Traction com pany officials in this city are said to be perturbed over the possibility that a Strap Hangers' league will be organized here. The strap hangers movement had its inception In Chicago recently, and Is coming eastward, taking In all the im portant cities on the way. It has now reached Pittsburg. Less than a week old, the league there has a membership of over 500, and before the end of th' month iris estimated that 10,000 will be enrolled. Philadelphia has a far greater list of eliglbles. All the conditions are here to make a Strap Hangers' organization an immediate success. The newest Strap Hangers' league, that at Pittsburg, has established regu lar headquarters In the Schmidt build ing, and expects to apply for a charter. The hosts of men and women who are compelled to stand up in the street cars daily, for lack of seats, are all qualified to join. Ten cents is the nominal membership fee that is charged, and every enrolled Strap Hanger gets a button, bearing the name cf the organization. These buttons are worn conspicuously, and as they multiply during the rush hours on the traction lines the company officials begin to realize that seats for all ave wanted.' In Chicago the trolley managers at first laughed at the strange organiza tion, but' they were soon forced to re cognize the demonstration as same thing serious, and to take action to ward the desired reform.

Tom Sharkey beat Duncan McMillan in a wrestling match, catch-as-catch-can at the New London Opera house tonight. o HEAVILY INVOLVED. A Failure Impending. Improper feeding brings on disease. The use of coffee for instance is almost certain to cause organic ills. The whole system of health becomes Involv ed and the physical failure known as collapse Is always Impending. No fi nancial trouble can cause half the suf fering that follows disease and most disease comes from what we eat and drink. It is no guess work but solid, scien tific fact that coffee hurts about 9 of every 10 that drink it. It attacks the vital organs directly, and Indirectly Its 111 results are frequently seen in the re- motest corners of the body. All the while serious organic diseases may be growing that will be hard to cure and coffee drinker is subject to such suffer ing as headaches, biliousness, flatu lence. Insomnia, nervousness and a hundred and one other ills. "Once upon a time as they say In fairy tales, when I was controlled by the coffee fiend," writes a lady of St. John, Canada, "life was a weary bur den to me on account of the wretched headaches, utter weariness of both mind a nd body and general biliousness, all due as 1 afterwards found out to the us of coffee. Acting upon on old friend's advice I quit coffee and drank Postum and presto, in a week I was transformed into different being. "In a month I was gifted with bound ing energy in place of my former lassi tude and a general uprising of my for merly dormant ambitions was plainly evident. I benefited so greatly that I constituted myself a missionary among! my friends to spread the truth about Postum and I can tell you of many of my friends who have used it with won derful good results."
