DISEASE IN THE CITY DAIRIES.
A Milk Inspector a Pressing Need
AVnnts Drtinnucs of the Motor
Company An Exploited Hon-
antlon Muro Mention.
Urccnt Nerd ofn Milk Inspector.
Dr. Ramncclottl , city veterinarian of
Omnhn , tnailo u visit to the Bluffs to Investi
gate the eye disease which Is gradually ox-
Lending among the cows of this city. Dr.
Stewart , of this city , an assistant state vet
erinarian for Iowa , accompanied Dr. Ram-
acciottl upon his tour among the herds of
cattle. Too doctors agree that contagious
ophthalmia li prevailing among the cows.
Seine of those dairies deliver milk In Omaha
and Horns which wore published in
the Council Blurts and Omaha dallies
compelled one dairyman to secure a
cortillcato of good health for his
dairy before his Omaha customers would
accept his milk. They nro more particular
In Omaha than in Council Bluffs about such
things. Itis learned from Dr. Stewart that
ho was recently called to Omuhn to pro-
Rcriho for n dairy and instruct the owner
how to prevent the further spread ot this
same contagious ophthalmia in his dairy ,
several cows being nflllctcd already. Tnis
dalrymun'claimcd that ho know of several
Omaha dairies suffering with the same dis
ease. The Omaha authorities should look
after the matter closely , mid the Council
UluIts authorities might do the same thing
to good advantage In this cit.v and vicinity.
The uppolnlmcnt.of a milk Inspector Is
something that has been needed feu1 some
time , but the council has thus far
fulled to take any action in the matter.
The doctors state that a great deal of sick
ness Is caused by Impure milk , and have fern
n long time urged the adoption of certain
rules or the passage of an ordinance that
would cover the mutter , and insure the citi
zens from any Imposition on the part , of av
aricious or unscrupulous dairymen , who sell
the lacteal fluid regardless of Its quality or
condition. If suuli rules wcro adopted ,
the prldo of the noncst dairyman
In having n first class certificate
of his dairy would tend to bettor attention to
the cows , which would In turn better the
quality of the milk , while the dishonest and
careless milk peddler would tlnd suuh re
straints Imposed as wouldpreventhlsspread
ing disease In disguise among the city's thou
sands. A provision that would require each
dairyman to pay for the Inspection of his
dairy by a competent man , appointed for the
purpose , would relieve the city of any outlay
in the matter , und at the same time irrcatly
benefit the public. The council should take
action in the matter immediately.

"Oh , n city boll is all right , " remarked a
well-known citizen and capitalist yesterday
afternoon when tnat subject was broached
in bis 'hearing , "but what wo want first is
something of far more importance , and that
is a free bridge across the Missouri river
between Una city and Omaha. Until wo
have one wo will never fully understand
what a vast benefit it would bo to us.
Omaha is just as anxious to have ono as wo
are , and they would bo lust , as much bono-
fitted. It is apparent to any one that , thu
second bridge added very materially to the
benefits derived from the first ono , and a
third one , if a free bridge , would do more for
the two cities than both the present ones.
When the Union Pacific brldgo was first
built it cost a half a dollar to go across. Now
a passenger can oross-tho Broadway bridge
for five cents. Just notice the difference in
travel caused by a reduction of faro , then
think what the result of a free bridge would
bo , and ask wbother or not it can * bo
"It seems to mo that wo cannot afford to
do without it , and I am far from being alone
In that opinion. How can it bo built ) Bv
the two cities , of course. A bridge could bo
built for $400,000 , which is considerably less
than the now BEE building cost , and Omaha
and Council Bluffs could pay for it. Wo
could not issue bonds , but wo could vote n
tax of so ruucn a year , in which manner wo
could pax our part. Another plan which I
have heard proposed is for the counties of
Douglas and Pottawattamio to put up a free
bridge. I am not in favor of that idea ; that
is , I don't bollevo that it would work. I
don't think \vo .could carry it through the
county. You know how it was when wo
tried to get the court house , and It would bo
the same way on this , with the exception
that where the court house proposition was
pulled through , the bridge would bo de
feated. I have talked with a great many
farmers concerning it , and I firmly believe
that every farmer living within ton miles of
the Bluffs would bo in favor of It
'There is , however , a largo voting popula
tion outside of that radius , and this , with the
usual percentage ot kickers to bo found in
the city , would defeat the proposition to
build a brldgo at the expense of tbo two
counties. But this would not hold good
when the proposition to build It at the ex
pense of the two cities was advanced. Any
man of good common sense can readily see
the immense benonts that would accrue to
the city if this wcro the case. Tbo cntlro
western portion of the city would bo settled
up as if by magic. Tbo two cities would then
virtually become ono , and the difference
would bo in name only. That is the only so
lution of the question as to settling up the
bottoms. There are a great many who re
gard this scheme as visionary , impracticable
and with little prospect of realization , but I
toll you that such a bridge will bo built , and
that , too , before many years. It is to bo ex
pected that the companies owning the other
bridges will throw all the cold water on the
scheme that they can , but then It is a matter
of dollars and cents with them.
"Now don't think for a mlnuto that I op
pose the city hall schema , for If over u build
ing was needed a city hall Is needed in Coun
cil Bluffs. I am simply urging the Import
ance of u free bridge , besldo which the city
hall Question sinks Into comparative insignia-
cancn. If the bridge was built it would not
bo long until n fur hotter city hall now con
templated could bo erected , and there would
bo many thousands moro of citizens who
would help to build it. "

FAILED TO GET THERE.
Ulsconrnglng Experience of a Young
Mnn on n Railway Train.
I boarded n Chicago , Milwaukee fc Si.
Paul train in a little town in Wiscon
sin to go to another little town about
twenty-live miles farther north , says a
reporter for the Chicago Times. I had
barely taken my Boat when my atten
tion was attracted to a younp ? lady
across the aisle. I tried to see what
color her eyes were and thought ono mo
ment they were brown , but the next
moment I was sure they were bluo. Just
then she caught mo easing1 at nor and
her oycs became black. She would
have boon charminp ; with eyes of any
color anil I considered myself lucky in
having a pretty face to look at. For
I think with Owen MoreiUth :
"If a woman be prntty to nio 'tis no matter
Bo she blonde or brunet no she lets me look
at her. "
She was certainly pretty nnd I was
pretty certain that she did not want mo
gazing at her , so I took an inventory of
her luggage , with the following result :
Two large bundles.
Four small bundles.
Four boor bottles.
Those beer bottles Mammal"I
oven as beer had oft times done. There
wore three brown ones and a green ono ,
nil tightly corked and resting comfort
ably on "tho seat by the side of the
charmer. I foil to wondering if the
young lady had been to Milwaukee and
was taking homo the bottles full of
their liquid joy as souvenirs ot her trip.
Then the thought carao galloping
across the fresh field of my mind that
the train had come from Waukeshn ,
and that it was mineral water that
was in the bottles.
Imagine my joy on finding that the
young lady was going to get off at the
same town toward which I was bound.
When the engine whistled for the sta
tion she took the four beer bottles in
her arms and commenced to collect the
rest of her packages. I saw my oppor
tunity. I instantly embraced it , regretting -
grotting that I could not include the
fair mistress of the beer bottles.
"Can I bo of any service1" ! I asked ,
with my hat in my hand and my heart
in my throat ,
"If you will be BO kind , " smiling
I put a boor bottle in each side coat
pocket. Then I put a small bundle in
each of ray pistol-pockets. I took the
two largo bundles and securely clinched
one under each arm. Then I took the
grip in my loft hand and turned around
to hear my charmer say :
"There is a jug of mineral water close
there under the seat. Can you got it ? "
I got it. This loaded mo down so that
I would not have been allowed on a
Chicago boulevard , where heavy traffic
liut that jug ! It was full grown and
also full of water. It was naturally a
heavy jug and ago had apparently In
creased its embonpoint. It seemed to
ho mocking mo. I seized it by the hnn-
dlo with the only hand I had to spare
and bogn.ii lifting. My arm stretched
about four inches , but I was still able to
swing the jug clear of the floor.
Then the procession started. The
girl walked sedately down the aisle ,
with the trap-wagon and jug bringing
up the rear.
We finally reached the depot plat
form. There was a bus there , hut no
drays , so ray charmer asked if I would
walk with her to her house , as it was
"not far and is up toward town. "
I was too busy too toll her that I
would rather bo excused , und again the
cortege moved on. Before wo had gone
two blocks the arm which was carrying
the jug stretched another four inches
and I was compelled to walk on my tip
toes to keep the jug oil the ground.
My companion kept up a gay and f < ? B-
tivo chatter all the tirao , laughing
gayly in her innocent girlhood. She
said ulio did not like living in a little
town nnd thought this particular little
town "just horrid. " In this I was pre
pared to agree with her in a mild sort
of way. She asked rae if I thought I
would remember hor. My only reply
was to try to raise a Uttlo higher on my
toes and swing the jug as a signal that
it would bo a bond of union between us.
And hero I will say that I still remem
ber her and have us a momenta of this
occasion an arm that is about six inches
longer than It should bo.
"It is dreadfully warm for us to walk , "
she said , reminding mo of the remark ,
"Thus wo plow along , " once made by
the ( ly to the ox. I was carrying a load
heavier than a Kansas mortgage , while
she had only two small bundles , two
boor bottles , and a bird cage nnd was iu
the shade of an umbrella.
At last wo reached a little brown
houso. Opening the gate my talkative
friend started toward the house , only
to moot a sour-looking man , into whoso
arms she How with the cry of "Jack ,
darlingl" Two Uttlo children uppoared
about this time and clung to her dross
witn glad crlos of "Matauiul Mammal"
I did not sot tlloajutr down , becmiso it
wng already drtvtwg down. I simply
turned the hdfttlio loose. While the
tableau of " .TnokrdarHng"waB delight
ing the iiudlouJtO'J sot the grip by the
siuo of the jug and , laid the two grips
alongside. I plncfed the two small bun
dles on top of tho-lnrgo ones and stood
the two boor bottles carefully up. Then
I sncalcod away- the tableau having
hoon encored , ll'ftiul no dcslro to moot

TEETH NO MATCH FOR HEELS.
A Donkey Attacked by n Horse Kicks
Ulu Advcmnry to Death.
A terrific fight took place on a farm
near Dockertown , Sussex county. N. J. ,
recently , in which the contestants were
a largo and powerful donkey and a val
uable horse , which was being trained
for the r.\co track , says the Now York
Herald. The horse was the assailant ,
hut ho was no match for the heels of his
opponent , and was killed.
The two animals had fought before ,
the horse generally being the aggressor.
On the day of the last light choy were
pastured in adjoining fields. The fence
separating them was broken in ono
place , and when the horse made this
discovery ho at once began hostilities.
The donkey was grazing peaceably on
his side of the fence near the break
when the attach wastnado on him.
The horse made a Hying leap ever the
fence , landing with his forefeet on his
enemy's hack. As soon as ho landed ho
made a vicious bite , taking a hig piece
of llosh from the donkey's neck.
The surprised beast began to bray
and kick in an olTort to dislodge his
assailant. For some time his oiTorts
were unavailing , but at last ho ducked
his head nnd elevated his heels , and the
horse was thrown on his side ootweon
the donkey and the fonco.
Quick as lightning the donkey turned
and began to kick. The kicks came
with lightning-liko rapidity ; and with
the force of a catapult , giving the prostrate -
trato animal no chance to defend itself.
Every effort to rise was mot by the iron-
llko hcols of the donkey , and the unfor
tunate boast was knocked ever again.
In a low moments the horse was com
pletely knocked out nnd was screaming
with pain and terror. The donkey kept
up n ceaseless rain of kicks , and evi
dently had no intention of letting up
until his opponent was dead. Both the
contestants wore covered with blood.
The braying of the donkey nnd the
screams of the hprse attracted a couple
of farm hands. t As soon ns they arrived
they took fence rails and tried to boat
the donkey off ihjs prostrate foo. The
animal had his "fighting blood thor
oughly aroused , arid resented the beat
ing. It would perhaps have gone hard
with the men if the horse had not at
tempted to get up. Turning'on him ,
the donkey gave a final kick which
broke the hors'dTs jaw , nnd ho fell back
to the ground nnd with a moan rolled
ever dead , and the victorious donkey
appeared to ho satisfied.
Unless the owner of the horse kills
the donkey ho will recover , though a
pound or two of flesh was bitten out of
his neck. < ) '
Our Telegraph HyRtoin.
Prof. Richard'T. Ely thus describes
his experience with' bur telegraph sys
tem in the "North American Review :
"A few years ago I wanted to tend n
telegram of importance from Richmond
mend , Va. . early Monday morning , hut
the telegraph office was locked until 7
o'clock in the morning. This could
have happened , I believe , in no city of
76,000 inhabitants in western Europe.
During the summer of 1887 I sent a
telegram from Baltimore to Fredonia ,
in Now York state ( about forty miles
from Buffalo ) , on Saturday ; on Sunday
I sent a second both of great import
ance ; and Sunday , receiving no an
swer to either , started for Fredonia , to
arrive the same day on which the tele
gram came namely , Monday. That
could scarcely have happened in any
country in western Europe. "
