Culminates In a Conflict.
As the culmination of a week's com
bat over the floating of class pennants,
a hand-to-hand conflict took place
Wednesday at midnight between the
juniors and seniors of the Louisville
high school. The senior Hag was llred
upon by the juniors; a scuffle ensued
in which neither side seem to have
pained any prestige. Superintendent
Gaines found it necessary to interfere
and a compromise has been reached.

STIRS UP VETERINARIANS !
Believe Law Regulating Vcferirarj Surgerj
His So.T;S Serious F i 2 s .
A Lincoln correspondent ays: ' Vet
erinary surtreons are stirred up out
the new law. pas-d by the last legis
lature, to regulate the profession.
"The law was gixen little attention
until a few days ao win n it was an
nounced that warrants would be issued
for those who ate not complying with
"This announcement tpened the
eyes of the horse doctors, and they be
gan to examine the provisions of the
new law more closely.
"Some of the provisions are rather
drastic. One clause makes it neces
sary for all graduates of another state
to pass the examination in this state,
regardless of the years they base Wen
devoted to the profession. If the horse
doctor does not pass the examination
lie Is barred from practice in this state.
"Veterinarians believe that the law
should be modified so that the diploma
of a recognized college should be ac
cepted. They say that a state exam
ination of this kind is a poor test of a
man's ability. The iue.slions are
technical and will stagger an old prae
tioneer while a graduate from college,
not so familiar with the practical end
of the business, has them at his ton
gue's end. When he gets down to the
political side of the question he gets
The veterinarians believe the law is
too drastic and they will try and see If
there is not some way around the more
rigid provisions of the act w hich w ill
not inconvenience old veterinarians
who are not graduates of Nebraska.
"They assert that the law. as at
present framed, gives the state univer
sity an unlawful monopoly of the busi
ness. Other states, they claim, recog
nize a diploma issued by an old and
well established institution."

Of some infernal swindling machine.

A VERY COMMENDABLE ACT
SHE TRIED PLAYING GHOST RIPRAP FORCE GETS SCARED
A Young Lady of Lincoln Gets Badly In

The Lincoln News tells of a story of
a hunt for a ghost that inhabits a Lin
coln house which resulted In a dis
tressing Injury 10 one of tlie partici
pants, is related by a prominent Lin
coln doctor who refused to give names.
The adventure happened early Sunday
Two citizens who had heard that a
certain uninhabited dwelling in the
neighborhood was inhabited by spooks
had their curiosity aroused to such a
pitch that they determ'ned to investi
gate. The Investigation, however,
proved disastrous to the wife of one.
The latter learned that her husband
and his friend were going to Invade
the mysterious dwelling and she deter
mined to have a little fun at their ex
pense. Watching for their departure
she waited till they were within the
alleged haunted place then she quickly
threw a sheet over herself and follow-ed.

the house her husband was upstairs
waiting for ghosts and his friend dow n
stairs, cautiously performing the same
stunt. When the white robed ligure
without warning was seen standing in
the door this man was for a moment
paralyzed with fear. Then he got
quick action on himself.
Picking up a heavy bucket near he
threw it with considerable force right
at the head of the "ghost," and ran
from the house. The bucket struck
the woman 011 the temple and the
alleged apparition fell heavily to the

unconscious on the lloor, her head In a
pool of blood. He was still more sur

necessary to send for a physician to
take four stitches In order to sew up
the ugly gash in her head.

Cattle Too High.
John l'etrle, live stock agent for the
i'.urlington, tells the Lincoln Journal
that he does not look for a heavy
movement from the Texas ranges to
the northwest ranges of cattle this
spring. He says the Texas owners arc
asking too high a price for t heir cut
tle more than the range men of the
northwest will pay. There may be a
small movement, but ho does not look
for It to equal past movements. Later
on the Texas owners may drop their
prices, and a late movement of some
magnitude may follow. The ranges
were not sold short this year, and
their output will be considerable even
with small receipts from the south.
"Old Muddy" Washes Out Large Logs
Nearly One Hundred Feet In Length.
SHOOT FROM WATERY DEPTHS BELOW
Nine of These Monstrous Logs Observed
Yesterday Afternoon. Theory Advanced
.That River Is Resuming Old Channel.
ttime tue riprapplng force were
weaving mats yesterday afternoon to
place In the river where It is cutting
the Iowa banks, they were suddenly
startled from their work by seeing a
long black object which appeared to
be several feet in diameter, leap up
from the black depths below and pro
ject several feet above the water.
They were very much relieved, how
ever, to discover that the source of
their scare was only a slimy log about
one hundred feet In length. During
the afternoon they observed nine such
logs, ranging In length from eighty to
one hundred feet, shoot out of the
water and lloataway. The logs seemed
to come from the bottom of the river,
ami the theory is advanced that the
river Is resuming an old channel in
course of which It Is washing out
The "Old Muddy" still continues to
wasli away portions of the Iowa banks
above the riprap work put in by the
Burlington last year, but the force of
men, under the supervision of I). U.
Woodring, superintendent of bridges
on the Burlington, arc now In a posi
tion to carry on the riprap work with
less difficulty, as the river Is rapidly
resuming its normal height; having
receded over a foot since yesterday.

A man wliocan reach down from the
pinnacle of fame, or lofty position,

greater man who knows when to set
aside tlie law In the name of suffering
humanity than the wise statesman
who makes the law. A man who from
his lofty station hears tlie cry and
listens to the pleadings of a dying wo

Last week I'nited Stales Marshal
Warner of imalia received word that
the young wife of Harry Welch, one of
the men who was convicted with Rev.
Ware In Hie land fraud cases, was
dying in a hospital at St.. Joseph, Mo.,
and was pitennsly pleading to see her
husband. After consulting with
.Judge Munu'er, Marshal Warner tele
graphed to Attorney (leneral Moody
asking for permission to take the
prisoner under guard to mm: his dying
wife. Moody cold-bloodedly replied
that there was no law warranting him
granting such a request. The big
hearted marshal's sympathies were
now aroused and he wired to Congress
man Hlnshaw to see President Roose
velt. He reached the white house at
an early hour and, as though the plead
Ingsofthe dying woman had already
penetrated the white house walls, he
was aumiuen. 1 lie telegram was
read by the president who Immedl
atcly wrote tills order to Moody across
the face of Marshal Warner's message
"Under authority of the president
you are directed to send prisoner
Welch Immediately under proper guard
to St. Joseph, Mo., to see his wife who
is fatally III. J will take the cmsc
quences for my act."

Some of the large department st ores
in the large cities send out offers to
form clubs and promise to sell goods
cheaper than they can be purchased of
tlie home merchant. A club of this
nature was formed in this city and
after they had purchased several bills
of goods the members found they were
not getting the goods as cheap as they
could purchase them at home, so the
club lias gone to pieces and the mem
bers are once more doing their trade
ing with home merchants. If these
people would form a club at home,
bunch their cash and purchase as large
bills from the home merchant as they
send away for they would soon find
they could purchase much cheaper
here than elsewhere and they would
be leaving their money with home
merchants, aiding them In paying
their share of the tax burden and
building up the town. However peo
ple cannot expect to purchase goods
as cheap from the home merchant on
credit and have him wait for a year or
perhaps longer for his money, cheap
as they can buy for cash. Pay cash
and you can always buy here as cheap,
If not cheaper than you can by send
ing away from home. Try It and be
convinced. --Nebraska City News,
