.Marshal Murphy captured four pro

Sunday last. They borrowed a gov

taken seemed to be well fixed for a
long voyage. Cn searching them a
full set of burglar tools were found
and each one of them had a long knife,
the only arms in their possession.

city's re-quest, $3,000 of warrants

he can make the city return his war

IU. Ivfv. kobert Claiksorr, bi.-hop of
Nebraska, made St. Luke's chu'ch a
special visitation on Sunday last, and
:n the evening delivered an address on
the subject of his recent attendance
;;t the Pan-Angelican council, or
rrore properly, the Lambeth confer
ence, from the name of the p-ace at
v. Inch it was held, the rl ode of the
areh-bihop of Canterbury. This
conference, as the bishop stated, was
composed of delegations of bishops
from all the English speaking
branches of the church throughout the
world, and the number of bi.-hops
present was over 300, including some
of the most notable men of the church.
The sessions cf the conference were!
held in a room adorned with portraits
of the English
church for hundreds of years back; J by myself and family. We were left
thus uniting as it were in conference with only the clothe ; v. e were wear
together over the methods cf promot- ling, and the dclr.y thtt you could have
ing the welfare of the church, not only
the living bishops who have charge of
its guidance now, but by the reminis
cences which their portraits evoked of
their wisdom in guu'mg the church
through many a struggle into deep and
peaceful waters, the dead also. The i
bi-hop'i account was exceedingly in
teresting, as the large congregation
will testify, the only regret being that
we could not listen to much more on

About 8 a. m. Tuesday morning
Mickelwait's ferry took aboard three
emigrant teams and proceeded to cross
the river. At the point where the fer
ry is made the current at all times is
swift, and now with the swollen river
is powerful; when about half way over
in the middle cf the curent, the boat
commenced sinking, and seeing the
danger the boat was cut loose, but not
until it had nearly sunk; as it was the
boat filled with water, it rising to the
wagon boxes on the boat; in this man
ner the ferry floated away down
stream. The man from the transfer
boats saw it all, and immediately the
yawl and life boat were manned and
started down stream to the rescue.
When the boat commenced sinking one
of the women was so excited that she
threw her young '-mid overboard; a
man jumped in at'.cr the youngster,

LOUISVILLE AND EAGLE
WILL BOTH BE "DRf
THE COMING YEAR
From Wotlnoswla j-'s Daily.
Among the results of the elections
held yesterday in Cass county, our
neighboring city of Louisviile wi.'I
probably be found in the dry column.
ps in the election one wet and one dry
member of the town board were se
lected, and with two dry and one wet
holdover members on the town board
it has a decided dry appearance. This
will be quite an addition to the tax.?
cf the people if the proposed move u
made, as they have recently put in a
new system of waterworks- there at
quite an expenditure and the licence
of $1,500 from each of the threj
saloons was expected to aid in paying
off the indebtedness.
In Eagle the result was quite sur
prising, as there had been no indica
tion that this place was intending to
get oh the water wagon, but when the
votes were counted it was found that
the drys had pulled through with a
majority, and as a result the two
saloons there will probably be forced
out of business.

From Tuesday's naily.
Major Hail yesterday unloaded a car
oi fire hay, which had been shipped in
fiom his wife's ranch at Minatare,
Scotts Bluff county. The quality of
the hay speaks we'd for that section
of the state as a hay-producing coun
try. Mrs. Hail is very proud of her
ranch, it being a gift from her father
; bout a year ago. It is excellent hay
in every way and demonstrates that
this section of the state is gaining
rapidly in public favor as hay land.

Changes in Our Body.
The human body is subject to con
stant changes. It consists of very
small cells, which are growing,
multiplying and dying. Food keeps
them strong. As long as the body
iv n accept and digest as much
: utritious food as it needs, it is
healthy and strong. Every violation
of temperance in eating or drinking
will be followed by a fine; more cells
will die than be born. The body will
suffer. As scon as you will notice
some disorder in your usual appetite
or in your strength, use at once Trin

day looking after some matters pre
paratory to their moving to Platts

purchased the property in this city
now occupied by Major Hall, and will

ENTERTAINED AT THE
J. E. PANELS HOE
Yesterday afternoon the ladies be
longing to the Kensington club were
entertained in a most charming man
ner at the beautiful home of Mrs. J.
E. McDaniel, on North Third street.
The ladies came prepared for a most
delightful time and certainly enjoyed
io the utmost the gracious hospitality
afforded them at this time. The aft
ernoon was spent in the making of
dainty articles of needlework, as well
as social conversation, and these forms
tt entertainment served to pass the
time most pleasantly. At a suitable
hour the hostess, assisted by her
daughter, Miss Ellen Belle, served a
very tempting three-course luncheon,
which was a most pleasing feature of
the occasion and one thoroughly cn
jryed by the ladies present. Mrs.
Charles Peterson, jr., was present as
a guest of the club.
CHRISTIAN CHURCH SOON
TO HAVE A NEW PASTOR
Iist evening the members of the
Chiistian chuich congregation had the
pleasure of having with them Rev. C.
E. Horvey of Moorehead, Iowa, who
arrived in the city yesterday, and in
the evening gave one of the most
pleasing sermons that has been given
in the church for some time. Rev.
liervey made a most favorable im
pression upon the church members and
f teps will be taken to have a call ex
tended to him to occupy the pulpit at
the church here in the future, although
the members of his present charge are
ery desirous of keeping him with
them. He is a very close student of
the bible and his address last evening
wus one that showed the' deep thought
that he had devoted to the study of
the divine book. It is to be hoped that
Rev. Hervcy may be secured as the
minister of the Christian church here
as he will bring to the position
bright, pleasing personality and will
without doubt be found a strong ad-
dition to the force of the clergymen
cf the city.
