There are people in the
world who ore afraid to
patronize a high grade
store , because they infer
that prices are higher than
in stores which are oper
ated on the hit and miss
plan sometimes satisfac
tion , more often disap
pointment. Norfolk people
ple are becoming educat
ed out of this way of
thinking. Parish's policy
of selling the highest
grarie of goods is having
a good effect , aud the
quality of groceries used
is steadily improving People
ple have come to know
that it's money saving to
buy goods where an ab

THE SELECTION of a piano is a
very important transaction. It is the
selection of a home companion for life.
If it is good and responsive it means
harmony and happiness. If poor it
means constant discord.
AS IN LIFE , there are affinities ,
some people attracting while others re
pel , EO with pianos. In certain pianos
there is a sympathetic toneaction qual
ity that is charming. Yon are aware of
the fascination every time the keys are
pressed. Yon may not be able to ex
plain it , but yon know it.
YOU INSTINCTIVELY love the
Ohickering piano. Everybody does.
They possess a power , richness and del
icacy of tone and action that is simply
"WE LIKE TO SELL these pianos be
cause we can honestly recommend them
to our best friends , not only believing ,
but because we know there is nothing
better made , they always give entire
satisfaction , we have been selling them
for 10 years aud the first one sold is as
good today as the day we delivered it.
"WE WANT YOU to become ac
quainted with these beautiful instru
ments. It is like meeting good people.
It makes yon better , exalts your ideals
of life and its possibilities. Should yon
become the owner of one , yon will enjoy
it and some day tliank us that we led
yon to it. Many customers about to buy
cheap grade pianos from competitors at
fictitious prices have saved from $100 to
| 250 consulting with us , why not yon ?

A party of young folks from South
Norfolk thoroughly enjoyed a picnic at
Taft's grove yesterday afternoon.
A jolly crowd of friends assisted Dr.
and Mm. Wm. Kiesau . .observe their
first or cotton wedding anniversary
' last evening at their homo on South
Eighth street. The evening was passed
j most on joy ably , with delightful mnslo
ns ono of the pleasures. A piano solo
by little lluobou , son of Mr. and Mrs.
A. II. KloBiiu , was especially enjoyed.
A week from today is the Fourth of
July and arrangements for Norfolk's '
monster celebration are going steadily
forward with the indication that such
celebration will bo far beyond anything
heretofore attempted in this part of the
state. Those who have not yet decided
to come to Norfolk should not delay in
making arrangements to spend the day
in this city.
Judge F. D. Foles of Ponca , who has
been appointed by Hon. J. J. McCarthy
as chairman of the congressional central
committee , is in the city and will make
Norfolk hia headquarters during the
campaign. W. W. Cooper has been ap
pointed deputy county Judge of Dixou
county aud will look after the business
of that otlico while Judge Fales is at
tending to the business of the campaign.
Another of those showers , this time
of 10-100 of an inch , fell this morning ,
with promise of more before another
24 hours. The o showers are quite the
regular thing and are not unwdcomo
to most people. They interfere
somewhat with the cultivation of crops ,
ball games and picnics , but these things
will bo given a chance when the showers
cease , as they are almost certain to do
in Nebraska during the coming two
Chief of Police Martin Kauo wa3 in
Stauton yesterday attending the pre
liminary hearing of the Carson gang ,
charged with having burglarized the
htoro of the Scott Mercantile company
at that place something more- than a
week ago. The prisoners have secured
p services of W. W. Young in their
defense and are making n hard fight.
They were about half through with the
preliminary hearing when Mr. Kane
left and he is of the opinion that at least
two of the prisoners will bo bound over
to district court for trial.
Two young Oakdalo boys wrote an
unsigned letter to 0 H. Torpin of the
Torpin Grain company , demanding
that he bury a $50 roll in a designated
place and threatening , on his failure to
comply with the demand , to kidnap his
child and "end your life with a bullet. "
A dummy package was placed as di
rected and a watch set , with the re
sult that the two boyn , one aged 17 and
the other 14 , were caught and are now
under arrest with the probability that
they will be sent to the reform school.
Both are sons of respectable parents
but have long been beyond parental
The citv improvement committee ,
having in charge the awarding of prizes
for fine lawns , flower and vegetable
gardens have not yet been able to make
their first examination of premises on
accountof the weather and other causes
that have interfered with their making
a tour of the city. They fjfad that thay
will have a considerable task on hand
to .make the necessary visitation and
have decided to request the property
owners to assist them. They will ac
cordingly leave at this oflice a book in
which will be registered the names of
those desiring to compete for any of the
prizes. Names should be brought or
sent in before the Fourth of July , after
which the committee will visit the prop
erty of those who have registered their
names. Anyone having a lawn , flower
or vegetable garden deserving a prize
should therefore see to it that their
names are registered at this office be
fore next Friday. The committee has
arranged for a display of the prizes in
the windows of the various merchants
making the contributions.

President Bucholz Unsuccessful In
Locating Alleged Confederate nt
Omaha , Prisoner Making the Beater
or it Behind the Bars.
The preliminary hearing of Whin , the
forger whoso bogus school warrants
were so deceptive hud who was arrested
yesterday , will bo held tomorrow morn
ing before Judge Hayes. Meanwhile
the prisoner reads the papers , remains
silent and"'oats heartily in his cell at
the city jail.
President Uuchola returned at noon
today from Omaha , whore ho wont to
investigate the alleged Sawyer , to whom ,
the swindler claimed , the money had
boon eoiit. No Sawyer was found to
exist at the address given , however , and
the play was undoubtedly nmtlo by the
imposter with the hope thnt ho would
bo takuu to Omaha and thus have an op
portunity for escape.
A now point developed in the chain
of evidence this morning which will
probably bo useful. The place hus been
found whore the forging was done aud
three women , who were present nt the
time , have explained ho thuy , by ono
way and another , were induced to aid
the crook in his fraudulent work , not
knowing or realizing what they did.
Winn , it scorns has been in aud about
Norfolk for some weeks , and has not
boon an infrequent visitor at this resort.
A. rather handsome fellow to look upon ,
well droshod aud willing to spend what
money ho had , it was little trouble for
the crafty grafter to persuade the
jnerry dames to help him out. By
putting up a hard 'con' of having lost
valuable papers and with ruin staring
him in the face unless they could bo re
placed , the sympathetic feelings of fem
ininity were touched and the women ,
after a few hours of practice , were
ready to put any old name to the war
rants which the skilful expert filled
out before them. As they exe
cuted his orders , the follow stood
over with instructions to'Write
heavy" and to "cut out those fine lines , "
and thus the characteristics which must ,
to a greater or less extent , creep into one
individual's every letter , were elimi
nated by bringing into service three-
different hands. Even a handwriting
expert would have been up against
a proposition to give testimony in that
Last night the prisoner was searched ,
for some trace of the missing money.
Every seam was carefully overhauled
and not a copper was found until the
little watch pocket in his trousers was
reached. There , nestling close under
the folds of the cloth were $15 00 in
bills , but that was all. As to the rest ,
not a word could be gotten from him.
When confronted with the Omaha fake ,
he closed up like a clam.
Wiun has every mark of fine breeding.
His clothing is of the best and neatly
brushed , His teeth are clean and
nicely kept , his face smooth shaven and
his hair closely cropped. His langnrge ,
when ho does talk , is is of the choicest
variety and his every word is weighed
with the care of a scholar. Physically ,
ho is as fine a speciman of manhood as
ono would wish to see. He looks like a
a college athelete , with a well proportioned
tioned body , a broad chest and muscles
