Shot at a Charivari Party.
Last Saturday night, or rather early
Sunday morning, while a party of
young men were enjoying tire rather
questionable pastime of charivaring a
young couple by the name of Johnson,
who were recently married at Omaha
and live some seven miles west of Loup
City, one of the party, by the name of
Felix Kowelewski, received the con
tents of a loaded shot gun at close
range, the wound being between the
elbow and shoulder of one arm, the
muscles and flesh Icing badly torn.
Wnile the wound is quite serious, no
fatal results may lie expected. Dr.
Long attended the wounded man. As
to how the shooting occured. none of
the interested parties will sav whether
it w is accidental or not. ^N'o arrests
have been made, however, and none
may lie expected

Whittier, Cdif, March 12.-Editor
Burleigh: We are having a lovely
time. We had a nice trip across the
mountains from Nebraska to the Coast,
with but little snow on the way. but
plenty since we got here, «Vhen we
got to Portland, across the hay from
San Franc'sco, »e went do n the
coast to Los Angeles along the Pacific
ocean Arriving at Los Angeles, we
immediately^lelt for Whittier. 21 miles
east and south This is .1 live town of
4,000 inhabitants, sin rounded liy a
beautiful country. It lies along the
foothills, which are as green as can be,
at the foot of which are the orange and
lemop ranches. I wish you Nebraska
people could see and pick the oranges
off the trees They are line and don't
taste like the ones we get back home.
There are also lots of English walnuts
here, but only get one crop of them a
vear. Lemons they pick every month
in the year, and you can r-ee them ripe,
green and in bloom 011 the same tree at
the same time There me two kinds of
oranges here, so von mav find oranges
on the tr*-es all the time. In any stage
of growth. The rancher-* are getting
good prices fur the‘r fruit at present
Naval oranges are paying from 8600 to
8700 per acre, and I know of peopie who
have been offered 81.200 per acre for
! their Valinclia oranges on the trees and
have refused. Orange and lemon
ranches are selling from 81,000 to 81,600
per acre There is abundance of oil
here. I have lieen up in the foothills
to the od wells. All of the steam is
made with oil. It is their fuel. The
railroads aise oil instead of coal. M,
aunt, where we are visiting, uses
gasoline for cooking purposes, but there
is no need tor lieai ing stoves. We have
the windows opep just as we do in
summer in Nebraska. We have visited
at two d beach resorts—New
port and Long Beach, and it is fine to
see the old Pacific, with water as tar as
the eye can see. We leave southern
California tomorrow night for San
Francisco, thence to the northern part
of the state. VVe had no idea of stav
ing here as long as we have, but it is a
good place to be in. Well, I will close
for tins time. There is so much to
» rite about that it is impossible to give
even a faint conception of the grandeur
! of this country nnd so will wait till I
; cat* tell it by word of moutli. after I get
' home. As a postscript, will add. we
! never lelt letter nor had better
' appetites in our lives than now.
