Care of the Teeth
What is noticed more tpiickly and
admired more than the teeth if they
ore well cared for and vlmt so
jrreatly lessens one's personal charm
'f they are neglected?
There was a time when carelessness
in this particular was overlooked;
now it ia never excusable, for every
well informed person appreciates the
fact that well-kept teeth nro not a
luxury, bnt a positive necessity.
We" use only the latest painless
methods and guarantee satis'faction.

frd'A ;ho Telegram oflico produced
some amusement among those ac
tr.r.inted with tho facts. As one mem
ber of the council said. "It may bo
thai Mr.Oroison, from his long associ
ation with tho democratic party,
thought thar sinco there is a possi
bility of a democratic machine Meas
urer, if would bo well to safeguard tho
city's interes-ts in this matter, whic"
havo bppn safo without guarding under
F.ort Galley's administration of tho
t ronsnror's ollice. As ovorv hotly knows,
this is not tho only matter wherein
Air. Galley has refused to take advant
igo of tho opportunities presented for
hi- pon-onal gam. Ho has furnished
a 5. JO, 000 bond when tho law required
oniv In If that amount. Furthermore,
the law allows him to collect the city
taxes, which would bring him an ad
ditional rovenno of &'.00 or 100. He
has nor availed himself of this privi
lege but has turned this business all
to tho county treasurer, a democrat.
WhonUoward wants to cast rellectious
on the honesty of a republican official
he had bottor spot somo other man
than Bert Gailoy, if ho values his re
putation for truth."'
In addition to this, tho co ncil
passed tho following resolution in re
lation to street numbers:
"Resolved, by the Mayor and Coun
cil of tlio city of Columbus, that all
property owners within tho proscribed
district for tho free delivery of mail,
who havo not complied with the or
diuiuco in relation to the nuuibsring
of their business houses or residences,
that if tho saiuo has not been complied
with by April l."i, HKr, The city will
cause tho proper numbers to bo placed
upon .said houses of business or resi
dences ami tho expense of samo shall
bo charged up to said proi-erry. '
Sig Bowling Tournament.
George Hagel is planning a big
howling tournament for Columbus in
the near future. Ir will bo open to
tennis from tho entire northwestern
part of the state and will occupy three
days time. Subscriptions from busi
ness firms and individuals havo already
hcen received aggregating over 00.
Substantial cash prizes will be ofl'ored
and forty or fifty teams aro expected
to enter. This would mean tho nc
comedation of seme -00 people iu Co
atuhasfir three days and wouid be
a notable cQnt for tho athletic por
tion r.f our c:tj-.er.s and prohtr.b.e to
the business interests of tho city.
Sufficient money has been subscribed
to insure tho offering of 400 in cash
prizes, and it only xemains now to
secure entries from tho various towns
where bowling is practiced. In ad
dition to tho regular events, special
prizes will be offered which will be
opon to the entire state, thus admit
ting teams from Omaha. Lincoln and
other cities nst in this section.
The president of the state bowlers'
association was hero yesterday. He
lives in Omaha, and he assured Sir.
Hagel that at least five teams from
Omaha would enter for the special
events. The Brunswick-Balko com
pany, manufacturers of bowling equip
ment, will offer a prize of probably
Marc details will be announced as
definite arrangements are completed.
Dr. Terry, the eminent eye special

THE REVIVAL MEETINGS.
Ten days ago bright colored crayon
posters appeared in promiuent places
about town calling attention lo thn
union effort of four churches of Co
lumbus for the salvation of immortal
souls. In one the whirlpool of sin
represented sucking men aud women
to tho maelstrom of death ; another
shows men tossed ou tho sra of life
rneoiving Christ into tho ship ; a thiid
pictures tho business man held
by tho neck in his counting house,
1 while Christ imtkntly knocks at tho
door. Tho Christian unity and Invo
! whi:h prevails among tho churches is
poriravid in another.
Twelvo neighborhood prayer meet
ings -wcro hold through the middle
of March in various parts of tho enm
mnnity. A deep feeling of dependence
upon God and desire for a baptism
of our littlo city was manifest. Tho
Itest. of feeling and fellowship was
perceived in theso gatherings. This
had already been tho case in the meet
ings cf tho local ministers' asso'ia
tion. Each pastor seemed touched
with a new spirit of prayer and con
secration and in a'l the planning for
his extensive campaign tho most com

Tho Baptist, Methodist, Congrega
tional and Presbyterian churches
which began together will receive
great benefit from tho meeting in
progress. Tho United Brethren aro
also joining now and persons aro ac
cepting Christ who will mate their
church home in oth"r churches than
these. Tho spirit animating those
dircctiug tho enterprise is both broad
and deep. All last week an intense
earnestness seemed to hang over the
assembly both nfternoon nnd evening
and every meeting was efficient for
bringing sonls to a decision forChrist.
Oa Sunday it was annuoncol that at
least ten had so decided There are
now at least sixteen, six of whom are
men nnd older boys besides a number
of inquirers seeking the way of lifo
On last Sunday the churches held
services iu their own places of wor

United Christian Endeavor fe'ciLiely
preached at theCongiegatioual church.
At four "o'clock fifty or sixty men
gathered i.i the Mutho.!,!-: church tor

manhood in his own earnest way. He
was followed by Evangelist Hard
castle, who evidently not only loves
men-because of their manliness bnt
knows their temptations and needs
in such a way as to bo helpful to
them. The conference that followed
brought out a uumlor of helpful testi
monies aud some earnest advice. A
male quartette rendered effective mus

societies united in a meeting at the
Congregational church A good num

Christian fellowship was very aptly
discussod by many persons there. At
soven thirty in the Methodist chorcn,
a large concourse of people assembled
Every available seat was occupied.
Some who came returned home, others,
remained outride at the doors and
windows: Rev. Hardcastle spoke on
tho drawing power of Christ and
when he at last called for all- who
wished to be drawn to stand, few re
mained in their seats. It wan inspir

Monday night the attendance was
excellent Tor tho early part of of the
week and decision cards were givoii to
porsons wishing them ns thoy passed
out to sign at homo and return. The
joy of those who havo jnst found a

Tho workers assisting the pastors and

thoroughly consecrated and earnest
and while thoy aro exceedingly mix

hungering for a closer walk withGod,
yet thoy exhibit a spirit of courtesy
and consideration for those who
would not care to Lo annoyed. There
is littlo if any, excitement in connec

When have such prayers ascended to

When have Christian people been so
impressed with tho presence of the
Divino One: When have Christians
so fully realized theirChristian broth

God is working in an unusual manner
among us? The meetings are all be
ing held in tho Methodist cbnrch.
On Friday afternoon at the close of
