IHE NORFOLK WEEKLY NEWSJOURNAL , , , , , NOUKOIA' NIWHASKA 1'MUDAY ' NOVKM1WH 1H U)0J ) ! University Wishes to Know if Norfolk Wants One. DO THE FARMERS WANT Y\t \ . 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. JHELPED HIM EAT THAT 'POSSUM ' , 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.

Thin Is a llrst class show and ladles should see It to teach their boys to bo strong and physically well built. HE WAS KIND TO A PUSSY CAT , Stranger Gave Lineman Half a Dollar to Bring Poor Kitten Down From the Pole. ( Ki'om Tucsdny'B Dully. ] Now and then there are among men , after nil , a few of the typo who are naturally humane without belong ing to the society that protects dumb 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 wires. "I will give you a half dollar , " ex 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 way. HIGH CCKOOL NOTES.

Nights Upon Which Theater Will Have Attractions. GIVEN TO PREVENT CONFLICTS.

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- Ing. Ing.It 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.
