People do not talk about it to one uuotlier, but its victims are on every hand. They art; known to every wise observer, because the symptoms aro unmistakable and cannot be con cealed. This insidious disease is pull ing down thousands of men who should at their time of life be in full possession of the superb attributes of manhood. It is sad to see men fall in power, as so many do, at just tho time when they are able to command the pleasures of life and to enjoy them. You are older now and can look back and see the mistakes you have made but joa cunnot bring back the fire and vlor of the springtime of robust man hood. Have your errors and excesses ravaged your system and undermined your nerve force? Quickness, back ache, nervousness nnd debilitating drains or worn-out, shrunken and life less organs are making your life a mis erable existence devoid of pleasure. You hesitate nnd falter; you are not the man you ouco were, and you know it. I can understand just how you feel in your own mind, the loathing at times and the hopelessness and disgust, your lack of energy and magnetism nnd of WEBSTER WILL VOTE ON WATERJUESTION, Special Election Called for March 10 to Consider Offer of Company. A cpeclal election has been called that Webster Groves cltlzenu may vote on a proposition submitted by the Missouri Water, Light and Traction Company to furnish water to the people of that town. A proposition similar to the one proposed has been adopted at a special election In Kirkwood. but. according to C A. Robinson of Webster Groves, it la not binding upon the water company" unless the same propo sition is earned in Webster Groves. According to Mr. Robinson, if the two contracts are approved, it might bring about a new problem for St. Louis if the city ever deslre3 to extend its boundaries westward. "Should the Webster proposition carrj on the 10th of March, and the Kirkwood pro") ositlon thereby be confirmed. It would re BUlt in private control of the waterworks system Immediately adjoining th St, Louis city limit on the west," says Mr. Robin son. "Should the city at any time desire to extend its limits, it would necessarllv I have to recognize the rights of the water companies supplying Webster and Kirk wood. "A bill has been unanimously passed by tho Board of Publlo Improvements to sup ply Webster, and possibly Kirkwood, from the city waterworks. The bill was passed, but was Introduced into the Council, and referred to a committeee, where it will possibly rest for a long time, "As a business proposition It would seem that the city of St. Louis could hardly af ford to allow a foreign water company to I gain a foothold in the only direction in i which the city limits can be extended. Un 1 less the Council takes some action in the matter before the 10th of March. It is more man likely that the bill introduced by the Missouri Water, Light and Traction Com pany will be passed by the citizens of Web ster Groves, as water is a crying necessity In both Webster and Kirkwood. After the drought of last summer It Is hardly likely that any company offering a supply of wuter would be turned down. "From tho present outlook one might imagine that the Missouri Water Light and Traction Company was more than like ly to obtain a very valuable franchise for practically nothing, and which the city of St. Louis- will sooner or later have to ac quire, and no doubt pay a tremendous price for It. The natural supply of water for Webster and Kirkwood U the same as thu western part of the city of St. Louli. The city limits of Webster Groves are only three-quarters of a mile west of the city limits of St. Louis. "The Water Commissioner states that these villages can be supplied with all the water they need without any additional facilities, from the city of St. Louis. The city will be at no expense whatever in this matter, and the water supply to points out side tho city would be paid for at a rate that would not only reimburse the city of St. Louis for Its expense for tho cost of supplying the wattr. but leave It a prollt besides."
