TO A FINISH
Good Weather Would Enable Con-
tractor to Get Work Out of
Way in a Few Days.
From Tuesday's Dally.
The long task of laying the sew
ers and repaying Main street is fast
drawing to a finish and if the con
tractor. Cert Coleman, is given a few
days of good weather he could have
the base of the paving all in and the
job ready for the laying of the brick
which will be the last touches to the
The first part of the summer when
the work was started Mr. Coleman i
was hampered in the preparation for
the laying of the base by the rains !
and the necessity o: the water com- j
pany having to move their mains
over and it was some time after the !
time desired before the actual work ; p
of placing in the sewer and the pav-j
ing was started. I
In the last few months, however, I
the fine summer weather permitted
the work to be hurried and now it is
onlv a matter of a short time until
the street can be used as far as 6th
street and in a very brief time the
last block will have the base ready
and the street open for traffic.
The sewer has several finishing
touches to be made before it will be
ready but has been all completed as
far as Main and 6th streets and here
there will be the necessity of laying
the pipe lines as far as the alleys for
the additional inlets to the sewer '.
while in a number of the places :
where the fire hydrants have been
placed there will be some small work j
to be made and the inlets to the sew- .

In the block from Sixth to Fev-

ment as to a parkway or not, seems
to have been won by the advocates
of the parkway as the forms are be

traffic will not permit very extensive

GARAGE AT UNION
Burglars Make Off With Dczen Cas

Early Sunday Morning.
from Alonday'B Oatlv
The visitations of burglars in our
neighboring town of Union have been
very frequent in the past, and un
like the proverbial lightning that
does not strike twice in the same
place, the unwelcome visitors are
not so particular and some time Sun
day morning entered the Dowler ga
rage and for the third time robbed
The articles taken consisted of a
dozen casings and as far as could be
ascertained by Sheriff Quinton the
robbery occurred some time after 3
o'clock in the morning as at that
time Mr. Dowler left the building
and retired to his home and the cas
ings were still in the building at that
time. On opening up the garage yes
terday morning it was found that
some one had forced open a window
in the rear of the building and had
made away with the casings. The
tracks of an auto were found near
the window and the indications point
to the fact that the parties who pull
ed off the stunt had escaped either
to Lincoln or points to the south.
When the robbery was discovered
several hours had elapsed and had
given the parties an opportunity of
making their getaway from the
