"They talk a good deal about \yo-

I've been wondering how it happened.
Brother just Ituighs when I ask him
about it.
"And one fellow who has a family
to Hiipxrt | but doesn't , stood nround
on the sidewalk and talked about the
combination that bis party had
formed to do thus and so , and called
the other party bad names. Two
brothers , who vote differently , got so
angry that they walk on the other
side of the street today because they
couldn't agree about the ticket.
"I don't see what they get out of
It. Of course they're saving the conn-
try. Some men are always out after
n political job , just trying to get
called thieves. Some men will start
in with the olllco of dog catcher and
run for everything in sight ri lit
straight up the ladder. It's like going
for a gold mine one makes good
whore 1H > 9 are lost in oblivion.
"I presume politics , a game that
will keep men working and scheming
and designing for months and months
of sleepless nights in order to get an
olllce that doesn't pay any salary , is
Interesting and worth the' powder.
For myself , 1 rather read the Ladles

J. W. Bovee Says He Was Not Cor
rectly Quoted Concerning the
Talk He Made on the Street.
Norfolk , April 0. To The Norfolk
News : As published in The Weekly
News this week I am quoted ns say
ing things that I did not say and do
ing things which I did not do. What
I did say and do on the streets of
Norfolk I stand ready to meet same
at nny time. What I would bo glad
to do would bo to get my case with
D. C. O'Connor before the patrons of
the school district and let them de
cide the question nt issue.
To enter into a review of the case
In The News would bo laborious to
all parties concerned and expensive
to the paper and not desirable on my
part. However , should a number of
the patrons of the school district sig
nify a request to mo to review the
case at a given time and place , I
stand ready to comply with their re
quest. At the same tlmo D. C. O'Con
nor or one of his friends would boat
liberty to reply to same.
Truly yours ,

And Having Become Quite Exhausted
During the Long Illness of Her
Niece , the Deadly Disease Fastened
Upon Her and Took Her Life.
fFrom Saturday's Dally. ]
Miss Iconise Keys , sister of Mrs.
George H. Spear and well known in
Norfolk , died at Clarks , Neb. , this
morning after n several months' ill
ness of tuberculosis.
Such is the substance of a message
received by Miss Mason , of this city ,
from Mrs. Spear , who was at the bed
side of her sister.
The news of Miss Keys' death will
not come wholly unexpected by her
many friends in Norfolk ns for a num
ber of months she has been growing
weaker and the end was but inev
Peculiarly Sad.
A pcculnf sadness surrounds the
Illness and" death of this young wo
man. She was a professional nurse
and her untiring effort to save the
life of her nleco , Miss Grace Spear ,
about a year ago , and the ceaseless
care which she gave at that time ,
keeping the frail young girl nllvo for
weeks and weeks , was the beginning
of her own illness.
She was nt ono time a teacher In
the Norfolk schools , and will be remembered -
momborod kindly by her former pu
pils. After the death of Grace Spear
it was a very short time until the fa
tal disease had fastened upon the ex
hausted nurse nnd she wont south for
a trip in the hope of beneflttlng her
condition. Climatic change , however ,
failed to Improve her health and she
returned to Clarks , Neb. , with but
one outcome possible.
Mrs Spear has boon at the homo
for n number of weeks , in turn carlHg
tenderly for the alntor who had given
her own llfo In trying to save her
nlccp. And within the year both have
panrod away.
