DEATH OF D.
NEWS OF WHICH PRODUCES A
DEEP SHOCK TO FRIENDS
OF THE YOUNG MAN.
From Monday' Dally.
When the menpe -was received in
this city yesterday noon announcing
the death of Harris ook. it came as
;i dp shock to the many hundreds

mid was c. ni-t'sage hard to believe,
us but a few short weeks ;:u;o he had
been back in the old home full of
liie and briphi visions of the future.
The first intimation of the death
came in a message of incjirlry from
the head of the police department of
Chicago to the chitf of police of
Plait-mouth and was followed by a
message to G:rre O. Iovey of the
Firs: National Dank from the heart
broken mother at Rock Island, con
arming the sad news.
The death of Harris followed an
initiation staged by some thirty stu
dents of North western university at
Italian hall, and was caused from a
severe attack of heart trouble brought
on by the excitement of the initia
tion and in thirty minutes from the
time of liia hrsi si-ns of illness the
ymias man had passed away.
He was hurried from the hall
where the initiation and banquet was
stuped to the Xi I 'si Phi fraternity
house at 17 OS Prairie aveuue. Dr.
Juan S. Koll jiig ws summoned to the
side of the young man and it was de
cided to remove him to the St. Luke's
hospital. Harris passed away as he
was being taker, from the fraternity

In his bovhood Harris was united
with the St. Luke's church of this
city, of which both the parents were
devout members, and he has con

There are few young men who
have enjoyed the universal friend
ship of everyone in the community
as has this bright and genial young
man and to those with whom he
was associated closely his death
brines the deepest grief and his loss
will be one hard to replace in the
golden circle of friendship.
There is in the seperation of death
the pain that only the tender band
of passing years can soften to the
hearts that are grieve-i and thus to
go when the sun of life is still in
the dawning of years that have held
the promise of opportunity, is doub
ly hard to bear, taking from the
w orld as it does one who had promise
of a brilliant future.
The memory of this splendid young
raan will linger with those who have
loved him. as a beautiful dream of
rn ideal manhood, unspoiled by the
rouzh and rugged contact with the
world of suffering and of pain and
in the land beyond the vision of our
mortal eye he will find the joy end
happiness of a never ending day and
a final reuniting and meeting with
those vihoiB he has loved on earth to
pass away 'in more.
The body of Mr. Cook is expected
to arrive iu the city tomorrow morn--on

GAME TQ BLAIR
VISITORS SNATCH VICTORY OUT
OF WHAT LOOKED SURE TO
BE A TIE GAME.
From Mondays Dariy.
Yesterday afternoon the football
fans, gathered at the Red Sox park
to witness the struggle between the
local American Legion team and the
team representing the city of ltlair,
and as a result of the meeting the
visitors returned home victors by a
score of 1 4 to 0.
The game opened with both sides
playing a well balanced game and the
locals were able to make gains in
their lire drives with Hell and Niel
starring in their gains over the visi
tors and the contest looked good for
a nothing to nothing score.
In the fourth quarter of the game
the Blair team uncovered a very suc
cessful series of plays and through a
brilliant end run scored their first
touchdown of the game. Their use
of the aerial route was almost alwavs
succtissful while ,he Plattsmouth

being intercepted by the visitors.
The second touchdown of the game
came when the Blair team had ad
vanced into the Plattsmouth terri
tory by successful passes and one of
the aerial attacks permitted their
runner to take the pass and carry
the ball over for the successful
touchdown and with the two goal
kicks gave them their final score.
The locals battled hard in the I'c w
few remaining seconds of play, but
were unable to go over and a defeat
was checked up against them.
The Legion team will play the
Thorpian team of Omaha on the local
lot Thanksgiving day. the- game be
ing called at 10: "0 in the morning,
and will give the members of the or
ganization an opportunity of work

While the attendance . was poor
yesterday it is hoped to have a much
larger number present Thursday for
the big wind-up cf the season.
Falling Prices of Fanners Products
Ought to Produce Some Effect on
Retail Markets of City.
The past few weeks have been very
trying ones for the farmers of the
west in the face of a market which
has been going down at skyrocket
speed and in which everything on
the farm has been included in the
fall. In a great many cases there
has been no corresponding change
in the retail markets and while the
farmer has been compelled to accept
large losses in prices for his goods he
has had to pay the full prices for all
has has bought.
The clothing lines have responded
to the falling prices and in a num
ber of cases the large cities have
slashed their grocery and net prices.
An instance of the condition that
forces the farmer is shown by the
purchase made on Saturday on the
stock market at Omaha by the Schaf
fer brothers of this county who on
the market purchased a number of
white face cows for the price of 4
cents per pound on the market and
this price would make the cows in the
neighborhood of $23 each, which is
a great departure from the prices o
several months ago and while this
price is being paidto the farmer for
his cattle, the steaks and other of the
butchered cattle is selling at 32 cents
a pound and it is little wonder that
tnc farmers feel that they are b?i?ig
rtiven the worst of it and ia fact all
the persons who are purchasing un
der this unequal method are not re
ceiving a fair shake it would seem
to a man up a tree.
If the farmer is compelled to dis
pose of his farm products at a low.
price the retail prices should begin
to make a tumble as well.
FARMER PETER JOHNSON
t WAS KICKED BY A COLT
Mr. Peter Johnson, living a mile
and a half southeast of Nehawka,
is reported to be improving as fast
as could he expected, owing to the
serious and painful wound. Mr.
Johnson was kicked in the face by a
colt, which very nearly cost him his
life. The impact from the colt's
hoof broke Mr. Johnson's cheek bone
and nose and the fractured bones
were forced into one of his eyes, mak
ing it necessary for the removal of
the eye permanently. The accident
occurred Wednesday of last week and
the patient was taken to a hospital
in Lincoln that afternoon where an
operation and earful nursing might
be had. The accidet is a very serious
and painful one. but unless lockjaw
sets in. which is a dangerous possi
bility, Mr. Johnson will soon be on
the road to recovery. The accident
is deeply regretted by everyone, who
hope for a speedy recovery. Ne

RETURNS FROM HOSPITAL
An incident of the effective work

of Rasmus Petersen, a young man of
near Weeping Water, and who has
b?en one of the service men of this
county receiving treatment from the
government at St. Louis. Mr. Peter
sen was a nervous wreck on leaving
the army and has been cared for at
the government hospital at Sr. Louis
up vntil a short time ago. He had
expressed a desire to be sent home
and accordingly the matter was tak
en up by the Red Cross central di
vision with Mrs. F. H. Dunbar, the
Cass county secretary of the home
service department and who made
two trips to Weeping Water, getting
in touch with a sister of the young
man and as the sister thought that it
would be for the best to have the
brother returned to his home, this
fact was reported to the central di
vision and who in turn took it up
with the hospital at St. Louis and

Carl Ankerson thought for a while
the other day that he had struck it

out an old cave in the dirt and stone
embankment near his home to put in
a new cave, made the "find" under
the old cement floor when it was
torn up. It was a neat little stone
and cement basin affair some six feet
in diameter and six or eight inches
It looked like it might have been
a secret hiding place under the floor,
but a diligent search failed to reveal
any treasure not even any rare old
whiskey or modern home brew.

13 EXPECTED AT LINCOLN THIS
WINTER ONE-PARTY CON
TROL NOT PEACEABLE
Omaha. Nov. L'u. That represen

who was recently reported as having
sent into his department a gleeful
reference to election results as an as
surance that his own job was made
safe may have misinterpreted the
There is an undercurrent of con
viction among Douglas county re
publicans that the approaching legis
lative session is going to roughen up
the gubernatorial highway and put
the chief executive more acutely upon
the defensive than could have been
pos8iJ.de had tlie democrats secured
control in the legislative houses.
As one prominent member-elect to
the state senate has suggested, the
legislature is so nearly unanimously
republican that its members may take
issue on important measures without
bcinsr susceptible to the charge that
they are lending comfort to the en
emy. When the legislators are all of
the same party, as they will prac
tically bo in the next session, noth
ing that may be proposed can secure
recognition as a genuinely partisan
measure. Under such a condition the
party whip has no stinger attached.
Governor McKelvie is not popular
in Douglas county, and if there is to
be any schism this winter involving
his administration, it might very
logically be expected to originate
here. Among republicans who are
potential in Omaha, including a num
ber who have been elected to the
house and senate, it is admitted that
here is a disposition entertained to
rough-house it for the governor.
Just now the severest criticism with
in his own party is directed at the
prison record justly or otherwise,
some of the forms of leniency extend
ed tow-ard repulsive criminalshave
exasperated many of the partisans
high in the governor's party.
There is little outspoken hostility
here toward McKelvie because of the
code bill. Many of those who ac
cepted that form of state government
as progressive and meritorious have
professed their deep disgust over
paroles and pardons and furloughs
during the past two years. It is this
consideration which is urged by re
publican leaders as the responsible
element for the fact that while'Doug
las county went over 9.000 for Sen
ator Harding. Governor McKelvie
carried it by less than 2.000.
It is this eruptive sentiment with
reference to the administration's
nrif.on record which has DromDted
John W. Cooper, state senator-elect,!
to send to Illinois for a copy of that
state's habitual criminal act and to
announce his intention of introduc
ing a similar measure at the coming
"I believe.' declares Senator Coop
er, '"that it is good law which pro
vides that when a man of criminal
impulses is sentenced to the peniten
tiary, .say, for the third time, it
should be for life, so that society
would be freed of the risks attend
ing the liberty of a man of his class."
One former active republican lead
er who was connected with the con
duct of the recent campaign frankly
declared that this is a rather milli
tant ambition among local and out
state republicans to heckle the gov
ernor. He did not think that this
impulse would be directed toward a
repudiation of the code bill. "But."
he added, "there will be an urgent
demand for a shaking up of the de
partments and a practical reorgani
zation of the personnel."
Republican workers in Douglas
county do not feel that the over
whelming unanimity of partisan af
filiation the coming session is at all
a guaranty of a peaceful session.
They say that they have found simi
lar feeling out in the state.
Generally it is recognized among
party leaders that the "brutal" domi
nance of the party in the session
provides excellent incentive for a
house-cleaning and correction of
mistakes that may have been made
or urged in state government. So
absolute is republican command that
there can be no shifting of responsi
bilities this winter. For whatever
is done or not done in either legisla
tive or executive branches of the gov
ernment the republican party and its
representatives must enjoy the un
disputed credit or blame.
"It is a situation that affords op
portunity for strong meajn the
dominant party to manuever com
mendable reforms and it is quite
generally recognized that there are
many strong- men slated for partici
pation in the deliberations. I fully
expect to witness about the scrappi

the death as that of status lymphati

Usually in the cases generally com
ing to the attention of the surgeons
of the country this enlargement of
the gland causes death at from twen
ty to thirty years of age. Another
of the symptoms found frequently in
cases where death has been caused
through the status lymphaticus is
that the patient haa been affected
at times with attacks of auto intoxi

was during his service in the navy
affected by a very severe attack of
this kind, although iu his apparent
fine health and his seemingly almost
perfect physical condition, there was
little attention paid to it as it was
though a mere temporary illness.
The deaths usually occur In cases
of physical or metal shocks which
bring on the collapse of the centers
affected and bring almost instant
death and this wae undoubtedly the
cause of the sudden collapse of Har

quite a thorough ransacking and
among the articles taken are quite a
large number of lisle and ilk ladies
hose as well as a few boy's shirts.
The value of the goods taken it is
estimated, will be in the neighbor

The robbers also gave the cash reg

to secure more than $1 in small
change. The stock of shoes that
were on the shelves of the sotre was
scattered over the floor of the store
