The unexpected visit of that unmiti

The heavy rain , Tuesday night , was ac
companied by a brilliant electric display ,
and quite high wind , which played havoc
with sheds and out-buildingswhich were
scattered promiscuously about in differ
ent sections of town. Small's barn was
partially unroofed , and Mr. HocknelFa
carriage shed was blown over , and his
buggy inverted. No particular damage
was sustained , however.
Spanogle & Rinker have the Grass
Hopper Hod Breaker.
Hayden & Co. have had a watering
place put in in front of their store for
the accommodation of the travelingpub-
lic and farmers. Thus is a "long felt
want" of the public filled at last. Of
course , it will be understood that the
watering trough is not for domestic use ,
and an observance of this fact will avoid
misunderstanding and unpleasantness.

Last Thursday night , while Berger's
herd of ponies were in charge of the
night herder , the ponies became fright
ened , or were in some manner disturbed
and put in motion , and ran into Dr.
Kay's barbed wire fence north of town ,
mutilating eleven head of them badly.
The horses ran into the fence at the cor
ner of the doctor's pasture and look the
wire , posts and all down "slick and
clean" for about twenty rods on each
side , carrying tho wire and posts into

The eight-year-old boy of S. Plunkett
met with an accident , Saturday , in which
lie sustained some painful , though not
serious injuries. The little fellow was
riding on a wagon loaded with stone , and
was by some means , jolted off in front
of the wagon , the front wheel of the
same running over his leg between the
ankle and the knee. The accident oc-
urred m the bottom , where the sand is
quite deep , which fact probably saved
he boy's leg from being crushed by the
icavily loaded wagon. As it was , his
eg was pretty badly bruised and lacer
ated , though not broken. The boy's
) ack was also painfully injured in fall-
ng out over the wheel.

The order which went into effect June
1st , authorizing the agents at Lincoln
and McCook to sell extension tickets to
and seekers , as far west as Denver , at
2 cent rate , is misunderstood by many.
The rate only applies to those parties
coming from points east of the Missouri
iver , who hold round trip tickets. To
such these agents are authorized to sell
extension tickets at the above rate , and
to none others. This rate , it will be seen ,
will not effect one traveler in a hundred.
Were tbe rate applicable to all who de
sire to enter land west of here , the ad
vantage to the country would be consid
erable as the 4 cent rate has been and
will continue to be a draw-back.

It would appear that the young man ,
corge W. Pate , now in the hands of
Sheriff Welborn , self-convicted of hav-
ng obtained money from the Red Wil-
ow County Bank of Indianola under
'also pretences , is not an object upon
which to waste much sympathy , as he
las played the same game on other busi
ness men , among the number being
Spanogle & llinker of our city , from
whom he purchased a plow , giving as
security a chattel mortgage on his cattle ,
of which he seems to have had a fine
mnch of 90 head in his mind. Unlike
the bank , however , Spanogle & Rinker
succeeded in recovering their property.

popular beverage , theology in all its in-
tracacies and technique was discussed
with the fervor and power of expression , '
coupled with majestic expressions , 1
( through the medium of various parts
of the anatomy ) of which the German
alone is master. The important matter ,
it might be of interest to state , was
finally settled , after much spiritual
wrestling and heart searching , satisfac
torily arranged , tlic council was adjourn
ed sine die , for spirituous refreshments.
