Numerous theories have been ad

Notice has been received at th

Some belief Is expressed here tin
the team and buggy which was foun

city by only one of the robbers an
that the other two made their way 1
Sioux City where they could easll

that they bo allowed to act In cc

lleve they can be of great help to the
This committee reported favorably
on the use of vitrified brick as a pav
ing material. Many samples of brick
were presented to the council last
City Engineer Tracy was present at
ho meeting and there seems no doubt
ut that ho will have his hands full of
vork for. some llmo to come. Ho was
otllled to begin at once to make an
stlmato of the cost of paving and to
raw plans and specifications for pav-
ng district No. 1. Ho also was In
truded to establish a grade for the
Plan New Water Districts.
Councilman Fuesler asked that the
jiiglneor be requested to draw plans
ind specifications for three water ills-
rlcts , one south on Sixth street , Park
i venue to Paso walk to Seventh street ;
mo South Fifth street , Pasowalk to
Jrovo to Fourth street , and another
on Twelfth street to Hayes. There
VIIB no second to his motion and the
natter was laid on the table until the
text mooting. There seems , however ,
i favorable chance that the now water
listrlcts will be opened soon.
Regarding Lead Pipe.
J. W. Ransom asked the city conn-
11 what action should be taken by
n-operty owners toward taking of the
onnections made with the now sower.
I'ho now ordinance calls for all lead
ilpu connections for water connection ,
iwlng to the fact that the life of the
stool pipe Is but about live or six
years. Owing to the fact that the or
dinance roads "hereafter , " it was be
lieved by the council that the prop
erty owners would have to take tholr
own chances of taking up pipe already-
Standard Price for Plumbers.
An established price for plumbers'
work of making water and sewer con
nections on Norfolk avenue will also
be made In a now ordinance which
will bo drawn up at a future meeting
of the council. J. Dignan , a local
plumber , reports that property own
ers on the south side of Norfolk av
enue are protesting against paying
more for making water connections
than thobo on the north side of the
street. The water main lies on the
north side of the street and naturally
the length of the pipe adds to the ex
pense of the south slders. An arbi
trary rate will be charged , which is
expected to moot with satisfaction of
owners on both sides of the street.
To Repair Junction Jail.
The public works committee was
instructed to have the old jail at the
Junction repaired. This little struc
ture , It Is said , will be a great help to
the Junction police , who , when mak
ing an arrest now have to walk prls
oners to the city or hire a cab to coiv
vey them here.

Drinking Cup Only Memory.
When the Norfolk public schools
pened up Monday morning after the
Caster vacation , the question on t he
ps of every student and many of the
oachers was , "Where are all the
rlnklng cups which were here when
chool adjourned for the vacation ? "
Not a single drinking cup remains
i any of the schools of the city , and
ho habit of drinking from the new
unitary drinking fountains which
vero Installed In all the schools by
lumbers under the direction of Su-
erlutonde'nt F. M. Hunter during the
acatlon period , will have to grow.
Superintendent Hunter started the
lovemont of Installing the now drink-
ng fountains some months ago when
patent drinking fountain was sent
ere and Installed at the high school
ulldlng on approval. After some
loiitlm of use , It was thought by the
chool board the drinking fountain was
, vhat Norfolk schools needed , but just
, vlmt kind had not yet been decided.
. Hunter , however , relieved the sii-
latlon with a little patent of his own ,
ind plumbers , under his direction , con-
erted the regular hydrants , whose
aucets wore turned upside down , Into
limitary drinking fountains at a very
Ittle expense to the school district.
In Massachusetts , Kansas and a few
: > ther states the law forbids the use of
he common drinking cups , such as
lave been used in Norfolk , and the
ise of the drinking fountains has been
enforced. These fountains arc saiii-
ary and are used to prevent the
spreading of disease which the drink-
ng cups are known to carry.

E. Story of the Election.
It was a disagreeable election dn
00 , but for all that a mighty big vote w ,
or- cast , considering the fact that the
rth was no mayor to elect.

ho at winning out by capturing a ro-elc
rs. tlon in the First , and Kanffmai
Ur. proved conclusively that a man ci
the "come back. " His winning arm w ,
He as strong as of yore.
It was evident from the vote that
the community was satisfied with the
work of A. Deguei and S. ( J. Dean on
tlu- board of education. The theory |
that the board Is already big enough ,
helped to defeat ' .ho proposition to ,
