THERE are thousands of American women whose duties call them out in all winds and weathers, many of whom sit with wet feet or stand all day, thus weakening and undermining their health. Women, however, for the most part, spend their lives at home, and these women are willing and ambitious that their homes shall be kept neat and pretty, their children well-dressed and tidy, and do their own cooking, sweeping and dusting, and often washing, ironing and sewing for the entire family. Both of these classes call for our sympathy. Truly the work of such a woman is " never done," and is it any wonder that she down at the end of a few years, the back begins to ache, there is a displacement, inflammation or ulceration of certain organs, and the struggle to continue her duties are pitiful. native roots and herbs, is the exact medicine a woman needs whose strength is overtaxed- It keeps the feminine system in a strong and healthy Mrs. Pinkham's Invitation to Women.

Officers to Visit Ft. Leavenworth. Leavenworth. Kan.. May 22. Word was received at Fort Leavenworth to day that Major Korner. the Belgian secretary at Washington, and Captain Lesebure. the German secretary- Washington, would soon pay ciai visit to Fort Leavenwor' While in Chicago this week Martin A. Knapp. chairman of the interstate commerce commission, in repty to an inquiry, expressed the opinion that it will be legal for western roads, by in dependent action, to make rates in the certificate plan for the convention of the National Educational association in Lcs Angeles. He also said that if this is done no action will be taken by the commission. and added: "P.ates for special occasions may be confined to members j a certain organization. Whether the members are required to give proof before or after purchasing the original ticket is no affair of ours." "Many railroad men." it was suggest ed, "are greatly puzzled over one rul ing of the commission, which holds that reduced rates for special occasions may be confined to members cf a cer tain organization, and another ruling of the commission which holds that party rates must be thrown open to the public." There is a great deal of difference between the two," Mr. Knapp replied. "A. party rate is a permanent rate and one which is available for all times, one who desires to take advantage of one who dcsires to take advantage of it Special rates for special occasions are far different and different rules should apply to them." Chairman Knapp's statement regard ing the National Educational associa tion rates clears up that situation so far as the legality or illegality is con cerned. Eastern roads, however, with the exception of the Grand Truck, have refused to Join in making the rates on the certificate plan, and it remains to b," .n whether they wtll withdraw from their position, now that the Grand Trunk does so independently. It is a member of the Central Passenger as sociation, but not cf the Trunk Line caenger committee. though usually acting in harmony with the latter and being always represented at meetings and participating in action taken by the committee. The preposition now pending and pro ceed bv the Santa Fe and the Harri maa lines is to reduce the round trip rate frcm J64.50 to W2.50. and to make the return portion of tne ticket good only upon presentation of a memoer ship ticket in the association. In this way every holder of a ticket who ap peared at the validation office in Lo3 Xngeles would be required to step over to a counter and buy a 2 membership ticket in the association before the aent of "the railroads would validate . ? i r:br fnr n return trin.

The Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railroad company has filed suit against the government in the court of claims to recover $1.000.000. representing the value of lands which the company claims in Indian Terri tory. This is a continuation of the efforts of the railroad to obtain every alternate section of land for ten miles on each side cf the main Ifne right of way through the territory. The government offered such a grant with tha proviso that the land should not go to the rfad until it became public domain. The road claimed when the government op ened the land for allotment among the Indians it became pQbBc domain. The government denied this, claiming the land was simply being divided up among the Indians and was not then. and never wouia oeceme puoiu.- umusi Kansas was made trustee in the orig inal grant, and two ' years ago Gov ernor Hoch permitted the use of the state's name in a suit against the gov ernment to settle the controversy.

The governor's ac tion was a political Issue in Kansas last year, when the case was pending in the United States supreme court. The railroad now sues in Its own name. Joseph H.

New Chase, a rival "city" four miles away, and the Frisco Railroad company, on whose lines it is located, win by a decision of the interstate commerce commission in a bitter con tention for the depot.

Creek freedmen. who held the land on which the Frisco depot for merly stood, are turned down. They claimed $2,100 damage by the removal of the depot to the junction with the Missouri. Oklahoma and Gulf railroad, and complained that the "said defen dant now passed its trains through the town of Chase at full speed, against the will of the citizens thereof." The Frisco obtained the privilege of locating a townsite April 14. 1904. The depot was built a year before that. The complainants maintain that Old Chase has three stores, four families, a post office, two churches and two school houses. The learned counsel for the Frisco maintained that the town has only two stores and three houses. ASK KOIt A RECEIVER. Harri- The Liver is seldom healthy while coffee is the daily drink.

Highleyman, tax commissioner of the Gould lines in Missouri, was before the state board of equalization yesterday and stated that the net earnings of a road would perhaps fur nish the best basis upon which to fix the rate for its taxation. All of th oreratinsr expenses of the terminals at Kansas City, it was developed, are charged against the operating ex penses in Missouri, though there are eighteen miles of terminals in Kansas. To reconstruct the road and put It In Its present physical condition, be thought, would cost about $40,000 per mile, and believed those figures, given by former General' Manager Dod dridge, to be approximately correct, but he did not think the road should be assessed on what it would cost to build it, though that cost, in some re spects, of course, would be considered the valua of the road.. HARLAN PRAISES POLICY. Declares Tba Railways Intend to Deal Squarely. That the railroads have given sub stantial evidence of an intention to deal squarely and liberally with the public In the matter of compliance with the new rate law, says the Rail way Age. is the freely expressed opin ion of Commissioner Harlan, of the Interstate Commerce commission. In discussing this matter recently. Mr. Harlan called attention to the fact that many decisions had already been ren dered under the new law. and that none of them has been made the basis of an appeal to the courts or of any kind of technical or factitious opposi tion or delay. "And," Mr. Harlan added, "there Is a great mass of business in which the commission is coming to be more and more engaged, and which has grown much during the past two months, in volving the informal adjustment of controversies between shippers and carriers. These cases do not reach the stage of formal complaints or contest ed hearings. "A shipper, we will say. writes a let ter to the commission, setting forth some condition which he regards as a just cause cf complaint. The letter is taken up by the commission, and one of the commissioners writes to the carrier. "It may be that the commission is strongly of the opinion that the com plaint is justified and that the practice ought to be corrected. The carrier is told in an entirely unofficial way that such is the case. and. while no order is issued, it is suggested that the cause of complaint might be removed and the necessity for a formal complaint thus done away with. "In many of these cases perhaps. I may say. In most of these cases the carriers have met the commission and an adjustment has been reached with out the necessity of a formal com plaint, hearings, arguments and order." GROWING rTS OWN TIES. Louisville !nd Nashville Plants Ca talpas Alons Its Line. Another road which has set about providing a future supply of ties for its own use is the Louisville and Nash ville. It has had planted along its right of way from Carmi. III., to St. Louis a larre number of hard catalpa trees, the growth of which will be noted carefully. They are set eighteen feet apart and are to be tended by the section hands. The Louisville and Nashville contends that wooden ties are far preferable to metal ties of any kind. Catalpa ties, it Is said, will last for twenty years. It will take that time to grow the trees. IMPROVEMENTS ON THE R. I. Will Spend $125,000 on New Facili ties at Arkansas. Little Rock, Ark..

Ma-.- 12.- Is the postolnce department of the United States gov- ' ernmer.t froiny to officially d-c!are I Sunday to be a le?a? "working day?" This Question is said to be agitating j many of the organizations which have for their purpose the securing of a prope-r observance of the Sabbath. The question arises in the contro versy which the railroads of the en tire country are having with the de partment over the proposed reduction in the compensation awarded for transporting the mails. Religious peo ple in every part of the country are said to be watching the controversy with keen interest, which is being fed somewhat by the printed arguments which the railroads irsued in opposi tion to the order of the department which requires that "when the weight of the mails is taken on railroad routes the whole number of days the mails are weighed shall be used as a divisor for obtaining the average weight per day." , . The presidents of every big railroad system in the Vnited. States have signed a printed protest and argument against the enforcement of this rule, insisting that the legaJ "working days" only shall be considered, as has been tha case for over forty years. The now- order, they claim. trans gresses all precedent of law and of congress, and deliberately and in the face of such precedent, officially rec ognizes Sunday to be a legai "work ing day."
