"There will be 1.000 to 6.000 esses of diph
theria in Omaha; and we will have a dis
astrous epidemic on our hands unless we
take very rigorous precautions," said
Health Commissioner Connell. "We took
fifty-six cases from the Kellom school last
week, and we have taken eleven cases
from the Saundera school for examination.
'Physicians, with a few notable excep
tions, are not co-operating with this de
partment as they should. For Instance,
after an examination of a child, when
called by the parents, I should think it Is
not the proper thing to assure the parents
there Is no danger Just because there are
few constitutional symptoms and the child
does not appear sick. This Is for the
reason that no doctor can diagnose dlph
therla. Indications may be wrong or may
be right and to say there la not diphtheria
existing la a mistake easily made. But the
culture tube never makes a mistake. Bo
physicians should reserve their Judgment
until they have taken a culture tube.
KxUtlaa- Condition 1 Serious.
In spite of Impressions to the concrary,
this department haa nsvsr established
quarantine until a culture tube showed
the presence of diphtheria. The existing
condition Is mighty serious as to numbei
of children involved, but It not so serlou
at present as to tho character of Infection.
But it must be born in mind by every
body that this nasal diphtheria Is exact!)
the same thing as the disease that kills
in forty-eight hours; that is, it can de
velop Into the worst form of the disease
If not stamped out in time. It is very hard
to make parents realise this, when the
child is not so sick as to be noticeable,
and they wonder why we send the young
ones home from school; but they should
not be allowed to attend while the danger
of Infection exists. Diphtheietlc Infection
attacks any membrane, and while In the
nasal form there is not the same chance
for absorption Into the system as In the
pharynx. It can and will develop Just as
malignantly if neglected. . Constitutional
symptoms are not as pronounced In Uie
nasal form as In the other, but the two
are Identical in their nature."
Turning to a pigeon hole, the health
commlaaiuner produced eleven reports of
diphtheria cases from Omaha physicians
that came into hta office Tuesday and
Wednesday. It was then that be requested

said Dr. Connell, "and The Bee haa

this country that amounts to anything."

The chase began at the Omaha General

when Mrs. L. Steinberg of Tenth and Har

a window, down on a shed and out into

The adventure pleased the patient greatly
She was content to return.
Both General Manager Sturgess and Sec

press on the people the importance of this
work. l .
"Beef shortage Is a graver problem than
people realize," says Mr. Sturgess. "It
will take a systematic course of education
to solve the problem. Not only Is it neces
sary to increase and Improve the breeds
of cattle, but It is equally as important.
If not more so. to teach the people who
use meat, how to buy it and how to use
It. We waste too much of a beef. We
know nothing but two grades, the loin
and ribs. Every part of the beef Is good
and should be used and must be used If
this problem Is ever solved. And we pro
pose to set in motion a system of educa
tion that will sweep over this country and
end In a tidal wave of enlightenment and
the ultimate solution of the problem, which
today Is really menacing." .
Campaign of Education.
Along these Identical lines Mr. Johnson,
In his letter to Mr. Sturgess, says:
'Apparently the country . Is confronted
by a shortage of beef."
The object of the Beef Produc
err association Is to conduct a campaign
of education to encourage breeding and
feeding of cattle. If the people are fam
iliar with the situation It must centalnly
result In putting a stop to the indiscrimi
nate slaughtering of calves and spaying of
heifers. Here In the west cows are already
advancing very rapidly and I would not
be surprised If next spring cows are not
worth as much as steers.
I believe the threatened shortage
is much more serious than appears on the
surface at the present time.
We are arranging as part of our cam
palgn to inaugurate some publicity work to
educate the beef customer. You know
that the average American labors under
the idea that all there Is fit to eat on a
beef carcass Is the loin and ribs. We are
interesting the domestic science schools of
the country in devising recipes, for cooking
and preparing the cheaper uts of the beef,
The prices of loins and ribs is advancing
so steadily that unless something of this
kind Is done the large majority of the
people will have to stop eating meat oon."
THE RELIABLE STORE
"Can be depended upon" Is an expression
we all like to hear, and when It Is used in
connection with Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy It means
that It never falls to cure diarrhoea, dys
entery or bowel complaints. It is pleasant
to take and equally valuable for children
and adults. Sold by all druggists.

People Who Are Obstructing Thor

City Engineer Craig is going to reclaim
the streets of Omaha Tor the puouc, so
far as possible.
There are possibly seventy-five to 100
cases that I know of where fences, houses,
sidewalks, gardens and other obstructions
have been found In the streets," says the
engineer. "We have sferved notices on
aliqut all of the obstructionists that they
must get out of the streets and the city
legal department is co-operating with us
In the effort to reclaim the streets.
"In the paved street area, for instance.
the roadways have been narrowed, but
that doesn't mean that the width of the
street has been reduced. In many cases,
however, we find that the sidewalk has
been pushed out, or new walks laid fur
ther out than they ought to be. Next, the
fence is moved out to the walk and a
claim to possession Is set up. In some
cases squatters have gone In and built
shacks right In the middle of the street,
or have fenced in the highway and where
this was done twenty or more years ago
