Sneak Thief Steals
Purse From Pratt
On New Year's day, some sneak 1
thief stole a purse from S. A. Pratt
at the pool room containing some $7.50
in money. Mr. Pratt inadvertantly
left the pocketbook on the counter
while he went to the back part of
the hall and when he returned it was
gone. There was a large crowd in
the hali at the time and the thief
took advantage of the fact to snatch
the purse. He lias a pretty good idea
who did it, but lacks evidence neces
sary to fasten the guilt on the party.
Judge Hunter
Loves Florida
Our old friend, Judge Hunter, in
sending in dough for another year of
Northwestern visits, writes thus en
tertaingly of his new home at Zephyr
hills, Florida: “I wish you a Happy
New Year, and hope you will brace
up under the democratic administra
tion. Everything is democratic down
here. Chet Tracy and wife are en
joying themselves in our sunny cli
mate, eating grape fruit and oranges.
They visit Tampa on the Gulf tomor
row. I enclose $1.50 on subscriotion.

you to. Regards to all our friends,”
Warren Miller Wins
Over Burwell Man
Warren Miller, our local wrestler,
went up to Burwell last Friday and
in a mat game with Wilson, a local
wrestler of that town, won in two
straight falls, the first taking 19 min
utes and 50 seconds, and the second
fall in 6 minutes. This evening Mil
ler goes against Mogenson. a Bancroft
product, at the new opera house, and
our people may confidently expect a
lively tussle, as the Bancroft man is
6aid to be one of the best locals in
the state.
The purse, minus the money was
found on the atreet later.
Brickyard Burned
Loss About $12,000
Last Thursday evening about 6:15,
while our people were engaged in eat
iDg their suppers, an alarm of lire
was turned in, proving to be the big
brick-making plant of Henry O'nlsen
in the south part of town. Within a
few minutes the entire plant was in
flames and by 7 o’clock all was in
ruins, save two or three adjoining
small office and storage buildings.
The yard was situated some two or
more blocks from the nearest tire plug,
hence sufficient hose and water pres
sure could not be secured to more than
help save a few minor buildings on
the outskirts of the yard proper. The
loss entails the great sheds over the
brick kilns, the tine machinery recent
ly installed to do the latest and most
up-to-date work, including an *1,800
Corliss engine only placed a few
months ago. There was practically
no insurance on the plant, the ratsson
such being so high as to make inj
surance impracticable. The origin of
the tire, so far as we can learn, was
in two younger sons of Mr. Ohlsen,
who had been sent to fill a can with
gasoline from the tank, and without
realizing the danger attached thereto
upon mislaying the cork to the can
lighted a match to find the same, re
sulting as might be expected in a con
flagration. Tlie tire came so suddenly
that the boys had scarcely time to
escape from the building, one of them
having to break a window in the rear
to getout, and only then escaped with
ids face and head seared with the
flames and the hair on his head par
tially burned therefrom. This makes
the largest lire loss ever suffered by
Loup City, and a very heavy loss t•
our enterprising contractor. Of
j course, the millions of brick in store
I and partially burned are as good as
j ever, and that is so much to the good,
■but it will be some time before Mr.
! Ohlsen can hope to have the yard in
| shape it was before the fire, but as
you can’t down a good man, Mr.
Ohlsen may be expected to rise
Phoenix-like from the ashes of the
past and continue to be the great
j financial factor to Loup City and the
public in the future that lie has been
| in the many years gone by.
Ducks by Parcels
Post Don’t Go
Says Grow
Lee Brothers thought to play a
practical joke on Postmaster Grow at
the beginning of the parcels post
regime, New Year’s Day. Hitching
a halter strap to a big fat duck and
labeling the same with a card desig
nating the party to whom sent, the
boys carried Mr. Waddler to a mail
route wagon and dumped her in.
Carrier Williams being onto the game
led the thing into the sacred precincts
of Uncle Sam and tied it to a table
leg while our busy Nasby was sorting
mail. Dar spotting the parcels post
contribution from a distance, pro
claimed that under the new law it
could not go. “Eat it, then, and send
the Drice to the consignee,” respond
ed the carrier; “it lias no name of con
signor.” After looking at the feath
ered product and voicinir the inner
man demands, the jolly postmaster
could see no other wav, unless lie pre
sented it. to the ubiquitous carrier
law expounder, and as nothing in the
law gave him the right to sell, give
away or throw out live mail matter,
he concluded to hold fast to what he
had and await the action of the de
partment on the course to pursue.
However, upon nearer exam, he was
able to settle the question to his en
tire satisfaction and says it made line
eating, and will settle more vexed
questions coming his way in the duck,

Had to Take OH
Stolen Underwear
Last Friday a party came down
from Arcadia and entered a complaint
against a fellow who had been hang
ing around town with having stolen a
suit of underwear from him at our
suburban village to the north a short
time previous. Our officers being
“from Missouri-’ had to be shown,
hence the fellow was taken over to
County Attorney Starr’s and made to
'disrobe and the stolen suit was found
on him. It was pealed off, given to
t the owner, and $l.dO found on the
fellow was taken to indemnify
the “shown” and the fellow was turned
loose with his few remaining “sum
mer” togs on. He was threatened
with a sentence in the county bastile,
but as tie signified that would be a
pleasant passtime during the remain
ing wintry days and ease him through
the cold weather, he was turned loose
