Those who did not attend the lec
ture by I)r. A. E. Turner. President
of Hastings College, at the Presby
terian church on Monday evening,
missed a rare treat, as his lecture was
one of the few great lectures delivered
in Loup City in recent years. Dr.
Turner is a genial, affable gentleman
or commanding presence, strong per
sonality and scholarly attainments.
He handled his subject most admir
ably and held his audience spell-bound
for an hour and a quarter. His ever
ready wit and apt illustrations were
met with such hearty response that
the speaker was under the necessity
of pausing again and again for the
applause to subside. Dr. Turner will
always meet with a cordial welcome
from the people of Loup City who had
the pleasure of hearing him on this

the Hot Springs doctors, who was
here last week arranging for their
coming, is a newspaper man and was
correspondent for a leading daily of
this country in China during the
Boxer rebellion. During a portion of
that time Mr. Wilson was an inmate
of a Chinese prison for six months.
Mr. Wilson was also a newspaper cor
respondent in the Phillipines for a
season during the Spanish-Ameriean
war and carries deep scars in the
forehead and on his right forearm, as
mementoes presented him by the
Filipinos in their endeavor to mop
Uncle Sam’s boys off the islands. He
has also been an extensive traveler in
the old countries and we should opine
has seen enough of old Mother Earth
and Neptune’s deep to satisfy any old
man, let alone one of his rather
tender age—only 27 years. He is the
owner of two country newspapers, one
in Kansas and one in Nebraska. Mr.
Wilson is also a contributor to a num
ber of magazines and periodicals, and
one of the brightest young men it has
ever been our good fortune to meet.
