remedy in diabetes. The best dextrinized food, however, is known to be Toasteti Wheat Flakes, sweetened with Malt Honey, made by the Battle Creek Sanitarium Food Co. These flakes are thin, thor oughly cooked and browned. They are very appetizing, partly pre-digested end quickly assimilable. toes are on inferior variety and quality. CANNED OriNCES.
