|| of helping some
woman. W hen I
was 1G years old 1
caught cold and had
suppression for two
months. I got so
weak 1 could scarce-
ly drag myself up
the stairs. 1 went
to two doctors, then my mother got a
bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound and 1 took it. I D8VW had
any more trouble and got strong fast.
Then I took it again before my little
girl was born and it helped mo a good
deal and I give the Compound the credit
for it. Tht n this spring 1 felt very
badly again, but I took the Compound
and have been well all summer. I can -
not be grateful enough for your medi-
cine." — Mrs. Harold M. Smith, 470

FJ K >S PARTIAL PARALYSIS
A St. Joseph, Missouri, Mail hooted
tiK Judge aiui jury.
Over in Osage county the case or
Stephenson vs. the M. K. & T. rail-
way for $ ",500 for alleged personal
injuries, occupied the time of Judge
Hudson, several attorneys and wit-
nesses for over 10 days. The jury re-
turned a verdict of $176 against the
toinpany, allowing plaintiff two
months' salary for the time lost by
reason of the alleged injuries.
The testimony showed that the
plaintiff on several different occas-
ions had claimed damages for per-
sonal injuries from other companies
and it appears the Jury after careful-
ly weighing the evidence concluded
that plaintiff's claim was not honest
and his alleged Injuries were feigned.
An erroneous theory and sentiment
has been established to a great ex-
tent which tends to make a railroad
company legitimate prey for one who
may have sustained injuries by a
railroad company, either while in
their employ or not in their employ,
whether the company was at fault or
not, and juries* are prone, in many
cases, to award damages to the plain-
tiff, even though the evidence may
not warrant It.
The St. Joseph (Mo.) News re-
'cently told a very interesting story
| of the gross injustice done to rail-
roads, a part of which is reproduc-

railroad company on "fake" evidence.
It is the theory of the state that
I (ieorge A. Callicotte feigned paraly-
sis of the legs. A year after the "in-
jury." almost to a day, Callicotte was
,arrested at his home in St. Joseph
| while masquerading in woman's
' < lothes, carrying in coal.
Doctors who testified In the civil
suit then explained that the symp-
toms of paralysis must have been
produced artificially by the injection
of a drug to the spinal cord, or to
the sciatic nerve.
The test included thrusting pins
and needles Into his legs and feet.
Testimony in the trial shows he did
not flinch under this treatment.

' turned eleven true bills in the case
summoned before it all of the doctors

'Healthgrams' On Skin-
Flashed to Thousands
One of Nature's signals is an unhealthy skin. It is -a
scientific tart thai the skin indicates the condition of th- "
blood and the blood is the building material for the body and all its
vital parts. Unless the blood is nourished and kept rich and healthy,
it will eventially react on the organs It feeds and reduce the indi-
vidual to a pitiable condition. Little do people realize the physical
ailments that drain away strength and vitality ami that can bo
traced straight to the poor supply of blood. Pimples Eczema Salt
Rheum, Rheumatism, Carbuncles, Boils, Catarrh with Its obnoxious
results and the tendency to easily catch cold,
Malaria and scores of other equally serious ail-
ments, are all manifestations of bad blood. For
over 50 yearn S. S. S. has been n mighty remedy
for these disorders. Thousands of men and
women have been relieved or actually cured by

ous tribute to S. S. 8. S. S. S. is purely

Railroad attroneys say this is
merely one of a series of alleged
"fake" personal injury cases, and
that, within the last five years roads
running into St. Joseph have been I.
mulcted in damages to the extent of i
$50,000 in this way. Most of, these ||
rases were settled out of court. The
personal "injury," which was the
basis of the $100,000 damage suit, is
alleged to have been incurred in the
ltock Island railroad yards in S4.
Joseph, tin; night of Dec. 28, 1914.
A freight train, on which George
A. Callicotte was brakeman, had just
pulled into the yards. The engineer
i .saw Callicotte fall from the side of
a t ar. As the train had come to a
standstill, the engineer went back and
lound Callicotte lying beside the
tracks, apparently suffering much
pain. He held in one hand the ' grab
iron" which had pulled from the side
of the car. The theory of the rail-
road company, as well as of the state,
i s that the screws were loosened by
human agency before Callicotte fell.
At his home, where he was taken
following the injury, Callicotte com-
plained of a pain in his back. Thirty
days after the "accident" paralysis of
the legs developed. Doctor Farber
vplained this in the trial by saying
that a clot of blood probably had
formed, and was pressing against the
The next step in the proceeding was
to file at $100,000 damage suit against
the Rock Island railroad, it being
(ontended in the petition that Calli-
cotte was totally and permanently
paralized below the wasit, as a re-
sult of an a< cident caused by the
i arelessness of the railroad company
in maintaining its equipment.
The case went to trial in June,
11)15, and lasted a week. Each morn-
ing the plaintiff was wheeled into the
court room in an invalid chair, on
which he lay at full length, covered
with a light blanket. The explanation
was that his legs were "dead." It was
all very pitiful, on the surface, and
tin spc< tat 1 ♦ • of the stricken man
dimmed to a lift; ot' invalidism, #no
doubt, made a marked impression on
the minds of the jury and it brought
in a verdict for the plaintiff, and as-
sessed his damages at $18,000. The
railroad company appealed.
Meanwhile Callicotte entered upon i^ouisvill
the routine of his daily life, and tn | India
the course of a few months the case
was forgotten. Even the secret ser-
\ ice department of the railroad seems
to have forgotten it for several
months. Then, in November of last
year, word reached the railroad at-
torneys that I allicotte was walking
about the house as though perfectly
sound, and that once each day it was
his custom to go out into the yard,
disguised as a woman! Ae such time
his wife always remained indoors.
Acting on this tip, the attorneys
communicated with the secret ser-
vice department of the railroad, ami
early in December 11. H. Germain of
Chit ago, head of the department, ar-
rived ami took charge of the case.
lie soon confirmed the tip as to Call-
iiotte's practices of taking exercise.
Then an arrest was planned.
A few minutes after 10 o'clock four
men plunged into the Callicotte yard.
There was Callicotte garbed in a pink
and white flowered kimono, with a
plaid shawl over his head, practical-
ly covering his face, and with a pair
of house slippers on his feet. Ho was
carrying a coal hod, and was on his
way for the day's supply of fuel.
Callicotte, seeing the officers, drop-
ped the hod and turned to run, but
tripped and fell practically into the
arms of the squad.
The state now has evidence that
Callicotte, both before antl after the
trial, was in the habit of walking
about the house. The window shades
were always drawn, and it is said to
have been Calllcotte's practice to
wear a nightgown about the house,
day and night, so he could got Into
betl quickly In case of visitors. An
account book seized by the officers
at the Callicotte house at the time of
his arrest shows that his lawyers had
advanced him $1,040, in $20 a week
installments on which he had lived
and supported his family. Callicotte
now walks without the slightest
trace of infirmity.
