Teachers Will Be
Around the City
The publicity bureau Is preparing to
send out 19,000 welcome folders of Omaha
to the teachers of the state, who are
expected to attend the meeting of the
State Teachers' aseoctalon hero In No
vember. The folders contain some Inter
esting viewa of Omaha and a lot of
concise Information about the, metropolis.
Invitations are constantly being received
at the publicity bureau from manufac
turers and wholesalers In the city, ask
ing that the teachers visit their plants
during their stay In Omaha.
The excursion feature of the association
meeting is becoming an Important feature
and every year the teachers are taken
In a body through some of tho large man
ufacturing plants of the city. The list of
invitations will be presented to the .teach
ers when they come and a decision will
then be made on a list of those to be ac
cepted for excursions that will be enter
taining and instructive.
Of recent years the idea has grown in
teachers' associations and educational
circles that teachers, besides having a
fund of book Information, Bhould learn
as much as possible about the state In
which they have the care of the young,
and should especially have a compre
hensive knowledge of the large industries
and manufactories In that state. It is
in pursuance of this idea that excursions
of the' teachers are becoming more and

did not .prove to be as good a bargain
as he expected, William Nltche, teamster
living at Twenty-seventh and Mander
son streets. Is said to have beaten the an
imal about the head with a two-by-four,
injuring the beast so severely that he
was fqreed to shoot it.
.Nltche made the purchase Tuesday aft
ernoon, and Wednesday discovered that
the animal was balky. Infuriated at hav
ing driven a bad bargain he secured tho
piece of heavy planking and rained blow
after blow about the htlpless animal's
head. The brute, with blood pouring from
several cuts opened by the board, at
tracted the attention of neighbors with
its moaning. The police were notified
and Humane Officer Hans Nielsen dis
patched, and he had a difficult time in
bringing the man to the station without
trouble from a crowd that had gathered.
In police court Nltche pleaded not
guilty, but tho evidence submitted against
him proved sufficient for Judge Foster
to administer a fine of $25 and costs.
Nltchs appealed the case.

DANCING TEACHER SAYS
OMAHA IS NOT TANGO MAD
Miss Jewell Simpson, teacher of danc

says that though she has advertised for
pupils for her tango class, there have
been so few responses, that she has de
cided to abandon that branch, for the
present at least.
"Out of 200 students, only two have
asked to be taught the tango or Its varia
tions," she said. "The rest are satisfied
with the simple, old-fashioned waltr and
"This fact convinces me that even
though the tango Is at the height of Its
popularity In the east, and In certain
places here, It will never be universal or
long lived. The average Omaha miss or
youth Is apparently satisfied with tho
waltz or two step at dances, and the lock
legged steps, even though simple), are not
very eagerly sought after. So I don't
