The supreme court holds in the
case of Sadie Idelia Griffin vs. Ren
nctt Chrlswelser of Cass rounty that
the settlement of bastardy proceed
Ings Is a sufficient consideration for
a promissory. note, and it Is no de
fense to such note that the mothe
and guardian of the complainant
made an unlawful agreement not to
nrosecute the putative father for
statutory rape unless such complain
ant knowingly participated In such
unlawful agreement. The girl com
plainant was but fifteen years old
The elder Chrlswelser for his son Roy
gave the girl's mother $400 and
nromlssorv note for $1,100. He re
fused to pay the note and the mothe
sued to recover. The suit was dls
missed. The cause Is reversed and
remanded by the supreme court.
The above case was tried in this
district court before Judge Paul Jes
sen, the attorneys in the case being
Matthew Gering for the plaintiff and
Byron Clark and W. C. Ramsey for
the defendant Chrlswelser. Under
the ruling of the supreme court, the
case will be returned to this court
for trial and will doubtless ' be for
trial at the May term.

tainly should be commended for Its

Red men's Dance.
The Improved Order of Redmen
will hold another of their entertaln-
ng dances on Friday evening April
23 at Coates Hall. As these dances
have been given from time to time
and have been so successful, it Is
hardly necessary to recommend
them to the public. Everyone at
tends them and there has never been
one to find fault with them In any
way. Itner'8 Redmen orchestra of
Omaha will furnish the music as it al
ways does and this Is enough to in
sure fine dancing. The admission Is
fixed at 50c with ladles free. Spec
tators are charged 25c. Remember
the date is April 23rd.
Itliz.ard Thirty-Six Years Ago.
Thirty-six years ago today there
raged one of the most disastrous bliz
zards that ever swept over these then
wide prairies. The great storm that
the early pioneer delights to talk
about began In the middle of the af
ternoon of a bright, summer like Sun
day afternoon, April 13, 1873, and
raged for three days In greatest fury
reaching a climax on the 15th. Men
who were compelled to go only a few
yards from the house for fuel or
water were forced to tie a rope about
their bodies in order to find their
way, hack, so fierce was the wind
and snow that it was impossible to
see a few feet. Kearney Democrat.
After a brief existence of but four
days, death last Monday claimed an
Infant girl of Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Batmann, living on the farm of John
Gorder near the city. The little one
came Into the world on Thursday,
April 8, but had hardly more than
entered Into this land when It was
called back to Its Maker. The fu
neral occurred on Tuesday, April
23rd, the little one being laid to rest
In Oak Hill. Rv. A. A. Randall pro
nounced the services over It. In
their sorrow and distress at the loss
of this little angel, the parents have
the profound sympathy of all.

and which was the leading attrac
tion of Chicago for more' than a'
year. The ; company presenting the
opera at' Omaha Is a very capable
one; almost' as good as that which
New York Is so crazy over. The
leading woman's part is taken by
Miss Ethel Dovey who Is starred In
the play and it is quite unneces
sary to add any words of praise for
Miss Dovey. She is so well known
to our people that all that Is needed
is to announce her appearance.
' Miss Dovey has been winning gold
en opinions in her characterization
of the part she has taken and it will
well repay anyone to see this charm
ing young woman. Her sister, Miss
Alice Dovey as is well known, Is
doing famous In the same play in
