April 27, 1819. She was married to

lost her hnsband about eight years

since which time she has lived alter
nately in Edgar and Red Cloud. The

Rev. Wm. Hauptmann conducting the
Graham Net a Wife Deaerter.
i.asi wcok j iik uiiiEF published nn
article stating that a warrant had been
issuod for the arrest of Ed Graham of
this city on thechargo of wifo deser
tion, in which it was statod that Gra
ham had deserted bis wifo here. The
information camt from a source which
wo considered rollable, and no further
investigation of tho matter was mado.
It appears, however, that thoro was
another sido to tbo story; nnd that an
injustice was done Mr. Graham, which
was wholly unintentional on our part.
From tbo facts as told to us by a near
relativo of Mr. Graham, it appears
that he is tho doserted party, and not
his wifo. Graham is a stopson of C. E.
Harington of this city and was married
to a Miss Williams at Tecumseh.
They afterward removed hero and at
tho time of their separation wero living
with Mr. and Mrs. Harrington.
About two months ago Mrs. Graham
took It into her head to go and live
with her folks in South DakotH, despito
tbo protests of her husband. As stated
by our informaut, she packed up mid
wont to llvo with her parents, and
after ai riving thero wroto letters to
parties in Red ClouJ stating that she
was having a good timo and that shu
would never hgain llvo with Graham,
Slio kept writing to Graham for mono v,
however, nnd upon his refusal to send
It tolior ho decided to romo back to
Red Cloud, evidently with tho Intui
tion of making trouble for her husband.
She was accompanied by her brother,
Arthur Williams. Whou they nrrlved
hero they made an effort to got hold of
some household furniture s ored at the
Harrington homo which Mrs. (5 1 ah a m
claimed belonged to her. Mr. Harr
ington refused to turn over tho goods,
claim ing that he himself had paid for
Hum and would hold them until he got
tho money out of them.
Graham had been in tho employ ot
his stepfather until two weeks a&n,
when ho got a job husking corn over
in Kansas. When ho loft towu ho re
quested his ft lends to Inform, him if
his wifo returned to Red Cloud, ns he
thought it probablo that she would ho
accompanied by one cr morn of her
brothers, or her fnth'r, nil of whom
had threatened to kill Graham on tight,
and it was for this reason that Graham
did not want to return to Red Cloud,
and not from any fear of prosecution
on tlio chaigo of wifo desertion.
Graham incurred tho enmity of his
wife's rolntivoB wMlo thoy wore resi
dents of Nomaha county. From all In
formation obtained, It seems that tho
Williams family nru a bid lot, nnd
Graham refused to join them in their
cussedness. Tho parting ot tho ways
came when tho Williams boys planned
to rob someono in Nemaha county nnd
Graham gavo them away. Trouble
followed, and tho nffair ondod in tho
stabbing of n man in tho buck. The
Williamses lied, nnd it issald thoro is
still a roward of $500 hanging over
their heads. It is claimed bv tho
friends of Graham that Arthur Wil
liams, who accompanied his sister to
this city, was implicated in the stab
bing afluir in Nemaha county and that
ho was hore in dlsgulso.
Mrs. Graham and hor brother loft
Rod Cloud soon after the Issuing of
warrant for Graham's arrest nnd their
present whereabouts are unknown.
Arthur Williams asked Marshal Kinsel
to occompany him to the dopot the
night he left, claiming that he feared
Graham would be at the depot and
that there would bo trouble.
HMver Divorce Decision Kevemi.
The divorce secured by John S.
Hoover of Blue Hill from his wife,
Va'oncla Hoover, has been set asfde by
tho supreme court. Mrs. Hoover was

Hoover got tired of it, and Mrs.
Hoover went to Omaha to llvo with her

her attorneys started from Omaha in
order to be in Red Cloud in attuudanco

Inos to consult another attorney, and a
railway accident delayed their arrival
in Bed Cloud until after the divorce
had been gracted. Mrs. Hoover's at

postponed until they could reach the
city, but the district judge refused tho
request and granted the divorce. Tlio

court erred in nut postponing the trial
until the arrival of the defendant to

To Whom It May Concern:
The undersipned has been a student
with tbo International Schools of
Scranton, Pa., for some time, enrolling
about a year ago, and, although study
ing in my spare moments, have made
very satisfactory progress in the
course. 1 he schools are very thorough
in their instruction. The methods
used by the schools should certainly
commend them to aoyone seeking pro
fitable employment for spare hours.
In many respects, I deem the schools
superior to the regular polyteohnic
schools and well worth the considera
tion of anyone desiring to better their
