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

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
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
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
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

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

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.”
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.
New Railroad Tie, It Is Believed, Will
Be Eagerly Taken Up By

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

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.
