to arrest a man coming through on the

no man answering the discription could
be found, and the disappointed cops

Sheriff Eikenbary went to Council
Bluffs this morning to make an investiga
tion of the work done in that city by
rii-niir Tiiinn who was arrested here the
other day tor forgery, and an accomplice
uriWi-d vesterdav afternoon. The sheriff
had thirteen notes in his possession
which had been forged by Dunn, among
which he had four notes on two Council
Bluffs banks: Two on Officer & Pusey
and two on the Citizens bank there.
Last Wednesday after Duan had drawn
the -40 from the Cass County bank, hf
H. F. Wilson, went to the
Bluffs, whure it is said they worked the
banks. When only two cents could be
found upon Dunn's person after he wes
arrested, they wondered what had had
become of the money, but it is generally
supposed that the fellows "blew it in

Sheriff Eikenbary questioned Dunn and
he fave his friend away, that Wilson

was arrested yesterday afternoon and
shortly after the arrest and while on his

"I did not think the fellow would go

Pupils sometimes give very queer an
swers to questions propounded. Per
example: "The rules for capital letters
are I. V. X. L. C. D. M." Also, A con
crete number is a number that cannot
be uttered without the aid of a vowel
sound." This is not much of an error
when you consider the amount of work
and the number of questions given to
each pupil. Their answers, as a rule, are
good, and some of the questions pro
pounded would astonish an average
district school marm.
The greatest trouble with this examin
ation is the fact that the pupils have lost
a month's school, and the latter part of

Tremendous Cemet In the Heavens
A terrible ball of fire has recently been

be approaching the Earth at the rate of
one hundred and seven million miles per
day. Astronomers are somewhat alarmed
as to the direction in which it is centered,
and tell us that if it does not change its
coarse, it will surely be the destruction
of the earth. It is estimated to be twelve
times larger than the great planet Jupi

Universe. Astronomers tell as it will
