(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, June . Spectal.)-The Iden
tity of the member of the democratic
tate committee who proponed that the
Oregon plan of electing United States sen
ators, . contrary to the wishes of friends
of Governor Hhallenberger, Is no longer a
mystery. Arthur Mixtion, state oil In
spector, Is the man. lie mode the motion
and the plan was engineered by Harvey
Newbranch, manager of Mr. Hitchcock.
Should Governor Shallenberger happen
to return to his office and should Arthur
Mullen ever show up at the Btate house
and the two should meet, there m'ght be
a lively discussion over the obligations an
appointee owes his chief. Yesterday Leo
Matthews, chief clerk to the governor and
secretary of the state committee, could
not recall who made the motion to endorse,
and neither could Governor Uhallenberger,
but the silence of the secretary's records
on the question Is an Indication of what
the governor thought of the matter and
how the" secretary considered it. Today
one of those who was present at the meet
ing came forward and announced that It
was Arthur Mullen that Newbranch had
used to carry out the Hitchcock senatorial
plans and thus put a block In the way of
the senatorial ambitions of the executive.
So far threo democrats have filed for
the legislature. Two of them are silent
on the Oregon plan and the third signs

Pickens who served In '.the house during
the last session from Jefferson county. He
has filed for the senate, but prominent
democrats from his home say he will be
pulled off In due time and permitted to
file for the house. J. A. Robertson Ig
nored "Statement No. 1" when he filed
for representative in the Flfty-thlrd dis
trict as did Senator Hatfield when he filed
for re-election from the Antelope county

General - Manager BucklnKham of the
South Omaha stock yards was the prin
cipal -witness today in the case wherein
the stock yards is seeking an order from
the railway commission which will permit
it to increase Its switching rates.
Mr. Buckingham was preceded by en
gineers of the railroads, who discussed the
Taluatlon of the real etat4 owned by the
stock yards, which corresponded to the re
port of this valuation by the company. It
was brought out that many empty cars
are handled by the switching department
of the stock yards without chanre. This Is
brought ' about by some shippers ordering
cars placed at their disposal and when
the cars are ready for use the order Is
countermanded. The stock yards has to
a witch the cars Into the yards and then
back to tho. railroads. . .
"Why aren't you entitled to make a
charge far this servicer lnuulred'ftr. Win.
sett. ".v .
"It Is not on our schedule," was the
answer of .(is general manager, "and we
are unable te collect any charge which Is
not authorized by our schedule of rates."
The commissioner was of the opinion the
yards are entitled to collect for this serv
ice, though the matter was not gone Into
further. Mr. Buckingham set out that in
his opinion, the stock yards was entitled to
make the' same charge for switching as
on railroad charges another.
"I am very much interested In the uni
versity farm," said Mr. Buckingham aftor
the hearing, "and it was my Intention to
spend a day there on this trip, but I have
sot . had the time. The farm Is doing a
jp-cat work for Nebraska. It Is turning out
young men upon whom the future of the
state will depend, and the stock yards
.ipany Is anxious to do all it can to en
courage that work and to asnlst In get'lna
young men to attend the school. We will
have the boys with us one day next Feb
ruary, and we expect to show them a
splendid time as well as give thfm much
practical Instruction.
t'onnty Option I. oral Question.
P. A. Caldwell, former member of the
legislature from Clay county, was in Lin
coln today calling on state officers and
talking politics.
"Out hi Clay county everything is very
quiet," rold Mr. Caldwell, "but politically
something Is apt to start at any time.
There Is sum discussion about county op
tion and If left to a vote of ' the county
I do not know how It would come out,
itaut in my opinion the republican state
Convention should not endorse It In its plat
form, rractlcslly all. If not all of the can
dldatea for the-legislature will be called
upon to take a stand on this question, so
j there Is no use Insofar as I can see for
sf the state convention to burden Its platform
with such a plank. Our party la made up
of all kinds and classes of people and I
can see no good to come af alienating
any o fthe voters on a qeustlon which can
be settled In each district.

of Omaha will surprise the people by the
vote he will get at the primaries. He Is
strong and many democrats In Clay county
will ovte for him because they know where
he will stand on any question that may
come up."
Mr. Caldwell has not yet decided what he
will do about running for railway com

mits Suicide While at Hast
I bbts Asylum.
HOLDREX3E, Neb., Jane 9.-(Speclal.)
Cecil Leddy, son of a prominent north
Phelps county family, who committed sul
clde early thle week at Ingleside, was
buried here Tuesday. The young man, who
was an Inmate of the asylum at Hastings.
killed himself by means of a piece of glass
which he broke from the window of his
room. He used the sharp splinter as a dag
ger and drove it Into his heart by jamming
It against the wall of his cell. Toung Leddy
was close to 23 years old, and was taken to
the Hastings asylum only about three
months ago. A part of that time, however,
he was under treatment at Emmanuel hos
pital at Omaha, but as that did not prove
beneficial to him he' was returned to Hast
lngs. The young man had been mentally
unbalanced for the last two years, and the
cause has always been a mystery. He left
the family home one day in the spring of
l'JOs and went, as his folks supposed, to the
fields. But when he returned he was cov
ered with blood and, although able to talk.
refused to do so and would answer abeo
lutely no questions as to how he became
bloody. His mind, which had been wrecked
that day, gradually became weaker, until
It was deemed the only safe course to com
mit him to the Institution for the insane.
There he was considered a good inmate,
and the possibility or the lad killing him
self did not enter the minds of the of'

Teaching- In Asrrlenltnre.
LINCOLN, June 8 To the Editor of The
Bee: I am enclosing a clipping from to
day's Bee attached to the circular letter
recently sent out by Mr. Reed which I as
sume Inspired the comment. This letter
was sent to all the accredited schools and
applies to Lincoln, Friend, and all others
quite as much as to Omaha.
The Intention of the circular letter is as
follows: Some of the weaker schools have
been teaching agriculture from a purely
text book point of view In some cases not
the slightest effort has been made to pre
sent the subject In a practical way. We
feel that the time has come when the
schools can teach agriculture as fairly and
as honestly as they can teach the older
As far as Omaha Is concerned, since Its
high school provides for graduating pupils
with thirty-two points, and since we re
quire only thirty for admission to any of
the colleges of the university, It will not
make a particle of difference to its grad
uates whether they are credited with one
point In agriculture for admission to the
university, or not.
The letter Is a circular letter and there la
nothing In It to Imply that In our opinion
the provision made for , the teaching of
agriculture in the Omaha High school is not
adequate In every respect. As a matter of
fact it has been exceptionally fine.
I fear that some of the readers of The
Bee will Interpret the editorial to mean
that students will not he permitted to enter
our course in agriculture unless laboratory
work la done in agriculture In the High
school. The circular letter simply means
that they will not be given points in en
trance credits In this subject unless the
work Is properly done.' fhus,' for example.
If a student should enter, from a certain
high school with thirty points to his credit
of which one Was found to be agriculture
of such a character that we could not rec
ognize It, the student could enter any course
In the university with twenty-nine points
to his credit. He would have to do a little
extra work in the university and have a
college credit "set back" as we use the
term, for entrance credit, but he would be
In no way embarrassed, as agriculture Is
not a required high school subject for ad
mission to any university course.
Let' us suppose that a particular high
school requires thirty points for gradua
tion and we are obliged to notify the school
that one point offered In agriculture cannot
be accepted. If the school Is offering any
elective courses, whatever, the student may
take this Instead of agriculture, and hence
be in a position to present thlrtv points
for entrance. In a word, all we are trying
to get at this time: The agriculture which
we recognize as worthy of entrance credits
must be the real thing and not a sham
The requirements in this subject under the
new rule will be no more severe than they
have long been for botany, chemistry,
physics, and physical geography.
s' oi agricultural education In
tne country has been such that we find
one of the most embarrassing things that
we nave to contend with is to secure and
retain young men to give instruction in our
own scnooi of agriculture. They are taken
away at larger Salaries than we can af
ford to pixy before we consider them d.
quately trained. The calls usually come
irom scnoois in other states, and come to
us largely because we are making a good
icuoru in agricuiturai education. To in.
crease arbitrarily the demand for teachers
properly trained In agriculture, Is simply
to Increase our embarrassment. Further
than this, Mr. Reed Is not connected with
uie agricultural college except indirectly,
and has no personal motive whatever in
v uDinng mis side of the work.

when the schools are In the public eye. I
u, .... , can attention to what seems
a defect of no slight Importance, the reme
dying of which would not entail a cent of
rxira, expense, nor inv .,
- - v.u..,,ln4 iaoor.
It would not affect all pupils, nor, perhaps.
wnomaruuie portion or them, but those
whom It would touch, it would, I believe
he of Inestimable benefit.
To make myself clear, and n
case as briefly as possible, I will take
vwicreie example.
In my family of four children Is one
possessing sufficient musical talent to
iiihas ns cultivation worth while.
During her work In the grades she had
sufficient leisure from her school dutiej to
give all the time necessary to hr
On entering the hlirh nchnr.i n ,ui.
.,,( n ft a
cnangea. The amount of work exacted
mado It impossible to rlva m i
ought to her music. To enable her to carry
un ner musio. i had her take but half
me work laid down In the rmim ,t ....a.,
o that she necessarily required two years
to do one year s work. This gave her
plenty of time for both her school work
and muslo without any danger of overwork.
However, after taking two vo '
first year's work, there was a decided ob
jection on the part of her mother and her
self to continuing In that way, as they
figured It would takn eight years to get
through the high school. Consequently, her
muslo since that time has taken a second-
ry place, while by rights It ehould have
had an equal chance, at least. Of course,
she might have discontinued her school
work and given her time to musk1. Pos
sibly that would have been wisest Still,
I did not wish her to give up her school
She finishes her work In the high school
this year, so the remedy which I suggest
can be of no avail In her case.
Our high school requires for graduation
a certain number of "points. These
"points" are to be gained by completing
certain subjects, some of which are "obli
gatory," and some "optional." A consid
erable latitude for choice Is permitted the
pupil. Now, as an "optional," why not
allow the pupil to take muslo In the place
of some other subject, such as German or
French, for example. I would not attempt
to minimise the value of these subjects, or
others I might mention from an educa
tional standpoint, but no one, I think.
would deny for some persons an equal value
for music, whether considered from either
the educational or "bread and butter"
standpoint. In case of the girl cited there
can be no question that the same time and
energy that she has given her German
could It have been given to her muslo
would have been worth many hundred per
cent more to her.
I would not have the school authorities
furnish the musks teacher. The pupil
would take her Instruction from her music
teacher Just as at present, but would re
ceive the same credit for the work done
as though she were taking some other sub
ject as now laid down In the curriculum.
Doubtless, certain details would have to
be worked out, but as it appears to me,
that would be a simple matter.
I am not making this suggestion as a
theorist merely, nor without consideration.
I wonder if there are not other parents
who are of my way of thinking.

Nearly Wild with Painful, Burning
Eruption-Half Her Hair Fell Out
and Combing It Was Torture
Feared She Would be Bald.
"Just about two years ago, some form
of humor appeared on cay scalp. The
beginning was alight itching but it
grew steadily worse until, when I combed
my hair, the scalp become raw and tho
nds of the comb-teeth would bo wel
With blood. Most of the time there was
an lntolerablo itching, in a painful,
burning way, very much as a bad, raw
burn, if deep, will itch and smart when
first beginning to heal. Combing my
hair was positive torture. My hair waa
long and tangled terribly because of tea
blood and scabs. This continued grow,
tng worse and oyer half my hair fall
out. I waa in despair, really afraid of
becoming totally bald.
"Sometimes the pain waa ao great
that, when pArtlally awake, I would
cratch the worst places so that my finger-tips
would be bloody. I could not
sleep well and, after being asleep a short
time, that awful stinging pain would
commence and then I would wake up
nearly wild wi th the torture. A nel ghbor
said It must be salt rheum. Having
used Cuticura Soap merely as a toilet
soap before, I now decided to order a
set of tho Cutioura Remedies Cuticura
Soap, Ointment and Pills. I used them
according to directions for perhaps six
weeks, then left off, as the disease seemed
to be eradicated. But toward spring,
eighteen months ago, there was a slight
return cf the scalp humor. I com
menced the Cuticura treatment at once,
so had very Utile trouble. On my scalp
I used about one half a cake of Cuticura
Soap and half a bog cf Cuticura Oint
ment in all. The first time I took six
or seven bottles of Cuticura Pills and
the last time three bottles neither an
expensive or tedious treatment. Bine
then I have had no scalp trouble of any
kind. Standing up, with my hair un
bound, It oomea to my knees and had
It not been for Cuticura I should doubt
