Says: "It Will Build Up a
Depleted System
Rapidly. ”
Hon. W. F. Aldrich, Congressman
from Alabama, writes from Washing
ton. D. C.
"This Is to certify that Peruna, man
ufactured by The Peruna Medicine Co.,
of Columbus, O., has been used In my
family with success, It Is a fine tonic
and will build up a depleted system
rapidly. I can recommend It to those
who need a safe vegetable remedy for
debility."— W. F. Aldrich.
II. S. Emory, Vice Chancellor and
Masterof Arms, K. l’.’s, of Omaha, Neb.,
writes from 213 North Sixteenth street,
the following words of praise forPeruua
as a tonic, He says:
Catarrh of Stomach.
"It is with pleasure I recommend Pe
runa as a tonic of unusual merit. A
large number of prominent members of
the different Orders with which I have
been connected have been cured by the
use of Peruna of cases of catarrh of the
stomach and head; also in kidney com
plaint and weakness of the pelvic or
“It tones up the system, aids diges
tion, induces sleep, and is well worthy
the confidence of sufferers of the above
complaints.”—H. S. Emory.
Nervous Debility.
Everyone who is in the least degree
subject to nervousness, sleeplessness,
prostration, mental fatigue or nervous
debility in any form, finds the hot
weather of June, July and August very
hard to bear, if not dangerous.
The only safe course to take is to keep
the blood pure,digestion good, and sleep
regular. No remedy equals, in all re
spects, Peruna for these purposes. If
the system is run down and weakened
by catarrh. Peruna renovates and re
juvenates the nerves and brain.
•A book on the catarrhal diseases of
summer will be mailed to any address,'
upon request, by the Peruna Medicine
Co., Columbus, Ohio.
The above testimonials are only two
of 50.000 letters received touching tha
merits of Peruna as a catarrhal tonic.
No more useful remedy to tone up the
system has ever been devised by the
medical profession.

Conductor Arose Grandly to the
Emergency, and Passengers Helped
Out—Husband and Father Some
what Surprised.
Odd Incidents occur in the life of a
Pullman conductor which educate him
to be an all-round, handy man, says a
writer in the New York Press. On the
Erie, near Buffalo, Conductor F. S.
Mosher was informed that a woman
in one of his cars was ill and needed
a doctor. A» a search through the
entire train failed to discover either
a physician or surgeon, the conductor
felt It a duty to offer his services.
The woman was on the way to Chi
cago to see a dying sister, and ex
pected to be joined in Buffalo by her
husband. When Mosher went to her
berth he made a highly Interesting
find—a babe, a tiny girl. Mother and
daughter seemed to be doing nicely.
Faithful to first principles as a rail
road man, he looked at his watch,
counted the rail-joints for twenty-one
seconds, and estimated that the speed
of the train was sixty miles an
“Don’t worry,” he said to the
mother. “I have two of these at my
own home, and I know’ something
about handling 'em. Let me have her.
She needs some clothes.” After giv
ing the baby a warm hath In the lava
tory, he looked through the linen
closet for something soft to wrap her
in, but everything there was starched.
Eight or ten commercial travelers
were In the car. “Here, boys," he
called out, “we’ve got the Erie's baby
to feed and clothe and name. Open
your grips and shell out the softest
garments you've got.” In an instant
the entire car was a-bustle with in
terest In Miss Mahoney. One drum
mer had a tine silk handkerchief, an
other a camel's hair muffler, another
a suit of flaccid merino underwear,
while the rest had cambric night
shirts that had been laundered until
they were as flocculent as fleece.
These articles were eagerly contrib
The night shirts were torn into
strips a foot wide and tenderly the
little form was enveloped. A petti
coat w’as made of the underwear, a
dress of the muffler and a shirtwaist
of the handkerchief. Thus clothed
and in a really jovial frame of mind,
Miss Mahoney was delivered over
to her mother. The next duty was
bestowing a name suited to the oc
casion, and “Dr." Godfather Mosher
proved equal to the emergency. The
mother’s name was Nora, the grand
mothers Camellia, the car In which
the child was born the Cisco, the town
through which the train passed at
the birth Judson, and tha family
name Mahoney. So the young lady
was named Nora Camellia Cisco Jud
son Mahoney, and that name she
bears to-day.
At Buffalo a handsome young man
entered the forward Pullman and
asked the conductor if he had among
tiis passengers a woman of the name
ef Mahoney. “Two of ’em,” replied
Mosher; "they’re In the rear car. the
Cisco.” “Two?” said the stranger.
‘I’m looking for only one, my wife,
Mrs. Charles Mahoney.” "Well. I’ve
two of ’em back here, and both of
em are yours.” “What do you mean,
man?” “What I say. If you don’t
believe it, come back and look.” Lead
ing the way to the berth occupied by
Mrs. and Miss Mahoney he drew aside
th#^ curtain. The husband staggered
hack, gasping: “My God, how did
that happen!”
Butler’s Frank Explanation to Young
American Lady.
The butler in a Scotch family oc
cupies a privileged and unique posi
tion. He sometimes assumes a free
dom of speech which seems to Ameri
can ears to border on impertinence;
but to those who know him his frank
speech Is only one of the many evi
dences of his interest in the family
A young American woman was the
guest at a house where a butler of
that sort reigns. She submitted to
his patronage with much amusement;
but one day there were unexpected
and important guests for dinner, and
a little while before the meal was
served the butler waylaid the young
American in the hall.
“I'm fearin’ there’ll no be quite
snough soup,” he whispered, "so when
it's offered ye maun decline It, lass."
“Decline soup, James?” she said,
laughing. “Why, that would not be
“Weel, not precisely,” said Jame3.
with a benignant smile, “but they’ll
a’ make excuse for ye, thinkln’ ye ken
nae better.”
Proud of Their Disfigurements.
A commander in the navy, who is
aow cruising with the South Atlantic
squadron, sent home to his Philadel
phia w ife the other day a description
>f the women of Montevideo. “These
women,” he wrote, “ are as unattrac
tive as clods of earth. They aro
swarthy, angular, dull cf eye and
itolid of countenance. But what I
wish particularly to tell you of is the
moles upon their faces. Not one in
twenty but has, on her cheek or lip
>r temple, a mole covered with long
flairs. They are proud of these moles
ind regard them as beauty spots, it
is said, indeed, that those girls who
sre moleless will resort to strange ex
pedients in order to raise the ugly
little growths upon their faces. The
women of Montevideo twirl the long
hairs upon their moles proudly, as a
cavalryman twirls the ends of his
Ancient English Bibles.
Though the Bibies used at modern
coronations are lost to the public,
England posseses In the Cottonian Li
brary a volume asserted to have been
used *t the coronation of English
sovereigns 300 years before the stone
now in the coronation chair was
brought to England from Scotland. It
is a Latin manuscript of the four gos
pels, on which the tradition asserts
the ancient kings of England took
their coronation oaths.
All Caused by a Cat.
A curious accident was caused re
cently by a cat climbing a pole of
the Buffalo and Lockport Electric rail
way. While attempting to walk along
the feed wires her tall touched one of
the 22,000 volt Niagara transmission
lines. The cat was instantly killed,
but a short circuit was caused by the
body falling across the wires; this re
sulted in shutting off the power at
Niagara for two hours. Several elec
tric railways and lighting systems In
western New York were without pow
er. The next day another cat In
Utica, N. Y., prowling around the
power house in Utica, also caused a
short circuit, which resulted In blow
ing out several fuses, and the cars
were stalled for some time. The cat,
however, was not Injured and still
Physicians Puzzled.
St. Aubert, Mo., Aug. 4th.—Mr. E.
R. Langendorfer of this place suf
fered very severely with a peculiar
case of Kidney Trouble which com
pletely baffled the skill of the local
physicians and instead of getting any
better he was gradually growing
worse. He says: "A friend advised
me to take Dodd’s Kidney Pills and
after I had used two boxes I was
entirely cured and have not since
had the slightest symptoms of the re
turn of my trouble.
“I had tried all the surrounding
physicians but they did me no good
and Instead of getting better I grew
worse till I used Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"I can sincerely say to everyone
suffering with Kidney Trouble that
Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure them
for they cured me satisfactorily and
completely when all the doctors had
Lighthouse Keeper Forgotten.
Lighthouse keepers on Percy island,
off the coast of Queensland, in 1909
were forgotten for months by the gov
ernment authorities. The food supply
af Percy Ipland is supposed to be de
livered once a quarter, but no food
irrived at the island after the first
week in June until a British sloop
chanced to pass in October. The Isl
inders, twenty in number, were de
lirious from lack of food, but managed
to hail the vessel, which left behind
an ample supply of provisions, and
reminded the Queensland government
of the lighthouse men whose existence
It had forgotten.

The trunk line of the Union Pacific passes
across the State of Nebraska, and it is a valuable
property. The figures presented show that it
pays taxes amounting to $473.22 per mile in the
State of Nebraska, and through the payment
of this amount of tax in this state, it made the
average tax per mile $262.79 on the whole line
of road in the year 1900. The Inter-State Com
merce Commission reports show that the aver
age tax paid by railroads in Nebraska was
$198.86 and the average west of the Mississippi
was but $171.45. These figures show that in
Nebraska the Union Pacific Railroad pays much
more tax than the average railroad pays, and it
pays much more proportionate taxes than it
should pay.
The tonnage given the Union Pacific in 1900
amounted to 548,206 tons of freight for each
mile of railroad, and for purposes of compar
ison, we will compare with the Pennsylvania
railroad system, the greatest freight carrying
roads in the world—a system of roads that
handled in 1900, 3,250,587 tons of freight for
each mile of road (nearly six times the tonnage
of the Union Pacific.)
1 he wildest western boomer would not com
pare the Union Pacific with the Pennsylvania
system of railroads. The Pennsylvania railroad
system having net earnings of $30,440,621.19
in 1900, while the Union Pacific earned but $9,
071,606.79, and still this great system of rail
roads running through the States of Pennsyl
vania, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Dela
ware and Virginia, paid but $307.49 tax per mile
in 1900.
