The fact that the tires of Mr.

authorities is very fortunate for the
owner as it will save him a neat sum
of nioiiry and is an excellent piece of
work on the part of bpth Sheriff Fis

been on the-lookout for the tire thief
for the past several days and has
been in touch with the authorities
of the neighboring counties to ap
prehend anyone offering the tires
for sale.
Li hiu daily rounds recently, a
Journal representative heard a gen
tleman fay "It's a nice mild winter,
we're having this summer." And,
really, stopping to think of it, doesn't
that express weather condition to a
nicety? We haven't heard it done

DRESSING the walls is one of the
arts of today. More money is facing
put into it by the average family
than, say for pictures or other wall deco
mtion. From the mere covering of an
unsightly wall surface, it "has grown to
the dignity of a decorative art.
Can there be any surprise, therefore,
in the fact that the public is evincing a
Crcaler interest in better wall decoration?
And having helped to lift wall deco

The condition of the high water
in the Missouri river has apparently
reached the flood stage at this point,
and the mighty river has spread its
turbulent waters over the bottom
land east of the Hurlington station
and is the highest that it has been
for a number of years.
The Missouri, following the rise
of the smaller streams throughout
Wyoming and Nebraska all of which
empty into the IJig Muddy, has been
swollen to flood proportions and yes
terday was rising at the rate of an
inch an hour for the entire day.
For the tirst time since the high
ivater of 1914 the waters of the
river has covered the larger portion
of the bottom land east of the Tur
lington right-of-way and threaten
to make that tract of land one vast
sheet of water. The flood has now
reached to the residence property of
A. G. Bach just east of the Burling
ton station and it is necessary to look
t"he aid of a row boat, which can be
the air of a row boat, which can be
propelled clear up to the -doors of
the house. The buildings on the
land of Chief of Police Manspeaker
are all surrounded by water and
the stream pouring through there is
quite deep. The eastern portion of
the base ball park has been visited
by the flood water as it has backed
up from the south and covered the
low lands in that direction. The
flood has served to back up the sew
er outlet near Kocky Point and this
water has spread out in the direc
tion of the road to th ferry.
In Omaha the flood has done quite
a large amount of damage to resi
dence property in the north part of
the city and families have for the
past two days been engaged ia mov
ing their stock and household effects
to higher, ground where they will be
safe from the floe .!.
On the east sido of the river from
Folsom south to a point opposite this
city the Burlington is .maintaining
close watch to check any attempt of
the river to break through the pro
tecting rip rap and all day esterday
a force of workmen were engaged in
strengthening the protections against
the ravages of the stream.
This afternoon a dispatch to the
Burlington from Forecaster Welsh
at Omaha, states that the Missouri
river was falling at Sioux City and
approaching a standstill at Omaha
and in twenty-four hours should
show signs of falling at that place
and also at Plattsmouth.

The last of the week Guy and W.
A. Ileil. two of the young farmers
residing west of the city made a suc
cessful coyote raid that resulted in
securing the old coyote as well as
four young ones. The coyotes were
shot at. the farm of Uudolph Ileil,
whore the den was located in an old
straw stack.
For several days the old coyote
had been noticed around the farm
and a few mornings ago was discov
ered in the hog lot at the farm but
when an attempt was made to se
cure the animal it made a getaway
and on the way carried oil a nice
fat chicken.
A number of the chickens on the
farm have suffered since by reason
of the raids of the animal.
Attempts to locate the den of the
coyote failed until Friday when Guy
and his brother, W. A. began to stir
up the straw stacks to see what they
could unearth and came to one that
had a hole in it which they pro
ceeded to investigate. The hole w.u
apparently partially filled with water
but a few pokes with a pole brought.

Riled with fight and put up a strug-
le before it was possible to shoot it.
The young ones were then shot and
the scalps brought in to the office of
the county clerk.
