HOMELIKE HOUSES FOR UNFORTUNATES

NORFOLK. Neb., Sept 1 (Speclal)-The
tat of Nebraska. In the Norfolk Hospital
for the Insane, haa this week begun an
experiment In the cottage system of
asyluma for taking care of the insane,
this being the first cottage system that hs
yet been attempted anywhere In the west,
and from the result of the first few days
It la safe right now to say that the system
la going to be eminently successful and far
auperlor In almost every particular to the
older form of institution, In which all the
patients were housed In one great building,
with Iron bars at the wndows and with
each patient sleeping In a little penlten-tlary-llke
The patients who are now at the Insti
tutionthere Is one cottage of women and
on of men re simply delighted, with a
RooseveUlan accent on the word, at their
new home. Brought from the high brick
wall at Lincoln, where the wards were
overcrowded, anyway, to thl little vil
laeps on the hill, with four handsome cot
tages, each a palace In Itself, the men
aad women who are afflicted with Ills of
the nerves are at once pleased at the at
mosphere of it all and proud with a per
sonal pride of the pretty structures that
belong, they believe, to them.
The old hospital, whose walls still re
main visible in the ruins at the rear of
the grounds, was like a penitentiary
through and through compared to the
new. The windows In that were barred
with Iron grates, through which the in
mate could merely gase all day long.
The new, cottages have great, expansive
windows, with merely a little mesh of
oreenlng ever them, making them re
semble the -screen used to keep out the
file. They are, of course, strong enough
to prevent a violent patient from going
through and thus escaping.
Cottages Are Hoaeiik.
Ward In the former hospital were great,
empty, unhoroelike rooms, bare and unin
viting; In the present cottage there are
no wards. On the ground floors of the
cottage are large, airy living rooms, Junt
like those in a magnificent home, with
grates for glowing fire in the cosy nooks,
rich rug on the prettily polished floors,
solid, handsome leather chajra, couches
and divans, heavy . table tor reading or
writing, home, aad furniture through and
through, which make the visitor believe
that he has arrived in com parlor of state
rather than la the living quarter for the
Ve are proud of this room every
thing I so pretty," said on of the fe
male patient, hi speaking of the place.
"W Ilk to stay hex. It I o comfortable.-
The upper floor there are but two floor
to each cottage, where there were four to
the former buildings In one great, roomy
sleeping apartment, with a half hundred
iron beds, arranged In row from end to
end. There will be fewer suicides in the
cottages, it I believed, than in the old in
stitution, where the patients had their cells
to themselves and every opportunity for
self-destruction if they chose. Here, where
they all lie down at night together for
their rest, their minds are kept away
from gloomy melancholia and they take
to the Idea that they all belong to one
large family. With a neighbor sleeping
at your elbow, the chances of ending one'
life are much less than with a door locking
the world away from you. Off this big
dormitory are four little rooms, in case
any of the patient should be 111 during
the night and need special attention.
During he day two attendants and dur
ing the night but one, have charge of this
whole cottage full of Insane people.
There are now thirty-five patients in
each cottage In use, though the plans con
template fifty In each. And these thirty-
five. InBtead of joining patient from the
other cottages, eat at a dining table of
their own, each cottage being equipped
with a large dining room. There la but
One kitchen, however, to the Institution,
the food being wheeled from the main
kitchen to the subkltchens through the
tunnel that have delayed progress this
More Bnlldlitaj Planned.
On the porches the state ha provided a
handsome lot of hickory chairs and settees,
which are enjoyed during the day and in
the evenings. The porches face the south
and east and are almost rooms In them
selves, with high stone walls that give an
Imposing appearance. Cement walk con
nect the various buildings and the large
lawn is lined with drives here and there.
The officers of the institution live In the
administration building, a handsome struc
ture in the center of the row of cottages.
Dr. Alden of Pierce, the superintendent,
has Just this week occupied his suite on
the second floor, while Dr. Nicholson has
not as yet taken the suite assigned to him
on the third floor. Steward Peter will, in
all probability, move Into Norfolk, a thl
was the wish of Governor Mickey.
The buildings are finished with onyx side
walls, tiled floors and slate stairway.
All of the patients In the institution now
are from northern Nebraska territory, and
there are still at Lincoln enough to fill
three more cottage. Another shipment, to
nil the now vacant cottage, 1 expected
soon, though It has not yet been deter
mined whether they will be men or women,
Later another shipment will be made to
fill the reconstructed west wing, work upon
which was this week begun by Contractor
Hermann, and even after that there will
be need of another cottage to care for the
lrixane from this section of the state alone.
Dr. Alden want men more than women
Just now, because there I an enormous
quantity of work still to be don around
the grounds. In spit of the (act that won
derfully much ha already been accom
plished. The present cottage system haa just been
built to replace the Institution that was
burned several year ago. There I lesa

of the separation of the cottage and be

pleted for fir protection. At the time of

BROTHERHOOD OF ST. ANDREW
Twentieth Annual Meeting; to Be
Held In Chicago This
The twentieth annual national convention
of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew will be
held In Chicago In the University of Chi
cago buildings September a to 24. About
1,800 delegates and visitors will ber present
from all parts of the United States and
Canada. Addresses will be made by prom
inent bishops and clergy of the Protestant
Episcopal church and by prominent busi
ness men from all part of the country.
In 18S3 James L. Houghtellng, a prom
inent banker of Chicago and teacher of a
young men' church history and Bible
class, organized the first chapter of the
Brotherhood of St. Andrew. Its purpose
from the start was "the spread of Christ's
Kingaom among men, especially young
men." its rules were but ,two, the rule of
prayer and the rule of service prayer that
they might be strengthened to do the worr
to which they had pledged themselves and
service, meaning the carrying out of it by
personal example and Influence. It was
very successful. The attendance of men at
that church (St. James) largely Increased.
At the end of the second year they had
been the means of bringing Into the church
by confirmation forty men. The idea spread
to other parishes and other Episcopal
churches in Chicago took up the work.
Finally throughout the east the Brother
hood of St. Andrew established many chap
ters, there being In the year 1SSS thlrty-slx
parochial brotherhoods in active work.
The first convention was held In 1886' In
Chicago, with twenty delegates. In 1890 the
fifth convention was held, with 384 dele
gates, representing 175 ohapters. After thH
convention the brotherhood Bpread rapidly
In the east and became representative of
the whole Episcopal church. Many con
ventions have been held since In such cltieu
as Detroit, Denver and the last, 1904, having
been in Boston, with about 1.S0O delegate
The national office of the brotherhood la
now In Boston. It officers consist of a
president, first and second vice president
a general secretary', two assistant secre
taries, four traveling secretaries, who are
constantly organising new chapters, a
treasurer and a considerable office force. A
lxty-alx-page monthly paper, called 8t
Andrew' Cross. Is published, having ' an
Immense circulation, being full of general
Information as to the work of this part leu
lar branch of the Episcopal church. Thire
are thirty-eight member of the national
council, each presiding over a certain dis
trlct of one or more state.
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew 1 not,
distinctively not, a social organisation. Its
work is the furthering of an extension of
the work of the church among men. It Is
largely Instrumental In bringing many men,
especially young men. into the influence ot
the church. There are seven chapter In
Omaha. South Omaha and Council Bluffs,
with an approximate membership of seventy-fly
men. There ts also a junior de
partment, exercising the same Influence
andrrying the same work among boys,
of which, there are three chapter In this
district. Omaha will end eight delegated
to this convention.
In large places where the Episcopal
church Is strong, like Omaha, all the chap
tors meet together every three months in
wiiat is called a local assembly, and which
bus Its separate officers. This Is a clearing
house for Ideas and consultation as to how
more cun be accomplished.
There are 20,000 men in the United States
members of this organization, and about
JO.000 more in England and Canada. The
Brotherhood of St. Audrew, like other suc
cessful organizations, haa its imitators as
well, for instance, "The Brotherhood of
Andrew and Phillip" in the Presbyterian
church, and "The Weslyan Brotherhood" In
the Methodist church, all founded after its
organization and the objects of which are

Mrs. Emily Vawter, colporter of the
American Tract aoclety, whose field is In
Omaha, In reporting her work writ as
follow to her eastern superior:
I have worked In South Omaha along the
north belt line railroad, and found many
foreigners, including Uerman Lutherans
who are drifting away from church. They
are too far from their own to go unless
they pay car fare, so during The week
they work In the olty, and on Sunday In
their gardens. The children do not go to
Sunday school. They are afraid other de
nominations will teach them erroneous doc
trine. I could not sell them books, (or
they are paying for their homes: two men
refused tracts, saying that they didn't read
such stuff, yet several mothers I..M m ,

Among the American 1 found very many
who do not attend church services. They
are not hostile to Christianity, many were
church members before coming, but for
various reasons, falling to identify them
selves with churches her they became
derelict In their duty to Christ, by con
versing with them 1 found many who had
no Interest in religion, although they have
been members of churches. They do not
understand the way of salvation or the
doctrine of sin and redemption. They think
that all that God requires of them Is to
practice the golden rule and that they can
do this outside tnec hurch. 1 give them
tracts to meet their oase and sell them
books if thiy find something attractive.
Their children go to tW'bHiu school to be

church only understands it. giving the
children trod gospel teaciang, through
them these parents may be brought into
the fold again.
I found another claaa who say they
cannot dress well enough to go to church
or send their children to Sunday school.
A lasy mother I find worse to a family
than a drunken husband. To encourage
such mothers to do bettor I tell thein of
many 1 could name whose husbands are

NEW YORK. Bept. 2. The "plrlt of com
mercialism'' In base ball threaten to wreck
the plan of the National Base Ball com
mission for a series of game for the cham
pionship of the world between the pennant
winner of the American and National
The old atory of dollars and cent 1 be
ginning to bother the players again espe
cially those who may take part In the big
game. Under the rules drawn , up last
February to govern the championship
series a lot of apparently fat percentages
were allotted to the players, but when
some of them began to figure out their
hare of some Imaginary receipt It wa
discovered that the club owners would
gather in the most.
During the strenuous day of the sum
mer campaign the players paid little atten
tion to anything but winning game, but
now that the season 1 nearly over the
member of poaslle pennant winner in both
league are getting together on the ques
tion. After the championship In both
leagues are decided the two champion team
will undoubtedly demand a larger share of
the gat receipt from the big game.
Already member of the Giant are ex
pressing dissatisfaction with the terms, and
If the commission declines to raise the ante
It I more than probable that the world'
championship series will not be played un
less the player get together and arrange
the game themselves. This would be a
very unsatisfactory arrangement, and th
game would not be officially recognized a
real championship contests.
What th Playera Say.
In th American league some of th club,
including the Athletic, have not expressed
themselves, but the Chicago and New Tork
player have been grumbling. In the Na
tional league the player say that they are
willing to meet any American league team,
but- naturally they do not expect to play
When the Boston and Pittsburg team
played In IKS the player divided most of
the money, each man getting more than
$1,600. Under the contemplated arrange
ment the players could not hope to realise
more than halt that much thl fall.
Th rule for the division of th receipt
to which the player not exception are
L Ten per rent of the gross receipts of
all of the games shall be paid to the na
2. Forty per cent of the balance from th
first four game shall form a pool for the
players of the two teams to be divided. 7i
r.er cent to the winner and -& per cent to
the loser of th contest.
I. After th 10 per cent deduction for th
commission and the 40 per cent which form
in player pool from u us ml zour
the balance of the gross receipts shall be
divided equally among the two clubs.
There is another clause which provides
that the players shall , be paid a regular
salary during the series. v
'If we play under this arrangement.
said one of the Giants recently, "about all
we shall get will be a chanpplonahip button
and perhaps money enough to pay ex
penses. The generosity of the commission
is amazing. After grabbing off 10 per cent
of the gross receipt they let us fight it
out for a dlvlHlon of the 90 per cent remain
ing. That includes only the first four
What Player Mar Get.
"There will be approximately forty play
er who will Bhare in the receipts. Suppose
we draw 80,000 paid admission In the first
four games, although I do not believe the
attendance will reach that by 15,000 what
do we get? Th commission fixe the price
of admissions, but I hardly think they will
average more than 10 cents. That would
be $40,000. Ten per cent off for the com
mission leaves 138,000. Now suppose we
should win the first three games and lose
the last four. We get 26 per cent of the
3,000. That would give us $9.0u0 to divide
mong twenty men about $600 apiece. It
certainly Is a most liberal proposition to
th loser when compared with what the
Plttsburgs got for losing the championship
to Boston. My figure give the club owner
all the best of It, too.
"I would not blame a manager for refus
