Service Under Leadership
of Colonel Neville.
We will see service as a regiment
and every effort is being made to
hasten federal recognition and have
the S:venth regiment designated as
a unit subject to draft with Ahc
forces of the United States. This
will exeniftt.aU draft men.
Those not willing to wait can en
list in the army or navy.
Recruiting for the Seventh goes
on as usual. .
You have nothing to lose and
everything to gain by sticking.
P. S. Don't ask foolish questions.
The foregoing bulletin was posted
in the Seventh Nebraska headquar
ters in Farnam street Thursday morn
. ing. The bulletin was read and re
read by practically every member who
is in Omaha waiting patiently . for
some word from Washington.
Some Caustic Comment.
Probably 40 guards were loafing
about the headquarters. About every
so often some fellow would 'break

ment caustic, sarcastic and otherwise
concerning-the outlook for the "Un
"It's politics," rasped one recruit.
Senator Hitchcock doesn't want Gov
ernor Neville to resig.. for fear that
Lieutenant Governor Edgar Howard
will automatically become governor
an' Howard's a Bryan man."
In little groups the recruits would
l (bunch up in a corner and try to "kid"
themselves into believing that every
thing would come out in the wash, but
on the whole the attitude of nearly all
of them did not appear to be very op
Much Feeling at Lincoln.
(From a Stall Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Dec. 15. (Special.)
What will be the outcome in the case
of the Seventh regiment is problem
atical. Colonel Neville still has hopes,
and while he sees his men falling
all about him from the heavy shell
of the War department, he is keep
ing up his caurage and appears to be
lieve that he will be able to with
stand the shock and pu:l the regiment
Captain Lee Metcalfe, adjutant of
the regiment and captain of the head
quarters company, says he lost three
from the company. Captain Herbert
Goodi is out of the city, but it is
said, that the Lincoln company, of
which he is the commander, lost at
Soon All Will Go.
The regretable feature is that as
membership in the regiment dpes not
exemtp a man from the draft, unless
the regiment is recognized soon, it
will lose, every man in it of the draft
age. This will sadly deplete some of
the companies, and they can only be
recruited up again by taking in men
below or above the draft age.
' Why the regiment should be al
lowed to recruit up to approximately
1,800 men, the maximum, get every
thing ready, take the government in
spection, prepare itself in every par-
ticular with the exception of arm and
! uniforms) and then at the time when
the men believed things were coming
their wav and there was hope of fed
eral service, get the blow which was V
given it by the orders ot yesterday,
t has not been made clear. I
Some of its officers say that it is
all right and that trjcy could not ex
pect to be called before the draft men,
but it is well known that they have
fully believed membership in the
Seventh exempted them from the
draft and that they went into the or
ganization so that they could be un
der home officers and with home
Example of the Sixth.
When the "Dandy .Sixth" was shot
to pieces by an order of the war de
partment there was much feeling
among members of the Seventh that
11 a like fate awaited it. However, as
surance -was aiwn, officially or un
officially that the new regiment
would go in intact and with that as
surance officers and men have been
r drilling faithfully ever since so that
as far as efficiency in drill is con
cerned the companies outside of the
manual of arms are in pretty good
fThc all absorbing question among
the officers now is "What shall we
do to be saved." It, is known that
some faults were discovered in the
recent federal inspections, but it is
also known that these are of a minor
nature and caareadily be remedied,
and, according to the governor, in no
way are responsible for the order of
the department which has hit the
regiment so hard.
Both Colonel Neville and Captain
Metcalfe, adjutant of the regiment,
say they are not in the least discour
aged, although it is plain to be seen
that they are considerably disappoint
ed and that the blow hit hard. How
ever like good soldiers and good citi
zens they are standing up under it
and aver that they are more deter
mined than ever to make a success of
the regiment and make it once more
worthy of the name I'Lucky Seventh."

There has always been an argument on that point with
the so-called "Ethical" Dentist taking the stand that No
Dentist Should Guarantee His Work.
Medical and Dental Experts point out that "The life of
Dental Work depends on the human tissue and no one can
I thoroughly agree to that
"Pyorrhoea may upset all calculations, and uncleanliness,
neglect and ill health may undo the Dentist's good work
and in a few months the patient unjustly blames his den
tist." I again concur, but the REAL POINT IS STILL UNDER
I CLAIM THE PUBLIC IS ENTITLED TO PROTECTION
AND A GUARANTEE OF VALUE RECEIVED FOR EV
ERY DOLLAR SPENT, WHETHER IT BE IN A DEPART
MENT STORE OR A DENTAL OFFICE. '
My personal opinion is that the unwillingness of the pro
fession as a whole to give a guarantee with their work is
BORN OF SELFISHNESS.
The scientific plea is but an EXCUSE and not the REAL'
REASON for refusing to take any responsibility and ask
ing the public to assume all the risk.
HOLD, it is the DUTY of EVERY DENTIST to examine the mouth,
throat and teeth of every patient; to make note of the nctual con
ditions to recognize conditions tending to render dental work un
satisfactory because of diseases, neglect, uncleanliness or otherwise
anjU to frankly inform the patient of these conditions, and if the
work is undertaken it should be with this distinct understanding.
In all other cases I Declare it not only right and just but positively
good business, to guarantee both the workmanship and material en
tering into any piece of dental work to be EXACTLY AS REPRE
SENTED and Most important of all This guarantee should be
given by the PERSON MORALLY AND FINANCIALLY RESPON
SIBLE and not by any hired Manager or Non-Resident (therefore
process-proof) owner.' ,
MY GUARANTEE i like my personal word or bond how good
that is any bank will tell you.

It is not necessary to use a painful

with a little delatonc handy you can
keep the skin entirely free from

the hairs are gone. To guard against
