Miss Thompson was born in Yir

married to II . W. Ross in Cedar
Rapids, Iowa, October 20, 1SG7.
She joined the United Brethren
church about eleven years ago, was
baptized and become a member of the
Christian church about one year ago.
She had been afflicted 1G years, suf
fering severely at times, especially
the last 8 months.
She leaves a husband and three
children to profit by her example as
well as to mourn her loss. Four
children have preceded their mother
into cUrnity. In the midst of sick
neen, Buffering, and disappointment
she manifested wonderful patience,
and developed s lofty Christian

Neb., Friday, April 10,
The election last Tuesday under
the new Australian ballot system was
a complete success and was one of the
most quiet affairs of the kind ever
held in the city. Not a bit of elec
tioneering was to be teen and every
voter was permitted to go to the polls
and vote hi sentiments a.s he pleased.
The law is certainly a great success
and a big improvement over the oid
stj?le of holding elections where a
voter's footsteps were dogged to the
cry ballot box by ward heelers and
beconJ class politicians, to see that
he voted right. The Tue-day election
resulted iu the election of
M. B. McNitt, Mayor
T. J. Waid. Clerk
Henry Cook, Treasurer
For members of the school board
Mrs. Ellen J. Ducker, H. E. Fond,
and Geo. O. Veiser.
Alderman 2d ward G. ll.Whitson.
Aldermen 1st ward, M. W. Dicker
sou and David II. Rudd.
Messrs Ward and Cook aie demo
crats, and Mr Whitson independent,
and from that the balance of the tick
et is republican.
Mr. McNitt wn- elected by about
thirty majority over Mr. Rentier.
Tho new ofiicera are good ones and
will do their duty rcgardlsss of fear
or lavor. Wc feel confident that Mr.
McNitt will make one of the beat
mayors that Red Cloud has ever had,
and we think his election show- the
wisdom of having two tickets iu the
field u.- there can be no objection to
the choice of the people. The Chikf
is not inclined to crow over the elec
tion, but will say that the choice of
the people will alioar that th selec
tion of a republican ticket was no
"mistake" as one of our city exchange
was pleased to call it, but on the
other hand was a roaring success
