N. W. Clover Talked With Man Who
Says This is the Point.
Norfolk would make an excellent
location for a canning factory accordIng -
Ing to an Iowa canner , whom N. W.
Clover , commercial agent for the Un
ion Pacific , met on the train the other
day. The canning factory at Fremont
was being discussed when the Iowa
canner took tip the question of Nor
folk as a location for a similar effort.
"Norfolk should have a canning fac
tory. " he said to Mr. Clover , "which
would can vegetables through the entire -
tire season not for thirty or sixty
days as is the case at Fremont. They
could start with peas and string beans
and run through the vegetables of the
season until the last thins in the fall ,
when they would finish up with corn
and pumpkins. That would keep the
factory In operation for six months
of the year and keep a large force
of persons employed half the year.
Then think of the truck farming it
would build up in the country sur
rounding Norfolk" , Truck farming Is
remunerative and employs large num
bers of persons. "
The grade of canned goods which
such a factory would put up would
not be strictly fancy and yet it is the
very kind that Is most easily sold.
There Is an enormous demand for just
such a grade as would be packed in
Norfolk , and you have a good terri
tory to sell out of without meeting too
fierce competition from other fac
tories. "
In regard to railroad rates for such
an Industry Mr. Clover declares that
suitable rates could undoubtedly be
secured of the railroads. He Is of the
opinion that the rate from Norfolk to
eastern points would be made only a
cent or so higher than out of Frcomnt ,
whore the factory has proven eminent-
ly successful. To the westward the
rate would give Norfolk a slight ad
vantage , and there Is a large trade In
western Nebraska , the Dakotas , and
Wyoming , which Is well worth going
after. In fact there are vast ranges
of country west of Norfolk where prac
tically everything they eat comes out
of cans. This trade should bo han
dled by a Norfolk factory with the
proper kind of management.

Wlsner Farmer Couldn't Find His and
Was Bound to Have One.
M. C. Carroll has recovered his lost
grip , which was taken from the Dead
wood train several nights ago. Ho
was In Wlsner , where ho thought the
grip was taken from the train , yester
day and was telling the cashier In ono
of the banks of his loss. They laughed
at him and told him they know where
'ffrji ' It w sA farmer living six miles out
of Wlsner had carried It off of the
* * x train because ho '
couldn't find his own
grip and was bound to have one. So
_ the lost property was recovered with
mm out further ado.
Trail of Crimson Leads From Fire
Scene to Tailor's Home.
Footprints of human blood form a
definite trail leading cast from the
scene of the Chicago lumber yard
flro , along Norfolk avenue. These
marks of crimson , the shape of a
man's foot and at Intervals indicating
steps , lead along the north side of the
street , on the sidewalk , dotting the
snow with spots of rod , and at Fourth
street turn south and go for several
blocks down the west sidewalk along
that thoroughfare.
Who was wounded ? Who has been
gashed wide open ?
These are the questions that canio
Into the mlndH of Norfolk people on
their way down town after the flro.
A pursuit of the bloody trail led to
the homo of John Ohm , n Norfolk
t'lllor. Mr. Ohm had slipped down on
the crossing near the scene of the flro
and had received a very severe gash
In his knee , bursting a blood vessel
which bled profusely and sprinkled
the sidewalk with footprints of near-
let. When the pools of blood flowed
from his knee , ho stepped Into thorn ,
thus forming the footprints. The
wound Is not serious.
Two Railroad Laborers Mix and One
Is Laid Out Cold and Wounded.
Oabrlel Harhath , a railroad laborer ,
was severely bruised and cut about
the head In a light last evening on
the railroad platform at the Junction.
He and Michael King , his assailant ,
wore two of a gang of railroad labor
ers on their way to Casper where they

drinking quite heavily and a dispute
arose between the two. They came
to blows and Kink knocked llarlmth
down and onto the rails of the track ,
cutting n number of severe gashes In
his head and rendering him uncon
scious. Dr. llolden was called and
gave medical attendance to the man ,
while King was locked up in the jail
until the train lelt for the west , when

A Habit to be Encouraged.

habit of keeping on hand a bottle of

herself a great amount of uneasiness
and anxiety. Coughs , colds anil croup ,
to which children are susceptible are
quickly cured by Its use. It counter
acts any tendency of a cold to result
in pneumonia , and if given as soon
as the first symptoms of croup appear ,
It will prevent the attack. This rem
edy contains nothing injurious am ;
mothers give It to little ones with a
feeling of perfect security. Sold 1

After Twenty-five Years of Litigation
That Has Brought Grief.
After twenty-five years of litigation
that has at one time or another
brought grief to a dozen men , the Pap-
stein place , ono mile east of the city ,
is being sold at sheriff's Hale today In
Madison. The trouble began twenty-
five years ago when the property , con
sisting of 210 acres east of Norfolk ,
came to Mrs. Florence Pap.stoln
through the death of her husband.
Shortly afterward , becoming heavily
Involved through the signing of notes ,
she deeded the land to Carl Schultz.
Later she tried to get It back from
him and , after taking It through the
courts , managed to have it transferred
to a Mr. Teade at Wlsnor. Soon this
was not a satisfactory arrangement ,
and , with the help of A. H. Oloson of
Wlsner and Attorney Koenlgsteln of
Norfolk , the land was deeded to A.
. Oleson. Then she fell out with
Oleson and Koenlgsteln and secured
M. D. Tyler as counsel. Later she
shifted attorneys again and secured
Harrington and Mullen of O'Neill but
they In turn wore succeeded by Attor
ney Ehrhardt of Stanton , who Is now
her attorney. And during all these
changes of ownership and attorneys
the land was dragged back and forth
through the courts until there will
probably bo but little left for Mrs.
Papsteln today after the sale Is made
and the Incumbrances are paid off.

How Proposition Game About.
lion W. M. Koborlson In an explan
atory talk gave the history of thopio-
po.Hcd ordinance , how It had come
alioul and why lie , as a member ofllio
Commercial club , Kiipported It.
"The position of the Commercial
club In IhlH matter ban been severely
criticised , " he said. "They have said
that we are working for the railroad
( hut wo are owned by ( he railroad.
That In not HO. We have been work
ing for Norfolk for the good of Nor
folk. Before ( lie embers of the old
Crelghton depot had ceased Htnoklng
Mr. Burnham and I called on the gen
eral superintendent of the Northwest
ern to see what ho would do toward
building a union station. For weeks
we worked at that. Then wo found
that It was useless to attempt to got
the railroads to agree to such a
scheme. Wo did not consult all the
members of the Commercial club at
once because wo had to act quickly
and wo know wo wore doing what wo
could for the bcHt Interests of Nor
Will Really Cost $20,000.
"Then they offered to build a frame
depot uptown If wo would give our
support to a proposition to vacate
Philip avenue. Wo took this up with
the city council and they refused It.
They demanded a $15,000 brick depot.
If wo get that they are to blame , not
the Commorclal club. It was they
that asked for the good brick depot.
I was talking with Mr. Hughes today
and he said that the plans are being
drawn In Chicago for this depot and
It will cost nearer $20,000 than $15-
000. In fact It may cost more than
that. They are going to straighten
out their tracks , take out their spurs ,
remove the stockyards , and clean up
the yards.
Answers the Arguments.
"We are told that they don't need
that much room. Mr. Hughes says
that they want to build a platform
from Park avenue to Madison avenue.
They are going to run longer trains
on that track and they want n plat
form long enough to accommodate
them. Then they must have room for
a separate freight house below the
station. The complaint has been made
that It will close up the street entire
ly. It won't. It will be open for pe
dostrlans. Thcro will bo a sufficient
opening for them between the pas
senger and freight depots. Besides
that crossing could well bo closed up
It is the most dangerous crossing In
the city. All the fatal accidents have
been there. "
City Wants It.
M. D. Tyler pointed to the govern
ment building and the hospital as ev
idences of what good buildings do and
will do for Norfolk and said that the
depot would do as much. "W all 1' '
iliouuht that Iho Crelghtoti depot hnit

Hccinod lo he a general iloHlrn for
'lomolhliig holler ; lo have the yardn

Minim to have a nice depot and nice
urnitnihi. Do we want ( he depot an
a city ? I think wo do and that , If It

ordinance would receive ulno-tentlin
of the voloii. I can't conrelvo how It
will hurt property and wo certainly
can't keep on getting noinotlilni ; with
