A PLAIN AND POWERFULL ADDRESS ON
LIVE" QUESTIONS OF GREAT INTEREST.
RAILROAD
Shall they be determined by
Industrial Warfare or
Federal Inquiry?
To the American Public:
Do you believe in arbitration or indus
trial warfare?
The train employes on all the railroads
are voting whether they will give their leaders
authority to tie up the commerce of the
country to enforce their demands for a 100
million dollar wage increase.
The railroads are in the public service—
your service. This army of employes is in
.•* the public service—your service.
You pay for rail transportation 3 billion
dollars a year, and 44 cents out of every
dollar from you goes to the employes.
On all the Western railroads in 1915, seventy-five per cent of the
train employes earned these wages (lowest, highest and average
of all) as shown by the pay rolls—

The average yearly wage payments to all Western train em
ployes (including those who worked only part of the year) as
shown by the 1915 payrolls were—
A 100 million dollar wage increase for
men in freight and yard service (less than
one-fifth of all employes) is equal to a 5 per
cent advance in all freight rates.

The managers of the railroads, as trustees
for the public, have no right to place this
burden on the cost of transportation to you
without a clear mandate from a public tri- fcfl,
bunal speaking for you. z£^ii
The railroads have proposed the ^settle- Ji
-ment of this controversy either under the
existing national arbitration law, or by refer
ence to the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion. This offer has been refused by the
employes' representatives.
Shall a nation-wide strike or an

Richmond, Va. "After taking
seven bottles of Lydia E. Pinkham's

pound I feel like a
new woman. I al

While Change of Life is a most crit
ical period of a woman's existence, the
annoying symptoms which accompany
it may be controlled, and normal health
restored by the timely use of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Such warning symptoms area sense
of suffocation, hot flashes, headaches,
backaches, dread of impending evil,
timidity, sounds in the ears, palpitation,
of the heart, sparks before the eyes,
irregularitiegfc.constipatipn, variable ap

dizziness.
For these abnormal conditions do not
fail to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege

"On the Side of the Angels."
In "The Widowhood of Queen Vic
toria" Miss Clare Jerrold tells about a
speech made by Disraeli at Oxford
deprecating the theme of the moment
Darwinism:
"What is the question?" he asked.
"It is now placed before society witb
I might say. a glib assurance which to
me is astonishing. The question is, 'is
man an ape or an angel?" Now, I am
on the side of the angels."
Punch caught it up promptly:
On the side of the angels, my Dizzy? Ah,

When a Dead Whale Sinkg.
It buiipens on rare occasions tliut a
dying wliale, "somidiug" deeply, fails
to rise again to the surface and re
mains in the sea depths after death.
The "flsh" is not lost, however. From
some unexplained cause the gases set
free by decomposition inside the car
cass Slid their "way to the whale's
tongue. This organ becomes inflated,
resembling a huge balloon, and by its
buoyancy brings the body of the dead
whale to the surface, when it is picked
up by the crews. The process of infla
tion and flotation commences within a
few hours of death, and the lapse of
two or three days will generally suf
•flce to bring the body of a "lost" whale
up from the sea floor.—Exchange. .vV

The Bahamas.
The Bahamas make up their 4,466
square miles with 29 islands, 661 cays
and 2,387 rocks. They have the dis
tinction of being the first point of land
in the western hemisphere discovered
by Columbus, who' sighted bat island
on Oct. 12, 1402, and christened it San
Salvador in acknowledgment of his
preservation. The islands were taken
possession of by Sir Humphrey Gilbert
in 157S. but no settlement was made
till 1629. After changing hands once
or twice the islands finally became
British in 1783.—Westminster Gazette.

No Other Building on the Farm
Pays For Itself So Quickly
A Government expert says that "Good hog men
average about seven pigs raised to the litter. Many
do better. But the general average raised on the farm
IPS,does not exceed four pigs to the litter."
|A'« CT This big difference is largely in the housing. The||
'Ifuestion is not so much a matter of cost as the propergg
design of a hog house. Many hog houses cost enough
to be good, but are entirely unfit because the sun
cannot shine into the pens. Sunshine and ventila
tion are absolutely necessary.
On the other hand, inexpensive houses often
give better results than more costly ones
because of the better design.
The design is what counts. Here's
vhere we can help you.

Southey'a Industry.
Southey probably deserves to rank:
as the most industrious of authors. In
the greater part of Ills life he spent
fourteen hours a day in composition.
He had six tables in his library. He
wrote poetry at one, history at anoth
er, criticism at a third, and so on with
the other subjects upon which he was
engaged. He once described to Mine
do Stael the division of his time—two
hours before breakfast for history, two
hours for reading after, two hours for
the composition of poetry, two hours
for criticism, and so on through all his
working day. "And pray, Mr. South
ey," asked madame, "when do you
think?"—Loudon Chronicle.
