raised on Fourteenth "street north of Far

the water company supply pressure suf
ficient to send eight one-Inch streams to a
height of 110 feet, and that It must be done
at the same time.
"Not a single stream at any time reached
a height of 110 feet," said Engineer Wil
liams. "At times the spray of one, and
sometimes two, streams mounted higher
than 110 feet, but It was the Impulse and
not the stream Itself that reached the re

proves that the contract Is not being filled
In this condition. I estimate that the av
erage height of the streams during most
of the time will be found not much more
than eighty feet."
Ho Stream Hlarn Enouarh.
The three engineers agreed that except
occasionally no stream got as high aa 110
feet and that no more than two of the
eight streams cast spray above 110 feet at
any one time.
'To supplement the observations from the
roof the engineers will compute estimates
on the showing made by the water gauges
attached to the nozzle of one line of hose
from each hydrant. Four hydrants were
used, two streams being sent from each.
These hydrants were the nearest ones to
the Intersection. The one on Farnam street
between Thirteenth and Fourteenth had
250 feet of hose for each nozzle and the
pressure ran from sixty-six to sixty-four
feet; the hydrant on Farnam between
Fourteenth and Fifteenth had 300 feet of
hose and registered from seventy-four to
seventy-one pounds pressure; the hydrant
at the northwest corner of Fourteenth and
Farnam showed a pressure running from
slghty-four to eighty feel at the end of fifty
feet of hose; the hydrant on Fourteenth
between Farnam and Douglas with 150 feet
of-hose marked up a pressure of from
eighty to seventy-six pounds on the gauge.
Weather Condition Perfect.
Weather conditions were perfect and
there were no perceptible air currents.
Stockton Heth, treasurer of the water
company, declared that the pressure was
not accelerated In any way, but remained
the same as usual.
Governor Boyd, chairman of the Water
board, most of the members and other city
officials witnessed 'the test from the street.
Fire Chief Salter personally superintended
the work of hose companies 3, 4 and t from

BEATRICE. Neb.. Sept. 21. (8peclat.)
Mrs. Margaret Utter, living on East High
street, has Just returned from Garnett,
Kan., where she went to visit a sister
whom she had never seen and of whose ex
istence she had no knowledge until a few
weeks ago. The story reads like a ro
mance. In the year 1873. near Indepen
dence, Kan., lived the family of Cabel
Piper, consisting of father, mother and
three children, the! oldest a boy of 7 named
Samuel, and two little girls, the elder I
and the younger a babe of only 11 months.
Like many others, he met with reverses at
that time. He was a man well advanced in
years, his wife being much younger than
himself. To double his misfortunes he
suffered a stroke of paralysis and his wife
was unable to maintain the family. Under
these conditions the children were given
homes with friends, while Mr. Piper went
to live with his son by a former marriage.
Belle, the older girl, was adopted by T. C.
Brunson and has been reared and educated
as though she were their own daugbter,
she being the only child In the family. The
younger of the two girls was adopted Into
the family of Captain Carroll, who at that
time lived at Independence, but who re
moved to Beatrice a short time afterward.
bringing the little girl with them, where
she was reared and educated in the schools
of Beatrice as Margaret Carroll. Captain
Carroll died some years after coming to
Beatrice and Mrs. Carroll and Margaret
removed to Chicago. As Mrs. Utter's foster
parents were very fond of her, she being
the only child, they never told her of her
adoption. After her marriage she again be
came a resident of Beatrice, and it was by
accident that she learned of her real fam
ily history and discovered her identity,
Mrs. Utter, after learning that she had
a sister, has been trying to locate her for
some time, but as she had changed her
name by marriage the task was not an
easy one. Less than a month ago she
finally succeeded In locating her sister at
Garnett, Kan., and hastened there to meet
her. The two sisters will now attempt to

Railroad Gets Right-of-way.
BLAIR, Neb., Bept. 21. (Special.) At
meeting of the city council last night an
order was passed granting the right-of-way
for a spur switch from the main track of
the Minneapolis St Omaha railroad to the
canning factory, owned and operated by
Martin ft Nurrle. . Though not on the same
location, this is the same switch contro
versy that the city and the railroad com
pany had a fight over during the term of
W. D. Haller as mayor a few years ago.
At that time the railroad officers had their
men run a large amount of material Into
the yards here and at night put on a large
force of men and had the track laid by 12
o'clock, when Mayor Haller ordered the
fire company out to drown out the entire
force of workmen and take up the track
and stack the rails and ties, which ended
the attempt to lay It at that time. The
right-of-way granted now will not damage
any private property, which was claimed at
the time before, and will be a great con
venience to the factory.
