The following item taken from the
Blue I lil' Time. throws a little more
light upon (he Cox-Tobin allray which
occured in that'town a few days since :
'Thc cause of the row nt Musehow's
saloon Saturday night March 29. which
ended in the death of one of our best
citizens, is not exactly known. Itsecms
there was a general knock down, there
being four or live in it. In the row
Mr. Tobin received a blow from a bil
liard cue, said to have been dealt by
Mr. Cox, which for a time made him
uneoneious. but was nwt thought to be
seriously hurt by his friends. The
wound on his head kept him confined
iii-doors, being able to stir around un
til Tuesday, when he became worse,
inllamation setting in. and on Wednes
day became uneoneious. Dr. Cook, of
Hastings, Dr. Spiekleineir and Dr.
Xaulteus were summoned, but nothing
could be done for him. He died in
great agony Thursday afternoon at li
o'clock. As soon as he was declared in
a critical condition, Mr. Cox was plac
ed under arrest. Fearing violence he
requested them to take him to Red
Cloud, which they did, and feeling in--ecuie
there, at his request they took
bun to Lincoln Friday morning. Mr.
Cox's lears were groundless, as our
people are law abiding, and a great
deai of sympathy is expressed for all
parties. Charles Arnold, who received
some terrible brui-es about the head, is
still in a bad condition.
The funeral took place at the Ger
man Lutheran church last Frid-iv, and
was largely attended, there being a
la rue concourse of people present.
The funeral services weie conducted
by Rev. Brown, which, connected with
Mr. Tobin's death, were very impres
sive. Riisiness was almost at a stand
still in our town during the funeral,

ment was of a very inteie-ting nature
and d.iiring the time many wondorful
things occured that with the closc-t
scrutiny could not be detected by the
audience. The doctor selected a com-
I mittee of eight, consisting "of the fol
lowing named geinleinen. to a.-sist him
viz: A. J. Kcniiev, A. L. Funk, E. II.
Ambler. J. P. .faylui, Rev. O. C. Todd,

ler. The lir-t trick was tho changing
of wine into water. The committee
weie'a-vmbled on the stage and each
were presented with what purported to
to be wine, and then out of the same
pitcher the doctor turned out . glass
of water. The deception was complete
J. P. IJayha was then called on to write
a few que.-tions which he carefullv
stowed away in his pockets and about
an hour atterwards the Doctors wile
while in a trance told him what he had
written eonectly. E. II. Ambler was
was thi'n taken into the cabinet and
the celebrated ning trick was gone
through with, whereby a ring which
was too sinajl to go over his head, was
made to do so, and from around his
neck was placed on his "arm while he
and the Doctor's hands were firmly
cla-ped. Geo. Dodd was not afraid to
die. and consequently was taken into
I tne cabinet where the .-pints played
were done such as slate writing, reeeiv
ing communications from departed
spirit, etc. On Monday evening the
Doctor exposed the whole business,
and then it was that the tricks were
made transparent to the average- citi
zen. The entertainments were very
pleasant and afforded the audience

The committee appointed to meet
Radger.t Son, in reference to starting
a pump factory and foundry in Roil
Cloud concluded that the propositions
of the gentlemen were to steep to lie
considered. It seems that Badger &.
Son wanted $.'000 for the right to tiso
Clough patent in Xebraska, and the
same amount for the state of Kansas,
and would not sell one state without
the other. $1000 of this amount they
proposed to put in a factory and found
ry, along with others who might sub
scribe to start the enterprise. The
committee, however, thought that the
amount was too much, and unless oth
er arrangements could be made by
which the people could .secure the pat
ent right, there was no use in trying to
raise the required amount, and there
fore further negotiations were stopped
The price wanted for the use of tho
patent seems to bo rather high and ex
horbaut, but there are some gentlemen
in the city who were ready to go into
the scheme, believing that it would
have benefitted Red Cloud and been a
paying investment to the stockholders.
It is to be honed that these gentlemen
will not let it drop through, if they
have faith in the future results that
they claim it would produce.

Director's reports come in slowly and
several incorrect. The law makes it
the duty of the superintendent to use
dim diligence to have them correct, so
that parties must not take offence if
their reports go back to them for cor
rection. The teachers' association met at Re L
Cloud last Saturday. There were but
few in attendance, hut they had an in
teresting session and adjourned to meet
at Guide Rock, on the second Saturday
in May. Miss Eva J. King's essays on
"What teachers and parents should
read," is good and we hope to secure
its publication in the School Work. The
same program will be used at Guide
Rock as was intended far last meeting.

HERE AND THERE.
On account of recent illness ray
notes are quite limited this week. On
Monday a ride of seven miles south
east from Red Cloud brought us to the
farm of James Aniack. He has just
completed a new frame house at a cost
of $700. Other recent improvements
around this farm shows Mr. Amack to
be one of the enterprising gentlemen
for which Webster enmity is n tcd.
One mile farther north we arrive at
the home of another pleasant gentle
man, Mr. Wolf:;, with a new frame
house just being finished, and plenty
of other evidences of prosperity
abounding on his farm. One mile
west we came to tho residence of Mr.
C. M. Can field with whom we stopped
over night. Mr- C. and family have
been here only one year, and surely
the go-a-head enterprising farmers of
that section will never have reason to
regret his location among them, for
with his already new and comfortable
frame house, barns, out-houses, etc., he
demonstrates that he is of tho right
material for success. Four miles north
east from Red Cloud on Friday we pull
up at the farm of Mr. Wickwire, who is
building a now house and making oth
er substantial improvements on his.
school land. Mr. W. and family are
pleasant and genial folks to meet.
