Walter Rowland Murdered
A telegram from Herndon Kansas
Monday morning announced the mur
der of Dr J Walter Rowland of that
place that morning by an unknown
person The doctor was shot twico
once each through the head and stom
ach death being practically instanta
neous The tragedy occurred in a small
room attached to the rear of the general
merchandise store of GW Dull a room
used by Dull in which to store his stock
of flour The doctor and Dull who were
close friends had been talking together
in this small room just before the trag
edy took place
At the coroners inquest held on the
following day it was considered that the
evidence given warranted the arrest of
Dull Tuesday evening who was taken
to the county jail of Rawlins county
Kansas at Atwood pending a prelimin
ary hearing A young man bj tho name
of Mathers who is a clerk in Dulls
store testified that ho was in tho store
proper when Dull and Rowland were in
the rear room wherein tho murder was
perpetrated Hearing loud voices Ma
thers went to tho back part of tho store
to hear tho conversation but both Dull
and Rowland censed talking when ho
appeared Returning to the front part
of tho store Mathers shortly afterward
heard two shots fired and ran back to i
tho rear of tho store and found Rowland
dying in tho flour room Seeing no one
else in tho room which was filled with
smoke he rushed back into tho private
office and saw Dull seated at his desk
JIo asked Dull if he had not heard shots
fired and Dull said ho had but suppos
ed they were from tho outside Although
Dull and tho dead man had been long
regarded as close friends Dull expressed
no surprise and did not seem to be at all
excited when told that Rowland had
been murdered which is regarded as a
remarkable circumstance in view of their
long and intimate friendship
Dr Rowland was a Mason and carried
in insurance policy for 2000 in the
Workman order being a member of the
McCook lodge
John Rowland and J arvey Rowland
father and brother of the deceased live
just across the state line in Grant pre
cinct Red Willow county where the dead
man spent a number of years of his life
before entering the practice of medicine
in Kansas lie is well known to many
residents of this county His widow
his second wife was a Miss Canagawho
i also a doctor and a daughter of Elias
Canaga of the Redwillow neighborhood
The funeral was held on Wednesday
burial being made at Indianola under
Masonic and Workman auspices
It is a dark bloody and mysterious
tragedy which ma be unravelled at
the trial
A pathetic incident of the bloody trag
edy is the fact that Mrs Rowland be
camo a mother three days before the mur
der and naturally much solicitude for
her well being was felt by relatives and

We Need a Few Like Jake
The Tribune notes in the Lincoln
Journal that Ex Land Commissioner
Jake Wolfe is planting 500 acres of sugar
beets this season which reminds us
that the farmers of Redwillow county
are not going into this matter with the
enthusiasm and push they ought to and
that they might well follow the example
of Uncle Jako in the matter of planting
sugar beets anyhow Lay aside every
thing of a personal nature and look at
the proposition on its merits alone It
is a profitable crop and as sure as any
crop that can be produced in this coun
ty Isnt that enough to warrant your
planting a few acres at least The Re
publican valley ought by another year
at tho longest to bo able to raise enough
beets to warrant a factory to be built

Origin of Passion Play
High up in the mountains of Bavaria
lies the little village of Obor Ammergau
A plague broke out in the mountains in
1633 and was introduced into the village
by a laborer who came bya secret and
Unguarded path to vigllfhii family the
inhabitants were threatened with extinc
tion and in their distress made a vow to
represent at intervals for thankful re
membrance and edifying contemplation
and by the help of the Almighty the
sufferings of Jesus the Savior of the
world Tradition says that not a single
nerson died from the nlatrue thereafter
The first performance was given in 1634
continued at intervals of either one or
ten years up to 1674 was repeated in
1680 and has been maintained every ten
years since except when war caused an

At the ago of two or three years chil
dren go upon the stage in tho arms of
their mothers Ten years later they
may wave palm branches and cry Ho
sanna at the triumphal entry of Christ
into Jerusalem in ten years more they
may figure as Roman soldiers servants
of the temple judges or other minor
characters and happy indeed they are if
their daily life among their fellow villag
ers through all these thirty or forty
years has been such that they are
counted worthy to represent an apostle
for to few is it granted to go higher
A clergyman who saw the Passion Play
says I was prepared for a striking ex
hibition but also half prepared for some
rude shocks to ones natural sense of re
ligious propriety so impossible did it
seem to represent on a public stage and
in a worth manner the sublime story of
Gethsemane and Calvary But I have
never seen so affecting a spectacle or one
more calculated to draw out the best
and purest feelings of the heart It is
of course impossible to answer for the
feelings of others but I can say for my
self and the many other spectators whom
I have consulted that there was nothing
from the beginning to the end that need
shock the most sensitive religious in
