Don't Like Nlss Gather's Story.
Tho Nebraska Stato Journal of last
Saturday contains tho following sharp
criticism of a story by Miss Willu
Cuthor, daughter of Mr. and Mrs C.
F. Cathor of this city. At tho tlmo of
writing this article the March number
of Everybody's magazine had not beou
rccelvod here, and we are unublo to
state on what grounds tho Stato
Journal tukes excoptious to Miss
Cathor's production:
'Miss Willa Cather has u story on
titled "The Wuguor Matineo" in tho
March number of Everybody's Maga

omotious of nn ugod lady, ouce a
pianist nnd teacher in tho New Eug
lund conservatory, who goes back to

years on a "claim" In Rod Willow
county, Nob. Miss Cathor, liko most
of tho writers who go out from the
wost, seems to tako ploustfro in using
tho forbidding material furnished by
the struggles of tho pioneers, and does
not go to tho trouble- to oven hint ut
tho comfort und wealth that huvo fol
lowed tho toil of theso early ompiro
buildors. Aftor reading tho nrticlo
tho stranger to this stato will asso
ciate Nobraskn with tho aunt's

houso, naked as a tower, with woathor
curled boards; tho crook backed ash
seodliugs, whoio tho dish cloths hung
to dry, the gaunt moulting turkeys
picking up refuso about the kitchen
door." All through tho tnlo Miss
Cuthor piles on her colors with brutal
liberality, nnd her pieturo reminds ono
of durkost Russia. Mrs. Pouttio never
did anything moro dismal and hopoless
und forlorn than Miss Cathor's latest
"Interpretation" of life in Red Willow

Drake, who lives four or five miles
southeast of Red Cloud, In Garfield
township. On Monday Drake came to
Red Cloud and swore out a warrant
for tho unusl of his biothor-lii-luw,
.leir Bouuchamp, charging him with
having set lire to tlie hay. Drake and
Beauchamp have not been on friendly
terms for u long time, and it is said
that Beauchamp was lustrumeutel in
prosecuting Drake on a statutory
charge hovoral years ago. The breach
in the family relations was never
thoroughly healed, and it is reported
that recently tho brothers-in-law had
had trouble over money matters.
Wlion Drake's hay was destroyed by
11 ro during the night ho immediately
suspioioned his brother-in-law, Beau
chump, of having boon concerned in its
destruction. It is claimed that tracks
wero found leading from Beuuchump's
place, which is just across tho river
bridgo south of Red Cloud to tho homo
of Goorgo Drake, and on this evidence
a warrant was sworn out for Bonn
champ's arrest. Sheriff McArthur
