ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVE'S SPEED

to a Frasxle.
The electric locomotive has It steam
brother badly whipped as to speed,
and It only rm!:i3 to build tracks
that will bear trains at over 100 miles
an hour to learn just what can be
expected of the electric trains. At the
celebrated Berlin . Zossen speed trials In
1903 there was established the amaalng 130
miles an hour record the fastest that any
man or man-made machine ever traveled.
It Is almost 300 feet a second, or equal to
the speed a man would attain In falling
from the top of a twenty-story building. It
Is a apeed so great that a deflection of one
of the rails of an eighth of an Inch Is sufll
clent to throw a train off the trak. It is
so fast that the front of . the locomotive
has to have a great knife-shield to cut the
wind, which otherwise would either check
the speed or" crush In the front of 'the en.
A train running at this frightful speed of
130 miles would' circumnavigate the globe In
week. It would place the Pacific within
twenty-four hour of the Atlantic. Will
such a thing ever come to pass? Perhaps.
A hundred years ago thirty miles, an" hour
waa a marvelous speed; now It Is common
If a train can make 130 mllea now experi
mentally why may not thla speed be com

The defense did not seek to deny the

William H. Dasher is said to be In a seri
ous condition at the South Omaha hospi
tal from the effects of a gunshot wound
received accidentally a few days ago. He
Is a resident of Sarpy county. He and a
party of friends were hunting when the

Marshall Brown gave Captain J. C.
Trouton a long chase yesterday In an at
tempt to break Jail. He Is the first man
who has broken out of the new South
Omaha Jail. He waa in the cell room await
ing a hearing in police court. He waited
until Jailer F. M. Smith came Into the
corridor, sprang past him and out the outer
corridor door. The captain waa in the
private office and heard the rush. He gave
chare, shooting as he ran. The negro
dodged around the corner of the city hall
on Twenty-fourth street and ran all the
way from O to Q street before he was
overhauled. None of the shots fired took
effect, but the negTO became frightened
after a while and stopped running. He
said: "Every one of them bullets cut the
dust closer and closer to me and I reckoned
it was time to stop."
He was taken before Judge Callanan and
sentenced to sixty days in the county jail
on a charge of vagrancy. His case will be
Investigated more vigorously on account

Medicines like those of Dr. R. V. Pierce of Buffalo, warrant their makers in printing their every ingre
dient, which they do, upon their outside wrappers, verifying the correctness of the same under oath.
This open publicity places these medicines in a (lass all by themselves. Furthermore, it warrants physicians
in prescribing them largely as they do in their worst cases.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
Is m most potent alterative or blood-purifier, and tonic or Invlgorator and acts especially favorably
In a curative way upon all the mucous lining surfaces, as of the nasal passages, throat, bronch
ial tubes, stomach and bowels, curing a large per cent, of catarrhal cases whether the disease af
fects the nasal passages, the throat, larynx, bronchia, stomach (as catarrhal dyspepsia),, liver,
bowels (as mucous diarrhea), or other organs.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
Is advised for the cure of one class of diseases only those peculiar weaknesses, derangements and irregularities pecul
iar to women. It is a powerful yet gently acting invigorating tonic and nervine.
For weak, worn-out, over-worked women no matter what has caused the break-down, "Favorite Prescription"
will be found most effective In building up the strength, regulating the womanly functions, subduing pain and
bringing about a healthy, vigorous condition of the whole system.
A book of particulars wraps each bottle giving the formulae of both medicines and quoting what scores of eminent med
ical authors, whose works are consulted by physicians of all the schools of practice as guides in prescribing, say of each
ingredient entering into these medicines. ,
Both medicines are non-alcoholic, non-secret, and contain no harmful habit-forming drugs, being composed of glyceric
extracts of the roots of native, American, medicinal, forest plants. They are. both sold by dealers in medicine. You
can't afford to accept as a substitute for one of these medicines of known composition, any secret nostrum. Don't do it.
The city of Indianapolis has a new gas
company which proposes to furnish artifi
cial ga at 60 cents a thousand cubic feet.
in the charter of which are some unusual
provision which have, however, stood the
et of time and use either In this country
or In England. The franchise Is described
In Municipal Engineering, and its principal
provisions are as follow: The capital slock
of $1,000,000 can be Increased at any time
by submitting the additional share to
sale at public auction on thirty days'
published notice, any premium to go into
surplus, and not to bear dividends. It Is
provided that if extensions of mains are
desired, and they cannot be obtained under
ther paragraphs In the contract, the peti
tioner for extension may subscribe for
stock sufficient to lay the mains and sign
contracts for ga sufficient to pay the In
terest on the cost, but even then the stock
must be put up at auction and must be
purchased at par by the petitioners In case
'it 1 not sold at a premium at the auction.
These provision Insure that the stock
shall always bring its par value Into the
treasury, and that the dividends paid shall
be on this par value, no more and no less.
The necessary extension are also pro
vided for without over-burdening the com
pany, while at 'the same time giving the
property owner large . Interest on the
money Invested 1n the extension and ulti
mate return ot the principal a well. .
The capital stock, by the terms of the
subscription Is placed in the control of a
board of five . trustees, stockholders, and
must be voted as a whole. This board of
trustee waa named th the article of In
corporation,,, and the board fill all vacan
cies, except one member was nominated
by the mayor of the cVty, and a vacancy In
this particular office I filled by another
nomination by the mayor.
This provision keep the company in the
control of the trustee, even if the stock Is
all bought up by a competing company.
The original board is one in which the
people have fulleat confidence. .
Any member ot the board of trustees can
be removed by the circuit court on showing
that he is an empjoye or a holder of slock
or other securities of any company deliver
ing or purposing to. deliver gas In the city.
or ror corrupt practice or .misconduct detri
mental to the company's Interest.
The board of nine directors Is elected each
year by the board of trustees, to manage
the business and prudential concerns of the
company. This relieves the board of trus
tee of all duties, except that of securing
competent directors independent of any in
fluence detrimental to the company, and
make It possible to enlist as trustee men
of the highest class and possessing the full
est confidence of the citizen and stockhold
er, without the opportunity to refuse on
account of pressure of business or tem
porary condition of health.
The company expect to pay cumulative
annual dividend of 10 per cent, pavable
semi-annually. The company's earnings are
devoted first to the payment of matured
debt nd operating expenses: second, to
the payment of the dividends semi-annually
and unpaid accrued dividends; third, to the
extensions and betterments ordered by the
Board of Public Works, and, fourth, to re
payments of stock subscriptions, thus re
ducing the capital upon which 10 per cent
dividends must be paid. When the stock
holder have been repaid their entire aub-
crlptlon with 10 per cent Interest the stock
Is cancelled and ownership by the company
ceases, and It I wound up. The ultimate
ownership question Is settled by transfer
ring the property to 'the city when the
stockholder are fully, paid.
Th atate charter fixe the life ot the
company at fifty year, and the' contract
with the city Is for twenty-five years. If
the stockholder are not all repaid in
twenty-five yer the Board of Public
Work may require the company, to bond
ltelf at 8 per cent for the amount due

AILS OF THE MIDDLE-AGED MAN
Why He Think It la Rheumatism
Thrt Is Bothering Him
and IV'ot Goat.
"Can anybody tell me," said the mlddlo
aged man, "the difference between rheu
matism and gout? Now, not being very
well versed In medical science, knowing
very little in fact about osteology, or thera
peutics, or anatomy, materia medica or
pharmacopoea, I wouldn't undertake, my
self, offhand to say; but In a general way
I would say that gout Is an ailment that
attacks the rich and rheumatism the poor;
and, being not what you would call a rich
man, I suppose what I've got la rheuma
tism. "I have read in .novel and seen pictures
of portly gentlemen ot middle age or rather
more who sat in great easy chair and with
one foot all swathed up in bandage
stretched out In front of them supported
on a foot rest. 1 This 1 the old gentleman,
living In a fine old manor houae or In a
splendid mansion In town, who 1 described
in the novel as being testy and choleric
choleric, as I understand It, meaning not
that he ha cholera or anything of that
sort, out an uneven temper; and this old
gentleman with foot thus done up In
bandage and supported on a foot rest has
"But several of my symptoms are differ
ent. I don't live In an old manor house.
nor In a mansion In town; and however
disposed I might be to be testy and, chol
eric, I have to keep my temper, and I don't
swath my foot In bandages and recline It
on a foot reat. I have to keep more or less
on the move.
"Bo I suppose that In the absence of the
familiar gout symptoms, we might safely
diagnose my case as one of just plain rheu
matism; but I guess my rheumatism hurts
me about as much as the gout of our testy
and choleric old friend does him."
