the fact that there was a tire ot

JJCV. Henderson, of Cook. Liebraska,' hai! " f,jrnied and commenced ' to lind
its wav out of the building and it
was di-cided that fur; her delay would
be dangerous and accordingly the
glass in the front door was broken
and entrance secured to the build
ing. The wood was found to be
blazing very strongly and the flames
were shooting clear to the ceiling.
r.uckets were procured and if it
had been possible to secure a proper
water supply the fire would have
lasted euly a few seconds, but as it
was there was considerable delay in
getting sufficient water from the
pipes over the sink to put out the
fire. The electric wiring also burn
ed at tli is time and caused some ex
iciter.ient for those who were in the
i building, but the work of John Mar

,1'ft the juice and allowed the tire
(fighters to carry out their work,

(moments after the telephone alarm

reach much of a figure as the heavi

a sin- 11 section of the wall of the
bakery, where the flames destroyed

Mr. Merger feels very grateful for
the prompt work of the citizens and

of extinguishing the flames, as a few
moments more would have caused
the fir? to get a good start and be

the pleasant custom of holding one

pleasure, the climax being reached
! ; in the one of last night.

The new constitution of the state
as well as the recent enactment of
the legislature provides that the
state supreme court may request the
district judges of the state to sit
with t he high court on hearing cases
that may come before them and to
review the cases that are brought
to trial in the supreme court.
The state supreme court yester
day requested District Judge James
T. Iiegley of this city to come to
Lincoln Monday and take part in the
deliberations of the court. This is
the first time that a district judge
has been so honored and the recog
nition of Judge Begley is very pleas
ing to the residents of this district,
over which he has presided for the
past six years.
The work of Judge Begley on the
bench of the second judicial district,
composed of Cass. Otoe and Sarpy
counties, has been of a very high
standard and the splendid ability of
the able jurist has been recognized
over the state, where his decisions
have reached and during his term of
office he has grown to occupy the
position of one of the leaders of the

with interest by the fans of the
school and the local followers of the
game feel confident that our boys
will be able to carry off the honors
of the diy.
