Increased
Train Service
Effective May 23, 1909, the Northern PcTcific
Railway augumented its passenger train ser
vice by the establishment of new trains, not
alone between eastern and western termin
als, but locally on main lines and branches
in the several states which it serves.
It has thus placed in closer touch than ever
the different sections, the various cities and
towns, the thriving communities, which for
twenty-six years the Northern Pacific has
aided and fostered in growth and progress.
This increased efficiency of service means
much to the territory tributary to the
Northern Pacific Railway.
Additional lines projected or actually un
der construction will still further increase
the scope of Northern Pacific co-operation in
the development of the Northwest in the
course of the next year or two.
The present through service comprises
Four Daily Electric-lighted
Transcontinental Trains
affording through equipment without change between
Chicago, St Paul, Minneapolis, St. Louis Kansas City
and Spokane, Portland, Tac.ma, Seattle, Puget Sound,
Omaha, Billings, Butte, Helena and Missoula.
Direct connections from and to Duluth and Superior.
Ask for new time tables showing the increased service in detail.

Mark Twain in Australia, wblch, ha
said, determined him never again to
judge by appearances. He had Just
landed at an Australian port, and. to
his chagrin, there was no porter in
sight to carry his luggage. Seeing a
rough looking, badly dressed old fel
low leaning idly against a post with
his hands in his pockets, tho author
beckoned to him and said:
"See here, if you'll carry theeo bags
up to the hotel I'll give you half

The man scowled darkly, and, tab

A SCIENTIST'S
STARTLING PROOF,
By OSCAR COX.
{Copyright, 1909, by American Preao Asso
ciation. J
The great scientific Investigator and
the great financier talked together.
"What ie death, doctor?" asked the
latter.
"I don't know. Formerly we con
sidered death the separation of animal
and spiritual life, occurring when the
heart ceased to beat. Now we know
that tho body lives on after that
period. There are two causes of bodily
death or corruption—viz. microbes and
self digestion. Microbes cannot act If
not i>ermitted to enter, and self diges
tion cannot take place except through
the agency of water. Exclude the mi
crobes, exhaust the water, and, in my
opinion, the body may lie kept alive In
definitely. in that case spiritual death
may be eliminated."
A year after this announcement Jon
athan Starkweather, the financier, feel
ing ill, sent for Dr. Evan Carroll, the
man who made it. But before the
doctor's arrival the patient had died ot
heart failure. Carroll produced an or
der signed by Starkweather twelve
months before for the body. Arthm
Starkweather, the deceased's oldest
son. knew of the order, respected it
and the body was transferred to Dr
Carroll's laboratory.
Arthur Starkweather inherited hia
father's fortune, but by the will, iu
case of his death without issue, it
was to go to Dr Carroll In trust to
fendow an institute for scientific re
search. Two years after getting pos
session of tho property Arthur Stark
weather died a bachelor. Dr. Carroll
at once put iu a claim for tho estate ou
behalf of his institute.

tab
Innumerable Starkweathers sprang
up to contest tho will.
A meeting was called, a committee
appointed and counsel employed.
A month later counsel informed the
committee that there was no doubt of
their ability to break the will, owing to
a flaw in the deed of trust. The trus
tees' attorneys were so far convinced
of this that they made an offer to
compromise. The offer was submitted
to a meeting of the heirs-at-law and
unanimously declined.
Dr. Carroil, who was present at tho
meeting, arose and stated that there
was some doubt about Jonathan Stark
weather being dead and he might be
capable of making another will. All
were surprised at what was consid
ered an absurd bluff on the part of a
mau who stood at thu head of scien
tific research in America. Shouts of
"Proof!" "Produce him!" "Show your
hand!" were heard from every quar
ter. The doctor left the meeting with
out reply, hut in a few days every
member of the heirs' committee was
invited by him to present himself at a
certain hot»r of a certain day at his
laboratory.
Upon arrival they were ushered into
a dimly lighted unfurnished room, iu
the center of which was a gigantic
test tube similar to those, much small
er, commonly used by experimenters.
In the tube was what resembled a
skeleton, though it was rather like a
strip of dried cartilage. The skull,
covered with shriveled flesh, skin and
hair, was the only feature that sug
gested a human being.
The tube was hermetically sealed and
occupied a space twelve feet square
by seven feet high, Inclosed in plate
glass. A steam pipe appeared coming
up through the floor. Dr. Carroll am 1 .
Several assistants in sterilized gowns
entered the liiclosure. The tempera
ture was noted and s jet of steam
turned on. Then the sealed end of
the tube was opened, and after a time
the cartilaginous figure began to as
sume the appearance of a starved hu
man being. Soon after Dr. Carroll
removed It from the tube and placed
It in a cushioned easy chair.
The figure finally opened its eyes, but
immediately closed them. Then, open
ing them again, it fixed them on the
committee. There was something so un
canny in the stare of the eorpseliko
body that several of the committee,
unable to stand it. left the room.
At this point Dr. Carroll asked the
patient how he felt. He opened his
lips to speak, but the only sound that
»me was such as Is produced by a
talking doll. It was very distressing,
and more of the committee want out.
Dr. Carroll opened the door of the
glass inclosure and asked the eomruit
toe if they recognized Jonathan Stark
weather. Several committeeman ad
mitted that they did. but didn't wish
to see any more of him. whereupon
the doctor took from his pocket a will,
properly drawn, and handed it to
Starkweather with a stylographie pen
Starkweather signed it, and it was wit
nessed by the assistants.
Such is the story whispered among
the younger experimenters at tho
Starkweather Institute with referonce
to the withdrawal of tho suit to break
the Starkweather will on payment of
$100 ,000 to the heirs of 11$* $1,000,000
left for the Institution. There is one
rlcment of the story, however, that
vasts a doubt upon its truth. Nothing

and dry humor.
Never having taken a sea trip, Mr.
Cobb one day conceived the idea of
making a voyage to New York. Ac

Small schooner. Tho first day out a
storm was encountered and Mr. Cobb
became violently sick, but after sev

strength to look out upon the troubled
waters. .

little ship ni» the trough of the Ren It
