Board of Railroad Commissioners Or-
dered a Flat Two-Cent Per Mile
Rate, Effective October 1.
Topeka, Kan.—The board of rail-
road commissioners Wednesday after-
noon ordered the railroads to put in
a flat two-cent fare rate on or before
October 1. The railroads have not
made any definite announcement of
their contemplated action, but it is
understood they will recognize the or-
der till the question is settled in
some of the other statss In which it
is pending. At 2:45 Wednesday af-
ternoon the attorneys for the rail-
roads reported from a conference and
made a formal protest to the board's
action in overruling the motion to
dismiss. The board retired shortly
after and reached a decision in five
Gardiner Lathrop, attorney for the
Santa Fe, said that the matter would
be passed up to the heads of the
railroads for final decision. The rail-
roads did not introduce evidence
when asked to do so by the board
and the action by the board followed.
Most of the morning session of the
board was spent in hearing argu-
ments in support of motions of the
railroad attorneys to dismiss tha
complaint of the attorney for the
board, Mr. Grattan. The board over-
ruled the motions to dismiss and in
doing so, G. W. Kanavel, chairman,
said that the board would throw down
the bars and that any evidence which
the railroads wished to offer would
be permitted to bo introduced.
The Administration Does not Intend
to Build Another.
Soldiers Form a Mob.
Junction City, Kan.—A mob of neivi-
ly F>0 soldiers of the Farriers school
at Fort Riley came here about 1
o'clock Sunday morning for the pur-
pose of releasing a comrade who was
confined in the county jail. The
s.ieriff and city police force were noti-
fied of their coming and taking posi-
tions in windows above the jail opened
a fire that quickly dispersed the mob
as it was to force an entrance. The
authorities at Fort Riley placed
guards at the jail and are aiding in
t..e effort to find the members of the
mob. Two arrests have been made
but no ono was shot.
After the Pacific Cruise it Will Return
to Atlantic and Be Increased to
Washington.—It is authoritatively
stated at. the navy department that
President Roosevelt does not contem-
plate the creation of two battleship
fleets. Nor does Secretary Metcalf,
nor even the general board, which is
supposed to represent the extreme
view in naval development, favor eith-
er the division of the present magnifi-
cent floet under Admiral Evans' com-
mand or the creation of another fleet
in order that there may be a formid-
able American navy in both oceans—
the Atlantic and the Pacific. On the
contrary, it is regarded at the navy
department as better policy to main-
tain" one perfectly equipped and well
drilled fleet, fr#e to move speedily to
any part of the globe at short notice
and the present plans contemplate the
increase of the strength of the exist-
ing Atlantic fleet from IS to 28 battle-
ships. This will afford a command as
large as can be properly directed by
any one officer and it will moreover
about mark the capacity of the ports
and dry docks in any particular sec-
tion of the world. So ii is asserted
positively at the department that
there is not the least intention of
keeping the battleships which will go
to the Pacific permanently in those
waters. That fleet, it is added, will
surely return to the Atlantic seaboard
after it has fulfilled its mission and
demonstrated the feasibility of safely
transferring such a vast naval force
He Asks a Woman's Removal.
Lincoln, Neb.—State Superintendent
of Schools McBrien Friday formally
requested Gov. Sheldon to remove
Mrs. Francis Knox, county superinten-
dent of Cheyenne county. Superin-

in rebellion against his authority and
his ignored the law relative to the
issuing of teachers certificates. Under
a now law the governor is empowered
to remove any county official. Gov.

Santa Fe Flyer Derailed.
Topeka, Kan.—The Colorado flyer
passenger train of the Santa Fe rail
road, was derailed at Wakarusa, 12
miles west of Topeka at 1:30 o'clock
Thursday morning. Three Pullman
cars and one tourist sleeper were de-
railed. None of the passengers re-
ceived more than minor bruises but
Passenger Conductor McNeil had a leg
severely wrenched, and the Pullman
car conductor (name not known) was
also severely injured. A defective rail
was the cause of the derailment. The
four cars bumped along on the ties for
several hundred yards but were not
overturned. Governor Hoch was a pas

Will Not Postpone Rate Hearing.
Lincoln, Neb.—The state railway
commissions Friday notified the rail-
road companies that the commission
will not grant their request for the
postponement of the hearings on grain
rates. To do so, the commissioners
say, would allow the carriers to
charge the present rates on their crops
now partly harvested and moving to
market. This was the commission's
reason for declining to extend the
Formal Order Issued.
Topeka, Kan.—The formal order, de-
cided on Wednesday by the state board
of railroad commissioners, for a two-
cent fare rate in Kansas, was drawn
up late Thursday afternoon. It is di
rected against all roads in Kansas,
provides that all the roads shall put
into effect a two-cent rate within 30
days from date for all passengers over
12 years of age, and one cent a mile
for all passengers between the ages
of six and twelve. The order is mad
to cover only the period of time i
ivhtch the two-cent fare question Is in
litigation in Nebraska. When the
question in Nebraska is settled the or-
der becomes void.

A Wonderful Restoration Caused a

Mrs. Charles N. Preston, of Elkland,
Pa., says: "Three years ago I found
that my housework
was becoming a bur-
den. I tired easily,
had no ambition and
was failing fast. My
complexion got yel-
low, and I lost over
50 pounds. My thirst
was terrible, and
there was sugar in

Little son, aged seven, whose train-

Laundry work at home would be
much more satisfactory if the right
Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it is usually neces-
sary to use so much starch that the
beauty and fineness of the fabric is
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only destroys the
appearance, but also affects the wear-
ing quality of the goods. This trou-
ble can be entirely overcome by using

Years ago, when the G. A. R. annual
department encampment was held in
Boston, as the veterans were marching
along one of the avenues a lady, who
had secured an elevated position on a
wagon in a side street, became con-
spicuous by the enthusiasm she dis-
played, and was dissatisfied with the
lack of it in the by-standers. "Cheer!"
said she. "Why don't you cheer? I

El Reno, Okla., April 11, 1907.
Dr. C. P. Simmons, San Antonio, Texas:
Dear Sir—1 have just returned from a visit, to your lands in Atascosa
County. 1 left El Reno on the 2nd of this month, for the purpose of look-
ing over Southwest Texas, and especially your land, with a view of locat-
ing in Texas, if suited.
1 spent two nights and a day on your ranch, and while there I was in
the Musgrove, Brown, Turkey Creek, Muley cow and Frenchman pas-
tures, and made as complete an examination of the property as I could
within the limited time that I had to spare. I consider your land the best
body of land that 1 have seen in Southwest Texas, and I have looked over
considerable lands in Texas.
1 was agreeably surprised at the quality of the soil on this ranch. It
was much better than I expected to see, and I consider it a most favor-
able opportunity for a poor man to get a good home.
The Foil is what I would call dark and red chocolate loam, with occa-
sionally a little sand, which I consider a benefit in some respects rathe*
than a hindrance. '
1 have been engaged in farming and ranching about ail my life and
have had much experience in raising alfalfa in Kansas and Oklahoma in
my mind there is no question but that the black land on your rancii ia
