"holders of railway securities in the
L'nited States nearly equal the ntnnber of
employes. The people own the roads."
This deduction was made yesterday by
Slason Thompson fromn figures collected
frotm railway officials. The question was
suggested by the recent statentent of Pres
idlent Stuyvesant Fish that the stock of the
Illinois Central is held by 8,647 stockhold
ers, of whom an overwhelming majority
own less than too shares apiece.
T Thirty-nitne of the principal railway coin
panics of the country representing o.7,64o
miles out of the 202o,471 of single track
mileage in the United States responded
to Mr. Thotmpson's letter of inquiry. These
gave the total number of stockholders on
their hooks as 19t,387. This is nearly
equal to two stockholders to every mile of
railway. The ratio on the Illinois Central,
as given by Mr. Fish, is a little more than
a to 1.
Applying a to I as tne ratio approxi
mated in the total, tile figures would show
400,o000 stockholders in round numbers for
the aoo,ooo miles of railway in the United
States as owning the $6,o24.aot,295 of
capital stock reported on June 3o, 19oa.
Assuming that the $6,iooo,981,669 founded
debt is as widely distributed among bond
holders, the railway ownership would ap
pear to be in approximately 8oo,o0o hands.
These figures, approaching the total of rail
way employes (t,189,315), do not repre
sent the total of those interested in rail
way ownership. One official wrote:
"These figures are for registered stock,
but as many of these are bankers and
brokers, holding stock in their name for
clients, the actual numiber of stockhold
ers will be greater."
The controller of one of the largest sys
telms wrote:
"It is probable that the number of actual
stockholders is twice as great as tile nuot
her of registered stockholders."
"There also is the holding of railway
stock by insurance companies, savings
hbanks and trust companies, extending
their ownership among thousands," de
clared .\lr. Thomlpson. "The accounting
ofllcial of one road stated that 19.86 per
cent of its share was so held. I.ittle stock
ill non-dividend paying roads is held by
such institutions, but more than 55 per
cent of the railway stock in the United
St;ates is now dividentd paying.
"In one way or another the people of
the IUnited States own the railways of the
It'nited States, and somlething like .,ooo.ooo
persons, through wages, interest antd divi
denids, divide two thirds of their gross
earnings of $m,726,38o,267 (1gou-'oa)

Officers who investigated declared on the
witness stand that they found the child
scratching in the earth with her foot or
hand, rolling in the dust, crowing and imi
tating the fowls in every way. She finally
strutted around the yard half a dozen
times, each time crawling under a low
bush that was in the yard. Then she
"sparred up" to a rooster, just as another
rooster would have done.
A nurse in the hospital where the child
was taken said that two or three days
after she was admitted she would not
speak, but would crow and cackle and
strut around the room like a bantam.,
\\hen put to bed she would perch herself
on the end of the cot and wanted to roost
there.-Sydney (Australia) Cor, Milwau

More suffering and deaths result from af

"Since early childhood I had suffered
agonies from hereditary kidney and bladder
disease. My father had spent a small for.

for treatment, but the medicines they
poured Into my system made me worse instead of better. I was very delicate, and as I grew
older the pain became so terrible that I could hardly stand up.
"()One dlay, while filling the teeth of a business man in my office, I was taken suddenly
with such awful pIains across the small of my back, that I had to give up entirely. Then he

"'The first bottle proved that he was right, and by the time I had finished the thiril I

Wood imitation Silk.
Wood pulp, which is now used to such
a wonderful extent for paper making, is,
according to report, being employed at a
factory in North Germany for making ar
tificial silk. The plant is turning out
about So pounds of skein silk per day, but
the output is soon to be increased to a,ooo
pounds. The material is said to be soft in
texture and of a cream-white color, each
thread being made up of t8 single strands,
which by themselves are so fine as to be
almost invisible to the naked eye. Whetn
woven, this wood-silk is said to have all
the appearance of genuine silk, although
it is not so strong as the real product of
'.he silkworm. Little is known as to the
details of manufacture, but it is believed
that the pulp undergoes a certain chenmical
treatment, and Is then forced by. hydraulio
pressure through very fine orifices or
tubes, Equally reticent are its promoters
