' Stripped of her clothing, with her hands

S years of age. was a sample of the cruel
treatment which little Christina Romeo, a
child of 11 years, had undergone, aa brought
ont In the hearing before Judge Wheeler
yesterday morning In the Juvenile division
of the district court.
Neighbors had complained to Rev. Henry
Deling, court probation officer, of the
treatment which the child, It was alleged,
received at the hands of her parents and
other members of the family, and he had
the girl brought Into ceurt.
"If you were berore meass a prisoner and
not aa a witness I should feel prompted
to send you to Jail for thirty days." said
Judge Wheeler to the brother, when the
story of the whipping waa detailed. The
brother,' In excuse for his treatment of his
little sister, testified that the girl waa In
corrigible and persisted In Staying out with
companions of the other sex, contrary to
he orders of her father and mother. There
was no evidence, however, to substantiate
this charge against the child, and neigh
bors declared it false.
It developed during the hearing that little
Christina, although not IS years of age,
was compelled to get up at 4 or I o'clock
in the morning. Work In the garden and do
the washing of the entire family without
assistance. After . the whipping by the
brother Christina fled to the home of a
neighbor, Mrs. Peters, who iestlfled to the

Last Vaar.
Items of Interest before the city council
last night Were chiefly the estimates of the
city engineer on the general sewer system.
These were presented In his reports In de
tail. The totals of his estimates on the !x
sectldns of the sewer are as follows:
Estimated cost of the Mud creek malr
sewer. $H7. "; funds apportioned nnd

passed correcting the defect of the bonds.
He will Surrender the securities he holds
on the perfected bonds being substituted.

The Carpenter Paptr company has let the
coiittact 'for the erection bf Its building at
the southeast corner of Ninth and Harney
streets. The contract went to an out-of-town
concern, whose name the Carpenters
decline to give. It Is thought by local
contractors that It was let on a per cent
basis, the owners to buy all material and
the contractors lo erect the building for
certain fraction of the entire coat. This
belief grows out ot the fact that the Car
penters have been figuring closely on brick.

submitted by various builders about
month ago. At that time a number of
local concerna entered bids, but the figures
were evidently considered high, for the con

Mewibera Call Attention Fact that
't'oaaty tiets Lower Rates aad
All Bids Are Thrown
Owing to efforts of Sunderland Brothers
snd Coutant Squires to have their coal
bids withdrawn because of alleged clerical
errora, tha Board of Education Inst night
ordered the committee on supplies to pro-
ure new bids to be opened and consid
ered at a special meeting next Monflay
nlghl. The committee had reported In
favor bf permitting the two Arms to take
down their offers cm three classes of coal,
to reject the proposals of the Victor White
company and the Coal Hill company on
ccount of Infractions of technicalities and
o award tf.e soft coal to the C. B. Havens
company at the following prices: Nut,
13.H3; lump, 14.13; steam, 12. 68, and anthra
cite to the C. W. Hull company for 19.55.
The bid of Coutant Squires on anthrft-
Ite was 19 and that of Sunderland Bros.
on lump coal 13.74. The former declared an
error of $1 had been made In addition; the
latter that the price of 14.14 for lump nnd
13.74 for nut had become transposed by mis
Cnnnty Bids (taoted.
Member Lindsay vnlred the first objection
lo accepting the report. He said the county
had Just obtained a price of t:.ffS for nut
coal and that the usual margin on lump
coal was only 40 cents more, making it
seem thnt Sunderland Bros., who made the
county hid, could furnish lump coal for
13.38 and still make money. Member Kee-
nlg pointed out that the Havens company
had bid :.R5 for nut roal to the county and
13.tl3 to the board, and that steam coal had
been offered to the county lower also.
It took the members a long time and with
considerable talk to determine what to do,
but the plan of getting new bids Anally was
s greed to.
Printing, stationary and Janitors' sup- ;
plies were apportioned among various bid
ders according to the lowest bids. j

Fake Interview Vrlth Miss Wheeler Is
I'tterly Repudiated by that
What Is good for a man once accused
of murder has proven bad for a tinhorn
yellow paper convicted of unadulterated
James Dlggs, the negro who was charged
with the murder of Frank Wheeler, but
was discharged aome time ago, as no evi
dence could be found against him, prob
ably will be tried on a charge of robbing
Wheeler'a house sometime before the mur
der, on which charge he was arrested Sat
urday. County Attorney Slabaugh de
clares he haa evidence that Dlggs did the
work and he feels confident he can secure
a conviction. f
County Attorney Slabaugh as ye the ar
rest of Dlggs the second time has no con
nection with ths murder case, nor with
the visit to Omaha of Miss Wheeler, sister
of the murdered man. Miss Wheeler called
at the county attorney's office Monday and
repudiated statements Imputed to her In
a sensational evening paper that seeks to
Justify one of Its characteristic fakes. Un
less new evidence conies to light Dlggs
probafbly will not be tried on the murder
charge, as an acquittal would make it Im
possible to try him In the future should
new evidence turn up.

Suffered Tremendous Itching Over
Whole Body Scratched Until
Bled - Worse at Night, With
Soreness and Excruciating Pains
A Western Lady's
"Last year at this t!r I suffered
with a tremendous itching; on my
back, which grew wore and wrtrso, un
til it spread over the whole body, and
only my fnre and tands wero free.
For four months or o-I suffered tho
torment of the damned, and I hnd to
scratch, scratch, scratch, until I bled.
At night when I went tobed thirtus
(rot worse, and I had at times to n't
tip end scratch my bodv all over, until
1 was ns sore ns could ne, and unt il I
S'ifTored excrticiatinn pins. 1 did .tot
know what it waa, and resorted to a
number of blood purifier, tlsirg at
times also Cuticurft Soap. They told
me then that I wss suffering frortj
ecrenih. Then 1 rnd up my mhd
thst I would slso tie Cuticura Ont.
mcnt sod t'utit'tira Hesolvrrrt. I med
t Item eTord'ne, to inrtrtirlions, and ver
soon indeed 1 was greatly relieved.. I
continued until well, and now 1 am
ready lo recommend theOuticura Item
ed ins to any one who suffers as did yon
obedient, servant. Mrs. Mary Mot rer
Sweetwater, OUa., June 28, 1!X)3."
Humors, Eczemas, and Itchings

The sRoniztnn itchmA nnd Inirnfnfe
of the skin, a in pcxema; the frightful
seftling. as in psoriasis; the loss of hair
and critstinjt of scalp, as In scslled
head all demand a rrmrdy of almrt
superhuman virtues to e'ticrMsftilly
cope with them. That Cuticura Soap,
Ointmentt and Tills are such et finds
proven beyond all doubt.
