Evidently Recital of Romance Long

"CharleB," said a sharp-voiced wom-
an to her husband In a railway car-
riage, "do you know that you and 1
once had a romance in a railway car-
"Never heard of it," replied Charles
in a subdued tone.
"I thought you hadn't; but don't you
remember, it was that pair of slippers
I presented to you the Christmas be-
fore we were married that led to our
union? You remember how nicely
they fitted, don't you? Well, Charles,
one day when we were going to a pic-
nic you had your feet upon a seat,
and when you were not looking I took
your measure. Rut for that pair of
slippers I don't believe we'd have ever-
been married."

An Ambassador's Nose.
An ambassador to Russia, formerly
n leather merchant in this country,
discovered certain secret processes re-
garding a special kind of leather man-
ufactured there. He would have been
looked on with suspicion had it been
suspected that he could learn any-
thing of these methods. Rut during
his sojourn he got near enough to cer-
tain factories to register, through his
sense of smell, some impressions with
which he was able to work out the
formulas when he returned home.—

And Found a Change in Food Pul
Him Right.
A man does not count as wasted the
time he spends in thinking over his
business, but he seems loth to give
the same sort of careful attention to
himself and to his health. And yet
his business would be worth little
without good health to care for it. A
business man tells how he did him-
self good by carefully thinking over
his physical condition, investigating to
find out what was needed, and then
changing to the right food.
"For some years I had been bother-
ed a great deal after meals. My food
seemed to lay like lead in my stomach,
producing heaviness and dullness and
sometimes positive pain. Of course
this rendered me more or less unfit
for business, and I made up my mind
that something would have to be done.
"Reflection led me to the conclusion
that over-eating, filling the stomach
with indigestible food, was responsible
for many of the ills that human flesh
endures, and that I was punishing
myself in that way—that was what
was making me so dull, heavy and un-
comfortable, and unfit for business
after meals. I concluded to try Grape-
Nuts food to see what it could do for
"I have been using it for some
months now, and am glad to say that
1 do not suffer any longer after meals;
my fpod seems to assimilate easily
and perfectly, and to do the work for
which it was intended.

and find that business is a pleasure
once more—can take more interest in
it, and my mind is clearer and more

President of Western Union and Tel-
ephone Companies Stands for
Public's Rights.
rublic regulation of public service
corporations has come to stay. It
ought to have come and it ought to
stay. That is the flat and unequivocal
assertion of Theodore N. Vail, presi-
dent of both the American Telephone
! and Telegraph company and the
Western Union Telegraph company.
I It came in the form of his annual re-
port to the seventy thousand stock-
holders of the two great corporations.
| Although Mr. Vail's advocacy of full
j publicity in connection with the affairs
| of such concerns was well under-
| stood, nobody in financial circles had
J anticipated so frank an avowal of
full public rights in the shaping of
j their general conduct. It came eonse-
i quently as a surprise, not only be-
I cause of its novelty and squareness,
i but also on account of the unqualified
acquiescence of a board of directors
j comprising such eminent and conserv
j ative financiers as Robert Winson of
Kidder, Peabody <fr Co., and Henry L.
Higginson of Boston, Henry P. Davi-
son of J. P. Morgan & Co.; Senator
! W. Murray Crane, George F. Baer, T.
Jefferson Coolidge Jr., Norman W.
Harris, John I. Waterbury and others.
President Vail's declaration is her
1 aided as the first recognition by those
| in high corporate authority of the jus-
tice of the demand that the public
; be regarded as virtual partners in all
| matters that pertain to the common
welfare. He goes directly to the
i point.
"Public control or regulation of
[ public service corporations by perma-
i nent commissions," he says, "has
| como and come to stay. Control, or
| regulation, to be effective means pub-
I licity; it means semi-public discus-
j sion and consideration before action;
j it means everything which is the op-
posite of and inconsistent with effec-
tive competition. Competition—ag-
gressive, effective competition -means
strife, industrial warfare; it means
contention; it oftentimes means tak-
ing advantage of or resorting to any
means that the conscience of the con-
testants or the degree of the enforce-
ment of the Jaws will permit.
"Aggressive competition means
duplication of plant and investment.
The ultimate object of such competi-
tion is the possession of the field
wholly o^ partially; therefore it
means either ultimate combination on
such basis and with such prices as
will cover past losses, or it means
loss of return on investment, and
eventual loss of capital. However it
results, all costs of aggressive, un-
controlled competition are eventually
borne, directly or indirectly, by the
public. Competition which is not ag-
gressive, presupposes co-operative ac-
tion, understandings, agreements,
which result in general uniformity or
harmony of action, which, in fact, is
not competition but is combination,
unstable, but for the time effective.
When thoroughly understood it will
be found that "control" will give
more of the benefits and public ad-
vantages, which are expected to be
obtained through such ownership, and
will obtain them without the public
burden of either the public office-
holder or public debt or operating
"When through a wise and Judi-
cious state control and regulation all
the advantages without any of the
disadvantages of state ownership
are secured, state ownership is
"If Mr. Vail is right," says Harper's
Weekly, in a concise summing-up,
"then it seems pretty plain that we
are entered upon a new era in both
economics and politics. And it is high
time we did if evolution is to sup-
plant revolution as an efficient force
In the development of civilization."

One of the most remarkable proofs of
the unusual laxative merit contained In
r>r. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is that it Is
effective not only in people In the prime
of life, but at the extremes of ages. As
many letters are received from mothers
regarding the cures of children, as from
men and women of sixty, seventy and
eighty years of age. It must be truly a
wonderful laxative.
In the cure of constipation and bowel
trouble in old people It has no equal. It
corrects the constipation, dispels the head-
ache, biliousness, gas, drowsiness after
eating, etc. People advancing in years
should see to it that their bowels move
freely, and if they do not to take Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. You can pro-
long your life by healthy bowel action.
Clogged bowels invite disease. Women
about to pass the menstrual period cannot
do better than use Syrup Pepsin several
times a week until the system has set-
tled to Its future condition.
Among the strongest supporters of Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin aro Mr. W. O.
Zorn of New Deoatur, Ala., and Mr.
George S. Spaulding of the National Sol-
diers' Home, Kansas, both elderly men.

any druggist at fifty cents and one dol-
lar, but a free sample bottle can be had

Tried Everything
"I suffered with my head and back for over six years,"
writes Mrs. R. L. Bell, of McAlester, Okla. "I never could
get anything to do me any good, although I tried almost
everything except Cardui. One day, while I was reading
what other suffering women said it had done for them, I
decided to try Cardui. Now I am on my third bottle, and
I don't feel like the same person. I feel so much stronger
and better! I recommend Cardui to all suffering women."

benefit they have received from Cardui.

nervous and worn out, take Cardui. We know it will help
you, and that you'll continue the treatment and get well.
