There are people in the
world who are 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 peo- .
pie are becoming educat
ed out of this way of
thinking. Parish's policy
of gelling the highest
grade of goods is having
a good effect , and 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
solute guaranty goes with
every purchase. ,

"What is it that gives a man undying
fame ? What ief it that makes us revere
a fovr brilliant men of letters over the
great arniy of mediocre and even very
good authors ? It is that they stand for
excellence in' ' their various lines of work ,
that each' has reached as near the ideal
as hos'seemed under the circumstances ,
It is the same excellence , this excell
ing all others , that has given the Chick-
ering'piano its remarkable place among
pianos. The Ohickering Is not merely
one of several very good makes , but is
decidedly the very best that it is possi

from the money considerations , it
pleases us to have in our ware-rooms a
piano that is a constant sconrce of delight -
light not only to visitors but to our
selves. The more closely one T > ecomeB

ing tone the less can , ho , be patien with
the tone of any other , make'whatsoever. .
In the tone of this remarkable piano
there is a body , a volume , a singing
quality and n sweetness that can be
found in no other instrument.

Joseph Weber and Marguerite Weber
cauio to town yesterday to do sonic
shopping. They are man and wife.
Mrs. Weber took souio butter and
eggs Into the Fair store and' after dis
posing of her produce sot the box that
had held it down by the counter and
proceedeil to fill it. When an inventory
of the stuff was takou it was found
that the box was the receptacle for three
cans of expensive colTeo , two cans of
syrup , three boxes of toilet i-oap , two
china dishes , two gallon cans and one it-
pound'can of apples , and a granlto ware
coff'eo pot. She attempted to remove
a cheap glass from the counter but was
caught in the act by Mr. Shurt/ , who
threatened to call the officers and lnvvo
hr placed under arrest unless she paid
a quarter for the glass. She wont to
Weber and secured the money with
which to settle. Weber then endeavored
to luovo the box of goods from the store
and [ pliico them in his buggy. They
were allowed to proceed to the buggy
whou an officer placed them under ar
rest and began a boarch , finding the
goods above enumerated in the egg box.
The woman attempted to drive off while
they were investigating Ijer husband
but she was B topped. Previous to the
arrest she wad asked by Mr. Shurtif
her name was not Mrs. Webor. She
denied that she was and gave "Shorn-
melphiug" or some such name as hef's
and claimed to be a neighbor of the
Webers. She was trapped in this
story afterward when Weber was asked
if she was not his wife and acknowl
edged her as such. Weber was taken
before Justice of the Peace O. F. Eiseley
where he gave bonds for their appear
ance at 1 o'clock this afternoon.
The penalty for the crime of which
the Webers are accused is indemnity in
twice the amount of the goods stolen
and a fine of not more than $100.
An appearance , was made at the appoint
ed hour and a plea of guilty was enter
ed , the defendants pleading intoxica
tion as a cause of the larceny. They
were taxed $10 and costs and made res
titution to the owners for goods stolen.
The value of the goods taken was said
to be between § 0 and $7. The Webers
live 11 miles northwest of the city and
make frequent shopping visits to Nor
folk. The Fair store has suspected
them of being responsible for other loss
es but this is the first time it has been
possible to fasten a charge on thorn that

SUICIDE AT STANTON.
An Old Lady , Once Wealthy Dies in
Poverty by Her Own Hand.
Mrs. Anna M. Eberling of Stanton
committed suicide by taking strych
nine in her room on the afternoon of
July 1. For a number of years Mrs.
Eberling has been prominent in Stanton
county. Eighteen years ago bhe came
to the county with her two fions from
Brooklyn , N. Y. , and purchased two
sections of laud , erected extensive build
ings and engaged in the ranch bnsincHu
Her husband was formerly a wholesale
liquor dealer of Brooklyn nnd was
killed by , a dynamite explosion. Tl o
sous became disainated and Mrs. Eber-
ling removed with them hero in hopes
that a change would wean them .from
evil habits. When she came hero her
wealth is estimated to have been from
between 60,000 and § 80,000. The sons
soon exhausted her ready money and the
ranch was mortgaged and later sold to
satisfy the same. The fcons drifted
away and died. Mrs. Eberling re
mained in the county contrary to fre
qnent requests from a sister residing in
Brooklyn , who is wealthy.
Since losing her riches she has lived
partly from her own efforts and partly
upon money received from her sister.
Her actions at times have been some
what erratic. On several occasions she
had threatened to take her own life.
Yesterday she went before E. B. Baer ,
a notary public , and had a document
drawn making disposition of what prop
erty she had. At 1 o'clock she visited
the postoffice , called for her mall and
returned to her room , At 1:15 : the told
the people living in the lower story
that she was going to lie down and ask
ed them to call her at 2 o'clock. At the
appointed time , finding the door fas
tened and being unable to arouse her ,
they summoned assistance. The window
was broken in nnd the old woman was
found lying dead on her bed. She had
made all preparations for death , disrob
ing , putting on night clothes , removing
her false teeth and then , taking the
poison , lay down bn her bed to die. On
the table was a bottle of labeled strych
nine. From a rafter near her bed
rope was hanging and it is supposed she
first contemplated taking her life in
that manner. A coroner's Inquest was
held and a verdict rendered in accord
ance with the above facts. .

tbo game , and the program as published
below will bo carried out.
From the program it will bo scon that
a great feast has boon provided for Nor
folk's guests tomorrow. Originally it
was intended to hnvo the parade at 10
o'clock in the morning , but owing to
the fact that n number of trains do not
get in until after that hour it was do-
oidcd to postpone this feature until 1
o'clock in the afternoon , so that all may
see it. Beginning nt 11 o'clock in the
morning there will bo a succession oC
events taking place all the timn. While
the exercises are being held in the Aud

hour a band concert will be given , by

which will also'be started at 2 o'clock ;
AtHKtho ! ) ball game between the
Omaha Invincibles and the Norfolk

park , where Reed's Fourth regiment
band will furnish the music.
In the evening baud concerts will be
held in different parts of town , by the
Twenty-second Regiment U. S. band
and Reed's Fourth Regiment band ,
both of which will render programs of
high character. The fireworks display
will be no significant feature of the
