All-Weatern Football Team.
TVhlle players -who vould compose an all
Western football team were published In these
columns lately, another classification of lead
ing candidates seems of interest at present.
In the West this season roanv gridiron war
riors have stood forth among th'elr fellows and
rivals so prominently that their selection on
an all-Western eleven Is a foregone.conclusion.
In fact, the enthusiasts who amuse them
selves each fall with the selection of an ail
Wwtern eleven will And the task eenerally
easier than usual. Although the standard of
play has been hish and the teams of bl?
schools have shown much strength collectively,
each one of the Ave biggest elevens has de
veloped from one to three players of more
than ordinary ability.

above all others In the West this year. He la

FOR PREVENTION OF DISEASES
Doctor Simon Prepares Articles
for Municipality League.
Doctor John H. Simon, Health Commis
sioner, has prepared a long. Illustrated
treatise on the "Suppression of Epidemic
Diseases," which will appear in the next
bulletin of the League of American Mu
nicipalities, an organization composed of
Mayors; Comptrollers and health officers
of all of the larire clUca of the Unitfed
States. Mayor Wells Is honorary vice
president of the league In Missouri, al
most every State being represented.
Doctor Simon was selected to prepare
the arUcle because of his success In
stamping out epidemics here, St- Louis
for the lnit twelve months having been
one of the healthiest cities In the world.
He has secured statistics which will prove
of espec'al Importance to seaboard cities,
where foreign cargoes are unloaded, for
ho treatx of the methods of preventing
diseases which may bo communicated by
Doctor Simon says that practically all
of the plague. and epidemics In the sea
board cities are caused by rats carrying
germs. He said that this Is proven by
the fact that before the outbreak of a
filague, rats are found dead on the streets
n large numbers, and that a bacteriolog
ical examination will disclose the disease
germs. He has an Idea, adapted from
the German exhibits at the World's Fair,
of pumping gases Into tho holds of all-incoming
ships and exterminating rats and
He also treats at length on vaccination
and has statistics to show that smallpox
has been decreased In Germany about 90
per cent by the use of vacclhe.

NEURALGIA, KIDNEY TROUBLE
Cured by Swanson's "5-DROPS"
It will cure Rheumatism in any form It does not matter whether you ara
suffering from Inflammatory, Nervous, Muscular" or Articular Rheumatism;
whether yonr whole system is full of uric acid: whether every part of yonr body is
aching and every joint is out of shape. Swanson's "5-DROPS," if used as directed,
will positively give instant relief and make a permanent cure. It will cure Neuralgia
and stop those awful Neuralgic pains instantly. No other remedy in the world will
give such quick relief to the sufferer. "5-DROPS" cures Rheumatism by eliminat
ing from the blood the poisons and other impurities which prevent perfect circulation.
This is the only way in which a permanent cure may be obtained. With the blood
pure, perfect circulation is assured, and disease is an impossibility. "5-DROPS"
is an internal and external remedy, which acts quickly, safely and surely, and is an
absolute cure for Rheumatism, Lumbago and Sciatica. "5-DROPS" taken internally
will dissolve the poisonous acid, remove it from the system and cleanse the blood of
all impurities. An application of "5-DROPS" to the afflicted parts will stop the pains
Most men suppose that the consequences ot these affections are
confined to the SIN'GLE or IMMORAL; but such is not the case- They
often invade the 3IARRIED HKCLE to an ALARMING extent: al
though, perhaps, the original disease might have been contracted in the
forgotten past, but through neglect or bad treatment it has been lurk
ing in the system for months and years, and will, soonerfor later, break
out into sores, bod legs, a dryness and coreness of tbe throat, pimples,
and Itching on the breast and bead. There will be frequently a dry
headache, with dimness of sight, great lonmess of spirits, with acbea
and pains in the limbs, particularly in the legs and thighs. In many
cases there will be a slight scalding of the water at times, with a
twitching-and twinging in the urinary passage, and very often some
PALV in the discharge of water. It seldom happens that two people axe
affected alike; but in each and every one suffering from disorders which
