Emphatic Protest on Tendency
to Introduce Terpsichorean
Teaching in Schools.
PRINCIPLE CALLED WRONG
Proselyting Practices of Mormon
Church Denounced Swedish
Girls Are Converts.
The Augustana synod this morning
placed itself strongly on record against
dancing, and more particularly against
the practice of teaching dancing in the
public schools. The resolution adopv
ed by the synod was presented by Rev.
Adolph Hult of Omaha, and embodied
the recommendations which had been
previously made by Dr. E. Norelius,
president of the synod, in his annual
report to the synod. The resolution,
which was adopted unanimously, reads
"Whereas, The underlying principles
of the common schools system require
that we deviate neither to the right
by giving specific religious instruction.
thereby confounding respective func
tions of the church and the state, nor
to the left by, favoring such practices
as are opposed to the Christian . re
"Resolved, That we, members of the
Augustana synod in jubilee convention
assembled, do most emphatically pro
test against the tendency to introduce
the dance in our pu&Tlc schools, be
lieving it to be wrong in principle to
use the public money for such pur
poses and for the paid servants of the
public in their official capacity to act
as instructors in dancing."
Hot Shot at Mormoniam.
The synod also took occasion to de
nounce the proselytic practices of the
Mormon church with reference to
Swedish immigrants, and appointed a
committee to prepare an address to
the Swedish government to take steps
to protect Swedish girls from the Mor
mon agents who are working in Swe
den at the present time. It is reported
that these agents have succeeded in
converting a large number of girls to
their religion, and have induced them
to leave their native land for Utah to
become the wives of Mormons.
The committee appointed to prepare
the address to the Swedish govern
ment is composed of Revs. Linder.
Asler, Krantz and Abrahamson. The
action of the synod followed the re
port of the Utah mission board, which
pictured the conditions existing there
and urged that immediate steps be

AND KILLS A MAN
H. J. Wanderscjheid Meets a
Terrible Death Near Milan
HEAD AND ARMS SEVERED
Body Found at 5 O'clock This Morn
ins by Hennepin Canal
H. J. Wanderscheid, whose home 1&
thought to he at Bellevue, Iowa, was
killed by a Rock Island train last night
west of the 'Milan bridge toll gate.
The body, terribly mangled, with the
head and arms severed, was found
at 5 o'clock this morning by Edward
Delane, a Hennepin canal watchman.
Several boys stated that, judging
from the description of the body, the
victim of the accident was seen sleep
ing in a tent on Vandruff's island yes
The theory is that Wanderscheid,
who was well dressed, started to walk
to Rock Island last night, following
the railroad right of way. Whether
he lay down on the tracks and fell
asleep, or was struck by the train
while he was walking between the
rails, probably never will be known.
To Locate Relatives.
After the body was discovered, Cor
oner J. F. Rose was notified, the re
mains were removed to the Knox un
dertaking rooms in the city, where
an Inquest wa3 held, the jury finding
that death was caused by being struck
by a Rock Island train. A card found
on the body read: "My name is H. J.
Wanderscheid. Notify Nick Wander
scheid, Bellevue, Iowa."
The body will be held until the au
thorities receive word from the brother
of the victim at Bellevue.
MOTION IS DENIED
J. L. Oakleaf Tries to Have In
dictment Against August
SAYS COUNTS ARE FAULTY
Is Unable to Convince Court, How
ever, and Case Must Go to
Trial as It Is Now.
Judge W. H. Gest in the circuit court
today overruled a motion by Attorney
J. L. Oakleaf in which it was asked
that the newly returned indictment
against August Safe, the Moline con
tractor, be squashed and his client
dismissed. It was set forth in the
motion that the indictment was faulty
and incomplete, but the judge ruled to
the contrary and upheld every coun't
of the indlcement. Safe is alleged to
have thrown little Richard Heider out
of a building which w-as in course of
construction. An indictment returned
against him several weeks ago proved
faulty in one count through the omis

The skin is composed of two distinct layers. One
is known as the epidermis, or outer skin, which has no
fibres, and serves principally as a covering to the body,
and a protection from outward dangers to the delicate
llesh beneath. The other la3'er is known as tne derma,
or true skin, and is composed of elastic fibres, fat tissue,
glands, lymphatics, nerves, etc. The thousands of tiny
veins and arteries with which it is interlaced constantly
supply every fibre and tissue with healthful properties
from the circulation to keep the skin smooth and perfect.
This is changed, however, when the blood becomes
infected with humors, acids or impurities. Instead of
constantly suppling rich, nutritive properties to the
skin, the circulation deposits the acrid impurity with
which it is contain inated. into the sensitive fibres and
tissues. This causes irritation and inflammation, which splits or breaks
the thin outer cuticle, while the tissues beneath ulcerate and discharge upon
the surface in the form of Eczema, Salt Rheum, Tetter, etc. There is like
wise a dry form of skin diseases, such as Acne, Psoriasis, etc. In these varie
ties thD humor in the blood diseases and inflames the glands, hair follicles.
