The cases are exceptionally rare that

Owing to the repairs being made on
the telephone system , wires on the west
side are badly crossed , which proves an
annoyance to every subscriber. It
would seem as though workmen might
be a little more careful in handling
wires under "such circumstances. Per
haps the matter will be straightened
out today , but if the past few days is
any indication telephone patrons should
not indulge in too much hope.
Miss Hattie Linerode was pleasantly
surprised at her home iu South Norfolk
last evening by a company of young
people. A pleasant evening was spent.

Stafford , Miller , Parish , Barnes , Ding-
man , Slsson , Russell , Rembe , John-
eon. Misses Schwenk , Roland , Rns-
Roll , Florence and Mabel Estabrook ,
I Taylor and Newman. Refreshments of
ice cream , cake and fruit were served.
The boys with air guns and sling
shots are frequently very careless with
these dangerous toys and their action
has been the cause of considerable com
plaint in various parts of town. Their
ambition seems to be to injure some
living thing or see how close they can
come to doing damage or hurting a
playmate without doing so. They
should either learn how to use these
toys or should be deprived of them.
The May party given by the Elks last
evening was in every way a success.
There was a good attendance and all who
participated iu the festivities had au
enjoyable time. Dancing was in Mar-
quardt hall while social games were
carried on in the club rooms. The hall
was beautifully decorated with bunting ,
flowers and ferns. Music was furnished
by the Italian orchestra and this'featuro
of the entertainment was unusually in
spiring. Punch , ice cream and cake
were served during the evening. Danc
ing was continued until 1 : ! ! 0 this morn
The prospects of a railroad for Boyd
county has increased the value of most
property and the fact that one man
killed another at Lynch Thursday in a
fight over a dog indicates that the value
fo dogs has increased with other prop
erty , as it IB popularly believed that few
ilogs are of more value than a man'Mlfo.
Henry Sttudmau and William Gray ,
farmers near Lynch , got into a quarrel
over a dog and Sandman sought to cud
the dispute by grabbing a pitchfork and
making for his enemy. Gray retreated
at first but later picked up a club and
h't Sandman over thojhead. Sandman
dropped like a log ami was carried into
a farm benne whore ho died noon after *
wards. The coroner aud sheriff took
charge of the case and Gray gave him
self up. Considerable excitement was
occasioned by the tragedy.
A. Kimball Barnes , son of Judge and
Mrs. J. B. Barnes of this city , is captain
of Company D , of the university cadet
battalion at Lincoln and is feeling jnbi-
ant because his company won the
Omaha cup yesterday afternoon at the
annual competitive drill of the battalion ,
with C , B and A companies coming infer
for honors iu the order named. Cap
tain Barnes won a $20 gold piece as a
share of the honors accruing to his com
pany. KiuibaH's Norfolk friends fool
that their heartiest congratulations arc
due him for the showing made by Com
pany D. The company was hardly con
sidered the leading factor in the contest
from the fact that , owing to sickness ,
Captain Barnes has not been able to
Irill them an thoroughly as desired.
One week practically contains the drill
ing that ho has been able to give his
command this spring , but the results
iemoustrate that the week's instruction
was thorough and elective.
The Armour branch plant hero has
something of a record as a chicken-
dressing establishment and some speedy
killings are recorded. Thursday II. A.
Hemlebou , with Rudolph Korth as
helper , worked 10 hours , and during
that time caught , killed , dry picked ,
tipped , pinned and placed in cold water
! ! 15 chickens , all ready for the market.
Forty-five of the fowls were finished
during the first hour. Besides this all
the feathers were barrelled and saved
during the day. The killing and rough
picking was done by Hemloben who can
stub and jerk the feathers from a fowl
in about 10 or 15 seconds. A knife with
a blade an inch long and % inch wide
is used to do the stabbing , and is run
into the fowl's brain near the eye so
that , although it may make considerable
fuss after being stuck , it experiences no
pain. The average day's work for a
rapid man in the leading plants of the
country is said to be 300 birds ft day , in
this instance the average being bettered
by about 85.
Water Commissioner 0. F. W. Mar-
qnardt is probably having more kicks
registered with him than any other man
iu the city at the present time. The
cause is the change in water rentals as
the result of the new ordinance and the
canvass recently made to ascertain what
the water was being used for and ar
ranging the rates accordingly. The
consumers who have had a lower rate
naturally object to paying an increase
that sometimes amounts to a doubling
or trebling of the old one. The new
comissioner will probably stick for what
he knows to be right under the ordi
nance , and the complaints may be
brought back to the council. It is not
doubted that there will be an increased
demand for meter service as a result and
it may be that it will operate towaH
a reduction of the number of water con
sumers , as some will probably favor re
turning to the pump method of procur
ing svater rather than pay the tax im
posed by the new ordinance and rates.
Consumers might bo able to save the
commissioner some trouble by making a
study of the ordinance before they carry
their troubles to him.
When the West Side whist club
started in with its games last fall an
agreement was made that at the close
of the season that half of the members
who had won the lowest number of
points should provide an entertainment
for the half of the club who had earned
the largest scores. Last evening the
losers paid the penalty of their incom
potency at cards , by giving a banquette
to the victors at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. W. N. Hnse. The conquerors as
sembled at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Morris Mayer and marched in a body to
the scene of their glorification , carrying
banners , bells , horns and other things
that would remind the vanquished of
their defeat. Twenty-eight persons sat
down to the long table and the banquet
was served in courses , being elaborate
enough to suit even the fastidious taste
of the superlative half of the club. W.
H. Bncholz and John R. Hays acted as
toastmasters , at the proper times calling
upon various members of the winning
side to tell how they achieved such a
victory. The names of the winners are :
Dr. and Mrs. Bear , Mrs. N. A. Rainbolt ,
Mrs. Warrick , Mr. and Mrs. E. P.
Weathorby , Mrs. E. A. Bullock , Mr. and
Mrs. J. K. Boas , Mrs. W. H. Bucholz ,

The citizens of Niobrara held a meet
ing last week for the purpose of organ
izing to push the old town to the front
with the advent of the railroad. It was
unanimously decided that there should
be a monster Fourth of July celebration ,
at which time the coming of the rail
road would furnish all the inspiration
to enthusiasm that patriotism may not
impart and the two combined would
serve to make the celebration a marker
iu the town's history.
