AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Probable Legal Contest Oyer Recent
Primary Will Come.
DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES OBJECT
t nnrles Johnson Ioe I.tmb Toaasr
Man Draaared by Car One
Curtis Killed on In Ion
Rumors were rife Saturday concerning
the probable contest of the primary elec
tion before the Douglas county court and
It comes from a source which la reliable
that the only reason that a petition has
not been filed to date Is the fact that the
canvassing board has up to the present
time failed to make the proper report of its
finding, both as to the canvassing of the
returns and as to the recount demanded.
The board consists of the mayor, the city
clerk and the treasurer. The city attorney
was Instructed by the board to make up Its
findings In legal form, and he Is said to
have dona this and delivered It as he
thought, to the board. They, In the con
fusion of the last few minutes of the re
CiTdnt loet the document and failed to file
It with the city clerk for approval before
the city council. The mayor said last night
that the report of the sard would be filed
Monday. After that has been done the con
testants may proceed by petition before
the county court within twenty-four hours.
It Is said that the petition Is already drawn
by a prominent legal firm and is sworn out
In the name of certain candidates of the
democratic party who are convinced that
the Irregularities and frauds perpetrated aa
they view them have been sufficient to re
sult In their defeat The petition will prob
ably be filed before Monday night, alleging
fraud and illegality.
In the first Instance the contention will be
made that the city attorney, S. L. Winters,
was wrong in his opinion which permitted
the unregistered to swear In their votes by
offering any one of the valid excuses which
are accounted good on election day, but
which the wording of the present primary
law expressly prohibits. Mr. Winter's opin
ion Is said to have been based on his belief
that this feature of the primary law would
not stand the test of constitutionality.
Further, It will be alleged that Illegal
affidavits were submitted both In their
technical aspect and In their Integrity as
expressing the truth. Further, it will be
alleged that voters were brought In from
outside the limits of South Omaha to vote
at the South Omaha primary, constituting
absolute fraud. Other allegations will show
that more official ballots were found In
the ballot boxes on their return to the
city clerk than were charged to the pre
cinct by the city clerk, or which were
acknowledged by the election boards, whose
duty It was to check carefully tbe num
ber of ballots received. This, ' It Is con
tended, la evidence of the endless chain
ballot In which one or two official ballots
were either forged or stolen and exchanged
In the booth for the balldts handed out
by the clerk. It has been discovered fur
ther that two precincts either lost or de
stroyed the affidavits received from un
registered voters. Some of the affidavits
for removals were unsigned by any of the
Judges and clerks. The most casual glance
at the affidavits will reveal numerous
omissions' of vital Importance. Lists of
voters are being examined and it Is said
many of the addresses given are fictitious.
It Iff reasonable to predict that whoever
the pu-tlea' shall be who stand behind
these petitions and contest the ; election.
they will find strong support in the cltl-
aens who believe In good government at
Charles Johnson Loses Lear.
Charles Johnson waa found last night on
the railroad tracks at Thirtieth and A
trects bleeding and unconscious from being
ground under the car wheels. He had his
right leg badly broken and crushed above
the knee. It Is thought at the South Omaha
hospital, where he was taken, he will lose
the leg, although amputation was not at
tempted ' last night because the man was
suffering too much from shock and loss
of blood. He was a man about 68 years
old and lives on Lamont street, Omahv.
He haa a family and he was living with
them. Dr. John Koutsky attended, him at
Johnson was formerly a paint contractor.
He fell in Denver some years ago and hurt
his head. Since that time he has at times
showed mental defects. He had wandered
away from home during the afternoon and
the Omaha and South Omaha police had
been notified to keep a lookout for him.
He apparently wandered down the tracks
and in his Irresponsible condition got in the
way of a passing train on the Union
Gna Cnrtla Killed on Trick,
Gus Curtis, Thirty-sixth and F streets,
South Omaha, was Instantly killed on the
tracks of the Chicago & Northwestern rail
road within the confines of thj roundhouse
at Thirty-sixth and D streets. He was an
engine wiper and was working nights. One
of the roal engines was coming into the
roundhouse after a trip and It Is thought
Curtis either attempted to board the engine
or that he was busy on the tracks and did
not see It at all. The engine knocked him
down lengthwise of the rail and upon It
and the trucks of the pilot passed over him.
Curtis was a man nearly 60 years old and
has a family. He had been engaged for a
long time as an engine wiper about the
roundhouse. The police examined the case
and notified the coroner, who will arrange
for the Inquest later. ,
Yonnc Man Near Death.
A son of Councilman C. M. Davis of
the Omaha city council, came near death
Friday afternoon In South Omaha by
being dragged under the wheels of a
street car. The boy was delivering a
package In South Omaha and jumped off
the moving car at Twenty-fourth and M
streets. His overcoat caught In the front
door of the car and he was thrown and
dragged half a block at a rapid rate. For
tunately for him his foot on the first
swing landed fairly on the oil box of the
journal of the front truck and his hand
struck the beam of the truck which sup
ports the car and he was able to hold
himself away from the tearing wheels
while his coat held fast In the door. He
screamed with all his might, but neither
conductor or motorman heard htm appar
ently and neither could see him dragging.
A. H. Murdock saw the boy as ha fell
and being half a block down the street he
ran out upon the track and wildly waved
his hat for the motorman to atop. This
he did thinking Mr. Murdock was insane
and came so near hitting him that he
dropped the fender. The boy was found
to be only slightly bruised, but terribly

Some Things You Want to Know f
A California woman who waa called upon
to support herself chose flower-raising as
a means of livelihood, and she has made a
great success with her petunia farm. This
little flower wss well known to our grand
mothers and comes from a plain family,
being connected with the tobacco plant.
Tet this woman has succeeded In bringing
the blossoms up to a perfection which has
created a demand for them. Thousands
upon thousands of blooms, comprising
every variety and color known, fill her
garden. With a tiny camel's hair brush the
pollen of certain flowers Is transferred to
others, and by this means choice strains
are obtained. Choice hybridised petunia
seeds are worth mors than I1O0 an ounce
at wholesale. The work of gathering and
preparing them Is a tedious one. The seeds
have to be selected with the greatest care,
and carefully sifted through a series of
fine garden sieves.
Luther Burbank has fully demonstrated
the perfection to which a flower can be
brought If only sufficient effort Is spent
upon it No one of his experiments shows
this more clearly than his work with the
daisy. This little flower, which Is the
harbinger of spring in many states, was not
very well loved when Luther Burbank was
a bay. But le cared for It and determined
that sometime he would make It a flower
which would demand admiration. When he
grew to manhood he did not forget this
determination. When he started his ex
periment he first sought out suitable flow
ers with which to cross his little daisy.
First he found a Japanese blossom of an
unusual lustrous whiteness. After secur
ing specimens of this plant he found an
other one In England a flower less grace
ful than the American daisy, but larger.
This completed his stock of material and
he set to work.
He first crossed the English daisy with
the American flower by transferring soma
of the pollen from the former to the latter.
The seeds which resulted were carefully
watched, saved and then planted. When
this plant was In bloom the pollen of the
Japanese daisy was transferred to the one
which waa already a combination of the
American and English flowers. This fin
ished Mr. Burbank's labors ao far aa cross
ing the plants was concerned, but still left
considerable to be accomplished. As a re
sult of his work he planted many aeeds
and made his final selections by deciding
between about 100,000 blooms. His present
daisy Is snow white with a long graceful
stem, petals of rare shape and a glowing
yellow center. The creating of thla variety
took eight years.
As a result of flower cultivation and the
demand made by the public for perfect
blooms, a new beauty doctor haa been
created. This Is the flower doctor. Like
his professional relative, the doctor of medi
cine, he requires a case of Instruments in
cluding a pair of dissecting scissors, for
ceps of all shapes, cutting pliers and a host
of brushes. He also requires a spray and
bottles containing gums and numberless
perfumes. Flowers that have petals dis
arranged by wind or careless handling must
have them set aright, and those having Ill
shaped ones must have them removed.
Often an order demands that the flowers
be buds which will not open in the heated
room in which they are to be placed, and
this means that they must all be wired In
visibly. Flowers like chrysanthemums
often require the removal of withered
petals, r.nd sometimes the petals have to
be curled. Jn the growing of white flowers
any colored part has to be removed. Any
plants supposed to be opened, but which
for some reason or other are received
scentless by the florist, are soon made to
smell as sweetly as If freshly picked from
out-of-doors. Potted azeleas, having so
many blooms on a single plant, are Inclined
to wither quickly, and for this reason each
flower is cleverly gummed to its stem, thus
making It laBt considerably longer.
The making of perfume always haa been
closely related to the raising of flowers.
Graese, France, Is one of the moat im
portant centers of this industry. There
every variety of perfume-giving flowers Is
to be found. It takes 20,000 pounds of rose
petals to make a single pound of attar of
roses, valued at $200. For a pound of
neroll, the basis of eau de cologne, 1,000
pounds of the petals of the bitter orange
are needed. The perfume is made by sat
urating lard with the oil of the flower, and
In some cases the blossoms have to be
changed as many aa eighty times before
the mixture Is sufficiently strong. The
flowers most used are violets, jaamlne.
orange blossoms. Jonquils, roses, lavender,
tuberoses and heliotrope.
Ambergris Is used as a basis for nearly
all standard perfumery. This article waa

Fruit Guild la doing much toward cultivat
ing a love of nature among the poor uud

for a number of years, and with little or
no capital has been accomplishing splendid
results. One reason for thla Is becau.to
outside people have aided the cause. Tim
first purpose was to systematize the dis
tribution of the flowers among the sick
and poor, but this has grown Into the larger
field of endeavoring to awaken a love of
nature and of civic Improvement anion n
the people. Tho flowers come from many
voluntary sources, the wild blossoms feath

with those used at the social functions of

Another help has come from the express
companies, who have Issued labels allow

1,000 window boxes have been distributed

scent A grain of musk has been kept ex
posed In a room to which the air lias had
free access for ten years, and during all of
thla time the air, . though ' constantly
changed, waa thoroughly Impregnated with
the odor. The most remarkable point in
connection with this experiment was that
at the end of that time the partlclo of musk
had not sensibly diminished in weight.
Perfumes are claimed to be both in
jurious and beneficial. In several cases
singers and publlo speakers hsve been
troubled with throat affections which they
discovered were caused by violet perfume.
It is claimed that as long aa a flower has
any odor whatever it la Injurious, and that
the violet Is the greatest offender. On the
other hand, a Latin writer haa put on
record 100 perfume remedies for various
diseases, and the violet figures moat
prominently in his list. Lavonder Is sa'd

Another Instance in which nature hns
demonstrated her cleverness la that of the
Spanish bayonet, which la so abundant on
the mountain alopea and foothills of Cali

about fifteen feet, and acquires a diameter
of from six to eight Inches. On a slnrle
one of these stalks as many as 6,000 blos
soms may be seen. These flowers are so
constructed as to make self fertilization
seem Impossible, and Scientists believe that
this service Is performed for the plants by
a small white moth- which makes nocturnal
visits. This little Insect goes to one flower
and accumulates the pollen by rolling it
Into a little ball with Its feet Thus laden
the moth files away to another bloom and
deposits Its load.
