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.

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

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

in that city. Mr. Peterson is a

excellent workman and his friends
here in his old home will be great

From Friday's Pally.
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

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

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

The Hemodoled Residence of
A. Rawls One of the Finest
in Town.
From Friday's Dally.
One of the most modern and
up-to-date residences put up in
the city of Plallsmoulh is that
of Attorney C. A. Rawls on Pearl
street, which has just been turn
ed over to him by Peters it Ilk-hards,
the contractors. ,
The house is two stories high
and made in the bungalo style,
and the most noticeable feature
to a person approaching it is the
large and comfortable porch
which has been made in the
northeast corner of the house
and is quite large and com
modious. The home of Mr. Rawls
has the Driest lighting system of
any residence in the city and
there is no a'closet or store
room in the house (hat is not
provided with electric lights,
which may be lighted from differ
ent parts of the house, making il
very convenient for the family.
The living i m is a work of
art and has been finished in a
beautiful manner with heavy
panelmgs of cherry, which gives
the room a rich anil artistic ap
pearance. One of the chief feat
ures of the living room is a large
fire-place, and supporting the
stone work of this is a large key
stone that was brought from the
home of Mrs. Rawl's grandfather,
near Hock Hluffs, and placed here,
and it is valued greatly as a fam
ily heirloom. The living room
and dining room are connected
with a large archway, at the base
of which, on the living room side,
ire two very handsome set-in
book cases, while on the dining
room side it is finished in the
dark panels.
Tin- stairs leading In the sec
ond floor are reached from the
living room and a most rich and
artistic, staircase of dark cherry
has been placed here, which adds
greatly to the appearance of the
room. The dining room is one of
the most attractive in the new
home and the chief feature of the
room is a large set -in buffet
which occupies almost the whole
south side of the room and is a
work of art, as well as a inns
handy and convenient piece of
furniture. 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. Leading off from the
hall and next to the large sleep
ing porch on the south side of
the house is a large bathroom,
which is one of the most modern
in the city and is provided with
every need of the toilet. This
room is finished in white tiling,
and when the lights are lit here
presents a handsome appearance
with its pure white finish.
All the rooms in the home are
provided with ample closets, as
well as dressers and window seals
built directlyin the wall, which
makes it easy to find any article
desired. The second floor has
been arranged with a view to
comfort of the family, and be
side a very charming little sew
ing room has a library and study,
which is Ihe private stamping
ground of Mr. Rawls, and several
large and artistically decorated
rest rooms and a handsome bath
room, which is a filling rival for
Ihe beautiful one on the first
floor. The second floor is pro
vided with many of large closets
and store-rooms, and the light
ing system, both here and on the
lower floor, is handsome and re
quired a great, deal of the time
of Messrs. Warga & Cecil to in
stall, and these gentlemen also
had the placing of the hath room
nxiures in Ihe house.
The house contains eight
rooms besides the bath rooms,
sfore-rnoms and closets, which
are large enough to be classed as
rooms. The house is heated with

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

pursuit of him and he procure
a large piece of brick last night
ami announced his intention of
driving off the parlies he im

alarmed his companions in the

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

Framplon is a brother of Hall
Framplon, who was sent lo the

the murder of his stepdaughter in
Nebraska City some years ago,

about a year ago. He also has

Ihe unfortunate man's condition.
It is probable an effort will be
made to send him to the insane
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.
