rived on the scene ho found the eight-
weeks-old baby of the couple lying on
the ground several yards from where

Tragic Death of Little Girl.
Clcarwator , Neb. , April 9. Special
to The News : This community was
shocked last evening to hear of the
tragic death of little Emmet Mncauloy ,
the thirteen-year-old son of B. M.
Mncauloy , a merchant of this place ,
who lives on a farm Just north and at
the edge of town. Some time between
G and 7 o'clock llttlo Emmet mounted
a horse'and rode into the cornfield af
ter the cows. Soon afterward the
horse cairie homo without Its rider
and .when found , a , few minutes later
toy o'fhor members of the family the
little follow was lying dead with the
blood trickling from his ears. v
Ho was carried to the house and Dr.
Hall Immediately summoned. Ho
found the neck to bo dislocated and
that death must have been almost In-
BtnntaneouB. , Ho said It was evident
there must have been some terrible
shock or concussion , and while no one
witnessed the accident It Is supposed
that he was tin own over the horse's
neck and alighted on the back of his
head dislocating the nock. The horse
might have stumbled , hut as the only
mark found on the body Is a slight
abrasion on the chin It Is not prob
able that the horse fell on him or
stepped on him.
Little Emmet's tragic death comoa
as a sad and cruel blow to the family
and the members of the community
who knew him. Ho wa well liked
and popular with his playmates and
one of the brightest pupils In the
, To Cut Stockings Tax.
Washington , April 9. It now Is
generally conceded that there Is every
likelihood of a restointlon of the Ding-
loy rates on women's gloves and hos
iery by the committee on finance in
The last ray of hope for any change
In the house has gene glimmering.
There was a time during this after
noon when the advocates of reduced
schedules thought a coup similar to
that worked In overruling of the Stan
dard Oil program might ho put
through , but according to the terms
of the rule brought In on Monday no
amendment to the glove and hosiery
paragraphs can bo permitted until the
bill Is read In the house , and of course
that rending will bo postponed suf
ficiently to preclude any possibility of
ever reaching the paragraphs men
Representatives of largo Importing
firms who have come to Washington
to urge the retention of the Dlnglcy
schedules on gloves and hosiery went
about the capital today under the wing
of Representative FOBS. Although
they received short shrift at the hands
of Chairman Payne and but little be
yond a lecture from Representative
.Uout'ell , a member of the ways and
means committee , they gathered con
siderable encouragement from other
sources. While they have but little to
say concerning their matter tonight , it
is known that they feel absolutely cer
tain the senate will restore tlio , Ding-
Pierce Made Greatest Gain.
Pierce county gathered In pretty
nearly all the attendance honors nt
last week's convention of the Norti.
Nebraska Teachers' association. Each
year a comparative statement of the
attendance Is given. This year's state
ment , which Is today made public ,
shows that Pierce county not only had
the largest attendance of any of the
outside counties but also registered the
greatest percentage of increase.
Madison county comes first In the
list with 132 teachers. These figures
have been swelled somewhat by the
fact that all the ministers and musi
cians who had places on the program
were admitted to the meetings and
credited to Madison county.
Pierce sent eighty-six representa
tives here , all but two of whom were
actual teachers In the county. Wayne
county was second among the outside
counties with forty teachers , about 25
per cent of whom were from Wayne
This Year's Rank.
The following table shows the at
tendance at this year's convention
from counties having"more than three
teacliers here , the first column repre
sent the attendance here , the second

For Plorco county's remarkable
showing credit Is of course largely duo
to County Supt. Frank Pllgor and the
loyal support given him by his teach
ers and school officers generally. The
prediction of a largely Increased at
tendance this year was based In con
siderable part on the advance of
Pierce county reports made by Mr.
To Frank Pllger'a energy and to his
ability as an organizer , the conven
tions of the last few years have owed
no little of their success. This year
Mr. Pllger Is succeeded by a now
treasurer but it is fortunate for the
big annual convention that ho has a
successor in W _ E , Miller of Hurting-
ton , well qualUlQti tq take up the
work. Mn Miller/ who Js .qqunty su-
pcrutondont of Qortur county , Is a.
popular school man and will bo an

the convention among the teachers In
the northeast part of the district.
The enrollment of teachers at this
year's convention reached 494 accord
ing to the final figures.

provides for the placing of county

bill , Is. to allow the banks In which
county funds are deposited , to deposit

Among the injured Is William Blatt
of Norfolk , Neb.
"Billy" Blatt , for years operator of
a gambling house and saloon In Nor
folk , Is one of the best known men of
the "fraternity" in this territory. He
operated at Bonesteel for a time. His
ather died In Norfolk a few weeks

Extension Out of Dallas ?
The Immediate extension of the
Northwestern railroad from Dallas , S.
X , on to the Black Hills Is announced
n the current Issues of the two Greg
ory papers and two or , three other
losebud papers , the newspapers has-
ng their statements on the arrival at
Dallas last week of a Northwestern
surveying crew from Chicago. These
papers state that the chief of the
crew admitted that the surveyors
vere sent out to make the permanent
survey for the extension to the hills ,
t is declared that the work will be
gin Monday and that the direction to
be taken by the crew Is anxiously
awaited as It is stated that there are
hree surveyed routes west of Dallas.
At the Norfolk Northwestern head
quarters knowledge of the presence of
he surveyors In Dallas was denied ,
t was stated that a Northwestern sur
veying crew Is at work on the Bone-
teel line setting out stakes for bal-
astlng the road. This crew , however ,
las not been beyond Bonesleel as the
vork of ballasting Is not to be car-
led on past that town.
While all knowledge of any con-
etnplated extension at this time is
disclaimed here , it Is not denied that
a force of surveyors from the Chicago
office might be at work.
While several surveys made in the
> ast have not been connected with an
mm'ediato extension of the road , it
s believed that a permanent survey
it this time would forecast railroad
building in the near future. In ex-
ending its line from Dallas the North ,
vastern will connect with its Pierre-
tapid City extension. This extension
s sure to come within the next few
years. Whether It comes this year or
next means much to the rival titles
of Gregory and Dallas , now the tor-
nlnal point , and to the homesteader
and the Tripp county townslte pro-1
Some people believe that the North
western extension out of. Dallas will
Lo ) built just as soon as there is a
crop to move In Trlpp county but that
there will bo no considerable crop to
move this year. In this connection
the following account ofthe recent
visit of Vice President Gardner to the
Rosebud , taken from the Gregory Ad
vocate , fs of Interest :
"Before the officials arrived they
telegraphed Joy M. ' Hackler to meet
them at the depot and In matters gone
over they asked particularly In regard
to Ills opinion as to the class of home
slenders who would settle Trlpp coun
ty , number that woujd fllo and whothoi
or not Trlpp county would develop ni
rapidly as did this country , Th <
rapidity with which tills country developed
voloped surprised oven the rallroa <
company and they found thomsolvci
wholly unnblo to move the scconi
year's crop. It is very evident that
they do not Intend to bo caught this
way again and are making every effort
to handle the Immense amount of
business that will come from Trlpp
county. Another reason for the road
extending so soon is that the Burling
ton also has Its eyn on Trlpp _ county
and it is reported that a large force
of surveyors have been at work In
the county for the past week. "
