Hen. Albert E. Mead, governor of this state, in his annual message to the legislature, January 15th, 1907, made the following recommendation: • "One of the most vital commercial and financial problems confronting our manufacturers and shippers of alr kinds is that of the failure of common carriers'within the state to perform the functions for which they were created and in consideration of which performance they were g'anted their privileges, and for the performance of which the public by its Support makes their existence possible. "From all reliable information and data obtainable I am of the opinion that three direct causes for this fail- ure exist: First, lack of sufficient rolling stock, commonly referred to as car shortage; second, lack of sufficient motive power; third, lack of sufficient transportation facilities, particularly in the way of terminals, sidings and additional tracks. "The railroads, off one hand, contend that the locomotive works, car works and car manufactories have been un- able to fill their orders although such orders have been properly and timely placed. They further contend that by reason of the many opportunities presented to laboring men as a result of our general prosperity it has been impossible to obtain labor with which to construct additional tracks, termi- nals and sidings. "Shippers, on the other hand, and notably those engaged in the shipment ef lumber products and wheat, con- tend that these same conditions, in a greater or lesser degree, have existed for the last ten years, and that the railroads are, therefore, at fault for having constantly failed during such period"properly to anticipate the fu- ture tonnage. "Shippers further contend that the real difficulty lies in' the railroads com- pelling them .to insure the carriers against possible loss incident to what might prove to be an over-investment in rolling stock and motive power. The shippers assert that it is the pol- icy of the transportation companies never to invest more capital in rolling stock and motive power than is neces- sary to remove the entire tonnage in twelve months; in other words, never to have so many cars and engines on hand that there would be danger of some of them being idle for any pe- riM., "Such a policy might be sound were the commerce of the state moved in a steady," well-balanced and well-distrib- uted manner but we all know that such a balance does not exist; that the salmon pack, the cereal lrops and even manufactured forest products move less at one time of the year than at others, and hence a congestion in transportation is inevitable at the moving times under the existing sys- tem. "Be this as i,t may, the result is that every man, woman and child within the state is affected by reason of the traffic resictions placed upon the shipper, whereby he is unable to con- duct his business as his necessities re- quire. Many of the most active and promising communities within the state are supported almost entirely by one or more lumber or shingle mills. When the mill must close all the labor- ing men in that community are thrmwn out of work, while the grocer and every line of trade suffer the most ex- treme results. The same is equally true of the eastern part of the state. When the wheat must stand up on the platforms" at the risk of the elements, or in warehouses for a considerable length of time, everyone in •every line of business connected, with the com- munity from which the wheat is ship- ped is injuriously affected. "We must, therefore, have. some .remedy which will afford that protec- tion of their translmrtation facilities to which all shippers are entitled, and in my judgment it seems that a good and safe step taken in that direction would be. the enactment of what is known/as the 'reciprocal demurrage law,' drawn, if possible, in such a man- ner that it will be effective for intra- state business even should the courts uItinaately h01d it ineffectual as to in- terstate business."

THEY WERE ALL SKINNERS. 3&'by Nothing Could Be Done Vlth Missouri Tiznber Thieves. Having been notified that some one was cutting titnber on a piece of land I owned in Missouri, I auade quite a Iourney to investigate the matter• I found the information to be correct and I found a farmer near by who ap- peared willing to more. "Yes, I reckon I know who .stole your timber," he replied to my ques- tion. "The first I knowed about it was when I saw old Jim Skinner chopping in your woods. I asked him what he was a-doing there and he told me to go to tim devil." I put down Jim Skinner's name and my informant continued: "Soon after that I saw Tom Skinner hauling out wood and I asked him what he was a-doing on another man's land, and he told me to go to the devil• Got thqt down?" "Yes•" "Then I saw IIank Skinner hauling out thnber to make a barn and1 asked him who gave him permission to cut and he told me to go to the devil• Itank Skimler it was." "I've got it so." "Then Pete Skinner comes along and cuts down about fifty trees and makes saw logs and has 'em hashed up into boards for a house. He wgts getting out the logs one day when I asked him if he had a permit and he told me to • go to the.devil." .'o One "tVho Is Anybody Will Stoop [ "1 see." - to Manual Labor.

To do any klnd of housework cannot be con- sidered by the lady of the house• She sits in the parlor dressed in loose gar- ments and spends much of the day in idly reeking to and fro in a rocking chair. When she goes out shopping, either she is accompanied by a servant who carries her small purchases or shc hires a boy to carry them for her. If "You never could make• it stick in this world, sah."

Apples and the Throat. By ordering his )attents to eat heart- Ily of certain fruits and forbidding them to touch others at all, Dr. Nadai, one of Paris' most famous scientists, is treating the throats of the great opera singers. There is no mdleine at all in his treatment. In some cases he adds nothing to the patient's diet and secures results by forbidding them to eat apples and pears. According to Dr. Nadal an apple or pear each day is ertough to keep the sensltlve throat out of order all the time• k singer of course notices the first symptom of throat disorder in the form of conges- tion of the vocal cords. " These, instead of being white and thin, like a tendon, become red and swollen with rouges, tlon of blood• The high notes become difficult and the quality of the voice is Impaired. Librarians nd Liberia. The Amerlcau l, ibrary association lately held a meeting at Narragansett Pier. Among the persons in attend- ance on the proceedings was a buxom lady of color, who took a prominent seat and listened to all that went on with an air of evideut pride. As she did not appear to be a regular dele- gate she was finally questioned re- gar.dlng her identity and revealed her- self as a fairly well known laundress of the place• Further questioning brought out the fact that she had mis- taken the librarians for a mission from Liberia. The Joke is perhaps in part upeu the liorarlans, whose debates aud literary performances had not in the least served to dispel her illusion.-- Bookman. . good memory is one that enaoles a man to forget the things he doesn't care to recollect. • I a man dldu't make an occasional mistake hls food friends wouldn't haw occasion to c, rltlcise hlm.--Chlcago J News. had to say about the news I told You? --Fliegende Blatter.

"On the other hand," Dr. Tuller con- tinued. "I feel called ltpon to say in this connection that the obligations of the members of the household are no less than those of the nurse• "You are sent to the lmtient's side to administer in a scientific manner things impossible for them to do. There will be moments when neither wishes nor direct demands on you should make you swerve from your duties. But even If such momeuts arrive re- mcmber that from the point of view of the family what they ask is wlmt they think Is for the good of their dear OUe. • "That ts the occasion when you can show your character iu the truest light.

It may be vital in the case of a child. Proper food, good vcntilation, and dry, warm clothing are the proper safe- guards against colds• If they are main- tained through the changeable weather of autumn, .winter and spring, the chances of a surprise from ordinary colds will be slight. But the ordinary light cold will become severe if neglect- ed, and a well established ripe cold is to the germs of diphtheria what honey is to the bee. The greates$ menace to child life at this season of the year is the neglected cold." Whether i is a child or adult, tile cold slight or severe. the very best treatment that curt be adopted is to gi'e Chamberlain's Couh Remedy.
