Not an Ideal Resort.
Unreliable!” 1 heard the woman : n gray velvet say. “Unreliable sn i the name for what she is. She’s as un trustworthy as the advertisement of a winter resort/’ That makes me think of a note I had the other day from a semi-invalid who is ughting a brave fight for health down at Ocean Springs, in Mississippi says a writer in the Washington Post! hrom time to time she has been send ing me wild white violets packed tn gray moss. She promised to send me some for the birthday of a dear friend which fell on a day of this week. The violets didn't come. Instead there was a letter and it said: 1 am ever so sorry not to be able to send the promised violets, but when 1 went down to the bayou to look for them this morning they were covered with snow. For goodness’ sake, have my fur coat sent down to me.” “Your letters to me,” said his affianced bride one day, “are so cold and forma!.” “Surely, my dear," exclaimed the literary celebrity, stung by her re proach, “when they are ’ published, after my death, they will be found to be models of composition, breathing the most exalted sentiments and in absolutely correct Eng lish.” Better Than “Christian Scienoe." Jetmore, Kans., July Ist.—Mrs. Anna Jones Freeman, daughter of Mr. G. G. Jones of Burdett, ami one of the most popular ladies in Hodgeman County has been a martyr to headache for years. It has made her life a continual misery to her. She suffered pains in the small of the back, and had every symptom of Kidney and Urinary Trouble. To-day she is well as any lady in the atate. This remarkable change was due en tirely to a remedy recently introduced here. It is called Dodd's Kidney Pills, and many people claim it to be an in fallible cure for Kidney Diseases, Rheumatism and Heart Trouble. Mrs. Freeman heard of Dodd's Kid ney Pills, and almost with the first dose, she grew better. In a week, her head aches and other pains had gone, and she had left behind her all her ill ness and days of misery. A medicine that can do for any one what Dodd’s Kidney Pills have done for this lady is very soon to be univer sally used, and already the demand for these pills has increased wonderfully in Pawnee and Hodgeman Counties, where the particulars of Mrs. Free man’s case and its cure are known. “Oh, I heard that story when I was a child,” sneered Miss Antike. “No doubt. I confess it's very old.” Do oor Feet Acte anrl Hum? Shake into your shoes, Allpn’s Foot- Ease, a powder for the feel. It makes tight or New Shot's feel Easy. Cures Corns, Bunions, Swollen.

Why These Missives Were Always Written on Tissue Paper. "In looking over some old papers the other day,” said a wholesale mer chant, “I ran across a very singular document. It was a letter of instruc tion sent 40 years ago by one of my uncles, then in St. Louis, to his agent in San Francisco. It i elated to the disposal of a lot of goods which had been shipped by way of the Horn, and, although it contained over 15,000 words and a copy of a good sized in voice, it was written on j .-t two sheets of paper. The paper itself was a sort of tough, opaque tissue, very thin and light, and when folded the letter slipped easily Into an envelope about thrtee inches wide. "Why it was got up iu such a pe culiar style was explained by the stamp in the corner, which was one of the old ‘pony express’ series of Wells, Fargo & Cos. and was embel lished with a picture of a man on horseback, spurring at a dead gallop across the plains. 1 know of course that the Pacific mail of the period was caried by relay express riders, but 1 never before realized what great pains were taken to reduce the weight to the lowest possible point. I am told that the letters were stored in little flat pouches under the flaps of the saddle and that they were always writ ten on a specially prepared tissue. “The one I have described must have occupied an expert clerk several days, for the penmanship, while microscopic, is beautifully executed and as clear and as legible as print. The stamp was of the denomination of 50 cents, and taken altogether it would be hard to find a more striking re minder of the astonishing progress than has been made in this country in a trifle over one generation. Every thing about the little brown letter — its lightness, its comp-ctness and the edst of its carriage- poke of dan gers, difficulties and rude, primitive conditions. It is difficult to realize that the route it traveled is now' the great highway of thousands of rush ing trains bearing the transcontinen tal commerce of the nation.” GERMANY’S NEW OIL ENGINE. It Operates Without the Use of Boil ers, Furnaces or Chimneys. Great things are expected of the Diesel engine, the latest thing in Ger man engineering, the first working of which in England was at Guide bridge, near Manchester, recently. Economy in fuel and space Is the chief merit of the Diesel, commend ing it to makers of automobiles and small marine craft as an engine with a future. Its claim to originality lies in the fact that it works with crude oil, without smell or dirt, perfectly consuming all the products of com bustion. Unlike other oil engines, it requires m> ignition point. Com press c . r..r iroin cylinders starts the Diesel, l. and air are then admitted to the cylinder, when the compres sion of the air by the return stroke so raises the tempcratui e mm the oil flashes and the forward stroke is de livered. The exhaust is perfectly clean and free from odor. Thus the claim made for the Diesel is that no boilers, fur naces or chimneys are required. Great economy of space and fuel is effected, as it can be used with any kind of liquid fuel or furnace gas—the waste product of blast furnaces. Hopes are entertained that the Diesel will be used on a very large scale, those who are introducing It to England claim ing for it the ability to rim a vessel as large as the Oceanic. Already an order has been placed by the French government for an engine of this type, to be used in a submarine boat. If the Diesel frees the streets from the smell of the motor car and yacht decks and ladies’ dresses from the cinders of a steamer funnel, the German inventor will have claim on the gratitude of mankind. If, as seems likely, it will encourage the establishment of small plants in rural districts, where gas is not obtainable and coal dear, it may do much more than this for industrial England.— London Express. Curious Changes in Titles Brought About by the Public. The fashion of naming railroads has changed considerably in the last quar ter of a century. The three and four word titles have gone out of style, and one word names succeed them. For instance, the Santa Fe is no longer referred to as the Atchison, To peka and Santa Fe. although this is the corporation title. The old Chicago, Burlington and Quincy has been contracted to simply Burlington by the public decree, and the title Rock Island has replaced the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific. Many towns otherwise practically unknown are kept before the public; 1 because they had the luck to be work ed into a railroad title. For instance, who knows the real name of the Monon Railway Asa matter of fact it was organised as the Chicago, In dianapolis and Louisville Road. The little town of Monon. Ind., gave it its popular name. The Wabash system does not take its name from the river, but from ft station of this uamc on the line. One of the most sensible railroad names was selected for the combina tion of railroads organized in the south and now known as the Southern I Railway. The Southern is very fit ting as it enters nearly every south- I era state. It is also an economical name. Another name that strikes you is the Cotton Belt. This is how the St. C-. 500 TAOS. kjg&GOO TASS. \ ,5 .... too TA <3 9. 2°o TAGS. Louis Southwestern Railroad has been modernized. As it passes through one of the largest cotton producing regions of the United States it is very appropriate. Because a little road up in Nova Scotia, with the ponderous title of the Dominion and Atlantic, reached the land made famous in Longfellow’s poem tourists have given it the title of the Evangeline Road, and perhaps this is more appropriate than the other. It is certainly more pictur esque. A change which must have shocked the directors was in the case of the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louia. This was altogether too much for its patrons and the railway men, and someone thought of the size of the cities named and called it the Big Four. Down in Texas and the neighboring states they have a habit of handling the railroads without gloves when it comes to giving names. A favorite plan is to take the principal initials of a road and spell them out. Only a native of the Southwestern ranches TOBACCO TAGS Tn tags from STANDARD NAVY Plug; SPEAR HEAD; J.

The New York capitalists who built another road thought that Mis souri, Kansas and Texas would be a suitable name, but the Texas people reduced it to Katy.
