Sir George Blrdwood , one of the most
crudlto men in the India service , once
enabled him to perform almost uncon
sciously a neat bit of detective work.
lie was In Bombay when he was
asked to Investigate the case of n
young nobleman who In applying to
the governor for an appointment repre
sented that he was Just out from Eng
land and that his letters of Introduc
tion had been lost on the voyage.
A few days after Dr. Blrdwood , as he
then was , had undertaken the Investi
gation he mot the young nobleman nt
dinner at the governor's house. The ta
ble decorations of orchids suggested n
conversational opening , and Dr. Bird-
wood's praise drew from the young no
bleman standing opposite :
"You should sec the Amherstln uobl-
11s In Its native woods , sir. "
It was a fatal remark.
"You come from Rangoon , then ! " In
stantly exclaimed Dr. Blrdwood.
The pale face , the silence that could
be felt , the request of the young man
that he might leave the table , all pre
pared the governor and the company
for the subsequent discovery that ho
had absconded from Uangoon with
sonic public funds.

The Nebraska Telephone company
is about to Inaugurate Improvements
In the system at this place that will
amount to n practical rebuilding of
the plant. The company Is negotiat
ing for moro room on the second
lloor of thu Cotton block and If this
Is secured the lloor space occupied
by the central olllt-o will bo about
doubled. A now switch board has
boon ordered with an ultimate capac
ity of ten operators , which It Is o-
poctod will meet the requirements of
the business for a long tlmo to come.
During the years since the exchange
was established hero the company
has been Installing new switch boards
at Irregular Intervals , each one larger
than the ono before , until It Is now
proposed to anticipate the business a
little , and get one that will remain
The central energy system 1 to be
adopted In the exchange at this place.
By central energy means a system
that does away with the batteries at
the subscriber's telephone , a storage
battery being maintained at the sta
tion which gives the same ofllcleney
at nil Instruments. Power for the stor
age battery will bo secured from the
electric light plant. The contra ! en
ergy system does nwny with the ne
cessity of ringing to call the operator.
The lifting of the receiver from the
hook lights a tiny electric lamp in
front of the operator which remains
lighted until the receiver Is replaced
on the hook , when It goes out. This
system Is now being Installed In Fre
mont and will be at Wayne , West
Point , Battle Creek , Hadar , Hosklns ,
Warnorvlllo and Stanton.
The requirements of the now method
arc such that the Insulators will have
to bo changed to a heavier glass , Indi
vidual wires cannot bo used near trees
but they will have to bo replaced with
cabloH. and even the cables now In
use will have to bo changed to others
adapted to the work. So that all that
will remain of the present system will
bo the poles and cross arms.
It Is estimated that the changes will
cost $12,000 to $15,000. Work will bo
commenced as soon ns material can
bo secured , which has been ordered.
Speaking of the expense of maintain
ing a telephone system , when the sug
gestion was offered that the cost to
the subscriber ought to bo reduced ,
Manager Sprcchor said this morning
that about all the average person
takes Into account when figuring the
profits of the telephone company , Is
the cost of labor , rent , heat and light ,
whereas these items arc a very small
portion of the expense. In the fifteen
years that the telephone has been
In operation In Norfolk the system
has been rebtilll twice and thousands
of dollars have been expended in re
pairs besides. Now the system is to
bo rebuilt again. These are among
the Items that the customer must help
pay for , because the company can In
no other way secure a return for the
money Invested. While on the ques
tion of rates , Mr. Sprechor called at
tentlon to the situation of the Fremont
Telephone company , which appeared
by representative before the city coun
cil the other evening and stated that
unless the rates charged In that city
could bo raised the company would
have to go out of business. Following
Is the statement of the Fremont com
pany , as published in the Tribune :
"Toho honorable mayor and coun
cil of the city of Fremont : The pe
tition of Fremont Telephone company ,
now pending before yon , asking for a
sliding scale upon certain conditions ,
Is hereby respectfully withdrawn.
Wo find It will now bo impossible for
us to comply with the conditions
therein mentioned and It would bo
unprofitable to us under present cir
cumstances if wo did so. Wo find by
experience that our present rates are
Inadaquato , and wo must bo allowed
a reasonable Increase or retire from
business. This is inevitable. Wo do
not ask you to take .our word for It.
Wo will bo pleased If you will appoint
n committee to co-oporato with a
committee of disinterested persons
wo shall ask the Commercial club to
appoint , to Investigate our books , and
all other sources of Information desired -
sired , for the purpose of ascertaining
what Is the proper rate. Our company -
pany will pay reasonable expenses of
investigation. By order of our board
of directors. "

Prospect Hill , the Last Resting Place

Seine do/on or moro years ago a
HyHtumntlc effort was organized to Im-
provu the condition of Prospect Hill
pumotory. Nature hnd done much for
the grounds , which nro located HO that
they overlook the surrounding coun
try , on Thirteenth Htroot n mile north
of Norfolk avenue , hut previous to the
movement mentioned not much had
boon Attempted In the way of beau
tifying the city of the dead. The services -
vices of a landscape gardener wore
employed and plans made to park the
grounds. The whole tract was scodcd
to blue grass , walks and drives were
prospected along graceful lines , trees
were planted whore they would add
to the attractiveness of the grounds
and beds of foliage were started. City
water was piped to the cemetery and
hydrants placed at convenient points
from which to sprinkle the lawns.
This .season more than ever the
results of those early plans are be
coming apparent and the effect In
tended by the designers nearer realized
than over before. The lawns have
taken on a beautiful green , the trees
have grown to good size , the follago
beds are prolific and the walks are
clean and well kept. The office of the
association at the gate is neat and
tidy and the whole surroundings bear
the Impress of thoughtful care and
painstaking attention. Ed. Harter Is
now the sexton and he is doing well
the work begun many years ago by
his father , and which was continued
up to nearly the day of his death.
Few towns pay ns much attention
to the sleeping place of the dead as
does Norfolk , and the credit for this
commendable work Is duo to n small
number of people who are either
members of the cemetery association
or who have relatives in tarred there
and are consequently personally in
terested In keeping the grounds beau

"What n curious habit we have , " re
marked the street ear philosopher , "of
saying that n man Is worth so and so
many thousands of dollars. I know
men who have many dollars who , judg
ed from any reasonable standard that
I know , are not worth anything at all.
tt is refreshing to hear occasionally of
men who do happen to be worth a
great deal even though they are
rleh and who are anxious that people
should forget they have money and
think of them only for their qualities.
All the same. It always gives me an un
pleasant turn when I see a man's
worth put down In dollars. " New
