| After a Very Brief Illness.
B Mrs. Sidney Dodge , of Grant precinct ,
fl died on last Saturday , of pneumonia ,
H after an illness of less than two days , so
H acute was the attack. The funeral scr-
H > - \ vices were held at the Pleasant Prairie
H < J school-house , on Sunday afternoon , Rev.
m t White conducting the services , before a
B I large gathering of neighbors and friends
M of that section of the county. Burial
H was made in the Pleasant Prairie ceme-
H tery. The deceased was a native of Penn-
H sylvanm , born there in July of 1835.
1 Moving to Ohio with the family , she was
B in 1862 married to Sidney Dodge. They
B moved to Red Willow county in 1882.
H Her husband and two sons , Joseph E.
B and Arthur S. , mourn her decease.
H [ Harrietts ELy , wife of Sidney
B Dodge , was born in Cumberland county ,
H Pennsylvania , July 1st , 1835. When a
B girl , she with her parents moved to Ohio ,
B where , on Jan. 1st. 1862 , she was married
B to her now bereaved husband. In 1882
B they came to Red Willow county , Ne-
H braska , and settled on a homestead 12
fl miles south of McCook , where she , on
H the 26th day of February , 1898 , in the
fl H triumph of a living faith , passed to her
B reward. Her sickness ( acute pleuro-
P H pneumonia ) was of short duration , being
H ! slc on'y 45 hours. Mrs. Dodge was a
_ _ _ H § ' > noble woman , domestic in her habits
B and affectionate in her nature. Her
B home was her world. Her disposition
H was amiable , her bright face beaming
H [ with purity , cheerfulness , and love.
H None knew her but to admire her. Death
| H found her ready for her departure. A
H H short time before she was stricken with
H [ disease she said to her husband she would
H1 not stay with him long , and gave direc-
B B B tions as to her funeral , selecting the
H • hymns she desired sung. On account of
B E ) the absence of the writer from home , the
Pfl funeral services were conducted by Rev.
H I White of the U. B. church. The very
B , large concourse of people attending evi-
B B deuced the esteem in which she was held
B H i in the community in which she had lived
B E / so long , of which she was a pioneer , and
fl the character of which she had so largely
T _ K molded. Of Sister Dodge it can be truly
H B said , " Blessed are the dead who die in
H B the Lord. " Her kind words and work
H k of love will surely follow her. A husH -
H II band and two sous remain to mourn the
H M loss , yet to rejoice in the memory of the
H m life a wife and mother lived. H. H. B. ]
B M Filings and Releases tor February.
B K The filings and releases of mortgages
Hi [ M A of all kinds during the month of Febru-
H u ary were as follows :
H I' ' Farm filings , $9,946.56 ; releases , $15 , -
849.20. City filings , $2,105.00 ; releases ,
H ki $7,125.00. Chattel filings , $34,453.02 ; re-
_ JK leases , $25,961.15.
Km y We are informed that if more care and
H ! promptness were taken in the matter of
H filing releases , the record would look
B uniformly better. For instance , on one
B , day of the past month 62 releases were
BL filed. There is much carelessness in this
Bny matter , many mortgages that have been
B % long satisfied still showing on the record
V. Ij as being unpaid.
H f x An Afflicted Family.
B B BB'
The family of Benjamin Baker , who
B ' lives a few miles east of the city , has
L been seriously afflicted for the past week
B or two with a malignant form of diph-
B theria , Mrs. Baker and five members of

B ease. We are happy to be able to report
_ _ _ _ pl that all are now recovering , and unless
F something unexpected arises , will be able

Five New Applications.
The attendance was large at the meet

evening. There were five applications

ter the disposal of the usual business , a
brief program was rendered by the chil
dren of the South McCook school , under
Miss Nora Stroud , who gave a very in
teresting repetition of the "Klond3'ke"

taiument with success. A short social 1
season ended a pleasant session.

A Terrible Death.
Last Friday morning , Miss Minnie
Wilson , teacher of the Prairie Garden
school near Quick postoffice in Frontier
county , was thrown from a cart while on
her way to school and was dragged to
death by the runaway horse. Her board
ing place was the home of Charles Wal
lace , about two miles from the school ,
and a young son of Mr. Wallace started
with her to school. The horse is said to
be somewhat wild and soon started to
run away , the boy jumping before the
animal had gained much headway and
escaping uninjured. At the school-house
the frightened animal dashed down the
side ' of a steep-walled canyon. Miss Wil
son was thrown out of the vehicle , but
one foot caught and she was dragged
nearly a mile. The horse finally stopped
for exhaustion and the bruised , bleeding
and broken body of the unconscious
girl 1 was taken to a neighboring house ,
where she soon died.
The deceased was a sister of Clerk Wilson -
son ' of Frontier county and her distress
ing : death has cast a deep gloom over
that entire community. The funeral and
burial occurred in Curtis on Sunday.
Scored Another Success.
The Imperial quartet scored another •
big 1 success in our city , last evening , at
their ' second appearance in the Congre
gational church under auspices of the '
Endeavor society. The church was well
filled and the audience was highly ap
preciative , encoring every number to a
response. Mr. Parks and his combina- (
tiou are artists , seasoned and confident , '
and they produce a wealth of harmony ,
with a sprinkling of mirth , tha 't never
fails to draw large audiences , and never
comes short of entertaining those who
hear them. They were as generous in
their responses , last night , as the audi
ence was in its demonstrations of appre
ciation. The Endeavorers come in for a (
neat profit from this entertainment. A
H. H. Berry aud family had quite a j
scare from fire , Wednesday night of this t
week. A lamp was set too near the win
dow curtains , which caught fire and
caused no little commotion in that
household for a few moments. It happened - f
pened about ten o'clock , and the prompt J
action of Mr. Berry and members of the
family doubtless saved the house.
The Danbury Creamery Co. has filed *
its articles of incorporation with the

capital stock is $1,575.
At a Ripe Old Affo.
At an early hour , Tuesday morning ,
Pierre Bonnet passed quietly from earth ,
after an illness of about two weeks , with
pneumonia. The funeral was held on
Thursday afternoon at two o'clock from
St. Patrick's church , Rev. J. W. Hickey
conducting the brief services of the oc
casion. Interment was made in Calvary
cemetery , where the remains of his wife
were laid away some ten years since.
There were a number of beautiful floral
offerings. The services were simple and
were attended by relatives of the de
ceased and friends of the family.
fPlERRE BONNOT was bom in Dan-
blain , France , on January 23 , 1821 , and
died in McCook , Nebraska , March 1st ,
1898. He came to America at an early
age. first settling in Croghan , New York ,
and afterwards going to Augusta , Wis
consin. He married Felicie Rufinot in
Chicago , and of this union there were
two children , Alfred P. Bonnet of our
city aud Mrs. John R. McGrath of Unity ,
Wisconsin. He came to McCook in 1886 ,
and with the exception of a short time
has resided here ever since. He was of a
quiet and retiring disposition , and was
highly esteemed by all who knew him.
The Tribune expresses a general and
genuine sentiment in extending the
heartfelt sympathy of all to the be
reaved ones. ]
