The news of the arrival of M'mo.
Sarah IJornhardt nt the Bluffs preceded
her to this side of the rivor. A delay
ensued. A special cngino was hunted
tip and the cnr of tlio famous personage
wai drawn from the Chicago & North
western depot to that of the Union Pa-
cilio on this side. Fifteen railroad mon
stood around waiting to azo upon the
actress. When the train cauio to u stand ,
the company carao out , almost one mem
ber at a time. Instinctively they rushed
to the west end of the depot at n rate of
speed suggesting a cavernous and dissat
isfied stomach or nn all-controlling do-
eirc to eaten a train on the moment of
leaving. They wcro all ladou with
either valises , grips , traveling
bags , canes or umbrellas , while
Borne of them dragged unmannerly and
objecting typos of tlio canine SDccics.
The presumption is that they wcro all
French , but they looked moro like Eng
lishmen. They affected their trans-chan
nel friends in dross , and , as n consequence
quence , BOIUO of tholr habiliments wore
about as devoid of Uuto as could bo
When nearly all of them had loft the
depot and Inul inserted themselves in
'busses mill hacks or started on a pedes
trian trip to the city , a Knot of ladies and
gentlemen stood around the rear plat
form of the madamo'fl car. Among the
latter wcro several sable porters of the
Fullman stripo. The rest wore actors
and actresses in front of whom stood Mr.
Grau , tlio manager. Every eye was
Drained up the steps. There was a move
ment of somebody inside the car toward
the door. It was evident that Sarah was
nbout to disembark. The next
instunt , an elderly lady , near
the platform extended her right
hand. Mr. Grau extended hia
loft.'and a being with a dark-red , nlumod
turban descended the slops , took both ex
tended hands , and stepped to the ground.
Sarah Uernhardt was in Omaha ! The
railroad inou tznzod. Sarah did also , and
thrusting her arm into that of Mr. Grau ,
started at a brisk pace across the tracks ,
chattering tlio while like a Vassar girl at
recreation. The other mpmbors of her
company followed , her niece , a pretty
young woman , carrying a fuzzy litllo
English terrier weighing nbout ton
ounces , which seemed to appreciate no
toriety not less than his mistress. A.
valet carried n largo black box , from the
grating of which glowed the fiery eyes of
an immense cat , of a hue as sable as n
ruined reputation.
Th9 inadarno was encased in
a traveling ulster cinctured with a
silver girdle in embossed and engraved
squares. The girdle descended low in front
and drew the garment in at the back so
closely to the person as to suggest a pecu
liarly constructed frame. The covering
had a burnished brightness about it
which , at a distance , not irmptly sug
gested the stage doth used in such spec
taculars as the "Field of the Cloth of
Gold. " .
Tlio madajuo appeared to bo about
twenty-Jive years of nee , twenty years
ynnngnr Ihiin oho roalljris. Her face iraa
white , suggestive of the pun * box rather
than natural color , while her lips were as
ripe and rod as of the earliest years of
womanhood. The richness of the red ,
howovor. did nqt warrant the belief that
nature had done the painting.
Mrao liomhardt travels in the Uorn-
bardt's car , which , in February last , bore
the name of the angel-songstress , Futtl.
It is luxuriously furnished and supplied
with all the conveniences which art has
been able to incorporate in those mtiner-
ant palaces. The celebrated actress slept
in the same chamber which shall now ,
probably , know Patti no more. From
the appearance of the couch , it was safe
to conclude that the celestial being had
not long been awake from the sleep of
genius , though the rest of the car betok-
encd imperial rules and willing sub-
The loading members of the aggregation

About the only one in the company
who understands English is the madame
nersnlf. She speaks it with a * great deal
of effort , and frequently enlists the as-
ffistancc of her matchless face and hands
in enabling her tongue to give expression
to her thoughts. It happened that the bellboy -

just u soon as these saw some open doors
they rushed around indiscriminately and
took possession of the neareit apart-

straightening out of which caused a
breeze in good old Normau French which
will not be heard again In many years.

brought about by increased appetite

Mme. Hornhardt's Initial performance
in Omaha was made last night in the
play above mentioned. Tlio audience
was reasonably large , especially in view
of preceding and attendant circum
stances. It lacked in warmth , however ,
save when the well-known climaxes of
tiio piece wcro reached , the import of
which could not bo mistaken by intelli
gent people who had not oven scon the
piece produced in English. In the ex-
captions mentioned , the appreciation
and applause were quite complimentary.
This coldness must bo excused on the
ground that but very few of the auditors
understood the French language _ well
enough to appreciate the more delicate
phases of the intense plot.
Shortly after the rising of the cutain
on the first act , Mr. I1 , licrt/.m.inn , an
old resident of this city , rose in the front
row of the parquet and speaking in
French , nddresRodtho madame , referring
to the length of time Omaha had waited
for her appearance , and bidding her
heartily welcome to the city. The ad

An unfortunate interruption was occa
sioned in the third act by the playing , on
the Fifteenth side of the opera house , of
a brass band. The first note unnerved
the maritime , yet she continued in a quiet
and troubled manner to await the cessa
tion of the air. Hut tlio band was longwinded -
winded , and tno playing continued until
Mme lieruhardt left'the stage in despair ,
and the curtain was rung down. The
bund , however , was stopped , but not
until everybody in the house had re
gretted the bail taste which the interrup
tion had exhibited. Mme. lierndardt
again enacted the scone , and her kind
ness was so appreciated by the audlenco
that she was remembered at the close of
the act with a triple recall.
J'cdorr. has been acted in many coun
tries , by many prominent actors , but
never has it been giyen under sncu pecu-
lias circumstances as last night. . It is a
common coiucidcuco to have artists ap
plauded or hissed in such a manner that
a continuation of their parts would bo
diflicult.but seldom do wo greet "viva
voco" an artist at her very first appear
ance on the stage , nor do wo underline
her most interesting and impoitant dia
logue by a brass band I Sarah Born-
hardt nevertheless made her debut among
us , and notwithstanding enthusiastic
countrymen or arduous sercnadcrs she
brought Fedora to us in all her tender
ness , hatred and love. A great change
lias como over the great actress , not
only from the time she first entered
the comedio Francaise as loading
actress , but since her last visit to this
country. The is no longer the thin , tall ,
sorpont-liko Sarah of yore who covered
herself in lace , shrouded herself in weird
tea gowns with their never ceasing
trains and profuse' embroideries , but a
handsome and stunning looking woman.
In her first days of "Rome Vaincuo , "
"Camille " "Frou-Frou , " etc. , at the
Comedio Frnncaiso , it was often said tnat
her acting was a master piece , she was
wonderful , but where was she ?
Would it not be true to say that prob
ably ouo-half of the audience last night
loft the opera house wlte a certain fool
ing of disappointment , u feeling
that she had not quite como up
to their expectations , their idcasl
They expect acting and co prepared to
see Ft and instead of acting they have
real life ! The realism that Uernhardt
puts into every little detail of her part
makes ono immediately forgot the artist ,
the oolori but the character Itsolf. appears
before one in all its naturallincss and
vividness to such an extent that it ceases
to bo imitation and leaves one spoil-
bound and dazed as the curtain drops.
Dcrnhardt's conception of "Fedora" is a
refined and subdued ono and yet the
power that there is hidden beneath her
struggles to control her ever rising pas
sions and anxieties is wonderful. In
Fedora's first scene with Loris and her
final poison scene , Bornhardt shows in
her artistic way , her great dramatic
force which , though ever present but
subdued , never attains any climax ex
cepting in these two instances.
In Fedora's death scone , which is gen
erally a painful sight to witness in all its
spasms and ranting , Bernhardt shows
the great artist in delicately portraying
the different stages of the deadly bever
age in the most roflnod and yet sensa
tional manner , until finally , overpowered
by the drug , she falls dead at the feet of
her lover. Bernhardt's support is pleas
ing in its conscientiousness and earnest
ness , but is certainly not a strong ono.
It is to bo hoped that Camilla will live
and die her sad Ufa without the interrup
tions that Fedora experienced 1 ast oveni-

'The rumors which have been circulat
ing for several weeks that the suspen
sion of business at Boyd's pork packing
bouse a short time ago was the result of
negotiations by the owner to sell his
property have materialized. The sale
was made on Thursday night to J. D
Her , for $75,000. The proworty 'sold in
cludes the whole plant and the real es
tate occupied , twelve full lots.
As Mr. Her Is in Chicago , the sale hav
ing finally been made by telegraph , no
definite information is obtainhd as to his
plans concerning the establishment. It
u stated by gontlement who nro probably
in a position to speak advisedly that the
establishment will bo considerably en
larged and that beef packing will bo
inado one of the features. The distillery-
fed oattlo would thus become available
without transportation.
Mayor Boyd , who was interviewed
briefly yesterday afternoon , said that he
contemplated doing nothing for a time.
It was not impossible that ho would build
another packing house. Ho owns a well
stocked ranch in Wyoming and con
templates visiting that during tno coming
summer , lie has no serious contempla
tion of an European tour with his family
at present as has been rumored.
Omaha will regret losing Mr. Boyd as
an active business man , and it is to bo
hoped such will not bo his determination.
To him is duo. to a great degree , the
growing prominence which Omaha DOS-

Coal In South Oninlia.
The workmen employed nt the pros
pecting shaft at South Omaha , on with
drawing the drill yesterday found that
coal had been struck. The vein waf un
derlying a strata of black slate closely
resembling coal. Allowing for the waste
the vein measured from seven to fifteen
inches in thickness. Underneath the
coal was found a six foot strata of soap
stone and beneath that the drill entered
solid rook again , similar to that found
above the coal.
The shaft is being put down by the
stock yards company and had reached a
depth of 250 feet when coal was found.
Work was commenced last fall when a
shaft was sunk as far as the rock. A
few weeks ago boring was commenced
with a diamond drill which
takes out a four-inch core. The shaft is
being stint in the pump house a few rods
from the Exchange building.
The discovery of the coal and the pros
pect that a thicker vein could bo struck
lower down created some little excite
ment among the citizens at South Omaha
who were anxious lo got the very latest
news from the shaft. Mr. Cook , who is
now in charge of the work , brought sam
ples of the coal to the city for the purpose -
pose of ascertaining its qualities.
Mr. Alfred Cook , who superintends the
drill , was found at the Merchants' hotel
jast evening. He exhibited several spec
imens of Hgnito. or bituminous coal , of
fair quality , and stated that beside the
five inches of that which had been found
in the vein struck , there wns about four
foot pf a half slate , half coal formation
beneath it. The drill next struck soapstone -
stone again , and then went into lime
stone , whore it is now boring. Ono of
the largest and most -porfuot cores of
limestone over soon was exhibited by
Mr. Cook. It is nearly throe feet in
length and three and a half Indies iu
diameter. It's finished exterior surface
shows the remarkable cutting power of
the drill.
The drill will bo sent through the
strata of limestone in which it is now
working as fast as possible , with a hope ,
which is well based upon miners' expe
riences , that underneath it will be found
a vein of coal which will bo at least two
and a half feet in thickness. Such a vein
would pay to work , and that the quality
will bo better than that of this superficial
vein there is no question , The finding of
a coal vein of snillciont thickness to mine
profitably in South Omaha would bo
about as valuable a discovery to the city
as if it wore struck on Farnam street.
The cost of transportation would be
small nnd the opportunities there for es
tablishing suitable works and u camp
would bo much bettor.
Mrs. Itlchard McCormlok Assaulted
By a House Breaker.
Mrs. Richard McCorinick was most
brutally assaulted by a burglar in her
residence , Capitol avenue and Eighteenth
street , last evening at nine o'clock while
she was attempting to capture him. Mrs.
McCormick had been out to a conven-
ent store to order the groceries for to
day , and hnd closed the front door before
she departed. She was surprised upon
returning to lind the door unfastened , as
it should have been locked by a spring
catch. She supposed Mr. McCormick or
some of the family had returned to the
house during her absence , and went iu
without alarm. As she advanced into
the hall she perceived a man coming out
of her daughter's room and starting
down stairs. She asked him what he was
doing there , and as ho made no reply
she waited boldly until he reached the
foot of the stairs and then grabbed him
by the coat saying : "you're a thief. "
tor a reply the man struck Mrs. MoCor-
rmck on the side of the fane with
a heavy revolver. The blow caused the
lady to fall , nnd the villainous assailant
snrang past her and out of the door. Al
though stunned , Mrs. McCormick re
covered her foot and ran to the door , cry
ing : "Stop that man ; he's a burglar ;
bo's a thief. Stop him , stop him ! " She
states that at this moment there were
two men standing near the corner to
whom she especially directed her ap
peals. Instead of heeding her request the
two men started oil' in different ways.
Mrs. McCormick thinks that they
woro1 confederates of the thief.
The police were telephoned to but
upon arriving at the house could find
nothing to give them the least clue 'as to
the identity of the villainous marauder.
Ho had secured in one ot the 'rooms up
stairs a pocicetbook with $20 in it , which
ho bad succeeded iu escaping with.
Some other articles , which he had when
Mrs. McCormiok saw him , ho dropped.
Throe officers wcro detailed at once to
search for the man but without suc
cess. Ho is described by Mrs.
MoCormlckos being young , about five
feet , three or four Inches tall , heavily
built , and with black mustache. Ho
were a black hat , light suit of clothes ,
and baseball or cloth shoes.
The plucky lady was not seriously in
jured by the blow she sustained but her
cheek bono was quite badly contused.

Appearance at the exposition
Grand Master Workman Powderly , of
the Knights of Labor , will arrive in
Omaha thus morning. As it is his first
visit to this city the event is ono of no
little interest generally as well as to the
members of the order of which he is the
acknowledged head. A mooting of the
committee on arrangements for his rooop-
tion was held at the city hall last evening -
ing and a sub-coramitteo was appointed
to meet Mr. Powderly at the depot and
escort him to his hotel.
The exposition hall will doubtless bo
crowded this evening , upon which occa
sion Mr. Powdorly will speak. It is ex
pected a very large audience will greet
him. There will be uo discrimination
made between members of the Knights of
Labor and the general public. The order
in this city desires that the public should
hear from the lips of its chief the princi
ples and purposes of the great organiza
tion. Admission will be free and all are
invited. Largo delegations are coming
from Council Bluffs and other points in
Iowa as well as Nebraska.

deuce the crowd that had then swelled
to several hundred assembled on the
lawn , and after several selections from
the band the irrepressible Pat intro
duced David II. Mercer , chairman of the
republican city central committee , who
said :
Mayor-Elect Broach : In behalf of the re
publican party , the members of the city cen
tral committee and your Irlcuds In this
metropolitan city , I congratulate you on
your election. We are promt of you. You
were the candidate ot the republican party :
you organized your forces In the face of
Kruat odds and won a maKniticeiit victory.
As the mayor of Omaha you are not the
representative of any ono party ; vou are an
executive olllcer whoso duty it Is to look
after the Interests ot this great city Irre
spective nt class , creed or nationality. A
criticising miblic will watch your every step

government. Gentlemen , I take pleasure In
Introducing to you our mayor , W. J. Broach.
Tlio now mayor stopped forward amid
rounds of cheers and spoke as follows :

of all branches of the city ftovernuieut. Ibo-

Then followed round .after round of
applause and the mayor-elect was forced
by the crowd to go through a regular old
fashioned "all hands around shaking , "
everyone wishing to give him a hand-
greeting. Loud calls wcro then made for
Mr. Bechol , whom Mr. Hawes Intro-
introduced as the present and the next

Impossible for mo to articulate but I will say

will Rive you an administration which you
will not regret. The responsibility ot the
city government will rest for the next two
years and a half upon the republican party
and speaking for one 1 think we are per
fectly willing to assume tbat responsibility.
Thanking you gentlemen.
The next speaker iu order was accord
ing to the introducer the "Seventh ward
hustler Michael Leo. " Ho said :
Friends and follow citizens : I came here
this evening as all of you came to pay a
trlbuto to Captain Broach the mayor-elect of
Omaha. He has surprised even those who
were formerly opposed to film , lie has
shown tlmt he is a leader worthy of the re
publican party before the nomination and
aftcrwasds by the magnificent manner in
which he conducted the campaign that has
brought us on to victory and given
us twelve members of the city council
the mayor and nearly all the officers. I am
Bfttisiied that all the citizens will be so well
suited with his administration that when his
term shall have expired ha will oe ronouil-
nated by acclamation. 1 am satisfied tlmt the
city council will be la herrly accord with the
mayor , and that all appointments will bo
continued , and that the people of Omaha
will see for the next two years a mayor and
council pulling together for the common
good , interests of the city nnd the republican
party. ( Applause. ) I are satisfied that when
another battle comes there will be no clasli-
ine In the republican party , that every man
will work shoulder to shoulder and go into
the fteht and inane as good a iizht In the
county as they have made in the city , i
tbank you , gentlemen. ( Oteat applause. )
Police Judge-elect Louis Berka , in re
sponse to repeated calls , said :
Fellow-citizens : We come here to-nleht
to show our respect to the chief magistrate
of this city of Omaha. We all heartily con
gratulate him upon his election. 1 will say
for ono I will do all within my power to
make the relations of the different city otllcos
harmonious nnd endeavor to give the city a
clean administration , and so far as In me lies
I will endeavor to aid tn carrying out the
laws ot the city though the heavens fall.
( Applause. ) 1 believe in so doing I will re
ceive the support of the people of Omaha. I
am sure that the mayor will endeavor to ap
point the most capable asshtants which will
very materially aid in too administration of
the affairs. \ , "
Chris Specht was next .called . for and
spoke as follows : V-
Gentlemen , Fellow Cltlzoni and Republi
cans Especially : When we came up hero
to-night 1 told two of my Jrimids that lost
fall the democrats had tliolr , music and this
spring we have ours and 1 nope wo will keep

and let them wait along.time for tholr music.
Hon. Pat O. Hawos closed the talk as
follows : „ " ,

This ended ono of the most successful
testimonials of congratulations ever
given to a pubiio official in Omaha , there
being only ono thing about it to criticize ,
and that is the lack of notice given.

The Railroad * 1VII1 Probably Give
An Hour Moro Time Dally.
A petition to the railroads terminal In
Omaha , requesting that the time for the
rceolpt of freight be changed from 4 p. in.
10 0 p. m. , except on Saturday , when 3
P. m. was named , has bceu circulated
among the jobbers of this city this week
through the courtesy of lG. . Dun & Co. ,
and , receiving the signatures of firms rep
resenting seven-eighths of the jobbing
capital of the city , was yesterday pres
ented to the railroad managers by Dun &
Co.'s representative and very courteously
Mr. Johnson , assistant general freight
agent of the Union Pacific railroad , was
very prompt to express a desire to acccdo
to the wishes of our merchants in this
respect , should certain minor objections
be overcome , which ho thought very
probable. Mr. Holdrcgo , general man
ager of the B. & M. , was inclined to
favor the object in view if possible , und
so was Mr. liriggs of the St. Paul. The
only objection urged was that iu case of a
rush of freight in excess of the ability of
tholr mon to handle the road might be
compelled to hold a portion till the next
day. But all promised to consider the
matter in the most favorable light , and
moot the views of shippers if possible.
The attainment of this point will bo a
great gam to our merchants , who nro
now cotilincd to thn time between the re
ceipt of tholr mail , between 13 and 1 p.
m. , and the closing of the freight gates
nt 4 p. m. in which to select , hill and
ship their day's orders , and by giving
them till 0 or oven 5 p. in..which latter is
thought to bo the limit of time which the
roads can grant , an additional day per
week , virtually , will bo added to their
working time , and they confidently look
to the courtesy aud sense of justice m the
managers hero to grant their wishes.
lie Is Accompanied lly Mr. Ames on
a Tour or Inspection.
Charles Francis Adams , president of
the Union Pacific railroad ; Frederick L.
Ames , the well-known director of the
company , and Edward Canliold , Mr.
Adams' private secretary , arrived in
Omaha last evening at 7:30 : o'clock
direct from Now York. They
occupied Mr. Adams' special car ,
which had boon attached to the
Chicago , Burlington & Quincy train out
of Chicago. Both Mr. Adams and Ames
were attired m comfortable traveling
suits as they alighted from the car. Mr.
Adams is looking remarkably well.
The magnates wore driven to the Millard -
lard hotel whore they will stop during
their stay in Omaha. They will remain
until to-morrow morning. After dinner
Mr. Adams and Mr. Ames were joined
by Assistant General Manager Cum-
miners and Acting General Superin
tendent Dickinson and the four gentle
men repaired to the private
otlicc of the hotel where they re
mained in conference until nearly
11 o'clock. After this lengthy meeting
Mr. Adams was approached with in
quiries as to the manner in which the
road has secured the services of Mr.
Potter as general manager , what promo
tions wore probable incident to the
resignation of General Superintendent
Smith , and whether a now depot is to bo
built in Omaha. Ho excused himself
from talking on the probably well author
ized plea of weariness.
Mr. Dickinson , who was seen , stated
that none of these questions were touched
upon during the conference. He said that
Mr. Potter was expected next week , but
would not bo hero during Mr. Adams'
President Adams and Mr. Ames , ac
companied by Superintendents Dickin
son , Dcuol and other olllcials , will start
to-morrow morning on a tour over the
entire system. Whether the president
will return to Omaha ngain is not set
The Bidders ana Painters Stand Out
Pinna For Co-operative Work.
The brick molders , who struck on Tues
day , and the painters , paper hangers and
sign writers , who went out yesterday , arc
both firm in their demands for increased
pay. The molders hold another meeting
at Spoorlo's park last evening. They re
affirmed their resolution to stick to their
demands. If machines should
be put in the larger yards , where
the raise is refused , they * will
start co-operative yards. The president
of the union will start the yards and pay
the scale. Work will bo given to all
molders as fast as possible.
Up to last night thirty-six molders
had gained their point and had
gone to work at $3 per day. A big meet
ing is to be held on Sunday , at2 p. m. , at
Herald's hall , Twenty-second street and
Poppleton avenue.
The master painters had signified no
disposition , up to last evening , to accede
to the now scale of prices winch the as
sembly of employes adopted and sub
mitted to them two months ago. What
the assembly will do is uncertain , but it
is nrctty sure that the mon will insist
upon the scale or not return to work.

Desms for alimony and counsel fees In her
suit for limited divorce from Dr. Frank M.
Dennis , were presented to Judge Daly In the
court of common pleas to-day. The plaintiff
deposes that she know nothing about the
proposal to scud her husband to Dr. Turner's
for treatment until after ho had boon there a
day or two , Some weeks before ho had at
tempted her life and also told falsehoods
about It She never said she would not live
with him if ho was not cured. Her fathor-
In-law did not turn her Into the street with
force , but he did toll her that she must leave
his house and that ho would not provide for
her. She declares that she receives only 8M
a month as teacher at the Wilson In
dustrial school in Eighth street nnd
her prsitlon Is not pormaTicnt. Shu
declares that It is absolutely false tlmt she
over tisod morphine. In answering thn alll-
dnvlt. liov. Dr. UharltTs W. Deems reaffirms
all the statements made In hln tirst atlidavit
aud denies the material allegations contained
In tlmt of the plaintiff. Ho sayn that whnn
she found that her husband was to bo treated
nnd probably cured of the opium habit In
this city , Mho bt'camo excited and did all she
could to obstruct movements to that end.
llov. Krlwnrd M. Deems , who is a brother ot
the defendant nnd pastor of the Westminster
Preibyteiinn church , on Twenty-second
streets corroborates the allldtvltof htf father.
The defendant denies his wile's allegations
of throats and attempting her life , nnd says
that after ho was cured of the morphine
hanlt ho soiuht her also to undergo treat
ment for CHIP , and tlmt she positively re-
lused. lie asserts that she has habitually
used morphine since November , issi , and
thnt It has preverted her moral senses. Ho
offers to submit to nn examination by any
reputable physician if his wife will do the
same to demonstrate which of them is now
addicted to the morphine habit.
The Transcontinental lionets Encoun
ter a New Difficulty.
CiucAoo , May 0. At to-day's meeting of
the transcontinental railway representatives
the fact was made clear that notwithstanding
the willingness of the Canadian Pacific to
enter the combination of overland ro.ids , the
prospect of such a combination being formed
Is not particularly promising. The granting
of a differential to the Canadian Pacific to
Induce It to join is raising unexpactod ob
stacles. The Denver & itio Grande , In con
nection with the 13. & M. , Insists that ,
being a narrow gauge and having to
change freight on through busi
ness , that It is also entitled to differentials.
The Northern Pacific wants a slice ot Cali
fornia business , and being a water route
from Portland to San Francisco it , too ,
wants to make lower rate ? than the direct
lines. The Atchlson , Topcka & Santa Ke ,
on the other hand , objects to giving differ
entials to anylluo and wlllnot subscribe to any
such programme. Although n plan of organ
ization was submitted by tlio committee ,
the difference of opinions on the question ot
rates delayed any progress toward its adop
tion. The general opinion to-nlcht among
the delegates to the meeting was that the
present rates on certain articles will be modi
fied and made so low that If the Canadian
Pacific gets any of the business U will be
forced to haul it at a loss.

arc far more dangerous than is Kenerally

Lone Pine , Neb , Aug.ll , 1830.
I suffered for years with neuralgia in my
head , neck and face , and have spent , I
know , over $100 in trying to ilnd some
medicine to relieve me , and found onlv
temporary relief in anything I tried until
I saw an advertisement of Ath'ophoros. I
gave relief at once , nnd after using on ,
bottle ami a half I found lasting telief. It
helped and cured me where nil other reme
dies failed. I have recommended it to
several of my friends with like good result.
I have not had a return of the disease since
taking the Athlophoros over two years
ago. MRS. M. A. MouroiiD.
