HOSPITAL AT HOT SPRINGS
GoTernment Makes Farther Appropriation!
, to Complete Fine Institution.
BIG BATTLE MOUNTAIN SANITARIUM
Institution, that Will Accommodate
Crippled a Dlicucd Vetetui
and May la Tim Become
Rational la Scop.
Through the energies of Captain Henry
E. Palmer, member of the board of trus
tees of the National Homea for Disabled
Volunteers, an additional appropriation of
$32,600 has Just been secured for the Battle
Mountain sanitarium at Hot Springs, S. D.
Of this sum 12,000 Is for officers' quarters
and $7,600 for a conservatory. Captain
Palmer took up this matter only In Decem
ber last and Is more than gratified that
the appropriation has been granted. In
referring to the progress of construction at
the sanitarium, Captain Palmer says:
"The main ward buildings are now nearly
all under roof, the roofs being of tile. The
plumbing and steam heating plants are now
being put In. The buildings will be ready
for occupancy by January 1, 1906. The
total eoat of the sanitarium up to the pres
ent time, or the appropriations therefor,
amount to 1700,000. When completed the
establishment will have a capclty of 460
beds, and It will require about 150 em
ployes to run the concern.
Youngr Met Come First.
The first patients to be sent there will
probably be the disabled Spanish-American
war volunteers, many of whom are now In
the soldiers' homes, under treatment for
ailments originating In the Philippines,
Cuba and Porto Rico. These are largely
young men under SO years of age. After
these are accommodated civil war veterans

will be oared for there. Many of these
are now being oared for at the soldiers'
homes throughout the country, and only
uch as are suffering from ourable ail
ments will be given a course of treatment
at the sanitarium. These are largely men
yet under CO years of age. '

as a 'home' In the sense that the national
soldiers' homes for disabled volunteers are.
These homes are sufficiently equipped with
hospital accommodations for the old vet
erans who are disabled through age and
senility and unable to take care of them
selves. I think in time that the Battle
Mountain sanitarium will become a na
tional hospital for soldiers of the regular
army as well, as for the volunteers, thus
assuring! Its permanency as a national
institution. Of course, it is relatively na
tional In character now, but the govern
ment has already a hospital and home for
disabled regular army soldiers at Washing'

RUNAWAY GIRL ROUNDED UP

Sheldon, Iowa, Shortly After
Her Arrival. . ,
Lucylle B. Hick, a runaway girl, is stay
ing with the police matron at the station
until Captain Haze can get word from her
father in Sheldon, la. She does not look a
day over 16, but she says she is 19 years of
age and mistress of her own destinies.
The (irl was first seen by Officer Madsen
as she got off a Northwestern train at the
Union station at 10:30 Thursday night.
She seemed to be expecting some one. but
as she stayed about fifteen minutes and no
friend appeared, the officer began to ques
tion her. She caid that she was expecting
her brother and that he would take her to
a rooming house on South Thirteenth street,
the place shu mentioned being known to
the police. Officer Madsen told her It
was not a suitable place for a young girl to
stay and suggested that she go to a hotel.
She then went to the Union hotel and regis
tered at M:s. O. Evans.
Captain iiostyn thought there ought to
be an investigation, and he had Officer
Baldwin go to the hotel and bring the girl
to the station. There she confessed that
her name was Lucylle Hicks and that her
home was In Sheldon, la. She had been
visiting In another town and her relatives
thought she had left for home, but she
came to Omaha Instead.
In her suit case were found a number of
letWrs from an Omaha man signing himself
Ouy Alnsworth, and from the contents the
police were assured that she had come to
meet the writer.
Police Matron Anderson took charge of
the girl and a telegram was sent to her

OMAHA VIEVTSMANY WANTS
Improvement Club -Hears from Coun
cllmen and Others on Various
The Omaha View Improvement club held
another big meeting last night, to which
special Interest was attached by the pres
ence of Councllmen Edward Evans and
C. S. Huntington, and J. W. VanGllder,
each of whom addressed the club at length.
Mr. Evans stated to the club that he was
anxious to extend the property owners of
the 'Omaha View section every possible as
sistance as a councilman and citizen, in
the matter of securing deserved and needed
light, sidewalks and other Improvements.
Many of these he had secured In the past
and assured the club that he would do
all he could in the future.
Mr. Huntington spoke in general terms. of
city Improvement's, and, the need of fur
ther improvements, not only in Omaha
View, but elsewhere throughout ,the city.
He would gladly aid Mr. Evans in secur
ing to this part of town every improve
ment possible, but the council is handi
capped by the shortage of funds. He said
that while It Is charged that the council
annually appropriated nearly $1,600,000 for
various purposes, yet as a matter of fact
there Is but about $90,000 that the council
can appropriate, as the great bulk of the
city funds are appropriated by law to vari
ous departments over which the council
has no actual control. He stated that for
every dollar expended by the council there
could be shown the equivalent dollar'sJ
worth of work.
Mr. VanGllder spoke of the boulevard
and park improvements, and said that the
Prospect Hill Improvement club, of which
he Is a member, Is In hearty accord with
the Omaha .View club in the matter of
the boulevard route and that It also stands
ready to help Omaha View secure the street
railway extension on Thirty-third street,
from Parker to Maple. He spoke of the

Madame Tale Tells Omaha Women How to
Be and Bemain Beautiful.
HERSELF AIMIRAL EXAMPLE OF THEORY
Passing; Years Have Lett None of the
Marks Usually Noticed Upon Her
Face and Figure, Beautiful
and Girlish Yet.
"I can promise you everything In the
way of beauty If you will only live and
act in the way I tell you," was the mes
sage of Madame Yale to the women of
Omaha at Boyd's theater yesterday.
Then she told how women could make
themselves beautiful, and remain young
as the years creep on, even though the
half century mark be reached and passed.
She herself Is the living example of her art,
the living personification of beauty, health
and grace. And the wonderful woman Is
63 years of age. At least she says she Is,
and It must be so, for who ever heard of
a woman makirtg it more than it really Is?
Madame Yale looks as fresh uid young as
a woman of 28, and one could almost swear
that she is not above 30. Yet looks are de
ceiving. "People cannot understand it," she said.
"There Is not a gray hair In my head, not
a wrinkle in my cheek or brow, not a
Blgn of stiffness in my joints, and my
voice Is the voice of a girl. There are
those who accuse me of being my own
daughter, but I assure you that I am the
same Madame Yale wHo came before the
public twenty years ago. I am not a bit
changed from then, do not look a bit dif
ferent, except perhaps that I am younger.
The secret of it all Is beauty culture.
No Ezcue for Valine...
"There Is no excuse for ugliness; It Is the
result of Improper living. With proper
breathing and diet, the correct method of
walking and careful attention to cleanli
ness and exercise, beauty can be attained.
"If we all made ourselves beautiful, our
children would be born perfect. If we were
altogether beautiful we would be perfectly
healthy ourselves and our offspring could
not help but be likewise. By caring for
our own bodies 'we teach them to care for
theirs. If we care nothing for beauty in
ourselves, how ran we expect the children
to become beautiful T
"Because you are a middle-aged woman,
do not think there is no hope for you. Age
has fastened on you habits of improper
living, but If you can command yourself
to begin living, to outardly express the
beauty which la within, .you will be sur
prised to see how good looking you will
become. If one ' begins In time, there is
absolutely no reason why a woman of 40 or
60 should not be as young as-one of 20, Just
as I am now."
Here are some of Madame Yale's Instruc
tions: "Open the eyes when you laugh, do not
shut them and draw wrinkles about the
"Breathe deeply. It has a wonderful ef
fect on the development of the bust. Chief
of all, It purifies the blood and no woman
can be healthy without rich, red blood.

tlon and build them up. Exercise Is one of
the secrets of beauty.
"Drink plenty of water. It serves to elim
inate the waste of the system."
Illustrates Her Lecture.
Madame Yale's costumes were stunning.
Her first appearance was in a white decol
lete gown covered with shining spangles.
In this she delivered a part of her lecture.
Next she came on the stage In a short
skirt and went through a set of callsthenlc
exercises which she uses for her own mus
cles. To show the correct and incorrect
methods of walking, she appeared in black
tights, which set oft to advantage her su
perb figure. The lecture was concluded in
a decollete gown of some dark material.
Here she showed her hearers the proper
methods of massage.
"Beauty," said Madame Yale, "is an ex
pression of the inner life. Of course one
must have a healthy body in order to be
beautiful, but I wish to say that no one
can be truly beautiful who harbors in her
heart pettiness or selfishness or any thing
which Is bad. The selfishness and the pet
tiness shows on the outside; It makes its
Imprint on the person. To have beautiful
bodies we must be beautiful Inside."
CHASE LECTURES 0n7aRS1FAL
Conarresalonal Church Packed to
Listen to an Explanation of the
Great Muala Drama.
At the First Congregational church last
night a large crowd assembled to listen to
the lecture by Clement Chase on "Parsi
fal." The auditorium and lecture room
were thrown together, and both were filled
more than comfortably, and many were
turned away because the church would
hold no more. Mr. Chase talked for
about an hour and a half, and was as
sisted by Miss Paulson at the piano, and
Mr. Cuscaden, who played the "Good
Friday" spell on the violin. The lecturer
made clear the story and the many beau
ties of the great muslo drama. On Monday,
night Mr. Chase will lecture before the
Matinee Musical at Lincoln, and on Fri
day night of next week he will appear
before the Woman's Club of Fremont. In
both these cities he will be assisted by

prevails, and the prospect Is for light
snow flurries, with cooler tonight and to
morrow. GRANT, Neb., March 10. (Special Tele

during last night. This was preceded by
rain and with no wind and is rapidly dis

were regarded as captious, frivolous, un
true and Insubordinate, has again appealed
to the president for a new trial on the
ground that he waa not permitted to sum
mon witnesses from points outside the De
partment of the Missouri. Lieutenant
Mohn refused to make any defense at all
on this ground. This is his third trial
on the same -charges and specifications. His
last trial was somewhat sensational, in the
fact that he protested against the creation
of the court by order of Brigadier General
Wlnt, commanding the department, on the
ground that General Wlnt was prejudiced
against him and could not in futrnesa desig
nate the trial of the court-martial because of
prejudice, w liliu ihei e was nu ground for
this charge of unfairness, the deportment
commander acceded to the request of
Lieutenant Mohn, and the court was there
upon named by the president st the request
of the accused lieutenant. Among the wit
nesses summoned by Lieutenant Mohn waa
one officer now In Rome, Italy, and several
others In remote sections. Who could not
attend the trial without impairment of tho
efficiency of the service. For this reason
Lieutenant Mohn claims that he has not
had a fair trial, and made no effort at a
defense, and consequently asks for a new
trial, the hearing having been brought In
the first Instance at his own request. Lleu
tenant Mohn is an officer of the Fourth
cavalry, stationed at Jefferson Barracks.
Diet of Apples and Milk.
In their instructive experimental work
the agricultural stations have issued a bul
letin on the food advantages of milk and
apples, not only for children but for grown
up people- Though no one would think
so from looking at a fluid glass of milk
and a solid apple, the percentages of solids
and water in apples and In milk Is almost
the same, apples being 86 per cent water
and milk 80 per cent.
There is more sugar in spples and more
add in milk, A diet of both apples and
milk Is one of the most wholesome and
well balanced. The potash contents of
both are high. They are the best food
for brain, bone and muscle nourishment
and In their effect upon the nerves they
In skimming milk the cream removed
lessens the fat percentage, and for older
persons or fat children the skim milk Is
equally desirable, in some cases better. In
rating spples, the skin, too, should be
eaten. Pared apples are not so nutritious,
as the ash contents of the apple skin are
valuable to the human system.
Sixty years of experience with Ayer's Sarsa

of people who have been cured by this medicine!
If despondent, down-hearted, discouraged, and
almost ready to give up, this splendid old family
