ORDERS FROM HEADQUARTERS Movement of the Sixth C T lry to GnrrUon Department of the Mlinonrl Telegraphic advices from Washington to the army headquarters In this city announce that the Sixth cavalry Is to bo transferred from Huntsvlllc , Ala. , Its present station , to .he Department ot the Missouri. Thla action is made necessary by the departure of the nfantry regiments from this department for the Philippines. Men will bo needed to guard the post property , and others are re quired , In the interest , of safety , to be sta tioned at frontier posts. The Sixth will be divided among the southern forts In this de partment , and "the " First cavalry , which Is now occupying stations at some of these torts , will bo moved to the northern posts. Four companies of the Sixth cavalry and headquarters will be stationed at Fort Riley , four troops at Fort Loavenworth , two troops at Fort Still , and two troops at Port Reno. The orders contemplate the movement ot the troops at once , but the transportation will probably bo arranged for at St. Louis. Four stroops of the First cavalrr are now at Fort Illloy , and one troop is at Fort Still. It is expected at army headquarters that these will be ordered at ones to the north ern poets. A portion of them will be sta tioned at Fort Crook In the event of the removal of the Twenty-second , and the rest ot the regiment will be divided among other posts In this state and South Dakota to be convenient In event of Indian trouble. There Is one troop of tbo First now at Fort Nlo- brara , and another at Fort Robinson. This I force will be doubled. The probate time of the moving of ithe cavalry IB not known at headquarters , but It la expected within a day or two. Department Note * . First Lieutenant Richard P. Strong , as sistant surgeon of the Second artillery , who hae been ordered to Fort Crook to join the Twenty-second , Is said to be one of the new appointees to the service. Ills name does not appear In the official register and none of the , officers at headquarters know htm. Captain W. H. Beck , inspector general ot the department , has returned from an In spection tour. He looked over the Twelfth Infantry at Jefferson Barracks , under orders to proceed to Manila , and the Twentieth ai Fort Leavenworth , under similar orders , and reports both regiments in excellent shape He eays they have a large number of re cruits , but the new men are being drilled nil the time , and are rapidly being put into condition. He reports the regiments as being "beautifully equipped , " some of the companies having as many as sixty new guns. Both organizations , he says , would leave on their long journey recruited up to the limit , while in each case recruits woufi have to be left behind to be attached to other regiments. It is announced from Leavenworth that the commandant at the post there has received word from Ban Fran elsco that the Scandla will nebo bo ready to sail before January 16 , which moans that the Twentieth Infantry win noi leave Fort Leavenworth before January 10. The regimental recruiting office * for the Twentieth Infantry have been ordered closec as the regiment now has more men than I can handle. Other recruiting stations bavi been ordered not to forward any more men to that post. The full strength of the regl ment Friday afternoon WM 1,396 officers and men. J. H. , Rellly , Is acting n chief alark to th adjutant gene'ral during the Iflness of E. J Davis , whose absence on account of sick ness has been more prolonged than ex pected. The quartermaster's office looks upon the tlds by the railroads for the transportation of the Twentieth Infantry to San Francisco as reasonable. The rate Is Hi per cent per mile for each person. It will require forty tourist sleepers , three standard sleepers , throe baggage cars and fifteen freight cars to accommodate the regiment. No horses win be taken as the order permitting thla privilege to mounted officers has been re voked. The employes In the army headquarters will not have the customary holiday for i Christmas. There Is so much work to be done Just now that the time cannot bo spared , and even Sunday Is apt to find many of the officer * at work. Lieutenant Colonel Koerper , surgeon In this department , says his record shows there Is also a Fred Taylor In the Thurston Rifles as private , and thinks It might be this one who Is referred to In the dispatch from Manila. There is nothing In the medlcar j record to show where the man lived at the time of his enlistment. "It Is the beat medicine we ever had In the house. " Thnt Is what A. J. Spnuldlnp , a prominent merchant at Center Road , Pa. , i says of Chamberlain's Cough remedy. "It Is the only remedy , " he says , "that ever , gave my little boy In croupous attacks per manent relief. I would not think of being without It. as ft Is worth mnny times Its : cost In saving needless doctor bills. " Chilian , oil Their Dlirnlty. NEW YORK , Dee. 24. A dispatch to the Herald from Valparaiso says ; Deputy Jordan , during the session yesterday , made the following motion : "That the Chamber would be pleased If the new Chilian min i- ister to Argentina did not start to assume hU position until the Argentine government gives explanations about the Insults made to former Minister Walker by an Argentine army officer In that territory. " The min ister for foreign affairs declared that the Aregnttne government was Investigating the matter and that therefore It was not ad visable to pajs the motion until the In vestigation was ended. The motion was re jected by 32 to 17. CHEAP HELP FOR HUNGRY MEN What the AdventUta * Mission House in Omaha io Doing. THREE MEALS FOR THIRTEEN CENTS Clonn , Wholennmc Food KnrnlNhed for Nomlnnl Cn t or NntlilttK , n the Individual In Able to 1'nr or Xot , Three good meals for a total of 13 cents s not a result of exposition competition , but s the average price paid by the patrons of the penny lunch conducted by the Christian Help Mission In this city. The mission is at 1515 Hurt street , nnd it not only feeds the hungry at a nominal cost , but feeds many of them without price. It also furnishes them beds at an expense ot 10 cents a night. The Christian Help Mission Is another of the charitable Institutions of this city. It ts nominally supported by the Seventh Day Advontlsts , but receives a large per cent of its donations from charitably disposed people In this city , regardless of denominational affiliation. One of Its features Is to help that class of poor and unfortunate whose prldo will not permit them to beg for alms , by placing wholesome food within their reach at a price they can pay , which Is so small as to bo almost nothing , yet re lieves tbo service from the taint of alms giving. The mission was established about a year ago by Elder Howard , a missionary of the Adventlst faith , who superintended Its work until about six months ago , when he left It to go Into the field preaching. Mrs. Howard Is still at the mission. She was the flrst cook the institution had , and taught the others who succeeded her. After Elder Howard left Elder L. W. Warren came and took charge ot the place. Ho had been engaged in the missionary field In Chicago until he came to Omaha. Ho Is the present superintendent ; During the year it has been In existence the mission has grown from the ample ac commodations of two ordinary rooms to the crowded conditions existing now In a three- story brick building , with basement , and the flrst apd second floors of the adjoining building , also brick. It needs more room , but cannot get It just now in its present location. Training School Attachment. There ore about twelve people attached to the mission now In the way of employes , and only two or three of thorn are paid any thing for their services , and In these cases the remuneration is trifling. Some of the attaches are attendants upon the training school conducted at the mission. This school teaches the simple methods of treating the sick , enabling the student to go among the poor and extend relief In cases not sufficiently serious to necessitate the at- tentlon of a physician. They are also taught the principles of health food , or as Elder Warren said , the gospel of soul and body , on the theory that it was as essential to care for the health as to care for the soul. During holiday week a corps of nurses from the sanitarium at Battle Creek , Mich. , ( which seems to be somewhat of a parent to the Institution here ) , will come to Omaha to give special Instruction In this training school. Several people in the city who are not attached to the mission have signified their intention of attending this school to help them In their prlvato work among the poor. Later on a similar school will be held down town , where It may be moro easily attended by the general public. Gospel meetings are held in the library of the mission every evening , conducted by the superintendent , who Is assisted by all of the attendants. They have a email organ , and the music Is made a feature of the meetings. The lodgers at the mis sion usually attend these services in a goodly number , and outsiders are observed In the audlenco every night. It Is be lieved by the management that these meet ings have been productive of great good. But the charitable work Is not confined to the mission. Deserving coses brought to the attention of the ofllclals receive atten tion In accordance with the ability of the mission to provide. The Institution has not received a great deal of help from the people of the city. Most of Us donations come from those out In the state , generally from communities where Advcntlsts are lo cated. The mission sends out its nurses to attend the sick where the ailment Is not of a serious character. They serve eolely as nurses In more serious cases. It dis tributes food and clothing among the needy , and could advantageously distribute more If It had It. Elder Warren ald the mis sion would willingly act as the distributing agent for any of the people of the city who did not dcslro personally to engage In the work , and would glvo an account of the service rendered. nefune for Poor Men. But aside from the things mentioned the important work ot the mission is to pro vide a temporary home for poor men lookIng - Ing for work. It turns away none from Its doors. While the charges hardly merit the name of "price. " yet If a man appears there without money ho is provided for If ho be willing to pay for his accommoda tions by helping around the mission. If ho has a trad they try In some way to utilize that , otherwise he Is put to general tasks. As an example of this. If a man calls there whoso shoe la without a sole , a shoemaker Is Improvised out of some of the men and the deficiency Is supplied. The dining room and reading room occupy the same apartment. It Is a large room , and with the present patronage one does not Interefere with the other. An abundance of newspapers and good books and periodicals are always on hand for the use of the patrons and a large steve keeps the room comfortable. A large room back of the office Is used for sleeping apartments. It Is filled with Iron cots two stories high , all nicely painted white. " These cots are made by the men at the mission. Each cot has a mattress , sheets , pair of blankets , H heavy comforter' , and a small pillow. The be < lclnthlng Is ; kept clean and every other day Is thoroughly fumigated. The lodger Is furnished a clean nightshirts , and he must check his wearing ' apparel before retiring to prevent possible loss. If the lodger has a suspicious look as i : to cleanliness or his clothes should be of * doubtful purity , the former Is given a bath and the latter Is fumigated. These require ments arc made mandatory. Sometimes a man will come there for ac commodations who brings with him what In common parlance Is called a jag. He Is put under a shower bath of cold water. Sometimes this requires more than oral persuasion , but it Is accomplished at any cost , and the managers Insist they always send these men to bed sober. This bath is free to any who wish it , and an average of twenty baths a day are furnished , Warm water 1s used also , the cold being only forced on those who have been toying with a Jug. IlciU In the Ilimement. The basement of one section of the build ing Is also filled with cots. This does not 1 stem to be the most healthful place for sleeping purposes , but It is clean and the cots here are not used except In a rush sea son and the price does not permit of much choice In location. In the rear of the base i. ment Is the bath. In one corner Is a large ' storeroom where clothing ls kept which has been sent to the mission far distribution among the needy. In another part of the , basement is an enclosure used for fumlgat-1 ; I Ing. U Is guaranteed that half an hour's exposure In this room will kill every disease germ which may Infect any article of clothing. In the rear of the dining room and library la the kitchen , the really Interesting part of the mission. Here everything Is scrupulously clean , nnd as the day of the reporter's visit was on Friday , the attaches of the culinary department were busy pre paring enough food to tide over Saturday , which Is the Sabbath of the Advcntlsts. In this department two men are employed who arc paid what might bo termed wages , but the sum Is ridiculously small , the men being Eulllclcntly Interested In the work to look upon their pay as a matter of minor Im portance. Hero is where the penny lunch Is pre pared. To begin with no meats are served. Ther are at least two reasons for this. The i flrst 1s they are beyond the reach of so I modest n lunch ; and the second Is thnt I Adventists ' arc something of vegetarians. It I ! Is ' not a requirement of the faith , but Is j suggested as desirable. The mission puts up soups , such as bean and pen , without the meat flavor. , . It prepares parsnips , pens , beans , nuiccaropl , , sqtfosh , .potatoes , beets , sweet potatoes , tomatoes , .corn , rice , celery , baked apples , pudding , pie and other articles. ! I It also serves eggs , but these cost 2 cents 1 | each , In any style , because the purchase , price ' Is that much. All 'the cereal foods are j i served , nnd grape , apple nd prune sauce find a place on the menu. Bananas , dates , _ apples nnd other fruits can bo had there , although the mission loses money on Its apples. Dines a IR Cnrtr. A menu Is posted on the wall of the dining room , and the patron selects what he desires. Ho makes his wants known at a window opening Into the kitchen , where ho Is furnUhMl with a tray. The articles he wants for his meal are given him , and ho then goes to another window aniT pays the price , which Is a penny for each Item he has ordered. When he concludes his meal ho returns the service to the kitchen. Many other edibles can bo had there be sides those mentioned In the list. Throe larco slices of bread are given for 1 cent. Two slices of nice toast cost 1 cent , and a cup of hot milk Is 1 cent more , whereby one's milk itonst will cost 2 cents. All the bread used Is made at the mission. A large amount of pure food preparations , cereal coffees , crackers of all kinds , nut foods , grain biscuits , nnd such articles are con sumed , all of which arc purchased at whole- said , and'at greatly reduced prices. In fact most of the groceries consumed are bought at wholesale , and only high grade articles arc used. When these things nro bought , they nro weighed , and an estimate made of how much can bo given to a 1-cent , portion. Notwithstanding these prices , the revenue from the dining room , BO the management said , equals the expense of the kitchen , ex cept cc for what Is given away. The shortage each ct week represents the amount of dona tlons t to those who haven't even the penny with which ot pay , and this shortage Is made up by donations by parties 'Interested In i the work. On the upper floors of the building are the living apartments of the employes , and other sleeping rooms of a higher order which arc ranted for 25 cents to those who care to pay that price for ithelr accommodations. CioU It * Water Free. The mission receives concessions from most of 'the corporations In .the . city , which assist It in doing its work , and the water company donates the water free. Wcro It not for this donation , the management said , the work could not be carried on at all. The business manager for the mission Is A. S. Balrd , and hla wlfo is the matron. They came from Fremont a few d ys ago to take charge of the work , and virtually donate their services to the cause. Mr. Batrd said the mission furnishes food and lodging to an average of about forty men a night.
