first news of his death, Hashed by
wiieless and i clayed by cable from

time he was shot in the neck and nl- I
most done to death by au Insane dls- I
charged employe of the city In August,
11110. They would not declare their
belief that the wound inflicted by tho

thereby to n very great extent.

"Tho Nebraska state fair will pay
out," declared Secretary Mellor of tho
stato agricultural board after officially
reviewing the receipt and expense nc
count of the big exhibition. "We have
made few permanent Improvements
during the year nnd although our
actual expense list was Just us largo
as ever, we believe that we will not
