The above is in relation to the plans of the Nebraska Lighting company to connect the plant in this city with the Iowa plants and to furnish first-class service to all the cilies along the line of the Burlington. The lighl inp com pany has contemplated the re building of J he plant in this city with a view o supplying service to the different towns along the line of their extension, as Ihe coal supply is much easier to reach from this city than any of the others in which they have plants and .the plant can be oper ated cheaper here than in the other places.

VALUABLE COW SHOT BY SOME RECKLESS HUNTER A few days ago Byron Reed, who resides a few miles south of this city, sustained a severe loss when one of his most valuable cows died of blood poisoning as (he "result of being shot by ome parly or "parties, while she v was grazing in the pasture on the Reed place. The shooting occur red Thursday and Sunday the cow died, as the shot had penetrated into her so far as to cause the blood to become poisoned, and despite. all that could be done she lied. This loss is quite heavy for Mr. Reed and is an outrage that should be punished, as too much reckless shooting is indulged in on the different farms without regard for the fact that a person or stock is liable to he hit by the flving bullets, and in many cases little regard is given the right siif the people owning the land on which the shooting is done.- The parties committing the outrage at the Reed place, if found out, should be punished to the fullest extent of the law and made to re spect the property rights of others if they have not got enough common sense to recognize the difference, between right and wrong. The Holly orchestra departed this afternoon via automobile for Louisville, where they are to play this evening at a social dance. They will also appear at Weeping Water tomorrow evening, playing at a danco to be given at the Phil- pot hall in that city. Has Painful Accident. From Tuesday's Daily.

The wound was dressei by a surgeon and Herb returned lo work, although the arm was quite sore from the flVcts of the injury. WIFE-BEATER AT WEEPING WATER Neighbors Very Much Incensed Over Matter, but No Arrest Has Been Made. Quite a great deal of excitement occurred in our neighboring city of Weeping Water Tuesday night, according lo a report from that city. A man by the name of John Morgan became involved in a con troversy with his wile over Ihe princely sum of 5 cents, and as a result of the argument they came to blows. The wife of Mor- an, it seems, desired lo have the tamily laundry brought home, and as Ihe bov that usually does this service was not around she se cured a delivery man to bring' it lo the house, and paid him T cents for doing so, which greatly incensed the husband, who up- iraided her for her ext ravangance in expending this amount of money and struck her, when the neighbors, hearing the noise of the conflict, rushed in and stop ped the fracas before any serious lamage could be done. The woman was taken lo the home of one of the neiahhors and Ihe man warned to keep the peace in Ihe future. The citizens of thai community were quite m- ensed over the affair, and were ery urgent to have proceedings taken against the man for the outrage, as it is understood m Weeping Water thai the man has een in the habit of raising sev eral assorted brands of trouble around his home, although this is the first time the matter has been wrought to the attention of Ihe public. It is not likely, however, that the officials will lake any ac tion in life mailer as long as the man will keep the peace and cut out the disturbances. . 0 U.
