from Geo. F. Bid well , manager
of the Nebraska and Wyoming di

stating that trains No. 4 and 5
could not be extended to Valen
tine as they had been put on as an
experiment and had not been re-
numerative between Norfolk and

probably be cut off or rather cut
off to a paying point soon.

ance and Rock county follows.
Quincy LeeMorrow gave an in
teresting talk at Chapel on Wed
nesday morning on the subject of

The young people of Cherry

of 78. This is 6 or 8 more than
was enrolled last year and more
are expected to arrive.
There are three states represent
ed in the normal : Nebraska , Kan

to show that the normal is becom

are ready , if not eager , to take
advantgage of it.
