'OS.J AMAZING PART OF LIFE MODERN IS RUSH AND HURRY No Time For Sufficient Exercise in Fresh Air to Maintain Digestive Organs in Good Condition. L. T. Cooper, the man who claims that stomach trouble is responsible for most ill-health, is continuing to at tract crowds of people. Cooper is explaining his theory and medicine to the public, and at present he Is the sensation of the day in Xew York. tWhile giving his opinion of the cause of so much sickness among the present generation, in a recent inter view. Cooper said: "The amazing part of modern life in this city, and every other in America, is the rush and hur ry. No one seems to have enough time. This very fact is responsible for much ill-health. As I have said be fore, poor digestion is at the bottom of all this tired, worn-out condition which afflicts modern people, but nothing is more necessary to keep the digestive organs working properly than exercise in the fresh air. and New Yorkers have no time for this. "The dailv life of the average New YTker-:is about - follows: After sleeping all night in a room with a low ceiling and poor ventilation. - he dresses in a rush, bolts his breakfast and runs for a car. He rides downtown in this car with the air foul from over breathing, and works until noon shut up tight in some factory or office building. At noon a hasty lunch and then back for the rest of the day in the same close quarters. When time to quit comes he piles into a car again. Jammed in with others like him. and spends thirty minutes in the stifling atmosphere getting home. He stuffs himself full of food, then goes to some theater with more street cars to get him there, or he stays at home and sits in an easy chair. "How long do you suppose the hu man stomach will perform its func tions properly under sue conditions? Is it any wonder that most people are half-sick? The one organ you cannot abuse and still stay well is the stom ach. I am successful simply because I have a medicine that regulates and tones up over-worked stomachs that no longer digest food properly." Among those who called on Cooper Monday afternoon was Mrs. William F. Hoffman, of 522 West One Hundred and Forty-Seventh street, who, when interviewed, said: "For several years I have been generally run down in health. Physicians diagnosed my case as nervous indigestion. I could not eat and was troubled with insomnia. I felt tired and discouraged all the time and had very little energy. I have two sisters who were also in poor health, their complaint being very much like mine: one of them, how ever, has had rneumatism ror some yea rs. "Some time ago 1 came nere, saw Mr. Cooper and got his medicine. It helped me almost at once, and I am now as well as I ever was in my life. eating well and sleeping soundly. My sisters started taking the medicine af ter seeing what it did for me. ana it has been just as effective for them. The one who had rheumatism is now perfectly well, although she had suf fered for years without relief. I con sider our experience very remarkable." Cooper's Xew Discovery, the medi cine that Is the talk of Xew York, is now on salt- at lending drag stores throughout the United States. .Ask your druggist for it. York Highlanders for the past six years, has been secured by George Tebeau to take charge of the local American association team.

Decision of Judge Meckel May Stop Annual County Enumeration. Emporia, Kan., Dec. 1. The decis ion of Judge Meckel of the Fifth ju dicial district here to sustain the mo tion to quash a writ of mandamus issued against the county assessors to compel them to take a new census of Emporia, brings to light a curious condition of facts. All of the counties of the state have been taking an an nual census, whereas if the finding of the court is sustained the law only calls for a census every ten years, thus causing the counties to pay out thou sands of dollars every year without the authority of law. The finding in the case was that the law only calls for a decennial census. The law of 1873 calling for an annual census was repealed bv an act in 1875 and for the suspicion that there will be an actual consolidation of the Chicago & Alton, the Toledo, St. Louis & Western, the Minneapolis & St. Louis, the Iowa Central and the Missouri, Kansas & Texas. It has been admitted that negotiations are about concluded for a close traffic agreement, involving all these lines, and that plans are under consideration for the building of links to connect them, and, in a practical way, form a new system. The impression is existent here that an agreement of -this kind, at least, will be made. But information received from 'reli able sources tends to show that a close traffic arrangement is contemplated as the first step toward an actual merger of the five companies. The sources: of this information are beyond question, and it is believed that a. tentative plan of consolidation is under consideration. When the Toledo, St. Louis & West ern acquired the Alton, there - was a proposition for merging these two lines immediately with the Minneapolis & St. Louis and the Iowa Central, and ulti mately with the Missouri, Kansas & Texas. The plan was stopped by the commercial and financial depression. There would be little difficulty in con solidating the Toledo. St. Louis & West ern, the Alton, the Minneapolis & St. Louis and the Iowa Central, as the same interests control all these pro perties. A. H. Joline, chairman and president of the Missouri. Kansas & Texas, is genera! counsel of the Toledo, St. Louis & Western,! and it is inferred that the relationship between him and the Hawley interests is intimate enough to afford a fair chance for the consid eration of a merger plan. It is said that the absorption of the Alton by the Toledo. St. Louis & West ern was only a temporary adjustment. The interstate commerce commission ordered the Rock Island interests to dispose of their control of the Alton, which was deemed a parallel and .com Shore to Cleveland, thence Big Four to Lafayette, and will be loaded on a flat car. moving as Ireight service. CONTROLLED BY PHONE. Trains on 6,000 MUes of Track Are -'. Now So Operated. New York. Dec. 1. The records of the American Railway association disclose the fact that more than 6.000 miles of main line tracks are now controlled by the telephone instead of the telegraph. The use oi ine pnone covers both the dis patching of .trains- and the so-called blocking" of trains, which is the opera tion between the various stations of the diock signal system. . In the opinion of railway experts there is not the slightest doubt that the new system will eventually reduce to a con siderable extent the number of accidents on American railwavs. Experiments and experience have taught the roads that for expediency, sarety. verity and stability me icit-craDn aoes not "noia a candle" to the telephone. Owing to the strenuous opposition of the Telegraphers' union to the substitution of the telephone for the telegraph, many misapprehensions and misunderstandings have arisen regarding iA " niernoa wnicn is being rap- First and foremost among these misap prehensions Is one reeardine the commer. cial use of the telegraph. It can be stated positively that the efficiency of the tele graph side is not being interfered with in the slightest degree, so far as it affects ine pupiic. ine reverse is true, in fact. for the use of the phone for cnmmmlAl messages hastens their delivery as much as It hastens the work of the train- operating department.

U. ELEVEN. Will Have a Big Social Event Wednesday Night in Lawrence. Lawrence, Kan.. Dec. 1. Perhaps one of the biggest social events in the University of Kansas annals will oc cur Wednesday night in Robinson gymnasium, when a banquet will be given to the "ever-victorious" football team. Plates will be laid for 600 guests. At the banquet the captain for next year will be announced and also "Ks" will be presented to the football play ers. The names of the men who will get the "Ks" have not been made pub lic. Coach Bert Kennedy is receiving showers of congratulations in every mail. Some of the letters are from men who were graduated from the university more than ten years ago. Here is a letter that Kennedy received from Yale: "We. the undersigned university men in Yale, wish to offer our hearti est congratulations to you, and to the Kansas team that has so splendidly earned the title of 'ever-victorious.' We are all for you. David F. M. Far land, Frank J. Klingberg, Scott Ster ling. B. D. Sheridan. Julius Cohn, Tom VanCleave. W. L. Rouch, J. M. Mul ford, L. A. Smith. B. E. Lewis, N. Curt Case, Benjamin F. Stelter." A persistent rumor was being circu lated in university circles today that Coach A. R. Kennedy was going to Pennsylvania next year and be the mentor for the Quakers, but when seen Kennedy said there was absolute ly no truth in the statement. He did say. however, that next spring he was planning to take post-graduate work in dentistry at Pennsylvania and it was his intention to brush up on the for ward pass for next fall. Coach Ken nedy is going to ask the athletic board to engage Arthur St. Leger Mosse as his assistant next year. an annual enumeration was still in force. This and the fact that the blanks sent out to the assessors in all counties contain spaces for the taking of the enumeration caused the county official to make the mistake of think ing an annual enumeration was re quired by law. The case which led to this discovery came about in this man ner: The enumeration books in the hands of the county clerk were found to have been padded and an investiga tion showed that the assessors had been careless in their work. They were ordered by the county attorney to go over a part of their work, but no funds being available by law to pay for their work they refused to do it. The county attorney then brought a mandamus action against them. The importance attached to whether the enumeration was correct or not is that the salaries of county officials are fixed by the number of inhabitants, and the padding of the census kept the salaries higher than they would have been if the figures showed 49 fewer inhabitants. County Attorney Harris consulted Attorney General Jackson in regard to the matter but Jackson could find no authority for an annual census, and to the St. Louis, Kansas City & Colorado, ,between St. Louis and Kan sas City. . Whereas the Rock . Island interests quickly transferred their holdings In the Alton to the Toieao, St. j.ouis ec Western, this transaction is said to have been merely -aiformality and the Rock Island interests are still repre sented in the Alton organization. nne of the easiest methods for settling th Hffairs of the Alton is to conson date it with another company and form a new system. The merger or the mis- snuri Kansas & Texas, the xoieao, si. Louis & Western, the Alton, the Min neapolis & St. Louis and the Iowa Cen tral is looked forward to as a logical re sult. ' EVOLUTION IN RAILROAD NAMES. Them on Pennsylvania Road Serious Controversy. Washington. Dec. 1. A serious con troversy has arisen between the Broth erhood of Locomotive Engineers and the Pennsylvania railroad affecting par ticularly tne lines west of Pittsburg. ine details were presented todav to Chairman Knapp of the interstate com merce commission and Professor Chas F. Neill, commissioner of labor, who constitute the general board of medi ation under the Erdman act. The en glneers desire official recognition to their general board of adjustment in the settlement of any grievances that may arise. The men complain that when they take up grievances with the division superintendents they get no satistaction. So serious has the diffi culty become that a strike vote now is being taken by the engineers of the lines west of Pittsburg. If the vote should be in favor of a strike the situ ation will become acute. With a view to averting the impending trouble the memDers or the general board of ad justment came to Washington to lay their case betore the board of media tion. The conference lasted about two hours. Following this General Manager G. L. Peck of the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg presented to the board the railway side of the contro versy. Until some definite conclusion is reached no announcement will be made by either side. SAFETY APPLIANCES. Growth of Griffith to Manage K. C. Kansas City. Mo.. Dec. 1.

Did it ever occur to you." asked the assistant passenger agent, "how inappropriately many of the railroads of the country are named? Some of them have far outgrown the modest titles with which they started ana otn- ers have never realized the grand ambitions of their infancy. Take the New York, New Haven & Hartford, for instance. New Haven and Hart ford are now mere way stations. Hart ford isn't even on the main line. It would have been logical if the road had taken the name of the New York & New England, one of the smaller concerns which it gobbled up about fifteen years ago; but, of course, mere exactness is trifling in comparison with the inconvenience of such a change. In Boston they call it the Consolidated road, which is proper enough. In New York it is the New Haven line, which is as fitting as it would be to call the Pennsylvania company the Trenton road. New York Central & Hudson River is all right for the parent corporation, but is wretchedly inadequate for the giant syctem which consists of a dozen roads in as many states, the cars of which are marked 'New York Central Lines." The Hudson River end of the line is only a trifling part of the huge mileage, and those two words could well be dropped. the case of the Pennsylvania is similiar. It, too, has thousands of miles of tracks outside the state from which it takes its name. The name of the Delaware. Lacka wanna & Western omits mention of the chief terminus or the road New York. The word 'Erie isn't particularly de scriptive, but the title la lots more convenient than the former cumber some one New York, Lake Erie & Western. The Philadelphia & Reading has far outgrown the limits originally set for it; so have the Louisville & Nashville, the Baltimore & Ohio, the Chesapeake & Ohio, the Chicago & Alton, the Chicago & Rock Island, the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, the Chi cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, the Illi nois Central and a lot of others. Atchi son, Topeka & Santa Fe are all in significant points on a magnificent road that stretches from Chicago to San Francisco. "Some names, however, are an anti climax. The Missouri Pacific never gets a whiff of the salt sea breeze; the St. Louis & San Francisco doesn't come within a thousand miles of living up to its announcement." Philadelphia Ledger. NEW YORK CENTRAL DONATION. Do Roads Have to Maintain Couplings In Good Order? Washington, Dec. 1. The question whether the safety appliance law re quires railroad companies to maintain automatic couplings in good order as well as to equip their cars with them is involved in the case of H. M. Delk vs. the St. Louis & San Francisco com pany in which the supreme court of the United States today authorized the is suance of a writ of certiorari. The case originated in Tennessee, where the trial court granted damages to a railroad employe who was injured. That verdict was, however, reversed by the United States circuit court Qf appeals for the Sixth district. The effect of today's action will be to obtain a complete re view by the supreme court. The inter state commerce commission is taking a deep interest in the case contending that the intent of the law is to re quire the railroads to maintain their couplings in good condition. POSTAL LAW CHANGE. A Revolution in the Present System Is Contemplated. Washington, Dec. 1. The four offices of assistant postmaster general will be abolished, a director of posts with seven assistants provided for and the entire postal service of the United States divided Into fifteen separate districts if the bill for the revision of the postal laws which is being pre pared by the Joint postal investigation commission of congress appointed two years ago, is passed by congress. The commission has been in session for the past week and by holding daily meetings expects to complete the work this week. It is claimed that a director of posts appointed to hold office until re moved for cause and who shall re ceive a high salary will tend to im prove the service through a continuity of policies for the benefit of the pos tal service. By providing for seven assistants the disadvantages due to frequent changes and the appoint ment of inexperienced men to the four offices of assistant postmaster general can, It Is believed be obviated The assistant directos are also to hold office during good behavior. To per fect, the system of management the provision for fifteen superintendents to have direct charge of the fifteen separate postal districts has been de cided on. Another provision of the bill is the assignment of certain duties now performed by the third assistant postmaster general to a commission of appeals. This commission would is sue all fraud orders and pass on the admission to the mails of second class matter. The codification of the pos tal laws is also a part or the work re quired of the commission. Telephone Men Meet. Chicago, Dec. 1.
