GOES TO UNION IRON WORKS
Contract Aivnntcd for llnlldliifr tlin Crul.
The navy department has decided to
award the contract for the building of
the protected cruiser Milwaukee to the
Union iron works at San Francisco.
When the bids were received they were
referred by Seeretaty Long to the
board of construction. The board went
over the subject and then submitted a
written report to Secretary Long. This
report points out that the' Pacific coast
has received only one of eight vessels,
when It was the evident purpose of
congress that at least two of the tcsscIs
should go there in case the price was
not excessive. In the present case the
bid of the Union tnirks is S'.',8'..,S,000,
which, the board points out, Is con
siderably less than -4 per cent above
the contract price on similar ships
built in the east. The law allows t
per cent additional on ships built on
the I'aclHo coast.
The first of the new type of five-Inch

muzzle velocity reached the exception
ally hlgu figure of s.hjio feet per sec

foot tons. This Is sixty-live per cent
more muzzle energy than guns of the

is sufllclent to pierce seven inches of
Krupp armor at the muzz.lc nnd five

An act of heroism unsurpassed In
the annals of the state in the expression
being used by the Sioux county people
in connection with the performance of

Suddenly Miss Cottinan felt a strange,
uncanny movement under her feet.
Again it cuiuo, tills time mi strong that
the pupils looked up in terror. Step

strongest soul. The White river was
out of its banks. The school building
was already surrounded and the rising
flood was hurling its jniwer against
the frail frame structure.
Instantly Miss Cotttnan's purpose
was formed. Across the expanse of
water, tugging at his long rope,
was a horse which had been ridden by
one the pupils to the school. .Spring

waist deep to the horse's side. Then

when a great wave struck the build

she pressed on anil fastened the rope
to the saddle and then to the building,
giving it the aid of the horse'b strength.
For three quarters of uu hour she

.dx years old committed suicide in 'a
horrible manner at his home just south
of Wuco, Neb. The body was found
lying beside a pile of burning rubbish
in a field near the barn, blackened und

It seemed that in order to make his
desperate work more certain he first
tied Ills legs together with wire and
then fastened the wire to a fence post
near a pile of rubbish. He then must

dead before the tire had any effect
upon his body.
The coroner's jury rendered n verdict
