Another Big
Mat Match
Another big wrestling match lias
been arraged tor in this city, to take
place next Tuesday evening, Dec. 17,
at Society Hall, to be between Lee
Scott, the big grappler of Ansley, and
Joe Stecker of Dodge, the heavy*
heaight mat artist who trimmed our
local champion, Warren Miller, at the
old Daddow opera house some two
weeks ago. Ernie Milburn has been
busy the past week making arrange*
ments for bringing the two big fellows
together, and Scort and Stecker have
signed to be on hand. The go is for
the gate receipts at the usual pro rata
and both claim confidence of walking
off with the big end. Warren Miller will
be referee and lovers of the sport are
assured that the wrestle will be on
the square and the best man to wia.
Stecker has yet to meet his first de
feat, while Scott challenges any heavy
weight in the state and is big game.
Don’t forget place and date, Society
hall, Tuesday night, Dec. 17, at 8:30.
Good preliminaries.
Rockville Queen of
South Sherman
Through the kindness of Dr. J. E.
Bowman, a few days since, the ed
itor jumped aboard his gasoline joss
and floated down to our pretty little
suburban village of Rockville for an
hour’s visit with the boys. The road
between here and Austin was very
good, but from there to Rockville is
simply horrid Some two weeks since
a subscription paper was circulated
among the business men of this city
and the farmers along the route for
the grading and putting of the road
in better shape. Some 150 was sub
scribed in Loup City and a correpsond
ing amount in work subscribed by the
farmers between Austin and Rock
ville. However, in going over the
road we found but little improvement,
many of those who subscribed work
not finding time to do so, for one
reason and another, and the 950 in
cash not going to any great extent
alone. Something, however, should
be done to make that portion of the
road at least fairly passable. Rock
ville for a fact is one of the nicest
little towns any county could wish.
Nestled in the valley at the foot of
the hills, with the Loup lounging
lazily along to the west of it, with a
fine farming community tributary to
the village aud a live bunch of mer
chants to feed their wants, Rockville
has little else to wish for. And how
could it be otherwise with Emit
Dwehus of the State Bank looking
after the financial end; with Tom Lay
of the Keystone furnishing the ma
terial for the tine homes; Emil Cords
to furnish the necessaries to make
them well and Dr. Dickinson to make
md keep them so; with E. F. Kozel
to make winter a season of pleasure
and warmth in their homes; with
Chris Nielson and J. E. Joynt to give
the people pleasure and profit in gen
eral merchandise; with Clothier Pe
lerson making the men and boys up
to-date; good places for eats; fine
schools, and everything in keeping,
(u fact, it is so nice and enteqrrMug
i village that we are inclined to in
troduce a bill in the legislature, when
sleeted to one of those bodies, to ah
nex it to tire county seat as Loup
City Junior. And we don’t have to
stutter or stammer in saying so.

Grandma Waite
Falls Asleep
Monday of this week, at 12:30 oc
curred the death of Grandma Waite,
who had passed the 78th mile post in
tills life. Her death was peaceful and
the end came quietly and sweetly as
though fallen asleep. For many years
she had made her home with her son,
W. S. Waite in this city her life
was lived quietly in our midst and
death came surrounded by loved ones.
The funeral took place yesterday
afternoon at 2 o’clock from the M. E.
church of which faith she had been
a consistent and faithful member
since early childhood, joining the
church in her 13th year.
J uliette Rosebery Waite was born
October 1st, 1834, in Hunterdon
county, New Jersey. There she was
married on March 1st, 1853, to John
Waite. To this union were born five
sons. Charles E., whose death oc
curred in this city, Feb. 2, 1883; Wil
liam H., who was killed by Mexican
bandits, April 4th, of this year, at
Achotal, Vera Cruz, Mexico; Elmer
E., who is a business man in Van
couver, Wash., where Grandma Waite
vis'ted a few years ago; Willis R., who
lives on a farm some 15 miles north
west of Loup City, and Wilber S., of
this city, with whomthegood mother
lived for the past score of years and
till death called her. Mr. and Mrs.
Waite moved to Minnesota in 1865;
from there to Palmyra, Iowa, in 1867,
and from there to Nebraska in the
fall of 1880, moving on a farm ten
miles north and two miles west of
Loup City, residing there until the |
fall of 1893, and where the husband
and father died in 1891, when Grand
man Waite came to Loup City with
her sons and has since made her home
in this city with her son Wilbur. Her
age was 78 years, 2 months and 8 days.
She was laid to rest in our Evergreen
cemetery, where the bodies of her
husband and oldest son will be
brought from the cemetery at Ar
cadia and laid by her side.
Mrs. J. C. Minshull of Ewan, Wash,
formerly Miss Frankie Inks of this
city, but later of Kearney, was here
over last Sunday to see Mr. Minshull’s
mother before the latter’s departure
for her new home in Virginia, and to
visit numerous other relatives and
friends. She came from her home on
the Pacific Coast to her parents’ home
in Kearney some two weeks’ since.
She will continue her visit some time
before returning to Washington. She
is the guest of Mr. and Mrs. W. F.
Ham Pagrter of Cedar Bluffs, Neh.,
the giant in stature brother of our
handsome Jack Psgeler, was here last
week visiting Jack and Wm. Psgeler,
his Sherman county brothers, leaving
for home Saturday afternoon.

a life beautiful and worthy in every
1 respect. He was surrounded by many
of his relatives, who had warning

he had been suffering for some four
months, being in poor health during
the recent eelebratiofi, although he
braced up for the occftssion and bid

the father of a large family and had
scores of grandchildren to delight
him in his last few years.
He will be greatly missed at the

and “Grandpa” Schoening, as he was
propularly known, will be missed by
more than his Immediate family.

A long line of carriages followed

Grandpa Schoening was for a num

spected by our people.
The Northwestern’s electric motor
for the big power press, made espe
cially to our order, arrived Tuesday
evening from Lynn, Mass,, and was
installed that night and yesterday
morning by Electrician Sweetland.
An especial three-wire direct current
meter has also been placed by the
the electric company, and now our
presses are fully equipped with eletric
motors, the office with new and up
to-date material, making of the
Northwestern one of the very best
printeries in Central Nebraska. But
j. nothing is too good for Loup City,and
we are bound to keep up with the
pace set by the best town on earth.
And by the way we have found out
you will make no mistake in securing
the services of our expert local elec
triciah, Clarence Sweetland, along
electric lines. He has an X-ray eye
for that kind of work.

Sometimes a mine contains a low spot in its
layer of coal. This low spot received the set
tling while the coal was formiug, with the result
that we sometimes get a load of this and then
we have a sooty coal. None of the good mines
intend to send this out for for domestic use, but
sometimes a car gets out and then the coal deal
e has trouble on hand.
Try This Little Secret
Get a good bed of red coals and on dump
your potato peelings, do this for several days.
Your stove or furnace will work much better
and most of the soot will dissappear.
Our coals are the best that we can buy and
contains a very small amount of soot.
Get a load and be convinced.
