Care of the Teeth
What is noticed more qnickly and
admired more than the teeth if they
are well cared for and what so
greatly lessens one's personal charm
if they are neglected?
There was a time when carelessness
in this particular was overlooked;
now it is never excusable, for every
well informed person appreciates the
fact that well-kept teeth are not a
luxury, bnt a positive necessity.
Wo use only the latest painless
methods and guarantee satisfaction.

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT SENDS
COURIER FROM CAMP.
EXECUTIVE IS ENJOYING HUNT
Chapman Says He Scents Game as
Though He Were a Born Moun
taineerBrings the Pelt From the
Camp to Secretary Loeb.
Glonwood Springs, Colo., April 19.
President lioosevelt has killed a bear
and a bobcat. He is satisfied with his
hunt for the biggest game the Rockies
aflord. If lie gets one more bear, or
several, he will be better pleased, but
to quote his own words: "I got what
I was after. It was bully sport and
I hope it keeps up."
This is the story brought to Secre
tary Loeb by Elmer Chapman, a cou
rier with a close mouth, who was
chosen to bear messages between the
president and the temporary seat of
government, at the Hotel Colorado in
While he came through Newcastle,
where are camped numerous corre
spondents of newspapers, he brought
his story intact. There was no leak
age and all the information obtained
at that place was derived from a view
of a closely rolled fresh bearskin,
which Chapman transferred from his
saddle to the car at the railway sta
tion. Before starting on his hunt the
president said he did not want any
newspaper men to follow him. To
three correspondents representing
press associations, who accompanied
him from Washington, the president
said: "You stick by Loeb and I will
help you all I can. I cannot send out
a messenger every day, but as soon as
there is anything worth telling, you
shall hear it."
The courier got through Newcastle
without talking and tho president
made good to those who complied with
But it" the courier was reticent at
Newcastle, he was different when his
journey was at an end and Secretary
Loeb had removed, tho injunction of
scciecy. His eyes kindled with a fire
that told his admiration for the presi
dent's prowess as a hunter more than
did the words at his command. The
expression the hardy mountaineer in
jected into his story was: "Say, fel
lows, he's a beaut and no mistake.
The way ho scents game would made
you think he was born In the moun
tains and had never left them. Say,
now, being president don't make any
difference with a man that's got the
real stun In him. Goff said he was
the real thing and did not need show

bcrt S. Hadley. attorney ceneral. will
go to kansas City today for a confer-1
ence with Commissioner Garfield,
who is to deliver an address there to

the commissioner to help him get
facts for use in his fight with tho
Standard oil interests in Missouri. Mr.
Hadley said: "Missouri has contrib
uted dollars to the trust where Kan
sas has paid pennies. If the public
understood how competition to the
two big oil companies is killed in Mis

would be heard from one corner of
the state to the other. I want help
from the government in our fight."

Nebraska Crop Conditions.
Lincoln. April 11). The dry, cold
weather of the past week has been un
favorable for tho growth of vegeta
tion. Winter wheat continues in ex
cellent condition. Spring wheat and
oats are coming up nicely. Grass has
grown slowly. Alfalfa has wintered
well and is growing finely. The low
temperature caused some damage to
oats and probably slightly injured ap
ricots, early plums and a few early
cherries in central and southern coun
ties. Plowing for corn has progressed
rapidly and a very little corn has been
planted in southeastern counties. A
considerable acreage of early potatoes
has been planted.
Peach Crop a Dead One.

crop, as it is thought the severe
weather of January and February de
stroyed tho peach buds." It is said

blossoms, but the prospects for good
apple, cherry and strawberry crops
are encouraging at this time.

Like Happy Hooligan, Ed. Fitz

dealer of Spildimr, Nebr.. got into
trouble for "butting iato" a disturb

army barracks in .Tnckscn street Wed
nesday night, Sioux City, Ia.
After the meeting, when the sol
diers wore shaking hands with the
members of tho congregation, some
ono started battle and ono soldier was
hit in the nose.
The fellow who began the trouble
was taken captive by tho members of
the army. While they were awaiting
for an officer Fitzsimmons stepped up
and said: "I am a detective, I'll take
charge of tho man."
Then ho allowed the man to r:-cnpo.
Last night Oilicir Carlson picked up
tho would-ba detective in Fourth
street and he was taken to tho police
station, wnore ho explained to Chic-t
Dinreu. Ho sni 1 tho thought ho was
quelling a disturbance and was acting
in good faith, bnt he could'nt explain
satisfactorily how ho happened to
let the man escape.
Fitzsimmons claimed he has been
coming to tho Sioux Citv market for
several years aud ho told the names
of tho commission firms with which
he does business. Ho said he bad two
cars of cattlo standing on the track
which were to go into Nebraska, but
he allowed these to go, declaring he
wanted to stay until his record is
cleared. The police allowed him to
sign a $100 bond for his appearance
in police court this morning.
The only surprising thing about
this is that Fitzsimmons did not sell
a gold brick or two to the child-like
police authorities of Sioux City.

FIRST SHOOTING IN STME
Nonunion Teamster Fires at Picket
and Wounds Another.
Chicago, April 19. The first shoot
ing aud the most serious assault since
the commencement of the Montgom
ery Ward strike occurred at Van
Buren and Sherman streets. Charles
Ocker, a nonunion teamster, 'was leav
ing the Atlantic hotel when he was
attacked by a union picket. Ocker
drew a revolver and fired twice at
his assailant and although he was hut
a lew feet from the man, both bullets
went wide, and one of them struck
Walter Klagcr, a teamster, who was
unloading a wagon half a square
away. Ocker was arrested. Klager's
wound is not dangerous. Shortly after
this trouble was over John O'Reilly ot"
St. Louis, who was walking on Van
Buren street, near the sceno of the
shooting, was attacked by union
teamsters and beaten into insensibil
ity. It was believed by the teamsters
that he had been working for Mont
gomery Ward & Co., but O'Reilly as
sorted that he had not been working
for the firm, had no intention of d Jing
so, and until he was attacked knew
nothing about the strike.
Ward & Co. experienced lens diffi
culty in delivering goods than at any
time since the commencement of the
strike. All of their wagons made trips
to the freight depots under police
guard and none of them were mo
lested. The deadlock between the teamsters
and the employers continues and
there 19 no indication of the ending
of the strike. The officials of the
teamsters' union declared that they
had no intention of spreading tho
strike to establishments other than
that of Ward & Co.
