From Wednesday's Dally.
James Blaha has rented the
Thomas place which is near the big
Burlington bridge which has much
fruit thereon, and when his child
ren wanted some apples he went out
to see if the summer ones were ripe
and concluded that some of them
had better wait a little while longer
before being gathered. lie then
left them and going back the next
day found some one had stolen all
from 'the three trees. He has lost
about thirty dollars worth of apples,
besides many other things which he
has raised. He, like Mr. Ferguson,
is getting tired cf raising things for

YOUNG MAN KILLED BY MOWER
From Monday's Daily.
George W. Jloman received a let
ter from his nephew Fred Denton of
Chadron, telling of an accident
which occurred to his son Arthur
Denton, a young man twenty-four
years of age, who was cutting grass
with a mower, it became clogged.
and he got off the machine to clean
out the trash in front of the cycle
bar, when the team started up
cutting off one of his legs, and oth
erwise injuring him, that he died
shortly afterwards. This happened
near aientine, the remains were
taken to Chadron for burial.
WILL J. FERGUSON HAD A WAT-
ER MELON PATCH WORTH
$200.00 GONE NOW.
Fronr Monday's Daily.
During the summer Will J. Fer
guson, has worked hard and has a
most beautiful patch of watermelons
which over conservative estimates
placed at a value of more than $200.
Admitted that it would have cost
something to have harvested and
marketed them, the value was there
and as they ripened he could have
cared for them. The other night
a lot of boys got into the patch, an
carrying the melons out into the
adjacent cornfield, there cut them
open, to find many of them green
and not fit to eat, so back they went
and brought out more, and as there
were twenty-five of the boys they
made havoc with the patch. Not sat
isfied with this they tramped tue
melons left in the patch and the
ines on which more were growing
destroying them. The matter of
tealing water melons is one thing
and the matter of destroying the
property as this has been done, is
quite another. While Mr. Ferguson
could send a large number of boys
to the reform school, and no doubt
hat many are needing it. he is re
fraining for 'the boys sake. Some
have agreed to pay and have paid
two dollars for the damage done
which ten dollars per person would
not more than liquidate the dam
ages. The boy problem for the par
ents in town Is a hard one to
andle. and which the parents and
boys both find it difficult to cope.
Still one cannot suffer this kind of
a loss, when he has the number of
children to support that Mr. Fergu
