As a special convenience for the baseball fan who, when traveling on a railroad train in the past, often has been forced to wait in suspense until the end of his journey to learn the fate of his favorite team during a crucial series, the Missouri Pacific is providing base ball scores of all games m both major leagues to its principal pas senger trains. The scores are sup plied by a Western Union ticker installed in the passenger traffic department at St. Louis and are wired twice daily from St. Louis, the first at 3 p. m., and the final score when the games are finish ed. Each train and Pullman porter is provided with a copy of the tel egram and announces the scores on his car. Then information then will be posted on a bulletin board pro vided for that purpose. This service will continue throughout the re mainder of this season, Missouri Pacific Lines officials announced. The system was begun Friday after noon. Following is a list of the trains which will receive (the baseball scores: Nos. 3 and 4, between St. Louis and Hot Springs, Ark., and Texas; No. 8, from San Antonio to St. Louis; Nos. 11 and 12 between St. Louis and Pueblo.; No. 102, New Orleans to Little Rock; Nos. 115 and 116, between -Kansas City and New Orleans; No. 220, Hot Springs to Memphis; Nos. 15 and 16, between Kansas City and St. Louis; No. 20, between Wichita and St. Louis; Nos. 214 and 215, Joplin and Kansas City; Nos. 107 and 108, Kansas City and Omaha and 13 and 14, St. Louis and Pueblo.

PREDICT STRONG VOTE IN FOURTH FOR SANDERS A meeting of supporters of former Governor J. Y. Sanders was held at Sanders' Shreveport headquarters Monday night, when reports were made by men from every section of the Fourth Congressional District as well as from the city itself. All gave full assurance from each parish in the district that Sanders' majority would be overwhelming. Elmer Stewart, attorney of De-Ridder, called at headquarters and stated that in his opinion Sanders would . sweep Beauregard and that Broussard would not receive 250 votes in that parish, notwithstanding claims made by his Lake Charles supporters. All factions are united in his support, he stated. The report was also made from Vernon parish, in the Eighth district, that this stronghold of the former Governor is almost solid for him. Silas Ponder reported that Sabine parish will return a large majority for Mr. Sanders. Shreveport Times of Tuesday. LEAVING THINGS TO CHANCE The overwhelming mass of humanity goes through life without plan or scheme, except for the immediate future. When one asks oneself why this state of affairs ex ists, the inevitable conclusion is that it is quite impossible to adapt oneself to one's environment with sufficient exactitude to guarantee a stable uniform existence. Change is an invariable law of nature. If such be the prevailing conditions in everyday affairs, .at least that part of those affairs which has to do with gaining a subsistence, how much more so is the physical condition of the human body left to chance? Who bothers about his inner mechanism so long as things appear to run smoothly? Pew people enjoy perfect health: something: somewhere is always wrong. If the defect does not cause sufficient discomfort, it is neglected until it finally becomes unbearable, or the ailment under mines the structure or functions of the organ or organs in secret. and sudden death is the only object ive evidence that it ever existed. We should not forget that be sides disease the tissues of the human body are subject to wear and tear. Unlike the mechanical device with which it is so often compared, the organs have the quality of re pairing or renewing themselves. The degree, however, is limited and depends on a number of complex factors. Uf these the condition of the intestinal tract, its freedom from waste matter and stagnation may rank as the most important. I here is some poetry but more truth about the apple a day keeping the doctor away than people are apt 1 to think. Toxic substances are alU snrA r ef,-nt v -i- which react on the kidneys, the liv- er and the heart. What they are no one seems to know, but all do-- tors tnnnr t,af frn n;,.-? "it do more to keep health up to stand- ard or help restore it when en- daneered than any drug. xnen tnere is the heart, the pre- ence of which is seldom apprehend- ed until it begins to register com- plaint. It works 24 hours out of ev-1 ery day and from the cradle to the grave with rest periods of only a fraction of a second between beats, yet it is strained by overwork, ex- pected to do overtime without pensation, exposed to toxins from bacteria, tobacco, whiskey, to the effects of close rooms and bad air Broussard Campaign Shown Up As A Dismal Failure NW Orleans. Aug. 31. "The dismal failure . of Mrs. Ruf f m G. Pleasant to stir up enthusiasm over her widely advertised meeting at the Athenaeum 'Annex' m mis wivy last Monday night was one of the most bitter disappointments of the Broussard campaign managers," declared Thomas Killeen, state cam paign manager for J. Y. banders, candidate for the United States Senate, in a brief statement issued today from headquarters in the Roosevelt. "By creating an air of mystery as to what would be discussed in her widely heralded at tack on Governor banders, tne meeting was counted upon to draw a large and curious audience. By several careful counters, however, it numbered approximately 400 although The Times-Picayune claim- Pd 800. "Such evidences of lack of in terest in the Broussard campaign are multinlvino- daily in every sec tion of the State and emphasize the sham and the falaity of the claims of large attendance that are Being put out by The Times-Picayune and The New Orleans States in tneir desperate efforts to bolster up the dr-noni-ncr Prnnssard cause." - Continuing, Manager Killeen said: "The exaggerated attendance at Mrs. Pleasant's meeting carried in the reports of The Times-Picayune and The New Orleans States nas a t Vom flr pans public to the duplicity of the Brou.4 - sard rtttintrs in other sections jf the State. "An illustration in point was the Broussard-Long rally at Alexandria last Saturday night," added Mr. Killeen. "The Times-Picayune announced the attendance at 3000 The New Orleans States, in the hope of further misleading the peo-. t u ctofo rOanorl thp at- tendance at 5000.

Most people have heard of the kidneys and liver, but they know naught of the importance of these masses of cells and connective tissue fibers. Nature has wisely protected them by locating them beneath bony structures, and injury through external insult is comparatively rare. Unfortunately these organs are exposed to damage from internal agencies. Again overwork and toxic substances are the main causes dge oration and decay.

Broussard's speech created no enthusiasm. Long made his customary speech, which, as you know, is in the interest of his candidacy for Governor.' "From Alexandria, Broussard was said to have had a triumphal procession westward, winding uj witn a tremenaous ovation at up-elousas on Monday night. The ut ter falsity of these claims is clear ly shown ' by the following joint telegram from the Sheriff, Charles Thibodeaux, and the Clerk of Court, Henry Lastrapes, Jr., of St. Landry parish: 'Broussard meeting held here last night. Attendance about one-third less than Sanders meeting. Situation remains about the same.'

It will put our community, so far as this important matter is concerned, in the same class with those businesses whjich are conducting themselves without knowing or caring how they stand or whither they are going. It will fasten on the State the public lack of confidence and the censure which are always visited on such businesses.

State Registrar. o - Hating Oneself III Hate, In the course of time, creates poison In the system as well as In the mind, and all evil emotion is bad for the health. One erf the earliest-discovered truths was that health and morality depend on each other, and j -any religions are built largely upon hygiene. as Majority had a majority of 1 y tS c-ommusion- ers over his opponent, the effect was electric. The decisive victory for Sanders is disclosed in the totals which read as follows: Sanders G4; Broussard 4 GO, or a majority for Sanders of 198. Even in the three wards in which Broussard secured a majority of the commissioners, the gains were negligible. These were in the First, Third and Fourth Wards where the result stood as follows: First Ward, Sanders 20; Broussard 25; Third Ward, Sanders 56, Broussard 59 ; Fourth Ward, Sanders 24, Broussard 26. The emptiness of the Broussard showing in the First and Fourth Wards wi, be mQTS TeadUv under. stood when it is remembered that these two wards since time out of mind have been marching at the head of the "Regular Organization with disciplined regularity and the " result in each is discounted in ad vance by Mayor CTKeefe and the Choctaws as absolutely certain, In the Third Ward John p gul. livan is fighting under the Brous. sard banner to retain his own leadership in the ward, Broussard with him being a secondary consideration. Sullivan offered to sur render all upon the altar of reg- ularity and return to the fold, if the Choctaws would allow him to retain a one-half vote in their councils. They sternly refused, telling him his surrender must be unconditional and complete. Them, after having raised the milk whit? flag and having been scorned, he attempted to raise his. erstwhile followers to battle. The Regulars held that a flag of truce, . raised at the beginning of a fight is no more of an 4 inspiration in political battle than in actual war, 'and they have no fear about wht is going to happen in 'the .Third Ward in this contest. But the principal benefit that the 1 -----..-o banders forces derive from this i decisive victory is the fact that having such a preponderance of i a commissioners is an emphatic an Broussard workers that "Sanders wU1 be knifed at tne Plls" With Sanders men on guard and in con- trol, the Broussard emmissarics will now have to find some other ex- cuse when they go gum-shoeinjr in the parishes to spread "confiden- tial" reports about the treachery of the Regular Organization Jl 1 BRIDGE .
