The Norfolk Electric Light and Power company is installing n now dynamo and engine , both smaller than the ones in use rogularily , to take c'iro of the load after midnight on the all-night service. Manager Bullock is also contemplating the establishment of n continuous ser vice throughout the 2 ( hours , furnish ing electric current for power during the day. There is nothing quite so con venient as oloctrio power for small es tablishments , whore all one had to do to start his machinery is to turn n switch , and when occasion for power has parcel the current can bo turned oil nud the expense stopped. There are n number of plants using light power in the city that would welcome this change and would be glad to patronize it , and it is hoped that business may bo oll'orod the company to induce the establishment of the service. Union Paciflc surveyors have estab lished grades and sot stakes for the switch track to the electric light station , extending the track trom the cold stor age plant. The switch is being built for the convenience of the olectrio light company in unloading fuel for generat ing steam. The work of extending the switch will POOU bo undertaken. Gas Ranges.

The Hart' ' ford & Kuhuley barber shop is one of the latest to bo lit up by gas and a brilliant effect is produced. At the power plan ! there is on exhibition one of the power , ful lamps that the company is able tc furnish that throws a light out on the street of intense brilliancy that is quite capable of illuminating a largo space , The interior of the office is lit up to c degree almost rivalling Old Sol himself The demand for ranges and lights if largo and it is evident that the company will have an excellent patronage as fast as they are able to moot the demands.

They are of tin standard Nortluvc-Bt- ern yellow and have an observation compartment at each end PmtHch gas lights are used for illumination , and high backed scats and footstools will add to the comfort of passengers.

The equipment over the Bonesteol branch has likewise undergone n mater ial improvement and consists now of a new ( iO-foot combination baggage nnd express car , a snicker , first-class coacl : end a modern chair car.

The Newi'ouc Nitws , a republican paper , Hays that , according to the World-Herald , Mr. Uoonovolt is nliHO- lutoly in the wrong on every single point in bin menage. Tine Nicws says : "If hoVIH wrong on hut a few points , the World-Herald might forgive and fornot , but ho in apparently on the off Blelo of every Horn touched upon. " Tlin World-Herald never contended that Mr. KooHovolt was "absolutely in tlio wrong at every single point " The World-1 lurnld commended his word in behalf of Cuba , his declaration that the I'onccH o the cattle monopoly muHtccme down and his line plea for kind treat ment to the faithful army horso. In wlmtovur urllioiHin the World- Hoi aid mndu as to Mr. Koosovolt'H menage the reiiHOHH for that critioiHin won- presented by thin newspaper. So far nei republican newspaper him under- tiik"ii to answer tlu-wj reasons. From the humblest to the most conspicuous republican newspaper in the Rtato the World-Herald has been condemned bo- cniw < it criticised the man who bonstH that his is "not the nrot-d of the weak ling and the coward , " but whoso policy with respect to the trust system a nys- tern that provides for the people well nigh unbearable impositions is HO lame and feeble that oven the Chicago Record-Herald , ouo of the loading republican newspapers of the United Statts , was impelled to ray that Mr. Uoosovelt used "a literary blunderbuss where the people expected ho would go gunning with a repeating lo bo sure , republican paporB like tho. Omiiha Boo. the Lincoln Journal nnd the NoitroLK NKWS are giving cordlai indorsement to that message regnrdleB1 of its contents. Indeed , the Record- Herald , referring to this message , Bald that "it is procisaly the sort of n IIIOB. sago that will aroufio the greatest on. thuHinsm in the columiiB of ropublie-ai : organs" because "tho same old platl tudes" would servo to commend n Ktate paper that has "not n passage to make the pulse beat faster or a now rccom niPiielation that requires a Bocont thought. " World-Herald. If , as the World-Horald declares , ll did , in a minor key , compliment Prod dent Roosevelt on n few points , it hai attained a broader policy than it hai yet boon credited with , where republicans cans nnd republican policies nro con corned. Republicans , generally , have believed that the World-IIorald hai been about as hide-bound , politically , ni it is possible for n partisan newspaper te leoonio. Republican measures of ac knowledged merit which have boor commended by broad-minded democrats crats , have generally boon condomnee or ignored by the World-Herald ; while democratic policies that had become the laughing stock of the people have booi uphold and supported , blluelly and faithfully. One cannot soon forgol how that newspaper has denied pros perity under a republican admiuiBtra tion , when such n condition was posi tively proven on its pages , other thar editorial. Tlmt paper supported free silver even after the people had decide * that the policy of changing the mon. otary laws to accord with the free silver idea was as freakish as greea. mckism. It supported the "imperial ism" and "militarism" policies of the party with nn energy and apparent earnestness that would bo accorded real issue , its editor doubtless knowiup full well that it was more buncomto md that the country was in no wise threatened as alleged. The World-Herald , in turn , accuse ; the Bee , State Journal nnd NEWS with being too strictly partisan. Perhapi this is true. If eo it is a weakness thai Hhonld -corrected. . It may not at all times adhere to that policy , but THJ- tfr.ws believes the influential nowspapei s the ono that is broad enough to sec faults in its party , nnd commend the strong points in the opposition. Cer tainly THE NKWS cannot bo accused ol favoring the president's treatment ol the Bugar question ns between the Cuban ilauter and the beet industry , nud it ie Mxtiefled , not by reason of the position t has taken , perhaps , that the presi- lout's policy regarding the question las broadened. This paper was nmong he first , if not the first , to show that Governor Savage was not satisfactory u the executive oflice , and it has en- loavored to bo broad enough to credit lemocrats wi'h honor , integrity nud aithful service to the people in ustances , and has commended demo- ratio policies. On the contrary , TUB NKWS falls to recall nn instance whore he World-Herald ha * condemned deiii- wrate , unless tholr infidelity had boon ) roveu by the courts , and even then omotimes that paper has continued to land in their elofeuse. Nor is it ro- ulled wherein the World-Herald has reely commended republican ofllcials ml republican policies , oven where it aas boon conclusively shown that they were right , University Course in Agricult ural Knowledge.

Carl Austin's Fowling Piece Wont off and Shattered Some Windows. From Monday's Dally. Carl Austin , BOH of Mr. and Mrs. An&tin of the Heights , | hud an experi ence with a shot gun yesterday which ho supposed to bo unloaded , thut ha probably does not care to have repented. . Ho hael been cleaning the weapon after u hunting trip Saturday and was exhib iting it to friends in his room upstairs nt hia homo when in some manner the gun was disoh-rged. Fortunately it wn pointed toward no one and , beyond' doing Bomo damage to property nnel ! frightening the people who hoard they shot , thoro.wero no disastorous results. The gun was pointed at a large double window in the Austin homo and the charge shattered the glass in both the regular and storm sash and entered n window opposite in the house of P. Stafford , scattering the glass and. frightening the members of the Staf ford family. It is probable that no ono was moro startled by the accident thna the owner of the gun and his compan ions , and it may bo certain that they will handle n gun with greater caution than over horonfter. A Nebraska Magazine. J. W.

The business mm and club women can undoubtedly afford to assist Mr. Cuuada in every way possible in thus furthering the interests of the community. It is pleasing , also , to note that a magazine of this kind IB growing up in the state , which has been rather slow in literary work , or work other than the daily nnd weekly papers. There is a field nnd a need for n uingaziuo of this class one that gathers data , historical nnd liter ary matter from every section of tie | state nnd the west , and presents it to its reaelors first hand.
