From Manltojia a lady writes her rea

acles wrought In the present day:
"t have been a great traveler in this and
lands beyond the sea," she says, "and It Is
not surprising that my digestive apparatus
never very strong, should have become
thoroughly deranged from the effect of the
starchy, 'highly seasoned, greasy dishes
usually set before wayfarers.

starved and looked Hk a half-live skeleton.
"My brain grew sluggish and Insomnia
punished me till t became a hysterical
wreck. My only hope and desire at this
time was that I might reach the end of a
painful life, and that speedily.
"I heard of the predigested Grape-Nuts
food and some months ago, without one
grain of faith in It, bought a box. I found
to my surprise that after one day's use of
It I was already benefited, and by the time
I had used all of the first package I became
convinced that the days of miracles are not
yet over so great was the improvement
that had come over me. It was the open
ing of the door, as it were, to good health
and energy of brain and body. It gave me
new vigor, mental and physical, my diges
tion was restored, all the distressing symp
toms of a disordered stomach passed away,
and the nervous, hysterical woman at last
began to know what it really la to live.
My eyes grew blighter and my body
rounded out with returning flesh. In the
first three weeks I .gained 10 pounds in
weight and 100 in strength and energy.

I realised that I could discard the nausea

WASHINGTON. Deo. . The Esch-Town-send
railroad bill, which passed the house
tit its lust session,' has been redrawn and
was Introduced In the house today by Mr.
Townsend. The bill -embraces all of the
features of. the .oftrfer measure, but is
drawn so a td jtecify the things which
may be done by the Interstate Commerce
commission. In addition It has a publicity
feature and the bill gives the commission
jurisdiction over refrigeration and terminal
charges. It, also directly prohlbts the car
rier from, granting any shlppr the priv
ilege pf collecting . his product and then
getting a special rate under the short-term
provision for changing rates.
As explained today y Mr. Townsend, the
bill "expresses IM ideas Of the president
In hls'tnessnge and will, If enacted Into
law,, amend the Interstate commerce law
so as to make it rnore effectual tn. securing
exact JuBtlcj between 4he carriers, ship
pers, producers and bo'nsumers. It amends
the substantlva law so as to embrace
within- the '; powers 4 of the commission" all
Interstate carriers of Interstate and foreign
commerce,, whether by. railroads or partly
by railroads and ; partly'' by water, and In
cludes specifically In the term transporta
tion all crs, vehicles, -ventilation, refrig
eration, elevation, transfer, storage and all
other' fttcilUies, and instrumentalities of
shipment ad carriage, as well as terminal,
siding and industrial (racks, thus giving
the commission authority over the so-called
private car and .other agencies, .
.Enlarges ttte' Commlaaloa. ; ' ,.
"It enlarge the . interstate Commerce
commission t , seven . members, increases
the length, of tlttiin tefm of office to seven
years and tl eSrlo to $10,000. This la
done at the, president's aUggestlon, as the
Increased. powerf conferred upoo. the com
mission will 'Increase Us duties , and ..re
sponsibilities and require, th best nwn ob
tainable.' Thlij commission, will compel the
establishment "of Joint through -rate
for interstate traffic and abolish the cus
tom which exists in some cases of bill
ing shipments within the borders of a stata
and tnen compel a reBhlpment.
"It seeks' to abolish the so-called midnight
rate evil by enlarging the time in which
a purpose or scheduled rate can be changed
to sixty days, .and compels the carrier, to
itemise Its schedules and . rates in ac
cordance with, thelnst ructions of the coith
mission. . This schedule must also show the
division of fares or charges between so
called trunk or through lines and terminal
or Industrial roads.
"The bill also provides that the commis
sion shall decide promptly and within
ninety days after hearing all cases brought
before It. .It contains practically the same
provision of the Each-Townsend bill, which
authorises the commission, upon complaint
and. after full hearing, to determine
whether a rata, orv regulation is reasonable
or unreasonable, and if unreasonable, to
substlttue the reasonable maximum rate In
its stead, and it may. order both a maxl-
mum and minimum rate in cases involving
the relation t f rates when It finds that
course -necessary- to enforce the ap
pllcatlpri MfcC itfatentlat' . charges, and
such ord;fW,5lJia'o)nmlssioh shall go
Into effect sjilthln thirty days after
which it la mad.
' Provides for Conrt Proceeding's.
This same provision Applies also to Joint
rates and where the 'carrier parties to
such Joint rates fail to agree on the di
vision of the same, the commission may
determine the share of each carrier.
"It also- provides for a rehearing upon
any order which- the commission has made
on the application of each party to tha
case. In chse the carrier Is dissatisfied it
can on petition begin proceedings In the
federal courts of the Judicial district In
which it has its principal operating office,
alleging that the order of the commis
sion Is unlawful and praying that it be
vacated and set aside. When such petition
is filed it is the duty of the attorney gen
eral to give notice, as provided under the
expedition act of February 11. 1904, where
upon the court, consisting of three circuit
Judges, or two circuit Judges, and a dis
trict Judgo, shall proceed directly to de
termine the lawfulness of the commis
sion's order, in which case the commis
sioner is the defendant and the attorney
general has charge of the defense. Either
party to the proceeding may appeal from
the decision of the expedition court di
rectly to the supreme court. No provision
Is made for suspending either th order of
the commission or of the trial court,, for
the reason that the court, whether ex
pressly permitted by the bill or not would
have the power to enjoin any order if the
proper . showing is made that the order
or decree la unlawful., ....... ,
Inspection and Reports.
"The bill flso provides that the com
mission' shall have authority to designate
and employ speciaK Agents and examiners,
empowered to administer oaths, examine
witnesses and receive evidence; this Is done
to expedite business before the commis
sion. "The bill also provides for the fullest
poHKlble reports from the railroads of
every detail of their business and business
relations showing receipts and disburse
ments, all contracts, private or otherwise,
and gives the commission power to re
quire specified methods of keeping ac
counts and of making reports. The bill
also authorizes the commission and its
agents to inspect at any time all books of
accounts, records, memoranda or contracts,
and Imposes fines and imprisonment tor
keeping and. reporting anything but-true
and full records and for withholding any
information from the commission.
"The president in his message calls par
ticular attention to tfiree matters which
should be included in any measure to
amend the Interstate commerce law: First,
to provide against co-called midnight
rates; second, to empower the commission
with authority to tlx. upon complaint and
full hearing, a reasonable maximum rate
In place of one found by the commission
to be unreasonable, and to have ft go into
early effect; . third, to compel the widest
publicity of railroad bookkeeping and
methods. , This, the new Esch-Townsend
bill fully accomplishes."

SOLDIER MAY BE FATALLY HURT
Foand Wandering; In , Seml-ronseloua
Condition with Hend Badly
Sergeant Rogers, Company M of the Thir
tieth infantry, stationed at Fort Crook, vas
found stumbling aimlessly along Capitol
avenue last night at 8 o'clock. He wax In a
J semi-conscious condition from the effects of
many wounds and bruised on his head and
face. He was taken into the rooms at 920
Capitol avenue, whero the police surgeons
attended, bis Injuries. , There- were 'no less
than six scalp wounds, 'that had the appear
ance of having been Inflicted by the toe of a
heavy boot ox shoe. The soldiers, of whom
there were quite a number In town, said the
sergeant had last been seen' by them In
Burk's saloon at Tenth and Davenport and
that he wae then In the company of a pri
vate by the name of Frank Bowers. They
said that Rogers had drawn $83 on the last
In his semi-conscious state little could be
learned from him as to how or where he
had been assaulted. In a lucid moment he
Lsaid he had $12 when at the saloon. He also
said a negro had assaulted him, but where
this was he was unable to tell. His friends
from the fort think he was assaulted either
In the saloon or In the dark street as he was
leaving, there. He was not found, however,
until the blood had had time to dfy in his
face. His money was ail gone. Frank
Bowers was arrested on Harney street near
Fourteenth at 9:30. He was charged with
drunkenness and was unable to tell any
thing about Rogers'. Injuries.
At 10:30 Rogers was reported worse. He
was taken to the police station, where it
was .discovered that he was suffering from
a fracture of the cheek bone. After his In
juries had been attended to again a bed
was prepared in one of the cells to accom
modate him. It was not thought that rob-
bery was the canse of the assault, though
It is probable that some money was taken
from Rogers during or after the time he re
ceived his wounds.

Neither WIHlam'O'BMen iior Timothy M.
tlealy. .were, praseat,. but. their a bee nee did
not seem to affect the cheerfulness of Mr.
Redmond, as he congratulated the con
vention on tha death of the unionist anti
home rule government which he attributed
to the blows j)t the Irish representatives
In Parliament. Continuing, Mr. Redmond
painted the prospects of the Irish in roseate
hues and said the realisation of their hopes
depended almost entirely -on themselves.

governing Ireland, as follows:
We solemnly assert that no new system
of government In Ireland will be accepted
as satisfactory except a legislative as
sembly freely elected and representatives
of the people with power to make laws
for Ireland and an executive government
responsible to that assembly and this con
vention declares that the Irish national
party cannot enter Into an alliance with
or give permanent support to any English
party or government which doea not make
the question of granting such an assembly
and executive to - Ireland, the cardinal
point pf its program.
The resolution . was carried by ac
clamation. . - .
The convention also passed a resolution
condemning tbe proposed conference of the
supporters of Lord Dunraven, Thomas W,
I Russell Timothy M Hely and John Dll-
I Ion. on the ground that It would be Inter
preted aa an abandonment of the claim for
home rule, i
The. convention will continue tomorrow.
