Misrepresent Norfolk House.
The Evnna Fruit company , the only
wholesale fruit IIOUBO In Norfolk , IB
clng done an Injustice by represen-
atlvcs of BOIIIO Omahn fruit house
vho are nilBrepresentlng themselves
o fruit dealers In towns tributary to
From good authority It Is learned
hat these representatives of the
Omaha house tell fruit dealers in
outside towns that they have estnb-
Islicd a fruit house In Norfolk and
hat they keep a supply of fresh fruit
n this city.
An order for llfty crates of peaches
esterday was taken from the Evans
Vult company by these representn-
Ives who , over the telephone , told a
'rult denier In another town that they
vere "the new Norfolk fruit house"
ind the dealer , believing them to be
: ho Evans Fruit company , ordered
fifty crates of peaches. When the
full arrived , he found the misrepre
sentation and immediately notified the
Svans Fruit company who believe the
njusttcc of such acts should not bo
countenanced by fair dealers.
Evans' Only Fruit House Here.
There Is but one wholesale fruit
louse In Norfolk today , that of the
Evans company who are receiving
; reat support from Norfolk business
nen who believe In patronizing home
ndustry. At no time since the es
tablishment of the Evans Fruit com
pany In this city have the merchants
who have been dealing with Mr.
Hvnns found anything unsatisfactory.
Mr. Evans is a good business man and
lias been dealing fairly with his cus
tomers. His fruit comes to Norfolk
direct from California , Colorado and
other states where fruit Is grown , In
carload lots. No crate of fruit has
yet left this new wholesale house
without being Inspected and the re
sults are that fruit retailers in this
section of the country are finding out
that they are getting better varieties
of fruit nt lower prices. Incidentally
the establishment of the Evans Fruit
company in Norfolk has had n ten
dency in lowering prices , Norfolk busi
ness men say.
Circulate Vicious Falsehoods.
While misleading reports have
been circulated by Omaha competi
tors of the Evans Fruit company , that
the Norfolk fruit house is "going to
the wall , " Mr. Evans and Norfolk
business men who are closely ac
quainted with the new business here ,
declare this is "talk to steal trade
from the local house. "
"The business has never been bet
ter since we established here , " said
Mr. Evans today , when asked about
the fruit business. "I know that the
Omaha firm is trying hard to take
the trade from us but the people of
northeast Nebraska and southern
South Dakota will recognize that we
have helped lower the price of fruit
by establishing ourselves among
them. The Omaha house Is misrepre
senting us but so far wo have paid
little attention to them. The reports
thaywe are losing financially IE
false. The business is getting bettei
steadily. While we are doing a good
business I believe that when the frull
dealers become more acquainted wltli
us they will be better satisfied tc
trade with a homo dealer. We arc
not kicking about the business , we
are doing very well for a newly es
tablished firm and by this time nexl

Nebraska Farmer Killed.

The News : Aviator Walsh of the Cur
tlss Exhibition Co. , made two of the
best flights at Riverside park yestcr
day afternoon ever witnessed In No
Shortly after 2. o'clock the firs
flight was made. Mr. Walsh attalne <
the height of 1,100 feet , traveling four
teen miles in fifteen minutes , and be
Ing In sight of the immense crowd al
the time. He went up the secont
time about two hours later , travellnj
twenty miles , was 1,100 feet In tin
air and was absent from the eartl
about twenty-five minutes. Ho twic <
circled the city and Riverside park
went east within two miles of Oak
dale , returning to the park and raak
Ing the descent perfectly.
Much has been said about C. F
Walsh as an aviator , but his demon
stration In Neligh yesterday wlthou
doubt gives him first place as an op
erator of the Curtlss machine. He
had absolute control of the biplane a <
all times , and made the rise In the
park In the remarkable short distance
of 200 yards.
If It can be stated that the people
of Neligh caused any 111 feeling bj
the failure of the flight during the
race meet and baseball tournament
they certainly made good yestordaj
In giving this free and succesful oxhl
bitlon. The business men of this cltj
and members of the Commercial clul
paid ? 500 for the entertainment of tin-
many visitors here yesterday after
Within thirty minutes after the second

ment of a biplane flight.

Fremont , Neb. , Sept. 9. There waa
an Interesting little scene bordering
on the sensational enacted at the mu
nicipal light station at the hour when
the linemen , electricians nnd other

attractive young woman entered nnd ,
singling out Lineman M. T. Sankoy ,
confronted that young gentleman with
nn apology before nil present for nn
alleged defamatory statement ho had
made. Sankey dented that ho had
made the statement and blushed furi
ously. There were nt least a dozen
men In the room. Some of those com
menced to laugh and Sankoy , in his
embarrassment , permitted n sinllo to
play over his face. The next Instant
n shower of blows from nn umbrella
commenced descending upon his head.
Sankey turned and fled , nnd the young
woman pursued him to the stairs
which descend Into the engine room.

Jury , notwithstanding the fact that the

"A girl's reputation is everything to
her , " she said , "and there's no way for
her to defend It when nn ugly story
gets started , unless something llko
this Is done. I have a good position
here , but I have no father or brothers
to look after my Interests. I satisfied
myself that Sankey made the state
ment and made up my mind that I
would make him take It back if I
could. I damaged my umbrella nnd
