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.

" 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.

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 year. "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 vice. "No city will be satisfied and you ought not to expect It to be with a service which Is Intermittent In Its character. "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 pen. "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 morning. 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.
