work!. If the people of Omaha want a sane
Fourth of July, toy pistols and K'.ant fire
crackers should be done away with, accord
ing; to the opinions of Home of the city's
leading physicians. Pome are opposed to
firework of any kind, but the general opin

attention are toy pistols and giant flre
c rack era, from the ue of which the great
number of cisea of lockjaw develop.
Prompt attention to Injuries when re

lessening the evil connected with the cele

anti-tetanus serum is advised a a pre

P. Condon, "and I know that If firecrack
tra and all other kinds of fireworks were
taken away from me when I was a kid I
would have fell that I was being deprived
of a great deal of pleasure.
"I would limit the size of the firecracker
t be u.cd, but I can see no reason why
the f mailer firecrackers should not be used.
Of course, there will be some accidents,
but there are accidents connected with
everything, and because an occasional case
of tetanus develops I do not think that
there Is any Justification for doing away
Toy Pistol Tabooed.
"The dangerous caniion cracker and toy
pistol should be eliminated," said Dr.
Charles Rosewater. "but I can see no rea
son for doing away with the smaller fire
crackers. The sanest way to observe a
ane Fourth is to take care of Injuries
promptly. I believe that the people should
be Instructed to take Immediate action

"The first thing to do la to call a com

wounds they should be washed Immediately
and kept open. The up-to-date physician
knows that such wounds should not be

"Before' this method was pursued. In Chi

from lockjaw, while during the last two
years since the Introduction of anti-tetanus
only three deaths have resulted. It should
be used In time, as It Is not a cure, but a
preventive of the dreaded disease.
"With regard to the sane Fourth of July
proposition," said Dr. A, K. Detweller, "I
would say, do away with the greatest of
all evils connected with such celebrations
by abolishing the toy pistol. These are used
by youngsters who never ought to be al
lowed to handle them and are the cause
of more lockjaw than all the other flre
worka combined. Giant crackera also should
be prohibited, but there Is no use of making
a fuea over the small firecrackers."
"If a sane Fourth," said Dr. Frank

fireworks, I would say that I am heartily
to favor of a sane Fourth. The thlag of

President of Water Company Writes
to the Water Board Another
i President Woodbury of the Water com
pany has again written to the Omaha water
board, suggesting a way In which the new
main from the pumping station at Florence
to Omaha may be laid. The letter, which
was delivered to the water board In Omaha
. "NEW YORK. May 4, 1910-To the Water
.Board of the City of Omaha Gentlemen:
In common with the Intelligent citlxens of
Omaha, the Omaha. Water company recog
nizee, the fact that an additional main to
Florence Is sorely needed for the safety and
good service to the citlxens of Omaha.
"On July. 27, 1908, I wrote your honorable
board stating that 'the board of directors
had authorised me to say that the Water
company will undertake to lay ao much of a
new main between Florence and Omaha as
may be necessary, provided the water board
will enter Into an agreement, binding upon
the city, to pay the company upon comple
tion of any portion of the works the total
cost of such improvements, with per cent
Interest In addition to what would other
wise be the purchase price."
"To this letter I receive no reply, so on
October 22 of the same year I again wrote
to the water board reiterating the offer, to
which I received no reply.
"On July L 1910. the city of Omaha will
owe the Omaha Water company, with ac
crued Interest, approximately $425,000 for
past due unvald hyJrant rental. If the city
will pay the company thlj money I will
recommend the board of directors to renew
the proposition nw.de In our former letters.
This suggestion Is made to the water board
' aolely In she Interests of the citlxens of
Omaha and for the benefits of the water
plant, only forestalling an extension that
the city of Omaha will be obliged to make
when It cornea Into possession of the plant.
