SeatsDti sale at J. P. Young; popular prices, 50, 35 and 25 cent. tf Among the many causes given for the Weeping Water church burning Monday the Republican gives the following: One is that the doctrines conflicted by the min isters exchanging pulpit on Sunday causing spontaneous combustion. Durning the fire some one accused Mr. Ilindley of being the cause. He said he warmed things up but did not acknowledge doing the deed. ine report was circuiatea in or city that some parties in other places were making arrangements to move the sewing machine factory to Kearney, for the purpoee of securing a big bonus. The truth of the matter is hard to learn, but should such be the case the parties undertaking the scheme will have some costly suits on their hands that will deter them for a time at least, as well as the righteous in dignation of all our citizens. When J. Chase returns from Lincoln we will hear more about what will be done. Weeping Water Republican State Superintendent Goudy yes terday issued a circular to county superintendents asking for statis tics in regard to private schools, Nothing of the kind has ever been complied and the report will in clude all institutions of learning except the state universary and stated normal schools which are a part of the public school system The superintendent has also sen .out circulars urging school teach ers to observe in some fitting man ner the twenty-fifth anniversary of Jhe state on March 1. FREAK OF LOVERS. They run Away From Weeping Papa and Mamma and ... . get Married. i & i ! How the Course ot True Love Leads Over Great Mountains of Dlftl- cutties. Reports reaches this city jester- day of a social event at Lnion which is shaking that quiet village to its center. It is the elopement of two cousins named John W. A. Hird of Indiana, and Miss Osta Bird of that place, before the very eyes of the gill's parents. Young Bird has been on a visit with his uncle. For some time the young people have t-howed a marked attachment for one another. Yel this occasioned little comment. for both are of highly respected parents, their fathers being brothers. Time has gone on and the mutual lov. of the two young P"oyledias grown apace. The girl, Mis.- Bird however, was still young, and the idea that any seriou.-. inten tions ot marriage were entertained by young Bird, never entered the minds of her parents, Yesterday the accumulating ava- lanche of love bore away the two fond lovers with it. They could not resist. They must become one just at the soonest possible moment. They asked Papa andMamrna Bird, but they refused, since they were not of sufficient age. The disap pointed lovers put their heads to gether, and upon mature considera tion jointly ami severally, decided to elope like people did in books and newspapers. They started for the depot. They had plenty of time to catch the train and when they ar rived there they sat down to chuckle over the great "shake" they were giving the old people. But while they were sitting there in serene bliss, who should appear but the ferocious parents. They had got wind someway through a jealous rival of Miss Bird it is thought and hastened at once to the depot to head off the forward children. There worst fears were realized. There sat the consienceless ones, smirking sweetly, but with two tickets stamped for Nebraska City. It shocked the good old people; but their courage returned as soon as they recollect that these refractory ones were the same creatures whom they had spanked in former days for lesser offences. They girded themselves for the strife and set about to pursuade by threats, then by tears and supplications their children from their mad course. But it availed not. The train came, and from under the very tearful noses of the parents they stepped upon the train platform and were spirited way in a trice. They arrived at Nebraskn City yesterday and proceeded to get the necessary license, and go through the perfunctorj' ceremony. It was a lotof fun although; and they en-I joyed themselves hughly all after noon. But it was ticklish business getting the license. Yet that was finally procurred from J udge Eaton, and they wee married at the Central House by Justice White. The couple then took the train tor Delaware county Indiana where the groom lives. There John has a farm and they will live as happy Hoosiers. Nebraska City Press. Go to Gering A Co. lor your pre scription work. tt Skipped by the Liht of the Moon. J. V.

The North Carolina legislature failed to make an appropriation for a worjd-a jair exhibit. Whereupon the state board of agriculture an nounced that it would undertake to provide all necessary means and superintend the collection of an ex hibit that will be creditable to the state. It is the intention to have the state building at the exposition a reproduction of the state capitol. The exposition authorities have tendered to the shoe and leather manufacturers a site for their de sired building in which to make a united exhibit of the feather indus try. A site was selected twice be fore, but had to be withdrawn owing to changes in construction plans. The site now offered is near the lake hore, not far from the dairy building. There is little doubt that the leather men will ac cept the site, and, if they do, they will put up a building 150x600 feet, costing $100,000. A practical, working business college, which is purely an Amer ican institution, will be one of the exhibits at the fair. New South Wales has asked for 300,000 square feet of space. The watchmakers of Switzerland, at a recent convention in Berne, de cided to make an exhibit at Chicago of their finest and costliest watches, but not to attempt any competition with American manufacturers in cheaper grades. They have ap plied to the Swiss council for financial and other aid to enable them to make a creditable exhibit. In Colorado's exhibit will appear a very complete showing of the flora of the state. Miss Alida P. Lansing, who has been in charge of the matter, gathered more than 1,000 varieties last summer, including fifteen or more which had never been classified. ; . f The social and oyster supper at E. R. Todd's last evening was a big success. Judge S. M. Chapman returned from his trip to Chicago this morning. John McCaig, one of Cass county's most prosperous farmers, is in the ciiy to-day. W. E. Brooks, of Omaha, repre senting the Union Life Insurance Co., is in the city to-day. Chas. Wickersham left for Blair this morning to see his wife who is visiting there and was taken sick. Superintendent G. W. Noble and J wife are in the city to-day looking for a suitable house in which to move. It is reported that a large sized fracas occi-rred at the Cottage house yasterday between the land lord and one of the boarders, in which the landlord came out best. The case of Brantner vs. Hans Frahm is still pending in police court. Brantner and Frahm both appearnd this morning and agreed to settle, Frahm paying the costs, but after he found what the costs were he refused to pay them. A constable from Council Bluffs came down this morning and got a watch that a man had stolen and sold Frank Carruth A Son last December. The fellow also stole an overcoat. He was caught in Texas and is now in jail in Council BlufJs. Hon. Joe Morse gave an entertain ing lecture last evening at the opera house to a comparatively small audience. Mr. Morse is a pleasing and entertaining speaker and held his audience spellbound by his graphic description of battles. His description of the naval battle on Mobile Bay was immense. Also the battles of Lookout Moiintain, Missionary Ridge and - Chica maugua. The lecture waa fine, and those who failed to hear it missed a great treat.

No healthy person need fear any dangerous consequences from an attack of la grippe if properly treated. It is much the same as a severe cold and requires precisely the same treatment. Remain quiet ly at home and take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy as directed for a se vere cold and a prompt and com- ?lete recovery is sure to follow, his remedy also counteracts any tendency of la grippe to result in pneumonia. Among the many thousands who have used it during the epidemics of the past two years we have yet to learn of a single case that has not recovered or that has resulted in pneumonia. 25 and 50 cent bottles for sale by F.
