THE BK15: OMAHA, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1912.
The Octopus packed its Grip Do you remember tho old Louisiana lot tery? That fat octo pus had its greedy tentacles in almost every hamlet and was fair gorged with" the pennies of the poor. It seemed impossible to oust it, and yet when the people fin ally woke up to what it really was. it van ished like n puff of spnoke. As long as it was re garded as a gamble, people said, "There's no use try ing to stop it. Folks will gamble. " Bnt when tho coun try woke up to the faet that tho Louisia na 1 ottory was n ' ' ' sure thing, ' ' collect-, ing hundreds of mil lions and paying back comparatively noth ing just a huge vampire steadily bat tening on honest bus iness the moment that view became clear in the public consc ience, ' it was all over. One simple Federal law was passed and the invincible octo pus packed its grip and hit the trail. Get , Everybody's Magazine For December Read Thomas W. Lawson's "REMEDY."

POLICE MAY GET PULMOTOR Invention to Produce Respiration is Wanted in Serious Cases. MANY LIVES MIGHT BE SAVED OldrlaU Krolnrr X-rd r.xlaln for Ma chine thnt AVnnlil U Police StirKenn in Thplr Ilnttlr for I.lrn. Tho Omaha police may ret bo gtven a chance to be compared In efficiency with tho departments of cltlen of tho samo tlie as this. The Increased number of tul-" cldes and deaths by asphyxatlon have caused police sunceons to bemoan their lack of equipment and It Is mgRested that a pulmotor be added to tho regular equipment used by the physicians. Commissioner Ryder Is strongly In favor of one of the machines and he says that If ho can secure money enough, one will be purchased by tho department. The machine Is iv German Invention that produces artificial respiration and often saves lives, where the efforts of human hands are useless. Police Surgeon Harris has voiced his need of such an Instrument and last night he declared that In the case of the young French lad, who died Inst Thursday morning, a pulmotor would probably have saved his 'life. Kitty Cheatham Gives Her Concert In Charming Way Kitty Cheatham, the distinguished "dlaeuse," visited Omaha yesterday for tho second time. Her first appearance hero was under a concert sorlrs managed by Mrs. W. W. Turner. 'It Is unfortunate that Miss Cheathnm's unique rocltals were not better adver tised, as the artist certainly deserved much larger audiences, and many Omaha people, missed a. very delightful and un usual entertainment. A great many of her songs were writ ten especially for Miss Cheatham. Great arias r Oh, no; much more Interesting to everybody just charming llttlo bts of childhood or southern Ufa told In story and song. Her, children's songs are nil very clover. In these, whether humorous or otherwise, tho child's point of view Is almost always given. This Miss Cheatham brings clearly to her audience by gesture, facial cxprcs slon and song, and each ono remembers that at otic time ho or she was young and suffered or enjoyed somewhat similar experiences. "Violets," in this group, composed by Huntington Woodman, was a gem in sentiment, music and Interpretation Among the most humorous of these cml dren's songs may bo mentioned "Vis itors," by Waddlngton Cooke, and "Practicing." by Carpenter." The most interesting part of Ml Cheatham's recital, however, was the group of old negro songs and sayings. This part of tho program was entirely too short. Mies Cheatham is a southerner herself and knows tho old plantation negroes by actual living' among them. The chants and old melodies that she songs and are genuine folksongs, and they abound In tho beautiful minor in-' tervals and tho -real syncopation that we seldom hear In these days of blatant ragtime. Miss Cheatham would do well to glre many moro examples of' tlficso vitally In teresting folksongs. In speaking of tho use of minor. Miss Cheatham brings to mind that tho negro's problem lsnot worked out; that only when a people's difficulties are solved do they sing In major harmonies. Miss Cheatham feels that the colored man', with his Inimitable humor, pathos and mimetic powers,- is using these pow ers too much to follow other people, rather than for working within, and de veloping individually, as ho should. Tho third part of the program was made up of many widely different numbers. "When Mallndv Sings." a recitation writ ten for Miss Chealhnm by Paul Lawrence Dunbar (the only genulno negro to attain any literary prominence), was very artis tically Interpreted. "Punchinello" was tho most dramatic number on tho pro gram, and "The Little Gray Lamb," by Sullivan, a request number, was full of beauty. "Why Adam Sinned," "Don't Be What You Ain't," "Tho Elf Man," by John Kendrlck Bangs'. "Matilda," a humorous song by Usa I.elunann. and "The Owl and tho Pussy Cat," by Gcorgo Ingraham, were among tho more humorous, and all wero given In Miss Cheatham's own charming manner. Although a number of the selections were tho same that she gave In Omaha at her previous visit, they were nonetheless Interesting for that reason. It would have been very delightful to havo heard Miss Cheatham in her Tschat kowski program, including some of tho Hoffman fairy tales, or a group of Paul or Debussy Interpretations. However, as tlx), dlseuse camo to Omaha upon rather short notice, and was not In com pany with an orchestra, we can but hope for ono of these at some future time. Miss I P. Jones added much to the evening's entertainment by her sympathetic and beautiful accompaniments. II. M. It.

Tho. Indictment attracting the greatest amount of public Interest was returned against the Omaha architectural engineer, whose name was given ns William C. Gott, but which numerous witnesses be fore the grand jury declared was William C. Gott. He Is charged with bigamy. Tho witness who guve the most materia testimony was Miss Lorctto Damahy, a young Omaha girl, who caused his ar rosL shortly after her marriage to him on Scptomber 2$, believing his statements concerning his social life and that he was an unmarried man. Sho told the grand Jurors thnt sho first met Gott during the latter part of August or tho first part of Sepcmber, and that the attraction was mutual. Bho testi fied that on the afternoon of September 2S they camo to Council Bluffs and were united In marriage. A fortnight later sho discovered he was already married and had a young wife living In Council Bluffs In a homo which ho had recently provided for her, Tho discovery was made when wife No. 1 called upon her and told the story of her marriage of Gott, who had given the name of Gotz. Several Omaha men and women went before the grand Jury and testified that they were neighbors of Mr. and Mrs. Gott when they lived at 2572 and 2G74 Spauldtng street, Omaha, confirming the testimony of Mrs. Gott, who told of her married llfo with Gott. Gott's bond was fixed at J2.0W. He Is still In the county Jail. Miss Bfdge Tells of Italian Influence on . the American Art "The, Italian Influence on tho American Art" was the subject, of the program glvon by tho Society of FIno Arts at Its meeting Thursday morning. Mrs. Leonard Everett had ehargo of tho program and was assisted by Miss Caroline Dodge. Miss Dodge first spoke of tho work of Caryl Coleman, whose pictures usually bear some classical group of buildings as background, his fanciful conception of "Christ Walking on the Soa" being a pleasant exception to his architectural subjects. Tho chtef artist under discussion was Ellhu Vedder, whose remarkable imagination has been the Inspiration for the canvases which havo mado him fa mous. Mr. Veddor often uses a simple composition or sketch ns a themo which he embroiders and encircles with mystery. Thls-"was very clearly shown by Miss Dodge, who presented a sketch of a pathetic old colored woman a vender, whom tho artist passed In his dally walks. This sketch with its turbaned head sug gested tho picture of tho Cumacan Sibyl, nnd later the splendid head of Lazarus, which Is perhaps tho moat popular of Veddcr's works. To tho art world nnd tho critics Veduer Is best known by his remarkable Illustra tions for the Itubalynt of Omar Khayyam. Mrs. Everett showed, many beautiful slides from tho pages of ,tho book, reciting tho text of the poem on each picture, a charming proof of the suitability of the Vedder Illustrations to this material.
