HEViniTS 1O THIS COUNTY.
Tlio Unpaid Tor Poor Kami Lots He-
mnln IMibllo Property.
Speaking of the decision Judge AVukoloy
rendered Saturday with regard to the sale of
certain lots by the county at auction in 1SS7 ,
but for which the purchasers have not paid ,
County Attorney Mohonoy .said :
"I think there are about twenty lots in all
that will rarcrt to the comity us a result of
this decision. Tlippropcity is worth between
SiO.OOO and 50,000. These lots cannot bo sold
now until authority from the voters
of Uio county can ba again be
stowed upon the county board.
The original sale of three years ngo was for
the purpose of securing funds to assist in
building the county hospital. The hospital
has been built , nnd thcro Is n surplus of
funds , so the board could not re-sell the lots
now for that purpose. I shall carry the test
case to the supreme court , but I hnvo no
hope of having the decision handed down by
Judge Wakoley reversed , for the reason that
n simple receipt for a small cash payment
cannot bo taken in court as proof of neon-
tract , unless that receipt Is sufficiently ex
plicit to cnablo the court to understand what
the contract was. In this caw. the receipts
given the purchasers at the time the
small cash payment was made do not
state the time when they como duo or the
amount of the deferred paylnents. The re
verting of these lots to Douglas county will
hnvo no effect whatever upon the funds that
have been paid in for other lots in the same
addition. I think that n proceeding do novo
will bo the only sure and safe wav to place
the county In possession of these lols in sucli
n manner that no question ns to the regularity
of sale when they are finally sold could over
bo raised. "

Tlio Promising 1'rincc of Bandits on
His Way to Punishment.
William "Walking , Jr. , a special Inspector
of the postofllco department , passed through
the city yesterday enrouto to Fargo , S. D. , in
charge of William D. Xowborry , the ring
leader In ono of the most during robberies in
the annals of crime.
Ncwberry , in company with Charles E.
Bnlloy , robbed the mall car on the Northern
Pacific road near New Salem , N. D. , the
night of Juno 7 , last , nnd secured booty
amounting to about ? T , UOO.
The modus operand ! was most daring. The
robbers boarded the engine as tlio train stood
at the station nnd , covering the otiglncor nnd
fireman with their revolvers , ordered them
to pull the train out. Their orders wcro
obeyed. When about two miles from town
the train was stopped , the mall , baggngoand
express cars pulled up the road about two
miles f uithcr when they wcro stopped.
In the meantime Cowberry's" mask had
fallen from his face , but ho made no effort to
The robbers proceeded to the express car
and found It deserted , all the money being In
n largo safe with a time lock. Thus foiled ,
they turned their attention to the mail car ,
which they compelled the engineer to break
open with a pick-nxe.
Four men In the mall car wcro covered
with revolvers by Bailey , whllo Nowberry
compelled ono of the clciks to open nil the
registered pouches and put the money In n
When this had been done the party were
ordered to assist in carrying the sack up the
track about half a mile , whcro it was de
posited. The unwilling confederates were
sent back towards the train , whllo the rob
bcrs escaped In the darunoss.
Inspector Watklus happened to bo In Bis
marck nt the time , and at once got on' the
trail' of the robbers. Ho succeeded In
capturing Balloy within four days nftor
the robbery , but Nowberry gave him
a longer chaso. The latter took qulto
a trip , going by way of St. Paul , Chicago
and Montreal to Albany , thence to Washing
ton , D. C. , nnd from there to Marshal , Va. ,
his old homo , a small town nbout ninety
miles from Washington. Ho had scarcely
arrived there when ho was prounced upou by
Inspector Watklus and started on the return
trip.Ncwberry belongs to a Virginia family of
high standing. Ho Is n college graduate and ,
in nppearanco | n gentleman. Ho stands six
fcot in his stockings , weighs ISO pounds and
is'twenty-nine years of ago.
When the inspector arrested him ho was
making preparations to bo married ton voting
lady in his native town to whom ho had been
engaged for several years. The lady was
prostrated by the news of the arrest of her
betrothed and after she had bidden him good
bye she became prostrated so much so tha
her recovery was despalrca of.
Nowborry had been in the west for some
timo. Ho bore quite a good reputation except
in Mexico whcro , it is said , he Is wanted for
the murder of a native. The two had
a ilght over a girl , and Nowbcrry cu' '

The speedy capture of those two desperadoes
adoes was a remarkable piece of work and

receive a much heavier sentence , as bo was

Three more analyses of wells were sul > -
mitted. Dr. Uapcn asked Mr. W. S. Kobln- "
son , wtio had made thetn , to explain to the
board what was meant by the various items
in the analyses.
Mr. Robinson explained that free ammonia
meant dcc.iyeJ organic matter ; that albumin
oid ammonia meant decayed organic or vege
table matter. Ho said that the process of
anal ) sis was so accurate that oven 0110 pirt
in 20,000,000 could bo determined. The term
chlorine means bowago , either from
stables or animals. Drinking water
should never contain over nine parts of chlo
rine. "It Is practically an arbitrary matter
as to where you draw the Hue , " continued he ,
"as some persons nro more easily nlTecteu
than others. Oftentimes the prcsonco of
albuminoid ammonia is duo to the prcr.cncoof
u dead rat or something of the sort , nud can
often bo remedied by the cleaning out of the
well , nroviding the soil is not contaminated.
f will also say that very many chemists make
no note of the presence of chlorine , particu
larly when found in very few parts. "
Sanitary Commissioner Morrissey an
nounced that ho had found two or th'reo in
stances where parties , upon bediming the
use of city water , had proceeded to use their
old wells for privy vaults. In ono case ho
had ordered the well to bo filled.
Upon henrftig this Mr. HoDinson spoke up

Why the Itonil May Ito Extended in
General Manager Holdrego of the Burling-
ton has returned from a two weeks' trip over
the Uurllngton lines In the west nnd northwest -
west Ho spent ono week In company with
President Perkins and other olllclals of the
Chicago , Burlington & Qulncy , who have
been out on the coast.
This official visit has revived the rumors of
the Durllngtoa's plans for the construction
of n line to the northwest country. On this
point the ofllctnls are very reticent , simply
admitting that such an extension has long
boon contemplated by the lluillugton people ,
but that no definite decision has been arrived
at.Ono official , however , claimed that surveys
had been made for an extension of the road to
Helena from iiulTnlo , around the south and
west of Yellowstone park nnd through the
great sheep and cattle ranges of Montana.
The Burlington's present line in the direc
tion of Deudwood has all of the business it
can care for , and this fact strongly encour
ages the company to make further exten
sions. _ _ _
Tlio Rook. Island Extension.
Preliminary arrangomenU are being made
for the opening of the Hock Island's Omaha
extension cither on Thanksgiving or on De
cember I at latest. The tlnal tracklayiug was
completed on Friday nud connections made
with the Union 1'ucillo tracks at Soutu
Omaha on Saturday ,
A largo forte of men has boon put at work
leveling the tracks and ballasting the road
bed so that traffic may bo received on the
road in a very short time. The road touches
the Plutto near Loulsvlllo and follows the
river to North Ucnd where a crossing is
mndo ou one of the finest bridges in the state.
Tlio line then runs almost direct to Lincoln
and from the capital to a connection with the
Rock Island main line at Beatrice. ThooDi-
cials are already at work preparing a train
service for the now lino.
1C lid of tlio Itoyuot t.
As predicted In the Chicago reports on Su
unity the Chicago-Omaha roads with the ex
ception of the Burlington have granted the
demands of the Union Paclflo for a larger
porccntngo on through business from points
west of Uio Missouri Mvor. This practically
puts an end to the bdyc6lt which the eastern
connections of the Union Pacific declared
with a great flourish hut three weeks ago.
The Burlington still refuses to grant the do-
mauds , relying upon its recently Increased
facilities with the IJenvr/r & Hlo Urando for
Its fdntra of through business from the west.
Officials of tha Uurlltigton claim
that the broadguaglng of the Den
ver & Uio Grande , completed
lost week , has given the Ilurllnfcton
connections west of Denver that cnablo It lo
cut a bit ? flguro in transcontinental freight

Home-made Christmas Presents
NCE again we arc nearing the time when an inter
change of gifts , no matter how simple , indicate the
kindly feeling \vithin our hearts for loving friends ,
An article that the giver makes is certainly a more
complimentary gift than one bought , for we weave
with every stitch sweet wishes for the recipient that
untold gold cannot purchase.Vhcn sending this
silent message of love prepare the package daintily by
putting it in a neat box , and tying the .cover on with a
bit of ribbon , into which a tiny card may be slipped bear
ing loving wishes , peace and good-will in every word ,
which greeting we also extend to the large band of
readers that may find herein some charming articles
suitable to make for mementos of a glad Yule-tide.
Santa Clans is busy. He never puts off for
December what he can do in November. The heart of
the giver is in the hand-made gift of friendship. The
present which costs love's labor is far more precious than
the product of the money-purse. Several women of
skillful handicraft contribute workcd-otit ideas of beauti
ful usefulness in the
