NOT GIVE UP Though Sick and Suffering; At Last Found Help in Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegeta ble Compound. Richmond, Pa. “ When I started taking Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable B Compound I was in a dreadfully rundown state of health, had internal trou bles, and was so ex tremely nervous and prostrated that if I had given in to my feelings I would have been in bed. As it was I had hardly strength at times to be on my feet and what I did do was by a great effort. I could not sleep at night and of course felt very bad in the morning, and had a steady headache. “After taking the second bottle I no ticed that the headache was not so bad, l rested better, and my nerves were stronger. I continued its use until it made a new woman of me, and now I can hardly realize that I am able to do so much as I do. Whenever I know any woman in need of a good medicine I highly praise Lydia E. Pinkham’s Veg etable CJompound.” Mrs. Frank Clark, §146 N. Tulip St., Richmond,Pa.

Spring Suit in Belgian Blue Serge It ' \ 1 jjji ‘ A ‘ ' W’/A- a A plain, smart suit, distinctly youth ful in suggestion and depending upon color and cut for successful style, is shown in the illustration given here. As to the lines on which it is cut, the skirt belongs to the straight silhou ette type which, in spite of the suc cess of the flared variety, has many followers. Caillot and Jenny of Paris are authority enough for its vogue, if one cannot be satisfied without such assurance. It is full, but it is straight, a little longer than ankle length, and plain. The overlapped seam at the front is allowed a few buttons, like those on the jacket, set in groups of three. The skirt fits smoothly about the hips and has a plain finish at the top. The crisp little coat consists of a plain body (a little short waisted) and a skirt which flares enough to indulge in a tentative ripple or two about the bottom. Buttons and machine stitch ing finish it. There is a square turn over collar of the serge at the back. A second collar and a belt, in the most vivid military red, are made of thin suede leather. The belt is run through narrow straps of the serge Miss Nell Craig Approves New Fashions Hob That keenness and quickness of ap prehension which makes the success of the bright, particular “movie” star before the inexorable camera lends W’eight to the importance of her judg ment in the matter of clothes. Here is a picture of Miss Nell Craig, taken unawares, in a pretty new spring gowm, with hat and accessories that meet with her approval among the new modes. The bodice and tunic of hem stitched chiffon are noticeably simple, and the underbodice, or corset cover, of crepe de chine, is quite the reverse of simple, being a pretty combination of the silk with wide shadow lace and hemstitching used in setting it together and as a decoration. The bod ice is very plain, has a high convert ible collar w’orn open at the throat, but w’ired to keep it upstanding at the back and sides. This carefully care less management of the collar is worth a second thought, and then some more thought. The suspender-girdle of veivet rib bon makes a graceful and easy solu tion to the problem of the waist line, which is solved in so great a variety of ways in the new’ fashions. The girdle is of wide ribbon—and no limit is set as to its width—with the sus penders of narrower ribbon. The hat is likely to awaken the en thusiasm of many other youthful and pretty wearers, for it is a return to the big, picturesque and gracious type that delights the eye of the artist. It is a “cartwheel” model with broad stitched to the coat at each side, and fastens with a silver buckle at the front. A second collar and belt, or even a third, may be acquired byway of ringing changes on a suit in which such striking color contrasts are fea tured. A collar and belt of black and white checkerboard ribbon, or a set in one of the natural leather shades, are to be recommended. Worn with the suit, when the red belt and collar are brought into requi sition, is a hat which is obliged to keep pace with them. It is of blue straw, matching the dress in color, with band and darts of bright red like that in the accessories of the suit. Hardly anything else in a hat would do except one of those sailors in black and white checkerboard silk which are trimmed with black velvet ribbon and a cluster or two of cher ries. It is not often that a suit so simply constructed achieves distinction by the mere management of color, and still less often that a suit admits of “shad ing” by change of accessories that does not rob it of its smart style. brim of black taffeta faced with black silk-straw braid, and has a soft crown and a collar of taffeta. Byway of adornment it is provided with a glo rious full-blown red rose, matching it in generous proportions, and long ties or streamers of black velvet rib bon. The proof of the pudding is in the tasting, and the proof of the styles is in the wearing. These are new modes approved by a practiced and critical eye. JULIA BOTTOMLEY. When Hoop Skirts Were Worn. The first modern hoop skirt —repre- senting a costume which the modistes are now’ threatening to revive—was the invention of Joseph Thomas, who was born in Paris 88 years ago, and who died in Hoboken a few years since. The hoop skirt of Thomas’ contrivance was popular from 1850 to 1870, when it began to decline. The monstrosity of cumbrous skirts, held out by hoops, was carried to such a point that the fair sex b«gan to as sume the proportions of balloons. Probably no other style of feminine attire was so unsightly and ridicu lous as this, vet it enjoyed a tremen dous vogue. The “hoops” of Joseph Thomas constituted a revival of the crinoline or farthingales of the time of Queen Elizabeth, w hen women wore hoop-like petticoats made of whale bone. The hoop skirt was made the cause of many accidents and loss of life occasioned by coming In contact with fire or machinery THE WINSLOW MAIL VETERAN OF THE RAIL UTICA CLAIMS OLDEST MEMBER OF ORGANIZATION. Charter Member of Order That Was Formed in 1863 Is M. J. Carroll —Now Has Retired From Active Service. Utica's position as an important railroad center makes it especially fortunate in being able to number many of these skillful and daring drivers of the iron horse among its citizens. Utica division. No. 14, Brotherhood of Locomotive En gineers, is one of the most popular and progressive in the state and among its members are many who have made records that stand unsur passed in the history of railroading in this country, says the Utica Globe. Added distinction is also due the Utica division in the fact that it claims to have the oldest member of the organization in the United States, Canada or Mexico. This vet eran of the rails is M. J. Carroll of 312 South street. When. division No. 14 was i formed, September 14, 1863, Mr. Carroll was one of its charter M. J. Carroll. members and through all the years his interest in the welfare of the or der has been second to none. When in a reminiscent mood Mr. Carroll can tell stories of railroading that are a revelation to the engineers of modern days. He was born in Manheim, Herkimer county, in 1837, and came of a family of railroad men, his father and his four brothers fol lowing that occupation. In 1852, when he was fifteen years old, he went to Little Falls and obtained employment as water boy for a gang of trackmen under William A. Everts, where he remained for one summer The follow ing year he worked on the section under his father, who was track boss at East Creek. Under the consolida tion of divisions, in 1854, when he was seventeen years old, Mr. Carroll se cured a position as fireman on a work train which covered the territory be tween Albany and Syracuse. The work was hard for a boy, but he went at it with a will and promotion soon came, when, after six months, he was called to Utica and given the posi tion as fireman on a freight train run ning between this city and Syracuse. He was too good a fireman to remain long in that position and within a few months he was firing on a passen ger train on the Syracuse division, with Isaac Vrooman as engineer. By this time he was getting used to being promoted, so he was not sur prised when, on September 1, 1857, he was given a position as freight engi neer. He continued to hold this for nine years and was then advanced to passenger engineer and had a run from Utica to Syracuse, until the ex- j tension of the division to Albany. At this time double crews were put on passenger engines and Mr. Carroll was mated w r ith M. Rickard and they ran passenger trains between Albany and Syracuse for 12 years. Mr. Rick ard was then elected railroad com missioner and for the next five years Mr. Carrofl had Anthony Myers as his running mate. At the expiration of that time the rule was adopted re quiring engineers to undergo a phys ical examination, the men going in pairs to New- York, as they could be spared. As a result Mr. Carroll was taken off the road and given a posi tion as driver of an engine in the Utica yards, where he continued until he reached the age limit of seventy years, ivhen he retired. During all his railroad career ’Mr. Carroll had but one serious accident and that was at Verona, when his en gine ran into a switch that had been blocked with ties, supposedly by per sons desiring to wreck and rob the train. The engine was derailed and Mr. Carroll's brother, Charles B. Car roll, now a resident of John street, who was firing, was slightly injured. Mr. Carroll has represented division No. 14, B. of L. E.. at conventions at Atlanta, Ga., and at Chicago and for 26 years he had charge of the insur ance of the local division and of the first assistant engineers. For many years he was secretary of his division and filled the office with honor to him self and to the organization. One of his choicest possessions is the badge of the order, which is in the form of a scroll, inclosing a locomotive, with a shield pendant, and bearing the fol lowing inscription: “Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. Honorary Member. G. I. D.” SHOULD PROTECT THE CARS Buffalo Judge Criticizes Railroads For What He Considers Their Lax Methods. George E. Judge, judge of the ju venile court in Buffalo, contributes to the American City Magazine a paper on the unprotected condition of rail road yards as a contributory cause of juvenile delinquency. Thirty per cent of the boys appearing in this court last year were charged with offenses against railroad property. They were duly punished, but the judge wants to know why the railroad should not be punished also for allowing their yards to remain open with practically free access to a multitude of freight cars, thus placing temptation in the way of children. In Buffalo the railroads run through the poorer part of the city. There are 725 miles of railroad yard tracks. They are generally full of freight cars loaded with all sorts of merchandise. Cars of coal, and such things as flat cars haul, are open. The box cars are protected by a strip of tin an inch wide, which a child of eight years can break. All are guarded by a few night watchmen One hundred thousand Polish people live where these rail road yards are. They are mostly poor and all have large families (12 to 14). The lather is generally a laborer, mak ing two dollars a day. “Can you im agine,” says the judge, “what such families would do to a car loaded with shoes standing just outside its back yard in winter?” What they do do constitutes 30 per cent of the cases in the judge’s court. He demands that the railroads remove this potent cause of temptation which unprotected cars of freight produce. From coal to mer chandise of all kinds the pilfering goes on and breeds criminals. The judge wants the railroads to fence their yards and thus do their part to re move temptation which it is not diffi cult to feel is unjust to poor people driven by hard necessity. HOLDS TRACK RAILS IN PLACE New Railroad Tie, It Is Believed, Will Be Eagerly Taken Up By Line Builders. One of the principal objects of the inventor is to provide means adapted to be carried by a cross-tie, for se curing the track rails in place on the tie. He provides rail fastening means adapted for use with lengths of worn out rails whereby the latter may be utilized as cross ties. He also pro vides in combination with a rail length means for engaging the base flanges of the track rail, and means n " • "l Railroad Tie. for adjusting the rail engaging means both longitudinally and vertically whereby to accommodate rails of vari ous dimensions.—Scientific American. Railroad Chief at Throttle. Because of the illness of the regu lar engineer on the Anthony and Northern railroad, O. P. Byers of Hutchinson, president of the line, donned overalls, climbed into the cab, and took the regular train out of Pratt on time. He made the regular “run” today and this evening was the engineer on a special train. A concert by the Indian Band at Pratt is the cause of an excursion from Byers, the new town at the end of the line, sixteen miles from Pratt. Seventy-five farmers and their wives went to hear that concert and they wanted to be back home tonight. Mr. Byers returned to the engineer's cab after a quarter of a century’s ab sence. As he is the “whole railroad” he gave his own orders, then climbed into the cab and performed the work. —Hutchinson (Kan.) Dispatch to Philadelphia Inquirer. Kiln Car. The car has a movable stake con nected by links with a stake secured to the body of the car, one of the car wheels being journaled to a lever ful crumed to the car body, and this lever engaging a member at the bottom of the movable stake, so that the w 7 eight of the material on the body will serve to move the body down relatively to the lever, thereby moving the movable stake relatively to the stake secured to the body, for pressing the lumber against another stake. Scientific American. Must Consider Passengers. The supreme court of Alabama de cides in Louisville and Nashville Rail road company vs. Fuqua that a rail road company in selling a ticket for a particular train to a flag station is bound to take notice of the passen ger’s desire to stop there and is liable for carrying him past, although the conductor has not had time to reach him before the train arrives at the station, in the absence of a rule re quiring the passenger to notify the conductor of his desire to stop.
