Mrs. J.C.Allen Kills Herself.
A dispatch from Moiitnouth , Illinois ,
appearing under date of July i6th , brings
ttliK sad news of the death of Mrs. J.
C. Allen , wife of our former townsman ,
by her own hand , lust Sunday afternoon.
The unfortunate woman is believed to
Siave been mentally unbalanced. Death
was caused by inhaling illuminating gas.
After leaving Nebraska , Mr. Allen became -
-came one of the leading and most prom-
rlnenl dry goods meichnnts of Mon-
unoutli. He will have the sympathy of
.his many friends in Nebraska in the sad
tragedy that has overwhelmed his home
For some time past the health and
cniud of Mrs. Allen have been such that
constant attendance was required. Yes
terday morning her husband drove to
Burlington. Later Mrs. Allen persuaded
iher attendant to go to church.
Upon her return the doors were locked
; and a strong odor of gas pervaded the
premises. Breaking open the door
Tthe body was found locked in a room
where were four open gas jets. Investi
gation showed that every gas jet in the
liouse had been turned on lull force.
"Her Fifth Anniversary.
rLast Monday was the fifth anniversary
of little Celestine Kendleu's birth , and
the occasion was made one of merriment
-and joy. About thirty of the little miss's
youthful friends and neighbors were in
vited in to celebrate the event , and a
right royal good time was enjoyed by
them one and all. Refreshments were
served , games played and a number of
Chappy hours had. Several of the moth
ers and older sisters attended to promote
U.he pleasure of the guests.
The Men are Winners.
The men of the Congregational church
achieved a "winning" in their ice cream
social , last evening. They drew a quite
liberal patronage. There was a short
program. The social feature was a bap-
spy element of the evening. The Junior
Endeavorers gathered in not a few uick-
els at their lemonade and flower stands.
The "lords of creation" of that church
-are ste.pping pretty high , this morning.

Tn a comparative sense there is an un-
jusual amount of gold coin in local circu
lation just now a fact which is noted
elsewhere as well. Indeed the banks
are experiencing some inconvenience in
securing enough paper money to accom
modate the demands of their customers.

$20.30 , have raised enough to have the

preciated by the public.

The "Awl-Os" Oh !
The "Awl-Os" were cleverly enter
tained by Miss Nellie Guun , Tuesday-
evening. Guessing matches were the
unique source of entertainment : A dozen
little bottles were filled with different
liquids and the guests were asked to
guess the names of them. Miss Myrtle
Meyer took the prize a number of
pretty vials filled with different colored
liquids Miss Edna Meserve received
the prize for writing the best original
advertisement a bit of rhyme. Re
freshments were served. Though not
so largely attended as some meetings of
the club , the affair was a happy one.
Can't Stand the Pressure.
There is something simply irresistible
about the mellow , alluring light ofthe
electric lighting system of our city. In
his perambulations over the city , nights ,
the average swain finds it utterly impos
sible to pass an incandescent light in the
shaded residence portion of the munici
pality without giving his best girl a
warm embrace or a resounding suiack.
It is plain to be seen that the kissing
bug of the orient will receive scant cour
tesy and encouragement here.

Two parties of Burlington surveyors
are now at work in Wyoming. One has
started at Granger , and will survey the
line west from there to Salt Lake , while
another party has begun work at Elk
mountain. The surveyors are equipped
for a long stay in the field.
A fast train that will leave all other
fast trains far behind is to have a trial
trip on the New York Central soon , and
if the estimates of its possible speed are
justified , it will be a record breaker
nearly twice over. The train will be
constructed in accordance with the ideas
of Frederick U.Adams , its inventor , and
is expected to make 120 miles an hour
as easily as fast trains now run sixty
miles an hour. The principal difference
in the main construction of the train
from that of the ordinary train is that it
is built to minimize the resistance of the
air built like a yacht. It is constructed
so as to cut the air like a knife.
