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.

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.
RHEUMATISM CURED AT LAST
Good News to All who Suffer With
Rheumatism Free ,
To all who suffer with rheumatism I
will gladly send free the wonderful
story of how my mother was cured
after years of suffering , together with
the most elaborate treatise on rheuma
tism ever published.
No matter what your form of rheu
matism is , whether acute , chronic ,
muscular , inflammatory , doformant ,
sciatic , neuralgia , gout , lumbago , etc
no matter how many so-called "sure
cares" you have tried I want you to
write to me and let mo tell you how
mother was cured.
I am neither a doctor nor a profeosor
simply a plain man of business but
I have n cure for rheumatism , and
want to tell everyone who buffers with
rheumatism all about it. I wish to be
clearly understood , and trust that all
who are Buffering with this terrible
disease , however , apparently beyond
the reach of cure , will write to me this
day and I will send you by return mail
this work of mine. I appeal especially
to the "chronically ill" who are wearied
and discouraged with "doctoring" and
to those who have been cast aside as
"incurable. " All you have thought
about rheumatism may bo wrong. Lot
me tell yon our experience. Surely , if
you have n Buffering friend , it will pay
yon to investigate my offer , anyway ,
and prove for yourself these claims
make.
Send me your address today a postal
card will do and I will mail you this
wonderful story. If yon have any
friends suffering with rheumatism no
matter where located , send me their
address , and I will mail them a copy.

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. "This , " she

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. "

Four Small But Expensive
Volumes.

Notes , Locating the County Lines
and Represents n Grant Amount of

[ 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
