THE PARALYTICJT THE POOL Evangelist Lyon Emphasizes Power of Choice In Religious Life. The third week of the evangelistic mooting was begun with a largo au- Howe and close attention to every thing the Hponkor said. Mr. Coltos and his largo chorus choir awakened the people to a high pitch of enthu siasm before the sermon began. Mr , Lyon took for his text the words : Will thou bo made whole ? " and his remarks were hiiHod upon the Incident In the life of Jesus whore ho healed the IniiKitont man who had boon . ' 18 years by the pool of Hothesda. Phys ical healing In the now testament IH always emblematic of n spiritual cure. Paralysis Is the disease which best represents the man away from Christ. As Jesus could heal the paralytic at the pool so will He heal the spiritually Impotent who are by the pools. Many are by the social pool waiting for some 0110 to help them in. Others by the financial , political and plea sure pools. But Jesus Is ready to help all who will , Into the pool of the water of life. Wilt thou bo mndo whole ? The emphasis Is to bo placed on the will. If you will , to ho a Chris tian all the demons In hell cannot prevent. The man who says ho wants to ho a Christian but cannot become one Is making God n liar. This para lytic confessed his Inability to help himself. For thirty-eight years ho had boon holploss. Only Jesus could help him. So no man can save himself. It Is not a quosllon of how much power God has. Jesus Inspired Iho paralytic with a ray of hope. Gel hope In your heart No matter how evil your past has boon. God through Jesus can save you. Whenever Jesus gives a command with the command ho gives strength to obey. The evan gelist closed with an appeal to men to commit themselves to the Lord. To burn the bridges behind Ihom. Several adulls crowded the front seats and expressed a dcslro to lead a Christian life. James Connolly Taken for Kill ing : * t Alliance. HE IS A WEALTHY RANCHMAN After Having Threatened to Kill H. H. Miller , He Was Found Dead Near Connolly's Ranch and the Af fair Looks Bad for Him. Scotts Bluff , Nob. , March 22. Sheriff Campbell haa arroatcd .Tamos Connolly for the murder of H. H. Miller , which occurred at the Connolly nelly ranch , about twenty mllea north of hero , on Tuesday. Connolly had sent word to the sheriff of Sioux county that if ho was wanted ho could o bo found at his homo at this placo. About 2 o'clock Sheriff Campbell re ceived a message from Sioux county to place Connolly under arrest. Ac companied by his deputy and Con stable Surnsoy , ho went to the Connolly nelly homo and arrested him and took him to Goring. Much Interest is shown In this mur der , aa both parties were old ranch ers In this part of the state and were wealthy. Details of the shooting , which resulted in the death of Miller , cannot bo secured , but all evidence points very strongly to Connolly , who had threatened to kill Miller If ho came on his ranch. On the morning of the murder Connolly and Miller had had trouble in Alliance and Mil ler's friends warned him not to go to the ranch. Ho said ho would go If ho left his bones to bleach on the prairie. At the Inqueat II was shown thai ho was nol armed ; did nol even have a pockotknlfo. This and the fact that ho was shot from ambush throws public sentiment with the Mil ler faction , THE BUSY SEASON IS OPENING With Two Government Buildings , New Bank , Etc. , Prospects Good. E With two government buildings nnd a couple of hundred homes starting to bo built in Norfolk , the working men of the city are getting busy in earnest. The federal court house nnd postolllco building will bo ready for occupancy , Superintendent "Williams thinks , by May or Juno nnd the Capital - II ital City Brick company of DCS Molnes is starting in for real work at the Nebraska state hospital for the Insane. This la to bo finished by fall. Other improvements about the city have been starting rapidly this week. The hotels are remodelled , the Ox- \f \ nard just now undergoing a coating 7 of paint around the exterior wood work. With a new bank coming In t within a few weeks and other pros * o poctlvo institutions , It looks like a busy year for the people of Norfolk. Burned Hole Through Roof of Hayes-McClary Home. CHIEF HAS NARROW ESCAPE Railing Gave Away and He Slid to the Edge of the Roof Where the E.-we Trough Caught Him Damage to the House U Not Extensive. 'Fiom Momliiy'H Dully. ] Fire hurned a hole through thereof roof of the Hayi's-McClary homo on West Norfolk avenue Saturday after noon , hul the prom pi notion of Iho llremon provotited any largo loss , It wan one of the most peculiar and mysterious llres In the history of Norfolk. How It orlglnaled cannel ho surmised. II started , apparently , directly on the shingles about a do/- ( Mi feet from the chimney and when discovered was sending forth quite a Hiuudgo of smoku but had not burst Into llame. The alarm was turned In about four o'clock and every lire company In the city with the excep tion of the .Junction company , re sponded to the call and plenty of water was available to suppress the blaze. Quito n hole was burned through tho' roof , but llttlo damage was done Inside , oxcepl for illllng the upper rooms with Binoko to some ex tent , and from the water that went through. The furniture and house hold goods were removed from the rooms most threatened nnd this was the' worst feature of the blaze. A big crowd accompanied the members of the department , some assisting and ethers getting In the way of the llremen. Chief W. L. Kern and W. D. Vail narrowly escaped a serious accident while getting at the source of the ( Ire. Lloth were clinging to the Iron railing that surrounds the deck on the roof when the railing gave way. The cave trough at the edge of thereof roof was all that prevented the chief from a heavy fall backward , to the ground , while Mr. Vall's fall was stopped before ho had reached the edge of the roof.

Ilex Is In Norfolk from Sioux City meeting with old friends and ac quaintances nnd talking life Insur ance to those who would listen. It Is getting late enough In all rco- son for the commencement of spring , and If the weather of the last day or two Is encouragement that It may at last have arrived. Superintendent I ) . C. O'Connor presided - sided as toastnmster at a banquet given In the Mlllard hotel at Omaha last night as a farewell on the part of the Nebraska Schoolmasters' club to Superintendent Pcarso of the Omaha schools , who leaves the state. If this Is the worst that the vernal equinox can do there is no reason why the people should not bo reason ably cheerful. This can hardly ho accounted a storm at all , but the clerk may have something worse to follow. It Is quite fortunate thai farmers and gardeners are In need of fertiliz ers , as through this means the barn yards of the city got cleaned out quite regularly each spring to the mutual advantage of the barnyards and the land on which the fertilizer Is placed. Isaac C. Barnes of Willow Crook Antelope county , la visiting dls daugh ter , Mrs. William Smith , northwest of the city. Twenty-two years ago Mr Barnes sold to County Commissioner Geo. D.

Brady has been going It pretty strong along the booze line rccentlj and unless ho reforms he moy expec one of those spells to one day wlm up his career. It would seem Uial a lesson of two of this kind would b all that Is necessary to bring abou his reformation and If ho desires a long life ho will certainly bo inllu enced to cut out the drink. Of the Sixty Who Went , Thre Remained. OTHER FIFTY-SEVEN RETURNED They Were Offered Seventy Cent Per 1,000 Bricks for Wheeling Cleaning and Piling Up The Thought That Was Too Slow. [ From Tuesday's Dally. ] There was something of a dlmli utlvo strike In Norfolk yesterday. O the sixty workmen who went out t the hospital grounds to start on th bricks , ahoul three remained and th ether fifty-seven came marching bacl They went out early In the mornlnj , dinner pails in hand , to begin the la bor of cleaning up the bricks whlc were left , preparing them for th new buildings. Some of them rod out in carry-alls and those wh couldn't find room to rldo walked th three miles. The price offered by the compan for the work of cleaning the brick waa aeventy-flve cents per 1,000. Thl Is said to have Included the wheeling cleaning and piling up.

[ From Wednesday's Dally. ] A man , his wife nnd his mother-In law were In Norfolk from Butte from (1 ( o'clock yesterday morning until noon. They loft homo very early the same morning , arrived here on the morning train , spent seven hours 'M shopping , ate dinner and were com fortably seated at their own supper table in Butte before the sun went down. This trio of visitors explained in a Norfolk retail store , where they pur chased a largo bill of goods and paid cash , that they stopped at Norfolk Because they had read thai Ihoy could get just as good a selection here as In Omaha , and because they didn't like to spend $30 and another day extra on an Omaha trip when they could just as well do Ihelr buy ing In Norfolk. They went away well pleased will the trip. They told the retailer o whom they purchased , that they were satisfied they had saved money on every article over Omaha prices and that they were glad to be able to get a first class selection of me tropolitan lines so much closer to homo than they had been used to doing it before. "We have always gone to Omaha before to do lhat class of buying which we could not do in the smaller towns. It was always a throe days trip. We have been learning to know a little more of Norfolk since The News has branched out. We decided finally , to atop hero and take a chance. There are three of ua am wo hardly felt thai wo could affon to make the trip to Omaha. It la 120 mllea farther each way amount ing to $7.20 for each one ; or1 $211.60 for the additional car fare alone Then wo would have been oul a least $4 more for hotel bill , to say nothing of the twenty-four hours for three people and the wear and tear of riding for thai dlslance wtlhoul a rest. Kindly Toward Norfolk. "We people of Butlo and of Boyd county in fact the people of this new northwest , aa you have heard it called feel kindly toward Norfolk Wo like to come here because it is handy. Several times I have seen little things advertised , sent down to Norfolk by letter in the morning and got the articles back on the after noon train. "This la a great point for all of us In that neighborhood. The ne\v northwest is just like n big community with n common Interesl in Us up building sorl of a big family , you know , in which it Is the intoresl ol every town and every Individual to push with all Its might for develop ment. Wo appreciate the fact thai Norfolk haa a mulual Inleresl with us. Norfolk wants to help our coun try fill up , and la trying to help us do It. What does Omaha or Sioux City care about ua ? And for thai rea son we arc glad to give Norfolk a chance , whenever we can , al Iho Irado which wo are bound to send outside , And Li-tildes thai , it IB money In our pockets to do It. " The merchant who had boon visit ed by those people from Butte , was not a lltllo surprised. Ho had not especially appreciated the fact of the matter which The News has boon try- ng to point out during the year. Ho md looked at Iho Idea oul of Iho orner4.bf his eye until yesterday. nit now ho sees U differently. "The whole city ought to npprecl- to" thai country , " ho said , "for 11 IB a great territory. I should like to 'o up and got acquainted with the > eoplo of the now northwest. I bo- love it would bo a good proposition rom a mere business standpoint for ho merchants of Norfolk. " Several Ideas have boon suggested or the merchants of Norfolk , Ones s th&l Ihoy might unite on a special ay when they would refund railroad arc to any visitor who purchased a certain amount of goods. The mer chants could bo assessed for the faro according to the size of each one's sales to each visitor. S There will no doubt bo trade from Ihls now northwest If the merchants of Norfolk say never a word. It has boon Increasing In a remarkable way during the past four months. The hotel registers show several hundred per cent greater lists of visitors in the city from this northern Nebraska today than they did n year ago loday. The streets are crowded with strang ers from early morning at G until late In the evening when the last trains go out. This trade will In crease because It Is money In the pocket of north Nebraska to como hero instead of going through. But If the people of Norfolk would gel to gether nnd adopt some form of In ducement by which Ihls clly as a re tail market could bo more quickly developed , the resulls would without a doubt bo forthcoming. Several Ideas and good ones have been suggested. All of thorn , without exception , have boon tossed aside as unworthy the serious deliberation of the business men who would bo bonefltled.
