Mtss Hanna Black Departs for the
Death Bed of Her Sister, Capi
Last evening Miss Hanna Black re
ceived a telegram from her brother-in-law,
James Fogerty, the husband of
Capitola, her sister, from Roanoke, Vir
ginia, saying that if she wished to see
her sister alive to come at once. Miss
Hanna had been visiting at Omaha with
Mrs. Frank Richardson, and a letter
had come here yesterday addressed to
her, and was immediately forwarded to
her, but she came home on a late train,
and thereby missed her. When she
arrived home and found the message
awaiting her she had Mr. Moore go to
Omaha and get the letter for her, which,
when she had received it confirmed the
reports in the telegram, and giving
minute instructions as to how she should
come. Miss Hanna will depart on the
evening train at 5:12 this evening for
her sister's bedside. It is hoped that
she may arrive at the end of her desti
nation in safety, and that she may be
there in time to see her sister before
death. Mrs. Fogerty, nee Miss Capitola
Black, grew to womanhood in this city,
and is well known by everybody, and to
know her was to love her, for she is an
estimable type of womanhood, having
the kindliest of disposition, with a smile
and a gentle word for everybody. It is
very sad that she is thus stricken, and
will be the fourth of a family of five
which only a short time since were all
together, to answer the call of the
Death Messenger. This is a very severe
blow to Miss Hanna the losing of the
only remaining member of the family.
In this hour of her trouble she has the
sympathy of the entire community, who
have the greatest love and respect for
the two girls. Mr. and Mrs. James
Fogerty have lived in Roanoke since
their marriage, but a short time since,
where Mr. Fogerty is engaged in the
Roanoke and Western R. R. shops as
Death of Father Kelly.
i The venerable Father William Kelly,
who will be remembered by the old set
tlers among the Catholics of Cass coun
ty as one of the first priests who minis
! tered to them in Nebraska, passed
away yesterday at the Castelar St.
Convent, Omaha, at the ripe age of 88.
St. Philomena's Cathedral property,
where the aged priest had made his
. home for the past thirty or forty years,
in obedience to the exigencies of times
; and circumstances, was recently sold
and the resident priests assigned to
j various other places in the city. The
! change, no doubt, had a great deal to

1 Will Probably Move Here -
j Mrs. John Brady and daughter, Sally
who have been at Melton, Mo., attend
I ing the funeral of Mrs. Brady's mother
i who recently died, came in on the fast
j mail this afternoon. They were ac-
j companied by Mrs. Brady's daughter and j
j her husband, Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Will
iams, of Fairfax, Mo., who came to
visit with the Bradys and to look at
the city, with the intent of making this
place their home. Coming as the rel
atives of the Bradies, whom are excel
ent citizens, we welcome them to this
place and hope they may decide to make
this their home.
Will Not Remove
II. M. Craig said to us this morning
j that his saying that, "We will
move to the Spurlock house," meant
that he and his family would occupy
that for aresidence and not the Platts-
mouth Glove Company. The Glove
company will occupy the site which it
has for the past. They received their
new engine this morning for the fact
. ory, and have it installed. It runs
nicely, and gives promise of doing good
j residents are very desirous to avoid
J contact with the pest again. County
Commissioner Fredrich, of Cass county
was a caller at the health inspector's
office and informed Dr. Wilson that
quarentine has been declared on all
cases of small pox discovered, but that
there is some difficulty in enforcing the

cases at Mynard seem of a mild form,

Reports Northwest Prosperous.
Wm. Keil returned last evening from
a trip to North Dakota, and says re
garding that country, that it is develop
ing very rapidly and is the making of a
first class farming community. With
the growing of immense crops of wheat
and the selling of it at the prices now
obtaining there it cannot help but make
times in that country prosperons. Mr.
Keil says that yesterday he saw wheat
sell for $1.05 per bushel, and rye at al
most the same figure, it going at $1.02.
With the abundant crops which is pro
duced there, it appears as though if
prosperity did not perch upon their
banner it would not be worth while to
expect it anywhere.

New Engines for the Burlington.
Yesterday there passed through here
two monster engines for the Burlington,
destined to Lincoln. These are known
as the R 5 type, and are designed es
pecially for the pulling and making time
of heavy freight work. It is claimed
for them that on the ordinary roads and
grades, as in this state, they can handle
from 80 to 100 loaded cars. These two
engines, Nos. 2217 and 2218, were beau
ties as well as being designed for the
best of service. The train which pulled
them contained 83 cars, counting the
engines as a car each, while equal about
five cars, and which would have made
the train about 90 cars.
New Eldorado Discovered in
Bluffs Within Sight of
j A special from Glenwood under date
i of yesterday says: "It is reported here
that gold has been found in the hill or
bluff range south of Henton's station.
The recent find only verifies previous
discoveries, as at several times when
digging wells or getting material from
sand pits and rock quarries minute
particles of gold were noticeable. At
one time within the past five years,
during work on well digging, gold bear
ing sand was brought to the surface
and samples sent to assayers at Omaha
and Lincoln, bnt as the assayers' report
showed only $5 to $6 to the ton it was
not thought worth while to make an
extended search. It is likely that the
recent find will create interest and it is
within the realm of possibilitiey that
the grim, almost barren ridge on the
eastern side of the Big Muddy, will
rival Alaska in contributing to the

Afflicted with Sore Eyes for 33 Years.
I have been afflicted with sore eyes
for thirty-three years. Thirteen years
ago I became totally blind and was
blind for six years. My eyes were
badly inflamed. One of my neighbors
insisted upon my trying Chamberlain's
Salve and gave me half a box of it.
To my surprise it healed my eyes and
my sight came back to me. P. E.

Co., and riattsmouth Drug Co.
Shipping Alfalfa to Illinois.
Julius Pitz shipped a car of alfalfa
: hay to a party by the name of McCar-
j thy, of Sacramento, Illinois, yesterday, ;
I which brought him a very nice figure, j
I The price of alfalfa at this point is j
$11.00 per ton, and even the freight j
j added from here to Illinois would make
it come very high. This Nebraska of j
ours is getting to be a great place, j
when we are able to supply even the !
much boasted garden spot of the east j

Out of Sight
"Out of sierht. out of mind," is
old saying which applies with special '
force to a sore, burn or wound that's !
been treated with Bucklen's Arnica
Salve. It's out of sight, out of mind ;
and out of existance. Piles too and ,
chilblains disappear under its healing in- '
fiuence. Guaranteod by F. G. Fricke

Are Visiting in the West.
L. B. Johnson and wife, an engineer
running out of Jackson, Michigan, their j
home, came in this morning, and are ;
visiting at the home of Mrs. Johnson's
sister, Mrs. William Eallance. They '.
will depart in a few days for the west, '
stopping here on their way home.
The Deceased Married Only!
One Short Month Ago.
j Only one short month ago. Miss Alta
j B. Monk, of Riverton, Iowa, was wed
! ded to Frank Rasco, of Marysville, Mo., j
j and they came to this place, where Mr. j
Rasco had secured employment in the
I Burlington shops. Here, although among !
; strangers, and he employed in the shops j
as a means of making a livelihood, they
I lived happily together. During the ,
! time the young bride was attacked with
j appendicitis, and as her condition grew ;
daily worse, a physician was called, who !
when he saw the erravity of the case, '
told them there was only one hope and
that led through an operation, for relief,
but as the case was so far along and so
serious, that there was not much to !
hope for, even in that direction. Last
Sunday evening Mrs. Rasco was taken j
to the St. Joseph Hospital at Omaha, i
and Monday an operation was had. Her J
strength was not sufficient to recover.
While there was a slight rally, she j
never fully regained her strength from
the operation, and last evening passed
In the heyday of young womanhood,
in the beginning of their married life,
at the time when the full promise of
the future, with all its beauty and ex
pectation were before them, to be thus
cut off, is indeed a very sad ending of
the honeymoon. The sympathy of all
are with the young husband in his afflic
tion, and also with the parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Jesse Monk, of Hamburg, Iowa,
who were called to the deathbed of their
daughter. The remains will be taken
to Hamburg tomorrow night, and from
thence to the home near Riverton, for
the funeral and interment on Saturday,
at 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
