An Interesting Communication.
The following Jettor from J. A.
Lyndo to the Hnrtlngton Herald is
Norfolk. Neb. , Jan. 2. Kdltor Nel
son , Hnrtlngton : I arrived homo last
Saturday night , which wan December
31 , 190 J , from one of my regular trips ,
contented in the knowledge tlmt I had
done a successful year's work , and
happy In the thought that I would ho
able to spend Now Year's day with

when I arrived homo nnd n few min
utes Inter I wns mndo doubly happy
when Mr. nnd Mrs. J. B. ElHoffor. Mr.
nnd Mrs. Will Barge and Mrs. A. B.

\Vo passed the tlmo very pleasant
ly until 12 o'clock playing progressive
Illnch , when , after the compliments
of the Now Year wo partook of some
hot coffee , sandwiches and calo ,
which my wlfo hnd prcpnred.
Whllo wo were busy with this re
past our telephone rang and upon
answering It the well known voice of
"Gum" Pollock was heard at the oth
er end exclaiming with a hearty "Hap
py Now Year , " nnd regretting that ho
could not have been with us. We too

YOUNG MEN AND YOUNG WOMEN
WELCOMED BY BUSINESS WORLD
Instruction In the Norfolk Business
College Makes Them Independent
on Good Salaries and Enlarges Their
To the young man or young woman
seeking a vocation In llfo there Is
nothing NO valuable ns the opinions
of men nnd women of experience and
particularly those who have made a
HIICCOSH In their chosen lines of work.
It Is with pleasure that The News
gives the following Indorsement of a
Hold of opportunity open to nil through
the Norfolk business college.
Prepare for Business Life.
"There are numbers of young people
within and around Norfolk who hnvo
punned through the public schools nnd
laid the foundations of a good educa
tion , " said Hov. J. .1. Parker. "They
are not planning to go to the state
university , nor to any collego. They
are thinking of an active business llfo
and desire to enter upon It as soon ns
they can. But they need special train
ing along certain lines nnd Norfolk al
ready possesses nn Institution exactly
suited to their needs. In Mr. and
Mrs. Brake It has olllclent Instructors
of excellent caractor and good stand
ing In the community nnd young men
nnd young women who desire to lenrn
ponnmnshtp , type-writing , stenogra
phy nnd book-keeping con secure It
at very moderate terms. "
Men of Capacity Needed.
Another opinion of welgnt comes
from Mr. R. A. Stewart of Omaha ,
who said : "With the changes Inci
dent to progress In commercial and
professional life , it has become almost
vital that a young man bo equipped
with a knowledge of stenography ,
typewriting nnd bookkeeping. With
out It , If ho Is n good employe , ho cnn
command from $35 to $50 per month ,
whorcns If ho hns these additional
qunllllcatlons , ho can obtain from $50
to $100 per month. If ho Is an export
ho has all the advantages of a profes
sion. As with Secretary Cortolyou. It
may mean his Introduction to the
highest position In the public service ;
or , ns In very many Instances , It may
Introduce him to high positions In the
railway service or In the conduct of
any of the largo Industrial nnd com
mercial undertakings of the country.
Men of capacity are much harder to
obtain now than capital. They are
the crying need of the hour. Put your
son In the way of helping and honor
ing himself and you. "
Make the Girls Independent.
Hon. A. J. Durland contributes the
following Ideas to the subject of busi
ness qualitlcntlon : "If your son ex
pects to enter professional life , ho
should have n thorough common
school and high school education. If
ho Is thoroughly grounded In these , a
collegiate education Is not Imperative.
Ho can add , himself , to what more he
needs as he goes along. But ho
should have n course beside in sten
ography , type-writing and bookkeep
ing. It will earn him $75 a month
whllo ho Is studying for his profes
sion nnd , afterwards , whllo he is
building himself up in It. Fortunate
ly wo have a school of this kind hero.
Fifty dollars nnd live months study
will secure him this great advantage.
Ho can earn It all bach In six months
work. Ho could not Hnd two more
competent and conscientious Instruct
ors than Mr. and Mrs. Brake. Be
cause the chance is nt your door , pa
rents , do not overlook It. Many girls
marry unfortunately because they are
through school , have no definite ob
ject in life and feel that they should
relieve their parents of their support.
This Is a sad fact. They know noth
ing of men , have no knowledge of llfo
and are easily deluded. Make your
daughters Independent. Give them a
chance to work as well as your sons.
Give them a chance at the experience
of llfo and n knowledge of human na
ture. Watch over them carefully ,
guard them tenderly , but do not keep
them out of the world. Have them
get n good common school education
and then send them to Mr. and Mrs.
Brake's business college. In five
months , at a nominal cost they will
bo self-supporting nnd more. They
will bo busy nnd happy. They will
have more self-respect. They will begetting
getting a knowledge of life and of
business. They will learn men and
they will not put their future In the
keeping of a worthless man. Should
they over need to rely upon them
selves entirely they will be able to
win the prize of honorable toll. The
parent's duty Is not done when his
daughter graduates , even from these
excellent Norfolk public schools. "
SUPREME CHANCELLOR COMING.
Members of the Tribe of Ben Hur Will
Have a Big Meeting.
North Nebraska court No. 9 , Tribe
of Ben Hur , held a public installation
of officers last night and before an in
terested gathering the officers chosen
for the ensuing term were properly
inducted In their several stations.
Members of the court and other
courts of northeast Nebraska are an
ticipating with a great deal of plea
sure a district meeting which is to beheld
held In Norfolk on tlio 30th. At that
tlmo Hon. D. W. Glrard of Crawforda-
vlllo , Ind. , supreme chancellor of the
order will bo hero. The bond officer
Is making a lour of western lodges

named when members of the order
from the novornl courts In this sec

SCRAPPERS SETTLE WITH COURT
Paul Bryant and Ben Beemer Pay up
for Auditorium Disturbance.
All the trouble growing out of the
flstfc encounter In the Auditorium
balcony during the performance of
"Tho Hcnrt of Chicago" several
night ago seems now to have been
Mottled HO far ns the police court Is
concerned. Paul Bryant on Saturday
was assessed a fine which with the
costs amounted to $7.10 , nnd yester
day Ben Boomer appeared before the
court , pleaded guilty to the charge
lodged ngnlnst him and pnld his lino.

HAD TO IMPRISON MRS , LILLIE
Supreme Judge Barnes , After Exam
ining the Evidence , Gave Opinion.
"After wo had considered the evi
dence In the case of Mrs. Llllio for
several months , " said Supreme Judge
J. U. Uarnes today , regarding the re
cent decision of the state supreme
court against a rehearing for the wo
man from David City who Is now in
the penitentiary for llfo , on charge of
murdering her husband , Harvey Lll-
He , "we wore unable , In any detail , to
see how a verdict other than the one
of guilty could have been found.
"From all of the evidence nnd tes
timony Introduced , It was clearly ap
parent that no one else could have
killed Llllio. From her own state
ment of the cnso nnd of the situation
nt the time of his death , It was clear
that the burglar theory was entirely
out of the question. It was attempt
ed on the part of the defense , just nt
the last moment , to show that the find
ing of the revolver with which the
shooting was done , in an old well ,
was evidence that a burglar had
thrown It away while he was escap
ing the house. But it is ridiculous to
suppose that a burglar , running away
from a house that ho rubbed nnd a
man whom he had killed , would drop
his gun Into n well. Any burglar un
der the circumstances would have
kept the gun for self defense.
"The trial of Mrs. Lilllo was as fair
as any trial that I have ever come in
contact with. Judge Good , who was
on the bench , gave her an eminently
fa'lr hearing throughout , even striking
out evidence to which the defense , it
self , had not objected. Judge Good
started the trial on the theory that
Mrs. Llllle was Innocent. This was
his own opinion. But after he had
listened to the evidence offered for
twenty-one davs , he was so utterly
changed in his opinion that nothing
on earth could have made him believe
then that the woman was innocent"

There is no medicine manufactured
that has received more voluntary

that It not only gives quick relief hut

COMMERCIAL CLUB APPROVES OF
THE COMMITTEE'S PLAN.
WOULD OFFER LIBERAL BONUS
Committee Considered That the Busi
ness Men Would be Willing to Sub
scribe $1,000 a Year for a Period of
Three Years as Inducement.
It was the sentiment of the com
mercial club at the meeting hold in
the city hall last night that the club
and the business men generally wore
willing to give any reasonable en
couragement to a flrm or corporation
that would undertake to construct and
operate a street railway between the
city proper and South Norfolk and It
Is probable that the extent of such
encouragement will bo shown within
a few days.
The Bub-committee of the executive
committed to whom was given the
task of Investigating the proposition
and preparing a plnn reported a de
cision which they were Instructed by
the club to carry out.
The committee believed that the
business men of the city would be willIng -
Ing to subscribe to a bonus of about
$1,000 a year for a period of three
years and considered that It would
bo possible with this as an Induce
ment to Interest capitalists In the
proposition of building the line. This
amount of bonus would bo no greater
than has been frequently raised for
entertainments giving but a day era
a few days of benefit to the business
world whllo the returns from the
street railway would bo constant and
permanent to the business people of
Norfolk and a convenience to the
people of the city as well as the trav
It was Indicated at the meeting that
the cost of building and operating the
line had been quite carefully estimat
ed and It was expressed as an opin
ion that It could be made to pay the
owners but with a $1,000 bonus each
year for three years the men who
were willing to make the Investment
would bo certain of returns that would
even up matters If not produce a de
sirable profit. The plan was consid
ered feasable from the various stand
points and the committee was in
structed to proceed with the proposi
tion and see what the business men
were willing to subscribe.
As an enterprise of benefit to Nor
folk the Norfolk Business college was
presented and the following resolu
tion was presented and adopted :
"Whereas , Prof , and Mrs. C. II.
Brake are conducting a Business college -
lego of Importance to the business In
terests of Norfolk and to the young
men and young women of the city and
northern Nebraska ,
"Resolved , That Mr. and Mrs. Brake
have the hearty good will of the Com
mercial club in their work nnd that
this club stands ready at all times to
lend them such encouragement as will
assist them to bring the school to ft
"Resolved that the merits of this
school should bo presented to the people -
plo of Norfolk nnd north Nebraska
nnd that It Is considered to the ad
vantage of the business men of Nor
folk to lend what aid they may to
ward bringing the school to the at
tention of the public. "
It was stated that the business col
lege contemplated the Issuing of a
catalogue and the club considered It
probable tlmt the business men of the
city would bo willing to aid by taking :
