the doctors fairly gave me up, and I de
spaired of ever getting well again.
" I noticed your advertisement and the
splendid testimonials given by people
who had been cured by Peruna, and de
termined to try a bottle. I felt but little
better, but used a second and a third
bottle and kept on improving slowly.
"It took six bottles to care me, but
they were worth a king's ransom to
me. I talk Peruna to all my friends

FOR STRONG CARS
Interstate Commerce Commis
sion Preparing a Bill . to
Present to Congress.
GUABDS SAFETY OF THE PUBLIC
Provides for Steel Frames and Non
Telescopable Devices for
Under the supervision of the inter
state commission a bill is being pre
pared which, if it becomes a law, will
compel railroad companies to build
stronger coaches and other passenger
cars, with the exception of sleepers.
The bill will be introduced by Repre
sentative Esch, of Wisconsin, and will
provide that all coaches and cars for
passenger service shall be construct
ed with steel sleepers and steel sills.
The American Railway association
has been asked to submit details
which would be practical from a rail
rond standpoint, and every care is
taken to have the measure such as
will effect greater safety in construc
tion. Before beginning the draft of
the bill Representative Esch made a
long investigation, going thoroughly
into the history of car construction.
He conferred also with government
officials, who expressed the opinion
that something should be done to pre
vent the further construction of light
railway coaches which either tele
scope or break like egg shells in the
event of a wreck, thereby causing a
large death and casualty rate.
I.4MQO From MleepnrB.
It is asserted that the immunity
from death and injury which passen
gers in sleeping cars enjoy is largely
due to the steel underframe construc
tion, nnd it is understood that tho
construction of the present day sleep
ing car will be taken as a standard.
In this event all day coaches, smok
ing cars, buffet cars, chair and parlor
cars will have to bo built with exten
sion steel beams and possibly be pro
vided with steel platforms and non
In view of the unusual number of
lives sacrificed in railway wrecks the
last year, the urgent reed of some
such legislation is appreciated. At
the same time the bill will undoubt
edly give the railroad a reasonable
length of time with which to eourply
with the provisions of the measure.
This time will be sufficient to permit
of nil old equipment wearing out. but
it will also provide that all cars to be
constructed after the passage of the
measure shall be of the required stand
ard. It is the purpose to place the
enforcement of the measure in the
han:ls of the interstate commission,
as Is the case with the enforcement
of the automatic coupler and other
measures requiring the use of safety
