Taken Shortly After a Daring
CASE GOES TO DISTRICT COURT
Gives the Name of William Howell and
Enters a Pica of Not Guilty Six
Witnesses Examined by Justice C.
The home of Mrs. Louise Uckerman
on Second street , four blocks south of
Main , was entered by burglars yesterday
afternoon about C o'clock and two gold
rings were stolon. The burglar gained
admission by cutting through the wire
that covered one of the windows. Ho
turned things topsy turvy in his search
'or valuables but as far as could bo
iscortalned nothing but the rings wore
aken. Mrs. Uckermann was awny
from homo at the time and entered the
wck door just as the thief was depart-
ng by the front way. She immediately
saw that the house had been broken In-
o and followed the man , who was loov-
ng , up town and secured the service of
Chief of Police Kane who made the
arrest at the cohior of Fourth and
The man was put in jail over night
and this morning was given a hearing
before Justice of the Peace 0. F. Eisoley.
Ho entered n plea of not guilty and six
witnesses were called and examined ,
County Attorney Mapcs being present
o prosecute. The man gave his uamo
as William Howell and his ago as 81) )
years. Ho is a man of medium height
and wears a sandy beard and mustache.
The value of the rings stolen was given
at $20. The prisoner stated that ho was
Iruuk but hod .not entered the house
as charged. Justice Eiseley concluded
after the evidence was all in that there
was sufficient grounds on which to hold
the prisoner and bound him over for
appearance at the district court and in
default of bail he will bo committed to
ihe couLtjail. .
It is thought that the prisoner may
lecide to plead guilty when court meets
n June as he can then receive a sen
tence immediately. If he decides to
make a fight the case will not come up
until the October term of court when
there will bo a jury , and in the mean
time the prisoner will probably have to
be kept in the county jail. It is believed
that ho will prefer to receive a [ sentence
at the Juno sitting than to lay in the
county jail until October with the prob
ability of receiving a sentence to the
penitentiary at the end of that time.

Sturgeon is the piano man.
Music is language. The composer
takes familiar sights and sounds such
as the rippling of the water , the
rustling of the leaves , the gentle whisper
of the summer breeze , the flitting of
bird and insect , and translates them
into tone. Our enjoyment and under
standing of any subject depend upon
ago and experience. The musical is so
elastic that it bears its message alike to
thejhappy child , the ambitious youth ,
and the matured intellect. For each it
is the epitome of individual experience.
One likes the dreamy and tender , an
other the bold and spirited. One is
moved by the bright and sparkling , an
other by the broad and serious. Each
may find their favorite style at the
Auditorium tonight and tomorrow night ,
and much to interest besideso8 music
is something to be enjoyed by all.
