Nebraska got its first frost of the
season Tuesday night, but it was over
a limited area between long Pine and
Chadron. Elsewhere temperatures ranged
from H to B degrees above sero, wtth,
indications that a warmer wave was
coming ever the mountains and moving
Along the Bonesteel line of the North
western in South Dakota and In the
Black Hills there was a freeae, the tem
perature getting down to about de
grees above. From Long Pine to Chadron
In many places the frost was of the kill
ing variety, -but as there Ig little corn
raised in that section of the state it Is
felt that the greatest damage was to
vegetables and gardens.
Higher Temperatures Soatb.
Along the railroad lines south of the
Northwestern temperatures were higher
than during the previous night and be
sides there were heavy clouds that acted
as a blanket, keeping away the eold.
The report of close to a bumper crop
throughout . northern Nebraska and the
further' report that it is well advanced
is confirmed by W. W. Johnson, assist
ant general freight agent of the Bur
lington, who is just back from a trip
that took him as far west s O'Neill.
While out he made an inspection of many
fields of corn and talked with' numerous
farmers of Dixon, Knox, Cedar, Dakota,
Antelope, Pierce and Holt counties. From
the information gained, he is of the
oplnioa that m these counties the corn
crop right now is the best that has ever
been raised In. that section of the state.
The acreage is unusually large and gen
erally the fields are beyond the point
where frost would result In any serious
Mr. Johnson says that as usual there
are a few fields that would be dam
aged by a killing frost, but In some in
stances this would be true If frost held
off until the middle of October. However,
these fields of soft com are very few
and limited in area.
lr. Johnson found that meningitis
among horses is spreading to the north
ern counties of the state and while the
disease Jiam not become epidemic the
losses have been heavy. Should it con
tinue, he is of the opinion that it will In
terfere seriously with the farmers' fall

GIRL ACROBAT PERFORMS
DANGEROUS FEAT IN PUBLIC
Dashing Dainty Marie, now playing at
the Krug, gave nearly 5.000 persons a
thrill at 12:30 yesterday, when suspended
by a rope passed behind her head, she
was slowly lowered from the top of the
Woodmen of the World building.
Like a green and white bird the gM's
figure floated on the rope with the
breese and as strong men on top worked
a windlass spectators held their breath
lest the girl should lose her nerve and
fall to the earth. When her feet touched
earth she waa asked why she did It.
"Well, it waa not for anybody's love,
nor yet to win a big wager. It waa
merely tor an advertisement." .

Clothes thefts accomplished by a
method of confidence are believed to have
been stopped in the arrest of M. L. Bow
man, who conducted what was purported
to have been a tailoring and cleaning
establishment at ITCH Leavenworth street
Bowman la believed to be the man who
haa been making a thorough and system
matlc canvass of the city, soliciting press
ing and cleaning work, and to this way
securing hundreds of dollars worth ot
wearing apparel. .
Aa far as is known, none of the cloth
ing thus secured has been returned. Bow
man's arrest was accomplished by Detec
tive Rich, who only recently became a
member of the force, and who was de
tailed to catch the culprit. ,;
Method of Proipedsre. !
His method of procedure waa to watch
the pawn shops, and he learned in this
way that a considerable amount of cloth
ing had been pawned at different places
by the same person. He then- set about
to locate his quarry, the result being
that Bowman was arrested.
Bowman admits to the detectives that
he disposed of four suits and overcoats
to pawnshops, but his operations appar
ently have been much more extensive
All of the thefts that have been made in
the last tew weeks have not been reported
to the police, so there Is no way of tell.
Ing the extent of Bowman's operations.
