exposition of the National Horticultural
congress is nigh, in fact that It will be

Nedless to ssy that with the opening
of the big fruit show so close at hand
the Auditorium was a bupy place yester
day and will be until the (rates are thrown
open to the public Monday morning. Sev
eral of the larger exhibits have already
been unloaded and are being Installed and
the same Is true of the individual and
smaller displays. The work of the deco

It will eclipse thst of last year, both in
quantity and quality of the displays. With
the experience gained from the first ex
po.'ltlon the management this year has
been able to better arrange the space for
the displays and every Inch of floor has
bien apparently utilized to the very best
Exhibit from Texas.
The exhibit of the Texas Citrus Growers'
association, with headquarters In Houston,
has been assigned what might aptly be
termed the place of honor, as its Interest

Auditorium. This exhibit of the semi-
tropical products of that section of the
country Is In charge of C. S. Canada arid
E. F. Stockwell. and they, like the rest of
the exhibitors on the ground, were busily
engaged yesterday in installing their dis
play. Features of this display from the
stale of Texas are an orange tree loaded
with ripe fruit of the Satsuma variety,
which Is a product Indigenous to that sec
tion. Alongside of the Satsuma tree is
another tree with its branches laden with
what to the uninitiated looks like s small,
undeveloped orange that for some reason
or another had become stunted In Its youth.
It Is. In fact, a species of orange, but one
that Is unknown to probably nearly every
cltlsen of this section of the country. The
fruit is known as the "kumquat," and
while " it' lacks the Juice of the ordinary
succulent orange, It la said to be good to
eat and to preserve. The display Includes
.several varieties of orange, grape fruit,
lemons, rice, sugar, cane and other semi-
tropical products. As decorative features
the exhibit will Include several arborvltae
trees and several specimens of the "kid
lasamine." This exhibit, as a whole, prom
Ises to be one of the attractive and Inter
esting features of the fruit show.
Nebraska; Well Represented.

In this year's fruit show and Its repre

installing the splendid exhibit from that
state. The exhibit is In charge of C. fl

feet of space, will Include apples of many
varieties, pears, grapes, nuts and other
fruits. This exhibit will occupy the two
long tables directly to the right of the
main entrance. Idaho, which made such
splendid showing last year. Is here with
another splendid exhibit. The exhibit from
this state will, It Is expected, be the largest
to be shewn hers this year. It Is In
charge of J. F. Carr of Council, Idaho,
and it will occupy the entire space under
the gallery on the north side of the Audi
torium building proper. Mr. Carr was
anxiously looking yesterday for the ar
rival' of the last three cars containing the
Idaho exhibit. They are expected to reach
here this morning.
Prof. W. N. Hutt of Raleigh, N. C,
arrived yesterday with ths exhibit from
that state. Prof. Hutt Is .state horticul

charge, while not so large as that from
other states, will be a most Interesting
and attractive one.
The first of the Colorado exhibit arrived
yesterday. Apples are the only fruit from
that state unloaded thus far. Supertn

that a fine exhibit from Durango, Colo.
was scheduled to reach Council Bluffs to

Solicitor Kimball prepare a petition to bs
circulated among the owners of Broadway
property between Scott street and the
crossing between Main and Fourth streets,
aeking for ths repavement of that portion
of the thoroughfare. Unless something
happens the mayor will circulate the peti
tion today -so as to have It ready to pre
sent to the city council at Its meeting Mon
The petition as drawn by the city so
licitor at the mayor's Instance, calls for
repavement of the central portion of the
street with vitrified pressed brick on
six-inch concrete base, while the gutters
on both sides of the street for a space of
four feet from the curbs, are to be re
paved with the granite blocks with which
Broadway Is now paved.
It has been suggested to use some as

when the petition Is circulated, the senti

would add slightly to the cost, but would

yHICAGO. Nov. 13 Henry Brodenheyer,
a Jeweler of Madison, Wis., who was
found dead near his home in the summer
of 1906. and who was believed to have betn
murdered by a robber, was killed by his
wife, Margaret, now a patient at the Dunning-,

fession made today by the daughter, Clara
Brodenheyer, to Assistant Chief of Police
Schuettler of Chicago. The g:rl, who Is H
years old, related how sho had aided In
disposing of the body and how the crime
had driven her mother insane. The con
fession followed months of Investigation
conducted by Chlcego detectives after Mrs.
Brodenheyer and her daughter had come
from Madison to Chicago to get away from
the scene of the crime.
Miss Brodenheyer. who swooned In
Schuettler's office after the confess on, was
removed by order of Assistant Chief
Scbutller to the home of friends. She has
not been arrested and probably will not
be prosecuted because of her confession.

Mother and daughter returned home and
next day Mrs. Brodenheyer reported to
the police that her husband had left home
with a strange man In a buKgy. The
Madlscq police discovered the buggy sev

them that Brodenheyer had been killed

authorities to ask aid of the Chicago police.
A few months after the tragedy Mrs.
Brodenheyer suld her husband's stora and
she and Clara came to Chicago to live.
Chicago detectives kept track of there

says that no relief can be afforded north
branch towns on ths Creston A Cumber
land lines at present, that the Income from
this, line at present Is not sufficient to
vi t riant i ddwl expense of regular passen
ger traffic. He says no formal complaint
has ever been made to the State Railroad
board, but complaints had been made to
officials of the company by patrons of
the road, and as all branch service was
now receiving attention, he had taken up
this matter himself and thinks It Impos
sible to make any Improvement at present.
From this It is Inferred that until some
formal complaint la filed with the com
missioner the north branch towns will
have to accept the Inevitable. But recently
the committees from those towns have been
busy and have laid a formal complaint
with the commissioners. Just what action
may be expected later Is hard to predict.
