"Don't Wash Yonr Face" Order
Issued on the U. P.
Clean Appearance Costs Train
men Demerit Marks.
New Plan Is Expected to Keep
Englnemen in Their Engines.
Other Items of General Interest
in Traffic World.
"He who seeks equity must do so
with clean hands." Thus saith the
judges of all courts of equity.
"He who wishes to hold his lob as
engineer, fireman, conductor, flagman
or brakeman must come into terminals
with unclean hands and dirty faces."
Thus saith. in effect at least, the pow
ers that be on the Union Pacific rail
road. The Union Pacific has fewer baa
wrecks than any other road in the
country, according to interstate com
merce statistics. By making the em
ployees in train service come into ter
minals with unkept clothes and un
clean hands and faces it expects to
have less in the future.
. Assistant General Manager Ware
has issued the order only after closest
investigation. He finds that the big
gest wrecks on his roads happen at
terminal points and have usually been
caused by the fact the engineer and
fireman, instead of beirg in the cab
watching diligently for some sign of
warning or some obstruction on the
tracks, have been down in the gang
way or some other convenient point
adjusting a necktie, removing overalls
and making himself as immaculate for
ntry into the terminal as the coun
try groom who is to win a city bride.
. He cites cases where every member
r,t th train crew fireman, engineer.
hrakeman and conductor was "in the
clear" sprucing up for entrance to the
terminals and the train was entirely
unprotected. He takes the trainmen to
task for the danger such action places
the public in. especially in larger cities.
In the future. Intimates the operat
ing official of one of the biggest rail
road systems in the country, it will be
prima facie evidence that the train
man, no matter in what department,
has been guilty of violating this rule
if he comes into a terminal with a
"biled" shirt, a diamond in his tie,
white cuffs, patent leather shoes, a red
carnation in his lapel and an airy
swagger that shows too plainly that he
is expecting his "best girl" at the sta
tion. The engineer and fireman must
have at least ordinarily "dirty" faces
or it will be chalked up against his
record, and be will soon fall a victim
to the Brown system of demerit marks.
The men realize the value of the
criticism and are passing the word all
along the line and it is expected that
few violations will follow its -promulgation.
TRAFFIC MEN' MEET.
Hearts of Big Railroads in Conference
at St. Paul.
St. Paul, Nov. 11. Men who con
trol the destinies of the most impor
tant railway systems of the west are
meeting in St. Paul today. They went
into conference in the office of James
J. Hill discussing several matters of
importance among which, it is said, is
the advisability of advancing some of
the freight rates in the west.
Those at the conference were:
James J. Hill, chairman of the board
of directors of the Great Northern.
Howard Elliot, president of the
Darius Miller, president of the Bur

is to put on a good fast train In the
spring, which would run through from
Wichita to San Angelo. Such a train
has been discussed at some length by
the Orient officials. If such a train
is established it probably will stop at

ones. In Kansas it would make An

Wichita ExrxHts to Have Service for
Wichita, Kan., Nov. 11. The evening
passenger train, which the traveling
men and many others desire the Oriert'
to run out of Wichita, probably will be
established. This announcement was
made today by Superintendent A. H.
Dickinson of this city.
A petition is rfow being circulated
among the Wichita business men, who
want an evening train on the Orient
"We believe that it would not pay us
to operate another passenger train out
of Wichita," said Mr. Dickinson. "At
one time we did operate two passenger
trains out of this city but one of them
was taken off because neither was pay

NEW MEXICAN EQUIPMENT.
N. R. of M. Orders Many New Cars

City of Mexico. Nov. 11. In order to
remove all possibility of a car short
age, the National Railways of Mexico
is increasing its freight equipment
largely. The first lot of cars out of an
order for 3,200 that was placed by the
company with American car builders
has arrived, and the cars are being dis
tributed over the system. All of them
are due in Mexico by the end of March
The cars are of 40 to 60 tons capacity.
The National Railways of Mexico is
also now receiving the first of its order

THREE BOYS SHOT.
Couple Upwards of 70 Years Old Ar
rested for the Crime.
Geneva, O., Nov. 11. William L.
Parker, 77 years old, and his 73-year-old
wife were arrested here in connec
tion with the shooting of three 12-year-old
school boys, one of whom, Ed
win Rhodes, is dying. The other two
boys, Philip Krause and Earl Rawson,
are seriously injured.
The shooting is believed to be the
outcome of a feud of 30 years' dura
tion between the Parkers and the
pupils of Harpersfield school, which is
located in front of the Parker resi
dence. The three boys were playing
in front of the school when some per
son opened fire on them with buck
shot. According to the boys, just be
fore the shooting a woman shouted at
them: "You've annoyed me long
enough. I ll kill you now."
The last scrimmage of the Wash
burn football team before the Tarkio
game was held last night. The new
lineup ran through the plays and
through the scrubs in a manner which
led onlookers to say that team ought j
to beat everything they met. Llgnt sig
nal practice tonight will finish off the
bunch for the trip to Kansas City in
the morning. - -l
That the. team vill put up the best
exhibition of football to date is certain.
The men are all in good condition and
have fipally learned what team play
means. "On the high school team ana
little town teams I have played on,
each one of us did what he saw to do.
Here We 'have to do' the-same thing
1 every time' a certain play is called or
: the opponents come a -certain way. I
I have just found out that when I do
i my stunt' some other fellow does the
frest. That's team work,'" said one of
the new men last night. The rest of
them have said practically the same
In fact, it has taken this mucn time
from the season to teach the men
team work. They thought each was
responsible for the whole- game and
had to get over it and do one thing
well. Coach Stewart has had an over-'
burden of the rudiments tev teach but
if the bunch really has solved the team
play then he has accomplished a worm
of good for the next season. -
While the main object for the team
now is the Aggies, Thanksgiving, they
are coached to take the Tarkio game
or never come back. That game haa
to be annexed for the sake of a re
spectable showing. Hope is entertain
ed of then being able to take the Man
hattan contest but the prowess shown
bv the old six year players up there
leaves but slim chance of getting past
The defensive work of the Blue Sat
urday will be better than anything
they have done yet. - Each game has
served to instill a knowledge of the
art of breaking up passes and split
bucks which Coach Stewart tried re
peatedly to give them by lecture. His
lectures and their instructions quickly
left the players when the actual play
was pulled off on them. There win De

The Washburn lineup is as follows:

Nebraska Is expected to hoist the
Missouri Valley championship rag to
morrow night by beating the Ames
Aggies, who play at Lincoln. Nebraska
has won everything in the Missouri
Valley conference so far and a defeat
b" the Aggies is unlooked for. No
better team than the Cornhuskers 11
this season has been seen in the valley
for years. The defensive line coached
through the games by Center Collins
effectively blocks the opponents at
tacks by concerted effort and on of
fense Quarter WTarner holds the backs
together and times the attack to a
nicety. The machinelike work is
easily the best in the valley.
But should Ames win and then Mis
souri defeat Kansas Thanksgiving,
there would be a mix up in honors.
Then Ames would have a clear title
but for Iowa, who beat the Aggies.
Yet Missouri won from Iowa and
would have a stout claim to honors.
Again, should KansaB win from Mis
souri, Ames beating Nebraska, then
Kansas even though beaten by Ne
braska would have a claim to the top
round. It is up to the Cornhuskers to
beat Ames and there is very little
doubt that they will.
NEVER HAD ANY ITCHING
After One Application of Postern, the
New Skin Remedy.
Whenever eczema lsp resent on body,
limbs or scalp, the first demand is for
something to stop the continual itching.-
This poslam does. ("Never had
any itching after the first application,"
says Mr. L. J. Brendlinger, Philadel
phia.) In trying the sample of poslam
which is mailed free to any one upon
request by the Emergency Laborator
ies 32 West Twenty-fifth street, New
York City it is best to use it on a
small surface and compare in the
morning with the surrounding skin
not so treated, noting the vast Im
provement. Or watch its quick work
in clearing the complexion (over
night), removing pimples, undue red
ness, rashes, eruptions, etc Unless
poslam has been used the best means
to rid oneself of a skin affection have
not been employed. Poslam has done
the work in worst cases of eczema,
acne, tetter, salt rheum, psoriasis, all
forms of itch, etc.. where relief could
not be obtained by other means. Pos
lam is sold in two sizes (trial, 50
cents; regular jars, $2) by all drug
gists, particularly Rosser Drug Co. and
Fred A. Snow.
Remedy Saved Her Child
PHILIP LLOYD, GRANDSON OF
The following are some extracts from
leters Dr. Caldwell has received:
I wish to thank you for the sample
bottle of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup tepsin.
My little grandson, Philip Lloyd, had
suffered from stomach trouble; w.ien I
sent for the bottle of Syrup Vepa.a ho
was suffering all the time and had an
acute attack of gastritis. I gave him
the medicine, which he said was "nice,'
(he is six years old) and by the time
the bottle was empty, ne was cured.
I was so pleased that I want to tell
you what a valuable remedy you have
made." A Dr.'s Widow. Mrs. Ellzabth
R. Jones, 4123 Perry St., Chicago, 111.
"I liked the sample of Syrup Pepsin
so much that I sent at ones to my
druggist for two 60c bottles, so I have
it In the house resulariy. My children
like to take it, which pleased me very
mucin as sometimes we have trouble
In getting them to take other laxa
tives." Chas. H. Relcbert, 3101 Ja
maica Ave., Richmond Hill, L. I.
"We have received your sample bot
tle which you sent upon request. I
have never had anything in a meuic:ne
form that has accomplished anything
like yours has. It Is simply great. I
have already used two bottles of the
6oc size after the arrival and usin
of -your sample." Mrs. Katnenna
Haberstroh, McKees Rocks. Pa.
There are literally thousands of
women in this country who grate
fully acknowledge that they owe
the present good health of their
children to the timely use of lr,
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. The cry
ing baby usually is constipated or
suffers from intestinal trouble due
to some error in diet. It needs no
heroic measures just a gentle lax
ative like Syrup Pepsin. A small
dose of it will right the baby. It is
a great laxative and digestant,
pleasant, tasting and non-griping.
No baby or child refuses it. Many
mothers never give their children
anything else, and they' have robust
children and no doctor's bills. It
is a great money saver as well as a
great life saver. If space permitted,
thousands of women's addresses
could be given who write they will
never be without Syrnp Peptdrr in
the house. It Is for all the family
for anyone who realizes that salts
and strong cathartics are only tem
porary expedients. You can buy a
bottle of your favorite druggist at
fifty cents and one dollar, or If
you wish to make a trial of it first,
you can obtain a free sample bot
tle from Dr. Caldwell by sending
him your name and address.
Dr. Caldwell does not feel that the pur
chase of his remedy
ends his obligation.
He has specialized
In stomach.liver and
bowel diseases for
over forty years and
will be pleased to
give the reader any
advice on the sub
ject free of charge.
AH are welcome to
write him. Whether
for the medical ad
vice or the free sam
ple, adress him Dr.

MRS. J. E. KENNEDY'S BABY.
The following are some extracts from
letters Dr. Caldwell has received:
"I attribute much of my own present
good health, and surely that of my
baby, to the use of Syrup Pepsin. I
always have it in the house, as it is
so often needed, and I could not ex
aggerate its value to me." Mrs. J. E.
Kennedy. Good Will, Okla.
"I received your sample bottle of
Syrup Pepsin and also bought a 6oe
bottle. It Is the finest remedy I ever
bought for constipation for children.
1 am very much' pleased with It."
Mrs. Ella N. Williams. Wathena, Kas.
"I received your sample bottle, used
it, and got a 60c bottle and find it is
the best thing I could get. My baby
was troubled with constipation and I
now have no trouble." Mrs. Toomey,
"About two years ago I sent to you
for a sample bottle of your Syrup
Pepsin. After taking it I concluded
to give the remedy a fair trial, for I
had been suffering for some time with
indigestion. My stomach would ache
so badly at times that I could not be
still. I commenced taking your Syrup
Pepsin and found it to be a good rem
edy. I can eat anything I want now.
1 have found it to be a good remedy
for children. Now I keep a bottle on
my mantle all the time." Mrs. Ida A.
Fortune. Grand Junction, Tenn.
The Kansas university bunch goes
down to Oklahoma City tonight to play
nwnhnma university Saturday. Tlw
Sooners are primed for the Jayhawkers
but Missouri, a fortnight ago at Jop
lin, showed them to be lacking in the
finer points of the eame. Missouri won,
" tn 0. That is the largest score the
Valley teams have been able to pile -ip
on Benny Owens' bunch since he went
there four years ago.
Oklahoma, it Is said, would like .o
get in on the Missouri Valley confer
ence. To do that they must make a
creditable showing and that they in
tend to do with Kansas. If the Jay
hawkers hove not recovered from their
defeat by Nebraska, Benny's bunch
may have a chance.
In the far east the big noise will be
at Princeton when Yale goes down Sat
urday to have their annual Dattie wun
the Tigers. It is almost sure to be a
great shout for the Tigers and a loud
wail for Yale but Old Eli has been
known to turn decisively on the Tiger
and some dopesters still think It can be
Harvard meets Dartmouth at Cam
bridge. Were Harvard not so strong,
there would be cause for her to worry
for Dartmouth sometimes wins and al
ways is apt to. Dartmouth is consid
ered the hardest fighters of all the
secondary teams and the Crimson will
likely not find a walkover.
The Saturday battles in Colorado aro
the Mines against Wyoming in Denver:
Denver U. aealnst Utah at Salt Lake
City: Colorado college against the Ag
gies at Fort ColMns. Colorado univer
sity was scheduled to play the college
tomorrow but the recent smallpox epi
demic in Boulder forced the cancella
tion of the game. The college, which
holds first chnnees at the pennant wit!h
the U. out. refuses to play a postponed

Oft. but never too oft, repented ad
vice was that given 'the Colorado Tigers
after their defeat of the stronar Kansas
Ageles last Raturdny. Coach Rothgeb'a
lecture as reported is:
"Your worst work was in runnins
down punts. Bowers, who is supposed
to be the slowest man in the line,
actuallv outran the ends, and it was he
who did the best work in this depart
ment. You guards played too close to
center and the tackles played In too
close to center and the tackles played
in too closely at the beginning of the
game. I am glad to see how quickly
you solved the Aggie attack and how
successfully you broke it up. In a foot
ball game you have to be prepared for
everything. Tackle harder and get
lower snd learn to run down punts and
you will be all right."
In the Chicago conference the big
thing for tomorrow is the Minnesota
attack on Wisconsin. The Gophers are
doped to smother the Badgers but the
latter are this year recovering from a
few seasons of weakness and are ex
pected to put up a fight. Minnesota
probably would have an even game
were she not abnormally strong.
Michigan and Pennsylvania will meet
in a contest In which the representa
tive strength of the two sections of the
country will be tested more than In the
Chicago-Cornell game. ,The Wolverines
have given every evidence of having a
strong team by virtue of their victory
over Syracuse by a 11 to 0 score, while
it will be remembered that Syracuse
won from the Carlisle Indians and held
Yale to a 12 to 6 score.
Cornell was defeated by Harvard last
Saturday In a decisive manner, while
Chicago met defeat at the hands of
Minnesota, one of the strongest elevens
in the west, by a large score. In view
of these defeats by the strongest teams
in the different sections of the country,
the contest at Ithaca cannot be consid
ered a test of the brand of football
played in the east and west.
When Pennsylvania met defeat In its
first game by Ursinus, followers of
western football looked for an easy
Michigan victory over the easterners,
but the Quakers' steady Improvement
since that game has changed the as
pect of things to such an extent that
westerners will be satisfied with any
kind of a victory. Although the can
cellation of the game last Saturday with
Notre Dame deprived Yost of the op
portunity of determining his best play
ers, the Wolverine mentor more than
made up for this by seeing the Quakers
in action, and he now has a good idea
of their offensive and defensive
Yost is known in football circles for
his keen observation qualifications, and
after seeing Pennsylvania in a hard
struggle Yost is sure to develop his team
along certain offensive and defensive
lines which will result in an interesting
struggle. At the same time the fact
must not be lost sight of that Penn had
spotters at Michigan's important games
so that the Wolverine's strength is
known in a great degree at Philadel
phia, and it must be assured that the
Quakers will make every effort to win
after their defeat of a year ago.
CLARK WAS EASY.

the second round of what was to have
been a ten round bout. The fight was :

The bout was before the Business

fight, Langford insisted that the ring
be reduced to 16 feet square.
From the tap of the gong Langford
rushed Clark, showering short jabs to

Go to any of the dealers we name below.
Ask them to tell you what they know about
Robin Hoed Ammunition. Some of
them are shooters and can give you their
own experiences with it. But find out for
yourself the truth of our claims for it. Take
a box of our shells with you the next time
you go after game and you'll be convinced
that Robin Hood Ammunition kills
further pets there quicker hits harder
and "kicks" less than any other ammunition.
" IT'S ALL IN other powders are exploded by a striking force,
TUC DrttI7TH?r " causing tremendous pressure that starts the shot at
InCirUlVULK the top rate of speed. This velocity decreases
quickly after the first sharp explosion. The heavy "kick" also proves
that a large nart of the pressure is wasted on your shoulder instead of
being applied to the shot.
Our Powders, burning gradually, drive the shot with ever-increasing
force from breech to muzzle. Full force of the charge comes only when
the powder is wholly consumed at the very muzzle. Results: greatest
possible muzzle velocity and penetration, yet much less kick than you find
in other powders. Our Powders d.3 not crush or disfigure the shot as
other powders will do, and this means that Robin Hood Ammunition
shoots straight it shoots where you point the gun.
Our four brands of powder are:
Robin Hood Smok.I... loaded in Robin Hood and Comet Sbella.
Peerless Smokeless, loaded in Clipper and Capital Sheila.
Raptdit. Dean. Smokeless, loaded In Creaoent and Autocrat Sheila.
