WORK KEYNOTE OF SUCCES3 Speaker Declares that CTallilrea Mast Re Taaabt Tr laatroctora tu Find rieasnre In Stadias. Nathan C. SchaefTer. state superintendent of schools of Pennsylvania, who Is attend ing the meeting of the Iowa and Nebraska Library asaoclattons, addrcaacd the teach ers of the Omaha public schools at the SKsembly room on the fifth floor of the city hall. Mr. SchaefTer liad no Intention of delivering an addrias to the teachers when he came. wet for . t ho purpose of speaking before the librarians, but' as he has for several years before this one been the president of the National Educational association, he' was Induced by Superin tendent Davidson to talk to the teachers. Not a seat was vaoant In the assembly room and few t the 0 teachers of the clt were absent. When Superintendent Davidson Introduced the speaker Mr. SchaefTer said hs had prepared no subject, but would glvo Omaha teachers a talk on what had most"" forcibly Impressed him since he reached the city-work. A humor ous talk of over an hour held the atten tion of the hearere front start to finish. The speaker said that civilised man could not be contented unless ho was at some form of work snd that ho cams to have pleasure only when his mind or hands were occupied with labors, while savage man Is more Interested In sports. In this respect the child Is like the savage and It la the duty of the teacher to civilise him to teaah him to work and to .1nd pleasure In It The speaker declared Ms lack of sym pathy with those alleged educational re formers who advocated the Idea of fooling the child Into the belief that his study Is play, and declared that the average child will not be so deceived. He had attended one college, he said, where the boast of the students was that they never per mitted their studies to Interfere with their education, their study time coming when they were not busy educating themselves with foot ball, base ball and highballs; that a young Rhoadea' scholar at Oxford wrote home that he had resalved to study hard from 4 to 7 o'clock In tho evening.' ' Work is Neeeanary, Mr. SchaefTer then declared that while "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," all play and no work makes Jack a mere toy. While he did not desire to undervalue the effect of play 1n the edu cation of the child he did not desire the effect of work In the education of the child to be underestimated. He then spoke of the decrease In child labor and declared the child's time too valuable to be spent in manual labor that vast fortunes may be accumulated by em ployer He declared that the best evi dence of good school work Is not found in "school exhibits" that are hung on tho walls, but In the children who pass through the schools. Ho said that the atm of the teaoher should bo to secure that reflex in fluence from school work that will make tho pupil a student after he leaves school; that the teacher should help pupils over those stages where studies seem to pall He said that the child has a right to be happy at school and the teacher Who con- not make him Irappy while at work is out of her ' element. - and the teacher cannot make the child happy at his work unless she Is happy at thers. What keeps the su perintendent awake at night is 4o seeure teachers who can get work out of chil dren without wearing upon their nerves. Teacaer'a Gntdlnar Thoagfct. Teachers should Do guided by the Idea that they should "do something for some body," and when- they do this they will succeed. . In closing said: "On the pages of his tory there are two kinds of men called great rulers like Alexander the Great, Orederlck tho Great and Louis the Great, and religious leaders like Leo the Great and Gregory the Great. They are called great because of tholr Influence upon the people. The- face of the world was' changed by tho great rulers, and Christianity moved to a higher plane after action by great religious leaders. In th' early days only through church or state .could men havs large iui'uerice upon their fellows. There waa one man who cured men with a word, but He la not called a great doctor; who expounded the law in a way to surprise His hearers, but He Is not called a great lawgiver; who preached as none before, but He la not called a great preacher; but when one mentions the Great Teacher all thoughts move toward Jesus Christ; and with the spirit shown tn His work In soma day. which may not .. be distant, other teachers may be knorn aa great because of their Influence upon mankind." DEATH RECORD. LaaU Wllaoa. Louis Wilson, the 0-year-old son of James Wilson and Margaret Knight Wilson, 202D Willis avenue, died Friday from the ef fects of appendicitis. The boy was kicked Dept.

I Current Literature j "A Loat Leader," by E rhllllps Oppen helm, author of "Tho Malefactor," "A Maker of History." etc.. Is a fascinating story of modern life snd one that srrests the mind by iff fine strenuouaness of pur pose. Like tho late Henry Scton Merrl man, Mr. Oppenhelm has been called an alchemist, because he can transform the novel of exciting incident into something that lias a real relation to contemporary life. "A Lost Leader" is perhaps his most successful essay In this direction. For his latest hero, Mr. Oppenhelm has taken a modern leader who has elected to stand aloof from the conflict of the po litical world, but ho has created a strong, distinct personality,, and not merely ex ploited one already familiar. Little, Brown 4 Company Is the publisher. "The Rock of Chlckamauga," by General Charles King, author of "The Colonel's Daughter," "Norman Holt." "Tonlo, ' Son of the Blerraa," etc.. Is a story of the civil war In which General George II. Thomas Is tVie central figure. The attitude of Stanton, Grant and Sherman toward him Is discussed. Chickamauga Is Its main battle. The actual facts and details of the story cover severs! y.ars of careful work. There Is a very pleasing love story Interwoven which sdds to the Interest ot tho book. The O. W.

It offers a series of inter esting sketches, taking up such subjects as the fox, moose, wildcat, eagle, osprcy, woodcock, trout fishing and August in the pasture lands. The life stories of the wild creatures are told in a most at tractive manner, and the Incidents relat-i are actual occurrences, largely from the author's own experience. '"Herrlck'a Text Book In General Zoology," by Glenn W. Herrick, B. S. A., introduces each branch of the . animal kingdom by a familiar and accessible type. After the various forms qf the branoh havs been studied, their .characteristics are summed up, their adaptations to en vironment and their economic significance are discussed- and, lastly, a clear, con cise classification of the group is given, "Blalsdell's Composition Rhetoric," by Thomas C.

It has long been evident-that ' the time must corne when Randy must make the choice which most' deeply concerns her future luipptness,- but so honest and mai denly Is she that 'neither of the young men who most worthily admire; her can feel that he has mora than ths pleasant friendship of former schooldays, nor li the reader any wiser-until at the very end she allows her heart to make Vnown who Is "Rand'a Prince." This Is wisely done, as the story of sweet and simple girlhood Is In this way entirely unim paired by the introduction of the love ele ment. The regret that there are to be no more Randy books will be somewhat modified by . the author's statement that "little sister Prue" is to have a series of books written about her, beginning with next season, in which Randy will uo doubt often appear.

NEW TORK, Oct. 10. An aged watch man's faithful performance of his duty even when rlesth wss threatened prevented a robbery t-arly today which. If It had been auccessful, tnose? familiar with the case say-, wiuUl have mused a sensation almost sa great as tl at which followed tho looting of th Manhattan bank many years ago. Rl- hard K. Grav watchman In the lofty' Century building at "4 Broadway, near hs center of the financial district, wss the hero. He Is now In the hospital suffering from wounds which he received In a des perate single-handed fight against two rob bers who attacked him Trhlle he was mak ing his rounds on the nineteenth floor of the building after midnight. Although 00 years old. Gray made' a most determined light against his assailants, and It was not Until he had been battered until almost un. conscious that ho was overcome. Even then he refused to reveal to the robbers the hiding. .Jace of the keys to the hun. dreds of offices in the great building. In their desperation he robbers chloroformed the old man as he lay bleeding rn the floor and then began a systematic rvarch of tho lower portion of th,e,bulldlnr for the miss ing keys. Apparently th-y were unsuc cessful In their search, for when Gray re vived and staggered ?own the nineteen flights to the baseiriel.t the men has dis appeared. The poll'-e have a good descrip tion of his asedilarits and believe they will be captured. A detective who had a talk with Gray Is bf the opinion that a clerk at one time em ployed In the building was the Instigator of the attempted robbery and that his com panion was an expert bank thief. "If these men had wrested the keys from the watchman," said the detective, "they would have done ' a Job that would have made the Manhattan robbery look like a cheap affair. They were after one safe, In the building and that was all they wanted. They knew that the securities In that safe were worth untold thousands, and they also knew that to attempt to force the door would ring bufrflar -alarms and that In an Instant the building would be surrounded." As a result of the attempted robbery scores of detectives and additional police from a dosen stations were on guard In the financial district, today. A cordon of men was thrown . a.-ound the dlstilct bounded by Wall and Cedar end Nassau and Greenwich streets, and a search was made In all buildings In that territory into which thieves could force their way, but no trace of the desperadoes could be found. South Omah 31 a a Wanted. CHEYENNE. Wyq... Oct. 10. (Special.) Lewis Chone, a well-known horss buyer from South Omaha, who last evening es caped into Nebraska, probably will be brought back to Cheyenne to stand trial on a charge of felonious assault. The complaining witness Is Gftbe M. Payton, n employe at the' Union Pacific Stock yards. According,, to. the story told by Payton and wjjnvssea of the assault, Chone, who haif ,two carloads of hoiitu 4t' 'the,',yarda jjvr.iied . Fayton anrt other employes because .iliey made more, noise than ' he thought' necessary. Payton re monstrated with' Chone for the language used and the latter assaulted! Payton with a prod pole, .striking him violently twice, breaking a rib and knocking him down. As Payton fell Chone reached for a rear pocket, apparently expecting to rtraw a gun therefrom. The weapon was In his grip, however, and he at once went to where the grip had been left and secured It. Armed with the gun he returned to the scene of the trouble, to be Informed (that Tay ton had telephoned for the sheriff. He at once made off In the darkness, reached the Union Pacific depot by a circuitous route and boarded an east bound train and was soon over' the Ne braska line. Bla- 'Salting;" Deal Kxpoaeel. CASPER, Wyo., Oc.U 10.-(Speclal.) It Is learned today that one of the biggest fake schemes In. the llns of'saltlng' mineral property . In this state was successfully operated at Lander, or rather in the Lan der mining dlstrlcU about three weeks ago. T. L. Greenough, a capitalist from Mis soula, Mont., together with twenty others from the same state and from Washington, came through here :on their way to Lan der for tha purpose of Investigating this property, which had been represented to them as promising' large ' returns. TTiey purchased 30,000 acres ot gold placer land. Including water rights, at an expense of $30,000, and after a ithorough and exhaus tive "test" by expert assayers. It was re ported to be worth millions of dollars and everybody wanted some of the land, and a great rush set In to locate claims ad joining the Greenough property. Now It develops that 'the mines wfcre "salted" and the Greenoughs have ordered operations suspended and have cancelled all orders for material which; has not already been ahlpped. It la reported on the best au thority thai tho aasavs wars not correct and that In every test where a good run of gold wa.i found tha property was made rich In gold by artificial means.

MERCER IS DEAD (Continued from First Page.) , I larly iroscs. Ho was also an admirer of works of ait. ' Dr. Mercer's break In health, though dat. Ing back some years, became acute about three years ago, when he was sbruptly re duced from a powerful specimen of physi cal manhood to a mere shadow of his for mer self. Up to a yosr ago he persisted ; In attending to his duties at his office downtown, which had been transferred ' from the Bee building to the Paxton block. But finally the determined spirit had to ' surrender to the Insidious diseaae, which l was creeping more steadily upon the doctor 1 than ho perrnltted himself to believe. And ! therefore for about a year he had been I confined almost entirely to his home, get ' ting out only once In a while around his i piavv. r In the hope ot rehabilitating his health Dr. Mercer took a long Journey a few years . sgo, but IU failed of the desired results. An additional burden came upon him In the -death of Mrs. Mercer, which occurred j whllo she and one daughter were In Ari i sona, where the doctor had but recently left them. They had shortly before that spent some months on the Scandanavlan peninsula. It waa while they were abroad that George W. Mercer, the eldest son, a former city councilman, died at the family homo Immediately upon his return from an eastern trip. This blow fell with crush ing force upon the family. Mlsfortonea Are Multiplied. It seemed that misfortune came In quick succession and the doctor felt the pang of 1 It more and more aa his own end ap proached. In all but financial matters he seemed especially unfortunate, and re cently, In talking over affairs with Rev. Charles W. Savldge, pastor of the People's ( church, he said: "I sometimes think wealth Is ot no value, hardly worth giving away. My property has steadily Increased In value and yet 1 am not. happy. I don't know why mis fortunes have come to me In such rapid succession." Ho sopko sadly of wealth and ita failure to bring happiness. But he found Joy in giving. He added: j "I have tried to help some who have come to me for help of late and have found great Joy In It. I think I never did any thing that afforded me more pleasure than In giving $2,500 to the First Christian church. My mother was a good) Christian woman and she belonged to this denomina tion and It Is the one to which I have felt drawn." A chapel In this new First Christian church at Twenty-sixth and Harney streets Is set aside, as a memorial to Mrs. Mercer, wife of the doctor. Dr. Mercer gave toward the erection of the new Toung Men's Christian association the new Tottng Woman's Christian associa tion and ho Intended making a donation to the Old Woman's homo established by Rev. Mr. Savldo. Never Kimtera the Cottage. Tn the last few months of his rapidly wasting life- Dr. Merger decided he would get more fresh air and be generally bene fited If he could occupy a little cottage to himself, built with the special view of get ting all the air and sunshine possible. Pur suant to this plan, he had such a cottage ot frame built on the eastern line of his grounds on which his big brick dwelling stands. But he never entered that cottage nor again got outside of his old home. Dr. Mercer, who built the first electrical street railway In Omaha, retained his holdings In the local corporation until Its reorganization some five years ago. He disposed of his entire interests then for $285,009 tn cash, with which he straightened out all his private property and began a campaign of building, which ended only with his death and gave to Walnut Hill and other sections of the city where he owned lots some of their most substantial residences. On Walnut Hill which . In earlier days he had platted from a farm ot 138 acres and named after an academy he attended In his youth within a radius bounded by Fortieth street on the east, Cuming on the north, Ixard on the south and Forty-second on the west, he erected in this period no less than a dosen seurate dwellings, besides a row of handsome brick flats on Ixard r.ear Forty-first, which give living quarters for several farojlies. Not one of his buildings was put up on the cheap order, but everyone ' was sub stantially built, none costing for erection less than $2,800 and on up to $7,000; the fiats, of oourse, cost much more, being ot brick and artistic design. This campaign of building was a most potent factor In the general increase of all Walnut Hill property as welt as the adornment of that beautiful section of the city. Near Twen tieth and Nineteenth and Cuming the doc tor had several houses, some of which he had hat recently erected, while others havs been there for' years. His Home a Stately Dwelling;.
