The Omaha World-Herald the Liad-. log Newspaper of City and Stale. Among the great . Institutions of Omaha the dally newspaper naturally takes rank, Just aa It does In all large cities. ,. The Omaha Dally World-Herald Is accorded the largest circulation of any newspaper In the state of Nebraska by the newspaper directories published from year to year. The World-Herald la a great employer of labor, and a great political power In Nebraska and Western Iowa. During the year 1898 the disbursements of the World-Herald for blank paper upon which It was printed were over HO, 000. Its postage bill was almost 110,000. It paid out for setting of type with which It Is printed about 10,000, and the blank paper which it consumed during the year would load two long freight trains, having amounted to seventy-one carloads. The World-Herald's circulation Is chiefly In Nebraska and Western Iowa, but it reaches up also Into South Dakota, down into Kansas and Missouri, and out into Wyoming and other western states. The average circulation of the World-Herald during the year 1898 was 28.596 copies per day. Subscription price of the Dally World-Herald Is H per year by mail.

The principal retail district, owing to Its broad streets, most of them paved with asphalt and the others with gran no provision is made for cooking with coal, and tenants are obliged to use gas stoves. The use of gas fur domestic purposes Is not, however, confined to them. It has become more popular every year, both for all the year round and for Bummer cooking, and it is anticipated that it will continue displacing coal. The use or gas for street lighting outside the business districts and streets has also Increased, both In quantity and quality. The lamps now used are of sixty candle power, or three times as much aa the old style burners still In use In many cities. MEDICAL COLLEGES. ite.

There was a fair Increase every year up to 1S97, when there was a big Increase, which again was beaten by the 1898 record, and the Indications now are that it again will be left far behind by the 1899 figures. The receipts at the Omaha postomce for the las ttwo years were: 1897, JZSfi.MS.16. ' 1898, 1357,674 95., or over 11,000 a day for each business day. Omaha behind any city of the country, either east or west. In addition to the main retail district, clusa to or Into Beat In the Country. Omaha has two medical colleges of high standing. They have been established for a numbejjof ytars. and for several year, past have taken rank with the foremost medical colleges in the country. To graduate at either college students arp required to take the full four years-term, and successfully pass 8 r'Kia e-amlnalions as those of noted eastern colleges. The students are from every part of the United Stales. Canada, Mexico and from still farther away countries, and today highly successful physicians who obtained their education in Omaha are to be found in all parts of the world. which every car line runs, there are several minor districts, with good sized stores of all lines, in the northern and southern parts of the city. That competition In retail lines In TRANSFER AND STORAGE In both the transfer and storage lines Omaha is well supplied with prompt and responsible (Inns, which are doing a laige business. Omaha Is as keen as in any city in the In general educational facilities Omaha is the eijual of any oily In the United States, and is the superior ot a number of i-ltles. This latt-r for the reason that It always has, and does, proxide ample s huol room ac , ommoda-tlons for all children. Omaha was also one of the first cities In the country to adopt the policy of providing all schm.l books and supplies of . very kind free to pupils, so' that the father of a family.

There are now furty one large ami modern public school buildings In the city, and at the last election the board of education was authorized to Issue JJjO.000 of bonds for the erection of three new bulldinKS. and lo begin the erection, ly building one wing, of a new High school building. The bond, mentioned will be issue, July 1. and will make the imlel.ted.1es8 of the school distric t of Omaha JV.r. U"0. with an annual interest charge of about J.S9.500.

From this source Omaha .ho past two years has received from M.00U to 60,000 per jear. Owing to these source-of revenue the amount necessary to be raised by a direct levy of taxes for school purposes is coniparutiv ely small.

In addition to the public schools Omaha also has a number of parochial schools attached to churches of different denominations, and also several private and preparatory schools. .... . There are three academics, or colleges, for young holies which have and fully deserve a high standing among similar institutions in the east to which in all respects they are equal.

An attendance at th. exposition sufficient to make It a success In every ray Is, It can be said, already assured. Owing to the attention of the peo-ie ef the country being almost wholly taken up during the spring and sum-smr month! last year with the war with Spain the greatness and Importance ef the Trans-Mlsalsslppt exposition was not realised by many, especially In the east, until It was tee lat. for them to It. It was not until during the eloslng weeks ef It, when President MoKlnley and a number of the ' tooet prominent railroad and business men had visited and unqualifiedly braised It, and after the magulne. and great papers of the east, active hostilities having eeased, sevoted considerable apace to It. that the people ' ft the country becem. really acquainted with the exposition.

Ab the bonds, as all school district and other bonds are, were lssed under authority of the people voting on a specific proposition at the last general election, the board was unable to make the change. January 7, 1899, the city of Omaha sold $40,800 of 4 per cent. Interest payable annually, street Improvement district bonds, running from one to nine years, the average being five and one-half years, at $101.63, receiving a premium of $624.24. This was the best sale of short time improvement district bond, made up to the present time by any western city.

In both the legitimate and vaudeville lines Omaha is well provided with theaters and In addition has a large number of minor places of amusement of all kinds, Including, during the season, the popular roof gardens.
