towns are: Emerson, Hastings,

The above is in relation to the
plans of the Nebraska Lighting
company to connect the plant in
this city with the Iowa plants and
to furnish first-class service to
all the cilies along the line of the
Burlington. The lighl inp com
pany has contemplated the re
building of J he plant in this city
with a view o supplying service
to the different towns along the

From Tuesday's Dally
At the Union meeting held Sun
day evening at the park, whqre
the societies of the Methodist
Presbyternian and Christian
churches met jointly, much in
terest was manifested. The music
was h-d by Don C. York and con
sisted of those old-time melodies
which does one good to hear, aiu
as sang by th' enthusiastic young
people sounded very beautiful on
the pure evening air.
The meeting was under Ihe
direction of Mr. Philip Rhin, who
congratulated those present on
the auspicious occasion, as wel
as thanking tnem lor tneir pres.
ence and assistance.
Herbert Cotton was the first on
the program, reading the lesson,
to which all listened with much
interot, and was followed by Rev
W. I.. Austin, with a very impres.
sive prayer, wtncn .maue a ueep
impression upon his hearers. Rev
D. I.. Dunkleberger spoke on
"There (iocs the Ship." drawing
a picture in which he made each
individual a ship upon the sea of
life, all on business bent, but
hound for the shore of eternity,
where we are to land at one of
two ports. He asked which?
E. H. Wescott spoke on the
"Outdoor Altars," giving a bibical
history of those erecting altars
and the growth of Ihe services
which originated with them.
L. Karley followed with lessons
from animals mentioned in the
bible, of which he cited many,
making -comparisons which show
ed many of the characteristics of
man in the animals. Miss Crete
Briggs spoke lo the teaching of
flowers and plans, drawing hope
and inspiration from their bright
ness and beauty, showing where,
with their fragrance, they had
given hope o many discouraged.
Miss Mai lie Larson followed by a
reading of "Robin Redbreast,"
which was given in an excellent
manner, but was unable to cope
with an engine in ttie shop yards,
which kept blowing off steam dur
ing the entire time she was read
ing. The meeting was closed by
a benediction by R. W. Bryan,
and the gathering voted to have
another meeting of this kind in
Ihe near future.
A few days ago Byron Reed,
who resides a few miles south of
this city, sustained a severe loss
when one of his most valuable
cows died of blood poisoning as
(he "result of being shot by ome
parly or "parties, while she v was
grazing in the pasture on the
Reed place. The shooting occur
red Thursday and Sunday the cow
died, as the shot had penetrated
into her so far as to cause the
blood to become poisoned, and
despite. all that could be done she
lied. This loss is quite heavy for
Mr. Reed and is an outrage that
should be punished, as too much
reckless shooting is indulged in
on the different farms without
regard for the fact that a person
or stock is liable to he hit by the
flving bullets, and in many cases
little regard is given the right siif
the people owning the land on
which the shooting is done.- The
parties committing the outrage
at the Reed place, if found out,
should be punished to the fullest
extent of the law and made to re
spect the property rights of
others if they have not got
enough common sense to
recognize the difference, between
right and wrong.

From Tuesday's Daily.
This morning Herbert Sher
wood, who is employed at the

a very painful experience whib

which he had been standing it

down he missed his fooling and
slipped, .throwing out his right

Over Matter, but No Arrest

Quite a great deal of excitement
occurred in our neighboring city
of Weeping Water Tuesday night,
according lo a report from that
city. A man by the name of John
Morgan became involved in a con
troversy with his wile over Ihe
princely sum of 5 cents, and as
a result of the argument they
came to blows. The wife of Mor-
an, it seems, desired lo have the
tamily laundry brought home, and
as Ihe bov that usually does this
service was not around she se
cured a delivery man to bring' it
lo the house, and paid him T
cents for doing so, which greatly
incensed the husband, who up-
iraided her for her ext ravangance
in expending this amount of
money and struck her, when the
neighbors, hearing the noise of
the conflict, rushed in and stop
ped the fracas before any serious
lamage could be done.
The woman was taken lo the
home of one of the neiahhors and
Ihe man warned to keep the peace
in Ihe future. The citizens of
thai community were quite m-
ensed over the affair, and were
ery urgent to have proceedings
taken against the man for the
outrage, as it is understood m
Weeping Water thai the man has
een in the habit of raising sev
eral assorted brands of trouble
around his home, although this is
the first time the matter has been
wrought to the attention of Ihe
public. It is not likely, however,
that the officials will lake any ac
tion in life mailer as long as the
man will keep the peace and cut
out the disturbances.

Was Loved by All
From Wednesday's Dally.
This morning at 7:h.1 o'clock,
after suffering for tin past three
months from anemia, Mi-s Jessie
Fox, the .youngest daughter of
County Treasurer and Mrs. W. K.
Fox. passed away to tier final re
ward. Through all the long
months since she was taken sick
Jessie had borne without a mur
mur her sufferings, and as the
near approach of the messenger
of death open.-d her eyes to take
the last farewell of the deol.d
father and mother, who during all
these weeks have walched an. I
labored hoping lo win I heir loved
one back from the fatal sickness.
but the nature of the sicklies
made if very hard for them to
draw much hope of the recovery
of their beloved child.
Miss Jessie was taken sick in
Ihe Jailer part of May while visit
ing friends at Elmwood and re
turned to her home, where she
was forced to take lo ner ne.i ami
since that lime her condition has
gradually grown worse until the
summons of Ihe Masler brought
her the relief from her sufferings.
Since she was taken sick .Miss
Jessie has been unable o take
nourishment and this resulted in
the gradual breakdown of her
system and made her recovery a
matter of grave doubt.
- Jessie Ipne Fox was borii in
Ihe city of Platlsmoulh on De
cember 22, 181)0, and celebrated
her twenty-second birthday last
December. She was reared to
womanhood in Ibis cily, and dur
ing the years of her life here has
endeared herself to all who knew '
her by her sweet and lovable dis
position, and her dealh, coming
as it does, just al Ihe dawning- of
a bright young womanhood will
cause a leeiirig or ueep griei
throughout th cily where she
Was so well known and much be-
oved. While al lending the pub
ic school'in Ibis cily Miss Jessie
was attacked iy sickness inai
made it necessary for her lo
abandon her school work.' and
from Ihe effects of this illness she
never entirely recovered and il
made the last sickness much
harder for her to shake olT.
Miss Jessie spent, some three
years at Houston, Texas, where
her health seemed to be greatly
improved. She returned to this
city about live years ago, and
since time has lived here
with the exception of the time
spent in Lincoln, where she was
employed two years ago at the
session of Ihe legislature as an
engrossing clerk in the senate,
ami al the last session she oc
cupied n similar position in the
house of representatives ami
made many friends there by her
splendid ability along this line
of work. Besides the father and
mother, one brother, W. K. Fox.
of this cily and one sisler, Mrs.
Thomas li. Salmon', of fialesburg,
Illinois, are lef lo mourn the loss
of this well beloved young lady,
and to them the deepest sympathy
of Ihe entire community goes out
in this, their hour of grief, that
has taken from them the light of
their home.
The funeral of Miss Jessie Fox
win ne neui i riuay aflernoon at
2:30 at the home on firariite
