DIDyouever bear of a railway presi
dent running aa flrsman on an stv
Kine? Well, I know of on who did,
and, if you've got time to liatea to It,
1 will tell you the story now.
It ws in the summer of 188J that I
u firing on a slnKle track line that
runs up from Junction City through
Georgetown, a matter of 110 mile.
The line wae owned mostly by a niaa
named. Tliedford, whii preaident
and superintendent all in on.
I had leen firing on the line for two
yea re bark; oil the time with one en
gineer, Hob Hunter by name, and a
finer man never lived.
I suppose it would be only natural
for me to speak well of Dob, anyway,
for I was elean head over ears in love
with baa pretty daughter Molly, and
was ouly waiting for a bit of rise in
my pay to make her Mrs. Martin.
Though I didn't are any chance for
that rise where I was, I didn't like to
leave and go on another line, for that
would take me away from Molly.
One day Hob says to me:
"Jim, ain't you and Molly never go
ing to get married?"
"Just as soon as I can get my rise,"
says I; "but I don't sea how I'm going
to get it here."
"Why don't you go and ask Silly T"
You st-e, Hilly was always what we
called Mr. Thedford behind hia hack,
of course for we were mighty polite
to his facs.
"He won't do anything for mi,"
saya I, "for you know either one of
the cleaners up to Georgetown would
be glad enough to jump into my place,
and he ain't going to give me a rise Jus
to please me."
"Well," says Hob, "It won't do any
hurt to try it."
Ho next tiny I washed up and went
to the company's olllce, and asked for
Mr. Thrdford. After a few minutes he
sent won! to me that he would see uiu,
and in I went.
"Whnt is It, my manf I'm very
busy," says he.
Ho I up and told him what I wanted.
"How much are you getting now?"
"Forty-five dollars a month," says I.
Then he pursed up his lips, and
hemmed and hawed a little and says!
"I don't see how we can give you
anything more, my good fellow. You
aee yours is not a very responsible po
sition; merely one that requires a lit
tle bodily strength. And we can find
plenty of men who would be only too
glad to take your place at that sal
ary." With that he turned to letter he
was writing, and I knew I had no more
business there. I tell you I felt sore
to be told it didn't take much to know
how to fire an engine, and I rame
ntlghty near throwing my job up and
trying to get on another Una. Hut
Molly persuaded ma to hold on a lit
Now, before I com to the particu
lar point of this yarn, I want to tell
you a little about this line. I have said
It was a single track one, running
from Junction City to Georgetown.
The latter place was little town of
ftUO or duo Inhabitants; but In summer
a great many people cam up there,
and ao I suppose the line paid.
Anyhow, Tliedford, who had a sum
mer place there, was rich enough to run
It for hiiikielf if he wauled to.
Hob lived at Georgetown and I
boarded with him. Our tripe began
at eight In the morning, and we gener
ally ran the 110 mllrS In five houre.
Then at three In the afternoon w
cum back, getting home at eight.
As soon as we reached the round
house nt Georgetown our day' work
was over, for the cleaners took the
engine then, cleaned and polished her,
and laid the fire all ready to start the
'U, as I said, I hung on to my job,
hoping that aomrthlng would turn up
that would give ma a lift, till one day
The whole summer had been uncom
mon hot, but that day went ahead of
anything I ever saw. Of course, while
we were running we had a breece, but
the minute we stopped it seemed as If
we were In a furnace, and, naturally,
working near a hot fire didn't improve
On the home trip Hob waa taken
sick, and had all he could do to hold
out till we got to the home station,
when he got home tie eoon aa nasihle.
After the train wna emptied I ran
the engine to the roundhouse, eipmt
lug to go straight home and wash up.
Hut when I ran the engine In the
first thing I saw was my two eleaiiers
laid out on a heap of ashes, dead
Here was a pretty mesa, for It would
certainly take me until midnight to

Scott's emulsion is cod-liver
oil prepared for the stomach.
Let cod-liver oil alone if you
need it. When your physician
orders toast, do you breakfast
on flour ?
Pure cod-liver oil is hard to

"What good'll that do me?" says he.
"I've been away for two days, and
only just now got the telegram. If
Hunter waa here he might get me
down; but, a it ia, I may as well go
home and let the money go."

"Can you do It?" says he. "He mem

ao you have only two and a half hours
to make the run that generally takas

"I esn do It." says I, "If you will Jump

No sooner said than dune, and in ten
minutes we bad the old euglawon the
turntable, turned her around and
If the road waa rough when we ran
at our usual speed, that night, making
double time, it was just awful. As we
flew around the curves it seemed as If
we should lose the track at every turn
of the drivers, and the poor old ma
chine rocked and swsyed so that, used
a I was to it, I could hardly kerpon
my seat by the lever.
Jf it waa hard on me, what must It
have been to poor old Hilly? I could
hardly keep from laughing in his face
as I watched him and heard Mm
groan as he handled the heavy sticks
wa used for fuel.
The heat of the weather, added to
that of the furnace and the unuaiiiil
work, made him look aalf lie was In a
Turkish bath. The water ran down
his face, his stiiT white oollar hung
down on his shoulders like a wet rng
and his beautiful smooth shirt bosom
looked aa If some one hsd thrown a
pail of dirty water over him. -
His hands were torn and rut from
handling the wih.i1, and take it alto

Once in awhile I had tu about at hi in to
lay the wood even in the furnace, mid

Whenever he tried to rest I told lilin
we were lining steam, and if he wained
to rateh that train he mustn't idle over
If I had thought to hitch a cat on
when we started we should have ruu
much smoother; but It was too late to
think of that now, and soon we ruihed,
now through woodlands, now past
grain fWlda, lurching first to one aide
and then to uhe other, until I espected
every minute to land wrong side up
in the dltoh.
However, lurk was with us that night,
soil we pulled up at Junction City at
juet 11.' Poor old Hilly could hardly
limb down from the engine, but be
managed to gasp out:

I tvdd Hob about my trip nest day,
and thought he would die laugtiitig to

"IT FELT LIKE A HAND
Many men and women will recognize in
that description a sensation which they have
experienced, and will recall the terrifying
feeling of suffocation which accompanied it.
That convulsive tightening about the heart
is naturally alarming, because it indicates
Bomo form of heart "trouble," and because,
of the number of those whose sudden deaths
are ascribed by physicians to "heart failure."
The frequency of the
heart failure and weak
,l.,ii nnvoin. who has
The heart is the hardest worked organ of the
human body. It beats on an average of 'seventy
times a minute from the minute of birth to the
minute of death. Every half minute or every thirty
second beat the whole of the blood in the body is pumped
through the heart, so that the dual heart moves about six tons
of blood in each twenty-four hours. On the purity of that
blood health depends. On the strength of the heart depends
the strength of the body.
The question then is, how can we keep the blood pure and
the heart strong? That, question answers itself when wa
know what is the common cause of the blood's impurity, and
whence arises the tendency to heart " trouble." What is blood ?
Blood is only digested food. In proportion as food is nutritious
the blood is rich. In proportion as the food is properly digested
the blood is pure. Indigested food clogs and corrupts tho
blood, and indigestion often precedes or attends the first symp
toms of heart "trouble." The first necessity to the production of
pure blood is, that the stomach and other organs of digestion and
nutrition shall be in the perfect working order of sound health, so that
the food received into the stomach is properly digested and perfectly assimi
lated. I'or the stomach is the vital center of the body. Xo man is stronger
than his stomach, because physical strength is derived from food digested
and assimilated. Deaths ascribed to weak heart and "heart failure," therefore,
are more properly ascribed to weak stomach and stomach failure.
It is this dependence of the heart upon the stomach which explains the cures of
"heart trouble" effected by the use of Dr. Tierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
This medicine cures diseases of the stomach and other organs of digestion and
nutrition. It purifies the blood, eliminating from it the substances which corrupt
and poison it. Even this alone would take the strain from the overtaxed heart.
IJttt Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery also acts directly upon the heart itself.
It strengthens the heart's action. It contains one of the best. and most efficient
heart tonics known to medical practice, and as a natural consequence the use of
"Golden Medical Discovery" has resulted in many notable cures of tho heart
when it has become involved in disease as the consequence of disease of tho stom
ach and other organs of digestion and nutrition. It removes tho predisposing
cause of heart trouble and makes tho weak heart strong.
Mr. John L. Coughenour, of Clensavage, Somerset Co., Pa., writes: "I had been doctoring
for nliout a year and a half, being unable to work most of the time. The doctor said I had
heart disease and indigestion; It liegan with a choking and oppressed feeling in the chest;
later on l was troubled with a hungry feeling, and 1 seemed to be raw from my throat clear
down into my stomach. My npjietite was unusually poor, and I was as weak and nervous as
though 1 had been starved out for months, and my heart kept throbbing continually, and I
was short of breath. Finally, I wrote to you for advice, and you informed me that I had
indigestion and torpid liver. I did not think your diagnosis was right, but I ordered six
bottles of 'Golden Medical liiscovcry,' and began its use. After using three bottles I began
to improve slowly and soon went to work, and I have been working ever since. My health
continues good. I have no more throbbing or palpitation of heart."
" 1 had lieen a great sufferer for several years, nnd my family doctor said I would not be a
living man in two years, but, thank God, I am still living," writes Mr. George W. Trustow
of Lipscomb, Augusta Co., Va. "Or. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is what saved mv
life. I had heart trouble so had that I could not lie on mv left side without a great deal of
pain. I was nearly past work when I commenced vour medicine, but I can do about as much
work now as any man. I cannot say too much for the benefit I have received "
