n the couth stood an array of shelves
m which were disposed a variety of hous * .
lold utensils which had never done duty
save In n hardware or furnishing store. The
rirls were met by the teacher , Miss Clara
tlnnn , who spoke to them nlwut the object of
he class , what It was exacted to nccotn *
ilish and what would bo expected of
hem while attending it. These
ciunrks were of an Informal order , and
after they hud been delivered the class was
llsmlsscd till to-morrow morning.
Shortly after n Bui : reporter called upon
Miss Mann and found her pleased to speak
ibout the new addition to tlio curriculum of
the school. There are to bo three classes ,
jach consisting of twenty members.
They will bo drawn from the high
schoolthc eighth gradoand the post graduate
class. Each class will spend about an hour
and a half at the work ,
commencing 10:150 : o'clock in the
morning , and continuing until 4 o'clock in the
ifternoon. Miss Mann seems to fell the ab
sence of tables and other articles Intended
For use , which would give the room
something of the appearance of a culinary
apartment. Their absence was owing to the
: tmllness of the carpenters. The tables or
jonches are to run lengthwise with the room
md supplied with drawers. In the
after the young bread-makers will
teep their utensils , which comprise
in assortment of rolliiiL'-pins , potato-mash
ers , sieves , grates , egg-boaters , ladles , cups ,
spoons , knives , tea pots , and a host of other
vrticlos , as a rule , more useful than orna
mental. The table will bo divided into see-
.ions , each girl having a section for Herself ,
i'liis will bo furnished with gas
which may bo used by thu incipient work for
1 number of purposes. One set of utensils
will bo used by two girls , each of whom will
DC obliged to keep them in good condition and
> lace them away in safety in the drawers and
closets provided for them under the bench or
Miss Mann says that her bobby is plain
'ooking ' and her neophytes will make their
first attempt in the brunch to-morrow. She
did not know exactly how she would dispose
} f t\io \ * material which would come from

liako in very large quantities. Miss Mann
seems to bo n lady capable of satisfactorily
licrforming the duties of her otllce , and will
doubtless find favor with her scholars. Shu

Eugene S. Hay inond , a Traveling Sales
man , IJOSCH nil Eye. C3
Eugcno S. Raymond , a traveling salesman
for a prominent Now-York clothing house ,
met with a peculiar and serious accident yes
terday , and will lose 'his left eye. A party
of traveling men were comluir over on the
dummy train from Council Bluffs and four
of them occupied scuts faring ono another.
One of them , a man named Roberts , had a
queer looking cnno and a companion named
Knowles picked it up to examine it. There
was u brass knob on the side just below the
head. Mr. Knowles was holding the cane so
that the end of It was within n few Inches of
Mr. Raymond's face. Knowles pressed the
brass knob nnd n sword shot out from the
other end , striking Mr. Raymond In the .left
eye. The wounded man fainted away and
had not recovered consciousness when Omaha
was reached. He was carried into a hotel
near the depot and medical aid was sum
moned. It was stated by ono of Mr. Ray
mond's ' companions that ho would certainly
lose the eye.

captains of each company are to constitute a
board of trustees. The constitution and by
laws were immediately drafted anil adopted ,
and the style of the new organization will bo
known as the "Omaha Paid Firemen's Hencv-
olent association. " It starts out with n mem
bership of lifty-thrco , and the dues have been
fixed at fifty cents a quarter. It is a merito
rious move on the part of the firemen as it in
sures aid to their families in case of Injury or
death , which they could not obtain from any
Is worth a column of rhetoric , said an
American statesman. It is a fact , cs-

state or low condition of the
blood. It also overcomes that tired feel

strength to every part of the system5
The man Erlckson who died last Friday
night at St. Joseph's hospital , was an em
