The Oiled Street.
Wayne Herald : The policy of oiling
streets and roads to lay dust and tin-
provo them for travel is being consid
ered favorably by several towns In
this part of the state. West Point ha ?
decided to experiment with the useof
oil on its streets and on roads leading
to the town. Norfolk proposes to do
some oiling of the streets , and Hart-
Ingtou Is considering a similar move.
It is said oiled streets are equal to
streets paved with asphalt and that
the expense is only half what street
sprinkling costs for one year. An
Omaha representative of the Stan
dard Oil company addressed the busi
ness men of Ilartington on the sub-
jeut recently , explaining that the cost
v'f such oiling , including an attachment
lor the city's street sprinkler , would
be $8.fiO for a twenty-live-foot lot. It
is not kerosene PI crude oil , but is
known as asphaltum oil , which , when
set , will withstand all kinds of travel.

A Hospit.il is Possible-
Norfolk. Nob. . May 2. Editor
News : I hnro noted with Interest the
editorials nnd items which have'ap
peared in The News from time to time
concerning the need of a hospital in
NorfohY. That such a need exists la
quite apparent to e eryone who hast
given the sllgriJf-nt thought to the sub
Howev'r , the hospital question is a
many-sld.d one It is recognized by
all who Aavp looked into it that ? the
acquiring of a snitable building I not
by any means tne most difficult part
of the undertaking. It should not' bean
an especially hard task to secure a
site and erect a building. That nan
be done at an ontjide cost of about1
510r. 00 for i thoroughly modern , lire-
proof structure of a .size adequate to *
care for the demands of Norfolk and
its ( "witribntlng territory. It is sim
ply a question of raisin ? the money
and , considering Norfolk' : ) ability In-
the liiae of pablic spirited enterprise ,
there should really be no question
about it when the crying need for such
an Institution is properly put before-
Problem is Maintenance.
But Hie reaf difficulty lies in the
problems of maintenance and direc
tion after the hospital ha ? been erect
ed. Private hospitals- , that is , those-
owned or dlwted oy individuals ,
whether physicians or others , require
for their success peculiar conditions
which aie , to say the least , very ex
ceptional and do not e.ust here. LackIng -
Ing these excepSfonal conditions , the
public hospital is the only one which
as any prospect of continued success.
The public hospital owned or directed
T the ciiy or county has many disad-
antages which are apparent. Tlio
are of the sick is something which
honld be kept oat of politics. On the
> ther band , the care of the sick Is pc-
uliarly within the province of ro-
igion , anil that is why hospitals which
re owned or directed by churches are
he most successful under ordinary
onditious. The Episcopal church , in
o mm on with most other religious
todies , maintains hospitals in many
ilaces. St. Luke's hospital , Chicago ,
find Clarkson Memorial hospital , Orna-
ia , are two which are doubtless well'
< nown to most of your readers. A
ospital along lines similar to thcso ,
hough of course of less size , can be
mil in Norfolk if it is wanted hero.
If the comparatively small amount
cquired to erect a building can be .
subscribed and a suitable site secured1 , j i
in' association could be formed and
regularly incorporated , to consist ot' '
be bishop of the diocese of Nebraska ,
he chancellor of the diocese , the
clergyman in charge of Trinity church ,
Norfolk , and two other Norfolk peo-1
) le who need not necessarily be mem-
> ers of the Episcopal church. This as
sociation would erect a two-story and
lasement hospital building , about 40
by CO feet , containing twenty beds for
patients , elevator , toilets , nurses' and
convalescents' dining room , offices , op
erating and private rooms , etc. , as
nearly fireproof as possible , and pro
vide it with the most modern equip
ment made. The association will take
title to the property and assume Us
general oversight , as well as Its future
For No Other Purpose.
It will be specified that the building I
is to be used as a church hospital and
for no other purpose , and that any
profits accruing from its operation
shall be used for the hospital and that
none of them shall be diverted to any
other use. The active management of
the institution would be given to a
thoroughly well trained , experienced
graduate nurse , employed by and re
sponsible to the association. This
nurse would be given the title of ma
tron or superintendent and would have
such assistance as might be necessary.
No physician would be employed by
the hospital in any capacity , and all
physicians would be on the same
standing there. The hospital would
be open to all physicians to bring pa
tients there and they might send spe
cial nurses with their cases if they
desired. All physicians of Norfolk
would be asked to join the hospital
staff and to serve , in turn , as house
Charges Would Be Low ,
Under this plan charges would be
made as low as operating expenses
would permit. It is necessary that
there bo some profit in order to pro
vide a reserve fund for such times as
the Income is not sufficient to meet
expenses. Any profit nbovo this re-
y' serve would be used to pay the ex-
pnruten of worthy Indigent patlontn.
Tl/ns / Idea would not be to make money
but lo provide hospital accommoda
( Ions tot all at the lowest poatilhlu
cost anrf without an co t to these
who are unable to pay.
This would be a public hospital , not
a private one. While It would bo tin
der the care of the Kplscop.tl church
and all responsibility for its mnlnten
anco would be assumed by that
church , HH policy would not In any
SOIIHO bo narrow or ecctarian. ICa aim
would be philanthropic , not money
making. Its management would he In
safe and experienced hands , similar
to that of Clarkson Memorial hospital ,
Omaha , which has been owned ami
maintained by the Kplscopal church
for years along the same plan. ItH
future would bo assured
It's Up to Norfolk.
It Is not my Intention to try to
raise the money to build this hospital.
That part of It Is up to the citizens of
Norfolk , If they want the hospital I
would , however , i ui ; est that the Com
morclal club would SIMMM to bo the
proper agenc > through which this plan
might be developed and I would bi >
very glad to mpf with thorn or their
directors , at thrlr convenience , nnd
explain the plan more in detail or give
them ( lie honoflt of the Investigations
I have made along this line. In any
event , whether this plan or some other
bo adopted , Norfolk nceiU a hospital
and needs It now.
Sincerely yours ,

the proposition shonld be accepted , if

building could be raised.

NwrtolV I\Vb. . April 27. 1911. Mr
IT. C Slatran , Kec'y. Board of Bdtica-
tion , Cfry.- Dear Mr. Matrau : Permit ,
mo herewith to tender to the board of
education my resignation from the su
periiitendency of the Norfolk schools.
My resignation is thus offered in order
dor that r rnaj accept the principal
ship or" tr > e I'niwrslty School'of ' Agri
cultun at Lincoln , to which position 1
was rifrentfy elected by the ooard' or
Anticipating the acceptance of my
resignation , let me say that it is with
much regret that I sever my connec
tion with the members of the board ot
uduuatiori , the Norfolk school system ,
and the people of Norfolk. The three
years just closing have been the most I
pleasant nd satisfactory of my life
as a superintendent of schools , and
the breaking of these ties is-a-matter
of rea ? pain to rue.
For -whatever may have been ac
complished during the past three
yearsr want to thank first the mem
bers of the board , because at all times ,
they have been most staunchly loyal
to > ttio school organization and its best
interests , and because , too. of the at
tftnrte of good will aud support thar
! bnvtat all times been so manifest
toward the corps of teachers antf my
self. I feel , too. a deep obligation to
the patrons of our schools. The rela
tionship between the schools and the
great body of school patrons has at all
times been most cordial and pleasant ,
and it lias been only through the loyal
support and co-operation of the great
body of the school constituency that
anything may have been accomplished
for the tuture of Norfolk.
In parting from you and the Norfolk
schools and their patrons , let me wish
for you all and for Norfolk's young
people the very best future that may
come to anj one. and let me prophesy
that with the same staunch public
sentiment for the best and highest
ideals for the schools which has been
their support during my administra
tion. and with the same broad minded
spirit of conservative progressiveness
which has always characterized your
own policies , with these guarantees of
' the future of Norfolk's children , they
I will some day build a Norfolk greater
and better even than the Norfolk of
today could possibly picture.
Most sincerely and cordially yours.
Fred M. Hunter.
