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
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
. 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."

fects of appendicitis. The boy was kicked

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

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

It has long been evident-that ' the time

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

NEW TORK, Oct. 10. An aged watch

their desperation he robbers chloroformed
the old man as he lay bleeding rn the floor
and then began a systematic rvarch of tho

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

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

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

DR, S. D. MERCER IS DEAD

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

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

proached. In all but financial matters he
seemed especially unfortunate, and re
cently, In talking over affairs with Rev.

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;.
His own home, a spacious and stately
brick building ot three stories, is one of
the land marks of the city and the nucleus
