At iho time of the birth of my phtlu Mrs.

nt the time. There was n nurse girl thero.
but she wns not qualified for thu place at
Jhnt time , The first nntno of the nurse Rirl

She seemed to bo working for Mrs. Mahonoy.
1 never saw her attending to the sick ladles ,
except to bring their meals three times a
( lay during the ween and twlco on Sunday.
The nurse girl never oamo near mo during
tlio day , all Uaj. I was conilnod to my bed
twelve days , and during that tlino the nurse
did not come in the room ntall. ' A girl that
was waiting there to bo slslc attended to my
child. The child was attended to all right
by one of the inmates. I had clothing for it
myself , so I qldn't need any cloth
ing for it I was at tlio poorhouse -
house a month before I was confined.
During that time I was washing In the
wash house most of the time washing and
Ironing clothes. Mrs. Mahouoy sot mo. to
tvork there. Slio told mo to go down and
> vash with the rest , and on ono occasion she
pot so cross she told mo if I didn't work I
couldn't stay there , and I went to work.
This"was before my confinement , I worked
up to the tlmo I took sick , before I was con
ilnod. I was in the sowing room at the tlmo
I ook sick , soxyiqg for the inmates , I sup *
IIDSO ; ami on that day there was no one-or
no ono did scrub the back room , and Mr.

There was several times our meals were not
brought on tlmo. Sometimes it was 0 o'clock
when the girls came up , and sometimes 8
o'clock in the afternoon , and sometimes it
was 8 o'clock before supper. Of course ,
it was not always so. On ono occasion she
brought up some cold milk , a piece of dry
bread and some cold rlco. I says : "Plcnso
may I have a piece of broad ! " and she says ,
"Of course , I guess so , " and J got U. I do
not know whoso fault it was , ; that is hot for

Q. What kind of food was furnished to
the inmates )
A. The food was very poor. Very often

fault It was. I cnnnot say how many times

per tboro was nothing but dry broad , mo
lasses , sour upples or prunes , or according to
ivlmt wus fn season , or something of that
description. I did not ( rot sufficient food. I

that the clothes were mended and brought
into the laundry : I never had to run after

vermin on her heud , and she hud no comb

Ollvo Olson testified : I have visited tbo
poor farm three or four times to pee Chris
tine Molgert , a nurse glrj out tbcro , who wns
a friend of mine. I was there In tbo lying-
in room ono cold day last February in the
afternoon , when an inmate came In with a
baby and throw It on a bed not it's mother's.
Tbo nurse , who is a good ono , was In two or
thrco times but did not have tltno to look
after the baby , as she bad some sick women
to take care of. The room wns very cold and
occupied by two sick women bos id us the cry
ing baby , whom I picked from the bed. The
child had nothing on but a calico slip nnd
flannel skirt and Its mother called out from
ono of tbo beds that nv the foot of another
ono was a tlaunol skirt. This I secured and
wrapped around the baby and succeeded In
warming the little thing up. I was in this
room about half an hour. I did not go out there
for the purpose of investigating the manner
of conducting the hospital , andI am and
was n domestic in the house of Mrs. James ,
I told that lady what I had seen at the poor
farm on this occasion , after returning homo.
I don't remember seeing Mrs. Mahoney on
this visit to the poor farm that I have boon
speaking of.
* Covered WltU Vormiii.
Llowcllyu ll A. Hughes tea tilled : I have
been living In the soldiers' homo at Grand
Island. I was in the county poor liouso here
iv little over a year before Mr. t'Jorco wont
away , and during the tlmo that Mr. and Mrs.
Mnhoney WAS there up to the latter end of
August , 1833 , when Mr. Mahoney secured
transportation for mo and I wont to the homo
at Grand Island. I remember the old woman
Margaret that dlodjdou't remember the date
of her death.but before it occurred thu nurse
asked mo to cut tier hair , I did so , and
found it full of llco that were also crawling
on her clothes nnd nronnd the bed. Other
Inmates In the nick-room notlcod were In the
( tame condition. The crarios were nlio
nflllctcd in the same way , but the rooms nnd
beds were kept a * clean as could bo under
the circumstances , with the llco around them
pretty thick nnd they nt one time KOI pretty
thick down among the crnzlos.
As to the character of the food , sometimes
it wns pretty fair aud wholesome ; at ether
times It waa pretty rough , and seemed to bo
utrotiK enough to help Itself ; never saw nny
rotten meat , As to how often It occurred
that tlm food was not good I could not sivy ,
for I did not keep particular track of it ,
Sometimes the clothing was pretty slim.
The giving out of the clothes depended upon
the Inraatcs-inpst generally. I have soon
some women working n short tlmo before
child birth In the laundry , don't know par
ticularly where the roit wcro : could not say
who put them to work ; don't know of nny of
the inmates Ill-treating others In the pros-
en co of Mr , nnd Mrs , Mnhonoy , but iinvo
scon some of them 111 Ircatod there , I hit
ono old man with a pot nnd wiw lectured for
It by Mr. Mnhnnqy. That Was shortly before
I loft for the soldiers' homo nt Qrand Island.
iVIien Mr. Pierce was there I asked him to
glvo mo n pair of shears to clip the hair of
ilia dirty Inmates nnd when Mr. Mahoney
took hold I requested him to furnish mo with
clipper ! . I was prompted to this by a dcslro
to have something to do.
Couldn't KrU the Mcnt.
Wendell P. Cole stated that ho wns nn in
mate of the county poor house for eight or
ton days. Ho said : "I saw n woman near
pregnancy scrubbing the stairs loading from
the back porch to the second story und I
heard Mrs. Mahoney speak to this woman
wlillo nt work , requesting her to scrub under
the stairs which was celled , I remember n
woman that was working In the laundry , but
I would not have known she was pregnant
had I not been so informed , and I under
stood that she was otherwise sick at the
timo. I hoard Mrs. Mahoney make some re
mark to her nt ono tlmo In regard to the
amount of work she was doing. Mrs. Mahoney
noy accused her of being lazy nnd the woman
returned that she was willing to work when
she wus able to stand up.
I remember the teasing of n crazy man a
pnrnlvtle or something of that Id ml. Person
ally I did not BCD nny of the children bother
him. I have heard the paralytic nt different
times while I was away from the yard use
profane language when ho was being teased
or provoked.
For the first three da.ys I was there 1 could
not cat any of the meat that was placed on
the table. The smell of it wns enough. As
to the condition of the rooms in the ward in
which I was placed , it was fair , the lloor was
clean , as was the bqd , but the bed was In
habited by bedbugs.
I romcmbor on ono occasion Mr. Mahoney
jerked the hat off this paralytic. The old
man did not seem to relish It and Indulged
in strong language ; but the hat was returned
to Its owner by Mr. Mahonoy.
Mrs. Gallagher was the first'witness called
lu the afternoon , blio had been hired as
nurse , but had done the work of domestic ;
had scon sick patients neglected ; had soon a
dying man dragged from a wagon like a hog.
Women about to bo coufiuud wcro over
worked aud obliged to do heavy lifting.
Christina Mclgot had worked ut the poor
farm four weeks , beginning February 2 , was
hired to attend to the sick , but did not have
tlmo to do so. Hud heard Mrs. Mahoney
abuse the sick , calling them "darn nasty
things. " Had seen pregnant women over
The last witness * of the afternoon was n
young doctor whoso testimony- had little
bearing on the matter , as ho had loft the poor
house shortly after the incoming of tbo Ma-

, Report That Ho Will Go to the
91. P. ns Vloo President.
A report is in circulation , which is based
on good authority , to tbo effect that Thomas
L. Kimball , general manager of the Union
Pacific , is to sever his connection with that
road to succeed W. H. Newman as third vice
president of the Missouri Paolfio. The re
port also is to the effect that , In case Mr.
Kimball concludes to change , the title of
ccond vice president will be conferred upon
him. In the event of this change , It Is said
C. S. Mellon , now general tratUo manager ,
will succeed Mr. Kimball as general man
ager of the Union Paclllc.
When questioned concerning iho matter ,
Mr. Kimball stated that ho could give no do-
cidcd information und that ho was still at
his post with the Union Pacific. When asked
if ho would accent the position with the
Missouri Pacific if tendered him ho stated
that ho would refrain from givingnn expres
sion under the circumstances for the present.
However , the report comes from a reliable
source aud is generally thought to bo cor
That Mr. Mellon will be his successor in
case the change is made is considered a fore
gone conclusion , In ns much as Mr. Mollcn i i
second to none as a railroad man. both as
manager nnd traffic manipulator. It is
thought that at the meeting-of the direc
torate of the Missouri Paclllc , which will beheld
hold In New York in a few days , matters In
this respect will bo inoro fully developed ,
Tlio drain Tralllo.
At present the gram traftlo is light to and
from nil points , and especially so in Ne
braska. The sudden decline in prices , to
gcthor with , the advance in seaboard rates ,
which resulted from the first meeting of the
railroad presidents , put a damper on the
western grain movement. The oxhorbltant
rail rates [ rendered an inactive ] market , and
the country buyers and shippers wore
placed m such a predicament that to carry on
ttio traftlo meant the risking of a vast amount
of money In an uncertain enterprise , As a
consequence the grain is now ip the cribs of
the raisers , yvhoro It will lllcoly remain for
some tlmo. Conservative dealers state that
fully 35 per cent of the product of 1638 Is
still In the bands of the raiser.

Was America ISvor Discovered ?
At the time when Columhus started
in senrch of the Now World , nearly
every man , woman and child In Eurono
insisted that there was no Now World
to discover. When ho came back ,
crowned with success , n , largo proportion
tion of these good people ixdhorod to
their theory ; and if they were alive to
day iminy of them would doubtless insist
that America had never boon dis
covered at all. A man will give up
anything in the world more rendily
than a pot.theory. . For example , look
at the individuals who still maintain
that consumption is incurable. Dr.
Piorco's Golden Medical Discovery has.
cured thoUsands upon thousands of
cases , und' 'will cure thousands more ,
but those 'pedplo can't give up their
point. Nevertheless the "Discovery"
will euro any * case of consumption , if
