Dr. rilnl's Hypnotism.
Dr. Herbert Flint began his second week
ot hypnotism at the opera house last even
ing , and surprised , mystified and delighted
the audience even more than ho did during
his lirst engagement hero last winter. Ho
is assisted by his daughter , Miss Marina , a
handsome young lady , who has developed
the mystic power to an extent almost equal
to her father , and during the llrst part of
the evening she managed the "subjects" un
assisted by tlio doctor. All the subjects
operated upon were called from the nud-
ienco , Ono or two of those who proved to
bo susceptible last winter responded to the
Invitation to como upon the stage , but the
majority of them were new , and their comic
alities kept the house In an uproar all oven-
ing. Dr. Flint's entertainment is more re ;
lined than it was last winter , his power ap
parently having become finer and keener.
None of the features that were used to such
excellent purpose last winter were intro
duced last night , and the doctor and His
handsome daughter promise a complete
change of program each oven'ng. ' Tht
week's entertainment will conclude Sunday
night with a spiritualistic seance.

SookliiK Fact * on 1'rolilblUon.
The royal commissioners from Canada , on
a tour of the western states to see how pro
hibition works und report results to the
Dominion Parliament , requested by letter
an Interview on the subject from Mr. Ed
ward Hosewater , and yesterday by appoint
ment they called on him nnd were given his
views on how prohibition has worked in
Kansas , loxva and Nebraska , backed by con
crete and instructive facts. After the meet
ing , which was lengthy as the talk was ex
haustive , Commissioner Gigault declared
that ho and his colleagues had derived more
real instruction on the subject matter of
their inquiry than they had anywhere else
received : ho was particularly struck
with the force of Mr. IJosewater's
remark that prohibition states in this
country differed from others in
that the sign of the saloon
keeper had there given way to iho sign of
the drugtrist , but that inside the stores were
almost identical. The commissioners had
visited Council Bluffs and the force and
truth of Mr. Kosewater's statement had
ocular demonstration.
Unfortunately the leading prohibitionist
of the commission , Dr. McLeod tof New
Brunswick , was not present , being confined
to his room at the Millard. The commis
sioners leave today to visit cities and towns

Tlio South Omalin. city council mot last
night mid , nllhoughr it tool : several hours ,
considerable routine business was trans *
acted. "
In regard to the opening up of O street
from Twentieth to Fourteenth , Mr. BulU ,
as chairman of committee , recommended
that the petition bo not granted , and his re
port was adopted. The proposition to open
up V street from Twenty-seventh to Hall-
road nvenuo hns not yet been acted on.
Srtiultz asked further time on the ilro ap
paratus purchases. Uulla reported tnat on
Wednesday or Thursday the committee
would meet with the street car company and
urge the completion of the line across the Q
street viaduct.
Mr. Wyinan introduced a resolution allow
ing City Attorney Van Dusen $20 per month
for oftlcc rent and 915 a month for typewrit
ing service. Adopted.
.Property owners on P street between
Twenty-fourth nnd Twenty-fifth , petitioned
that P street ho cut to grade at once.
A petition was rer.d to have Q street
grn.led from Seventeenth to Twentieth.
At n recent meeting a petition was re
ferred to the city attorney in regard to con
demning a certain lot as a nuisance. The
attorney referred back the matter , as ho be-
liovcd It the duty of the committee from the
council to llrst ascertain whether or not a
nuisance existed. Ho would then advise as
to the legality of condemning the lot.
' . .railing Contract Vetoed.
The mayor returned with his veto the
contract of Cash Bros , for the grading of
West S. T and V streets from Thirty-sixth to
Fortieth streets. His reason was that the
bond was not satisfactory. Heferred to com
mittee on streets and the city attorney.
A communication was read from the mayor
iii regard to the neglect on the part of the
mayor ana city council in not approving the
) ends of saloon keepers , and suggested that
this matter should be carefully attended to
n the future.
City Attorney Van Dusen reported on the
dntoago claim of Anna Cain , stating that as
; he amount was so largo no action could betaken
taken , and he recommended that the com
munication simply be placed on lllo in the
'ity clerk's ofllce.
The chief of police was Instructed to
notify Dan O'Ncil , who is building a barn at
the west end of the L , street viaduct , to box
a aitch ho has cut at that place.
A hill of $40 was allowed Thomas Hector.
The electric light company's bill of f310.Ul
was allowed.
Mr. Freeman appeared before the council
ind gave some facts , ln regard to the pro-
rosed opening up of Archer avenue. He
ivas opposed to it , and stated that no prom
ise whatever had been made to those who
jought land there in the past. The line of
the proposed street.ismow an alley , and the
petitioners ask that it be widened nnd made
i street. City Attorney Van Dusen-stated
that it was left with the discretion of the
: nayor and city council whether or not any
street was opened ; but the city could not bo
nandamused to do so , meithcr would it bo
.iablo to damagesin case it did not exercise
the right of eminent domain ; that the poi
sons who bought there did so knowing aho
condition of the , streets and alleys , ana
therefore were responsible for their present
condition. MaxwcU & Freeman own the
lots along Archer aveii.ue and as the lots are
now only eighty feet deep they say it would
ruin them entirely to cut oft forty feet for a
street. The council went i.ito committee of
the whole , but thc.inatter went over for one
week. 11 r

Nclinmku'g I'roxnorous
NOHFOI.K , Nob. , &IAVM. [ Special to THE
Bnc. ] Madison eputjjy , situated in the
northeastern part ofitho state , is twenty-
four miles square and Contains SM.WO acres
of land of which ( ftxjujf 70 per cent is undoi
cultivation , showing n remarkable acreage
of tillable land. The average price of land
will run from $20 to (30 per acre , according
to distance from town and improvements
It is settled principally by Germans and
Americans with n sprinkling who date thcli
ancestry from the Emerald Island. The
county contains about 20,000 people , tholi
principal products being corn , oats , sugai
beets , wheat and barley , while most of the
farmers are engaged in ft small way In rais
ing cattle and hogs , which they nnd yorj
nrofitable.and instead of shipping tholr graic
it is nearly all consumed upon the farm.
Three direct lines of railroads runninj
through their county give them close com
raunication with the outer world , and belnf
close to Omaha they are in condition to tak <
advantage of tna markets there upon a feu
hours notice. The Union Pacilie' , Fremont
Elkhorn & Missouri Valley and Chicago. Ht
Paul , Minneapolis & Omaha take tocn
ulckly to Omaha , Lincoln or Sioux City , bo *
Ides being quite an Income to the county In
ho way of taxes. The Vnnkton , Norfolk &
southwestern Is now under contract and will
> o completed to thU city about September 1 ,
bus giving them a direct outlet to the him *
) cr districts and the lake region ? ftddIng to
heir already excellent market facilities nn
outlet for coal , lumber and salt and -their
grain , stock and manufactured articles. The
ounty now has eighty-one miles for taxable
nirposcs and this new road will give them
twenty miles more. The principal towns
nnd trading points of the county are Nor-
blk , Madison ( the county scat ) , Battle
-rock , Meadowgrovc , Newman's Grove ,
\\nrrcnvillo and Tildcn. Madison county is
ncssed with some noted politicians. United
states Senator Allen resides nt Madison ,
itato Auditor Eugene Moore Is a resident of
his city , where ho enjoys the confidence
nnd respect of nil , bo they republicans , demo
crats or populists. State Senator Halo lives
nt Battle Creek and Hcprcscntatlvo l.ulk-
irt nt Tildcn , so the honors , as regards
'olltlcal position la concerned , arc scattered
over the county in such a way that gives
irotnlnonco to all portions. Judge Robinson ,
Jr. Bear and many other gentlemen of note
through the state are here , and Madison
county always sends good men to the dif
ferent political gathering.
I'lio city of Norfolk 1ms been made what
she Is by thu push And energy of her citizens
mill now It numbers upwards of1,00(1 ( souls ,
and she Is still forcing ahead , determined to
Jccome the railroad center of the northwest
nd the loading manufacturing city of the
North Plat to country.
Situate on the Norfolk branch of the
iilkhorn river , it has a fine water power ,
veil developed , beautiful lakes , nice groves ,
excellent water nnd good drainage facilities ,
uid being n railroad center is headquarters
or n largo number of traveling men. The
-itizens nnd Norfolk National and Norfolk
3tato banks look after the people's financial
utercsts ; they are strong banks , doing con
servative business , and seem to enjoy the
confidence of the public. The traveling
) iiblic Is well cared for by two llrst-
class hotels : with a third one , the
J.xtmrd , nearly completed , there will
) o no further need of ' making the
> oor cuss climb two pairs of stairs , 'shoved
nto a side room and told it overlooks the
court , and you discover a tin roof , the
citchcn linfull vlow , with an oven half-dozen
slop barrels to give fragrance to the air
should you dare open thu lone window ,
which you must do if you want to see out.
I'hd Elkhorn road maintains a freight and
Kisaonger 'division hero , which means from
seventy-live to 100 employes located hero all
the time.
A brick and tile works hero employ fifty
nen nine months in the year. An iron
foundry employs tourteemi on.
Three line school bulldimrs , with eighteen
.cachors and the superintendent , care for
the educational interests of about 7f > 0 chil-
Ircn. A fine volunteer fire department is
naintalncd , consisting of four hose coni-
lanlcs and ono hook and ladder company ,
with a total membership of i-io.
One daily and four weekly newspapers are
equirod to give the people hero the infor-
nation they require , nnd Judging from the
ulvertislng and general appearance they
are all in a prosperous condition. The nnily
ind weekly News , which is a strong repub-
Ican publication , is owned and managed by
\V. N. Huso , and is now erecting a two-
story brick building where the News will
soon be quartered as n permanent home.
Iho other papers are the Herald , demo
cratic , by A. A. Parks : the Journal , repub-
lean , which has recently been pur
chased by Sprechcr and Foster , and the
Anzcigcr , a Gorman , democratic paper by
Herman Brommond.
Ono of the state insane asylums is located
icrc , and perhaps owing to the limited ap
propriations , is not as well patronized as it
has been in the past , there cing only fifty-
nine women and 110 men as inmates.
A now enterprise of some dimensions is
ibout to open out upon the people hero li
the way of a largo distillery. A largo eas
tern company , through J. Turner , lias made
the citizens a proposition that in considera
tion of fiSjOOO they , the company , will erect
a plant to consist of eight brick buildings ,
three frame buildings , and suitable cattle
sheds , with a capacity of consuming 2,000
bushels of grain per day , to cost not less
than $185,000 and to be coriiploted by Decem
ber 1,18'jy. The amount has all been sub
scribed except $1,000 , and that has been
guaranteed , so it looks as if kit. Turner's
company were ready the people here will
sco grain converted into whisky.
A wholesale liquor , beer and cigar house
located hero two years ago and Is doing a
line business , employing two salesmen on
the road. Tha mayor , II. C. Matran , is ono
of the leading citizens and socms to keep
the government running smooth , and H. C.
Millignn keeps his records up in good shape
ana must bo givimr satisfaction , as he is
now serving on his fourth term.
Evidences of thrift and prosperity are
seen on every bant ! , both in the city and
country , and towns making more pretcn-
tions must look well to their work this sum
mer for Norfolk is pushing bard for fifth
place in the galaxy of the cities of Nebraska.
