Thoa. Adams , Jr. , the oldest con
of TboB. Adorns , living two mileK
cant of the city , came down from
Wyoming Saturday morning in a
very precarious condition , and
could only be moved from the train
by the use of a stretcher. He was
at work in a ooal mine in Wyom
ing , when the mine caved in upon
him , mashed his hips , completely
paralyzing his lower limbs. Dr.
Ponnington is treating him.
Pearl Munk was around Tuesday
morning setting up the cigars , and
of course everybody thought that
Pearl's generosity was the occasion
of the arrival of another heir at the
Munk home , and Pearl encouraged
the suspicion by acknowledging it
a boy ; but it finally developed that
it was a valuable box received by
him aa a present from the Royal
Highlanders headquarters for his
untiring interest and work for the
upbuilding of the order in this oity.
It was a worthy recognition of his
valuable services duly deserved.
Theodore Nelson , the boy of Buf
falo county , who was arrested a
shoit time ago on the charge of
having killed his father , confessed
before thd coroner's inquest and a
verdict was rendered accordingly.
The murder was committed on the
16th of November , but the body of
the missing man was not found
until about two weoka ago , The
cruelty of the father , towards the
murderer and his younger brother
is the excuse for the heinous crime.
The ease will probably be tr'ed at
the next session of the district
court in Buffalo county.

J. J. Stanford and Brad Burlin ,
of Morna , who were summoned to
appear before the U. S. sunromo
court as witnesses against Wm.
Miller , who attempted to rob the

October , returned from Omaha on
Thursday of last week. Millir
confessed to the charge of having
attempted to rob the Morna office ,
and was then tried and convicted
of robbing the post office at Faro-
ham. Ho was sentenced to five
years in the penitentiary , Messrs ,
Stanford , Berlin and Nine MoCom-
as , who captured Miller at Morn a ,
will be given the reward , but the
reward for the conviction of the

the evidence for bia conviction in
that case ,
Prom reports it seems that the
Loup bridge proposition has not
yet been settled. The trouble had
been an attempt to move one of the
bridges , either at Wescott or Long-

do would bo for tbo board to appro

a new bridge and let the old ones
remain. They could not bo moved

avenue , opposite this office , is turn
ing out some of as fine work for
hia patrons as can bo made any
where. The cemeteries in the large
cities like Chicago and Now York
do not snow work superior to the
work he is doing. He is an artist
in bis line , and few equal him. IIu
is not only a ukillod workman from
long experience at his trade , but is
a natural artist. Ho does bis work
without patterns. lie is a free hand
sculptor and his work is Hymotriual
and artistically designed. Ho baa
just completed a monument for
Roy Nansol , of Callaway , which is
now on exhibition in his shop , that
is a beauty and speaks in stronger

in words. Those who are interest
ed in the beautiful should call and
see his work , whether you desire to
have any work done or not ; you
can not fail in being delighted. Mr.
Glaze has bad an experience of
forty years as a sculptor , and is up-
to-date in designs and workman
ship , He has two sons associated
with him in the business , and they
are prepared to turn out firsi.-olasi
work on short notice. We be

A Creamery Very Near.
W. W. ProsBoy , ngont of the Bc-
atrioo Creamery Co. , was a friend
ly caller Monday. Wo learn from
him that the work of scouring a
separating station for this place
now only lacks throe subscribers of
the required number to secure the
creamery. Mr. Prowey is now re
siding at Lincoln , but was ono of
the early settlers of Ouster county ,
and for a number of years lived on
his homestead near Oconto , in the
Wood liivor valley. lie IB very
sanguine that the creameries will
provo a great thing for the farmers
of Ouster county , and will provo a
source of revouuo in time that
drouth nor bailwill materially dis
turb. At Mcrua , Oallaway , Aualoy
and Arcadia , ho informs us there
are parties who are patronising the
separator stations with tplendid
results , and are lifchly pleased with
thn treatment received by the agents
of these places lie says , of course ,
as is the case in all other lines of
business , there are those who com
plain , find fault with the company
and charge that they did not get
full credit for the cream they de >
liver. The same jcomplaintH are
always made against those who buy
wheat , hogs and cattle by certain
parties , yet there are those who
continue to patronize the creamery
stations , and are making money by
so doing. Among those given as
roforonoos and who are pleased with
the treatment as well as the profits
derived from the business , are such
men as W. U. Hoedor , Reuben
Gordon , J. 0. Pollard , O.L. Perry ,
Sep Henna and E. Ridenour , of
MoreS ; , Robt. Fox , Ben Morris ,
Guy Taorn , Bert Ephlen , 8. B. Mo-
Kinty , John Molninoh and Tom
Williams , of Antiloy. He informs
us that the farmer realizes about

nishod the creamery as from batter
making. The creamery company
guarantees tq lease the plant and
run it for ton years and pay a divi
dend to the stock holders upon
their investment. In case parties
desire , the company will furnish
them paws to milk on deforced pay
ments , which enables a poor man
to start in the business when ho is
not able to help himself. The sta
tion at this place will be an im
provement over former ones , in the
matter of each patron getting his
share of the skimmed milk. It is
so arranged that no ono can draw
out more milk than ho puts in , and
the dissatisfaction existing hereto
fore in that particular will be en
tirely obviated. It is to bo hoped
for the good of the town and the
farmers of this vicinity that the
other three stockholders may be se
