the Insufficient accommodations at tha

pretense of corrective or reformatory work
can be done In them. They are sufficient,
he said, for prisoners awaiting trial, but

CRUSADE AMONG THE DAIRIES
Health Commissioner Conducts Cam
paigns of Cleanliness Amosg
Men Selling Milk.
Health Comm'ssl iter Connell la on a
campaign of cleunlnuorf among the large
dairy companies of the city. It Is not so
much the quality of the milk that Is now
occupying the commissioner, but the con
ditions under which It is handled. Satur
day morning he wrote to the Waterloo Milk
and Creamery company, stating that that
company's product must show a vat Im
provement, and that quickly, or he would
take steps to close the Omaha plant.
Part of Dr. Counell's letter reeds: "You
have to make a radical change in tha way
you handle your milk. You must Immedi
ately remove your works from tiie base
ment. Tho way you clean and send out
your cans, that alone could be the cau-e
of the amount of filth and bacteria which
your milk contains.
"It la not my duty or place to teach you
how to run your business and I have no
desire so to do, but from this time on, your
milk must show a vast Improvement or 1
will take steps to clow your entire plant
up. You have promised to make several
Improvements and changes to bring about
a cleaner condition of your milk, but every
sample we have got and have examined
ahowed no Improvement."
Dr. Connell said he had been unjurtly
accused of exercising particular vigilance
over the smaller dairymen and letting the
larger concerns go. He declared he In
tended to treat all alike and look only to
the health of the city.

0NVENTI0NAL NOTIONS THROWN AWAY
Six Eaaentlal Requirements Carried
Oat In Spite of Architects and
Builders Equipped with.
In spl'e of opposition on the part of
architects and builders, a Mrs. William
A. Glasner of Chicago, has succeeded In
having built according to her plans a
unique home which is to solve the servant
problem. For several years she struggled
with the problem of keeping good servants
and was worsted, for the cook refused to
wash, to scrub, or clean, and the house
maid and laundress equally were unoblig
ing. It was after one of these household dif
ficulties that Mrs. Olasner began to plan
her servantless house with the help of her
husband, and these were the requirements:
1. It must be on one floor.
I. There always must be plenty of hot
water, summer and winter.
3. There must be the most cheerful
kitchen whloli could be built .
4. There must be few rooms to take
o. Kverythlng must be arranged to make
work easy so there would be no need of
6. There must be plenty of windows
and no accommodations for servants. It
whs In fact to be an ideal home for only
two people, husband and wife.
All Conventional Notions I pact.
Th architects were In despair when
they saw the requlremcnta. and the plans
Mrs. Glasner had made. They upset all
theories on building and were voted Im
possible, but Mrs. Olasner was determined
and In the end succeeded in finding an
architect who carried out her plans, and
the result la an Ideal home.
Tho house, or rather bungalow, for It
follows the plans of California bungalows
and la built In a rambling sort of man
ner to accommodate tho rolling ground on
which It stands, Is In Gleneoe on Bher
llan road, beside one of the ravine
which are ho characteristic of that sub
urb. The outside walls are of wide, brown
'stained, undressed boards Joined together
horlxontally with projecting battens, this
'simple treatment forming a perfect har
mony with the trees which surround the
house. An octagonal extension on the
east side Is carried to the roof and forms
one of the most charming little sewing
, rooms a woman could dream of, whllo
another octagonal room near the entrance
makes an Ideal den that, In case of vis
itors, is furnished with a lounge bed so as
to be used lor a bedroom. Then there
, Is an octagonal summer house connected
with the porch by a rustic bridge that
goes across a small ravine at the back of
the house. The plain roof Is broken only
by a large chimney. Vnder the wide
caves an almost continuous Bcrles of win
dows runs around the house, giving the
sunlight for which she stipulated. Tho
windows ore In groups of three with a
large stationary plate In the center to give
an unobstructed view of the lovely sur
rounding landscape, and flanked on either
side by casements of decorative glass that
open outward, cottage fashion.
On the "west, where the sloping bank
admits of it, the house la two stories, to
allow basement room for the laundry and
boiler room, and a large room which
later Is to be turned into a billiard room,
mall derorated windows light this.
On entering the front door, which Is us
unconventional as the house and Its own
ers, one rteps at once Into the living room
(-0x27 feet), with the octagonal den fifteen
feot in diameter opening off of it. On one
side of this living room Is a great fireplace
built up to the wall, made of artistic dull
brick and large enough to accommodate
good sized logs. Besides this fireplace Is
a built seat with n row of windows over
it, while on the opposite side, under the
casements with their broad sills, run lew
built In bookcases rilled with the favorite ,
books of the owners. The walls and ceil
ings are banded simply with a system of
wooden strips that oerve to outline various
wall surfaces, and there ure few moldings
and no fancy trim to catch the dust.
From this living room opens a large bed
room (16x3) feet) with two great closets,
one for the master and one for the mis
tress, and also a beautifully tiled bathroom
that also can be entered from the hall
that goes from the living room to porch.
The little octagon sewing mom also opt-ns
from off the bedroom, and makes a charm
ing little dressing room.
Xo Dining Room In the Hoaae.
There Is no dining room In this house.
for, as its mlstreaa raid: "A dining room
often is the ugliest room in a house, and
It Is one more unecosaary room to keep
clean. It is only convention that dictates
that we must sit down In state to eat our
meals. People who come here look aroui.d
and aay: "Why. where Is the dining room?'
They seem to think it half savage to eat
on the porch as we do. In cool weather
we will eat In front of tho big glowing
grate fire, so you ' see we do not need a
dining room. Then, too, not having a
dining room does uwiy with so much work.
You see I have two-deck cart, and when
I wash my dishes and silver I put them on
It. I also place thereon the meal entire
when It Is ready to serve, s-j all go to
gether to the jorcli or living ro.mi In on
trip. The courses are nerved from this
cart, and the dlhcs are placed on the lower
shelf and all finally are wheeled back to
the kitchen to be washed when t lie meal
U eaten." This cart, by the way, which
Is a great labor saving proposition. Is an
Idea of the owner.
Mia Glasner wouldn't have a dark
kitchen. 8l wanted It on the souUt aiJe
DOUGLAS STREET FRONT OF SECOND
of the house. The architect didn't, but it
waa her house and she had her way.
Bhe says that "most kltohens have for
view garbage boxes, and It Isn't any won
der that women hate working In them."
Her kitchens, which opens directly off the
living room, "so that when she has com
pany she can talk and cook at the same
time," is a marvel of convenience.
It haa four south windows, one on the
east side and one on the west side, and
Is as light, sunny and airy as It Is possible
for a kitchen to be. It contains one large
enameled sink with a removable drip board
that eauily can be cleaned and sun dried,
and the whole side Is lined with cupboards
and compartments, some with gloss doors
and some with wooden ones so that all
the mistress has to do is to reach up over
the long working table, or counter as it
might be called, that Is below them and get
what she desires. Then there are several
bins for flour, spice boxes and the like, all
built within reach so that there Is no need
of extra steps. The gas range stands con
veniently close to the work table. There
is an office stool that Mrs. Glasner sits on
when washing dishes or preparing vege
tables, and near the range is a great
"comfy" looking rocking chair to rest In
while the cooking Is progressing. Tho
kitchen fixtures are curved so there are
neither fixtures nor crevasses where dirt
The big screened In porch Is back of the
kitchen and opens from off that room and
also from off the long hall that leads Into
the living room. The Ice box stands be
tween the kitchen and the porch, and from
the porch leads the little rustic bridge
across the ravine that takes one to the
beautiful little octagonal summer house.
Near the kitchen are the steps that leud
Into the basement, where there la a tiny
and convenient laundry with set tubs and
the heater that Is used for keeping thu
water hot, summer and winter, and which
can be used also for boiling the clothes.
The rest of the basement Is yet unfinished,
and should Its owner decide there Is apace
for several rooms down there besides the
billiard room contemplated.
The furnishing of the bouse Is as quaint
as the house Itself, for there are in it
many things that collectors delight In own
ing. In the bedroom Is an old four-poster
mahogany bed, and an old-Iaihoned ma
hogany bureau to match. In the sewing
room Is another old bureau with glass
knobs which was rescued by Mrs. Glasner
from several coats of yellow paint. She
thus found the mahogany underneath.
In the large living room are good old
fashioned rockers and easy chairs, a spin
ning wheel and a flax wheel, both like the
other pieces heirlooms. There also Is an
old-lashioned mahogany table or two and
a pair of andirons that give Just the right
touch to the fireplace, and old-fashioned
candlesticks in abundance. There are no
curtains and heavy portieres to keep out
air and gather dust, and the thorough
cleaning that the rooms receive once a
week at the hands of the laundress who
comes to do the washing and Ironing is
sufficient to keep it Immaculate.
Mrs. Glasner considers her housework
a Joka In her new home, and frankly says
she would not change places with anyone,
and unselflshly desires that other women
be told of the attraction of housekeeping
in her way. She Is sorry for the women
dependent on servants, while every woman
who enters this beautiful, Ideal home longs
most ardently to change places with Its
mistress, and men who view It sigh re
gretfully and aay: "How I'd like to live
in a real home like this, but ours is such
a big uncomfortable place."
It may be Interesting to add that the
cost of the building of the house was
modi-rate, and the daily household ex
penses and maintaining of the home are,
as the mistress expresses It, "so small as
to seem almost absurd." Chicago Tribune.

The commissioners are considering a con

one side and County Auditor Smith on the
other over tha printing of the last primary
ballots. Tho Omaha Printing company
chnrged $1,994 for about 4,0 changes, due,
it is claimed, by the rotation system. The
Roberts company charged $1,870.60 for 2,t!6
changes. Mr. Smith contends It was neces

more than 3t0 changes In order to comply
with tha law and for the other company
to make a still smaller number. Both com

directions of the county clerk under tho
