Tj/fkßeturn of Common Sense Experience, scientific management and conditions govern the operation of all railroad trains. No arbitrary rule can ever be substituted for common sense, the sum of these factors. When the Full Crew —" excess man crew " —Law, which arbitrarily fixes a minimum number of men for all tfain crews, attempts to take the place of common sense this is the result: One limited passenger train of seven cars is forced to carry a crew of eleven men, not counting the five in the diner. The Metropolitan Limited of nine cars has fourteen men in the crew and ten in the diner. The railroads are yearly forced to waste $2,000,000 in wages for such superfluous men. But when experience, scientific management and conditions dictate, the railroads do not hesitate to man trains in excess of the number set by the Full Crew Law. Every day 480 freight trains in New Jersey and Pennsylvania are carrying more men than the law re quires. For example, one Lehigh Valley Railroad local freight train of about 15 cars is given a crew of seven men—the law requires only five —because there is work to be done. Anxious to speed the return of common sense in train manning, the railroads favor giving the Public Service Commissioners full power over the manning of trains without any restriction as to the minimum or maximum number of men. This will do all that the Full Crew Law was intended to do, and will, in addition, broaden the power in the public's hands. SAMUEL RBA, DANIEL WILLARD, President, Pennsylvania Railroad.

Don't Be Fussy About Eating Your Stomach Will Digest Any Kind of Food When Given the Proper Assistance We are prone to fall into the error of singling out some article of food and soundly berating the fiend who first invented the dish. The habit grows with some people till almost all food is put on the blacklist. This is all wrong. What is required is a little assistance with those agencies upon which scientific students for many years have set their seal of approval because they have become absolute facts. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets for all stomach disorders are recognized; they have a fine record, they are rated reliable, dependable and worthy of con fidence just as the president of a big bank puts his O. K. on a depositor's cheek. And so you can eat what you ■want, whatever you like, knowing well that should indigestion, sour risings, gas formations, fermentation* or any other stomach distress arise, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets in a few moments will put you right. Coated tongue, bad breath, heart burn. belching, flatulency, bloat—all the symptoms of digestive troubles disappear quickly when these tablets are used. They are not a cure for any thing but dyspepsia and kindred com plaints. But they have brought relief t« more sufferers from digestive dis eases than all the patent medicines and doctor's prescriptions put together. The stomach does the heaviest work of any of the bodily organs, yet it's the one' we treat with the least re gard. We eat too much of the wrong kind of food at any time. The patient stomach stands such treatment as long as it can and then it rebels. You get notice of the rebellion in the shape of the gases and paios caused by undi gested, fermenting food.
