Mrs. Ott , who lives on Elm street
on the standplpe hill was thrown from
her buggy Saturday evening by an
encounter with one of the express
wagons. The wheels of the heavlei
vehicle caught her buggy and over
turned it , Mrs. Ott falling out anil
striking on her head. She suffered a
severe blow but was not seriously In
jured as she plucklly got to her feet
and climbed Into the buggy and drove
off after the vehicle had been righted.
She was indignant at the cause of her

had reason to be , but was undoubted

When it cornea to delightful mornIngs -
Ings a Nebraska July can occasionally
furnish thorn , 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 had 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 worhor would rev
el In his environment like a pig In
a clover patch. The spring has not
had all nice days , but when ono era
a series of them do come they are
heartily appreciated and the people
who can are making the most of this

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 G o'clock. Ho
was crossing1 Fifth afreet , between
the Pacific and Marquardt blocks
when he was run down by a 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. It was a wonder that
he was not trodden under the horses'
hoofs , but ho somehow managed to
escape such a calamity. Ho was
picked up by Norton Howe ami taken
into his father's place of business
where ha soon recovered from the
effects of the accident The man who
ran h.tn down wan exceedingly care

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
wan hero all during last week , IB now
In Chad ) on , having pulled out for that
place yesterday. The manager of the
carnival stated to a reporter bi < fen >
leaving that the week hero liad not
proven very successful from a Ilium-
clal standpoint , because of the un
favorable weather , but he scorned lo
lake the matter philosophically. He
said he thought Norfolk IH a good
town and hoped he would he able to
bring his company hoio at some fume -
( me date under more favorable condi
The Hroots ( of the city look much
bolter sluco the carnival company
cleared out. The novelty of having
touts , stands , booths , a big tank of
water and a tall ladder , a FOII-IH
wheel and a dance hall clutter up the
main business thoroughfare of the
olty , soon wore off , and merchants
were very much out of patloncoitli
the affair before the close of tlioi'H <
Instead of the carnival bolng n bonolli
to business , tradesmen llgurod that II
was a positive detriment , nnd they
and glad H Is gone and want no rope-
tltlou of It.
The shows of the carnival arc of
themselves clean and moral enough ,
but they do not rank very high as at
tractions. They are not of such a
nature that a person would care In
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 00-foot ladder into a tank of wa
ter , Is a really meritorious feature and
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 of
his three jumps on ( ho Fourth of .lntv ,
again appeared on the top of his , !
ladder Saturday , bowed to the garinq
crowds , slipped his foot off the plat
form and dropped through space , -lo
Ing a somersnult meanwhile , to the
tankful of water below
After doing three dives on Tuosdiv ,
Mr. Thompson became somewhat ill
an a result of the chills ho received.
The three trips to the water tank-
made him shiver and did him up.
For the past four years , pretty nearly -
ly every dav of the year. Thompson
has boon doing the high dlv 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 ns those of
a person who , in a dream , falls off a
high bridge nnd sinks down , down ,
down through space. The trick of
doing the stunt is all in the slart If
he starts right , Thompson has no fear
of not ending right side up.
"Do you over feel frightened before
the dive-was asked
"Not exactly frightened , " ho said ,
"though T do realize that every tlmo
I jump may be the last f know that
I must be absolutely positive of my
position In the start and that a slit )
or a wrong turn of my body may hurl
mo lo death , f realize that a slight
twist of the wind may blow me out of
the path or that , In turning the somer
sault , f may ( wist not quite right and
then split myself open on the wator.
Of course it Is dangerous , but it IB
thrilling for all that. "
