Nashvillk, March 19. A day or
so ago a slim wiry looking individ
ual, with flashing black eyes and
nicely cut cameo features, walked
into the recruiting office of the
United States army at Helen wood
and asked 10 be enlisted. After
filling out the proper blanks the
ulender looking individual was told
to divest himself of his wearing ap
parel, as he would have to submit
to a physical examination.
Upon hearing this the applicant
became highly indignant, and with
a volley of oaths declared he would
never submit to any such ordeal.
The recruiting officers realized that
a representative of the weaker sex
was endeavoring to gain admittance
into the regular army.
After allowing her indignation
gradually to effervesce, and ex
tracting a solemn promise from the
recruiting officers that they would
never divulge her name, this mod
ern Belle Starr walked out of the
office, mounted her horse and rode
away like wind, leaving no one any
wiser as to whence she came or
whither she was ;oing.

Service Medals
Being distributed to employes of the Illinois
Id comujJiuoration of the Fiftieth Anniversary
of the incorporation of the. Illinois Central Kail
road Company throueh the act of the State of
Illinois, approved February 10, 1851, upon rec
ommendation of Mr. Stuyvesant Fish, President,
the Board of Directors decided in January last
that the Company woTld give as a souvenir to
every person in the employ of the Company
during the month of February. 1901, who sln.ll
have served continuously far one year or more, a
bronze medal, bearing the trade mark of the Com
pany and on the reverse side the name of the
employe and"the number of full years in which he
shall have served theCouipauy..
The medals have been prepared by Mewrs. Tiffa ny
& Company of Xew York, and are of simple but
chaste design, worked out in sharp lines of relief.
One side is an adaptation of the Company's trade
mark, bearing the familiar legend "Central Missis
sippi Valley Route" in a diamond, with "Illinois
Central B. R. Co., Chartered February 15, 1851,"
in the encompassing circle, underlying the two
being radial bars. On the reverse, following the
rim in relief letters is "Service Souvenir, Fiftieth
Anniversary, 1851-M01" surroundiDg an inner in
scription which reads "I. C. R K. Co. to
after years continuous service" ; the indi
vidual name and years of service being inscribed
on the medal of each person receiving one. A
marked feature of this distribution is the fact that
precisely the same bronze medal is given to vcry
one who has been continuously in the employ f
the Company. No distinction whatever is made
between the highest and the lowest; the services of
those who labor with their hands, and those of the
chief executive officers and board of directors
being recognized in precisely the same way.
The medals are being delivered in installments,
and have already bi?en circulated on wme sections
of the road.

Act . . .
which caused a valuable horse much suffering, but
from which permanent injury was avoided by the
timely use of Mexican Mustang Liniment.
La Grange, Tenn.. Jan. 6. 1901.
Lyon Manufacturing Co.,
Brooklyn, X. Y. -
Dear Sirs : I will say that your Mexican Mustang
Liniment has done a wonderful cure in. this part of the
country. I own the stallion known as the " State of Ten
nessee," who has a large patronage both far and near his
service this Spring to date is 102 mares. I was offered
5400x0 when he was two years old. I refused same. Then
some one took him from the stable and commenced with a
wire and wrapped the right leg from the foot np to his hip.
and after standing all night the leg had swollen so large as to
hide the wire, and in five days the leg bursted and the flesh
turned inside out. I spent large sums of money to hare him
cured but up to five months ago it was quite a failure, and
then a friend induced me to try a bottle of your liniment. I
used one of the 25-cent bottles because I did not have much
faith in it, but it helped him so much that 1 bought a second, -third
and fourth bottle, which completely cured him. The
reason it took so long to cure is that it had a kind of itching
sensation when it was healing a little, when he would bite it
with his teeth. I put the liniment on the wound with a feath
er and rubbed the swollen parts with ray hand.
Mexican Mustang Liniment seemed to take out all the
itching as well as to cause it to heal rapidly, and he showed
no disposition to interfere with it. The one dollar purchase
has been worth hundreds of dollars to me. I keep your
Liniment in my breeding stable all the time, and to those
who have horses I will say it is the best liniment that money
can buy. I wiH answer all inquiring letters.
