Gossip and Matters of Interest in Itailroad Circles. New York, "Dec. 1. Great interest is manifested in Wail street over the announcement that J. P. Morgan will take the Zimmerman railroad, the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton, off the hands of the Krie to the great cost of the Wali street financier. An nouncement was made a, couple of days ago that the Erie had intended to renounce its purchase. Because M'irfraii had hfii deceived about the property the Krie was about to bo iu-V'ive-il hi a loss. Morgan sent word to tin- Krie directors that he would take the ralh-ond off their hands. According- t,:. the story told in Wall street Russell Harding's resignation from the Krie and the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton was due to the fact that he, then with the latter road, overvalued' it and that when Morgan sained control he found this out. Harding in the meantime had been made general manager of the Krie. He suddenly severed his connection with both roads and announced that he had retired from active railroad work. Itussell Harding when seen about this sNiry denied that there was any trouble over the transfer of the road, or that as far as he knew, the road had proved not up to expectations. "That is all news to me," he said. iiiUiiiwi o til it tiwsjyy TKZIFv HEALTH RESTORED l'asp!p.68 of Thousands of Homes Cut . fa ly.i,4 E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com. f ound and fctn.

In the latter part of September it was announced that J. P. Morgan & Co. had bought from the H.' B. Hollins syndicate the subscription rights of 56. Out) of the 63.000 shares of Cincin nati, Hamilton & Dayton, held in a voting trust at 160. A few days later came the announcement that the Krie had decided to purchase this stock from the Morgan firm. At that time there was manifest some opposition to the taking over of tne Cin cinnati, Hamilton & Dayton by the Krie and Wall stret heard that President Un derwood himself did not believe entirely in the properties. Money was actually paid by the Krie, however, and all ar rangements wre made to finance this purchase by the sale of 12 million dollars of the 4 per cent, bonds of l'.tf. A trip of inspection was made by Presidt-nt Un derwood and several of the vice presi dents, accompanied by Russell Harding. At that time, it has been learned, the Krie men's suspicions were aroused that some of the companies controlled by the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton would not especially benefit the Erie. Mr. Morgan also looked into the properties after the sale- The results of these investigations, it was said, convinced Mr. Morgan and the Krie officials that the carrying out of the bargain would do great harm to the Krie. Altogether Krie men decided the "gooit" delivered were not up to sample." Mr. Morgan decided the same thing and at tended the monthly meeting of the Krie board to tell the directors so and to make an offer to take back the shares of the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton stock, thus releasing the Krie from its part of tii" bargain. It was expected that an official statement would b made by his firm as to the outcome of this new deal, but none was made, (leorg vv'. Perkins, who with Mr. 8 tone, was active in the original transaction, said: "J know nothing about any statement to be issued. If there is one, nothing bad been said to me about it. Tou will have to see some other member of the linn about that." Harry Hoilins. of H. B. Hollins & Co., would make no comments. 'We're out of it. We've got nothing to do with it any more," said he. TRAFHC IS ESORMOVS. Graphic Presentation of Its l-'igures for l"irst Qaurter. In commenting on the fact that eighty three railroads report an increase of $:sn, SHO.'INO for the three months ended Sep tember 30, as compared with the like quarter of Vm. the Wail Street Journal observes that few realize the true mean ing of these figures. For the sake of ar gument, suppose the entire increase is due to the freight earnings. It means that the railroads have handled over 30,-O-m.Oml more tons freight in these three months than they handled in the same three month3 last year. The average haul on each ton of freight was about 13. miles. The number of tons one mile would be about 4,50(,ono,000. which is nearly eoual to the entire freight busi ness of the Chicago & Northwestern for a full year. In other words, the people of the United States have given these eighty-three railroads an increase in business during the three months which, if continued for the rest of the vear, will give them an inreeased orofit nearly equal to the entire freight business of the Northwestern. St. Paul, Rock Island and Illinois Central in 1904. The record is eloquent of national prosperity. WIIX MOVE WICHITA SHOPS. Missouri Pacific to Transfer Plant From Downtown District. Wichita, Kan., Dec. 1. A twenty-five acre tract of land has been purchased adjoining the stockyards district, on the northern boundary of this city, by the Missouri Pacific railroad and steps have been taken to secure fifteen acres more. The company will move its switch yards and shops from the downtown district to the new site. Contracts have been let for twelve miles of sidetrack and plans drawn for a twenty-eight-stall roundhouse. Work will be begun at once. Shops will be gradually added until the equipment here is sufficient to take care of work coming from branches of the Missouri Pacific operated through and out of the city. OP.IGIX OF ENGINE WHISTLE. Steam One Developed Because or a Slight Accident. Uocomotives had no whistles seventy five years ago. The engineer kept by his side a tin horn, which he blew before reaching the curves and dangerous cross ings. But the noise was feeble. An Ktiglish farmer's cart was run down on the way to market in and 1.000 eggs. 100 pounds of butter, two horses una one man were dumped in one great onulet on tiie rails. The railway had to pay the damages. The president sent for George Stevenson, and said angrily: "Our engineers can't blow their horns loud enough to clear the tracks ahead. You have made your steam do so much, why don't you make it blow a good loud horn for us?" Stevenson pondered. An idea came to him. He visited a musical instrument maker, and had constructed a horn that gave a horrible screech when blown by steam. From this horn the locomotive whistle of today descended. NEGROES WORK ON ORIENT.

Owing to the Thanksgiving rates in effect from Wednesday last until Mon day of next week on both the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific and the Atchison, Topek.a & Santa Fe. a large number of persons left town Wednesday night and Thursday morning to pass the holiday with friends and relatives in the coun try and in nearby cities. The rate of a fare and a third was made by the rail roads, as more of an experiment rather than a regular holiday rate, but so many persons took advantage of it that it will probably be made a fixture for the fu tuhe. KOBBERS AT SANTA I'E DEPOTS. Visit Two of Them in Oklahoma and Get Little Loot. Arkansas City, Kan.. Dec. 1. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe depot at Quay, Ok., was broken into and robbed on Wednesday night according to the advices received at the disvision offices here yesterday. The robbers failed to get into the safe and only got a small sum of money which was in the cash drawer. A few hours later an attempt was made, probably by the same per sons, to rob the station at Yale, Ok., three miles from Quay. The robbers awoke the agent, who fired several A Great Physiologist Once Said That the "Way to Keep the Stomach Healthy Is to Exercise It. But He Did Not Tell How to Make It Healthy. The muscles of the body can be de veloped by exercise until their strength has increased manifold, and a proper amount of training each day will ac complish this result, but it is some what doubtful whether you can in crease the digestive powers of the stomach by eating indigestible food in order to force it to work. Nature has furnished us all with a perfect set of organs, and if they are not abused they will attend to the business required of them. They need no abnormal strength. There is a limit to the weight a man can lift, and there is also a limit to what the stomach can do. The cause of dyspepsia, indigestion and manv similar' diseases is that the stomach has been exercised too much and it is tired or worn out. Not exer cise but rest is what it needs. To take something into the stomach that v. ill relieve it from its work for a short time something to digest the food will give it a rest and allow it time to rearain its strength. The proper aid to the digestive or gans is Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, which cure dyspepsia, indigestion, gas on the stomach and bowels, heartburn, palpitation of the heart, and all stom ach diseases. Rest and invigoration is what the stomach cots when you use Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, for one grain of the active principle in them is sufficient to digest 3.000 grains of food. The Tablets increase the flow of gas tric juice, and prevent fermentation, aciditv and sour enactions. Do not attempt to starve out dys pepsia. You need all your strength. The common sense method is to di gest the food for the stomach and give it P- re-.t. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets do not make the cure, but enable the organs to throw off unhealthy conditions. Perfect dieestion means perfect health, for under these conditions only do the different organs of the body work right and receive the building up material found in pure blood. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are a nat ural remedy and are a specific for stomach trouble". The ablest physi cian prescribe them. The Tablets are pleasant to the taste, and are composed of fruit and vegetable extracts, golden seal and pepsin. i At ail an? 5 storey 50 cx-nis per One of the Controlling Clique Liqui dating His Holdings. New York, Dec. 1. It has been reported in Wall street for the past few days that W. B. Leeds, one of the active men in the so-called Rock Island party, control ling the greatly enlarged Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific railroad, had decided to sever his connection with the active management of its affairs. Ill health, ac cording to one version of the story, was assigned, but in other quarters where the same report was current, it was stated that Mr. Ueeds' decision to sever his con nection with the property was due to friction with his colleagues. It was impossible to obtain a confir mation of the report yesterday. W. II. Moo-e, one of the directors and members of the Rock Island clique, said that he was not aware that Mr. Leeds contem plated resigning from the board. Another director stated that Mr. Leeds had not been paying much attention to business affairs within the last few months, main ly on account of his health. In stock exchange circles, however, it was stated that the selling of Rock Island for the last few weeks was due to liquidation of the Leeds holdings. THE OUTER BELT RAILWAY.

The Greasy Contents Made a Bad Fire to Handle. Kansas Cily, Kan., Dec. 1. Two S story brick warehouses located at the corner of Baird street and Kansas ave nue, the property of the Standard Oil mmnv. and 10.000 barrels of "heavy" oil, lubricating oil and other oil, were totally destroyed by fire Thanksgiving. The loss is rouehlv estimated at $150,000. One of the buildings was 150 feet long by u0 feet wide, and the other 100 teet long by 50 feet wide. They were situated about ten feet anart. The blaze was discovered by a motor man on a passing street car. The en gineer was immediately notified but the fire had a good start and it was too late to pave the buildings and their in flammable contents. It Is thought that the blaze started in the elevator shaft, but this is not definitely known and the employes of the company have been unable to discover the origin of the fire. The oil which made it impossible to check the flames, was stored mostly in wooden barrels, besides, many smai! cans of axle grease and other lubricat ing oils, and both buildings were taxed to their utmost capacity, a recent ship ment having been stored in the ware houses. The six fire companies of this city, and four from Kansas City, Mo., arriv ed soon after the fire was discovered. The intense heat crumbled the walls of the buildings and the flames leaped high, causing a great deal of unneces sary alarm among the residents of that district. The uneasiness was occasion A BUSINESS FRIEND To Be Counted on. Under All Cir cumstances.

Since the government farm on the reservation in the low land along the Missouri river was turned over to the military there are only 153 acres left for the United States penitentiary. This small farm, however, yielded a remarkable crop this year, the value of which was probably more than any other farm of like size in the state of Kansas turn ed out. According to the table of J. W. Thornburg, superintendent of the farm, the total value of the crops raised this year reaches close to $15, 000. Where is there a farmer who made his land earn a hundred dollars an acre this year? The great value of the crop on the government farm is accounted for in a number of ways. The land is very fertile. Warden McClaughry allows Superintendent Thornburg as many men as he asks for, and Mr. Thorn burg is an excellent farmer.
