John Mulra'ney Dies
in Eleotric Chair
OSSINING, N. T., May 19,-Juhn Mul
raney, who was to have been put to
death as a murderer on March 17, but
won a sixty-day reprieve by declaring In
a personal appeal to the governor that he
was going to his death as the marti'c of
a criminal "code of honor," was electro
cuted at Sing Sing prison early today.
"Happy, Jack" as he was known to his
comrades, wore to the last the smile
that had won him his nick name and
called back to the other Inmates of th
death cells a cheerful "Good-bye."
Charles Becker, the former New York
police lieutenant and the gun men In
volved with him In the Rosenthal mur
der, were among the fourteen who an
swered. The murder "Happy Jack" was con
victed of was that of Patrick McBreen,
known as "Paddy the Priest," a New
York saloon' keeper, who was shot while
standing behind his bar on the night of
October 3, 1911. John J. Dowllng. who
died before he could be tried, and Mul
raney repudiated his admissions, pro
claiming an alibi and asserted he had
accepted the conviction following a
"crook's" code of honor not to aqual on
the other fellow. Justice Rosalskl of New
Tork, decided, however, that there were
no grounds for a new trial.

EUREKA. S. V., May 19.-(Speclal,)
Chris Wlttmayer had a cow with a
j crumpled horn. He also had another cow
that had a strap about her nock, used
"to tie her while in the barn. Chris missed
the two cows one evening and set out
to find Ihem. He discovered the cow
with the strap about her neck dead, and
the cow with the crumpled horn fastened
to the dead cow, so she could not escape.
In some manner the strap about the
one cow's neck had caught over tho
crumpled horn, and In trying to get
loose the cow had been choked to death
by its mate.

Convention Has Largest Enrollment
Ever Recorded in State.
Snys Dental JoarnnU Go to Office,
but Arc Seldom Opened, Mnch
le Tlrnrf, hy Teeth
The largest first day attendance tho
NebraAka State Dental society has en
Joyed In the thirty-seven years of Its
existence was recorded yesterday when
the secretary enrolled 2C practitioners
for the first day of the session In Omaha.
Many more are expected to enroll this
morning. Every train yesterday brought
dentists of the stale, some of them young
men who have never been members of
the association before this year. It Is
expected that the membership of the
association will be considerably Increased
before the thirty-seventh convention of
the society closes.
The evening was spent at the Field
club. Instead of holding their banquet
until the Jast evening of the convention,
when many members usually-hurry for
early trains, the dentists arranged their
banquet for the first evening of the ses
sion. A Urge percentage of the members
are accompanied by their wives, and to
gether a large number of them enjoyed
the banquet and the ddnce that followed
at the Field olub in the evening.
Should nrnil More,
"We don't read enough. Many a dental
Journal goes to the offices of the dentists
and there Is nerr ojtr.ed." said Dr. K.
II. Bruening of Omaha, president of the
Nebraska State Dental society, In his
president's address before the dental so
ciety at the opening session In the Crelgh
ton Dental college. He urged upon the
members the necessity of reading the
modern works that concern dentistry and
to read their periodical Journals In order
to keep up with the latent that Is going
on In Improved methods. He admitted
that many of the members were so busy
that It was hard for them to .find time to
read much, but Informed them that read
ing was a matter of habit, and that they
could find some time If they would.
He approached this subject through a
discussion of the dental department that
recently has been Installed In the Omaha
publlo library. He regretted that the ar
rangement was such that as yet tlm
members out In the state did not have
the privilege of taking these books out
In "the state, to read, but belloved the In
stallation of a dental library here was
but the beginning of a movement that
would eventually result In the Installa
tion of sJImlar libraries throughout the
state so that the dentlBts could all have
the advantage of them.
The president reported that at the pres
ent time "0 per cent of the practicing
dentists of the state are members of the
society. He rejoiced that the dentists
are at present at peace with the wot Id
and have no particular grievance and no
pending legislation. He called attention
to some of the dental legislation that has
been secured In recent sessions of the
legislature, the most Important of which
he said Is the annual registration law
which requires dentists of the state tu
register once a year with the state board
so that a more accurate check may be
kept on the licensed practitioners of the
state to protect them and the public,
against possible Illegal practicing.
Rev. B. M. Williams pronounced the
Invocation. Mayor Dahlman gave the
address of welcome, which was responded
to by Dr. C. F. Ladd.
The executive council met at luncheon
at noon at the Hotel Rome. Some sixty
dentists had arrived before noon. The
afternoon was taken up In reading and
discussing papers on technical subjects. A
banquet was given last evening at the
Field club, followed by a dance.

When Omaha surveyed the desolation that the
Easter tornado had left in its trail, it was appalled. The
task before it was one to dishearten mostcities, but Omaha,
with marvelous push and cool headed organization, went
at the rebuilding task. It built homes in the tornado
zone such good homes that soon the city will be bet
ter than ever. So rapid has the work been that the work
of rebuilding more than 80 per cent of the wrecked build
ings have been started or finished. As you pass through
the zone one marvels that a city could recover so rapidly.
Wrecked in a night
Rebuilt in a
A 32-page book, with large, sharp illustrations, which
The Bee has just published as a companion book to the
one issued right after the tornado, shows how the city
has recovered. Photographs of places as they looked
twelve hours after the storm, and as they appeared six
weeks later are given. It is a photographic story of
the storm and the rebuilding.
