FOUffl IN A PIG
William Sardeson, who resides thir
teen miles southwest of O'Neill, was in
town Monday with a specimen of disease
jerms taken from a swine which he
believes to be a case of tuberculosis.
Mr. Sardeson is a veterinary surgeon
and has made a study of animal diseases.
About a year ago he got a small pig to
experiment with. The pig came form a
place where their was a case of con
sumption in the family and he thinks
possibly the disease was transmitted
from human to brute. It was a sickly,
runt of a pig when Mr. Sardeson took
it home. It was given special care and
kept away from other stock so that
developments could be closely watched
but not until he had made a post mor
tem examatiou had the veterany an idea
of what the disease was. lie killed
the pig the othrer day and the entire
organic machinery showed evidenses of
disease, the spleen and lungs being
especially affected. Thickly dotted
through these organs were clusters of
small white balls of a soft and cheesey
nature and about the size of shot. The
veternary took his specimen to doctors
hen submit it to the microscope, but
a proper focus cauld not be secured
with the instrument at hand for such a
eubject and au accurate examination
could not be made. Dr. Skelton of
Page, who was in the city, took some
of the specimen which he will take to
Chicago this week and have it examined,
he going there to take a post graduate
course. The doctor will report the
resultB of the examination. Mr. Sarde
son say he recently killed a cow for a
farmer living southwest of town that
was in the last stages of consumption,
the left lung being gone. Tuberculosis
in cattle, lie says, is a common thing,
but has never found it in hogs before.
Died, at her home iu this city on last
Sunday evening, Mrs. Elizabeth Camp
bell, wife of Senator Frank Camp bell,
aged 41 years, 4 months and 13 days.
Elizabeth Winterer was born in St.
Louis, Mo., January 1, 1860. In 1869
she came with her parents to Cedai
county, this state. In 1880 she was mar
ried to Frank Campbell at Yankton, S.
D., coming to O’Neill the following
year, where the family has since resid
ed. Nine children were born to them,
six boys and three girls. One of the
girls died iu infancy in 1882. The re
mains of the child were exhnmed and
laid in the grave with its mother. The
youngest child is three weeks old.
The immediate cause of Mrs. Camp
bell’s death was eiampsia. She was a
loving, companionable woman, always
ready to help the needy. Her bright
smiles and cheering words will be
* greatly missed by hundreds of O’Neill
JH people outside her heartbrokeu family.
In hours of trouble such as this words of
sympathy can do but little to alleviate
the sorrow of the husband and children
of that once happy home which has
been made desolate by the removal of
its queen—the loving, sympathetic wife
and mother. O’Neill people fiom the
bottom of their hearts tender them
their sincerest sympathy in their
Deceased was a member of the O’Neill
lodge Degree of Honor in which she
carried $2000, insurance, and the local
. Castle of Royal Highlanders in which
she carried an equal amount. The
funnal was held from the Catholic
Church Tuesday morning the remains
beiDg interred in the Catbolc cemetary.
Mr. Campbell received a telegram of
sympathy from United States Senator
Kearns and also from several members
of ihe Nebraska legislature.
John Fallon, whose death was chron
icled in tlie last issue of The Frontier,
i was born in O’Neill November 19, 1882,
and at the timd of bis death was but
nineteen years and six months of age.
Deceased was a young man of sterling
integrity and many noble traits of char
acter. His sudden death upon tlie
threshold of manhood when life’s am
bitions were shown as beacon lights of
enchantment afar spurred him onward
and upward eager to learn theknowiedge
that would better enable him to fight
life’s battles, tlie grim reaper clasped
him in its lendions and claimed him for
its own. In manhoods youghtful bloom
yvhen darkest night appears as
brightest day to the expectant, hope
ful youth to have the tender cord of
life severed seems hard to realize but
He who docs all tilings for the best
called him to His home and loving
parents, brothers and sisters are left to
mourn, hilt bow their heads in humble
submission to his will. That he was
loved by both young and old was evi
^ denced by the large funeral last Friday
and the many and beautiful floral offer
ings placed upon his bier by loving and
devoted friends. The Academy Dra
matic Co., of which he was a member,
placed a beautiful wreath of remem
brance upon his casket; the teachers of
the public school, his classmates, Mrs.
James J. Barrington and Patrick Gor
don, of Sioux City, decorated the cas
ket with beautiful wreaths, while in
loving remembrance his family placed
a beautiful cross made of flowers. The
funeral was held from the Catholic
church Friday morning, the remains
being laid to rest in the Catholic ceme
tery . _

Joe. Gallagher, who recently graduated

hang out his professional shingle and
become a permanent fixture of that pro

At the adjourned meeting of Prospect
Hill cemetery association held last
Monday evening the principal matter
discussed was the present location of
the cemetery and its effect upon the
health of the people of O’Neill. As it
had not been announced that the ques
tion would come up, the meeting ad
journed till Monday evening, May 20, at
3 o'clock p. in., to convene at the same
place, for a further discussion of the
same question. A committee, consisting
of B. S. Gillespie, J. J. King and Rev.
Beckes, was appointed and instructed
to consult the physicians with reference
to the same and report at next meeting.
All persons should be interested in
the burial of the dead and the health of
themselves and families. Do not stay
at home thinking that you are not mem
bers of the association; while it has
officers it has no membership. Every
body has a voice and a vote in its man
agement. And while we sell lots to de

The Sioux City Tribune says: "Will
iam Whitfield, who had his left foot
amputated a week ago Sunday, is get
ting along well at Samaritan hospital,
and was out on the porch today. He
lias been employed by Davidson Bro
thers for five years. Some time ago he
injured his foot while playing baseball.
Chicago experts found nothing could
save it and he came back and submitted
to an operation.” Ii is nealy two years
ago that Will hurt his foot while living
in O'Neill and he lias suffered much
with it. His friends here regret that
the accident cost him a foot.
An exchange thinks that next year
we may expect to read something like
the following in the daily papers;
"About 10 o’clock this morning a horse
less milk wagon loaded with eowless
milk collided with a brainless rider on a

1 MORRISON ACQUITED;
District court adjourned Wednesday
after being in session sinoe last Thurs
day on the two cases of the state against
Lee and Henry Morrison. While the
trials wore two separate cases the
charges were Identical, tho defendant in
each case charged on three counts,
assault with intent to kill, assault with
intent to wound and assault with intent
to do great bodily injury. A. F.
Mullen as county attorney prosecuted
the cases, assisted in the trial of Thomas
by M. F. Harrington. It. It. Dickson
was defendants’ attorney. J. J. Schweit
zer nnd wife were the principal state
witnesses and testified in tho first and
Lee’s trial that he (Lee) did the stabbing.
Tho defendant denied the charge and
Thomas went on in behalf of his brother
and stated that lie (Thomas) was the
one that did the stabbing. This testi
mony conflicted with the idea that had
become prevelent that Lee had dono
the cutting and cleared him while it
fixed the deed upon Thomas. Mr.
Schweitzer had always said, nnd so
testified in court, Hint - Leo used the
knife on him. Lee’s case went to the
jury at noon Friday and a verdict of
acquittal was arrived at Sunday at 8
The jury in the other case was empan
eled Saturday and the trial was conclud
ed Tuesday evening, a verdict for as
sault and battery being returned Wed
nesday morning. Defendant waived
motion for a new trial and Judge Har
rington pronounced sentence of six
months confinement in the county jail
and a fine of $150 and costs of trial.
