Manager Spear of the Auditorium
has made arrangements to carry South
Norfolk patrons , who purchased 00-
cent tickets , home free after each
entertainment. This should be quite
an inducement to the theatre-goers
in that pnrt of town who have
heretofore found that with n 20-cont

house paying half of the extrn expenses

carried off the palm as the "swellest
nigger" there. The ladies presented
the hostess with a beautiful china

The mother of Oscar Uhle , the east
end grocer , died quite suddenly this
morning at 0 o'clock at his homo. She
hnd been iu her usual health uutil four
or five days ago , since which time she
has experienced a repugnance for food
and has eateu little or nothing. The
name of the deceased wns Christiana
Schroth nnd she was 7H years of ago.
She has been mnkiug her home with
her sou in this city for the pnst year.
She has nnother son in Omaha who has
been telegraphed for and the funeral
arrangements will not be completed un
til he is heard from.
Manager Spear's private office at the
Auditorium is about completed and ho
hns neat nud convenient quarters that are
very much of an improvement over the
old arrangement. There is now room
for two desks , besides the chairs ana
other nrticles of furniture needed.
The walls have been adorned with
posters and the 'room presents n very
neat and comfortable appearance. In
addition to the telephone a private con
nection has been made with the stage
and the manager can direct the affairs
of the house at both ends without leav
ing his oflico. A gas heater will be in
stalled to keep the temperature right.
Bonesteel , S. D. , Pilot : N. H
Darten of Washington , D. O , United
States geological surveyor , was in the
city Saturday. Ho made a drive over
the reservation with a view of locating
the line of the glacial drift. The
Burut Rock , four miles west of Bone-
steel , wns found to be the southern and
eastern extremity with the western , ex
treme in the Black Hills. Ho was very
much interested iu the largo bone in
Dr. Kenaston's drag store nnd pro
nounced it the ulun of n mastodon.
While hero Mr. Darteu located the elevn-
tion of Bonesteel as compared with the
Missouri river at Wheeler ferry , a point
twelve miles northeast of hnrn. nnrl
found it to be 850 feet higher.
A Winsido' dispatch says that the
farmers in that section nro having n
serious time with hog cholera or some
other fatal disease. Some farmers nre
reported to have lost their entire herd
and they feel the loss keenly owing to
the high price being paid for pork.
Some precaution should bo taken to
prevent Its spread. At the pres
ent prices for pork au epidemic
of hog cholera through the state
would bo disastrous , not only to the
producer but to the consumer. One
Wiusido farmer brought three hogs and
throe loads of wheat to market , and
is said to have received more for the
three animals than ho did for the three
loads of grain. The moral is plain :
Turn the wheat into pork.

vealed thnt Liorman had bt > on in bed at
the time mentioned and it further re
vealed the fact that the Brndy boy wns
alive nnd well. It is not believed that
Ferguson would intentionally circulate
a story that wasn't true and the natural
deduction is that "Billio" had boon geeing -

that it was the best entertainment

torium since the season opened.
The hotibo that giectul the com

light. The production in quite
similar to others of the snme chnrnctor
that have been given popular runs this
season , in fact soinoaro of the opinion
that dramas based on scones in Arkansas

almost monotonous , and n desire for a
changehns been expressed. The vari

Fred King of Edgowatcr pail ; is suf
fering from a bad leg , the result of an
encounter with an infuriated hog on
Tuesday. He wns in the pen endeav
oring to separate the hogs nnd was
driving them with n club when the
lender of the herd objected to the
proceedings , turned on Mr. King
nnd before ho could defend himself or
escape , the angry nuimaljhad bitten him
ssverely in the leg. The beast's sharp
tusks penetrated to the bone and tore
nway the flesh to the depth of two or
three inches. The wound wns given
prompt surgical attention and it is
hoped that it may not prove serious.
The bite of a hog often proves very
poisonous and gives a lot of trouble to
the person bitten but it is hoped that in
Mr. King's case this may not result nud
the wound may not prove worse than
any ordinary fiesh wound.
H. E. Hardy has received through a
letter from Mrs. F. E. Hardy of Eureka ,
Cal. , news of an accident to Mr. Hardy ,
of which his Norfolk friends will bo
pniued to learn , although pleased to
know that it had no serious results. Mr.
Hardy is employed in a lumberyard nt
Earekn nnd while engaged in his usual
dntitB on Friday , the 10th , ho had the
misfortuue to fall , backwards , from an
elivated tramway to the ground , a dis
tance of 20 feet. As Mrs. Hardy says :
"It is a marvel that ho was not in
stantly killed , but as in happened there
was no lumber just there ivud ho struck
the ground. A launch was telephoned
for nnd he wns brought across the bay
to a doctor's ofllco. An examination
proved that his injuries wore not ser
ious , two ribs being loosened from their
fastenings but not broken. His side ,
back nnd bins nro bruised nud sore , but
it is thought that he hns sustained no
permnneut injuries. " A later report
from Mrs. Hardy snys thnt Mr. Hnrdy
is getting along nicely nnd will , it is
thought , soon bo nble to work.

The drift of events iu domocrntio
quarters indicates thnt the party will bo
ready to outer another pictorial cam
paign two years from now. Many will
remember the posters issued by that
party some years ago to illustrate how
the people were taxed by the tariff. The
poor man's dinner pail , his coat , socks ,
shoes , knife and fork , and other articles
of every day use were represented with
the tariff charges attached. Mr. Bryan
nud other orators carried n collection of
these things with which to illustrate
their points. They were effective , too.
Anyway the people believed whnt wns
said nud they decided to got rid of this
tax by putting the democrats in power.
They were rid of a portion of the tax :
they were rid of n nezcysity of using a
dinner pail ; they were rid of n good
many other things not on the demo
cratic cntnlogne , chief of those being the
prosperity of the country. They com
plained bitterly of their lot , aud free
soup houses and Coxey armies were es
tablished , while business failures and
financial crashes were overy-dny occur
rences , nnd calamity , depression and
want stalked through the laud. As was
before remarked this method of cam
paign wns successful then , but it will
not bo ngnin. Voters will not forgot in
an ordinary lifetime what domocrntic
tariff reform really means nud they will

cracy with n similar contract in this
