Controversy With Balky Hay Press
and the Machine Was Not the Worao
for the Difference Wounds Are Not
Serious But Uncomfortable.
Lynch , Nob. , Jan. 22. Special to
The Mows : Arnold TlilcsHcn had hla
nose broken and the back of his head
Imdly bruised and cut up yesterday
ovenlng In a hey press. The machine
did not work properly and was stopped
and Mr. Thelssen crawled under the
machine to find the trouble. While
working a spring broke , the loose end

Into the framework , breaking his nose
and Jamming his face badly. At flrst
it was thought that ho was badly hurt

. .A Musical Comedy , With Plenty of
Girls , Fun and Music.
Laughter , smiles , tears , show-girls ,
comedians , tuneful , musical , dramatic
situations , elaborate costuming and
Hcenlc display , are all promised Nor
folk theatre-goers when Broadway's
favorite comic opera star , Grace Cameron
oren , makes her appearance In C. II.
Kerr's latest , biggest and best success ,
"Little Dollle Dimples , " which Is now
In its second year , at the Auditorium ,
Saturday night.
This piece cannot bo termed a mus
leal comedy , nor Is It hardly after the
style of the old fashioned comic opera ,
but Is classed more In the line of a
musical drama. Miss Cameron , whose
voice is that of the lyric or coloratura
us well as a dramatic soprano , will bo
lieard to great advantage in the var
ious solos and finales , which are far
better , musically speaking , than the
average musical comedy or comic
opera affords. Yet she appears in her
lUtle baby impersonations which have
made her famous In the vaudeville
halls of all Europe and America. Her
part was fitted to Miss Cameron , taken
from the most notable success she
has achieved , as Dollio Dimples In
"Plff PafC Pouff , " at the Casino theatre
in New York , and to say that this part
is the best that Miss Cameron has
ever had an opportunity to appear in
is but putting it mildly. There arc
sliow girlS'galore , pony ballets , chappie
ichorus , and all that sort of thing whlcl
goes to make up the average musl
cal comedy performance ; but over anc
nhove this , there is one of the mos
notable casts that has ever appeared
in an entertainment of this kind
Prominent among the comedians of the
company is Al. Lawrence , the cele
brated mimic , "the man of a hundred
faces. " His delightful impersonation
of the simple and ignorant countrj
hey , who comes to the city and accepts
a position in a stylish family , attempt
ing to pose as an English butler , leads
up to many excruciatingly funny com
plications ; and his attempt to master
the English accent affords no end o
amusement. Mr. Will Phllbrlck as
sumes the role of a pettifogging law
> er who Is mercenary in the extreme
and he is willing to do most anything
for money ; but when he has to make
love to old Aunt Matilda Dunn , the
penurious but wealthy old New Eng
land spinster , his deslro for mone >
almost forsakes him at times. Still
his attempts to win the old woman's
money without her caresses are funnj
in the extreme. Speaking of the character
actor of Matilda Dunn , Miss Florence
Langdon Tempest , who made such a
distinct hit in the production of "Sam
Houston , " at the Garden Theatre In
New York City , also in the characte
rolp with Thomas W. Ross in "Check
irs , " is originating the unique comedj
character , and one that stands ou
prominently in the production. Mr
Louis London , the well known young
baritone , who has gained enviable
notoriety on the other heart breaker
Miss Daisy King assumes the role o
Maymp Green , an adventuress , and
her clear soprano is heard to good ad
vantage in the musical numbers given
1o this role.
Besides a large chorus , both inal
and female , a bevy of pretty show
girls , and a charming pony-ballel
numerous extra added features ar
carried by this attraction , Including
the great'musical act of the Crlterio
Musical Four , whlcli made such a ter
rific hit in the New York Roof Garde
in the past summer.
Miss Phoebe and Jessie Caulownl
present an elaborate electrical dancln
novelty with full chorus ; Miss Ola
Fa her appears in her celebrated vloll
specialty and the Elm City male quai
tette render many pleasing vocal se
lections. This attraction is one of th
gala bookings of the season and on
of the most Important events.
The seat sale will go on at The New
business office Friday morning. Ther
is every Indication that the Audlto
rlum Saturday night will be packet
with one of the largest audiences o
the season.
Norfolk always did like a muslca
comedy , filled with catchy songs and
funny people. Norfolk likes to laugh
nt a show , and forget its troubles.
That's why Norfolk likes the Prince
of Pilsen , the Isle of Spice and the
Mayor of Toklo. That , too , Is why
Norfolk will like Little Dollle Dim
ples Saturday night.
Miss Cameron Is one Nebraska girl
who has achieved theatrical distinc
tion In Now York and London. She
has already earned her reputation and
she will delight Norfolk. Al. Law-
ivnro , one of the country's best mimics
and fun-makers , will also bring down
Tills engagement will ho one of the
vents of the season In Norfolk and
limy out of town people arc expect-
d for the attraction.

Policy of the New Republican Board
of Cuming County.
West Point , Neb. , Jan. 20. Special
to The News : The policy of the new
republican board of supervisors of
liming county has been announced
is one of retrenchment and reform
While no charge of extravagance caner
or has been made against the outgo
ng board , it is realized that the cost
of running the county has materiallj
ncreased in recent years. The flrst
step taken In this direction was in
cutting down the amounts allowed to
county officers for clerical help. The
treasurer's application for a clerk al
$600 per annum was rejected and $200
allowed for clerk hire. The deputj
treasurer will receive $700. In the
county clerk's office a deputy at $700
has been allowed but instead of a re
corder at $ GOO , clerk hire to the
amount of $250 was deemed sufficient
Sheriff and superintendent's salaries
were fixed at $1,200.

The Eminent Russian Ambassador
Who Negotiated Peace With Japan ,
Was Impressed With the Acting of
This Clever Nebraska Star.
When the great Wltte , Russian am-
tassador , was In America as an envoy
rom Russia to negotiate terms of
icaco with Japan , he attended the
heater which Miss Grace Cameron
vas ploying In , nnd wished to meet
he clever young artist. Upon being
ntroduced , Count Wltte expressed
great pleasure In witnessing Miss Cam
eron's performance nnd desired that
she make a tour of the old world. The
ncldcnt was forgotten for the time ,
) iit strange to say that two days after
ward Miss Cameron received an enor-
nous offer for an extended tour of the
old world nnd accepted it. When the
time came for Miss Cameron to sail
she booked her passage on the Kaiser
Wllhelm dor Grosse nud started her
voyage , when to her great surprise
'ount ' Witte and his entire staff were
iboard the same steamer.
The peculiar coincident led to much
> 1 ensure in the meeting on board and
L'ount Witte and Miss Cameron have
jeen very good friends ever since.
Through the nllluence of the count
Miss Cameron's receptions every
where abroad were cordial nnd

Miss Cameron Will be Seen In "Dollie
Dimples" Here.
Grace Cameron makes her debut as
a star in Norfolk at the Auditorium
) ii Saturday night , in the tender , piqu
ant dramatic and nursical success ,
'Little Dollie Dimples , " by C. II. Kerr ,
author of "The Beauty Doctor , " "Over
the Fence , " "Papa's Baby , " etc.
Miss Cameron's role is founded in
part on a song which endeared her to
the hearts of New York theater-goers
when "Piff Paff Pouff" had Its long
and successful run at the Casino.
Miss Cameron has made many not
able successes In important comic
opera productions , including the "Bos
tonlans , " When Johnny Conies March
ing Home , " The Tenderfoot , " "Foxy
Qulller , " etc. , but her biggest and most
pronounced hit was that of "Little
Dollie Dimples , " when she played op
posite Eddie Fey at the Casino theater
for nearly one entire year.
Hence her present management In
selecting a play to suit Miss Canierons
ability , wisely founded her part and
fashioned it after tills notable selec
tion. "Little Dollie Dimples" is by
no means a light and airy or frivolous
musical performance , but is of the bet
ter class of comic opera , the music
being high class yet tuneful , the plot
being absolutely consistent , the story
and plot complete in detail as well as
intense In dramatic construction.
Pathos and tears are mingled with
laughter Incessantly , not unlike David
Warfiold's great success , "The Music
Master. "
In fact many of the scenes and situ
atlons in their simple yet Intense dra <
matlc force , are very much upon the
order of the "Music Master. " In one
scene where Miss Cameron appears
as a poor , ragged , yet amusing little
waif , she keeps her audience convuls
ed with laughter , as she stands by the
side of a table loaded down with all
sorts of good things to eat , her little
mouth watering and her eyes sparkl
ing to think of the feast she is going
to have as soon as the guests of her
stingy old auntie have departed.

Woman Accused of Killing Believed
to be Innocent.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , Jan. 18. Mrs.
Julia Ann O'Grady who last fall was
arrested on the charge of having mur
dered her aged husband. John O'Grady
at the O'Grady home , north of Sioux
Falls , will not be tried on the charge
of murder , as had generally boon ex
State's Attorney Orr appeared be
fore Judge Jones , of the state circuit
court , and moved that fclie charge
against Mrs. O'Grady be dismissed.
It appears that diligent search has
failed to bring forth anything in the
shape of evidence upon which a con
viction could be based , and under
these circumstances the state's at
torney asked that the case be dismiss
ed , and Judge Jones go ordered. Mrs.
O'Grady was under a heavy bond for
her appearance In the state circuit
sourt , and this now will be released.
John O'Grady was mysteriously shot
and killed while seated in his home.
One feature which pointed to the Innocence -
cence of Mrs. O'Grady and which has
not heretofore been printed In any
newspaper concerning her actions Im
mediately following her giving alarm
at the home of a neighbor that her
husband had been shot and killed.
The neighbor and his wife returned
to the O'Grady home with Mrs.
A lighted lamp standing on a table
revealed 'thd body of the old man on
the floor , but the neighbor and his
wife did not at the time enter the
house , remaining at the doorway and
poring into the room In which the body
Mrs. O'Grady , however , entered the
room , without hesitation , and going up
to the body of her husband lifted the
head and placed her cheek abainst that
of the dead man , plteously called his
name and urged him to speak to her.
Those who have had much to do with ,
criminals declare that this action clear
ly was an evidence of Innocence , and
that had Mrs. O'Grady really been
guilty of the wanton murder of her
husband she would.have shrank from
the body Instead of caressing the face
and head of her dead husband.
