The three conventions to be held
here August 11, at 2:00 p. ni., will
have eighty-six delegates to each con

republicans can be picked up in the
entire district is a hard proposition,
and the chances are that that part of
the show will be poorly attended.
The method of taking the water out
of the flooded cellars is callei siphon
ing. A stream one-eighth the size of
the one pumped out of the cellar is
used to create a vacuum, and the
water from the cellar flows out in a
constant stream. The amonnt of city
water used is not large.

Death of John Johnson.
John Johnson, residing southwest of
this city, died at noon today at the ad
vanced age of eighty-four years. He
came here from Holt county, Missouri,
in 1863, and has resided on the same
farm ever since. He leaves the fol
lowing children: W. T. Johnson of
Uemingford, Dick of Blair, Toby and
Mrs. Berger of this county. The
funeral will be held at Eikenbary's
cemetery tomorrow, but we could not
learn the hour.
Disinfect Your Cellars.
The result of the recent Hood is
liable lo be an epidemic of typhoid or
malarial fevers. Cellars tilled with
water cannot be dried out in a day,
and poisonous gases are all the time
rising from the ill-snrelling pools.
There is only one way to prevent the
threatened troub'e, and that is to pur
chase lime and cover the damp earth
with it. It will destroy all disease
breeding germs and leave your cellars
nice and clean. The matter is of such
vital importance that the city author
ities should see that it is done, that
the public health may be conserved.
Miss Mary Volnagle, at the age of
twenty-one years, departed this life
Wednesday, July 6, after an illness
dating back to last September. Her
ailment was consumption, and she
showed great patience and fortitude
during her last illness. She was a
member of the M. E. church at South
Omaha, and died in full faith of a
happy home in the other world. The
funeral will be held at 2:30 p. m.
Saturday, from the Evangelical
Lutheran church. Rev. F. H. Freund
officiating. Members of the A. O. U.
