The roost frequent remark

common sense requires the ob

I have been striving to follow It
ever since I left college.
My method of numbing or de
sensitizing the teeth while filling
puts aside the sharp, sensitive
pain familiar to so many who
have had teeth filled . by the

teeth do not hurt while they are
being filled, a really painless
method is of no Interest to you.

Superintendent W. M. Davidson of the
Omaha public schools addressed the boys'
meeting at the Young Men's Christian as

The lecture room was filled with boys ap
proximately of the afg'-e of 10 to 15 years
and they were attentive listeners through

"You do not get more out of an address
than you brlnsr to It. It is merely an ex
change 'of cj:perlences. Nothing Is so
little thought of as udvlcc. It Is so with
going to school; you get but little more
out of going to school than you take to
It. rri stands out before you beckoning
every one to his opportunity. You go to
iI-.ool for a distinct purpose: that la to
know something. A second object In your
idling to school Is to not only learn what
to do, but to bo able to do something In
life. A third purpose In going to school
Is to be something. Many go to school
to learn nothing; so when they go out Into
Ill's they are unRble to do anything.
"Make up your mind to get an education
nnyway; it Is a means to enable you to
do something In the world. Without It
you can do nothing. There are three great
essentials In boy life. They are: Be kind,
be polite Hn be obedient. One la as es
sential as th. other. It was Oeneral
Or it's principle to be obedient, an a child,

la Coming- Primaries.
Joe Roebeck, a Folander llvirg at Twen
ty-elghth and J streets, was shot and
probably fatally wounded last night by
Tom Kotlel, also a Polander, who lives at
Forty-fourth and N streets. Koilel, who
did the shooting. Is only sbouf 19 years of
age. He was arrested and is now in the
crty Jail. He confesses to doing the shoot
ing. There was a danre In progress near the
western limits of the city and a saloon
outside the city Umlls near the scene of
the dance was running wido open. Roe
beck, as near as could be ascertained last
night, went out to the saloon to secure
the beer which was denied him by reason
of the city saloons being closed up. "d
while In the neighborhood visited the dance.
He became Involved In a quarrel and left
without his hat. He returned for this and
It was then the shooting occurred. It Is
stated that a woman at the dance told
young Koall to shoot and the latter, se
curing a shotgun, fired, the charge taking
effect In the chin of Roebeck, badly lascer
atlrig the lower part of the face and In
flicting Injuries from which it Is thought
he will die.
Some Mar lie Denied Vote.
The registrars selected under the new
charter will sit for a revision of the poll
ing Huts on the first Saturday before the
special election. This election comes on
February 16, in accordance with the mayor's
notice and proclamation, which was pub
lished Inst Friday. In that proclamation
all the points considered by the mass meet
ing of the citizens last month, and of Jan
uary 6, 19116, were set forth. In fact, the
proclamation is the same as the body of
Ordinance No. 1.441. That the poll books
may be In order for this election, the
boards of registration will sit on Satur
day, February 19. It is stated that this
revision will be the only one before the
primary election of March 6. A second
revision will occur Just previous to the
regular election. There will be some peo
ple who will be greatly surprised on going
to tl.s polls to vnto at the primary, to
discover that they are not eligible for the
simple reason that they failed to vote at
the general election last fall. The law Is
that any qualified voter will be barred
from the primaries If his name does not
appear on the poll-books of the previous
regular election. If a man has come of
age since the last general election then
his name will be allowed to go on the
revision lists and he will be qualified to
vote at the primaries. It Is believed that
the same will hold true of any person who
has moved Into the city from some other
place. He also will be registered and al
lowed to vote as under the class of "new
voters." The only class then who will be
barred at the primaries are those who
were residents of the city last fall and
had the opportunity to use their franchise
and for some reason failed to exercise It.
I It must be understood that this does not
deprive the man of his vote at the regular
election of April S. A glance at the poll
books of last November's election shows
that the vote was much short of the full
voting strength of South Omaha. There
were 1,741 republicans, 1.42 democrats and
about sixty socialists. This brings up .the
total vote to 8.ISS, which should' have been.
if It represented every qualified voter of
i the city, above 4,501). Bo there are from
; 1.2C0 to MOO voters In South Omaha who
1 are barred from the primaries.
Work for C'ltr Council.
The principal business which is to come
before the city council tonight will be to
pass on the payrolls for the month of Jan-
I uary. of which the itcma will include the
salaries for the fire department, amounting
to $810, and the police department, I1.3UO,
and the salaries of the city officers and
their appointees, amounting to J2.02S.3S This
last Item does not include the salary of the
city engineer, Herman Real.
The petition ff.r the grading of V street
from Twenty-sixth west to the I'nlou 1'n-
clflc right-of-way will come up again lor
consideration. This petition was rejected
January i on the ground that the signa
tures of parties who signed for the property
! on which St. Bridget's Outholie church
j stands was not legally authorised. Since
: that date a letter grunting the authority
I has been procured from Bishop gcannell of
. the Omaha diocese. Even yet the petition
may not be received on tho ground that the
l petition is not subject to a correction and
i the whole business will have to be started
: afresh The Hlghlund Tark Improvement
1 club Is anxious to see this petition go
' through and has spent much time getting it
in an acceptable form.
I Talk Amonar the Politicians.
, I City Clerk J. J. Gillln will find the appli
cation of John T. Becker, S1'J3 R street, lying
on hl desk this morning as a candidate of
the demrcrstlc faith for the office of Ux
commissioner, subject to the choice Of the
democratic party at the approaching pri-
j Among the democrats it was expected
; thai tho rally of the German-American
Democratic club held yesterday afternoon
at their headquarters on Twenty-fouith
street would lead to some developments of
a plsn by which a candidate could be
i brought Into the field for the office of city
treasurer who would Imi able to hold an
even race with K. L. Howe, the republican
candidate. There waa a rumor out to the
effect thai if F. J. Freitag came out as a
candidate for mayor W. J. Brennen would !
resign In hi favor and then the democrats j
would center on C. A. Melcher for the j
treasury, or perhaps S. C. Bchrlgley would ;
change his filing from that of councilman ;
, hark to the offlce nf treasurer. But sll such j
j plans went glimmering apparently, for the
club adjourned yesterday afternoon without I
I coming to any definite agreement. It seems
j that If the proposed candidates enter the
I race they will have to do it on their own re
sponsibility and not depend on any or
i gsnlsed support until after the registrations
I close. '
I Street Cars ( olllae.
There was a collision of street cars jes
I terday morning at Twenty-fourth and N
streets. It occurred at the switch' which
i the Albright cars use in turntiig at O
, street, a quarter of a block south from the
corner. One of the early cars had used
I the swith and naturally it remained open
ntll the next Albright car came alog,
hich was to go clear through. The motor-
man did not notice the open switch and
I just as bis car took the curve toward the
I east side tracks one of the cars of the
Twenty-fourth street line was coming down
' the grade In the opposite direction. A cot
j Ilsion waa the result which did consider-
' m Aammmm In the front en.l nf the At.
bright car and knocked several window
lights out of both. Luckily neither of the
cars waa crowded at that hour of the
morning. ' No one waa Injured.
Freight Depot Aksil Complete.
The new freight depot of the Union Pa
cific Is now almost complete. Saturday
tbe gravelling of the roof and the putting
In or the windows was the principal work
of the mechanics. The work on the new
l'iM"iger U ot is not progressing so rap
Idly. The malls have not been more than
half completed. As soon as these buildings
are complete, the old passenger station will
he removed and then the tracks of the main
line will bo shifted over sbout thirty feet
to accommodate the new structures. At
first It was proposed to b.iild In sidetracks
Instead of making the necessary curve In
the main line near L street, but the su
perintendent said he would not have any
dead tracks between the main line and
the depots If It were necessary to move
over loo feet.
Postmaster Klter Somewhat Hetter.
It Is reported from the bedside of rwt
master Frederick J. Etter that he was a
little Improved yesterday. Within the last
two days his condition has become alarm
ing. His son, Iew Etter. the assistant
postmaster, has been constantly wllhln call,
though he has attended to the duties of
his office Insofar as It was absolutely
necessary. Yesterday the doctors expressed
some hope, though It was still held that the
chances for recovery were sbout even.
Drouth Is Rxtreme.
With the second Sunday since the order
for closing emanated from the brewers' as
sociation. South Omaha was slmost entirely
dry. That someone had something to
drink Was demonstrated by the srrest of
Andrew Anderson at 1:40 p. m. for Intoxi
cation. It Is believed by Chief Brlggs that
a little liquor was sold secretly st one or
two places. He visited Barney Cogan'a
saloon at 270B Q street during the after
noon and discovered several men In a rear
room and suspected there was llnuor be
ing sold, there on the sly. Hoping to dis
cover some evidence of the fact he rapped
at the back door for admittance, but ap
parently he did not know the signal, for
no one responded. Then he kicked at te
door to see If he could force It In In time
to catch a glimpse of tho men who were
in the place. Soon Cogan called him to
the front door of the saloon and asked
him what he wanted. The chief then gave
him a sharp warning that any such prac
tice as the secret selling of liquor must
stop. He told him that the orders of the
brewers stood good with the police In lieu
of orders from the Board of Fire and
Police Commissioners, who had not seen
fit to Issue stringent orders for the simple
reason that the brewers had agreed to stop
the ''Sunday selling on their own account.
The chief intimated at the Jail afterward
that these fellows who Insisted on selling
on Sunday would have a hard time to get
licenses In the spring when the time for
Inspecting- Hammond Plant.
General Secretary Snow of Chicago of the
National Packing compnny was in the city
during the last week conferring with the
local manager. Charles K. t'rquhart of the
Omaha Packing company, one of the
branch houses of the National. It Is un
derstood that the object of the visit was
to' look over the overhauling of the Ham
mond plant and determine as far as pos
sible what Improvements would be at
tempted In the way of modern machinery.
There will be a big increase in the ca
pacity of the engines nnd a full set of new
boilers will be set after the plans of Mr.
Gardener, the engineer. It is likely that a
large stack will be raised, which may be
quite as great In dimensions as, Armour's.

WASHINGTON, Jan. iS.-Baroii von
Busehe-Haddenhausen, the counsellor ot
the German emlwssy, In an Interview with
a Post reporter today, expressed the opin
ion that the tariff problem between Ger
many and the I'nltod States would even
tually be solved. The baron desired It un
derstood he was giving his personal views
and was not speaking officially. He said:
"Germany and the Germans believe that
although the American congress will al
ways be antngonistic to a reciprocity
treaty, aa past congressional action seems
to show. It will find a way out of the pres
ent difficulty. It must be remembered
that the American congress alone Is slow
If I may use that word to act, but the
Reichstag and the German Senate both
have their way of going about things.

American congress falls to take action b'

"The German maximum tariff will go Into
effect at once. Before one single pennv is
taken off the authority of both the Ger
man House and Senate is required. It is
obvious, therefore, that its members will
no longer stand for a condition of affairs
which has given the greatest benefit to
this country. They demand only equality,
a guarantee that German products ex
ported to America will recclvtj the same
consideration as American exports to Ger
many." Asked If he thought It possible that the
Franco-German troubles may seriously af
fect the German-American tariff, he said:
"Hardly, inasmuch as the Franco-German
trouble is not so very serious after all,
when It Is seen from tho inside. Germany
wants the open door In Morocco. Just as
Vnele Sam wants It. If It cannot have It
Germany will b satisfied with what It can
get. provided no favoritism appears. In
which case that country would naturally
not like it.
"In the present situation we find nothing
but a keen competition, only Instead of be

The Moors' quarter is always worth a

Jubilee number was the best thing that
reached Mexico, at least. It attracted
much attention not only among those who
know something of Omaha and the west,
but also among some of our Mexican mem

novelty and an Interesting exhibit of Amer
