while It has naught of tho scandalous

gonial, gentle, kindly old man, on tho
Hupornnuntcd list, somewhat reduced
In finances, but rich In the esteem and
friendship of a wide Haptlst circle.
Miss Mulhern Is nbout !50 years old,
probably on tho shady side of tho half
century mark. Her temper Is not tho
sweetest, from all accounts, and It la

tho local missionary work for tho Foun

by subscription, prominent members of
the church chipping In to make up tho
necessary amount, and while her work
was missionary in Its nature her posi

of "assistant pastor." Sho was em
ployed originally under Hev. Dr. Kerr

Dr. Jackson. The method of support
ing her by subscription continued until
two years ngo and then the church
trustees wero Induced to put her uumu
In Jio budget and for a year her salary
was paid by tho church.
A year ago tho trustees decided that
her services could bo dispensed with
and sho was dropped, and not until
after tho action had been taken did
Dr. Jackson know of it.
Tho relations between tho pastor and
tils assistant hud not been harmonious
from the beginning. Iiroitght up under
her father's pulpit, a disciple or tho old
school Haptlst, Miss .Mulhern was of
tho hard-shell variety, while Dr. Jack

with Dr. Jackson's views on doctrinal
points, his liberality was not accord
ing to hor way of thinking, his ad
vanced position was contrary to tho
traditions hIih had been brought up to
consider. She remonstrated with him
nnd argued nnd protested, thou, as tho
story rocs, lost hor temper. She be
gan "hackcapplng" tho pastor among
tho people and endeavored to Injure him
by Insinuation and Innuendo,
When flho was dropped from tho pay
roll sho blamod Dr. Jackson for It, nnd
a few wcekB later, at a church meet
ing, arose In hor seat nnd charged him
with it, and thereby created 11 sousa
Hon. Tula wbh allowed to pass by, and
a few months later sho arose In prayor

was submitted to the congregation at

recommendation was adopted without
a dissenting voice. Miss Mulhern

Now she has begun suit for $2d,0')0 ,

An express agent running between
Toxtka and Smith Center had a thrill
ing experience ono night a short timo

Tho night was dark mid cloudy, mid
the train was going about forty-llvo

himself iu his car mid was preparing
to check up tho bundles. lie wu not

containing collins, were among tlio
other express matter checked for Mini
liultau. All was still in the car except
the rumbling of the wheels and the
houghing of Mm wind. It was only
natural, therefore, thut the agent
tdiould jump about six foot into tho
air on hearing a voice apparently in
one of the oollln. saying, "Let me oiu!"
The express agent drew hisruvolvi r,
prepared for anything, ami Inquired:
"Whore are you?"
"Let me out!"
"Well, where aro you'.'"
"Let mo out," was ul. the answer
ho could get lu a tone like a voice
from the tomb.
The express ugent was not super
stitious, lint he was, by this time,
thoroughly alarmed. He unlocked
tho reur door of thecal-mid summoned
tho conductor, brukonion mid porters.
It was his intent ion to open the caskets,
If necessary, and comply with the re
quest of the mysterious voice. Ono
collln was placed at (iu end of the cur
und the other collln at, the other end.
Thou tho express agent inquired:
Vho are you now?"
"Uit me out'" paid the voice, not
from either collin but from a pile of
miscellaneous express matter where
thoy had Ix-eu. Stealthily und with

Om mi v, Neb.. April :.'7. Judge Koy
sor of the district court hasgiven out a
statement that the report sent out iu
press dispatches that he had decided
that the gold clause iu a mortgage can
not he enforced is untrue. It appears
he only refused to decree payment iu
gold because the mortgage iu question
gave the debtor the option of paying,
in gold or its equivalent, and the testi
mony showed other forms of money to
be of equal value with the gold at. this
time. It Is to be inferred from tlio
judge's statements that he would en
force n gold clause.
