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 Norfolk. 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 year I believe our business will bt doubled. " Nebraska Farmer Killed.

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 employes had assembled In the office for their assignments of work.

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. The flaying did not cease until the unlucky lineman had disappeared. Snnkey escaped without serious InJury - Jury , notwithstanding the fact that the umbrella was stuck full of pins for the purpose of making it effective for a lasting impression. Immediately following her Inter view with Snnkey , the young woman turned to the others. "I want you nil to know that ho denied - nied that ho said It , " she said , between gasps.

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 unstrung my nerves , but I do not re gret what I did.
