and miserable night to guard u wagon
loutl of goods. , lie shivered In the un
sheltered place for some hours ponder
ing many things , and then a brlghl
thought struck him Just as the colonel
came around on his tour of Inspection ,
"Colonel , " ho nskcd , "how much is
this wagon worth ? "
" 1 don't know , " was the answer.
"Much or little , we can't afford to
lose It. "
"Well , but , colonel , " persisted the
umntciir soldier , "you might give me
n rough Idea of the value. "
"About 200 , " said the colonel tcslily.
"Very well , " was Ihe answer ; "I will
come down to the camp and give you n
check for the amount. Then I'll turn
In. I wouldn't catch my death of

Fourteenth Century Doctors.
Syuge's "Social Life In England"
quotes a number of fourteenth century
hints to success for physicians :
Suppose you know nothing , say there
Is nn obstruction of the liver. Perhaps
the patient will say , "Nay , master , it
Is my head or legs that trouble me. "
Repeat that it comes from the liver ,
nnd especially use the word "obstruc-
lion , " for piillents elo not understand
1L which Is Important
Never dine with n patient who has
not paid you. It will bo cheaper to
get your dinner nt an Inn , for such
feasts are usually deducted from the
surgeon's fee. . .
When you are treating n wound or
accident , the friendsof Ihe patient
should be excluded , for they may faint
nnel cause a disturbance , but some
times n higher fee may be got from
persons present fainting and breaking
their heads ngntnsl wood nnd Ihe like
than from Ihe principal pnllent.
Secret Society Among Sese Islanders.
The Sese Islander : * huve attained n
peculiar notoriety In Uganda because
of n secret society called the Bachlchl ,
which is not n burial society , although
Its members lake u deep and intelli
gent Interest In all deaths and burials
In their midst. In the more retired vil
lages , although greatly discouraged by
the British authorities , it Is said to be
still the custom for the sorrowing rol- to bear the body of the deceased
wrapped in bark on a rough bier to
some forest thicket , desolate ravine or
other unfrequented spot , where It la
left unburled by the bearers , who nev
er revisit the place again. The Bachl
chl , who are denizens of a neighboring
village , nnd distant relatives of the
deceased avoid the.nccesslly of burial
or cremation and show Ihelr respect
for the deceased by simply eating him.

His News Ads Get Results.
Omaha , Nob. , May 11. Special to
The News : The second annual con
vention of Iho State Electrical society
opunud heio today. President E. A.
Bullock of Norfolk , In his opening ad
dress , emphasized the fact that the
object of the association is not to
ialso rates but to derive mutual bono-
lit from Interchange of Ideas regardIng -
Ing electricity and electric plants. Not
oven uniformity In rates Is ttlmcd at ,
duo to different cost problems In var
ious localities.
Mr. Uullock suggested the forma
tion of a "new business" department
for small plants of the state. Ho
would have nn expert solicitor cm-
ployed who could devote A small portion
tion of his time at each of several
plants , getting new business for It.
In this way each town could bo care
fully canvassed annually but without
the heavy all-year expense on each
plant. In this regard the speaker
said :
"Thoro is n great deal of business
1 : . your town that can bo secured for
you by some man wljo has no pecun
iary Interest In your plant , and who Is
a stranger to your * customers. People
arc'BO apt to bollovo the stranger In
preference to ybu , not because your
reputation for truth and voracity is
bad , but because anything you say is
discounted. "
Good Results From Advertising.
Mr. Bullock , who has secured ex
ceedingly satisfactory results from his
advertising In The Norfolk Dally
News , told the Convention that news
paper advertising pays big returns if
used right. In this connection ho
said :
"I nm a strong advocate of local
newspaper advertising , h.ast year wo
used practically no other method of
soliciting rcsldeiico business , and our
now customers from this source were
almost double that of any other one
"You can use this space not only to
secure now business , but to keep your
customers and the people In your lo
cality acquainted with your plant it
gives them a personal interest in it.
"You must get'a ' way from the theory
advanced by Mr. Vonderbllt a great
many years ago that it is none of the
people's business how you run your
plant. It may not be any of their
justness , but they will make It their
business if you act on any such hypo
thesis. "
Service That Should be Given.
Regarding electric light service , the
speaker continued :
"You have agreed to grow and de
velop this property with the growth
and development of the city. Which
means that if you put in a plant for a
town with a population of 2,000 , and
a midnight service , that when this
town becomes a city of 6,000 or more ,
you must have a plant suitable for a
city of this sizerand probably operat
ing a twenty-four hour service.
"Again , you have agreed to give the
citizens of the city or town good regu
lation , and practically continuous ser
"No city will be satisfied and you
ought not to expect It to be with a
service which Is Intermittent In Its
"Accidents will happen , but there is
no excuse for their being frequent ;
and you have agreed , as I slated be
fore , that you will not have them hap
"Again , while' It may not be stipu
lated in your franchise , you have
agreed to give them reasonable rates ,
This question of rates is , of course ,
the most serioud one with which you
have to deal. But , to my mind , the
question of rates is almost self ad
justing. In every community condi
tions are .different , so that it is Impos
sible to say from outside what , would
be the correct fate ; but you will find
that the lowering of some of your
rates , especially to the long hour cus
toiner , will give you the greatest re
turn on your Investment , and , when
this is true , no one will discover It
sooner than you yourselves.
"It will not bo nearly so hard to
satisfy your customers with the rales
they are getting , as it is to satisfy
yourself thai you have established the
right rate , because wo all know that
a rate too high Is much more danger
ous to the owner of the plant than to
the consumers. ' The lower rate fre
quently may produce n greater net
profit than a higher one. This Is In
your contract , although you possibly
did not sc6 it.
"I think , also ( that In your dealing
with the scily for the lighting of its
streets , that you should be more than
liberal doing the city lighting at very
close to your cost.
"You should 3also thoroughly famil
iarize yourself 'with ' the best plan for
lighting the streets of the clly you are
operating In , and you should give
them the benefit' of Ihis Informallon. "
Balloon Lan'ds at Jackson , Neb.
Omaha , May'11. ' Army balloon No.
1 , which ascerided from Fort Omaha
shortly after 'll ' o'clock yesterday ,
landed at Jaclteon , Neb. , at :45 : last
evening. In nmklng the landing , the
gas bag exploded a few feet about the
ground , but neither Captain Chandler
nor Lieutenant Ware , who made the
( light , was seriously Injured.
Almost to Norfolk.
The town oil" Jaclcson is about sev
enty miles northeast of Norfolk.
Lieutenant Ware declared that ,
asldo from UIQ deslruction of the gas
\\as \ \ , the flight" , was nn entire success.
Captain Qlinn lor believes that while
at a high altitude the gas bag became
charged with Static electricity and on
reaching the- ground contact with the
earth caused an arc to form , thus
producing nn electric spark which set
lire tq the .bag ,
We'rit/'Up 4,400 Feet.
The highest altitude reached was
4,400 foot , shortly after the balloon
loft the earth. A fair breeze carried
the bag at a thirty-mile gait the first
hour , when the wind died down nnd
the balloon was becalmed for an hour
and n half. The wind then sprang up
nnd carried the big bag at n rapid
rnto to the northwest.
Running out of ballast In the vicin
ity of Jackson , Captain Chandler do-
elded to make a landing. The balloon
came down In nn open field In nn
easy manner , but just ns It reached
the earth the explosion occurred.
Explosion Destroys Balloon.
Both Captain Chandler and Lieu
tenant Ware were knocked down by
the force of the explosion , hut not
sorlously Injured Captain Chandler
said that , despite the destruction of
the balloon , much was accomplished
In nn experimental way by the flight.
The bag was a now one and had never
before boon Inflated.
Reached Fifty Miles an Hour.
The distance traveled was about 120
miles , and , deducting the hour and a
half that the balloon was becalmed ,
the flight was made In about six hours.
Much of the time , however , up to 3
o'clock the wind was so low that the
balloon moved onlyvabout five to eight
miles an hour. The maximum speed
reached was about fifty miles.
The occupants of the balloon wore
taken to town In n farmer's wagon
and are expected to reach Omaha this
Took Photographs Enroute.
The weather was Ideal , Iho temper
ature being about 70. The occupants
of the basket did not roach an alti
tude which would make It uncomfort
able' , and were able to lake numerous
photographs and measurements which ,
together with a test of the now bal
loon , formed the principal objects of
the flight.
Loss of Balloon Will Stop Work.
The bag had a capacity of 19,000
cubic feet of gas and a lifting power
of 1,300 pounds. It was built In
Franco and was of considerable value.
The destruction of this balloon will
temporarily Impede the 'work of the
signal corps at Fort Omaha , but Col
onel Glassford , the commanding offi
cer , expects a new one will be soon on
hand for experimental purposes.
This flight was the first of a series
of aerial events arranged by the Fort
Omaha signal corps .station , which has
recently been equipped with modern
appliances for ballooning and other
signal work.
