Proves a Success.
fFrom the Elmlra Gazette.
Do you know Mr. J. 8. Bodder, of 214
South Main street? He has been a business
man and permanent resident of Elmlra for
over twenty years. A man whose state
ment cannot be disputed. Well, Mr. Hod
dens com In a nutshell Is that he has
been a sufferer from. kidney disorders,
but doesn't suffer any more. We will let
Win 'tell what has brought about the
ohangV Hera la how he spoke of his
cnae to our representative: "I have
never been well since the closing of the
war, whero, In. the service of my coun
try, I contracted kidney and bladder dis
orders. The complaint has gradually
been growing on me. I had sharp pains
In the small of my back.' Just back of the
hips, and when they left' It waa only to
be followed by a dull, heavy pain which
remained continually. I could lie In but
one or two positions In bed or the pain
would bo almost i unbearable I waa
always very sore over the kidneys, and
the urine emitted a strong odor At
tlmea I felt existence a task. I tried
this, that and the other thing, to no
avail, and waa on the verge of rfvlng up
entirely when I saw Doan's Kidney PHIb
advertised. I thought as a last resort I
would give them a trial; they were
highly recommended, and I would use
just thla one more remedy. I began
taking them, and I am very glad Indeed
to give my statement, that suffering
humanity may Yecelve the same benefit
I,, have. A few doses of Doan's Kidney
f llto eatisfletf rne they wee helping me.
Kowt the pain la ajl gone, ,and i am n.
Mrely well tlrls, after, years of atokness.

LIFE AND COST OF AN ENGINE.
The Exultant Start, ho Gradual Decline
and the Inevitable llrenk I p.
The cash value of a locomotive over
ages 110,000, and there are now In use
on the raHroada of the United Sltates
about 35,000 locomotives, representing
a total Investment of $:i.r,0.000,000. The
Pennylvanla raHroad stands at tihe
head of tihe list with 1,625 locomotives.
The New York Central Is not very far
behind with 1,200 locomotive. The
Erie railroad tea 664; tihe Louisville

The life of an ordinary locomatlve,
shining brass, glittering steel, Iron and
hard wood, is shorter than the life of
an individual, ami iltt In three divlrCons.
First, when, bright and new from the
machine shop, it Is run along the tracks
to the roundhouse, flags flying from t'he
cab and a broom or a horseshoe on the
cowcatcher for good luck.
The second stage Is when, after hav
ing hewn In active use, the outer gloss
Is dimmed by drlppflng oil and Its beauty
grimed by moke. 'However carefully
tended, however often repailred, and
however thoroughly overhauled, a lo
comotive engine after some period of
service becomes, es It were, a second
rate aiUrcle. It cannot make the long
rur.ci which were ponslMe formerly; it
cam-not make the Ihlffh standard raite of
speed; It oanot be used continually. A
fine rfocomotlve. such as "999" on the
New York Central, becomes so shaken
at last that the Intricate machinery
setimn to ge't out of gear. A freight lo
comotive, constructed for heavier bur
dens but less r.peed, is more durable,
but ceases flnallyto be powerful enough
for 1he trailns, which get longer and
heavier as the equipment of American
railroads Is Improved with heavier
rails. Iron bridges and trestles, and Im
proved brakes and car couplers. When
a locomotive, passenger or freight,
ceasca, through use, to belong In the
rst grade, It comes to be used eis an
auxiliary. The nassen'gif locomotive
formerly on express 'trains goes to the
way-train service; the freight locomo
tive comes to be used to reinforce an
other locomotive lu the freight service
on grades Where two are required.
In some railroads freight locomotives
come at last to be used for station or
roundhouse service the lowest grade
of all. Such locomotives "mates up"
trains, sMft oars to sAdlngfl, draw away
empty cars, and ure employed on re
pair or construction trains. When that
point is reached the useful days of a
railroad locossotlve are nearly -over.
What follows Is the breaking up of I he
engine dismantling it, K Is called I for
the old te l and Iron ix conjaiins. Mont
railroads, however, have for terminal or
stuitlon purpuSf s emaller and cheaper
locomotives, specially constructed for
that us, and these may easily be dis
tinguished by a traveler on account of
the little care given them by the engin
eer. They are useful and not ornamental.
WANT. FIELD SHOOTINO.
Fred lloey anJ I.Jgar Murphy Cumo Hero
for That Purpose.
In 8cranton for the next few days
will be seen two conspicuous characters
whose prominence extends possibly to
all parts of this country and Kurope.
where the doings of gentlemen sports
men are watched. They are Fred lloey
and Kdgar ..Murphy, the one a son of the
late Jmhii lloey, who was president of
the Adams Kxpress eonrpany, the other
Kdgar G. Murphy, son of the late Sen
ator Murphy, of .New York city, whose
memory should not be confused wfth
the living Senator 'Murphy, of Troy.
' The two young men ure well known
on account of their lineage, of course,
but In addition they are well known as
two of the four champion gentlemen
pigeon sihots of the world and they are
here to hunt partridges for pleasure
with Patrolmnn Tom Lewis, of the
police department: Harry I). Swartx,
A. C. Morris amd Clem Marsh, Jr., four
Scranton Individuals whose handiwork
with the gun at trups and In the field
Is well known In this section. The New
York men are stopping nt the Wyo
ming, which will be their headquarters
during the week, their plan being 'to
start out early each morning for the
woods and to return each night.
Young lloey. Is only 25 years of age
nnd beRan trap shootlng five years ago.
He Is of Independent fortune and dur
ing fie past three years has won with
his gun what would be a mint' of money
to even a fairly well-to-do citizen of
Scranton, yet it !s a curious fact that
he has never shot at a bird In the
woods "field" shooting, as It Is termed
In the vetnncular of the trap men.
He went to Europe t'hlis year, where
the cracks greeted his youthful ap
pearance with smllm and put him down
as an easy one to beat, but the opinion
changed when he won the Grand Prix,
the most famous nhootlng event on the
continent, and was one' of the four to
divide the flnt prize of 20,000 francs In
the great-Monte Carlo match. This last
feat Is all the more wonderful consid
ering that the young American reached
the famous little principality only a few
hours before the match opened.
Before returning 'to America he prac
tically defeated everybody who finally
had the temerity to meet him. He was
Invited to come to Scranton by Mr.
Murphy, who has pleasant recollections
of a bird hunting expedition here last
Murphy Also a Winner.
Mr. Murphy Is no less a personage
with the shotgun than Is his companion.
He Is a few years older than .Mr. Hoey,
Is big, stalwart, handsome, ruddy
faced nnd with Hoey, George Work and
Mr. Thompson. Is one of the famous
quartette which iNew York swelldom
and clubdom is willing to back for any
amount against any like number of
amateur or professional pigeon shots
that the world can produce. Clubdom
has done this many times and clubdom
has won oftener than it has lost, until
now the professionals are chary of go
ing against the swells.
"Cholly Knickerbocker," the eccentric
snap-shot writer, mentions In yester
day's New York Recorder a wager
made In Delmonlco's between George
Work and Crelg Colt, a cousin of the
late.Caldwell H. Colt, who was commo
dore of the Larohmont Yacht club.
"Cbolly" was mistaken In saying the
two Colts were brothers but, that has
nothing to da with the wager. Mr.
Colt said he was Willing to bet tl.000
against $500 that he could name a pro
fessional whom Mr. 'Work could not de
feat. The bet was accepted and now
the clubs are waiting to know 'Mr.
Colt's candidate. It is expected he will
name "Jack" Brewer. If this Is the
man, Mr. Work's friends are willing to
wager even money and give the choice.
Will Visit Spring Ilrook Today.
Today the New Yorkers will, with the
Scranton gunners, 'tramp the mountains
In Spring Brook township.
(Meanwhile the swells in New York
are holding their breath until they hear
that their two fellows can really kill
b'rds "In the field."

A meeting of Indoor base ball enthu

with the plans for organizing a winter

which has from time to time been not

Invitations have been extended to
representatives of the West Side, South
Side, North iKnd and central city to at
tend the meeting, but Its promoters are
anxious that any young men Interested
In athletics shall be present. The meet

reveal' whatever enthusiasm Is felt on
the subject and' will In a measure de
cide whether or not the league shall be
It Is probable that the central city
team will be composed of members of
the Young Men"s Christian association.
The' West Side team will be managed
by Emmet Rogers, and Marty Swift
has been asked to guide the fortunes of
the North End aggregation. Since the
project was first mentioned In The
Tribune It has received the attention of
the gentemcn atihletes in all sections
of the city. Numerous Inquiries have
been made and Other evidences offered
that Scramton will see and enjoy the
new and popular winter pport.
It has been suggested that the plans
may be spoiled by the absence of suita
ble large halls, but these fears can be
dispelled by the knowledge that In

space. The question of space for spec
