It Is Im possible for railroad* to earn enough to supply the necessary new facilities from current revenue. They must be provided from cred it Investor» can not he coerced, but must Is* attracted.” Among the conditions affecting rail road credit which deter Investors he mentioned the following: “ Flrat, Railroad revenues are not controlled by Investors, but are llxed and limited by governmental authority , and not by one but by several govern- j mental authorities, which do not recog nlzo responsibility for assured results to Investors and are uncoordinated "Second, Railroads cannot control and the government cannot and doe» not limit the expense account. "Third. The present system of regu latlon Is based on a policy o f regulation and correction and not on a isillcy of helpfulness and encouragement. “ Fourth, The outstanding obligations | of the railroads have already exceeded i the tlnam-ial rule of safety and Involve a disproportionate amount of ohllga ! tlons bearing fixed charges. “ Fifth, The Investor must accept a aulmrdlnato obligation or security with no assurance of a surplus of earnings to support It. “ Sixth, Other competitive lines of In veatment present superior attractions. “ Seventh, The railroad business |s ! largely controlled by political Instead o f business considerations. Look Forward, Not Back, _ i "W e may debate about whnt has | caused the present conditions,” said Mr Thom, “ but we cannot debate about what the people need. The Pres'dent has taken the view that we must look forward If» thla matter and ‘mako a fresh assessment, o f circumstances' In order to deal helpfully and Intelligent ly with the problem. Abuses are no more prevalent In the railroad busi ness today than In any other btialneas humanely conducted.

I f the regulation o f transpor tation facilities privately owned should fall government ownership must fol low, and then all power o f the states over the railroads would disappear. "L e t ua debate this question, then, not upon any mere theory or Jealousy as to the distribution of governmental power, but upon the large Issue o f | what the public tntereat requires In respect of the assurance o f transportation service.” adequate F A L L S C IT Y N E W S Worth Knowing °°Ü3i?[h‘=>3Ca©[p raa8oaò ao(3 M q ïï M Q q q î ? s fq The constant strain of factory work very often results in Headaches, Backaches and other Aches, and also weak ens the Nerves.

HOUSEKEEPERS Must be Watchful For great efforts are being made in this vicinity to sell baking powders of inferior class, made from alum acids and lime phosphates, both undesir able to those who require high-grade cream of tartar baking powder to make clean and healthful food. The official Government tests have shown Royal Baking Powder to be a p ure, h ealth fu l, grap e cream of ta r ta r baking p o w d e r , of h i g h e s t strength, and care should be taken to prevent the s u b s titu tio n of an y other brand in its place. Royal Baking Powder costs only a fair price per pound, and is cheaper and better at its price than any other baking powder in the world. PACE 3 T h e Devil s Climb H ow a M a n W o n ,a Bride by Scaling It. By MILLARD MALTBIE ii------------ -------------------------------------------------------------- H There w ai or appeared to be every reason why A m « Hteele should marry Eva Cowles. Neither had a large for tune, but each bad a small one, and the two together would produce an Income sufficient to enable them to maintain the social position to which they had been accustomed. Tbetr fa thers bad been partners In business and on ibis account some of tbelr In vestments were on Joint account aud needed to remain so hi order to be made profitable. There w a« but one tblug to keep them apart. While Amos Kteele was endowed with a lot of practical com mon sense Kva Cowles was Intensely romantic. Thera was In her a good deal o f that Herman element which loves tal-s o f valiant knlghta who fight for fair women. She doted on mys tery, on sentiment. She delighted In the o|«ru* o f Ittchard Wagner, not be cause she loved tbe music, for It did not ap[H-al to her. but because the Ihemes are based on some fantastic tale about a Lohengrin or a Flying Dutchman. Steele was anxious for tbe match, not only because It would be advanta gcous tu both, but liecause ICva wa* a ‘ harming girl, and he wanted her for a wife. ( A fter the usual gifts o f such trumpery as a woman may accept from a man - probably because It may be swept out within a few days after Its reception without material loss— he proposed. He looked upon nothing with ralnliow eyes and doubtless his declaration was matter o f fact. He could not lie anything else. Eva admired her suitor for his real worth, but a proposition which dwelt mainly on tbe advantages to be gained by troth parties was repulsive to her. Khe rejected Amos, and when he press ed her for a reason she told him plain ly that the man she married must love her better than his life; must be w ill ing to endure poverty with her; must be ready to defend her b» case o f ne cessity w ith his heart's blood. Amos undertook to break down this opposition by making light of It. " I fear you h aT e been rending ro mantic stories,” he said to her. “ There Is no romance In America. In Europe they have their legends of heroes and heroines, their Sir Galahads, their L»relels, their th ou san d aud one tm possibilities In America we h a v e only the Salem w itch e s, which, being old women riding on broomstick*, are not pleasing to contemplate. Besides, all these beautiful fancies wither before an empty stomach or a h o le In one’s stocking. W hy do we call that period o f Intense affection between newly- married persons the honeymoon?” "Because It Is very sweet, l suppose." “ Very sweet and very fleeting. A moon lasts but twenty-eight days. No one expects the exul>erance o f love to endure more than a month." "The man I marry must love me forever, his love growing stronger ev ery hour, every day, every month, ev ery year. He must be , man o f cour age, ready to strike at any moment lu my defense. I think I shall marry a soldier, tall, handsome” — "Suppose he gets bis nose shot off?" "H e will woo me by diving to bring me i<earls; he will climb mountains, standing on giddy heights to show that he can look upou an abyss without fear.” "W h y not marry a man in a flying 1 machine?” "Enough o f this," said Eva sharply. " It is evident that you and I are not fitted for each other. I wish a man to lift me up, not to drag me down. With you I should always feel that I was chained to earth.” It was evident to Amos that he was gaining nothing. lu fact, the more he endeavored to instill the practical Into the girl he wanted tbe more be seemed to antagonize her. He took leave of her and went away sorrowful. Amos had an uncle whom he was very much like In Ills nonappreclatlon o f the romantic, only the uncle was experienced, while \mos was not. HLs uncle was manager o f Amos’ property and would remain ao until the heir be came thirty years old. The guardian bad favored the match, and at Amos' failure he reported It to his unde, glv. Ing the cause. "M y boy,” replied the older man, "never oppose a woman. With the aofter sex one must stoop to conquer. You made a mistake In ridiculing Eva's sentimentality. Yon should not only have appeared to appreciate It. but have In every case gone her one better. Y'ou must take a hack track.” " I f I recall what I have said I shall receive only contempt.” “ Never mlud what you have said. Our words are of little moment beside our acts. Contrive a scene In which you wlfl Jump In the water to save aome one'* life.” f “ I can't swim." "W ear something buoyant under your clothing.” . "Whose life shall I save? Persons won't fall Into the water especially to enable a man to show his prowess In saving them.” “ Oh, a dummy will do. How do you suppose they contrive to have persons wrecked on trains, drowned In sunken boats, blown up In powder magazines for the mot lea?” “ I never thought o f th at” “ And you a practical man? Doii't talk aliout failure with a woman when an uuodu'-aied movie manager will succeed with the whole world. You mint marry F,va and marry her a* aoon aa possible The Tenth street prrqierty which yon and Evs own H o lly must either lie owned by both as one or divided T o divide it would be ruin. Come! Bestir yourself ” "I'll see what I can do,” replied Amos a* be atrode away thoughtfully. Amos and Eva lived In a hilly roun try that In part might be called mouri There was one place called talDoua. (be lie v ir* Climb becau«e an ambitious youth had lost bis Ilf* trying to get up It. Amos was driving past It one day when be saw a man scaling It like a rat. Indeed, while be climbed with tbe agility o f a cat, be seemed to be endowed with Invisible wings. He not only climbed, be flew. No part o f tbe cliff waa so perpendicular that he could not mount It. A t times It seemed be was about to fall backward and be mangled on rocks a ^hundred feet be low, but he always caught, sometimes on the edge o f a landing above him; sometimes be would draw himself up by a tw ig that seemed too slender to sustain a kitten. Yet np be went, sur mounting every difficulty, till be reach ed the summit, then turned and, at- Nuniliig/» theatrical attitude, took off hla ban and waved It to Imaginary per sons » l o w . As loon as he had achieved bis ex ploit a group o f persons who had beeu stnudlng near liegan to shout and wave to him to tbe music o f a movie cam era which had l>een set up near enough for Amos to hear. Then, the abow be ing over, the players moved away. Then Amos, looking about him, saw things that he bad not noticed before. Several cameras were being removed aud placed In vehicles. A man on top of the cliff was taking down a sort of derrick that had been hidden from view, while one at the bottom was coll ing a wire and taking apart an ap paratus similar to that above. A man was directing the transfers, aud Amos approached him. "The man who climbed the cliff was pulled up by a wire, I presume?” he sa Id. "/ust so; and s donkey engine. There It Is going Into that wagon.” “ Could I secure this paraphernalia and these men to hoist me up there?” “ I rck on you can If you want to pay for It.” “ What would It coat?" "W ell. I reckon about a hundred dol lar»." "I'll pay you the hundred dollars If you'll permit me to choose my own time. Would I need any practice?" "Y'ou could do a better Job by having had practice, but It Isn't absolutely necessary.” Amos paid tbe mau $20 on account, and he agreed to tie on hand with the apparatus set up the following after noon at 4 o'clock The next day Amos took Eva to ride and directed his car to the Devil's Climb. On reaching n point a few hundred yards from It Amos pulled up and, assuming au air of Injured Inno cence, thus addressed her: “ Y'ou have thought proper to Im pugn my courage You have Intimated that I am nothing better than a worm o f tbe dust. Y'ou have said that you wished some one for a husband who would elevate, not drag, you to earth. This, coming from one I love better than my life, has blighted It. It Is no -value to me. I am going to risk It to convince you that I am a mau. not a coward." Jumping from the car, he ran to ward the Devil's Climb. Reaching a point directly beneath It, he paused and looked up. H e was doing some thing w-ith his hands, but Eva could not discern what It was. He hooked a wire to a belt under his shoulders. Then he liegan to climb. “ Great heavens!” cried Eva. "Is he going to try to scale that cliff?” Amos sprang lightly over the lower rocks, which were comparatively easy to scale. Then he reached a per|>en- dtcular rock higher than his head, lie sprang up, clutched It, and tn another moment stood upon It. The ascent now liecame more difficult, but the more difficult It was the easier It seemed for him. When be was nearing the top he stopped beueath a straight up and down face In the rock and carefully placed a foot In a cavity. Then catch ing a slight projection he placed the other foot on a similar support. Ho was midway up the face o f the rock when he fell backward. Eva gave a shriek loud enough to wake the dead and covered her eyes with her hands. In a moment she took them away and looked again. Heaven be praised! Amos had been caught by a scrub tree growing out of the face o f the cliff. Giving a spring, he seemed to fly back to the cliff slightly below the rock from which he had fallen and proceeded to make a second attempt to scale It. Eva shouted to him to stop. Wheth er or not he heard her he paid no at tention to her. This time he succeed ed In standing npon a narrow landing and resumed hla ascent. He was saved from another fall by setting a projecting root; he slipped, he staggered, he caught at what seem ed straws, and nil the while Eva wa? watching him in agony. At last hi stood upon the summit. He was about to descend by the »ame route he had come up when Eva sprang from the car and ran towan’ him, beseeching him not to do so. T l:' time he heard her and came down slope at the side o f the cliff, whk was an easy descent. Eva threw h- arms about him and went Into tu terics. The next day Am o» Informed lil- unrie that the wedding day had beer fixed. )ro fC 06 lo n a l C a r t e pii vain ax F. M. HELLWARTH PHYSICIAN AND SURGEON O ffice one door east o f I*.
