Sheldon Drinking Fountain Has K"ot Yet Been Kepaired. The question uppermost In the minds of a tired dusty and careworn public is "When will the Sheldon drinking foun tain again be put into operation." The drinking fountain at Eighth and Kansas avenue near the street railway transfer station was erected last sum mer through the kindness of Rev. Charles M. Sheldon of the Central Congregation al church. Its popularity was soon es tablished. But with the coming of the; cold winter months Mayor Drew ordered it closed and no one has yet ordered it put into operation again. The weather has been very warm for the past week and a demand is made that the proper officials see to it that it is started. Mayor Hughes' attention was called to the matter and he says that he has issued orders that the plumbers repair the fountain and get it into operation but the orders have not yet been carried out.

Make Statement Regarding the Reporting of Accidents. TO DETERMINE FORM. Opinions Vary Regarding Yalue of Damages to be Reported. Other Railroad News of Local and General Interest. Some time ago the Interstate com merce commission announced that it wanted to hear from the proper rail road officers throughout the country representations as to the brm of re porting railroad accidents, to be made under the law enacted at the last session of congress, requiring such reports to be made. Accordingly, last week, about twenty railroad men, connected with this parti cular branch of railroad work assembled in Washington for the purpose of ap pearing before the commission and de termining upon some form of report. There were a number of speakers, and all agreed that there should be a pre cise definition of what an accident is, but opinions varied as to how extensive a mishap should be to justify a report. Xone of them thought that accidents of less than $100 in value should ue re ported under the law, and a majority fixed the time of detention from work which would justify a report in cases of accident to an employe at five days. Some of those present contended that it would be unfair to require the report ing of accidents in which the damage is less than $250. and Mr. Merrill argued for a general statement as sufficient ta meet all the demands of the law. Most of the speakers took a position against the reporting of names of injured em ployes or of those responsible for acci dents, claiming that in the first instance there might be basis for damage suits and in the latter for blacklisting. Mr. Gompers. president of the Federation of Labor, advocated the mentioning of the names of those hurt, asserting that this could injure no one. The hearing was concluded, but the commissioners stated that they would receive the written suggestions bearing upon the subject until the close of next week. ' The representatives of the various roads were as follows: W. A. Gardner, Chicago and North western; W. C. Brown, general manager Chicaeo. Burlington and Quincy; J. IX M. Hamilton. A. T. and S.

ENGINEER COGGINS KILLED. Leaned Too Far Out and Was Struck by Mail Crane. Engineer Vincent Coggrins of the Santa Fe, who live3 at 222 Madison street, was killed Saturday afternoon at Plymouth, a small station eight miles west of Emporia. Engineer Coggins had just tcJd his fireman, John Helvie, that he believed something was running hot. He climbed down from the seat-box and taking his place in the gangway between the en gine and tender, leaned out to locate the trouble which he believed was in the rear driving box. In a few moments Fireman Helvie happened to glance over to the engineer's side just in time to see Coggin's feet disappear. He had been struck in the head by the lower arm of a mail crane and his skuil crushed. Fireman Heivie at once shut off the steam and brought the train to a stop. Engineer Coggins was picked up unconscious, placed in the baggage car and taken to Emporia where a physi cian was summoned to attend him. His injuries were so great, however, that he did not regain consciousness and died after leaving Peterton. After the accident happened conductor George W. Scott, a former engineer and who Was a passenger on No. 6 took charge of the engine and brought the train into Emporia. Engineer John Maurice was called and relieved Scott at that place. The body of Engineer Coggins was brought in on No. ti and taken to an undertaker's rooms. There are but few enginemen in Tcpeka who had a Dettcr record as an engineer or a more en viable reputation as a man than Vincent Coggins. He had been with the Santa Fe eighteen years, and had come to be i if. v vy Many thousands ef people are so situated that they cannot take the proper exercise at the proper time.

"What thin folks need ia flesh or muscle, cot fat To be symmetrical and properly proportioned ever.' person should have a certain amount of excess flesh, but to be plump does not necessarily mean to be fat. Pat is undesirable; it clogs and retards the action of the muscles, inter feres with the healthy action of the heart and lungs and when very excessive, predisposes too fatty degeneration of vital organs, to say nothing of the discom fort resulting from too much adipose tissue. Common sense would suggest that if one wishes to become fleshy and plump the thing most needed would be flesh-forming food, that Is, albuminous foods like eggs, beef, oatmeal, etc. The kinds of food which make flesh are the foods we have on our tables every day; but the trouble is that our stomachs, from weakness or derangement of some kind do not promptly and properly digest it. Really, the principal reason so many people remain thin is because their stomachs do not properly and completely digest and assimilate the flesh forming beefsteak and eggs we eat every day. There are thousands of such people, and they are really dyspeptics although they may not suffer any particular pain or inconvenience from their stomachs. If such persons and all thin people, would take after their meals some simple and natural digestive, like Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets the food would be quickly digested and the proper degree of plumpness very soon result because these tablets are prepared exactly for that purpose. They digest every variety of flesh forming food, which is the real reason why they so quickly build up and strengthen thin, dyspeptic men and women. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets cure every form of indigestion on this common eense plan, that they thoroughly digest the food promptly, giving strength to every nerve and organ in the body, and the weakened stomach a chance to rest and recover its natural vigor. Nothing further is required to cure any stomach trouble, except cancer of the stomach. They make thin, dyspeptic people strong, plump and well. f This excellent preparation is sold 50 cts. for full sized treatment by all 1 druggists in United States, Canada and Great Britian. ; , ! t i one of the most careful and trusted en gineers.
