GREATER ADVANTAGES IN SIOUX
LLJWUA AS EDUCATIONAL
The proposition is being seriously
considered. It is suggested that the
present buildings at Vermillion could
be used for a state normal school or
some other institution.
Minneapolis, AprtT 5.—"Hails of
bullets" are not infrequent. "Storms
of applause" often occur. And every
now and then there is a "flood of pro
test" or a "reign of terror."
But a shower of diamonds is some
thing else again and very infrequent.
However, that is what pedestrians
saw along Nicollet avenue, this city.

New York city were returning to their
hotel. She was wearing a diamond
necklace of 100 stones valued at $25,

her and knocked her down. The
Btring of diamonds broke.
Led by the owner, pedestrians and
chauffeurs began a wild scramble in
the snow to regain the gems. All but
one was found. Fred Markham, a
cab driver found the hundredth gem
the next day. He returned it to Mrs.
