is tho demand j it at present for ail

long connected wilh ono of the larg

is especially interesting, says the
Railroad Gazette. He pays tbat par
ticular company now Das orders that
will keep its plant running to the full
capacity until next April, and it is
safe to assume tbat ether builders are
similarly fixed. Railroads placing or
ders now cannot get deliveries much

also stated tbat this is the first time

to accept all of the business tbat

THE MADSTONE SELDOM FAILS
Woaderfol Pre pert lea Claimed for a
From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
There la In the house ot Mrs. H. R.
Beeba of 73 Dunlap street, Memphis.
Tenn.. a wonderful madstone, which
tor 75 years has enjoyed the reputa
tion of performing wonderful cures
of hydrophobia. Mrs. John Shelton.
the sister of Mru. Beebe. is the owner
of the stone. It was willed to her
by her father, a minister in the Chris
tian church, to whom it was presented
by a poor German woman In his par
ish. The pastor made good use of it
for more than half a century. In all
those years only two persons treated
with the stone failed to recover. One
of these had let the wound go un
attended for over nine days; the other
was a farmer, too busy with his crop
10 permit of the applications which
were considered necessary. Mrs. Shel
ton lost her father twenty years ago.
She ha3 used the madstone constantly
since and has never either lost a case
or made a charge for treating. People
come from far and near to be treated.
In many instances dumb brutes that
have been bitten by rabid dogs have
died, while people bitten by the same
dogs have recovered, showing con
clusively that the animals were mad.
The stone is broken in several pieces
and has something the appearance of
a piece of coral. It Is porous and
absorbs the poison when applied to
the wound. It was broken by being
gnawed by a valuable dog. The dog
was beiAg treated for hydrophobia.
He had been bitten and the stone
was bound to his wound. He not only
gnawed the stone off, but tried to chew
it Into bits. The stone Is applied by
being first put In hot water for a few
minutes. Then it is taken out and
placed, as hot as can be borne, upon
the wound. This Is repeated hourly for
twelve hours. If there Is more than
one wound the treatment Is extended
to twenty-four hours.
An fnnecessary Explanation.
He was describing a hold-up in
which he had played the star oart.
"Yes." he said, "the biggest ruffian
held me so tightly against the brick
wall that I could feel the mortar
scratching my backbone. 'Gimme
your watch.' he growled. I gave It to
him Immediately." There was a pause.
uave it ngnt up, eh?" said the
breathless listener. "Yes," said the
victim, "I did." Then he dreamily.
