The southern railroads arc all con trolled by J. P. Morgan except the Illinois Central, which is classed with the Ilarriraan system. The mile: age of Morgan's Southern railway system is 18,897 miles, with a capi talization of $207,500,000. Soins Independent Lines. Of course there are still a number of American lines like the Chicago Great Western, Minneapolis and St. Salt Lake railroad, built during the last four years by Senator W. A. Clark, has practically become a Har- riman line. Senator Clark, who in- tended to make his ro.nl acompetitor to Harriman 's Oregon Short Line and to furnish an outlet for inde nendent lines from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles and San Pedro harbor, has sold lately a half interest in the prooerty to the Harriman interests, and portions of the Oregon Short Line which it paralleled have been merged with it. Status of the Alton. Although the Moore brothers and their allies at present hold a major ity of the stock of the Chicago and Alton, the road may still be cuassed as a Harriman property, as Mr. Har riman continues to direct its man agement and has a majority of its board of directors. It is not thought that the Rock Is land interests bought Alton as a per manent investment. The llincis Central, although not closely affiliated with any of the big syndicates, is put in the Harri man eolnmri, as Mr. Harriman is not only a director but a member of the executive committee of the company. The Illinois Central has a mileage of 4.2?4 and connects with the Union Pacific at Omaha and the Southern Pacific at New Orleans, and has close traffic, arrangements with both of these Harrinian roads. Another line which may properly be 'called a Harriman line is the Knsas City Soul hern, "'formerly the Kansas City, "; Pittsburg and Gulf. Harriman has a large interest in this road and is one of its directors Tbe rod runs from Kansas City to F-crt Smith, Ark., and Lake Charles La. Tt has a mileage of $50 and is valuable as a gulf outlet. Marked Down. "Ton must mark down your age in this blank snce," said the insur ance, agent to the beautiful woman. And she did.

BEST TENANTS ARE CLERKS THEY ABE MEN OF METHODIC AL HABIT S SELD OM MOVE A GOOD, STEADY CLERK Is the Most Desirable The Moving Man is Not Generally Wanted as a Tenant. In the Chicago, Tribune of yes terday appeared the following which is most interesting: If you are going to build a fiat or apartment house in the city for rent ing puropses, see that you locate it in the better residence districts ar.d build it so that the rental for all the ipartments or Hats average over $20 a month. As renters for your building secure families whereof the heads and masters are engaged in clerical work preferably those .wT.o have held positions with a lar?e mer cantile house for a number of years and your life as a landlord will be one of serenity and contmr. The . clerk, everything considered pro and con, is the best tenant in the long list of people who rent flats. This is the verdict of several real estate men o the city. The clerk may not receive so high a salary as the men employed in many other occupations. His finances do not generally admit of his renting a fiat or apartment with the. rent running up to $100 a month, nor does his personal -.appearance or the equip ment of his home lend any particu lar prestige to the building wherein he resides. But and this is what makes him a person of eternal joy and satisfaction to the man with the Hats to rent he does pay his rent regularly and -lie is not addicted to moving hither and thither with great frequency when the spirit moves him. Steady Clerk Most Desirable. "If I could count among our rent ers 50 per cent of clerks the trouble of running a renting hureau would be cut down fully one-fourth," said the man 'who has had charge of the renting department of a large down town real estate firm for years. "There is little doubt the clerk and his family are the best possible kind of people to rent flats to. Of course, the ordinary clerk with a salary of $12 a week and no permanent posi tion to look to is not any more de sirable as a tenant than a man mak ing the same amount of money at any other occupation. "But it is not this kind of a clerk whom ,we seek to fill our buildings with. The man with the steady job. one which he has held for several years, is the fellow we like to -do business with. and we do not care particularly whether he is a" Sigh salaried man or not.' IT a man has held one -'job "with? one firm for five or six years -he' is -generally in a po sition to- pay for what - hf; : contracts. He does not live beyond his income. Furthermore, the fact that he holds one position so long indicates that he is a man of some abiity and character. J Remains Long in Same House. "While the old adage 'a rolling stone gathers no moss has been oft en laughed to scorn in this modem day and been proved fallacious, at least to their own satisfaction, ' by certain modern minds, in this busi ness we think it is still a good rule to bind to. Frequent shifting- of home and occupation may be one ex pression of activity, bt it is a form of activity which, while conducive -to business on the part of the moving man, is not. at all compatible with a filled, well paying rent list. "There are a number of srood rea sons why clerks with established po sitions are the best kind of men to have at the heads of the families to which you rent your flats,. In the first place, there is steadiness. - In this. respect alone, the clerk is enough better than many other classes of men to entitle him to the front rank in a search for the ideal tenant. Pecmise of the nature of his work, which demands methods and ' a cer tain kind of mechanical routine, his habits of life become fixed on him more than the average man s share of firmness. Man of Fixed Methods. "Of course, to be available as a tenant for a flat he must be married, and after he is married the aver?e clerk settles down to married life, laying the rules of his household, so far as mere man may lay them, along the. same lines of regularity that prevail at the office. Above all things, he dislikes to move. When he gets into a house he likes to stay there. This is further evidence of the firmness with which the habit of method is fixed in him. Just as he likes to come to the same ofiice each morning nd find the same work waiting for him on the same desk, s- he likes to come home each even ing to'tb" sume house. This method of living will sound dreadfully mo notonous to many, but it is only a pleasant, well regulaied system of things to .the old, clerk, . ' "The average clerk of. the kind I refer to is able to. and does rent a flat which costs him over $20 a month, possibl ythe average will be over. $25. Even if he earns less money than a man in some other vocation he will have his financial affairs arranged so there is allow ance made for every item of house hold expense. Prompt on "Rent Day." "We have had pome tenants for five years who- have never missed 'rent day payment by a single day. The majority of these were clerks. While the wife must also be con sidered seriously when it comes to choosing the best tenant,, that is one circumstance over which no man or class of men has control. However, the wives of men occupied in clerical work are much easier to please and satisfy than the wife of the lower class workman or the wife of the 'nearly swell.' "But the thing that makes the clerk the tenant to be most desired by a landlord is the fact that he pays his rent regularly. It is be yond the rany of human possibil ities to find any class of tenants who are entirely satisfied with their quarters and who never make com plaint, so we do not look for this. We let well enough alone. If a man pays his rent regularly and does not in any way make himself ob streperous about his flat, we are quite satisfied and reckon him a star tenant. The clerk does this, and consequently he is the man we like to do business with." BABY'S HEAD Came Near Being Chopped Off by Little Brothers. Appleton, Wis., November 12. Two little sons of Mrs. William Krauseh, of Center, have tried to cut, their baby sister's head off after seeing tbeir mollier cut the heads oil of several ehiekens. The little fellows laid the baby's head on a block and the oldest boy lifted an ax and struck at the baby girl's neck. Ha went wide of the mark, and a.s he raised the ax to strike a sec ond time he was stopped by a farm er who happened to drive by. PLENTY OF PROOF From People You Know From Richmond Citizens. The greatest skeptic can hardly fail to be convinced in the face of evidence like this. It is impossible to produce better proof of merit than the testimony of , residents of Richmond, of people who can be seen at any time. Read the following case of it: W. W. Rogers, 305 South Four teenth street says: "For many years I followed brick laying as a trade, and it is to the exposure and stoop ing when working at it that I at tributed my kidney trouble. I had for ten years attacks of severe pain through the small of my back and in the kidneys so severe at times that the least movement up or .down caused twinges of pain. I used near ly everything I heard about, but could get no relief. When I heard abo'it Bonn's Kidney Pills being so highly recommended I got them at A. O. Luken & Co.'s drug store. I took two or three boxes and my health was better than for a long time." For sale by all dealers. Pries 50 cents per box. Foster-Milburn Co., jluiffalo, N.
