Misplays were costly to Phila Malaria is an atmospheric poison which we unconsciously breathe into Br system. The blood in its constant passage through the lungs absorbs the germs, and they destroy the rich, red corpuscles of this vital fluid and reduce it to such a weak, watery condition that it is unable to properly nourish the system, and disease gets a foothold. Then the symptoms of Malaria, such as pale, sallow complexions, weak vitality, poor appetite, deranged di gestion , and perhaps chills and fever show that the trouble is affecting every part of the body. Malaria also affects the liver, producing a chronic state of bilious ness, and often a long spell of fever follows when the blood becomes fully contaminated with the poison Chronic Sores and Ulcers, boils, aches and pains, and skin affections of various kinds often result from this insidious disease if the poison is allowed to accumulate in the blood la sufficient quan tities. Malaria must be removed from the system through the circulation, and for this purpose nothing equals S. S. S. This great remedy goss down into the blood and drives out all germs, microbes and poisons, and perma nently cures Malaria, S. S. S. not only cleanses the blood of the cause, but furnishes it with the healthful properties it needs, so that instead of a weak, germ-infected stream, spreading disease throughout the system, it becomes a rich, red fluid, nourishing the body and enabling it to resist disease. S. S. S. is also the greatest of all tonics, and builds up and invigorates the entire system while ridding the blood of the germs of Malaria. Persons who are suffering from Malaria will be pleased with the prompt and pleasant re sults produced by the use of S. S.

Nelson Enroti te to Frisco. Kansas City, June 10. Battling Nel son, he with the corrugated map and cauliflower sails, was at Union depot yesterday morning for a few minutes en route to Frisco. Battling is going to the land of earthquakes and much graft to renew hostilities with James Edward Britt, a native son who fell a victim to his prowess two years ago. The battle will probably take place on the night of July 3, a day in advance of the highly advertised Squires-Burns championship match.- -. WESTERN ASSOCIATION GOSSIP. WHERE THEY PLAY TOMORROW: Topeka at Joplin. Wichita at Oklahoma City. Springfield at Leavenworth. Webb City at Hutchinson. Both games played in the Western Association yesterday afternoon were shutouts. Fleharty beat Webb City by a score of 5 to 0 and McFarland of Okla homa City beat Wichita by a, score of 6 to 0. And these same two pitchers are going to be playing some ball before the season is over and in fact they have al ready got started. McFarland is an old head at the business and has a good as sortment to work In connection -with his head. Judging from his records he Is the most consistent pitcher in the as sociation today and his work with Ok lahoma City demonstrates the fact that he is a good head at managing teams. Fleharty of Hutchinson is a find for which credit should be given to Spencer Arthur Abbott of our own team. Abbott when managing Hutchinson last season picked Fleharty from the bushes. He was nervous last season and the Hutch inson management raised a rumpus with Abbott for paying two hundred dollars for him. It would take several checks of two hundred dollars to get him away from Hutchinson now; He is known as "The Pride of Saltville,v -,;-J; ri . Since joining the team'about ten days ago Bunton has won five games for the White Sox. Halla is also pitching great ball. Oklahoma Post: There was much re joicing among the supporters of the Mets yesterday afternoon when it de veloped that the board of directors of the local club has decided to turn the entire management of the team over to McFarland. The Hutchinson Independent has at last found a reason for the release of Forrester by the Topeka team. Accord ing to their reason Forrester has been going the pace that kills. This is but another of those malicious assertions concocted by the sporting editor of that paper against the members of the To peaka team. Forrester, as -a matter of fact, is temperate and such assertions as these are libelous. s -'''-.. Ernest Quigley, the new manager of the Leavenworth team, seems to In spire some enthusiasm Into the ranks of the Convicts. Jack Henry returned from Oklahoma City last Saturday- night. His foot, which was spiked by Bill Rapps on a play at the plate, is.ln a bad condition and will possibly keep him out of the game for several days. In the meantime Tonneman, late of Puello, 19 performing on the receiving line for the Champs. Springfield, the team that trounced Topeka three out of four in the series on the home grounds early in the season, is now going down the 'toboggan at a rapid rate while Hutchinson and Webb City are fighting It out for second place. THE CITY MAKES 6,000 GAIN. Population of Kansas City, Kansas, Is Making a Remarkable Growth. Kansas City, Kan., June 10. The Hoye Directory company estimates that the population of this city has in creased 6.000 since 1906. In 1906, according to the figures of the directory company, the population was 89,656, an increase of about 9,000 over that of the year preceding. This year the directory company says the population Is about 95.500, and may reach 96,000. The statistics obtained by the directory canvassers although they have not been compiled, also show a substantial growth for that city In factories and homes. OUT OF THE COTTONWOOD. A Fisherman Catches a 56 Pound Cat That Measures Four Feet. Cottonwood Falls, Kan., June 10. Glen Freeborn caught a catfish on his tret line in-the Cottonwood river that weighed 54 pounds and measured 4 feet in length. The flsh was brought to town and photographed. Killed by the Cars. Wellington, Kan., June 10. Ralph Garfield, son of Conductor H. E. Gar field, of this city, was run over and killed at Kiowa about midnight of Saturday. His train -. was dropping some box cars on a side track; and it is thought he lost his balance when the cars struck and was thrown upon the track. He was 22 years of age and unmarried.

Spread of 2 Cent Fare Legisla ! tion Was General. Eighteen States Passed Low Rate Laws This Year. : TO SUPREME COURT. Question to Be Determined in One Fell Swoop. Other Items of Interest to Kailway 1'eople. The most popular, form of railway legislation In vogue with state legisla tures in the sessions just closed or about to. close was the reducing the rates of passenger, fare. A summary of such legislations shows that eight een states in all have reduced the pas senger rate to two cents . a mile. These states are; Alabama, Arkan sas, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Mis souri, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota,' Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Wisconsin. - The bills either have gone into ef fect when signed by the governor or within sixty days after their passage. In many states the bills were passed in spite of strenuous opposition on the part of the roads' and with the enact ment of the measures the fight against the roads has only half been won. The representatives - of the roads wilt oppose in the courts every 2-cent fare law that has been passed iri west ern states. If the roads win in the United States supreme court the east ern roads will take steps to upset the 2-cent fare laws of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and other states. Soma of the rail-way managers be lieve that the best plan Is to appeal to the interstate commerce commission against the , application to through traffic of the 2-cent rate In the various states. The attorneys for the roads, -while agreeing that the commission would rule that 2-cent fare was un reasonably low, particularly in the .western states, believe that too much time would be consumed in reaching a final decision in the matter if it were taken up 'first .by the commis sion. . - The roads traversing Indiana and Michigan have , agreed to make ef fective without -delay the 2-cent rate on state traffic,, but will not reduce their rate on interstate traffic to a basis of two cents until the courts have ruled that they must do so. Such a ruling would cost the railroads be tween Chicago and the Atlantic sea board millions -ef dollars. Some of the attorneys fonTailroads believe that the supreme court-will decide that the state -.laws are unconstitutional be cause xl their effect on interstate traffic. In signing" the 2-oen fare law in Illinois, Governor Deneen said that he did so in th-3 full knowledge that extended litigation.? in the courts wo-uldn be-necessary to establish or H prove tire vaUdity-ef-, the measures. SANTA Fp AT HUTCHINSON. Much Money Being jSpeiit In Many ' ' ; Improvements There. i - Hutchinson, Kan., June 10. -When the work now being -planned In the Hutchinson yards of the Santa Fe company is done the capacity will be a little more than doubled. This will mean that the extensions that have been going on here for years have failed by- half to keep up with the growth of business in Hutchinson and on the Santa Fe road. When the new freight house Is built and ready for use it is probable that there will be less reason for a kick about the Main street crossing being blocked than for a great num ber of -years. -When the new yards and the new freight house are ready for use the switching : across Main street will amount to very little, for there Is to be room enough to' do this work both In the east and west ends of the yards. Superintendent Ayer, who was In town yesterday, says there is to be a new track built out from the junction this side of the round house nearly to the Missouri Pacific crossing, west of town, on the Kinsley branch. This will make a ."lead" to the switch yards west of Adams street and prac tically all of the work In those yards will be lone with-the switching crew at the west end. When the new freight house Is put In use the "lead", reach ing to Its tracks will not come in from Main street but from the west, thus keeping the switching of the ' local merchandise cars to the freight plat-, forms In the other direction and away from Main street. '' There Is to be a double track built from downtown all the way to the Rock Island crossing, in the east end of town. This will later be connected with the double track that is being built In from Newton to Hutchinson. This will make the meeting place farther east, and away from the busi ness downtown, The new yards,, to be built on the thirty acres of land acquired in the east end of town, east of the Rock Island crossing, will be a big thing to facilitate the rapid movement of all classes of trains. All of the through freights, eastbound. especially, will be stopped and switched there. There is to be a telegraph station there' for the big freight business and the road will also have a station there for the transaction of the business of han dling these trains. The yard room will be made big enough to make It pos sible for Hutchinson to take care of well on to 2.000 cars in the entire yards. This Is. needed, too, with the big freight business being done by the road now. USES ITS OWN SLEEPERS. Texas Line Also Rednces the Rates for Berths. Dallas. Tex., June 10. The Texas Central has given notice to the State Railroad commission that it has bought its own sleepers, to be deliver ed July 1, and consequently applied for authority to adopt rates of $1.50 for lower and $1 for upper berths be tween Waco and R.otan. 268 miles. There is keen gratification in. the Railroad commission, and the rates applied for will undoubtedly be ap proved In the hearing to reduce the sleeping-car rates. Other Texas rail roads asserted that they could not se cure sleepers, and went Into the feder al courts at Dallas and Austin, joined by the Pullman company, and prevent ed the commission, several months ago, from enforcing the rates now adopted by the Texas Central. As the Texas Central has no com petition over its entire line, extending from Waco to Rotan, the route being northwest and southeast 'through a part of Central Texas, its action can hardly have any actual effect. As "no competitive road operates in the ter ritory occupied by the Texas Central there la no road in such a position that it can be forced to meet the Texas Central's rate. - ' - ' But for the very reason that therp is no competition for the Texas Central between Waco and Rotan, the appli cation for permission to make lower rates than those prevailing on the Pullman should become a moral In-flnence.-'If the Texas Central can pur chase and operate sleeping cars of its own,, and if it can make lower rates than the Pullman, even without com petition, the members of the Railroad commission and the public are likely to hold that larger and richer compa nies can do the same. The St. Louis Republic published, some time ago, an article stating that the St. Louis Car company was build ing a new type of car, being a com bination sleeping and- parlor coach, for the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton. The company which controls the pat ents on this coach Is endeavoring to become a strong rival to the Pullman company. ; and . It is putting cars In commission on several eastern roads. The electric lnterurban lines oper ating out of St. Louis have sleeping cars or their own. The rates on these sleepers are lower than those on the Pullmans.. The movement inaugurated In Texas may result In the railroads owning and operating their own sleeping cars. The Canadian systems do this. AGAIN ASKING QUESTIONS. Commerce Commission After Informa - -; tion on Pay of Solicitors. Local railroad men declare they are at a loss to understand the motive be hind the latest move of the interstate commerce commission in asking ques tions as to the commissions paid solici tors for securing business. Circulars re questing answers to a number of ques ,lons along this line have been re ceived by the roads, and replies must be in the bands of the commission by Juno 15. A hearing will follow, after which. It 13 understood, a ruling on the subject will be made. - - How any commission paid to an out sider for securing business can be con strued as a rebate is what puzzles the railroad officials, and unless the govern- mAr- .viwife n nvnva V. i , r.. , ..V. - ,,y mission is a rebate, they can see no particular reason for making It the sub ject of an Inquiry. Besides, the point is made that so far as the passenger bus iness is concerned, most of the roads long ago gave up the practice of secur ing business through outsiders. "In the old days," said a prominent local official yesterday, "it used to be the custom to pay commissions to an extensive scale to many people. But the practice has been abandoned by all the big roads." . The questions asked "by the commis sion in regard to the passenger business are as follows: "What commission does your company pay to solicitors of passenger business who do not act as ticket agents, but who devote their entire time to the ser vice of your company? "What commission does your company pay to solicitors of passenger business who do not act as ticket agents, and who do not devote their entire time to the service of your company? "What commission does your company pay to employes of other carriers as compensation for soliciting - or routing passenger business over your railway or any portion thereof ? --v - "Do you compensate ny persons en gaged or serving as ticket agents with a commission on business or tickets sold? "Give full information as to any other commissions paid by your company on passenger business." A TRAVELING PRESIDENT. Harahan Covered 78,000 Miles on In spection Trips in One Year. President Harahan, of the , Illinois Central, has been for 25 years an in veterate inspector of his road. While he was vice president and in other of ficial capacities his specialty was go ing over the road. This constant rid ing the rails on the part of so prac tical a man has kept him in close touch with every mile of this great system. It has long been the com ment of railroad men that Mr. Hara han was probably . the leading in spector of the country.-It was thought that when he became president he would take things somewhat . easier and devote -less time to beating over the ties, but he has shown no disposi tion to curtail his continued inspec tion trips. Last year Mr. Harahan in actual work connected with the road cov ered 78,000 miles. In three months he went over 25,000 miles of his road, consuming two-thirds of the entire time in travel and one-third at his headquarters in Chicago. He covers his -braneh lines, side tracks, and every possible field that he may be In touch with all angles of the road. It is the exception rather than the rule to find the Illinois Central's president In his office in Chicago. REPORT ON BROKEN RAILS. Harriman Officials Find a Lot of Them. New York, June 10. Following the last meeting of the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific directors, E. H. Har riman made . public a letter from J. Kruttsehnltt, vice president and di rector of operation and maintenance, stating, that on these lines during the month of February last 449 rails had been "fractured in service, and that of these 179 were of ninety-pound sec tion, and had been in track for six months or less. At the same time it was announced that the Harriman lines had placed an order with the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad company for 150,000 tons of open-hearth steel rails for 1908 delivery. In an interview E. H. Gary, chair man of the United States Steel cor poration, : replied to the criticisms of the quality of rails made by the Bessemer process, saying the need was for heavier sections. He also said that when a contract for rails is placed "the steel company receives exact stipulations and specifications as to their composition," but neglected to add that-the specifications used call for the product the steel company is willing to furnish and not what the railroads wish to buy.

Creeks Filled and the Neosho Hirer Up Six Feet. The Corn Is a Trifle Late But in Excellent Condition. ' Emporia, Kan,, June 10. "I have thirty-five acres of upland wheat that will yield twenty-five bushels to the acre, without any more rain," said W. L. Spencer of near Admire, Saturday. Mr, Spencer sold 900 bushels of last year's wheat for 91 cents per bushel Friday. Mr. Spencer further said that the crops In north Lyon county are in excellent condition. A' heavy rain fell in the north and east part of the county Thursday night. This rain filled all the creeks in the north part of the county, and the Neosho river was up six feet. Although the corn Is late it is in excellent -condition,, and the indica tions deem to DOint to a big crop. While this part of the county received none of the rain that fell over north and east Lyon county, the corn Is not suffering for rain, A few of the farmers say that good hot wheather for a week, is what tne corn reaiiy ueeus.
