Place to use the little individual houses

wheeled out in the water by a horse
driven by a man employed for that
purpose. The steps dre let down ftom
the Uttle house, and tbo bather enters
the' Water without having to prome--

bath the-bather mount* the steps into
his little bouse and, calling the driver
again, has his dressing room hauled up
high and dry on*tbe ahc-re, where, bnv-

different creature from the radiant be

wailing mourner with heaving’sighs and
shaking sobs. His: promised bride had
coldly jilted him and had married a

ENGINE TRANCE.. .
A Sort' of Temporary Paralypln. That
Sometimes Afecti Track Men.
’The numerous fatal accidents report
ed in the newspapers to rail layers that
occur every year on the various rail
road systems throughout the country
are not In every case due. tf ia gen
erally supposed by the public, to neg
ligence or carelessness on the frart of
the workers themselves.” said .0 New
York physician and surgeon employed
by the New York Central railroad.
“The fact is, the hearing of these
men in time becomes affected owing
to the constant stooping pdsitUMi which
they are obliged to assume in laying
the rails, patting the bolts in, etc., and
that renders them often oblivions, to
approaching trains, notwithstanding
the fact that they work In' gangs and
have lookout men near at hand; Art-
Other fact which Ts'accountable lt»
many instances for fatal accidents to
rail layers is what is known among
the men themselves ns ‘engine trance.'
This 1 might describe inorc clearly as
a temporary sort of paralysis which aft
fects siraulfaneously both the mind
and budy. The ‘stroke* lasts only a
few seconds, but those few soconds
mean life or death when a fast train Is
approaching. . */1
“A rail layer who may be in perfect
physical condition is hot proof against
the powerful fascination as he gazes
along the rails and sees an engine
with its row of riirs coining toward
him at express speed. Although be lias
been warned by the lookout and the
shouts of his fellow^-of the ; approach
ing danger, he will ipay no heed, hut
stand spellbound for ah Instant- And
that inshtot’a delay 1s generally fatal,
or, if not Jt results in the amputation
of a leg. . ,
‘♦There are few rail layits who have
not. they will tell you. experienced this
peculiar trance at; pne. tlme^or another
during their careers on. the track. An!
mals are also subject to ‘engine trance.’
particularly dogs atul cats, and that no
doubt accounts to some extent for- the
Iar^e number of them as well as other
animals that are killed on the railroad.’*

Now, lard, as you know, is mads from hog fat. It may or may
bs purs, Cottolene is always pure, because it contains nothing but
osd vegetable oil and choice beef suet. It is always uniform, and
guarantee the quality. Besides, it is nsver sold in bulk likt lard,
v comes in sealed tin pails, and.is hot open to contamination. So
ch for purity and healthfulness. ■ - ' •
As to sconomy—Cottolene is richer than lard. It rsquires, therefore,
two-thirds the quantity to secure better results. This means economy.
