Among the many causes given
for the Weeping Water church
burning Monday the Republican
gives the following: One is that

causing spontaneous combustion.

Mr. Ilindley of being the cause.
He said he warmed things up but
did not acknowledge doing the
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

How the Course ot True Love Leads
Over Great Mountains of Dlftl-
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.

World's Fair Notes.
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. ;

Hon. Joe Morse gave an entertain
ing lecture last evening at the opera
house to a comparatively small

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.

There seems to be a prevailing
opinion with the general public
that the appropriation asked from
the city by the Y. L. R. R. A. will, if
received, be used for purchasing
booka. We desire to correct this.
The appropriation was asked to
enable us to establish a public

used to pay the rent of a suitable

La Grippe.
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
