15 THE ADVOCATE AND NEWS. jj RAILROAD EMPLOYES, jj 4 ,I"I"I"I"W"lI"I"!"!"I"l4"l' Address to Bailroad Brotherhoods. The following address was Issued to the railway brotherhoods in December: To tho Officers and Members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, Order of Railway Conductors, Brother hood of Railroad Trainmen, Order of Railway Telegraphers: ""Sirs and Brothers: The year 1897 Is fast drawing to a close and as we review the work accomplished by the five orga nizations representing the train service employes on the railways of the United States, Canada and Mexico, the close affiliation that the organizations have maintained and the harmony that nas prevailed among the grand and the sub ordinate officials and members of the Brotherhoods during the year, we are led to believe that there is to-day a better understanding of our duties to each other, and that we are daily Improving our efficiency as brotherhood men, and our organizations becoming more Influ ential. To one who has a love for the brotherhood that represents his call ing, who has been an active worker in his division or lodge, and whose influ ence has been used to promote har mony and good will among railway men, the present standing and relationship of the railway organizations will be to him a source of pleasure, and will en courage him to continue his labors, that we may perfect our undertakings by a complete organization of the craft in all departments of the train service. During the year marked progress has been made in each urganlzation by in creased membership, additional lodges and divisions. In fact, 1897 will be re corded as a year of progression among the railway fraternities. Yet, we see be fore us a large field in which we can tabor with profit, and with the open ing of the new year your grand officers are desirous of enlisting the support and co-operation of every brother in what ever department of the service he may be engaged, in spreading the gospel of organization among the unorganized, that there may be found none in the train service whose calling 13 repre sented by the organizations but has a knowledge of the benefits of organiza tion and becomes an earnest worker in the cause. To accomplish this we must have the assistance of every brother. We would ask that wherever there is found an engineer without membership in the organization representing the en gine service, that brothers of all sister organizations join with the members of that craft in drilling into his mind the necessity of becoming a brotherhood man. if a conductor i3 found without membership in the organization repre senting his calling, let the brothers of the other organizations join with the conductors In converting him to the faith that he may help to ewell the ranks of the organized. That brother engineers and conductors use their united Influence to bring every worthy brakeman, fireman and telegrapher that Is to-day outside of the brotherhoods representing their respective callings within the fold, that there may be a complete organization. The grand officers are working to gether, each assisting the other, and we ask the membership to join hands and hearts and go out and gather in the many that are without the protecting influence of the brotherhoods. Let every train crew be composed of brotherhood men, and if any one is found without membership let the united influence of his associates be thrown around him to make him a member. Brothers, what we need to-day is a more thorough organization of our sev eral callings. To obtain this we must have the support of every member. Our division and lodge meetings must be attended by every brother who is situ ated o that he can be present, and thus encourage the others. Let every indi vidual realize that he has a duty to per form; that his obligation requires of lilm constant service for the brother hoods and let the purpose of each mem ber be to do what he can for the order and not wait to see what others are do ing. Let us remember that every mem ber admitted adds one more to our sup port, and that with a complete organiz ation of the men we bring to our assist ance in the time of need every employe in the train service. Let all the broth ers strive to exemplify In their every day life the principles of the several organizations; doing by others as you would like others to do by you. Lot us begin the new year with a firm resolu tion to gather Into our several brother hoods the unorganized engineers, fire men, conductors, trainmen, and telegra phers so that the employes In the train service on our railway systems may be come thoroughly organized and equipped for efficient work in the protection of the Interests of the great army of faith ful servants of the public. Fraternally yours, P. M. ARTHUR, Grand Chief Engineer, B. of L. E. F. P. SARGENT, Grand Master, B. of L. F. E. E. CLARK. Grand Chief Conductor, O. of R. C. P. H. MORRISSEY, Grand Master, B. Of R. T.

The annual report of General Watch Inspector Montgomery, of the Santa Fe, will be the most complete report of the kind ever compiled and will give the ratings of every watch being used by the trainmen of the Santa Fe. The report will be ready to be given out to-morrow. A new rail cutter has been received at Newton. The machine Is clamped onto the rail, it being directly over it. There Is a circular saw that is turned by a series of cog wheels. At the same time that the cog wheels are turning the saw, the grip on the rail Is tight ened and the saw has to cut. The Illinois Central road has adopted a mall car device consisting of a small reflector attached to the side of the end of the car. Standing Inside of the car and looking through the door and the reflector, one may see the track for a long distance ahead. The invention en ables the clerks who attend the mall cacher to look ahead to be sure there Is no obstruction on the crane, and to get a clear place on which to make the delivery of the "off" sack. As the result of a recent order Issued by Trainmaster H. A. Tlce several changes have been made In different train crews. Conductor Harry Griffin has been assigned the "plug" run. Con ductor Elmer E. Hay has been pro moted to trains 113, 114 and 7 from the Atchison local. Geo. Speer transferred from local on the main line, 61 and 62, to the Atchison local. Conductor Geo. W. Ross assigned from train 113, 114 and 7 to a through run to Dodge City. Engineer McCowan and Conductor McCambrldge were discharged last week for disobeying orders. The left Topeka January 2 with orders to run to Osage City without stopping, but they dis obeyed the order by going on to Read ing, where the train dispatcher suc ceeded in stopping them. The case was investigated and the result was their dismissal. Engineer John Hand has taken Mr. McCowan's place on engine 733, Mr. Hand being succeeded by En gineer Wm. Jones. Irwin lodge A. 0. U. W. paid the family of A. C. Seller $2,000 last week. DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portions of the ear. There Is only one way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitutional remedies. Deafness Is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eus tachian Tube. When this tube is in flamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is en tirely closed Deafness is the result, and unless the Inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its nor mal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O.

Mothers who have young daughters of school age should watch their health more carefully than their studies. The proper development of their body is of (he first importance. After the confinement of the school room, plenty of out-of-door exercise should be taken. It in better that their children never learn their a, l, c's, than that by learning them they lose their health. Hut all this is self-evident. Everyone admits it everyone knows it, hut everyone does not know how to build them iid when once tliev are broken down. The following method of one mother, it rightly applied, may save your daughter: The young lady was Miss Lucy Karnes, the fifteen-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Karnes, who lives near Hiirnev. Ind. She is A bright young lady, is fond ot Iwoks, although her progress in this Hue has been con siderahly retarded by the considerable amount of sickness she has experienced. She has missed two years of school on account of her bad health, but now she will be able to pur sue her studies, siuoe her health has been restored. Her father was talking of her case to a news paper man one day recently. "My daughter lias had a very serious time of it," said Mr. Karnes, "hut now we are all happy to know that she is getting along all right and is stronger than ever." Asked to relate the story of his daughter, Mr. Barnes continued : "About three years ago, when she was twelve years old.she began to erow weak and nervous. It was. of course, a delicate age for her. She gradually grew weaker and her nerves were at such a tension that the least little noise would irritate her very much, and she was very miserable. Therp was a continual twitch ing in the arms and lower limbs, and we were afraid that she was going to develop St. Vitus' dance. "She kept, getting worse and finally we had to take her from her school and her studies. She was strong and healthy hefore, weighing eighty-five pounds, and in three months she had dwindled to sixty-three pounds. She was thin and pale, and was almost lifeless. We did everything weaconld for her, tnd trlet? nil the doctors who we thought could do her any good, but without result. " '1 here was an old family friend near Milford who had a daughter alllicted the same way. and she was cured by Dr. Williams 1'ink Pills for Pale People. They came here one day to spend Sunday, and they told us about their daugh ter's case. It was very much like LncyV and they advised us to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for her. We had no faith in them, hut were finally persuaded to try the pills. We Lave never Ik-cii sorry for it. They helped her at once and by the time she had taken eight boxes of the medicine she was entirely cured. She took the last dose in April, and has not been bothered since. She is now stronger than ever, weighs ten pounds more than ever before, and her cheeks are full of color. She can now gratify her ambition to study and become an educated woman." The foregoing is but one of many wonderful cures that lave been credited to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Tale People. Diseases which heretofore have been supposed to be incurable, such us locomotor ataxia and paralysis sucenmb to this wonderful medicine as readily as the most trifling ailments. In many cases the re ported cures have been investigated by the leading newspapers and verified in every pos sible manner, and in no case lias the bnt semblance of fraud been discovered. Their fame has spread to the tiir ends of civilization and there is hunllv a drug store in this country or abroad where tliey cannot be found. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a con densed form, nil the elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood and restore shattered nerves. They are an unfailing specific for such diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache, the after effect of la grippe, palpitation of the heart, pale and sallow complexions, all forms of weakness either in male or female.
