games out ot fifteen iayed. . One of
these was to Highland Tark college of
Des Moines and the other to the local

own floor. 1
Among tha teams over which the
Bcthanlta ware victorious are: The
University of Nebraska, University of
Kanohs, University of South Dakota and
the Lincoln Young Men's Christian as

Cotner lost Its first game In two years
to a Nebraska team. Squires, Brltt, Mo

that will dassle most of their opponents.
At tha University ot Omaha of last
year's squad there are: Jerome at cen

DOCTORING fTHE MAN OF IRON
Some Pconllarltlee of . Bismarck
Noted by the Chancellor's
Dr.'1 Schweninger, who, was Bismarck's
physician tor eighteen years, remarked In
the 'course of a recent address in Vienna
that he saw the . chancellor -weep three
times; when the old emperor died, when
his wife died, and when he was dismissed
from' office.' This last "affected him so
deeply that t feel Inclined to assert that
had it not' come,, he would perhaps be
still living." The doctor had tried to
convince. the young emperor that the al
legations, made' as to.Cismarck's incom
petence because of his addiction, to alcohol
and morphine were untrue. The chan
cellor 'did, not' habitually use - morphine,
and his not being an "Alkohollker" was
attested by the. steadiness of his hand.
"He could shoot a bird on the wing, and,
like Tell, he could have hit the apple on
hla son's head,'' during the last years of
his life. Dr. Schwenninger , gave an in
teresting account of how he came to be
Bismarck's physician. It was through the
chancellor's son, to whom a friend had
recommended the doctor. Count Wilhelm
Ulumarck weighed 236 pounds when he
was taken In hand. Ten months later he
weighed 176 pounds, and looked so changed
that the . doctor did not recognise him.
Then came the prince's turn. Dr. Schwen
inger denies that Bismarck did not want
to answer his questions, whereupon be
had said to him: "Then you had better
get a veterinarian." He did have an
even harder time than ho had had with
the son to persuade the prince to obey
him absolutely, which was the condition
of his remaining with him. -Once, when
Blamatck.had drunk, without permission,
six glasses jf buttermilk, the doctor
packed his trunk' and was on the point of
leaving when a sudden attack ot Internal
trouble induced him to remain. On an
other oocaslon, a conference of ministers
had to be postpoded because the doctor
would not allow the chancellor to be
awakened;, his message to the statssmen
was: "The prince's health . Is moro im
portant than all ministers and all poli
tics." New York Post.

OLD DOBBIN CHEWS ITS QUID
Kansns Ping Gets the Habit from
Master and Prefers Fine.
"Whoa! Whoa, there! Stop that horse!"
shrieked a man at Eighth and Grand
avenue, Kansas City, as the animal was
deliberately following another man upon
the sidewalk. The second man had In
his hand a small package, and when he
turned at the sound of the alarm It waa
seen that the horse was Intent on getting
to the package.
"Oh. now, don't get nervous, Kit," he
said, soothingly, to Jim animal. ''I'll give
you a chew."
Then the man opened a package of fine
cut tobacco, took an ordinary "chew"
for himself and divided the remaining
part of a newly opened sack with the
horse. The animal took the large quid
and actually seemed to smile as It
munched away on It rythmically as would
a cow on her cud.
The owner of the horse, William Mc
carty, a claim agent for tlie Illinois Cen
tral railroad, explained that Kit was very
fond of her "chew," and whenever he
took one where Kit could see him she
would follow him even up a pair of steps
and Into a house but that she, too, was
"She don't seem to want tobacco unless
she catches sight of some one In the act
of taking a chew, and then she will have
hers, no matter who the man may be who
exposed the weed," he explained.
"What got your horse Into the habit;
how waa It acquired?" asked a dignified
appearing man who waa in the little
coterie which was watching "Kit" enjoy
her wad in fine-cut.
"I did it," replied MeCarty. "I begun
by nipping off a little every time I took a
chew In the animal's presence and hand
ing it to her, as she always was curiously
nosing about tq see what I had. It was
not long until she would take a chew of
tobacco in preference to a lump of sugar."
"Does the animal expectorate?" asked
the dignified person in all seriousness.
"Well, not so as to be noticed," replied
her ownesr "The horse swallows the
Juice from the tobacco, and finally the
quid Itself. And I am here to tell you
that I have found the tobacco far more
healthy for a horse once In a while than
sugar every day, as Is given to trick
horses." Arthur McKnlght. an old race horse
man and- official starter at most of the
big race tracks in the country, chanced
to be present when the tobacco chewing
horse was under discussion.
"I was born and reared down here In
the West bottoms," said McKnlght, "and
I recall Old Tim, a tobacco chewing fire
horse that used to be on the truck in
engine house No. 1 down on Union ave
nue. Chief Hale will remember Tim.
Why, he was so vicious after a chew, If
he saw any one with a plug he would al
most break his chain to get tj you. And
If you took a chew and passed him un
noticed Tim would reward you with a
kick. Yes. Tim was a confirmed chewer,
and I have known of several good race
horses which had the habit. They are
Just llke human beings; when they get
the desire for nicotine it sticks to them."
"How dreadful," sighed the ministerial-
looking spectator. "It is a pity that
human beings could not keep their In
jurious habits without tempting Innocent
'Tobacco at Intervals is good for a
horse," replied McKnlght. "It prevents
many of the ailments from which they
suffer." Kansas City Journal.

HOT BATTLE WITH A BEAR
Forest Ranger, After Killing a Cab,
Has to Aecoant to Its
When Forest Ranger Samuel Lebo ot
Lucullus, McIIenry township, , Philadel
phia, heard his dog barking over against
the ridge the other afternoon, and he
flung his rifle across his shoulder and
started down the fire lane In the direction
of the baying, he didn't have any Idea
of the excitement that was In store for
him. He had seen bear tracks at a spring
over that way several days before, but
the season for gunning Bruin not yet
having come In he paid no particular at
tention to this, as bear tracks in that
section of McHenry township are almost
as common as sheep tracks. would be up
In Tioga county. ,
The other day when his dog hit the'
trail and began to bay its ocliofriff
chorus along the chestnut ridge, how
ever, Lebo scooted He reached a point
where the fire lane Intersects an old road
Just In time to see two cubs making for
the thick alders near the spring. One
shot and the little fellow in the rear went
down among the leaves with a squeal.
The forward bear succeeded in getting
out of sight before he could shoot again.
Lebo waa bending over the fallen
youngster when he heard something snap
ping twigs back of, him. He turned Just
In time to find himself confronted by an
old she bear, which in her first attack
knocked his rifle from his hands and
went after him In hammer-and-tongs
style. Lebo's dog was upon the bear In
an instant, and thus afforded Lebo a
temporary advantage while tha bear
turned Its attention to lt canlns tor
mentpr; but not long enough for him to
recover his gun, which, though It lay
within sight, had been flung at least ten
feet away. Before managing to reach the
spot where the gun lay Lebo had been
landed several blows and cuffs that made
his ears ring. The bear seemed to Rnow
the meaning of the gun and appeared to
be determined to keep the man from
getting hold of it.
Between the bothersome dog and his
own agility, however, Lebo finally suc
seeded In getting far enough out of the
bear's reach to lay hold ot his rifle. A
shot at short range sent the bear to Its
knees, but It made a desperate attempt
to renew the fight, this time striking the
dog a blow that killed It on the spot But
Its wound prevented the bear from re
newing the attack, and a second shot fin
Lebo would have stopped to take ac
count of hla hurts Just then if something
else hadn't happened. As he turned to
ward the dead cub he beheld the second
cub nosing around its dead relative. It
was unlucky mourning tor the second cub,
for in another lnstand It, too, lay dead
on the ground.
Lebo found that his coat was torn In
several places and there waa a pretty
bad gash on one side of his neck, where
the bear's claw had "swiped" him. but
aside from that he had come out of the
battle unscratcbed. The loss of his bear
dog was the severest ot alL Philadelphia
Odd "that It Is the story without any
