EAGLE AGAIN VISITED BY BURGLARS.
Village of Eagle Visited by

Eagle, Neb., March 11. Special
to The News. The village of Eagle
feels lonesome if it does not have no
up-to-date safe-blowing or burglariz
ing act every other week. Eirly this
morning burglars affected an entrance
to the general etore of Beach & Ven
ner by removing the glass from one
of their front show-windows and made
away with about $o0 worth of pants,
men's shoes and gloves. There is but
slight clue to the perpetrators, al
though officers have been put to woi k
upon the case.
Sunday mornijg about 9 o'clock the
two 6tory building on upper Main
street occupied by Dr. McCandless i s
an office wasdiscovered in flames. The
fire department soon had two lines of
hose stretched ana steady streams of
water at work on the flames. Al
though many predicted the building
was doomed, it required but. a short
time to get the fire under control.
As this was the first opportunity for
the fire department to show its mettle,
the citizens are highly pleased by the
. The Audience Was Well I'leased.
a large and appreciative audience
was present last evening to listen to
Mrs. Keysor's lecture, "Christ Child
on Art," and enjoy the stereopticon
The exercises were opened by no
organ solo by Miss Kessler, played
with her usual delicacy and precision
of touch. Then followed a trio,
"When the Tide Comas In," beauti
fully rendered. The last number on
the musical program was an exquisite
lullaby solo, sung by Miss Street in
her usual faultless style. .
Mrs. Keysor'a "Art Talk'- was
thoroughly enjoyed and the beautiful
copies of the old and new masters
brought out by tne stereoscope, was
a revelation of hitrh art that we do
not often have the privilege of enjoy
ing. The art department of the
woman's club deserve great credit in
securing Mrs. Keysor.
PERRINE IS GIVEN HIS LIBERTY
Ianocent Man Does Six Months' Time In
Wednesday afternoon Governor Hoi
comb commuted the sentence of young
Hale Perrine and he was released
from the penitentiary. This is the
young man spoken of in The News
a few days ago when Attorney H
Koster of Niobrara was in the city in
the young man's interest. Perrine
was sentenced by Judge Ramsey last
August for helping a man named Sul
livan rob a 6tore at Louisville. He
is a young man of good family and was
the victim of bad companions. Per
rine nas always protested his in
nocence and the governor was in
duced to exercise his clemency by
reason, chiefly, of 'a long affidavit
made by Sullivan in which he swears
Perrine was entirely innocent and that
he simply used him as a tool after
the robbery had been committed. The
mother of the unfortunate young man
is lying dangerously ill at her home
at Niobrara and his own health has
been seriously impaired.
An I'nfortunate Accident.
The injury which little Pauline,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. N. Grif
fith of Omaha, sustained to one of her
eyes a few weeks ago, was thought to
be recovering, much to the relief of
her parents and friends, but word was
received by relatives in Plattsmouth
today stating that it was found neoes
sary to remove tne injured eye as it
was not healing properly, and that the
operation was 6uccessf Jlly performed

this condition of things did not hap
