Lute Martin and Teto Leserve
commenced their Xmas festivities
rnthor early tills year nnd aa n con-
soqucnco had to contribute some of.
their lioozo money toward the city's
welfare. It appears that the two
went to Wills' short order house Sat
urdaS' night and commenced playing ,
out the lights , making largo noises |
with the voice and playfully Indulg
ing In any other little jokes that
suited their fancy. Affairs reached
a climax when Martin drew a knife
carefully explained Its uses and told
' the inmates . of the house * what lie
! ? intended doing with it. This did
J/ i not meet the views of Proprietor
* Wills at all , so grabbing a chair ho
is i > made for tho' festive Martin , who in
* , turn , hastily made for the door.
< Chief Towsley and Marshal Draper
| rt. rounded up the appy pair and on
Monday- took them to Judge G'Sch-
wlnd's temple of justice where they
were meted out $28 including the
usual holiday trimmings. Martin ,
in a burst of generosity , not only
paid his own fine , but that of his
friend as well.

"GiFTY GIFTS" I
"What so "gifty" as some article
of gold or silver ? the two "precious
metals. " There is a comfortable cer
tainty about giving gold or silver
things welcome because al ways
wantable. In kind with gold and
silver , jewelery nas ever been a sug
gestive word in gift making. A com
prehensive word it is these days ,
meaning not onlvjewels for personal
adornment , hut articles of necessity
and ushfulness as well , such as
Watches , Clocks , Diamonds , Silver
ware , and Gold and Silver Novelties.
Tut jewelry is something you should
buy of those in whom you not only
have confidence , but of those who -
have the cec < ssary knowledge to
judge tre good Irom the bad. Years
of experience in handling , selling ,
selecting , making and repairing give

little or no dlffciuico is noticed In
the situation. It is said Neptune
had several other big contracts on
his hands at the time of the fail

urally suffer , more or less ; but the
Broken How undertaking Is so much
further advanced than the others
that it will not be affected to any
The building is now within a few
days of being completed and the
work has not been interrupted in
any way , but Is going steadily for
ward. Neptune throw up the con
tract and the trustees took hold of
it with a vim. Of course they nat
urally look toward the trust com
pany that furnished Neptune's bonds
to do Its share in keeping things
in operation and preparing the in
stitution for occupancy.
The city may well bo proud of tl. )
new structure , because , when com-i
ploicd , it will take its place among
tnu up-to-date high school buildings j
of the state. No convenience for
the benefit of advanced students has

ance it is the most imposing looking
building between Grand Island and

The Body of ( Snbrell Peytor Found
I Horribly Mutilated Near
j i Callaway.
j One of the most gruesome acci
dents ( that can bo imagined occurred
comotlmo ' during Saturday night ,
two ' miles north of Cyllaway , when
Gabriel ( Peyton , a middle aged farmer -
er < visiting lies son at that place
after i meeting death In some unknow
vnj , had his body partially dovouro
by ' hogs. According1 to reports that
hnvo reached hero , the old gcntle-
man i was looking after the place
j' w'.llo his son and daughter-in-law
wore absent during the day and
part of the evening. They returned
late at night nnd naturally suppos
ing their father was in bed , retired
themselves. ' On Sunday morning ,
however , the father failed to appear
and the son becoming alarmed , in-
stltutcd a search. - Finally , the hog
yard was visited , and there lying
near the center , was tbo body of Mr.
Peyton , most horribly mutilated.
The hogs had eaten all the flesh
from the body down 4o the knees ,
and the. sight was ouo never to bo
forgotten. How death actually oc
curred is a mystery ; but it Is pre
sumed the victim loft his bed some
time during the night and wander
ed into the hog yard , where he mlgh
have bee seized with heart failure
or something If a like nature. It
Is hardly probable that he was klh-
\2d outright by hogs , although there
Is no possibility of his being only
unconscious when attacked by the
animals. The uncertainty of it is
what makes the case the more hor-
rlblo to think of. The funeral oc
curred last Monday at Callaway ,
