SESSION TO- OPEN PROMPTLY AT
- NOON MONDAY.
MESSAGE GOMES AT ONCE
No Well Defined Profram Arranged,
Members Desiring First to
Hear President's News.
Washington. At noon Monday the
first regular session of the Sixty-first
congress will be convened. Vice Pres
ident'' Sherman will preside in the
senate and Sneaker Cannon will wield
the gavel in the house.
The beginning of the session Is re
garded always with interest, but there
have been few sessions In recent years
for which there has been so little plan
ning among the members. Ordinarily
Speaker Cannon and Senator Aldrich
who speaks for the majority of the
-enate. have a program at the be?in
ning of a session, but this year they
have none; or, if they have one, they
are not talking about it They are
waiting upon, the president By com
mon consent, apparently, all are hold
ing back until the president recom
mendations can be received, as they
will be on Tuesday, in his first an
nual message. That his suggestions
will be acted upon is too much to say.
But there Is a disposition to accom
modate him as far as can be done,
and there is a determination to hear
his intimations before entering upon
any effort at legislation along the lines
upon which he has intimated a desire
.to be heard.
Even the "insurgents" generally ex
press a willingness to wait upon the
White House before attempting to for
mulate a plan of action. This is true
both In the senate and the house. They
manifested much interest in the forth
coming message, but that until it is
received they willjbe unable to form
any plans. They"proclaim no fight
against the president, but some at
least of them are avowedly irrecon
cilable in their attitude toward the
speaker and Senator Aldrich, whom
they hold responsible, the one for the
house rules and the other for the tar
iff law. Unquestionably they will be
heard from in some way before the
session grows very old, and it is not
hoped by the friends of the new tar
iff that they will escape criticism.
The principal interest in the outlook
centers in the possibility of railroad
legislation, and all hands are waiting
with keen expectancy to see what
recommendations, if any, Mr. Taft
may make on that subject.
Representative Mann has bills pre
pared on all these points and will pre
sent them as soon as the message Is
received. He is chairman of the com
mittee which will have the measures
in hand and will press them with
Much interest is felt in the Nicarag
uan situation, but the general disposi
tion is to permit the executive branch
to deal with it without legislative in
terference at least in the present
stage. Congressmen generally express
no apprehension as to the outcome.
While t.e corporation tax provision
of the tariff bill was under considera
tion during the extra session, Senator
Aldrich expressed the opinion that it
might not be of long life, but he prob
ably will take no steps to abrogate it
until the full effect of the tariff as a
revenue producer can be ascertained.
ATI Land Men Included.

to whether all the big land men

WORK OF EDUCATION
APPROVAL OF SCHOOLS
A LARGER NUMBER THIS YEAR
A Ruling Against the Bankers' Life
- Company Other Matters From
the State Capital.
State Superintendent Bishop has
made an announcement concerning
the approval of high schools for nor
mal training. The list includes a to
tal of 110 schools, of which 103 are
high schools and seven academies.
The normal training law was en
acted by the legislature of 1907. Dur
ing the school year 1907-8 sixty-eight
schools were approved for normal
training, with an enrollment of 1,200
pupils in the normal training classes.
During the year 1908-9 eighty-six high
schools and eight academies were ap
proved, representing a combined en
rollment of 1,600 pupils taking the
course. For this school year the 110
schools approved for the work have
enrolled in their normal training
classes a total of 1,850 pupils.
In May, 1909, there were graduated
from the normal training high schools
775 pupils, who had completed the
regular high school course of study
and the course in normal training.
Reports show that of this number
575 of them are teaching this fall.
County superintendents are enthusi
astic over the good work these young
teachers are doing in the school room.)
Insurance Agents Are Out.
The state insurance board handed
out a ruling revoking the licenses of
the ten agents of the Bankers' Life
Insurance company of Lincoln.
The following is the form of the

"By the authority vested in me by,

contrary to the rulings of the insur
ance department and against public
policy,. I hereby revoke your license
No. as agent of the Bankers' Life
Insurance company of Lincoln, Neb.,

in evidence before the board contained
many suggestions of irregularities
that the agents excluded under the
order for the most part did little to

It takes a woman to tell a secret
and magnify its importance.
There is oae atn in the United States
raore works's aacreti tbaa any ether aaaa er woan ia the
cowatry. These secrets are not secrets of gailt or ahaflae, bat
the secrets of safieriag, and they have beea coafided to Dr.
It. V. Pierce in the hope and expectation of advice and help.
That lew of these women have been dJaappoiated ta their ex
pectation is proved by tbe fact that auacty-eiBt per cent, of
efl women treated by Er. Pierce have beea absolutely aad
altogether cored. Such a record woold be reatarkable if the
cases treated were numbered by baodreds only. But when
that record applies to the treatment of more tbaa half-a- ni!
lioa women, in a practice of over 40 years, it is pbenonacneJ,
aad entitles Dr. Pierce to the gratitade accorded bim by wosae
specialists in the treatment of wossea s diseases.
