"I'licle" Moses Conner is one of
the pioneers of Nebraska. Twenty
live years ago he made his home in
Drownville, and he still resides in the
same house. He is now a very old
man, but as full of virtues as lie is full
of years, and there lias never been a
hard word whispered of him in his life.
Ho commands the love and respect of
all who know him. His wile is a wor
thy partner f his home. The occasion
of these personal remarks is the receipt
of a card announcing that "the friends
of Mr. anil Mrs. Muses M. Conner will
tender them a reception at the Marsh
opera house, Wednesday evening. Oct.
2ttth, on the fiftieth anniversary of
their marriage." While the event,
which occurred last night, may not
have been the "grandest" in the social
history of the cultured little city of
Drownville, there is no doubt that for
numbers and enjoyment it takes no sec
ond place. A number of friends of the
aged couple sent from this city their re
grets, accompanied by suitable golden
manifestations of their esteem. w1

Suddou Death of J. M. Paulliu.
On Tuesday evening this week the
news reached this city that .1. V. Paul
liu, an old settler of Aspinwall had
died very suddenly. Several different
rumors .became at once current as to
the manner of his death. One was that
he had committed suicide; another,
that he was found dead; another, that
he had died under the Influence of
chloroform while undergoing a sur
gical operation. Realizing that we
were not likely to obtain collect In
formation within Hie short time we
had before issuing tho Anvr.imsr.u,
the odit.vr, accompanied by L. L. llul
burd, Hsu,., tailed through the rain
and mud for the m-ciic of the death.
Arriving at Nemaha City ainuit l'
o'clock, we found tin object which had
called us out. In the operating room
in the olllce of Dr. 15. Dell Andrews, in
the repose of death was the body ot
Milt. Paullin. Present, were Sheriff
Klockner--who in the absence of the
coroner was acting coroner Deputy
SheiilT Liiniion, and a jury of si good
and law ful inon. Witnesses were
sworn and the following facts elicited:
Dr. Andrews, first interrogated, said
Mr. Paullin that afternoon called al
his olllce to have his hand examined
and treated, the index linger of which
had for se oral weeks been very pain
ful and in an extremely bad condition.
The Dr., after an examination of his
linger, called in Dr. .John Ciini, and it
was agreed that the only mode of relief
was amputation. They then adminis
tered to patient chloroform hv the use
ot a handkerchief, in hand of Dr. Crini.
Tho patient was under the power of the
chloroform onl from live to ten min
utes, during which liino the amputa
tion, at. the knuckle joint, was pet form
ed by Dr. Andrews. The patient seem
ed entirely relieed of the influence of
the narcotic talking rationally about
various matters, laughing and ex
changing jokes with friends. To the
question, "Do you not feel asif drunk V"
lie answered, "No, I do not feel (Ii link V"
Dr. A. had stepped into the buck room
to attend to tho wants of some one,
when a gentleman present said, "Paul
lin seems to be going to sleep." The
Dr., hearing Hie remark hastened to the
alllicted man and comprehending his
danger, hastily laid him on the floor,
and endeavored to resuscitate him. H(
died within one minute from the first
death symptoms; and one hour ami ten
minutes after he bail come from under
inlluciice of tho chloiofoiin. Dr. A. is of
the opinion that he died from "shock"
- -blood clot in the heart.
Dr. Crini lestilled, confirming Dr.
Andrews' statement in eveiy pnrticul.ii
legarding the surgical operation, the
administration of chloroform, and the
length of time patient was under its
influence, About two and a hull' ounces
of chloroform was poured onto a cloth,
applied for inhalation by him. Was
not present at the death. Death not
sudden enough for apoplexy. Had not
arrived at any opinion as to cause of
tho death. Did not think it was the
chloroform, as there weie no medical
authority sustaining the idea that death
ever occurred from chlorofoiin after
tho patient li'id recovered horn its in
fluence He had had ii ii-Ii experience,
and the present case had been handled
with due skill and caution. Deceased
before ho died was entirely free from
the effects of tin norcotic, and talked
rationally with those present, and
ohcorl'ully. A work on medical Juris
prudence was read sustaining tho theory
that persons who die from chloroform
al .vays dio wl lie directly under its iu
llueuce. Then Messrs. Walter Swopo, .John
Dlair, S. W. Hurelav and Wm. If. Davis,
all testified that they were present
when thechlorofoiin was administered
to deceased, and when ho recovered
from its effects, and .all agreed that the
time did not exceed fise minutes. They
also talked with him aftei bis recovery,
or heard him talk and believed him
rational and fully rccowred from the
inlluoiico of the chloroform. Tho jury
rendeied tho following verdict:
