Historical Batlrtl" In City of Mex
ico Saffers from Earth,
It It sad news that the earthquake shocks
In Mexico have rendered the great cathe
dral. as one account says, "practically a
mass of ruins." In an architectural way
this building constituted the chief glory of
Mexico's capital. To command a bird's
eye view of the City of Mexico It has hem
customary for tourists to begin their ob
servations at the Plaza Mayor, the great
central square, by ascending the tower of
the cathedral, whence lay spread out In
splendidly clear panornma the valley, en
circled by an Impressive framework of
mountains. As rem In the rarifled atmos
phere It was a m'ghty qanvas In worthy tan
ting. This lias been the largest cathedral
of North America, and one of the grandest
buildings to be cen anywhere, best me
morial of tjie ancient days of Roman Cath
olic power In Mexico. The edifice, begun
In 1573. was nearly a hundred years In
process of erection, being completed In lt!7
at a L-ost of Utile lees than $!,000,OU), and
Its symmetrical and reposeful architecture
was after the best plans Spain could offer.
The cathedral Is located on the north side
of the city's chief square. Is of the form of
the cross. .4. feet long. 300 feet wide, and
175 feet high at th central dome, and Its
massive twin towers rose to an altitude of
200 feet. Solemn was the vast Interior ef
fect, though the place of worship had been
despoiled of much of old-time splendid In
terior ornamentation. The high altar was
at one time the richest In the world, with
Irs candlestick of gold that one man could
not lift, and golden chalices and pyxes
ludded with precious stones, and the
goldeu cenrera. crocses and statues that
were many cf them plundered In the long
period of Mexico s demoralization. There
are five naves, six altars and fourteen
chapels, where rest the bones of some of
the departed viceroys and great men of the
country. There were ancient paintings on

AfBumptlon, ornamented with diamonds,
said to have been valued at over $1,000,000.
That the place was rich In history and
haunted by memories the most varied, goes
without saying, and must be emphasized
by the fact that this building, which was
begun S3 years ago, occupied the site of
the Aztec teocalll, or temple of sacrifice, up
whose steps Montezuma led Cortez, and,
taking him by the hand, pointed out the
beauties of the city that the Spaniard was

Where Men Are Wooed.
Once upon a time, many, many years ago,
when men and maids used to carry on
their courtships in a manner far different
from that which obtains today, a bashful
suitor entered the town of Kcausslne In
Belgium. At a loss for words, he planted
In the darkness of the night of April 30 a
white birch tree before the doorway of the
house of his beloved ont, in order that It
might plead the purity of the cause to
which the fluttering heart, draining him of
equanimity, prevented him from doing ver-
bal justice. The next morning when the
damsel arose and found the tree, she knew,
by love's unerring Instinct, who had placed
it there and sent to the bashful youth an
Invitation to call. The lad sought out the
lass, was welcomed, entertained and en
couraged. A "happily ever after" ending
followed. Since that day the plan adoptod
by the timorous lover has become a custom
in KcauHHlneu, and suitors both bold and
bashful have eime employed it.
In the last four years, however, there has
evolved from this charming custom a grand
fete, in which all of the eligible men from
towns for miles around Kcaussines have
gathered at the quaint lielgian village and
taken unto themselves wives from the
wards of the municipality. The conveni-
. ences of the occasion are beyond computa
tion for those of the young-men with cour
age enough to propose marriage, but the
hesitating have often come away wifeless
and sad. victims of their own embarrass
ment. To better the lot of these would-be
benedict and give them a chance with their
more fortunate brethren, a new rule in the
matrimonial game was agreed on this year,
and when April 30 came, the blushing maid
ens of Kcausalne were Invited to come to
Long Police Service
(Continued from Page One.)
prised and puzzled and was as innocent
as a new-born babe. "What's the mat
ter?" he asked Whelan. "Open the door
and come on in, nobody is going to hit
you." But Whelan refused to touch the
door again and It required considerable
diplomacy to bring him to understand the
humorous side of the affair.
Another time Whelnn hd a bad cold
and went Into the cell room to soak his
feet In a tub of hot water. Some myster
ious person, let us not say it was cither of
the arch conspirators already mentioned,
threw some alcohol through the bars and
Into Whelan's face. It stung his eyes and
Whelan believed that one of the prisoners
had sought vengeance on him by throwing
vitriol In his face. He sent up a call for
help, which brought every one in the sta
tion to the rescue, and when vitriol was
mentioned the police surgeon, at that time
Ir. Claudius Dlbbern, was brought oil the
run to save the officer's eyes, it possible.
When Uie excitement subsided and it was
found that there was do acid and that
Whtlan was not injured, the latter kicked
over the tub of water In disgust and left
the station.
Another story they tell on Whelan la the
adventure of the "little red bouse," and
this became a phrase around the station
which Whelan heard morning, noon arid
nlgnl. Tbe other actor In the miniature
comedy was one "Sleepy" Hewitt, of much
latter-day fame a an adversary of the
game wardens who guard Cut-Off lake
from seiners. The sleepy one had been
arrested on a charge of stealing some car
penter tools, this as far back as 1&S4. Sleepy
told the Judge that If he would send him
out with an officer he would take' him
to where the tools were hidden. Whelan
was court officer and was sent on the
chase. After , the got started Hewitt told
Whelan that he had sold the tools to a
man who lived In a little red house and for
long hours the two walked looking for such
a place, which afterward proved to be a
product of Sleepy's fertile Imagination.
Finally, near sundown, Sleepy, who all the
lime was looking for a chance to escape,
caught Whelan In an unguarded moment
and made a run for It, getting away.
Whelan returned and told of the trip and
afterward the "little red house" became a
much used expression when he was around
the station.
In the old days when the police station
was located at Sixteenth and Farnam
Whelan played fit. practlcul Joke which gave
him a good scare A southern darkey, who
had been arrested on some minor charge,
served his time there and liked the place
so well that he stayed and paid for hi
board by running errands and working
aiound the building. In the afternoon he
would get a chair In a shady place and go
to sleep. This was an opportunity too good
to be mlhsed by the practical Jokers who
have always abounded around fhe station
and it was an oft-day when something did
did not lappen to the negro. A favorite
trick was to fill a sack with water and
drop It on him from an upstairs window.
One day Whelan got hold of a cement tack
which he filled with water and proceeded
to drop on the sleeping darkey. He over
looked the fact, however, that the sack was
practically waterproof and would not break
as the others had done. He dropped It
from a third-story window and it caught
the darkey on the back of the head and
neck. It knocked him out and for a little
while It was thought he was dead. It Is
told of Whelan that he was busier Just
then fixing an alibi than he was ever seen
to be before or since. The negro son re
covered and was none the worse for the
Such stories might be 'written endlessly,
but they all show the same things In re
gard to the character of the man. Fearless,
kindly and with a love for a Joke and-m
good word for everyone. Sergeant Michael
Whelan will long be remembered by the
Omaha policy.
When he was placed on the retired list
and his pension allowed him the Board of
Fire and 1'ollce Commissioners passed a
lesolutlon thanking him for his long years
of faithful and efficient service and wish
ing him a long life in which to enjoy the
retirement he so well earned, and every In Omaha who knows him wishes the
same thing a long life of ease and freedom
from care and worry.
Mr. Whelan never married, but he was
frugal and has accumulated from his pay
enough property to provide him an income
sufficient, even without his pension, to re
lieve him from any worry as to a com
fortable existence for the remainder of his
A few days after his retirement he left
for Excelsior Springs for a recreation trip
and proposes to take things easy and enjoy
himself from this day forth.
Officer Dennis J. Hyan, who was placed
on the retired list of the Omaha police at
the same time as Officer Whelan, went on
the force July 28, IKS. He served con
tinuously from that date until the first
of the current month. He Is now 67 years
of ago with a wife and two daughters.
During his serylce Officer Ityan never rose
above the tank of patrolman, but he was
one of the best men on the force and wis
as reliable as any officer that has ever
seen service in this city.
Chief lionohue says Officer Ryan was
one of the best men he ever saw in police
service. When sent out to make an arrest
he was fearless of any danger that might
be nitaiUJ In the performance of his duty.
He was called before the police board to
answer charges t.f misconduct or neglect
of duty but once or twice during his twenty
years on the force. Nearly all his years
he had an "Inside" beat and was for sev
eral years detailed to the "tenderloin" dis
trict. During his last year on the force
he was turnkey at the city Jail,

fldence of the entire people. The two
bank buildings are among the very best In
northern Nebraska. The First National
Is presided over by Theo. C. Koch, presi
dent, and H. C. Denkmann, cashier, and
The Fullerton Nation bank by Martin I.
Brower, president, and W. P. Hatten,
cashier. These banks have a combined de
posit of $414,000.
Fullerton has a population of 2,Oo0 peo
ple. Most of the business men own their
property and have ample capital for busi
ness purposes. This Is the center of trade
for a Inrge territory and It has a trade
out of all proportion to the size of the
city. Generally the circle of trade from
the country reaches out six to etght miles,
but Fullerlon draws trade from ten miles
on the north, ten miles to the east, .or
eleven miles south and about twenty miles
to the west. This means that about 900
families recognize this city as their trad
ing point, and as the average family spends
about $01 per year, It is plain that about
$;00,000 finds Its way to this city from
these farms annually.
With Hie modern Chautauqua Idea travel
ing westward, Fullerton was among the
first of the smaller cities in the state to
establish one. The beautiful scenery sur
rounding the city has a state-wide repu
tation and the Chautauqua grounds nest
ling at the foot of the famous "lever's

started In 1SW under the name of "The

seen it develop from a small gathering at
the foot of "Lover's Leap" into a large,
modern assembly, to which thousands of
visitors come annually to camp amidst thn
beautiful scenery and enjoy the splendid
programs. Tbe Chautauqua Is managed by
a board of five directors, who are men of
Influence and have the best Interests of the
assembly at heart. The park in which the
Chautauqua la held comprises about sixty
acres of 'natural oak and ash timber, sur
rounded by lofty bills, with the Cedar river
running near.
