W. J. Fisher, Files Contest for
County Attorneyship, for
Which Returns Show
J. S. Pedler Was
Alleged Violation of Corrupt Prac
tices Act at Primary and Reg
ular Elections and Alleged
Illegal Count of Demo
cratic and Socialist
Votes in Kis
A sensation was sprung last Friday. I
when VV. J. Fisher, late nominee of
the progressive party, through his at
torneys, U. J. and II. S. Nightingale,
tiled papers in a contest against J. S.
I'edler, who the returns show was
elected over W. J. Fisher for county
attorney ao the late election by nearly
300 majority.
The allegation, which cover some
twelve pages of typewritten copy,
gives three grounds of complaint, the
lirst being alleged violation of the
corrupt practices act in securing the
nomination at the primary election;
the second covering the same grounds
at the genera, election, and the third
reciting erroneous count of ballots on
tlie democratic and socialist ballots
in favor of the defendant.
Loup City Girl
Goes to China
We have received at this olllce from
Washington, 1). C., the announcement

wife of Los Angeles, Calif., have ac
cepted tliexall ot the General Confer
ence of Seventh Day Adventists,
which lias its world headquarters in
that city, to go to China as mission
aries for that denomination. What
makes the announcement of peculiar
interest to the people of Loup City
and Sherman county is the fact that
Mrs. Wood was formerly Miss Florence
Nightingale of Loup City, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. T. S. Nightingale,
who moved from here to Southern
California a few years ago. Mrs.
Wood was born and grew up to woman

Fortunate Accident
Last Friday morning, while Mrs.
Geo. Zeigler, and her daughters, Mrs.
Lsman Pray and Miss Zeigler, were
coming into town in their double
seated carriage, driven by the younger
daughter, and when near A. J. John
son's place northeast of the city, a
boy who was working for Mr. Zeigler,
and was coming into town with them,
suddenly struck one of the horses
with a whip, causing ttie team to
swerve against a bank, dpsetting the
carriage and occupants, badly damag
ing the vehicle but with no injury to
those driving therein. An auto com
ing along just at that time brought
the ladies on into the city. It was
miraculous that no serious injury re
sulted, as when the carriage over
turned the ladies were for a time
pinned underneath. However, when
struck with the whip, the plunging
team broke the doubletrees and were
detached from the vehicle, or the re
sult would undoubtedly have been
Stecker Wins Over Mil

Fast Preliminary Between Robin
son, State Welterweight Cham
pion, and i6-Year-Old
Clarence Miller
The wrestling game at the old opera
house Monday night was hot stuff
while it lasted and was gamey as has
ever been pulled off in this city.
The (match was between our local
champion. Warren Miller, and one Joe
Sleeker, an unknown quantity, hail
ing from Dodge, this state, but who
proved by far the best man appearing
here and would rank with such men
as Gion, Wassem and others.
About one hundred of our lovers of
the sport were present and we have
heard no complaint of not getting
their money's worth.
Preliminary Tussle
The preliminary was tirston deck.
Referee C. W. Conhiser announcing
and introducing Ross Robinson of
Lincoln, champion welterweight of
the state, and Clarence Miller, the l(i
year-old son of Eugene Miller, who at
once proceeded to mix, giving fifteen
minutes of very pretty work, Miller
for the most part working on defen
sive and had prevented the champion
from pinning his shoulders to the mat
when time was called.
Ttiis contest was not intended to he
to a finish, but rattier to show the
quality and ability of our young ama
teur and see an exhibition of tiie work
of Hess Robinson, who holds the
state welterweight championship in
the wrestling game. He is a ap
pearing young fellow, sturdy, with
veil knit frame, of clean habits and
a protegee of Farmer Burns, which
speaks well for the young man, who
will appear here next week with the
veteran, announcement of which ap
pears elsewhere in this issue.
The Big Event
At tlie close of the preliminary came
the big event of the evening between
heavyweights Miller of this city and
Stecker of Dodge. As the big fellows
came forward, the upper parts of
their bodies’ bare, and their giant
frames fiom their waists down en
cased in trunks and their well trained
muscles playing in the electric light,
a murmur of admiration greeted
them. Stecker was perhaps two
inches taller than Miller, the latter
being just (i feet in height. In weight
it was claimed Miller tipped the beam
at 18.5 pounds, while Steker was two
pounds heavier, although we were
later assured Stecker balanced the
scales at 204 pounds, and he looked it.
In age, Miller was 20 years, while his
antagonist confessed his age at 19.
Atwordfrom Referee Conhiser, the
men advanced, shook hands broke
away, and then clinched. From that
on for the hrst five minutes, the fun
was fast and furious, clinches, break
aways and foot work predominating,
with honors about even. Then the
superior height, reach, training and
experience began to tell and Miller
was placed on the defensive, in vain
attempts to dislodge the husky Bo
hunk, get the upper and save his
shoulders from the mat. At succes
sive times Steelier got in the toe hold,
hammerlock and other danger signals
but the nervy Loup City boy balked
and stubbornly refused to roll, and at
one time the big fellow let up on the
hammerlock after Miller’s arm was
bloodless to the finger tips and re
sembled the twist of a hemp rope,
rather than going further with possi
ble injury. However, the uneven bat
tle could have but one ending and at
the end of 18, aiinutes the mat bore
the imprint of both of Miller’s shoul
ders and the first fall accredited to
iiiteen minutes rest, was then tak
j en, after which the wrestlers locked
horns, but the hammerlock hold had
left Miller in such shape lie was una
ble to put up good work and within a
minute the Dodge lad had fored him
to the mat and won the second fall.
It was no cause for iiumiliation to
our Loup City boy to lose the battle,
but rather to his credit that he was
able to put up the royal battle lie did.
His opponent has been in the game at
least four years to Miller's one, is
thus more experienced and seasoned,
so to speak, and better able to get
in points to his favor, besides having
advatages above enumerated.

Two Indian Horse Thieves Cap
tured at Berwyn
Sheriff .Joe Wilson. Deputy Chas.Orr
and Deputy Sheriff ('. M. Hahn, of
Cherry coontv made an important
criminal haul on Saturday forenoon
of last week when they gathered in at
Berwyn "Brown Takes the Gun,” bet
ter know n as*-Little Eagle,” and Peter
Thompson, alias “Little Bear..’ two
Indians from Standing Rock, in the
vicinity of Rosebud Agency.
According to partial admissions
made by Little Bear, the two noble
red men are indirectly concerned with
a regularly organized gang of horse
thieves that operates between Rose
bud agency and Western Nebraska.
For some time past, horses have been
disappearing from Cherry county at a
rate not at alf pleasing to the resident;
of that section, and the officers of the
county have been unusually active in
their efforts to locate some of the
missing stock.
To this end. Deputy Sheriff Hahn
started out of Valentine with only t lie
slenderest of clues to work upon and
It was only when he readied the place
of J. B. Watts, near Seneca, that lie
struck Uie rigRbjBail, leading to the
capture of the fndifns.
He was talking with Mr. Watts, who.
by the way, had a stolen horse recov
ered for him by Sheriff Wilson several
months ago, when the latter gentle
man mentioned the fact that two In
dians had recently passed that way
with a hunch of horses, and gave the
direction they took. This was enough
for the officer from Cherry, and, ac
companied by Mr. Watts he started
out to pick up the trail.
They found that the alleged horse
thieves were apparently headed toward
Broken Bow, and when they reached
Dunning, there was no doubt of it
whatever. Mr. Watts, wiiose confi
dence in Sheriff Wilson’s ability to lo
cate stolen iiorses was unlimited,
suggested that the Custer county
official be notified at once and Mr.
Ilahn acted upon the suggestion.
It was Friday evening when the
telephone wires in theshierff’s office
at Broken Bow commenced to get
busy. Sheriff Joe was out of town at
the time, but Deputy Orr was on deck
and at once started to get action on
Ansley, Calloway, Oconto,Westerville
and other places. Later in the even
ing information was received thattwo
Indians answering the description
given, wereat Berwyn with a couple
of horses, and had them stabled at
Roy Welch’s barn.
About this time, Deputy Ilahn and
his companion arrived on the local
freight from the west and Sheriff Joe
rolled into town by auto. It was
agreed not to start after the fugitives
until Saturday morning, thereby giv
ing the western officers a chance to
rest up. At nine o’clock the follow
ing morning, Sheriff Wilson, Deputy
Orr, Deputy Hahn and Mr. Watts
boarded Joe’s 4-seated car and started
in the direction of Berwyn.
They were there all right and as
soon as the officers started to arrest
them, made an attempt to put up a
gun light. Messrs. Wilson and Hahn
were prepared for this, however, and
in a few seconds the fugitives were
overpowered and their shooting irons
taken from them. One had a regular
38 gun and the other a 38 on a 45
frame. Both wore belts well tilled
with cartridges.
Liitle Bear, who seems to be tl»e
‘•bad man,” of the two. has not been
out of theNebraska penitentiary very
long, having been pardoned after
serving three years of a five-year sen
tence for horse stealing. Two horses
were found in their possession, a third
having been disposed of to a local
liveryman, when the two passed
through this place last Friday.
Deputy Sheriff Hahn expected to
lind some of the missing stock from
Cherry county, but upon examination,
the animals were found to bear the
brand of the Rosebud agency. Later
in the day. the officers wired to the
agency and ascertained that the horses
had been stolen from there. This
puts the case up to Uncle Sam and
the Indians will be turned over to a
United States Marshal.
After Little Bear had been safely
secured he showed a Christain spirit
bv remarking: ‘H’d like to see about
fifty Indians make a raid on this place
and have you fellows crawl under the
barn, then I’d set (ire to it and listen
to you squeal,!’—Custer Chief,
Oil of Cloves Is the Best Home Rem
edy for That Most Distress
ing Pain.
There are very few people who have
not experienced at some time of their
life that nagging, persistent pain
known as toothache, a pain that tends
to drive one to distraction, and
which one is at loss to know how to
control. In most of the common
aches, a measure of relief can be ob
tained by the use of liniment, by rub
bing or by heat; but the excruciating
pains inside the tooth often defy such
simple remedies.
The pulp, or nerve, as it is some
times called, closely resembles a small
liber of beefsteak, and lies in the
middle of the tooth. Being thus en
cased in a bony socket, when it be
comes inflamed and starts to swell,
there is no opportunity to enlarge, and
this is one of the reasons for the
severe pains. A similar inflammation
in the arm, for instance, of that
amount of tissue would hardly be no
Toothache may be roughly divided
Into two classes, those cases In which
the nerve is alive and those in which
the nerve is dead. “But,” says some
one, “I do not see how any tooth can
ache without a live nerve; there must
be some mistake.” There is no mis
take, nearly one-half of the toothache
v. e have comes from just such cases.
When you see some one going around
with his cheek all swelled out, as if
he had eaten an apple dumpling and
forgotten to swallow it, you may be
certain that he has no live pulp in
the tooth that is causing the trouble.
Of the many remedies for toothache,
the one best adapted for the home is
oil of cloves. It is fairly efficient for
all forms of toothache, is mild in its
action, and does little damage If It ac
cidentally spreads on the tissue.
Strong solutions containing carbolic
acid, such as are often sold in the
form of liquids, or waxes, should be
avoided, as very often the mouth is
burned by their use.
When the pulp is alive the tooth Is
sensitive to heat and cold, sweets
hurt it, and anything thrust into the
cavity causes intense pain. It gen
erally has what we style jumping
pains, but there is little soreness, or
swelling. In these cases if the cav
ity is gently wiped out with a pledget
of cotton, and a small piece of cotton
saturated with the oil is laid in the
bottom and held in by a larger pellet
of cottcn, the pain will generally sub
side, if there has not been too much
When the pulp is dead, the pain is
dull and heavy, the tooth is sore and
feels longer than the others when we
bite. In time there is swelling and
much distress. In these cases there
will not be much relief from the medi
cine unless it should happen that the
cavity is open to the dead pulp and
the medicine can get to it. Home
remedies are useful only as expedients
to quiet pain until more permanent
and reliable service can be secured.

Gold Is Usually Best for the Purpose,
but Other Materials Often
Are Used.
Of all the materials used in the fill
ing of teeth, none other has won
quite so universal regard as gold. We
learn from history that it was per
haps the first substance to be used
lor this purpose, and while the man
ner of using it has changed, it still
holds an important place in the equip
ment of the dentist. The advantages
that gold possesses as a filling ma
terial are many. It more nearly ap
proaches the color of the teeth than
any olher metal; it can be easily
placed in the cavity of a teeth so
firmly as to prevent further decay; it
is not affected by the saliva or the
foods that we eat. and it does not
discolor the tooth that is filled.
Many people have no other filling
in their teeth than gold, and with
those who can afford it, and who de
sire it, it docs very well. The usual
methcJ, however, is to rely upon the
judgment of the dentist as to which
filling material is best adapted to each
tooth. For instance, an average
mouth may show gold fillings, amal
gam fillings, gold inlays, porcelain in
lays, crowns of various sorts and
bridges, all serving a useful purpose,
and placed according to the dentist's
best judgment.
The usual location for the gold fill
ing is the front teeth, where its dura
bility and its freedom from staining
render it valuable. Where the cavity
is large and it would thereby be very
noticeable, it would be better to use a
porcelain or enamel filling, though as
a rule they are not as durable.
Many people in order to economize
have their teeth filled with cement in
stead of gold, and while somet.imes
this may be necessary, yet as a rule it
is poor economy, for geld is a per
manent filling, while with the cheap
cements we may only hope for tem
porary relief.
Some people shew peer fasts in try
ing to have their teeth display as
much gold as possible, much after the
style of the jockey who sports a mar
sive watch chain. Others carry their
sensitive feelings too far the other
way, and will not allow any gold in
their mouth whatever, even if it is the
one thing needful to preserve the
tooth. Hoth the*e extremes are
wrong, and the sooner we get to us
ing better judgment the better for our
teeth. The shape of the tooth, its lo
cation, condition arj other points en
ter into the question so largely, that
alter all the decision of the proper
