David Moyer Dead.
David Moyer, who has been working
on the Hist farm near Humboldt for
some time was found dead in bis
room by Mr. Uist Tuesday morning.
Coroner Wilson was summoned and
an Inquest held. Apparently Moyer
had been dead several hours. lie
did not appear at breakfastand Mr.
Uist went to bis room to call him.
He was lying face down on the floor.
Death was evidently due to heart
trouble. He had a brother in Okla
homa who arrived Wednesday to
take charge of the body. On his
person was found a small amount of
money and bank books showing he
had considerable money on deposit
in banks in Snbrthn and Hiawatha
lie was unmarried and bis brother
will likely take the body back to
Oklahoma for burial.
The verdict of the corner's jury is
as follows:

A Town Without a Christmas.
That was Franklin, Nebraska on
Christmas day. An epidemic of ty
phoid fever is raging there and ev
ery effort is being put forth to quell
it. The board of health is enforc
ing the strictest rules of quarantine.
No child under fifteen is allowed on
the street. No children thronged the
toy simps, no Christmas trees were
trimmed, there were no entertain
ments for the little folks at the
churches. The merchants stored
away their supply of holiday goods
and the re was none of the joy and
happiness that usually characterizes
} Christmas.
As lias been the custom of the
: Church for ages and a custom fol
lowed in lliis city for many years,
I there was a choral celebration of
the Holy Eucharist at St. Thomas
1 Episcopal church Christmas eve. As
usual the church was filled, for many
| whoare not communicants, make a
point of attending the midnight ser
vice on Christmas Eve for its beauty
and solemnity. The church was dec
orated with beautiful Christmas
greens and lighted throughout with
candles, no other artificial light
being used. Special music was sung
by the large vested choir the Agnus
Del sung by Roy Fairchilds and the
offertory by Miss Tanner and Miss
Taylor being exceptionally good
The short address of the rector.
Rev. Nelde, was very good and dwelt
somewhat with the disappointments
or failures of former Christmas days.
The absent ones who seem more
real and nearer to us at this sea
son the very present opportunity of
the present Christmas to make others
happier bv overcoming past disap
I pointmonts and by making a special
i effort in memory of the birth of the
I Christ Child whose life was all love
| and sacrifice to brighten and make
I happier for some one this happiest
day of all the year.
It was a beautiful service through
| out and its beauty and solemnity left
with all the feeling of "Peace on
Earihj Good Will Toward Men.”
Ankle Broken in Runaway.
Last Monday the Misses Amanda,
| Emma and Irma Duerfeldt were com
ing to town from their home in Bar
ada and when two blocks west of the
High school the mules they drove
shied at an auto. The pressure of
the animal against the pole of the
buggy snapped it which frightened j
the team and they ran away. Miss j
Amanda, who was driving was thrown
out and was kicked by the mule
though not seriously hurt. She was
bruised from the buggy running over
her. Emma and Irma jumped and
Emma had her left ankle broken and
one bon© dislocated. She was taken
to Dr. Boose’s office where the in
juries were dressed and later was
taken to the home of Miss Grace
Maddox where she will remain until
it is practical to remove her to her
home in Barada. At this time she is
getting along as well as could be ex
pected. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Barnnrd Duerfeldt came down from
Barada Wednesday to look after her. I
