"Omaha ahould make a determined effort
to bring the Great Northern railway Into

south aa Sloe City, and a heroic effort
would no doubt bring the road here, mak

put Omaha in direct connection with the

Hill not only builds the very best railways,
but he develops the trade and commerce
along tbe line. He's now constructing sev

across the Pacific, and he la determined to

take up thla question at once and push it

of the spirit of hla great Intentions.
"During the last year and a half I have
visited every state of tbe union and there

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
County and City Have White Elephant in
Emergency Hospital Contract.
PUZZLE TO GET ROAD TO INSTITUTION
Some Lltlsratlon Will Be Keressary
Before tbe Sltaatlon Will Be
Satisfactorily Adjnsled. Itnt
Settlement Is Kxpected.
The county and city evidently got a white
elephant when a contract was entered Into
last spring for an emergency hospital on
the river bottoms between O and P atreeta.
When It became imperative that something
should be done to secure secluded quarters
for smallpox patients and one or two tem
porary pest houses had been burned by
Indignant citizens the city authorities
looked about for a new location. Some
land was found east of the Burlington
tracks and a tract comprising fifteen acres
waa rented for a term of years. The county
erected a building costing 81,000 on the
ground wtth the understanding that tbe
city waa to maintain the institution. Then
came the question of a roadway to tbe hos
pital. Arrangements were made with Her
man Kountze for the use of a road through
hla ground and also with R. 8. Berlin of
Omaha. Theae arrangements were consid
ered satisfactory and are supposed to be
still In force.
Monday, when the first case of email pox
waa called to the attention of tbe city
physician, the patient was ordered to tbe
Emergency hospital. J. D. Homan, the ten
ant on tbe place, did not want to receive
the sick man as he said he had a steady
Job and would not quit to take care of one
patient. Then came a clash of authority
and tbe agree'ment between Homan at) 3 the
city had to be brought forth to ahow that
he was under bonds to perform tbe duties
he agreed to do.
In the end Homan took in the patient,
although he did it against his will. Homan
is, according to the contract, to receive B0
cents a day for each patient and aome
perquisites which tbe city allows. Thla
doea not seem to suit and the chances are
that other arrangements will soon be made.
But the most serious problem is a road to
the hospital. Selger, who looks after the
Kountze property on the bottoms, haa
placed a lock on tbe gate across the road
leading to the hospital and declines to allow
anv one to ao through the ground unless
paid for it. This is In direct violation of
tbe contract made with Mr. Kountze and
the city authorities will take the matter up
at once and see that Selger takea off the

Printed Copies Delivered.
Bound copies of the city charter and tbe
waa found to be among the boys. To over
come thla tbe principal haa devised the
following plan: For tbe September work
the averages of the boys were taken and
the names of all who had worekd faithfully
were placed on a list that ia posted In the
principal's office. Out of 250 boys In the
school leas than fifty were placed on thla
liat for work they had proven themselves
cspabla of doing. Tbe test used waa not a
comparison of intellect, but Just of honest
effort in lesBons and deportment. Tbe list
ia headed with tbe following verse:
Here's to tha hoy who Is willing to work.
And if he could, not a duty would shirk;
Doing hla best at work and at play.
Such a boy will do to depend on, I say.
Space is left on tbe paper for the name
of every boy In tbe school, these to be
added to aa they deserve to be. In each
room record is being kept of the compara
tive averages of tha boys and girls and the
Improvement among the boys is becoming
ao marked that the list promises to be ma
terially increased the first of November.

The steel viaduct across the tracks on the
county road at Thlrty-alxth atreet la com
pleted and the road la open to traffic. Ow
ing to the recent heavy rains tbe north
I approach, which la a long one. has been
washed out to some extent, but there la
I still a good wagon road. Considerable fill
ing will have to be done by tbe railroad
company to replace the dirt washed out,
but there will, it la aald, be little expense
attached to thla aa the dirt Is handy. Rains
have not damaged tbe south approach at
all. It Is expected that the Elkhorn road

Pinal Estimates Made.
City Engineer Beal haa made the final
eBtimatea on the grading of Twenty-aev-enth
street from B to F atreeta. This work
has been completed by the contractors at
a cost of 81.P16. Now that the grading la
finished the gas company will proceed aa
rapidly aa possible to lower lta mains
and put in new service pipes. All of this
work will be completed before cold
.Petitions were filed yesterday with the
city clerk for the grading of B street from
Twenty-third to Twenty-fourth atreeta and
of C atreet from Twenty-sixth to Twenty
eeventh atreeta. These petitions will have
to go through the regular process, and
there is little hope of the work being
done this season unless the weather should
remain exceptionally good. In case tbe
grading cannot be done thla year It will
be first on the alata for next season.

Tha fine autumn days of the laat two
weeks have been especially profitable for
the nature atudy work of the public schools,
and nearly every day some of the classes
have gone to ths parks at tha closs of the
afternoon aesslon for atudy of the trees,
leavea and blrda. The majority of tbe
atxth, aeventh and eighth grades have gone
to Kivervlew park and tha others to Hana

A number of tha teachers have supplemented

Articles of Incorporation of the Omaha
Wholesale Produce Market company have
been prepared and signed by a number of
the leading commission men and gardeners,
as well as by one grocer. The object of
the association is to create and maintain
a market plaoe where vegetables and
provisions will be sold at wbolerale only.
The capital atock of the corporation la
825.000, -divided Into shares of 810 each. It
ia the Intention of the company to lease a
tract of ground near the commission
bouses, upon which will be erected a num
ber of sheds, under which the gardeners
may display their products, and In the
course of time erect such a market bousn
aa may be desired by the persons engaged
In gardening for the wholesale market. The
incorporators who have so far signed the
articles are H. Q. Strelgbt. J. R. ISnyder,
David Cole, Teter Mogls. August Packmann
and George F. Munro. The three first men
tioned are commission men, the next two
are market gardeners and the last a retail
Bald one of the men who ia pushing the
enterprise: "We have made up our mlnda
that we cannot afford to do tbe small re
tall bUBinesa which will be forced upon
us if we go to tbe Capitol avenue market,
Tbe market gardenera are all busy men.
We can ill spare tbe tlm how required
Tor the aale of our produce and If we had
to go to the retail market and stand there
until he housekeepers buy our atocka wa
would be compelled to hire a man in addi
tion to thoae we now employ, and there ia
little enough profit In the business at thla
Ko Competition with Grocers.
"The grocers naturally object to our
selling goods ' to their customers at the
same rate that we sell to them, and the
consumers would not buy from us if we
offered them goods at one price and tbe
aame goods to the retail dealer at another.
At the same time we can cut the price
materially when we sell at wholesale and
get back to tbe garden."
One of tbe promotera of tbe plan baa for
aome time been negotiating for the lease of
a vacant lot a block from tbe present cen
ter of tbe market place, and while tbe deal
has not been closed. It is expected that pre
liminary arrangements will be made to be
gin woek on tbe necessary buildings In time
to have them completed before tbe spring
trade begins. It ta expected that the ma
jority of the stork In be company will be
purchased by produce men and market
gardeners, while aome of tbe property own
era In tbe commission district are expected
to take a number of shares if necessary.
The retail grocers are not aa a rule taking
any part In tbe plan, and while some of
them will no doubt take a few sharea of
atock, it la believed that tbe corporation
will be controlled by the commission men

Of tbe Present Day. -
The absorbing problem of today .la, bow
to expend one's income so as to attain tbe
beat reaulta; that Is, get full value for one's
It may truthfully be aald that thla haa
been, is, and always will he an absorbing
problem to those with limited means; but
the fact remains that with tha price of
living necessities constantly rising one
must husband one's resources more care
fully than ever before If he would live
within hia Income. In haying that prices
are rising, we except one article w hich haa
come to occupy a prominent place in tbe
family medicine closet, and that is tha
specific for piles or hemorrhoids known as
Pyramid Pile Cure. This remedy la atlll
aold by druggists at the old prices of fifty
cents aod one dollar, and these prices will
remain unchanged. - Those to whom thia
preparation baa brought relief and a cure
after years of suffering do not need to be
told of Its merits; others are advised that
It ia tbe greatest boon ever discovered to
all thoae afflicted with any form of piles:
It is in suppository form, la easily applied,
reaches the seat of the complaint, aud
gives Immediate relief and a lasting cure.
Tbe reader may have tried salves, oln
ments and lotions without benefit, and
feeling that hia money haa been wasted,
resolvea to suffer on rather than experi
ment farther. Tbe reason for ths failure
of these treatments ia that tbey da not
reach tbe aeat of tbe trouble, and hence do
not remove the cause, aa doea Pyramid
Pile Cure. A little book describing piles,
their cause and cure, la published by the
Pyramid Drug Co., Marshall. Mich, and
anyone may procure a copy by atmding
nama and address ta above firm. As show ing
the estimation in which this remedy is
held by ths public tt may Interest Ihi
reader to know that ita aales now exceed
those of all other pile remedies coniMaed.
