Unquestionably ono of the greatest evlli m
our order , Is the practice Indulged in by the
onicor * of many lodges , of using the wrilteu
ritual In caufmiuK lUc ruuU , BUYS iho 1'y-
thlnn Spenr. This wo understand hn been
prohibited by the grand IOURC , nnd yet not
ono In fifty lodges pays any attention to the
ruling. Something should be ilono at once to
compel the abandonment of the ritual during
rank work. Nothing BO utterly mars the
solemnity of tbo work M to have an officer
hesitatingly read the leisons taught the
candidate or stumble along over ndjeo-
tlvcs nnd Jumble up verbs In an
Incoherent manner. If a man Is not capable
of memorizing his work ho should not bo
placed in a chair. As a rule , the best men
in orcry lodge arc the ones least desirous of
pushing themselves forward for position.
Hut iho members should carefully scan their
material , select the best , and place only capable -
pablo men In ofllco. In this way , and this
alone , can the present prevalent ovlls bo
eradicated. No ledge can hope to reach a
high piano of success until Its ofllcors mom-
orlzo all the work , ftimlllnrl/o themselves
with the full moaning of the lessons to bo in
culcated and endeavor to glvo the novltinto
the deepest Impression possible as ho ad

What the Into liunontod PlinyJEllan
nnd Pnusnnins desuribod as having
boon seen by sailors a Trimmo reporter
saw and handled yesterday a mor-
niaid , says the Ghicng-p Tribune. 13. S.
Skinner , whoso otlico is at U23 Rookery
building , received from Honolulu lust
week what purports to bo n bona lido
mermaid. The late arrival is not what
ono would oxpoctia mermaid to bo after
rending her numerous biographies
written by poets , Ipast and present.
Candidly speaking- is faded. Her
checks are sunkoji , niil ( oycs gone. In
stead of a voluptuous , anil symmetrical
form the human portion of her body ia
merely a succession of badly shaped
ribs , unconnected by the commonplace
but highly use jil "vertobnu. The flesh
and skin are sunken and dried. The
head suggests thosloiver typo of man , or
possibly the higher form of the awe
species. A soft , huir.vj substance , of an
oakum hue , surmounts the head. The
chimpanV.oe-shaljeil' mdiith discloses a
double row of small , pointed teeth. The
piscatorial portion of the freak is in a
bettor stage of - preservation. The
scales are intact' . nsiifretho ! after fins.
The extreme onns of the tail bones are
missing , To a close observer the value
of the specimen , considered from a
naturalist's point of view , is destroyed
by examining the abrasion in the skin
near the shoulder. The interior has
an appearance suggestive of inorganic
rather than organic substances. Mr.
Skinner , however , is loath to look upon
the specimen as anything but a real ,
genuine , old-fashioned mermaid ,
slightly disfigured , but still in the
glass-top box which ho keeps in his

Tliis establishment is a ponmuiont medical Institution , conducted by thoroughly
educated phymciniiB mid surgeons of acknowledged skill and experience. Tlio
Institute buidingH , situated on the northwest corner of Thirteenth and Dodge
streets , is composed of two large three-story brick biddings of over ninety rooms ,
containing our Medical , Surgical and Consultation Rooms , Drug Store , laboratory ,
Offices , Manufactory of Surgical Appliances and braces , and the Boarding Depart
ment Tor Patients , m charge of competent persons , constituting the largest and
the most thoroughly equipped Medical and Surgical kstabllshnionlin the West"ono
of the three largest in the Unilod Stales , and second to none.
We have superior advantages and facilities for treating diseases , performing
surgical operations , boarding and nursing patients , which , combined with pur
acknowledged ability , experience , responsiuility and reputation , should make the
Omaha Medical and Smjjical Institute the flrpfc choice.
You can come direct to the Institute , day qr"night , as wo bavo hotel accommo
dations as good and as cheap as any in the city.
We make this explanation for liio benefit of persons who may fool inclined to
RO further cast for medical or surgical treatment and do not appreciate the fact
that Omaha possesses the largest and most complete Medical and Surgical Insti
tute west of Now York , with a capital of over $100,000.

Best Facilities , Apparatus and Remedies Tor .Successful Treatment ot
every form ol' Disease requiring IMKDICAL or SU11GICAL
In tins department wo are especially successful. Our claims of superiority over
all others aio based upon the fact that this is the only medical establishment man
ufacturing surgical braces and appliances for each individual case. We have
three skilled instrument makers in our employ , with improved machinery , and
have all the latest inventions , as well as our own patents and improvements ,
the result of twenty years' experience.
The treatment of diseases by electricity has undergone gioat changes within the
past few years , and electricity is now acknowledged by all schools of medicine as tlio
great remedy in all chronic , special and nerve diseases , for nervous debility , par
alysis , rheumatism , diseases of women , etc. , and in many eye and ear diseases it
is the most valuable of all remedies.
In order to obtain its full virtues , it is absolutely necessary to have the proper
apparatus. Wo have lately purchased three of the largest and most complete
batteries manufactured , 3d constructed as to give the most gentle as well as the
most powerful current. Persons treated at this Institute by electricity recognize
at once the difference between our expensive and complete electrical apparatus
and the common , cheap batteries , in use by many physicians. Over 3,000 dollars
invested in electrical apparatus.
PRIVATE , SPECIAL , NERVOUS AND
We claim to bo the only reliable , responsible establishment in the west making
a specialty of this class of diseases. Dr. McMonamy was ono jf the first thorough
ly educated physicians to make a special study of this class of diseases , and Ilia
methods and inventions have been adopted by specialists in Europe and America.
lie is the inventor of the Clamp Compress Suspensory , acknowledged the best in
use. All others are copied after his invention. By means of a simple operation ,
painless and safe , recently brought into use , wo cure many cases that have been
given up as incurable by medical treatment. ( Jtcad our look to men , sent free to any
DISEASES OF THE EYE AND EAR.
Wo have , had wonderful success in this department in Iho
past year , and have made many improvements in our facili
ties for treatment , operations , artificial eyes , etc.
Wo have greatly improved our facilities and methods of
treat ing cases by correspondence , and are having bettor
success hfthis department than over before.
We are fully up to the tlmos in all the latest inventions in medical aud mirglcal
operations , appliances and instruments. Our institution is open for investiga
tion to any persons , patients or physicians. Wo invite all to conespond with or
visit us before taking treatment elsewhere , believing that a visit or consultation
will convince any intelligent person that it is to their advantage to place them
selves under our caro.
