Nothing New in Strike Conditions.
An underground telogram from Oma
ha says that the Union Pacific officials
deny that they are making any over
tures toward a settlement of the strike
on the Union Pacific, and state more
emphatically than elegantly that they
will not make any such overtures An
official is quoted as saying that the
company will give employment to
strikers if they wish to return to
work under old conditions as fast as
vacancies occur, but in no case will an
employe, who has staid with them since
the strike . beg?.n, be discharged in
order to re-employ a striker.
Junior Normal is Assured.
A letter received from Representative
Stevens by Supt. Tout announces the
passage of the bill appropriating $14,000
for the support of the seven junior
normal schools of the state. It is ex
pected that Governor Morehead will not
hesitate to sign the bill,, and as soon
as he does so tho State Supt. will
-announce the selection of the faculty
for the North Platte normal and the
date on which it will open. These sum
mer normal schools cost the state about
$2,000 each, but it is money' well ex
pended. The North Platte normal has
always been well attended and teachers
as well as prospective teachers have
received much benefit.
Miss Loudeu Delivers an Address.
Miss Maud Louden spoke in the Bap

gayo a bit of her own experience while
in christian work in Chicago. Tho train
ing she received in the lew months at
tendance at the Baptist training school
gave her command of herself und of
conditions and facts. She spoke hastily
upon the subject, "City problems and
means used by tho city church in meet
ing them." She spoke moro particu
larly of tho gospel kindergarten work
and the Grafts Guild for young ladies
carried forward by the First Baptist
church of Chicago. This church is a
down town church or at least located in
one of tho hard, rough parts of tho city,
with several dance halls and tho like
within a couple of blocks of the build

A Gloomy Outlook.
Unless weather conditions materially
change,between now and Sunday, the
display of Easter toggery will bo con
spicious by its nbsonce. This will not
only be disappointing to the many
ladies who hayo provided themselves
with spring frocks nnd hats, but to
tho young men who ordered spring
clothing for Easter wear. -

number of these are through trains,

taken care of i as might ronsonable be
expected in a sparsely settled country
uch as is western Nebraska.

Cattle Losses Increase.
"Reports of tho loss of cattle in tho
blizzard of Friday of last weok still
come in and the total will be larger
than at first predicted. The loss is by
far the heaviest experienced by cattle
growers sinco tho wintor of 1880-81,
and the financial loss will be severely
felt diroctly and indirectly in tho busi
ness circles of the west part of the
state. It is generally conceded that a
large number of tho cattlo died from
suffocation, the snow and the ice
covering the nostrils ; and mouths of
the animals and preventing thorn from
breathing. Ono man saya he had a cow
dowrt with a big bunch of snow and ice
over her nose and mouth. Thin ho
knocked off and in three minutes tho
cow got up and walked away apparently
The foreman of the 7-H-L ranch on
tho Loup telephoned to this city Wed
nesday that their loss was 953 out of a
herd of 2,500. Another big outfit in the
Hyannis soction lost 2,100 out of a herd
of 7,000. J. H. McGinloy and Simon
Brogan, living north of Paxton, lost
heavily, the former 250 head and the
latter about 100.
In several instances on farms nnd
ranches in the valley west of here the
snow drifted twenty feet deep. It

At' Julcsburg Wednesday Jorma
Atkins of Huntington, W. Va., shot
and killedvS. G. Stevenson and then
committed suicide. The trouble between
tu,e two is said to have originated oyer
Stovenson's admonitions to Miss Bessie
Hiloman, to whom Atkins had becomo
attached, that Atkins was not the
proper person for her t6 marry. It is
said that Stevenson told Miss Hileman
that Atkins oWqd him considerable
money, and when Atkins learned of it

turned the revolver upon himself.
Stevenson was married.

The fact that a man can put a thread on a piece of
pipe and couple it up with a wrench does not make
that man a Sanitary Plumber any more than the
fact that a man can write with a pen makes him an
expert bookkeeper. It takes years of study to
become a Sanitary Plumber.
I am an ncknowledgcd expert in my lino and this is
what you want to consider when giving out your
work this coming season.
The cheap job by inexperienced workmen means
that in a year or two the cost of that job will
be double the the cost of a first class job by n first
