.Members of Athletic
Club Get Water in Ears
I the Same as When Kids
t The spacious natatorium of the
' Omaha, Athletic cluh was christened;
9 last night. A swimming- board at'
the deeper end of the plunge was
. the means of much fun for swim
diners and spectators.
' VThe ocean green color and the te
pi'dity of the water drew the greater
.' number of "water dogs" to the
; deeper end where they enjoyed the
'good old swimmin' hole sport of
jetting water in their ears and noses,
besides gulping for breath. The
X natatorium is well lighted and a nar
row balcony affords an easy view
"of the entire pool. Besides the de
partment where the bathers enjoyed
:,rub-downs, steam baths and tete-a-
teres among themselves, there is a
' spa where lunch is served.

Butler to Sell Auto Trucks
and to Buy Some Horses
, City' Commissioner Butler se
cured adoption of a resolution by
the city council, allowing him to
sell four of the big trucks used in
the department of street cleaning
"I find these big trucks are waste
ful" he said. , "The four of thtm
use up 96 gallons of gasoline a day
and repairs and upkeep are very
heavy. I am going to buy wagons
and horses to take their' place. They
are by far the most economical in
street cleaning operations. Trucks
are all right for long hauls or heavy
work, but not for small, shovel op
erations. Wife of Col. B. W. Jewel
Dies in Jacksonville. Fia.
Mrs. B. W. Jewell, wife of Col. B.
W. Jewell of Omaha, died in Jack
sonville, Fla., yesterday, according
to word received here last evening.
She is survived by one brother,
John Beemis, and one sister, Mrs.
Emma Burns of Jacksonville. Funer
al arangements have not been made,
but it is probable that the body wilt
be taken to Manchester, la., for interment.
Advocates of the city detention
hpspital say one' thing. Mayor Smith
and those opposed, 'another.
- Addresied to the "Good People of
Omaha," this is what Daisy Den
ton, an inmate, in a. letter to Sheriff
Clark, says about it: .
"This is only a few faqts told by
an unfortunate g$r1 who has experi
enced the tortures of young students
experimenting in what is known as
the city detention hospital, located
in 2211 St. Mary's avenue, but in
truth it should be termed 'A Human
"I made my first trip-there during
the month of July or the first of Au
gust and after 'staying three days I
ran away with two other girls. Af
ter scouting some three or four
weeks I made up my mind I would
not run again if I saw an officer
looking for me unless if -was one
that treated "fallen girls" as hard
ened criminals, so luck directed two
gentlemen detectives viz: Jensen and
Knutson. so I let them walk on to
the house I was in and when they
knocked I opened the door and I
was taken to the station and laid
there from 4 p. m. till court time the
Demands Court Trial.
"When I went into the court room
the matron said she was going to
take me back to the detention home
and I flatly refused, saying I had
rather stay in jail the rest of my days
than take such treatment as I sub
mitted to while 1 was there only
three or four short days. So I was
taken with two other girls, who re
fused to be taken back, to the coun
ty jail without a trial and found out
when I was turned over to Mrs.
Johns (the matron) that I was sen
tenced to 60 davs for vagrancy and
prostitution. Then the second day of
Ak-Sar-Ben I was again sent to that
detestable place, being removed to
the police station out of bed, where
I had been sick, having hemorrhage
of the lungs for several days, but was
compelled to dress and get in the
police patrol. That time I made up
my mind I would stay a reasonable
length of time, long enough any
way to get y blood cleared up if
they were capable of doing it.
Students to Mix Medicine
"I' took six shots of Sal-va-San
and nine shots of mercury and was
salavated from the mercury and air
my teeth broke off in smadl pieces
and the first two week's I suffered
day and night with them. The last
shot of Sal-va-San I took came very
near costing about 18 other girls
and myself our lives. . One of the
students mixed up the medicine and
in some way got the wrong kind
and Dr. Tomlison was called to
come back out there about two
hours after we were locked up. (I
judge it was about 10:30) and lie
brought a student with him and it
required the nurse, matron and the
two doctors to hold one "victim"
on the bed. They sat up with her
until 3 a. m. before she gpt quieted
down. Then they went to another
girl's bedside and knelt down and
prayed) or rather Miss Burger, the
nurse prayed), as the poor girl was
very low. Her name was Gussie
Burns, (white), the first was Mar
getta White, (colored).
Prohibit Private Doctors.
"The nurse came up to my room
once during the night and told my
room-mate and myself not to be
scared and asked did we want her
to bring a hypodermic up and I
said, 'No thanks, if I must die let
me be wide-awake.' We first had
a hard chill, then started burning
up with fever. I pray to God above
I'll never suffer again as I did that
night. Of course, nothing like
that ever was known to the public,
as no permits have been issued for
some time and it is strictly forbid
den for any private doctor to be ad
mitted for fear the truth will be
known as to conditions inside..
"Why don't the good people of
Omaha wake up and investigate?
I know there are lots of big hearted
people in this big city. But they
are blind to the fact of what is go
ing on right under their very noses.
There are 75 per cent of the people
or population of the United Mates
with syphilis in their blood -I for
one have scrofula, having inherited
it from my forefathers.
Placed on Display
"After remaining to take all my
shots for my blood at the detention
home I was still held and was not
allowed to come down town and see
about my clothes, therefore now it
being cold, I have had an awful hard
time trying to get sufficient clothes
to keep me warm.
"That place should come under
the head of a work house or human
ciog pond." There is nothing about
it that would be evident to prove it
to be any type of a hospital. 1
plead with the people of the pub
lic to stop this unlawful business.
"It is very miserable living in fear
of the law constantly, but I had
rather go through anything in pref
erence of being a subject on display
before five or six men and a nurse,
sometimes more. The doctors
change every few days, then new
ones come to learn and your 'so
called treatments are started as
the new doctor starts. It is a hard
proposition to explain."
