Death of Mrs. Chas. Lyman
It was a great surprise to the peo
ple of Weeping Water when the news
came last Sunday afternoon that Mrs.
Joyce Davis Lyman was dead. Her ill
ness was of short duration, except that
she has been afflicted with lung trou
ble for about three years contracted
while on her claim in South Dakota. A
few days previous to her death she was
bedfast from a hard cold. Her husband
who was at Venango, making prepar
tion to go to house keeping, was sent
for and arrived Saturday noon.
Mr. and Mrs. Chas, Lyman were
married in Omaha, Dceember 26, 1907,
and they came back to Mrs. Lyman's
parents near Nehawka the following
day. She did not leave the home place
except for a visit with relatives here
until her death, but they expected to
get located in Venango as soon as pos
sible. The funeral was set for this Wednes
day, at one o, clock p. m. at the home,
and as deceased was a believer in Chris
tian Science it was expected that she
would be buried with that service, and
interment made in Mt. Pleasant cemet
ery. On account of the storm the funeral
was latter postponed until Thursday.
The many friends of the husband,
and family of deceased, deeply sym
pathize with them, knowing that words
fail to comfort only as expressing their
love for the dear departed, and those
bereaved. Weeping Water Republican.

Perplexing Problem Threatens
The railway commission has received
a letter from a prominent railroad man
in which the statement is made that T.
E. Spens, of the Burlington, is going
about over the state working up senti
ment in favor of a bill which he intends
to have introduced in the next legisla
ture. Mr. Spens is placed in the atti
tude of representing that all of the rail
roads in Nebraska will support the bill.
The writer of the letter desires the
commission to understand that his road
has taken no nuch stand on the pro
posed measure, but if the commission
desires the bill passed he will give the
matter due consideration and perhaps
do all in his power to get the bill pass
ed. He says the measure which Mr.
Spens is pushing is copied from an old
English statute which provides that if
any woman obtains a promise of mar
riage by the use of paint, powder, false
hair, manufactured smiles or the use of
padding of the figure, in such cases the
promise and the marriage, if any mar
riage has been performed, shall be null
and void. Secretary Clark Perkins will
submit the matter to the members of
the commission. Lincoln News.
