Captain neltser has been booting the

thinks he will be In condition to hold h a
own against Koehler's excellent booter.
Frank will do Nebraska's place kicking.
The team will have Instructions to try for
goals from placement when they are within
thirty yards of the Denver goal. The fail
ure to do this In the Kansas contest prob
ably lost the game for the Cornhuskers.
With the exception of "Red" Woleott,
right guard, the Cornhuskers are In excel
lent physical condition. Woleott Is suffer
ing from a slight attack of tonsllltls, but
will be In shape to play aSturday. Frank
had a slight Injury during the fore part
of the week, but he has recovered. Johnson
sustained an Injury to his right knee In
the Kansas game and Is still bothered by
It, but will be In shape by Saturday.
Lnleas the men are hurt In practice to
morrow they will all go Into the Denver
game In Just as good condition as they
were at the time of any big game this
fall. No scrimmage will be held tomorrow.
A light signal practice will be the order
for the early part of the afternoon at the
state farm.
The Nebraska party will start for Den
ver tomorrow evening over the Burlington

ing. A squad of two elevens will be taken.
On account of the high rate for the trip

not likely to succeed.
The Nebraska club at Denver la prepar
ing to attend the game and root for the
Cornhuskers. Thero are about 200 Ne
braska alumni in and near Denver, and
they will all be on hand for the game.
The Cornhuskers will stay at the New

have a number of trees cut In Spring

which have been crippled by windstorms
and which are unsightly. In some parts
the trees are so thick that the grass will
not grow well. These are to be thinned
out. It is thougbt this work will cost the
board nothing as the sale of the wood

SWINDLER'S VICTIM FOLLOWS
HIM TEN THOUSAND MILES
Aared Man Whn Bought Stork In
Basra Gold Mine Finally
Geta ne venae.
ANDERSON, Ind., Nov. 17. Knowing
that! the bones of the men thst swindled
him of 3,W0 He bleaching In the sands
of the southern California derert, Newton
A. Grabill, a mill owner of Dalevllle, re
turned home today, after a 10,000-mile
chase, and found that his creditors, be
lieving him dead, had petitioned the Dela
ware county court to wind up his estate.
Grabill Is 72 years old.
Ons day last "June Grabill was ap
proached at his mill by a man who said
he represented a brokerage firm In Chi
cago. The stranger had prospectuses of a
geld mine In Colorado and persuaded
Gishlll that It would be a profitable in
vestment for his savings.
Grabill gave the man 13.500 In cash snd
made an appointment to meet him In In
dianapolis and turn over the remainder of
the amount he Intended to Invest.
At Indianapolis Grabill lsarned that he
had been tricked. Angry, he took up the
trail of the swindler. First It led to Bt.
Louis and then to Denvsr. From that
city to New Mexico and Arizona Grabill
followed. The confidence man knew the
victim was on his track and he doubled
through the southwestern states.
At length the swindler crossed the bor
der Into Mexico, with which country bs
evidently was familiar. Grabill engaged
a Mexican detective and the two followed
the swindler Into the California desert.
The pursuit wore Grabill out and he
stopped, but the detective pressed on.
Within a few weeks the detective re
turned to Grabill and gave Mm proof that
he had caught up with the swindler at a
lonely ranch house; that they fought and
that he shot the swindler dead. His body
was burled in the desert.
Satisfied that In this final deal he was
getting his money's worth, Grabill paid
the detective and set out for Indiana.
