shot and seriously wounded Wednesday
afternoon by the accidental discharge of a
shotgun In the hands of Burt Msxnfld. a
young companion. Roscoe Maxfleld, a
brother of Burt Maxfleld. received some of
the shot In the calf and ankle of the right
leg, but his Inlurles are not serious. There
Is fear that If complications set In young
KUllns' Injuries may terminate fatally.
Young Kllllns and tho Maxfleld hoys,
who live on Mornlngslde avenue, had gone
Into the woods nearby with a small air
rifle to hunt. While there they met Will
Miller,' a 14-year-old lud who lives on
Cooper avenue, Boy-like, they wanted to
look at the shotgun, and young Miller
handed it to Burt Maxfleld. While the boys
were crowded around looking at the gun
young Maxfleld accidentally pulled the
trigger. The greater part of fhe charge
of shot struck young Kllllns on the side
at the top of the thigh and passed through
the groin, tearing away the flesh and mus
cles and leaving the thighbone exposed.
Young Kllllns was carried to his home by
the father of the Maxfleld hoys. Yesterday
the wounded boy was reported to be re
covered from the shock of the Injury, and
unless blood poisoning or. other complica
tions set In he has a chance fo recovering.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
PES MOINES, Pec. 27. (Special.) Before
the State Teachers' association todiy
Judge H. E. Deemer of the supreme court
said that at present there Is no profession
of teaching In Iowa and that women teach
ers ought not be paid as much wsges as
men In teaching; that teaching now Is hut
a temporary employment or avocation lead
ing to "law or love, medicine or matri
mony." He declared that there should be,
and Will be soma day, a profession of
teaching, but he hoped that love and mat
rimony would not be Interfered with.
Judge Deemer's address was one of four
on the subject, "Shall There Be a Teach
ers' Profession In Iowa?" The strong po
sition that the Judge took upon the sub
ject created, much comment among the
teachers.. Not all were willing to follow
him In the assertion that women teachers
should not be paid as much as men and
that the measure of wages should not be
equal pay for equal service, but compensa
tion on the bas's of the needs to support !
the family dependent upon the salary. '
Judge Peemer held that the question was
properly stated In that It conceded that
there Is not now a teachers' profession In
the state. President McClaln of the State
university, one of the four to read papere
on the subject, said the program commit
tee had refused to Join the popular Ana
nias club singing, "In all things that are
good Iowa affords the best,"
President McClaln discussed the problem
with equal frankness. He said he be
lieved there should be more of the state
domination of schools Instead of less; that
there should be recognition of college diplo
mas; that there should be Interstate comity
with respect to certificating teachers, and
that the Jealousies of Institutions, fos
tered much by mistaken notions of en
thusiastic -alumni, must give way beforo
there is a profession of teaching.
The convention of the State Teachers'
association monopolizes the attention . of
Des Moines. The 'teachers fill all the ho
tels and occupy the center of the stage.
This year there Is little or no politics In
the election of officers to the Important
positions. Interests of the various educa
tional Institutions usually dornlnate. This
year there Is nothing but the personal
choice between the candidates. Only three
men have been mentioned for the position
of president. They are: E. J. Hook of
Winneshiek county, F. E. Lark of Monona
county and George E. FarrelJ of Clinton
county. They are all county superin
tendents, 'as the election of president Is
to go to the county . superintendents' sec
tion this year. There is the annual dis
cussion of the place of meeting, Cedar
Rapids being the only competitor to Des
Moines. "
The resolutions committee of the State
Teachers' association tomorrow will report
favoring state aid for- lilgh schools and
changing the date of the; annual convention
to October. There wtlljibe no resolution
regarding more state normal' schools.
The association went jjr -record by the
adoption of a resolution as favoring leav
ing the new state teachers' certificate law
alone, and thus . turned down the Daven
port people, who are attempting to get the
next legislature to amend It. The resolu
tion passed by the association says thatN
the law hoe much to commend It, and as
It has been In force less than a year they
believe It should be unchanged for at
least two years more, and ask the Thirty-
second general assembly to make no
More stability In the teachers' profession.
Improvement of school houses and sur
roundings, more consolidated schools. Im
provement of the status of the county su
perintendent, a closer supervision by the
state of all schools, Including high schools,
and the appointment of a commission by
the legislature to revise all the school
laws were recommended by President Main
In his annual address.
Prof. Athearn, editor of Midland Schools,
the official organ of the 'association, de
livered a phllllplc against the Sunday comlo
newspaper supplement. He read extracts
from the sayings of Sunday supplement
characters to show the kind of English

The Railroad commission today gave a

In the present freight rates. All the rail
