Woman's power is lareely dependent
upon her ability to interest, entertain, at- .
tract and please. It is for this reason that
women strive to become accomplished.
They study in order that they may converse
intelligently on all subjects. They strive
to become good musicians, graceful dan
cers and amiable hostesses. I
All accomplishments are unavailing if a
woman suffers from ill-health in a womanly
way. The special weakness peculiar to the
womanly organism, will rapidly wreck the
general health. The sufferer will lose her
natural vivacity, her wit, her good looks,
and the ambition and power to display the
accomplishments at her command. Any
woman affected in this way should resort
to Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It is
a wonderful medicine for ailing women. It
is the invention of an eminent and skillful
physician. Dr. R. V. Pierce, for thirty years
chief consulting physician to the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical - Institute, at Buffalo,
N. Y. It aims to cure but one class of dis
eases, and claims to be good for nothing
else. It imparts health, elastic strength,
vigor and virility to the delicate feminine
organs. It prepares a woman for wifehood
Mrs. Ramon Sanchez. Penasco, Taos County,
N. Mn in a letter to Dr. Pierce says: " From
grateful heart my voic Roes up to God both night

your health and preserve your life. I hereby ex

received from your wonderful medicine. Favor

KILLED HKR ENGINEER.
H. Engine 815 Turned Over Last
Evening: With Fatal Results.
The third of the three bis? Schenec
tady locomotives, 815, jumped a curve
early last evening five miles east of
La" e try while pullmer an east bound
freight, turned over down the embank
ment, fatally crushing her engi-eer.
George Smith, aged 30, and badly
bruised her fireman, W. G. Dulling,
acred 22. The locomotive rolled over
to the right, which accounts for the
runner's not being able to save him
self, while the fireman on tbe left side
of the cab threw him elf out of his
window, and according to reports es
caped without broken bones, though
severely bruised and shaken up. Both
men live in ban Antonio, and Smith
leaves a wife a'd two children, while
Dullnig is unmarried. Smith was
al've, it is reported when pulled out
from under the wrecked cab, but be
tween the scalds from tbe broken
steam pipes and the crushing be re
ceived, the poor fellow died during
the nitrht. His remains have been sent
on to San Antonio, where the fireman
has been also taken Rfor treatment.
There was a rumor that the hed
brakeman was Injured, but this has
not been verified. A wrecking train
was sent out immediately from El
Paso with' Supt. Martin and Wrecking
Master Borcherding, and remarkably
fast time was made to the wreck which
was reached about 11 o'clock. P; ur
empty box cars followed the engine
and were broken up.
Those three big Schenectadies have
now taken their turn over, and each
has killed her man. They were
brought from the Schenectady locomo
tive works soms three years ago to
run on the Sunset Limited. But while
being "limbered up" on the freights
and passenger runs they "exhibited
traits of character'' that made tbe
company go 6low about trying them on
the Sunset flyers. Engine 813 while
pulling the pay train west bound jump
ped the traek and turned over near
Tabor, killing Engineer Luff and Fire
man Burr. Then one month later, 814
while p-illing the east bound regular
passenger near Malone turned over
and killed her Engineer Thompson.
These accidents, so near together and
so nearly related in character, caused
a deal of surmise and speculation. The
engines and tbeir trucks are equipped
with brakes a new feature for this
country, and a supposition was in some
quarters that when the brakes were
applied to these truck wheels, it caused
a tendency to buckle and camp on the
rail making it easy for the engine to
ride off the pivot and force thetrucks
off the track. Others held that
tbe machines were improperly
equalized, and there was too little
weigbt on the trucks. Tbe first theory
was never proved satisfactorily, al
though the brakes wern removed as a
precaution against further trouble.
The latter theory was sufficiently well
thourbt of to warrant serious attention,
and the local management had the en
gines re-equal izd; that is, the equaliz
ing levers so readjusted as to throw
more of the weigbt of the engines onto
tbe trucks. Then all went well, and
the big machines have even been given
passengers runs without unfavorable
results, until lat evening. It is a very
rougn country around Langtry, and
the condition of the track may have
caused the accident rather than any
fault of the engine. However, this will
be brought out in the investigation.
In the meantime public sympathy goes
nut to the poor widow and orphans,
and lends additional emphasis to the
dangers that beset the life of a railway
Cost of a Naval Battle.
A battle between the American
battleship Indiana and the Spanish
ba'tlesblp Pelayo would wipe off the
face of tbe eartb property wortn o,-
973 000. All this in an hour. Each
ship cost ths same. The destruction
of either would mean a loss of 83,670,
000 It is probable that the other
wuld be damaged half its value or SI,
83o.000. Those two incidents of naval
engagement would mean a total des-
truct on ol o,ouo,uuu. n,acn oi tne Dig
guns would be discharged twenty
times. That is the average number.
Etch time the 16 big rifles of the In
diana were discharged it would cost
the government $12,000. In the course
of 60 minutes they would belch forth
8240,000 wo to of shot ano; shelj. Four
of her guns cost 8600 each every time
they were dischargea: lour oi tnem
$1 ,000 each ; e' gh t of them 8700 each .
Besides tnege sne carries two au-
Mng guns. Their capacity Is 1,200
shots a minute. To operate each gun
$300 worth of cartridges must be pro
vided each minute. It is not probable
that they would be fired for more than
fifteen minute, out even tnat D-iet
time would mean an expense ef 84.5.00
for each gun, or 88,000 for both That
would bring the total expense of an
hour's engagement up to 8246,000 or
$4,150 a minute, or a little more than
$69 a second.
To operate the Pelayo would cost a
trifle of $30,000 lefs than this total.
She carries sevente n big guns. A
single discharge of all of them wruld
cost $10,000. One of her big guns cost
$650 to shoot; twelve of them 8500 each;
two of tnem uu eacb; two qf them
$900 each, Besides these she carries
four Gatling guns of the fa re capacity
as those of the Indiana, and operated
at the same cost. To fire them fifteen
minutes would cost 818.000. The to al
cost of the engagement to the Pelayo
would be 8219,000 an average of 83,650
a minute, or $60 a second, with a few
pennies to f pare.
Therefore, supposing that one ship
would be wholly wrecked and the oth
er badly disahled, the total co-it of this
one bat'le between our govemme-t
and that of Spa'n, count n? $460 000
worth of ammunition, wou'd be dan
gerously near $6,000,000. If the In
diana were destroyed the fight would
cost the United Ste $3 919.000. If
the were on'y disabled we would es
cape with a loss of $2,084,000 Tbe
destruction of the P-1 yo would mean
a loss to Spain of $3,889 000. If she
were only disabled the expanse to the
Spaniards would be $2,054,000. Ex.

A Cos'ly Mausoleum.
John W. Mackay, the California
millionaire, is building at Greenwood
Cemetery the most costly and remark
able mausoleum in America.
The cost has bef n estimated at $400,-
000. The mausoleum w 11 be heated
and lighted by electricity. It will
have tbe finest mosaics and art works.
A jewel altar will be erected, at which
a requiem mass will be sung every
This magnificence is in memory of
John W, Mackay, Jr., the son who was
accidentally killed in Paris two or
three year- ago.
It is said that never before has elec
tric heat and light been introduced in
tr a mausoleum the resting plaoe of
the dead. But in Brooklyn the per
mit has been granted by the depart
ment of public buildings, lighting and
supplies, for the stringing of wires to
supply tbe electric current.
'2'ha Mackay mausoleum has been in
process of building for abaut nine
months, and although the work on it
has been pushed, it is not expected
that it will be completed much within

"Copper is in greater demand today, "
said L. N. Trimble of New York at
the miners' bureau in Denver, ' 'than it
has ever b -en. There is not in the
country a sixty days' supply of all
kinds of copper, and of that particular
quality used for electrical engineering

day or ninety da s' delivery for less
than izi cents a pound, and as tbe
demacd is constantly increasing the
price will undoubtedly go still high
"The great danger to the copper in
dustry from tbii condition of affairs
Is that the price will go so high be
fore new sources of.aupp y are'discover

vested interests in copper mines and
