Why I Lost

Cannot Satisfy Thifr Employers.
"I believe'{ny fate is not unlike that
of thousand: of other workers^ who
daily lose their places for reasons they

comes (long, it is usually "Your serv
ices no longer required." If the truth
were known, the. reason for their un
ceremonious removal would probab'y
be that their usefulness was destroyed
because of sonis mental worry, bodily
ailment or general Indisposition. These
things, as we all know, are the most
fruitful causeis of failure in all walks
of-life. The battle of Waterloo was
lost because of a headache. In this
quick age our minds must be clear,
rapid, active, and free from ohtside
influence or worry, or elso we go down
to failure with the throng of "floaters"
who go from one place of employment
to another, giving no satisfaction to
others or to themselves, constantly
growing older and less useful, with no
ambition, no \Vill power, and no hope.
Every man require^ from every other
man the best that is in, him. But no
man can use or get the best that is
in himself until he is first free from
all fretful indispositions and worries.

of troubles. That's why I lost my Job.

Turned On This Week Kuehnla'a
Candidacy for Governorship.
Special to Times-Republican.
iDes Moines, Jan. 5.—The tubercu
losis hospital at Iowa City is com
pleted and ready for occupancy, but
for the setting of a generator and
engine the. contract for which was let
to the Westlnghouse company. Their
failure has- caused the delay. This is
expected, however, not to continue
long. As soon as the institution is
completed it is expected that there
will be patients ready to go into it.
The winter time is considered the very
best time for the outdoor treatment of
tuberculosis and for that reason the
board of control is maiking e%'ery ef
fort to get the institution ready.
State Architect Liebbe today began
the work of preparing the plans lor
the new girls' cottage for the indus
trial school at Mltchellvilie. This nnw
cottage will not be started till spring.
The building Is to be on the cottage
plan and a considerable Improvement
over the buildings now at the insti
tution and used for cottages since they
are much on the box shape order.
It is expected that this week the
water for the new well at Glen wo ad
will be made available for the water
supply there and the institution will
then have for the first time in its ris
tory an Inexhaustible supply of pure
water. It was heralded once before
that the water was to be turned on but
this plan was interfered with and the
mains have only now been completed.
A reservoir costing many thousands 'of
dollars completed just before the boa All
of control took charge has been found
to be absolutely useless and the btg
artesian well sunk at great expense
cannot be used because it does not
furnish a sufficient supply of water. A
number of new buildings are to be
ereoted at the Glenwood Institution
next year.
It is recognized here that the candi
dacy of Carl Kuehnle for governor is
for the purpose of embarrassing Garst.
Both cdme from the same congress
ional district and from the same part
of the district. Kuehnle would attract
a considerable number of standpat vot
ers but it is not considered by the
friends of Garst that he would in any
way weaken Garst's candidacy. It is
recognized that it is the hope of the
.standpatters to get as many candidates
in the field as possible and everyone
C. & N. W, Superintendent Held Train
for Woman Seeking Surgical Aid.
Special to Times-Republican.
Sioux City, Jan. •.—Until yesterday,
when It became public, few knew that
"to the kindness of heart of Superin
tendent S. H. Brown, of the Chicago
& Northwestern, Mrs. Henry Paulson,
of Kiron, owes her life. The woman
was stricken with Internal hemorr
hage, and the train from Klron w«is
delayed so that It could'meet No. S,
for Sioux City by way of Ida Grove
on schedule time. The train on which
the rapidly sinking woman rode was
an lio.ur and a half late in getting to
Wall -Lake from Denison. But tVe
connecting train waited for her tit
Wall Lake. Superintendent Brow*tf
had wired orders that It wait, at Wall
Lake all afternoon If necessary. Mrs.
Paulson was 'hurried to the operating
room on her arrival at Ida Grow.
Eight'visiting physicians watched the
work of th'e operating surgeon. The
woman Is now recovering.
The superintendent took what the
railroad men call a "long shot" in or
dering No. 3 to wait an hour and a
half. Aboard It were men with lm-

Judge Fee, of Appanoose county,
and ex-Senator Harsh, are being talk
ed of in the Eighth district for dele

candidates in the Tenth. Kditor Will
Payne, of Nevada, wishes to be one

is being encouraged to that end. It son, former division superintendent of
can be said definftely that Haugen will
not be a candidate for governor.
Friends of Col. D. H. Palmar say he
will not be a candidate.
The suggestion from standpat
sources that there will be a comprom
ise between Garst and Bernard Mur
phy has not yet met with confirma
tion on the part of the progressives. It
is known that there was started a few
days ago in thia city'a movement in
that direction. By those who believe
in political trades and deals rather
than In letting the people make the se
lections the matter progressed by easy
stages till it reached Garst. Mr. Garst
let it be known that he would go into
no combine. That he would look after
his own candidacy arid allow other
people to look after theirs. It is un
derstood that James Wilson, trustee of
the state agricultural college at Ames,
does not take kindly to the suggestion
that the entire standpat srength is go
ing to Murphy. Mr. Wilson Is in every
sense a candidate for the position of
lieutenant governor. He has served on
the agricultural college board for
vears, was Herriott's private secretary
wnile he was lieutenant governor and
has for years been a recognized politi
cal- factor in Iowa. He proposes Jo
make a vigorous campaign for the po
sition of lieutenant governor. Of
course the friends of Senator Hopkins
who is a candidate for state 'auditor
and who resides in an adjoining coun
ty to Mr. Wilson call attention to the,
fact that Mr. Wilson's announcement
was made just after that of Mr. Hop
kins and they Intimate that they think
Mr. Wilson's candidacy is announced
for the purpose of embarrassing Sen
ator Hopkins.

All had to wait. The superintendent
had taken the law into liis own hands,
determined to save the woman's life,
and he did not even know her name,
nor, It is likely, will he ever see her.
"I don't want any bouquets thrown at
me," said Superintendent Brown. "I
would have done, tho same thing for
anyone in that fix, and I don want
any extra credit. The woman couldn't
bo taken across country to the sur
geons if she had missed lier train, and
there was no way of their getting to
her. The operator at the station wired
mo how it was, and there was only
one thing to do."
The plain matter of fact railroader
does not stop to think that down at
Ida Grove, slowly recovering from a
terrible operation, lies a woman who
will never forget the unique sample
of Christmas charity which a stran
ger displayed toward her.
Another instance of such kindness
is that of Conductor Eugene Fraser,
who stopped his train at a farm house
to get a bowl of hot water to heat milk
for a peevish baby.

Stock at Estherville.
Special to Times-Republican.
Estherville, Jan. 6.—In the second
case of the First National Bank vs.
the City of Bstherville, Judge Bailie
rendered a decision in favor of the

the city has the right to tax national
bank stock at its market value instead
of a stated book value, to the supreme
court, anii in this the city was sus
tained. A petition for a rehearing wa9
argued and denied by the supreme
In the second case the bank took the
ground that such taxation was in vio
lation of the national bank laws, in
addition to the claim that the real
or market value of its stock should
not be taxed on that basis. City At
torney B. M. Coon argued the case
for the city, and Soper & Alexander
and Colonel Clark for the bank.

Invasion of Town of Fulton by Rock
Islanders to Secure Forcible Posses­
sion of Records—Fight for Head­
quarters of Order a Notable One—
Finally Settled in Court.
Special to Times-Republican.
Clinton, Jan. 6.—Sunday was the
twenty-flL'th anniversary of tho
founding of tho Modern Woodmen of
America, which had its origin in this
city and the anniversary recalls the
Invasion of tlie town of Fulton by a
train load of Rock Islanders, fifteen
years ago, after tho order had voted
to remove its headquarters from Ful
ton to Rock island, and tho people of
Fulton refused to let the books go to
lloclc Island, claiming that the char
ter made Fulton tho permanent head
quarters of the association.
The special train bore several hun
dred Woodmen from Rock* Island, who
swarmed up town from the depot and
proceeded to besiege the Woodmen of
fices. The Islanders coming had been
noised about, however, and the people
of Fulton were up in arms to give the
Invaders a warm reception. A furious
fight followed, in which the moat mar
velous fact was that there was 110 blood
shed. Broken heads were numerous,
however, and until far into the night
the battle continued. Fulton's super
ior numbers triumphed, and the Is
landers were loaded onto their train,
and sent back home after their van
quishers had taken for souvenirs their
canes, knives, and other effects, even
some of the down river crowd losing
their hats in the general confiscation.
Half of Clinton turned out, going over
the bridge when the Fulton alarm bells
rang and whistles blew, apprising the
people of the entire neighborhood that
something out of the ordinary was go
ing on In the sleepy village across tho
Mississippi. Never before, or since,
was the town of Fulton the scene of
such excitement, and the "Woodman
riot," as it is called, is still the talk of
the Illinois community.
Later the headquarters was removed
to Rock Island by due process of the
law, and the Mystic Workers of the
World now has Its supreme offices In
the buildings mado historic by the
cudgels of the Rock Island Invaders.

The entire inner portion of tlie body is covered with mucous membrane
this membranous tissue is abundantly supplied with blood vessels, veins, /,
arteries, and capillaries. Each of these is constantly supplying to this tissue
or lining, blood to nourish and strengthen it and keep the system healthy.
When the blood becomes infected with catarrhal matter it is .not able*to ftu
nish the required amount of healthful properties, but feeds the parts with
impurities which disease the membranes and tissues so that they becoma
irritated and inflamed, and Catarrh, with all its disagreeable and dangerous
symptoms, is established iu the system. There is a constant ringing in tha
ears, a thin, watery discharge from the nostrils, the breath has an offeusivtt'
odor, slight fever often accompanies the disease, and gradually the entire
health becomes affected and the! system upset and deranged. In its eariief
stages, when Catarrh i3 confined to the nose and throat, sprays, washes,
inhalations, etc., are soothing and in a way beneficial, because they are
cleanly and usually antiseptic, but such treatment has no curative effect,
because it does not reach the blood. To cure Catarrh the blood must be par*
ified. and this is iust what 8. S. 3 does. It
goes down into the circulation and attack?
th^disease at its foundation it removes tha
cause and makes the blood pure and healthy*
Then the blood vessels are filled with fresh,
... reinvigorated blood, which is carded to all
the mucous surfaces and linings, the inflam
mation and irritation arecorrected, the symp­
toms all disappear, the health is improved and Catarrh is permanently cured.
