Edward A. Swarti of South Omaha was
bound over to the district court In the
ura of J1.000 bonds on a charge of arson,
by - Justice C. W. Brltt. Swarti was
found guilty of setting fire to the Gate
city malt house at Second and Wool
worth streets, on the afternoon of Sep
Swartz was summoned to appear in the
Justice court on a complaint filed by
Rasmus Peterson of South Omaha, who
was one of the owners of the malt house.
Peterson, Swarti and Emll Gloe, agreed
to form . a partnership and operate a
grain elevator. The old malt house was
torn down and Swarti given the contract
to erect the new building on the old
site. Swarti completed te work oti Sep
tember 7. On September 10 he was to
make a payment into the new company
of 5.000i This, however, was not to
be paid if the property was In an unfit
condition to use. On September 8 the
building was burned almost to the

Evidence introduced Into the trial
brought to light the fact that Swarti
had received $1,200 for erecting the build
ing and that he did not have enough
money to make his first payment into
the new concern of $5,000. On the day be

had purchased several gallons of gaso
line and kerosene.
Swarts said he purchased the gasoline
to use In a blow torch to burn the paint
of the engines and the kerosene to start
fires with. But the work on all the
machinery had been completed before the
purchase of the oil and gasoline and
after the fire no trace of the stuff could
be found. Swarti has failed to raise his
$1,000 bonds and Is confined in the county

Aids the Young Women
. The Scandinavian Young Women's
Christian association is about to celebrate
Its twentieth anniversary. Under ' the
direction of Miss Marie Hoiness, pioneer
In association work for Scandinavian
young women in the United States, the
local organization has developed remark
ably. Miss Hoiness waa sent as a missionary
to America by the Lutheran church of
Norway In 1SSL She did missionary work
among Immigrants from north Europe In
Market county, Michigan, until 1887, when
she was sent to Omaha to be city mis
sionary for the Immanuel Lutheran
"There was a great need in Omaha for
an association where young women Im
migrants from Norway, Sweden and Den
mark, totally Ignorant of the language
and customs of this country, could be
taught So we started the Scan.I'-.avian
Toung Women's Christian association."
The association started with nin i mem
bers in a five-room house on 'J Venty
seventh street, between Chicago and
Davenport . Miss Ellen Nelson, from
Sweden, was the first housekeeper, and
has been house matron ever since. Right
at the start the association was a board
ing house, where foreign girls could live,
as well as a social and religious center,
Vhere they could meet for services, so
cials and study. '
As the association grew, larger houses
were necessary, and many move) were
made. But now It is In its permanent lo
cation at Twenty-ejxth and Capitol ave
nue. The building was put up by the as
sociation in 1903 from subscriptions se
cured outside of .Omaha.
Fifty women, not necessarily young or
Scandinavian, arehouaed at the associa
tion building continually. Some are
strangers just arrived In this country

and who have no homes here. In addition
to the residents, many transients are
housed for short periods, and any num

homes of the city attend the Sunday
afternoon coffees, the prayer meetings
and social events.
Having started the Omaha association
and seen It safely launched, Miss Hoiness
started a similar institution In Sioux City
In 1903, and has direct supervision over
It still. Then she started another Institu
tion In Denver in 1900, and gave it over to
local directors when Its success was as

for him and he was pretty tired of life.
At the age of he was beginning to

STATE WELL SUPPLIED
WITH SCHOOL TEACHERS
Nebraska schools are better supplied
with teachers than they have been for
years, says George W. Towne, editor of
The Nebraska Teacher, - who was in
Omaha. This supply is largely due., be
says, to the fact that more young people
now are receiving training for teaching
work in the various normal training
roures in the high schools of the state
than formerly. At the last session of the
legislature J. "W. Crabtree, then state
superintendent of ' public Instruction.
secured the passage of a bill providing
that high schools with a three-year course
of study might carry & course in normal
training and might be given the approp
riation from the state for this work.
This Mr. Crabtree did In order that the
supply of trained teachers might be In
creased In the western counties where
most of the high schools had only a
three-year course. Prior to that time
only the schools with a four-year course
were allowed this appropriation for a
course In normal training. '
