Litt/s Debbie Hackman Dead.
In the loss of little Debbie Hackman
whose severe illnens was announced in
the Times two weeks since , the bereav
ed parents have the sympathy of the
entire city. Her death , after only a
week's illness of membraneous croup ,
occurred at 11 o'clock Monday night at
the homo of her parents , Mr. and Mrs.
Albert A Haokman , on Branchport
avenue. Debbie was a general favorite
with all who knew her sweet and win
some disposition. Though but six years
of age she had a wide circle of friends.
Probably her closet companion anc
playmate was Hazel Edwards , whose
death was mentioned in last week's
Times. Both these little ones were
classmates at St. Luke's Sunday schoo !
and were constant companions. Debbie
was taken with a severe cold on the
day Hazel died ( New Year's ) and never
recovered. Every effort was put forth
to ease the little one's suffering on
Monday , but it was of no use. By thia
death the Sunday school has lost two
bright pupils already this year. Last
year but one death occurred in the
whole school , which numbers nearly
The funeral riteo will be conducted at
the house to-morrow ( Thursday ) after

Reed , of St Luke's church , assisted by
the Rev. E. D. Tom kins , of St. James'
church , will officiate. Long Branch
( N. J. ) Times.
A Practical Suggestion.
The Hastings Independent thinks
that when the farmers of Nebraska
"cure their own meat and quit selling
their hogs for 3 or 4 cents a pound , and
buying their hams and shoulders back
at 12 and 15 cents , there will be better
times in this state. " Why this is not
done , says the Kearney Era , is easily
explained. A majority of Nebraska
farmers know absolutely nothing about
curing meat. They do not realize their
loss by not slaughtering the hogs and
curing the meat. An outlay of $50
will give any farmer conveniences for
curing the flesh of 50 hogs , 250 pounds
each. If these were sold to hog deal
ers at 3 cents a pound the farmer re
ceives $375 for them. If they were
killed and cured by the farmers and
sold at the average price of 12 cents a
pound , $1,000 would be the amount re
ceived , over and above the $50 outlay
made for curing , and one-third off from
gross weight for loss in killing. Sup
pose that only 10 cents a pound was
received for the cured meat , even then
the farmer would be the gainer. Can
be clear $400 any easier ? Can he af
ford to raise cheap corn for market at
10 cents a bushel , when he can fatten
20 hogs with 500 bushels , and cure the
meat and sell it at 10 cents a pound ?
We take satisfaction in correcting
the erroneous impression prevailing to
the fact that The Famous Clothing Co.
lad gone out of business. They have
retired from the clothing business only ,
and will in future make a specialty of
Ine furnishings for men and boys , and
will carry a full stock of hats and caps.
Orders for clothing will be taken at the
very lowest prices , however.
