A jolly crowd assembled at the home

Wednesday evening, March i!, to join
In celebrating Miss Ida's birthday.
The visitors came supplied with
plently of good things to eat, when at

which all did ample justice. Covers
were laid for twenty-six.
The evening was most pleasantly
spent in cards, music and social con

highly delighted with their evening's
enjoyment. All unite in the hope that
Miss Ida may live to enjoy many inure

Now, Fred, that, pine cone has a his
tory, or rather a queer and accidental
few tacts connected with it from the
day I liist seen it. It was like tills:
Put a lew years back old Nevada Pill
and 1 supplied ourselves with saddle
mules, and each with a good burro ( for
pucking purposes) madea foiirmont lis'
ramble through the wilds of Arizona,
where we found abundance of time
killing amusements, and as for deer
and elk we had plenty, (i rouse and
sage hens were also plentiful. 1 once
made a hasty shot from saddle and
slight lycrlppied a black bear. Nevada
Pill linlshed him. 1 gave Pill the hide.
We camped and jerked the meat. We
killed many coyotes and wolves, ami
only what elk and deer we actually
needed. We brought, in several wild
cat pelts, and also two l ull hides of the
mountain lion (or cougar.) Pill bag
ging oire of the latter and I the other.
Rill had a heavy, big bore ri lie gun.
One morning as we were sitting near
the lire, eating our breakfast, I hap
pened to discover the lion that fell to
me. I brought It into hasty use, made
along shot and brought this small-
sized lion down, witli apparently all
ease. Pill walked toil, took oiit its
entrain, shouldered it, and brought it
iir bragging all I be while about my tine
shot. Where the facts are is this: It
was a scratch shot rather than other
wise, it, being 120 yards distant.
That pine cone came like this: We
were one day nooning, ai.d both land
Pill were lying asleep in high pine
timbers. Rattlesnakes were out. One
rattler had selected a nice place near
my head. All went well, until soon
a sudden, noisy crash came which
brought me to my feet. This crash
was the falling of this pine cone from
the top of a high pine tree, it falling
directly onto this reptile, killing it, or
so near so that 1 soon dispatched him.
I was then anxious to save the cone.
1 had one other cone, much larger than
that one, but it wasspoiled by "Teddy"
my pack burro falling and rolling down
the mountain, where but half the t ime
Teddy was on top, ami t lie oilier half
the pack was on lop; at any rate, the
big cone was ruined.

of scholars in attendance has dw indled

parochial school of the Lutheran
church, where (iennan and religion is

W. Smith Hines Gets Damages to the Ei
lent cf 57C0 for Stolen Affections.
Perhaps the most sensational suit
that ever found a place upon the court
records of Cass county, was the lliucs
CtinnaPy damage suit which occupied
nearly all of last week in the district
court. The facts brought to light
were ut a most sensational nature, and
the court room was crowded each day
w itli eager listeners.
The action was brought by Smith
Mines against, John W. Connally to
recover the sum of $1.","0() damages,
charging the defendant with alienat
ing the affections of his wife. There
were in the neighborhood of fifty wit
nesses examined. The testimony at
times was very revolting and much of
it unlit to be listened to. Hines for
merly resided near Wabash, at which
place, it is claimed, that Connally was
wont to pay visits to Mrs. Hines, and
it was from that vicinity that most of
the witnesses, pro and con, came from.
It was brought out during the trial
that the intimacy that existed be
tween the two began In April, PJOIt,
and continued for the space of about
six months. While the defendant did
not presume to deny that such inti
macy did exist, he claimed that he
had, previous to the institution of this
suit, settled in full with I lines in the
shape of a lease to him of a farm near
Murray, on which Mr. and Mrs. Hines
are now making their home.
The testimony was all in Friday,
and after argument by the attorneys,
was handed over to the jury. Those
who heard the arguments in the case
are a unit in the opinion that Mr. tier
ing made a great plea in behalf of his
client, the plaintiff. The case was
not considered a dilllcult one on the
part of the defendant any more than
It was considered ho on the part of the
plaintiff, and the Journal cannot see
how any sensible person can construe
it so. The attorneys started in on the
even-bct-plan about as many were of
the opinion that one side would win
out as the other. If anything the
general opinion of those who heard the
testimony thought Hines would not
be granted a cent of damages by the
The defendant's side of the case was
conducted by Pyron Clark, assisted by
lion. William Deles Dernier of Kl raw-nod,
and C. A. Rawlsof Ihiscitj.
From the length of time that the
jury was out, it was a fair indication
that the members of that body were
in somewhat of a ipiandary as to the
amount of damages. We learn from
one of the jurymen that there were
some who favored an amount away up
into the thousands, while others
favored the nominal sum of $10.
1 1 is the iiope of the Journal that
another iase of like character may
never appear on record on the court
docket of Cass county again, as much
of the testimony was very disgusting.
Box Social at Cullom.
The Name Social and Pox Supper at
Cullom School House, given by the
teacher, Miss Anna R. Kanka, Satur
day night, .March 2'i, was a success

Re fore the auction sale or the boxes
a program of twelve numbers was
given by the scholars which was vastly
enjoyed by visitors.
About 10::i: p. in. thn sale began,
Mr. John llirz acting as auctioneer

to the great abilities of both auction

the boxes were sold, All but three of
them sold for one dollar, or more. The

A Team of Mules Stolen.
Louis Ingwerson, living about five
miles southeast of Weeping Water,
had a team of mules, harness and
buggy stolen from his premises some
time during the night of the 2Uh, or
early Friday morning. The thief Is
supposed to have headed north, and it
Is believed the outfit crossed the Platte
river bridge at Louisville. From all
appearances it would seem that the
party or parties securing the team
knew where to look for the best, and
apparently had an eye on the stolen
property before the night of the theft.
One was a brown mare niiile and the
other of a mouse color. They were In
pretty fair condition and weighed
alout 1,100 pounds each. They are
about six years of age,' and the entire

was not Hied early Friday morning, and
immediately Issued notices offering $,10
reward for the recovery of the prop
erty and the capture of the thief. Up
to the present no information that
will lead to their capture has been re
ceived. A reward of $.K)0 has been of
fered for the recovery of the team, bug
gy, harness and the arrest and convic
tion of the thief.

home merchant,"said oneof our prom
inent fanners to a Journal reporter
last Saturday, "lie will take our pro
duce and it wc treat him right he will
do as well by us as the mall order
houses or Omaha merchants. We have
one great advantage In dealing with
the home merchant and that Is, wecan
inspect ids goods and groceries before
we buy them and if they don't suit us
we don't have to buy. I believe it isa
good idea to see everything you buy be
fore you take it, because the samples
those distant houses send out may nob
represent the bulk. Sometimes In
sending oil" for goods, bungling mis
takes are made and then you cannot
help yourself. These men from the
distant cities do not care; your money
is what they are after whether you arc
satislied or not. My motto is to trade
a itli the home merchant and we will
he belter satislied in the end with our
selves and everything else." This is
the sentiment of a great many farmers,
and to secure an increase of this trade
all our merchants will have to do is to
put forth a special effort and reach out
after it.
Stay With the Home Paper.
"instance lends enchantment."
When a man gels a thousand or fifteen
hundred miles from his old home, then
more than ever he appreciates tho
weekly paper that was wont to visit
him regularly before stakes were pulled
and the start was made in the direc
tion of the setting sun. In the new
home many old time conveniences and
luxuries arc conspicuous by their ab
senceijinuTof them are more so than
the paper that tells of the movement
of friends left behind. No wonder,
then, that the means Is soon forth
coming for renewal of the subscrip
tion that was allowed to lapse when
the change or location took place.
Change your location if you choose,
but remember that to keep posted and
be entirely happy you must have the
old home local paper pay its weekly
visits to your llresidc.
