LINCOLN. July 18.-Speclal.)-Secre-tary"
Henry SeynTour of the equalization
board sent out a hurry up call this morn
ing tv the .counties that have not yet re
ported tneir assessments. They are
Custer, Dawson,. Dodge. Morrill, Scott's
itiurr, Stanton, Box Butte, Thomas and
Lancaster. , 1
Under the law all counties should have
had their reports in not later than Julv
10. , The law, requires county boards to
hold their sessions not less than three
dars, nor more than twenty, which would
give time for assessors to Bet their' re
ports in the hands of the secretary, of
me sxaie ooara. ine county boards are
required to convene .the "first Tuesday
after the second Monday In June," which
this year fell ort June 11, and which would
make the limit they could be in session
July. 1. The failure to send in reports is
delaying the work of the state board and
secretary Seymour therefore was com
pelled to send out the "get busy" cry.
1 Roy Templeton, a trusty, who was re
ceived at the penitentiary from Thurston
county last January,' escaped this morn
ing by climbing the prison wall. Temple
ton had. been allowed to sleep in the barn
so as to feed the horses before the other
convicts were up. He is a large man,
weighing something like 175 pounds, five
feet eleven niches high. A few days ago
Templeton" mailed a letter enclosing a
check to a woman in Lincoln and it Is
supposed he went to her house, where
she had provided him with clothes so hs
could pass as an ordinary citizen, and
probably left on an early train this morn
Adjutant General Phelps Is having a lit
tle trouble over the matter of transpor
tation for the guard to. the maneuvers
at Pole Mountain, the railroads refusing
to grant the one and a third round trip
rate unless the cash accompanies the or.
dler for the transportation. General
Phelps sent a telegram to the War de
partment this morning explaining the sit
uation and making a suggestion which
may' make smoother sailing. It has been
decided to fill the vacancy in the FJrst
regiment composed of two companies by
sending G of Omaha and K of Schuyler of
the Second regiment

SIDEWALK IMPROVEMENT '
CAMPAIGN IN MINDEN
MINDEN, July 18. Special.)-Minden

were built in Minden In 1904 much side-
GRAY HAIR MADE DARK
f' ' '
If You Want to Darken It, This Sim-
pie Formula Will Do It
. ; Nicely.
I There are few people In this world
who are satisfied with gray hair
when it appears - In their own dark
'. locks. Most of us want to get rid of
it, ana this simple recipe, which can be
readily made up at home, is about the
surest, most satisfying means that
could possibly be employee to change
the gray locks to a soft, nice, glossy
brown. To 7 oss. of water add one
small box of Barbo Compound, one .
of bay rum and one-fourth ounce of
, glycerine. Any drug store can supply
: the Ingredients at little cost and you
, can do your own mixing. Apply It to
the grayhair or beard once a week
until the desired "dark shade is obtained,-
then once every two weeks will
be sufficient. It is equally as meritor
ious for removing dandruff and other
ills of the scalp and for promoting the
growth of the hair. Tou will be highly
pleased when you see how admirably
this simple mixture will eradicate the
traces of age in your hair and how free
it is from the objectionable features -of
the ordinary dyes, stains, etc
walk has been constructed each year.
Many places in the city have on account
of the good condition of old walks or
other reasons been omitted. This spring
the city council passed an ordinance re
quiring the laying, of about 8,000 lineal
feet of - sidewalk In - addition to about
thirty crossings In the residence, distrlet
and sixteen six-foot crossings In the busi
ness center. Much of this walk Is . re
quired to fill in missing links. ' The side
walks and crossings - will cost about
$6,000. . ': , .
, THE REJECTED RISK.
The man who has been rejected for
life Insurance, learns something In the
twinkling of an eye that no one could
ever teach 'him. Heretofore he has
thought of life Insurance, as some
thing he could take at any time-Just
as he could take a journey- or buy a
new suit of clothes. He had been so
often solicited to insure that it seemed
as if he must be doing everybody a
favor in making a tardy application.
What a shock and what 'a revelation,
when the agent tells him . ine. company
cannot accept him. He knows the
company wants business. Why, then,
is he declined? There must be some
good reason, and there Is.' In most
cases he simply waited too long. He
cannot blame ' the agent or' the com
pany. Whose fault will It be if you,
now in good health, later are declined?
