mouth VOL. XXXII. PLATTSMOUTH, NEBRASKA, MONDAY, JULY 28, 1913. NO. 59. 5 llSXlLS E I SE Cuilding Was Insured for $4,000, and Temporary Quarters Will Be Provided for Inmates. From Friday's Dally. The inmates of the county farm woi'i' brought to this i'ity yester day afternoon after the fire and quartered at the Perkins house temporarily; until other quarters can be provided for them. Jt is thought probable that an effort will be. made by the commission ers to have a temporary building placed at the farm, where most of the inmates can be cared for un til winter, at least, as there is a great deal of work to look after on the farm, which the men stay ing there can attend to. There are a number of small buildings at the farm that can be converted into temporary quarters for the summer and in the winter the residents of the farm will likely be quartered in this city, as it will hardly be possible to pet, the new building up by that lime. The building that was destroyed by fire yesterday was insured in the sum of $i,0()0, which will partly cover the loss to the county. The old structure at the farm was completed in 1873, the con tract for the building- being let on September 21, 1872, to Alfred Johnson & Sons for the carpenter, tin work and painting, in the sum of $2,633, and the contract for the excavating, grading and mason work was let to I. J. Han son in the sum of $3,925. The rock that was used in the con struction of the county building was quarried near the old Eight Mile creek by Martin Props!,, on his farm. R. L. Props!, who re sides at, Mynard, hauled most of !he rock used in I he consl ruct ion of the building for his uncle, Mr. Martin Propsl, during Hie con struction of the building. In the year 187 this locality was visited by a very heavy wind storm and in it the roof of thej building on the farm was blown off and it required I he expenditure of several hundred dollars to n place it. I Hiring uie last lew years the commissioners have greatly improved and modernized the building, including the in stalling of a heating plant, and this will be saved, as the furnace was located in a small brick building adjoining the main structure and was not injured by the fire. As soon as the county commissioners can decide what is best to be done the work of re construction will be taken up. ANOTHER PUTTSMOUTH BOY IS FORGING TO THE FRONT IN BUSINESS From Friday's Dally. The list of young men, natives of this city, who are forging ahead in all lines of work, is large, and among those who have made great advancement is Charles Peterson of Chicago, a son of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Peter son of this city. Mr. Peterson started in this city as an ap prentice in the machine shop in this city, and later went to Have lock to enter the Hurlinglon shops there, and was a very ex pert man at his trade when he decided to enter the automobile business, and in -company, with Mr. Graham of Havelock departed for Chicago, where they started a garage 'and at once began a very successful business, which has increased greatly, ami they have just purchased a second garage in that city. Mr. Peterson is a very bright young man and an excellent workman and his friends here in his old home will be great ly pleased to learn of his ad vancement in his chosen line of work.

The condition of Miss Jesse Fox, who has been quite sick for the past few weeks, is about the same and the young lady does nut seem to rally from her illness as rapidly as her friends and rela tives could wish fur, and seems unable to retain l'ooil on her stomach, which has caused her to become quite weak. Thai she may be abb- to rally from the al tack is the wish of the entire community, as Miss Fox has been an immense favorite with all who know her. VERY BUSY III IRE From Friday's Dally, The car shortage which is fa cing the Hurlinglon, as a result of the heavy demands made upon thai, road for cars to haul the enormous grain crops of the great west, is causing every ell'ort to lie made all along Hie line to get out all the box cars possible, and the shops in this city have in the last week been piling them out in line shape. The freight car repair de partment has been running at full ten hours' time, and the men em ployed in that department, under Foreman Parker, have succeeded in getting the cars out at about the rate of twenty-four a day, al though they have been short, of their usual number of men. The work of repairing these cars has been so rushed that several of the carpenters from the coach shop have been placed at work on re pairing the box cars, in addition to carrying on the regular coach work. THE WHEAT YIELD III SOME SECTIONS OF CASS COUNTY From Friday's Dally. In speaking of the yield of wheat, in Cass county Ibis year, the wheat on the farm of Peter Halmes, near Greenwood, in this county, has run about 3.") bushels to the acre, which is a very good yield. Mr. Halmes returned yes terday afternoon from (ireen wood, where he had been for the past few days looking after the harvest and was greatly pleased with the showing made by the wheat. He states that the growth of the wheat was quite rank and that the straw from the wheat will be very heavy. Mr. Halmes has not threshed his wheat on his farm near this city yet and can not estimate the yield, although it is thought it will probably go belter than 35 bushels. He also reports that corn needs rain bad ly in the vicinity of Greenwood, and although our corn here is in much better shape than that in the western part of the county, it has suffered greatly in the last few weeks from I he lack of moisture.

The floors in the liv ing room and dining room are of oak and polished very beautifully. A large hall has been made the entire length of the south side of the house, connecting the rooms on the east side with the dining room, and this, too, is provided with hardwood floors of the latest nil terns.

From Saturday Pntl. lesieruay allernoon u:,out 2:'M) Karl Framplon, the negro, who was convicted a few week ago of attempting to provoke a fight at, Nchawka and for being drunk, attempted to end his earthly career by hanging himself in the county jail, and had il not been for the fact that there were two other prisoners conllned in the jail he would have succeeded. It seems Framplon has been decidedly "bug house" for the past few dajs and night and im agined that lynchers were in pursuit of him and he procure a large piece of brick last night ami announced his intention of driving off the parlies he im agined were about to trv ami hang him. His actions greallv alarmed his companions in the J a 1 1 and they succeeded in get- ling him somewhat tamed down, all hough at times he would break out with cries of alarm that his enemies were in the cell ami about to hang him. Yeslerdav he managed lo procure a piece of wire clothes line, and while his companions were sleeping in the north part of the jail he climbed on top of the steel cell, and fast ening one end to the side of the cell, placed the other around his neck and jumped oIT, with the in tention of hanging himself. The noise aroused Ihe other prison ers, who came out and found him lying in the corridor of (he jail bleeding profusely from a nil on the chin, as well as one on his neck. Deputy Sheriff Mauspeakcr was at once notified and he summon ed Dr. K. D. Cummins, who ar rived at Ihe jail and found the prisoner in a very delcrious con dition and muttering about his enemies who were in nursiiil of lim. Framplon slated he though! he had belter hang himself before e was captured and hung by his nemies, and oilier slatenienls qually as wild and insane. Framplon is a brother of Hall Framplon, who was sent lo the penitent iary from Otoe county for the murder of his stepdaughter in Nebraska City some years ago, and he died in that institution about a year ago. He also has a sister residing at Nchawka, where he worked for some lime previous to his gelling into Ihe trouble, and she will be noljlied of Ihe unfortunate man's condition. It is probable an effort will be made to send him to the insane hospital. This morning the board of in sanity had the case of Framplon up before them for consideration and the sister and brother-in-law of the unfortunate man came up from Nchawka lo testify in the case. According to Ihe testimony of these parlies, Framplon re ceived an injury to his head about lwo years ago and as a result of the injury be was unbalanced mentally for some time, but of late they had not noticed any strange actions on his part, al though he was given to drinking a great deal whenever he had an opportunity, and when bothered by anyone was quite irritable. The witnesses, testified that Framplon came home when in toxicated, but stayed away some times for several days. The board, after hearing the evidence in the case, decided to send (hi man to the slate insane asylum. Didn't Arrive In Time. Mrs. Henry Sleinhauer and daughter, Miss Gladys, returned last evening from Lincoln, where they went Thursday morning lo see A. A. How man, but while en route the news of his death was received, together with the fact that he would be taken back to his old home that morning, and as a result they arrived too lale to meet the funeral party. The funeral of Mr. Bowman was held this afternoon in Quincy, Illinois. Journal for fancy Stationery. 'Father" VVynn Still Sick. Frimi Fiiiluy's Pally.
