A Plea for the Conservation f
Common Sense" That la Meeting
With Cordial Approval.
A strikingly strong article by Colo
Bel George Harvey in the North
American Review, for September, Is
written in a view of such hopeful
ness for the American future that it
has attracted wide attention. The
article is entitled, MA Plea for the
Conservation of Common Sense" and
it is meeting with the cordial ap

of political opinion throughout the en

"Unquestionably a spirit of unrest
dominates the land. But, if it be
true that fundamentally the condition
of the country is sound, must we
necessarily succumb to despondency,
abandon effort looking to retrieval
and cringe like cravens before clouds
that only threaten? Rather ought
we not to analyze conditions, search
for causes, find the root of the dis
tress, which even now exists only in
men's minds, and then, after the
American fashion, apply such rem

The answer, we beliee, to be plain.
It awaits adjustment of the relations
of government to business. The
sole problem consists of determining
how government can maintain an

whole people, on the other, protect

saving the former from mad assaults.

Patriotism is the basis of our insti

of our youth is no longer linked solely
with fireworks and deeds of daring. It
is taught in our schools. A new
course has been added a course in
loyalty. Methodically, our children
learn how to vote, how to conduct
primaries, conventions and elections,
how to discriminate between qualifies
Tunis of candidates and, finally, how
to govern as well as serve. They are
t lught to despise bribery and all
jorms of corruption and fraud as
treason. Their creed, which they aro
made to know by heart, is not com

But let us never forget that the great

Is about $9,000 a year. Mr. Geilus be

for funds, he would then have deputy

NEBMSMN WONG THE DEAD
Cloudburst Causes a Flood and Turns

Clayton. Kan. Sixteen persons lost
their lives and eleven others suffered
injuries in the wreck early Friday
morning two miles east of town of
westbound Rock Island passenger
train No. 27. which was due In Den
ver at 8:25 in the morning from Kan
Partial list of dead:
P. Blckenbaugh, Goodland. Kan.,
A. V. Huffman, Kansas City, bag
J. W. Usher. Denver, conductor.
William .Mills, fireman.
Herman Mueller. South Center,
John Sloop, Boyle. Kan.
W. E. Shively. Agra. Kan.
Gilbert H. Ivans, Fullerton. Neb.
The remainder of the dead are un
identified. The wreck occurred at a fill, a
thousand feet of which bad been
washed out by a cloudburst.
The train was running practically
on time and was proceeding on a
straight stretch of track. Evidently
the first intimation that the engineer
had of any danger came when he real
ized that the forward portion of the
train was running in water, which
had spread out over the tracks near
the fill. Reversing the engine, the
engineer checked the speed of the
train, but not enough to prevent the
engine, baggage car. and the smoker
going over into the depression. The
rear end of the smoker remained tilt
ed on the earth bank and the chair
car ripped its way into the smoker,
smashing it to pieces and killing or
injuring! many passengers.
The chair car itself was consider
ably damaged, and several passengers
riding in this car were hurt. So far
as can be learned all of the passengers
killed were occupants of the smoker.
To the coolness and quick wit of En
gineer Pickinbaugh, who lost his life,
is attributed the saving of the lives of
those who escaped.
Passengers in the Pullman and
other day coach, hurled from the
berths, and chairs by the shock, hur
ried out Into the storm and rendered
what aid they could to the injured
and in extricating the mangled bodies
af the dead.
Others hurried to Clayton, where
news cf the accident was wired to
division headquarters, and within half
! an hour physicians and nurses and a
wrck train were being hurried to the
scne from Norton. Colby, Goodland
and Phillipsburg. It was not until late
Friday afternoon, however, that thp

Children's taste Is ofttiiaes more ac
curate, in selecting the right kind of
food to fit tho body, than that of
adults. Nature works more accurate
ly through the children.
A Brooklyn lady says: "Our little
hoy had long been troubled with
weak digestion. We could never per
euado him to take more than one taste
of any kind of cereal food. He was
a weak little chap and we were pus
zled to know what to feed him on.
"One lucky day we tried Grape
Nuts. Well, you never saw a child
eat with such a relish, and it did me

"My husband had never fancied ce
real foods of any kind, but he be
came very fond of Grape-Nuts and has
been much improved in health since

any children In this 'city, and. of
course, my friend is a firm believer In
Grape-Nuts for she has the evidence
before her eyes every day."
