owns the franchise of a water power

turned from Chicago accompanied by
Mr. Collins , an engineer , who on viewIng -
Ing the power site started across coun
try with Mr. Cornoli looking for a' ' 1
feasible route over paying territory for
an Interurban railroad with Valentine
as initial point. They visited Sparks , '
Norden , Springview , Burton , Mills , ,
Jamison , Naper and Butte near which ,
place It is proposed forming a junction
with the Northwestern railroad. Mr.
Cornell returned home last night via
Norfolk. Mr. Collins proceeding on to
Chicago. They found a large and pro
ductive territory to draw from , the
people hungry for a road , and Mr.
Collins feels sanguine that a third rail ,
interurban water power electric road
can be made profitable. In all prob
ability a company will be formed
shortly for that purpose.
Take Long Shot at Saloons.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , March 30. Spe
cial to The News : An important fea
ture of the state liquor license law
will be determined as the result of In
junction proceedings which have just
been Instituted and in which the mem
bers of the town board of Goodwin
township , Deuel county , are the de
fendants. The injunction restrains
the board from issuing a liquor
license , the application for the Injunction - ,
junction being based upon unusual i
grounds. Those who secured the re
straining order contend that at the
recent annual election a majority of
the voters of the township , counting
all those who voted and those who
did not vote at the recent election ,
did not vote favorably to the Issurance
of licenses for saloons , although a
majority of those who did vote de
clared themselves In favor of such
licenses being issued by the township.
Those who secured the restraining
order Intimate that If the state cir
cuit court does not take this view of
the matter , an appeal will be taken to
the state supreme court. On the face
of it there would appear to bo little
doubt that license had carried and
that those who did not vote upon the
proposition should not be taken Into
consideration , but it Is a question
which has never been determined by
the state supreme court and the anti-
saloon people appear anxious to carry
a test case to that court. Beresford
had a somewhat similar case last
year , but It was adjusted before It
had reached the state supreme court.

really her fault that she was penni
"I am to blame , " she said. "My
husband had sent inn enough money
and would have cabled me more if I
had asked him. But I thought I had

Editor Cotton of the Ainsworth Star-
Journal Tells of Norfolk Visit.
John M. Cotton in the Ainsworth
Star-Journal : The ( rip down to Nor
folk a week ago was a very pleasant
one to the writer of these paragraphs.
It has always been a pleasure to visit
Norfolk , probably the best town in
America of its size under 5,000 in
habitants. They are a good bunch ,
those Norfolk citizens , and they not
only know how to push their town to
tjie front , but to welcome the stranger
within their gates and make him feel
like he was at home.
Among the old time friends whose
acquaintance was renewed on that oc
casion were the following :
I Postmaster John R. Hays , who , when
I county superintendent of Storey coun
ty , Iowa , gave the writer his first
' teacher's certificate. John R. has ali -
i ways had a word of cheer for the am
bitious boy or girl and ho keeps up
that work to this day.
N. A. Rainbolt , a retired capitalist of
Norfolk , whom the writer has known
since a little boy back at Ames ,
Iowa. Mr. Rainbolt goes fishing now
when he feels the Impulse to do some
great thing , where formerly he used
to spend the time In business. Ho Is
enjoying pretty good health now as a
result of this change in Ills manner of
Jim Stltt , a prince among the Ne
braska architects , is still the same
Jim Stltt , and Is doing even better
work in Ills line than he used to do ,
Knox Tipple , who , some dozen years
ago , used to run the Pacific hotel then
the best house In northern Nebraska.
If there Is a man any where who knows
better how to run a hotel than Knox
Tipple did then , the writer would like
to see him and Knox is a bachelor at
that. He Is boarding at the Oxnard
now and enjoying life.
Dr. Francis A. Bryant , who wrote
that masterful story of Aztec life A
Romance of Two Lives Is still at Nor
folk folowlng his profession.
Dr. Alexander Bear stately and
dlgnlllod as ever , and enjoying a flue
practice. The writer's acquaintance
with Dr. Bear dates back to ( he tlmu
when ho was Senator Bear In 1875.
M. D. Tyler and Hurt Mapes , two as
good lawyers as Nebraska holds with
in her borders both injoylng a line
W. II. Weeks and wife , the now pub
lishers of the Norfolk Press both
first class and up to date newspaper
people. The writer knew Weeks years
ago when he published the Scrlbner
The writer did not got to see the
Huso of Tlio News , but saw the boys ,
and they are making good every day
In the year getting out the best dally
paper in a town of that size that can
bo found any where on earth. Nor
did ho got to see Dr. Markay , a line
physician , and one of the ablest
writers In Nebraska. If Dr. Mackay
would devote his attention to litera
ture ho might rival Dr. S. Wlcr Mitchell
and Dr. Woods Hutchlnson ,
H. M. Bushnoll of the Lincoln Trade
Review , president of tlio association ,
an old time friend of the writer. Bush
Is accumulating a gray moustache and
some gray hairs on tlio back of tils
head , while the bald spot on top grows
larger and larger , but he is the same
big hearted Bush as of days gone by.
There are many more but this list
is as long as our space will permit.
Feared to Put on Trousers.
New York , March 30. The jury sit
ting in the suit of Mrs. A. E. Herman ,
costumer , against Mrs. Louise Carter
Paine , actress , for the price of certain
costumes for the actress" productions ,
"La Tosca" and "Camllle , " gave its
undivided attention to some expert
testimony as to "fits" today.
The export in question is Phyllis La-
Fond , who Is to play the part of the
boy In "La Tosca. " She said the coat
and waistcoat of the costume were not
just what they should bo , but that was
not the principal trouble. To be frank ,
she finally let It be known that the
principal trouble was that the "pants"
were too tight , so snug , In fact , that
she was afraid to try to squeeze into
them lest something break.
Miss Blanchard , another member of
Mrs. Carter's company , showed how
she thought some of the costumes
ought to fit. One of the jurors did not
know what an empire gown was so
she illustrated by showing on herself
where the waist line came * in such a
Lad Killed by Brother.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , March 30. Spe
cial to The News : Particulars have
reached here of the accidental death
of Henry , the youngest son of Mr. and
Mrs. William Egger , who reside on
a farm in the southeastern portion of
Faulk county. The unfortunate boy
met death at the hands of his own
brother. Together with the brother
and a companion the dead boy was en
gaged in bunting ducks. A 22-calibre
rifle held in the hands of the brother
was prematurely discharged , the ball
striking the lad in the back of the
bead. He became unconscious and
remained in this condition until his
death about six hours later. The
brother has been nearly crazed by the
accident and the tragic death of his
little brother. A physician was on the
scene as promptly as possible but was
unable to save the life of the boy.
Jersey is liven Liberty of Rear Yard
at White House.
Washington , March 30. The Tafts
are keeping a cow. It Is a nice , paci
fic creature , with soft brown spots
as big as tubs scattered here and there
over a pelt which Is otherwise a fawn
color. Owing to the fact that Its
horns have been eliminated It is
warranted not to hook.
i'he Jersey animal showed up on
the White House lawn last week. She
had been purchased by Mrs. Taft that
the White House table might be sup
plied at all times with pure milk. Ex
plicit orders appear to have been ,
given that she may roam the rear ex- ]
pauses of the executive grounds at
will , cropping the luscious grass blades
as they appear. At night bossy oc
cupies one of the stalls in the White
House stables.
Richard Davldge , one of the stable
men , does the caretaklng and procures
the great jar of foamy rich milk
which is sent each night and morning
to the White House kitchen. Ho dons
a special white uniform while attend
ing to this process.
Near Drowning in Keya Paha.
Burton Independent : In attemptIng -
Ing to ford the Keya Paha river on his
way to Broxsburg , Peter Phillips ,
father-in-law of W. E. Boyd , of Burton ,
met with an accident that came near
proving fatal to him. When midway
of the stream the doubletrees broke ,
overturning tlio buggy , which floated
down stream , turning over and over
with the swlfe tide which was run
ning at that time. It was about twen
ty-five feet from tlio point of the ac
cident before Mr. Phillips could free
himself from the mix-up , when assis
tance came ho was pretty well used
up , and some time elapsed after reachIng -
Ing safety before ho was able to pro
ceed on his way.
Fremont Methodists Vote Down Easter
Millinery Exhibit.
Fremont Herald : Complimentary to
the men , who object to craning their
necks so as to look past a big , fluffy
hat to watch the minister while ho de
livers his sermon on Sunday mornings ,
the ladles of the Methodist church
have decreed that women shall not
wear such creations in church here
after. The action was taken at a
recent meeting of the general aid so
ciety. The motion was passed in the
face of a strong opposition that wanted
the matter deferred until after Easter
In order that the ban would not affect
'the ' wearing of the Easter bonnets.
I New Citizens Can't Vote.
Norfolk's newest residents , citizens
I of the territory recently annexed to
this city , ran not vote at the coming
city election. After looking up the
statutes and court opinions on the mat
ter Norfolk lawyers have agreed that
the statute requiring three month's
residence within the city limits before
a can take part In the city
election operates against the voters In
the new additions.
Democrats Take Matter Up.
Believing the matter to bo one of
Importance , the Democratic city cen
tral committee through Us chairman ,
Dr J. II. Mackay , has obtained a writ
ten opinion from former Senator Will-
lam V Allen of Madison , on the mat
ter. Senator Allen , In his opinion ,
which Is of some length , takes the
question up In detail , concluding as fol
lows : "I do not believe the words , 'tho
benefits of and bo subject to the ordi
nance and regulations of such village
or city' would glvo the right to vote
at this election. This is evidently a
legislative ommlsslon as there Is no
justice in preventing them from par
ticipating In the election. This section
constructed with other provisions of
the statute , which prescribe the length
of time a person shall have been a
resident of the municipality before be
ing entitled to vote , would , in my
Judgment , deprive these people from
the right of franchise at this time. "
Additions Are Democratic ,
While both parlies would gain ad
ditional strength from the new citi
zens' vote , the not gain , It Is believed ,
would be in favor of the Democrats as
the additions are counted as rather
strongly Democratic.

Drainage a Problem Now.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , March 31. Spec
ial to The News : In the old days in
South Dakota , when the rainfall was
not as well distributed as in tliase
later days , it was customary for farm
ers living in that part of the stats
which lies over the great artesian
basin to "club together" for the sfnk-
ing of artesian wells , this being done
to reduce the expense to any one In
dividual. The water secured from
these wells was necessary in some
parts ( A tlio state to produce crops.
Water from the wells was equally dis
tributed o\er the farms of those who
had contributed to the cost of the
wells by means of ditches.
In these modern days , so wonder
ful has been the change in South
Dakota , tlio farmers' thoughts arc not
turned to securing an artificial supply
of water to add to the regular rain
fall , but to getting rid of surplus sup
plies of water. The rainfall has been
so great during the past few seasons
in many parts of the state that much
valuable land has been flooded and
rendered worthless for the raising of
In some localities the counties have
constructed drainage ditches to carry
away the excess of water and reclaim
the flooded lands. In counties where
these drainage ditches have not yet
been constructed at county expense
the farmers themselves have to bear
the burden of draining their flooded
