There is a strong probability that

front the Lincoln Journal is of inte

Shenandoah normal school with
Professor Roosc's Lincoln normal
universily is likely be successful, if
indications arc not decidedly mis-,
leading. Saturday evening a meet
ing was held in the school house
near the campus of Profess Roose's
location. It was largely attended
by property owners of the vicinity
and by prominent member of the
board of trade and real estate ex-
chnnge. The proposition was ex
plained by Professor Koose and
others, who stated that plans of the
buildingnlrvady in course of con
slrueliiui Heiv In be couipli'lcd and
a boardtng house built with a
capacity of am) boarders. In itd-
ditinn a power house must be
erected lor power, light and heat.

A Iteliuious Dehoifs.
A religious debate is in progress
it Kltnwood between Ivlder Allen,
pastor of the Baptist church at
I'i. ion, aud Rev. Potter, of Saline
county, of the Mormon persuasion.
The discussion began Tuesday
night, and, unless the time 11s
originally set has been extended,
the debate closed last evening. In
his report of the discussion to the
Union Ledger, an Klinwood corres-
pondent has the following to say of
the debate:
"The speakers have so far been
kind and patient toward each other
and have deinonmrated the fact
that debates can'Jfe held without
personal spite. As to their ubil
ities, Klder Porter co.nes as a repre
sentative of his faith, is Knglish by
birth, and is a fine speaker, and
while he seems to understand his
business from his standpoint, he is
not a sparkling orator, but a genial
and companionable man. As to
Ivlder Allen, he needs no commen
dation from me. lie is a nun
whose reputation as a skilled, fair
and scholarly debater stands in the
front ranks, and in this debate he
has more than met the expectations
of his friends, and last night his
onslaughts were so fearful and
unanswerable that his opponent
seemed to sit and gaze with amaze
ment, and yet while Allen shredded
the Mormon claims as by
whirlwind, his bearing toward his
opponent was that of a friend and
brother, and he plainly stated to
the congregation that if they came
to hear the Mormon prophet villi'
fied they might as well go home
He has now in this debate the
admiration of even his opponents
as a man who stands above per
sonal prowess or vindictive slang."

killed. The corpse was at once
taken in charge by Coroner Uiiruh
and conveyed to apart meats over
his place of business. As it lay up.
ou a stretcher it indeed presented
an thing but a pleasing scene.
The head was crushed into an un
recognizable mass. The skull was
crushed as it were a piece of
chinaware, while the brain, the
little that remained, was dangling
from the skull. The face was badly
bruised aud coveted with blood
rendering the scene sickening in
the extreme, lvvidenees tnat the
car-wheel had passed partly over
the abdomen were diseet liable. As
soon as practicable, Coroner Unrtih
cared for the corpse and rendered
11 111 as preseutauie condition as
I'lte accident happened a few
minutes before 7 last evening. The
1111I01 lunate in in was attempting
lo couple a Hat to a box car. The
Hal ear was loaded with heavy
timbers, which projected over the
ml of the car and the presumption
it first was, (lioitLiIi that view has
ici'it disproved by (lie coroner's
jury, that as lie stepped between
thecals his head was caught by
one of the timbers nnd ianimed
igainst the car with great force.
Htakeniati Wilson stated thai he
stood within eight or nine feet of
the man at Ihe time of the acc dent
and he kiiw the timber jam his
head against the ear and us the
train slacked he immediately drop
ped to the ground. Others testified
before the coroner's jury that Ihe
injury was more probably caused
by the car wheel.
The coroner empaneled the fol
lowing jury: Win. Weber, W. W.
Hull, I'M Fitzgerald, A. I). Despain,
B. Nobles, O. C. Dovey. About a
lo.en witnesses were examined aud
the following verdict was rendered:
At an iiiiiuisition hidden at
Piattsmoutli, in Cass county, ou the
lath day of December, A. I. lYll,
lelore nn', J. I. Uiiruh, coroner of
said couuty, upon Ihe body of John
Monroe, lying dead, by the jurors
whose names are hereunto sub
scribed, the said jurors upon their
n, lib say: That the said John Mon
roe came to his death while at
lemotinir to make n couplitiL'' in the
I'lattsmouth yard of the B. .V M.
Ii. Ii. Co. from accidentally falling
under the car wheel and the wheel
of the car running onto him; and
that, in our opinion, from the evi
dence and to the best of our belief,
no blame could be attached to the
company or its employees.

An amusing incident occurred som
time ago which illustrates the scanty
ceremony with which shabbily dressed
people are often treated. A country
magnate in the north of England was
called upon with reference to a scheme
for the furtherance of some local charity
by a person whom the servant, judging
by his timoworn uabihments, described
to his master as "either a beggar or a
tout for orders," adding that he had left
him in the hall, not thinking it safe to
bIiow him into one of tho rooms. Tho
"beggar or tout" turned out to be no
less a personage than tho member for
tho distnet, and one of tho richest men
in the county. London Tit-liits.
