says: “My brother was very low with

their use until he was wholly cured.
I am sure Electric Bitters saved hie life.”

Dr. Berry and Frank Hopkins were
held up last Sunday night, near the
Graham farm about seven miles north
west of O’Neill. The vandals ralieved
the Doctor of a watch and $10 or $15
in coin of the realm, entirely ignoring
Hopkihs. Since the commission of
the offense it has developed that the
whole deal was a put-up job and that
the perpetrators of the joke are three
leading young men of Sheilds township.
Jokes are all right in their way and
when used in the right place but jokes
of this kind and character are enteriely
out of place and if persisted it may
lead in a procession in which the would
be perpetroters would occupy the front
end of the procession. Cut it outboys?
It’s the safest.

quetry. When he was sitting, he from

Sou* City Tribune:
A. W. Sovereign of Savage, Neb.,
was to Sioux City today and told a most
revolting story of the death of Silas
Durkee, living near that place. The
mutilation of his body by a drove of
hogs, the struggle of his wife, first to save
his body, and later to save her own life,
and of her rescue by a neighbor woman
who, in turn nearly fell victrm to the
Mr. Durkee lived two miles north of
Savage, on a farm. Going out early in
the morning to feed his hogs, he climbed
into the pen and is supposed to have
dropped dead from heart disease, with
which he had been afflicted. His wife
delayed the family breakfast for his
return. As he did not appear she went
to search and found his body in the hog
lot, the drove of now infuriated swine
fighting over it and eating the flesh.
They had torn away the fleBh from face,
arms and neck and would soon have
entirely denuded the skeleton of all its
Mrs. Durkee seized a club ana climbed
into the yard to drive away the hogs
and save the remains. Instantly she
was attacked by the beasts, fairly wild
with the desire for more blood. In
stead of rescuing her husband’s remains
she founds herself in a struggle for her
own life. Unable to escape from the
yard, she fought desperately with the
club in her hands, for almost two hours.
By that time she was on the verge of
cimplete exhausalion, when Mrs. Her
rmg, the wife of a neighbor, passed the
place and heard calls for help. She
rushed to the rescue and climed into
the hog pen with a heavy club took her
place beside Mrs. Durkee. The two
beat back the infuriated hogs
momentarily but had no more than
done this when Mrs. Durkee fell at her
rescuer's feet in a dead faint. The hogs
redoubled their attack and Mrs. Herring
found herself in a desperate plight.
The mutilated body of tha dead man
and the seemingly lifeless one of his
wife must be protected, and her own
life was in iminent dangei. She
called to her little hoy, who was with
her, and sent him to a neighbor’s huuse.
It was over an hour before he returned.
The rescuers found the brave woman
still making good her battle; she could
have escaped, but preferred to take
her own chances in order to save Mrs.
Durkee, who had partially
revived but was not able to help herself
out of the enolousre. The women were
promptly rescued. The mangled re
mains of Mr. Durkee were taken from
the place, and the two determined
women were cared for by kind friends.
Mr. Durkee was one of the oldest set
tlers in this neighborhood, having lived
at Savage seventeen years. The fuGeral
was held there yesterday.
