Karle's clean-shaven features have

above all his paintings engrossed bis

"They Try to Kill Me. "
Insane Man From South Dakota Runs
Amuck In Norfolk.
Adolphus Mulash , claiming to be the
son of a wealthy townslto owner of
Konnebec , S. D. , entered the offices of
Judge Isaac Powers and Jack Koenlg-
stein Saturday afternoon exclaiming
"They're trying to murder mo and
I want an attorney. "
Believing the man was joking Judge
Powers motioned him to Mr. Koenlg-
stein's private ofllco saying that that
was the criminal attorney's olllce. To
Mr. Koenlgsteln Mulash confided that
ho had just come from Lamio from
whore two men followed him to Nor-
folk and wore about to kill him.
Thinking the man an escaped patient
from the hospital for Insane , he tele
phoned that Institution Immediately ,
but found that no patient had escaped
or was missing there. In the moan-
time the chief of police was notified
and later took him to the city Jail.
Mulash says that his father owns all
the townslto of Konneboc , S. D. , aim
requested Mr. Kocnlgstoin to wire
there so that some protection could bo
"Two weeks ago , " said Mulash , "I
went to Lamro from Konnoboc to
break horses. I slept In a barn there
and one night I heard men outside
conspiring against mo with throats of
lynching mo. I escaped on the stage ,
which took me to Dallas , where I
asked the marshal for protection. Ho
locked mo up In the Jail last night ,
but I heard two of the men outside and
1 believe they wore the men from
Lamro trying to kill me. The men
are here now and I wish you to protect -
tect me. 1 want the marshal to lock
mo up in a strong coll. " His last re
quest was granted.
Mulash believes two men are here
"trying to got him out of the .way , "
although upon questioning him It was
found that ho had no property or any
thing that would benefit anyone if ho
] was "put away. " The authorities hero
believe him an escaped patient of

A Genius in Knickerbockers.
Wild west scenes in a moving pic
ture show Inspired Harry Spindle , 13
years old , to go west and kill Indians.
Not having any money , Harry invented
a scheme to get it that stamps him as
a genius in knickerbockers and netted
him ? 100 in less than a week. He
would find a little girl on the street ,
tell her that her father had just been
elected president of a lodge and then
got the mother to give him money to
! inn to the florist's to get some flowers
for a surprise for father when ho came
home. Sometimes ho got the money
and sometimes he didn't , but he found
enough victims to net him $100 before

FOOTPADS CAME BACK.
Application of Word "Succor" Looked I'
, Upon as an Insult.
Omaha. May 9. Never again will
William S. Sheldon , member of the
, Omaha city council , attempt to frighten -
, en away footpads by yelling unless he
is positive of what he is saying.
A couple of night ago Mr. Sheldon
was going home from a late council
I meeting and when within a couple of
blocks of his home he was accosted by
a couple of men who thrust a revolver
I' ' into his face and commanded him to j'
throw up his hands.
I Instead of putting up his hands the
; councilman at the top of his voice
I'screamed ' , "Help ! Burglars ! Thieves ! "
One footpad started to run and Sliel-
don kept on screaming. Then the 3'
other started for the woods , and still j
Sheldon yelled , adding the words ,
"Help and Succor" to his cries.
As he gave vent to his alarm by cry-
ing "Succor" the footpads stopped and
! then returned , after which they went
' through liis pockets , taking his purse
I and watch , remarking to him that they
' intended to let him alone , but when
ho insulted them by calling them
'sucker" it was too much.
Mr. Latta's Letter.
Fremont Tribune : Congressman
Latta , in lieu of personal attendance ,
sent a voluminous letter to be read nt
a bourbon banquet held at Emerson.
It was a formal discharge of an offi
cial courtesy that was due to the ban
queters , but of course they knew ho
didn't write the letter. A good nianj
are familiar with his autograph let
ters and they know ho can neither
write nor spell that he cannot frame
the simplest epistle without violating
the rules of orthography and commit
ting hara-kiri on good old Lindley Mur
ray. There are many men in Wash
ington who make a living writing the
things for statesmen to palm off as
their own , and good old Undo Jim ,
who spent approximately $15,000 for
his election , has the dough to buy the
Built Line to the Mine.
Dr. Holden and A. N. McGlnnls have
Just returned from Lost Springs ,
Wyom. , where they went to Inspect
the Wyoming Northern railroad and
Rosin Coal mines , In which they and 1'
a number of other Norfolk citizens
are Interested. They arc more than
pleased with conditions as they found
them. The railroad Is almost ten
miles long , of standard gauge , and
ready for business. At the present
they have one standard freight engine
and enough other equipment for pros-
' out needs.
j The mine property consists of fiOO
I > acres coal lands , which Is covered
with plenty of timber for future needs.
In the mine a 1,100-foot tunnel has
been cut and several thousand tons of
coal taken out , and there is now In
sight between four and six million tons
of coal In the ( Irsl vein , and at a deptli
1 of ninety feet Is a second vein of about
the same thickness and covering the
entire fiOO acres. To handle the out
put a double track has boon built from
the mlno to the car loader or tipple ,
| which has a capacity of 3000 tons per
t day. Within the mine coal cutting
, machines have been Installed that will
, take out 1,200 tons of coal per day. A
, largo power house , machine shop , bath
I house , olllco building , boarding house
and bunk houses constitute the build
ings now completed. A large powder
house and a locomotive house will bo
built at once.
All machinery is operated by olec-
j trlclty. Coal Is hauled from the mine ,
screened , sorted and" loaded into cars
I by electricity. The mine , buildings
and grounds arc lighted by electricity ,
also. In fact , everything Is the best
and most modern money can buy.
Over two years ago a few cars of
coal wore shipped to bo tested out in
all kinds of stoves , furnaces and on-
| glues , and gave excellent satisfaction ,
but because of the great expense of
hauling by teams ten miles it was de
cided to place no more coal on the
market until a railroad could be built
to the mines. The company loaded
out its first car of coal over the new
road last Friday and have quite a
number of orders on hand to be filled
as fast as possible. The above will
surely bo good news to all those in
"Mothers' Day Observed.
Norfolk Florist Sold More Single Car
nations Than Ever Before.
"Mother's day ' was largely observed
in Norfolk. A local florist says he
never before sold so many single car
nations as for this one day.
To those who either forgot or did
not know of the custom was soon ex
plained the moaning of the many
white carnations and many men who
hadn't written a line to "mother" in
I many years , were soon busily engaged
in sending some affectionate word to
One Conversation which took place
j on Norfolk avenue shows how the cus
tom will become popular among those
who are away from home ,
i "What are you all wearing the white
( flowers for ? " asked a young man of
"Well , you chump , get next to your
self ! This is 'mother's1 day and if you
have a mother you think anything of
you ought to be wearing a white car-
i nation. You see i 's just to remember
| your mother that it's being worn.
I This is her day. I didn't know it eli -
J i ther until a friend told me of it. I
hadn't written to mother in many
years and I believe I'll go down to the
hotel and write her a line.
| "Well , that's all right , " replied the
I other man. "Where can I buy one of
those flowers ? It's the best thing I
ever heard of. I haven't sent a word
to my mother for a long while. I think
I'll be doing the same. So long. "
Last Week for Census.
This week will bring to a close one
of the most important events that Nor
folk lias known in ten years the tak
ing of the federal ceiibus. The count
being made at this time will stand for
| the next ten years as the figures show
ing Norfolk's population to the out
side world , and upon those figures de
pends dollars and cents to practically
every business interest and every
property holder in Norfolk.
Fear is expressed on all sides that
the count will not be complete that
there will bo residents who are missed
' by the enumerators. And for thisrea *
' son it is pointed out by Census Super-
' visor Hays of this district that the cit
Izens of the town should take an ac
tlve interest in hplplng to make the
count a complete one.
i It is urged that people who have not
I been counted , report the matter at
' once to the enumerators , either Ed
' Harter or H. G. Wiles , or report the
same to The News.
Those who have friends who have
not been counted , are urged to do the
Unless tliis Is done , Norfolk will
come a long way from the f.,000 mark.
Sioux City is complaining that her
enumeration has fallen 5,000 short of
the true count and the supervisor is
blaminp the Commercial club and
business men there for not having
taken a more active Interest in the
matter. Throughout the Pacific coast
country commercial clubs and the busl
ness men of every town are working
with all their energy to make the
count as big as possible. It's the big
gest event with them in ten years , for
they realize the widespread import
ance of the census figures.
It has been suggested that the Com
merclal club might well provide all
school children with blanks that could
be filled out at home , and thus help
to avoid missing people.
Norfolk will not have another
chance for ten years to take a federal
census and this , the last week , should
bo made a stem winder , people be

COAL TAR IN ROADMAKING.
Similar to Asphalt Pavement , but of
More Resilient Character.
Revolution In highway construction
Is predicted by mail } road engineers ,
but many others believe the successful
macadam met hod modified will be thn
only innovation. In that event the tar
macadam mot bud will surely bo con
sidered. A properly tarred road is
similar to an asphalt pavement , but of
D more resilient character. The stone
Is all bound together by the tar Into a
smooth , firm Mirfnce , which can bfi
swept and washed In much the same
manner as an asphalt pavement.
The main agencies which cause de
terioration of tarred or oiled surfacca
are heavy rain , frost and the decaying
organic matter which accumulates on
the surface of the road. So far as can
be determined , one kind of road with
stands tiie action of these agencies as
well as the other. Water gas tar Is
used In connection with coal tar , but
not to any great extent by Itself. It
has a greater power of penetration , and
less of It is required , but it Is not so
lasting. It really is In a class by itself
and occupies an intermediate position
between the temporary and the per

for climatic reasons it is available to
treat the road with the idea of Its last
ing only through one season water gas
tar Is expected to prove a valuable
dust layer , and any extension of its
use is thought to Ho in this direction.
The valueof coal tar in the preserva
tion of macadam roads and as a dust
preventive Is proved by the fact that
In the majority of cases the life of a
treated road has boon materially
lengthened , and by applying tar the
complete rebuilding of many roads at
an enormous expense has been avoided.
A gicat drawback in the. standard
ization of tar treatment l.s the impos
sibility of securing a uniform supply
of cual tor. Coal tar Is purely a by
product , and the processes b } which
it is derived are never run with refer
ence to the quality of tar produced ,
but solely to obtain maximum yields
of gas or coke.
KAISER AGAINST DEER !
Tells Young Student Guzzling Will
Prove Curse of Nation.
Berlin , May ! ) . -Tho kaiser Is being
applauded by one section of Gorman
opinion and condemned by the other
for liis recent sharp condemnation of
"the boor swilling habits" of German
His criticism did not take the form
of an oxcathedra denunciation , like his
past strictures on gambling and high
living In the army , but was addressed
to a son of Professor Kbhardt , who
Is a freshman at the Freiburg univer
sity , and who had just joined the stu
dents' corps In which the ability to
drink great quantities of beer is one
of the first qualifications of popularity.
The emperor earnestly warned the
lad that the drinking habit was seri
ously damaging not only individual
students but the Gorman nation , with
the result that both were falling be
hind foreigners , particularly the Amer
icans and the English , who , in consequence
quence of their more -sensible ideas
regarding drinking by youths , showed
in later years much greater powers of
resistance in the battle of life.
Ills majesty pointed out that Ger
mans with their increasing world en
terprises , would be more called upon
to live and work In tropical latitudes ,
where the climate was exceedingly V
dangerous to men who In their youth
had been addicted to alcohol.
The emperor's attitude Is heartily
commended by thoughtful people , in
cluding many students themselves , but
is treated with ridicule by the adher
ents to bibulous traditions.
