The committee on public works
suggested that the pumps at the wa

Norfolk has been remarkably free
from disease and epidemics during
the winter , but with the approach of
spring there has dovclopod an epi
demic of the grip and colds that
threatens to lilvado every homo be
fore Its course is run. The smallpox
that has had a run of several scasnim
hero has practically died out and
there Is not now a case In the city ,
neither arc there scarlet fever , diph
theria , measles , whooping cough , or
cases of the mumps that have been
manifest during several seasons past ,
so that with the colds and the grip
at the close of the season Norfolk Is
getting off very fortunately
First Spadeful Turned for New
VERY LITTLE FROST IN EARTH
The Manager of the Company Says
That They Pay Union Wages Car
load of Tools Coming From Des
Molnes Is Delayed.
[ From Wednesday's Dally. ]
Ground was broken yesterday for
the now Nebraska state hospital for
the Insane in Norfolk. It was the
beginning of work upon the only
state institution In the northern half
of the state and the ( Irst insane hos
pital to be built on the cottage plan
In the west.
The ground was broken for the ad
ministration or main building. The
contractors found very little frost in
the earth and bellve , if everything
goes well , that they will nave the cel
lar for the structure dug out by the
end of the week. The excavating lias
been let to W. P. Dixon.
Just at this time the company Is
hold up by delayed transit in a car
load of tools which were shipped
from Des Moines last week. The
Union Paclfis has had a tracer out
today for the missing car. When this
lot of working apparatus arrives the
scaffoldings will be erected and the
work will bo hastened. It will be
necessary for the company to finish
by Octobed 1 , and In order to do this
a largo force of men must bo con
"Wo will probably hire from fifty
to seventy-five men all of the time , "
said W. B. Hester , manager for the
company In Norfolk. "We had ex
pected to bo forced to import more
than we will need to , having found
a great many In Norfolk who are
available. We only need to Import
a few expert workmen. We now
have forty or fifty men cleaning
"What about the trouble with the
men who wont out to clean bricks ? "
"There was no trouble , ' " said Mr.
Hester. "Wo had farmerly planned
to pay our men by the day. There
were a large number of old men and
boys wanting work and it was evi
dently unfair to pay them all alike.
So we determined to pay them at so
much per thousand. It Is true that
some of them who went out , turned
around and came back. The reason ,
In many cases , was that they lacked
tools. Wo required each man to
bring a hatchet along with him.
READY FOR COLLEGE BASE BALL
Two Games to be Played on Eastern
[ From Wednesday's Dally. ]
Now York , March 23. College base
ball for the season of 1904 makes its
debut on the athletic stage today
with games between Yale and Trin
ity at New Haven and Princeton and
the University of New York at Prin
ceton. These contests arc , of course ,
but little moro than practice games
and it will bo several weeks yet before -
fore the sport Is on In earnest.
The advent of the real spring
weather has brought the nines out
on to the diamond In full force and
at most of the big Eastern colleges
the teams are ready for actual play.
The number of dates that have been
arranged for the next few weeks in
dicate that a largo part of the pre
liminary practice in preparation for
the important games of the year
will bo in the nature of games with
weaker teams. The result of the
games in which Yale and Princeton
engage in today is awaited with con
siderable interest as both institutions
expect to have strong nines this year.
The issue at Long Pine this year
will bo , "Sliall there bo saloons or
not ? " A caucus was held for the llrst
time In years. P. J. Murphy and J.
C. Castle were nominated.
Hov. Father Haley of Wayne Is In
the city to deliver tonight at the
Church of the Sacred Heart , his lec
ture on "Tho Llfo of Christ. " It is
anticipated that the address will be
one well worth the hearing.
C. E. Saundcrs , now at the head of
the cigar doparoment for E. E. Bruce ,

tion of the state , was in Norfolk to

Elaborate Costume Ballon St.
SENATOR ALLEN A HOD CARRIER
One of the Moet Drllllnnt Social Func
tions Yet Known In the County
Sent , Which all the People of the
"Tipper Ten Attended.
[ From Suturdny'ii Dully. ]
Madison , Nob. , March III. Special
to The News : For some time past
it has been announced that there
would bu a dance take place In the
lleln opera house on the 17th of
March. Invitations In a very neat
and appropriate style had been sent
out and It was announced ( hat a'l '
taking part In the dance should ap
pear In continue appropriate to the
occasion , therefore great preparations
were being mndo by all classes to
see how varied and well this could
be done This was not to bu a mas
querade dance , but one of costume ,
each representing an Irish character
as nearly as the Individual Idea could
make It. The house was beautifully
and tastily decorated In colors lilting
for the occasion , hence It Is not nec
essary to say the predominate color
was green. The costumers began to
arrive early In the evening nnd with
the expectation thai something was
going lo happen worth seeing. A
largo number of spectators had ar
ranged themselves In comfortable
seals placed for the purpose and they
were surely not dlsappolnled. As
one after another of the costumers ar
rived It began to dawn on the specta
tors that It was going to bo some
thing unusual. The members of the
orchestra were decorated to kill.
Dick Forosyth were a green rosetlo
bow on Ihe lapel of his coat thai
stuck oul a yard on each side of his
shoulders and Iho slrcamors hung
lo the floor. McGulncss had the ad
vantage of most as It was not nec
essary for him to make much change.
However , ho made a very presentable
appearance of an old time bojj trot
ter , and every member was very ap
propriately fixed up pending Ihe lime
for Iho grand march. Those present
took the opportunity to introduce
themselves lo their friends and ad
mirers and to join In a wallor two-
step as their fancy struck them , but
very soon the house crowded and a
call for the grand march was heard ,
and each couple took Us place , with
a couple from Humphrey and a cou
ple from Madison to lead off. Of all
Iho slghls ever seen Ibis would cap
Ibe climax. People representing
over beard of. Hero are a few of
especial mention. First there were
six couples from Humphrey whoso
coslumes were very elaborate as they
were Imported direct from the auld
sod especially for this occasion. Then
came Senator Allen with his magnifi
cent physique and looked a giant
Mick hod carrier , and leaning upon his
arm what seemed to bo a moro pig
my In stature. Then a very striking
contrast. Then a very striking con
trast. Willis E. Reed was the pigmy
IhlB lime and Irylng to lead a lady
who looked seven foot tall and six
fool wide. Then Ihoro was J. Donovan
van , Dr. Condon , Mr. Maltlson , Mr.
Grant , Mr. Ed Frlcklo , Mr. Hume ,
Mr. Frasier , Paul Brlnkman and nu
merous others and for a nice neat
dapper young swell Irish gentleman
of the upper crust Mr. A. Scannell
took the dough. Then for a tall spec
imen of a genuine Irish peasant who
loked for all the world like ho had
just been transplanted with his black
thorn shlllelah In his hand , Mr. Plcrco
was that same ; then two Irish po
licemen Buddy Nicholson and Mr.
Cato look Ihe honors ; Ihen Ed O'Shea ,
Dr. Smart and others too numerous
to mention. Among the ladles Mrs.
W. E. Reed was especially good. She
looked as If she had jusl arrived from
across the pond and so complete was
her make-up that the most Intlmato
friends did not know her. Then the
real old Irish washer woman , Miss
Long. But the very prettiest and
most tasty dress of green was worn
by Miss Hume. Miss Allen was very
neatly attired and made a striking
appearance , also the Misses Snurc ,
Frlckio , Wills , Grant , Spence , Fayes ,
Horshams and among the other la
dles were Mrs. Mattlson , Mrs. Foro-
sylh , Mrs , Donovan , Mrs. Smart ,
Mrs. Brlnkman and Mrs. Wolfo. A
native would have been puzzled to
know whether it was a representa
tion of Ireland or a function being
held in the court of Austria , so bril
liant and dazzling were the effects.
It lasted till the wee1 sma' hours of
morning , each departing for his homo
declaring it was Iho most elaborate
event in the history of Madison.
Dance at Alnsworth.
Alnsworth , Nob. , March 19. Spe
cial to The News : St. Patrick's day

at Alnsworth hall. There was a prize
offered for the two raggodest In the

received a flno cake and Mrs. Ogden
received a line gold ring. The music
was flno nnd everybody enjoyed the
dancing until 2 a. m' ' . The hall was
Fined for Shooting Song Birds.
Plattsmouth , Nob. , March 18. G.E.
Young , a special game warden , caused

SPECIALIST OFREPUTATION ,
Years of Special Practice Affordlno
FACTS WORTH MENTIONING
By Dr. Caldwell.
Several years ago. while In private
practice , I thought It wrong to adver
tise , simply bocauflo I Lad boon told
so and had not had experience enough
to know hotter. After a whllo I dis
covered a valuable plan of treatment
In certain cases , nnd fortunately ob
tained a largo number of patients ,
enough to fully test my plan and
provo its success. I thereupon pre
pared a lengthy paper upon the sub
ject and read It before the state med
ical society. What was the result ?
A half a dozen members took the
floor to say what the treatment had
been for a hundred years ( back , nnd
to claim that the old treatment ,
though unsuccessful , should bo con
tinued , notwithstanding that the now
treatment had been successful. I
thought differently and continued to
use the now method , and made re
markable cures of cases that had
been pronounced incurable. My bus
iness increased rapidly as each per
son that I cured told some friend ,
who came In turn and was cured.
Bach patient advertised mo a little.
What then ? In that largo city there
wore not more than 400 cases of the
kind. I cured every case that came
to mo and then had nothing to do
except the ordinary business of a
local physician. I know there were
hundreds and thousands of others
elsewhere , who might bo cured if
they only know ; nnd I advertised.
Cured hundreds of others and I have
advertised over since. I have re
lieved more suffering , cured moro pa
tients , made moro people happy , and
done moro good generally because I
have told the people what I can do ,
and I shall go on with the good work
as long as my strength will permit.
I advertise because I have some
thing worth advertising. I have made
myself competent by years of spec
ial study and experience , and by the
expenditure of largo sums of money.
By advertising I place before the people
ple the facts which enable them to
> cnow what I can do. I thereby roaob
thousands , who , given up by local
physicians or unsuccessful treated ,
give thomsoves up as incurable. I
cure them and thereby enlarge my
Held of usefulness. By no other way
than advertising could these people
have known that they could bo cured.
Every thrifty and prosperous busi
ness in life , save those of law and
medicine , advertise freely. Lawyers
do not , for they only use in business
what others have made for thorn
years before. They only do what has
been written. "Regular" doctors do
not advertise for the same reason.
They have nothing new , nothing
which someone else has not written
or told them of , they get their know
ledge from the books. A man may
read medicine until ho is blind and
then know nothing of It To bo suc
cessful ho must apply his own mind.
Make his own researches , and to do
that ho must have room and oppor
tunity. Ho must have cases , hun
dreds of them , and compare results.
If ho docs not do this bo is a ma
chine without novelty , skill or in
genuity , still plowing with a wooden
plow , still traveling on foot or horse
back , and ignoring the advantages of
steam , living but not learning. The
same is true of a lady doctor.
Below you will find published the
names and addresses of some of the
recent cures that I have made. These
people's afflictions wore , under the
ordinary physician's care , considered
hopeless , and no prospects for a
