Notary Public Grand Jury Still Plugging, Despite Prophets' Word The popular pastime of court hous- ers in announcing confidentially that the "grand jury will adjourn tomor row sure' will probably continue throughout this week. They've been adjourning the star chamber jurors for a week now, but the sixteeen in quisitors were on the job again bright and early Monday morning to report tor their fourth week ot service. It is rumored that $3 a day looks pretty good to some of the jurymen and they don't care if the body never adjourns. Anyway, according to the present report, the grand jury will re main -in session for a while, at least. County Attorney Magney declared that the body was "on the home stretch" but he didn't say how long the stretch was. It is known that the reports to the district judges and the county attorney's office are being prepared. several witnesses were sunpoenaed and called to testify before the body Monday morning. Among them were I. M. Finn, special detective for the Brandeis stores, and M. Peterson and his son, William Peterson. The Petersons have been before the grand jury twice in the last week. Huge Acreage in Wyoming Soon to Open to Settlers The Union Pacific emigration dc partment is taking the preliminary steps to boom the Uoshen Hole coun try, lying southwest of Scottsbluff. In the locality there is said to be between 200,000 and 300,000 acres of land tn Wyoming, just over the Ne braska line, that will he irrigable uoon the completion ot the government project, now under course of con struction. fhe Goshen Hole country is said to be equal to the Big Horn basin in the matter of fertility and will pro duce agricultural products in great abundance as soon as water is turned upon the land. The irrigation dis tricts along the line of the proposed land have been surveyed and the land subdivided. It is expected that it will go onto the market during the com ing summer. Paul Murray Lays Flat Persistent Panhandlers "Panhandlers" and street "mooch- ers were notably more careful than usual in making advances to prospec tive victims along north Sixteenth street after two of them had an ex perience near Cass street Saturday afternoon with Paul Murray, a boxing instructor. Got a dime?" one of them asked Murray. , Sure, but 1 m going to keen it. the g'ove artist replied. Not satishcd. the beggars became insistent and even sought to detain Murray by catching hold of his coat. When they regained consciousness a large crowd had gathered and the panhandlers quietly disappeared after learning who .Murray was. YEGGMAN OPENS UP THE SHERIFF'S SAFE Comes to Rescue of Mike Clark, Who Finds Big Door Locked and Combination Gone. NITEO NAT SAVES THE DAY Sheriff Clark was chancing the combination on the big safe in his private office. In the midst of jot ting down numbers and 'oying with a delicate mechanism he was called to the outer office. While he vas busy talking to a deputy a stenog rapher entered the private office and seeing the door of he safe swu g open, thought it strange and closed it. "Just as the massive door of "Old Gibraltar," as the big chunk of steel and iron is called by those in the sheriff's office, swing shut with a clang, the Douglas county law and order czar appeared on the thresh ho!d. "Darn it I" ejaculated Mike. wh.it'11 wc do now. The safe's locked and 1 don't know what the combina tion is. What they did is how this tale hap pened to be writ'.en. cnd tor an expert from the safe company- he car. get it opcr in halt a day " ventured one bright deputy. Most Have It Opened. "But there are some paner' in there I've positively got to hav by noon." mused the sheriff. "It's got to be opc.;ed inside of an hour or -.e're up a stump right." , "Get the grand jury t, 'investigate it and then mow it open with some of the soup we took away from those bank robbers last month." was the inspiration of the office wit "Blow your head open.'' retorted the sheriff. "What do you want to do? Wreck the court house." Jailer Clayton, who had been stand ing in tMc background during the ex change of brilliant ideas, suddenly let out a triumphant yell. '!'ve got it; what's the matter of letting old Nat swellen up in the jail make a try at it. He was known as the best cajulcr of safe combinations in these parts twenty years ago. It wjukl please him to see if he still got the touch in his fingers.' " , "Bring him down quick," snapped the sheriff. "I'll give him a box of cigars if he opens this safe without damaging it." So they brought old Swellen "down." "Nitro Nat. Down and out, Old Nat, who in his heyday was known as "Nitro Nat." and tbe best little strong box opener who ever hied a linger nail to the quick or poured a bottle of "soup," fell into the hands of the. police in December and was booked for ninety days in the sheriff's hotel on a charge of vagrancy. The sentence rather pleased the old safe expert, for the county jail is warm and they eat there regularly. All eyes were on Uld Nat as he entered the sheriff's office He was king for a short time. Can you open it.' questioned the sheriff. ; Um," mused the old timer as he walked past "Old Gibraltar" and gave tt the once "over. Can a hungry hobo open a can of beans? Watch me." - Files Hi Nails.
