Bank Robbery Trial Monday.
The Iladar bank robbery trial will
occupy dlHtrlet court In special ses
slon at Pierce next week.
Harry Joyce and James Morrison ,
the two alleged bandits who are ac
cused of having blown open the vault
of the "bank at Titular last January ,
scouring about $1,943 , have been In
Jail Btnoo shortly after the robbery ,
first at Sioux City and for the past
month at Pierce , awaiting tr'al.
The two alleged robbers nut up a
fierce fight In the courts of Iowa In
an effort to prevent being brought
back to Nebraska. They lost In the
Buprcme court of Iowa , and wore fin
ally brought back to Pierce.
An attempted Jail delivery has been
feared and special guards have
watched the Pierce county Jail every
night since the arrival of the prison
ers , who are booked by the Pierce
county authorities as desperate men.
It will be shown at the trial that
these two men were In Norfolk prior
to the robbery at Iladar , having taken
lodging at the Norfolk House. It will
bo shown that one of them bought
a knlfo at a local hardware store , and
testimony will bo Introduced to prove
that this was the same knife which
was found lying In the Hadar vault
after the bank had been dynamited.
Testimony will be Introduced to
prove that one of the men was at
Hadar 'a few days before the robbery ;
that ho went Into the bank and bought
a draft for $2 , which he later cashed
at the railroad eating house at Nor
That the Sioux City authorities re
gard the two prisoners as desperate
mAIs Indicated by the fact that In
marching the men from the Jail to
the court house , the prisoners were
handcuffed together and guarded by
a number of detectives.
Judge Welch will preside at the
Ten-Inch Snow on the Level.
A blanket of snow from eight to ten
Inches deep on the level covers all of
Nebraska , southern South Dakota , the
Black Hills and northern Wyoming
It Is the heaviest snowfall' for this
early In the winter since October ,
1898 , Just eleven years ago.
At Norfolk the snowfall was eight
Inches , Increasing to ten at Long Pine
and Dallas , northwest of hero. The
snowfall was not quite so heavy west
of Long Pine to the Hills. A heavy
snow Is reported all along the Albion
"branch of the Northwestern , and allover
-over the south PlaUe country.
All trains running in and out of
Norfolk wore delayed by the storm.
Train No. 2 on the Northwestern from
the west , scheduled here at C In the

late , and an extra No. 2 was made up
and run out of Norfolk In the morn-
Ing.Train No. C , the noon eastbound

snow to cover the ground.
Gets Gold Eagle In Trap.
A golden eagle was caught In a mink
trap by Robert Dathko yesterday In
a peculiar manner. The day before
a crow had got Into the trap and the
eagle , swooping down , had eaten the
crow. Next day the eagle returned
for more crow and got caught. Dath
ko has the big bird chained at his
homo In Edgcwator. The eagle was
caught on the Ed Wilkinson farm.
WHAT BROWN COUNTY DOES.
Sand Hitlers Raising Seed for Eastern
Drown County Democrat : If It Is
true , and It probably Is , that half the
world doesn't know how the other half
lives , then perhaps that would apply
to Drown county. And It does to
this extent that not half the people
of Drown county realize how much
territory I there Is In It , and what the
people I do for a living In different
parts 1 of It.
The Democrat correspondent is pret
ty familiar with the county tit large ,
and especially the southern end , wheioj
the Germans of German valley have
made their fertile farms out of white
sand ; where the ranchmen used to
think they were stronger than fate ,
and found they were not ; and whore ,
In common with southern Cherry
county and others of the sandhill belt ,
the first surveyors thought they know
more than Providence , that there
would be no settlers , and therefore
drew their pay and marked no corn
ers. But BomtSforn Brown was re-sur
veyed some time ago ; everybody
could locate ; and It would surprise
some of the natives along the railroad
to know what a large , intelligent and
thrifty population southern Drown
Wo wrote sometime since about the
baled liay houses ; now there Is a new
thing In the way of an occupation
that has Invaded the county of which
wo wish to speak. It Is the raising
of seed for the seed houses. The sand
hill country raises superb vegetables
and the business of seed growing bids
fair to spread out In all directions and
become ono of Drown county's staples.
This year about ten or a dozen men
down In Goose creek end of the county
raised vegetables for seed by the num
ber of acres at a clip. Ono man ,
Parks , grew twenty-two acres of seed ,
and Otto Strand twenty. Watermel
ons , muskmclons , squash , pumpkins
and cucumbers predominate. The
seed yields well and Is of line quality ,
and Is raised on contract for various
Perhaps some of the methods of
thrashing and drying the seed maybe
bo of Interest to all. Some of the
growers bought a seed thrasher , which
separated melon and cucumber seed
In good shape. One day three teams
gathered and put through the ma
chine forty big loads of1 water melons.
The seed Is dried In frames holding
about a bushel or two each , which is
quite a particular process ; then when
thoroughly dry is sacked and shipped
In common two-bushel sacks. This
warm sunny fall has been an excellent
one for the outdoor drying of seed.
Pumklns and squash , however , are
too dry to thrash well In the machine ,
so most of them are separated by
hand. We watched ono man as he
did It. The process varies slightly
with different varieties , but his was
as follows : He cut the squashes In
two with a corn knlfo ; then , sitting
straddle of a box , Jammed the half
of n squash down on a nail while he
raked out the pulp with a big spoon.
When he had a lot of pulp ahead he
put some In a barrel with several
buckets of water , and churned the
mass with a garden rake until the
seeds and pulp separated , .when he
raked the pulp out and spr ad the
seed in a drying frame.
The residue of the vegetables , es
pecially of the pumpkins and squashes ,
Is valuable for feed stock. Altogether ,
Mr. Fellow Kinkalder of Brown coun
ty , the seed Industry looks good on
Its surface. Better Investigate It.
Maybe our people have struck a new
Council Talks of the Paving.
Preliminary plans for the paving
of Norfolk avenue next spring were
discussed at last night's meeting of
the city council. The council decided
to have the city attorney go Into the
matter of how to legally require all
property owners along the avenue to '
build connections from the new Nor
folk avenue main sewer to the curb ,
In order to do away with tearing up 1
the pavement after It Is once down.
It Is the desire of the council that
these connections be all made this

Blacksmiths Form Combine.
Norfolk blacksmiths , who are mem
bers of the Nebraska Blacksmiths' as
sociation , met at the shop of August
Pasewalk last night and discussed the
Norfolk blacksmith situation , which
they say Is becoming alarming , owing
to the fact that many creditors fall
to pay their accounts for horse shoo
ing and general repair work. After a
lively discussion the following resolu
tions were passed :
We , the undersigned blacksmiths of
Norfolk , Neb. , do hereby agree to the
That we will charge the prices for
horse shoeing adopted by the Nebras
ka Blacksmiths' association , and that
wo hereby agree that wo will do no
work for anybody known to us owing
any other blacksmith for over sixty
days ; that wo will notify all other
blacksmiths In Norfolk each month of
any dead beats on our books. To all
of the above I agree.

Ernest Fisher Stock Company.
The Ernest Fisher stock company
opened a week's engagement at the
Auditorium and made good. Though
the company plays at popular prices ,
It Is an exceptionally strong stock or
ganization and the Initial play , "The
Heir to the Hoorah , " a four-act com
edy by Paul Armstrong , was fully the
equal of many high class shows that
get $1 prices. Every moment of the
play , which Is a Delicious comedy , was
enjoyable and every member of the
company proved to bo clever.
The Fisher stock comppny will bo
at the Auditorium for the entire week ,
and the Initial bill justifies the fore
cast that standing room will bo at a
premium every night of their engage
ment. It has been two years since
Norfolk had a high class stock company -
pany for a week's engagement , the
Woodwards , and the ono playing at
the Auditorium this week has even
that popular troupe lashed to the mast.
Mr. Fisher In the leading role was
the finished actor and he won friends
in Norfolk. Charles C. Burnham , In
the role of the brother , was exceed
ingly clever in his portrayal of the
droll western miner and frontiersman ,
and the audience fell In love with him.
Harry La Cour as "Kelly" was both
mighty good looking and a mighty
pleasing player. Despite the fact that
he was suffering from a severe cold ,
Mr. La Cour was perfect In the part
and his graceful ease gave his work
a human genuineness that appealed
strongly to the audience. Miss Myrtle
Gayetty is a superior leading lady , and
Ben McQuarrie , as "Bud Young , " made
a decided hit. T. Charles Shipley was
all that could be desired as the im
ported butler and Ted Newman was
an all-right villain. Joe Lawllss and
Charles Elchnmn as cowboys were
"there and over , " and Miss Adamson ,
Miss O'Reilly and Miss Farnsworth
were highly acceptable.
Tonight the company presents
"Charley's Aunt , " from the pen of
Frohman , and , one of the funniest
plays ever written in any language.
This comedy had a longer continuous
run in New York and London than
any play ever presented.
BLIZZARD AT HEAD OF LAKES.
Heavy Gale with Snow In It Reaches
Lake Superlo at Midnight.
Duluth , Minn. , Nov. 1C. At midnight
a blizzard struck the head of the lakes
district , the wind at times assuming
the proportions of a gale , and the
snow lying three Inches deep In places.
Lake Superior Is tumbling In a way to
prohibit safe navigation and It Is "be
lieved few boats will leave the Duluth-

The 4-months-old baby of Mr. and
Mrs. Fred Barneke , living at 313 j
Braasch avenue , may grow lip to be a
great actor. Anyway , the child has
begun Its stage career early In life.
The Barneko baby was "The Heir to
the Hoorah , " In the Ernest Fisher
stock company's play of that name
last night. The child was brought out [
on the stage In the arms of Mr. Fisher
and held up to the admiring gaze of
his miner friends in the play. Of

minor. Itself , so the part was not Il
The baby was "good" for a few min

baby in the play is supposed to be but
a few days old.
The babe's parents sat In the par ,
quet till the baby's cue came. Then
they enjoyed the show afterward.
They live just a few steps from the j
Auditorium. The father Is a black
smith in ihe shop of August Pasewalk.
Company D Is Inspected.
Major E. if. Phelps , assistant inspector
specter general , made the annual in
spection of Norfolk company D last
evening at the armory. After tne In
spection Major Phelps stated that he
seldom made special mention of any
company of the militia which he in
spected , but Norfolk's company was
can | exception and he highly praised 1
company D upon their fine showing.
"I do not Intend to say that the Ne
braska National Guard is the poorest
in the country , " said Major Phelps ,
"but In fact I consider that It does
r'iank ' In among the best in the western
' states , but It can easily bo Improved.
I The state legislature pays It less than
the government pays , where other
states usually get most of their money
from the legislature. I am much
pleased with the showing the officers
and enlisted men of company D have 3
made and hope they will continue In l
their endeavors to make It one of the 5
best companies In the state. "
Major Phelps Tuesday was busy ,1
overhauling the quartermaster sup
plies and making notes for the neces
sary supplies here. The blue uniform
will eventually bo done away with and j
the men will have suits of olive drab ,
khaki. The blue blouses will also
soon disappear , making way for the
khaki or olive drab shirts.
Major Phelps highly praised the of
ficers of this company and believes
with their aid the local company will 1
soon bo one of the top notchors. Af
ter the men were dismissed from In
spection they were marched to C. II.
Pllger's bakery , where a banquet was
held , at which Captain Anderson pre
sided. Speeches were made by Major
Phelps , who gave his experience as ri
national guardsman , discussed the
benefit to the public , and gave advice
to the men.
"Tho national guardsmen are not
enemies of the union men , " said Major
Phelps , "In fact they are friends of
the union men. The Idea that the
national guards are protectors of
'scabs' Is a mistake. When a strike
Is called or any disorder occurs they
are called out to protect property and

Victor maintained the nerve which
had characterized him all through his
Imprisonment until the last. He slop
soundly all night long and had to bo

hearty meal. As he started to mount
the stops leading to the gallows ho

Norfolk , Neb. , Nov. 17. Editor
News : Jeremiah Long , B. A. , poet ,
latriot and philosopher , was paying
i farewell visit to the city prior to his
emoval to what he called the mael
strom of hades on earth Chicago.
Mr. Long came to Madison county
with the grasshoppers to recruit the
resbyterlan church at Madison. He
came from Tekamah , Neb. , where he
tad built up In two years two churches
when Omaha was only beginning to
get establlhcd on the map. At that
.line the country around Hastings was
icing surveyed and It was the inten-
Jon of Mr. Long to take his family
there and get a homestead , but the
Presbytery asked him to try and put
inlmntloii into the Madison church
first. The church extension society
md furnished funds for a church and
a devoted member In the east had
paid Mr. Long a salary of $800 for a
year's work , but those who received
the funds delayed building a church
and Mr. Long refused to serve them
longer and retired to a homestead near
Pilot Knob , where he has resided con
tinuously since. Recently he sold his
liome and with his wife will make his
home with a daughter In Chicago.
Jeremiah Long was born in Ireland
seventy-one years ago. He is a grad
uate of Hanover college and MacCor-
mick Theological university. Al
though not a citizen of the United
States at the opening of the civil war ,
he enlisted in the army and served to
the close of the war and was a mem
her of Sherman's regiment and fol
lowed that Intrepid general in his

In a work on American poets and
jwetry several of Mr. Long's poems

kindly with him and In the evening ol
life be replete with happiness and
peace. J. H. Mackay.
NO MORE WOMEN.
Inspector Would Bar Female Society
Militia Paid for by State.
Lincoln , Nov. 17. If Inspector Gen'
era ! Fetterman has his way about It
women will be barred from the an
nual encampments of the Nebraska
National guard hereafter save during
a day or two near the close of the
outing. In his report to his chief the
general severely arraigns the growing
practice of officers quartering on the
camp , at the expense of the state for
the ten-day encampment each year a
bevy of female friends'relatives anc
others. Ho says that the state pays
the expenses of the annual encamp
ment out of a desire to give the of
licers and men experience in actua
military camp life , and that it is not
an appropriation either for an outlnt
for the feminine frieids of the guards
men or for a study in social nmenl
General Fetterman complains that
the officers , by reason of the enter
tainment of their wives and other wo
men friends , are compelled to assume
so many social diuies that they have
no time left to attend to their mill
tary duties. He also recommends that
the camp bo located remote from an >
city , the practice heretofore being to
exploit it for the financial benefit o
the fortunate town. Adjutant Genera
Hartigan Intimates that he will np
prove the recommendation relating to
barring out of women.

days over $4,000 worth of overshoes ,
alone , not counting rubbers , were sold
by Norfolk shoe dealers. Owing to
the delay of some of the trains one
merchant says he is losing sales every
minute , owing to the fact that he has
sold his entire stock of overshoes and
Norfolk firemen who are making col
lections for their fair booths , which
will be a feature nt the fair at the
skating rink November 23 , are making
15001 ! . One Norfolk firm has contrib
uted a ton of coal , another shoes.
Lamps and many boxes of cigars are
among the number which will be sold.
A meeting of the firemen is called
for Monday , November 22 , when the
arrangements for the next day's fair
will be made complete.
One of the hardest games of foot
ball ever played on the local gridiron
will be contested Saturday afternoon
when the game b jtween Nellgh and
Norfolk Is scheduled to bo played.
Nellgh defeated Norfolk early in the
season , but since then Norfolk has
gained strength and experience and a
lively tussle is expected. The Nor
folk men are confident of making a
better showing against the Nellgh
boys next Saturday than they did In
their first game with them. That there
are less accidents In a football game
than any other athletic sport , or auto-
mobillng , is argued by a prominent
football enthusiast of Norfolk , who be
lieves that the fatalities In the recent
football games In the east wore given
undue prominence as compared with
fatahtles in of'ier sports , and that the
accidents on the gridiron in the east
will not have any effect on football
hero whatever. .
A letter has been received hero by
C. E. Burnham from F. E , Nlcoles , su
perintendent of the Nebraska division
of the C. , St. P. , M. & O. railroad , In
which ho says many complaints from
his conductors have reached him In
the Norfolk avenue switching matter.
Mr. Nlcoles says that Norfolk citizens
are said to stand at the crossing with
watch in hand and time the freights
and switch crows as thedo switching
on Norfolk avenue. Mr. Nlcoles also
says his train crows , when switching
on the Gund or Jotter brewery tracks ,
have been threatened with arrest a
number of times. A warrant for the
arrefet of a Union Pacific train crow ,
according to Mr. Nlcoles , Is supposed
to be out. This , however , Is not true.
After an Investigation Mayor Friday
finds that the " "
car "kicking" incident
on Norfolk avenue some days ago was
due to an accident and the train crow
are not held responsible and will not
bo arrested. While slowing down over
Main street a coupling pin hod broken
which caused one of the cars to go
across the street alono. When the
engineer whistled for brakes a brakeman -
man on the lone car was accidentally
thrown to the ground. Many witnesses -

ion Pacific agent , and the accused
train crew , wore questioned by the

approval of practically all the tax
