Charley McKntire and Mary Ur

Saturday evening, having escaped
the paternal roof tree and were de
termined to get married without
any further foolishness.
Mclntire had been balked so often
about procuring the license that he
came prepared to win, having with
Him J. M. Hartshorn and a Mrs.
Fitzgerald, who all swore that the
young lady was IS and could do as
she liked. Judge Kamsey thereupon
telephoned Tom Urwin, the unwill
ing father of the willing bride that
the affidavits were made and he
would have to grant the license, to
which Urwin only insisted on mak
ing them swear. The judge then
tied the nuptial knot in his blandest
manner and the Louisville elope
ment case was at an end. The
bride and groom returned after the
ceremony with their friends, where,
at last accounts all was again
peaceful and harmonious.

A. Monkey-Faced Bird.
Mr. R. D. Spelts has at his rooms
in the Latta block probably the
queerest bird ever seen in the west
and undoubtedly the strangest ever
captured in Nebraska.
twelve days ago a Mr. Foreman
captured it on the Blue river near
Seward, and its captivity seems not
to deter its existence or appetite in
the least. It is of the owl species
c . -. -
so rar as ey e ana lorm are con
cerned and also in . trait, for it
tueeps most oi the day and is more
active at night but the face or Head
is that of a monkey.
It feeds on rats, mice and fresh
meats, has a ravenous appetite and
at times shows fighting qualities
astounding. But as a general
thing it can be, if in a good Humor,
lifted from its box to the floor with
out any showing of battle.
Iu color it is a dark or dirty yel
low and in size is about like the or
dinary owl. The mouth is large
and the face as formed by the
feathers presents the appearance of
the monkey in every way. The
eyes also take on that quick action
characteristic of Jocko.
Several ornithologists of the city
as well as professors of schools
Have inspected the bird, but all are
at a loss to explain its origin or na
tivity. It makes no sound save that
similar to a crying- baby and Mr.
Spelts believes He has the wonder
of the age in this proud specimen.
It aiay be put upon exhibition at

From Tuexdau Daily
An attempt was made yesterday
to rob a bank at Valparaiso by three
men, which failed, owing to the vig
ilance of Mr. Chamberlain, the
cashier, and Mr. R. K. Johnson, who
had an office in the banking room.
Three men drove up about 3:a0 in
the afternoon, hitched their team
behind the bank and went in. Mr.
Johnson's suspicions were aroused
at once by the appearance and ac
tions of the men, one of whom en
gaged Mr. Chamberlain's attention
while another commenced to speak
to Mr. Johnson, the third, who car
ried a grain sack under his arm,
standing between the others.
Mr. Johnson saw this third one
give a signal to the one nearest to
Him, who immediately- drew a re
volver, but Mr. Johnson sprang to
one side and closed a door opening
behind the counter, and then ran
back to a cash drawer, which he
had taken the precaution to open
while talking to the man, and pulled
out a revolver. He snapped the
weapon several times at the man
with a revolver and received one
hot in return. Had the bullet been
half an inch closer it would have
killed Mr. Johnson, but as it was it
plowed a furrow across the back of
Meanwhile the one who was talk

volver and he dodged under the
counter. Crawling several steps to
one side he grabbed his revolver,
but by this time the scoundrels,
finding it was to be too Hot for
them, had skipped.
Two of the men ran around the
corner to where their team was
hitched, jumped in and drove off to
the northeast, leaving the third
man behind. The latter seemed to
have been bewildered and ran away
from the team.
