V-- N- . r - i r V- . . iv . ' -, L a -- . , A -NERVOUS - MAN Has Distrust in Himself. Strength and Vigor Give Confidence. We are so constituted that we admire strength or robust ness, and while we may pity weakness, we can never admire it. Health is the everlasting fact, the truth of being, which is implanted in our ideal, and any departure from this nor mal standard ideal may excite pity, sympathy or regret, but never admiration. Yes, a nervous man or woman is at a disadvantage in our present age. It Costs You Nothing for Consultation or Examination DS. D.

SHEPPARD COMPLAINS. leave J Secretary of Railway Trackmen Points Out Inconsistencies of Board. A SHORTAGE OF TEACHER S. Already State Superintendent Is Re ceiving Complaints. Shortages of school teachers for the fall term of school are beginning to be reported -to the state superintendent. Thus far, however, the surplusage in some counties Is enough to cover the shortages In others. It Is expected, however, that there. will be an unusual demand for teachers, owing to the fact that most of the male teachers have quit and gone into other lines of busi ness In which more money can be made.' According to the reports received thus far by E. T. Fairchild, state su perintendent of public instruction, from the counfy superintendents, there will be a shortage of teachers in the following counties: Barber, 15; Butler.,. 23.; Clay, JO; Geary, 12; Gove, Mo Dentistry Many dentists do not think It pays to go to an the trouble of boiling and sterilizing Instruments after each pa tient. We do. , We believe In cleanli ness and most of our patients- appre ciate our efforts. Many serious blood diseases are transmitted, from one pa tient to another by their dentist using instruments that were last used on a patient suffering with a blood disease r ulcerated teeth and gums. It is very easy to cause Infections in this manner if the Instruments are Dot properly sterilized. LUX & LUX, DENTISTS SOS Kansas Ave. Tel. 6-14 J. I. Sheppard of Fort Scott, the national secretary of the Trackmen's union, which has filed, complaint against the Missouri Pacific railway on account of the condition of the track, does not approve of the "star cham ber" methods of the state board of railroad commissioners in dealing with the case. He also thinks , that the . board is making a s3rious mistake in accepting the offer of a private car In which to traver oyer the company lines looking for bad railroad ties. In a communi cation to George W. Kanavel, chair man of the board, Mr. Sheppard says: "On Tuesday June 25th at a meet ing of your board in Topeka it was agreed that the board would investi gate our complaint against the Mis souri Pacific Railway company begin ning Monday, July 8, by making an in spection of this company's tracks. You agreed to advise me at what point the board would start on the inspec tion trip, so I could be present with our expert trackmen to point out the things of which we complain. I had no word from you and today I en deavored to communicate with you by telephone, but could not reach you. I then learned by telephone from Mr. Shiner, secretary of your board, that you intend starting on this inspection trip Tuesday, the 9th inst., and that you will not permit our representatives to accompany you. It the Missouri Pacific is not euiltv of criminal negligence in the main tenance of its tracks, as we charge, the company would insist that we be pres ent at the investigation. If the board of railroad commissioners intends making an honest investigation-, it should insist that we be present to sus tain- the -serious eharges we make."1 ' "Newspapers report that vou will make the inspection on a special train in the private car of one of the railway officials. Incidental to such a trip would bo the furnishing of your meals by the railroad company on the car. We submit that you have no right to .embarrass this state by the acceptance of such gratuities from the company which you are Investigating and that it would be manifestly unfair to us and the traveling public to base an official report upon such an exparte hearing or our complaint as such a procedure wouia constitute. "We, the complainants, 'can not fur nish you a special train, but as em phasizing our good faith in the com plaint we make and as a means of sparing . this commonwealth the hu mility of accepting the hospitality of an. anegea onenaer or human rights while its offense is under investigation, we offer to pay all the expenses of the investigation trip including railroad and hotel fare. If you find there is no state appropriation for the expense of Euch an investigation. "It is reported in the press that .at a secret meeting with J. H. Richards, hired lobbyist of the Missouri Pacific, you concluded that our representa tives, who stand ready and eager to reveal to you truly dangerous track conditions of which we. complain, should not be permitted to accompany you on this inspection trip. "You know personally that for years this same Richards has resorted to any means within his resources to prevent the enactment or enforcement of laws intended to prevent railroad oppression and greed. He has become notorious in this state as a professional lobbyist and thwarter of the common rights of the people whom you represent. You can not afford to yield the great in fluence and power of your office to such a man by denying us the oppor tunity to prove to you the truth of the charge made in our complaint. Please communicate the contents of this tele gram to Messrs. Ryker and Ryan, your associates on the board, and ad vise at our expense your determina tion. (Signed) "J. I. SHEPPARD, "Secretary National Union of Railway Trackmen." . The. board will probably not allow Mr. Sheppard's communication to In terfere with its plans to start out to morrow on its inspection trip on the special train provided by the Missouri Pacific Mr. Sheppard will not go along, but E. A. Gould, the general superintendent of the Missouri Pacific, and M. L. Byers, engineer of main tenance of way. in charge of track work, will be with the commissioners to "assist" them in the work of inspec tion. It is understood that the Missouri Pacific general attorney. J. H. Rich ards of Fort Scott, objected seriously to any arrangement by which Shep pard should be allowed to accompany the commissioners on the trip. 'ATTACKS THE "TEDDY BEAR." I0AW60SSI?!

A Priest Says It Destroys the Instinct cf Motherhood. Chicago, July 8. A dispatch to the Tribune from St. Joseph, Mich., says: The 'feddy bear." fad was denounced by the Rev. Michael G.

Chicago. July 8. John Ma!oney the motorman who averted disaster on a Chicago and Oak Park elevated train on May 15 by sticking to his post in the midst of flames with his clothing ablaze until a station was reached, un derwent the operation - of skin grafting at St. Ann's hospital yesterday. Twer. ty of his friends surrendered sections of their skin for the benefit of then suffering comrade, and the operation was said by the Eurgeons to be one of the largest, of the kind ever perform ed. When taken to the hospital Maloney was suffering from burns on the breast, face, arms, hands and abdomen, from which it was doubted he could recover. For several weeks his life was de spaired of, but at last the burns began to heal and the surgeons watched for the favorable moment when new skin might be grafted on the burned flesh. Yesterday was judged to be the right time, and a score of friends of the in jured man assembled at the hospital. About seven square inches of epider mis was taken from each man. The operation .required two hours and at the end of '.hat time over o square foot, or- about 150 square inches of skin had been grafted on the burned sections of the patient. The operation was pro nounced a success. ARE SELLING BEER AGAIN. Kansas City, Kan., Joint 1st s Get Busy and Are Raided. Kansas City. Kan., July 8. "I want a glass of beer."

R. Stubbs can carry every coun ty in the Fourth district for the Re publican nomination for governor, with the possible exception of Morris. That is, provided H. B. Miller- stays out of the fight, as I think he will. I have been travelling around over the district considerably during the past few weeks, and have visited nearly ev ery county.. I 'was amazed at the amount of Stubbs sentiment. It is growing stronger all the time, every- body eeems to think, and it would not be very surprising if It would sweep everything ahead of it by the time of the nomination. . - - "If H. B. Miller should be a candi date, Stubbs would probably be un able to carry Osage county,, but I .be lieve that even with Miller in the race Stubbs would get all of the counties in the district except Morris and Osage."
