In thi Account.
Omaha's tornado news played an un
usually brief engagement on the front
pages' of the country's newspapers. For
about two whole days it held the spot
light before the mighty floods In Ohio
and Indiana swept the tornado sensation
into the bark pages.
The destruction of telegraph lines left
the outside world practically in the dark
as to the extent of the disaster. Know
ledge of a dlsuster of some dire nature
crept abroad through country telephone
reports, converging nt Grand Island, Lin
coln and Falls City, from which the tele
graph gave tho outside world nn inkling
Df a calamity- The Western Union office
In Chicago nt 3 a. m. Monday, gave out
an "unconfirmed report from Grand Is
land" that "l.OOO were killed In Omaha
by n tornado late yesterday afternoon,"
ind that "a lar.ge part of the city is in
flames nnd appears doomed."
in substance this was meagre news of
the disaster, which reached New Tfork
a'nd San Francisco Sunday night. Early
mall editions of New York papers did not
mention the report. Papers In the Chi
cago circuit carried the report and some
further Inkling of the disaster, drawn
from passengers on the Hurllngton Limi
ted, which reached Ralston after thn
blow and helped to succor tho victims.
A tip from Kansas City about the fate
of the town of Yutan, and telephone
rumors gathered nt Lincoln, constituted
the sum total of news from tho stricken,
Isolated city on Sunday night.
Inability to ronimunlcato with the city
gave wings to the wildest rumors and
exaggerations, displaying to a marked
degrco the. common human falling of
painting n dark picture blacker than It is.
In this regard Denver's sensational sheets
rastly held first place in versatility of
mellow colors bordering tho block. "A
Bosom of Flames" nnd "Tho1 Dynamiting
it Bonk Vaults by HUrglars," piled havoc
on havoc's head, and put "to shams the
puny efforts of yellow Imitators.
Railroad men on trains leaving Omaha
Sunday night dlutrlbuted wield stories
nf thA rnlnmltv at Sioux City. St. Paul
ind Des Moines. One' told of the Wood
men of the World building being so
badly damaged that It would have to be
wrecked. Tho flvo fires in wrecked
buildings at different points appeared
to these rfpe Imlnanltlon "A nighty con
flagration" that spelled doom for the
btrieken City. "I will say." said an ex
cited, passenger to a Des Moines reporter,
"the destruction at Omaha is four times
worse than the papers make It out."
Isn't that a corker?
, Publicity I'lctnrea.
The value of picture books of cities
In the newspaper morgue Is strikingly
shown In the treatment of the news of
the tornado. Confirmation of the disas
ter reaching the newspaper early on
Monday enabled them to handle th
story with extensive pictorial trimmings
on" Tuasday morning. fThe Chicago
Tribune, the New York Herald and the
Philadelphia North American reprinted
the comprehensive blrd'seye view of
Omaha printed by The Bee twelve yearn
ijgo. Fairly accurate drawings showing
the path of the tornado made these
views the most Informing of any pub
lished. The panorama picture of Omaha
taken from the High school campus, and
the business section at Sixteenth and
Kamam streets, wore used by all papers
carrying half tone picture. A rare nov
elty In the picture line was pulled out
of the morgue of the New York Sun a
picture of the southeast section known
us "Tralntown," some thirty years ago.
In Addition to this rarity the Sun printed
pictures of several fine homes, the Coun
try club houses and a column sketch of
the city's history and activities
The New York Tribune featured
"Joslyn's castle Omahu's show place. '
the Field nnd Carter Lake -lub houses,
and mentioned, umong other fine build
ings, "the magnificent Douglas county
court house, which was completed In
IkSn," a tribute to a vanished Institution
that entitles the Tribune to a photo

FOR AID IN THE GOOD WORK !
Martin Wyman has applied to the re

sistance In caring for ten persons ren
dered homeless by the tornado. Mi
Wyman nnd his wife, who live at 230.1
North Twenty-seventh street, hsve ex
hausted their own available funds In pro
viding for the necessities of the sufferers.
More than two weeks ago Mr. Wyman
lost the first finger of his right hand In
the saw mill where he was employed.
He will be unable to work for some time
He considered his own affliction slight,
as hts home was not touched by the
Mr. and Mrs. J. Hllgendorf and their
two little boys, aged 2 and 5 years, nro
at the Wyman home. Their houso at 2121
North Twenty-eighth street, was wrecked
The children were burled under tho
ruins, but were rescued by the neighbors,
among whom was Mr. Wyman.

U Is often difficult to tell just what Is
the matter with a crying, peevish baby
or child too young to express Its feel

mother will find that there is u tendency
to constipation, which has brought on a
headache or nervousness. The little one
has no pain, but feels "out of sorts."
The first thing to try Is a family remedy
containing good but mild lnxatlve prop

their choice would be Dr. Caldwell's
Sjrup Pepsin. Thousands of mothers

nmong whom may be mentioned Mrs
Jennie Manuel. Altatnont, 111., who began
to give her baby. Frederick. Syrup Pep

used It ever since' with gratifying re

growing well and threw up his food, but
nfter a few days' use of Syrup Pepsin
he jvos able to retain his food and gained
rapidly In weight. Thousands of others
are glad to say that Syrup Pepsin saved
