Worth Abont $5,000.
The nose , as everybody knows , is
the most prominent feature of the
face. If it 4s a thing of beauty ,
then it is a joy forever ; but
however tba.t may bewhether hand
some or ugly , no person would want
to be without a nose. It is general
ly a great convenience , although at
times a big nuisance , especially if a
fellow has got a bad attack of ca
tarrh. Then his nose is like the
Nebraska winds , always on the
Omaha is a hard place for noses.
Last summer two men got into a
fight , and one bit the other's nose
clean off. The man who did the
biting barely escaped going to the
penitentiary by some means or
Another similar case happened a
few weeks ago , but as the victim
had his nose sowed on again , and
came out all right , fcp did not pros
ecute the matter farther than hav
ing the nose-biter fined-at the Po
lice Court for fighting.
Dr. Baumer was so indiscreet as
to criticise Krug's beer , and Krufi
accordingly smashed his nose all
over his face. Baumer sued foi
Damages , and recovered § 150.
That/s / one yalup of a nose.
Now comes Mr , Adolph Minsiij
and claims that he has got a' nest
that can beat Dr. Baumer's all tc
pieces , Mr. MInski thinks his nest
is" worth about $5,000 , and hp pro ;
poses to endeavor to recover thai
amount from Maurice Dee , whc
caved it in with a fifteen-dollai
umbrella , on Sunday afternoon last ,
The idea of suing for damages ,
was not Jotig in entering the head
of'Mr. Minsk's' , wljq , immediately
upon the clobe of the mill with Dee ,
askpt } , "Is fbQt rn.qn.worth any-
- ? Upon learning time ho was

he employed Hon. Joha C. Co win
to fight thecasc.and the netitiou was
filet } yestprday morning ii'lhe office
of the clerk of the District Court.
The petition goes on to sluto , in sub
stance , that Dec broke Minski's
nose , and otherwise injured
his face and head , and
that he beat and bruised
the plaintiff about twelve or fifteen
times about the body , and in mak
ing the assault he tore and destroy
ed a suit of clothes of the plaintiff
valued at thirty dollars , and de
stroyed one uinbrplla worth , fifteen
dollars. The value of Mr. Minski's
noje , therefore , according to his es-
mateJflgured out in dollars and
cents , would be the difference be
tween the combined value of the
clothes and umbrella forty-five
dollars and five thousand dollars ,
which leaves a balance in favor of
the nose of $4,956all of which
amount the many frlendsof Mr
Minski , Mr. Cowin and the BEE In
cluded , hope that he will recover.
Mr. Cowin was attorney for the
defendant in the case of Baumer vs.
Krug , and we suggest that it would
be no more than proper under the
circumsfanpps Messrs. Savage
& Mandersonj who appparpd for
the plaintiff in the same case ,
should appear for the defendant in
this , because they are just as much
entitled to a monopoly on
nosc cases as is Mr. Cowin.

Old and ITew Grad'es on Dodge
Street Compared.
St. ' Mary's Avenue Records.
OMAHA , July 21.
The subject of street grades seems
at piesent to engross public atten
tion , and as usual in the discussion
of such subjects , misrepresentations
by interested parties are being
spread , broadcast toeffect desired
modifications. The decision of Chief
Justice Lake that the grade of any
street cannot , when changed from
plans previously adoptedbe putjntp
pflept without flrst assessing and
tendering payment of'resultintr
damages , is being „ quoted as a
barrier to the successful execution
this season of wort upon Dodgeand
gther sheets. | js alleged that the
erode upon Dodge street adopted in
1873 so modifies that of 1868 that
the city will be embarrased to pay
resulting damages to Meredith and
others , and that in consequence the
plans Adopted must" be changed.
A's' I ma e p" surveys and.d.e.sjgued.
the plans recently adopted- ! deem
it ray duty to make a proper ex
planation , and then let the public
judge whether these representations
are based upon facts. .It is well
known that a'system known as the
Creighton grades was adopted in
I860 , under its provisions Dodge
street and most all others north
ward to Webster street , were to be
cut to the extent of from twenty-
five to thirty fet. In 1868 Mr.
Meredith : ; 'with * special view to
secure a change upon IJougljs , '
Dodge and Capitol avenue grades
Was'elepted. ft'tjjp pouppij. Th.e
tihange after iwnsjderftbje eftbrt was
finally effected In 1809t Jfowlfth *
cut provi < ] ii for in , the change
thus brought about Is rin excess
of what it ought to be , Mr. Meri-
dith , and others , whg were instru
mental In Jts "adoption , ijr&the last
ones to complain"a'nd'certafniy can
clain no damages. N.OW It Is stated
fhat the grade recommended by
myself contemplates an Increase of
cutting. Let us see. The elevation
above low water-mark of the grade
as established by Meredith in 1869
on Dodge street , and that adopted
in 1873 are as follows :
Old grade centre 19th on west side
Dodge 158 fept ; new grade , ditto ,
lag/iiiaking / qufr ou'n.eXy"qne
foot less than old.
Centre block west , old grade , 170 ,
d.jtto. new grndo , 169 j , making out
on new grade only MX inches more.
Old grade west side 20th , 178 , new
grade 180 ; old grade cuning two feet
Thus it will be seen that the
records do not substantiate
the allegations in reference to Dodge
street. Now a few words in refer
ence to Sjt. Mary la ayeuuv. first of ) there never was such a
street in 1800 , when the grade Is
claimed to have been established.
There is no authenticated plat to
show it no record showing that
property was over purchased or ever
deeded for that purpose. Only a
year ago , Mr. B. E. B. Kennedy
came before the City Council with a
protest in behalf of his neighbors
against the formal opening of the
street. An injunction was after-
wqrds sought by him , of the courts ,
to'rostraiir the city"from tdkinn it ,
which Judge Lake refused , upon
grounds that the city had a right to
condemn property for public high
ways. If a street had a legal exist
ence before , then why these proceed
ings ? Again , Mrs. Crary , by Mr.
Kennedy , her attorney , has a
' '
paso now hi qourt far fjama'ges' ,
resulting from opening the avenue
through those grounds lasfc year.
Those parties are now fighting t\vo
battles , one claiming damages for
changing a grade upon a street es
tablished seven years ago , and the fop grounds taken by thP Pty }
upon the same street , which they
claim hnd no existence. Can a grade
bo regarded ns established on a
street having no existence ? But
what- record is there of any grade ?
( assuming such a street to jave le
gally existed. )
Certainly it cannot be claimed
that a piece of paper with no cirtifl-
cate. no record , an $ jn fp.tqnly
partly marked in pencil , like many
temporary plats , Is the proof of Its
being the one claimed to have been
recommended and adopted. Is it
not reasonable to suppose
that Barnard , who established
grades in I860 , from Jackson to
Webster sfrppt , sh.quW bavp lyrltteu
ful } despriptiftnH of all- these grades ,
[ jf which the City Clerk's records
xmtain an exact copy , and
then make an exception of this
ivenue. The very title by which
: his plat is recognizable at all , was
placed there by myself. I was con-
lecti-d with that office as early as
I868and strange to say pvpr sawan
ifflpja } plat of any gracfe upop th'at
treet. Th.P statement made that
