THE UGLY WORD. When a lovely lassie tells you. As you're sitting by her fcide, That a man has never kissed her. Though a dozen men have tried; Though you doubt it, be not hasty. Let your anger be deferred; Jo not quality the lassie By that short and ugly word. When a lovely lassie whispers That she'll never, never wed; fTbot she's planned to dwell with moth er And to care for her instead. Hold your tougue, O doubting brother. Many times that tale you'vs heard; Just remember she's a lady Kill that short and ugly word. When that self-same la3sie murmurs That a secret she will keep. That she'll tell no living poison In her heart 'twill ever sleep. Don't believe her do not tell her, Treat her statement as absurd: But it's not polite to utter That one short and ugly word. ' When a pretty lassie tells you She can cook, although you know That her mother's in the kitchen. With her arms deep in the dough. Doubting brotner. be not tactless. Though the thought may harp oc curred: Though j-ou'd iike to. stul you mustn't. Speak that short and ugly word. Detroit Free Tress. RULINGS SUCH AS THAT MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR A MAJORITY STOCKHOLDER TO ROB THE MINORITY. New York, Feb. 24 Stuyvesant Fish, has given up his fight against E. H. Harriman for the control of the Illinois Central. Ho has announced that the suit in Judge Bail's Court in Chicago to prevent the voting of Illi nois Central stock held by Harriman corporations is to be dismissed. Mr. Fjsh asserts that he submits to, but does not acquiesce in, the ruling of Judge Bajl dismissing the injunc tion against the voting of the Harri man control of the shares. He adds a few remarks as to his belief that the continued control of the Illinois Central by Harriman will yield no good to the stockholders of the road or to the state of Illinois. In regard to the ruling of Judge Bali, Mr. Fish says: "He has declared that foreign cor porations can do in Illinois what do mestic corporations are prohibited from doing; that one foreign corpora tion can hold stock in parallel and competing linos of railroad companies created by the laws of Illinois, and that no stockholder of any of these companies can complain of such hold ings until they are actually used to suppress competition or to injure the corporations:. 'The hi.s'oi y i f !,!.-;. v i !; e.i : corporations if ii' I'.iueiry tie. as that the minority stockholder lias thiis far permitted the wizards of high finance to rob him with impunity and ease, to suppress competition and to establish a monopoly by the very means which Judge Ball says are le gal in Illinois."

That discharg es of employes, instead of a reduction in the wages of those employed iu or der to bring about a retrenchment in expenses is to be the policy of the rail roads of the country has been voiced here by President Charles S. Mellen. of the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad. Mr. Mellen saw the president, and it is presumed he discussed with him the recent letter from the white house on the subject of railroad affairs. Mr. Mellen declined to state what the outcome of the inter view had been, but added: "We come with our hats in our hands, asking only for consideration, never making demands." Mr. Mellen declared that there was no intention on the part of his road to reduce wages of the employes, but he added: "The panic has effected' busi ness so seriously t hat we have found it necessary to Yeduee the service on our system, and since December last. N.iMxt men have; been dismissed and more are being discharged for the same reason all the time. Business lias fallen off discouraging-, but in the last few weeks there have been symptoms of improvement. The big gest loss is being felt in the freight de part merit. Wages May be Reduced, Too. "Of course, we could not run on for ever in this way. There may come a time when we will be compelled to re duce wages. We will do everything else before that. It is better to re duce the service or increase the rates, or both, rather than decrease the wag es. Mr. Mellen declared that railroads were having great difficulty in meet ing the demands of the ni no-hour law, which goes into effect March 4. He said the roads were not able to get 'enough telegraph operators to man all their stations, and that it might be necessary to close some of them. 9 HEW1ENWAY SIDES -WITH NEGRO SOLDIERS Cannot Agree With President On Question. Washington, Feb. 21 Senator Ilem enway, as a member of the Senate ' Committee on Military Affairs, finds i himself unable to agree with the ! course of the President and Secretary ! Taft in discharging two companies of colored troops for "shooting up" the , town of Brownsville, Tex. The sena j tor listened to the verbal testimony ! snd has since made a careful study of ' thf printed evidence. His analysis of j th stories of those who appeared be i fore the committee convinced him that an injustice has been done the ' colored soldiers, and he probably will i file a minority report this week set ting forth his Individual conclusions in detail. RAILROAD MEN HOPEFUL. Convinced That There Will be No General Wage Reduction. New York, Feb. 24. As a result of their meeting here to consider the re ports that a general cut of wages is threatened among railroad employes, members of the committee of nineteen representing th various railway broth erhoods, were greatly encouraged. They expect to bear assurances to members of the various unions that on the great majority of railroads, at least, no reductions are to be feared. With Eastern roads standing by the prevailing scales, the committee be lieves Western roads will fsel com pelled to do the same thing. They may be a few small railroads primari ly injured by the business depression which will be compelled to reduce sal aries, but the concensus of opinion re sulting from the conference is that on the whole there is little foundation for the pessimistic reports circulated.
