Young Mzn C&ughf Stealing
and FMes a Daspsrale Ef
fort to Oct &?cy.
This afternoon at about 3 o'clock,
while M. Fanger was out, a young man
came in and after making a few inquir
ies succeeded in secreting a pair of
shoes, two pairs of pants and two vests
under his coat, stepped out and made
away. Miss Margaret Weber, one of
the clerks, immediately ran to the bar
ber shop of A. J. Trillity, where Mr.
Fanger had gone, and pointed out the
man to Mr. Fanger, telling him the
young man had taken some clothing.
Mr. Fanger and R. W. White, who
chanced to be in the barber shop, gave
chase and captured the young man in
the saloon of Ed Donat, with the clothes
in his possession.

Raney took him to tha police court,

was called for the purpose of filing a
complaint. While preparing the com
plaint, the man, who gave his name as
Chas. I. Webb, became so abusive to
Mr. Fanger that Mr. Rawls ordered the

main until he sobers up before having
him arraigned. While awaiting for the
preparing of the complaint he rolled a
cigarette, and was forbidden by Judge
Archer from smoking it and became
abusive to the aged judge. He was
taken to the jail and later will be ar
raigned, charged with petty lar;eny.

At the office of the county judge in
the presence of a few relative, the
ceremony uniting the lives of Joseph
Harasky, aged 21, and Miss Elsie Lee,
aged 16, was performed by his honor,
Judge A. J. Beeson. The office had
been closed and the judge gone home
and a messenger had to be dispatched
for him. The father of the bride,
James Lee, was present and gave his
consent to the union, as was required,
the young lady being under age. The
young people have grown up in this
community where the groom is a cigar
maker in the employ of Julius Pepper
burg. The bride is well known by
many of our people, having attended
the high school at this place for the
past two years. They will make their
home in this city and Mr. Haraskey
will continue in the employ of the
above mentioned cigar factory. The
Journal joins with their friends in
wishing them all the joys of life which
it is pcssible to attain.
Death Messenger Comes io
Miss Lizzie Krcehler,
While at House
This morning, while in the act of
making bread for the daily use, Miss
Lizzie Kroehler answered the call of
the Death Angel. Mrs. John Miner
has just stepped in from across the
street on an errand, and was converr
ing with the young lady when she
was stricken, and dropping her work
was sinking to the floor when Mrs.
Miner ran to her support, and getting
her to a couch, telephoned for Mr.
Louis Kroehler, her brother, and other
relatives, her father George Kroehler,
Mrs. D. B. Ebersole, her sister, and
Dr. Livingston. Louis, who was at the
store, closed the place instantly and
mounting his bicycle, was at home in a
few moments, but his sister knew
nothing when he arrived, passing away
in about fifteen minutes. Mrs. Andrew
Kroehler, who lives a few blocks away,
had arrived by that time. Dr. Stuart
Livingston arrived just as she passed
away, but as the stroke of Paralysis
had gone to the heart it would have
been impossible to have done anything
for her relief. Miss Lizzie suffered a
similar stroke, though not so severe,
some thirteen months since, from
which she slowly recovered, and has
for some time been, for her, considering
the stroke, very well. Before the
stroke which occurred some time since,
she had been afflicted with a headache
and during the past two weeks symp
tons of the same headache had troubled
her. Sunday she was out in town and
attended the services at the Masonic
Home, and this morning felt no differ
ent from what was her custom, and
was as cheerful as general.
No arrangements have as yet been
made for the funeral, which will not be
arranged until the other relatives
arrive, who are in Omaha. She leaves
an aged father. George Kroehler, who
is employed in the Burlington shops;
four brother George and John, who are
in Omaha, and Andrew and Louis, who
are engaged in the hardware business
here. Two sisters, Mrs. D. B. Eber
sole, living here, and Mrs. Harry New
man of Omaha.
Notice of the arrangements of the
funeral will be given wheli perfected,
and also a furthei- account of her life.

Different Routes Wiil Be chosen for
Making the Return Trip.
Oakland, Cal., May 7, 1008.
Our party has arrived safe and well,
happy and full of patriotism at San
Francisco, where the fleet is now an
chored. And, as our party disbands
here, some will return over one route
and some over another; some remain
for several weeks and others start for
home soon. I wish to say that I was
never out with a happier, jollier or bet-ter-natured
and enthusiastic crowd and
never expect to travel with a party of
tourists quite the equal of the Gover
nor's party not a single complaint (to
my knowledge) and everybody riding on
the top wave of happiness and content

William Babcock, (a long time personal
friend of mine) was with us from start
to San Francisco, and the entire party
voted him the prince of conductors and
I assure you he merits any and all the
good things said of him.
Our ride from Los Angeles was along
the shore line for many miles only a
few rods from the ocean, where we
could sit in our car for miles and miles
and see the tide coming in, an endless
chain of mountains of water falling
over itself and striking the land with a
force that to us would seem sufficient to
knock the United States out of plum.
If this force could only be harnessed, it
seems to me it would be sufficient to
run all the machinery from here to the
Mississippi river. After leaving the
ocean we traveled for several hours
through the mountains, and for a scenic
r jute this has surpassed any over which
we have, as yet, traveled. We passed
over some, under some and on the side
of others, where on one side one would
have to look twice to see the'top and
on the other, three times to see the
Now to the fleet. Yesterday the en
tire fleet entered Golden Gate and an
chored in the bay. You will get a full
description of this from the papers, so
I will not attempt to describe it. To
day was a grand street parade, which
you will also get from papers. Today
Geo. Oldham and myself went out with
a small party and dodged here and
there and everywhere among the entire
fleet. We viewed the entire fleet at
short range and landed for a short time
on the Maine. These floating (or I
would say swimming) forts are certainly
a wonder to a son of the prairie.
