THE RAILROADS Changes on the New Panhandle Time Card. POSTAL CLERKS' WORK General News of Railroads and Railroad Employes. Chief 'I'm In Dispatcher, H. S. Tousley, was yesterday busily outraged lu making out a new time table to go Into effect Sunday. Following ire the changes* that will affect Lo- pansport citizens: There 'will 'bo trains to Chicago at 3:15 a. in., 5:00 a. in., 1:15 p. in., ami 2:00 i>. in., trains from Chicago at 12:50 a, m., 1:00 p. m., 2:10 aud S:30 p. m. Two of the. trains will be very fast ones. The train between Louisville and Chicago .will go from here to Chicago In three hours, or at about the rate of -it miles per hour. The train from Chicago to Louisville will also cover the distance ictweeii hure and Chicago In Mint Lime. p.oth trains will stop for crossings, etc. f here will also be a very 1'ast merchandise freight put on between Chicago Hid Louisville. The passengers be- ween Chicago aud Louisville will be the fastest trains that have ever been •nn on tin- Pennsylvania lines in this part of the country. TI1K FIRST ACCIDENT. Tile first accident on the 1'lkes Peak •ogwiieel railroad since It was opened 'ou'.'toeti yoiii's ago occurred Saturday ind but for the safety brakes used on ill the ca.rs of this line a. train load of passengers would have hoeu hurled down the mountain to destruction. Coming down the mountain the side bars on the driving wheels on both sides of the engine broke'apart, reuder- ng the compressed air brakes on the •ngines useless. Conductor Guymau ipplled tlio automatic brakes in Hie >asseugcr coach ami soon stopped that. The engineer iuiil ilremaJi were compelled ro abandon the engine, which was beyond control and it went down the 25 'per cent, grnde :i.t a terrific speed for nearly half n. mile, whore it struck 11 curve. Jumped the track and shot through the -air, for fully, 3OT 'eet. going clear over a boulder fifteen feet high upon the mountain side above the track. It ploughed immense holes In the mountain and the tender nud engine separated just as the engine exploded, hurling irou and steel In all directions. The train was a. special carrying Manager Frederick Harrison and party of.the London and Northwestern railway, and Major S, K. Hooper of the Denver and Rio Grande road. WOItK OF It. R. POSTAL CLERKS'. Few persons who have not taken a trip ou one of Uncle Sam's postoflioes. on wheels, have any Idea of the work accomplished by the railroad postal :lerks. and none but the clerks themselves realize liow trying the responsibility and the work is upon their nerves. Tin; following summary from the report, of. Doc •Hilllrou. head clerk In the mall service ou the "YS'abash road between Toledo and St. Louis, will give some idea, of what is accomplished by the clerks, Seven men arc on the run. three working- west nod four working east. Bach made eight round trips during the month. They handled 15,003 pacK- ages averaging seventy-five letters, making a total of 1,174,725. They also handled 3,831 sacks of papers. . If persons could be made to realize the vast amount of work expected or the postal railroad clerks they would be more painstaking In addressing their letters. . • INTERLOCKING DEVICES. A ra.llw.iy official yesterday in speaking of the numerous disasters at switches of late, said that lie sometimes thought, the outlay for Interlocking plants and signal Inventions were not justified, nud that'if they were all removed travel would be safer, as it would tend to make engineers and yard men more careful than they now appear to be. If they were made to realize that the safety of human life rested entirely with them and not party with mechanical appliances It might result in greater alertness. RAILROAD NOTES.

Li Hung Chang is worrying the Americans with Questions in the same way that lie worried Englishmen wliile icross the water. While conversing with Mayor Strong the Chinese Earl suddenly asked: "'Arc you a resident of New York?" The Mayor earnestly assured the Earl that lie was. Then the Earl told the Mayor that in China the resident of a town or city was not eligible to the oilicc 'of Mayor. They believed iu China that a resident would, lie too much uuder the temptation to show favoritism in his appointments to friends. "How much is your salary';' 1 was the Earl's next question. The Mayor informed the distinguished interviewer that lie received warrants during :i year for sums amounting to $10,000 as salary for the office of Mayor. Earl Li seemed to be doing some, mental arithmetic, which possibly reduced the !?10,000 to its equivalent in -tads, and then said: "Well, I should say thut'wai? a fail- salary-" , ..-,..Then ho interrupted the Interpreter to Inquire if It was paid in gold. He was Informed that the pay was in-gold or its equivalent, and then repeated:"A proper salary." . He said, bo liked the salary plan better than that, which lie found in. Ger-' many and France, where no salary is paid to Mayors, and it w.-.s necessary generally to select a rich man for the office. The danger was that.a rich man having been secured to do the-duties i'or uotliiqg, he would be kept in office too long for the present health of the municipality. In China, he explained, Mayors got a fixed sum for expenses and entertainment, -He switched off from.salaries and cross-examined the Mayor severely on the operation of municipal service, and having learned all' that he wanted' to on this subject dismissed tljc IVfayor wii.li an approving nod, * * * There were many amusing incidents of the trip o'f Li Hung Chang across ou the St. Louis.. Li was the center of almost all of thein, but he didn't have a monopoly by any means. .This particular one happened on Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. The big guns in Li's party a.re accustomed .In, China to do. pretty much what^lieir own sweet wills .dictate—at'least when only the pedestrains Jn the lower .walks of society are concerned. This is a story of Lord LI. .For some reason or other Lord I>1 did not care to occupy bis state room last Wednesday night. He preferred the broader accommodations of the drawing room. Just why he preferred them docs not matter. 'Suffice it to say tliot lie did, and be so asserted, not at all supposing that he was working in opposition to the company's rules.. He found it out shortly. At. first he was advised to. forego bis .iden. "Later he was 1'orbldclen to carry it out. Lord LI becarae enraged. 7t availed him nothing.

WheV the Oriental statesman was informed that the standing army o£ this country only numbered 20,000 men lie laughed aloud. It is said tliat lie could hardly believe it. He was told that the United Stoics reliecl in a large measure on the citizen soldiery—the National Guard. "Suppose," he said, "that the militia are neglected; what happens then?" I'he answer was that they never were neglected. LI only smiled. Evidently his experience a.t liomo had made him skeptical in this direction. 5100 REWAUD, 5100. The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure in all its stages and that Is'Catarrh.. Hall's Catarrh Cure Is the only positive cure now known to the medical fraternity.- 'Catarrh being a constitutional disease, requires a constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting directly upon the blood and mucous surfaces o£ the system, thereby destroying tbc foundation of the disease and giving the patient strength by building up the constitution and assisting nature in doing its work. The proprietors have so much faith in its curative powers, that they offer One Hundred Dollars for any case that It fails to cure. Send for list of Testimonial?. Address F. J.

Lafayette Courier: ,1-wo ' ti'rcyclists, presumably from Lafayette, but for the sake of the city's honor it is to be, hoped not, committed as mean a deed' yesterday as any man could commit. They were wheeling past the tarm of Francis Acheson, on tae TVea, going •n-cst. George Aclilson was watering a very fine mare near the barn as. they went by. One of the men pulled .out a revolver, aud deliborate-y nred in his direction; evidently : aimlng 'at the horse.

DO NOT MOVE, Exchange—A man who ever expects to amount to anything generally stays in one place, long enough to establish a reputation and secure a good footing In .the business world. The human comets who fly from place to place, making believe they are going to bring death and destruction and change the general order of things, are only short lived affairs at best, and the only wonder ol it all is that in this enlightened age there are people who allow themselves to be duped and deceived by such disturbers of the peace. From all accounts Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is. a Godsend to the afflicted. -There is no. advertisement about this; we feel Just like saying it: —The Democrat, Carrolton, Ky. For sale by B. F.

Pettit Shortly after the funeral he received a telegram from home announcing the death of bis own wife, and thus tie two brothers were made sharers In life's greatest grief. Mrs. Pettit had been indisposed when he loft home, but there was nothing serious about her case. The announcement of her surprising death was a terrible shock to him. A son and three daughters survive. He left yesterday for his home, accompanied by Joseph W. Pettit, the brother afflicted so shortly before. It is Indeed a strange deed that death has douc in this case. THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY. On receipts of ten cents, cash or stamps, a generous sample will be mailed .of the most popular Catarrh and.
