Bioa Altogether about 200 undertakers,
enibalmcrs and salesmen of caskets and
supplies will attend.
They will get together for their mutual
benefit to advanco their profession and
promulgate the latest methods In their
work. The annual business of tho asso
ciation Itself will bo decidedly Incidental
to tho great opportunities afforded, es
pecially to the delegates from the smaller

selves In the art of funeral directing and
the science of embalming.
To UIkcuin Km lilt I mi ii If.
Their deliberation!) and activities will
also havo an Indirect etfect an tho gen
eral public, who will learn from the con
vention that thero Is a proper method of
embalming and burial, as well as a proper
way of tvlng. Tho latest scientific sys
tem of embalming will bo discussed and
actually demonstrated before ., dole
gales to the convention by I'rof. W. p.
Hohenschuh of Iowa City, who makes a
specialty of Instructing apprentice em
banners and showing the newer develop
ments In the science to regular prac
titioners. He will give a tectum and practical
demonstration each afternoon of the
three days of tho convention, using t
cadaver at tho convention hall to Illus
trate His methods and show tho student
embalmers Just how to do their work.
On Friday after tho demonstrations
have been completed and tho funeral
directors havo-adjourned, an examination
of the young men seeking admission to
the profession will bo held at the plant of
the Omaha Casket company. This will bo
given by the Stat) Bourd of Examiners
of Embalmers, who will Issue licenses to
those showing themselves competent. A
considerable number of applicants for

Dinplur of l'urniihernnlln.
At tho convention hall a large and In
teresting assembly of funeral para
phernalia, will be exhibited during tho
sessions. All the prominent manufactur
ers and distributers of caskets, embalm
ing fluids and supplies will be repre
sented with displays of their products.
That there Is stylo even In funerals will
be demonstrated by tho varied exhibits.
A constant tendency to chango and im
prove tho designs and trimmings of cas
kets, to advanco the mechanical equip
ment of undertaking establishments and
to better tho appointments of funerals,
without materially Increasing the cost,
will be strongly emphasized by the big
nrroy of operating and directing facilities
that will be presented for tho exnmlna- i
tlon and study of the undertakers.
"Tho 'high cost of dying Is entirely
mythical," declares a local undertaker,
who has been actlvo In promoting tho
convention. "Embalming, funeral and
burial nowadays arc no more expensive
than they used to be, considering tho
facilities, equipment and service fur-'
nlshed by the modern funeral director.
In fact, wo offer correct, scientific ser
vice now at a lower cost than ever be
fore." Wilt lie niR MrotliiK.

Latin Students at
with Chart System
An exhibit which called forth much en
thusiastic comment from the eighth grade
pupils and their teachers who visited the
Omaha High school Thursday afternoon
was the Latin chart in room 230. On the
walls of this room, which Is headquarters
for tho Latin department. Is displayed a
series of illustrations which give In
graphic and concrete form an answer to
the school boy's query, "What' the use
The chart Idea originated with Miss
France E. Sabln of Oak Park (I1L) High
school, and the material for It wa col
lected by the pupils and arranged and
printed under the direction of the teach
ers. Tho relation of Latin to the dally life
of the pupil Is shown first, to emphaslxe
the help it affords In the study of Eng
lish. A large number of actual Latin words
such as are used now in English' and
which have not changed their form since
Roman times, arc given.
That Latln Is not a 'dead' language,
but has only changed Its name," la
graphically shown by a colored map of
the Roman empire. Where Latin was
once spoken by the Romans It Is still
tho language of the people under the
narno of French, Italian, Spanish. Portu
gese or Roumanian. For W per cent of
the vocabulary of these languages a
Latin scholar does not need to even con
sult a dictionary.
"U Is the design of out department,"
Miss Snyder says, "to add to our col
lection Illustrations of various other ways
in which Latin Is related to everyday
life. Its connection with the sciences
taught In- the high school Is now being
worked out. How it Is related to success
In various occupations and professions
and its values as mental discipline are
other lines which will receive our atten
tion later. The material to be drawn
upon I practically inexhaustible. The
time and effort expanded by teachers
and pupils we feel Is amply repaid by
the Increased Interest and enthusiasm
which the pupils bring to their tasks."
BRUTALLY TREATED BECAUSE
HE ONLY HAD FIVE CENTS
Because Walter Coleman, Montreal,
Canada, only had 6 cents on his person
when they accosted him under the Tenth
street viaduct, several' strongarm men
brutally treated him and slashed his
throat with a knit. Thirteen stitches
were taken by Dr. H. C. Hubenbeckcr
to close the gaping wound.
Coleman arrived here Thursday on a
visit. He was taken to the police station
wher ehta wounds were dressed.

Train Will Make
500 Miles an Hour
LONDON, June 6, While experts con
tinue to d'ocuss the practicability of M.
Bachelet's aerially suspended railway, J.
Esson, a Birmingham manufacturer, an
nounces that he has invented a train
which will travel 6C0 miles an hour, 209
miles an hour faster than tbe Bach'elet
This latest Invention Is of the mono
rail type, but has one of the Bochelet
features. Inasmuch as it will fly after
attaining a certain speed. It does not
rely tor levttatlon on magnetic repulsion,
but on the principles of aviation. It wilt
be a hybrid of a street car and an aero
plane with an overhead trolley and pro.
pellets. The model s driven by electricity.
The Inventor claims that It can attain a
speed of SCO mile an hour with eaie n.nrt
safety and he expects to give a demon
stration soon with a working model.
The train is connected with the cable
at either extremity by rods terminating
In flanged wheels, these rods serving to
convey current to motors fore and aft.
The Inventor declares that the train '
so designed thst when It has attained a
sufficient velocity It will lift Itself from
the velocity buffer spring andj fly. This,
he claims, will mean a huge saving In
Home Through Mud
and Slush of Roads
Automobile navigation through streams
of mud and water that were roads until
Friday night's heavy rains, is not a
pleasant or easy recreation, according
to Dr. R; E. Marble. He and Mrs. Marble
were In the Good Fellowship Boosters'
auto party, but had to desert the party
Friday night on account of an urgent
call for the physician's services In
Thoy went from Beatrice to Lincoln
through the mud anil water after tho
rain, and then came to Omaha by train.
Dr. Marble says he wouldn't undertake
thh trip again. It was so bad.
Another member of the party, O. T.
Eabjinan, alsq camo In by train.
This' makes the second recent auto trip
for Sam Burns, on which h. h.. k
held up by rains. E&rlv in h. i. v..
had to ship his car home by rail and
return on a train.
