Heavy Rainfall Near Pender.
Pi:mi:k, Neb., June C. The heaviest
rain season visited this neighborhood last
.Monday night accompanied by hail
and wind. Several buildings were dam

and other crops were either washed out
or buried. Trains were delayed several
hours by a washout between Pender and

Hail at Norfolk.
Norfolk, Neb., June 0. Very heavy
showers fell here Mondt-y evening.
About 10 o'clock chunks of pretty solid
ice began to thump upon the roofs of
buildings. One stone is reported as be
ing nine inches in circumference. No
wind was stirring and the hail was not
abundant, so but little damage was dene
besides the breaking here and there of a
itruck by Lightening.
Neliou, Neb., June 0. About 12
o'clock Monday night during a terrific
shower, lightning struck the house of N.
D. Jackson and completely wrecked it.
The most marvelous part of the accident
was that none of the family, which con
sistid f Mr. Jackson, his wife anh three
children, were injured. About two hours
later fire was discovered in the ruins but
was extinguished before it had burned
Murder at Culbertson.
Culbebtsox, Neb., June 5. A little
before noon today, John B. Hunter, a
hardware merchant here, deliberately
shot and killed II. B. Hull, a farmer liv
ing two miles east of town. The shooting
took place In a billiard hull and was the
result of a dispute between Hunter's fa
ther, Gallant V. Hunter, and Mr. Hull.
A jury was empanelled and after an ex
amination a verdict of death by a pistol
in the hands of John B. Hunter was ren
dered. Mr. Hull was a man generally
esteemed by his neighbors, while the
Hunters have been regarded as quarrel
some and dangerous characters. There
is some talk of lynch law being resorted
A Dead Body Found.
Fremont, Neb., June G. The body of
an unknown man was found this morn
ing five miles west of Fremont, near the
railroad track, by the crew of a passing
train. Coroner Abbott, of this city, was
summoned and an inquest was held on
the body at Ames. The coroner's jury,
after weighing all the facts and surround
ing circumstances, returned a yerdict to
the effect that the deceased came to his
death by means of a blow upon his head,
crushing his skull, but when, where and
how the blow was administered they
were uuable to tell. The man was de
cently dressed and evidently not a tramp.
Two letters were found cn his person
written at Wahoo, and as nearly as could
be deciphered the signature to the letter
was "Mrs. U. MeGag Meagher." The
body was brought to Fremont and unless
identified will be buried in the potter's
Washed off the Boat.
Wisxer, Neb., June 0. The high wat
er of last week swept away the iron
bridge over the Elkhorn, opposite Wisner,
and the citizens constructed a temporary
flatboat for the crossing of foot passeng
ers. At 1 o'clock today, while a party
of eiuht persons were crossing from the
west bank, the boat flipped, and the cur
rent being strong, swept the whole party
off. Lena Matthis, aged sixteen yeara,
Anna Matthis, aged five yeare. Otto
Matthis, aged eleven years, nil children
of Ferdinand Matthis, of this place, and
Franz Marx, a farmer living five miles
south of Wisner, were drowned. The wife
and eldest daughter and eldest son of
Ferdinind Matthis were sayed by the
prompt action of some who witnessed the
accident. The Matthis family were re
turning from the wedding of their son,
Frank, which took place last evening, six
mi'es south. An effort was made by the
citizens to recover the bodies, but the
high water and swift current made it im
possible'to do anything and the search

Last evening about 7 o'clock, Kittie
Grace, a child about three years old, and
Ralph Palmer, a boy about five or six,
were playing in the yard at the rear of
Mr. Jas. Grace's residence on Pearl street,
and were making preparations to partake
of a supper which the little girl had pre
pared for them on her little table. The
boy, thinking her table was not complete
and imagining he could improve on it by
makiag an addition in the way of drinks,
left for his home to procure some coffee.
He soon returned with what he supposed
to be coffee, but which proved to be lie,
and diyided up with his little hostess. It
is supposed he got the lie from a can
which had been left around carelessly at
his home. They each took a mouthful of
the lie but were conscious of their mistake
before swallowing anj' great quantity of
it, it beiug so strong. They soon re
ported their trouble by screaming which
attracted the attention of several of
the neighbors who soon went to their as
sistance. A doctor was soon summoned
and they were treated, after which their
severe burns were eased. As neither of
thein swallowed any of the lie they will
probably come out all right, but their
tongues are blistered terribly making
them white. The boy seems to be an un
fortunate lad, as he has just recovered
after being hooked in the neck by a cow
some time ago.
The funeral of the late Mrs. Cole
took place yesterday afternoon at the res
idence of her husband, Mr. W. WT.
Cole. The service was conducted
by Rev. W. B. Alexander, of the
M. E. church, and his sympathetic speak
ing, combined with the music which was
so effectively rended by a number of the
members of the M. E. church and others,
brought tears to the eyes of many of those
present. Every person who has had the
pleasure of an acquaintance with the
family, deeply smpathize with the bereav
ed husband and the motherless clhildren,
The extremely short illness and sudden
death seems to call forth a more severe
shock, and draws from the hearts of all,
the most sincere rpgret, and we are sure
no one could have been present at the
service yesterday without realizing the
most unutterable feelings of grief. The
remains were taken to the B. & M. depot
where they awaited the arrival of the
flyer. They were taken to her old home
at Lyons, N. Y., for interrment, where
Mr. Cole will remain for a couple of
weeks. Appended we giye a brief his
tory of her life: " Luanna L., wife of
W. W. Cole, was anatiyeof Lyons, N.Y.,
and was about thirty-eight years old. Rhe
was united in marriage to M.r. Cole in
November, 1871. She leaves behind her
husband and two children, aged fourteen
and seven, respectively, whose sorrows are
shared by many frinds. Mrs. Cole was
a true Christian woman, a loving com
panion, an affectionate mother, and a
good and kind neighbor. Her home has
been in Plattsmouth for the last four
years, during which time she endeared
herself to all with whom she came into
intimate acquaintanpe. The masf, of her
life she was a member of the Presbyterian
church, but lately she had been attending
the services of the M. E. church and we
are informed it was her purpose to have
united there had she been spared. " Jler
sickness, though brief, was severe. Most
of the time, during the last five days, she
was not rational. Her husband thicks
she had premonition of the approach of
death for some time, and from the be
ginning of her sickness she said that she
would, not recover.

Ls a Dark-Buy Pacer, irA hands high, weighing 1 ,C0 on:ils. His
close, compact luini and noted reputation for endurance ami speedy
proinv have justly earned for him the reputation, and encomium lrom
the Editor of the 'Sju V7 of 'tie Turf" that he i.s one of the Jiest Sires
ot the ao-e. His record is 2:2o', and has paced, trial tniles in 2:10.
His colts, Little I3ahv, 2:27il, and J. W. Jluey, 2:24 with more to
follow m the charmed circle this summer, i.s certainly a great showing,
and affords the public in tin's vicinity a grand opportunity to get
valuable horses at low prices. His service ot Slo. 00, with 2. 00 added
if not paid till after foaling, or s20 to insure colt to stand, is only the
price of a good ordinary horse, wliile horses of Siiakek Uoy'.s blood
lines receive trom $100.00 to $3uO.Oo in other localities. Horses of
this kind, if not wanted lor sporting purposes, can do more general
work on a farm, on account of their extra nerve power, than unv.ealdy
draft horse, and can go to town or to meeting in one half the time,
and time is money. Owners ot fine mares have a rare chance now for
one of the cheapest horses in the United States. Embrace the oppor-unity.
