Tho Burlington's July statement
was Issued Thursday, and the officials
of that road are pleased at the show

was considerably bettor than the most
sanguine officials had expected it
would be. The surplus available for
dividends showed nearly $-500,0000 in

month 'last year. The report shows
earnings to have been made in all de

the proportion of fixed charges, which
was largely brought about by the re

INTERESTING LEAGUE MEETING

From Saturday's Daily.
Tne business and social meeting of
the Epworth league, which was held
at the home of Miss Bit della Smith on
High school hill last evening, was one
of considerable more than ordinary in

very entertainingly of what he had

Mrs. Winslow was drawn up and

"As a token of the respect and love
which we all feel for our dear friend

who has recently been called from us,
we desire to express our deep sorrow
for the loss which we, as a League and
as individuals, have sustained in her

A necullar symptom of the disease Is

'rtquently these swellings, which are

noticed on the arms as well, or even
on the collar-bones. Black and blue

improper diet has rot yet been decid

dren who are fed on artificial food, yet
nursing Infants who have never had
anything but mother's milk sometimes
suffer, and others who have been fed
all their little lives by the bottle nev
er have the least sign of scurvy.
If the doctor Is called before the dia
base Is far advanced, the treatment is
usually satisfactory. It consists es
sentially in a change of diet, some
times even a change to artificial food,
if the child has hitherto been nursed
exclusively; but this change is some
thing that needs careful study, since it
will have peculiarities of its own in
almost every case. The addition of
?ome fruit juice especially that of or
anges, limes or grapes, to the new diet
is generally of great value, and some
times will effect a cure without other
modifications of the previous diet
A Drink for the Soldier.
One of the most frequent causes of
Buffering among soldiers who march
under a hot sun is intense thirst. Few
sensations are more distressing than
the parched and burning feeling that
attends this condition of things. Ex
periments and tests of various sorts
show that cold tea is one of the very
best beverages for thirsty soldiers.
The infusion Bhould not be st-ong
Just enough to be bright and refresh
ing. It Is, of course, made with ster
ilized water, and if supplied to the ar
my in moderation would do more to
keep up a standard of temperance than
almost anything that could be furnish
ed. Soldiers are told they must not
drink water when passing through the
enemy's country, or where tnere Is
danger of contamination. Naturally,
they resort to spirituous liquors, than
which nothing is more demoralizing.
A small quantity of tea satisfies and
refreshes, and is also, to some extent,
a stimulant. It is, in addition, what
housekeepers call "tasty." and leaves
a pleasant feeling in the mouth and
throat. Army officers almost always
look with concern upon anything that
Interferes with a plentiful supply of
excellent drinking water. In camp
and ia places where depots of supplies
are easny reached, cold tea can be fur
nished In quantity, especially if there
Is an opportunity for distilling or boil
ing water. The former is preferable
if the supply is exceedingly bad. If
it Is only tolerable, boiling answers
very well. Persons who are in the
habit of using It acquire a decided
taste for boiled water, greatly prefer
ring it to that which is uncooked.
