Prof. Simpson, superintendent
of the Auburn schools, died
Wednesday morning at a hospital
in Omaha. He was taken sick
several days ago with appendici
tus and was taken to Omaha,
where an operation was per
formed, from the effects of
which he died. His body was
brought to Auburn for burial.
He leaves a wife and two chil
dren. John Ackerman, who was tried
in the district court at Auburn,
charged with hiring a man to set
fire to a barn owned by him in
BrownviMe in order to get the
insurance, was acquitted by the
jury Tuesday, although the evi
dence was quite strong against
him. Young Mason, who plead
guilty to setting fire to the barn
and .claimed he was hired to do

Fred Hoover and Ed Knapp
were riding around town in an
automobile Monday evening, and
we suppose Fred will soon have
one to deliver fruit with and Ed
will be carrying mail in one.
The main thing that bothers Ed
is to find one that will go through
water, wade mud, climb steep
hills, and never balk or get out
It is hard enough to haye your

without having the few things
that are left stolen afterward.
Mrs. M. C. Scott informs us that
she had collected a table, tub
and some other things and left
them on the site of her wrecked
home, but some one has carried
off what little was left. Parties
living in Nemaha have been seen
carrying away stuff belonging to
others, as they sustained no dam
age from the storm. If they are
caught at this hereafter they
may be severely handled.

A gang of wild dogs are again
bothering stock in the vicinity of
Nemaha. Sherman Merrit saw
seven of them about 6 o'clock
Wednesday morning. They came
up the railroad track and started
to run his horses. He shot at
them a couple of times with a
target gun and they ran on up
the track. He came to town and
got some shells for his rifle and
will be ready for them if they
put in an appearance again.
Rex Oliver of Falls City, a son
of County Superintendent T. J.
Oliver, was a Nemaha visitor
several days, starting homeTues
day afternoon. He drove up and
on account of the high water on
the Big Nemaha and Muddy bot

home, but finally decided to try
it and go as far as he could in
the buggy and then take a boat
