Death by Lightning:.
During the thunder storm on Friday
evening A. W. Rankin whose home is on
Clear Creek, was struck and instantly
killed by lightning. He was plowing
corn at the time in the open field. Sev
eral persons were at work in an adjoin
ing field at the time, and saw the bolt
leap from the clouds and strike him on
the top of the head. They hastened to
him as quickly as possible, to find life
entirely extinct. Mr. Rankin with his
family has for some years resided in tho
county and was universally esteemed by
his neighbors, ne was about fifty-five
years old. Ho leaves a wife and several
children who have the general sympathy
of the community in their sudden and sad
bereavement. Broken Bow Statesmen,
A meger and uncertain report was in
circulation yesterday morning in the city
concerning the alleged murder of Fred
'Vetch, a character well known here as
the partner in business of Con Douvovan.
The accounts conflict very much. Some
had the understanding that Vetch when
last seen was in a wagon with another
party with his head bowed and his hands
apparently tied behind. The facts are as
best our reporter can obtain that Vetch
had mortgaged some property in which
his title was not perfect and in other
ways involved the family of his mother-
in-law. These things created a row In
connection with these the people have
some definite notions concerning his
whereabouts. The belief is he has been
put out of the way .Curtis Courier.
Shot in Bed.
Last Friday the sheriff was called to
Anselmo to hold an inquest over the body
of North L. Overton who was shot in his
bed some time Thursday night. The evi
dence at the inquest was of such a nature
that the sheriff arrested the wife of the
dead man and brought her to Broken
Bow for preliminary trial. She was
arraigned Monday before J udge Kilgore
but waived examination and was commit
ted to jail without bail. Killing scrapes
in Custer county are getting to be of too
frequent occurrence and it will only be
after the hanging of some murderer that
this wholesale murder business will be
stopped. The killing of wrong doers by
officers in attempting their arrest is all
right; but a regular hanging match
would have a very salutary effect upon
thugs and toughs when they were pre
paring for a spree. Broken Bow Itepub-lican.
Remains of a Mostodon.
A monster bone partially petrified has
been left at the Newx office by J. G.
Hughes living eight miles east of here.
It was found embedded in the sand on one
of the banks of the North Platte river.
Varied are the opinions expressed by
different persons who examined it, as to
what specie of animal it belonged. It is
more than probable that the massive bone
once bore the weight of the now extinct
mostodon that was once an inhabitant of
the great American desert. It measures
about two feet in length, and at one end
nearly ten inches in diameter or two and
one half feet in circumference, and re.
presents the bone of that part of the leg
below the knee of the mastodon, or some
other animal of monster proportion.
Mr. H. intends when he can spare the
time to further explore the premises
where he made the find and may succeed
tn exhuming the entire skeleton; tho
parts secured have the appearance of
being freshly broken. Ogallala News.

Tuesday night about 6 miles north o
Broken Bow. A party of robbers had
been doing considerable plundering in
the southwest part of tho county and the
constables and citizens from several
townships formed a posse and started in
pursuit. Tuesday evening the robbers
were overhauled in a canyon north of
here by the posse, and ordered to throw
up. This they refused to do and being
in a wagon drawn by two good horses
they started off on a dead run, preparing
at the same time to resist all attempts
made to arrest them. Seeing the robbers
were heavily armed and meant business
the constable preferred not to take any
chances on the life of his men, and after
calling several times for a halt from the
robbers he ordered his men to fire. The
posse armed with Winchesters, shot guns,
etc., fired at the robbers, killing one and
it is thought wounded the other. Tho
man killed fell out of the wagon and the
other one after running about on9 mile
sprang from the wagon and cut loose a
saddle horse from the wagon and made
his escape. So far he has not been heard
from though parties are in pursuit.
Tho man that was killed is supposed to
be either a mulatto or Indian about 5 feet
9 inches tall and about 160 pounds weight,
large features, yellow complexiou,
straight dark brown hair, thick and long
upper lip, no beard or any indication of
ever having raised one, and about 25 or 30
All kinds of plunder was found in the
wagon. Three rifles and several revol
vers wero in their possession. Also about
3 pecks of catridges, and one catridge
box marked '-Frankfort Arsenel." From
the way the robbers were fixed it is evi
dent they did mean not to surrender, and
it is lucky that none of the party got
hurt. Tho horses are supposed to have
boen stolen southwest of here somewhere.
One is a bay horse about 11 years old
white nose, white hind feet, brand figure
8 on left shoulder, weicht about 1.100
pounds ; the other horse is brown, about
11 years old, weight about 1.1000.
Wednesday the body of the dead man
was brought to town and an inquest hold
The verdict returned was justifiable
homicide from the hands of the constable
and his posse. The body was buried in
the Broken Bow cemetery Wednesday
afternoon. Broken Bow Republican.

to work under the federal law by buying
their liquor put up in half pint, pint and
quart flasks in foreign countries and then
ship them direct to Des Moines, where
they will be sold without breaking the
seal. They hope to gain immunity from
the state law under the rule that imported
goods when sold in the original package
are exempt, and are now making ar
rangements to open up a depot for the
sale of their supplies. They will not find
the road an easy one to travel, and will
doubtless wish before through that they
had confined their efforts to a country
where the traffic is legitimate."
