Seattle, Wash., July 14.— Lum ber­
men report that the industry is as
badly paralyzed as before the recent
rate decision by the interstate com ­
merce com mission, on account o f ru­
mors that the railroads are con tem ­
plating enjoining the decision o f the
com m ission in the federal courts. If
this should be done, the effect would
probably be to continue for possibly-
as long as tw o years the uncertainty
prevailing previous to the decision.
Robert B. Allen, associate editor of
the Pacific Lumber Trade Journal,
said yesterday that he had been in­
form ed on reliable authority that the
either to take a straight appeal to the
federal courts or to enjoin the de­
cision of the com m ission. The for­
mer course would leave the rates es­
tablished by the com m ission in force
pending the decision o f the appeal,
which the lumbermen state would not
seriously embarrass them in going
ahead in securing business and resum­
ing the industry.
An injunction, on the other hand,
would probably result in a continu­
ance of the business on a bond basis,
which would force the lumbermen to
make all shipments under bond to pay
the higher rate should the courts
finally overthrow the decision of the
interstate com m erce com mission.

Save the Babies.
NT ANT MOKTAUTY is something frightful. We can hardly realize thet of
all the children bom in civilized countries, twentytwo per ccnt^, or nearly
one-quarter, die before they reach one year; thirtyseven per cent., or more
than one-third, before they are five, and one-half before they are fifteen 1
.We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castoria would save a mar
jority of these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these
infantile deaths are occasioned by the uso of narcotic preparations. Drops, tinctures
and soothing syrups sold for children’s complaints contain more or less opium, or
morphine. They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons. In any quantity
they stupefy, retard circulation and lead to congestions, sickness, death. Castoria
operates exactly the reverse, but you must see that it bears the signature of
Chas. H. Fletcher. Castoria causes the blood to circulate properly, opens the
pores of the skin and allays fever.
