May Have Rain,.. But, Weatner
Bureau Says' Mercury
Will Stay Up.
The storm that "was promised for
last evening did not come. Neither
did the storm that was to come as
after effect. The weather bureau
however, sticks to its prediction as to
the storm, but it has given over the
prophesy as to the declining tempera
ture in which the public is more par
ticularly concerned,., TSre comes Ob
server Scherer today, with a forecast
that includes showers tonight and
thunderstorms Wednesday but con
tinned high temperature. So that
while the public may-aftd may not
be the beneficiary from a '-shower, the
luxury of a more comfortable atmos
phere is not to be included not if the
weather man knows himself. Evi
dently the practice that the city re

Warm Wit Hang; On.
The hot wave that has been hang
ing over this section since the latter
part of last week is expanding, instead
of traveling as is ordinarily the case.
It is increasing its scope without
drawing in its skirts. It has worn
out its welcome, and if it does not
change its disposition pretty soon the
people will bein to kick. They have
lost confidence in any good attentions
this weather may have bad
when it came upon it. The
FahrenLtits afford no relief. The
more a man looks at one the hotter be
gets. The man who wrote about lov
ing the "merry, merry sunshine" has
been turned over to the Chinese box
ers, and the man who advocates the
shirt waist innovation in male attire
does not go begging for argument in
behalf of his cause.
Nof So But, bat StIU Hot.
The temperature registered 77 at 7
o'clock this morning and at 3 o'clock
it had reached 94 not qaite so high
as it has been the past few days, but
still high enough to indicate that the
warm wave is not wavering.

Charge is Practicing Medicine
Without Prescribed Li
cense. Prof. T. J. Wilson, the magnetio
healer, was taken before Justice
Schroeder yesterday afternoon, on a
summons charging him with practic
ing medicine without a license. H.
M. McCaskrin prosecuted for the
state board of health. A change of
venue was taken to Justice Cramer,

the law in the case was made clear to
him. The fine was fixed at $100 and

The case was brought up hereby
the state board of health in the effort
now being made to stop the abuses
which have arisen in this connection
of late. Schools of instruction in
magnetio healing have become com
hod, and some graduates appear to
think that the diplomas they issue en
title the holders to practice medicine
in the ordinary wav. While the law
does not aim to prevent the practice
of magnetic healing, it does prohibit
the use of drugs by one wno is not up
to prescribed qualifications.

"When the siege of Taris began and
festive little parties of overconfident
inhabitants of the city swarmed Into
the suburbs to see the French outposts,
there was among the latter a good deal
of rivalry In the trade of laying down
rugs ana tarpaulins for those civilian
sharpshooters who bought shots at a
franc a sbot at the enemy's outposts.
Surgeon General Gordon, who repre
sented the medical department of the
British army during the war, speaks.
In a book he wrote, of the French out
posts " making as much as 40 or 50
francs a day eacb by crying out,
"Shots at the enemy 1 franc!" hun

One village, soon to be ravaged by fire
and the sword, was like a fair, and the
sentries could not sell shots fast
enough, for a rich Paris tradesman
was standing by offering heavy money
prizes for the civilian marksmen who
brought down German sentries. New
