Urges Growing of Alfalfa
On Vacant Lots in Omaha
Regarding the use of vacant lots and
the possibility of beautifying the city,
G. G. Wallace, secretary of the Oma
ha Real Estate board says:
"There is a growing sentiment
among real estate people that the
present method of . handling vacant
lots and blocks is obsolete. The idea
of leasing lots for $1 a lot simply to
pay for the care required and to pre
vent some squatter from getting pos
session' is childish. While a well-conducted
garden on a vacant lot is an
advantage both to the gardener and
the landlord, in that it keeps the lot
attractve in appearance, this method
can be improved upon. For some
years one or two of the leading real
tors have been uring the sowing of
alfalfa or other similar crops, but
no conceited, effort has takeu place.
There is a disposition now, under the
changed sentiment as to the proper
care of a city, to beautify vacant and
unoccupied property, especially if it
is with a crop which can be made
reasonably profitable or sufficient to
pay expenses. With the high price of
alfalfa and of alfalfa seed, it is argued
that if every vacant lot in Omaha
were sown down in this forage crop,
that the city would be additionally
beautified in another year, and not
only the expense would be paid from
the harvest, but considerable profit.
It is recited that those who have care
fully gardened, or have made proper
efforts to get a crop result out of lots
or blocks this year, have made well.
5"he ordinary block contains about five
acres. This ought to bring in al
falfa clear, in a season at least $100
and at present prices much more. Con
certed effort on the part of owners of
vacant lots, especially the larger
tracts, and the real estate agents
would do much to add to the growing
attractiveness of the city and the
profits pi the property."
Farewell Meeting for
The Hibernian divisions of Omaha
field a special farewell meeting Friday
in honor of Edward McDermott and
Daniel Devlin, who leave in a few
days for the officers' training camp
at Fort Snelling, Minn. Dr. Thomas
Mullen presided over .the meeting, at
which several speeches were made,
commending the young men for their
patriotic action and example,
Mr. McDermott, who is state sec
retary of the Ancient Order of Hiber
nians, recently was graduated from
the Creighton Law school, while Mr.
Devlin is a man of unusually wide mil
itary experience, having served as
captain in the crack Irish-American
regiment, the Sixty-ninth New York,
throughout the Spanish-American war.
He was later commissioned a major
in -the same regiment.
Both men were assured that the
Hibernians left at home would not
forget their brothers in the field. An
nouncement was made that the Ideal
divisions had not only raised their as
sessment for the $1,000,000 war fund,
proposed by the Hibernian national
committee, but had appointed com
mittees to look after war relief work
of a purely local character.
Colonel P. C. Heafey on behalf of
the other members presented gifts to
the future officers, who left Saturday
for Fort Snelilng.

WILL HOLDTAG DAY
To Attempt to Raise $5,000
for Guardians of Public Health
Here on Wednesday, Sep
The Visiting Nurse association of
Omaha will hold its annual tag day
Wednesday, September 5. Last year
the association received $4,500; this
year the objective amount is $5,000.
"What is a visiting nurse?" was
asked of Bessie H. kandall, R. N.,
superintendent of the association. Her
"Familiar as the appearance of the
visiting nurse has become about the
streets of Omaha, the question, 'What
is a visiting nurse?' is constantly
"A visiting nurse is a graduate reg-
istered nurse employed by the Visiting
Nurse association to give to the poor
and those of moderate means the best
home nursing possible, always under
the direction of a physician. They re
spond to all calls, irrespective of color,
race or creed.
Age of Prevention.
"As this is fast becoming an age
of prevention, the visiting nurse finds
that her greatest work lies along the
line of prevention, that is, to teach
'how and 'why.' She teaches patient
ly and untiringly the laws of sanita
tion and hygiene, together with her
nursing care. Every visit in the home
is one of demonstration and instruc
tion, as some one in the home must be
taught how to care for the patient
during the nurse's absence, or until
she makes her next call.
"The visiting nurse, in her blue uni
form, represents a staff of skilled pub
lic health nurses, co-operating with
every charitable organization in the
city and every state institution. They
represent the very highest type of
womanhood, and their willingness and
kindness, together with their skilled
work, has won them thousands of
friends among the poor of Omaha."
No Sympathy for the
, Coal Man From Copenharve
The local coal dealers who desire to
have their present high prices sus
tained until they can unload their
bins of high priced coal upon the con
sumers, are getting no sympathy
from I. J. Copenharve of the South
Side. Copenharve says he simply
voices the sentiment of every con
sumer he has talked to, when he says
that last year the coal dealers made
enough profit on coal they bought
cheap to afford to lose a little this
"Last year they filled their yards
with coal bought to retail at $11 for
hard coal and $6.50 for soft," says
Copenharve. Then later they got to
gether and raised the price to $14 for
hard coal and up as high as $9 for
Says Important War Legisla

I "The crown prince of Germany re-

last argument of kings,'" said Con
gressman Charles II. Sloan of the
Fourth Nebraska district, in Omaha
Saturday. "If that crown prince is
not very careful the submarine will
prove the argument of the last king
"The fight against submarines will
be a process of development and in
vention. When the war first broke
out the allies were faced with the
problem of combatting the Zeppelins,
the big Krupp guns, the poisonous
gas and other methods new and hor
rible, but gradually they developed
inventions to counteract their effect.
It will be so with the submarine."
Congressman Sloan left last night
for Washington after spending some
days in Nebraska, since the house by
a kind of gentleman's agreement dis
banded for a short time without for
mal adjournment, just to let the sen
ate catch up with some of the work
on which the house is far ahead of
the upper chamber.
Prepare New Bond Issue.
Monday morning the house mem
bers will get together for work
again and the ways and means com
mittee, of which Congressman Sloan
is a member, will begin consideration
of the proposed new bond issue.

According to Congressman Sloan,
there are, besides the bond issue, two
other major pieces of legislation that
will tome up almost immediately, one,
the consideration of an insurance and
compensation law to take the place
of the pension system for the sol
diers, and the other the revenue bill,
which he believes the senate will now
pass very soon.
Mr. Sloan has been spending all
his spare moments for some time in
a close study of the subject of the
prevalence of tuberculosis among live
stock. He says he intends soon to
introduce a bill providing for closer
operation between the federal and the
state governments in an effort to
stamp out this disease, through the
three principal means, care in breed
ing, sanitation and quarantining.
Added Letter Carriers
Deliver Mail on Time
Postmaster Fanning says there has
been such an improvement in the de
livery service since seven new car
riers were added to the force two
weeks ago that he has received nu
merous congratulations by telephone
"These carriers have been put on in
the business district," he said, "and
have been just about enough to give
us a force that can make all scheduled
deliveries. All carriers now make their
scheduled deliveries and have to work
only eight hours to do it.
"We have the promise of still more
carriers soon. There are now thirty
on the substitute list and there is
enough work so that they are called
on practically every day and make as
much money as regular carriers. We
soon will have a list of new eligible,
being those who passed the recent ex
aminations for carriers."
Omaha Now a Big
Several carloads of army supplies
and equipment are being shipped out
of Omaha every day. The quarter
master's department in Omaha is one
of the largest in the country.
Colonel Grant of the quartermaster
depot has a large force of clerks
working almost night and day receiv
ing and shipping. The government
desires to buy all supplies at the
most convenient point, and for that
reason, other things being equal, Oma
ha will be given preference in the
matter of the purchase of supplies.
Many of the Omaha factories are
working to capacity all the time turn
ing out goods for the army. The tent
and awning factories, for example, are
exceptionally busy turning out army
tents, kits, feed bags, and many other
articles of canvas for use in the army.
It is understood that an $80,000 order
was recently divided between the
tent and awning companies of Omaha,
and these are working at full capacity.

The Duryea War Relief, of which
the officers are: Mrs. Nina L. Duryea,
president; Mrs. Seth Rarton French
and Mrs. J. Borden Harriman, vice
presidents, and Mrs. Charles H. Dit
son, secretary, had its first inception
and first organization at Dinard,
France, immediately after the out
break of hostilities in August, 1914.
Later, as the work became systema
tized and received the official recog
nition of the French government, its
headquarters were removed to Paris.
It is now established at 11 rue
Louis le Grand, in quarters loaned
by the Viscount de Saint-Seine. There
is a volunteer corps of thirty work

Sam is a large consumer .when he gets

Here is another illustration of the
things that are likely to be over
looked. Last week Commissioner
Manley learned that there Was urgent
need of a large number of strong
wooden chests out at Fort Omaha.
These chests are to be used in
conveying the instruments, ropes,
stakes and other paraphernalia con
nected with the balloon department of
the service. The officer in charge had
been unable to get any Omaha firm
really interested in the contract and
was about to send out of town to
have the chests made. Commissioner
Manley asked the industrial secretary
of the Commercial club to take .hold
of the matter. Within two hours Mr.
Gillaa had a local planing mill fore
man out to Fort Omaha getting the
plans and specifications for these
chests and the result was an order
for about 600 of the chests, which will
be rushed right through.
