Seeing as we do the many Hoes in tl country grouped into large syMems whose ownership will no doubt rein -m stable in years to come, permanence 01 employment and stability of position is easy to be guar anteed and the corporations can now bet ter secure their own rights and strengthen themselves against the encroachments of ihe public by drawing their employes more closely to them, showing that pater nal care and solicitude for them which lend to establish good feeling and comrau nity of interest. Kelief associations under the guidance of the companies will do this Thev arc flourishing on the Baltimore & Onio aud the Pennsylvania railroads. The organi zations on those roads may be taken as the type of what other companies shoiil i do. Un the fcrmer, the scheme originated with the elder Garrett nearly ten vears ago. At its organization ail employes could joio without regard to age. After a short period these over forty-five years of age and those who could not pass a medical examina tion were not allowed to join. All persons employed regularly by the company are rt quired to pis a medical examination, must be under iorty-hve years of ag and must join the relief association. Thud it will be seen that uearly all their employes are members. The compulsory feature looks to an outsider like a hardship, but the obligation is on him only who seeks em ployment. Ihe employees are divided into classes hazardous and non-hazardous: and these two classes are divided into five others who pay'into a fund certain fixed sums each mouth, according to the amount of wrges regularly r ceiveu. isenents are n.ua m weekly iudtmities im cases of fciekneas and disablements and a cross sum to the brne- Tl cording to the amount contributtd. Free medical aud suigical attendance is given; hcspitals are established; physicians are appointed at convenient pornis on the line. Tuc company has contributed $100,000, the interest on which at six per cent goes into the fund yearly. It also puts $25,000 per year into a superannuation fuud. A building loan association has also been formed, which has become quite popular. Therr are many other liberal features, of which limited space will not permit an enumeration. The PenLsylvania Bailroad company has also adopted a system of relief similar to that of the Baltimore & Ohio, but not so extensive. It is entirely voluntary and numbers over 20.000. It rapidly increases in popularity as its benefits become more appreciated. In both companies the employees are rapidly leaving the local benevolent as sociations ; they find they can insure them selves with the aid of a solvent and power ful company for much less money than in the thousand and one local lodges whose solvency depends on the honesty of a sec retary or s treasurer. Other systems of relief, but to a minor extent, have been adopted by railway com panies notably tree hospital service for the sick aud disabled upon the Snta Fe and Missouri Pacific, all of which ma terially lesson the number of claims for damages and subsequent costly trials and judgments in the courts.

The resignation of Assistant Eugineer Clements, of the Missouri Pacific, published exclusively in the Globe Democrat yester day was a leading topi in railroad circles. It was the general impression that the Gould management had iot one of its most valuable officials, but that no excep tions could be made iu favor of one euv ! ploy6 with regard to an increase of salary. lue management is committed this year to a policy of rigid retrenchment, and the 10 per cent reduction frm vice president to the S100 clerk is siill in effect Globe Democrat. The approaching election at ParsoDS, Kan., for offictrs of the M , K. & T., has a vital interest in more than one war. He- side the question whether or not that road will remain in the clutches ot Gould, it is said on the authority of President Martin- sen, that the stockholders have decided to build from some point to be selected on the main line, branches to St. Louis and Kansas City. If the intelligent reader will inspect the country all alonj; the M., K. &. T., it will be found that Clinton is the most feasible point for th se diverging routes. Clinton Democrat.

A rumor was received here this morning that the stage runniug between VVadoz and Wal ker on the southern border of Oklahoma nnd on the bank of the Canadian river had Wen held up and robbed late Thursday night. The driver jumped into the river af ter bein shot thiough the arm, and reached the opposite bank nearly unconscious. He walked to Walnut crtek and stated that his passengers, consisting of two men and a boy, were in the hands of the robbers. The coach was burned. The rumor has not been verified. It reached this city from the Atoka coal mine on the Missouri, Kansas & Texas railroad, 'SELF-RELIANCE' JbllONT. TO THE What he says on an Important Subject. Several days ago we published a letter from Experience," upon a sub ject which is attracting considerable attention, and we have since received a similar communicationfrom another which we publisu m full: To the liiDiTOE: A short time ago noticed in your columns a letter signed "Experience," which contained comments upon a sul ject which is of snerai importarce. At first I was inclined to regard the letter referred to as a clever advertising scheme of Messrs, H. H. Warner & Co., to at tract notice to their well-known War ner Sjfe Cure, which i3, it is admitt ed, of the greatest value and merit, but upon more mature consideration I am inclined to believe that the let ter is a genuine expression from a well informed individual, who is not afraid to giapple with a question ;which should receive greater attention. It is daily becoming more apparent that there is something radically wrong in the manner in which disease is being treated by those whose pro fession it is to heal the sick. A man is taken ill, and a physician is called in. "Only a slight nervous disorder," remarks the physician. The slight nervous disorder, however, refuses to be controlled, and in a short time the physician ominously remarks that the patient is suffering from consumption. Things go on for a while until the pa tient is afflicted with what the physi cian calls "a series of complicated disorders." Treated for first one thing and then another dosed with all sorts of vile concoctions the patient finally succumbs, and then for the first time it is learned that the real cause of suffering and death wa3 disease of the kidneys, which manifested itself in various other disorders all of which could have been promptly cured had a timely use been made of War ner's Safe Cure, which is the most im portant discovery made in couneciion with scientific progress in recent years. The reference made by "Experience" to the Robinson poisoniug cases, where no less than seven members of one family died within five years from the effects of arsenical poisoning with out attoacting the attention of skilled physicians, who were in attendance, to the real bausr, but who issued death certificates for pneumonia, ty phoid fever, bowel disease etc., is a startling discovery of the ignorance which prevails among those whose duty it ss to definitely detect and treat the true eause of disease. I quite agree with "Experience" in the opinion that, after all, those who take matters of health in their own hands and place their reliance upon a a well-known remedv which is time tested and known to be of benefit are better off than those who trust them selves in experimental and ignorant hauds Self Reliance. 1XOKSES STOLEN. Earnest Dix, received 'a letter from his father-in-law, Al Smith, yesterday who is now on the borders of the Okla homa country, saying that a night or two ago had four borees stolen. A large number of people were camped in that country, awaiting the opening of the territory, and horse stealing was almost a mshtlv occurrence. Mr. SSinith was formerly city marshal! of - Sedalia.
