Just unbutton your vest and put the enunclator to your body and he as perfectly understood as if you used the enunclator to speak through.

Deputy Sheriff Williams of Valentino arrived on No | 0 yesterday to return with her , but ac companied the girl only as far as Blair , she promising to continue her Journey homo from that point alone.

The steel car which has been used on the Norfolk-Columbus branch of the Union Pacific , has been taken off the run for a time at least and sent Into the Omaha shops where It was made. Railroad men have found a se rious objection to the new car in Its present form. They say that the steel construction makes the car too thin and that It Is too hard to heat. As steel conducts heat easily they figure that the car will tend to bo cold In the winter and hot in the summer. Since the car has been In service on the Co lumbus line it was found that given the same amount of steam over night the steel car would be twenty-five de grees colder In the morning than the smoking car. Outside of this the new steel designs are considered a success. The car Is said to be safer in case of a wreck and the entrance placed near the center of the car , something after the English style , is a convenience. STATE CONVENTION OF THE Y. M. C. A.

Sermon on the Norfolk Tragedy. Wayne Herald : A startling tragedy was the murder of Mrs. Valley Netha- way at Norfolk by her husband , and his subsequent suicide. Here is a case covering the whole gamut of conjugal experience affection and de votion , estrangement and alienation , and at last deadly hate and murder and self destruction. Such a case affords no other Illus tration more significant of the vicissi tudes of human existence. la the midst of life we are in death , but more solemn and Impressive still , In the midst of seeming security and happiness wo are Involved In danger and crushing calamity. In this strange Incident there Is only a fresh admonition of _ the weakness and un certainty which continually balances and offsets the stability which human nature dally reveals. To those persons who repudiate the Idea that the ways of man are ordered by fate , such awful events present a problem which seems Impossible to reconcile with the theory that people In this world are the architects of their own destiny. There Is quite enough In the Infiu- pnrn nf moral dlsnlnllno and training o make It worthy of persistent prac tice , but none the less , underlying all > f the agencies which education and ethical culture can supply nnd devise there seems to bo a mysterious force hat carries men and women quite be yond themselves nnd makes them , not nfroqucntly , the part of a sinister spirit of evil and destruction.

FOLLOWS ROOSEVELT'S ' PLAN Announces That He Will Not be a Candidate for the Third Time Will Have Served State Eight Years at End of His Term. State Superintendent J. L. McBrlcn will'not bo n candidate for n third term. His announcement made Satur day , throws the field open to Nebraska educators. In making his satcmcn Mr. McBrlcn named County Superintendent Perdue of Madison and Superintendent Bodwt'll of Norfolk In a list of those who would bo discussed In connection with the nomination for state superin tendent. The Lincoln dispatch announcing Mr. McBrlcu's Intentions says : State Superlnendent J. L. McBrlen , like Roosevelt , has announced that ho will not bo a candidate for a third term. Recently his name was connect ed with third term newspaper gossip. In answer to the question as to whcth or or not he will run again he said : "I have tried to hold this third term talk In abeyance. It has hardly seem ed proper to put myself in or out of the race so early in the campaign. But under the new primary law more lime Is needed for the people to study the fitness of the various candidates for the nomination than under the old con vention system. Therefore , I deem It my duty to the public as well as to those who may aspire to the nomina tion for state superintendent of public Instruction to say that I will not be a candidate for a third term. "While I am not unmindful of the high honor the nomination for n third term would confer , I appreciate the fact that nil the honors to which I am entitled have already been given me. For four years I was deputy under Mr. Fowler. On January 7 , 1909 , I shall have served four years as state super intendent. This makes eight years' service in this ofllce. It is a longer time than any other school man has been associated with this ofllce In these positions. I shall endeavor to serve the state just as faithfully until the last hour of the last ( fay of my term as though I were anxious to hold the of fice for life. Our office force will con tinue to come early , work hard and stay late. " When asked ns to the man most likely to succeed him , Mr. McBricn said : "That Is a question to be determined by the republican voters at the next state primary. I have no favorite can didate. There .are at least fifty first class school men in the republican party of Nebraska well qualified for the ofilce of state superintendent. I shall not use my official position to promote the candidacy of any man for this high office. Among the county superintendents who may aspire for the nomination are Supt. George O. Carrlngton , jr. , of Nemaha county , Supt. W. A. Yoder of Douglas county , Supt. F. S. Perdue of Madison county , Supt. C. L. Hopper of Sherman county , Supt. E. E. Larson of Phelps county , and Supt. A. V. Teed of Dlxon county. "Of the city superintendents who are likely to be urged for the nomina tion you may hear the names of Supt. Geo. B. Thomas of McCook , Supt. E. J. Bodwell of Norfolk , Supt. R. J. Barr of Grand Island , Supt. C. A. Fulmer of Beatrice , Supt. A. L. Cavlness of Fairbury , Supt. James E. Delzell of Lexington , Supt. J. D. French of lifts- tings , and Supt. W. W. Stoner of York. Among other names sometimes men tioned for the nomination are Dr. George E. Condra of the University of Nebraska , Supt. E. B. Sherman of the boys' Industrial school , and Deputy State Supt. E. C. Bishop. No doubt sentiment will soon crystallize in favor of a few of the leading candidates , probalby in favor of one from eacli congressional district. No more im portant state office is to be filled. Great care should bo exercised by the voters at the primaries in the selec tion of the candidate. "I appreciate the loyalty to my ad ministration of the school men and the school women throughout the stale regardless of political affiliations. I am grateful to the people for their confidence in me as expressed in two elections to this office. I am like the young man of whom Mr. Bryan tells , who , having received an affirmative answer from his best girl to a pro posal of marriage , on his way homo looked up into the starry heavens and said , "Lord , I hain't got nothin against nobody. ' " Hosklns Briefs. The work of repairing the depot and platform was completed during the latter part of last week. About two Inches of snow fell here the latter part of last week and quite a few rabbits were bagged as a result. Doc Averlll has moved into the prop erty of Wfa. Sentsy which was recent ly vacated by D. E. Nellor. The meeting of the Hosklns Telephone - phone company occurred last Friday night and an assessment of $25 was levied. There will bo no dance at Hosklns on Christmas eve as was planned , on account of the orchestra being unable to furnish music at that date. Some local talent has organized an orchestra and now Hosklns will have a dance every other Saturday night after Now Years. Frank Phillips and Frank Hart had a sort of a scrap In the barber shop last Sunday but neither party was in jured. The Hosklns schools will have two weeks vacation Christmas. Miss Mlnnlo Cane has returned from an extended visit with relatives and friends. John Kaulen has returned from St. .Top. . Mo. , after nu extended visit. Pete Kaulen returned to his feeding grounds at Wausn , where he expects to spend some time.

The young son of Frank Talk was taken sick last Wednesday and Is slow ly recovering. A program Is being prepared by the school to bo rendered at Uctzllck hall Christmas eve. The mall carriers are now starting out of Hosklns at 8 o'clock Instead of 11 , which Is a great help to thorn as they are now able to get In before dark , which they could not do before the change. ANOTHER ANTI-HORSE THIEF AS SOCIATION FORMED. AUXILIARY TO CENTRAL SOCIETY Tilden Branch Was Organized Satur day With a Membership of Thirty- three , Largely Farmers Becoming Dangerous for- Horse Thieves. The Tilden Live Stock Protective association Is the latest auxiliary to the North Nebraska Live Stock Pro tective association , with headquarters at Norfolk. The Tilden association was organized Saturday afternoon with n membership of thirty-three , practic ally all being farmers living tributary to that town. Messrs. Geo. Losey and Adrian Craig represented the central association at the meeting and assist ed in the organization. The officers elected are : President , J. E. Bolton ; vice president , A. M. Jones ; secretary , H. W. Klngery ; treasurer , John Mich- nelson ; captain , Geo. Connely. The now organization will adopt the by laws and rules governing the parent association , and will work In harmony with it for the suppression of horse stealing and the capture of thieves. It will only be a comparatively short tlmo before practically every town In north Nebraska will have such an association all allied and working with the main organization. When that time comes It will be practically impossible for a horse thief to get any great distance with a stolen animal. The efficiency of the north Nebraska association was illustrated a short time ago when a team , buggy and har ness , taken from fanners near Battle Creek , were returned to their owners by Captain Losey of the association , after a hard chase which lasted three days and extended over many miles of country. It is true the thieves were not apprehended , because they aban doned the stolen properly when they found the chase after them was so hot that it became uncomfortable , but every dollar of value taken was re turned to the owners. With a strong central organization working In harmony with a number of auxiliary association , horse stealing will In time become so unpopular that it will cease to be profitable in this section of the country.
