The financial failure of Contractor John
NeHune of Aurora, and his taking ad
vantage of the bankruptcy law, will make
little difference In the work of construction
on the high school building at thla place.
Neptune had this and several other big
contracts on his hands at the time of his
failure; but the. Broken Bow undertaking
was further advanced than the others and
suffered little In. co,useaufo. The high
school building Is now within two weeks of
completion and the work has not been In
terrupted In any way. but Is going steadily
forward. Neptune threw up the contract
nd the trustees, of course, look to the
trut companj that furnished the bonds
to do Its share toward keeping things In
operation and paeparlng the. Institution tor
occupancy. The new structure, when com
pleted, will taks Its place among the up-to-date
high school buildings of the state.
No convenience for the benefit of ad
vanced students has been overlooked, while
the location Is one cf the most Unliable

arrival of Dr. Dan R. Rogers th
local physician, prevented on of the worst
accidental tragedies that has happened In
this county for several years.
, The family of Nels P. Johnson, who lives
about four miles west of here ate their
morning meal together, the husband going
to the field. Mm. Johnson noticing that
the heating stov was not drawing as It
should, attempted to move It. Th fire
was almost nut and the stove practically
cold. Poon after she had removed the pipe
the younger of the children became uncon
sclotrs. While working with this child one
after another , of the children apparently
fainted.. She would run to the door and
scream for help and then return to her
children. When Mr. Johnson returned from
tho field, at noon he found his children
unconscious and his wife almost hysterical.
He Immediately started for a doctor, noti
fying the neighbors on the' way. Dr.- Rogers
hurried to the home to find the mother and
children unconscious. He Immediately dis
covered the cause when he noticed the un
Jolnted pipe, although the odor of escaping
gas was not noticeable and had not been
detected-by the neighbors who had . as
sembled, on after another were rentored
to consciousness after from three to five
hours' work and all will recover.

Cold Storage of rood.
Immediately after the holidays, 6enator
Heyburn, chairman of the committee on
manufactures In tlT senate, will endeavor
to secure action upon his blH to control
and govern the cold storage of foods In
th United States.
The cold storage problem Is one which
has created a great deal of comment since
pubHp attention has been ao graphically
called, to too hlgta-ooat of living.. AIL sort
of demands hav been mad upon congress
to enact legislation for the regulation of
cold storage, and many wild and chimeri
cal schemes have been outlined. Much t
the apparent astonishment of everyone,
the packing houses and other owners of
cold storage plants hav not, up to th
present time shown any very marked
sire to antagonli these bills.
One cold storage man from Kansas who
was here a day or two ago and who says
he annually handles J.OM.0W. pounds of
chickens and almost as many dosen eggs,
Insists that no cold storage warehouse
will care to - carry food products longer
than twelve months, for the reasons: First,
that a longer period than one year would'
not be profitable; second, that . after a
year animal food rapidly lose weight, and.
third, that men having their money In
vested In such foods cannot afford to tie
UP their funds for a longer period. H says
that any act of congress providing for the
control of cold storsge plants should, flrat
of all, provide for the examination of all
foods when they are plsced In storsge,
with a view to ascertaining their whole
somenese. as It Is only those foods which
have begun to decay that are Injuriously
affected by storage.
There Is no doubt whatever that con
gress Is. In the mood at present to enact
radical legislation Upon this subject, and
the danger lies In th fact the with such
an antagonistic feeling toward stored foods,
which now exists throughout the country,'
the legislation enacted may be far too
Hobs Campalara laactlv.
Wbll there has been little don In th
way of campaigning for th offices of th
house up to the present time, it Is quit
likely that Immediately after the holiday
reces a number of gentlemen, who have
served their country faithfully as members
In the house In the past, will appear on
the scene to try to convince their former
colleagues that they ar th beat .qualified
to hold th four Important offices under
th hnu organisation. Former congress
men IJvlngaton of Georgia, Trimble ot
Kouth Carolina and W. H. Ryan of Buffalo,
N. Y., are regarded as th most likely
candidates to be chosen for. tkre of the
Important house office. Mr. IJvlngaton
Is willing to accept either th elerkshlp
or the seigeant-at-arms or th door keeper
ship, while Mr. Ityan and Mr. Trimble
are underxtood to be candidates only for
the clerkship. Ryan is a man. who In hli

annual dinner for members held at the
Omaha club Saturday night, "everal bal
lots wer neoessary -before th election
could be settled, as the field of candidate
was quite large and no one could get a
majority. These three directors will meet
probably within the next week and choose
officers for the club for next year. Six
of the board of director hold over and
W. J. Foye Is a former member who was
re-elected. The six who continue In office
are: C. S. Montgomery. J. R. Scoble,
Frank Colpetzer, F. H. Galnee, W. A.
ilerilck and F. J. Burkley.
Judge Redlck Is now president of the
club and may be chosen again, and Frank
Colpetzer Is said to be a candidate.
The annual report, which was presented
to the members In printed form before the
dinner, which followed ths election of offi
cers, shows that the club has financial
dealings that amount to about $30,000 a
year In Income and disbursements. A new
plan of having a manager for the club
house has resulted In a great saving, as
the cafe loss for 1910 was about $1,100,
against U.ViO for 1909. and the buffet, which
lost $52$ last year, made $7M profit. The
club also spent less money on golf this
year and the loes due to maintaining that
sport was only $3,175. Last year It was
more than W.000. y
