PEOPLE OF DOONEQnEELEY AND
WHEELER COUNTIES ANGRY.
A WELL KNOWN CATTLE THIEF
Finally Convicted , After Many Dattles
In the Courts , Lnmb Was Put De-
hind the Darn Now He Has Deen
Released on a Pardon.
Albion , Nob. , .Inn. 111. Special to
The NOWH : When the IIOWH readied
lioro that Mike Liunb , tlio fainoiifl cattle -
tlo niHtlor , had boon pardoned out of
tlio state penitentiary , oxcltomont pro-
vallod and a grout fooling against the
governor's action In tlilH matter was
demonstrated In thin community.
Men besieged the court house to learn
tlio particulars of the matter from
County Attorney Sponr who hail re
ceived telephone Information from
Attorney Doyle of Lincoln In regard
Tlio name of Mike Lamb , to tlio people -
plo of tills locality , resounds with
deeds of high handed cattle stealing.
Ho was the recognized lender of a
band of cattle rustlers who operated
In this part of the stnto for years
past. Doono , Wheeler and Orooloy
counties and the adjoining territory
was the locality worked by thorn and
their headquarters scorned to bo In
the vicinity of the Lamb farm which
Is situated about twenty miles west
of hero. During the tlmo that this
gang has boon stealing cattle two men
have mot their deaths and pitched bat
tles have boon fought between the out
laws and the authorities.
Suits have been brought against this
man Lamb In both Oreoloy and Uoono
counties and at the tlmo that ho was
convicted In Qreoloy for stealing cat
tle a suit was pending In the district
court here against him. It was agreed
at the tlmo that they try the case In
Oreoloy county no thnt the expense
of bringing the witnesses to Albion
might bo saved as nearly all of them
lived In Greeley.
It was a relief to tlio people In Hhls
part of Nobrnskn when It wns found
that the famous Mlko Lnmb was , at
last , safe behind the prison burs for
ho had fought CHSO after case In the
courts to good ofiVet and had also
served one term of two yours In the
penitentiary. So It Is not without
cause thnt the law abiding cltl/ons
are up In arms berauso of this pur-
Seovral of the loading mou of the
town have boon hoard to assort thnt
they would furnish funds for the pur
pose of renrrestlng and convicting this
criminal on some of the other numer
ous charges thnt arc hold against him.
Some rumor of a "necK tlo partv" Is
also current In the event that this cattle -
tlo stealing business Is resumed. A
general disgust Is expressed at the
action taken by the governor In this
pardon and Irrespective of political
Ideas nil are condemning this act.
Thnt the people In the vicinity of
Codnr Itnplds and Oreoloy are also
very Indlgnnut Is undoubtedly true
' and If they had boon consulted on this
proposition It Is very doubtful wheth
er or not one person could have boon
found In either place thnt would have
senctionod this unreasonable action.

If spooks and hobgoblins and disas
ter and hard luck do not stalk unmo
lested through the world today It
will not be because there Is not n
combination of Friday and the thir
teenth of the month that should ac
complish the end. If there Is supersti
tion at nil regarding the unlucky day
of the week and the unlucky day of
the month that Is what the world is
against today. There are however ,
those who claim that the combination
Is fortunate for them and such will
probably undertake to swing in a for
tune today. The first piece of bad
luck drawn by the people was the low
temperature , the mercury Indicating
a very low and frigid temperature.
No Poison In Chamberlain's Cough
From Napier , Now Zealand , Herald :
Two years ago the pharmacy bonrd of
New South Wales. Australia , had nn
analysis mndo of nil the cough medi
cines thnt were sold In thnt market.
Out of the entire list they found only
one that they declared was entirely
free from nil poisons. This exception
wns Chamberlain's Cough Remedy ,
mndo by the Chamberlain Medicine
company , Dos Molnes , lown , U. S. A.
The absence of nil narcotics makes
this remedy the safest and host thnt
can bo had ; and It Is with a fooling of
security that any mother can give It
to her little ones. Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy is especially recom
mended by Its makers for coughs ,
colds , croup and whooping cough.
When taken In time It prevents pneu
monia. This remedy Is for snlo by

COLDEST WEATHER WITHIN PAST
THREE YEARS HERE.
CRISP , COLD , UTTERLY CALM
HIGHEST SHOWN YESTERDAY BY
MERCURY WAS ZERO.
HIGHEST BAROMETER KNOWN
Today Brought the Record for the
Past Three Years In the Cold
Weather Line , and It Brought the
Highest Pressure Ever Known Here
[ From Friday's Dally. ]
Twenty-six degrees below zero was
the minimum temperature as record
ed by the United States government
thermometer in this city up until 8
o'clock this morning and today Is the
most Bovorcly frigid that has been
known In Norfolk or the northwest
within a period of three years. The
only day during the three years which
was as cold as It is today , was Jan
uary 27 , 1901 , when the mercury sank
down to twenty-nine degrees below
The warmest weather thnt was re
corded all day yesterday , was an oven
zero mark. The mercury did not rlso
In its iny tube above that mark all
day long , and was only as high as zero
for a brief space of the afternoon , be
tween 2 o'clock and 4. Having been
enabled by the radiant heat of the
golden sun to crawl up to the zero
spot , the llttlo long cylinder of quick
silver got scared , slunk away , drooped
Its head and darted back to Its for
Highest Barometer Ever.
Another remarkable fact in connec
tion with today's abnormal weather
Is the extremely high barometeV. So
heavy was the atmosphere tljiit Its
weight sent the mercurial guage high
up into the tube 30.50 Inches high.
Never before within the memory of
Dr. P. II. Snltor , who hns chnrgo of
the gunge In Norfolk , hns the barom
eter boon so high. It is probably the
highest barometer in the United States
today , ns heavier air than this Is a
very rnro thing on this planet.
A high barometer indicates thnt the
nlr is heavy. It Is so cold nntl so com
pactly pressed together thnt all of the
moisture Is squeezed out. It Is crisp ,
clean , pure nlr and Is packed together
because It Is cold.
People llttlo realized how severely
chilly It wns until they consulted the
thonnomotrlo mercury , for with ab
solute calm the frigidity wns not
blown Into humanity In the same dis
tressing fashion that accompanies a
windy day of cold.
The sky has boon perfectly cloudless -
loss , and the smoke from dozens of
big chimneys and smokestacks curled
around aimlessly , not knowing Into
which direction it ought to go , and
having no place to go but up. Part
of the smoke wandered south and
part of it east this morning , indicat
ing the perfectly windless weather
thnt it is.
