acter this summer ,
The government agricultural depart
ment recommends that the first flies
which appear in summer bo destroyed ,
as fly generations follow caoh other nt
ton-day intervals , with 120 fold increase.
It may DO figured out that the destruc
tion of one fly at the beginning of the
summer is equal to slaying millions later
in the season.
The following from the Nebraska City
Tribune refers to one of the former
publishers of the Norfolk Journal : "A.
F. Lewis , foreman of the Fremont Trib
une news room , was struck on the head
by a hatchet wielded by his two-year-old
baby. The baby will bo named Carrie
Nation Lewis , and perhaps other things
will happen to it when Mr. Lewis re
covers his old time strength. "
Another vein has been put down on the
farm of ElMia Reminele at Jamestown
by thecoal prospectors and another find
of coal has resulted.Tho shaft is 218 feet
below the surface of the earth. The
first hole is five rods distant from the
last and the vein struck there is ton foot
in thickness. A great deal of interest
ms been excited and there is talk of
easing the neighboring farms by Fre
mont capitalists.
George Stalcop , the house mover , is
one of the busy men of Norfolk these
Ittyd and thinks that could ho string the
present season's work out two or three
Rummers he would have plenty to keep
liui out of mischief. The present high
price of building material is the cause
of much of his effort. A person ia not
nclinod to put up new buildings as
eng ns ho can secure old ones that maybe
bo moved to a desired location and fixed
up for use.
Robert Smith of the firm of Hoffman
& Smith is suffering the inconvenience

load of a team and when the alarm was
sounded the team turned suddenly and
ran into Mr. Smith , throwing him from
his wheel. He fell heavily on the point
of his shoulder , fracturing one of the
bones. He was laid up a day or two but
s now able to be about , with his arm
bound tightly to his side.
A jolly number of self-invited guests
assembled at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
0. M. Janes on South Eleventh street ,
Thursday evening. The affair was a
surprise for Miss Lilian Savage of Lin
coln , sister of Mrs. Janes , and was ar
ranged by a number of friends , who pre
sented Miss Savage with a beautiful
liece of china , as a souvenir of the oc
casion. The evening was passed most
delightfully in social chat , various
games and the serving of choice refresh
ments. Miss Savage departed for her
lome yesterday.
One of the carriers on the rural free
mail route at Fremont has hit upon a
novel scheme to give the weather to the
'armors along his route. Copies of the
forecast are distributed each day to the
patrons of the route , but in addition to
; his he has converted his wagon into a
signal station from which miniature
weather flags are displayed. His method
of indicating the weather is the same as
that used by the regular display stations.
The white flag meaning fair weather ;
blue , rnin or snow ; white and blue ,
ooal rain or snow ; black triangle for
temperature , and white with black
center to indicate a cold wave.
The Gretna Breeze of this week gives
an extended account of a reception to
Miss Booze and follows it with a state
ment that a domestic duck had absorbed
a jag by imbiding of water used to rinse
out beer glasses. The two items would
seem to indicate that an extended
account of such a reception is a waste of
time and space , as even the fowls of
that town show on inclination to receive
booze at almost any time or place , and
the transaction is therefore too common
to warrant any special mention. In
view of the coincidence it would seem
that the best Miss Booze can do is to
change her name at the earliest
practicable moment.
'Hooper Sentinel : An Iowa paper , in
describing a swell wedding last week ,
threw the following spasm : "The
church was hushed in silence as the in
vited guests , realizing the importance
of the moment , awaited anxiously the
coming of the bride. The wedding
march had just reached its sweetest
and softest tune , when the bride , lean
ing on the arm of her sister , with fairylike -
like reached the altar " "
glides , .Fairy-
iiko glides" is good , besides it's nice ,
some brides trot or pace or canter up to
the altar , some single-foot , some dog
trot , and Bomo go lumbering up the aisle
like an ox. It's a heap nicer to get
there with fairy-like glides.
Madison Chronicle : Fred Zeasin re
ceived his excursion boat Tuesday morn
ing from Racine , Wisconsin , and it will
bo launched Sunday morning on the
creek at the foot of Pearl street , at which
time all that come will be given a free
ride. In the afternoon the boat will
ply between the'pier and the Island. A
charge of 25 cents for the round trip will
bemado. The boat is a beauty. It glistens
ike a highly polished piano. It is 18
feet long , with 4 feet 6 inches in beam
and will accommodate ten passengers
comfortably. Now f-omo enterprising
person should get hold of Sohwank's
( Bland and convert it into a summer
resort. What a great boon it would IK >
to have a ulco shady grove to withdraw
to in the hot summer days , where one
could take his family and spend the
time socially and with comfort.
Property owners of the west side am ;
in other parts of town have a well de
fined kick coming against the boys who
drive the cows through the streets to
pasture and allow the animals to roinn
at random across parks , Hidowallu * and
lawns , destroying trees , shrubbery , and
leaving unsightly holes in well cured
for grass plots. Such danmgo should
bo prevented even though the boyn are
compelled to load the animals. It IB far
from plcasnrcablo to spend a great deal
of time and money on improving
promises , to have the work ruined in a
moment by cattle that are unrestrained
by those who should keep thorn in the
street. If ono boy is not enough to
keep the animals in bounds while on their
way to pasture , others should bo hired
or the owners of the pasture or cattle
made responsible under the ordinance.
There is no oxcnso for permitting the
cows to work injury , and the owners of
the property so damaged will certainly
be justified in causing arrests if more
care is not exorcised in the futuro.

Blood.
We live by our blood , and on
it. We thrive or starve , as
our blood is rich or poor.
There is nothing else to live
on or by.
When strength is full and
spirits high , we are being re
freshed , bone muscle and brain ,
in body and mind , with con
tinual flow of rich blood.
This is health.
When weak , in low spirits ,
no cheer , no spring , when rest
is not rest and sleep is not
sleep , we are starved ; our blood
is poor ; there is little nutri
ment in it.
Back of the blood , is food ,
to keep the blood rich. When
it fails , take Scott's Emulsion
> f Cod Liver Oil. It sets the
vhole body going again man
/oman and child. |
