"Medieval and Modern History," by
Munro ft Whltcomb Is as strong a text
book for high schools as any which has
recently come to our notice. The student
of economic and sociology will find this
volume well qualified to lay a firm foun
dation for a study of present-day social
problems. Tha "book Is compact but Its
construction, and tha methods the author
haa used In his presentation of matortal,
throw out to students constant hints for re
search, and stimulate even the general
reader to take advantage of the references
at tha end of each chapter.
The author has brought the particular
problems which each nat.on has still to
solve down to the very ev of the twen
tieth century, and closes by contrasting
the opportunities now open to all classes
of society with the scant advantages of
former times. The Source Reviews ap
pended to each chapter are quotations or
adaptations from varloua histories and
other books. In order to draw especial at-,
tentlon to men and women mentioned in
preceding pages, to political, social and
eoonomlo problems and movementa, to dis
tinctive characteristics of the governments
or countries under consideration, and to
the views of great philosophers and his
torians. Published by D. Appleton & Co.
"A General History of Commeroe," by
William Clarence Webster Ph. D., lecturer
on economlo history In New Tork univer
sity. In hla preface the author says: "1
hare tried to tell the story of commerce
in a systematic manner. In order that the
reader may get clear cut and accurate pic
ture of the commercial growth and de
cay of separata nations, and an under
standing of the forces. Industrial, racial
and climatic, which have contributed to the
steady expansion of the world's trade."
The subject of commerce Is of vital sig
nificance in this country, and li response
to a popular demand, Is given a place In
the curricula of our high schools and col
lege, his book Is divided Into parts corre
sponding with familiar chronological di
visions of the world's history. Part I,
Ancient Commerce: part II, Medieval
Commerce; part III, Early Modern Cpm-
merce; part IV, The Age of Steam; part
V, The Age of Electricity. The book may
be used as a text beek or as a companion
to the text books. At the end of each
chapter are references to tho best litera
ture accessible. There are numerous maps
and Illustrations. Olnn at Co., are the pub
lishers. F. N. Sommer of Newark. N. J., has
gotten a very useful compendium of In

"Sorhmer'e Newspaper Manual," which
makes an attractive bound volume of more
than too pages. In addition to the lists of
best advertising media. It presents a num
bar of excellent papers on subjects of vital
Interest to the advertiser and condensed
historical sketches of the principal Ameri
can newspapers. It la almost needless to
not that The Bee occupies a prominent
place In the compilation and Is recognised
a "on of the great newspapers of the
United State" whose utterances are widely
quoted. The author also aptly- declares
with special reference to The Be that the
beat papers for the advertiser, as for
reader and the general public, are those
that constitute a power and command an

CORPORATIONS PRODUCE NO TESTIMONY
Board After Hearing the Evidence
tart In on Night Session to
Deride What it Will Do
In the Matter.
Thursday wa the closing day of the ten
days' session of ths Board of Review. From
I a. m. until 6 p. m., with the exception of
the lunch hour the board waa busy listen
ing to testimony and considering state
ments made by corporation attorneys.
Mr. Koutsky waa on the stand the greater
portion of the afternoon and In reply to
questions from his attorney gave out a
number of facts and figures concerning the
packing Industry In South Omaha, along
with what he considered a conservative
valuation of the personal and real property
of the corporations against which com
plaints had been filed. Some of the testi
mony of Mr, Koutsky was decidedly
amusing while portions were entirely too
serious to be laughed at.
Attorneys for the corporations subjected
Mr. Koutsky to a most thorough examina
tion and his replies to questions asked
showed that he had made a study of valuer,
particularly of corporations, for a number
While the corporations did not refute by
testimony the charges filed by Mr. Koutsky,
the attorneys representing the packers and
the stock yards company made statements
to the board to the effect that the valua
tions, a compared with 1902, had been
raised, and they thought the Increase made
last year waa sufficient to hold for a time.
Therefore they considered the figures re
turned by Tax Commissioner Fltsgerald
for 1901 wer entirety too high. It was
practically admitted by these attorneys that
lf th valuation was made the same this
year as it was In 1902 no remonstrance
would b made.
Vain of Stock Yards,
When the case against the stock yards
waa called Mr. Koutsky was not examined.
His place on the witness stand was taken
by L. A. Davis, one of the stockholders of
the company. Under examination con
ducted by Mr. Lambert, Davis stated thnt
he owned sixty shares of stock in the yards.
He asserted that the stock was worth over
$100 a share and that the stock was all
paid up. As for dividends Mr. Davis de
clared that he received at least 6 per cent
Interest annually on his stock. Further
he stated that he would not sell his stock
for $100 a share. In fact he did hot care
to part with It at all
Mr. Lambert then asked the witness what
was the amount of the last check he re
celved from the yards company. Before
an answer could .be made Davis received
a hunch to shut up. From that time on
his memory failed him and no further in
formation of Importance was secured.
All of the proceedings were taken down In
shorthand by an Omaha court reporter and
a record will thus be made in case it be
comes necessary to refer to It later. The
members of the board made minutes as the
Important points in the testimony were
brought out for the purpose of refreshing
their minds at the meeting held last night
when the valuations were equalised,
Under the law no complaints could be
heard about t p. m., and so shortly after
thta hour the board adjourned for dinner,
At T p. m. the board met In the council
chamber- and proceeded to go over the
complaint. . ' first It was the intention
to takv u recess until today but both City
Attorney Murdoek and C. C. Lambert, the
attorney representing Joseph Koutsky, con
sidered that it would be better to hold
night session and finish up th work hi the
time allowed by law
After remaining In executive session for
five hours the board took a recess at mid
night for lunch. It was stated at this hour
that the consideration of the valuation of
th packing houses and stock yards would
be tsken up again after lunch and that the
session would most likely last until nearly
High School Improvements,
Going on the supposition that the high
school bond voted at Tuesday's special
election can b old, the Board of Educa
tlon Is making preparations for securing
plans for a building. Dana Morrill, presl
dent of th board, said yesterday that
architects would be asked to submit plans
subject to' approval by the board. Mr,
Morrill figure that after the request has
been made by the board It will take arch!
tects fully six weeks to prepare plan.
Then some time will naturally be taken
by the board in going over the plans, lf
any are submitted on the basla proposed
by the board. Next will come advertising
for bids from contractors. All of these
preliminaries will take time and the
chance are that it will be well along In
the fall before construction work can com
Further, Mr. Morrill stated that the plans
of Architect L. A. Davis, for which the
school district ha o far paid $1,900. will
not be considered by the present board, al
though formally accepted by a former
board. Mr. Morrill considers that the Davis
plans ar entirely too expensive, alleging
that to construct the building on these
plana would mean an expenditure of not
less than $160,000.
Th suggestion has been made to some
of the members of the board that it might
be wise to wait and see if the bonds can
be floated before going to any great ex

with favorable weather the outside walls

cording to the contract the building Is to

th council could scrape up enough money
to pay the Judges and clerks who served

Despondent because of Ill-health, Flts
hugh John, better known as John Peter
son, committed suicide some time after 11
Wednesday night by shooting himself
through the heart. The tragedy occurred
in tha tannery of O. R. Gilbert, 1124 South
Thirteenth street. The body waj found by
Mr. Gilbert at 9:30 yesterday morning.
Coroner Bralley was notified and will hold
an inguc.it, probably Friday.
Peterson had made careful preparations
before shooting himself. Upon a long shelf
along the north side of the building he had
made a bunk of dressed hides and appar
ently to keep the blood from staining these,
over them he had placed a laprobe. lie
then got Into the bunk and covered the
lower portion of his body with a horse
blanket. These were all in place when the
body was found, except the cover, whlc'h
had been s'.lghtly disarranged, showing
that the man had struggled some after the
shooting. The right arm of the suicide was
over the top of the head and the left arm

position of the latter arm It Is presumed
that Peterson held the revolver to his heart

Peterson was about 33 years of sge, un
married, and came to Omaha from St. Paul
three years ago to work in the Gilbert
taanery. For the last three weeks he had
been feeling sick and did no work. He

he had been employed and that was the
last seen of him alive. When the body was

the arrival of the coroner. A hole was
torn in the man's left breast and the blood
had clotted on his undershirt. He was
fully dressed with the exception of a shirt

WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY
Lady Henry Somerset Is at lssl regaining
her strength after the teaious Illness that
prevented her attending the meeting of the
World's Women's Christian Temperance
union, held at Geneva, she has reslgnod
the presidency of the organisation because
of her ill-health.
Mrs. Ella Morris Kretschmar writes in
Good Housekeeping of July concerning the
position of women and the coming exposi

To be explicit aa to the position of the
"ladv board ' (Mrs. Blair calls it "woman's

may be well to explain:
That Is was created under a provision of
an act of congress.
That It numbers twenty-one.
That It has "the right to appoint one
member of every jury which Is to pass
upon awards for exhibits composed in whole
or In part bv female labor "
That "it shall participate In such cere
moiile ns the commission and company
That "It shall Incur no expense whatever
without the approval of the commissioners
That "It may organise by the election of

very commendable, should be prettily

but, it would seem, not quits in tne man

Mrs. Kretschmar conclulea: "None of the
