Runaways Smash a Jtuggy.
A work team belonging to Charley
Martin ran away Monday afternoon
and crashed into a buggy belonging
to Water Commlfasioner McBurnie ,
reducing the vehicle to kindling woo
In less time than it takes to tell.
Fortunately "Mac" was slsewhere
when the accident occurred or he
might have been Included In the
general smashup. The Martin team
which is employed by the Electric
Light Company took fright at some
thing near the depot while the driv
er was attending to something else
and shot across town at "express
train" speed. When1 the heavy wag
on struok the light buggy and crump
led it up like card board , theteam
of runaways never faltered , but kept
on until they reached Mr. Martin's
stables where they stopped of their
own accord. This Is the same team
rv by the way , that nearly caused the
death of Earl Cooper soveralweeks
ago , by running into him while he
was seated on a mowing machine in
the middle of the street. Commlssi
er McBurnie says although there are
no wheels to his buggy to speak of
and the body is badly fractured both
externally and internally , still he
thinks the seat might be utilized for
something If only some rcparls were
put on it.
Crnndma Cosiior passes nwny.
.Tas. II. Cosnor of Merna , Minn. ,
formerly of Broken Bow , returned
here last week owing to the serious
illness of his mother who resldts
at Morna , Neb.
He was in the city last Friday
and stated that his mother required
carefull attention both day and night
owing to her advanced age.
A letter from him yesterday stated
his mother died Tuesday at 2.30 p.m
and the funeral services would beheld
hold at 2.30 yesterday.
Grandma Cosncr with her husband
was among the early settlers of the
vicinity of Merna and enjoyed the
high esteem and respect of all who
knew her. Her husband proceeded
her to the better land a few y eas
ago , both haAlng been active and

The plollmlnary hearing of John
Clirlstcrphcrson , the young drug
clerk at Calloway , who was charged
with manslaughter In connection
with the death of Mrs. Etta MOSCH
several \vooks ago , was commenced
before County Judge Holcomb Tues
day moinlng of this week. The
hearing lasted nearly two days and
attracted more than the usual a-
inount of attention , as the court
room was crowded during the whole
time. Ex-Governor Ilolcomb and
County Attorney Gadd conducted th
prosecution , while udge.T Homer
Sullivan and attorney Mlllard ap
peared for the defense. Dr. Davis ,
of Calloway was put on the stand
and testified as to the condition of
Mrs. Moses when he was called In
attendance. Sam Sterner , a brother
of Mrs. Moses , testified that he had
gone to the' drug store and asked
for cream of tartar for Ills sister ,
that Chirstorpherscn a lone In
the store at the time , gave him what
subsequently proved to bo tartar
emetic , and that his sister received
the poison under the Impression It
was cream oftartar. Sterner said
he had never heard of tartar emetic
before Ills sister was taken ill.
Charles Sterner , anothe brother ,
at whose house Mrs Moses was stay
ing at the time of her death , tset-
ifled what happened at the house
after the poibon had been taken.
The testimony cf D. E. Moseshus
band of the dead woman , was much
the same as that of Charles Stonier.
The legal arguments were heard on
Wcdnorday and consumed the best
part of the day. The prosecution
contended that the defendant was
in the act of wrong doing when he
sold an unlabeled drug that later
caused the death of a human being
and asked that he be bound over to
the district court and stand trial for
manslaughter. Judge Ilolcomb in
passing upcn the case said he was
convinced that the affair was a most
deplorable accident with no criminal
Intent on the part of the defendant.
He accordingly gavn Chrlstorpherson
the benefit of any doubt that might
exist and dnscharged tlto young man
Judge Kills Chickens.
County Judge Holcomb , Will

miles. For two days the slaught

the Judge returned ast Tuesday
morning he was oaded down with
chickens , ducks and one solitary
crane. He said he felt sorry for
the crane because it looked so lone
ly among all those chickens.

We call attention this week to
our supplement containing sketches

want our readers to give special at
tention to the page about Mr. Aid-
rich. As candidate for governor
the "Dahlmanite" party have accus
ed him of being an unfit man and
laid up to his door about all the
mean things that a man Is capable
i dring In his life time. These In-

ers , ministers and leading citizens
ol' Mr. Aldrich's home town complct

conclusively that Mr. Aldrlch is a
typical representative of Nebraska's
highest and best citizenship.
