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
""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
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.

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.

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.

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

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'

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?

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

cures that lave been credited to Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Tale People. Diseases which

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
