Bourgette, of Augusta, but who has been visiting his aunt, Mrs. O. W. Schick, of No. 610 West Tenth avenue, was held this afternoon by a commis sion of three physicians appointed by H. F. Hayden, the probate judge. Bourgette walked into the police sta tion last evening and told the officers that he would like to be restrained as he was afraid he was on the verge of a mental breakdown and feared that he might do bodily harm to his year old son and also to himself. The police took Bourgette over to the probate V court and Judge Hayden had Bourgette confined In the jail over night and de cided to have his sanity inquired into today. It's a sad story that Bourgette tells. He is a man about 30 years old, small and slender and with mild blue eyes. A year ago his wife died at the birth of their son and ever since then he has been suffering from melancholia until he has reached the point where he fears that his mind is about to give way. '"I dreamed of my wife last night," said Mr. Bourgette to Judge Hayden when he was telling his pathetic story. "I dream of her every night. I see her die and imagine that my baby Is also going to die. My poor little wife has been dead for a year and ever since she died I have felt this breakdown coming. I have fought against it but I guess I will have to give up. I don't want to harm or hurt anyone or my self. That is why I am asking for protection for myself and my baby." Mr. Bourgette, with his little child, came to visit his aunt a couple of days ago. Some friends vrno had begun to notice his breakdown advised him that a trip and change of scene might do him good and so he came to Topeka and brought his baby with him. The Child is, now-, with -Mrs. Schick, Bour gette was in an asylum about 14 years go, when he suffered a breakdown from overwork and overstudy. James B. Bourgette was not tried by an insanity commission this after noon as it was expected that he would be and instead he will be taken to Christ hospital, where his friends and relatives believe that with the proper treatment he will recover his mind. Arrangements had been made for the appointment of an insanity commis sion, but relatives asked that he be not tried at this time and promise to care for him. Judge Hayden granted the request of the friends and Mr. Bourgette will be taken to Christ hos pital at once. BIBLE NOT INFALLIBLE. Rev. R. R. HarUtn So Declares hi a Baccalaureate Sermon.

Harlan of the supreme court of the United States, in his bac calaureate sermon to the graduates of the George Washington university. -ine ciDie, - he said, "is not infal lible- it is only infallible to reveal Christ to the world." He called the "take-this-or-noth- ing method of teaching Christianity the "brigandage method."

Lew Smith, a young fellow, who says he is 25 years old but who does not look to be 20. is in a cell in thai county jail and will be examined as to his sanity tomorrow morning by a commission which has been appointed for this pur pose by R. F Hayden, the probate judge. Smith was picked up by the police about three o clock on Monday mornln He had been wandering around the principal streets of the city for hours. The police had been keeping tab on him and finally thought it best to lock him up because of his apparent aimless pur suit of something. It then developed that Smith had apparently lost his memory. He could tell nothing about himself except that his name was Lew Smith and that he was about 25 years old. He did not know what town he was in nor could he tell where he had been. He said that he remembered being out in western Kansas at one time but could not tell when it was or just where it was. He appears to be intelligent enough concerning the things about him but insists that he can remember abso lutely nothing about himself or what, if anything, has happened to him, or where he has been of late.

Dr. Kinsey Will Accept No Incurable Cases. Monday morning the doors of the new Hot Springs Institute at 623 Kan sas avenue, were opened to the public and a large crowd of patients were present to take advantage of the grand free offer of free examination and treatment at cost, which Is extended to all- patients accepted for treatment during the month of June. ,The Hot Springs Doctors were given a royal welcome by the, people of To peka and the state of Kansas. All day long Monday and again today the waiting rooms were crowded with pa tients, eagerly awaiting their turn for an Interview with the great Hot Springs specialists. Dr. Ben W. Kinsey, chief of staff of the Hot Springs Doctors, was kept Dr. Ben W. Kinsey. busy the entire day, but was not able to examine all who called and it was , necessary for a few who lived close in to be turned away with instructions to call again tomorrow. Many were present from out of tow-n, from various points over the state. - One .man was present from -Emporia who, . when questioned as to why he had come so far to consult a doctor, he answered: "Well. I would travel a good deal farther than that to be able to consult such a. man as Dr. Kinsey. My brother lives in Texas and it was Dr. Kinsey who cured him of kidney trouble after a dozen ordinary doctors had failed to even help him." j Not all those who presented them- ( selves w-ere accepted for treatment. Many were refused because their dis ease had progressed too far to be reached by Hot Springs treatment and it is the invariable rule of the Hot Springs Doctors to refuse to treat all Incurable cases. That is one reason why they are so uniformly successful in curing their patients. They thus attain the reputation of curing every patient they treat. The Hot Springs Institute will be open every week day from 9 a. m. to 12, and from 2 p. m. until 5 n. m. On Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday even ings the office will be open from 7 to 8:30.

Commissioners Cannot Hear Com plaints on Real Estate Assessments. . Members of the board of county commissioners are in session today and will be for the next eight days as a county board of equalization for the purpose of equalizing the assessment on personal property in the county for the year lt07. They will hear all complaints that may be made on the work of the various assessors. An Idea is prevalent that the commission ers are also equalizing the assessment on real estate. This is erroneous for the assessment of real estate is made only jnce in two years and this was not the year for it. So it is useless for persons who have fault to find with their real estate assessment to appear before the county commis sioners at this time, as only personal property matters are considered. A RIDICULOUS STORY. Judge Dana Xever Thought of Putting Jury Costs on Zimmerman. A ridiculous story has gained circula tion to the effect that Judge Dana of the district court has assessed the cost of the special venire of jurymen drawn for the John Ewing and Ed Green case, amounting to $100, against Samuel G, Zimmerman, the county clerk. . This special venire, as well as tha names in the new Jury box, were wiped out, of existence by Judge Dana on the point raised by the counsel for Ewing and Green that the Jury box had been im properly filled because Mayor Green had not personally selected the list of per sons to serve aa jurors from the city If r ill W $7.95 Will buy you a Man's Suit formerly sold at $10, $12. $13.50 We have only & few of these and they won't last long.

It is doubt ful if Judge Dana would have the pow er so to do even if he had any desire to do so. But he has never even considered the advisability of taking such action. HIS EYESIGHT IMPROVES.
