KILLED .BY A HORSE
A POLK COUNTY FARMER
MEETS SUDDEN DEATH.
Thrown From His Hon and Then Kicked
tn the Head Was on the Way to lila
Son's Farm No Clna to the Alliance
Stbomsbveg, Neb., July 8. Samuel
P. Johnson, a well-to-do farmer living
eight miles northwest of this place,
was thrown from a horse at noon yes
terday and instantly killed. Mr. John
son was in the act of mounting the
horse preparatory to riding to his son's
farm, which was only a short distance
away. The animal was badly worried
by flies and as Mr. Johnson landed on
the horse's back the animal gave a
kick with his hind feet. The sudden
movement of the horse threw Mr.
Johnson to the ground. He struck on
his forehead and it is believed the
horse kicked him on the head. He
REMAINS A MYSTERY.
Mo Tangible Clue aa to the Murder' of
W. H. Hubbell.
Alliance, Neb., July 8. There are,
so far as known, no later developments
concerning the murder of W. 11. Hub
bell, which occurred at Lakeside Sun
day morning. There are some theories
advanced, but no tangible clues. It is
certain that the murder was not com
mitted for robbery, as it was a well
known fact that he never carried any
large amount. Some think there is a
woman in the case, but this is really all
surmise. The funeral occurred yester
day and his family have the sympathy
of the community. A post mortem was
held and it developed that the wound
had caused hemorrhage in the brain.
A Broken Insulator.
Omaha, July 8. An investigation by
the officers of the electric light com
pany of the death of Albert Vocacek at
South Omaha Friday showed that one
of the Insulators on the pole at the
corner of Twentieth and Q streets
where the accident happened, had been
broken and tha slight movement of the
guy wire would bring it in contact
with a live wire, and it is thought that
when young Vocacek placed his hand
on the wire he moved it enough to
push it onto the exposed wire. The
company is being severely censured
for not making the necessary repairs
when the matter was reported to one
of the company's employes. The boy's
parents will bring suit for damages.
Libel Salt Settled.
Nebraska City, Neb., July 8. The
suit for criminal libel brought by E. C.
Burkett, editor of the Otoe County
Chief, against James D. Kelly, editor
of the Progress, which was to have
been heard in court yesterday, has
been settled. Both parties published
statements of retraction and Kelley
was released from jail, where he was
placed after being surrendered by his
bondsmen. In his statement, Burkett
implies that another person is respon
sible for the libel published.
Beatrice, Neb., July 8. The Bale of
the Brown elevators on the line of the
Union Pacific under an order of sale
from the United States court, which
has been going on for a week, has been
completed, E. P. Bacon fc Co., judgment

chasers. Title to the property, how
sver, will have to be determined by

viously been sold to pay taxes.
Tried to Get Rid of the Child.
Omaha, July 8. Edwin Crawford

week old child to the mercy of the
world in a South Omaha hotel Monday,
but were caught and a marriage cere
mony was performed. They then left
for Chapin with the infant.

When one of the most highly respected
residents of a community is known to be
a sufferer from any disease, and is sud
denly cured, it is but natural that the
community should take great interest in
Mrs. M. A. Allen, the wife of Mr. Chas.
M. Allen, of Mt. Vernon, Ind., has long
been known to the inhabitants of oar
beautiful little city to be a sufferer with
severe and relentless heart trouble, and
when it was reported around the city
that she had been cured of her trouble,
the editor of the Democrat, who was
overjoyed to hear of it, took it upon
himself to investigate the case and find
out what caused her cure.
Upon calling at the cozy little home of
the Aliens, the epitor was welcomed in by
the courteous lady, and, after they were
comfortably seated, the editor explained
his mission, and received from Mrs. Al
len the story of her suffering and wonder
ing and wonderful recovery. She was in
the best of spirits, as one would natural
ly be expected to be after recovering
from a long and severe illness. She
stated that her name bad never been in
the newspapers before, and she didn't
much like ths idea; but, in case 01 this
kind, she would relent in order to en
lighten suffering humanity.
She stated that she was fifty-five years
01 age and had suffered from palpitation
of the heart and nervousness for years,
and thought death was at hand. She
tried many remedies but could find no
relief. Sleepless nights and nervousuess
at all times was beginning to tell upon
her. She read of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills in the Mt. Vernon papers, and their
wonderful cures. She did not put much
stock in them, but finally concluded to
Her own words are: "The first two
boxes did me so mnch good that I
thought I would not have to use them
any more. I stopped using them, but
suffered a relapse, however, and com
menced using them again. Since then I
have never had a bad spell, while before-
1 would faint and was unfit for work
and home duties. Now I feel stronger
and better than 1 nave for years.
She looks upon Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills as a God-send, and says she is free
to say tbey are an excellent remedy for
heart trouble and nervousness.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain in a
condensed form all the elements neces
sary to give new life and richness to the
blood and restore shattered nerves.
They are also a specific for troubles pe
culiar to females, such as suppressions,
irregularities, and all forms of weakness.
They build up the blood and restore the
glow of health to pale and sallow cheeks
In men they effect a radical cure in all
cases arising from mental worry, over
work or excesses of whatever nature.
Pink Pills are sold in boxes (never in
loose bulk) at 50 cents a box or six box
