Seriously Injuhkd. While Mr.
K. P. Chance, and wife, living near
Cowles, were on their way to Red
Clomd this morning, Mrs. Chance
steod up in the wagoe, and attempted
te fix the wraps more securely about
her. Owing to the cold wind sho wns
much bundled up, and the buegleiouic
weight of tho olothcs with tho motion
of the wagon threw her out behind
the horses. In falling, she struck the

wagon and taken to town to Mrs. Sapp'e

summoned, and while the naticat is
in a critical coidition, she is receiv

Sad Death nv Suiche. A few
days ago Deputy Sheriff Tomlinioo
took a patient to the asylum at Lin
coln, and the authorities there pos
itively refused to admit him, as they
alleged the number of patients there
then exceeded their accommodations
by thirty or more. John was persis
tent however, and through a personal
interview with the governor, he final
ly secured his influence, in making
room for the patient, not without a
promise however, that he would remove
that patient 01 his first trip to Lin
coln again. In the meantime Mrs.
Kmma Cunningham, living at Amboy,
had been adjudged insane by tho board
of insanity, and John, well knowing
the circumstances at Lincoln, sougkt
to briag her to the jail in lied Cloud,
where such unfortunates are usually
conGncd before being taken te the
Lincoln asylumn. Mrs Cunningham's
case was a peculiar ene, inasmuch as
sho was at tines perfectly rational,
and deplored hcr.own condition bitter
ly. Hence, when she was asked to go
to Red Cleud, she refused saying that
she realy desired te go to the asjluin,
but not to the jail. It would bo well
to stato here, that she had been mar
ried to her husband but two months,
and he protested vigorously against
her going anywhere, until a place
could be had for her in (he asylum in
Liucoln; as a consequence ho agreed
to guard her olosely till arngtments
wero made for her uafo keeping, and
but for unscruplnus management, she
would have been in a few days, safely
cared for in Liucoln. But such was
not her destiny, and early Wednesday
morning wherein it is said her mind
was in tho worst condition, sho nent
her husband to the mill on some er
rand, nnd hastily securing a short rope
went to a small cavo near by, tied tho
rope aound her neck, aud attaching it
to a rafter overhead, threw her weight
