University Wishes to Know if
Norfolk Wants One.
. Those Who Have Had Charge of Pre
vious Meetings Will Await Wishes
of Those Who Should be Interested.
Expenses Met by the University.
[ Kroni Tupfilny'B .
L. M. Gaylord , sccrolary of the
Fanners Institutes for a iniinbor of
years past , Is in receipt of u commu
nication from Superintendent 10. A.
Burnolt of Lincoln asking for Informa
tion from Norfolk regarding the hold
ing of an Institute hero again during
this season. Prof. Burnett pledges
i the university to do Its share toward
another Institute If the agricultural
'people In the vicinity of Norfolk will
iindertake to see that the Interest and
attendance Is what It should ho.
This is u matter deserving the
thoughtful consideration of those to
whom most of the benefit accrues
from these meetings. Those who
have had anything to do with Farm
ers institutes in Norfolk In the past
will realize that the men who have at
tempted to conduct these meetings
in the past have had little encourage
ment from those who should he most
interested. They have provided pro
grams of exceeding high merit and
great value only to have a vary slim
attendance from those whom It was
intended to benefit and Interest.
The expenses of these Institutes
come out of the university funds , which
have been contributed by the taxpayers
ers for the support of that school and
it Is a sort of return that the farming
people should bo glad to avail them
selves of. It costs them nothing di
rectly for the speakers and Instruct
ors except to furnish a room , have
, "programs printed , advertise the meet-
J' . ing among the farmers and glvo the
speakers local entertainment.
.Tho speakers are men who have
made successes In various lines of
farm work and who are willing to glvo
of their knowledge to aid those who
undertake such special lines of work
> iu greater or less detail. It Is an op
portunity that should appeal to ev
ery progressive farmer , and those
who have taken an Interest in the In
stitutes of the past may bo depended
upon to Interest themselves In the fu
ture , but this Is not enough. These
vyho have never taken an interest or
attended should do 'so , or a successful
meeting will be Impossible.
A. L. Carter , who has been presi
dent of the institute , and L. M. Gaylord -
lord , who has been secretary , have
practically decided that they will not
arrange for another institute until the
farmers assure them that they are
ready to assume a share of the work
and responsibility of making the meet
ing a success. They will wait to hear
ifrom those who should bo Interested
'in ' such a meeting and if there Is no
evidence that an institute is desired
no arrangements will be made for one
this winter. It Is up to the farmers
to say whether or not an Institute Is
worthy of their attendance and inter
est. The matter should not be de
layed. The university people are al
ready planning their work and mak
ing dates , and if Norfolk is to liave
s. meeting the agricultural people
should speak out at once.
Cooked With Sweet Potatoes and
Richly Flavored , a Dozen Rel
ished the Rare Game.
TFrom Tuesday's Dnllv-l
Cooked into a rich , delicious spread
-with mammoth sweet potatoes , Bos
ton baked beans and other things to
match , the 'possum which was killed
on Spring Branch Saturday and which
was presented by the hunter , Fred
Jenkins , to Col. Al Johnson , was last
evening eaten and relished by a dozen
special guests In a rear room at the
Klco liquor store.
Col. Al had prepared the game with
that rare degree of excellent flavor
In which the colored folk of the south
land , whore the 'possum runs right by
the door and the sweet potato vines
are laden with their earthly apples ,
are alone capable. Ho had been as-
sisted by his wife In their home down
on Braasch avenue and they had made
the feast a tempting ono. The 'pos-
Bum was tender and juicy and very
rich. Somewhat like the pralrlo
chicken In its color of meat , rather
more tender than the best cooked tame
fowl that was over fried and bathed
iu a liquor which savors of the choic
est spare ribs but which Is to bo com-
pared'with no common sort for all of
that , the 'possum may bo said to taste
just like a 'possum and nothing else ,
exactly , In all the world.

Now and then there are among
men , after nil , a few of the typo who
are naturally humane without belong

animals , and who , out of the kindness
of their own hearts , will take an extra
step and an extra hour to bring relief
to some helpless creature which Is
suffering hut which has no precise
way of calling aid from the charitably
inclined passers-by.
An Incident of the kind happened
yesterday In Norfolk when a tiny cat
which had In some unthinking way
climbed a high telephone polo down
town and which , having reached her
heavenly perch , was unable with any
feeling of safety to climb down again.
The air grew cold and raw and wind
became cutting. The snow blow
through the street In bitter blasts
from the northward but still stuck the
kitty to the top bar of the polo. People
ple went and people came that way
but not one noticed the helpless little
kitten save to glance curiously at It
for an Instant and then pass on.
Along about noon a stranger called
at the manager's ofllco of the Ne
braska telephone exchange. "Aro
there any climbers hero ? " ho asked.
There were. Kenneth Norton was Just
spurred and strapped up for that sort
of work , ready to go out upon the

plained the stranger , "if you will climb
the polo that stands In front of the
Queen City hotel and get down the
cat that Is on top of the cross bar. "
"Done , " said the climber , and In
loss than no time at all poor pussy
was running around on the streets
trying to get warm. The stranger
made good his promise and went his

Nights Upon Which Theater

Frequently There are Social Attrac
tions Set In Advance When Plays
are Announced , Which Is Always
Unfortunate for Players.

parties and other attractions through

set for several days when suddenly
an announcement of a good Miow
would bo made by the management
of the Auditorium and the result
would bo that seats would , bo but
Hpuri'igly ' taken while a largo number
of society folk who would otherwise
have attended the play , would of
course accept their Invitations out.
This has not been the fault of Nor
folk nconlo so much as It has been
the management of the playhouse because -
cause Invitations and plans tire al
ways made a number of days In ad
vance while the theatre announce
ments have been made but two or
throe days , often , ahead of the book-
It Is hoped , now that the dales are
sot for several months in advance as
to Auditorium attractions , and since
but a few features arc announced for
each month , that conflicts may bo
more easily avoided and an advantage
gained from every viewpoint.

grander and rarer sight of all In the
church rising to their feet In an In
stant and proclaiming In the Hlght of

year they would approach Holy com-
minion and HO put the seal upon their
salvation. Never was anything like

Louis. At the close of the service
Sunday the people of the parish and
many of the children crowded about
Father Shyno to dhld him goodbye.
The scene was a touching ono and
Father Shyno to bid him goodbye ,
though they may never again meet
