wild animal dlHpla > of anger In the
carnival circus wa.t real.
Saturday afternoon Tralnor P.
Storms , the man who puts the carnival
panthers through a series of roluctnnt
fttunts In the big Iron cage In the
Parker animal circus , was attacked by
the larRcst of the panthers.
The point In the program where all
of the pant hers are arranged In a
rising series along the front bars of
the cage had been reached. The
> largest of the panthers , a sullen school
of unwilling pupils , was placed at the
top of the pyramid.
The attack eamo unexpectedly.
'There was a quick dart of the big
cat's paw. 'The claws struck home
In the man's face. Almost In the
name Instant Storms came back at
the cat with his good right arm. Then
ho punished the panther severely.
What remained of the program was
completed without further Incident.
Storms paid no attention lo his face
until the last panther was back In the
wagon cage.
'The panthers have not been In cap
tivity long. A Norfolk audience , It
Is said , is not the llrst to have seen
them attack their trainer.
North Nebraska Banker nt lown State
Association Meeting.
Sioux City , June i.v The bankers'
convention Is over and every train out
of the city was packed with some of
the fifiCi capitalists who helped to
make the Sioux City meeting the big
gest , busiest , and best convention In
the life history of the association.
One of the speeches delivered which
Is worth more than ordinary mention
Is that of 10. R. Gurtiey. vice president
1 I of the First National bank of Fremont ,
Neb. , formerly of WInslde , who ad
dressed the convention on the "Coun
try Banker. " His speech proved to
be the most enlivening and wittiest
address given during the two days' '
He called the bankers the greediest
men on earth and made them like it ,
His address was replete with unique
figures of speech and throughout the
discourse the big audience attested its
appreciation of Mr. Gurney's remarks
by frequent Interruptions of sponta
neous applause.
Mr. Giirney paid a pretty tribute ti (
the retiring president , H. M. Carpentei
In his opening remarks.
" 1 llrst met President Carpenter
when I was a toddler knee high. It
was my llrst luisiness transaction and
1 beat Mr. Carpenter. 1 went into bis
bank with a $ f > note to secure there
fore live silver dollars. I not only got
the llvesilverdollars , but 1 got a smile ,
n kind word and an invitation to re
turn. All of which must be leckoned
on my side of the books in that parti
eulnr transaction. I will never forget
my llrst meeting with President Car
penter. 1 wish you men to remember
this , t'se the smiles and the kind
words. 'They will go a long way.
"Andrew Carnegie says that we In
America have the worst banking sys
torn In the world , but out of that worst
system we have developed the best
hunkers in the world.
' "There are bankers in every cornei
of the earth , doubtless some of then
I In heaven , and of the country bankers
theie are three In every two-bnnl-
town and two of them In every one-
bank town.
"The country banker is the salt of
the earth. He Is democratic. He gets
out In a cattle country and soon learns
to cut a bull out of a herd of cattle
from a broncho's back as easily as his
banker friend In Wall street learns to
hull the stock market.
"But take by contrast the oriental
banker. He Is a god. He sits in im
pressive state. You go to him and try
to make a touch and ho will turn to
you the face of a Sphinx. He will tell
you to return in three months. The
oriental banker is the greatest deliber
ative body on earth and as slow as the
sixtieth congress.
"Not so your Iowa aud Nebraska
country banker. Who ever heard of
a Umdon banker who could work a
Riverside car conductor with a 'Fig
ure S' ticket.
"We country bankers meet the horny
handed rurallst as a brother. Wo take
him by the hand and lead htm Into the
inner sanctum.Ve don't care If ho
happens to have 'Peruna1 on his hoots
or anything else. We fraternize with
him."If a country banker lives In the
corn belt ho lives corn from daylight
to dark. He thinks corn , talks corn
oats corn and drinks corn and corners
"Tho country banker distributes
cheer and encouragement along wltl
clearing house certificates. The conn
try banker Is the mightiest commer
clnl power that this world has evei
known. American through and througl
nnd n product of this great land o
ours the country banker Is more direct
ly and sincerely Interested In the welfare
faro of the particular community li
which he happens to reside than nn :
other man. Suffering and loss tethers <
others are the bane of lila life. Hen

Burlington Will Extend.
Mr. Harrington is certain that the
extension of the Burlington fron
O'Neill to Dunning will be made with
in the next eighteen months but does
not think that the extension \\ill lx
made until next year. "Assurance ;
ghon Sioux City interests since the
Burlington secured the O'Neill sheri
line rendo It certain that the line Is
to be extended to connect with the
Alliance line and that a large volume
of trallic will be diverted o\er whal
will be an important Hue. Unlike
many O'Neill people however I do not
look for the extension to be made until
next year.
Crops Look Fine.
"The message from Holt county
just now is a happy one. We have
had plenty of rain around O'Neill but
not too much. What winter wheat
was planted is doing well , the small
grain generaly Is In splendid condi
tion and the corn is as far advanced
as In any part of the state. "
Mr. Harrington will attend the Den
ver convention although he is not a
delegate. He was elected a delegate
to the national populist convention
which met at St. Louis but declined
to attend , forseelng the drift of the
St. Ixmis gathering.

Are Paid Tributes.
Public appreciation of the offer of
John Koonlgstoln and N. A. Rainbolt ,
In each giving twenty-five feet of val
uable property to the city for use as

those two pioneer residents of the
city for their generous donation to
so worthy n cause and for their timely
act In making the offer before the
library had been lost , thus extricating
the project from n situation that wns
extremely serious.
The liberal public spirited gift has
been much the topic of conversation
about town , and has brought relief to
the public mind In solving a problem
whose solution \ of such vital Im

Mrs. Hetty Green Ents Hash In Cnfe
With Shop Girls.
New York , June J I' , . Hetty Green
America's richest woman , was seen
yesterday coming out of a moderately-
priced restaurant on Park Row , after
having partaken of a Uo-cent meal
Not having the proper change In her
handbag to pay for her dinner , she
drew the quarter from her shoo. Sev
eral customers grinned broadly as she
selected the coin.
Each evening finds the socially am
bitious woman ol millions In one of
the beautiful dining rooms of the big
new hotel surrounded by the wealthy
who go to make up representative
Xew York.
Sitting beneath the glowing lights
of huge chandeliers , she chats merrily
with her daughter Sylvia , and oca-
sloually ( with her the future
which the mother hopes she will some
day find In society , but the noonday
finds the richest woman in the white
facaded Park Row restaurant which
draws Its clientele from the workshops
and the factories.
Hetty Green started her meal with
a plate of steamed hash costing 15
cents. When she finished this she
ordered a cup of tea for 5 cents and
then n piece of coeoanut pie , making
the total cost of the meal 2. > cents ,
or perhaps 5 or 10 cents less than that
spent by the average quick lunch cus
The little old woman was dressed
neatly in somber black. On her right
wrist she carried a large handbag , but.
In this she did not carry her money ,
for when she made ready to pay for
her meal she sent her right hand Into
her right shoe and extracted the pro
per change.
The richest woman took perhaps
thirty minutes for her meal. At its
conclusion she stepped up to the cash
ier's desk , paid her check and then
walked briskly to Chambers street ,
turning to the right In the direction
of the great Chemical National bank.

It will take some time to repair
the bridge. In the meantime people
living east of the city will bu con
siderably Inconvenienced , since tha
