The Omaha Gardeners' association has
organized an auxiliary street cleaning de
partment under ths supervision ot ons of
its officers. The duty of this department
Is to keep clean the streets and walks
within ths area of Howard aad Eisventh
streets which has been squatted upon by
the gardeners pending ths settlement of the
market house question.
"When ws found that we would bs un
able to sell anything on the Capitol avenue
site," said a member of the association,
"we decided to return to the old stand
on Howard street. Ws soon found that
while ws might be permitted to remain
there temporarily, we would receive bo
attention from ths city. Decayed vegeta
bles, spoiled fruit aad skins trvm bananas
and oranges began to accumulate ia the
street, and tbe place became unwholesome
la ths extreme. Some ot our members
feared that persona owning or occupying
property la tbe neighborhood would make
complaint, and as the city was la no posi
tion to keep tbs place clean, ws decided
to organise a street cleaning depart meet
of our owa. We did this all ths more
readily because the cify is not receiving
ths usual fees from the gardeners, the
market inspector making no vlalta to this
place. Ths members who favored the Idea
said that property owners and others might
have causa for action agatnst as for main
taining a nuisance If the street was not
classed. The party engaged will start ta
work Monday morning aad wo expect to
have no more decayed vegetation oa the
street-" - - '

myself. I used to live) over In Iowa when
a youag fellow and I can distinctly remem
ber ths Sunday program.? I had a colt that
I had broken at a cost of three ribs, and
a buggy I had bought at a -cast of two years'
saving aad a pet heifer. -, I had alao a whip,
a fancy lap robe and a black suit that
went with ths rig. That suit was somber
as aa undertaker's and eavy aa a buffalo
robe, but it was full dress with ins and
always worn when I drove- over to 'my

WATER COMPANY HAS TWO YEARS MORE
txplratloa of Its Fraaehlao May
Plot. However, Flad City Flaaa
clallv Able ta Bay a
There is considerable talk about ths city
voting bends and erecting lta owa water
works and electric light plants. The water
company franchise expires ia two years,
ahile the electric light franchise has over
twenty years yet to run. Some cay that by
the city erecting a plant of lta owa it ran
furnish water asd light to consumers at a
moth less rate than la being paid now.
While tbe scheme Is only In Its Infancy,
objections are already being made. In
connection with tbe water proposition It
is asrerted that If water be taken from ths
river at thia point It will contain a great
amount ot refuse dumped Into the stream
at Omaha, and consequently be Impure. The
fact that the water now served patrons
comes from Florence after going through a
number of settling basins ts considered
good enough tor the time being. As to tbe
lighting proposition, the city would be
forced to purcbaae the franchise cf tbs
lighting company now supplying light to
the city, and this would be expensive.
The question Is whether the city will
Increase Its bonded Indebtedness $1,000,000
or more in order to take up this work.
Just now the general bonded debt ia $207,-
X0 and the city has all it can do to pay
liHereot. to say nothing of Increasing the
debt. While a great many citizena would
like to see municipal ownership ot water
and lighting plants, there does not seem to,
be any great desire to vote bonds for a
turn aufficlent to Install such plants as
would bs needed to supply the city with
sn abundance of light and water. A oom-
promiae will most likely be made when It
comes to renewing the water contract and
a reduction In the annual hydrant rental
will doubtless be brought about when the
time for taking up the matter comes

Too Great a Risk.
In almost every neighborhood ac aone
bas died from sn attack of colic or cholera
morbus, often before medicine could be
procured or a physician summoned. A re
liable remedy for these diseases should be
kept at hand. Tbe risk ia too great for
anyone to take. Chamberlain's Colic
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy baa un
doubtedly aaved the lives cf more people
and relieved more pain and Buffering than
any other medicine in use. It csn always
be depended upon.

"The Toung Women's Christian associa
tion Is not a demoraliiiag charity, but an
aid to those who aid themselves. Ita work
is formatory, not reformatory. It has kept
bouse frugally; has grown rapidly and
greatly; needs a new home and now pro
poses to build one," affirmed Mrs. Lillian R.
Harford, president, in her address at the
First Baptist church Sunday morning.
In preparing the way for the pledge cards
that were passed at the end of the service
she told ot the plan on which the associa
tion bad worked so successfully that it now
becomes necessary to build larger quarters.
"We have one floor of the Paxton block,
partitioned Into rooms fitted ss an office,
two as parlors or reading rooms, a large
lunch hall, a kitchen and a gymnasium.
Originally It was thought thst these quar
ters would be smple for many years, but
they have not proved so. I with all might
see the women who come to that little
office. Some seek friends, other employ
ment and others Just Information about tbe
city, and many, many of tbem wish to
sleep under the association roof, not
gratuitously, but because of the home-like
comfort and safety thst they feel Is there.

"I wish yon might see the parlors Ideal
lounging places, with every chair and sofa
frequently filled snd mors needed.
"And the lunch room 100 girls eating
their lunches there every noon st a cost to
them of but 1 cent snd tbe privilege of sup
plementing what they bring with a cup ot
coffee, cocoa, tea or milk tor $ cents. It Is
within their means snd yet the revenue as
sists materially In supporting tbe associa
tion. "Then I should like to show you the gym

has been carried far beyond our greatest

Ths effect of the, extension of tbe Elk
horn road Into northern Nebraska waa felt
appreciably, as one new stock and consid

tbs proposed Hoe of that road were aold by
local jobbers. This territory will undoubt

ing of the railroad and when tha road It
built it will come into cloaer bualneas re.
1st tone with this city. Ths deslers have la
tha past dons considerable business at

la tbe opinion of Jobbers, Is dus to .the
trade excursion, and this makes them all
the more anxious to take the trip lot
northers Nebraaka.. This territory bas baea
debatable ground beta sen Omaha and Sioux
City for many years. Omaha Las the better
of the situation la many places, but It still
divides with ths Iowa town to an extent not
satisfactory to the local dealers. Plans for
this trip ars being arranged, but will not
be ready to be aaaounoed for a day or two,
as questions between tha club committee
and the railroad have not beea settled.
