A reason for the wonderful progress made by Mttiaour! since the war was shown In a native of that state at the Burlngton station yesterday. The man ' attracted attention and excited muKh. sympathy In a vain search "lor a missing "Merit Card" that had been presented to him by his pupils, for he was a school teacher. The man was from the region around Bock Port. He wore corduroy clothes, a negli gee shirt, big plow shoes and a white slouch hat. un his face.be wore a beard of several days' growth which together with his nasal twang made hla Identity much easier. "Well I've lost It," he volunteered, after searching In all his pockets. "Its too bad, but I guess 1 won't find It." Then to an inquiring by-stander he said: ''It was a merit card given to me On the last day of school and on it was written the name of every pupil in the school. I prized It very highly. "I love to teach school and I love my pupils, but I don't Intend to teach this year where I did last- But understand, I am not making the change because I didn't like the last school. No, indeed. My school was In the best neighborhood on earth. Why, at the close of the term before this one, the school directors were at the school. I said to the children: 'Pupils, who do you want to be your teacher next year?" Every pupil held up hla hand. But I get U more a month where I am going and it Is nearer home. That Is why I am changing. "But the old school board was mighty good to me. The last day of school they presented me with a package wrapped In paper. I just laid it on my desk and when the exercises were over I unwrapped It and there was a beautiful Bible. We love each other down in Missouri, and I tell you it made me cry to leave that dear old school." The confiding Mtssourlan had just coma In from Wyoming, where he had been pending the summer resting up on a form In order to be In shape to begin his school the first of the month. All his life he had been "a-teachlng," he said, and now he was past 50 years of age. CIVIL SERVICE OPENINGS Plaoea to Be Filled as Soon ait Ex. animations Determine Fitness ti , ot Applicants.

McOee, who was thought to be a reel dent of Omahi, and stating on authority of others that a letter addressed to her at Omaha had been returned to the writer, L. W. Hubbell, Springfield, Mo., and ak Intjr Information ef her whereabouts and saying valuable Information awaited her. Yesterday The Bee received a tele phone message from Mrs. McOee indicating that she waa still a resident of Omaha and that her home waa at 3201 Burt street and making further inquiry about the item. It later developed that ihe waa the person sought for in the Item, which may lead to something much to her good fortune. Mrs. McGee was visited at her Jioma and said: "My attention waa first called to the item by my daughter, who was reading The Bee, and particularly from the fact that reference waa made to my husband, a mem ber ot the Sixth Wisconsin Infantry during the civil war, but who died en years ago from disabilities incurred In the war.' He waa drawing a pension at the time, but I do not know that be had made an applica tion for an Increase. We were living In Lincoln at the time and six years after his death my mother died. She drew a widow's pension up to the tlmo of her death. I came to Omaha in November last from Lincoln: I have no Idea what la wanted by L. W. Hubbell, as I have never had any correspondence! or business dealing with him in enr way. However, I' did file a claim four years ago after my mother's death for her care, as she was an Invalid for nearly the entire time aAer father's death."

In the meantime the reported H rate to Denver Sunday has occasioned no little an noyanco to officials and ticket agents both of the Burlington and the Union Pacific. All the officials deny emphatically that such a rate to Denver waa even contem plated. Bald one ticket agent: . . "Every man, woman and child In Omaha certainly wants to go to Denver, becauve I am aura that a representative from every family has called me up and asked about that 14 rate. I don't know how the report got started, but it has made a regular nightmare out of the telephone. There Is nothing in it" Borllngton'a Short Cot. The Burlington's short cut from Kansas City i to St Louis has been completed, and September 1 the first freight cars will be run over the tracks. Passenger trains will not be put into service until about the middle of the month, though the local freights will carry passengers. The short cut was made by building from Mexico, Mo., to Old Monroe, lessening the distance over sixty miles. The road has been built by the Burlington, but It will be used by both the Burlington and the Alton. Heretofore the Burlington and Alton have been compelled to go to St. Louis via Louisiana, Mo., making the distance1 from Kansas City 346 for the Burlington and 323 mllea for the Alton. The trains now will have to go only 279 miles. Thla Is the shortest route to St Louis from Kansas City. COLBY LOCATES VOUCHERS Former' Adjutant General Accounts for Money and Examiner Be lieves All la Well. L. W. Colby, former adjutant general, wag In the pity yesterday. Just at this particular time the books used by General Colby in keeping the account of hla trans actions with the state, are undergoing an overhauling by Special Examiner Wiggins. Some time ago Mr. Wiggins made a re pork to Governor Mickey that he could not locate vouchers for 1125 which had been spent in the office. Since then, how ever, General Colby has been able to locate several of the vouchers and It Is believed by the examiner that when his work is completed there will be very little dis crepancy. "No, I am not here particularly to look after my case before the United States dis trict court," said General' Colby, ''but to look up some personal business matters. I presume the case will be tried at the fall term of the federal court, but do not know. I came incidentally to see the dis trict attorney in the matter, but I observe he is out of the city. "Relative to politics down our way, I think that we will give an increased re piftllcan majority. I do not think the fualonl.sts have much of a fallow anywhere la the state, but I can only speak from personal observation In our . own part of the state. Gage county is so beastly re publican that no fear Is entertained of the result and hence political matters are rather quiet down there."
