Silver City, N. M., March 17. Mrs,
James M. Ross, who resides on Whis
key Greek about four miles east of
this city, was painfully injured in
runaway accident last Sunday after
noon. In company with a man namei
Mendoza, who was driving for her,
she was on her way to this city to
see her daughter, Mrs. J. H. Kelly.
While yet about two miles out of
town they met a motorcycle coming
from the opposite direction, where
upon the team became frightened and
ran away, throwing out both occu
pants of the vehicle. In falling, Mrs
Ross struck her head against a rock
sustaining quite a gash above the eyes
as well as scalp wound. As the team
did not run far, Mr. Mendoza soon got
it back to the scene of the1 accident
when Mrs. "Ross again got into the
buggy and resumed her journey. They
had not gone far, however, before they
encountered a rapidly moving automo
bile. Again the team became frighten
ed, but the occupants of the vehicle
Jumped out before It became unman
ageable. Hardly had their feet struck
the ground when the animals started
off at a terrific pace, smashing things
up generally.
Mrs. Ross was brought to her daugh

Milllken attended her injuries. At
latest reports she was resting easy,
and It is not though that her wounds
will prove as serious as at first anti
For the! time being the financial out
look contains many elements of un
certainty. Both the eastern and west
ern roads have decided to abide by
the commissioners recommendations
and to withdraw a'l advanced rate
schedules which are subject to th?
commission's ruling, says the Railwav
World. Under the circumstances it
may be expected that a policy of thd
most rigid economy will be adopted,
and this is apparently the view which
is being taken at present by leading
railroad men and bankers. What ef
fect this will have upou the steel in
dustry and upon the railways supply
business is difficult to predict, but
business activities may be expected
to be governed by unusual conserva
tism for some time to come.
While a number of roads assert
that the improvements already
planned for will be carried out, there
are many Indications that retrench
ment has already set in and this may
eventually lead to a considerable re
duction in the employment of labor,
The forthcoming extra session of con
gress, in which the democrats will be

al uncertainty Into the situation and
financial interests may not be ex
pected to feel greatly reassured until
this session is out of the way and
until the supreme court has rendered
its decision in the important trust
cases now pending.
There is no doubt that the uncom
promising attitude of the Interstate
commerce commission has cast a re
vere gloom over the entire railway
industry which it is hoped may be
somewhat dispelled by future devel
opments. At the present, however,
railroad offlcia's have never been in
a more cautious or conservative mood
and in general, little in the way ef
expenditures may be expected from
them except those which are abso
lutely necessary to keep their pro
perties maintained at their present
standard. As for improvements ana
new construction work, it is generally
felt that under existing conditions
comparatively little immediate wori
along these lines will be attempted

Rome, March 17. The .Kingdom of
Italy looked backward half a century
today and bowed low to the states
men and soldiers whose patriotic ef
forts brought about the Turin de
laratlon of March 17, 1861, when
united Italy came into being and Vic
tor Emmanuel was designated as the
ruler of the new kingdom. It is the
semi-centennial anniversary of this
event 'that Italy is preparing to cele
brate this summer on a grand scale.
Beginning in the early summer and
continuing until the late autumn
there are to be an almost constant
succession of fetes and patriotic dem
onstrations from Sicily to the Alps.
The features of international interest
will be the great expositions in Rome
and Turin.
The movement which led to the
unification of Italy had its beginning
about the mldd'e of the last century.
At that time Victor Emmanuel II., e.
most liberal and statesmanlike mon
arch, occupied the throne of Sardinia,
His great minister. Count Cavour, was
an ardent believer In Italian unifica
tion. Inspired by Gariba'di, Mazzi, Ca
vour and other eminent and able pa
triots of the time, Victor Emmanuel
joined France in a successful war
with Austria for the . liberation of
northern Italy, and then began to ex
tend the kingdom of Sardinia.
Fifty years ago today came the
declaration of Turin, wfhen , Victor
Emmanuel assumed the title of king
of Italy. During the ensuing ten years
province after .province united with
the new kingdom of Italy, and finally
in 1870, after a sharp struggle with
the Pope, supported by France, Victor
Emmanuel annexed the papal states,

Catarrh, is not merely an affection
of the mucous membranes; it is a
deep-seated blood disease in which the
entire circulation and greater part of
the system are involved. It is more
commonly manifested . in . the head,
nose and throat, because of the sensi
tive nature of these membranes, and
also because they are more easily
readied by irritating influences from
the outside. The symptoms of Ca
tarrh, such as a tight feeling in the
head, nose stopped up, throat clogged
and dry, hacking cough, etc., show
that the tiny blood vessels of the mu
cous membranes are badly congested
and inflamed from the impurities in
the circulation. To cure Catarrh per
manently the blood must be purified
and the system cleansed of all un
healthy matter. Nothing equals
S. S. S, for this purpose. It attacks
the disease at its
head, goes down
to the bottom of
the trouble and
makes a complete
and lasting cure
the blood. Then
the inflamed
membranes begin
to heal, the head is cleared, breathing
becomes natural and easy, the throat
is no longer clogged, and eyery un
pleasant symptom of the disease dis
appears. S. S. S. is the greatest of all
blood purifiers, and for this reason is
the most certain cure for Catarrh.
