The goat was perched high on ono of Buckingham's wagons, stand ing on the several tons of hay which he is to masticate between now and J line 1, hitched to a sample farm wagon about three feet In length. Tho goat evidently realized his future Importance, for when hts private car crossed Sixteenth and Farnam streets he observed tho expressions of apprehen sion of several faces belonging to sub- 4M. C V. A- 1. acquaintance 'of the goat on June 1. To show thorn that he was eagerly antici pating an introduction to them tho goat tried to butt the driver over the front seat. Only sudden activities on the part of the goat's bodyguard prevented serious results. Then he tried to break the wagon to bits, but was Intercepted once more. At the present time the goat looks like the biggest one In captivity, but Dad Wcver, who was on hand to get a lank at him, Immediately announced that ho must put on more weight. Also Dad says a gymnasium will be Installed In the den so that the goat can expand his mus cles and harden his putting apparatus. Tho goat received this announcement with much eclat rind manifested in his manner of disdain with which he viewed tho congestion of populas at the Inter section that he fully Intended to- be the biggest noise In the Ak-Sar-Ben den when he was called upon to perform. Charge Against Lehm for Shooting Dog is Dismissed on Promise Whether "Joey", a fox terrier owned by tho children of John Kelson of Benson, intended to bite Henry Lehm, 674J Hop kins street, 11 years old, wuon the boy shot tho little animal, was a question placed before Juvenile Judge Sears. Tho Judge, displaying tin Intimate knowledge of dog nature, decided that "Joey", though he had been accusod of biting persons who passed by his. homo, was not in a dangerous mood when he was (Jain. Young Lehm and his brother were protected by & bull dog and this fact was taken In consideration by the Judge. Tho evidence showed that the little dog was running away when he was shot. Whether the Lehms or the Nelsons were in the Tight was a question of mo ment, because, according to the, evidence, a neighborhood row of considerable di mensions is in progress and several res idents of that neighborhood were in court. The judge ruled that a complaint was properly brought against Henry Lehm, but dismissed the case becauso he promised to refrain from doing anymore ihootlng.

IllK Concerns I'nya fop What They line nt Knil of Bach Month, "While the Sninll Taxpayer Matt Vny in Advance. Consumers ot tee are up In arms on ac count of the discrimination that. Is being made by the ice companies ot the city, all of which chargo the same price. Hav ing agreed upon the prices, It Is asserted that tho plan smacks ot trust methods and litigation is freely talked. The local Ice companies have sent out their notices and aro charging families nnd small consumers at tho rate of 45 cents per hundred pounds, or P per ton. Theso consumers say that they would not object were they not compelled to pay about throe times the price charged the corporations. They point to tho fact that the People's Ice company has Just en tered Into a ten-year contract with the Union raclflc, whereby It is to get Its lco delivered In tho cars in the yards nt the rate of $2-60 per ton. Not only Is the Union Pacific- getting cheap lco while the families are paying top price, but other concerns aro being put on the lists as favored ones. The Rock Island road, that has a contract that runs from year to year In paying at tho rate of .J5 per ton, regardless ot whether It takes 100 pounds, or a ton dally. Chrnp to Commission Men, Tho railroads are not the only concerns that are getting cheap Ice, while the prlvato consumers are paying many times the rate. For Instance, Hunter & Cheney, commission men, buy ice of Shackleford & Dickey and pay at the rate of 13.60 per ton, regardless of whether they take lit tle or much. It Is understood that most of the commission houses pay the Hun ter & Cheney rate, while to a few others the price Is out CO cents per ton. Then, too, these low rates are on a basis of payment at tho end of the month, the payment being for Ihe Ice taken, thero being no money required In ad vance. With the private consumer a different rule Is applied; with him it Is money first and then the ice. Coupon books are sold, tho coupon books being for 760 pounds. Every book has to be paid for before a pound ot ice will be delivered. Nash and Mayor in Discussion Over the Light Contract K. A Nash of the Bleetrlo Ughtlng company and Mayor Jam e. n,ihlnin contorrcd at length In the mayor's of- nee on the proposed street lighting con tract. Following the conference the mayor said: "While tho matter Is to come tin Mnn. day It will probably bo for discussion only, as the council has not had enough light on the question to Justify action now "There's no telling what will be dono with It." Commissioners aro Inell action for somo time, giving the publlo aj wen as themselves an opportunity to discuss the proposed contract In detail.
