Jeffries' Cnmp Without Snap as Re sult of Glllett's Order. Jeffries' Training Camp. June 20. Wo are all like a stale bottle of pop absolutely without any snap or ginger and once more Jeffries disappointed me by resting and not doing any box ing. The gloom thnt was cast over the camp by the announcement that the governor had ordered the fight stopped lias not disappeared and no body felt at all like working. We all wanted to just loaf and think , and that's all .we did. Of course Jeffries did punch the bag and play two games of handball in the morning and he interspersed a little rope skipping into ins morning Avorkout. Hut I noticed that he did not put the vim into the game that he generally does , and I proved an easy victim for him because of my own gloomy feelings. I was totally with' out ambition and felt a little bit re llevc'd when I learned that Jeffries had Cut out work for the day. Mind you , what Jeffries did he did well , but he just did it in the manner of a man who wants to keep in shape , not in the vigorous slam bang style that has characterized his work be fore. You see I'm using my own feel lugs as a barometer of Jeffries and 1 think I have him gauged right. How ever , way out here where we are nl- most cut off from civilization we can't tell exactly what's going on in the city , and understand that a lot ol things have transpired and developed that we know nothing about. Jeffries 'insists upon making him relf think that the light will bo held in Frisco , and he will continue tc think that way till he's officially notl lied to the contrary by Tex HIckard Up to date ho has not been notified If the scene of battle Is changed , ant ! it appears likely that it will be , 1 should advise Jeffries not to ask for r , postponement. He already is in great condition and I do not think he coult improve on himself physically by tak ing more time. Personally , from what Informntior I have at hand , I do not think there' ; n chance for the light to be held ii Frisco now. Hut until Jeffries has his mind set at rest regarding this point I do not believe ho will attempi any boxing whatever. And that's what is worrying mo just now UK boxing.as I have said all along , Jell needs it , and needs It badly. It's al well to say that he never boxed mucl in training before and that he has done more glove work for this fighi than he did for any other one he evei had , but it is also true that he nevei has stacked up against such a clevei boxer , outside of myself , as this same Mr. Jack Johnson. My light with Jeff ries at Coney Island Is what we hai to go on in trying to figure the com ing battle. "But Jeff won , didn't he ? " say you He did , but we must remember tha that was ten years ago , and ten yean makes a big difference. And we als ( must remember Jeffries has not had i glotn on In seven years , whereas IK was boxing right along when he wen against me. If he did not do it whih training he was doing It in the rlnj for blood. The fast work at boxlnf will get Jim's eye and distance rlghi and then there'll be nothing to It That's absolutely all he needs now and I know It will help him greatly James J. Corbett. Herrick's Baseball Team. Herrick Press : The leaders of Her rick's baseball organization went ou among the business people Monda ; and solicited donations of funds wltl which to purchase new ball suits mitts , and other paraphernalia usei In the games. Our people respondet to the call liberally and in the coursi of an hour or two nearly $150 wai raised. Herrick Is to have a goo ( team this year , but Intends to adhen to the rule of playing local parties only , which we believe should be fol lowed by all the towns In the Inter est of good , interesting baseball. With "Unloaded" Gun. Wisner Chronicle : While Willlan Schmoldt was shooting at a target a his father's home last Sunday with i small rille , a bullet struck Mona , tin little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Join Dewitz , who was playing at thel home at a distance of several blocks The ball passed through a small per tlon of the llesh on one of her limb : and grazed the other. This acclden demonstrates the danger of using fire arms in the city. It Is Indeed fortu nate that the ball did not strike tin little girl in n vital spot or It wouli Lave caused a terrible tragedy. NORDICA STOPPED THE CLOCK. The Clanging of the Tlmplece Bother' e'd the Singer. New York , June 20. Not for every one IH the old town clock of Irvlngton- on-tho-Hudson stopped. Hut last night It came to a stand for Lillian Nordlea. The songstress did not stop It her self. It was done by polite town olll- clals. This Is why : The other day when the singer visit ed the town hall , In whoso tower Is the old clock that has not stopped for years , Hhe made a few minor altera tions In the room for the concert which she gave last night for the ben efit of the Hudson Kiver Franchise as sociation. As she stood on the stage the old clock boomed forth the hour. "Mercy me , what , was that ? " ex- lalmed the singer. She was told that it was the clock sounding the hour. "Hut I can't sing with that going .HI. " she declared. So the clock was halted In Its prog ress. It was allowed to strike the lour of 8 , just before the concert be- ; tui , and then it was silent until 11 , when the concert was over. AIMS SUIT T MRS. J. S. LOFTIS. Mrs. J. W. Oliver Asks $25,000 for the Alienation of Affections. Chicago , Juno 20. Mrs. Ida Loft Is , wife of Joseph S. Loftls of the diamond mend linn of Loftls Itros. & Co. , was sued for $25,000 for alienation of affec tions by Mrs. Ada F. Oliver , wife of John W. Oliver , SOti East FIfty-llrst street , a real estate man connected with the firm of Oliver & Co. , 110 Dearborn street. While the suit , which was filed In the superior court by Attorney Hiram I. Keck , representing Mrs. Oliver , has attained only the dimensions of a praecipe , it was gathered that Mrs. Oliver claims to have met Mr. Oliver and Mrs. Loftls together in the Con gress hotel recently. They did not recognize Mrs. Oliver , according to the story , and In consequence Mrs. Ollvod was enabled to surprise her husband by accusations when he had reached the Oliver residence that night. Thorn was a family smash and Mr. Oliver departed from the prem ises. ises.Over Over the telephone from her resi dence at 4011 Sheridan road , Mrs. Lof- tis , the defendant in the case , made vigorous answer to the allegation con tained in the bill. "Tills is absurd and Impossible , " she gasped , when told of it. "This is the first I have heard of the charge. " The story about the alleged meetIng - Ing In the Congress hotel then was recited In detail to Mrs. Loftis. "Absolutely absurd and Impossible , " she repeated. "Who Is Mr.Oliver , ? " asked the In terviewer. "My husband will discuss this case , " responded Mrs. Loftls firmly. "I am not going to go Into my affairs with you. " "Is Mr. Loftls there ? " asked the in- tervlewer , who was perfectly willing to talk with him. "Yes , he's here , but he's sick and can't come to the phone , " responded Mrs. Loftis. "But he'll talk to you to- morrow. " "This is a surprise to me , " said Mrs , S. T. A. Loftis , wife of another mem ber of the diamond firm. "I know nothing of this trouble. Yes , I know the Olivers that is , one family ol that name. " Mrs. Oliver was found at her resi < deuce. She proved to be a brunette with flashing eyes. She was In higli dudgeon and spoke wrathfully to the reporter. In point of speed her words competed with the flashes of her eyes "I won't talk about this to any re 'porters , " she announced. "You can'l bluff me into talking. " The reporter spoke soothingly ; , bul she refused to be beguiled by his re presentations. She wouldn't tell where her husband was if she knew. etc. etc. Then she bounced back into hei flat and slammed the door. Mrs. Walter D. Oliver , 4501 Drex el boulevard , said she had not heard anything about the trouble. "I didn't know that they had had any trouble , " she said , referring to the Oliver family Involved in the suit. " 1 cannot discuss their affairs. " The Loftis brothers gained some no < torlety In 1908 , when a shooting oc curred in their office during a bus ! ness meeting of the company. Samuel Loftls was shot and slightly wounded and the central police were called. Samuel came into public notice again last August when he was expelled polled from the South Shore Country club "for conduct Injurious to the peace and good order of the South Shore Country club" by a vote of the board of directors. It was alleged at the time that Mr , Loftls had used unbecoming language to his wife and had laid violent hands upon her. The evidence was to the effect that Mr. Loftls did not strike 01 slap his wife , but that a scene wai created In the club that was Impro- per. Norfolk Has Water Famine. If Norfolk had had a fire Fridaj night or Saturday , or if It has one to night , there would have been and there will be serious danger. There isn't enough water in the standpipc tc : play tag with the smallest kind of n flame. Residents living near the stnndpipe can't get a drop of watei and there's only a little trickle In other parts of town , when the hose is turned on. So your town's In danger , The city took back the water pump Ing proposition to its own account some weeks ago. and hasn't been able to maintain pressure. Part of the time the city buys olec trie power but It has Its own steam pumn at the water works. Supervl sion of the pressure rests entirely with the city. The city mayor himself says the water barely leaked through a garden hose at his home. The mayor's telephone - phone was kept busy by Inquirers who asked to know what the trouble was. Ho made an Investigation and found that there was very little or no water at all In the standpipc , though the electric pump was working. "I don't believe there was ten feet of water In the Htandpipe last evening , " said the mayor. "In ease of a fire , we would be with out protection , would wo not ? " he was asked. * "Absolutely , " replied the mayor. "I ordered the city's steam pump fired up this morning , " continued Mayor Friday. "Unless we can get pressure with the'steam pump , which is all out of order at this present time , 1 will have to ask the citizens to quit using water until a now heater for the steam pump arrives. We linvo no heater now and cold water Is thrown into the boiler , whereas before it was heated at about ISO degrees before It entered the boil er. It will cost us about $1,000 or more to put our steam pump In con dition. " The mayor ajso believed It would cost more to fix the pump in tiptop shape before the city could have the plant in first class condition. The city street sprinkler was shut off during the afternoon to save water. "The electric pump is a 4'JO-gallon capacity machine and the city steam pump ibout i > 00 gallons , " said one man , who has been running the pumps , and both together can't keep the stamlpipi' filled well enough to pro tect the town against fire. The pumps haven't the capacity to meet the de mand , at the rate Norfolk is using water now. Hose allowed to run in the lawn all day long Is commonplace , and the result is that If Norfolk should have a fire , there'd be serious consequences quences possible. " Conservatory Commencement. The final program of graduation of students from the Norfolk branch of the Western Conservatory of Music of Chicago was rendered at the Audi torium Thursday evening before an appreciative and enthusiastic audi ence. The graduates were Misses Grace Hills , May Schwenk and Emma Lane. The musical program by the graduates and post-graduates was very fine.

The gold medal was presented to Oscar Schavland , class of 1UOG , as reward of merit for progress in music since graduation. An unus ual feature of the year's course was the booklet of recitals during the year past , containing the alumni roster , prepared by Mrs. Cora A , Heels , the inter-state teacher and director , to whose indefatigable labors the success of the institution is due.

Of nil the cities of the eartli this is the most unique , for it is bnilt out in the Adriatic sea on 120 small islands , about ten miles from the mainland. The city is connected by 4f > 0 public bridges so that the streets are made of water , and gondolas dolas are the vehicles for travel. Horses and carriages have never been seen in the streets of this an cient city. Venice was founded by n few men seeking an escape from Attila , who was looked upon as the "scourge of God. " This Venetian city withstood the storms and attacks of enemies for over a dozen centuries , and still defies the sea that constantly Hews through its streets. The first bank of deposit In Europe was started in this city , and here the first newspaper known to the world was printed in St. Mark's square for a coin , called The Gazetta. Venice was the first town in Italy to print books. On the Grand canal is the RIalto high bridge mentioned by Shakespeare , which Is curious and attractive but worn by the lapse of years. Rogers says , in describing Venice : "There is a glorious city in the sea. The sea is in the broad , the narrow streets , Ebbing and flowing ; and the salt sea weed Clings to the marble of her palaces. No trace of man , no footsteps to and fro , Lead to her gates. The path lies o'er the sea Invisible ; and from the land we went , As to a floating city steering in And gliding up her streets as in a dream. " It's a Slow Life. It is strange ! All through the city are the waterways for the gondolas , which are the only means of transpor tation. How would Norfolk people like to live in such a city ? Always life. No sound of rolling wheels or bear one away to business or the store. It Is indeed a very slow , quiet waiting for a gondola to come and clattering hoofs. The noted church In the city is St. Mark's , so named because the apostle St. Mark is buried near one of the shrines. It was built In 830 A. D. Out side the portico are four bronze horses , the work of Lyslppus the Co rinthian artist. They were presented to Nero , who caused them to be har nessed to the chariot of the sun , after wards used by Troian and then brought from Constantinople by Doge Dandolo in 1204. Inside the door of the main entrance is a stone on which it Is said Pope Alexander III made Frederick Uarbarossa pros trate hlmnolf. and placed his foot on the king's neck and made him recog nize the papal power. This was July 23 , 1177. This shows how some men use power when It Is given unto them. In front of this church Is a largo open court or rlazzotta , where people feed the thousands of pigeons trom 2 to 4 o'clock each day. and 1 am sure our party enjoyed this novel experience very much , and then the birds are so tame and will eat out of one's hands. Nearby Is a clock tower on which are two bronze figures which strike the hours on the big bell and then bronze figures come out to mark the time , one for each hour , and the days here are marked by from 1 o'clock up to 24 o'clock. The square Is surrounded witli shops and stores of a thousand kinds. Near by Is the Doges' palace , on the Grand canal. This Is a wonderful building , now used for a picture gallery. The best and finest paintings here are : "The Israelites Crossing the Dead Sea" ; "Christ in Glory ; " "Jacob's Re turn Home" ; "The Angel Driving the Vices Away" ; "The Battle of Lepan- to" ; "The Adoration of the Savior. " Hut the most famous of all Is "Para dise , " by Tintoretto. This picture Is GOxlOO feet , and if Paradise In any wise competes with this , as wo truly believe thnt it greatly surpasses any picture , it is Indeed a grand good hap py place and most of all to be sought alter. Infamous Prison Under Palace. rndorneath the palace is the in famous prison where the captives wore kept , and these are dingy damp cells , and death would surely be a pleasure Instead of years spent In these horrible rible places. Just above these cells and over a canal is the Bridge of Sights , where women , wives and sweethearts came to weep for loved ones who had been sent to Imprisonment. The cheapest ride I ever had on a steamer was in Venice , where I took an hour's ride for two cents. It was here I met a Mrs. Ilutchlns of Indian apolis , a classmate of mine while a student in DePauw university. Venice Is a city of 2r)0,000 ) people , and thousands of tourists are dally in the town. From Venice we took a long run on the train to Uelluno , a beautiful little city in the mountains. Here we chartered a coach and took a two days' coaching trip through the Tyrolese Alps of forty-seven miles. This was a beautiful trip , as we wound our why up over mountain after moun tain , each one covered with the eter nal snow. We spent one night at Cor tina , just over the line in Austria. It was very cold here , snow being all around our hotel. We secured car riages here for a still higher drive over the new Dolomite road of ten miles through a region of unsurpassed beauty. It has been called the pearl of the Tyrolean mountain-world , and Its sublime grandeur surely justifies Its name of the Alpine Paradise of Tyrol , for not even the wildest Imag ination can possibly conceive a more bewildering array of phnntnsticnlly shaped mountain giants or more va riegated lines of richly tinted peaks and spires that tower into the blue sky on every side , all white in the glistening sun. The ancient burgs and castles scattered over the mountains increase the charm of natural beauty. A large snow plow had to go before us and open a road for us. After passing over the mountains we were told 8,738 feet high , we came to Toblach , where we took the train for Innsbruck , Again we passed through a wonderful mountain scenery , leaping from moun tain to mountain and passing from one feet deep on every one. We came at last into a beautiful valley to the oily of Innsbruck , the capital of Tirol , a city of 50,000 people. Hero we spent a. few days and feasted on the pictures in the royal palace and visited the tunnel to another , rnd snow ten to 100 "Hofkirche , " named after the patriot Andreas Hofer , who fought against surrendering Tirol to Bavaria. Gener al Hofer was captured and ordered shot by Napoleon. As I sit in my hotel and look down in the valley I see parks , gardens , green trees and fruit , then I raise my eyes up the mountain and they are crested with the snow. So here I am , in one second I see the summer scene , but the next I see the frost of the north pole. Our party Is all well and we are having a great time. I must say goodbye. Charles Wayne Ray. Innsbruck , Tirol , May 13 , 1910. A Visit to Dresden. Dresden , May 22. We have spent a very delightful time in Dresden , the capital of Saxony , located on the Elbe river , 11C miles southeast of Berlin. This is a modern , up-to-date city of 600,000 people and is a popular center for American tourists , and just now the town is flooded with these globe trotters. Some are here for a few days only , but others are here for one , two and three years. The streets are elegantly paved with either block , wood , s one or ce ment and are clean and well kept. However , you will often see that the street sweepers are women some times real old women. The stores are large and fine in appearance , but are generally confined to one line of goods one store for gloves , another for hats , shirts and so on , and on Sunday these stores are all closed and canvas is placed over the show windows so that goods are not to be seen on the Sabbath. The railway station Is a fine large marble building , very neat and clean. There are three beautiful churches here the Presbyterian , Luth eran and Roman Catholic. The royal palace is a magnificent place. It is the homo of the king of Saxony. The decorations , furniture and furnishings are very costly. On the outside wall facing the main street are painted the pictures of all the for mer kings. The royal art gallery commands the attention of the world , for it has 2.GOO pictures , Most of those are master pieces. One of the principal attrac tions hero Is the "Grosao Garten , " which Is a large park , two miles long and one mile wide , and Is a.very beau tiful place. Flowers , trees and nature beauties are elegant ; then the little lake Is a mass of fishes and I thought how M. C. Ilnzcn. Dr. 1) . K. TIndall and 1) ) . Mnthowson would like to have a chance to drop their hooks In and try their luck. Meat Cheaper There. The big steamers ply up and down tiie river and do a large business. 1 have noticed that moats are cheaper here than In America. Ham and ba eon are Hi cents per pound. One can rldo several miles on the street cars for two cents , and on a bus for one cent for a rldo. This Is a center for musicians , and many are here from America and also from England. The much talked of llnlley's comet has passed over with out any serious injury to our world , and people here who were very much excited before have settled down to a once more quiet life. The recent re port concerning the navies of the world gives the United States second and Germany third , so that Americans may well be proud of their place , hut the day Is near when we shall staud first In the navy , arm and commercial cen ter. Even now the English are con ceding that New York city has the lead of London for business. Our American future and greatness , viewed from the narrow confines of these small countries , twenty of which may be pitched Into our country and lost to sight , is very amazing and unparal leled In the history of any other coun try. Long may the stars and stripes float over a free and united people. One of our greatest needs Is , 1 am sure , a stricter enforcement of our laws. Too much freedom is given and we are too easy on some of our law breakers. You will hear from me from Berlin after a few days. Here's to the health of Norfolk cit izens. Charles Wayne Ray. STANTON COURT ADJOURNS. Charles Bode Pleads Guilty to Bur glary and Gets Year In Pen. Stanton , Neb. , Juno 18. Special to The News : The adjourned March term of the district court of Stanton county came to an end.

Wayne Normal Notes. The program for commencement is now being planned and will soon be in the hands of the printer. The ar rangement of tills is no small matter. Among new students entering this week are : August Nordgren and sis ter of Newman Grove , and Miss Hallle Cornell of Tilden. Already the registration of students for the last term of the year is tak ing place. It already exceeds that of last year , which indicates a large en rollment. The faculty" will be augmented by the addition of Professor T. Reese Solomon of Norfolk , Miss Edith Beech- el of Laurel ami Professor Huntemer. The latter returns from the famous Stout Manual Training school , bring ing all the Improved , up-to-date plans of drawing and manual training for public schools. Miss Emma Martlny received no tice this week that she has been elect ed as primary teacher at Allen. Ches ter Jones , a member of this year's scientific class , will be principal. Owing to the standard having been raised , we did not expect nearly as large a class completing the work as our records show we will have. This is most gratifying to the management , as well as to the students. The examinations will be held on Thursday , Friday and Saturday of this week. This will be a very busy time for all. Miss Carroll's girls' classes In physi cal culture will give a program in the gymnasium this evening. The enter tainment cannot fail to bo Interesting. Professor Huntemer arrived Sunday and is spending this week In getting everything ready in his department for next term. His classes in handiwork promise to bo very large. A number of high school students from different towns , who lack a few credits or would have to bo condition ed , will bo In school next term. Now He Breaks His Wrist. Veron Gill suffered a broken wrist as the result of falling from the wagon lie was driving at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The wagon was heavily loaded with sewing machines and struck a ditch on Norfolk avenue west of Fourth street. Gill was thrown to the ground , face forward. One of the machines fell on top of him. Ho threw out his hands to brace himself with the result that his left wrist was broken.
