Atlanta. Dec. s.—Traffic officials of the railroads entering Atlanta and this city's committee of seven will resume their conference on the freight rate situation at the Piedmont Hotel here to-morrow. It is understood that the railroads will come into the conference with a proposal to re-adjust the present rates from certain basic points on the Poto mac and Ohio rivers with a view to giving Atlanta proportionately the same rates from the East as Augusta now enjoys, and the same proportion ate rates from the West as are now given to Chattanooga and Birmingham. No schedule of rates has been made out and only the general plan will be discussed. If it is satisfactory to the Atlanta committee it will take some months to work out the details, as this would mean practically a read justment of rates throughout the whole Southern territory.

Fathers Huutlugtan and Hngli son Wry Capable AVorkcri. The special services at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, known as ’’The Mis sion." will begin on next Sunday morn ing. As announced in the Morning News yesterday, they will be conducted by the two well-known “Mlssioners," Rev. Fathers Huntington and Hughson. The rector of the church. Rev. Gilbert A. Ottmann, has announced the fol lowing programme of services: On Sunday, Dec. 11, and Sunday, Dec. IS, there will be Holy Communion at 7:30 a. m.; Holy Communion and ser mon at 11 a. m.; children's service at 4 p. m„ and mission service, with in struction, at 8 p. m. On every week day from Dec. 12 to 20, inclusive, the following programme will be followed: Holy Communion, 7:30 a. m.; Holy Communion, with in struction, addresses to womeig at 10:30 a. m.; children's mission at 4 p. m.; service of intercession at 8 p. m., and mission service, with instruction, at 8:15 p. m. Rev. Father James O. S. Hunting ton, O. H. C., is a son of the late Rt. Rev. Frederick D. Huntington, S. T. D., bishop of New York. Father Huntington is a graduate of Harvard University, and more than twenty three years ago founded the Order of the Holy Cross, of which he is now a member and the president. He has made his life work a study of man kind and their needs. He has gone Into the slums of New York city and into the hay fields of the country dis tricts, in order that he might learn Just how to approach men and how best to deal with them. His talks are certain to be interesting and in spiring. Rev. Father Shirley c. Hughson, O. H. C.. is a South Carolinian by birth and rearing. His college education was received at the South Carolina Col lege and at Johns Hopkins University. His theological training was received at the General Theological Seminary of New York. His life work has been de voted to charity and missions and the success that has attended his former meetings indicates that the mission here will be a success also. The rector of St. Paul's, in speaking of the missions, said "The holding of missions is not anew thing in. the church, though it may be in Savannah. They are special services held by special men, for the purpose of helping men and women to know God and themselves. Their purpose is to bring men nearer to God and to help them in their religious life. They are not intended to arouse any excitement, but only to create a deep and lasting knowledge and experience of religious living. Missions are intended to help us, and they will do this if we avail ourselves of them. The services are not for the members of St. Paul’s alone, but for all who desire to attend them.” NEGRO REPORTED DEAD IS STILL LIVING. Lina Singleton, the old negro wom an who was badly burned by an ex ploding lamp several weeks ago on Park avenue, west, and who was re ported as dead several days later, has completely recovered from her burns.

Judge Called Ipott the Grand Jury to Indict.

FOR TWENTY YEARS. Not an Unusual Instance. "I used Pyramid Pile Cure and have not had any trouble since. I have been a sufferer with piles for twenty years. I think it is the best remedy on earth for piles. Hoping this may help others to use this remedy,” Mrs. J. D. Teller, R. F. D., 20, Sparta, Mich. It Is a singular fact that although many women suffer from piles, or hemorrhoids, they frequently do not have proper treatment because of a delicacy women have in mentioning such a subject. Especially is this the case with those who have no husband or brother in whom they can confide; and a physician is seldom consulted until the pain and agony incident to piles becomes unbearable. Thousands of women have suffered even longer than did Mrs. Teller, al ways experiencing slight or temporary relief. If any. from the various reme dies used and finally settling down to the conviction that a cure In their cases was impossible. Pyramid Pile Cure has come as a boon to all such, as it seldom, if ever fails to effect a permanent cure. It Is sold by druggists for fifty cents a package, or will be mailed by the makers to any address, upon receipt of price. Absolute se crecy Is guaranteed, and no name Is ever used without the consent of the writer. It is suggested that those interested write to Pyramid Drug Cos., Marshall, Mich., for their little book describing the causes and cure of piles, as it is sent free for the asking.
