DEATH OF FORMER CASS COUNTY LADY Mrs. E. G. Cooley Who Recenty Died at University Place. The Lincoln Journal, in speaking of Ihe death of a former Cass county lady, says: "Mrs. Etta M. Cooley, whose death was recently announced, was born on August 2, 1TG1, on her father's homestead in Cass county, three miles east of Avoca. Her father, Riley Can ady, was one of the first settlers in that part of the county. He died when his daughter was seven years of age, and her mother was left to rear a family of five children, which she did without leaving the farm. Etta Canady attend ed the district school and the Weeping Water academy. In September, 1S0, she married K. G. Cooley. They lived in eastern Nebraska until last April when they removed to University Place. Mrs. Cooley had been in poor health for about five years, but her last illness dated only from about the first of De cember. She leaves a family of six children. Besides being devoted to her family, she was a devout member of the M. E. church, and gave it much of her strength and affection. She will be remembered with love by all who have known her during her useful life." Sold Short Weight Butter. County Attorney Rawls served' notice on several merchants at Weeping Water that complaints had come to him of their selling pound prints of butter for a pound and that these never held out weight, and cautioned them that the practice must cease or prosecutions would follow. This put an end to a pernicious practice that has caused ho end of ''kicks." Some farmers that used to trade here made the practice of moulding their butter that way and wanted the merchants to count the prints instead of weighing the whole bulk. This would not do so they took their butter to Weeping Water where the merchants did that way in order to hold their trade, selling the prints as pounds. Of course the grocer lost nothing but the consumer did and they made a kick with the above results. We would advise farmers to see to it that eggs they sell in the future have j no chickens in them and that they are wholesome, or they may turn up with a fifteen dollar fine to pay. The public have a right to have good wholesome food, and when a laboring man who earns his money by hard toil, buys a dozen eggs 'he should have just that many good eggs. The price you get will compensate for the losses you may sustain in culling out the bad. Food Commissioner Johnson has served notice on all that the law will be strictly and rigidly enforced. Nehawka Register. Hit Him Again It is with great satisfaction we learn from the Plattsmouth News that the law passed by the republican house of representatives, passed by the senate and endorsed by the president, controll ing the business of the newspapers, is not a law at all and that it has been misconstrued by the democratic press. Our republican friend seems to think that because one democratic paper pub lished a certain report that that report was true, while the one published by all other papers was wrong. It would seem so from the Plattsmouth News. We know what the law has to say in regard to delinquent subscribers, and the unfair advantage it takes of all publishers. It says that newspaper publishers have no right to manage their own affairs That is the law. The law supposedly was aimed at a few fake newspapers, but the bluderbus load of the bill hits all honest papers, regardless of politics. It is a law that strangles all honest newspapers and will not reach the fakes. Nebraska City News. Dislocated Hip at Play. This afternoon D. J. Lair and family returned from a visit for the past week at Hamburg, Ia.f - where they were called by the death of Mr. Lau's father last Sunday. While there the boys were at play on an old straw pile. The two Lair boys, Ralph and "Red," with two cousins, all about twelve or thirteen years of age, would get on top of the straw pile, and all grab hold of each other, forming a human ball, jump and roll down the side of the stack. It worked pretty well at first, but was found to be costly, when the last time Master Ralph Lair, fell under the crowd, dislocating his hip joint. A physician was immediately summoned and the dislocation was replaced, and since Ralph has had to remain still and will be sometime before he is able to move about very freely. He thinks he has enough of that kind of sport for the present. To My Many Friends; Those who have in kindness, con tributed to my appointment as super intendent at the county farm, I wish in this way to extend my most sincere thanks for the favors shown. I also wish to extend my thanks to the county commissioners for the favorable gen enally. I shall care for the interests of the county and taxpayers to the best of my ability. J. H. Tams. Are Visiting in the East. E. G. Meisinger and W. II. Mei singer departed last evening for Illi nois, where they will visit at many places. Their first stop is expected to be at Pekin, where E. G. Meisinger was born and lived until he was some nine or ten years of age, but has not been there since. W. H. Meisinger was born in Cass county anil never has been in Illinois before, and this will be his first visit. The young men will expect to stay for about two weeks and perhaps longer. Walks Off The Bridge. Not long since one of our young men was returning at night from a visit to his Dulcina del Tahosa. The night being dark, and the way delirous, it was next to impossible to find his way, and at the crossing of a creek, which come? down from the Wiles farm, and wanders down Washington avenue, where it crosses Locust street, the bridge is approaching, comingthis way, from the north side, and after crossing the bridge, the walks take the south side of the street. At this place he became entirely confused, and like a boat without oar, spar or rudder, he lost his bearings and walked off the edge of the bridge, and into two feet of water, not getting out until he had floundered around for some time, to the detriment of his best Sunday suit, and kindly disposition. When we reported the matter of J. C. Brady stepping off the bridge on the other side of the river some time since, he thought we had re fered to him, but we did not know of his experience then. Organized Agriculture. The nineteen societies of Organized Agriculture meet at Lincoln during the week of January 20th. Discussions will be had on every subject of importance to the farmer. The evening sessions will be occupied with addresses from very prominent men and on Friday night Governor and Mrs. Sheldon will hold a reception at the Governor's mansion to which every one in attend ance is invited. These winter meetings will be attended by more than three thousand of our progressive farmers, and are glad that such an opportunity is given for our farmers to meet with the men who have the most advanced ideas for the advancement of agricul ture. Breaks His Collar Bone Claude Severs, who was recently in the city in attendance at the wedding of his sister, Miss Bessie Severs, to Mr. Frank Rennis, returned home last Sunday evening. Wednesday evening he went with a crowd of men at Grant, Nebraska, his home, on a wolf hunt. During the hunt he had the misfortune to have his horse stumble and fall as it ran over some uneven ground, throwing him in such a way that he sustained a broken collar bone. Claude is laid up for the present, but just how severe his injuries are is not known as the re ports of the accident were meager. Injured His Eye. Thomas Henderson, living at Rock Bluffs, while working with some trees which he had cut down, ran the end of a limb which he had cut from the tree, in his left eye, lacerating it badly and leaving a piece of the wood in the in jured member. He with his brother, Will, and Will Smith came to the city immediately, and had a physician re move the piece of wood and dress the eye. While there is no real danger of injuring the sight, the eye is very sore and will be for some time. Departed For Home. Nicholas Simons, wife and daughter, Miss Mary, departed this afternoon for their home in Chicago, after a visit for the past week in the city with friends, guests at the home of Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Thrall. Mat Leuck and wife enter tained in honor of them last evening at their home on North Third street. Those present were Mat Leuck, wife and son, Nicholas Simons, wife and daughter, Mary, and E.

Mr. Rainey has the ability to make a success of the livery business and will win out. Union Ledger. Elemwood Gets Reunion. Elmwood so royally entertained the Grand Army boys at the district re union last year that when that town maee a bid at the meeting'held at Lin coln this week it was plain to see that unless some other town offered mighty good inducements that Elmwood would be the place chosen. Ashland made a hard fight for the rounion, but when a vote was taken the Cass county town won easily. Louisville Courier. C. G. Mayfield, the barber, was in Omaha today on business. A HOST EUOVABLE i Mr. and Mrs. F. R. Guthman Celebrate Their Thirtieth Wedding Anniversary With a Large Number of Friends Could we have been here thirty years ago last evening, we might have heard a crowd. of boys and younir men with horns, bells, tin pans anil all the other paraphernalia essential for making the night hideous with unearthly noises. If we had looked for the cause of all this hubbub, we should have learned that Francis R. Guthman and Miss Anna M. Pankratz had just been united in marriage, and the boys were bent on showing them a good time. Last even ing was the thirtieth anniversary, as they were married on the 10th of Janu ary, 1878. As a fitting acknowledg ment of the esteem held by the many friends of this kind and genial couple, a large number gathered at their home last evening to celebrate the comple tion of the third decade of their mar ried "life. At their pleasant home in this city could be heard the sounds of revelry, for there were congregated those who Changes at the Shops. The rumor is current that sweeping changes are to be made in the foreman ship in the supply department of the Burlington shops, to take place in the near future. We have reliable infor mation, that the changes are to be made which effects a number of men. W. L. Cooper, it is stated, who was formerly storekeeper at this place, but was given a position in Chicago when the Mr. Josselyn came here, will be given the foremanship of the lumber yards, while L. A.

A new office has been, created, which shall be known as the general foreman of the store house, and C. O. Richards has been selected for that position.

Music rose with a voluptuous swell, and "all went merry as a marriage bell."

The South Bend Way. Emil Stutzenegger, merchant prince of South Bend, was in the city this morning, and told of a social event in their town, which transpired last Thursday. There is a woman in that stirring little city, who having lost her husband, has three children to support, and is doing nobly in that direction, but finding nothing to do in that place ex cept washing, finds the living as de rived therefrom very meagre. The Modern Woodman of America, j practicing the principles they profess, gave a box social, at which they sold baskets, boxes, and other things, con j taining suppers, which the purchaser ate with the doner. From the sale of these they realized someting like $41.00, and with the cakes and other things which were left over, they increased the receipts to the round sum of $54.00, which went to the benefit of the woman and her children. The social was held in the Woodman hall, and was a grand success in a social way, everybody enjoying them selves, added to the fact that they were all doing a noble thing for the deserving of the city. The funds were placed in the hands of three kindly dis posed ladies of the village, who shall act as the advisory board with the un fortunate woman in the expenditure of the amount. This is the kind of charity we like, and should be the basi.s of the action of all societies. It is Now Grandpa Leesley.. Word comes from Kansas that the stork has visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Ingalls, Mrs. Ingalls, for merly was Miss Irene Leesley and presented them with a fine boy, of the regulation weight, and both mother and son doing well and the father happy. This explains why a man in this city, who has recently came to the estate of Grandpa, was so assiduously seeking in the city for a large barrell. He must have wanted it to put his head in and hollow Grandpa, Grandpa, to hear how it would sound. There is nothing just like it, he is only going through the ex perience that many more have had in the days gone by. Appointed His Son. For some time past there have been rumors galore regarding as to whom Judge H. D. Travis was going to ap point as court reporter. Some of the republicans contended that it could be no one else but J. S. Taggart and the democrats here asked for the appoint ment of Harry Northcutt, but Judge Travis would not give any of them any satisfaction, but stated that he was re sponsible for the affairs of the court and would appoint some one whom he con sidered capable of filling the position. This morning -District Clerk E. H. Finigan received official notice from Judge Travis, stating he had appointed his son, Mr. Earl R. Travis, for the po sition.
