Care of the Usual Routine
Work as Well.
The first thing to occupy the at
tention of the city council at the
meeting last eTening was numerous
communications asking that a per
manent wall: be placed in front nf
the A. W. Bradway residence. On
motion these were referred to the
Streets, Alleys and Bridges commit
tee for -investigation.
Then followed a petition signed
by a number of people in the west
part of-town, asking that west Mar
ble street be opened up from 14th to
Maiden Lane. This went the same
J Then came a petition from L. C
Scharp asking permission to move a
small frame house from block 46 to
block 33. which would place it in
.the fire limits. This was allowed
with the understanding that it was
only for temporary occupancy.
, , t Coming next was a petition ask
ing, for the vacating of the portion
nt Pearl street front on lots 1, 2, 3.
and 4 in block 33. to the curb and
that portion of third street facing
lot one of the same block, extending
forty.-feet south from the intersec-.
tion of Third and Pearl street. Af
ter much discussion it was conclud
ed to have the entire council go and
view the place before a vote should
be taken on the matter.
Harris then asked that Mike, Sed
lak be-given a hearing, and what he
had to 6a y was. that he could not get
the .water company to install water
service, in his place. His protest went
to the Fire and, Water committee..,

The petition which had been be
fore the council the week before ask
ing for grading near Henry -Herold's
place. was 'granted.
Wants Fire Truck
Councilman Harris, of the Fifth
ward, called the attention of the
council to the wholly inadequate fa
cilities for fighting fire, and'with but'
few members in the volunteer fire
company the- matter of getting the
hose carts over the hills of the city
is more than we should expect of
the fire boys and besides if they suc
ceeded there would, be a considerable
delay In getting there and much val
uable time might be lost. When every-minute
counts, as it does at a
fire, it would seem good business
policy that the city provide itself
with effectual means of conserving
time, and he cited financial condi
tions which he thought would jus
tify the purchase of a fire truck. Af
ter a bit of discussion the matter of
a fire truck was allowed to drop.
Wire Burned. Off
When It came (o the Lighting com
mittee's report, the superintendent of
the Nebraska Gas and Electric com
pany made explanation that the
cause of the lights being out Satur
day night was due to the burning out
of a light wire.
R. E, Patterson of the Finance
committee, gave a resume of the con
dition of the city's finances, which
showed us to be up against .the mat
ter of solving some pretty large fi
nancial propositions in the near fu
ture, in the line of refunding some
bonds which are drawn to mature
June 1st of. this year, an which it
will be Impossible to cancel by pay
ment thereof. The mayorr city-clerk -
and' treasurer were made a commit
tee to look after this matter.

TAKEN TO LINCOLN SANITARIUM
Prom Tuesday's Dally.
Eugene Williams, who has been
feeling badly for the past few weeks.
and whose condition has become so
serious It was thought best to take
him to the state sanitarium at Lin
coln, was accordingly taken to the
capitol city this morning, being ac
companied by his sister. Mrs. Nell Jay
and Sheriff C, D. Quinton. "Shorty"
as he is familiarly known has come
to his enfeebled condition of mind
simply through intemperate use of
a nerve .medicine prescribed for him
a few weeks ago when his nerves
needed attention, and it is thought
that with, proper care and attention
in the hospital at Lincoln for a
few weeks he will regain his normal
senses. He is an excellent barber
and has been employed In various
tonsorial parlors about the city from
time to time throughout the years
when he continued to call, Platts

THE WISDOM OF WOMEN
Economical women read the news
papers in order to save money. They
read the advertisements, study them,
become acquainted with best things
that they need now or will need
sometime in the future, and then
buy always at a paving. Many of
our customers will never cease to
feel grateful for the service rendered
them by our advertisements by which
the remarkable properties of Trin

BUREAU NOTES I
Young Lambs-May Need Aid.
The youiif? lamb may need aid in
getting started to nurse. It will need
little to eat until an hour or so old.
Then it should be made to imrfe,
and if it is weak and indisposed it
may need help. It is important thru
the shepherd see that the young
lamb gets hid of the teat and not
strings of wool. The careful shep
herd will trim the wool away l'rciii
around the udder of the ewe. At
the same time it is well to trim
around the tailhead of the ewe re
moving foreign matter that' may
cause worms. Likewise, the trim
ming operation may as v.e!l include
the toes of the .ewe, which should
be trimmed once a year to prevent
foot and rot. Iimhs begin to eat
grain feed early, if the ewes are
fed in a low box. As soon as the
lambs learn to eat they should have
separate feeding places.

chicks busy. Feed green feeds in
small amounts. Feed earlv and late.
Keep brooder temperature regulat
ed fo chicks will not chill over
