A soft track at Crolghton on the Bonostoel branch of the Northwestern was cause for sending a wrecking train up the line Tuesday afternoon , in anticipation of trouble which might happen if the soft spot was not re paired. The train left Norfolk at IrSO , ahead of the passenger , so that It might , tlx the rails before the regular train came along. Water is causing the damage. Gossip of Football. There are now only four contenders for championship honors in the west. Last Saturday's contests leaves Min neapolis , Chicago , Michigan and Northwestern still in the fluid. How ever , it does not seem likely that Northwestern will win out as she had a very narrow escape with Illinois. Wisconsin also claims a look In but is not regarded as being serious. The Chicago Tribune has the following .solution of the situation : "If Chicago beats Michigan nnd Wisconsin defeats Minnesota nnd Northwestern , Chicago will ho the only unbeaten team. If Michigan beats Wisconsin and Chicago nnd WIs conaln wins its two big games , Mich ignn will bo the only team with a clenr record. If Minnesota heats Wis consin. Michigan heats Chicago , and Wisconsin heats Michigan and North western , Minnesota will bo the lead er. If Northewstern beats Wisconsin , Wisconsin beats Minnesota and Mich igan , and Michigan beats Chicago , Northwestern can claim first honors. This last looks like a long shot , but those four nro the only possibilities for any team to show a score sheet unmarred by defeat. An unbroken scries of victories for Wisconsin , with u defeat for ( . 'hlrago on Thansglvlng day , would give Curtis' team a chance to claim llrHt rank. Other comhlnn- tloim of deefulH and victories would roimlt In various ties.

WOULD FREE NORFOLK AVENUE. By a Shifting of the Switching Yards by the Railroad Company the Train Crews Would be Greatly Aided In Work and the City Relieved. [ From Saturday's Dally. ] "Now that the old roundhouse has burned down and another must bo constructed. " snld n. business man to day In spcnklng of the flro at the Union Pacific yards , Thursday night , "why wouldn't It bo a most opportune moment for the railroad' company to so arrange their switching tracks that the crossing over Norfolk avenue may not need to bo blocked with cars and engines so constantly hereafter ? " For years and years the railroad crossing over Norfolk avenue has boon n plnco of much notion with the rail road cars nnd switch engines and it has often boon cause for comment that so few accidents have thus for happened. It is a dangerous place for persons coining nnd going cither walk ing or driving and the Incessant travel nlonir this avenue Is no doubt onuallv disturbing to the railroad crows who are trying to work. By a shifting of the roundhouse to some out of the way spot the tracks could also bo moved about and the trains could bo made up and kicked about Indiscriminately with neither danger to human llfo nor inconven ience to passers-by. The company will without doubt re place the hurned building with a mod ern brick structure. The ono which burned was old nnd dry and rather too small , anyway , to accommodate all of the engines which must of necessity headquarter under its roof. The lack of pressure upon the water j during the fire was caused by the fact that someone hnd entered the building before the fire got much headway , and had turned on the hydrant inside , letting it run during the flro and tak ing a great deal of force off the stream which came from the hose. The firemen stayed at the building for flvo hours , never quitting until 11:30 : o'clock. Lo Uoy Leach of Wood Lake , our county surveyor nnd candidate for re-election , gave an exhibition of his skill with tlio rifle Wednesday after noon In the presence of a largo crowd a little north of the Episcopal church snys the Valentino Republican. Mr. Loach holds the world's champion ship for rille shooting at Hying tar gets , having twice beaten the record made by Adolph Topervein of San Antonio , Texas , who hit SOfi out of n possible 1,000 Hying targets , throe Inches in size at a dlstanco of eight foot. foot.On On August 2 , 100 ! ! , at Wood Lake Mr. Leach broke OflO ono and three- fourths inch targets at a dlstanco often ton feet and on October M. 190 ; ! , ho made the unsurpassable record of 1,000 out of a possible 1,000 at a dis tance of twenty foot , accomplishing this wonderful feat In forty minutes. While in his shooting here he did not equal his former records owing to the unfavorable condition , there being a rathqr strong gusty wind dur ing the entire afternoon , yet ho did some excellent shooting , the most skillful that has ever boon witnessed bore. Had the wind been lighter ho doubtless would have equalled some of his previous records. As it was ho hit 95 out of 100 targets at the commencement of the shoot and af ter having hit all sorts of objects , in cluding pennies , small rubber balls , short shells , pins , souvenirs , pocket mirrors , match heads and lead pen cils ho concluded the exhibition by hlttiift 211 targets out of a possible 211 at distances ranging from ten to sixty feet. Ho also made several doubles on double targets and several doubles on single tnrgets nnd hit n small tin can four times while in the air. A bullet was driven through a rubber tube the si/.o of the bullet , hold In the hand of a boy. and ho exploded a 22 shell , striking it on end at twenty-five feet. The most re- mnrknblo font wns the hitting of three ordinary brass pins thrown In the nlr. Mr. Leach says he had never tried this before and has never heard of anyone else attempting such a shot. He uses a repeating rifle with solid ball nnd shoots off hand. Besides his reputation as the world's champion rifle shot Mr. Loach Is a clover writer and has a national reputation as the author of Orl/el , a classic poetical legend , of which there have been throe editions published. Ho has also written a novelette entitled Don Homoro , a Mexican romance.

Pass Through Norfolk On Their Way Home from Ft. Riley. ARE ENROUTE TO VALENTINE. Travel in Pullman Cars and Tourist Sleepers Again Express Their Ad miration for Norfolk and Norfolk People Met by Guardsmen. The Twenty-fifth regiment , United States regulars , were In Norfolk for several hours Monday on their way home from the Fort Hiloy encamp ment , and expected to bo In quarters at Fort Nlobrara , near Valentino some time "Monday night or early Tuesday morning. Tlio regiment came in on a special train , the officers having Pullman sleepers and the men tourist sleeping cars for their comfort and conven ience. They are traveling homo over the Northwestern. The special arrived in Norfolk Junction soon after 10 o'clock and left for Valentino after 1 o'clock , giv ing them several hours hero and of ficers and men were permitted to come up town , make purchases and renew some of the acquaintances they made on the trip down. They are the soldiers who marched to Norfolk from Valentine , nnd camped at the race track north of the city for a couple of days. A num ber of the national guard officers and men wont to the train to meet thorn and the regulars roltoraled their high estimation of Norfolk and Norfolk people and expressed regret that they could not remain here longer on their return trip.

That load of coal that was set on fire during the burning of the round house Is still burning and sending up smudges of smoke. To the person with an empty coal bin nnd a flat pocket book it looks like one of the most serious losses of the fire. Stanton Register : Yesterday after noon Judge Vlnlng united In marrlago Mr. J. V. Johnson of Norfolk and Miss Ada Ogden of the same placo. The groom is 2fi and n native of Illinois and tlio bride is 21 and a native of Iowa.
