The Number of Justices on the Su
preme Court Appointed by President
Taft Has Been as Great as That
Named by Jackson and Lincoln.
President Tnft appoints
WHEN to Justice John
M. Ilnrlnn on the bench of
the United States supreme
court , ho will linvo mndo tnoro np-
polntmcnt3 to that body than any
president except Washington , Jackson
and Lincoln. Washington appointed
altogether thirteen members of the
court , not all of whom served. Jack
son and Lincoln cnch appointed flvo.
Jackson reconstituted the court , leav
ing It at the close of his term with a
majority of the Justices holding com
missions awarded by him.
As originally made up the supreme
court consisted of a chief justice and
flvo associate Justices. In 1807 a ulxth
associate was added when a now dis
trict had been created to take In the
now western territory comprising the
eta tea of Ohio , Tennessee and Ken
tucky. In 1837 the expansion of the
nation westward again called for an
Increase in the court and two more
associate justices were added. In 1803
a ninth associate justice was needed ,
but flvo years later , when approaching
vacancies made it likely that Prcsl
dent Andrew Johnson might ha.yo'ltho
llppolnhnont of the now jtnomborn. congress
gross uan-ta-opmrantnKonlsm to the
chief executive , reduced the number to
eovcn , thus preventing him from mnk
Ing an appointment.
This number two yearn later , after
the inauguration of President Grant ,
was Increased to eight associate jus
tices and a chief Justice and as then
constituted the court has remained.
The last alteration in the court was
declared at the time to bo duo to po
litical reasons as clearly ns the roduc
tlon in 1808 , as the addition of a now
member made it possible for the court
to reverse itself In the legal tender
Records Since Washington.
Excluding the appointment of members -
' bers who for one reason or another
never served , the presidents have ap
pointed members of the court as fol
lows : Washington ( two terms ) , 0 ;
John Adams , 8 ; Jefferson ( two terms ) ,
8 ; Madison Ktwo terms ) , 2 ; Monroe
( two terms ) , 1 ; John Quincy Adams , 1 ;
Jackson ( two terms ) , 5 ; Van Burcn , 4 ;
Tyler , 2 ; Polk , 1 ; Flllmore , 1 ; Pierce ,
3 ; Buchanan , 1 ; Lincoln , G ; Grant , 4 ;
Hayes , 2 ; Garfleld , 1 ; Arthur , 2 ; Cleve
land ( first term ) , 2 ; Benjamin Harri
non , 4 ; Cleveland ( second term ) , 2 ;
McKlnlcy , 1 ; Roosevelt , 3 ; Taft ( after
Oiling the present vacancy ) , 5.
Of Washington's original appoint
ments , Ilutledgo and Robert B. Harri
BOH declined appointment. Washing
ton made more appointments to the of-
Jlce of chief Justice than any other
president. Ills first choice was John
Jny. On Jay's resignation , In 1705 ,
Washington appointed Ilutledgo , de-
nplto the advice of Hamilton and otu
ore of his advisers. Rutledge presided
nt the summer term of the court , but
before the senate could act on his
nomination hU mind had become 1m
paired , and ho was rejected. The pres
Idcnt then named William Cushing , an
associate justice , who declined on the
ground that ho preferred to remain as
KO associate. Then Oliver Ellsworth
was named.
Jefferson Named Three.
"When Ellsworth resigned , in 1700 ,
Adams , without consulting Jay , again
appointed him to bo the head of the
court. Jay refused to serve. Just be-
toro leaving office Adams appointed
Marshall. Jefferson , In his two terms ,
had the opportunity to appoint only
three members of the court. One of
these was Thomas Todd of Kentucky ,
who was named as the member from
the now western circuit created In
1807. The manner of Todd's appoint
ment was interesting. Jefferson called
In all the members of congress from
the three western states and asked
them to submit to htm a list of their
first and second choices for the place.
The name of Todd appeared on every
Madison soon after taking office
found two vacancies caused by the
death of Justices Chase and Cushing
He first named Lev ! Lincoln of Mas-
Rachusetts to succed Cushing , but Lin
coin declined on the ground that his
eyesight was falling. Then John
Quincy Adams was Delected , bat ho
refused because ho preferred diplo
macy and wanted to remain minister
to Russia. Joseph Story became the
Massachusetts member of the court ,
and the other appointment went to
DiivEll of Maryland.
Ho Vacancy In Twelve Yean.
Between 1811 and 1823 there were
90 vacancies. This Is the longest pe-
xlod In Its history that the court has
remained unchanged. Just at the end
oS his eight years in the presidency
Monroe had the opportunity to fill a
racancy by the appointment of Smith
Thompson , in 1823 , to succeed Brock-
JSolflt Livingston. J. Q. Adams' eolo
appointee- was Robert Trimble of Ken-
lucky , who sat on the bench only two
Jackson , in hla eight years In the
presidency , tilled a majority of the
eeats , op the supreme court bench with
ills own ' appointees. These were Chief
Taney and -Associate Justices
of Oho ! > Baldwin ofjPennByl
vania , Wayne of Georgia ana Harbour
of Virginia.
Van Huron , noon after be become
president , filled the two now places
created by an act of 1837. His first
appointee , William Bmlth of Alabama ,
declined , nnd ho named Catron of Ten-
BFoo and McKlnlcy of Alabama.
William Henry Harrison wan the first
president to have no opportunity to
nako appointments to the supreme
bench , but Tyler , who followed him ,
appointed two justices. The second
president who made no appointments
was Karhary Taylor , but ho , llko Harrison
risen , wan but a short time in ofllco.
Klllmoro , who succeeded him , appoint-
vl one. Polk , Pierce and Buchanan
.ind the appointment of only one Jus-
: lcocach.
Lincoln who chose fire , including
3hlcf Justice Chase , was able to fill
> no newly created place. This was
for the new circuit created on the Pa
cific slope , to which ho appointed Bte-
phon .7. Field , Johnson , oa already re
called , was prevented from making ap
pointments to the court by having It
cut down in size. Grant's first appoint
ment was Edwin M. Stanton , who ,
however , never served , as ho died four
days after his confirmation by the sen
ate. Hayes appointed but two Jus
tices , one of whom was the late Jus
tice Harlan. Garflcld , In his brief
term , selected one Justice , Stanley
Matthews of Ohlp , whllo his successor ,
Arthur , appointed two , Gray of Massa
chusetts and Blatchford of Now York.
Cleveland appointed two justices in
each of his two terms. McKlnloy ap
pointed but one , Justice McKcnna of
California. Of Roosevelt's three ap
pointees , Holmes , Day and Moody , all
hut the last are still members of the

commissioned. Bushrod Washington
was thirty-six. Most of the members ,
especially In recent years , have been
well along in their forties nt the be
t-Inning of their service. The shortest
terms of those who actually partici
pated In the proceedings of the court
were those of Thomas Johnson of
Maryland , one of Washington's ap
pointees ; Trimble of Kentucky and
Itowell E. Jackson of Tennessee , the
Democrat whom Benjamin Harrison
appointed to the bench just before
leading office. Each served but two
Hlght Justices have served on the

Thla Often Will Prevent Their Prama ,
turo Lots and Consequent Irregu
larity of Second Set
It is most Important that the teotb
of children should bo attended to rot ?
nlarly. When the teeth begin to come
into position , they should bo brushed
by the parents. This will not only
cleanse the teeth , and assist In pre
venting decay , but It also will form
a habit which will be Invaluable in
after life. Many older children ob
ject to having tholr teeth examined
and it is often impossible to do any
thing with thorn. By starting at an
arly age , it will accustom the child
to th different procedure * ncoassarr
in the care of the mouth.
If you would aavo your child much
Buffering , and the evlli of a fou
mouth , you should have it * teeth ex
amlnod for cavities ever/ three
months , from the time it la two yean
old. If a cavity can be found when
first starting , it con be filled with
little expense , and no pain.
One thing that should not bo for
gotten Is that there ia a regular time
when each baby tooth should be lost
Those children who lose their baby
teeth too soon through decay do no
have , as a rule , as healthy pormanon
teeth oa those children who have ha (
their baby teeth attended to. What is
Btlll worse , the early loss of the baby
teeth is apt to cause the second teeth
to come down In the mouth irregu
larly , and often a disfigurement for
life Is the result of this early neglect.
By the filling of the baby teeth , the
child 1 * also assisted in the mastica
tion of 1U food. A decoyed tooth U
sensitive to bite on , and the child in
Btlnotively will avoid chewing on it
The result IB , if there is much decoy
that the child will bolt its food with *
out chewing , and thus form a detri *
mental habit which may lost through
Another thing to remember U that
if there are decayed places in the
tooth whore food may lodge for any
length of time , such decomposed mat *
tor becomes germ-laden and in many
cases Invites disease.
No wonder that the child , thus ne
glected , often displays a peevish , In

lack of vitality and a tendency toward
At about the age of six the chile

of Seaborn Manning , ill with lung
troubles and hitherto regarded as jur

dentally dropped one on the water
cooling pipe attached to the radiator

A Quickening Trade.
Now York , Nov. 4. R. D. Dun
Co.'s weekly review of trndo anys :
"The big volume of bimlnesn Is of
fair amount nnd trade continues to
exhibit a quickening spirit , In iiiont
lines It Is Htlll below producing capa

plylni ; of ImmediatenccoHHltloH. . The
absence of large unsold stocks on the
shelves and the presence of supplies
of credit nro so great that tlio country

needs of Europe to an extent that lias
rarely , If over , been equalled In the
past nro basic strength.
"Orders for steel products booked
by the leading Interests during Octo
ber huvo been the largest without tlio
exception in any month during this
year. The transporting companies
arc also making purchases of needed
equipment , contracts for some 10,000
cars having boon placed in the past
week , whllo about half that number
are under negotiation. In addition
part of an order for 25,000 tontt of
standard rails has been placed , busl
ness being for 1912 delivery. A fair
tonnage of structural material is call
ed for , but plates arc inactive. Steel
bnrs nro quiet and quotations nro
weak. There is n slightly better de
mand for wire. Pig Iron Is weak.
The movement of dry goods continues
very steady. Export between tlio far
east IB at a standstill , owing to the
Chinese complications , but tlio mlscol
laucous trade IH steady nnd shipments
still show n substantial gain over a
year ago. Woolen and worsted agen
cles report ns they demand for near
by requirements with a slow oxpan
slon of forward orders , on which the
mills are placing more looms nt work.
'In men's wear , novelties Imvo boon
closely cleaned up and there. Is stead

the users of goods are placing orders
further ahead and there 1s an Increase
duplicating tor spring. As the prices
work lower on cotton yarns business
expands , while the call for worsted
yarns Is well maintained for nearby
use. Footwear jobbers nro holding
off until assured that the lute ad
vances asked by manufacturers are
to be maintained and are not dis
posed .to place more than supplemen
tary contracts for winter goods ; busi
ness for spring delivery has not been
In very large volume as yet. Hides
and skins arc fairly active and firmer ,
but there is less doing in leather. "
Nebraska Squad Reaches Ames , la.
Ames , In. , Nov. 4. The Nebraska
football squad arrived here from DCS
Moines shortly before noon for the
game with the Iowa Agricultural col
lege this afternoon , which is expected
to have a bearing on the Missouri val
ley championship.
Members of the Nebraska team ap
pear as fairly confident of victory ,
while none of the Amca coaches or
players would make any predictions as
to the possible outcome.
Head Coach Williams of the Aggies
and Trainer Jack Watson pronounced
the condition of the men as excellent
with the possible exception of McDon
aid and Vincent. The former was in
jured in the Missouri game , and
though practically sound will not bo
started in the game. Ho may take

Columbus Beats Norfolk.
Columbus , Neb. , Nov. G. Columbus
high school defeated the Norfolk high
school in a hot game by the score of
G to 0. Columbus lost the toss and
kicked to Norfolk for the first half.
Norfolk kept the ball in Columbus ter
ritory , but was unable to advance the
ball when yards were needed. In the
second quarter Columbus came back
strong and gained at will , the entire
quarter being played in Norfolk's ter
ritory. In the third quarter Ilagel
recovered a fumble on the twenty-
yard line and raced for a touchdown
and Rector kicked goal. The two
tackles and the backfield were the
ground gainers. Forward passes to
the ends were worked by Columbus
for long gains. The lineup :

Nellgh , Neb. , Nov. G. Special to
The News : The Gates academy football -
ball eleven met the fast Atkinson
boys at the Riverside park field Snt-
urday afternoon and administered to
them a defeat to the tune of 11 to 3.
Atkinson secured their only points by
a goal kick from the field in the second
end quarter. It was probably the
most tempestuous game witnessed on
the local field this season. Gates se
cured five points in the second quar
ter and .six in the last. At no time
during the progress of play was the
goal of the hpmq poyflln danger. C.

specimens of the world famed collec

now open to ( lie public on Sundays ns
well no week days.
There Is not the attempt on
the part of ( he museum to make n blar
ing cln-us exhibit of the things It IIIIH.
The collection Is arranged In a scien
tific manner , yet with nil the scientific
tific en re that has been taken the curators
raters have always kept the public In
mind , nnd the ppeclmeiis on view rep
resent only the finest and best of their
kind. They are put there because they
have a popular as well as Rclcntlllc In

Tlio nrgim pheasant group IB In one
tremendous cage. One of the birds Is
a meek looking hen pheasant , but an
big as a Christmas turkey at that. Al
though the nrgus pheasant does not
have the same sort of coloring the
peacock Is blessed with , the manner
of spreading the tail and foatbera IB
the same. The curious feature of thla
bird Is the great development of what
are known as tfie "secondary feath
ers. "
These birds are rare , ns far as ex
hibits are concerned , because they are
very shy and have to bo trapped. The
group Is worth several hundred , del
In the paleontology exhibit la the
skeleton of a sea serpent. It is bigger
than a whale nnd slimmer , and ho
lived 3,000,000 , years ago.
There Is a bit of a fake about the old
reptile , seventeen feet long , furnished
with two strong hind legs and two
weak forelegs , for the bones of this
animal were not all found. To make
up the deficiency , Imitation bones were
manufactured in the museum and
placed In the proper position. However -
over , the thing Itself is there , lie/
came from out west , and ho lived
there several million years ago , before
the dawn of man's era. Near him ,
hanging on the wall , IB n slab of stone
with two enormous chicken tracks.
That's what they look like. The tracks
are larger than a baseball catcher's
mitt , and they are the trail of Rome
great beast which lived In the slime of
a New England marsh several million
years before Boston was founded.
Across the hall Is the skeleton of the/
dragon which bad wings. There wa
a time when these great beasts with
wings did lly. They have no place
now except in folklore and ghost tales ,
but be Is there , captured and pinned to
the wall of the museum , labeled wltli
a long Latin name , with plenty of
description to tell exactly where ho
came from nnd what sort of family
he had.
These are but a few things out of
the great exhibit that has been men
tioned. There are BO many others ,
even rarer and more Interesting to
some people , , that the list of them
would take days to read. The rock
larger than two folding beds actually
fell from the sky , nnd there are other
rocks like It , varying in size down to
little bits of stones no bigger than an
