songs, like "Old drey Honnet,"

Colorado Vind9 It's Way," were
well represented. Hut "Waiting

had been held fifty years ago, and
while his health has been very
poorly lately, he was able to be
up and around.

J. II TiGNER BRINGS
' SUITFOR DIVORCE
Says That Wife Abandoned Him
After Living With Him
for Ten Years.
James M. Tigner has filed suit
for divorce against Louisa Tigner.
Tigner states in his petition that
he has been a resident of this
county for fifteen years. He and
the defendant were married on
November 29, 1899, at Platts
niouth. Her maiden name was
Louisa Jane Irey.
The plaintiff states in his peti
tion that he has been a faithful
husband and provided the defend
ant with a suitable home. On
August 18. 1909, the defendant
abandoned him without cause, and
has since refused to live with him.
lack Brown Leaves.
Zack Brown and his daughters,
Vera, Mabel and Abbie, left this
morning for Topeka. Kansas,
where they will live in the future.
The many firends of Mr. Brown
regretted to see him leave, but
wish him good health and happi
ness in his new home. He was,
until this year, a painter for the
Burlington since 1882, a period of
28 years. For several years he
was foreman of the traveling
painting crew for the western
division. He lost his health in
the work, as the lead, turpentine
and varnish poisoned his system.
He hopes that a rest of a year or
two will restore his health.
The, Coolest Morning.
Today's early morning was the
coolest of the summer, the ther
mometer showing only 58 at 8
o'clock. This was some time after
the sun bad come out and It Is
probable that it went as low as 55
or even lower in the early morn
ing hours. It wanned up rapidly
under the bright sun and at 2
o'clock the mercury showed 74
and was still rising. Seventy
four is anything but a high tem
perature, but it seemed hot to
those out in the sun.
The wedding of Miss Mae
Crook, the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. B. F. Crook, and Mr. Ralph
Stabler of Salem, took place last
evening at 7:30 o'clock at the
home of the bridge. The Rev. Mr.
Holyoke of Omaha performed the
ceremony. A number of out-of-
town friends and relatives were
present. Mr. ami Mrs. Stabler
left this morning for St. Joseph,
where they will visit before re
turning to Salem, which will be
their future home.
Card of Thanks.
We wish to extend our thanks
to the many friends who so kindly
assisted us in the recent sickness
and death of our little baby.
Mr. and Mrs. Sam Beaver.
Petitions for final settlement
were filed in the county court this
morning in the estates of Isabella
