; ' a repoj-t covering the mork of the first
' i twelve month. The school has been ope-
1 rated In connection with the Juvenile court
and haa provided a home fur children in
t the ciueudy of the court ' until private
; 1 homes, have bevn found for them.'
During- the year 300 children have been
cared for ran ulna- In age from I yean to
. 10. Of Oie 300 about one-fourth were boy',
' : but the girls put In ft proportionately longer
time In -the school than the boys. There
f are now twenty-two children In the home.
When' .1he school , was first opened the
; , building was poorly equipped and the" help
i u not adeouate to the needs of the
children, but the county commissioners
have provided liberally for the school and
j now it Is said to be one of the best In
, I the country. It has been praised by a
' ' number of prominent Juvenile workers who
have visited It. -
Wfiert the school was opened a year ago
! Mrs. Heller," male .assistant and a cook
i constituted the -entire- force.- There are
tiowfle and the commissioners have made
fv 'provision fpr .six employes, the supertn
'j. V tondent, a male helper, a children's nurse,
i a. Junior 'and a senior aas1staht snd the
i cook. All of these assist In teaching the
children and Ih superintending them.
I Uonri car Btsty Children.
During the year the juvenile court, with
the aaalHtanc of the school, has found
homes for about sixty children. This part
of the work is considered very Important
and considerable attention Is paid to It.
The court and thl superintendent have been
asalated by volunteer assistant probation
officers who have been given the super
vision of 'children. Some of these, are
members of the Woman's club, others are
business men who have shown an Interest
In the work of straightening out dolin
quent children. Each one of the volunteers
Is aajced to , become responsible for one
inudy This system has proven successful
and probably wilt be enlarged during the
coming year, .' A need.is' felt for more
Catholics and Jews to volunteer for this
work. It Is always the purpose of the
court to plaCff children in' the custody of
persona of the same religious faith.
One Of the most Important things aecom
pushed Jn the opinion of Mrs. Heller Is seen
. In th ch&Jiareil Attltildn of the nuhlle and
the persona coming In contact with the
k- . school toward it. The people generally, she
have, learned that the school IN to be
n seriously. The parents, too, are gain
ing a confidence in the institution and are
now inclined to- work wltn the authorities,
when at first they showed a hostile attitude
They are beginning to feel that the court

Instance -at Parents in Way.
Only one Instance Is cited In which par
ents went so "far. as to assist their children
to escape from the school. This was In the
case vt Jobn Patterson, who slid down the
water- spout : after clambering down the
steep roof knd escaped with his parents
who took him to South Dakota out of. the
. Jurisdiction of the court. - ; "T .'" . I
The prejudice apparent In the helghbor
, hood at first Is ao giving way. The peo
ple living near the school at first objected
to the presence of the children, but this, it
Is said, is no longer true. The public at
larger Mrs. Heller believes,' have coma to
appreciate, the work the school Is doing.
It Is the aim. of the superintendent to
make the- school a. home for the children,
and to this end It' is organised very much
like a home. . Everything that would give It
the. atmosphere of a penal Institution Is
avoided' and the children are controlled as
much by personal contact as possible. They
are required to do .dishwashing and Other
housework and are taught the simpler kinds

PIONEERS FROWN ON GAITY
Old Settlers Taboo Band and Lem
onade for Their Annaal .
Thursday, September 8. Is the dsy, and
Hansoom park the place for the old set
tlers' picnic which will be given by the
rioneer' Association of Douglas county.
These preliminaries were decided at a
meeting of the association held Thursday
afternoon In the city library building.
Further , plans were left for the arrange
ment committee, constating of A. N. Tost,
David Anderson and Joseph Redmond, who
will report at the August meeting.
The place of the picnic was easily de
termined, the date was decided . without
great difficulty, but debate was waged for
about an hour as to whether or not the old
settlers should have lemonade and a band.
A. N. Yost maintained -that the picnic
would not be a success without music and
several barrels of lemonade, and that ta
bles would not be a bad thing.
Chairman Dunham begged the pardon of
the association for taking 'the floor and
good naturedly took Mr. Yost to task for
suggesting such things.
"Why, it wouldn't be a real pioneer pic
nic with such modern auxiliaries." said Mr.
Dunham. ''Whoever beard of a pioneer
picnic' from a tablet We want a basket
picnic, and we can gather In groups and
have a good time. When we were pioneers
nobody ever thought of lemonade, and the
only music In the-country was made by
the fife and drum, and nobody even had a
fife or a fiddle except Byron Reed and
Harry Deuel. We don't want any music
and I think we ought .to drink Ice water
Instead of lemonade."-
Some present spoke with Mr. Yost and
some sustained Mr. Dunham. The result
was that the association adjourned with
out giving the committee Instructions, and
now no one knows whether the cooling
lemonade will be In evidence at the picnic
or not. .
The committee was Instructed to send
out postal cards to old settlers of Douglas
and adjoining counties Inviting them to be
present. 'The question arose of securing
speakers for the occsslon, but It wss left
to be disposed of at the next session
Governor Mickey was mentioned as a pos
sible guest of honor and speaker. ,
The names of seven new members were
reported,, and it was announced that the
membership had reached 105. .

Kllllsn Fluor has the contract for the
erection of the new hospit.il. The promo
tion committee of the South Omaha Hos
pital association held a meeting In the
office of T. J. O'Neill lest night. A com-,
parlson of figures showed thst the assocla.
tlon had In Its treasury .rviO which could
legitimately be used for the erection of a
new building. The association has two lots
at the corner of Twenty-fifth and O streets.
where the proposed building is to be erected.
When the building wss first talked of It
was thought feasible to ask for donations
arge enough to build a MV0OO building.
but Just at the time when the project was
to be launched the San Franclsro disaster
occurred and the liberal contributions to
hat fund rendered Impossible such a bullri
ng In the Immediate future. The associa
tion has therefore undertaken the task of
erecting a more modest, -el serviceable.
building at the approximate cost of itsonn.
Such a building will accommodate fifteen
patients. The task which lies before the
committee Is therefore to raise IT.Ool) or
thereabouts by personal solicitation. Very
little soliciting has been done by the com
mittee, but what has been attempted has
met with flattering success. So much so
that it was determined to let the contract
for the new building last, night. Bids had
been advertised. previous to the meeting and
on opening them last night It waa found
that five contractors had responded. They
were Armstrong & Johnson, Jonst. 8helen-
berg. J. H. Wlese and Kllllan Fluor. The
latter having the lowest bid was awarded
the contract. He agrees to erect the build
ing In accordance with the plans and speci-
catlons In the hands of W. S. King, the
president of the Hospital association, for
$10,240. This la I1.4H0 lower than the highest
bidder. This contract covers the erection
of the building complete, exclusive of
heating, plumbing -or lighting apparatus.
The latter Items will bring the cost of the
building up to the contemplsted price when
the Item of furniture Is added
Mr. King declared that work on the con
tract would begin Monday morning and the
building would be completed as soon as
possible. The present hospital nas neen
more than self-supporting ana witn tne a'o
of. the accustomed contributions the cash
on hand ha. been raised to $8,000. With the
quent reduction In the expense of rents,
the Investment will be almost on a paying
financial baals. The committees will make
an active canvass of the city , and Judging
from the work of Dr. Blabaugh and T. J.
O'Neill yesterdsy, who raised l40 In less
than two hours, the proposition will meet
with the approval of the people. No one
acquainted with the efficient work . of the
present hospital, with Its restricted faulli-
ties, would deny that the new hospital
would supply a great need and make the
care of the sick In South Omaha much less
a burden. '
Appropriation Ordinance Passed. '
The council' met last night In adjourned
session and Passed the appropriation or-
dinance and also the ordinance fixing the
details of the levy. All of the members
were nresent exrent Councilman J. M.
Bulla. By this appropriate ordinance a
sinking fund was created for the purpose

FIRST CAR.; 01. NEW WHEAT
urela Grades Xo. 2, Weighs fMmty-
Two and Calls fT Seventy
The first cat of new wheat to arrive
In Omaha was received Wednesday by ihe
Updike Grain " company, and Was placed
on sale Thursday morning on the ssmple
tsbles at the Omaha Grain exchange. The
prico asked wss 72 cents. Tho wheat,
which came from Tobias, was of a fine
quality, grading No. 2 hard and weighing
even sixty-two pounds to the bushel.
"We have ten more cars on the rod
Just like It." sal.l C. L. HabctCk ef the
Updike Grain company, "and It Is all from
the country south and southwest of Lincoln.
The crop Is without doubt good In quality
and quantity. Wc had' a letter from our
agent at Tobias this morning, and he said
a piece of 100 seres near Tblaa which
had Just been threshed, had yielded forty
two bushels to the acre."
A peculiar thing about the wheat this
year In that about half the grains are a
golden yrllow, thong" red seed was
planted. On first thought one would say
It had been raised from mixed seed, but
the elevator men say this is not so. Mr.
Babeock' thinks some peculiar climatic
conditional responsible for fhe color.
Some of the dcalera predict the farmers
will not sell much wheat at present prices:
They are being offered1 70 cents for wheat
at Omaha, which means scarcely more
than 60 cents at soma of the producing
A. H. Bewsher of the Omahs Elevator
company says all the first wheat shipped
will be of the seme fine quality as that
received by the Updike ccmpapyi but that
after few rains It will not grade up so
well. This Is because the farmers refuse
to stack their grain, but think to- thresh
it from the shock before rain comes, and
are disappointed. Mr. Bewsher thinks the
tendency Is growing -each year among
the farmers to stack their wheat.
Charles T. Neale has Just returned from
Kansas City., where new wheat is pouring
In from the Ksnsas fields. All- the re-

audience were moved to tears by the elo-
tience of Rabbi J. I.,. Gordon of New Tork
City, who spoke Impressively In Yiddish.
Kneeter, president of the Zionist society,

reviewing the work of Dr. Hertl. The oc

Rabbi Oordon recounted the -massacres
of Klshlnrff and Rialystok and declared
Hersl was the one leader of all others to
have led the Jewish race out of the troubles
that surround It. Ms spoke fecllnsly and at
times appeared almost on the verge of

mournful Intonations of the Yiddish tongue.

Prof. Nathan Bernstein spoke In English,
saying In part:
Type mt History ef Israel.
We are gathered here tonight to do
honor to the memory of a man who per
haps more than any other has labored In
the cause of unifying Isrsel In order that
these people might be a more potent factor
among the nations of the world. To me
mong others, Theodore llersl typifies al
most the whole history cf Israel. Though
for many years he knew not the God of his
Fathers, when he awoke to a realising
sense of the needs of his nation there was
no suffering or travail which could daunt
him from the work In his chosen field. As
says the German poet, 'Who has ne'er
eattiv his bread with tears; who has never
sat the night long weeping on the bed, he
knows ye not, ye Heavenly powers. Ys
bring us Into life, ya permit the Innocent
to suffer. Then the travail rests upon him
though every wrong Is righted on earth,'
'Here as In Hersl's life Is epitomized the
sorrows of a wandering race. Throughout
the ages since the dispersion, the Jew, ex
cept In this land of ours, has been the
scapegoat of the nations. The Russian, un
willing to acknowledge his Incompetency,
his misgovernment, must needs find one
on whom to vent his wrath. Who so pa
tient and long-suffering aa the Jew. But
the time Is approaching when 'there must
be an end to this. The recent regeneration
of Dreyfus points the dawn of a more
kindly civilisation. It adds to our sorrow
for him whom we mourn tonight that he
did not live to see this. Though we have
many leaders representing the various
phases o fmodern Judaism we miss him,
but shall we say that no one will arise
who will bring together the different ele
ments into one grand harmonious whole
which shall labor for the common caus.
