Mrs. Ott , who lives on. Elm street
on the standplpe hill was thrown from
her Oiuggy Saturday evening by ail
encounter with one of the express
wagons. The wheels of the beavlei
vehicle caught her buggy and over
turned It , Mrs. Ott falling out and
striking on her head. She suffered n
severe blow but was not seriously In
jured as she pluckily got to her feet
and climbed Into the buggy and drove
off after the vehicle had boon righted.
She was indignant at the cause of her
ombarrasing calamity , and perhaps
had reason to be , but was undoubted
ly thankful that It was no worse In
When it conies to delightful mornIngs -
Ings a Nebraska July ran occasionally
furnish them , and today brought one
of the choicest In the bunch. With
the sun out brightly giving its reflec
tion In millions of dewdrops ; with
the air as pure as though It bad been
sifted and strained through the most
perfect filter and afterward charged
with life and strength-giving ozone ;
with no breeze blowing and not a
cloud to be seen anywhere , and the
temperature Just cool enough to bo
bracing , it was a morning that would
make anyone think of picnics and
outings and fishing parties and out
door enjoyments , while the farmer
and other out-door worker would rev
el In his environment like a ptg In
a clover patch. The spring has not
had all nice days , but when one era
a series of them do come they are
heartily appreciated and the people
who can are making the most of thla

Clyde Walton , the six-year-old son
of Mr. and Mra. James F. Walton ,
was the victim of a careless driver
last evening soon after C o'clock. Ifo
was crossing1 Fifth street , between
the Pacific and Marqunrdt blocks
when he was run down by ft livery
driver and fell under the wheels of
the buggy One wheel passed over
his head and ho was otherwise
bruised and injured but fortunately
not seriously. Ft was a wonder that
he was not trodden under the horses'
hoofs , but ho somehow managed to
escape sunh a calamity. Ho was
picked up by Norton Howe and taken
Into hia father's place of business
where he soon recovered from the
effects of the accident The man who
ran htn : down wan exceedingly care
less He approached the crossing at
a swift pace , and after the boy had
heeu knocked down and run over ,
ho never halted for a moment or
slackened speed to make inquiries
but drove In the opposite direction at
a stiff pace. Indlgnunt onlookom

THE DIXIE PEOPLE PULL STAKES
MERCHANTS ARE QLAD OF IT
The Week Was a Disappointment to
the Merchants ns Well as the Com
pany Norfolk Wants No More of
the Same Kind ,
The Dixie Carnival company , which
was hero all during last week , Is now
In Chndron. having pulled out for that
place yesterday. The manager of the
carnival stated to n reporter before
leaving that the week here had not
proven very successful from n finan
cial standpoint , because of the un
favorable weather , but he seemed to
tnko the matter philosophically. Ho
said lie thought Norfolk In n good
town and hoped he would be able to
bring bis company hern at some fu-
tuio date under more favorable condi
The streets of the city look much
belter since the carnival company
cleared out. The novelty of having
tents , stands , booths , a big tank of
water and n tall ladder , a Fouls
wheel and n dance hall clutter up the
main business thoroughfare of the
city , soon worn off , and merchants
were very much out of patience with
the affair before I he close of the week
Instead of the carnival being n benefit
to business , tradesmen figured Hint It
was a positive detriment , nnd they
and glad It Is gone nnd want no repe
tition of It.
The shows of the carnival arc nf
themselves clean and moral enough ,
but they do not rank very high as at
tractions. They are not of such a
nature that n person would care to
see them a second time , because on
the whole they are Indifferent Imita
tions of good attractions. The Jump
of Prof. Dana Thompson from the top
of a ( ! 0-foot ladder Into a tank of wa
ter , la a really meritorious feature ami
the chief attraction of the whole show.
LEAP FOR LIFE THRILLS.
The High Diver Tells How it Feels to
Jump From the Top of the Ladder.
Prof. Dana Thompson , the high div
er , after resting from the effects nf
his three jumps on the Fourth of Julv ,
again appeared on the top of his t.-il !
ladder Saturday , bowed to the ga7lng
crowds , slipped his feet off the plat
form and dropped through space , do
Ing a somersnult meanwhile , to the
tankful of water below
After doing three dives on Tuosdiy ,
Mr. Thompson became somewhat 111
as a result of the chills ho received.
The three trips to the water tnnk
made him siiivor and did him up.
For the past four years , pretty near
ly every dnv of the year , Thompson
has been doing the high dive stunt.
In the summer time he Is in the north
and In the winter time In the south.
His sensations , as ho falls through
the air , may be described as those of
& person who , In a dream , falls off a
high bridge and sinks down , down ,
down through space. The trick of
doing the stunt Is all In the si art If
he starts right , Thompson has no fear
of not ending right side up.
"Do you over fool frightened before
the dive-was asked
"Not exactly frightened , " ho said ,
"though T do realize that every tlmo
I jump may bo the last. I know that
I must he absolutely positive of my
position In the start ami that a slip
or a wrong turn of my body may hurl
mo to death. I realize that a slight
twist of the wind may blow me out of
the path or that , In turning the somer
sault , I may twist not quite right and
then split myself open on the wator.
Of course It Is dangerous , but It Is
thrilling for all that"
