A Severe Storm.
One of the liveliest electrical storms
of the season visited Plattsmoutli last
evening, and stirred things up some
what. The rain fall was not very
heavy but the thunder rolled as though
several cyclones were going to give us a
call. The second ward seemed to be
the one the storm was after, the light

Herman Scmidt's. striking and splint

Striking John Wayman's house. At
Mr. Bennett's and the near neighbors,
the folks were well shaken up, but no
one was injured. John Wayinan was
engaged in a game of chess, when his
house was struck, but we understand
the game was continued without inter
ruption. It is fortunate that no injur
ies were received by any in the city, as
I he storm was a most severe one.
Capt Reunett relates some interesting
experience and sights the result of his
visit to Saute Fe while on his western
trip. Capt was down among the Mexi

time of the discovery of the country. A
two pronged stick is the plow they use,

sickle the grain as fast as cut being
oaded on Burron and tal. n to the
threshing ground. Tho threshing is
done by treading the grain out with a
flock of goats and a Mexican who owns
a dozen of them goes around taking in
threshing; the grain is tramped out in
the sand afterward sifted out by hand.
When it comes to grinding it they have
old mills, two stones one upon the other ;
the uppjr stone turns upon the nether
one just as fast asaBurrou can walk
around and no faster. Mr Bennett

Professor Drummoud delivered a very
interesting and instructive lecture at
the High school, Thursday evening, on
the subject of Chemistry, that was list
ened to by a large audience of teachers
and others interested in school work.
The Professor, by the aid of his chemi
cals and apparatus, made clear and in
teresting many tedious and obstruse
points in descriptive and analytical
chemistry He showed the gases of
which the air is composed, giving the
nature of each one when apart from
the others, and illustrated the numer
ous experiments, the many queer prop
erties of oxygen and nitrogen. He
ohowed the value of ventilation, and in
fact throughout handled the subject in
a manner that showed he wa3 perfectly
conversant with it.
In conversation with the teachers
who have been in attendance at the
institute we find them without ex
ception, commending Prof. Drum
mond's methods of instruction very
highly. He having had three of the
most difficult classes to teach, Phi
losopln, Physiology and Algebra,
the eulogiiims of our High School
principal are appreciated by his
friends here.

A New Fire Escape.
Mr. M. M. Ormsby, of David City, is
in the city exhibiting an invention of
his own, which ought to prove a useful
one. It is a combined fire escape and
hook and ladder. It is a series of lad
ders and adjustable platforms, moving
on wheels and can be used on the largest
buildings. It is intended to be used as
a part of the property of a city fire de
partment, to be used whenever occasion
requires. It is as easy of transporta
tion as a hook and ladder truck, and
needs but a minute's time to adjust it
ready for use. With this a large build
ing$ may soon be emptied and those
within enabled to safely descend upon
the ladders. Three sizes are made, the
largest being suited to an eight-story
building. A swing cradle is attached
to it by which a sick person may be
taken out, bed and all, and lowered to
the ground. The working of this fire
escape is said to be complete' Mr.
Ormsby will explain its use to any one
who may desire to understand it. He
hopes to make a sale to the city council
for the use of the Lincoln fire depart
ment. State Democrat.

Idaho Springs August l'J. Our '.own
was startled this morning at 10 o'clock
with the announcement t!-at Dr. A. M.
Nozon, one of the oldest resident of
the city, had been found le:id in the
oflice of the .Summit Tunnel and Mln -ing
company, of which company he
was tho president.
The following fact have thu
been made known : For some months
pat the Doctor claimed that his home
was a very unhappy one. To the wiit-
er he said there wa a wuui ol congeni
ality on the part of wife, although
lie said that she had been a tlcvott d
mother to their children, but that his
life had been made so unhappy that
nothing but a separation could ensue,
and to that end he had yesterday con
sulted Governor Bryan, and had lum
call upon Mrs. Noxou to sec what ar
rangements could be made. Through
the intervention of IJoveraor Bryan an
agreement ot separation wai drawn up,
tho doctor conveying all of his improv
ed real estate to his wife and family.
A truly loving husband and ui'lnK'fnt
father thus separate! from the
family he dearly loved. All yesterday
afternoon he was brooding over it, and
in conversation with the writer he
claimed that death was preferable to
such a lite. Being an old friend, I
tried to reason him out of such
thoughts, and last evening remained
with him in his cilice until 11 o'clock,
at which time I left him, he promising
to make a trip up Soda creek. At 7
a. m. 1 called at the oilice, hut con Id
not get in, the lock beinr caught in
side. I called ajcain at dim-rent times.
and at last consulted Mr. (Jeorge A.
Patten, when we agreed to wait until
10 a. m., and if he did not reply to us,
to get in. At that hour Mr. Patten
again tried the door, and then consult
ed Mr Blair, of the Tuttle Hardware
company, over whose store the office is
Together we broke away the heavy
paper oyer the transom, when Mr. Blair
got in and opened the door for us. On
the lounge the doctor's body was found,
he having been dead for some hours.
Acting-Coroner II. C. Bowman, Justice
of the Peace, will hold an inquest this
afternoon. Witnesses have heen sum
moned and an inquest will L held this
Iu an examination of the body, a (if
teengrain bottle of morphine was found.
Mrs. Noxon is almost insane iu the loss
of her husband. The doctor leaves a
family of fiva children, the three eldest
being boys from 16 to 20 years of age,
one daughter aged 11 years and a boy
two and a half years of age.
1 Here is nothing mat eon id nave so
shocked this community as the
of one who had been so man)- jears
among them, and to whom he was en.
deared by so many acts of generosity.
To the writer he has been more than
a friend. No brother could have been
more closely allied in friendship and
affection. than was he.
Dr. Noxon is well known in the East,
especially in Cincinnati, w here he re
sided many years. He has been a
resident of this town since lSlil. He
was 61 years of age.
A jury consisting of Messrs. D. Fai
ver, J. M. Graham, Henry Pluiumer, V.
Knoetledge, John McEweu and F. F.
Osbiston was empanelled by Acting
Coroner II. Bowman, Justice of the
Peace, to examine into the cause of the
death of Dr. A. M. Noxou. After hear
ing the testimony of Drs. Richmond and
Brummond, who made the autopsy.
and other witnesses, rendered a verdict
that the said Dr. A. M. Noxon came to
his death by an overdose of morphine.
The funeral of the deceased will take
