Eoad Denies Wreck Was Due to Any
Defect in Track.
Portions of Track Equipment Ai
Introduced a Exhibits In Trial
of Weber Damage
The defense In the J35.000 personal Injury
damage suit of Ixiuls A. Weber, railway
mall clerk, against the Rock Island railway
began the Introduction of Its evidence yes
terday and will. It Is expected, occupy
until some time Friday, as It has a large
number of witnesses to examine.
That the defense Intends to reply on the
contention that the wreck was caused by
Kutzleben and not by any defect In the
track was made evident yesterday when a
large collection of broken rail, fishplates
and other portions of the track and numer
ous railroad tools were brought Into court
to be used as exhibits.
All of this collection of railroad Iron,
tools, etc., Is In direct charge of Frank
Owen of Marengo, sheriff of Iowa county,
and he has explicit orders from the district
court of his county not to allow any single
part of the collection out of his custody.
Consequently Sheriff Owen, who Is ac
comodated with a seat near the table oc
cupied by counsel, keeps his eyes peeled
all the time they are being handled when
offered In exhibit.
The first witness for the defense was
W. A. Smith, fireman on the Rocky Moun
tain limited on the night of the wreck at
Homestead. He described tho wreck and
told of finding where the spikes had been
pulled from the tics and that he had
found the angle bar with the holts In
them at the side of the track. Smith was
followed by other employes of tho road,
their testimony. It was stated, being sub
stantially the same as given at the trial
of Kutxleben. It was stated that there
were still twenty-five witnesses for the de
fense to be examined when court adjourned
laat evening for the day.
In Judge Macy's court yesterday at the
trial of Roy M. Stevens, charged with at
tempted criminal ussault on 11-year-old
Christina Chrlstensen, the latter retold her
story the same as she had recited It at
the former trial and on previous occasions
In police court, and before the grand Jury.
Although subjected to a rigid cross-examination
by Judge Ilamer, counsel for the
defendant, the child never varied In her
statements. The case Is not expected to go
to the Jury before Friday or possibly 8at

when the president addressed them as
Mr. President. Ladles and Gentlemen: It
is a real pleasure to me to greet the mem

lesson that any failure to train the average
citizen to a belief in the things of the spirit
no less than the things of the body must
In the long run entail misfortune, snort
coming and possible disaster upon the na

It Is emlnen'ly right that we Americans
should be proud of our material prosperity.

lieve in both, but neither will avail If
something Is not added to them. The ma
terial prosperity Is essential as a founda
tion, Dut It is only a iounoauon, ami upo i
it must be built the superstructure of the
higher moral and spiritual life, for other
wise In itself the material prosperity will
amount to but little. So without educa
tion, It Is necessary that we should seo
that the child ia trained not merely In read
ing and writing, not merely in the elemen-
ry branches or learning siricuy u tif
fined, but trained industrially, trained ade
quately to meet the ever-increasing de
mands' of the complex growth of our in
dustrialism, trained agriculturally, trained
in handicrafts, trained to be more cjncieni
workers In every field of human actlvi'y.
But they must bo trained in more than
that, or the nation will ultimately go down.
They must be trained in the elementary
branches of righteousness, they must be
trained so that It shall come naiurany i
them to abhor that which is evil, or we
never can see our democracy take the place

nations of the earth.

Dr. Livingstone, and later, Henry Stan
ley, both of whom spent much time In
the exploration of Africa, in their memoirs
mention the fact that' members of all the
tribes that they came in contact with pos
posscd beautiful,, white, pearly, sound
teeth, nd that on investigation they found
that this wan due to the fact that the di

The negroes' food ia of the plainest kind
and is seldom, if ever, cookod., II is eaten
as It Is found, with but little preparation.
The cause of unsound and Imperfect
teeth found among civilised people is due
to two important facts the prevalence of
dyspepsia. Indigestion and stomach
troubles, and the food we eat.
In the foods that we eat there la a lack
of phosphates and other materials neces
sary to make repairs and supply the Waste
in the teeth.
Then again few people in civilised coun
tries aro free from dyspepsia, which In
terferes with the whole system and causes
trouble everywhere.
To have sound teeth, cure your dyspep
sia and eat proper foods, and you will have
little trouble with them.
A package of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
