HUMMEL OUT DOING ALMS
Btreet Commissioner Closes OfBcs to Hlp
Bury the Dead.
STREET WORKER'S LITTLE CHILD DIES
There Is Need of Help Toward Af
fordlav a Durlal and Men
at City Hall Lend a
The door of the street commissioner's
ofnoe at the city hall was closed Friday
morning. Neither Commissioner Hummel
nor his timekeeper, George Jewett, was
in the ofnoe and their roll top desks were
down. Persons having business with the
street commissioner had to wait. If they
were Impatient and asked why they heard
a story and after hearing the story they
were no longer Impatient. On the contrary,
they were rather glad that the commis
sioner was not doing business.
Thursday morning Commissioner Hum
mel . was told by some of his laborers
that the family of Frank Nestlllne, for
merly one of the street repair gangs, but
among those laid off not long ago because
Of short funds, was In trouble.
"What's the trouble?" asked Hummel.
"Seven-year-old daughter dead," was the
reply. "Bhe swallowed a copper penny and
. it lodged in the intestines, causing gan
grene. She was operated upon, but It was
too late. She is next to the oldest child.
There are three others."
Hummel had a vague idea where Nestl
llne lived. He remembered that the man
had bought a lot, in the midst of weeds
and cornfields near the south line of Miller
park, in the north part of the city. Nestt
line arranged to pay tS a month on the
lot and managed to collect some old lum
ber. With the material Nestlllne built a
shanty and covored it with tarred paper.
Before Hummel found the place he had
to tie his horse, as he could not force his
buggy through the rank growths, there
being no streets or roads.
Finds the Humble Home.
"Stand up here on this porch," said a
woman, "and you can see the top of their
shanty In the weeds down there."
The street commissioner got to the hovel
at last. There was a frail little woman
with a baby at her breast and two other
children playing about the corpse of the
dead girl. He sat down on an object,
whether It was a piece of furniture or
not he could not tell. The furniture was
very scant. He could run his Angers
through the cracks in the thin flooring,
elevated some eighteen Inches above the
"My husband is 'downtown some place
trying to arrange for a grave," the woman
told Hummy "He is all broken up and
pretty near craxy."
Hummel asked her questions. There
was no money, no food and very little
clothing In the family. He had 14.25 in his
pockets. He left It In the little ehanty in
the weeds at the south end of Miller park.
"You take care of the three children you
have left," said he. "We'll take care of
the one that's dead."
Mrs. Nestlllne was- oppressed by the fear
that the dead girl would not have a funeral
and decent burial.
Collection at City Hall.
When the street commissioner returned
to the city hall he told the story. There
was a general turning inside out of pockets
of the men in the street department. Coun
cllinan Nicholson happened to overhear it
and contributed a $6 bill. A big load of
provisions was Bent out from the county
store. Even coal was needed and County
Agent Qlassman provided this and It was
hauled out In one of the city wagons. An
undertaker was seen and a florist. Friday
morning the little girl was given as re
spectable a funeral as any family could
wish for. Besides the street commissioner
and Mr. Jewett, other men from the street
department were present.
Commissioner Hummel and his assist
ants plan to rebuild the flimsy cottage, put
In a new floor and make it warm for the
winter. They are getting clothing together
also for the use of the Nestlllne family.
He had gone back to the first girl he met
In the west. Miss Courtenay. They were
married quietly at Independence Monday
afternoon and went to Excelsior Springs
to spend a brief honeymoon. They are
scheduled to arrive in Omaha, where they
will make their home.

MOTHER AND BABES BROKE
lira, H. B. Wayman, a Widow, Courageous
in Face of Want.
ASSOCIATED CHARITIES CARING FOR HER
Hnsband Died In Montana a Year Age
After Futile Search for Lost
Health and Woman Was
The babies have the whooping cough and
no one would take them In, so Mrs. H. B.
Wayman and her two children had to
sleep three nights in the market house at
Fourteenth street and Capitol avenue.
Their bed and food were provided by the
Associated Charities. Late Thursday
afternoon a place was found for the
family in a rooming house by Superin
tendent Morris of the charity organiza
tion. They will be cared for temporarily
by the county.
Mrs. Wayman's story is a sad one and
the gentle appearance of the woman lends
strength to her tale and enlists the sym
pathy of the listener. As she talks the two
pretty children lean against her knees.
"They are all I have, my precloup
darlings," she says, "but nothing can
make me part with them as long as I have
any way at all. to care for them. If I
only could get to my uncle In Oregon, I
would have a place to stay when I am ill,
as I am now, and when I am well I could
work and get money to bring them up
properly. My uncle is not able to send us
money to travel on, but if we could only
get there he would have a place for us
until my health Is better.
Hasband Died a Year Ago.
Mrs. Wayman's husband died in Mon
tana a year ago, just before the birth of
her little girl. He left the pecking houses
in South Omaha, where he had worked for
years and went west for his health. But
consumption nad already done its deadly
work and he died soon after reaching Mon
tana. He left not a dollar to his wife and she
was alone with a boy t years old and ex
pecting to become a mother again. After
her daughter was several weeks old she
began to take in sewing and managed to
make a living until a short time ago, when
she took the whooping cough. Her health
was not very good anyway and ihe cough
made her very weak. Now, Just as she
Is recovering, tha children have contracted
the cough. Bhe has no money, no friends
and no relatives except her uncle and
aunt in rieaaant Qrove, Ore. Now that
she has a room and food for the children,
she is again hopeful.
"It will take a long time to get money
enough to go to Oregon," she said, "but
I must get sewing enough to do it. I will
be stronger soon and will get work."

DOG MORE C0STLYEACH DAY
City Proserntor Tom Lee Finds Prise
Pnp a Perpetnal Cause of
City Prosecutor Tom Lee (occidental
pronunciation, not Asiatic), has a dog that
is by all rules of the dog herd book a prize
canine. It is of the breed of Boston's best,
a black terrier. When six weeks old the
man that gave the dug to Lee was offered
$100 for the pup. He did not take the
money, but gave the puppy to Mr. Lee as a
token of friendship and a high sign of
esteem. Mr. Lee Jumped at the valuable
pup, took him in his arms and with all the
airs that Beau Brummei might have put
on In carrying the king's royal poodle in
the brave days of old Mr. Lee toted the
dog away to his hotel.
Right there was where the troubles of the
debonair city prosecutor began. The prize
pup was finicky, a veritable blue stocking
of his tribe. Lee hired the colored porter to
take care ot the dog at night and "house
break" htm. Dog fanciers will know that
this doesn't mean burglary, not even second
story work. It Is simply to make the young
dog behave himself. But It is as true ot
the four-footed aristocrat as of the two
legged one that you cannot put old heads
on young shoulders. The colored man took
the dog home and he spoiled a lot of bric-a-brac
the first night. Lee paid for this
with some mifglvlng, but still retained con
fidence in the dog. The next night the
colored dog trainer tied his charge to a
commode on which there was a bowl and
pitcher, with few other articles of use and
utility. In his dreams of frolics In wide
fields the 1100 pup pulled the commode over
and the crockery was shattered; also one
side of the commode was badly disfigured,
and the neighborhood aroused. Mr. Lee
showed his good faith by paying for the
damage, still cherishing his confidence in
Next afternoon Judge Berka's right
hand supporter wanted to lose the pup
while r a went to a ball game, so he
had him locked up in a room ad
Joining the hotel office. The confinement
made the pup mad and he Jumped through
a window, fell on the office floor, in getting
up tipped a baby over and aroused the ire
of the baby's mother, who started for the
pup with a sharp parasol. The pup side
stepped and the woman careened against a
gum machine, which fell against the oflice
bell and made It ring like a fire alarm.
This brought the house policeman, the head
porter and all the bell boys, one of whom
bumped into the bewildered dog and stum
bled over against a dignified old gentleman,
who soaked the boy with his cane. Then
the d. o, g. (not the dog) aimed a blow at
the pup, who was trying to make friends
with him, missed his mark and fell and
hollered for help or the police.
About the time the riot was quelled a
friend of Mr Lee hove In Sight and volun
teered to care for the pup until its master
showed up. gomebedy got to Lee first and
he let his friend keep the dog all night.
The dog (Viewed up the friend s annotated
edition of the Bible, bit into his best shoes
and tore down a lace curtain, upset a
spindle-legged table on which sat an ornate
ormolu clock, and finally was kicked out
Into the street, where he had all along
longed to be. 1
Tom Lee has found his dog again, and as
a faithful publlo official, he says he is going
to keep him from committing any more
assault and battery on anything or any
body. "I've go to do It," says Mr. Lee,
"or the dog will break me. He stands for
a lot of money as it Is."
BUSY TIMES 0N THE BOOKS
Fifteen Persons at Work on Revision
of Registration Records In
City Clerk'e Office.
Fifteen persons are now working on the
revision of the registration books in the
city clerk's office. The work will be about
half completed Saturday. For a time much
trouble was encountered in getting men
and girl stenographers who could do the
work properly, but a force was obtained
after some searching.
Another queer twist In the Iodge elec
tion law has bobbed up in the fact that
the two clerks for each precinct In the
primary election are directly appointed by
the council, despite the fact that the
primary otherwise Is In the hands of the
county government. Whether or not the
country districts will have to go without
clerks and get along with the three regis
trars acting as primary officials, as they
are supposed to do In conjunction with tho
clerks, has not been decided.
New registrars ,are to be named this
year, yet the law provides as It formerly
did that registrars shall serve for a year
after their appointment in September. As
the appointment has to be early this year
on account of the primary, and it did not
take place until the final week of Septem
ber last year, the time of the old registrars
will lap on those of the new. The city
legal department has advised the city clerk
to Ignore this complication.
Nothlngr on the Market Equal to
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera,
and Diarrhoea Hemedy.
This fact Is well known to druggists
everywhere, and nine out of ten will give
their customers this preparation when the
best is asked for. Mr. Obe Wltmer, a
prominent druggist of Joplln, Mo., in a
circular to his customers, says: "There is
nothing on the market In the way of pa
tent medicine which equals Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy for
bowel complaints. We sell and recom
mend this preparation."
Will Act on Farnam Paving,
The Board of County Commissioners will
not hold a meeting Saturday morlng as
there Is little or no business to transact.
A special meeting of the board will he
held Monday morning, at which the board
will take up and decide the request that
the members sign, on behalf of the county,
the petition for the paving of Farnam
street with asphalt.
