BY HIS OWN HAND
Well Known Cltlren of Newman Grove
Die From Sclf-Inlllcted Itijtirleii.
Singleton B. Cain, a holder of large
real cstato Interests In and around
Newman Grove, lies dead at his home,
In tho eastern part of town, the result
of his own rash act. Last Monday
night, about 8 ' lock, ho came down
town, having promised his family that
ho would meet them at church, vhero
revival services wero being held. Ho
had passed tho church two blocks,
and was in tho heart of tho business
section, at tho Intersection of Fremont
and Hale streets, when ho raised his
right hand with a 38-callbro revolver
and sent a bullet Into his head. A
few seconds elapsed and the shot was
repeated The few people who wero on
tho street wero attracted by tho first
shot, but could not locate tho direc
tion on account of tho echo. When
the second shot occurred tho roan was
seen to stagger and fall, and beforo
any of those nearest could reach him,
he, with his left hand bracing his body
In a Bitting posture, fired two more
shots in quick succession, only oc? of
which probably took effect,
Tho man was picked up for dead
and carried to Anderson's drug store.
Physicians wero summoned and two
of tho bullets extracted, after which
ho w'as carried to his home, whero he
partially regained consciousness,
enough to recognlzo the members of
Ills family, but from tho time he fired
tho first shot until ho expired he ut
tered no sound, not even a groan. Ho
lived fifty-four hours after inflicting
the mortal wound, dying this morning.
Any of tho three Bhots that entered
his head was sufficient to cause death.
Tho third bullet was extracted ysster
day morning by trephining, the opera
tion being done by Drs. Frink and
McMahon, the ball being removed from
the opposite side of the head from
whero It entered.
Mr. Cain Btood well in thiB com
' munlty, was a prominent church and
Sunday school worker, ardent in poli
tics and temperanco, a leader In fra
ternal societies, having membership in
tho I. O. O. F., M. W. A., tho Rebekahs
and Royal Neighbors.
Ho leaves a largo family In com
fortablo circumstances. Ho has left
no word, written or spoken, that would
In any way explain his rash act. If
anything was on his mind, worrying
him, he gave no sign He was rather
reticent regarding his affairs, keeping
his own counsel. Ho was born in Ohio,
March 14, 185G.
Sharp Fonml (luilty.
Tho jury In the case of the state
against Frank Sharp, tried In Cass
county, returned a verdict of guilty
of larceny ns charged, and recom

tence. Tho value of tho goods which
Sharp 1b accused of having stolen was
eBtl mated at $350. Sharp, who has
been out on bond, will havo to remain
in jail until the court sentences him.
Tho prisoner's wife, mother, sisters
and other relatives attended tho trial

mado known their disappointment was
very apparent. Thin case had been
tried In Lancaster and Sarpy counties,
but each time tho state failed to con

Ncls C. Hanson, a brother o4 Jogcn
Hansen, who was found dead In tho
HefMng Hand institute in Kansas City
with a bullet holo In his head, arrived
from Crookston, Minn., to take charge
of tho body. Hansen states that his
brother had for years been considered
of -unsound mind.' no believes that ho
committed suicide. No developments
have appeared to sustain the theory of
murder. Tho body will be taken to
MInncsota.whoro the dead man's widow
and ten children live, for burial.
Teacher Sued for Whipping-.
Mrs. Lou Stewart, teacher In tho
schools at Xcnla, Bourbon county, and

at Mapleton, Kan., haa been sued for
$1,000 damages by Louis Mylus, a well-to-do
farmer, who is one 'of tho pa

On the Co-Operative Flan.
A special train load of emigrants
from Dubolse, Neb., reached Emporia.
Tho company Is composed of twelve
families of Swedes, seventy persons In
all. A short time ago thoy purchased
3,000 ocrcB of good Lyon county farm
ing land from an Emporia real estate
agent This they intend to farm on a
co-operative plan. The train which
brought tho colony hero comprised bov
cntccn freight cars and ono passenger

Lightning Itod Sharper Are Actively at
Several of tho farmers of Pralrlo
View neighborhood, near Phllllpsburg,
Kan., have been caught for vnrlotia
amounts by lightning rod swindlers.
Agent number ouo enmo along, se
cured tho order and drove on; agent
two rodded the house; agent three got
tho note and drove along to tho home
of the next victim. After securing the
notes, they were sold ns Hoon as possi
ble to an "Innocent purchasor" whom
the company probably already had In
Ono of these notes became duo last
week and was sent to one of the banks
for collection. Tho bank In turn gave
It to nn attorney to present for pay
ment and the attorney, who is some
'thlng of a hustler as a collector, drove
'out to tho west part of tho county to
find the party whoso paper ho desired
to exchange for cash.
Ho found his man all right and ex
plained the nature of his business. At
first the mnkcr of tho noto professed
Ignorance of tho existence of Bitch n
piece of paper, finally asking permis
sion to see It. Of eotirso tho collector
went down In his overcoat pocket and
produced the note, which was genuine
all right, with the man's slgnaturo
Btlcklng out upon It In fair handwrit
ing. As Boon ns tho fellow got hold
of tho noto ho turned and ran away
from the collector, leaving him sitting
In tho buggy holding tho lines. He
hallowed at tho fleeing Individual, but
the possessor of tho valuable piece of
paper only ran the faster and waa put
ting as much alfalfa ground as posslblo
between himself nnd tho party who had
lately held the note.
Finally the attorney caught up with
the farmer. Tho man made an ex
planation Baying that ho thought the
nttorncy was the fourth ono of thoso
lightning rod sharpers, and ho did not
care about meeting any more of them.
Tho lawyer with some dlfllculty mado
himself understood. Of course tho noto
will have to be paid. It is said that
there aro several otner notes for largo
sums In the banks of this city which
will soon become due.
BARELY ESCAPES DEATH.
Timely Arrival of Undertaker Prevents

A startling revelation has Just come
to light In regard to Chas-a-nin-gah,
tho famous old Omaha Indian chief,
who died at his home on tho reserva

In tho last stages of tho old man's
sickness a medicine man or Indian doc
tor waa In attendance, and the chief
was pronounced dead, in the presenco
of Chas-a-nln-gah'8 family. An under
taker was sent for and he discovered
Indications of life. Tho undertaker
went to work upon the man and in a
short time ho revived.
The family was astonished and
looked upon lao feat as a miracle, and
believe the father and husband had
been called back to llfo by tho Great
Spirit for some holy cause unknown
to them. But for tho acuteness of Mr.
Morley, tho undertaker, Chas-a-nln-gah
might have been buried alive. Tho
resusticatlon was of no consequence,
however, for the old man lingered only
about four moro days.

ALMA HAS A GHOST.
lllnck (liirbcd Apparition Parades the
Street ut Night.
The peace of mlnu of the pcoplo of
Alma, Neb., has been rudely disturbed
during tho past threo weeks or moro
and nil because of r. ghost. Not the
customary white apparelled specter of
fiction and precedent, but a black
garbed apparition. The story Is
vouched for by half n dozen of tho
best men of tho place, men whoso
standing and Btipposrd freedom from
superstition would naturaly class them
among tho doubters. But they doubt
Tho hcrolno of tho talc Is n woman,
a ghost, who chooses to violate all su
pernatural precedents by apparelling
herself in black from head to foot.
This may sound like a piece of lift Ion,
but It isn't safe to take this attitude
when talking with nn Alma man. Al
most everybody believes (Irmly In tho
apparition because most everybody
has seen It. Some havo sought to
capturo it, but have failed dismally.
When It is pursued the ghost runs.
When its pursuer turns tall, ho be
comes In turn tho pursued. Several
havo played In both roles, and just nt
present tho ghost Is permitted to roam
unmolested, it has sought to harm no
ono or annoy any especial person. Its
favorlto pastime seems to be to dart
from Bomo dark alley or shadowy cor
ner and rush like the wind past Bomo
lone, belated pedestrian. At ten paces
or bo beyond him tho specter dlsap
pears, vanishes Into thin air. That Is
the psychological moment for the hair
to rise. It hasn't failed yet.
Several well known citizens vouch
for the truth of these tales.
Ono Han Killed nnd Fifteen Other
Wounded In Shooting Scrape.
In a riot at Fort Morgan, Alabama,
between soldiers stationed there.
Michael Kuchn, a discharged man,
whose home is in Milwaukee, was
killed and ten or fifteen others wero
wounded in tho shooting and cutting
which was goneral for a time. Kuehn
was very popular with the men of the
fort and thero was much indignation
and threats of violence against a man
named Stewart, who was arrested with
a blody knifo In his hand.
The fight began upon a sergeant
named Flnnlgan, his asallants being
"rookies," or nowiy enlisted men.
Kuehn attempted to protect Flnnlgan,
but presently threw up his hands and
exclaimed. "My-God! I am killed."
Ho died In a few minutes. Ho was
found to have received a knife wound
at the base of tho brain. Prompt ac
tion on the part of tho officers of tho
garrison prevented the lynching of
Kuehn's body was brought to Mobile
and will bo shipped home.
About fifty Boldlers were drinking
at a saloon called "Tho Blue Goose,"
on the outside of the reservation when
the fight started.
WILL SOON RETIRE

There is no longer any doubt that
Pension Commissioner Evans will,
within tho next few months, at tho
latest, sever his connection with the
pension bureau, to accept from tho
president a position which will bo a
substantial promotion, but which has
not yet been definitely selected. It Is
well known that Mr. Evans has the
entire confidence of the president and
the latter will not consider the ques
tion of his retirement until a position
entirely satisfactory to tho commis
sioner has been provided. No decision
has been reached concerning a suc
cessor to Mr. Evans, nor will any ac
tion bo taken until the president is
thoroughly convinced that ho has

sterling worth possessed by the present
commissioner in bo high a degree
