Judge Towner Holds That Hepburn Law Applies to Bit. Ayr Case, and Jury Returns Verdict Against Railroad for $1,000. A caue which was tried at Mt. Ayr last week has attracted state wide attention by reason of Judge Town er's ruling that the Hepburn law is practically an enactment of the Iowa law regulating railroads. This law prohibits the making of contracts by common carriers limiting their li abilities for negligence in the trans porting and delivering of freight. The case went to trial on its mer its, and the jury returned a verdict in favor of the plaintiffs for 1,000. V. R. McGinnis, of Leon, was tlie principal attorney for the plaintiffs, and it was quite a victory. The Mt. Ayr Record-News, gives the follow ing account of the trial of the case: The case of Pine Brothers against the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy ctailroad Company, which was begun in the district court Tuesday morn ing, was submitted to the jury at about four o'clock yesterday even ing, and after being out all night, the jury reached an agreement this morning at 8:30. The vcrdict was favorable to the plaintiffs r.iu? fixes the amount of damages at $l,uUd. The action was brought by Pine Brothers to recover damages for the loss of a stallion purchased by them at Bushnell, 111., and shipped o\er the railroad of the defendant com pany in May, 1908. The horse was a Shire stallion three years of age for which the plaintiffs paid $1,400. The horse was loaded on the cars at Bushnell at three o'clock p. m. on Tuesday and did not arrive at Diag onal until about noon on Friday. Evidence was adduced on the trial of the case to show that the horse contracted pleuro pneumonia on the road and that eleven dayB after the horse was delivered in Diagonal it died, The contention of the plain tiffs was that there was unnecessary delay and gross neglect on the part of the defendant in transporting the horse and that by reason of said de lay and negllgencp damages were claimed in the sum of $1/900. One important point in the case was the determining of the liability of the road as a common carrier. In consigning the horse for shipment defendants had signed a contract in which the valuation of the horse was fixed at $100. This contract was introduced by defendants and the claim made that by reason of the contract defendants were not liable for damages in excess of the valua tion fixed in the contract. To this plaintiffs demurred and the argu ment of attorneys were heard by the court before the trial of the case to the jury. Judge Towner held that under the interstate commerce law, commonly known as the Hepburn rate law, the company could not exempt them selves from liability for the amount of damages sustained, but that the agreement fixing the valuation at $100, if it was made for the purpose IS of obtaining a lower freight rate, would be binding upon the plaintiffs. The Pine brothers testified that the contract was aij arbitary one and that the valuation was fixed by the company's agent. Both plaintiffs and defendant were represented by able counsel. Hon. V. R. McGinnis, of Leon, and county attorney Charles J. Lewis, appearing for plaintiffs and Hon. R. H. Spence and Hon. Lewis Miles, of Oorydon, appearing for defendant. The principal point at issue in the case was the fixing of the responsi bility for the death of the horse. Plaintiffs testified that the animal was sound and well when he was placed in the car at Bushnell, that the train that was to carry the horse to Galesburg was about three hours late in leaving the station, that the car containing the horse was placed on the sidetrack at Galesburg where it stood for twelve hours, that it was then carried to Ottumwa and was again sidetracked and remained lor two or three hours when it was pick ed up by an extra freight train and hauled to Chariton, on the way stop ping tor a period of time at a siding arriving at Chariton it was again sidetracked and left standing until morning, another'delay was made at Osceola that the car was then taken to Van Wert where it remained over night and was then taken by the reg ular freight on the K. & W. to Diag onal. At Osceola the horse was found to be ailing and a veterinary was called in who diagnosed the case as kidney trouble at Van Wert the horse was so sick that Mr. Pine, who accompanied the horse and cared for him on the way, became alarmed and sent for Dr. Abarr, of Diagonal. The horse was then found to be suffering from bronchitis, which afterwards developed into pleuro pneumonia from which the horse died. All the conductors who had charge of the trains that carried the horse testified in the trial in behalf of the defendant and from this testimony and the schedules in force at the time of shipment, and from the test! mony of the agent who had charge of the station at Bushnell when the consignment was made the defend ants argued that the company was hot guilty of neglect or unnecessary delay in carrying the horse from Bushnell to Diagonal. Besides the Pine Brothers and the employes of the railroad company who testified in the trial, Dr. W. A. McClanahan, of Redding, Dr. A. Abarr, of Diagonal, and Dr. E. C. Sheumaker, of this city, testified on behalf of the plaintiffs and the state veterinarian and one of the deputy state veterinarians testified on be half of the defendant. The entire day Wednesday was devoted to hearing the evidence and yesterday morning the attorneys be gan their pleas. County attorney Lewis made the opening argument for the plaintiffs. He was followed by Mr. Spence ajid Mr. Miles for the defendant and Mr. McGinnis closed the argument for the plaintiffs. Judge Towner then read his charge to the jury.

Professor Unna, of Hamburg, Ger many, and Dr. Sabourand the lead ing French dermatologist, discovered that a microbe caused baldness. Their theory has time and again be verified through research experiments carried on under the observation of eminent scientists. This microbe lodges ia the Sebur, which is the natural hair oil, and when permitted to flourish it distroys the hair follicles and itt time the pores entirely close, and the scalp gradually takes on a shiny ap pearance. When this happens there is no hope of the growth of the hair being revived. Dandruff is a contagious disease* which is largely due to a destructive microbe, which when left to pursue its course causes itching scalp, fall ing hair and baldness. Dandruff is. caused by the microbe affecting the glands which produce the sebaceons S matter, which later then naturally- I dries up and scales off. We have a remedy which will, we honestly believe, remove dandruff, exterminate the microbe, promote I good circulation in the scalp and around the hair roots, tighten and re-^ vitalize the hair roots and overcome baldness, so long as there is any life left in the hair roots.
