'HIE NORFOLK NEWS : FRIDAY , MAliCIl ! tf , 1)0 ! ) . Taken at 2 O'clock This Morn ing In a Wine Room. WERE HAVING A GAY TIME OF IT. She's Better Drunk Than Sober Has Sbont Her Money For "Glad Rags" and Couldn't Pay Fine Promised to bo Good. [ From Tuemlay'B Dally. ] There's n now coon in town. Her name is Alice Jones , if what she says is truo. Alice cornea from Valentino , where her man is at. That is , ono of her men. She comes pretty nearly being n valentine in a sort of a way , herseif. Ono of the times when she came the closest to it was last night. She had almost forgotten about her man iu Valentino. But that was an easy thing to do , as long ns there were sev eral others right nt hand to help her forget him. Ho is black. Those nro white. Evidently affable Alice wanted to forget. At leant she was trying hard enough to drown remembrance in the wine room of n swell saloon when a copper ambled in at 2 o'clock this morn ing and took her away to jail. Alice hated to leave the wine room. She was having a bettor time than she could iu jail. The men who were spending their money to satisfy her tajto for the wine that is red , hated also to have her go. Nevertheless she went. This morning , in n beastly state of sobriety , amiable Alice awoke. She was brought up before his honor , the court , with tears in her tender eyes. The charge placed against her was vagrancy. With a silken bcarf that hung about her neck , Alice wiped her glowing glims. " Oh , sir , " she pleaded. "I'm willing to do anything .for a liv ing. " The policeman agreed. The story was told and Alice wept It was noted further that Alice hud been acting unbecomingly on the streets for n week back , that she had , indeed , been intoxicated. Alice was crafty. She mot this argument against her character , squarely iu the face. "Oh , Police , " she said in a tone that even af fected her own heart , "I'm more dis orderly when I'm sober than I urn when I'm drunk " "For heaven's sake , then , " it was suggested , "stay drunk. " And Alice was willing. Finally the court decided that it was worth about $8.10 that time last night , and while Alice thought it was worth at least that much , too , she insisted that she had no money. She admitted that she had had money when she struck the town but had spent it for good looking clothes. As an evidence she pointed to the spring jacket on her back and the new shoes on her feet and the spring hat upon the table. She promised to be good , if they'd only give her another chance. She said she wouldn't buna with Jane any more , and that she never had wanted to be in Jane's compauyauyway. As ono last dart at her name , a police man thrust the insinuation at Alice that her husband was white. This she re sented. With quick decision she brought forth from her waist a photo graphic likeness of her husband in Val entine. "My husband white ? " she re peated. "No sab , my husband's just as black as I am , judge. " And that was pretty black. Heavy team harness , built to last and at reasonable prices , at Paul Nordwig's harness shop. THURSDAY TIDINGS. O. W. Mihill was in Neligh Tuesday.

PIANO ON A BOX CAR , Drayman Has Difficulty in Placing Instrument in Union Depot. Millard Green , tbo drayman , whose specialty is piano moving , placed n piano , yesterday , in the living rooms of he Union depot. The instrument sounds very ordinary , mt it was by no means an ordinary undertaking in fact it was u 'donco' of of a job and took Green and quito n 'orco of men the bettor part of the day to accomplish the task. In the first place it must bo understood that the iviug rooms nt the depot are up stairs and the railroad company probably did not contemplate that its employes would over desire or require a piano there , for ; he ordinary means of entrance and exit were never planned to ncommodnto the entrance of the ordinary modern piano , and the drayman was compelled o plan to overcome these odds against his undertaking. Fortunately the company had been generous with means of light and air , and the walls of the upper story are perforated with generous window open ings. A measurement of those openings indicated that they were wide enough and high enough by removing all the sashes. But they wcro high above the ground while the force of gravitation held the piano as close to Mother Earth as it was possible to get. The problem therefore was to overcome those discrepancies , and Green did it. A box car was shunted onto the track immediately contiguous to the depot by a train crew interested iu the problem and by the use of planks the piano was elevated to a position on top of the car. From there to the window was another long hoist , but to a man who can place a piano on a box car it may be believed that the task was not beyond his ability and the instrument was finally safely deposited in the room where it was de sired without mishap. An interested crowd watched the undertaking and alternately encouraged and discouraged the drayman nnd his force with comments relevant and ir relevant.

ONE-THIRD EXCHANGE IS GONE. How the Men Work Through the Night Hurrying to Mnko Long Distance Gossip Easy The Cold Weather Mnkos It n BltSlow. [ From Tuesday's Dnlly. ] Hundreds of miles have been ridden and driven in Norfolk pinoo Sunday morning tlmt never would have been irnvolod if the Press bnlldlrig hadn't nirnod. And almost ns many hours of time have boon wasted by people in getting about town , that might other wise Imvo boon profitably spent. It is all duo to the fact that people haven't boon able to talk over the telephone wires that wont down Fourth street md since they've hnd to talk , they've uul to walk. Quo third of the Hues running from the Norfolk exchange passed along in front of the building that was burned md every one of thcso was molted off oloso. In n conglommoratod not work they were left duugling and tangling over the scone of the lire. That mount hat people could no longer connect at ho central olllco by the more turning of i crunk nnd that if tkoy oared now to do ulkiug up town , they would have to do t in person. Perhaps as great a class UH has boon nconvouioncod by the disordered wires , ms boon tlmt of the housow.fo who ms heretofore depended upon the phone for groceries and nicatB and notions of all soi ts and at all times of the day. Now , when she thinks of nn irticlo that she needs in a hurry , she is 'orced to put on a cloak nnd walk out nto the cold. Another typo of person incommoded : ms boon the iniiii who cared to know liow the trains were running at South Norfolk. Instead of being able to leurn when a train is Into , people are now compelled to make the two milo trip to find out. But the telephone people nro repair ing this break as fust as men can do it They hnrdly stop to out and they nron't taking time out to sleep. All night long , as cold as it was and with the stiff north wind whistling down the nvenuos , men kept up the work of re pairing the broken lines on Fourth street. In n little house of canvas , merely made to keep out the wind , n man , with n lantern to light him , con tinued to connect the severed metal nnd to put things into shape so that by this morning many who hud been lonesome yesterday worn able to call up their neighbors or their friends iu another part of the city and talk about the weather. Manager Sprecher estimates that by night the cables will bo possibly in working crder. SHE DIDN'T ' KNOW WHAT TO DO , Couldn't Make Up Her Mind , but Circumstances Helped Out. [ Prom Thursday's Dally. ] This strenuous life is something awful without n doubt. With throe or four possible engagements on the same even ing , a young lady is rather up against it to know just which to take and which others to reject. One of these young ladies who lives in Norfolk.had just such n problem to solve last night. There wore a string of enjoyable places to pick from. She hardly knew what to do. Into the domain of this girl there came along naturally and calmly four different suggestions for the evening's entertainment. She thought of a musical concert , she thought of prayer meeting , she thought of a dance and likewise a little neighborhood gathering that was going on next door. They were all inviting. She knew she would enjoy any one of them and that the number was limited to one. She hnd a long talk with herself trying in vain to decide which direction to take. Finally the whole matter was decided for her nnd she didn't go to any. Shortly after supper a man came to the door. He was shown into the par lor. The head of the family got sight of him. That settled it. To none of these places would that daughter of his go. And she obeyed. She had to. Instead of spending an evening pleas antly out , the poor girl had to sit there in the parlor and pout. Incidentally , ol course , she entertoiued the visitor. He couldn't understand it at all and before long ho went away. This afternoon the girl is in the sumo perdicameut that held her yesterday. She is wondering what to do tonight. The difference is that there is no place iu sight not even prayer meeting. LOOKED'AT BRIDAL VEILS , Green Pair Afford Fun For Girls Bu Turn the Tables. [ From Thureday's Dally. ] A green looking pair ambled into i Norfolk millinery shop yesterday after noon and asked to see the bridal veils Then they blushed. The fairy creature who was to wear the netting looked at all of the samples , and the man who had evidently captured her looked ou of the window. Now and then the dove like queen picked up a bow of ribbon or a paper fiower and held it against the manly coat , to catch the effect. It was groa fun for the girls behind the counters to watch the little romantic effect aa i was carried on in real life. Hero was a happy couple , preparing for their wed ding day nnd feeling inexpressibly bash fal in the eyes of the world. Finally the lovely one spotted A par tioularly handsome veil.

[ from Tliurxilay'fl Dnlly. ] Muslo lovers of Norfolk wore given another treat by the Bridges Concert company nt the ME , ohuroh lust night , md it WIIH found ncconnnry to draw on the auxiliary seating cnpnclty of the church to accommodate all these attend * ng. This closes the Bocond musical convention of the Bridges in Norfolk nnd their popularity is in the ascend- onoy , so much so that should they undertake to start another class nt once hey would bo successful. The Bridges quartet nnd their chorus of 70 voice H , were assisted by Stephen Sdgar Brown of Iowa , and the pro gram was ono continual round of qunr- ots , trios , duets nnd solos of high uerit , interspersed with enjoyable read- ngH of Mrs. Bridges. Mr Brown Is an sditor , from Iowa , but in splto of that mndleap 1ms a voice of depth , power vnd quality nnd his solo work received generous approval.

MOTHER GAVE THEM LAST DRINK , Then Ordered Them To Ask For No More Water Today. [ From Thursday's Dally. ] On the Bonesteel passenger train that went through Norfolk this noon was a woman who seemed to scarcely realize the fact that men are born with appetites for drink. She was a tired little woman with two small boys. At the city sta tion , when the cars stopped , they asked for a drink. They evidently had been asking for drinks nil the way to Norfolk With a frown on her face the mother drew the water for her boys. They drank furiously. Then , as she jerked the tin cup away she gave them each a box on the ears nnd said , "There now Don't you ask for another drink today 1' They looked at each other and said nothing. "I'll wnger , " eaid a traveling man "that they ask again before we're hal wav to Pierce. " "And if they don't , " remarked an other , "it will be because , like some men , the are drinking on the sly. " PLANS A TRIP. , Mrs. Roosevelt is to Take a Sea Voy age on the Mayflower.

THE OLD RELIABLE POWDER Absolute/ ) Pure IS NO SUBSTITUTE Four Small But Expensive Volumes. COST $140 OR $35 EACH. 3ook Contains Government Field Notes , Locating the County Lines and Represents n Grant Amount of Work. [ From U'ednowluV'H Dally | County Surveyor W. H. Lowe IIUH in its possession four small volumes , each about eight by nine indies and porlmps v half inch thick , that recently cost the county $ MO or about $ , ' 15 apiece , and are vorth the cost. At this price libraries vould bo expensive luxuries , but those ire not modern novels , nor even first editions of ancient writings , nor ruro Millions whoso antiquity makes thorn valuable ; neither in it the binding and style , although they are substantial , mt thn woik represented that gives hem their worth. Thny are Htrictly n lomo product , bound by n Madison county book maker , edited by Madison county genius and the wording , in or- ginal manuscript , was by a Madison county penman. They might have jeou printed , but the cost would have ) oeu much larger and there would jo no demand for moro than the or igiual copies , so that extra volumes would Imvo boon a drug on the market. Weeks of steady writing and days of careful editing were required for the completion of the volumes and they will bo the inheritance of the county stir veyor's ofllco where euro according to iheir worth will bo bestowed on thorn. The books contain the government field notes of the survey of Madison county and are an essential part of the surveyor's equipment in locating county roads , establishing dividing lines bo between farms and outlining the lots ol the towns and cities. The original record of this work is in ono largo cumbersome volume , valuable only for office work or preserving the record and ban been deposited with the county clerk of Madleon county where it properly belongs , so that if anything should happen to the now books dupli cates could be made. The particular idea of the new books is that they maybe bo carried by the surveyor and be ol ready roferouco in doing field work. A water proof pouch will be made to pro toot the volumes from the elements and with two of them in his possession the surveyor will bo able to locate al necessary marks in a strip of territory 12 miles wide from ono end to the other of the county. Ono volume gives the exterior and sub-division of lines of the township of the county , with all necessary descrip tions and data. Greeks , trees , high and low places showing the government line are located , and by a readily compre hended system of indexing the fielc notes of nuy desired location may be easily found. Each of the other three books gives tin information necessary regarding the fieli notes of the ranges as comprehensively described , arranged and indexed as tha of townships. Some interesting history of the snr veyors are shown by the volumuc. Th east line of the county was surveyed in June , 1857 ; the north line in August 1858 , and the south line iu September o the same year. Thus the outlines o the county wore formed before th white man was known to the country except as a mere trauscleut visitor auc when the Indians , wolves and coyote wore in undisputed possession of a larg slice of Nature's fair estate that is now the homo of thousands of iudnstrion Americans who have taught the fertile soil to yield them fortunes. Th sub-division township and range line of the county and also the sub-division section lines were surveyed in the fal of 18GG. This was just preceding the arrival of the early settlers of the country and it is not improbable tha the attention of immigrants was firs attracted to Madison county by the men were then surveying the count ) and took note of its prolific untnro growths and recognized its possibilities for development into a wealthy com muuity. So far as the value of these books is concerned they will be of more benefi to the succeeding generations of sar veyors than they are at present. Mr Lowe came to the county with the early Bottlers and IB familiar with almoe every foot of land , His personal knowN edge of lines nnd marks is therefore al most an complete us that given in the boohs. Ho finds it necessary to refer to thorn occasionally and then they are in * dispensable , but to those who hold thn olllco in itftorytmrH ( ivory statement the bnolcH contain will bo necessary to the locution of llmm and the marking out of surveys.
