life. Ilioro are none that so touches the

heart to sink like the sight of the poor

most repelling rebuff everywhere he goes,
The great success of these sales are most
encouraging. W e know that many could

Delicately formed and gently reared, women will find,
in all the seasons of their lives, as maidens,wives, or moth
ers, that the one simple, wholesome remedy which acts
gently and pleasantly and naturally, and which may be
used with truly beneficial effects, under any conditions,
when the system needs a laxative, isSyrup of Figs. It
is well known to be a simple combination of the laxative
and carminative principles of plants with pleasant, aro
matic liquids, which are agreeable and refreshing to the
taste and acceptable to the system when its gentle
Cleansing is desired.
Many of the ills from which women suffer are of a tran
sient nature and do not come from any organic trouble
and it is pleasant to know that they yield so promptly to
the beneficial effects of Syrup of Figs, but when anything
more than a laxative is needed it is best to consult the
family physician and to avoid the old-time cathartics and
loudly advertised nostrums of the present day. When
one needs only to remove the strain, the torpor, the con
gestion, or similar ills, which attend upon a constipated
condition of the system, use the true and gentle remedy
Syrup of Figsand enjoy freedom from the depression,
the aches and pains, colds and headaches, which are due
to inactivity of the bowels.
Only those who buy the genuine Syrup of Figs can hope
to get its beneficial effects and as a guarantee of the ex
cellence of the remedy the full name of-the company
California Fig Syrup Co.^is printed on the front of every
package and without it any preparation offered as Syrup'
of Figs is fraudulent and should be declined. To those,,
who know the quality of this excellent laxative, the
offer of any substitute, when Syrup of Figs is called
for, is always resented by a transfer of patronage to.

Wm. H. Truesdale Doesn't See How
Merger Decision Can Affect
Coal Roads.
Decision Is Said Also Not to Preju
dice the Oregon Short Line
New York, April 16.In view of the
Northern Securities decision some uncer
tainty has been expressed in regard to
the Oregon Short Line 4 per cent bonds.
It is said, however, that the decision does
not. predudice the bonds. President W. H.
Truesdale of the Lackawanna Railroad
company said apropos of certain reports
affecting the coal carrying railroads and
coal companies: "I fail to see how the
Northern Securities decision affects the
status of the big coal roads. They are
not controlled by any holding company,
but are as distinctly separate as they
can be. The Temple Iron company does
not control any coal road. It administers
the affairs of certain coal and iron prop
Wisconsin Central's Action In Chicago
Makes Other Lines Squirm.
Western railway executives are consid
ering in Chicago to-day the absorption of
switching charges. After one system se
cured a ruling that it was unlawful to
absorb switching charges or pay drayage
unless the tariff filed with the commission
stated that this would be done, the Wis
consin Central formally gave notice that
it would pay switching or drayage charges
to or from its tracks for industries located
on other tracks.
When this action was known, tariff of
ficials of other roads terminating' at Chi
cago held a meeting and brohght all pos
sible pressure to bear on the. Wisconsin
Central to change its policy. It steadfastly
refused to do so, and then the other roads
agreed to ignore its payment of switch
ing charges and adhere to their policy of
making shippers pay these charges in ad
dition to the regular freight rates.
The result has been that the Wisconsin
Central has gained a lot of business at
the expense of other roads. Some of them
notified the chairman of the Western
Freight association that unless the Wis
consin Central quit paying switching and
drayage charges they would have to fol
low the AVisconsin Central. Hence the
call for a special meeting of the execu
tive officers.
To Be Built by Gould Interests Across
Gould Interests, represented in the Mis
souri Pacific, plan the building of three
trunk lines across Nebraska. The start
ing point will be Virginia, Neb., a town
of 150 inhabitants, one of the present ter
minals of the Missouri Pacific in Nebras
ka. A line from Virginia to Beatrice is
under way. The road is the Kansas City
Beatrice & Northwestern. Beatrice is
the first junction point of the new trunk
lines. One line will be built due west to
Denver. The northwest branches will be
built from Beatrice. A junction is to be
made at a new town near Plato, in. Sa
lina county. From a new town, the site
of which has not been selected, one branch
will, go north into the northern Nebraska
and Dakota wheat fields. The other
branch will go northwest either thru
Grand Island or Prosser. Neb. The Denver
branch will be straight west thru the
larger towns of southern Nebraska.

Milwaukee Road Now in Shape to Take
Eastern Shipments.
The Milwaukee road's embargo against
lake shipments in force several weeks
has been raised and to-day flour will be
received. The lake warehouses of the
company have been cleared at Milwaukee
and Chicago and the road is again in po
sition to receive flour cargoes.
St. Paul's Carload Business.
The St. Paul Chamber of Commerce
has completed the following comparative
statistics of carload business done for
March: Receipts for March, 22,018,
against 14,752 for March, 1902, a gain of
7,266 the shipments for the same month
of 1903 were 12,031 carloads, against 11,331
for the same month of the previous year,
an increase of 700 cars.
Carloads received at the Minnesota
Transfer for March, 1903, were 17,248,
against 15,753 for the same month of
1902, a gain for the year of 1,495 cars the
shipments for the same month were 17,-
181 cars, against 15,181 for the same
month last year, a gain for the year of
2,000 cars.
Carloads received by the St. Paul Union
stock yards for March, 1903, were 1,047,
and the total shipments were 1,331.
Reduced Tariffs Filed.
Several railroads have been filing re
duced tariffs with the interstate commerce
commission, and considerable anxiety is
manifested by officials over the prospect of
repetition of conditions which prevailed
before Jan. 1 when over 1,100 tariffs giv
ing reduced rates on various articles of
freight were on file. Most of the tariffs
lately filed give reduced rates on export
grain and flour from Chicago to Liverpool
by way of the Illinois Central and New
Orleans. The Elkins law provides that
the inland rates must be quoted, and the
New York roads are doing so on exports
by way of that city, but the Illinois Cen
tral ignores,the law on exports via New
Orleans and quotes the thru rates only.
Passenger Men Go West.
C. S. Fee, general passenger agent of
the Northern Pacific, will leave to-night
for Portland, Oregon, to attend the meet
ing of the Transcontinental Passenger as
sociation. Mr. Fee will have as guests
in his private car. G. T. Nicholson, pas
senger traffic manager of the Santa Fe
A. H. Hanson, general passenger agent of
the Illinois Central, and his assistant,
Samuel Hatch J. P. Elmer, general pas
senger agent of the Great Western F. I.

Trans-Central American.
A new railroad which is expected to di
vert to American ports a large share of
Central American exports is to be built
across Central America from the Pacific to
the Atlantic with one terminus at Puerto
Barrios. The freight will be carried by
way of the gulf to Pensacola or New Or
leans. This route will reduce the time
from two months to two weeks. One
hundred and forty miles are completed.
James McNaught, former counsel of the
Northern Pacific, is president of the syn
dicate. -V-. . -r,,.
A Question of Trading.
The Transcontinental Passenger asso
ciation at Portland, Oregon, next week
will take up the question of regulating
the method of handling transportation
traded by railroad companies to certain
concerns in payment of services or arti
cles furnished. It is alleged that one
manufacturing concern has obtained sev
eral passes or tickets entitling its repre
sentatives to travel on the railroads, the
permits being given in payment for type
writers sold to the companies. But the
tickets turn up afterward in the hands of
other persons and it is charged that they
have been sold by the original holders at
less than the regular rates.
Transportation of the Dead.
Chicago, April 16.Hereafter mo one
need fear, should he die in a strange coun
try of a contagious disease that the rail
roads will refuse to transport his remains
to the land of his birth. At a conference
held here last night between representa
tives of the state health boards of the
National Funeral association and of gen
eral baggage agents, it was decided that
present restrictions with regard to the
transportation of dead bodies should be
less rigidly observed. The improvement
in the methods of preparing bodies for
burial and the prevailing scientific use
of disinfectants are the cause of the
Winnipeg-Selkirk Trolley.
