Protective Order of Elks In accordance
with the annual custom of the order paid
, tribute yesterday afternoon to the memory
of their deceased brothers. The services

The Impressive rltuallstlo exercises of the
order which were conducted by Exalted
Ruler Joe' W. Smith and other officers
cf the lodge were Interspersed with an
elaborate and beautiful musical program
of vocal and Instrumental numbers.
The memorial address was delivered by
Brother E. C. Page of Omaha and the
eulogy was pronounced by Brother D. B.
Stuart of this city, both being eloquent
and forceful efforts.
The vocal numbers were by the Elks'
quartet, composed of J. K. Oerke, E. O.
Ames, W. Y. Dixon and C. S. Haver
stock; Mrs. Harry Jennlson, soprano and
Miss Myrtle Moses, contralto, who were
heard In solo and duet. Miss Louise Shad
duck rendered two violin solos.
In his memorial address Brother Page
said m part:
This occasion Is one of more than local
Significance. It Is general throughout
the order over the whole country. More
than a thousand lodges are today making
an observance similar to ours. Some of
these are In the northland, some are In
the southland, and one In the Isles of the
In all or these assemblages our brothers
of the Order of Elks and their friends are
gathered for definite purposes. As much as
the order admires and appreciates the
achievements of some of Its members In
various fields of thought and endeavor,
yet these occasions are not simply In mem
ory of the distinguished, they are pri
marily to honor qualities of heart. They
are an expression of loving memory for
all those who have taken their places in
the order and with snal and loyaity serve
It and so serve humanity. They are a
means of conveying to those outside of the
order an Idea of the sentiments which in
spire It and of the principles upon which
It Is baaed.
There Is a widely accepted view that
sentiments are things impracticable. As
a matter of fact, however, they are among
the most practical forces known. They
are the source of Inspiration and the stay
of endeavor. They give to purpose its
power. They are the secret of achieve
ment. Men do things because they love
something or somebody. Sentiments touch,
move, influence, beautify and enoble. If
the sentiments that move the human heart
and mould It and make the highest and
best of manhood and womanhood were to
die out of the world It wold be tune for
the world Itself to die.
All recognise the beneficial effect upon
individual life and upon society of certain
great fundamental principles of human
conduct and rules of action. Certain of
these are made particularly prominent in
the life of this order.
It emphasises charity through numerous
agencies of Its own. With none of the
pomp or pride of show, Its ministrations
?;o out to the homeless, -weak and friend
ess. Its charities are not confined within
Us own limit, nor within the simply prac
tical. It leallzea lhat there are sufferings
outside the things material. Over the-errors
and weaknesses of those who waver
and stumble as they struggle toward the
goal of belter things It throws the broad
mantle of protecting charity. It does not
expect perfection from any, but would aid
all In the struggle for betterment.
The Order of Elks is a lover of Justice.
It realties that the major part of the
world's most unfortunate controversies
arise because the rights of some are
slighted or Ignored. It is conscious of the
fact that permanent peace and content
ment cannot be brought about until there
la accorded to each that which Is his due.
In Justice and sordid selfishness eliminated
the problems confronting alike individuals
and nations would lose much of their In
tricacy. This fraternity recognises the priceless
value of the principles of brotherly love;
the need of that subtle touch of sympathy
that unites and binds. In every age, In
spite of antagonistic Influences, there have
been at work many agencies bringing about
this result. Homes and schools and
churches have made their mighty con
tributions. To these and others have been
added the influence and power of the great
fraternal orders or the world
Broadens the View.
Adherence to these principles has natur
ally led this order to a broadened view of
many subjects. Its view of patriotism Is
alike loyal and liberal. Its emblems and
Insignia, its teachings and Its practices In-
fiplre patriotism. This, however. Is not
imited by party. It asks no man's poli
tics. It -neither encourages nor permits
i political considerations to effect Its actions.
Its interest as an order, Is not In pry.
but In country. It seeks to arouse alike

tion and our endeavors.
'J tie Order of Elks is liberal In Its relig
ious attitude. It seeks to dictate no man s
religion and It questions no man s creed.
It realises that the prime need of the
world is to think the right and to do the
right. It is sensible of the tact that one
n an may do this the mora effectively along
tne Hue of a creed that is dear to him, an
other most effectively along the lines of a
vanily different creed, equally dear to such
other, wlille still a third may reach the
same result without the aid of either. In
short, the order makes upon its membership
no religious requiiement except a recogni
tion of and belief In that supreme agency
which, through the tireless centuries makes
for righiousness. It leaves each religious
organisation of the world, to pursue its
work undisturbed, and by Its own effort.
In turn, the order does Its work by the
method It selects, each Its own agency In
the work for the uplift of humanity.
The Order of Elks Is emphatically pledged
to the protection of the home and all of
life's tenderest relations. It la an advocate
of rational enjoyment and an enemy of ex
cess. It believes In making the world,
through congenial oompantonshlp and
hearty enjoyment, and always with dua re
gard to the feelings of others, brighter and
Above all. It seeks to draw men together,
to bring them Into sympathetlo touch with
one another, to mak- In te real sens of
the word, brothers of them. This work in
its Influence upon the world Is as neces

Inspection of Dairy Cattle.
Councilman Younkerman Is expected to
bring up at the regular monthly session of
the city council tonight the matter of an
ordinance requiring the regular Inspection
of, dairy cattle in the city. A similar ordi
nance Mas been passed by the city council
of Marrhalltown, and the necessity for
some such measure, It Is contended, exists
"I think this will be the only way to In
sure safety for the public" said Mr.
Younkerman. "I shall consult the city so

owns a cow, whether he or she peddles
milk or not, to have his cows or cows reg

ARCHIVES YET INCOMPLETE
Much Hard Work Ahead of Those in

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES, la., Dec. 7. (Special.)
The report of the archives department of
the state of Iowa Just made, Indicates that
this department has before it several
years of hard labor before the records of
the state are all properly classified and
cared for. Four years ago a start was
made In a small way to have the state
papers taken out of musty pigeon holes
and arranged so that they may be seen.
The work done, however, proves to have
bean labor wasted. Two years ago a new
commission was organised along strictly
business lines and a force of competent
clerks placed In charge. J. F. Kelly, mem
ber of the legislature from Polk county,
was placed In actual charge of the work.
Since then the department has handled
over t70,000 pieces of matter, all state pa
pers or records, running back to territorial
days, mainly from the office of the gov
ernor and that of the secretary of state.
These old documents are being cleaned
and placed in flat cases and filed in exten
sive steel cabinets, and so classified that
any paper may be found very quickly.
Sometimes papers are handled several
times before they reach their destination.
T,he report of the commission shows that
the work has only fairly been commenced
and that It will take several years to
complete the same. It Is probable that the
legislature will make an additional appro
priation to enlarge the commission and
have the Work done as quickly as pos
sible. No effort had ever before been made
to have the state papers placed where they
would be permanently cared for.
Don't Use the Denf School.
Some time ago members of the State
Board of Control made investigation to
find why It was that the attendance at
the state school for the deaf in Council
Bluffs has smaller attendance than It
had years before. The small attendance
at the school makes It very difficult for
the board to run the institution on the
allowance of the atate and maintain the
high efficiency which has long character
ized the school. It was found that the at
tendance at the blind school at Vinton
Is also not growing though it Is a very
efficient school. The belief is that there
la a general feeling over the atate that
these two schools are classified with the
charitable Institutions of the state and for
this reason there Is repugnance to attend
ing them. One remedy has been suggested
and that Is to have these sohools taken
from the Board of Control and placed un
der the general board of control for the
educational institutions whenever it Is
created, and thus have them classed as
strictly educational institutions. Another
Is to make attendance at these schools
compulsory, though this will be opposed
by some. The attention of the legislature
is to be called to the situation.
Tronble Over a State Contract.
The trustees of the state college at
Ames are having some trouble over the
completion of the new agricultural hall.
The contract was let to Efchleuter of Chi
cago, who started the work, and later
failed. The surety company, which was
on his bond, undertook the completion of
the contract. Now it is found that he
surety company is unsulted to this work
and its demands are such that the state
can hardly afford to comply. The work Is
going on at the college, but very slowly.
State Fair Management.
The annual meeting of the Iowa farmers'
Institute la to be held in Des Moines this
week. The delegates come tfrom county
fairs and farmers' Institutes and it elects
the directors of the Department of Agricul
ture, who conduct the state fairs and have
charge of the year book and other matters.
It Is expected there will be no change in
the membership of the board, as in the
last few years the state fairs have had
such phenomenal success that everyone
desires the management to continue with
out change. President Cameron has had
the office two terms and does not care for
It further, but he has been connected with
the fair management much longer now
than any other person and there is general
desire he continue at the head several
years. Secretary John C. Simpson will be
re-elected without question. Ex-Governor
Packard, who Is on the board, contemplates
going to California for the remainder of
the winter, but he wilt retain his residence
In Iowa' and will be retained on the board.
The board will ask the legislature for lib
Tax Revision Activity,
The annual meeting of the State Tax
Revision association, which will be held
In Des Moines the coming week, will make
strong recommendation to the state legit
lators to make very great changes in tL
law as to assessment and taxation. The
commission desires virtually to have all
moneys and credits exempt from taxation.
It Is proposed that In some way mortgages
be taxed and this only when recorded.
The general tax laws of the state need
much revision and the association will con
sider all phases of the subject.

MEETINGS FOR WORKINGMEN
Feature of tho Great Religions Gathering-
Bring Held In
PHILADELPHIA, Dec 7. Meetings for
worklngmen, students and young men of
the varloua social organizations in the
churches held 1 hers ' yesterday under the
direction of the Federal Council of the
Churches of Christ In America.
More than 1,000 union men attended the
working-men's' meeting, which was pre
sided over by Dennis Hayes, fifth vies
president of the American Federation of
Mr. Hayes, In discussing "the Church
and Home Industry," said the meeting
marked an epoch in the history of the
church and organised labor. The resolution
on labor adopted by the federal council,
the speaker said, was suoh as to make
him almost conclude it emanated from
aome labor committee. Had laboring men
been told a year ago that such a resolution
had been adopted by a committee of mln
latere, the speaker said, he doubted
whether they would have believed It. He
declared the church waa waking up to
the needa of the laboring men, who In
turn ahould ahow their appreciation by
heeding the church's Influence in their or
ganizations, ha added ' that the majority
of trade unionists were church members.
(Rev. Charles Stelsle, superintendent of
the department of church and labor of the
Presbyterian church, said the first move'
ment for world reform was toward rellgl
oua democracy; the next toward political
democracy and the present movement to
ward Industrial democracy.
"Some day," he aald, "war will cease,
but it will not be because of peace con
ferences, but when organised workmen de
clare they will no longer shoot down fel
low workers In order to satisfy the avarice
of their rulers."
He declared that fifty years from now
people will look back and laugh at the
things advocated in behalf of labor at the
last convention of the American Federa
tion of Labor. It is not the duty of the
church, he said, to adopt an economic sys
tem, but to uplift the Individual, because
there must be the Ideal man before there
can be the Ideal system. The adoption of
the resolution on labor by the federation
council, he added, did not mean that the
church had suddenly been converted to the
cause of tabor, but meant rather that It
waa the first time the church, aa a body,
bad an opportunity to express Itself on

CONNELL PLAN TARES MONEY
Inspection System for Schools Op
posed by Some Board Members.
ONLY BECAUSE OF SMALL FUNDS
Cltv Health Commissioner Proposes
Appointment of Physicians to
Maintain Watch Over All
"Had the board more money than It knew
what to do with,' this medical inspection of
the children attending the public schools
might be a good thing, but the board has
been spending too much money, it must
curtail and It certainly can, not take on
this added expenso of medical Inspection.
Anyway, if the board once started it, where
would it end?"
Alfred C. Kennedy, member of the Board
of Education, in this way answers Dr.
Ralph W. Connell, city commissioner of
health, who has asked the board to appoint
eleven medical inspectors at a salary of
tSO a month each to ascertain and superin
tend the health of the children In the
thirty-four public schools of Omaha
James C. Lindsay, another member of the
board, expresses himself the same way,
and from the way the board members view
the proposition at this time it does'' not ap
pear probable that the recommendation of
the health commissioner will receive faujtr
Proposition of Connell's.
The health commissioner wrote the board
about medical inspection in the schools
some time ago, but no action being taken
he has sent another communication to that
body, the latter to come up for discussion
tonight. Thla last letter of Dr. Connell's
Is as follows:
OMAHA, Pec. 4. To the Honorable Board
of Education: Gentlemen Something over
a year ago I addressed a communication
to your honorable body, auggesttng you
iaae up tne question or medical inspection
In the schools. I understand this com
munication waa referred to a committee.
where It has been slumbering up to the
present time. 1 aesire to request that you
at tease taice up mis question and investi
gate it aa to Ita merits, which, if you do, I
feel confident that you will realize the
Importance ami the necesnlty of having a
medical Inspection of the children attend
ing school. I feel confident thut any money
spent along these lines will repay the tax
payers many times more than any money
that Is spent by your honoraole body In the
maintenance of the schools in any ether
way. Mpdlnnl lnsnctlon rf schools has
passed all the experimental stages. Wherever
It has been adopted It has yond of incal
culable benefit. Tho beneficial results ob
tained have been far greater tliuu the
anticipation of Its most ardent supporter.
In my other communication I think 1
suggested that you cull In twelve cr fifteen
of the leading physicians of Omaha and
get their advice and Judgment as to the
advlsuhillty of the board adopting a system
of medical inspection.
Trusting this communication will meet a
little better fate than my last communica
tion on this subject, and that you will at
leaat appoint a time for the cniulderatlon
cf this matter, where the evidence can be
submitted, why it should bo adopted, I re
main moat respectfully yours,
R. W. CONNELU
Commissioner of Health.
Dr. Connell looked Into the method of
health Inspection in Chicago during his
recent visit there and found that the In
spection there has provided a way to cope
with epidemics and has brought many
children under treatment who were suffer
ing from diseases of which the parents
were ignorant, the removal of which has
aided In their mental efficiency. The sys
tem has reached Ha greatest efficiency in
Los Angeles, where the results were so
beneficial that smaller cities nearby adopted
the plan, the Inference being that the
matter of expense was far outweighed by
the benefit derived.
"The cost of the service would be but a
bagatelle compared with the vast total that
now accrues to the parenta of Omaha from
medical expense needlessly entailed from
lack of proper knowledge and early regu

"and I am prepared to back up my as
sertion with statistics.
"Omaha taxpayers would save money
many times over, if a system of medical
Inspection of the schools were established.
If the work were done as it should be,
including both the public and parochial
schools, the annual bill would be not to
exceed 18,000. The saving In physician's
bills to the parents of school children, the
saving in suffering by the pupils and ths
resultant good that would come to many
children who are deficient in their studies
from purely physical causes ought to com
mend Jhe plan and surely ought to be of
sufficient Importance to cause ths school
board to give the matter at least a hear

When a Blessing
Comes in Disguise
Advancing prices of life's necessities are making
many men debate seriously this Autumn the question
of ready-to-wear clothes versus the custom tailor.
No household can well economize on food, or
rent, or liht, tr fuel, without hardship. But a man
can cut off this tailor luxury not only without hardship
to himself, but in very many instances with positive
benefit to nis appearance and peace.
Stein-Bloch clothes are respected among clothing
dealers as the representative ready-to-wear clothes
the clothes that give them a "leading" line, that fit
properly and that have style.
They are made individually by tailors who have
the touch of experience and the.conscious superiority
of the specialist held together by a great organization.
By wearing them you are giving yourself a
luxury that your tailor never found for you.

The headquarters of L. T. Cooper, the

of many Americana are degenerate, has
presented a scene of unusual activity
for ths past few days.
Cooper with his assistants Is meeting
the public at present in New York. Ths
success he has had In other cities seems
to have followed him here, for an aston

have this theory and medicines explained
Thursday afternoon when Interviewed,
Cooper aald: "I am often asked If my
medicine is good for kidney trouble, or
liver complaint, or rheumatism, cr a
dozen other diseases too numerous to
mention. These are hard questions to
answer. Frankly, my treatment Is for
the stomach, and for the stomach alone,
but If the function of digestion Is being
prsperly performed very few people can
"The stomach Is ths seat of life. The
entire system depends npon Its action.
Why are there so many half sick people
today? It Is because the stomach of a
man or woman who leads a ahut-up life
day after day, taking little or no exer
cise In the fresh air cannot digest the
amount of food that la forced upon it.
It gradually grows weaker under the.e
clrcumstanoas, and nervousness, kidney
trouble, rheumatism, etc., is the result.
"I am successful with my treatment
because the medicine cleans out the food
tracts that have become clogged, gets
the dlgeatlvo organs regulated and gives
nature a cbanoa. Give nature a chance,
that's the secret of health.

PARIS, Dec. 7. President Castro ot

suspected that Castro would debark at
Santander, Spain, and because his physical
condition may be such that humanitarian
motives might render Immediate care at a

at Bordeaux and his Illness not be serious,
the cabinet has determined that some signal
redress must be exacted from the Vene

Insists Scientist Should Admit His
Error on Tuberculosis
NEW TORK, Dec. 7. The contention of
Dr. Koch, that tuberculosis cannot be com
municated to human beings by cows affected
with the disease, was attacked tonight
by Nathan Straus at a meeting of the
Judeans, a Jewish organization. Mr.
Straus declared that he had written to
Dr. Koch, calling upon him to recede from
the position he had taken, but that the
German scientist had not replied.
"I believe," said Mr. Straus, "that when
a man has been proven to be In the wrong
he should acknowledge the fact. This
Dr. Koch would not do and accordingly
he left here a discredited man."
Northern Minnesota. I had two guides
who had spent their lives in the woods
trapping, hunting and fishing. When
night came these men would eat a frying
pan full of bacon, pouring the grease
over great hunks of a soggy sort of
bread. The sight of these slabs of bacon
would sicken most New Yorkers, but
these men munched it down with a relish
and then rolled up In a blanket and
slert like logs. They never knew they
had a stomach, so perfectly did the gas
trio Juices Juices perform their funotlon.
I asked them if they were ever sick. They
both laughed at the Idea 'Never hkd a
minute's sickness,' they said.
"Modern conditions make It Impossible
for people to live as these men live, but
if they get their digestion In shape there
will be mighty little rheumatism or kid

believe In taking medicine unless Jt Is
necessary, but If a man or woman Is suf
