CHUISTiMAS 13VI3ON THIS STUEIiTS
What n Iloportcr Hn\v I" the Course
of a Nocturnal Humble.
"Homo , Swtot Homo. "
Softly the strains were played , nnd they
almost lost themselves while struggling
through the thick tobacco sinolco that
liemmcd thorn in on their way to the half
open door of the saloon.
"Les have another , " said ono of the listen
ers , us the music ceased , and ho braced him
self up against the bar , but there was a look
In his oycs that told ho once had n homo nnd
"Givo us Aunio Laurie , Au'.d Lang Syne ,
or something like that , " said a man that
looked as though ho know every foot of the
land in which the airs nro familiar , nnd then
ho slipped a quarter into the hands of the
player , whoso homo was evidently on the
shores of sunny Italy. Before his request
was granted Tun BEI : reporter slipped away
and remembered it was Christmas evo.
It was the reporter's night watch , and as
110 struck out into the darkness , the words of
"Homo , Sweet Homo" still rang In his ears.
[ t seemed to him that every ono ho mot must
: mvo had a homo sometime , and yet they
seemed far away from it , on the busy streets
of Omaha ,
At the Tenth nnd Farnam street patrol
jox. u drunken man tried to balance himself ,
o the tunes of "Dixie" and "Chippy Got
Your llalr Cut , " us they floated across the
street toward him , but ho stumbled nnd fell
nto the waeon , that took him to the station ,
and us it rolled over the pavement it seemed
.0 keep time , in a far oil way , to the air of
'Home , Sweet Homo. "
Further up the street were those who
vero trying to keep Christinas the way it
vns kept when they were young , nut the
clear , balmy air of Nebraska seems to have
dllcd poor old Santa Clause. Whore ono
citizen bought a gift to go down the stock-
ug of an expectant child , there were dozens
who were buying something useful , if not
And yet there were some vho had not for
gotten the days of the olden time.
"Give mo a doll of some kind no , not like
hat blue eyes golden Lair all that sort of
hing , you know , " said ono purchaser in a
Sixteenth st , storo. "Yes. that will do ; nnd
say , put in some kind of trimmings any-
.hing you have left from tlio dress-mnk-
ng or millinery department. I'll pay for
them. Its to Help a sick little girl to pass
away the time , and I guess its the first doll
she over had , " ho continued , aud the lady
clerk left her counter to sec that one sick
ittle girl was maUo happy.
"I don't give a darn for no darn man
That don't ' give n darn for mo. "
She had a sweet voice ouce , but it was
cracked and strained as she sang the words.
She was young , she was bluo-oyed , she had
jolden hair , and she seemed out of place bo-
ilnd the bars at the police station. But she
vns there , and would roll and toss on the
mrd wooden bench until daylight , when she
vould sober up. It was a different Christ-
nas Eve to the ono she spent a year a o ,
and who wis : to blame ? The chances
are that sometime or another ho will spend
a much harder Christinas eve than the girl (
that lost night sang , "Ho don't give a duru a
for me. "
And the Christmas eve in the burnt dis
trict. Only those who were there know
who it was. No soft music was played to it
remind the strnmrer that it was Christmas
eve , or that ho had a home , mother or sis
ters. Only that which would make him for
get everything but the present was offered ,
und as one after another rolled from the
quickly opened doors it could bo seen that
there efforts were crowned wild success.
Then the victims rondo the night hideous
with their shouts , or slunk away on the dark
sldo of the street ! ! to their lodging houses.

A County Commissioner Talkq About ,
nu As'H-s'ior , and Oilier Sullied * .
ComniNslonor O'KcclTc ' , speaking upon
needed legislation In the City aud county ,
said : "There nro lots of laws which wnnt
.remedying , but if the legislature would devote -
vote some tlmo to repealing Inws histoml of
making them , the poonlo might possibly bo
bettor off , Tha laws 1 know most about are
tlioso-affceUng county government. Having
boon county commissioner for sis years I
sco where the laws might bo improved. For
example , wo want n county auditor. Ono
who would bo competent and rcsiionslblo.
Ho should rccolvo a good salary nnd bo
placed under satisfactory bonds. Ho should
bo elected by the people , nnd not a creature
of the board of commissioners , for the rea
son thnt , whatever party comprises the ma
jority of the board , appoints an auditor out
of its own ranks. Why is an
auditor necessary ? Because the
county hns become so largo nnd the business
so great that it ii nn utter impossibility for
the commissioners oven If they were al
ways competent to llnd tlmo to midlt the ac
counts of ouch ofllcor. The county has three
times as many responsible ollleors ns the
city , yet wo have no auditor. This should
bo remedied , nnd provisions uiado for the
cluctlou of nn auditor at the next county elec
Yes , sir , there are other suggestions I
might make , but they have all been gone
over before moro or less. Wo should have
ono county assessor. A competent man paid
n good salary and giving a good bond. Ho
should bo elected , und should appoint hlsoxvn
help , subject to the approval of the board.
Ho should nmko the tax-list because ho would
bo In n position to know moro about the nature
and location of property than anybody else.
It Is my opinion that something should bo
done to improve the state of thiiiua nt our
elections. Tins I mean in relation to judges
and clerks. As the case now stands , nobody
has the power to nmko a Judge or clerk servo
on election day. The result Is thnt persons
are appointed by thu commissioners nnd nt
the last moment refuse to serve , often , I'm
afraid , for political reasons. There must be
someone put in their places ; so that it hap
pens j ' that only such men ns always hnng
around such places are taken to act in this
This stnlo of things might and should bo
remedied. The judges have power to make
n Juror servo , why not give them a similar
power over clerks anil Judges of election }
At present no peimlity can bo enforced on a
man If ho does not servo.
Then there is the state board ot equaliza
tion. The present system should bo ohuneod.
The board should bo enlarged. Populous
counties should have larger representation
on the board. A good plan would bo to give
each Judicial district In the state n repre
sentation on the board corresponding to the
number of district judges In the district.
1 am also of opinion that Uotiglns county
should have a superintendent of construc
tion. He should examine work done by nil
contractors and loolc over supervisors. It
should bo necessary that ho "O K" nil con
struction bills Kgnlnst the county , und at
tend to the building and constructing gen
erally. Why don't ' the county
commissioner attend to this I you
ask. Because they neglect It , und
men might bo elected for county com
missioner who are not competent to Judge of
construction men who hardly know a bridge
from a sidewalk. Besides , there is plenty of
work on which the commissioners may keep
fully i employed.
What do I know about the city hall re
moval ! T know thnt there ought to bo no
city hall removal. The city hall should bo
Built on Fnrnum street , whore It was in-
: ended to bo built originally , and where the
icoplo voted it should bo built. It U nil nou-
s lenso to be voting ami voting ou the same
.hiiig over and over again. The proposition ,
as I understand it , was put to the people and
, ho.v decided for Fnrnnm street.
That ought to settle it. You might as well
ask for another general election next year ,
because General Harrison's ' election does not
pie wo some of us. "
The commissioner made this last remark
with a smile und looked at the writer's hat.
In most of the largo cities the city and
county ofllccs uro under one roof. As wo
cannot got that here , wo ought to have
hoin as cloBO as possible together. The
county and city oflloers are frequently
obliged to consult each other , and it might
lot bo convenient to have our county treas
urer and city treasurer all the time running
roni ono ofllco to the other. Farnam street

weapons enough already to injure papacy ,
und If those did npt suffice they were pre
pared to manufacture fresh weapons. It was
persistently asserted that the pope was an
enemy of Italy. This assertion was simply
mndo to mask the real object of the perfidious
war against , the churah , and that object waste
to render Italians hos'tilo to papacy. To vin
dicate the rights of the Pontiff was in realty
to advance the prosperity of Italy. To do-
nmnd that the greatest moral power In the
world should possasp leal sovereignty iu
Italy , where providence placed the church
centuries ngo , wus not -an act of hostility to

Washington Correspondence of Phil

century of self-exile in Now York , ox-
Surgeon-General W. A. Hammond lias
comeback to live , and the handsomest
tuain on the asphaltum of Washington
is the noble span of grays behind which
ho 1 and Mrs. Hammond take their daily
niring. His rc-cntroo lias really some
thing' of a triumph in it.
Some lour years ago I was in his
sumptuous homo in New York , and I
asked him what ho was thinking' about
most just at that time.
"Of getting back to Washington , " ho
"Surely , " I said , "you will not return
there to live' : " '
"Yes , I will , " he said with earnest
ness. ' ' 1 loft the army and Washing
ton because I was tlio victim of gross
injustice. Both congress and the pres
ident have since correctoa the wrong
done me , and I mean to go b.ick there
and finibh my days in the loviest city in
the world. I shall go back there and
have my housevarming on Oct. " (5 ( ,
"On that wrticnlnr and precise
date ? " I asked.
"yes ; that will bo the twenty-fifth
anniversary of my leaving. When I
stood in the Baltimore & Ohio depot ou
October 12(5 ( , 18G4 , I said to myself : "I
will go to New Yorkjind do some peed
work and make some money , and in a
uartor of a century I will come back ,
t is a fad of mine to keep promises that
I make to myself. ' "
Mr& . Hammond is a tall and finely
formed young woman , of a typo that
may properly be described as "stately. "
She was a Providence belle and heiress

great little state. Hammond now occu

Prominent medical man here nro much in
terested In the rotnnrKablo surgical case of
Helen Winthrop , says n New York dispatch
to the Cincinnati Enquirer. She is n patient ,
at the picscnt time , In the Lexington nvonuo
private hospital. Miss \Vintl \ rep belongs
to an old New England family She It
wealthy. Her plnro in the social world is In
tlio upper strata of society , where only the
blue blood of aristocratic Boncon street has
IKMltlon , nnd where money Is lighter Until
birth and breeding. Miss Wiutlirop has been
debarred , however , from mingling In this
social sphere bncnuso of a most peculiar
physical deformity. Miss Winthrop was barn
with scucn tongues. One of thiMii was Iu tha
normal position , with three smaller ones
nttached to each side.
If Miss Winthrop simply had seven tongues
she might have got along nil right und man
aged them with decanting modostj. Uut
there were other serious complications. The
tongues filled the entire mouth , nnd wore
hard and practically iminovaule. There was
a total absence of muscular contraction In nil
the tissues in the neighborhood of the tongue ,
nnd she was nnnhlo to swallow. She nearly
died from starvation before the abnormal
connltion wns discovered.
It wns a ( lilllciilt case to handle , at the posl
tion of the tongue In the month prevented the
introduction of n tube through it , nnd It was
only nfter repealed trials tlrtt a rubber tube
was passed through the nose into the oso-
plmirus. The tube nctod upnn the Hlplion
principle , nnd the food wus measured and
given through It at regular Intervals Only
milk was usud nt llrst , mid as n bubo who
thrived upon it and gained flush and strength
After every meal the tube was removed and
wiished. Miss Winthroi ) grow up be.intlful
in face and figure , uuii she is now eighteen
During these years she has been fed en
tlrely through n tube
Having an abundance of wealth , she has ,
of coin-so , had every comfort , and has not
been compelled to intrude her deformity ex
cept where it suited her. Her food has boon
s | > ecially prepared by n well known chemist ,
nml consists principally of inp.it und vegetable
table powders , n cd oil her in milk or water.
A number of surgeons nt dilTen-nt periods
have examined her tcnguo , with il view of
correcting the dllllculties by surgical inter
ference , but none of them soumed willing vc
undertake the task , and the probability is
that she would have lived to the und of her
( lavs without nut from the surgeons if thuro
had not been n change in her condition.
About n year ngo the tongue increased in
size without nny known cause so that the
und of it nrotruded from her mouth.
There wus n similar development at the
base , and the result was that tlio tube was
intcrfcrred with in the road to the stomach ,
nnd it not Infrequently happened that the
end of il got Into the trachea , oven without
Miss Wmtlirop's knowledge and a portion of
the f'oon got into tlio lungs , setting un a terrible
riblo coughing and inllaminution. The
throat also became so sensitive that It would
not tolerate the tube , and when it was
passed In nnuscn and vomiting followed.
Bromides and local applications hud no
cft'ect in reducing the membranous irritabil
ity and she was brought to this city to the
Dr. Selnow took charge of the patient aud
decided to try to give relief by an operation.
After the patient was uun-sthotizod an in
cision was made in the neck several inches
long , along the inner line of Uio storno
niistoid muscle on thoriifht s 'do. The tissue
WHS carefully divided aud the carotid artery
wus hold out of the way by a hook. It was
considerably out of position , us was also the
thy t old artery.
The latter nrtery was punctured while the
surgeon was hunting for it , nnd the patient
had a close call from death while on the
The recurrent nerve was also lacerated lie-
cldoutnlly , it being out of placo. After the
artery had been tied , the incision was ex
tended to the uisonhagus.
The surgeon was surprised to find that
there were seven distinct passages to the
stomach , which united iu one canal below
fho level of the collar bone.
Ho selected the largest oesophagus aud
mndo un opening into it about three-quarteiH
of in ; Inch long. The blood was carefully
washed away and an ivory curved tube was
put into the ( usophtiirus. 'fho wound wns
closed mound it , und the patient's neck
bandaged. The cud of the ivory tube pro
jected from the neck about two inebo-s. The
patient came out of the ether in good s !
and solid food was forced through the tube
with : i probang , consisting of an ivory ball
attached to a strip of whalebone.
The patient" pulled through after a hanl
struggle , making the first Instance in which
ci'sophagotoniy wusjsuccessfully performed.
The patients have invariably died soon nfter
thin oper.Uion , und in this casn death would
certainly hare resulted except for nuUscp-
tics.Tho Ivory tube was kept in place nil the
time , except when taken out to wash it , and
the patient wan fed both solid and liquid food
through it without any trouble. After the
patient fully recovered she was operated
This time the mouth was attacked ,
aud the six extra tongues and it con
Bidcrable scclion of the mam tongue
were removed. The small tongucti
were ubout an Inch and u half long
itmi perfectly developed. Only one of them
hod a passage to the ( vsophnguii. This was
the last ton ; ( iiu on the left nidi * . A frightful
huuion hngu w.is set up , and il was only
stopped by burning it with u red hot cautery
The shane of the main tongue wns nro-
.ei'Vi'd , und by cutting thu muscular attach
ment on the miilur nldu of it consiilerubln
motion was jicriiilttcd in every way The
wound was very slow lio-iling , a.ud the hfu of
.lio patient hung in the balance for several
ivoekn. She is how entirely out of danger
