THE SELECTIpN of a piano is a
very important transaction. It is the
selection of a home companion for life.

A. , T. Weber , news of whoso sickness

who for many years made Norfolk his
home , died nt Fullerton , California , on
Friday , Juno 18. Ho hud been confined
to his bed for the past two months , suf-
eriug from lymphatinouin. His end

o the la t. Norfolk contains many
friends ot Mr. nnd Mrs. Weber who
will be exceedingly sorry to learn of the
atul termination of his illness.
The members of the Knights Templar
were entertained by the Eastern Stars
ac Must hull last evening. A protrim
if music v , as a pleasant feature of the
ttveuiug and delicious refreshments were
icrved. The star effect was used in the
nrraugement8t > the chairs being placed
n the shape of n huge , five pointed
star. As a sovenir of the occasion , a
nininture picture of Colonel S. W.
Hayes , standing beside a Knight Temp
lar banner , was presented to each guest.
Mr. Hayes is the oldest Mason in the
s'ate nnd a past grand master. A year
ago the Knights were the hosts and
their guests returned the compliment
Practically all of Norfolk expects to
turn out nt 5 o'clock and welcome the
Omaha trade excursion and the Twenty-
Second Regiment baud. This band
served in the Philinpines , going across
at the same time that the Madison com
pany under the command of Captain
Jens made the trip , and they will fur
nish the music for Norfolk's Fourth ot
July celebration , all of which is suffi
cient reason to draw out the crowd.
The excursion will come in over the M.
& O. end it is likely that their long stop
in the city will be nt the union depot.
The commercial men will take supper
in Norfolk and will leave for the east
over the F. E. & M. V. at 7 : JJO. On re
quest of Prusident Luikart of the Norfolk -
folk club the business men of Norfolk
will meet the Omaha visitors and enjoy
an exchange of fellowship.
Great interest is being developed in
Norfolk's Fourth of July celebration
and the outlook is for an exceedingly
clever time to all who will participate
Colonel E. H Tracy has been chosen by
the executive committee as marshal ol
the day and he has had the experience
in directing parades and marches that
fully qualifii s him for the duty. Indi
cations are that almost every business
house in the city will be represented by
a float in the trade display section and
the parade "committee desires that none
of them should be left out of this feature
Those who expect to be represented in
this section and have not yet notified
the committee of snch intention should
do so at as early a date as possible that
they may make arrangements accord
ingly. Details of the program are be
ing arranged nnd this promises a day of
thorough enjoyment to all.
The rain that .fell yesterday and last
night amounted to little more than a
half inch. The ground had been so
thoroughly soaked by preceding showers
that it had the appearance of being
much more , and much of the water
that fell is still on the surface. No
doubt as to the potato crpp remains
There will be potatoes to feed millions
in this vicinity. Almost , every one
p'anted potatoes owing to the failure of
that crop last season , nnd already the
ground in the patches IB cracking open
by the force of the magnificent tuber
that are developing. New potntoe
as largo a a couple of fists are not un
common and the growers ore given to
speculation as to what the harvest wil
really be by the time the season for new
potatoes ordinarily arrives. Indication
are that additional storing facilities fo
the crop will be In demand. Other
crops , unless it be small grain EO fa
advanced that it is lodging , are pnttini
forth a magnificent growth because o
the abundant moisture.

At 2 o'clock this afternoon a Httlo
group of men stood on the south stops of
ho Hiqh school building , snuggling up
lose to the bricks to keep out of the
old , raw wind and incidentally wait-
ng for someone with n key to come
along nud , open the door.
Six of them were young men who
mvo como to Norfolk to take the com
petitive examination for admission to
ho U. S. Naval academy at Annapolis.
Three of the others were members of

The mental examinations began this
afternoon nnd will probably take up the
greater portion of tomorrow. Physical
examinations will be given afterward.
Owing to the fact that no one seemed
to know anything about arrangements
lor the use of the school building , Mr.
O'Connor and the janitor being out of the
city , some other place had to bo found
and the city hall was finally secured for
the work. "If I ever have anything to
dojwith another examination , " said Mr.
Davis , who was quite provoked by the
situation , "it won't be in Norfolk. "
Of the candidates for the appoint
ment , Milo Drnemel of Fremont Is the
only one who was here to take the last
examination in this line. He passed
well , but lacked in weight.
