.next number, The .Midland Concert Co.
is the best concert company on the

by all the bureaus and they take the
Midland because it's the largest bureau
and because they can make more
money, and because the work is easier

There was an exciting time in Hlue
Hill for a short time Sundav evcninir.
I when it was discovered that County
j Treasurer Frahm's general store had
been broken into by burglars. Man-
' ager .John Hay of the store made the
discovery upon entering the store at
; about S o'clock Sunday evening. He
made a hasty exit from the store and
.summoned a crowd to surround the
building. It was some time before
anyone in the crowd could lie found
with sutiicient courage to enter the
j store and search for the burglar. Lew
Hohrer of Red Cloud happened to be
there and when Mr. Hay procured a
light he went into the store with him.
They found that the burglar had en
' tered the cellar through the coal
chute and from there made his way
upstairs. Upon coining back through
the store Hohrer discovered a man
crouching between the ends of two
counters and dragged hig forth. The
burglar made no resistance and pre
tended to be very drunk, claiming that
he. thought lie had gotten into a box
car. The burglar proved to be one of
j two tramps who had been loitering
around town during the day, and
whose actions had aroused suspicion.
No trace of the other tramp was
found. The burglar, who gave his
name as Fred De Hois and said he
came from Wyoming, was given a
hearing in Hlue Hill Monday and
held to tho district court. He was
brought to Red Cloud Tuesday after
noon and lodged in jail.

build county buildings, or oiler a cash
consideration for their removal from
one town to another, where the mat
