DECREASE SPEED OF TRAINS Riilro.ids Seem to Be In Agreement to Li;ik Running Time to Seventy Miles an Hour. railroad's rest riot Ion of all trains to seventy r indicates a tendeno te old speed 'deal oi the bpee miles an away fro American slgnlflcap. adopud i luges, steel equip thing but toughci in better position with safety than B "llmlteds" and uted. to rains )f tl Instl Most speed records on American rail roads, in fact, were made under less secure operating conditions than now exist. A Lehigh Valley train in 1897 covered forty miles at the rate of eighty miles an hour, a Burlington train in 1902 ran fifteen miles at a ninety-eighi mile gait and a train on the Plant system in 1901 accomplished the remaj-sable feat of running five miles at the rate of 120 miles an hour. As far kuk as 1S4R the Great West ern of England ran a train fifty-three miles n a speed of sixty-eight miles an hour. Seventy miles an hour is the maxi mum speed allowed on French rail loads. It la more a theory than a condition as respects trains on regu lar schedule in any country. The fastest German train, running between Berlin and Hamburg, maintains a speed of only fifty-five miles an hour, and English schedules are but little faster. Does a public demand exist for eighteen hour and othor high spi ed trains? Railway managers represent that it does, and a recent wreck was ascribed by an lll'nois jury to this In direct cause. But the companies are under no compulsion to run them, they are uneconomical, and most have been Instituted by way of rivalry and to advertise the roads more than to meet any real need of the traveling public. A policy of speed reduction would accord with the policy of retrench ment with which railroad executives are confronted in other things. Sandy's Name Is "Dinls." Within a year or I wo Chile's gov eminent rallrAadB will no longer offel lucrative places to Scotch engineers Practically all the engineers running the government locomotives come from North Britain under five yeai contracts, and the cost to the t'hilear exchequer is about one-third more than would be the employment of Da tive-bom engineers. Hitherto how ever, die canny Scots have easilj proved their superiority; a fact whictl is generally admitted. - To bring the Chilean youth up to a pitch of proficiency so that they will be able to take the places of the highly-paid Scots, a government school ia being opened here under a Scotch Instructor. At first it was urged that an American should be engaged, bin to placate the Scots still under con tract It was decided that a Glasgow applicant should get tho place. There are about 300 engineers and 000 ma chinists employed on the government roadu of Chile. Passing of a Veteran Engineer. A veteran railroad engineer, John W. Wade, who recently died at AMan a at the age of eighty-eight, had ad ventures beyond most of his calling, tn 1851. when employed In the shops if the Baldwin locomotive works in Philadelphia, he was Intrusted with i-c responsibility of carrying to Georgia two of the first locomotives put into service on the railroads of that state. Mr. Wade decided to lo cate in Atlanta. He had miinv ing experiences In running trains dur ing the Civil war. He waa often called to pilot troop trains to all portions of the south, and for weeks at a time his family would Dot know where he was. At one time, finding all bridges burned and unable to proceed with his trnlr;, he attempted another route only to find himself hemmed in by the enemy, and a stiff light ensued.

C "I suffered with womanly trouble," writes Mrs. J. 8. Kendrlck, in a letter from this place, "and at times, I could not bear to stand on ray feet. The doctor said I would never be any better, and that I would have to have an operation, or I would have a cancer. I went to the hospital, and they oper ated on me, but I got no better. They said medicines would do me no good, and I thought I would have to die. At last I tried Cardui, and began to Improve, so I continued using it. Now, I am well, and can do my own work.
