The Arab looks very well on horseback,
though he might not altogether suit the
tastes of the shires. His saddle is generally
red. peaked before and behind, and placed
upon several colored felt saddle cloths; the
stirrup broadens out so as to give a wide
space for the foot to rest on: it is pointed at
the corners, thereby enabling the rider to
tear the bone's ribs even without the aid of
a pointed stick or a steel spear like spur,
which he often pushes between his slipper
and the stirrup side. The Arab solaier,

A Typical Tenant Eviction.
London St. James Gazette.
An eviction took place last week on the
Chisholm estate at Invercannich, Strath
glass, Inveinesshire, the farmer and his
wife being turned out on the highway amid
a downpour of rain, and the house, barn
and stable thereafter set on tire. The work
was carried out at the instance of Chis
holm. with the consent of the trustees and
executors of the estate. To a witness who
was on the spot when the eviction took
place, the wife of the evicted tenant re
lated that her people had been on the
farm for fifty years, Her father had built
every stone of the house and paid for the
wood used in its construction. At the out
set her father had the farm at a yearly ren
tal of £27 10s.; but some years afterwards
it was increased to £30. By dint of hard
labor he was able to pay this sum. but
when the present Chisholm's father got
possession of the estate the rent was in
creased to £40 a year, which the land was
Incapable of yielding. After the furniture
was moved, the house, barn, stable and
dairy were set on lire, and in less than an
hour only the stone walls were left stand
ing. The sheriff's officers then retired,
leaving Peter Shaw and his wife protecting
their goods and chattels as best they could
from the pitiless rain. The scene, the like
of which has not been witnessed in the
Strathglass for many a day. was viewed
afar off by small groups on the hillsides.

"There's sroing to be fun." said one rail- \
road man to another yesterday afternoon.
"You bet your life there's going to be j
fan," he replied, "and the wildest kind of !
fun. too." They were talk about the ]
meeting held Thursday by the Northwest
ern Passenger association, at which the
Omaha claimed that it was living up to the
managers', agreement in letter and spirit,
yet at the same time acknowledged that it
was making a two-cent rate to laborers to
local points on its lines. j
These two railroad men were only two j
of a hundred or more who were discussing ;
the matter yesterday, lt was the general .
topic of conversation in railroad circles and i
there were some "hot" people. |
The Omaha claims that its contract with !
the intelligence office was signed before the
managers* agreement was made, and eon- j
sequent!? it is bound to live up to it. and it
attempts to defend itself by saying that the i
two cent rate was made to only those pas- !
sengers secured through this agency. The
other roads claim that the contract made i
by the Omaha is not a year old by a large j
majority, and was made several months I
after the managers' agreement was settled, i
If this was not the case, they argue that '
the Omaha should have shown the contract
at the managers' meeting, and given the •
other roads some information regarding it.
There arc a dew who think that, inasmuch i
as the Omaha road entered the agreement
of the. managers, it should cancel its con
tract with the labor agent.
It is a sure thing that unless the Omaha !
cancels the contract within two days a
full-fledged rate war on second-class travel
will be waging, and the Omaha gives it out j
that it will stay by its contract and let the
other roads kick until they get tired, and it
don't see why this action should precipitate
a rate-cutting melee. There is but little
doubt expressed that all the roads have
been cutting rates, but it was done on the
sly. and they had not the backbone to
acknowledge it, as the Omaha did. It is
claimed that the rates cut by the Omaha to
local points affect rates west of the Mis
souri river, because the Omaha sells
through tickets to points west of Sioux City
over lines other than its own. The cut is
made between St. Paul and Sioux City,
and regular fare is charged from the latter
place to Western points; but a through
ticket, sold at these figures, of couse. cuts
The Minnesota & Northwestern people
are red headed, and have notified the com
missioner that 2 cents a mile would be their

that he has proof that the other lines have

itself in the association meeting, and the

for it, Kenyon prepared a quarter
s.teet hanger with "war" printed
at the head of it In flaming

the Burlington was dealing in first-class

not patched up, the Burlington would then

kee road, where they are obliged to put up
39. full second-class tare. When they get
to Chicago, if they are employed by Ar
mour, this money is returned to them and
Armour pays a small rate, geuerally
claimed to be one cent per mile, for their
transportation. This, of course, adds fuel
to the flame, as the other roads claim that
it is nothing less than a cutting of rates and
that the fact of Armour being interested in
the Milwaukee road does not entitle that
line to that trade.
Long Line* Millitant.
The Transcontinental lines are at logger
heads and refuse to be reconciled. An
effort has recently been made ti get a meet
ing of the managers of the various roads In
terested In the old Transcontinental associ
ation and the managers of the Canadian
Pacific railway, but the attempt will prob
ably fall to the ground without effect. The
object of the meeting would be to end tbe
present disastrous war on Pacific coast
rates and to effect a reorganization of the
association. The Canadian Pacific is
anxious to get all the business it can since
it runs through a new country that must be
populated Before it can expect to become a
profitable piece of property, and is ready
to enter any agreement, for at the same
rates the people bound for the
Pacific coast, would for convenience
sake, overlook this line and take a southern
road. The Canadian Pacific to catch the
travel must offer some extra inducements to
to the people. The Atchison, Topeka &
Santa Fe road will not attend the meeting
as there is a fight on between the Southern
Pacific line and the Pacific Mail Steamship
company, and until it is settled it will do no
good to organize an association as it would
be Impossible to maintain rates.
The Canadian Pacific is generally consid
ered to be in the field for the purpose of
fighting and it is not believed that it would
join a pool on pacific coast business under
The lines between Chicago and the Mis
souri river and St. Paul, interested In Pa
cific coast traffic, will hold a meeting in
Chicago next week, to take some steps
towards stepping the demoralization In rates
on California business, from the Chicago
territory. The Pacific Coast association
agreement cannot be carried out. because
some of the new lines between Chicago and j
St Paul are not parties to It. and the latter
are said to be operating with the St. Paul & I
Manitob and the Canadian Pacific on the
cut rates. If the new St. Paul lines refuse |
to join the Pacific Coast association, there i
is little bona of bringing about a restoration j
of rates to the Pacific coast from Chicago.
If they do consent, however, It is the inten
tion to charge arbitrary rates on such busi
ness between Chicago and the Missouri river
and Chicago and St. Paul.

Shrieks rang through the corridors of the
fourth floor of the fashionable boarding
house, and echoed down the elevator shaft
and stariways. There was a rush to room
No. 89. The door was burst open and the
hoarders poured in, although it was the
bridal chamber. On a lounge the young
wife of a day was lying, all disheveled,
drumming with her French heels on the
carpet and sending forth scream upon
scream from her lovely throat The hus
band, a small and elderly man with a beak
like an eagle's, cowered in a corner. He
was as pile as a corpse, and shook from the
top of his bald head to the ultimate toes of
his large feet.
Agitated ladies fell upon the bride, ripped
mysterious strings and jerked hidden but
tons from their fastenings. They chafed
her jeweled and shapely hands, and threw
water into her fair young face, regardless
of the consequences to the new mauve
wrapper with a Watteau pleat.
"What is it dear?"
"What has he done?"
"Did he beat you?"
"Why did you marry the villain?"
These were a few of the questions that
rattled upon her like a charge from a shot
The bride struggled to a sitting position,
and, glaring wildly at the corner where the
little man shrunk and shivered, pointed a
trembling finger at him.
"He deceived me — he— man!" she
"Yes! Yes! How. dear? How?"
"He said lie was worth half a million!"
She shrieked again,
"Veil!" roared the little man, goaded by
the stabs of dozens of indignant and loathing
eyes. "Veil, vot of it? She wouldn't hey
"He's only," sobbed the bride, "he's only
worth two hundred thousand!'
This by a chorus of twenty.
And the pauper husband returned cowed
to his corner, and observed in miserable
silence the practice of the art of bringing a
pure-souled and Buffering woman out of a
lit of hysterics without medical assistance.

WHY IS IT
That rheumatism and neuralgia are so
prevalent? This question has not been sat
isfactorily answered, but it is certain that
these diseases are not only the most painful
but among the most common, and some
member of nearly every family in the laud
is the victim of one of these dread torment
ors. Ladies seem to be peculiarly liable to
neuralgic attacks, which, in the form of
neuralgic headache, pain in the back, or
nervous pains are of constant occurrence.
Not until the discovery of Athlophoros
had any remedy been found for either rheu
matism, neuralgia or nervous headache, and
they were generally conceded to be incura
ble, but Athlophoros has been proved to be
not only a certain cure for these diseases,
in all their varied forms, but a safe remedy.
If in the use of Athlophoros. the bowels
are kept freely open, its success is certain,
and to ad this, Athlophoros pills are rec
ommended, which, while providing the
necessary cathartic, will be found to be a
valuable aid to the action of the medicine.
Athlophoros is no experiment it has been
tested and has proved its wonderful elri
The Athlophoros pills were originally
prepared as a remedy for use in connection
with Athlophoros. for rheumatism and neu- I
ralgia and kindred complaints. Used in I
connection with that remedy, they are a
certain cure lor either of these very com
_ .ii and distressing diseases. They have •
aisu been found to be an invaluable rem
edy for any and all diseases arising from
vitiated blood or general debility. They
are especially valuable for nervous debility,
blood po sonng. dyspepsia, distress after
eating, headache, constipation. loss of ap
petite, and all stomach or liver troubles.
For diseases of women they are invaluable.
These pills are perfectly harmless and may
be safely used by adults or children.
Testimonials of those who have been
cured will be sent free on application.
Every druggist should keep Athlophoros
and Athlophoros pills, but where they can- ,
not be bought of the druggist the Athlo
phoros Co., 113 Wall st. New York, will
send either (carriage paid) on receipt of
regular price, which is Si per bottle for
Athlophoros and 50c for pills.

It's this knowing just how to make the style of Cloth

are so many people that start out to buy a fur garment and make the
rounds of all the stores asking "What is your best „acqu3,4o inches

by parties who offer less grade goods and "guarantee them best
