ANOTHER STAY FOR BARKER,
Insanity Trial in District Court
Frank Barker, the Webster county
murderer, whose reprieve frcm execu
tion for the crime of which he was
convicted expired last Satirday, and
who was to have been tried before a
jury in the court of District J udgc E.
J'. Holmes next Tuesday on his alleged
Insanity, was yesterday afternoon
granted another lease of life. On mo-
lion of his counsel, F, G. Ilamer of
Kearney, Marker was granted a con
tinuance of two weeks, the date for
the trial being set for July 8. The
order for continuance was signed by
Judge Holmes shortly before 5 o'clock
over the vigorously presented object
Ions of the attorney general, voiced by
his assistant, Grant Martin.
The reasons presented for the con
tinuance were submitted to the court
in an affidavit by Judge Ilamer. For
the most part, the allegations set out
that on account of the practice of coun
sel, it will be Impossible for him to
present his case at the time originally
set for the hearing in such manner as
will be fair to his client. Duties in
connectionwith the trial of other al
leged murderers he says will call him
to the western part of the state with
in a few days. In addition to these
facts he declares that the evidence he
wishes to present to the jury to show
the lnsanltyof Barkcr,will necessitate
a trip by him to Red Cloud and other
portions of Webster county, and that
he ought to devote at least ten days
to his preparation of the case before
having to present it to the jury. State
Red Cloud 9. Guide Rock 5.
The Red Cloud base ball team went
down to Guide Rock Wednesday and
trimmed the Guide Rock aggregation
to the tune of 0 to 5. Cloyd dimming
did the umpiring, and he received
more than his share of the roasting.
County Clerk Lee De Tour kept track
of the runs, but the hits were so num
erous that he had to give up trying to
count them. The Red Cloud boys
outhatted the Guide Rock push, and
out-fielded them, playing a fast game
with the exception of the third and
last innings. Don Bayllss, who played
at short for Guide Rock, is the only
real ball player with that aggrega
tion. The way he swatted the ball was
ji caution to "Doc" Nelson, who was
doing the twirling for Red Cloud. The
Guide Rock boys do not know how to
take defeat gracefully. Aside from
the roasts which the umpire got, he
was also handed some clods by the
the hoodlum ulement. The e ditor of
this paper, in company with Boyd
Smith and Cloyd Cummings, drove in
from the grounds and when about half
way to town a gang of hoodlums
along the road opuned up with clods,
all of the occupants of the buggy re
ceiving "bumps" from kids. Such a
thing could not have happened in Red

the work done for the teachers by

S. M. Holllday, manager of the sum
mer Chautauqua, has been In Red
Cloud for the past week getting out
abvertislng matter and making other
necessary arrangements for the big
series of entertainments. People
generally do not realize the magnitude.
of the undertaking. Some imagine
that a Chautauqua assembly Is like a
street fair with a lot of "Cheap John1'
attractions accompanied by street
fakirs and the like.
The assembly to be held In Red
Cloud beginning July fit) and contin
uing to August 7 will give two pro
grams daily of as refined entertain
ment as you will see or hear at any
of the larger Chautauquas. The pro
grams include lectures by some of the
most noted lecturers in the United
States, such as Nat hrigham, Gear
hart, Senator Fred T. Dubois of Idaho,
Lorenzo Zwlckcy, Rev. Sam Small
and others of epual talent. There
will be splendid concerts by vocalists
of renown, and the famous ICiltles
band will also give two entertain
ments, which alone will be worth the
price of a season ticket for the entire
course. '1 lie Lltizens Concert Hand of

The people have become tired of
street fairs, with their attendant
games of graft, and the Chautauqua
will give them something of real
merit upon which to spend their spare
change. We would advise everyone
A 2burner Gasoline Stove

high as $36.00
who has not already done so to pur
chase a ticket for the entire series of
twenty entertainments, and in tills
way they will save considerable
money. It is almost certain that if
you attend one entertainment you
will want to attend all. A season
ticket costs but $!.', or an average of
10 cents per entertainment. If you do
not attend more than four entertain
ments you will have your money's
worth, with the privilege of attending
sixteen more entertainments If you feel
