I'VE heord the news!" cried
Cherry later that afternoon
shrieking to make herself
heard above the rattle anJ
Jar of the machinery.
"There seems to be a Providence
that watches over .fishermen." said
"I am happy, for your sake, and 1

"It's too much for one man." she
"Oh. I'll sleep tomorrow."
"Did you see bcr?" questioned
"She must bo very proud' of you."
she said wistfully.
"1 I ien't think she understands
what I am trying to do or what It
means. Our talk was net very satis
factory." "She surely must have understood
what Marsh Is doing."
"I didn't tell her that."
"What good would It have done?"
"Why" Cherry seemed bewildered
"she could put a stop to It; she could
use her Influence with her father
against Marsh. I expected to see your
old crew back at work again. Oh. I
wish I had her power!"
"She wouldn't take a hand under
any circumstances It wouldn't occur
to her and naturally I couldn't ask
her." Boyd flushed uncomfortably
"Thanks to George's trap, there Is no
need." He went on to tell Cherry of
the scene with Mr. Wayland and its
"They have used all their resources
to down you," she said, "but luck Is
with you. and you mustn't let them
succeed. Now Is the time to show
them what Is In you. Co in and win
her now against all of them."
He was grateful for her sympathy,
yet somehow It made him uncomfort
able. "What was it you wished to see me
about?" he asked.
"Oh! Have you seen Chakawana?"
"She disappeared early this morning
soon after the yacht came in. I can't
find her anywhere. She took the baby
with her, and I'm worried."
"Doesn't Constantino know where
"Why, Constantino Is down here.
"He hasn't been here since yestor
Cherry rose nervously. "There Is
something wrong, Doyd. They have
been acting quecrly for a long time."
Just then Constantino came saunter
lng round the corner of the building.
"Thank heaven!" cried Cherry. "He
will know where the others are."
But when his mistress questioned
him Cotistantlne merely replied: "1
don' know. I i)nsee Chakawana."
"There Is something queer about
this." said Emerson. "Where have
you been nil day?"
"I go shop. I tired from fljrhtlng

As the passed Marsh's cannery Cher

and noticed strangers among the build

If the sight of a white girl attended
by a copper hued giant were part of
the plcturesqueness they expected. As
she drew near her own house she saw
a woman approaching, and while yei
a stone's throw distant she recogul.u!
her. A Jealous tightening of her throat
and a flutter at her breast told her that
this was Mildred Wayland.
Cherry would have passed on silent
ly, but Miss Wayland checked her.
"Pardou mo." she said. 'Will you
tell me what that odd looking build
ing Is used for?" She pointed to the
"That Is t.he Greek church."
"How Interesting! Are there ninny
"No. It Is a relic of the P.u.sl:ii)

"Do you live here?"
"Yes. Iu the log house yonder."
"Indeed! I tried to find some one
there, but you were out, of course.
Yeu have It arranged very cnzlly. I
see." Mildred's manner was faintly
patronizing. She was vexed at Hip
beauty and evident refinement of this
woman whom she hud thought to find
"if you will go back I will show It
to you from tho Inside, Miss Way

the name and the look of cold hostility

"Cherry Malotte. of course."
"I remember. Mr. Marsh spoke of

"I beg your pardon?"
"I say I am sorry Mr. Marsh ever
spoke of me."
Mildred smiled frigidly. "Evidently
you do not like him." ,
"Nobody In Alaska likes him. Do
"You see, I am not an Alaskan."
"Do you know that Mr. Marsh is to
blame for all of Boyd's misfortunes?"
"Yes. Boyd's, of course. Oh, let us
not pretend. I call him by his first
nime. I think you ought to know the
truth about this business, even If Boyd
Is too chivalrous to tell you."
"If Mr. Emerson blames any one but
himself for his failure I am sure he
would have told me."
"Then you don't know him."
"I never knew him to ask another to

1 merely thought that If you knew the
truth you might help him."
"It Is for you to flud a way. He has

evety step. I think It Is time some one
came to his aid."
"He has had your assistance at a!!
times, has he not?"
"I have tried to help wherever I
could, but I haven't your power."
Mildred shrugged her shoulders.
"You even went to Seattle to help him.
did you not?"
"I went there on my own business."
"Why do you take such an Interest
In Mr. Emerson's affairs, may 1 nsk?"
"It was 1 who Induced him to take
up this venture," said Cherry proudly.
"I fcund him discouraged, ready to
give up. I helped to put new heart
Into him. I have something at stake
In the enterprise, too but that's
nothing. 1 bate to see a good man
driven to the wall by a scoundrel like
"Walt! There is something to be

Riaguanimous enough to overlook that

"I shall ask him about It again this
evening." she continued. "If there
has really been persecution, as you
suggest, I shall tell my father."
"You won't see Boyd this evening,"
"Oh. yes. I shall."
"He Is very busy, and I don't think
he can see you."
-"You don't understand. I told him
to come out to the yacht!" Mildred's
temper rose at the light she saw In the
other woman's face.
"But If he should disappoint yon?"
Cherry Insisted. "Remember that the
fish are running, and you have no time
to lose If you ure going to help."
Mildred tossed her head. "To he

TRIAL OF EMIT
Young Man Charged With Car
Robbery on Trial.
From Tuesday's Daily
A jury was secured yesterday af
ternoon and the trial of Grant Blunt,
charged with burglary of a Missouri
Pacific freight car last May, waa
commenced. About all of the testi
mony for the state was plaeed before
the Jury before the court took a
recess until 9 o'clock this morning.
The evidence of Sheriff Quiuton,
Deputy Sheriff Manspeaker, Oliver
Osburu and a young man named
Carnes was given and from the sub
stance of this, it seemed that the de
fendant had stated to Carnes a few
days before the goods were stolen
that there was an easier way of mak
ing a living than by work, and that
he later told Carnes that he had
made a raise, and took Carnes to the
home of defendant's brother, where
he showed him dry goods which
were offered in evidence, aud at the
time Carnes looked at them there
were some of them in a trunk and
some of them covered over with bed
clothes In the house occupied by
Jesse Blunt in this city. Prior to
this, however, he went with the de
fendant to the place where the goods
were secreted near the Kunsman &
Ramage slaughter house, and defend
ant showed witness where he threw
the box by the side of the track.
Blunt later informed the officers that
he had found the goods covered up
with leaves near the Missouri Pacific
tracks, and that he had brought a
part of them to town and told the
sheriff where he could find the rest,
the officer went out and got the
goods, and afterwards arrested
Blunt and placed him In Jail. The
evidence disclosed that Blunt broke
jail two times and was brought back
each time after some search.
The jury was composed of Elmer
Ilutchlns, H. P. Dehnlng. Chris. lake,
John Albert, Joe Allen, C. A. Harvey,
Henry Goos Oregon Douge, John
Bramblet, F. 11. Goodfellow, John
Fowler and Oscar Miller.
BURLINGTON CLAIMS 10
In answers which have Just been
tiled In district court In the injunc
tion case of John Tiger and Patrick
H. Sudduth vs. the Chicago, Burling
ton & Qulncy Railway company, the
'atter asserts that by act of the fed
eral government It was In 1864 grant
ed a right-of-way 200 feet wide along
Its main line from Plattsmouth to
Kearney and that landowners along
such right-of-way have occupied fifty
feet on each side of the traik since
that tin.e merely by suffrance, says
Ihe Lincoln News.
Recently the railroad company be
gan fencing in the extra fifty feet
along each side of the right-of-way
between this city and Waverly, it
having heretofore claimed but 100
feet. Fudduth and Tiger brought in
juncllon proceedings, alleging that
the road owned but 100 feet or fifty
feet on each aide of the center of
the track and that It had never
In Us answers In this case the com-
I. ai.y tilleges that It has owned the
20o foot strip ever sltue Its grant
from the government and that It was
through ci ror that it accepted a deed
lor 100 feet from the settlers In the
early '70s. By accepting such deeds
the railroad company nsserts It was
not estop). cd from claiming the 200
feet which It In reality owned at that
By the act of congress of July 2,
18C4, authorizing it to extend Its
main Una from Plattsmouth to Kear
ney, the company alleges It waa given
a right-of-way 200 feci wide through
th public doma'n, none of the U'. 1
new In controversy having at that
time been settled or Med upon. The
company filed with the secretary of
the Interior Its v.iiticn acceptance f
the grant and within me year of that
time the lino was t'tflnltely locatad
and a map filed v. lth. the secretary of
the Interior. The title was then fully
vested in the predecessors of the de
fendant In these actions. Later, by a
joint resolution of congress tho gran
tees of tho 200 foot right-of-way were
given permission to convey tho same.
The company asserts that Its ex
terior fences have never been con
structed along the exterior bounds of
Its holdings, but that It has allowed
the adjoining landowners to farm tho
extra fifty feet on each side. The
court Is asked to quiet the title to tho
land In the railroad company.
Upon tho outcome of these cases
probably depends the ultimate own
ership of a strip of valuable laud fifty
feet wide on each side of the Burling
ton main line all the way from Platts
mouth to Kearney and the litigation
will be watched with interest by peo
ple In many counties.

Became a Raving Maniac and
Attempted to Hang Himself
The meeting of the board of Insan
ity, which expected to meet at 4'
o'clock yesterday afternoon, did not
meet until 7 last night. The unfor
tunate man had become a raving
maniac before the hour of mooting
of the board and had to be strapped
down to his bed to prevent him from
Bukldlng. Sheriff Qulnton arrived
on the scene Just in time to save his
life, as the unfortunate man had
made a noose of his handkerchief and
had suspended himself from the Iron
rage, and life was almost choked out
of him when the sheriff cut him
down. Ferguson, when sufficiently
revived, then became violent, making;
It necessary to strap him. Dr. Mar
tin was summoned and gave him a
hyperdemlc Injection In the arm,
which quieted htm after some time,
during which he suffered a great
deal. At the hearing before the board
Mrs. I. B. Green and Mrs. Iletherlng
ton testified that the man had board
ed with them, and had been Mrs.
Green's boarder for five weeks, dur
ing which time he acted queerly, and
was off on the subject of money.
Ferguson had been In this country
about a year, and In riattsmouth
since last April, and the only rela
tive he had In this country Is a broth
er at Douglas, Nebraska. The man
has been a Unitarian In religion. The
honrd found that Ferguson wns a fit
person to be restrained at the hospi
tal for the insane at Lincoln. This
morning the unfortunate man had
become quieted, and was able to walk
to tho train with a guard, his hands
were strapped at his side, lie rec

'Takes the Cake" for Cheek.
The H. B. Rldgeley Merchandise
company, of Omaha, sends down to
the Journal a big advertisement that
would occupy at least four columns
and set mostly In nonparlel type, and
asks us to print the same In this
week's Issue, send them a copy of the.
paper and they will remit $3.00.
Now, In the first place, It will cost a
great deal more than this sum to set
the ad, allowing nothing for the space.
It occupies. In the second place, w
have plenty of home advertising for
which we get very fair rates, and
don't care for such advertising eren
at the same rate we get from hom
people. But we think the proposi
tion Is simply a cheeky one, emanat
ing from a firm that believes, evl-
dently, In getting something for
nothing. The proposition found a
place in the waste basket.
Car Breakers at .Nebraska City.
A box car on the Missouri PaclQa
railway, was broken open at th
station here last night and many ot
the boxes therein broken open.
Nothing was taken. The car waa
loaded with castors from the Fault

the work of amateurs. This has be
come quite frequent of late.
Friday night a freight car In th
Burlington yards at this point waii
broken open and robbed. Some
household goods, which 'were boxed
up, were broken into and some arti
cles of wearing apparel were, taken.
