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.

Shortages of school teachers for the

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

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.

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. Esper from .he
pulpit of St- Joseph's Catholic church

the hands of little girls was destroying
all Instincts of motherhood and that in

of the most powerful factors in th.
race suicide danger.
Father Esper asked all parents to re
place the doll In the affections of chil

Twenty Slen Give of Their Skin to" a
Suffering Comrade.
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.

Summer Suits,
The celebrated manufacturers, who sold us these suits

Thy were forced into it by the weather conditions which
had seriously interfered with the movement of - summer
goods. Anticipating such a situation, we were in the
market when they were ready to unload - and we closed
out their surplus stock for spot
cash. ; - We now have so many
on hand, such enormous assortment
that we could not sell them fast
enough at regular prices no matter
how fine the weather. So we turn
them over to you at prices whioh
you will appreciate and at a time
when you need summer suits moist.
Consequently the pleasure is all

That Is the 5ues8 ot W. O. Austin of
Ctiaso County.
W. C. Austin, editor of the Chase
County Leader, and secretary of the
Fourth -District Republican, associa
tion, was in Topeka yesterday on busi
ness, and while here did a stunt of
Stubbs booming which ought to en
courage the Lawrence statesman.
, Mr. Austin said:
"W. 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."
