prairie lire that had done Its work.

The line of railroad now known as
the Uonesteel branch of the North
western from Norfolk will become tin
main Hue ot the Northwestern betweei
Chicago and the Black Hills as sooi
as the Honesteel branch Is extended ti
join the Pierre-Rapid City line , ac
cording to the opinion of some of the
Norfolk trainmen who have studle (
the situation. It Is claimed that the
now line , from Rapid City to Chlcag <
by way of the Rosebud countrj
through Bonesteel and Norfolk , wll
cut off sixty miles of distance betweei
Chicago and the Hills. It Is also be
lieved that the Black Hills-Sioux Clt >
traffic will como by way of the Rose
bud extension and Norfolk , making
the same connection hero as Is now
made. Because It Is believed that the
Northwestern intends to extend to
Midland or some other point on the
Pierre-Rapid City line , trainmen hero
express the opinion that the tcrmlnu
of the line will bo stretched to Now

In the sixties the frontier was a

ipper waters of the Elkhorn for al-
uost 100 miles bad scarcely a settle-

came , vast and virgin as In the post
orttary age , larger than England and
Wales and five times larger than the
dngdom of Belgium , with vaster em-
ilres equally primitive upon Its bor-
lers , a boundless pasture for game
and a hunting ground for the Sioux
and Pawnee. As a relic of Its former
vustnoss northern Nebraska retains

Mr. L. Sessions of this city who com
plies the two essential qualifications
if a rare campflro historian , namely ,
i retentive memory and a charming
gift of narrative. The subtle charm
n the stories Mr. Sessions tells ol
ilonccr days Is lost In the written
uxrratlve because the personal equa-
tlon cannot bo reproduced In type.
With these limitations in mind the
following story gleaned from Mr. SeS'
sions' Inexhaustible repertoire is sub'
"In 1874 I was hunting for elk in
the lake region south of Long Pine In
company with the late Dave Ames
who resided near where the town ol
Meadow Grove now stands Mr.
Ames had como west In the fifties and
had served in Capt. John Taffe's com
pany repelling invasions of the hos
tile Sioux. Capt. Taffo was. by the
way , one of the first congressmen from
this state and Mr. Ames had bestowed
his mime upon his eldest boy. Sitting
iround the campfire at night Dave re
lated to me many thrilling Incidents
of frontier warfare , none of which are
of more interest than the massacre
of the family of Hudson Weisonmn.
Woisomnii was a neighbor of Ames
and together In 1SG2 with Taffes com
pany they had gone several hundred
miles northwest from Yankton to pun
ish the Sioux for frequent raids. In
July 180IS a rumor was brought to
them by friendly Indians that their
families In Nebraska had been killed
by Indians. Ames was determined
to return. An escort could not bo
spared from the small company ol
Capt. Taffo and an effort was ma'do to
dissuade Ames from undertaking the
perilous journey as it was consid
ered hopeless for him to bo able
to run the gauntlet of savages that
swarmed over the country between
the company and the Nebraska bor
der. With undaunted determination
ho Induced a French Canadian scoui
to accompany him and they made the
journey with hair breadth escapes am'
marvellous good fortune duo In grea1
measure to the acumen of the scout

After a long journey Ames and his
companion arrived at the Ames homo
> ppoallo Yankton on the Kouth side
) f the Missouri. His wlfo and chil-
Iron were missing from the home.
Still fearful for the safety of his dear
nies , Ames pressed on to the nearest
lettlomont down the rlvor. There ho
earned that his wlfo , anticipating
trouble , had ( led to her old home In
what Is now Dakota county. That
Mrs , Ames had real cause for alarm
wan attested by the terrible tragedy
enacted on the Wolsman claim near
ho Amos home. Weinman had left
o join his family before Ames had
ibtalncd permission to leave his com-
> any. The Welsman tragedy Is told
n the histories of the time.
"Welsman's claim was on Brock's
Jottom In Cedar county , where ho had
ocated with his family In 1857. On
lime 211 , 18GI1 , his wlfo had gene to
Yankton for household supplies and

zed what had occurred ho swore a

can Judge how the debt was paid by
ho fact that for twenty years after

as a plague spot and the name of

a warrior to blanch as if ho expected

COMMERCIAL CLUB COMMITTEE
STILL TO ACT.
WILL SOON TAKE MATTER UP
3ermanent Secretaryship of Club Is
Still In the Air Club Directors Want
More Members of Organization No
New Plans Developed.
[ From Tuesday's Dally. ]
The Commercial club committee ap
pointed recently to ascertain the sent-
ment of the railroads regarding a
union passenger station for Norfolk
asked for an additional extension of
.lino at the regular weekly meeting of
.ho club directors Tuesday morning.
The committee has yet to see the
Union Pacific and Minneapolis Oma-
la officials. It was stated that a meet-
ng with the officers would bo secured
is soon as possible and that in the
neantlme the efforts of the committee
would bo directed toward learning the
attitude of the Northwestern road to
ward possible plans for a union depot.
The meeting of the directors was
leld in the office of Mathewson & Co.
! n the absence of D. Mathewson , Sol
G. Mayer acted as secretary. No new
> lans for the upbuilding and advance-
nent of Norfolk were brought before
the meeting. The question of a per-
mxnent secretary for the Commercial
club Is still in the air.
The directors present voted to offer
all possible support to the Norfolk
board of education In Its efforts to
cope with the conditions resulting
fr ni the high school fire.
Sentiment favorable to increasing
the membership of the club was ex
pressed. No plans for an Increase in
membership have been outlined.
"Fra Diavolo , " as sung by the Beg
gar Prince Opera company , pleased a
largo sized audience at the Auditorium
last night. The voices owned by this
company are In several instances of
high order and the comedy portion of
the oporn Is well put on. All in all ,
the performance was well received.
Miss Shela Sheeloy , as Zerllna , has
a soprano voice of quality and she de
lighted her hearers. Mr. Iluntlnglon ,
as Fra Dlavolo , is a baritone singer of
merit and Jay Taylor was good as Lo

ensemble work was particularly pleasIng -

Temporary arrangements for giving
Instruction to the classes from the
high school building can not be an
nounced by City Superintendent Bod-
well until the latter part of the week.
The superintendent is working out the
details of the temporary school sys
tem to be in force In Norfolk during
: he remainder of the school term. It
is hoped that all classes may resume
work by the first of next week. The
board and the teaching force are work
ing to this end.
Week's Vacation Anyway.
High school students will have a
week's vacation at least. Neither will
the seventh and eighth grades , which
also occupied the destroyed building ,
meet during the present week. Chang
es which must be made in the build
ings lo be devoted to temporary school

These orders will be sent In at once
and the needed supplies will be hur

Mr. Bodwell's Office.
Superintendent Bodwell has estab
lished his headquarters for the pres
ent In the new Lincoln school build
ing. Pupils from the high school
building yesterday brought all school
books in their possession to the su
perintendent's office. Some 350 books
taken home by'tho pupils Friday were
saved from the fire. As the pupils In
the building wore using nearly D.OOO
books , the number of books saved is
a comparatively small item.
The equipment in the laboratory
rooms , all of which was lost In the
fire Sunday morning , was valued at
over $500. This equipment is very es
sential to instruction in the several
sciences , but cannot be replaced be
fore next September.
Plan Fire Proof Vault.
The new high school builhing when
it Is erected will contain a fire proof
vault. One of the most unfortunate
effects of the fire was the complete
destruction of all school records. No
trace remains of the high school rec
ords which Miss von Goetz , the princi
pal , had recently systematized and
rendered complete at the expense of
much time and effort.
No "Honor" Graduates.
Twenty-seven students graduate
from the Norfolk high school this
spring. There will be no "honor"
members in the class. All of the
written records of the scholarship and
work of the students Is gone. Pupils
will receive credit for past work
through personal conferences with the

The democrats of three wards of
Norfolk met in caucus last evening for
the purpose of selecting delegates to
the city convention and nominating
