Track Conditlowu Tired of -waltJng on the delayed BCtlon of the State Board of Railroad Commissioners. J. I. Shepard, of Fort Scott, secretary of the National Union of Railway Tracltmen, Saturday afternoon appealed directly to Governor Hoch in his attempt to have the faulty and in some cases, dangerous track of the Missouri Pacific repaired. He filed a petition with the governor asking that he select some competent man to accompany a man to be furnished by the trackmen on a trip of Inspection over the Missouri Pacific lines in Kansas. He cites that porUon of the track bt-tween Port Scott and lola as being in especially bad condition and sul>- mits the affidavits of two Redfleld men to prove Ms statement. With his petition he submits a picture of broken ties in the track between Tola and Gas City. Speaking of the track between Tola and Ft. Scott Mr. Shepard says in his petition: "Petitioner Is in iwssesslon of or^ clf rs. which have been sent out by the Missouri Pacific offleJals. Instructing trackmen to cover up broken and ri'tten ties, so that they could not be Keen. A copy of one of said orders IS hereto attached, marked Exhibit "A." Actiiyr upon such orders, hundreds of miles of its tracks have been covered -with ballast, composed of finely crushed stone, thus hiding the <l<fertB from \1ew. There are twenty- two hundred miles of Missouri Pacific railway in Kansas and there are not fifty miles of safe track in it nil. P<-:\th lurks {n almost every p;nt of tl .e whole system in Kansas. "On the 9th day of October. the petitioner caused a portion of the railway company's tracks near Redfield. Kan., to be inspected and photographed. The photographs taken at that time are filed as exhibits. The track at that point inspected' and photographed was found nicely covered with ballast and to the casual observer, presented a fine appearance. The ballast was removed from a space on the track that should have contained twenty two ties. This piece of track was then protographed. There was found In this space thirteen rotten ties, eight sound ones, and one completely rotted away and gone. Attacked are the aflJdavfts of two citizens of Redfleld. Kan., who were present when the track was uncovered and' photographed. Tiie men who made these affidavits are well res- ppcted where they reside, and no one will for a moment question their fnithfulness. Filed herewith are other pictures taken some days later than the ones at Redfleld. They all ^ihow the dangerous condition that now e.xists on this railroad." BEWARE OF BACKACHE SIMPLE PKES( KIPTIO.X PRETE.VTS SERKMS KID.XtT IU.SE.4SE. Mix Thin at 'H«me as It Is Splendid f«r rrlna^j- Troobles and Hbeomatism. More i>eople succumb each year to some form of kidney trouble than any other cause. The slightest form of kidney derangement often develops info Brights kidney disease, diabetes or dropsy. When either of ihese diseases are suspected the sufferer should at once seek the best medical attention possible! -Consult only a good, first class physician, leave patent med icines alone. There are many of the lesser symi>- toms of kidney trouble which can be treated at home U staled by a well- known authorit.v. For some of these, such as backache, pain In the region of the kidneys, weak bladder, frequency, (especially at night) painful scalding and other urinary troubles, try the following simple home remedy: Fluid Extract Dandelion, one- half ounce, ComiHJund iCargon one ounce, Compound Syrup SarsapariUa three ounces. These simple ingredients are harmless and can be obtained at any good perscription pharmacy and any one can mix them by shaking well in a bottle. The dose for adults is a teaspoonful after each meal and again at bedtime. There is no better general remedy known to relieve all forms of rheumatism either, because It acts directly upon the kidneys and blood. It cleans the clogged up pores in the kidneys so they can filter and strain from the blood the iwisonous uric acid and waste matter which if not eliminated remain in the blood, decomirase and settle about the joints and muscular tissues causing the untold suffering and deformity of rbeumatlbm. Backache is nature's signal notifying the sufferer that the kidneys are ijot acting properly. "Take care of your kidneys," Is now the physicita 's advice to his patients.
