Leavltt is a native of Norfolk and lived herewith with his parents , Rev. and Mrs. Wll Ham Leavltt , until he graduated from Doauo college and entered the minis try at West Point. Soon after leaving college he was married to Miss Jessie McGrew at Geneva , Nob. A few years ugo Mr. Leavltt was transferred from West Point lo Seward and later to the Plymouth Congregational , church at Omaha. Some months ago Mrs. Lenv- ill was nt lacked with the grip , which was followed by nervous prostration and Inflammation of the heart. She succumbed last Monday at the homo of her parents in Geneva.

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.

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.

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.

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 , the local candy factory is calculate ! to gladden the youthful heart. 1 It . ranges from the tiniest of candy egg ; to mechanical baskets that are madi to retail nt $7.50. These baskets an . topped with mechanical toys of tin Easter variety and hold several him dred Easter eggs of the "penny" size They would provide u featft for a wholi it'Sunday school.

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 manently. 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. 0,000 LOPPED OFF MAINTENANCE APPROPRIATION , NEW BUILDINGS WILL COME Bill Appropriating $1)1,000 ) For Now Improvements nt the Norfolk Innano Hosplt.il Has Been Recommended for Passage.
