uneven colour on stairs !!!

I have sanded my stairs in my house it is a victorian house built around 1895/98 i think the wood is pine, the problem is the middle of the stairs is darker than the outer edges and no amount of sanding is changing this, how can i be sure that when i stain the stairs its going to turn out all the same colour please help is there anything i can do?

Got a picture?
Pine is typically full of knots and flaws so it may never come out.
Only way to get it sort of match would be to stain it a really dark color.

Is the middle of the treads worn down from years of traffic? What are you sanding with? what grit?

btw - welcome to the forums!
