School for the Feeble Minded at Beatrice
e ailed on Governor A Id rich today In regard
to tha easa of 11-year-old George Baker
Header, who was an inmate of the Institu
tion twenty-four days. The account of the
conduct and treatment at the school given
I to tha executive by Supei Intend ent Thomas
I was such that tha governor deemed an In
vestigation was not necessary. The black
and bin marks found upon the boy were
thought to have been made when ha took
a severe tumble down stairs several days
ago. According to Thomas ths best of
attention Is given tha children at the
school, but that frequently in spite .of all
that attendants can do the smaller ones
'f tha weak-minded children often fall
down stairs or out of a window before they
can be caught.

tha appointment of a Cass county super'
tntendent, where DeBolt was then teaching.
McBrtems choosing of an alleged favorite

been made to have them destroyed, but so

Mrs. Flske In comedy Is quite a novelty
to those who have come to know her only
for the more serious appeals to the Intel
lect she has made during the last decade
or longer. But some of the uldrr of the
audience who laughed with her at tbe
Brandeis last night can recall a day when
her bent seemed directly in line of comedy,
and some of them have always felt that a
ttrst-rata comedienne was swallowed up
in tbe greater achievements of this dis
tinguished woman. tier active life Is
taken up with so many interests that one
wonders when uhe gets time to laugh;
and perhaps that la the reason ene has
staged her present play. "Mrs. Bump-
stead-Leigh" gives her many opportunities
to laugh, and it is quite believaole that the
nearly chuckles she indulges from time to
time are more than the stage laughs re
quired by the progrcba of the play. Her
tun Is too real, and her enjoyment too
sincere to be entirely assumed, even by
so clever a women. And she does show
her proUan qualities in many wae in this
play, especially in her changes from the
role of the aristocratic englishwoman to
that of tha hustling lioosler, full of In
diana Idioms and llrtd by the determlna
lion that has pushed her upward from th
obscurity 'of Missionary Loop to the
heaven of an alliance by marriage with
one of England's most exclusive families.
It Is In the latter chaiacter that sne lias
undertaken to arrange a marriage between
her younger sister and the scion of one
of America's most exalted families. She
has all but succeeded, when a garrulous
tombstone peddler 'rom the old home In
Indiana turns up and the plans for the
weeding are wrecked. Just at the moment
of defeat victory comes to her, for she
discovers that the youthful snob who hat
denounced her la not Impeccable, and as
his brother really loves her sister, Mrs
Bumpstead-Lelgh la left mistress of the
field. Tha material Is scanty enough anJ
