Washington, April . (Special.)
Fersons who have wondered bow the $250.
000 which congress appropriated for the
Grant memorial In this city was to be
pent la statuary have their question an
swered by a visit to the Corcoran Art gal
lery, where the competitive models for the
rant statue are on exhibition.
It will be of Interest to the art lovers of
Omaha to know that Outsen Borglum and
Solon II. Borglum. sons of the late Dr.
Borglum of that city, are represented In
he competition by two splendid examples
ef the sculptor's art. Gutsen Borglum, the
elder of the two, has had a very wide ex
perience since he left Omaha, years sgo.
He bas bees painting In London and In
Tarls. hfs studied sculpture on the conti
nent. Is a medallist of the Tarls salon, and
Queen Victoria before her death honored
him by purchasing two of bis best pic
tures. He la a painter, a sculptor and a
many-sided man with some pronounced
opinions as to what the government should
do In relation to Its sculpture. He believes
that here Is the entering wedge of great
.possibilities looking to the sculpture of
' the future and argues that the amount of
money appropriated for the Grant statue
means life and energy to the sculptor's
art. but If environed by the commercial In
stinct a blanket will be put upon the art
nt the sculptor and opportunities for higher
Ideals sunk Into the mire of the common
llace, simple and Htrlklna.
The first point about the model which
Gutzen Borglum bas on exhibition is the
simplicity of the form of monumental arch!
tecture embodied In its baslo principle of
construction. The structure Is purely
Creek and designedly free from archltec
tural ornament. The rich, sculptured frieze
encircling the entire Inner wall commands
notice because of the proportion In which It
At the beginning of the first wing is the
general from the time of hie lieutenancy to
the time of his generalship. This Is typi
fied by the assemblage of represenatlve
men in spirited debate, some of whom are
resorting to arms. .
The second panel, extending over the en
tire face of the center of the structure and
surrounding the base upon which the group
la mounted, represents the thickening
struggle and the frieze shows war Itself.
Because Orant rose to hit place In history
out ol this struggle, how appropriate It
seems to have him placed directly above

Clyde Fitch alwaya writes interesting
plays. They may not be especially at
tractive or original In theme, but Mr. Fitch
has the faculty of always being able to
create enough of the suspensive Interest
so much sought for by playwrights In gen
eral and so seldom attained aa to hold the
Interest of the spectator from the rise of
the curtala on the first act to its final fall
In the last. "The Climbers" Is an Inter
esting play and more than that It Is a
pleasing one as well. It was generally be
lieved that Mr. Fitch would never write a
play equalling "The Moth and the Flame"
for dramatic effect, but in the new play be
has in many wsys surpassed his effort In
this popular piece. "The Climbers" Is
made out of much the same material as
"The Moth and the Flame," but It has
been given vsstly different treatment. The
thread of love has been drawn so deftly
through it that one hardly realizes that It
is there until the play Is well along into
the third act At first the commotion
seems to be all about the death of
wealthy Wall street broker and his family
affairs, then It branches Into stocks and
bonds and finally Into love. Many of the
scenes are not only original in conception
but unique in their treatment, as, for in
stance, the final one in the second act
which Is played in almost total darkness.
Tbe wretched husband, an embezzler, a
thief, has not the courage, even when
forced to tell his wife of his guilt, to do so
In the light, but asks to be allowed to do
so In tbe dark, that she may not look upoa
bla guilty face. He Is granted this con
cession and after the confession tries vainly
to escape. This Is only one of the several
scenes which possess exceptional strength,
the full value of which are brought out by
the excellent company in whose hands tbe
play has been entrusted. The part of Mrs.
Bterllng, played by Amelia Bingham In the
original New York production, Is capitally
.done by Jennie A. Eustace, an actress who
possesses emotional ability of a high order
and whoee work Is delightful in Its natural
ness. Charles Kent offers a well-drawn
character of a Wall atreet speculstor In
the part of Richard Sterling. His per
formance Is especially praiseworthy for the
attention given to minute details whica
adds much to the effectiveness of tbe char
acter. James Carew is a handsome, manly
Edward Warden and a forceful actor as
well. The balance of the characters are.
with but a single exception, well cast and
the result is a praiseworthy performance
of a play well worth the evening spent (n
its enjoyment. The, engagement continues

AFFAIRS AT SOUTil OMAHA
Gardeners Want the City to Establish Pub-
If you, don't want to lose
your hair, you will have to do
something, that's certain. What
shall it be? - '
Use Ayer's Hair Vigor. It gives
nourishment and strength to the
weakened hair-bulbs, and the hair
remains tightly in place.
It does other good things, too. It
restores color to gray hair, keeps
the scalp clean and healthy, and
makes the hair grow heavy and long.
"Mr hair was (ailing out very fast and rapidly turning
gray, but Ayer's Hair Vigor stopped the (ailing ol the
hair and restored it to its natural color."

OFFICIALS SEEM TO FAVOR PROPOSITION
flcheme Contemplates the Collertloa
of License Money Knfllrlent to
Make Market TMace Self.
Dealers In vegetables want the city to
establish a market. This wss suggested to
some of the city officials yesterday and the
Idea seemed to take. What the growers of
vegetables want is a place where they can
back up their wagons and sell produce.
Those who are pushing the project appear
willing to pay any reasonable license. Tbe
question of suitable market grounds Is whst
is confronting the city officials. There la
ground at Twenty-fifth and M streets and
Twenty-third and N streets, but the beet
place that can be secured Is thought to be
at Twenty-fifth Bnd O streets.
Market gardeners of Sarpy county and
even those who raise truck within a short
distance of the city desire that a market
be established and that a license be paid
by each one occupying a stall. This will
enable the people of tbe city and the gro
cers especially, to secure vegetables early
In the morning, and at the same time the
city will be deriving a revenue. With the
license paid the farmers will want the priv
ilege of going about the city the same as
hucksters in case they do not dispose of all
of their vegetables at an early hour. It is
thought that by leasing ground the city can
exact enough license money to pay It for the
expenditure and at the same time add
something to the city's revenue.
Library Board Acta.
Bruce McCulIoch, who Is president of the
South Omaha library board, announced yes
terday that the books belonging to the as
sociation which had been turned over to the
new organization would be moved on Satur
day of this week to the temporary head
quarters In tbe Murphy block. A written
communication will soon be sent' to the
mayor and council giving notice tbat a site
bas been purchased and the issue of bonds
authorized last fall will be asked for. While
the people of the city voted $5,000 in bonds i
for the purchase of a site tbe board ex
pended only $3,500. Therefore bonds to only
the amount of the purchase will be issued.
Mrs. Bvrke Notified.
Some days ago City Clerk Sbrlgley re
ceived a letter from Mrs. George Burke, 763
North Tenth street, New York City, asking
for Information regarding her brother, John
L. Grady. This letter of Inquiry was
printed In Tbe Bee and yesterday Informa
tion waa received by the clerk to the ef
fect that Grady was at one time employed
at Swift's packing house. He went to
Plattsmouth, where he committed suicide
about eight years ago, and the remains are
burled In the cemetery near the mouth of
the Platte. The clerk will notify Mrs.
Burke of tbe result of his investigation.
City Meat Inspector.
It is understood that Mayor Koutsky
will not at this time take any steps to re
move Clark Howard from the office of city
meat Inspector. It appears that if an at
tempt of this kind is made tbe mayor, or
any other appointive power, will run up
against some of the state laws and "influ
ence," so It looks as if Howard will hang
on. The meat Inspection ordered by the
state and city ordinances will continue
without interruption until further notice.
What Clark Gets.
Frank Clark, who has held down the posi
tion of street commissioner for a couple of
years and has done little, if anything, but
draw his salary, is slated for removal.
There will be little, If any, regret on the
part of the taxpayers oa this action to be
taken by Mayor Koutsky. In speaking of
the matter yesterday the mayor said that
he would like to declare the office vacant
at this time, but as he had so many appli
cations for the place he would defer action
until the council organized.. When this la
accomplished the position of street commis
sioner will doubtless be abolished In order
ts avoid any friction. The plan is to put
the city engineer at the head of affairs of
this kind and give him enough assistance
In order tbat be may be enabled to carry on
the work In an economical manner.
Koatsky'a Plaa Favored.
The plan of Mayor Koutsky to cut off a
lot of useless, or what might be called
ornamental, beads is meeting with favor
with the people. The mayor proposes to
save the city about $4,000 a year by com
bining some offices and abolishing others.
While nothing has been made public on the
matter, it is understood that tbe mayor
will Insist that seversl offices be abolished
in order to cut down expenses.
Want Grado Chanced.
Quits a number of property owners whs
are Interested In the opening of M street
met at the parlors of the South Omaha club
last night to figure on the proposition of
cutting the grade of M street at Twenty
third street. It Is desired by members of
tbe library board to have the street cut
down six feet before the proposed bulldlag
Is erected. F. J. Lewis of Rock Island, 111.,
who is a heavy property owner on M street,
waa at the meeting and he favored the
proposition. A. H. Merrill opposed the
proposition to the extent that be asked for
$500 damages. The plan, however, will
most likely go through, ; notwithstanding
tbo opposition of Mr. Merrill.
City Coaacll Adjourns.
Three members of the city council met
last night and adjourned until tonight. It
is expected that by this time tbe count ia
tbe courts will be completed and that there
will either be a new republican or demo
cratic councilman from the Fourth ward.
Of course at tbe present time there Is
a tie in the council, but tonight there Is
hopes of an organisation. Then tbe coun
cil can get down to business and the
mayor can carry out a number of his

Women who Work.
What tragedy for tha "vrBge-oarninp; woman is hidden
beneath the words " I am not well enough to work " !
ETery penny of her slender income is needed for the
necessaries of life for herself and others. Seldom, indeed,
is it that the girl or woman who works in a factory, or in
some business office or store, has merely herself to support.
Nearly always there is an invalid mother or sister, perhaps
a brother or father.
She taxes her endurance, therefore, to theAast limit be
fore giring up.
She knows her place will be filled by some one else.
She has no money laid up. Her wages hare been in
sufficient for her pressing needs, and she has spent money
on doctors, trying to keep at work and hold her place.
But it's no use she has reached the limit. In her fight
with female troubles she has come off second best, as
myriads of women hare before her.
What will happen, now that she has lost her place and
has broken down in health f
These heart-stirring stories are .being lived all around
us in large cities, and every one of them might hare been
a story of health and energy, if the young woman had but
written to Mrs. Pinkham when she first felt ill. She would
have been told just how to make herself well and strong, as
many other women have, and this advice would have cost
And it is not alone in factories and business places that
women are forced to give up on account of ill health. It is
quite as often the woman who does her own work at home.
This means, generally, doing the work for a household of
seven or eight.
She also compels herself to attend to the daily round of
duties when she ought to be in bed, and does not know
where to look for that reliable help that will put her on her
feet and stop those awful aches and pains.
The sure help for all ailing women, who work at home
or elsewhere, is Lydia . Pinkham's Vegetable Com
