South Side
Delays in Shipment and on
Market Thought to Be
Cause; Farmers Combat :
Trouble by Vaccination.
A hog disease which is not chol
era, and which has many of the
ymptoms of influenza, is spreading
ever Iowa, Nebraska and other
neighboring states, according to Dr.
If. Busman, head of the bureau of
animal industry. Dr. Busman is con
ducting rigid post-mortem, and ante
mortem examinations of all ship
rarmers are aware that siirh a
disease is prevalent," said Dr. Bus
man, "they have been warned not to
ship hogs affected with it. I believe
in many cases the hogs contract the
disease after leaving the premises
of the farmer. There are delays in
shipment, and more delays after they
reach the market, during which
conditions are not normal, and a
contraction of the disease is the re
sult. "Many farmers are combating the
disease by vaccination. I don't
know what results they get. The
sickness has been spreading for two
months. The hog is sick for a week
or two during which time it losses
much flesh. The disease, known as
hemorrhagic septicaemia, affects It
with high fever and fits of sneezing.
The hogs usually recover.
No statistics have been compiled
to show the effect on the Omaha
market. According to Dr. Busman
there was one day when eight to 10
loads were affected. Of each aver
ape load there is not more than
three per cent affected. In one or
two loads, however, as high as SO
per cent was affected.
Nine Face Vagrancy Charge
in South Side Police Court
Eight men and one woman were
arraigned in South Side police court
yesterday for vagrancy. All were
released on condition that they find
employment, except Samuel Palmer
and Elizabeth Diamond, negroes,
S014 South Twenty-sixth street,
who were sentenced to 90 dayaeaqh,
and Henry Pier. 2509 N Street, also
a negro, who was given 30 days.
Police Captain Madsen believes
that a war on vagrancy is the most
practical way of doing away with
crime. It is his theory that the
idle man is dangerous. As a result
of this policy there are few, if any,
unemployed men on the South Side.
To bear out his theory, the captain
points to a decided lull in burglaries,
stick-ups and con games during the
last month.
m HE BETTER 'OLE," the
J very successful comedy
made on the Bairnsfather
cartoons, will be presented at the
Brandeis for five nights, beginning
with February 16. This piece is the
sensation ot the New lork season.
Accompanying it is the well known
story of how it was offered to one
manager after another, without suc
cess; George M. Cohan thought it
might be made over into something
suitable to American tastes, and
even considered doing it. Charles
Coburn learned of it. and while the
wise men of Longacre Sauare de
bated on , how the piece could be
"jazzed up," he bought it and pro
duced it in his little neighborhood
theater down in Greenwich Village.
New York fell in love with Old Bill,
"Alf and 'Arrv. just as America fell
in love with the cartoons, and in a
few weeks the big managers were
after Coburn to move his company
up town. He took it to the Cort,
where it is delighting capacity audi
ences. Boston. Philadelphia, and
other eastern cities have laughed and
cried over it, and Omaha is to get its
chance while the play is yet fresh.
It will be one of the few current
season successes offered here.
If you have not laughed over the
gay frolics of the younger Foys,
who are appearing this week at the
Orpheum with their comedian fa
ther, Eddie Foy. this will remind
you that you have today and tomor
row left to make seat reservations.
Of the two featured acts, one is of
fered by the charming vocalist.
Helen Trix, assisted by her songful
sister, Josephine. Another is the
amusing nonsense of the jolly jes
ter, Walter Brower. There is a dog
act which is especially well liked
by children.
Three more performances will be
given at the Boyd of the current
week's bill, "The Confessions of a
War Bride." It is a touching story
of love and sacrifice, well told, with
plenty of comedy to relieve the high
tension. On Snnday afternoon The
Unmarried Mother" will open a
week's stay, both being offered at
poular prices.
Police and Soldiers Required
to Keep Back the Crowds;
Large Assortment
on Display.
Three hours before the doors
opened on the second White Ele
phant sale at the Auditorium at
noon, doormen and soldiers had to
be stationed at all entrances to keep
out the eager shoppers.
When the doors swung. open at 1
o'clock, crowds made a bee-line for
the children s clothing booth, with
the same unerring instinct which
carried them to this booth last year.
In anticipation of the demand, Mrs.
N. P. Dodge and Mrs. William Hill
Clarke this year gathered an extra
large amount of children's clothing.
Stocks will be replenished each
day of the three-day sale, officers of
the National League for Woman's
Service announce. Donations will
be accepted until the last hour be
fore the sale closes.
The restaurant on the Auditorium
stage is in charge of Mrs. L. T.
Healey. Chicken dinner at 50
cents, sandwiches, home-made pies
and cakes and coffee will be served.
Dancing is the special attraction
each night of the sale. Saturday
night wilt be the big auction.
Policemen, plain clothes men and
soldiers will, mingle through the
crowds. A wrapping and checking
system has also been installed to
do away with thee onfusion of last
"Half of our stock last year went
out of this building with no means
of knowing whether it was paid for
or not," one of the members re
marked. The picture booth and the one for

"The Greatest Thing in Life,"
which has been at the Strand all
of this week, will be held over there
for the remaining two days because
of the fact that there are thousands
of Omaha film fans who have been
unable to see it. It is one of D. W.
Griffith's masterpiece productions,
not as large as "Hearts of the
World" and some of his previous
pictures, but having in all the fine
points of production which made
the others such successes. Some of
the battle scenes in the short part of
it, which carries the war scenes, are
actual photographs of the famous
battle of the Marne. ' v
Theda Bara in "The Light" at
the Sun this week plays a part
which is of interest to all Omahans
just at this time her role being
that of a wicked woman who is
regenerated and becomes a model
of virtue and self-sacrifice in place
of a waster. It is a problem play
and one that proclaims to the world
in her own inimitable manner Miss
Bara's belief that there is a place
for a woman who has sinned, pro
vided she is given an opportunity
to lead a better life. Another point
that has interested many patrons in
Theda Bara this week is the an

theme of the scenario is of a de
voted wife who sees her husband
interested in a woman who believes
that she is his 'affinity. But the
wife is clever enough to know the
weakness of hubby and she invites
the affinity to spend the week-end
with them. And then she pretends
to break her ankle and the work
of the strange woman in the house

The photoplay, "The Shepherd of
the Hills," now playing at the Bran
deis, is made from the novel of the
same name by Harold Bell Wright
The actress engaged for the part of
"Sammy Jane is an expert horse'
woman. Mr. Wright selected a
young woman who was born in
Arizona, and was practically raised
in the saddle. In the picture, the
scenes of "Sammy's" wild night
ride down the mountain side when
she rides through the lightning and
rain to save the good old Shepherd
from the lawless Wash Gibbs gang,
the spectator is shown, very clear
ly, why Mr. Wright emphasized the
point that this actress must know
how to ride horseback. This scene
is one of the most thrilling ever
seen upon the screen.
