It Is Just what every minister of the

A. C. Plyens of Ithaca, N. Y.. writes:
If any fault could be found with your In

much, therby giving too many people the
opportunity to acquire great secrets that
have been guarded and known only by
very few for centuries secrets that confer
upon the possessor a wonderful power over
their less Informed friends."
Rev. John I.ewelllng of Hrownvllle, Neb.,
writes: "You are engaged In a glorious
work. Hypnotism sets us free from pois

throat and lung trouble which the doctors
had pronounced Incurable, I am applying

you upon your work for suffering human

now coming off the press. They are ele

any library. If you would know all about
hypnotism, the wonder science of the age,
personal magnetism, thought force, mag

bis money to hospltuls, public libraries
or anything of this nature. He gives you
a book worth more to a young man than

for your own pernotial use, to keep In your

of the great expense in preparing and

Probably Will Instruct the Secretary
to Aterlle for Bids for the Con
slrtirtlon of the evr llnlld
On Monday night the Hoard of Education
will bold meeting and It Is understood
that the secretary will be Instructed to
advertise for bids for the construction of
the foundation of the proposed high school
building to be erected on the Hoctor prop
erty at. Twenty-third and K streets. As
the board sees money In sight now from
liquor licenses and other sources some
of the memnerg favor the commencement of
Ibe building as soon as possible. It Is as
serted that by the time the foundations sre
well under way, money for the balance
of the structure can be provided. It Is fig
ured that In order to complete the build
ing It will be ntccssary to ask the people
to vote bonds In the sum of $lo0.oni). This
proposition, so It was stated yesterday,
will be submitted to the people at the
One of the members of the board In
speaking of this matter said last night
that within a year sixteen new school
rooms had been added to the bnlldlngs now
In use and that six rented rooms were
now being occupied and paid for. This
shows an Increase In the enrollment beyond
the exnectatlons of the board when the ap
propriations were made last year.
In the matter of bonds 't Is asserted that
bonds of district No. 3 can be sold for
about 4 per cent, as the district Is not
bonded and has property valued at about
$400,000. It Is the Intention, in case tbe
bond proposition carries, to make the Issue
one of twenty years If possible In order to
secure as low a rate of Interest as pos
sible. At any rate bids for the founda
tion will be advertleed for on Monday
night and then the question of bonds will
be taken up after this matter Is dis
Accepts Appraisers' Report.
The officials of tho Burlington road have
notified the city officials that the report of
the appraisers on the matter of vacating
a portion of Thirty-sixth street would be
accepted and that the payment of the $1,041
damages reported would be paid at once.
It appears that tho report of the apprais
ers was not exploit enough In that It did
not carry out the Idea of the engineers In
designating the lines to be followed. The
appraisers were consulted yesterday and
agreed to file a supplemental report show
ing exactly what was contained In the first
report, but making their statements more
explicit. This report will be filed with the
council so that it may be read at thi meet
ing to be held Monday night. As the mem
bers of the council are willing to consider
this supplemental report It Is thought that
the vacation ordinance soen will be under
way. The city officials Insist that the
amount of damages be paid Into the treas
ury before the ordinance is passed and this
has been agreed upon by all parties con
cerned. This Is the only case where the
city has derived any financial benefit from
the vacating of either streets or alleys.

$127,771. This leaves a balance of $17,372.
The fire ' fund Is completely exhausted,
while there Is only $3.88 in the general

Retter's first appearance on a stage in this

manager of the James A. Heme attrac

FATHER MARQUETTE LECTURE
Life nnd Times of the Famous Mis
sionary the Subject of a Dis
course by Bishop O'Oormau.
Right Rev. Thomas O'Gorman, D. D.,
bishop of the diocese of Sioux Falls, S. D.,
will deliver a lecture before the Omah
council. Knights of Columbus, and their
guests, at Boyd's opera house on the even
ing of February 13. Invitations to the
lecture are now being issued.
The subject chosen by BlBhop O'Gorman
Is "Father Marquette," the famous pio
neer missionary of the great lakes and the
upper Mississippi. In the strenuous com
mercialism, of our day a subject which
carries the listener backward two and a
quarter centuries, when the pioneers of the
new world penetrated the trackless wilder
ness and blazed the path of civilization
and nationhood, promises Intellectual pleas
ure, recreation and instruction. The west
Is riot fas removed from pioneer days, and
many now living have experienced the
hardships and endured the privations In
cident to the development of a new country.
But western pioneer days are as of yeBter-
Ltiay, are Incidents of the onrush of settle
ment, wnne tnose or Father Marquette
were over a century In advance of white
civilization and settlement. His zeal and
devotion, his courage and" his achieve
ments cbmbinp to make his one of the
grand characters In American history. It
Is a singular Incident of his career that
. the eUe of tne westernmost post estab
lished by him, In what is now the state
of Illinois, Kankaskln has been obliter
ated by the shifting channels of the Mis
sissippi, while on the site of his hut on
Lake Michigan has grown up the second
largest city In North America. A picture
of Father Marquette adorned one of the
series of special postage stamps Issued by
the government to commemorate the
TransVnlesisslppI exposition, and a heroic
statue of the missionary has been placed
by the state of Wisconsin, In Statuary hall
in the national capltol. Both tributes to
the memory of the famous pioneer called
forth fanatic protests at the time, but no
attention was paid to them.
Bishop O'Gorman Is a stranger to most
of the people of Omaha, but not a stranger
to the northwest. Boston Is his birth
place. He Is on the last quarter of his
sixtieth year. He was ordained a priest
at St. Paul, Minn., November 5, 18t5, and
the greater number of his years Blnce then
have ben spent In the diocese of St. Paul.
During Archbishop Keane's administration
of the Catholic university at Washington,
Father O'Gorman was one of the professors,
and his services were rewarded with pro
motion to a bishopric. He was conse
crated by Cardinal 'Gibbons In Washington
April 19, 1806, and shortly after took
charge of tho diocese of Sioux Falls, suc
ceeding the late Bishop Marty.
During his stay in Omaha Bishop O'Gor
man will be the guest of Bishop Scannell.
On the evening of the 12th the visiting
bishop will be tendered a reception and
dinner at the ller Grand by the knights and
the local clergy. The committee of ar
rangements consists of Edward W. Sltn
eral, William Hayden. Martin Langdon,
Thomas J. Fitzmorris, John E. O'Hern and
Thomas F. Swift.
