He had thrown two straight gtrlkea to the following batter when bin attention, was attracted to a brass band playing outside the gate. The main door Happened to be Btanding ajar and Rube caught sight of a German picnic passing in wagons. Waddell wotiad tip hurriedly and threw the ball several feet over the catcher's head and it went on through the open gate. Waddell dashed for it yelling. “Pll get it!" and disappeared from \lew Several of his mates chaaed him and discovered him climbing into one of the wagons and already out of reach.

While thinness may not be a disease, yet it is in reality a condition that needs attention. Under the nourishing power of Sarnose healthy natural flesh will soon be attached. This remarkable flesh-forming food t.trengthens the system generally and and builds up the fleshy tissues so that good, natural plumptness results An ounce of flesh is better than pound of theory. The West Knd Drug Store proprietors believe that the best possible demonstration of the flesh forming powers of Samose is to hav It tried by their customers and to in duce them to use it they offer to pay for the Samose in case it does not giv satisfaction. No stronger proof than this can be given of their faith in It They have seen hundreds who were weak, thin and -Scrawny become plump, robust ami strong, solely through the use of Samose. mar-25-27 Telephone your “Wants” to 693.

DEMOCRATS DISAGREE ABOUT INCOME TAX Washington, March 24.—Differences among the Democrats regarding the form of the income tax will be threshed out at the coming caucus of the house. The sub-committee of the ways and means committee considering the Income tax spent most of yesterday going over details, but reached no conclusion. Some of the Democrats Insist that there must be a uraduated income tax and not a straight tax. Representative Garner of Texas is one of those who will fight out the cause of the graduated form if the committee majority should agree upon a straight tax without attempting to graduate it so as to make the greater percentage of burden rest upon tin* richer classes. Mr. Garner stated that he believes that 7f» per cent of the members of congress, including some of the leading mNjibeiV. favor a graduated tax and that if a straight tax is agreed upon he will tight for the graduated MKS.

IN ADVANCE OF ALL OTHERS European Traveler» Freely Admit That American Railroads Have No Equal In the World. Chile, Mexico, the Argentine Republic, Brasil, are all presenting won derful engineering problems today, as the Iron horse Is beginning to penetrate where before travel was conducted by stage coach. There are places In Mexico, along the wrntern coast, that the railroad Is reaching, where the natives have never see» an engine. American engineers are workinn here as In South America and they solve not only the problem of crons 1 ing high mountain ranges but of keep lng floods In check aHd the ravages of insects. There are stretches of road In Mexico- in the hot jungles—j where men have died by the score In laying the track, heat and fever proving too much for them. In this, country, they are always careful to “vaccinate’* the sleepers, for Insects destroy the wood very rapidly. On the other band, In the temperate and cold zones few men die when building railroads, the climate Is better, and In Alaska, the White Pass & Yukon was largely built by miners, »ho were accustomed to outdoor life Other remarkable engineering feats have been accomplished by American engineers Europe has its perilous, stretches of roadway, especially across the Alps, but seasoned travelers are beginning to admit that the railroads of America are a revelation and wonder to foreigners who are accustomed to short distances even In passing from one country to another.

He was In a state of acute discomfort and fear, from the simple fact that at the moment a piece o* fish bone was sticking somewhere In tho region of his throat.

How much—a —what Is your fee?” "Half a guinea," replied the doctor. “Half a guinea!" exclaimed the man. "For half a minute's work? impossible!’ “But~-conslder for a moment." said the doctor. “It's a salmon bone!” “W’hat has that to do with It?" "Oh, a great deal," replied the doctor. "Had It been halibut or fresh haddock,I should have charged less— perhaps flvo shillings. For codfish or eels, two-and-slx would have been ample payment. Mackerel, two shillings.

Kansas City, March 24.—The screams of a young woman, who had caught her hand in the door of the street car, so frightened James A. Whltty, a passenger, that he dislocated his jaw. Whitty’a mouth is open and physicians at the hospital have been unable to close it. Whitty had been drinking, Ely said. Whltty’s shoulder also Is discolated. What caused this none of the advertising company managers or friends could explain. They said he probably received the injury in a fall. Whittay is 32. Whitty is in a serious condition. Staff physicians have been summoned to the general hospital to aid in replacing the jaw that the man may close his mouth. Talepbone your "Wants" to G93. Washington, March 21. President Wilson will not make a public speech until after the end of the year. Washington clergymen and laymen asked the president to address a mass meeting April 27, when the inter-denominational religious movement is launched. The president told his callerB he had enacted what he called his "self- denial ordinance," in effect a determination to make no public speech and attend no public’ gatherings until the close of the year. There is only one exception the president said, that of attending the dinner of the "Grill Club.” "You mean the Gridiron club, don’t you. Mr. president?" "That’s it," laughingly replied the president. "I knew I didn’t have the name right, but 1 couldn't think what it was.’’ What’s In a Ton of Coal. We have beard so much about coal during the last few months that there seems nothing fresh to *ay about It But how many people know what an Immense number of things can he pro- , duced from a ton of black diamonds? You can get 1,500 pounds of coke twenty gallons of ammonia wat«*r and 14U pounds of coal tar. If you distill the coal tar it will yield Oi# pounds of pitch, seventeen pounds of creosote fourteen pounds of heavy oils, nine pounds of naphtha yellow, six pounds of naphthaline, four pounds of naph thol, two pounds of alzarln, two pounds of solvent naphtha, over a pound each of aurine, benzine, anallne, toludine. nearly half a pound of an- thraclne and nine-tenths of a pound of toluene of coal tar. . From the last named we obtain the valuable substance known as saccharine. which is 230 times as sweet as the beBt cane sugar, one part of it giving a very sweet taste to a thousand parts of water. By using a ton of coal In this way you get more profit out of it than by selling it for burning Railroad’s Educational Bureau.

Record sheets are also furnished in order that the im*n tnay keep an account of the work done and the percentages received. The lessons are practical in subject matter and method. No attempt is made to mark anything but substanoe. Writing. spelling, grammar, and punctuation are not taken into consideration in assigning per cents. liniment is for sale by all dealers.

Joy reigns supreme and smiles 1 of victory overspread the faces of artists and sculptors. Twelve representative citizens placed the stamp of approval upon Paul Cchaba's famous picture. Praise for the city’s strides in the appreciation of true art were coupled with blame for the police censor, Sergeant Jeremiah O’Connor. After forty-five minutes* deliberation, the jury returned a verdict that the picture is not injurious to public morals when displayed In a store window. Fred D. Jackson, proprietor of an art store, who acted as his own attorney, v* as so pleased with the result that he promised to present eacl juror with a copy of the picture. Policeman Not Convinced. Seigt. O’Connor is still of the opinion thrU the exhibition should be prohibited. "I might not know what real art is according to these ‘highbrows,’” he »aid, "but I do know what kind of pictures ought to be allowed on the streets. I Judge pictures by what’s in them, and when the subject has no more clothes on than the young lady in September Morn I believe that the ! picture should be barred from tho store window just as a person would Le if not properly clothed.

Grover, artist of international reputation, made a strong statement for the defense. "I can see absolutely nothing in this picture that is lewd or immoral,” he said. Ought Not to Bathe There. W. W.

"Why do you think It is a puc.»<* place ” asked Jackson. ”lt Isn’t In any way Inclosed. "Are you acquainted with the lo eallty?” The witness said he was not. Mr. Jackson tried to make Mr. Hallam state what part of the picture he oonaidered indecent. "There is no particular part,” he said.| "It arouses sensual feelings in ordinary people,“ "Did it in you?” “Yes,” was the reply. "It is the thought of the subject," asserted Mary B. Balsom, general secretary of the Young People’s Civic league, "which makes a picture lewd. The attitude of mind as it impresses people who see the picture." "If the girl in this picture merely is thinking of taking a nice little bath,” suggested Mr. Jackson, “would the picture be considered Immoral."
