OMAJIA, March T.-To tho Editor of ths
WMpInf Water Republican. Weeping
Watar, Neb.; Thers appeared in the. "Mis
cellany" column of The Omaha Bee of
March an editorial from your paper which
reflect seriously upon the Omaha grain
market. I feel quite aure that It la not
your Intention to be unjust to thla market
. and I am Impelled by this conviction to set
you right on the subject.
The grain ahlpper of Weeping Water
need not depend upon the vhlm of any
buyer In this market an to the quality or
' weight of his grain. The Omaha Grain ex-
change was organized for the purpose of re
placing Individual Judgment by Impartial,
collective Judgment and. If your grain deal
ers wlU aell their grain to Omaha on
"Omaha term," they will be furnished
with an Inspection certificate and a weight
1 certificate issued by this exchange which
will glva them aolentlflo grading for their
grain and weights aa accurate as any hu-
. man agency can make them.
The exchange spent CO. 000 last year alone
in order to perfect the department of
welghta and Inspection. We have In charge
ef that department a man who la recog
i nlaed In the grain trade aa one of the moat
- competent Judges of grain In the west, Mr.
George B. Powell. Mr. Powell was for fif
teen years chief Inspector at Peoria and
for aix yeara chief clerk to the chief In-
' apector In the great Chicago market. If
any honest difference of opinion arises aa
. to the Inspection made by the track In
spectors, your dealers have the benefit of
'' Mr. Powell'a Judgment upon their grain. If
. they stilt feel that they are not satisfied
with the grade, they can utilise the "ap-
- peals" machinery of this exchange and call
for Inspection by the grain committee,
which la composed of aeven competent, ex-
. perlenced grain men. If any one of these
men Is Interested In the shipment he must
- retire from. the committee, thereby Insuring
your dealers an impartial, collective judo
' motit of a number of experienced men.
The -exchange maintains, and pays for out
.. of Its own funds, a tallyman at every ele
" vator In Omaha, South Omaha and Coun
' ell Bluffs, whose sole business It Is to check
the weighing by consignees of the grain.
" These men are switched about from time to
time In order that they may be kept from
outside Influences such aa might be present
If they, were permitted to remain at one
elevator all the time.
By Inference, you accuse Omaha dealers
of being unreliable and Intimate that they
do not deal honestly with your people. I
. cannot believe that It was . your Inten
tion to take any such position and I beg
leave to call your attention to the fact
that the receipts of grain at Omaha, over
75 per cent of which originated In Ne
braska, have Increased materially every
year the exchange has been In existence.
Last year we reoelyed 45,000,003 bushels
of grain, aa against IS, 000,000 In 1905,
while the nearest market, "down the usual
way, south," decreased nearly 10,900,000
bushels In 1908 under 1905. If tha methods
employed at Omaha were open to serious
. criticism. It la hardly possible that these
results would have been obtained.
Doubtless you are often in Omaha,
either on business or pleasure bent. Ttie
.next time you come here I hope you will
call on the Grain exchange and give' a
half hour or an, hour to personal investi
gation of our methods of Inspection and
weighing. We feel that we. are entltlid
to credit for the high plane upon which
w have placed this service and we would
, like to have the opportunity of convincing
you and. through you, your readers, of
that fact. Toura truly, K. I. M'VANN.

Thalia, goddess of Comedy, stood irreso
lute for a moment, all but ready to
abandon- her position In the circle of tho
Muses; then she waited, and when the
final curtain went down, she straightened
up, and the business of Olyhrpus want on
as though nothing had happened. Lillian
Russell haan't driven any , of the stars
from the firmament by her venture into
comedy unaccompanied by music and the
like. She la more than fair lady who. If
she has not succeeded in stopping the
wheels of time, has at least so managed
It that their revolutions have left but
little outward and visible sign upon her
ample person. About all that la notice
able in thla regard ts a slight tendency
to sedateness, a lack of buoyancy and
playfulnesa, but otherwise she is to all
seeming the Lillian Russell of ever so
many yeara ago, and still a good fellow.
But straight comedy is hardly her forte.
It may be that the piece she Is exploit
ing la in some way to blame for this, for
It Is a hopeless thing with but little to
relieve It from positive dullness. Miss
Russell tugs away at lines that are com
monplace enough, and at times Inane, the
comedy flowing entirely from the situa
tion and never from the conversation.
And the situations as a rule are of such
an ordinary sort that they do not evoke
more than a smile.
Story of the Comedy.
The story tella of a young matron who
haa been considerately widowed by an
elderly plutocrat. She haa Just emerged
from her weeds at the opening of the ac
tion, and announces her Intention of wed
ding a fortune-hunting earl from Merry
England. At the psychological moment the
"papers" appear, and It is shown to her
that if her second husband la not an Amer
ican born ahe will lose her fortune. She
decides that she will wed someone, and be
divorced, and then ahe can wed the earl.
A "genius" with shabby clothes and red
whiskers la induced to wed her. His. opera
proves a success, and he turns out to be
quite a man after all, so they conclude to
live happily together. The complications
are furnished by the persistence of the
attorney in the case, who seeks to deprive
the widow of the wealth devised her that
It may come Into possession of the nephew
of the late amasser of the fortune, whom
he can control, and by the earl, who In
sists that ahe keep the original compact, as
he feels he owes something to his country
and to his creditors. It is handled as deftly
as such material might be, and treated as
a broad farce might be amusing.
Old Friends In Company,
Several of MIbs Russell's company are
endeared to Omahans by reason of former
visits. Mr. Tlden Is a delight as the pot
hunting earl, and Mr. Ormonde, as the
genius who turns out to be a gentleman,
la also very good. The others contribute
each in some way to the progress of events,
and the three acts are rendered with such
expedition aa makea them paas quite pleas
antly. RICH AND HOLDS DOWN JOB
Postman Makes Fortune la .Real Es
tate, but Still Delivers
How to amass a fortune of $300,000 on a
salary of $1,000 a year seems next to the
Impossible, and yet there are several letter
carriers In New York who tramp the
streets, .rain or shine, delivering letters for
Uncle Sam who have that much money. If
not more. Safely Invested. The branch
postofflce known as Station Y, on Third
avenue, near Sixty-eighth street, emptoys
three letter carriers whose total welath
aggregates nearly $500,000.
The men are Martin L, Henry of 1498
Bathgate avenue, the Bronx; William W.
Munroe of 201 East Seventy-second street
and Louis Gates of 1220 Third avenue.
These men, although Independently
wealthy, through extra effort during leisure
hours, still trudge from house to house
daily with mail bag and whistle, content
to accept a salary of $1,000 a year which
Uncle Sam provldea for his postmen.
In every case the fortunes were made
through shrewd Investments In real estate.
In order to save from their salaries tha
amounts they possess each letter carrier
would have been obliged to put aside every
cent of hla pay and labor unceasingly for
from 100 to 200 years.
Martin L. Henry, who Is considered the
richest postman in the world, has a fortune
estimated at from $150,000 to $250,000. He
atarted twenty-four yeara ago aa a letter
carrier with $100. His route for many
yeara has been to Fifth and Madison ave
nues, In the vicinity of Seventy-second
street, and It Was from some of the wealthy
Wall street operators to whom he delivered
mall that he first received his start In
fortune building. Several years ago he
bought lots In the vicinity of Two Hun
dred and Thirty-fifth street for $200 apiece.
They are now worth $1,300 each. He owns
property In other boroughs.
Letter Carrier Munroe, who has dellv
ered letters for nearly twenty years, has
also managed to gather together a com
fortable fortune. According to his fellow
carriers ho will leave the employ of Undo
Sam next September, If not before, to live
on the large farm near Saratoga. N. Y.,
which he recently bought. He Is now
waiting to see If the present congress will
vote a pension to those letter carriers who
have been In the service twenty years
If the law is passed Munroe will wait until
next September, when he will have served
that length of time.
Postman Gates has long been a partner
in real estate deals with Henry, and It is
said that his fortune equals. If not exceeds,
that of his brother letter carrier. All the
wealthy postmen, however, do not work
at Station Y. One of the richest Is "Sam'

der Lincoln, and who has dellevered mall

SWIMMING F0R DEAR LIFE
Slsteen-Y ear-Old Paaseaaer of tke
Larekmont Swam Ashore
with tke News.
Of all the tales told by the survivors
of the Larchmont disaster, none was so
forceful as that of Fred Hlergesell, the
16-year-old eon of Edward H. Hlergesell of
Richmond Hill, Brooklyn, reports the New
York World. This lad, after getting safely
away from the Larchmont, was thrown
Into the water by the rapslilng of the boat
In which he had launched with Ave others,
and of that number he alone reached shore.
Ills youthful vigor and swimming powers
enabled him to make hla way through the
Icy watera to the shores of Block Island.
There he hastened to the nearest place of
refuge, which happened to be the North
Light Station, and thla first knowledge of
the disaster given to tha savers stationed
there brought about the hasty response for
help which waa accorded the victims of the
Young Hlergesell was on board by rea
son of the fact" that he had been visiting
relatives In Bonton, and waa on his way to
Brooklyn. He told his story of the disaster
and Its aftermath In the following boyish
"I had a stateroom near the smokestack,
and had only been In It a short time when
I heard a terrible crash. I thought It waa
right In the room at first, and It gave ma
quite a scare. I rushed out of the door and
heard all the racket, saw the steam alt
around, and knew In a minute that some
thing waa wrong. As It happened and it
was lucky for me, too I hadn't undressed,
and so air I had to do waa to grab up what
few things I had. I heard the people shout
ing for help to be saved, and saw the of
ficers and crew running about. At first
I did not know what I had better do. Fin
ally, however, I got out on deck, and It was
about this time that the boat began to tip
over on Its side.
"I got right Into the crowd that was
pushing about on the deck and tried to
get Into one or two of the boats which
were pushed off. I followed the captain
to one of the boats, but I could not get
Into It, and waa pushed back by the crowd
that waa pulling and hauling near the cap
tain's boat. A couple of men said some
thing about going to the other end of the
boat, so I got right after them, and up at
the end we found a smnll boat that waa
tied to the steamer. I helped them to cut It
away and Just as the five others and myself
had piled Into It the ship gave an extra
shift or lurch, and as It sank Into the water
It sort of sucked us right up to It. It
looked for a minute as though we were
going to be swallowed right up, but the
boat soon righted Itself, so It seemed, and
then, with the rush of the wavea, we lost
sight of everything.
I don't know how long we drifted about.
but that's about all we did for hours. It
seemed. We hadn't any oars, and with the
cold and excitement of the whole thing It
looked bad for a time. We talked as best
we could, and I recall that most of the
others In the boat said they couldn't swim.
Many times the way the waves whirled
about the boat made It look bad for us,
and then Anally the boat did kick Over.
That's the last I saw or heard of my com
panions In the boat. I remember holding
on tq the boat for a minute or so, and then
my hands got so cold that I had to slid
right Into the water. Then my good for
tune In having put on a dry life-preserver
before leaving the ship saved met I am a
good swimmer, and so after I had got over
the first chill of the Icy water, with what
swimming I could do and the help of the
life-preserver, I began to feel that I still
had a chance either to land somewhere
or be picked up. The work of swimming
soon warmed up my body, and after a
time I didn't mind it at all. though, of
course, I felt rather scared and lonesome
there In the deep sea all by myself and
not knowing where I waa
"I think I must have been swimming
about for ten minutes or so; perhaps It was
more, when I felt that I could touch bot
tom. Was I glad? Well, I tell you there
wasn't a happier boy In the world than I
at Juat that minute. I rushed right out of
the water, and you can bet It seemed good
to me to be on land again. I didn't know
where I was. of course, but walked along
until I aaw a light. It was the life-saving
station at the north end of Block Island,
I learned after I had walked In on them.
"It also turned out that I was the first
one to reach land and the flint to give the
warning to the l!fe-save,rs. There Isn't
much more to It, except that they cared
for me, and I have been treated flne since.
I was pretty cold and my hands were about
frozen, but besides that I don't feel very
much used up."
