Change For the Better.
Among the Improvements that will
bu made on the Baltimore and Ohio is
a radical change In the running of pas
senger trains. General Manager
Greene hus been investigating this
matter forborne time and contemplates
changing ne number of cars per train
so that they can make better time
going up the heavy grades, and as a
consequence will not run so fast com
Ing down. Now that the track has
been placed In a lirst-class condition
and new motive power purchased for
the passenger trains, Mr. Greene is of
the opinion that, by equalizing the
weight of the trains, a trip over the
Baltimore and Ohio will be made very
The Baltimore and Ohio track from
Chicago Junction to Chicago now ranks
as the finest in the west. It Is laid
with heavy steel rail and ballasted
with clean gravel, and as there are
very few curves on the line the trains
are enabled to make high speed with
Train 7, on the Baltimore and Ohio,
which Is the 60-hour fast freight from
New York to Chicago and St. Louis,
is now being run In three sections.
"I had sore hands for a loner time
and suffered a great deal. I saw an
advertisement of Hood's Sarsaparilla
and began taking it. My hands soon
began to get better and I have not had
any trouble with them since." Mrs.
Eva Moore, 3046 E. St., Philadelphia,
