Dies After Operation.
Geneva, Neb., Jan. 4. (Special.)
The news of the death of Jacob Bel

was received here today. He had
lately undergone an operation for ap
pendicitis. He had been studying
medicine in Lincoln. He was 21 years
old. His home was in Hamilton pre
cinct. Warms Rattler Pets;
Are Cooked to' Death
He was only 18. It was senti
ment and a desire for a little ad
venture, he said, that caused him
to join Company A of the Fourth
Nebraska Guards. He never made
many friends among the boys on
the border, and so when he had
a little time to spare he usually
sat on the banks of the Rio
Grande, which flowed near the
camp at Llano Grande.
That's where Private O. P.
Farnsworth caught them, two
deadly, poisonous, diamond-backed
rattlesnakes, which were seeking
solitude, like himself. He had a
hard time, he admitted, to keep
them in a box and soothe their
vicious temper. But overtures in
the way of live frogs and bugs
finally won them over.
He brought them to Fort Crook.
Bessie and Mary he called them.
They suffered from the cold
weather. Yesterday he placed
them on a radiator to thaw out He
was called to help in the kitchen.
He came back in an hour and Bes

had been cooked to death.

OF ME?
NEWSPAPERMEN
AT HUSE DINNER
Thirty Associates of Norfolk
Editor Bid Him Farewell
as Goes East.
HAMMOND IS TOASTM ASTER
Thirty men, newspaper men and
business men, associates or friends
of Norris A. Huse of the Norfolk
Daily News, gathered at the Hotel
Fontenelle last evening, where they
tendered Mr. Huse a farewell banquet
on the eve of his departure for New
York City, where he is to take up
his work as vice president of the
American Press Association and ad
vertising manager for that concern,
Mr. Huse has only recently accept
ed this new position in the east; has
severed his connections as editor .of
the Norfolk Daily News, and expects
to leave Saturday of this week for
New York.
Ross Hammond, editor of the Fre
mont Tribune, was toastmaster. With
his characteristic drollery he carried
the honors off well. C. D. Traphagen
of the Lincoln Journtl paid a tribute
to the guest of the evening and re
cited an optimistic poem, entitled,
"Say, Ain't It Fine Today?"
Gene Huse Speaks,
i Gene Huse, brother of Norris,
when called upon for an expression,
reviewed briefly the record of his fa
ther, who put in twenty-five years of
his life building up the business which
he left to. the two brothers. "When
I lost my father I lost my best and
greatest adviser," he said. "Now it
seems I am to lose the man who has
been my associate and adviser since
that time. I am proud of Norris,
proud of his ability, and am sure he
will make good in his new position
in New York. If in conducting the
paper alone in Norfolk I can win the
friendship and esteem of my asso
ciates as he has done, I shall feel that
I, too, have succeeded."
Al Galusha of McCook said he re
garded Mr. Huse as a sort of finished
product of the newspaper fraternity.
He declined to give him all credit
personally, for, he said, "his father
was one of the purest men that ever
lived." ' r
.;''' Huses Are Square.
Victor Rosewater said he felt sure
Mr. Huse would get a good grip on
things in New York and would make
good from the start "I have done
business with his father in the past
and I want to say that from his fa
ther to his brother, and uncles I
never did business with a squarer set
of men than the Huses."
Mr. Huse in responding declared it
is with reluctance that he leaves the
role of country publisher. "It was
only yesterday ' that Rainbolt over
there and myself planned to go to
the circus together,' when we arranged
that he should tie a strinst to his toe
and hartg the string out of the win
dow so that I might pull it to wake
him in the morning.
You did it, too, chimed in W. M.
Rainbolt
Mr. Huse reviewed his earrv news-
Daoer exoeriences. especially as uni
versity correspondent for The Omaha
Bee, and then told his tnends tnat
he confidently expects to be homesick
in New York tor old Nebraska and
the associates he leaves behind.

CITY COMMISSION
TO PROBE BUDGET
City Hall Denizens Want More
Than They Can Spend
in Year. '
MAYOR SEEKS AN INCREASE
The city commissioners will begin
at the stroke of 10 this morning to
fix the budget for 1917. An analysis
of the 1 estimates prepared by the
various departments indicate that the
city hall folks wants $150,000 more
than they can spend during the year.
The task before the commissioners
will be to lop off $150,000. Each de
partment head is of the opinion that
the other fellow's estimate should be
lopped off first -
Many proposed increases of sal
aries are included in the increased es
timates. The mayor wants an increase
from $1,5.00 to $1,800 a year for his
secretary. The inspector of weights
and measures believes the H. C. of L.
warrants increase of his pay from
$1,200 to $1,800 a year, and his as
sistants from $1,000 and $900 to $1,200
each a year.
Planners Hodest.
The City Planning commission
comes in with a modest request for
$25,000. It is proposed to increase
the secretary of the commission from
$2,500 to $3,000 a year, add a stenog
rapher at $900 and engineer at $1,500
to the office force, employ three new
draughtsmen at $1,320, $1,080 and $960,
engage a special clerk for investiga
tion work at $1,200, set aside $8,000 for
special services of expert planners and
$2,500 for transportation and hotel ex
penses for the expert planners.
The estimate of the city engineering
department includes twenty-three
salary raises, beginning with En
gineer Bruce, $3,000 to $3,600, and
Assistant Engineer Beal, $2,100 to
$2,400. This department wants $7,000
more for increased salaries. Two
boilr inspectors want increases from
$1,200 to $1,500 and several members
of the building department are slated
for raises if the increased estimate of
that" department goes through. The
city electrician feels that an increase
from $2,000 to 02,250 would enable
him to successfully keep the wolf
from the door.
Hummel's Request
Commissioner Hummel will ask for
$100,000 for the park fund and $40,000
for recreation fund, increases of $10,
000 and $20,000, respectively, over
1916.
Commissioners Kugel and Withnell
are asking for the maximum amounts

total ot 1,SW,0W to work with in
preparing the budget tor the year.
Not Quite Down and Out
Many a man feels that he is down
and out when as a matter of fact he
still has in him many years of good
service that can be brought out by
DroDcr treatment. Stomach trouble
often makes one despondent. It hits
him where he lives, saos his strength
and energy and makes him feel like
giving up. Give him a few doses of
Chamberlain's Tablets to improve his
digestion and invigorate his liver and
bowels, and in most cases recovery is
prompt and effectual, Advertisement.

CHRIST'S SCIENCE
WAS HIND MIGHT
Ezra W. Palmer Says Jems
Was the Great Christian Sci
entist and Demonstrator.
ALL LITE IS BUT MIND
Jesus Christ was the great Christian
Scientist because he was the great ex
ponent of the omnipotence of God
and of the' might of mind, Ezra W.
Palmer, C. S. B., of Denver, Colo.,
told his audience last night at the
First Church of Christ, Scientist,
Twenty-fourth and St. Mary's avenue,
where he lectured on "Christian Sci
ence; the Science of Omnipotent
Mind."
"By reason of the sinless birth of
Christ Jesus and His sonshio with
the Father," said Mr. Palmer, "He
knew and expressed the will of God.
The religious systems of His day
claimed to teach the true worship of
God. But these systems produced no
results to prove their unity with the
Father. Jesus not only knew the
power of God He proved it by re
sults. He proved that what claimed to
be the real on the evidence of the cor
poreal senses was not real but illu
sion. He reversed the false claim that
matter has life, intelligence or power,
either to injure or bless mankind. The
false, carnal mentality which St. Paul
declared was "tnmity against God,"
Jesus stripped of all pretense and
characterized it as a liar and the
father of it." He never taught that
God created matter, or that God was
in any way responsible for sin, sick
ness or death. On the contrary, He
exposed the unreal basis of these
errors and destroyed them through
the might ot mind.
The Science of Mind.
'The Science of Mind, which Mrs.
Eddy taught is the science of know
ing truth. It is the science Jesus
meant when He said: 'Ye shall know
the truth, and the truth shall make
you free.' How can we know -the
truth except through thought? If we
can know truth only through thought,
then truth itself must have its source
in mind. The Scriptures teach us to
know God, to love Him, and to obey
Him. How can we follow these com
mands except through consciousness?
The Scriptures teach that man was
born of God, that all the marvels of
the universe were created by Him.
How are these marvels possible ex
cept we grant that God is supreme
fja j .L. . i. .
minur minu is inc source, inc origin
of all intelligence, all taw. all order.
Mind is life, the cerator of all the
manifestations of lite, and these mam
testations are the ideas of God.
Therefore, God and His creation
dwell in the heaven of mind."

Robert Burns Answers a Leap
Tear Proposal by Saying
He is Too Young.
OTHER BACHELORS LAND
By A. R. GROH.
It was a great responsibility that
we assumed when, last Thursday, we
advertised to tht. world tlie ,ia-ec of
a number of Omaha bachelors and
warned the ladies that only threetl
days morj were left in leap year.
Nor shall we shrink from our re
sponsibilities :. w that the answers
are coming in. We shall speak from
the plenitude i ' our wisdom and ad
vise these young hearts in their "af
faires du coeur."
Upon the wings of the mo . :.ig
and via the United States mails came
a letter to me from "Bob" Burns,
Omaha society man, social worker,
business man.
Mr. Bur.is was one of the Vis
ion mentio d and be has received
a proposal. Naturally, most natu
rally, he r .shed to me for advice, his
young bachelor heart palpitating
with the .,eet emotion, of the gentle
passion.
His sister, Mrs. C T. Kountre, and
his brother, "Sam" Burns, are both
very hap' married, but he chose
me for his confidant Ah, beautiful
tribute! He enclosed the letter from
the lady in ir' - that I might give
the affair my full attention and bring
to bear upon it the gre. t 'fhf jf
w.dom.
Burns Too Young. ."
"Dear G .V the blushing i.r,
Burns palpitates ; in his letter, "Dear
Groh", (here '.oug and . emulous
on-laden dash, and then my
c. . ....uiiuci.t opens with a burst of
sentimental poetry), 'The course of
true love never i.id run smooth, 1
am 34 and the lady who writes to me,
you will note, is' 41. Maybe I had
better take her, anyway.
"Robert T. Burns.
"P. S. I wrote her today and' told
her I was too young."
This is the lady's letter, which he
encloses:
"Mr. Robert Burns, Omaha, Neb.
Dear Sir: I chanced to see a
writeun by A. R. Groh in The Omaha
Bee December 29. It may be you
would like to make my acquaintance.
I am a widow-by-law, 41 years old.
I should like to hear from you at an
early date. Sincerely." etc.
I have her full name before me, but
I shall not publish it. No, no! She
has trusted us with it and we shall
be worthy of that trust. She lives
in a Nebraska town which begins
with "C." That is all you shall
know.
. Johnson Was Happy..
Mr, Bums has already given 4iis
answer, a reluctant and hesitating
"no," and so I don't see what more I
can do, I don't believe, however.
that a mere difference of seven years
in ages is an adequate objection, per
se. Samuel Johnson, the famous
Englishman of whom Boswell was the
biographer, married a widow twenty
years his senior and this marriage
was ideally happy.

Advertising Facts
YOU will almost admit that nearly all success

but you may be rather doubtful if advertising
will pay YOU.
IN other words, you admit the other fellow has
no more advantage than you have, inasmuch
as you can buy the same advertising space he can.
THEN why not follow the other fellow. What
pays him will pay you, providing, of course,
you have something worth while to offer.
