Warren Miller, our local champion
wrestler, went to Scotia last Thurs
day evening and won over Greeley’s
great mat artist in two straight falls,
the first taking 50 minutes, in which
Kinney escaped for that length of
time every hold and grip Miller could
get, our boy finally pinning the pride
of the Irish to the mat with a liam
merlock and crotch hold. However.
Miller won the second fall in only 50
seconds with a chancery arm hold,
Kinney being about all in, while
Warren seemed as fresh as though he
had been simply practicing a few
minutes for exersise. Now, if Lee
Scott of Ansley is afraid to try con
clusions with Joe Stecker of Dodge,
who some time ago took the measure
of our local boy, as appears to be the
case, we are of the opinion that if he
can be secured for a go with Miller,
the latter will do to him what Steck
er did to Miller. Of course local fans
would rather see a tussel betwem
Scott and Stecker first, with Miller
challenging the winner, but if that
can’t be, let Scott be secured for a
sacrifice to Warren.s skill and superior
J. J. Cox and a Mr. Kerns, the for
mer a commercial traveling freight
agent and the latter connected with
the same department of the Burling
ton system, spent several days in this
vicinity, gathering data and other
material for the proposed extension of
the railroad from here, it was ru
mored. The gathering of freight
statistics is a customary procedure
before an extension is authorized,
and the visit of these gentlemen has
some indication that the attention of
the officers of the road has been
drawn and they acted with favor in
ordering the statistics prepared for
their enlightment. Mr. Lundy, who
came up with these gentlemen, acted
as their guide in showing them where
the information they sought could be
obtained for their reports. Both Mr.
Cox and Mr. Kerns departed for Lin
coln this morning. What their report
will ae could not be learned.
Henry Ohlsen & Son
Contractor Henry Ohlsen made a
business trip to Greeley Monday,
where they have in contemplation a
new court house.
Lathr Word was received from
Mr. Ohlsen that he had received the
contract, under the name of Henry
Ohlsen & Son. Good enough, and our
people will all say, Amen.

Loup City Banquet
Friday evening the Loup City Com
mercial Club held the regular annual
banquet, to which the St. Paul Busi
nessmen’s Club was invited. For
some reason or other none of the club
members from here attended and
they missed a great treat. There
were 165 people in attendance and the
banquet served by the ladies of the
town would have done credit to any
place twice the size of Loup City.
Fourteen addresses were made after
the feasting, most of them bubbling
over with the booster spirit. Some J
of the talks were made in the Bohe- ’
mian, Swedish and German languages.
Secretary Conners of Grand Island,
was among the speakers and in his
address referred to three classes of
work a commercial club could do—lo
cal, state and municipal. He urged
harmony and the burial of personal
prejudices and opinions as necessary
to a successful operation of a club.
The Loup City Club is showing that
it is a live one, out for the best inter
ests of Loup City and the Republican
regrets very much that the St. Paul
club did not send a delegation from
here to represent our city at their
banquet.—St. Paul Republican.

Falls 30 Feet
Tuesday forenoon an appalling ac
cident occurred on the old Wheat
craft place on Davis Creek which
cost the life of the owner.
There was trouble with the wind
mill and the local blacksmith was
called to put things to right. This
mechanic got things along as far as he
could without help and Frank Wheat
craft went up to lend a hand.
Mr. Wheatcraft was kicked in the
head a year ago and had not fully re
covered from the ill effects of the
kick, and it was with misgivings that
he went up the tower.
The work was just about done and
Frank had remarked that he ought
not to be up there, when he evidently
became dizzy. At any rate he fell to
the ground, a distance of some 30 feet,
and received injuries from which lie
could not rally.
Help was rendered to him and
physicians called. Dr. Miller went
from Ord, Dr. O’Neill from North
Loup and there was a surgeon from
Grand Island. But the condition ofj
the man was sucli that no operation
could be attempted.
By the fall a kidney was ruptured
and he bled to death internally. Very
soon after the accident a swelling be
gan to rise on his right side, which
continued to grow as the terrible
hours passed. The man was in great
agony and conscious to the last.
As no operation could be had that
could save him the other doctors left
hut Dr. Miller remained with him till
the end, which came at about 3:00
3’lock yesterday morning.
Tiie deceased was 41 years old on
the 4th of last December. He was a
single man, and a prosperous and well

A surprise was given at Schultz &
Stickles hall last week Wednesday
evening to Mr. and Mrs. A. It. Jack
in honor of their 30th wedding anni
versary, with a tine supper. Some 200
guests were present and the couple
were presented with a dozen silver
knives and forks by their friends
present. The guests engaged in a
social dance till near midnight, when
the supper was served and then the
merry revelers kept up the light fan
tastic till about 2:30a. in., when all
departed for their homes with remem
brance of one of the most joyous oc
casions of the season.
On Tuesday morning of this week,
(Feb. 4th, 1913) at the early hour of 6
o’clock, at the home of the bride’s
mother, Mrs. Flora A. DeCamp, in
St. Paul, Nebr., occurred the nuptials |
of our popular dentist, Dr. S. A.
Allen, and Miss Hazel Beulah De
Camp, one of the estimable teachers
of our public schools the past few
months. Ilev. Dr. D. A. Leeper of <
this city officiating. The groom is
one of the leading dentists of the
state, having been president of the
dental association of this district,
and at present editor of the state
dental society paper, and stands very
high in the councils of his profession
throughout the state.. He is not only
a dentist of state rep if ^e, but is a
leader among our business men and
socially among the first In the younge
set. The bride, while a comparative
stranger to our people, lias won many
friends during her few months stay
with us and has proved one
of our best teachers. They left
shortly after the ceremony and wed
ding breakfast for an absence of a
week or ten days at Omaha and
various points in Iowa, after which
they will return to Loup City and
occupy the new bungalow erected by
John Ohlsen south of the U. P. depot.
The best wishes of their many friends
will follow them in thMr new-found
happiness. They will be at home to
their friends after Feb. 20th.
The constitutional twenty days for
