the germ of youth to his old friend.

and the cause of it was the arrival at

new son. This opened the eyes of the
reporter and when he heard people
telling of the generous loads of coal

A Zig Time This Week,, and

good as ever held in Nebraska and

it to his iuterest to attend. The fact
that $6,100 in cash prizes are hung

looked for. In addition to the races
the management have arranged for a
treat for base ball lovers in the shape
of a game between Mink league teams
every day. Nebraska City today plays
Falls City and toniorow with the same
team. On Thursday and Friday Ne
braska City plays Clarinda and the
four games ought to be fast ones
as these three teams are playln
great ball now. There will be fine
music and plenty of it as an added at
traction for music lovers. Bus fare
from the city to the park Is but 15
cents and admission to the park is
fifty cents for adults and twenty-five
cents for children with an addition
twenty-five cents charge to grand
stand and quarter stretch. Autos,

Goes Buck to Hospital.
R. J. South who was so badly In
ured some time since on the M. P.
by the wreck of a hand car upon
which he was riding, has suffered a
elapse after getting well along on
the road to recovery and had to be
again taken to a hospital In Omaha
last evening. He was very severely
hurt at the time of the accident when
he w as caught under the car and
dragged a good ways, a number of
bones being broken and he being
otherwise incapacitated for work.
During the time he was in the hospi
tal at Omaha he became much better
and little doubt was entertained of
his recovery. Yesterday his. condi
tion took a sudden turn for the worse
and it was thought best to hurry him
back to the hospital for further treat
ment. It is hoped by his numerous
friends here that the trip will be ben
eficial and that he can again come
home and this time as a well man.

The City of Chicago.
Through the courtesy of the Bur
lington railroad, the Journal has re
ceived a copy of a work of consider
able Importance issued by the Civic
Industrial Committee of the Chicago
Association of commerce. The work
is entitled "Chicago." The work is a
collation of facts regarding the city
of Chicago and covers its location and
growth, climate and health, its facili
ties as a central market, Its transpor
tation facilities, its supply of raw ma
terial, its labor supply, Its wage earn
ers and their wages, its business con
ditions, its internal transportation,
Its location as a city of homes, its
moral and educational utilities, its
economical living and lastly, the plan
for a new city. The work is one of
great interest and well worth ex

the work and returns its thanks for
the same.

Poisall the Only One of the Men
Still at Large
Sheriff Qulnton last evening add
ed another one to those who have
been wanted for the trouble in an
uptown saloon last Saturday night
when he tooK John Jones Into cus
tody, Jones being taken at the grad
ing ramp of George Poisall near Ce
dar Creek. He made no resistance
but came back to the city peaceably
aud was installed in a call at the
county Jail for safe keeping; He Is
suffering from a bullet wound In the
leg which he received at the time
of the fracas.
When asked by Deputy Manspeak"i
why he was limping about, Join
replied that a horse had kicked him.
That was last night but this morning
he was anxious to have the deputy
summon a surgeon to- look after his
Injury. Mnns;:eaker told him he had
never had to hae a surgeon for a
horses's kick but his humor did not
appeal to Jones for a minute. It Is
learned that Jones had the bullet
removed from his leg by a surgeon In
Omaha shortly after leaving here on
Jones, Ilerold and Egan were all
arraigned this morning In county
court before Judge Beeson, C. II.
Taylor appearing for the state In the
absence of County Attorney Ramsey,
and the complaint read to them.
There are three counts in the com
plaint including one charging drunk
enness, one assault and another re
sisting and abusing an officer. The
boys all entered a plea of guilty to
the first count that of drunkenness
and plead not guilty to the other two
charges. Jones seemed in doubt as
to whether to plead guilty or not
but he finally made up his mind to
plead not guilty. He stated that be
didn't know whether he was guilty
or not as about all he remembered
was being knocked Into a corner and
getting the bullet wound In the leg.
Judge Beeson made the usual In
quiries as to whether the boys were
ready for trial and found they had
no attorney and that the cbbg could
not be taken up until at least to
morrow. He therefore remanded
them to Jail until tomorrow (Thurs
day) morning at 10 o'clock and fixed
the bond for the appearance of the
hoys at $300 cadi. They returned
to Jail in company with Deputy Man
speaker. The only one of the quartette not
now In the hands of the officers Is
Harry Poisall and the officers are
confident that he will be taken be
fore a very great while. A close
lookout is being kept for him and
his appearance will be the signal for
his being put under arrest.
It is apparent that the boys are
now commencing to realize the se
rious situation Into which they have
gotten themselves and that they stand
an excellent chance of being severely
punished for their foolishness. The
determination of tho officers to up
hold the law means that there will
be no let up In the prosecution and
(hat a severe penalty will be asked
Hearing Divorce Case.
In district court today Judge Travis
is hearing the divorce case of Nellie
Brittaln against Walter Brlttaln and
the case is being a hard fought one.
There is quite a bit of acrimony dis
played between the parties and the
case Is. warmly contested. The case
was brought by Mrs. Brittaln who
asked the custody of the two children
of the union, Oda Doris, aged 3 years
and Alta Pearl, aged 1 year. The
ground on which the divorce was
sought was non-suport, the petition
setting forth that the defendant was
an employe of the Burlington road
and earned sufficient money to take
care of the plaintiff and the children
but that he refused to to so. The
defendant through his counsel, Judge
Archer filed an answer in which he
made counter- allegations denying
that the plaintiff was a woman of
'taste habits but asserting that she
a tociated with bad company and per
.v.s of Ill-repute. The defendant
also alleged that the plaintiff had
been guilty of extreme cruelty to
the defendant In that she had struck
him at times and abused him and
that she was a person of vicious tem
per and vulgar habits. The defend
ant also asked the custody of the
minor children of the pair and al
leged the mother was not a fit per
son to have their care and custody.
The hearing of the case took up the
morning and a good part of tho af
ternoon, there being a great many
witnesses present for both sides. This
was the only matter which Judge
Travis passed upon today.
