WAQERS WERE MADE IN NORTH
NEBRASKA ON RESULTS.
SOME BET ON SHALLENBEROER
One Man In Stnnton Lost $40 Because
of One Vote Which George Eberly
Got as County Attorney Even
Money Was Placed on New York.
Betting on election Is always a pret
ty fair gunge ns to the Interest taken
In the campaign and there was an
unusual amount of wngorlng on the
recent off-year election by people of
northern Nebraska. Some of the wagers -
ors were of pretty good size and some
of thorn wore won or lost by mighty
close margins so close , in fact , that
in some cases the official canvass will
be necessary to determine the win
As an example of the Interest taken
on the gubernatorial election by Nor
folk republicans nnd democrats , one
hot was made several weeks ago , oven
money , that Sheldon would have at
least 2,000 plurality. The democrat
In this instance had been proclaiming
his faith In the election of Shallon-
berger and had declared to a promi
nent republican , "Why , man , you don't
have any show to elect your ticket at
all this year. "
"How much will you bet on that ? "
asked the republican.
"I'll bet you ? 50 that Sheldon docs
not get 2,000 plurality. "
The republican happened to have
the fifty right with him. The demo
crat dug out his and the bet was made.
Sheldon got 15,000 plurality.
One Vote Changed $40.
Down In Stanton one vote for
George A. Eberly as county attorney
changed $40. Ono man bet another
that Eberly would not have more than
100 majority as county attorney. Eb
erly is a republican and bis friends
think that in democratic Stauton coun
ty , which gave Graves about 150 , that
Eberly did mighty well. He got 101
Interest In the Now York election
reached the betting point in Norfolk.
Two young men wagered $5 each on
the election , even money.
HEARTS WERE BET.
Odd Wager by Two Sioux City Young
Women on Cummins.
Sioux City , la. , Nov. 8. One woman
youthful and pretty bet her heart
against the heart of another maiden
of like charms , on the recent election.
The one who lost Is not to be subject
ed to the ordeal which Shylock had
planned for Antonio , but she has had
to relinquish her "Heart's desire , " the
love of a certain young business man
of this city.
Politics has permeated all classes
1 and grades of society during the cam
paign just past. This has been the
home of George D. Perkins , who bolt
ed the republican ticket when ho was
defeated by Cummins for the guberna
torial nomination. He is prominent
and his influence split the party and
kept interest up. The young women ,
In question , whoso paas are normally
republican , talked politics ono evening
and made their novel bet ono that
Cummins would be re-elected govern
or and the other that Porter , the dem
ocratic nominee , would win.
They were admirers of the young
business man and each was so sure
of winning the wager and thus ridding
nerself of a rival , that the stakes were
quickly agreed to.
The young man had been paying at
tention to both that is what troubled
them. They weren't sure to which ot
the twain the majority of his affec
tions belonged. Realizing that n >
wager could be made which would
satisfy him , If ho were in love with
the loser , the stipulation was that the
one who lost was to refuse to accept
attentions from the young mail and
thus discourage him. The winner
thought they , would then be able to
have "clear sailing. "
The names of these heart-gamblers ?
Oh , mercy ! It would never do to tell
them. They belong to well known
families , and while guessing may be
good , to fix their identity would be
prolific of too much embarrassment
and might scare away the object of
their wager from both.
Other novel bets reported In this
city were between married people , one
husband agreed to give up smoking for
a year If Cummins was re-elected ,
while his wife promised to eliminate
the chewing gum during a like period
If Porter won. Another husband bet
on Congressman Hubbard's success ,
stipulating that In case of his defeat
his wife should have violets as long
as the season lasted and American
beauties the balance of the year.
Dickson's success would have meant
that she was never to ask him to play
cards "with a few friends I have asked
in for the evening. "
BOYS ARE PLAYING MARBLES
"Mlg" Fever Is Upon School Grounds
and Battles Ensue.
"Lag a lay vant you , knuckle down ,
vant hides. Oh I hold on there , I had
vant and you ludged a mile. If you
don't cut It out I am going to take my
mlgs and go homo. "
"Oh ! no you won't , you are four
winner on mo now and If you don't
play it out I'll get oven with you.
This was the conversation which
took place between two small boys
who were crawling about on the
ground under a gas street lamp on
one of the sldo streets of the city last
night And this la no unumml sight
just now , as almost every street light
which Is near a patch of level ground
where the Hinall boy can piny , Is put
to use by from two to a dozen of them
who are anxious to win each other's
"mlgs , " ns they put It. Many slang
words nro used such as "vant , "
"scrowboney and three on the flat. "
Asked the meaning , they only reply ,
" 1 don't know what it moans , only 1
know you have to say 'vant' before
they shoot or they will bo liable to
cheat. " The Lincoln school scorns to
attract the largest number of players ,
on account of bystanders , for If a boy
Is any player at all it Is bis doslro to
have the other fellows sco him "skin
"om. " Norfolk's schools have nn un
usually clever lot of marble players
scattered among the classes , and this
of course accounts for so many hotly
contested battles over a few of the
tiny china and crockery spheres.

WORTH OF A WIFE.
How Those of Pierce County Farmers

ROSEBUD EXTENSION IS BUILT
EIGHT AND HALF MILES.
TO BE FINISHED JANUARY 1
Train Traffic Continues Heavy Through
This Scctoln , Railroad Men Arc Still
Kept Mighty Busy and Car Shortnge
Has Not Been Relieved.
Work on I lie Rosebud extension of
Iho Northwestern railroad , out from
Honesteel. Is progressing rapidly ami
will be finished to the Tilpp count >
line , II IH expected , by the first of the
year. The rotistriu'tlon work has boon
completed eight and a half mllon out
from lloiumteel and Iho enmp of workmen -
mon bus been moved beyond St.
Charles. With tlio extension , the
Rosebud reservation to\\ns are feeling
happy beeauso It will mean that pro
visions of all sorts will be brought to
thorn much cheaper , the prices on
tholr farms will advance nnd more
neoplo will go In. People In that sec
tion look for the opening within a few
years of Trlpp county , which will bring
another rush of people through hero.
The opening of this Increased territory
menus much to Norfolk , adding to the
commercial prcstlgo of this city nstho
renter of a vast area. Norfolk Is tak
ing advantage of this geographical lo
cation in ninny lines of Industry right
now , and the field Is coming to bo
more regarded us valuable lo this
Heavy Railroad Traffic.
Hallroad ( ralllc in tills division of
the Northwestern Is still very heavy
and all train crows nnd locomotives
are being worked without vacations.
The car shortage still continues hero ,
as It dims all over the United States.
TO DESERT FREMONT DEPOT.
Northwestern Railroad , It is Reported ,
Will Leave Union Station.
Fremont , Neb. , Nov. 10. The news
that the Northwestern had been con
sidering the matter of buying the
south portion of the Main street block
bordering First street on the north
has started some discussion of the de
pot subject In railroad circles. Local
employes of the road are divided In
opinion as to the likelihood of such a
move. Ono man who has kept himself
posted upon the recent trend of rail
road affairs says ho believes without
doubt the Northwestern will ultimate
ly "pull out" of the union station and
that such a move Is contemplated at
the present 11 mo.
"It Is evident that tbe Northwestern
in time will complete a line through
to the Pacific coast and admitting this
a man must admit that the road IK not
going to do Its business upon the plan
of the present arrangement , " said this
man. "There can bo no question of
It. Too much would bo at stake with
an old transcontinental line like the
Union Pacific for competition. I be
lieve the Northwestern contemplates
this and that the proposed acquisition
of the Main street property has It In
view. The ground where the dispatch
ers' olflco is located furnishes an Ideal
place for a passenger station , but to
sot elllclont trackage It would bo nec
essary to own part of the land on the
other sldo of the street. "
It Is pointed out for further argu
ment on this side that Iho union sta
tion In sl/.o and general construction
Is suitable for only one road.
On the other hand a railroad man
declares the chances of the Northwest
ern putting up an independent station
are remote for many reasons. Ono of
these Is that the present arrangement
ias been very satisfactory. Another
s that the road would have to give
the present station to the Union Pa
cific practically without recomponsa-
tlon If the latter , as It probably would
lo , concluded It wanted to continue
the union plan , and refused lo hu > the
other half interest.
If a store's publicity "drags , " the
store will also "drag. "
NORFOLK AS A NURSERY POINT
Among other Industries that have
been built up in Norfolk primarily be
cause of tis admirable geographical
locution ns the gateway of the new
