an altercation which ended In an
appeal to the god of war and a gen
eral mixup between the contending
parties. In the progress of the melee
Hlgley suddenly was seized with a
reversion to nature or something that
way and sank his teeth in Batman's
arm. The other boy was some sur
prised and shocked at this demon
stration and made the welkin' so of
ten spoken of by the poet, ring with
his cries and appeals for help. The
several youngsters who had been re
fereeing the fight then Interceded
and haled Hlgley off. The Batman
boy's arm was so badly bitten that
the services of a surgeon were re
quired to dress the Injuries. This
morning Batman visited Judge Arch

set forth. This evening Judge Arch
er will adjust the scale3 of justice
and hear both sides of the con
troversy, rendering unto Higley that

giving full and complete satisfaction
for the row. Higley has been in
considerable trouble at different
times with different employers and
with the school authorities and It Is

The Order oi the Eastern Star last)
evening held a very largely attend
ed meeting at their hall on Main.
There were four candidates for Ini
tiation into the order, viz: Mr. and
Mrs. Guy McMaken, Miss Clara Wey
rlch and James Mauzy. Following
the Initiation a banquet was held at
which a number of toasts were re
sponded to. Those speaking Includ

above Mrs. Redfern of Lincoln and
Miss Moore. A very pleasant time
was had and the meeting was a
most successful and entertaining one
in every respect.
Not Kntirely a Failure.
Ceorge Kaffenberger, the well and
favorably known farmer from south
west of the city, came in this morn
lng and was a passenger on the
morning train for Omaha and South
Omaha where he has business mat
ters to attend to. Mr. Kaffenberger
states that he is afraid that fruit
suffered very severely from the late
freeze and he looks for a short crop
although not an entire failure. Th
crops are also suffering a great deal
from lack of rain and he is hopefu
that a change In the weather will
soon be In sight. Owing to th
hard crust which covers the surfac
of the ground It is difficult to har
row the ground. Below this crust
there Is sufficient moisture and the
ground Is In good shape but a warm
spring rain Is needed to start things.
No Particular Loss in Either
An alarm of fire yesterday after
noon about four o'clock took the
fire departmcut to the home of Otto
Herold on Rock street, between
Sixth and Seventh, wWre some trash
was stored In a corner of a shed had
taken fire and threatened to do some
damage. Neighbors with buckets,
however, had the fire out before the
department arrived. The damage
was nominal, although it might have
been rather serious had an oil can
which was standing In the midst of
the blaze blown up. The can had
several gallons of oil In It and when
the bovs reached the scene It was
still quite warm and well smoked
up. If it had gotten a little warmer
It doubtless would nave exploded
and blown the blazing oil over the
shed leading to its destruction and
possibly that of several adjacent
barns and outbuildings. The origin
of the fire Is a mystery although It
probably originated from a small
trash lire which had been burning
out in tho backyard within a few
feet of where the flames started in
the shed. Small children playing In
the neighborhood have also been sug
gested as possible originators of the
blaze having been possibly playing
with matches. The tart was a long
time getting to the tire owing to the
steep climb up Sixth street hill coup
led with a small number of meii'on
the cart. Thcro were a large number
of small boys pulling but the firemen
were woefully shy in numbers.
The department In 'the morning
had been called to the hill overlook
ing the Burlington yards whore' a
brush fire had been burning for a
short time. The fire spread along
the face'offtthe bluff until it threat
ened some outbuildings perched on
the top when the owners of the prop
erty became alarmed and Sent In a
call for the department. The boys
responded and played several streams
upon the fire for a few moments when
the danger was removed. As a mat
ter of fact, a few men with shovels
could have put this fire out without
much trouble or time and It seems
like a waste of time to call the de
partment for such trlval matters. For
the beauty of the city, It would be

Fencing is the.question you are about to consider. Whether
it be Field, Poultry or Garden it is necessary that you get just
what is best adapted for your purpose and to give the best results.
If you think of getting poultry fence, let us show you poultry fence
that is about three times as heavy as the ordinary Diamond Mesh
fence ond at very little additional cost. This fence is heavy
enough to turn stock if necessary, and will turn smaller chickens
than the Diamond Mesh. New car of fence will be here in a few
days, so in order to be sure to have what you want at the time you
-want it, let us set it around your yard.
