LOUISE ROYCE'S ' SAD CASE. _ Eor Exposure Results in Crippling Her For Life. TO LOSE BOTH FEET AND AN ARM. Over Five Thousand Dollars In the "Bco" Fund FOP the Three llrave Toachpps The Roll of Honor. Mian ROJCO'B Condition. The following telegram received at 3 o'clock ycstenlny afternoon explains itself : Nonroi.K , Neb. , Feb. 4. [ Spcciul Telegram to the Hun. ] I have just hud au interview with Dr. Menr , who returned from Pluluvlew this morning. Ho stated that utter a careful examination ho became satlsllcd that it would be necessary to amputate both of Miss Iloyce's feet. Onu foot was almost entirely frozen and the llcsh Is sloughing ott from the toes , forefoot and heel , und it will Imvo to bo amputated above the ankle Joint , in order to give her a peed stump on which to pluco an nrtltlciul limb. The other foot i-i frozen and sloughing oft as fur up us the instep , while a great piece of frozen llcsh has sloughed oft from one side of the heel. The doctor thinks the ankle joint afld heel of this foot may bo saved. In addition to this Miss Iloyeo will p.irtially lose the. use of ono hand us her arm was fro/en just above the wrist , and here the flesh i.s alhO sloughingotT. lr. Hear will return on Monday to perform the operation and will invite Den. Kelluy or Husson of the Norfolk asylum und Dr. Alden of Plerco to accompany him. The operation will bo performed on Tuesday. The doctor stated that Miss Hoyco's recital of her experience during the terrible night is truly a pitiful ono , two of her little charges dying in her urmn and tins last remaining ono pleading through the night for inoro covering to keep her warm. Miss Uojco's is Indeed ono of the greatest cases of heroism in mod ern times. MIsH Hoyuo's AftUution. The neoplo of Nebraska will earnestly re gret the. misfortune of Miss Louise Uoyeo. The suffering of this joung lady , the result of many hours exposure to the cold , havu been givut , yet her physicians had given her hope that all her limbs would bo spared. The announcement that the surgeons had de termined upon the amputation of her feet is a sud blow to the expectations of friends and the most sangnlno holies of the young teacher. The sad tale of MUs Koyeo's cx- uerienco during the storm is well known. In uu effort to save the lives of thieo pupils she herself was so badly frozen that for u time her life was despaired of. Later it was bollovcd that no permanent injury would result from her exposure. Now conies the sad Intelli gence that the bravo girl must lese both foot and an arm. The regret at this turn of affairs will bo universal. If the per fect sympathy of n kind and generous pco- plo can sustain this bravo and suffering girl she will bo nblo to pass through her hour of trial. The contributions to the Royce fund have been permitted to full behind fn the endeavor to provide for Miss Shuttuck. The jwoplo of Nebraska are reminded that Miss Royeo'8 additional misfortune calls for u moro liberal contribution to the fund for her benollt. Many who have not contributed can rend' lly afford a mite for this unfortunate and deserving girl. Mis * Slinttuck'ii Condition.

The offer of the Omaha Carriage und Sleigh The New York Life's Nebraska Interests , The company's operations in Omaha and Nebraska are almost identical with those of a state company. By this is meant that the NEW YORK LIFE'S invcstment'in ' Omaha alone will amount to nearly ONE MILLION OF DOLLARS , and that it will be a long time beforb the profits on business done in this state snail amount to the unv total that the company will have invested. In other words , money paid to this company will not only remain in the state , biit goto enrich ahdennoble it , as well. A grand and most practical illustration of this is shown in the above cut of the NEW YORK LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY'S building , which is now in course of construc tion. The building will cost ground and all Ninq Hundred Thousand Dollars. It will have a basement and sub-basement , and be ten stories in height and one hundred and thirty-two feet square.

Saxo , in the Opera house pharmacy , opened his most beautiful und marvellous soda fountain , with its concomitant of mixed , pure , healthful and invigorating drinks , and announced that ho would ( five to the BKK'S heroine fund ono- hulf of his receipts of the evening. The fountain wus litesully surrounded for four hours with eager patrons with the dual mo tive of enjoying the elegant .draughts and contributing to the relief of the bravo girls who have achieved imperishable renown. Mr. Saxo wan us good as fits word , and to-day Bent to the BEE his check for $25.50 , as one- half of his $51 receipts of his fountain's open ing night. The Secret Orders. OMAHA , Feb. 4. To the Editor of the BEE : When I saw in the columns of the BEE the donations of Mt. Shasta lodge , No. 71 , and Nebraska lodge , No. 1 , Knights of Pythias of Omaha , to the BUB fund for the Misses Shat tuck , Royce und Freeman , whoso well known bravery has brought honor to themselves , their profession und our state , I felt proud of membership in that order and especially proud that my own lodge , Nebraska No. 1 , had boon Iho first to follow the noble exum- plo of our sister lodge , Mt. Shasta No. 71. While the steel panoply und deeds of war of the knights of old do not remain with those of modern times , I am sure that courage and duo appreciation of deeds of bravery uud de votion to duty In the unpretending und often obscure wulks of private life , as well us in public life , or oven ou the ' 'tented Held , " still glitter on our helmets nmong the brightest jewels Inherited from our wuriior ancestors. Wo have now before us , In three heroic 3 oung school teachers of Nebraska , un example - ample of rare bravery und devotion to duty such us should rouse the heart of every man , especially if ho pretends to bear worthily the proud title of knight , to prompt cncrgotio and effective action in aiding to rescue those young girls from the disastrous results of their splendid und heroic devotion to duty. Let every lodge of the order of the Kulghts of Pythias hasten to follow the exainplo of Mt. Shasta No. 71 , und Nebraska No. 1 , of Omaha. Substantial recognition of such heroism is not nslced of you simply in performunco of duty , but is placed before you us u pleasure , the pleasure of doing good , uud I trust no lodge will bo found thinking itself too poor to do reverence to these examples of bravery. No man is top iwor to hud some money for what ho considers un object of pleasure , und I soy to you , that while what U asked is un deniably jour knightly duty , it is etpjully a pleasure. I feel us though the knight whose heart fails to leap to warmest enthusiasm , and whoso hand does not promptly proffer such donation us his moans will permit In this worthy cause , does but slender honor to his noble title. For the Knights of Pythias to eagerly avail themselves of this rare op- iwrtuuity to place the numo of our order con spicuously upon this ' 'roll of honor" would bo alike un appropriate and graceful action. Let each lodge send in at least f.10 or WO. If so much is not found In the exchequer of the lodge , let individual knights' furnish what may bo lacking , by pot sonal donations. If the amounts named cannot bo thus raised , raise what is possible , but let each ledge do something. Donations should be sent to the Omaha daily UKE with specific orders Q as to whether they urn to go to the "Shattuok special fund , " "Shat tuck genernj fund , " "Hoyco fund" or "Free man fund. " While no distinction can bo made between the Misses Shattuok , Royce or Freeman , in point of merit , because each of the.se noble young girls did her whole duty nobly and bravely , yet attention U moro cs- peclally called , and donations uro moro largely flowing into tha Shattuck special und the Shattuck general funds. This arises from the fact , that while the other two PS- cu | > od fortunately witu no permanent Injury , Miss Shattuck did not. In consequence of the delay -asioned by her efforts in sue- cvssfully looking after the safety of the little scholars under her rare , she was loft to en counter alone the diru penis of that frightful storm. Partially sheltered in a hole in a hay slock , which her rapidly falling strength prevented her from making deep enough for complete shelter , her feet and limb * were loft partially exposed , and for seventy-eight hours this frail young girl bore the full furv of the worst storm of snow und wind thut has ever swept the prairies of Nebraska , As a consequence she had to submit to the am putation of both limbs just below the knees , and now lies nt her homo helpless and suffer ing. Besides being thus incupuciatcd from earning nor own living , her gentle heart is wrung with anxiety for the future of her used parents , who depend upon her labor for support. Just think of it , brother knights , who , by your profession , ndmlro and emulate acts of bravery and unselfish devo tion to duty I Think 'of this young girl sev enty-eight hours out In this frightful storm- more than three days and nights und now both lower limbs gone. Remember that this did not result from the pursuit of selfish pleasure or the effort to accomplish merely selfish ends , but from her delay in securing her own safety , that she might accomplish , as she did , the escape of the little scholars under her care. Of the three great secret fra ternities of the day , the Knights of Pythias were the ttrst to step to the front , artd , under the leadership of Mt. Shasta Ledge , No. 71 , of Omaha , speedily followed by Nebraska Lodge , No. 1 , of the same place , they have placed the name of our order in shining let ters on this "roll of honor. " See to it that the glory does not rest with these two lodges. Let each ledge in Nebraska and each Knight of Pythias , through his lodge , send some thing , bo it moro or leas. Hemombcr , brother knights , it Is not the amount , but the giving. which justifies your right to bear the proud title of knight , and uct now , that future regret may not tinge your checks with the blush of un Ignoble shame. Look well to your laurels , brother knights , for you do not wear them undisputed. The magnanimous order of the Knights Templar huvo entered the field , led by Jordan Commandory , No. 15 , of Blair , with a liberal gift , and the valiant Knights of the Temple' never do things by halves. Nay , more , I hear the tramp of the van guard of another mighty host approaching the Held of noble und generous contention , for the muster Ma sons of the Blue lodge , urousod by the "con tagion thut is in the uir , " havu entered the urenu under the leadership of St. John's Ledge , No. 2.1. of Omaha , taking u $ .10 shnro in the ? fi,000 Shattuck special fund , besides liberal donations to the Misses Koyco and Freeman. The Independent Order of Odd Fellows will not bo left behind In this "battlo of the gods ; " they , too , will soon bo "In the thickest of the light , " striving no less en thusiastically than the rest to do good and generous deeds. A noble und generous strug gle is before you , brother knights , for you moot foemen "worthy of your steel. " Brace on your bright armor of friendship , which protects friend from foe , lot your bare weap ons glitter in the sunshine of generous char ity und sympathetic benevolence , fling your bright bunnors to the bieezes of u manly yet friendly emulation ns to which order shall do the * most In a noble cause , and show the world that the Knfehts of Pythias can never bo loft In the rear when1 the fallen and suffering are to bo raised uiuUcomforted , und thut secret societies do , fur , more than pass evenings in their ledge rpoma practicing mysterious rites. f Jens J. MONKI.I. . Cronn. SIIEXA.NDO.UI , jla. , Feb. 2.
