Easter Sunday Is always suggestive
of spring and the coming of Easter
indicates that the spring season has
been safely deposited in our midst
Oilier evidence is also offered lo prove
that our first touch of spring has been
the real article. The first strawber
ries of the season wore on Hie Nor
folk markel this week , selling for
twenty cents a box. The first crate
readied here early in the week , while
a fresh shipment was received for to
day's Easter demand. Dealers say
thai the strawberry season is now
"on. " Moreover small and large boys
indiscriminately are playing baseball
and local dealers in ball supplies state
that a lively sale is on. Spring gar
dens are being planted within the
city limits while outside the farmers
are getting busy with their spring
plowing and planting.
E , C. Harris of Chadron , formerly of
Norfolk , has sold out his banking and
catlle Inlerests in western Nebraska
and has purchased a gold mine in Ne
vada. Mr. and Mrs. Harris are now
preparing to move to Reno , Nov. ,
where Ihey will make Iheir future
home. Fred Harris , recenlly graduat
ed from Yale as n most efficient min
ing engineer , will accompany the fam
ily to the Death Valley gold region
where he will have an important posi
tion in managing the new mine. Mr.
Harris believes that he has a real gold
mine which will net large profit. Mr.
Harris was formerly superintendent of
the F. E. & M. V. railroad here and
later at Chadron. For a time he was
superintendent of the Union Pacific
at Cheyenne. He has many friends
over the enlire west who will wish
him success In the gold mine.
As the railroad wage controversy be
tween the weslern railroad managers
an.d Ihelr employes nears a crisis at
the Chicago conference it is followed
closely by the Norfolk railroad world.
The local railroad men are naturally
non-committal on the subject. If a
strike were ordered it would of course
affect Norfolk with Ihe rest of the
west. It Is said in this connection ,
however , that a strike of the Brother
hood of Railway Trainmen would not
call out the greater number of the
Norlhwestern's conductors for the rea
son that their organization for some
> ears past has not been nffilialed with
the trainmen's organization. Many of
the younger conductors also belong to
the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen
and would be affected by the course
of thai organization the same as the
other trainmen who are members.
The "henless" Easter egg is win
ning oul and the old hen is being
pushed aside from anolher sphere ol
Industry. The sale of cindy Easter
eggs and other Easter novelties this
year indicates that they are on a\ ris
ing tide of popularity. The Faucett
Carney-Hnger company filled 435 orders
dors for special Easter goods from
their Norfolk candy factory this year
These orders came from candy deal
ers throughout their territory. Deal
ers cleared out their stock and sent in
hurry orders for more candy eggs am'
engaging looking candy rabbits. Nor
folk merchants did an increased bus !
ness In Easter candy novellies till1
month. The array of goods carried ai

to gladden the youthful heart. 1 It

to mechanical baskets that are madi

NORFOLK SOCIETY WILL RESUME
HAS HAD FORTY DAYS' REST
Easter Morning Will Belong to Ma
dame Fashion Cards and Dinners
and Dances Will Again Hold Sway

[ From Sntunlny'n Dully. )
Social Norfolk , having rested for
forty days during the days of lent , is
prepared to cast off tlio mantle of In
activity and to resume with spirit the
dinners and dances and cards that
help to contribute to the Joy of living.
With the coming of Easter morning
the social life of the city will take on
new energy and once more , until the
torrid heat of summer months inter
feres , there will he gatherings togeth
er in a more or less formal way. Dur
ing lent there have been a few scat
tering Informal events , little assem
blies of clubs on regular dates , or
Fomethlng of that sort , but the forty
days have caused a decided lull In the
ceaseless whirl of gaiety that punc
tuated each passing week earlier In
The Easter morning will bo a mile
stone of more importance than mere
ly marking the end of lent. Norfolk
femininity has been preparing for the
occasion for lo ! these many weeks and
It Is freely predicted that the halH

Sunday morning will bo beautiful to
behold It will bo the day upon which
Madame Fashion will sot the example

RAILROAD COMPANY DOES NOT
DESIRE IT CLOSED.
TO BE NO MORE CONTROVERSY
The News Has It From Reliable Au
thority That the Northwestern Rail
road Has No Desire Today That Phil
ip Avenue be Vacated.
Philip avenue will never bo closed
for n railway station. Citizens who
protested against vacating one of the
finest avenues that Norfolk owns for
the sake of n railway .station of cer
tain cosl , may as well , so far as Hie
outcome is concerned , drop their case
and save the cost of carrying the mat
ter to the United States supreme court.
The mailer is already settled , and per
The News lias It from reliable an-
horily that the Northwestern railroad
Iocs not desire the closing of Philip
avenue for their station and Hint they
would not accept the vacated streel
'or a station if il were offered. Pres
ent plans of the company , It Is known ,
contemplate either joining with the
Union Pacific In a union station or
wilding , In case the Union Pacific re
fuses , a dcpol of Ihelr own , hut In
neither event will the closing of Phil
ip avenue be asked or even considered.
This change of position is due , II is
said , not to any legal phnso of the
question , since the courl decisions
thus far have all boon In favor of al
lowing the street vacation , but to a
recognition on the part of the North
western railroad company of the fact
that the Btrcel closing Is not unani
mously desired In Norfolk and would
cause undesirable friction among
neighbors in the community.
Trouble over Ihe street closing , the
railroad company Is thought to argue ,
is totally unnecessary , since the rail
road needs a station anyway and can
just as easily build It at a point where
no street need be closed.
The most that will bo asked In any
event , ! t is said , will be Ihe right to
put a brick platform across Philip av
enue even with the rails , which would
be , In reality , nothing more nor lesf
than paving the street.
The announcement that the street
closing is not desired by the railroad
company will bring to an end a lonj ;
controversy which , It now appears , hat
been without real need atany stage
A disgraceful little passenger coacl
has been used for more than a yeai
as a station , waiting for settlement o
a court problem that need never hav <
arisen at all. Many living I" the vl
clnlty of Philip avenue protestci
against the threatened closing of tha
10 thoroughfare and this newspaper , ni
staled some days ago , believes tha
their stand was a righteous one.

Norfolk Is the business center of
Madison county. What affects the

Madison county's rcsourses is part
and parcel of the foundation upon
which Norfolk builds.
Norfolk Is also In a way 'V natural
jenter of the four counties whose cor-
icrs meet a few miles to the north
east of the city. Norfolk's location
and railroad facilities promise to push
.be town forward as the center of
lorthern Nebraska. In many ways re-
Hilts In tills direction are beginning to
achieved and people in northern
Nebraska and southern South Dakota
ire being directed toward Norfolk as
the logical business center of their
section. But after all Madison county
