A dozen or more of the 45 consol-

recently ordered for use on the south-
western division of the Baltimore &

giving splendid satisfaction. On the
Mississippi division they have in-
creased the train haul 40 per cent over
the old line. When the grade reduc-
tions are completed the improvement
will be even more noticeable. The
compound ten wheel passenger en-
gines have developed unexpected pull-

Six Thousand Miles of Railroad.
It may be interesting to note the fol-
lowing statement of mileage of the
nqw York Central, leased and operated
lines, which shows the total miles of
track east of Buffalo as 6,114.81.
It is, of course, generally known that
some of the western lines have a
greater mileage, but their tracks run
through a number of sparsely settled
states, while the trackage of the New
York Central and leased lines is all in
the densely populated States of New
|York and Pennsylvania, accommodat-
ing, by its numerous trains, millions of
passengers each year.
Here is the mileage of the New York
Central leased and operated lines:

“Dear Mrs. Pinkiiam—I feel it my duty to write to you to
tell you that I have taken Lydia E. Pinkhatn’s Vegetable Com-
pound and think there is no medicine in the world, like it. I
suffered for nine years, and sometimes for twelve weeks at a
time I could not stand on my feet. I had female troubles of
all kinds; backache, and headache all the time.
Seven different doctors treated me. Some said
I would have to go to the hospital and
have an operation performed. But oh I
I, how thankful I am that I did not, that
I tried your Vegetable Com-

too much in its praise, nor

has done for me. I want you

DON’T STEP ON A RAT
To kill kirn. Don’t feed roaches and bedbugs on
the so-called exterminating powders, which don’t
even make the bugs sick, when you want to rid
your home of all kinds of household vermin, why
not do it in the easiest, surest, cleanest and
cheapest wav—by using Stearns’ Electric Rat
and Roach Paste? It's easily applied in cracks
and crevices or spread ou a piece of cheese, and
no bad odors can 'arise from its use. as it entirely
consumes all animal matter. Rats eat it and die
outside the house: if they cannot get out, inside
of two days the Paste consumes and dries up all
of the rat'but the skin and bones, so that there
Is nothing left to smell.
One of the largest seed stores In New Orleans
used one box last year, found 3-3 dead rats next
morning and never had any smells or trouble
with rats afterward.
A San Antonio housekeeper writes us: “Last
summer I bought a box ot your Paste, wed it
around the sink in the kitchen one night to kill
the cockroaches, and next morning we swept 103
dead roaches into a dustpan on the kitchen
Stearns’ Electric Paste has been made for over
20 years. Thousands and thousands of house-
keepers have used it during that time, and we
have never had one single complaint. Instead,
we have hundreds of letters like the above,
praising the Paste, and calling it the best ver-
min killer known.
For sale at druggists’ and grocers’. 25c a box.
If your dealer does not keep it, send stamps
and we will send you a box.

aoout 2100 cattle the past season and
mbarkete'd them at a range of $4.40 t'o

got $3.25 earlier in the season.
Last winter there was a heavy loss
in range horses. From some sections
it is reported that horses died by the
thousands. They were regarded by
many as worthless. Since spring came
there has suddenly developed a sur-
prising demand for range horses.
