Episode In the Career of Robt. Garrett,
Son of J no. W. Jarrett, Fonnder of
America's "ldest Railway.
It is not generally known that a sin
gle bottle of champagne sealed the
fate of Robt. Garrett, changed his
life, cauesd him to become a recluse
and finally sent him to a mid-house
and to the grave disgraced and the
Baltimore & Ohio Railroad to wreck
and ruin. This bit of history is
not generally kt,own( but is, never
theless, one of the dramatic instan
ces in the annals of railroad making
in this country. Attention was
called to the matter by the recent
celebration of the &0th birthday of
America's oldest railway, the B. & O.
The Baltimore and Ohio is the
oldest steam railroad in America.
The first stoneon Its roadbed was
laid in this city on the Fourth of
July, 1828, with elaborate cere
mony. Over its original length of
nine miles mules dragged its cars.
Then Peter Cooper, a manufacturer
of New York, brought to Baltimore
a steam engiue a curious concern,
something like a boiler with a stove
pipe in it. And Cooper's engine
broke down and the horse express
beat it. Then came the grasshopper
engine the embryonic gemii of the
tremendous locomotive of to day.
So, historically, the Baltimore and
Ohio is extremely interesting. t
The road grew. It was the first
to cross the Alleghany Mountains
and tap the great West. It grew,
and thanks to tl?" energy, the execu
tive capacity, the untiring labor of
John y. Garrett, it thrived in time

to Boston, where his negotiations,
were eminently successful. Already

Before daylight he was in Philadel

The next morning emissaries of the
Pennsylvania were hurrying to Bos

and would often have violent attacks

and pronounced my trouble indiges

Hundreds of imitation brands are
on sale that look like Schnapps to
bacco. The outside of the imitation
plugs of tobacco is flue cured the same
as Schnapps, but the inside is rilled
with cheap, flimsy, heavily sweetened
air cured tobacco. One chew of
Schnapps will satisfy tobacco hunger
longer than two chews of such to
bacco. The color, size and shape
of the tags, plugs and packages of
certain imita' :on brands of tobacco
have been made so much like
Schnapps that they have often been
accepted by buyers under the belief
that they were getting Schnapps.
Sufficient 'proof has been secured
to establish the fact that certain
brands are infringements and in vio-.
lation of the trade mark laws, yet the
trade will continue to be imposed
upon by these infringers until the suit
already entered and now pending to
protect Schnapps is decided. A
great many of these imitations are
claimed to be "just as good" as
Schnapps, but there is only one gen
uine Schnapps. Be sure the letters
on the tag, and stamped on the plug
under the tag spell S-C-H-N-A-P-P-S

wholesome tobacco produced, with
just enough sweetening to preserve
the mild, juicy, stimulating quality of
the leaf tobacco. Expert tests prove
that this flue cured tobacco, grown
in the famous Piedmont region, re

any other and has a wholesome,
stimulating, satisfying effect on
If the tobacco you are. chewing
