Those Who Visited Carlson Show Here
Tell of Their Trip.
The Stallion and Jack News : The
members of the Commercial club of
Norfolk courteously Invited the gradu
ates of Graham's Scientific Breeding
school of Kansas City , Mo. , all of
whom are breeders and stallion or
jack owners , to a social evening at the
Elks' club , where they were regally
entertained. The members of the club
vied with one another in their en
deavors to make all the strangers feel
quite nt home and were most success.-
ful in so doing. An excellent supper
was served , to which full justice was
Several hours were passed in ani
mated conversation and interchange of
ideas , which proved extremely inter
esting , as twenty-seven states of the
union and Old Mexico were represent
ed by practical stockmen , all of whom
had traveled great distances to at
tend the breeding school and then con
tinued their journey to Norfolk , Neb. ,
to meet the man of the hour , G. L.
Carlson , and attend his lectures on and
demonstrations of the capsule system
The worthy secretary of the club ,
Mr. Pasewalk , In an excellent Impro
vised speech , welcomed the guests
and reviewed Mr. Carlson's system of
scientific breeding from the commer
cial standpoint. Ho clearly pointed
out the many commercial advantages
which had been achieved locally by the
adoption of the capsule system.
Mr. Killlan and several other promi
nent members of the club spoke on
the same subject and warmly congrat
ulated Mr. Carlson on the success of
his system , which has done so much
to Improve the class of horses , not ) t
only In that particular district , but all
over the United States.
Mr. Pasewalk asked the visitors In
attendance , practically all members
of the Scientific Breeding school of
Kansas City , to give their opinions on
the subject. By common consent J. A.
Daly , the breeder of the state of
Coahiula , Mex. , who journeyed from
that republic to attend the school , was
asked to make the first talk. Mr. Daly
was one of the most interesting mem
bers of the school , being managing
partner In a ranch of 120,000 acres
In Old Mexico. Ho Is a member of the
Royal Agricultural society of England ,
has had experience In breeding in Ire
land , his birthplace , In Now Zealand.
Argentine and Chile. On the haclonda
"Santa Anita , " on which ho Is now lo
cated , there are 1,100 breeding marcs ,
51 jacks , mostly Imported , of which
21 are In service , 5 stallions and 1,800 )
mules. Knowing these things of Mr.
Daly , his talk , which follows , was all
listened to with the greatest Interest :
"Gentlemen 1 should very much
llko to bo able to toll you Just how I
feel on the subject , but I am much
more competent to handle horses than
to publicly express my opinion on lions
vitally Interesting study which has
Induced so many practical and experienced ! '
perienced men to temporarily abandon
their huslncBR and travel far , In order
to attend the Graham Scientific BreedIng -
Ing Kchpol , and on Its closure , journey
still further , to continue their studies
under the personal dliectlon of the Inventor -
vontor of the capsule * system , which
has been working wonders all over
the United States and In many other
parts of the world.
"People frequently fall to appreciate !
the good that lays at their own door j
and 1 very much doubt If many Norfolk -
folk people fully understand what Mr.
Carlson has done for your horse breedt '
ers , and how much he has done to
make Norfolk known to the outside
world. Until a few years ago , your
city was quite unknown to people
who did not llvo In the United States ,
but now , gentlemen , It Is known to at. I .
least all progressive breeders all over I
the civilized world , as being a thriv '
ing , go-ahead city with great commer
cial Interests and as the homo of the
most progressive horse breeder In the
universe , G. L. Carlson.
A School for Carter.
Carter News : That Carter will have
a school this fall is now an assured
fact. At a meeting held at Gllkeson
Miller's store , the plans for the or
ganization were made. The township
school hoard , which Is composed of
Otto Schamber , William Bylor and J.
10. Cole , met with a number of our
public spirited citizens and the two
bodies came to an agreement In a
jiffy. It was the opinion of all that
Carter needs a school this fall and
needs It badly , so these present at the
nicotine did not lose a great deal of
time on that point , so the next tiling
taken up was the leasing of a building
for school purposes , the construction
of such a building being out of the
question nt the present time , because
Carter township already has a school
building , and the township Is bonded
to the amount permitted by law.
Crelghton Raises License.
Crelghton News : The city council
passed a new occupation ordinance
last Monday night which will prove to
bo of considerable Importance. The
principal feature is the raising of the
saloon occupation tax from $ ' 100 to
$1.000 , which with the state tax means
$1,500 for a saloon license in Croigh-
ton In the future. It is understood the
vote \vas unanimous on the proposi
tion. Tliis is as it should be , the
Crelghton saloon license having been
lower than any other town of its size
in this part of the * tate , and there is
no reason why they should not he
niised to at least a level with others.
A heavy tax was also imposed on itin
erant doctors , shows and outside busi
ness o'f every description. The coun
cil is to be commended for their action
and it appears to receive the hearty
approval of the business men in gen
Roosevelt Endorsed Burkett.
When Colonel Roosevelt was in
Omaha September 2 and made a
speech at the Auditorium , he was in
troduced by Senator Burkott. In re
sponse to the senator's introductory
address Colonel Roosevelt gave him a
splendid endorsement. The former
president's remarks , as reported in the
Lincoln Journal , were as follows :
"I am particularly pleased to be
introduced by Senator Burkett , " said
the colonel , "because he was one of
the men on whom I especially relied
while I was president , botli while ho
was in the house and in the senate.
On one occasion ho paid a tribute to
me which may have been entirely un
merited , in which he described what
the typical American public servant
must be. lie said : 'In the great
struggle of life he ( the good Amer
ican ) must bo prepared to take the
side of the man rather than of the
dollar. Old time methods in politics ,
old time ideals of governmental duty
and prerogative are relegated to the
junk shop of political antiquities. No
man who Is skeptical in his own mind
of the righteousness of the advanced
ground that the American people have
taken socially or morally can have
their confidence. No man who is fear
ful of popular rule , or is more afraid
of the people's oppression of predatory
wealth with law than of its oppression
of the people without law is eligible
to popular esteem. "
"In my own case , " Colonel Roosevelt
volt continued , "all I can say is that I
have endeavored to live up to that
description and that I was able to ac
complish what I did accomplish in
Washington only because of the way
in which I was backed by men llko
Senator Burkett , and as wo have a
guest from Iowa present , let me say
also , llko Senator Dolllver. "
Robbing- Bee Tree.
Battle Creek Enterprise : A couple
of fellows with a tooth for honey and
an eye for bad business came near
furnishing a job for the coroner Sun
day night while attacking a tree in the
grove of J. A. Moore , tholr Intent be
ing to rob It of Its sweets which Jack's
bees had been industriously storing
for winter use.
It was between 10 and 11 o'clock ,
and as there was no moon , the fellows
used a lantern. Mr. Moore says tha
since he has missed a number of chick'
ens ho has been sleeping with one ear
I on the ground. Hearing the thieves
] at work , he got his gun and quietly
. sneaked within easy range and called
I for them to throw up their hands. Be-
Ing so dark , they could not see their
way to comply with the command.
Did they run ? Mr. Moore took throe
' shots at them as they splashed
through the creek , using all the am
munition In the gun. Ho was a few
bullels shy , ho says , or this tale would
not so abruptly end. In going over the
promises Iho next morning ho found j
the balls in a tree , thereby discover
ing thai his aim was Jusl a few inches
high. The honey Is sllll In the tree
and Jack has ammuntllon to burn.
Next time he intends to shoot 'em in
For School at Dallas.
Dallas News : At a meeting of the
school board held In this city Monday
morning at the olllce of President -
voy. considerable business was trans-1
acted preparatory to the opening of
the t ! school for the year next Monday.
In I addition to this business , the mat
ter of the erection of a now high
school building was also taken up and
numerous business men were called
Into the meeting , all of whom express-
ed themselves In hearty accord with
the t ! Idea of holding an election ut an
early date for the authorizing of the
Issuance of school bonds for that nur-
pose , and to erect a building which
will meet the needs of the community
for ' years to come. It Is the purpose
of the board , if the matter meets with
11 the approval of the voters , to erect a
building modern In architecture and
equipment , of substantial building ma
terial , cither brick or stone , at a cost
of about twenty thousand dollars.
Hay Already Hlah.
Nlobrara Tribune : In many sec
tions of the west there will bo but lit
tle hay this year , and In some places
hay Is selling for from $15 to $25 a
ton. There nro some fields In this
county where the yield of corn will bo
light , and these could be cut for fodder
and make valuable feed. In this way
farmers of this vicinity would bo able
to dispose of more hay at fancy prices.
Some of the pastures are short and
block will need dry feed earlier this
year than usual. The man who has
not enough rough feed to winter his
stock will make money by disposing
of enough stock so that he will have
no trouble In wintering the balance.
"Keeping It Out. ' '
Newman Grove Reporter : "Keep It
out of the paper" is the cry which the
local newspaper publisher dally hears.
To oblige often costs considerable ,
though the party who makes the re
quest thinks the granting scarcely
worth saying "thank you" for. A
newspaper is a peculiar thing in the
public's eye. The news-gatherer Is
stormed nt because lie gets hold of
ono item and is abused because ho
does not get another. Young men , and
often young women , as well as older
persons , perform acts which become
legitimate items for publication , and
hen rush to the newspaper olllce and
> eg the editor not to notice their es-
apades. The next day they condemn
ho same paper for not having pub-
ished another part doing the same
bins they were guilty of , forgetting ,
apparently , their late visit to the print-
TO PUSH ON 10 GARTER
President's Proclamation on Rosebud
Opening Expected in May.
Dallas News : There Is no lot-up in
the work of railroad grading west.
Many outfits now employed between
Dallas and Colome have already
noved further up the line or will dose
so within a week or ton days. Cham
berlain and Peak , one of the largest
outllts on the Job , moved Monday to
Winner , and on Tuesday morning
commenced on the work of grading
miles 19 , 20 and 21. This tract is
through the town of Winner and ono
mile west. E. Lamoreau , who has
miles 18 and 19 , will move in a few
days and their camp will be just cast
of Winner , and L. Lamoreau , who has
miles 13 and 14 , will move In about ten
days and establish his camp near the
Brondon Springs. The intervening
tracts will be taken up as soon as the
work on the contract between Dallas
and Colome is completed.
Word has reached Dallas from a
very authoritive source that the pros
ident's proclamation for the opening
of the Rosebud and Pine Ridge reser
vation is expected In the early spring
in May and that the registration will
be held some time during the month
of July and that it is the purpose of
the Northwestern railroad to push the
work clear through to Carter as rap
idly as possible so as to be In readl
ness for that business when the open
ing days are reached. In this opening
the Milwaukee road will bo a strong
competitor with the Northwestern , as
their road to the north of Tripp county
comes within two miles of the reser
vation to be opened and It is reason
able to suppose that the Northwestern
will do everything possible to protect
its Interests , and this could be done in
no other way bettor than the early
completion of this extension and get
Its roadbed In condition for the largo
traffic which awaits it.
O'Neill Cleans Up.
O'Neill Independent : The order has
gone fortli from the mayor and city
council for a general clean up in the
city. Several cases of typhoid fever
have developed lately and the order is
for your own benefit ami. there should
bo no delay in seeing that the order
is fully obeyed. A good cleanup now
and with the sewers soon to be fin
ished O'Neill ought to bo free from
Kicks Boy In Jaw.
O'Neill Independent : The 17-year-
old son of Tuck Moore , who lives on
the Mike Vaughn place west of town ,
met with a serious and painful acci
dent Monday afternoon whllo out
mowing. Ho was driving a colt with
an older horse , and whllo ho was In
front of Hie mower oiling Iho pitman ,
the colt became frightened and kicked
the boy In the left jaw , breaking the
Fake Linseed Oil.
Fairfax Advertiser : The merchants
I of Fairfax have become aware that
there are parties selling or taking or
ders for what they claim to bo linseed
oil , to the farmers throughout the
county at CO cents per gallon. The
fact Is that our merchants are coin-
polled to pay 92 cents per gallon f. o.
b , at Omaha , and adding to this the
freight ( , makes good linseed oil cost'
them UC cents delivered. They retail
! the t oil at $1 per gallon , which leaves
I them but 4 cents profit on each gallon.
J Considering the waste in measuring
out In small quantities , their profit Is
cut down to a very small figure. Our
merchants aim to deal fairly with the
11 tanners and at the same time abide by
the state law prohibiting the sale of
counterfeit oils. It Is certain that the
oil thobo agents nro selling is not the
pure linseed oil. Of course they do
not deliver the oil and only carry samc
pies. When this oil arrives the merchants -
chants intend to have It tested by the
state authorities and If It Is not up to
the law's requirements they will Int
slst on the prosecution of the agents
and the company they represent. If
the state has a law requiring the mer
chants to soil only the genuine article ,
It should protect them by vigorously
prosecuting traveling agents who soil
Inferior goods at n price that legiti
mate merchants cannot meet.

Over land and sea Graham White of
England sailed out to Boston light
nnd returned In his Bleriot monoplane ,
the first competitor for the Globe $10-
000 prize , the blue ribbon event of the
Harvard-Boston aeroplane meet. The
course was one of thirty-three miles
consisting of two trips of seven miles
east straight down the harbor to the
light and return and then a number of
turns on the course to make the total
mileage. The Englishman established
a mark of 40 minutes 1 % seconds ,
which If not bettered before the meet
closes next Tuesday night will give
him the big prize.

The days are long and the nights

Most of the correspondents carry

Between important stops there are
many stations where Colonel Roosc-

line so the correspondents divide the

run for the platform of the press car
as the train pulls out. Accordingly
one or two correspondents get out and

brakemnn for the train so they will
not be left behind. Occasionally part
of the correspondents stand on the
back platform with the speaker. Af-

Kansas at noon that day. At C o'clock
