Cornhuskers Show Great Improve
ment Over Dakota Game.
Lincoln , Oct. 11. Nebraska trampled
over the speedy eleven from Knox col
lege at Antelope park Saturday , ex
hibiting much better form than a week
ago and scoring thirty-four points In
two bhort halves of twenty and twenty-
live minutes , while they kept the
Galesburg men fiom getting near their
The fumbling which proved so cost
ly In the game with South Dakota was
not in evidence , and the Cornhuskers ,
instead of suffering from fumbles ,
gained a great dea. as a result , of the
poor handling of the oval by the men
from Galesburg.
Nebraska's backlleld was a terror to
the Knox line and could not be re
sisted. Play after play , directed at
tackle and center , netted the Corn-
buskers good gains at almos.1 every
The wings of the visiting eleven
were skirted for many long gains.
Rathbono at fullback hammered the
line and smashed his way through for
several jnrds dining each half.
Frank , right halfback , who fumbled
in the South Dakota game , was again
the sensation , reeling off yard after
yard on ru'.is and drives at the line.
He wriggled and writhed his way
through the defense of the Galesburg
men. lie was tackled , slipped away ;
fell down , but got up and plowed on
for more yards. He followed his inter
ference , which on most occasions was
good , and proved a puzzle for the op
posing eleven all through the game.
In addition to his great offensive
plpying ho starred in the kicking de
partment , missing but two goals from
touchdowns and booting two success
ful goals from placement out of three
Although one or two glaring faults
were noticeable in the Nebraska line ,
for the most part the men there
played a good game. On the defense
they were invincible and the Knox
men did not once make down through
them. On the offense their work was
not what it will have to be in order to
give Minnesota a hard contest , but It
was much superior to that of the first
contest with South Dakota.
Concerning the Spinal Disease.
Tllden Citizen : So far as the writer
can recollect , this community has nev
er before experienced such alarm as
was caused by the first appearance of
the disease poliomyelitis which was
reported last week. That the epidem
ic , which first manifested itself in
New York and is gradually spreading
toward the Pacific , is serious , cannot
bo questioned ; and when once the dire
effects of the disease are appreciated ,
the public will justify radical methods
for the prevention of Its spread. Phy
sicians of long experience have been
baffled by the frequency of cases ,
largely from the fact that most medi
cal books agree that poliomyelitis is
not contagious. Scarcely a doctor can
bo found who has not treated or
known of , sporadic cases where per
manent paralysis has followed , but In
these Instances the disease has not
been considered more contagious than
rheumatism or toothache. The epi
demic form Is entirely a revelation
to physicians , consequently opinion
has been divided when the question of
public danger from the complaint has
been suggested.
The one case In Tildon led to the
closing of schools and churches , and
popular opinion on this official action
was about the same as on politics.
The school board and town trustees
were both commended and cursed as
n set of careful , conservative men and
a bunch of Idiotic fools.
Exaggerated Rumors.
The scare and exaggerated reports
that came to tpwn from various parts
of the Burroundlng country led man >
people In town to form the hast )
conclusion that the officials had acted
precipitately In the matter ; and the
writer , ns an outsider , must admit tc
the same Impression with some res
ervatlons. One lady who liven several
oral miles from town called up the Clt
Izun otllce about twenty-four hours nf
ter the schools wen ; closed , and nnx
lously asked : 'Is It true that yoi
have forty cases of this now dlseasi
In town ; and Is Tllden quarantined
so that If I come to town , I may have
to atay there for three weeks ? " Thcsi
questions were put In nil serlousncBt
and were the outcome of the will
stories which sprung from nobod )
knows where. Another Instance of tin
same kind : A lady In Tllden was ex
pectlng some eastern relatives to vlsli
at her home. She received a tolcphom
call from Norfolk on the day of theli
anticipated arrival , asking If It wouh
not , In the face of reports gathcrci
from a traveling salesman , be bettei
for the travelers to return to Now
York and defer the long looked foi
visit until nil danger of the pestilence
was passed.
Such ridiculous fears pouring InU
the cars of the men and women wlu
were cognizant of the actual facts concerning
corning the one case In Tllden natu
rally gave rise to some resentment
and the handiest recipients for sucl
feeling were naturally the public of
llctals whose authoritative action gav\
publicity to the one Isolated case o
the disease In the town.
AH soon ns Dr. Campbell was ap
prised of the presence of the case li
Tllden ho addressed letters of inqulrj
lo doctors in towns of the state when
the complaint has been reported a (
its worst. With the dostor's permts
slon and for the information of tl.e
public in this vicinity , the followlii }
replies are published at length :
Hear From Fremont
Fremont , Neb. , Oct. 3. Dear Doc
tor : Your letter of yesterday at hand
and In reply will say that I do no
believe poliomyelitis contagious , bu
possibly very infectious. We hold i
meeting of the doctors of Frcmon
and decided not to close schools ant
churches , but In all cases to quarantine
the families who became afflicted
This was also made Incumbent upoi
us by the State Board of Health. W <
have had fifteen or twenty cases , will
one death , and In most cases paralysli
of limbs. No new cases for a wool
or more. Respectfully.
E. W. Martin. M. D.
Valloy. Nob. . Oct. 4. Dear Doctor
In reply to your letter of the 2nd lust ,
will say that I am glad to tell you any
thing 1 may happen to know relative
to this so-called new disease. Onl ;
four cases have come under my ob
nervation ; one fatality. The child win
died I only saw once , and was enl ;
able , at that time to predict a possibl <
paralysis. I have since learned lha
the child died of the bulbar typo o
the trouble. As to its being conta
? ious , I think so. The best men nn
forced to concede that it is mildly so
I think it is a good plan to dismisi
school for at least a week or ten day :
where the trouble exists , before it hai
time to spread. Such action will bin-
no one and by so doing you may pos
-.Ibly prevent children from bocomlni
permanent cripples. Three cases om
a crossed paralysis , have occurred li
the same district of this town , on tin
same road and within a quarter o
a mile , but only one In each famll ;
has been affected , I asked the solio-i
board to cooperate with me and the ;
have been doing so. We have isolate !
our patients , and I have taken al
the precautions that I would observe
in diphtheria. I have been careful o
the bedding and the excreta of al
kinds , and while I have not maintained
a legal quarantine , yet It amount1
to the same thing. We have dls
mlsFed school for three weeks whore
the disease has shown itself , and lie
new ones have shown up ;
Fraternally yours.
J. C. Agee , M. I ) .
Stromsberg , Nob. , Oct. 4. Dear Dor
tor : Yours of the 2nd is just receivee
and I hasten to reply. Yes , we have
had a tevere epidemic of so-callee
meningitis here. I had the splna
fluid examined in a well known lab
oratory in Omaha , and the repeir
was meningitis ; consequently we
rnlli'd it so. We now have roasoi
to doubt that diagnosis , and I am o
the opinion that it is really pnllomyc
litis. I feel sine that no honobt elector
tor could have closely observed ou
epidemic without being convince !
that It is decidedly contagious , ane
some of our now books will bear u :
out In that conclusion. It Is , I an
sure , the most serious epidemic tha
has occurred In the state , boi-aus-
of Its well known crippling results
which are often worse than deatli
I believe it criminal not to quarantine
these cases , since an effective quaran
tine will stop the epidemic ; but al
cases must bo diagnosed early or a
least prevented from carrying the con
tagion to neighbors. The state boare
at first simply asked us to isolate tin
cases , as no legal provision had beei
made for quarantining them. But Im
mediately after the Fourth of July celebration
obration the number of cases in
creased rapidly , and on the 21st we
were authorized and commanded b ;
the state board to quarantine. Wi
then quarantined about seventy-five
homes without delay , and on Angus
12th our last case appeared in the city
Hardly a case in the country trlhutar ;
to our city has occurred since. Os
ceola has had the same experience
but the epidemic reached there latei
so that they could profit by our e >
porlence , and quarantined before the ;
had many cases , and It stopped a
once. Quarantining according to tin
regulations governing diphtheria wll
do the work , If It Is properly observed
and that was our first method , on ac
count of the largo number of case *
Later we enforceel absolute quarantine
which wo will also do in the futur
If we should have any more cases
Our chureht'B and schools wore closei
as long as we had a case In the vldnltj
We also kept the children on their owi
premises. I hope that this informr
tlon will be the moans of guardln
some defenseless child from paralysl
or death Yours truly.
C. A. Anderson. M. I ) .
Uphold Town Officials.
In consideration of these letters I
Is reassuring to know that no otho
cases have occurred In Tlldeii. an
that medical opinion leads strongly t
the belief that all danger from furthe
Infection has passed provided propc
precaution Is maintained , The pul
lie school will be reopened ou Moi
day , unlcHu the disease BDOWB Unolf
In some other place between now and
that time.
While ) poliomyelitis In KB epidemic
form IB u comparatively new ( | | HOIIHO
to most physicians , enough IB known
to establish the fact that the fatali
ties are about BX ! or seven per cent ,
the complete recoveries about three In
a hundred , and that ninety per cent
of the cases leave the victims para
lyzed In one ! or both lower limbs. In
the face of this appalling record , tin
most skeptical will agree that a strong
suspicion of the disease1 In the neigh
borhood IB Biifilclent cause for the adop
tion of precautionary measures , oven
If such mcaHiires prove ) ndvurso to the
. business Interests of the community.
I So far as the writer can ascertain ,
Ttlden and the surrounding connlr ;
have nothing to fear from the epl
elemlc ; the disease having boon con
fined to the one solitary homo.
Whether this good fortune IB directly
httrlbutablo to the Isolation of the case
and the closing of the schools and
churches will never bo known hut
In view of the experience of the three
towns referred to in the foregoing
letters , there Is little room left for
criticism of the officials who wore
responsible for the temporary lucem-
venlenco attendant upon the scare
which followed.
Republicans Name Ticket.
A republican caucus consisting of
Norfolk precinct , outside , and First ,
Second , Third and Fourth wards of
the city of Norfolk , was held at the
city hall Friday evening at 8 o'clock
and although the attendance watt
good , ou account of the voather cem-
dltions many who Intended to be pres
ent were absent and many were late
In coming. Two constables , two jus
tices of the peace , two assessors for
Norfolk city , one assessor for outside ,
ono road overseer were nominated.
The meeting was called to order by
Chairman Burt Mapes , Jack Koenlg-
stein acting as secretary. The follow
ing candidates were named , the com
mittee to fill all vacancies :
For justices of the peace C. F.
Eiseley , George C. Lambert
For constables G. F. Utlger , James
For road overseer Obed Raasch.
For precinct assessor Samuel
For city assessor W. H. Widaman.
For district assessor F. G. Coryell.
Another Store Is Burglarized.
Burglars entered the People's De
partment store some time after 9
o'clock last night and got away with
over $50 worth of jewelry consisting
of rings , bracelets , watch chains and
fobs , stick pins and society pliiB. The
' robbers also took a Blab of bacon and
hum.From the fact that the most val
uable jewelry was picked out by the
thieves , it Is thought they were fa
miliar with the store and it is thought
the robbery was committed by those
who have been doing other similar
work in the city in the past month.
Entianco was forced thiough a back
window. The lights In the store wore
burning all night. C. W. Mc.Masters ,
manager of the store , was out of the
city but returned at noon.
Says Weekes Must Pay Bill.
A judgment for $70.84 was secured
against W. H. Weekes in Justice Lam
bert's court Saturday morning by the
Press Publishing company for Job
block which was sold to Wceke-j last
January and for which ho ha'l never
I aid. Weekes confessed judgment
and. besides the full amount for which
ho was sued , will have to pay the costs
of suit , $0.30.
Suit was brought against W. H.md
Marie Weekes , but at Wookes' request
'the ' court dismissed the na-ne of Mrs.
\\eekes from the action. The easy
[ had been in court for somej months.
