The new bulldln of the Young Mon's
Christian association will be formally
opened ana dedicated the last wwk In May.
A larga fore of men la now at work fin
ishing up, putting In tha furnltura and
It la going to be a big surprise to the
people of Omaha. The beauty of the build
ing approaches magnificence and Ita utility
and arrangement la almoat Ideal.
As the vlaltor goes Into the main entrance
under the atately sculptured doorway ha
paasee through a vestibule finished In per
fect imitation of PavanoMt marble and
ihen finds hlmaeir In a lobby of magnificent
proportion, tha raftered celling of which
la aupported by columns of Imitation Scag
llola marble. Tha offices are In front and
to tha left. At tha left end will b the
reading room and to tha right tha lobby
will be devoted to social purpoaes. Tha
Boor of tha lobby la terraxio, consisting of
fragments of marble bedded in cement
with pollahed surface. On this floor also
la the spa, a spacloua room finished In
Flemish with blue Delft painting on the
walla. '
The assembly room with the adjoining
lecture hall, separated by rolling partition.
Is on the second floor. This floor also con
tains parlor, committee rooms and the
spacloua boya' rooms, which occupy nearly
the entire east half of the floor. The latter
contain game tables, check room, club
rooms and other quarters for the boys,
with lockers and toilet rooms.
Illnlns; Room Department.
The third floor Is the headquarters of the
dining department. There 1b the apaoioua
kitchen, the main dining room, cafe and
several private dining rooms. The tables
and chalra of the main room will be of
early English style. The walla' of the
main room are handsomely decorated In
tapestry foliage style.
The four private dining rooms are sep
arated only by rolling partitions and can
be thrown Into one so as to accommodate
eighty persons. On this floor are also the
educational rooms, many of them provided
and equipped especially for teaching some
special branch. There Is also a library and
reading room for students.
The upper two floors are the dormitory
floors and there are 102 rooms there. Some
of the rooms are equipped with private
baths. Some of thorn are In suites and
double suites with bath between. There
are two large general bath and toilet
rooms on each of these floors and six show
ers for the use of those occupying tho
dormitories. There will be telephones In
each room communicating with a branch
exchange In the building.
The rooms are finished In plain sawed
oak. The furniture Is of oak and real
mahogany. The magnificence of these
apartments cannot be appreciated without
being seen. The windows ax very large,
the finishing la all of the best, the lights
are elcctrlo. These rooms are being fin
ished up and cleaned and aa soon as the
furniture la Installed and the committee
has decided what rent to ask, they will be
thrown open for occupation.
Gymnasium on First Floor.
The gymnasium and running track, with
auxiliary gymnasium, open oft of the first
floor. These have been In operation for
several weeks.
Down in the basement Is the general bath
room, men's lockers and swimming pool.
This. Is equipped In the most up-to-date
manner. There are many Individual show
ers, private baths, general showers and
other appurtenances which make up an
elegant bath. Then there la the swimming
pool, said to be the finest In the country.
It la so arranged that the water will be
constantly skimmed; that la, when a man
enters the pool the water displaced will
overflow into a gutter running around the
outer edge. This water from the top will
contain most of the dirt and will be car
ried off down drains, thus providing a con
stant skimming. The artesian well water
which will supply the tank la a- clear as
crystal. Secretary Wade has devised tho
system for heating the water and believes
it Is Ideal.
Marvel of Spaciousness.
The new building on the whole Is a mar
vel for spaciousness, convenience and prac
tical arrangement. Everywhere there Is an
air of substantiality and comfort. For ex
ample there are eight drinking fountains
In the halls of the building. In the base
ment Is an Ice box, containing ISO feet of
colled pipe. The ice box holds a ton of toe
and the drinking water circulates through
the coll of pipe on its way to the fountains.
The decorations of the walls and ceilings
throughout the building are daszllng In
their beauty. Most of this Is hand work.
The cafe and dormitories will be In
Charge of Mrs. 8. T. Lowe, who has just
arrived from Cleveland, O., where she has
had charge of one of the largest and best
private hotels. She and Secretary Wade
are making every effort to get the cafe and
the dormitories Into operation at the earli
est possible moment. Meals will be served
at all hours.
Visitors are not being admitted to the
building now, as It Is desired to have every
thing completed, cleaned and in operation
before the building Is thrown open to gen
eral Inspection.

Present Incumbent Claims Qno War
ranto Preceding; 1 the
Proper Method.
The legal controversy over the possession
of the city engineer's office may take an
entirely new turn and the present man
damus suit to compel City Engineer Rose
water to turn over the office to Thomas
Shaw, who claims the office by reason of
the action of the city council, may have
to be dismissed, and a quo warranto action
begun. That this will have to be done Is
the contention of the city engineer's at
torneys, and the question of the proper
procedure was argued before Judge Ken
nedy Friday afternoon..
It is also claimed by Mr. Roeewater'a
lawyers that even If a mandamus suit Is
the proper way to proceed. It will be neces
sary for Shaw to secure an alternative
writ, In order to get the question at Issue
properly before the court. Mo alternative
writ has been Issued In th! case, but. In
stead, an order requiring the city engineer
to show cause why ha should not be re
quired to give up his office. The question
first to be settled Is whether the man
damus cose Is the proper way to proceed
or not, and after that Is decided whether
It is necessary to hav an alternative
writ Issued In any case, the hearing of
the suit on Its merit will be delayed sev
eral days until the preliminary questions
can be settled.
Redaction Lower Than Any Other
City In On or Two Months,
. Bay Nash.
"Electrto llght'rates will be reduced with
in the next thirty or sixty days as low or
lower than In any other city in the coun
try," aald F. A. Nash Friday morning,
when Inquiry was made as to the proposed
reduction In rates.
New schedules are being arranged by em
ployes of the Omaha Electric Light and
Power company, but the work requires
considerable time on account of the com

Sow Look Oat tar Rheamatlsm.
The grip has beer, unusually prevalent
during the past winter, and In many cases
Is likely to be 'ollowed by an attack of
muscular rheumatlam. This 1 the most
eommon variety of that disease and least
dangerous. There Is no swelling of the
Joint and the pain Is not so excruciating
as In acute or Inflammatory rheumatism.
It Is sufficiently severe to disable a man,
however, and every movement increases
the pain. Keep as quiet as possible and ap
ply Chamberlain' Pain Balm freely with
a thorough massage, and you ar certain
to get quick relief.
Sacrifices His Sleep for Seleneo.
A remarkable case of heroic devotion to
scientific study Is that of William Walker
Strong, a rraduate student st Johns Hop
kins university. He is engaged in a study
of the Ionization of the air. and Is work
ing with a large and Intricate apparatus
set up In the basement of the physical
laboratory, from which he Is obliged to
take readings eve-y thirty minutes.
Fcr two months Strong has been sitting
by his apparatus, leaving It only long
enough to eat and return in fearful haste.
Kvea at night the apparatus must be read
and watched. Hence Strong has been tak
ing cat napa beside his apparatus, accom
panied by an alarm clock that wakes hlra
every half hour. Baltimore Sun.

Akraptly th Jadae Break lata
Her Story with Those OsnU
Bti Worts "itlaety
Emma Contee, a weman of color and
aristecratlo mien, knows the way from
Ninth street and Capitol avenue to the city
jail and from there to the county Institu
tion, more familiarly known In her sat a
"the hlU," bettor than the grlztled mariner
knows tha paths of the sea and tbe stars
In the heaven by whloh he guides his craft
8ha knows every bump and every hole In
the street and Just when to brace herself
In the patrol wagon to meet the Jar of the
clumsy vehicle and Friday morning she
was given another lesson.
Among the fixed appointment of the
room of the people' bar, of th bull pen
adjoining and of the cell room "down be
low," ha grown to be the face and figure
of Bmmi Contee, but when th familiar
form passed through th portals and into
th august presence It occasioned sur
prise, for not muoh more than a week had
passed since his honor dispatched her to
the hatch on the hill for a sojourn of ninety
day In company with two ether equally
blessed with color, for having been mixed
up In th fleecing of a granger of bl roll.
Km ma Contee and one of the other had
made application to appeal their cases, but
Judge Crawford would not O. K. her bond,
but he did offer to take her straw bond If
he would promise by all she holds dear
In the burnt district or elsewhere to wipe
herself from the face of the earth immedi
ately, bo far as the people's bar and Omaha
Is concerned, and she gave her word that
her disappearance should be speedy, com
plete and everlasting.
But here she was. She was the same old
figure, wore the same old dress and the
same old smile, and It was plain she hadn't
even gone so far aa South Omaha. But she
was "there with the goods." Not the least
was she disturbed that she was back In
court because she had broken her word of
honor, that most brittle of things In the
world. She could easily relate to the Judtje
how someone had knocked It out of her
hand and It fell to the floor and broko
with a loud crash; how an explosion had
taken place next door and knocked It Into
a thousand pieces before she had had time
to save It, or how the train had struck it
as she was about to carry out Its pur
pose. It would be an easy mntter to give
an excuse. She was good at that and had
saved herself from many a tight place by
being quick with excuses. She'd tell him
any old thing and If one wouldn't work she
rnlght change her plea and try another.
Nothing to It; nothing to
"Ninety days."
From out the stillness behind the bar
where he sat In apparently calm con
templation of the persistent one, whose
presence had become so frequent and op
pressive, the words floated sternly, and she
knew that the Incident had come to an
abrupt end. Drawing her skirts about her
to save the floor as much as she could, she
retraced her steps and. In going, she no
ticed that the threshold had been worn
down one-sixteenth of an Inch since her
last visit She was going back to familiar
scenes and surroundings, where every ob
ject was a well known as her dress.
He admitted hi name was Peter when
Desk Sergeant Patsy Havey- asked him
Thursday night, and also admitted he was
very flip In his remarks, so he waa booked
as Peter Flip, charged with being drunk
and lying on the walk. Patrol Conductor
Fahey had had a hard time waking Mr.
Flip from his sound slumber in the soft
slushy snow he was using for a mattress
and the fllpness of Mr. Flip flew up at
the officer's Interference. However, this
was not made a part of the report and
his honor saw no reason for not granting
the prisoner's plea to be given his freedom,
promising never, never, to do It again.

Saturday's Great Clothing Values
Martin Callahan walked about the street
Thursday night wallowing- In the water and
slush. His feet were cold and there was a
pain In his stomach and nothing else. He
was very hungry. He saw the people
seated at the long counter In a restaurant
on Farnam street getting filled up, and he
longed to be one of them. But he was dead
broke. It was then all the grievances
against the rich passed In review before
hts mind and he determined he was going
to eat whether anyone paid for his meal
or not and three-quarters of an hour later
his appetite was more than appeased with
an inch-thick beefsteak, with all the good
things on the side his mind could conjure
up. Ia the words of the comedian, who
cared for expense when someone else paid
for It?
He glanced with contempt at the slip of
paper giving the price of the repast and
started for tbe door. But Chris, who holds
sway, at th money drawer, reminded him
gently that something had been forgotten.
Callahan lost no time In explaining that
he had no money wltn which to pay, and
Chris In turn lost no time In calling Ser
geant Big-wart, who sent the man to Jail.
The restaurant people declined to appear
against Callahan In police court In the
morning and Judge Crawford sentenced him
to ninety days' imprisonment. 'But he bad
bad on square meal Just the same.

We are developing all manner of new
afflictions along with our progress In the
arts of civilization. The bicycle stoop, th
chauffeur' eye, the strap-hanger's wrist
are disorders well known to the medical
profession which were unknown to th
lower and happier men of a former gen
eration. Another ha been added to th
list of these ailment which He In wait
for th unwary, and this one more ter
rible and devastating than all the rest.
Comparatively few people own automobiles
as yet, and the bicycle ha lost ta olden
fascination since It ha become so cheap.
The telephone ear la so universal as to
rouse no comment whatever, and tunnelltla

through under Mount Washington. Is now
as obsolete as the superstition about th
whit horse and th auburn-haired damsel.
