CONGRESSMAN KINKAID TELLS
100 PERCENT IMPROVEMENT
Drome Grass , Which Mats the Sand
Together and Grows Tall Enough
For Hay , Will Wonderfully Improve
the Sandy Lands of the State.
( From Tliur liiv'H IJnllv 1
Congressman M. P. Klnkald of
O'Neill , who represents the big Sixth
district In Washington , was In Nor
folk today on his way from Anokn to
Holt county. Ho had been north on
the nonestcol line for the purpose of
Inspecting the grasses which the gov
ernment has been starting In the
Sixth district by way of experiment
" \Vo nro very much Interested all
north of the Platte river in grasses , "
said the congressman. "The grass Is
n vital thing In our stock country. 1
advocate that all llesh Is really grass ,
for the cattle are made of grass nnd
wo eat meat. It Is therefore n vital
thing. Wo have been looking for n
grass which will grow on the sandy
lauds and make hay. Wo want It to
grow long , and our experiments thus
far have been moro than satisfactory.
Brome Grass Great Stuff.
"Tho nlfalfn has done very well. "
continued the congressman , "but
brome grass has done much better
and this alone Is going to make our
country 100 percent better than It
ever was before. The brome grass
mats the send together and grows
long , so that it develops into good
hay. Wo are moro than delighted
with it. "
Judge KlnlMld says , too , that
Is a good denl of nctlvlty In the Sixth

F. F. Ware.
The following clipping from the
David City Banner concerns F. F.
Vnre. ono of Norfolk's new citizens :
F. F. Ware came In last Wednesday
veiling from Norfolk , and packed up
ils household goods for shipment to
hnt plnce , where he hns recently lo-
ated and engaged In the drug busl-
css. He hns also purchased a fine
esldencc property there. Mr. Ware
eturned to Norfolk on Friday even-
ig but Mrs. Ware visited with rel-
tlves at Surprise and Miss Ada and
Joy visited here until Tuesday , when
: ioy all departed for their new home.
Ir. Ware was engaged In the drug
business here for over ten years nnd
built up n large , prosperous business ,
nnd his numerous friends and custom-
rs very much regretted his retire-
lent from business in our city. Mr.
Vnre concluded to retire from bust-
ess nnd tnke n rest for the benefit of
ils health , but like all other energetic
usiness men he could not stay "re-
Ired. " He wns like a fish out of
vnter until ho was agnln locnted in
mslness. The many friends here of
Ir. Ware and his estimable family
vlsh them success in their new home.
Mr. Ware is now settled in his new
mnie , recently purchased on North
Ninth street. He says that he hopes
o treat the people fairly and to be
given a fair amount of patronage in
he drug business. He will have a
Irst class drug store in Norfolk ns
Bon ns he gets settled in the new
store , Koenlgstein's old stand , ami
vlll have for sale everything to be

Small Machine at Electric Light Sta
tion Cause of Fire Alarm.
An alarm of fire was turned in from

lay morning , between S nnd 9 o'clock ,
two hose companies responding to
he call , but their services were not
required and they were ordered bacl.
o the engine house before they had
a chance to throw a stream of water
The excitement was caused by the
burning out of the armature of the
small auxiliary dynamo. The dyna
mo had been left In connection with
the day circuit and when the big dynamo
name at the mill was started there
was trouble. The little dynamo
was built to stand ten amperes of
electricity , but when the forty am
peres from the mill power were
connected the lightning sizzled around
the machine and took off everything
burnable thnt it could reach. A few
dippers of water stopped the burning
process , but not before the machine
had been badly damaged. The ce
ment floor and other fire proof ar
rangements at the lighting Btntion
prevented a spread of the trouble.
President Bullock of the company
estimates the damage at $500 , the dynamo
name ns It now stnnds hnvlng n vnlue
of not more thnn $10. It will require
n new machine to repair the loss.

The wet weather has Induced the
'growth of large areas of wild barley
In Norfolk nnd vicinity , and it makes
a pretty sight , even though the grass
Is comparatively valueless for feed or
pasturage. With the sun glinting

beards and the wind gently waving
the grass , it does not require a wide
stretch of the Imagination to regard
it as ponds or lakes of water with the

C. Lerum of Plalnvlew , who used to

now In the fine stock business and

at Genoa. When Mr. Lerum carried

there was not a tree on the road ex

just returned from their visit at To-

vnlue had been stolen by the robbers.
They nre of the opinion that boys of
the neighborhood broke Into the house
as pins belonging to the engineers'
society were taken , and these would
never be taken by professional burg
lars. It will be remembered that this
house was entered about two weeks
ago , and was discovered to have been
robbed when the neighbors saw the
doors standing open. Mr. and Mrs.
Ross nre not sure that the burglary
was not committed on circus day , as
the crowds might have brought
thieves with them , but they are more
strongly of the opinion it was boys.
