Upholding tbe sweep ing advances in rates oh southeastern traffic, on many cases 'and commodi ties ,as justified by the condition of the railroads and the needed improved facilities, the interstate commerce commission in a divided decision, dis missed the cases instituted by the rail road commissions of Alabama and Georgia and the A. P. Morgan Grain company of Atlanta, Ga., and others. The decision ina have- an import ant bearing on otier pending cases. the Southwestern snippers' case, which was heard by the commission ana taken under advisement, anrW the wholesale increases in rates the railroads generally, now suspef!i by The commission pending investigation. The decision involves the Atretic C'oat Hue, the Louisville and! ville and other roads as defej The advances involved weA on August 1, 1908, and the niafC, f y opinion, written by CommisslAer Cockrell, held that they were .'not iound to be unjust, unreasonable nor unduly discriminatory. The decision covered the advances generally to Ala bama, Georgia, Florida and the" Caro- linas from Ohio and Mississippi river crossings. The majority opinion holds that both the adjustment of rates be tween Birmingham and . Atlanta and the advances made August 1, 1908, were based on increasing taxatiojfl and in the prices of material and labor. "The condition of most of the rail roads in this section of the country," says the majority opinion, "is not yet up to the Highest standard, and in or der that their facilities may be im proved and extended to the ultimate lasting advantage of the people of the South, it is necessary that the carriers be permitted to charge ratea that are fully compensatory for the services they perform, so long as such rates have not been shown to be unjust, un reasonable, or excessive, with respect uu yuwv.. , SJTirZ that,an advancers t3f? cftiis-soib part.pf tEe- ,-liiir tlre- firi'm, urill arnrnn tn n rnrriftr that dur- to the public. We are unable toxoid from" will accrue to .a carrier tht dur ing the period of the last ted years uas regularly aid interest on" its total bonded debt, and in addition thereto has recently paid dividends upon us stock." . . It was alleged that these increases were only a part of a general advance made or to be made in the freight rates throughout the South. The de cision, however, is confined to the spe cific matters now in issue, and, the commission says, is not to be con strued as extending beyond them or as indicating in any degree approval of other or further advances in rates. The advances were in meats, flour, grain, packing house products, etc., mostly time freight that must be mov ed promptly, the wheat and corn mill ed in transit without extra charge, and the loss and damage claims, higher than the average on all commodities. Dissenting opinions were led by Commissioners Lane and Clements. Mr. Clements contended there was no justification for the threatened burden upon the transportation of this section of the country, either in the needs of carriers, the history of rates or the ability of the public to pay 12 cents per capita more for the staples af fected. A million . dollars a year more if! freight rates is what five states of the I Southeast will have to continue to pay as a result of the decision. In fact, these five states have been paying this increase ever since Au gust 1, 1908, when tho advance of 2 cents a hundred on grain, grain prod ucts, flour and packing house products and 3 cents a hundred on fresh meats, from Ohio river points into the South east, was put into effect by the rail roads. They have been paying it, and hop Ing that the interstate commerce com mission would relieve them from It by decision that the advance was unjust. But the commission thought other wise. And this decision, too, evidently means that not only will the South 'nave to continue ,to pay this million a year increase, but that other in creases on other products will be put Into effect, Just as soon as the rail rciids get ready to issue the notices. So, the million increase that these five Southern states, North and South Carolina, Georgia. Florida and Ala bama, are now paying Ib, In all proba bility, only a drop in tho bucket com Dared with what is to come. The Interstate commerce commls Blons' decision Is an end of the mat ter so far as the shipper la concerned, he has no appeal. ' On the other hand, if the decision had been unfavorable to the railroads, they would have had the right of ap peal to the courts. When the new court of commerce is organized the railroads may appeal trom the commission to that court, and if its decision Is" not satisfactory, they may go on to the Supreme court o! the United States. f.

"Your little boy must be very In telllgent," said a1 visitor to a Boston school teacher whose five-year-old son was forming Greek words with build Inr blocks. "Intelligent!" exclaimed the proud parent "He is phenomenally gifted. As an example of his early erudition, what do you suppose were the first words he ever spoke?" "'Papa' and 'mamma?'"

"Two years ago I found myself on tho verge of a complete nervous col lapse, due to overwork and study, and to illness In the family," writes a Wis consin young mother.
