The following telegram received at 3
o'clock ycstenlny afternoon explains itself :
Nonroi.K , Neb. , Feb. 4. [ Spcciul Telegram
to the Hun. ] I have just hud au interview
with Dr. Menr , who returned from Pluluvlew
this morning. Ho stated that utter a careful
examination ho became satlsllcd that it
would be necessary to amputate both of Miss
Iloyce's feet. Onu foot was almost entirely
frozen and the llcsh Is sloughing ott from the
toes , forefoot and heel , und it will Imvo
to bo amputated above the ankle
Joint , in order to give her a peed stump on
which to pluco an nrtltlciul limb. The other
foot i-i frozen and sloughing oft as fur up us
the instep , while a great piece of frozen llcsh
has sloughed oft from one side of the heel.
The doctor thinks the ankle joint afld heel of
this foot may bo saved. In addition to this
Miss Iloyeo will p.irtially lose the. use of ono
hand us her arm was fro/en just above the
wrist , and here the flesh i.s alhO sloughingotT.
lr. Hear will return on Monday to perform
the operation and will invite Den. Kelluy or
Husson of the Norfolk asylum und Dr. Alden
of Plerco to accompany him. The operation
will bo performed on Tuesday.
The doctor stated that Miss Hoyco's recital
of her experience during the terrible night is
truly a pitiful ono , two of her little charges
dying in her urmn and tins last remaining ono
pleading through the night for inoro covering
to keep her warm. Miss Uojco's is Indeed
ono of the greatest cases of heroism in mod
ern times.
MIsH Hoyuo's AftUution.
The neoplo of Nebraska will earnestly re
gret the. misfortune of Miss Louise Uoyeo.
The suffering of this joung lady , the result
of many hours exposure to the cold , havu
been givut , yet her physicians had given
her hope that all her limbs would bo spared.
The announcement that the surgeons had de
termined upon the amputation of her feet is
a sud blow to the expectations of friends and
the most sangnlno holies of the young
teacher. The sad tale of MUs Koyeo's cx-
uerienco during the storm is well known.
In uu effort to save the lives of thieo
pupils she herself was so badly
frozen that for u time her
life was despaired of. Later it was bollovcd
that no permanent injury would result from
her exposure. Now conies the sad Intelli
gence that the bravo girl must lese both
foot and an arm. The regret at this
turn of affairs will bo universal. If the per
fect sympathy of n kind and generous pco-
plo can sustain this bravo and suffering girl
she will bo nblo to pass through her hour
of trial.
The contributions to the Royce fund
have been permitted to full behind fn the
endeavor to provide for Miss Shuttuck.
The jwoplo of Nebraska are reminded that
Miss Royeo'8 additional misfortune calls for
u moro liberal contribution to the fund for
her benollt.
Many who have not contributed can rend'
lly afford a mite for this unfortunate and
deserving girl.

The offer of the Omaha Carriage und Sleigh
The New York Life's Nebraska Interests ,
The company's operations in Omaha and Nebraska are almost identical with those of a state company. By this
is meant that the NEW YORK LIFE'S invcstment'in ' Omaha alone will amount to nearly ONE MILLION OF
DOLLARS , and that it will be a long time beforb the profits on business done in this state snail amount to the unv
total that the company will have invested. In other words , money paid to this company will not only remain in
the state , biit goto enrich ahdennoble it , as well. A grand and most practical illustration of this is shown in the
above cut of the NEW YORK LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY'S building , which is now in course of construc
tion. The building will cost ground and all Ninq Hundred Thousand Dollars. It will have a basement and
sub-basement , and be ten stories in height and one hundred and thirty-two feet square. The first three stories will
be constructed of brown stone ; the other stones ofpressed brick h'nished with Terra-cotta. The extreme height
will be 1GO feet. There will be three hundred rooms , four elegant passenger elevators that will carry a man from
cellar to dome in half a minute , and electric lights and steam heating apprratus which will bo free to all. The
interior of this superb structuio will be finished in Cherry and Marble , and all glass used will be of the best grade
plate. It is expected that the building will be ready for occupancy by the first of May , 1889.
Company Is a very generous ono. Tuo Hr.K

The Secret Orders.
OMAHA , Feb. 4. To the Editor of the BEE :
When I saw in the columns of the BEE the
donations of Mt. Shasta lodge , No. 71 , and
Nebraska lodge , No. 1 , Knights of Pythias of
Omaha , to the BUB fund for the Misses Shat
tuck , Royce und Freeman , whoso well known
bravery has brought honor to themselves ,
their profession und our state , I felt proud of
membership in that order and especially
proud that my own lodge , Nebraska No. 1 ,
had boon Iho first to follow the noble exum-
plo of our sister lodge , Mt. Shasta No. 71.
While the steel panoply und deeds of war of
the knights of old do not remain with those
of modern times , I am sure that courage and
duo appreciation of deeds of bravery uud de
votion to duty In the unpretending und often
obscure wulks of private life , as well us in
public life , or oven ou the ' 'tented Held , " still
glitter on our helmets nmong the brightest
jewels Inherited from our wuriior ancestors.
Wo have now before us , In three heroic
3 oung school teachers of Nebraska , un example -
ample of rare bravery und devotion to duty
such us should rouse the heart of every man ,
especially if ho pretends to bear worthily the
proud title of knight , to prompt cncrgotio
and effective action in aiding to rescue those
young girls from the disastrous results of
their splendid und heroic devotion to duty.
Let every lodge of the order of
the Kulghts of Pythias hasten
to follow the exainplo of Mt. Shasta No. 71 ,
und Nebraska No. 1 , of Omaha.
Substantial recognition of such heroism is
not nslced of you simply in performunco of
duty , but is placed before you us u pleasure ,
the pleasure of doing good , uud I trust no
lodge will bo found thinking itself too poor
to do reverence to these examples of bravery.
No man is top iwor to hud some money for
what ho considers un object of pleasure , und
I soy to you , that while what U asked is un
deniably jour knightly duty , it is etpjully a
pleasure. I feel us though the knight whose
heart fails to leap to warmest enthusiasm ,
and whoso hand does not promptly proffer
such donation us his moans will permit In
this worthy cause , does but slender honor to
his noble title. For the Knights of Pythias
to eagerly avail themselves of this rare op-
iwrtuuity to place the numo of our order con
spicuously upon this ' 'roll of honor" would
bo alike un appropriate and graceful action.
Let each lodge send in at least f.10 or WO.
If so much is not found In the exchequer of
the lodge , let individual knights' furnish
what may bo lacking , by pot sonal donations.
If the amounts named cannot bo thus raised ,
raise what is possible , but let each ledge do
something. Donations should be sent to the
Omaha daily UKE with specific
orders Q as to whether they urn to
go to the "Shattuok special fund , " "Shat
tuck genernj fund , " "Hoyco fund" or "Free
man fund. " While no distinction can bo
made between the Misses Shattuok , Royce
or Freeman , in point of merit , because each
of noble young girls did her whole duty
nobly and bravely , yet attention U moro cs-
peclally called , and donations uro moro
largely flowing into tha Shattuck special und
the Shattuck general funds. This arises
from the fact , that while the other two PS-
cu | > od fortunately witu no permanent Injury ,
Miss Shattuck did not. In consequence of
the delay -asioned by her efforts in sue-
cvssfully looking after the safety of the little
scholars under her rare , she was loft to en
counter alone the diru penis of that frightful
storm. Partially sheltered in a hole in a hay
slock , which her rapidly falling strength
prevented her from making deep enough for
complete shelter , her feet and limb * were
loft partially exposed , and for seventy-eight
hours this frail young girl bore the full furv
of the worst storm of snow und wind thut
has ever swept the prairies of Nebraska , As
a consequence she had to submit to the am
putation of both limbs just below the knees ,
and now lies nt her homo helpless and suffer
ing. Besides being thus incupuciatcd from
earning nor own living , her gentle heart
is wrung with anxiety for the future
of her used parents , who depend upon her
labor for support. Just think of it , brother
knights , who , by your profession , ndmlro and
emulate acts of bravery and unselfish devo
tion to duty I Think 'of this young girl sev
enty-eight hours out In this frightful storm-
more than three days and nights und now
both lower limbs gone. Remember that this
did not result from the pursuit of selfish
pleasure or the effort to accomplish merely
selfish ends , but from her delay in securing
her own safety , that she might accomplish ,
as she did , the escape of the little scholars
under her care. Of the three great secret fra
ternities of the day , the Knights of Pythias
were the ttrst to step to the front , artd , under
the leadership of Mt. Shasta Ledge , No.
71 , of Omaha , speedily followed by Nebraska
Lodge , No. 1 , of the same place , they have
placed the name of our order in shining let
ters on this "roll of honor. " See to it that
the glory does not rest with these two lodges.
Let each ledge in Nebraska and each Knight
of Pythias , through his lodge , send some
thing , bo it moro or leas. Hemombcr , brother
knights , it Is not the amount , but the giving.
which justifies your right to bear the proud
title of knight , and uct now , that future
regret may not tinge your checks with the
blush of un Ignoble shame. Look well
to your laurels , brother knights , for
you do not wear them undisputed.
The magnanimous order of the Knights
Templar huvo entered the field , led by Jordan
Commandory , No. 15 , of Blair , with a liberal
gift , and the valiant Knights of the Temple'
never do things by halves. Nay , more , I
hear the tramp of the van guard of another
mighty host approaching the Held of noble
und generous contention , for the muster Ma
sons of the Blue lodge , urousod by the "con
tagion thut is in the uir , " havu entered the
urenu under the leadership of St. John's
Ledge , No. 2.1. of Omaha , taking u $ .10 shnro
in the ? fi,000 Shattuck special fund , besides
liberal donations to the Misses Koyco and
Freeman. The Independent Order of Odd
Fellows will not bo left behind In this "battlo
of the gods ; " they , too , will soon bo "In the
thickest of the light , " striving no less en
thusiastically than the rest to do good and
generous deeds. A noble und generous strug
gle is before you , brother knights , for you
moot foemen "worthy of your steel. " Brace
on your bright armor of friendship , which
protects friend from foe , lot your bare weap
ons glitter in the sunshine of generous char
ity und sympathetic benevolence , fling your
bright bunnors to the bieezes of u manly yet
friendly emulation ns to which order shall do
the * most In a noble cause , and show the world
that the Knfehts of Pythias can never bo loft
In the rear when1 the fallen and suffering are
to bo raised uiuUcomforted , und thut secret
societies do , fur , more than pass evenings in
their ledge rpoma practicing mysterious rites.

SIIEXA.NDO.UI , jla. , Feb. 2. To the Editor
of the BEG : , I urn glad to know that there is
at least a probability of Miss Louise Koyco

The Great Ulizznrd Proves KxoiiNe * for

Now York Commerclal-Advertisor :
The great bll/.x.ard in the weal IIIIH put
to the severest tcbt the system of heat
ing railway trains by stenm drawn from
the locomotive. The Wagner vestibule
trains from Now York to Chicago , by
wav of the Now York Contriil and the
Lake Shore roads , wore providotl with
the btuam heating apparatus at the be
ginning of the si.'iisou und found it en
tirely satisfactory during the compara
tively mild weather. Its coiujileto BUG-
ccbH , however , was not iwcortainud until
the recent very cold weather , when it
wan found thut every requirement was
fully met. The cars have been moro
perfectly and uniformly heated than before
fore , and at a very great reduction of ex
pense , while a purer atmosphere can at
all ti men bo maintained The Ions of
power by the locomotive in furnishing
the necessary steam , oven for a lout ;
train , has boon found almost impercept
The Pullman vef\lbulo \ train over the
Pennsylvania road , which is alsohoatod
by the same system as the Wagner com
pany have udoiitcd , recently inudo a
trip with the thermometer registered
below /cro , and was able to Keep an
equitable temperature of 70 ° in thb
cars with thu ventilators all ouen. But
the most remarkable instance of the
complete success of steam hunting oc
curred tiiis week on the Chicago fs
Northwestern railroad , which was run
ning an excursion train over its linos.
The excursionists wore composed of oltl-
ce iy of the road , practical railroad men
from other roads and invited guests.
During the journey neross the prairie
the train was caught in thu terrible
bll//ard that swept o\cr Die west and
the thermometer went down to 10 ° be
low /.oro. lint the train was bound to
bo ns warm and comfortable as the moot
porfm-tly-conslrueted house , and all the
passengers were delighted with tha
all-am heating innovation.
After all these tests it will bo hard t
find un excuse for the deadly itovo.
