The death of Miss Nancy Ann

days old and had lived in this

where the family is well known
and counted among the .pioneer
families of the community. The

MISS EMMA MYERS
MARRIED IN OMAHA
From Saturday's Daily.
The many friends of Miss
Emma Myers of this city were
greatly startled yesterday to dis
cover in the Omaha papers the
notice that a marriage license had
been issued in that city to Mr.
John Regan and Miss Emma
Myers, both giving their resi
dences as Omaha. It at once
struck the many friends of this
charming lady here that it was
quite a coincident in Ihe sale of
the millinery store here and the
marriage and inquiry was at once
started to discover the truth of
the matter. Miss Myers refused
to either confirm or deny the re
port, but to Ihe Journal man she
slated that, such cases had hap
pened before. The best wishes of
the entire community will be ex
tended to the happy couple for a
long and happy married life.
FINGERS MANGLED IN
COGS OF A CORN SHELLER
John Weichel was over from
his home near Alvo yesterday
morning visiting relatives and
meeting his many friends. He
wouldn't shake with anybody, but
it wasn't contrariness that with
held his right paw, for we learn
ed during a short conversation
with him that he had three of his
lingers severely mangled in the
cogs of a corn elevator which he
was using Tuesday afternoon, and
the services of a surgeon were
demanded to repair and dress the
wounds. He carried his hand
carefully wxapped, and in a
sling, and appeared exceptionally
cheerful, considering the pain he
must have been suffering. The
Leader-Echo joins in the hope
that Mr.' Weichel's injuries will
soon mend and complete recovery
rapjdly ensue. Elmwood Leader

where the witches were presiding
over their kettles in a very weird
manner, which served lo impress
the guests with the general
ghostly spirit of the occasion.
The jolly crowd spent several
