- There are two stories In regfl to the mata -

Lincolil was before the mombers. The measure -
uro was 'Introduced by Lamborn of fled Wi-
low. There were two reports , majority and
minority , from the committee on ngrcul-
ture. The minority report was signEd by
Chnco of Stanton , who recommended In-
donnlo postponem Time majority favored
" time general file when It could be discussed
In commitee of the whole. Sutton and
Johnston of Douglas and Chnce made strong
arguments In favor of the minorIty report.
The mlhorlty report was voted down but
the vote Is by no means 1 test of strength
; In the hOlse , but simple courtesy to the com-
mItee on agriculture. A majority of those

ire appropriating $80.000 to complete the

alone Is now nn employo of the house In
another capacity , but he claims that the
way bills have been passed so far In time
session ho could have completed , single

employes have been engaged upon. This
means , at least , an unnecessary expense to

days of the sessIon expired.

Miss Lulu Harrington by her mother , Mrs. !
Olive A. Ilarrington med n suIt for breach I
of promise agaInst Philip Manger , and nsk-
Ing for $5.000 dnmages. Miss Harrington Is
1 minor between IG and"lli , years of nge.
She alleges that she became englged to
Manger November 17. H04. Itelring upon
this engagement she had remained single.
Manger , however , had jilted her and married
another lady last month In Doonvle , Mo.
The young lady refused to talk voluminously
about the cafe , but saId that PhIlip bad ap-
prised 'her of his contemplated marriage , but
that she had refused to release him from
his engagement to her. Miss Uarrlngton Is
a tal , good looking brunette , thid has re-
sided In the city about six monthis.
CASE OF MENTAL ABERRATION.
A mysterious case of mental aberration
has developed nt the State university. Miss
Louise Laurizen Is a student who has
been intermittently registered for abolt th' ee
years For some tme the faculty and stu-
dents havO been exercIsed over her peculiar
actions. On various times she has occa-
stoned disturbances In the classes Her pe-
cularites have been most noticeable on
windy days , or when the clements were
turbulent. Occasionaly she persists In taking -
Ing down her hair and dressing I during
class time. Chancellor Canneld II\s lt last
been compelled to ask her to wihdrw
from the classes hopIng to lear the , , hereabouts -
abouts of her frIends "In order that they
might be advIsed In the premIses. hitherto
she has steadfastly refused to give their
names or place of resldenco. They are sup-
posed to live at or near Grand Island. Lt
plght MIss Lauritzen visited the chnncelor
nt his office and became frantic over what
seemed to her unwarranted perzecutiomm.
Apparently she thought that time hand , of every -
cry one was against her and hinted at sui-
cIde. For over an hour the chancellor reasoned -
soned with tier and had consIderable dlm-
culy In persuading her to lenve. Much
sympathy Is manifested for the young lady
by students and faculty.
