In his stead.
Howard Laubach, manager of the Twin
City Express company, was the lntervenor
and It wa he who, through his over
enthusiasm for friendship's sake, almost
went behind the bars.
Mr. Laubach was walking quietly along
South Sixteenth street Wednesday evening
on Ms way to prayer meeting at the
Castellar Street church. While on his way
he overtook the. police officer on that beat,
with whom he is slightly acquainted.

swung around and started to express his
mind. .Tha prisoner, however, beat him to
it. "Why, hello." he exclaimed. "How are

About that time Mr. Laubach discovered
that th prisoner was not Mr. Parker; that

he learned this and Mr. Laubach had to do
some ingenious talking before he was al

W. R. Cahlll, superintendent of the Ne
braska division of the Union Pacific, re
turned from a trip from the western points
of his division Thursday. Mr. Cahlll states
that the big talk about the Nebraska crops
being ruined or even hurt to any extent Is
not to be believed, as there ure hopes for
the largest corn yield that the state ever
had. Small crops are only doing fairly
well, but the only thing that has really suf
fered In his opinion along the lines of the
Union Pacific are the hay fields and
"Crops all over the state looked to be
In fine shape to me and I think that an
average crop or larger will be harvested
this ye.ir. There are Indeed a few bad
places but the general run of the corn Is
so good that this will be easily made up."
"Many people are surprised t the targe
yield of wheat Nebraiika' had this year In
spite of the bad weather, but the fact that
there was a greater acreage- than usual
planted must be taken Into consideration.
Potatoes are In good condition everywhere
and the sugar beet crop, although the dry
weather has been hard on it, will, with
the Increased acreage, come up to the
"The only damage that amounts to any
thing serious Is Che dry condition of the
pastures and meadows and the shortness
of the hay crop. The recent rains have
done some good to the grass, but the hay
will b small In comparison to last year."
More Hnln Falls.
Rain fell again In Nebraska Wednesday
night, heavy downpours having been re
ported In several places out in the state
and In the southern part of South Dakota.
This, with the showers the first part of
the week, ought to be sufficient for the
corn for a week or ten days.
From Long Pine to Nickerson, and from
Gordon to Alnsworth, on the Northwestern
road, heavy rains fell, and also west of
Fremont at several points. On the Bone
steel and Albion lines and at Bella Fourche,
S. D., fairly heavy showers were felt dur

On the Union Pacific an Inch of rain
fell at Grand Island, continuing as far

fell, the high mark of one and one-quarter

Mnrshal Warner s staff will be entitled to
a certificate as a full-fledgi-e cowboy when
he return from the vicinity of Brady,
Neb. He was given a court order to go
out on the prairie and cut out of a big
herd of cattle 400 head, bearing the Lasy
8 bar brand. The order was Issued In
the case of the Bosserman-Gates Live
Stock and Loan company against the
Platte Valley Cattle company of Gothen
burz. When Sarnmona arrived at the scene of
operation he found a pasture of about
8.500 acres over which the cattta herd was
roaming. To get any start at all, he wasl
compelled to hire cowboys, buy provisions,
(et a cook wngon In fact, organize a
regular outfit. This he proceeded to do,
at the coat of the plaintiff company.
With this round-up outfit, Hammons
started over the range. After diligent
search by day and a close watch by

boys succeeded In finding only 280 head ot
cattle bearing the Lazy 3 brand, and he

the supply of "well bred Texas cattle,
horned and dehorned," according to the
wording of the court order, gammons ap

who brought In an estimate that the feO
head cut out are worth JB,51.60. And
gammons awaits further orders as to the
balance of the 400.
