Among Amerlran women allied liy ! tl.'s of blood to Kngllsh suffragists Ih .Mrs. Ulrluinl Hraekonbuiy of Iienver, She has lately reeclveil a -letter from lie i' ulster, Miss Kfllo ("llbbs, who him taken jiart In tin1 demonstrations of London suffragists, und like them shared the hospitalities of a london Jail. MIps (ilhbs related her exper ience In an incarceration of live weeks because of her participation In the ef forts to enter tin.' house of commons, says the Springfield Republican. Aft it' simply stating Hint they strove to get In, and the police kept them back but without uny violenceshe notes Hint they with arrested. The next day they appeared at he police court and were sent to Jail. Hne says. We were locked up In separate cells, badly lighted, very cold and mom than dreary. I grew dreadfully chil ly, and the thirty-eight days looming before me seemed more like thirty eight years. Presently the door was pushed open and u loaf of bread, six ounces In weight, and a tin-of cocoa with gren.se flakes lloatlng on the top were thrust Inside. My first prison meull The bread was bitter and harsh and I could not get much down. The prison clothes were the, follow ing: A' vest enormously wide, of the mars, sf flannel: knickers, ditto; flan nel pettle at, tremendously full and heavy; a Itnscy-woo'lscy petticoat; a green serge skirt of truly frightful shnpe; bodice ditto, with one button at the neck and kept In place at the waist by n coa.se lilue and white check apron; stocking.-, enormous In the foot and short In the leg; shoes Indescrib ably ghastly, and, lastly, a little white cap tied under the chin with strings.. The first night was fairly awful. Everything felt . so hard and smelt so horrid that It was appalling to think what a long time there was ahead. Here Is the program of our days: l'p at 5:45; roll up bed and covers and place them neatly on shelf; put up bed boards against wall; let out of your cell to get fresh water and take In pall and scrubbing brush formorn Ing clean; 7 o'clock, hreakfaat, six ounces of brown bread, one pint hot milk and a piece of butter which with care lasts for three meals; 8:15, chapel, a l"ng procession through cor ridors, with wardresses glaring at you every few yards. All the suffragettes sat apart from the other prisoners In a wing of the chancel. So much of the letter was published in the Denver News and it Is sutfl- jcient. The story is always the same, but the folly of thp methods of Eng lish authorities, always strikes one afresh. 1'nd food, bad lodging and clothing, Ingeniously selected to give the crcntest discomfort, are so many blunders. They cause disgust, but never cause compliance. Tt Is one of the grossest mistakes to create the feeling nf being abused. One has only to rend of the reception of suffrngettos relensed after Impris onment for breaking Mr. Asqulth's windows. Crowds filled the streets, many of them, of course, woman suf- fi-nrlxis. but many also who showed the feeling that still strongly exists I that women, simply because they are I women, deserve respectful and ponsld I ernle treatment. hilo there wns some extravagance ' of action, such as women unloosing ! the horses from a carriage in wnicn ! some of the released prisoners were i sitting, nnd drawing It themselves, the ; crowd as a mass treated the occasion ' ns s trlumnh. Now. it is very short-sighted for tho powers that be to give occasion for Kiieh exhibitions of feelinirs. It makes martyrs of those Just released, and so i Invites repetitions of the occasion of their punishment, while It awakes and ! strengthens the sympathies of the public. ! The aged cotnmnnder-ln-chlef of the Salvation army, (Icneral' Booth, 'addressed a message to the army on the eve of his departure for South Africa. The world In general has long been aware of his sentiments re canling women, but lie thought It best to make Ihls personal stntement that none of his followers slfhuld fall to understand Ills altitude. Oiiernl I tooth said. In part: My feelings and 'opinions with re sped to woman generally are known throughout the world. My standard on this subject is ever before you, and .1 want the entire army to embrace It. Klrst and foremost, I Insist on cept tills truth. Nay, mote, I would have us all stand to it and show it forth to the world by our own treat ment of the women comrades. Above all, let us (each 11 both In theory and in practice to the young people, around us, Mrs. Humphrey Ward, who has everything she wishes, fame, friends, position and money, and whose eyes, turned only on her own merits, se nothing further, says of Knglish suf fraglstH: "Unless those who hold that the success of the woman suflrags wovcnient would bring disaster upon Kngland are prepared ti take Imme diate and effective action, judgment may go by default nnd our country drift toward u momentous revolution, both social and political, before It has realized the dangers Involved." , Perhaps tho lady Is unduly ularm ed.

AILROAD CHANGES millions Being Spent lor Transportation Improve-' monts in the East. 0CAL ELECTRIFICATION ew Haven lUillrood Speiiillnir Mora In That Way Tlw'n Any Other Hoiid In the Country. The current number of American ln istrles has the following article on llrond Improvements In this vicinity id in the last generally that will he great Interest locally: This story would be Incomplete wlth tt a review of the aggressive work bo g carried on by the New York, New aveti & Hartford railway, for that nid Is accomplishing great results In ie perfection of lis system, for the tent, of trackage the New York. New n-eii and Hart ford is probably ex tiditiK more money for clecti'lllcatlnn mil any other line in the United in Irs. OH the Hnrletu River bianc.b, from lrletn river to New llo.'helle, tills iinpany Is expending $7,tnl.M1 in d lopittir the road frmn a two-track ie to Kix tracka. The thlrtl-ruil syulein Is being Installed, and to give some Iden as to the relative costs It may lie staled that of tho above sum, $2,2M1,OnO goes Into the electrical equipment and ,U.K2r,X!il for roadway. In addition to Ihls work tho Provi dence Terminal company Is building a double track connecting line from the main line stntion at Providence, It. I., under tho river to Kast Providence - '2.70 miles which Includes a tunnel un der the city 6,000 feet long. Through the city of "ew Haven the company Is widening Its roadbed to accommodate, four tracks Instead of two as at pres ent. This very costly work extends over a distance of l.fis tulles. Still another large Improvement that. Is under way Is the transfer of the company's tracks from the east side of the Connecticut river to the west side, together with n new line from WHt-chnuHu Point north ward to Pprlnglleld for I? mil's. A new bridge over the Connect lent river Is un der way at Rprlhgllehl which will great ly facilitate the handling of congested trnfllc In tills thickly populated section of the country. Bide by side with the development of the Pennsylvania, the Now York Cen tral and Ivfle, the Lackswuiiiiu has planned for a -big stride fur ward In this age of greater Improved lni(!!e facili ties. Within the next few yens nearly every great rn'lroad will have followed the example of the systems licioin iM scribed If they life to hold their own In the transportation of passengers and I'telcht. The most Important of the Lacka wanna now under way Is the elimina tion wf circuitous luitlus unii Bleep grades. For Ihls work the ' road has planned for the expenditure of about $14,000,000, the larger pari of which will he applied in the construction of vvhui. is known as the Lackawanna cut-off. The cut orr helwcen Lake Hopaicoim and i l'ateford. Pa,, three tulles east of thi pelawfire Water Cap, nuieks a sav ing iif eleven miles and thus reduces I lie distance between New York anil Itttl'fnlo to an even 4(111 miles. The t-esull of tho work to he done In .Morris, Sus sex and Warren counties of New Jer sey anil Northampton county, Penn sylvania, will give to the Lackawanna a stretch of 2:1 miles of absolutely straight nlr line I rack. Seventy con crete bridges and viaducts are Includ ed In this work, together with an em liiinkmeul two and one-half miles long with an average height of !lo feel, prob ably the largest work of Us kind in the world. Home Idea as to the magnitude of this (III may be gained from Its cubic measurement in that nearly 7, OiKi.nOii yards of earth and stone are re iiulieil. At Andover the plans call for an excavation one half tulle long and 1112 feel deep, through a bed of solid granite in which that section abounds. The cut off In Its entirety Involves tin- excavation of ll.iiiin.ooo cubic yards of earth ami liio.Onii.OilO cubic yards of rock will tills and embankments re iuirlng i:t,onij,ooo cubic yards of 11111-Ici-lal. In other words, the cut-off culminates all tunnels, grade crossings and LStlti degrees of track curvature, besides re ducing lo ;i minimum numerous heavy grades. II Ih the prevailing spirit of die Liickaw anuu mtuiuijeiiiem to Hi tit bring the entire system up to a high degree of perfection in road bed construction, as the contlnti'-d success of tills com pany dun to Ihe geographical course of Its lines Is dependent on elllelenl freight transportation service. With Hip Increase of business resulting from' extensive Improvements now under way much may he. expected In the de velopment of this highly concent rated railroad In the years to come . In the foregoing paragraphs the mads of the north have been under discussion, yet the railways of the south afford much room for Improve ment, and without delay, If they are to he equipped to handle the volum inous amount of freight and passenger traffic that promises to result In the Industrial upbuilding that promises to come. No other road In the world has play ed so prominent a. part. In the history of railroads as has the.

I Tlie new Ciilon station at Washing ton, 1). c, which is Jointly owned iiy the H. A O, and the Pennsylvania rail roads Is an example of the policy of the Baltimore and ( Hiio of today. The greatest drawback of the roads of the far south is the faci that the majority of their lines are single track. Here Is where millions are being spent, and It is unite .safe to predict that ten years hence ihe single tin. -It 10.1,1 will have disappeared entirely from th main lines of nil the big systems. From the standpoint of dollars and cents the Soutln 111 railway Is le-idlna in Ihe Improvement, of its trackage. Its equipment und Its rolling slock. The panic of the past year has delayed th vast amount of improvement work ilia Is being done, nnd when money hu conies easj again this road will push Its millions Into facilities for taking care of some of the tralllc needs of ihe south, Physicians have hi en In the h.ildt of laugh In;; at the it 1 , 1 1 1 -1 1 ensl 111 of burning sugar In slc rooms as a ills, lute, I n 11 1 .

Every olhcer and soldier should hold to It that woman Is as Important, as valuable, us cnpa- Ide and as necessary to the progress and happiness of the world as mini. I'lifortuniitely a large number of peo ple of every class think otherwise. They still cling to tho notion of by gone ages that, as a being, woman Is Inferior to num. To many she is little more than a plaything for their leisure hours. To others she is like a piece of properly, a slave in everything but name. Oft times she is treated with less consideration as to' health nnd comfort than the horses that run in omnibuses or beasts that are fatten ing for slit tighter. Now, the Salvation army bus done and Is doing something to combat these hideous and heathen notions. I do not say that- every individual fac ulty in woman is eipial to the corre sponding faculty In man, any more than I would say that, each particular capacity possessed by man is equal to the sit tut' in woman. They differ both In character and degree, Hut where one Is weaker II10 oilier Is stronger, Kor example, in the power of will, Mud in tlie possession of physical force, the man will he often found to excel the woman.
