W. R. Mellor just couldn't stay
away, and came up from Lincoln
last week to be present at the K.
of P. doings Wednesday evening,
going back the following morning.
Last W ednesday ever mg. the
iocai K_ of P. lodge celebrated ttie
golden anniversary of Pythiamsm
with an entertainment. followed
by a lap sapper of two courses.
The evening was very inclement,
yet a goodly number of the
brothers, their wives and sweet
hearts were present. Sir Knight
Long was master of ceremonies
and made an interesting talk on
Pythianism and the inception of
the local lodge, with more or less
history connected therewith. Fol
lowing that came the program of
the evening. The Pythian Min
strels, composed of Sir Knight
Allen as interlocutor, Sir Knights
Schwaner and Johnson as end
men, with Sir Knights 0. L.
Swanson, Collipriest and Hinman
members. The boys did a fine
stunt, original in their get up and
their instrumental music was
“some classy” and took down the
house and' then some. At the
close of the concert came the eats
and then home, sweet home just
before the hour of midnight. It
was a most enjoyable evening.

Chas. Stromberg, a bachelor
living north of Greeley, was found
dead at his home by one of the
neighbors Saturday. It was at i
first supposed that he had suicided
but eo cause could be assigned for i
such a deed and the general belief
now is that his death was caused !
by the accidental discharge of a,
gun. Apparently lie had just1
seated himself at the supper table1
when the accident occurred. Mr.
Stromberg was about ot years of
age and financially in comfortable
circumstance's. He leaves few, if
any, relatives in this state. —CM
The Ashton Dramatic CSuK
which gave the play "What's
Next,” at the opera house last Fn- j
day. far exceeded the most sari-1
guine expectations of their Loup
City friends gave one of the finest
entertainments so far given in our
new opera house. We have not
space this week to speak in detail
of the cast, which was composed
of some of Ashton’s leading busi
ness men and most accomplished
young ladies, and to speak in
especial manner of some and not |
of all would be manifestly unfair,
for each in his or her part appear
ed perfectly at home in the char
acterization they assumed and
seemed indeed for the time being
the characters they protrayed.
There is one thing assured, and
that is that our little sister village
has plenty of talent and of a high
order, and are thoroughly appre
ciated. as, though the night was
very inclement, and gave a vigor
ous bid for one to remain at home,
the oper^house was well filled and
had the night been pleasant the
opera house would not have been
able to accommodate all who
would have been out to witness
the splendid dramatic work of the
dramatic club.
Robespierre, 3-reel special shown
at the opera house last Thursday
night drew a good crowd who pro
pounced it excellent. Mr. Dad
dow is putting on an excellent
picture service and it is highly ap
preciated by all patrons of that
place of amusement.
Mrs.S. A. Allen went to Omaha yes
terday morning for a few days stay.
Mrs. A. L. Ballinger returned home
to St. Paul Monday, after a few days’
visit here with her mother.
Mr. and Mrs. Richard Allen from
Council Bluffs arrived last Friday for
a protracted visit with their eon. Dr.
S. A. Alien.
Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Nightengale
leave today for Bellingham. Wash.,
their furore home. For a year fir
more Mr. Nightingale had been
closing up his law practise here
with a view of removing to the
Pacific Coast to make their home.
Some months ago Mr. Nightingale
returned from a visit west having
decided on location at Bellingliam.
a city of some Mo.000 inhabitants,
his son going west later and re
maining in Bellingham, while
the father came home to close
up business. For over thirty
years past. R. J. Nightingale has
been practicing law in Loup City,
and is too well known to the peo
ple of Sherman county for us to
a<fd anything to his history here,
where he has l>een one of the lead
ing lawyers of this section all of
these years. I) i ring that time, he
has accumulated one of the most
extensive law libraries in central
Nebraska, and is known to be one
of its most successful legal lights,
considering his prescribed terri
tory. He lias purchased a fine
home in Bellingham, where he
will enter the practice of law with
his son, Herbert, and we fully ex
pect that he will soon be one of the
most active members of the bar
in that city. Mr. and Mrs. Night
ingale will be missed by their
large circle of friends, Mr. Night
ingale in the legal field and in
social and lodge relations, and
Mrs. Nightingale in club and
social circles. The Northwestern
will follow them with best wishes
for their future happiness*.

The meetings at the Baptist
church closed last Sunday, Rev.
Boukoutz and wife going from
here to Dorchester, where we un
derstand they will hold a series of
meetings. During the weeks that
Rev. and Mrs. Boukoutz have
been here in evangelical work they
have endeared themselves to a
large number of people whom they
have met in their work, and have
been earnest workers izx the Mas
ter’s vineyard. They go from
here with the best wishes of our
people for success in their chosen
work. There have been quite a
number of additions to the church
instrumentality and there will be
yet some who will join the church
because of their coming among us. j
The last number of the Lyceum
Bureau entertainments will be

following story about the disap
pearance of Mr*. GwAeld Erring
ton wa- printed:
"Garfield Errington. a woathy
young farmer of Ord. Neb., is ap
pealing to the authorities all over
America to help him find his wife
and 2-year-old daughter. Mrs.
Jessie Errington. 2b years old. and
Goldie, the little daughter, board
ed a train at Ord on December 13,
bound for Omaha they were going
to transfer here and continue their
trip to Melford. Canada, where
she had relatives they intended to
“Errington kissed his wife and
baby good-by, helped them on the
train, watched them enter the
door of the car and has not seen
them since. He is spending hun
dreds of dollars sending a detailed
description of the woman and baby
to points all over the North Amer
ican continent. The first he knew
of their disappearance was when
they failed to appear at Melford
and her relatives wrote to him
asking about her delay.
“Mrs. Errington was light com
plexioned, smooth faced, her upper
corner teeth were missing and the
baby is golden haired.
“We never had trouble, but
I lived happily together during our
five yeais of married life," was
Errington's report to the local
l*>!ice. ‘There was no insanity in
her family and I do not believe
she lost her memory. We both
idolized the baby. I am imagin
ing all kinds of things that could
have happened to her. She has
leen gone three months now and
every hour of that three months

Not a few have called attention
to the too narrow condition of the
cement sidewalks on the main
business street of our city. A
j business man and one of the prin
jciple merchants owning a building
i and doing ft thriving business on
said street, said to the reporter, I
, wish you would call public atten
tion to tiie fact that the walks are
at least three feet too narrow for
the traffic on said street. He
wished sentiment could be brought
in favor of the widening of said
walks at least three feet, believing
it would be for the very best good.
There is no qnestien but that when
ever there is much of a crowd in
our city the walks prove way too
narrow for the use of the people
who line the street, and we be
lieve the widening of sach side
walks would be appreciated.
On Monday of this week, John
Eggers sold his meat market to his

Last Friday evening, about €
o'clock, at bis home in Logan
township.George L. Zigler. one of
the best known and highly resect
ed farmers 'of Sherman county
i died suddenly from a paralytic
stroke. He had just driven in
from the field with a load of corn
fodder and had loosed the tugs
when he fell at the horses heels
under the front end of the wagon,
where his two sons found him a
few moments afterwards and car
ried him into the house. Think
ing he had been kicked by one of
the horses. Dr. Bowman was sent
for who on arrival found Mr.Zigler
dead, had probably died immedi
ately where he was found. Dr.
Bowman phoned to town for Dr.
Main, the coroner, who found Dr.
Bowman's diagnosis as coinciding
with his own. and held no inquest
necessary. The funeral was held
at the opera house in Loup City
Monday following, deceased being
so well and favorably known that
no church would have sufficient
seating capacity to accommodate
all who would wish to pay last re
spects to their departed neighbor,
friend and brother. The funeral
was held at 1 o'clock in the after
noon. fully 509 being in attend
and nearly exhausting the seating
capacity of the building. The
Odd Fellows, of which he was an
honored member, had charge of
, the services, closing with ritual
istic work following short talk and
address by Rev. Boukouts and
Dr. Sutherland of the Baptist
cburclu after which interment was
had in Evergreen cemetery. In
the death of Mr. Zigler, Sherman
count has lost one of her best cit
izens, a man highly respected by
all, and one whose life was most
exemplary and uplifting. In his
death his family has lost a loving,
devoted and affectionate husband
and father; those who knew him
a kind friend, and the people of
the county a progressive citizen.
George Leander Zigler was born
in Lorain, Stevenson county, Illi
nois, Oct. 24, 1862. In February,
1884, he moved to Ashland, this
state, thence that fall to Mar
quette. Hamilton county, living
there until Feb. 19, 1901, when he
came to Sherman county where he
lived until death. In February,
1889, he was united in wedlock t >
Miss Della Weaver, to whom were
born two sons and four daughters,
Ralp, Lee, Grace, Lila, Fay and
Hazel,‘all of whom, with the wife,
survive him. He is survived also
by two brothers and one sister—
J. C. Zigler of Savannah, Ills.; W.
T. Zigler of Marquette, Neb., and
Mrs. Katie Fullrath of Mt. Car
roll, Ills. Deceased united with
the U. B. church in 1894, which
