EMMONS, The Furniture Man 1 COR. COAL and SECOND wear END VIADUCT Josh Wise tats Teddy and Talks Over Situation MORE CREOSOTE FOR PICKEL ING TIES New Method Will Be Applied at Belen Plant -Where Creosote Comes From. Topeka, Kan., Feb. 18. Edwin O. Faulkner, manager of the tie and timber department of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway com pany, has gone to Galveston, Texas, to be there upon the occasion of the unloading of a creBote boat. Creo sote la delivered by boat three times each year from Germany, and the cargo is dived among several pur chasers. The Santa Fe buys creo sote for the purpose of treating ties. A new method of treatment of ties will also be adopted by the Santa Fe at the new plant to be built at Belen, N. M. Tho new method has been found to be very satisfactory and consists of the treatment of the ties with Cali fornia crude oil. Mr. Faulkner says in the current Issue of the Railway Age: "The statement having been made by timber experts that in order to produce decay two conditional must be present at the same time that is, heat and moisture, from a combina tion of -which spring the organisms producing decay it was considered that by taking thoroughly air-seasoned wood in which condition the cells or pores would be comparatively empty, and then blocking them up with some hard substance, moisture could be kept out of the wood, and decay thereby prevented. "There is one special kind of Cali fornia crude oil of very low gravity, which has about 75 per cent as phaltum base and the rest light oils, the greater part of which vaporize on being heated. In the fall of 1901 tho company took a few New Mexico, Arizona and Texas pine ties, thor oughly seasoned, and treated them with this oil, heated to 180 degrees F., and forced in under a pressure of ISO pounds per square inch, the dif ferent ties taking up from four gal lons minimum to eight gallons maxi mum. In the early spring of 1902 these ties were placed in the experi mental track on the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe, between Cleveland and Pelican, where an ordinary loblolly tie will not last over two years, or an untreated longleaf tie much over three years. "In November las'., when the gen eral officials were making their an nual inspection, they personally ex amined these ties and found that at the end of four years and nine months the oil-treated ties were per fectly sound. One was sawed through the middle and under the rail base it was Just as sound in the interior as though it had been only a month in the track. Since then other ties of the same test have been bored Into and examined, and they all showed up very well. Accord lngly the company has determined on adopting the oil treatment for ties while continuing with creosote for the bridge timber and piling. "This oil at ordinary temperature is like molasses, but when heated it becomes perfectly fluid so that there is no difficulty in getting all the pene tration necessary, and it appears that by applying a light vac I u in at the close the pores are sealed so that after the ties are taken out of the cylinder they can be handled with out any difficulty, and very little of the oil seems to run out. In the case Of the ties in the Tcias trnrlt nuf- flclent oil has come to the outside of the tie to give It what is practically a mm asphalt covering. "In the new timber treating tilan to be built at Belen. X. M., to replace one In Arizona destroyed by Are, th oil process will be used for ties. ThI plant Is to have two cylinders 74 inches in mean diameter inside an 112 feet long." w m m pen.v acknowledges it DREW AGIO LIMIT TO CLOSE The Pennsylvania railroad is con vinced, as the result of experience that it drew the line too close when it fixed 35 years as the age limit at which men may enter the company's employ, n win raise the limit to for ty years for the good of the service. Expediency hag already compelled other railroads that had adopted a similar rule to abandon it in practice, No great business institution can afford to cripple Itself for the sake of an Inflexible theory. The predlca ment the Pennsylvania railroad creat ed for itself was that It could not get enough competent men. Experienced men whom it needed were barred by reason of the thirty-five years rule. In Instituting a pension system for employes first thought wus given to the lima of retirement and length of employment and loo little attention paid to the Immediate requirements of operating the railroad. A better way would poem to be first of all to employ men who nre capable and then adopt the pension system to their various conditions. It is absurd to say that a man at thirty-five or at forty would not be justly entitled to a pension of a certain size until thirty years later. His value to an em ployer, whether he is young or middle-aged, depends upon what he can do, not upon an abstract theory as to when the man becomes pensionable. Tev York World. WESTERN MANAGERS APPROVE ALL-STEEL- PULLMAN CARS. Chicago, 111., Feb. 18. A large number of the western railroad presi dents and managers were taken to Pullman the other day and shown the first all-teel sleeping car. The car is almost as light as the ordinary car, and everything in it is of steel except the upholstery. The presi dents expressed themselves as greatly pleased with the construction of the car, and it is understood If tests turn out as the Pullman officials expect they will, it will be the model for all future sleeping cars. The engineers who are locating a bride site for the Arizona, California & Santa Fe cut-oft across the Colo rado river at Parker, have made a curious discovery. At a depth of 80 feet the engineers struck what they believed to be bed rock. After this rock had been pierced SO feet with a diamond drill, the engineers were amazed to break through into a soft stratum in which was a large flow of water. The situation is complicated by this strange phenomenon, as it is necessary to have an absolutely solid foundation for the piers of the heavy bridge. w m m Covers will be laid for 100 guests at the Alvarado hotel this evening where a banquet will be had by the railroad men of Albuquerque for I. L. Hicks, master mechanic of the Santa Fe shops here, who, as it has been previously announced, haa been trans ferred to San Bernardino, Cal. Mr. Hicks arrived here from San Bernard ino last night. He will make arrange ments for moving his family nnd household effects to San Bernardino immediately. Employes of the shops and yards will receive their January pay checks today (Saturday). Checks will be cashed at the Railroad Y. M. C. A. as usual. Wives of the em ployes can have their husbands' checks cashed after being properly endorsed. More than 700 checks were cashed at the Railroad Y. M. C. A. last month. Topeka Capital. a a Directors of the Union Pacific Rail road company have declared the reg ular semi-annual dividends of 5 per cent on the common stock and 2 per cent on the preferred stock. It was stated that of the dividend on the common stock 3 per cent was de clared on the earnings and 2 per cent on the income from investments. m m m W. W. Pitts, the machinist, return ed last night from a week's pleasure trip to Portales and Lubbock, says the Roswell Record. He brought home with him a lobo wolf skin and tells the story that it fell under his unerring aim. George Montgomery, traveling ac countant for the Santa Fe, left yes terday for San Diego, but will return for the ball game on the 22d of this month, at which he is to preside as chief rooter for the depot "bunch," says the San Bernardino Sun. The directors of the Colorado & Southern railroad declared an initial dividend of 2 per cent on second pre ferred stock. They also declared a regular semi-annual dividend of 2 per cent on first preferred stock. The Santa Fe railroad is advertis ing liberally in Kansas. Apparently a discrimination is being shown against the newspapers of the terri tories. m m Roy Ward, of Wellington, Kan , was expected to arrive in Las Vegas today to take a position in the super intendent's office as assistant main tenance clerk. Engine 52. recently turned out of the shops at Topeka, has been Bent to the middle division for service.

When a man c'n take a railroad trip over 50 miles long an arrive at th' end uv it safe an' sound It's something worth men tionln". I wish you'd telephone t' my wife th't I got here O. K. She's a great hand t' worry. Ev'ry time I've made a trip away frum home in th last 35 years my wife's had a pre sentment th't something wuz goln' t' happen f me er f th' train I wuz on.

On t ill n kin" It over, I guess it'll be better t' send this letter by special telegraph dispatch Instead uv by mall, sa I c'n get word t' Mrs. Wise quick er. Ev'rybody I've met so far in Wash ington seems glad t' see me. They treated me uz cordial uz though I'd been a United States Benator from a gold mlnin' state. Mebby my plug hat done it, mebby my whiskers. I dunno which, but it wuz one o' th' two. I've always noticed thut a man with either on c'n git a welcome when th' dogs would be put on a barefaced man who didn't have th' insignia uv dignity, statesmanship an' hack-driv-in' on his head. Be that as it may, nowhere did I receive a more cordial welcome th'n when I called at Presi dent Theodore Roosevelt's office. Theodore himself coma t' th' door when I rung th' bell an' let me in. "Dee-lighted!" says he. "Come right in." In I come an we talked over a few ordinary things, like th' poor street car service an' th' trouble In gittln' help in th' kitchen, when I says: "Mr. President, I come down here t' investigate th' situation an' th' pres ent crisis." "Glad t' hear It, Joshua." says he, Jumpln' up, all excited. "Sorry it's so sloppy we can't have a game o' tennis an' talk it over calmy. Come up f th' gymnasium an' put on th' gloves fer a few rounds." t' handle these public questions without gloves. i never tried f break a stone with a sponge cake er t' dig a well with a nut pick." ' "That's right," says he. "We need honest investigation. T' git it we must have honest investigators. An honest investigator is t' corrupt cop perations whut th' policeman's whis tle is f th' burglar.' "They both lay low till th' police man passes," says I. "Yes," says he, "but investigation is th' current uv electricity leadln' t th' arc lamp where th' two Is hldln. Press th' button uv publicity an' th" light s turned on an' th' burglar flees. Now how about th' spellln' question? ' I got a little excited an' jumped up. "I believe In ev ryDody spellln' t' suit himself!" I yelled. "Uv course," says th' president' wavln' his hands. "Why sh'd you an' me spell a certain -way jest because our great-great-gran' fathers did? Statistics show th' ev'rage man uv 60 spends 20 years uv his life Bleepin' an' puttin' on his clothes.

Why sh'd we burn up more time puttin' 'u's' an 'gh's' In words an' lookln' through th' die tlonary t' see how some feller dead an' gone spelt words?" "Spellln' Is a habit," says I. ''An' gen'rally bad one," says he, pound In' his right hand with his left "Now we've settled th' spellln' ques tion, let's turn t' th' railroads." "First," says I, "let's take up th' Brownsville situation." "Them stories uv Brownsville has been eolered," !ays he, all excited again. "That's what Foraker says," I hint td. "Whut we demand is. a niiui . deal," says th' president, jumpln about two feet. "Th' nacheral percentage is strong enough against us," says I. "It is," says he. "Why this short age in railroad cars? Geo. Gould says it's because people are usln' em I claim th't If ev'ry shipper th't wunts cars wuz usln' 'em there wouldn't be no shortage. Ain't that a simple proposition?" "Yes," says I, "an If nobody want ed cars there'd be no shortage. "Could anything be plainer? Now there's th' situation an" th' crisis In nutshell." Tomorow I'll call on Vice President Fairbanks.

It cures all skin itching. It cures skin eruptions. It heals cuts, bruises, scratches and abrasions without leaving a scar. It cures permanently. Albuquerque testimony proves it. A. M. Whltcomb, living at 325 North Eighth street, Albuquerque, N. M., says: "I have nothing to retract from the recommendation I gave for Doan's Ointment some five years ago. What I then stated was to the effect thnt this preparation tiad cured me of a breaking out, which, If not eczema, , closely resembled this tro.uble and was confined to a spot about the size of a silver dollar Just below one of my knees. Off and on for ten years It had annoyed me, always being worse when I was in bed or if I would sit near a fire. I consulted two of our leading physicians but what they gave me proved of no more avail than all the different kinds of salves and ointments that I tried. I had no faith in Doan's Ointment, expecting that it would act slmllarily to the other remedies I had used, but I was surprised to find that the first appli cation stopped the itching and a short continuation of its use healed the place affected. The fact that I can say after this long Interval that there has been no return of the trouble is pretty good reason for my willingness to confirm my original statement. At the time of my using Doan's Oint ment one of my grandchildren had salt rheum on his arm and the irri tation was so great that it caused him to scratch continually. Despite the fact that it had resisted all treatment, Doan's Ointment affected a cure and one which has been permanent. I can recommend this preparation at all times as one that can be relied up on to act as represented." For sale by all dealers. Price 60 cents. Foster-MUburn Co., Buffalo, N.
