who organized the movement in , the
United States. Mrs. Dodge is inter
ested in BO many different nurseries ,
besides being president of the state
association of day nurseries , that it
Is necessary for her to have n regular
staff of assistants.
One of the duties of this stuff of
assistants is to visit the .different In

interviews with each little inmate ,
what his or her particular want is
in the way of a' Christmas gift On

him , alarming thoughts passing through
her mind for fear ho would nsk for
a steamboat or n railroad system.
"Anything nt all I want ? " persisted
"Yes , anything you want"
Tommy's little black face grow pos
itively radiant "Toll him , " ho said ,
scarcely restraining his ocstncy , "tell
him to bring mo a great big pork
Ho was not a very hard looking char ,
nctcr an ho stood before Magistrate
Kornochnn , who IB noted as Now
York'B society Judge , accused of ells-
orderly' ( conduct , but ho had given a
policeman a lively ten minutes the
night before. When the policeman
finished his story the magistrate asked
the prisoner what ho had tp say for
"Well , Judge , 1 am not such an aw-
fill bad follow and I have never boon

a little too much to drink nnd I sup
pose It made mo feel nasty. "
"Do you llvo In this district , nnd Is
there anyone who can speak for you ? "
asked the magistrate. "You know
that for all that I can toll you might
bo lying to mo. "
"Yes , " replied the 'man , "I llvo In
this district and perhaps the llonton-
tint known me. "
The magistrate turned to the lieu
tenant who was standing behind the
desk , and asked If ho know the man.
"No. " replied the lieutenant , "I do
not know him. " -
"Well , " said the magistrate turn
ing to the prisoner , "what have you
got to say ? "
"If I wore such a bad diameter as
they are trying to mnko mo , ho would
know mo , wouldn't ho ? "
"You may go , " said the magistrate ,
"but bo careful next time. "

did find 104 letters , of which sixty-
three were made a part of his wife's

the Elgin , Albion and Newman Grove
high schools. Prof. Newell was in
Newman Grove last Thursday evening
where ho met representatives from
the other .schools and the league was
formed. Each school will have two
teams , a girls and a boys. It is
planned for each town to have two

games will probably be played about
January 6 , in Elgin and the other
games will follow at convenient in
tervals In the other towns until El
gin's turn comes again. Tbo cham
pionship game will be played in Al
bion. By the time the final game
arrives it is figured that considerable
Interest will bo worked up , and by
having the game played at Albion ,
It will give a better opportunity for
Elgin nnd Newman Grove parties to
attend , than it would if It was held
at either of the other towns.

as we did not expect to see as com
plete n plant west of the Missouri

Norfolk would look It over when In
town they would have more of n
realizing sense of the magnitude of
the business carried on , also of the
wonderful work being done by this
same Norfolk Dally News In the way
of educating , opening up and develop

both line and costs of prosecution nro
paid , but County Attorney Stewart
