ARCHITECT REFUSES TO ACCEPT
NOT ACCORDING TO CONTRACT
The Architect In Charge of the State
Normal School at Kearney Refused
to Accept the Buildings as Offered
by the Contractor.
Lincoln , Feb. 20. The state normal
board In session at Kearney will not
accept the new normal school at this
meeting. Such Is the report brought
to Lincoln , and the reason is that
Architect Herllnghof has refused to
o. k. the building. Some time ngo Mr.
Horllnghof ordered the contractors to
make certain changes In the structure
and yesterday when the board called
upon him to make his report the archi
tect reported against the acceptance
of the building until those changes arc
Mr. Herllnghof stated that the stone
work does not come up to the speci
fications and this Is the most serious
objections to the acceptance of the
bidding. The concrete is all right , the
mixture , Mr. Uerlinghof snld , being up
to the requirements , but the modeling
Is rough and is not what was con
tracted for. This Is the fault of the
stone makers , said the architect , and
as they are under bonds , ho wants the
board to hold those firms responsible
rather than the contractors.
The contractors have had hard sled
ding In making this building come up
to the specifications. After the walls
had been constructed to a height of
several feet , Mr. Herllnghof compelled
ho contractor to tear them down because -
cause the stone did not come up to
ho specifications. This caused much
lelay and also caused the contractors
o lose money on the job.
At this time there is duo the con
rnctors the sum of $0,200 , nnd It is
mderstood it will not bo paid until
Mr. Herllnshof gives his npprovnl

REV. J. F. ROUGHER DELIVERS EX
HE SPOKE OF THEIR LOYALTY
The Commercial Traveler , He Said ,
Endures Hardship nnd Privation Yet
Is Cheerful and Energetic and a
Lover of His Home.
Yesterday wns commercial travelers'
day at the Methodist Episcopal church
In Norfolk and the pastor , Rev. J. P.
I'onchor , delivered n most Impressive
sermon to the drummers who Sunday-
od here. The sermon was highly com
plimented by all of the "boys" who
nt tended. It wns n sermon particular
ly for the U. T. C. Mr. I'oucher said
In part :
"I am gratified to have with us this
morning so many of these knights of
the grip. I esteem It a great honor
nnd a high privilege to preach to them ,
but I confess a slight nervousness.
When the youngster makes his Initial
trip over his territory , with the bng-
gage car full of trunks nnd n lot of excess -
cess freight to pay , he feels his Im
portance , but his conrngc oozes out
of his linger tips when he tries to get
n busy merchant down to his sample
room. And when ho gets him there ,
he finds that his breath comes short
nnd he hns a disagreeable lump In his
throat when ho tries to talk business.
So I feel my Importance this morning.
I have got you down to my sample
room , and now 1 have you here , I hard
ly know what to say to yon.
"There Is no more characteristic
man In history , art or science than the
commercial traveler. I have seen
something of the life of these men. I
have married n number of them nnd
always got the generous fee and It
has been my sad privilege to stand by
their caskets and say a few words of
appreciation for some.
"The commercial traveler of today ,
compared with that of twenty years
ago , makes ono think favorably of the
doctrine of evolution. The profane ,
drunken , gambling , commercial travel
er is the exception. The rule Is that
the commercial traveler is a brlght.up-
right , Intelligent moral man. Some of
the best I know belong to the U. C.
T. It Is dlfllcult for them to keep cheer
ful and pleasant and follow their hard
life. Almost always on the road , the
Inconveniences of night trains , stop
ping at all classes of hotels , from the
cheap hash house where a frousy red
headed girl with her arms akimbo like
the publllst , sides up to yon and
trumpets in your ear , asking If you
want "Force,1 , to the Fifth avenue
hotel , where you tip the negro waiter
a quarter for every tea biscuit you get
the sl/.o of a dime , drinking all kinds
of water , eating all kinds of grub , exposed -
posed to all kinds of weather and ,
worse than all , separated from home
and loved ones , is surely a life that
lias its dlsadvnntnges.
"This love of home is one of the
strong characteristics of the traveling
man. They look forward to the end
of the week or the end of n three-
months' trip , when they shall cross
the threshold of their own home , and
bent their own fireside , with fond long
ing. Amid nil their hardships nnd
prlvntions and bitter temptations , they
hear a love nnd loyalty to home nnd
wife nnd children.
"The influence for goort that these
men might exert ns they ramify the
country , from ocenn to ocenn. In every
city , hamlet nnd town , is Incalculable
If I were a politician or desired nny
benetlt from the hands of the public ,
I would seek the favor of these men ,
for I believe them to bo more Influen
tial than nnv other class of men in
our republic. " '
This led up to a sermon on personal
CHANGE IN PLANS.

FOUNDLING AT HOME OF MR.
AND MRS. L. A. MILLER.
THEY DO NOT WANT THE CHILD
At 9:30 : O'clock Last Night a Blue *
Eyed Boy Was Left at the L. A.
Miller Home , With a Note Asking
That He be Given a Good Home.
tl-'rom Tuesday's Dally. ]
A baby boy , four mouths old , wns
loft on the doorstep of the L. A. Miller
home , South Fifth street , at 9:30 :
o'clock last night. A note accompanied
the child , asking that It bo given a
good home , and some clothing. The
child was left by an unknown person
who came to the door , knocked light
ly and then disappeared In the dark
ness before anyone was able to answer
the call. Mr. and Mrs. Miller , who
have children of their own , will not
keep the babe and are only now tak
ing care of it for a day or two because
they promised Jo Stuart , a Tllden far
mer , that they would. Mr. Stuart hap
pened to be In town this morning ,
heard of the foundling and , as Mrs.
Stuart is interested In finding homes
for babies , ho requested that the Mill
ers keep the child for a few days , and
ho will probably make an effort to
find a home for the little fellow near
Mr. nnd Mrs. Miller had just return
ed homo Inst night from a trip out ,
and had entered by way of the rear
door , when there came a knocking at
the front porch. Mrs. Miller hurried ,
to respond to the call nnd found , In
stead of n person standing at the
door , this little bundle of a boy lying f * '
on the step. A note , written on ordin
ary writing paper , said simply , "Take
It , give It a good home and buy It some
clothing. " The note was unsigned.
There is no clue whatever as to the
person who left the child. None of
the neighbors saw the strange visitor
and no trace has been found today.
The little fellow has blue eyes and
light hnir. He Is good natured and
does not cry much of the time.
What disposition of the boy will be
made can not as yet bo stated , since
Mr and Mrs. Miller are merely holdIng -
Ing for a day or two until some other
home , where ho mny be wanted , Is
On one corner of the note the baby's
age wns given as , "four months old
