A MYSTERIOUS ACCIDENT.
Cumlng County Man Injured on North
Wisner Chronicle : G. H. Schweers
of Grant township was a passenger on
the Saturday evening train returning
homo from Omaha , and when about
two miles this side of Beemer a mis
sile of some kind btoke a hole about
the size of the palm of a man's hand
in the car window near which he was
sitting. The flying pieces of glass
struck Mr. Schweers in the face , "in
flicting several slight cuts and bruises ,
one of them in the forehead between
the eyebrows bleeding quite profusely.
Tpou arriving at Wisner his wounds
were dressed by Dr. Morse.
Just what it was that broke the car
window is not known. The hole was
too large to have been caused by a
bullet fired into the car , but might
have been done b > a stone , a lump of
coal or a glancing piece of wood.
Nothing in the nature of a missile was
seen by Mr. Schweers , or by John
Vyborny , who occupied the seat be
side him , or by I. L. Galbraith , who
sat in a sent facing them. If it was
the act of a malicious or reckless per
son , it is to be hoped that ho will be
apprehended and made to suffer for It.

NEW BRIDGE AT FREMONT.
Northwestern Is to Spend $100,000 , In
Replacing Platte River Bridge.
Lincoln Journal : Work will begin
In a short tlmo on the replacement
of the Northwestern's wooden bridge
over the Platte river near Fremont
with steel. The wooden structure Is
a bridge of the truss pattern with high
railings on either side , while the new
steel structure will be a girder bridge
of the deck plate type. It will cost
when completed $100,000 , but it will
not be completed this year. A portion
of the wooden structure will be re
placed and parts of the wooden bridge
will be used for some time that all of
the value possible may be secured.
The old footings will be used as long
as they will last , and eventually they
will be replaced with concrete piers.
A feature of the new structure is
that when completed the new bridge
will be three feet higher than the old.
This will lessen the grade that much
in climbing the bank on the south side
of the river.
The Northwestern's bridge at this
location has been in service twenty-
one years , and has cost very little for
rebuilding or repairs when compared
to the cost of maintenance of other
Platte river structures. Where built
the river has always had a free chan
nel excepting when ice jams have
formed above it or below. It has
never been in serious danger from the
ice , and when other bridges have been
thrown out of service this structure
has remained in use.
During the past three years the
Northwestern has done a lot of re
building on the Lincoln line of the
road. New steel has been laid on part
of the line , ballasting of a large part
of It has been completed and bridges
have been strengthened.
PROSPECT HILL CEMETERY.
Officers For the Ensuing Year Were
The annual meeting of the Prospect
Hill cemetery association was held
yesterday at the undertaking estab
lishment of Sessions & Bell. G. Hal-
versteln , C. S. Bridge , Mrs. A. Osborn
and Dr. H. J. Cole became membera
of the association. L. M. Gaylord was
re-elected secretary. S. S. Cotton , L.
Sessions , W. J. Gow , C. B. Durland ,
S. G. Dean , L. M. Gaylord and Dr. H.
J. Cole were chosen trustees for the
coming year. Dr. Cole is a new mem
ber on the board.
After the meeting of the associa
tion the new board of trustees orga
nized by re-electing Col. S. S. Cotton
chairman and L. Sessions treasurer.
The treasurer's ' annual report showed
a cash balance of $220.03 , of which
amount $200 was set aside as a per
petual fund for future use. The usual
labor and improvements were be
stowed upon the grounds during the
past year for which Mr. Woodruff had
been paid $300.50.
Two lot owners have made an en
dowment of $100 each , the money to
be put on interest perpetually for the
maintenance of their lots. This is
considered by the trustees to be a
start in the right direction and may
open the way for others to make pro
visions for the future care of lots ,
graves and monuments after the pres
ent owners shall have died.
"The trustees can hardly Imagine
that the feeling which has prompted
the purchase of a lot and erection of
a monument at considerable coat
should be unaccompanied with a de
sire that a spot , on which so much
has been spent , should always be kept
In neatness and good repair , " said on *
member of the board. "To the very
natural wish that one's own place of
final repose should ever be decent
and respectable , a still stronger mo
tive Is added by our regard for the
memory of others. But these lots
and monuments will not take care of
themselves. No pains or expense In
the outset no solidity of material ,
no thoroughness of workmanship la
proof against the perpetual tender
cies to deformity and decay. In cases
of this sort , the action of nature may
prove unfriendly alike in processes of
growth and decomposition. Trees ,
shrubs , briars and weeds soon fill a
neglected lot with their tangled and
squalid growth , Head-stones and
monuments are seldom placed so firm
ly as : to defy forever the powerful
forces which arc constantly at work
to weaken and throw thorn down.
They belluvo that many who have
provided In Prospect Hill u last restIng -
Ing place for themselves and their
kindred , would gladly Insure their
grounds and Improvements against
such otTitcing and destroying Influ
ences. They know that they cannot
bo nlwa > s on the spot to watch the
beginning and progress of decay , and
do not forget that tholr own personal
care can , at the best , continue but a
little while. It Is still less to bo ex
pected that these who may como after
them should do what they have failed
"This cemetery Is undenomination
al and designed for the general public ,
not controlled by any church or so
ciety other than the cemetery associa
tion , which Is legally organized and
on record , and any obligation entered
Into by It will bo binding for future
time. Certificates of contract for this
purpose have been printed and arc in
the hands of the secretary , whore
anyone Interested can investigate the
terms and plan of the same. "

The News : The little three-year-old
son of Mr. and Mrs. Merrltt Collins ,
formerly of Norfolk , was killed In
stantly in a most pitiable manner at
Fargo , N. D. , Saturday afternoon , and
the griefstrlcken parents brought their
dead child back to Tilden last night

was terribly burned.
The little boy was sitting near a
range , in which the waterback had
frozen. Steam caused the waterback
to break and fly to pieces. A piece
of iron struck the tiny fellow in the
chin , killing him Instantly and almost
tearing off his head.
Baby Also Burned.
A smaller child , an Infant , was also
badly burned on both hands. The
steam , which burst out into the room ,
so enveloped things that it was im
possible to see what had happened
until several minutes later.
Mr. and Mrs. Collins came through
Norfolk last night , carrying their
burned babe and with a little corpse
In the baggage car.
Mrs. Collins formerly was Miss
Terry of Tildeu.
Mr. Collins Is a printer. About a

of something that makes Itself known

people whom Gale Gall or Gall Gale

said that one fond maid who knew
him as a leap year possibility , refuses
to be comforted. Bill Gall hailed from
Red Oak , Iowa , and In looking him up
It has been discovered that his name
was more placid , simply Horace Shap-
cott , which Is much better considering
what he caught in Wayne. It is fur
ther now known that he has a wife
living at Red Oak. The "Wayne

TWELVE MONTHS SINCE HIGH
NEW BUILDING NEARLY DONE
It Was Just One Year Ago That Fire
of Mysterious Origin Started In the
Basement of the Norfolk High
School and Destroyed it.
This is the first anniversary of the
high school fire. A year ago , on a
Sunday niornlntr. fire broke out In the
basement of the Norfolk high school
building , a building of press brick and
stone and one of the most imposing
school structures In north Nebraska.
First discovered at 5:20 : a. m. , the
fire burned with undlmlshed vigor
for two hours. By S o'clock the
school house was virtually a ruin.
The building which burned a year
ago was completed In 1S90. It was
designed by J. C. Stitt and cost the
district about $30,000. Insurance
amounting to $15,000 was carried on
the building. In the fire that destroy
ed the high school building all of the
school records of the city were lost.
On the site of the old building Nor
folk has nearly completed a new and
larger high school. But for over a
year the school facilities of the city
have been seriously crippled. It is to
the credit of City Superintendent E.
J. Bodwell and the teaching force ho
has gathered about him that the work
of the past year has been up to and
perhaps even excelling former stand
ards. The big fire proved Mr. Bod-
well's ability as an organizer.
FORTUNATE IN ONE WAY.
No Lives Were Lost in The Norfolk
High School Fire.
While all Norfolk mourned the loss
of the handsome high school structure
which was consumed by fire just a
year ago , there was ono feature In
connection with the burning which , In
view of the recent Cleveland holocaust
caust in which over leO children were
burned to death , should give relief to
the whole community. The Norfolk
school lire came in the night and on
Sunday. There were no children In
the building. No lives were lost. It
might have been worse vastly worse.
It was worse In Cleveland.

ANY BUILDING EMPTIED IN MIN
UTE AND QUARTER.
CONDITION OF THE BUILDINGS
Fire Drill Was Taken Up In the New
Lincoln School Building Yesterday
For the First Time Drill In Some
Schools Since Fall.
The terrible story of the Cleveland
school lire flashed across the wires
just a few days before the anniver
sary of the burning of the Norfolk
high school building has turned the
thoughts of Norfolk fathers and moth
ers towards the question of the safety
of their own school boys and girls.
The conditions in Norfolk school
buildings are not ideal in regard to
easy access from the buildings. Most
of the buildings were put up a good
many years before the public mind
had been aroused by a series of dis
astrous fires in public buildings.
A system of fire drills have been
In effect in the Norfolk schools since
last September. City Superintendent
E. J. Bodwell introduced the fire drill
when the high school was installed
temporarily in the Olney building
Most of the schools of the city can
be emptied In a minute and a quarter
Quick Fire Drill.
Yesterday the fire drill was called
in several schools. At the Olney
building the students who leave b >
the north entrance were out of the
building in a minute and a quarter
Those who leave by the south en
trance got out of the building in half
a minute. The new Lincoln building
where the fire drill was never intro
duced until yesterday , was emptied
in a minute and a quarter. At the
Washington school in the Junction
the fire drill is held once or twice a
week. The Grant school empties in
a minute and a quarter.
The old high school building was
always regarded as a fire-trap by several
oral members of the school board
When the question of a new high
school building came up these mem
hers insisted on a building with safe
exits in case of fire. In this respec
it is said that the new high schoo
building is well arranged.
"It is hard to think of the death o
those little children in Ohio as an
incident which will safeguard thou
sands of other children over the coun
try but that Cleveland fire is going
to make a change in the new school
buildings erected , " said Superinten
dent Bodwell this morning. "More
attention Is going to be paid to mak
ing It easy for the pupils to get out of
the buildings in case of fire.
"The situation in Norfolk Is to a
certain extent relieved by the fact
that there Is a relatively small num
ber of pupils In all of the grade buildIngs -
Ings , the point of congestion always
having been the high school building
which has held the seventh and
eighth grades in addition to the high
school. The new high school build
ing will be a more safe building.
"There are 250 pupils In the Grant
building. That has the biggest at
tendance. Take in the west Lincoln
building there are 175 pupils. All of
the doors swing outward. They are
locked until 8:30. : After that the
doors are unlocked and usually open.
"Notice of a fire drill Is always
given unexpectedly and often catches
the students at work at the black
boards. The fire drill can empty a
building safely provided the fire
doesn't cut off the exits. That Is why
two exits in opposite ends of a build
ing are so essential. "
A report that the city school build
ings were locked after school was
called was vigorous ! } denied by Nor
folk school authorities.
