A Sad Death.
In the burning of John Fitzgerald ,
Tuesday evening , McCook has her second
loss of life in a fire. About half past
seven o'clock the residence of Edward
Fitzgerald of South McCook was discov
ered to be on fire , but by the time help
arrived from the immediate neighbors
even it was impossible to enter the build
ing , which became a mass of flames in a
twinkling and was quickly reduced to
ashes together with practically the en
tire contents. The stable which stood
just east of the house was also burned.
Mr. Fitzgerald was away from the
town on business ac the farm near Leba
non , and Mrs. Fitzgerald and the chil
dren were at her sister's , Mrs. Peter
Carty's , near by , so no one was in the
house but the aged grandfather , who was
very old and infirm , and who had been
ailing for some time to the point of help
lessness. A lamp had been lighted for
him ; but whether it exploded or was in
some way overturned will never be
known : Only the sad and deplorable fact
that the old man was a victim of the
cruel flames. The very meager remains
were recovered at about midnight and
taken to Pade's undertaking establish
ment for preparation for burial.
The house and contents were insured
for $1,000.
In addition to the loss of house and
furniture , Mr. Fitzgerald had about $100
in cash , ( derived from a recent sale of
wheat , ) which was also consumed.
The deceased's age is not definitely
known , but he is supposed to have been
in the nineties. The funeral was held in
St. Patrick's church at three o'clock on
Thursday ' afternoon , services being con
ducted by Rev. J.W. Hickey , after which
the remains were interred in Calvary
[ John Fitzgerald was a native of
the County Galway , Ireland , and was
past 90 years of age at the time of his
tragic death. At the age of 25 years he
was united in marriage with Catherine
Gibbons of Detroit , Michigan. Of this
union twelve children were born , ten of
them are living at this time. But two
live in this country , Mr. Edward Fitz
gerald and Mrs. James Farrell of our
city , Canada being the home of the re
mainder of the family. ]
The bereaved ones have the deep sym
pathy of all , especially in view of the
sad and tragic circumstances of the death.

Lincoln Journal reporter the secretar } '
among other things said : • 'Well I did
not get to see a great deal of this state.
At McCook I was met by an editor who
recognized me. I thought I would slip
through without being discovered , but it
was not to be so. I learned from him
that the corn in that section was slightly
damaged. The section of the state
thioygh which we passed , however , ap
pears , to look well and from the activity
manifested I should judge that it is a
good year for farmers" .

brigade band of McCook , serenaded the
World-Herald , yesterday afternoon , be
fore returning home. The playing of the
band in the grand stand at the state fair
races and during the Ak-Sar-Ben parades
and coronation ball confirmed the good
impression formed of it during the pre
vious state fairs and carnivals. It has
become familiar to and very popular
with Omaha people , so much so that it
is no longer looked upon as a staanger
to the city. Omaha World-Herald.
Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock , Con

While a large acreage of small grain
will doubtless be sown in Red Willow ,
this fall and next spring , our farmers
should not lose sight of the necessity
and desirability of planting a diversity
of crops. Don't put all your eggs in one
