L. E. Wilson , of the firm of Wil
son & Drake , one of the largest dry
goods houses in Central Nebraska ,
informs us that their trade has been
unusually good this season , and such
as to warrant them in laying in the
largest stock of goods for the fall
trade they have for years. As
Messrs. Wilson & Drake are con
servative and successful business
men , and fell for cash only , wo re
gard this as a most flattering testi
mony in favor of the substantial
condition of the citizens and coun
try tributary to Broken Bow. As
the members of the firm are demo
crats , it cannot well be claimed that
Mr. Wilson , in making the state
ment , colored it for political effect.
The almost daily receipt of goods ,
and an inspection of new goods
received , will verify the statement
Hon. M W. Howard , of Alabama ,
was greeted with a fair sized audi

Silas Thompson , of Upton , was a
friendly caller Saturday. From him
wo learn that ho and his wife , with
a man by thu immo of Johnson ,
were the parties that discovered
George Zimmoror and Mr. Thomas
in the watoi hole where they were
drowned near his place lait Thurs
day , lie tays it wna about eix
o'clock p. m. when they found the
team and buggy anil Thomas. From
the best information at hand , they
had apparently boon iu the water
for four hours , as they loft Judge
Boblits about 1 o'clock. The ro-
oont rains had was'icd a hole about
twelve foot deep where the road
formerly crossed , and where they
drove in the banks wore porpondicu-
ar. The buggy had evidently
ippod ever as it wont into the
vater , and carried the men under
ho water witb it. The lop of the
buggy was up. Thomas was lying
on one of the horses nocks , with his
eel on the nook yoke , his head and
upper half of his body being undoc
ho water. The body of George
immcrer was found where the
juggy and horses were taken from.
Joth parlies had bruises on their
aces , and had boon blooding , which
sustains the iheory that in the up-
sotllng of the buggy they became
tangled up with the horses , and
wire Lurt so as to pievcnt their
isoapo by swimming out. Q o.
unuiorer was a son of Ford Zim-
noror , who formerly lived on the
Loup , near whom the men were
Irownod. The bodfos were taken
to Lexington the same night they
