with a dainty four course breakfast.
The table, was beautifully decorated
lu pink and white carnations woven
with smilax. The bride is well known
in this city and loved by all who know
her. She is a talented and accomp
lished young lady, but, most of all,
she possesses that charm of disposition
which wins the hearts of all. On this
ter wedding morn, she looked very
pretty as she stood beside the man of
her choice, tastefully gowned in her
traveling suitof blue silk. The groom
is also well known to us, having
yrciwii to manhood in our midst and
been one of us until his removal to
Beatrice last year, where he has a
lucrative position. He was one of our
Toost promising young men and has a
liost of friends to wish for his success
and happiness in life. The happy cou
ple departed on the morning train for
their future home in Ileatrleo, show
ered with rice and congratulations
from their many friends who had gath
ered to see them depart on the jour
ney of life and express their regrets
that we should lose two such estima
ble young people from our midst.

I Deaths and Funerals.
Mrs. S. F. Spokcsfleld.
Sarah Prances Spokcsfleld, wife of
S. P. Spokcsfleld, and one of the old
est residents of Ued Cloud, died early
last Sunday morning from cancer,
with which she had been sutterlng for
years. Puneral services were held at
the family residence Sunday evening
at f o'clock, conducted by Rev. A. A.
Cressuian, pastor of the Congrega
tional church. The Eastern Star,
of which order Mrs. Spokeslield was
a member, performed their ritualistic
service for the dead. The remains
were taken to Hebron Monday morn
ing for burial.
Mrs. Spokcsfleld was born near Des
Moines, In., January 1, 1310, and was
married to S. P. Spokcsfleld in 1803.
She was an earnest Christian, having
united with the Christian church

remained a member of that church to
the time of her death. She is sur
vived by her husband and several

Frank Barker Will Have Insanity Hear
ing on June 25.
One more breathing spell for Prank
Marker, says the Star. The man who
killed his brother as he slept, and the
wife beside him, condemned to die on
the gallows next Saturday, was on
Tuesday morning allowed a stay of
execution pending the sitting of a jury
to determine his sanity, which Judge
Holmes of the Lancaster county dis
trict court has ordered for June -'5.
It wns.on the application of Judge P.
G. Hamer of Kearney that the death
sentence was pushed ahead ten days.
In a lengthy affidavit the judge de
clared to the court that Marker is in
sane, a degenerate, of mind erratic
and likely at any moment to break
forth into uncontrollable fury. Such
a fury came on him when he killed
Attorney General Thompson at the
hearing contested the request of Mar
ker's attorney. He declared that Judge
Hamer has had two years in which to
ask for a jury to try Marker's sanity.
He has not used his opportunity, and
now at the eleventh hour came in to
take advantage of the law to secure
another respite for the murderer.
"It is the law's delay's that drive
law-loving people to violence," said
Mr. Thompson to Judge Holmes. "The
time has come when the people have a
right to know once for all how the
men who kill are to be treated and if
human life is to be safe."
Judge Holmes granted the applica
tion for the stay and set the hearing
for June 2.".
After the court order had been en
tered, Judge Hamer said, when asked
what his will was in regard to liar
"I think that Marker can stay there
and make brooms the rest of his life.
He is insane, and if he had not been
he would never have killed his brother.
Under the constant guard maintained
at the prison, he will be safe from
"Then you do not want him turned
Judge Hamer looked astonished at
such a question.
"Why, I would not dare to go to
sleep in his presence if he had any
thing he could kill me with."
Judge Hamer's application for the
stay of execution was accompanied by
affidavits from penitentiary guards,
physicians and prison contractors, and
all who have had an opportunity to
watch the actions of the condemned

PIONEER COURT INCIDENTS.
Free and Easy Manners In Early Illi
Most of the early Illinois court
houses were log built, but In Home dis
tricts, says the author of "Lincoln, the
Lawyer," the sessions were held In the
barrooms of taverns, and the absence
of nil formality in the proceedings Is
best Illustrated by the fact that In the
circuit court of Washington county,
held by Judge John Reynolds, the sher
iff usually heralded tils honor by sing
ing out, "Come In, boys! Our John Is
it-gotu to hold courtl" to which cordial
Invitation those having business with
the law responded.
Another sheriff In Union county made
laudable efforts to meet the require
ments of the occasion by shouting out
this singular announcement: "Oh, yes!
Oh; yes! Oh, yes! The honorable Judge
Is now opened 1"
In one case a judge who desired to
display his learning Instructed the Jury
very fully, laying down the law with
authority, but thu Jurors, after delib
erating some hours, found themselves
unable to agree. Finally the foreman
rose and nsked for additional Instruc
tions. "Judge, this 'ere Is the difficulty," he
explained. "The Jury want to know If
that thar what you told us was r'al'y
the law, or on'y Jlst your notion."
Mark Twain on His Own Reputation
I am used to having my statement
discounted. My mother began It before
I was seven years old. Yet all through
my life my facts have had a substra
tum of truth, and therefore they were
not without pieclousness. Any person
who Is familiar with me knows how to
strike my average and therefore knows
how to get at the jewel of any fact of
mine and dig It out of Its blue clay
matrix. My mother knew that art.
When I was seven or eight or ten or
twelve years old along there a neigh
bor said to her:
"Do you ever bellevo anything that
that boy Bays?"
My mother said:
"He Is the wcllspring of truth, hut
you can't bring up the whole well with
one bucket." And she added: "I know
his average, therefore ho never de
ceives me. I discount him 30 per cent
for embroidery, and what Is left Is
perfect and priceless truth without a
flaw In It anywhere." Mark Twain'?

Mi.adkn, Nkii., June 10.
Editor Chief: When Webster county
is so poor that it can not build u court
housv, and has to store the county
records any old place, how can it have
money to give to the town of Mladen,
located in a corner of the county, to
have a fair that does no one any good
but the town of Bladen and a few
farmers around the town?
The above inquiry was sent in by a
well known resident of the north part
of the county. We interviewed one of
the county board on the subject this
morning, and he informed us that it
was the opinion of the board that the
Illaden fair was a worthy enterprise
and needed the money. Section 3010
of Cobbey's annotated statutes of
Nebraska gives the county commis
sioners authority to make an appro
priation of this character equal to 3
cents for each inhabitant, and the
commissioners believed that, as the
Illaden fair was a new enterprise, it
would be no more than right to help
it along. Of course, the commission
ers could have refused the request for
aid, but as that would probably have
meant the death of the only agricult
ural exhibit held in this county they
wisely appropriated the money. If
the fair is as well patronized tills year
as it was last, the association will pro
bably be able to get along without
county aid in the future. And we will
undoubtedly get our new court house
