Last Thursday night a couple
of shots rang out quick and sharp in-
the northwest part of town. Then
the cry of fire and the fire bell was"
rung. A fire had broken out in
the building in which Geo. Len-
augh's family were living caused
by the stove burning in full blast
and the stove pipe * being too near
the wood in the ceiling , but a few
strokes with the ax and some wat-

Our citizens were surprised last
Saturday morning to learn' of the
death of Old Henry Woodson , a
colored man living down near the
R. R. bridge. He had not been
sickHit was not in robust health.
His death was discovered early
Saturday morning by the little boy
they had taken to raise and it is
thought he died of hearttrouble. .
Henry Woodson had served sever
al years in the army , and was a
soldier in the civil war. He be
longed to the Grand Army Post
here arid the flag floated at half
mast in honor of him from Satur
day until Monday when he was
laid to rest in Mount Hope Ceme
tery where his brother , Mat Wood-
son , procured a family lot. The
Chaplain of the Post conducted his
funeral from the house Monday at
12 o'clock. The deceased leaves a
wife and a brother to mourn his
Heath. He had livqd here 15 or 16
years and was about 66 years old.

The First National Bank of Yal
entine , Neb. has just installed onet
of the famous Hibbard-Rodman- '
Ely Manganese Steel Mob and-
Burglar Proof Bank Safes having j
a storage capacity of five (5) ( ) cu. ft.
This safe is a marvel of mechani
cal ingunity and and engineering |
skill. In material , design and con
struction it is far in advance of
anything that has yet been pro
duced. The material manganese
steel is so hard that'no burglar
could possibly drill it , even with
the diamond drill. The hardnessi
of'chrome steel and chilled iron1
used in safe and vault construction |
has always had the objection of
brittleness , or the ready breaking
up under action of high explosives ,
which are the burglar's tools of to :
clay , but manganese steel is not
brittle. It is so tough that it will
resist , without breaking or crack
ing , charges of high explosives
which would wreck the largest of
buildings. The Manganese Steel
Safe is constructed of only two
pieces of metal , a body and a door.1
The latter , which is circular , ig
ground into theformer to a < valve
tight ! joint , precluding the possi ;
bility of introducing any liquid e
plosives. The body and door are
securely held together when the
safe is locked by wedge bolts ,
which make the two practically
one. In construction of the safe
it is necessary to grind the mater
ial since no tools will machine it.
In presenting these statements
for the consideration of the bank
ing public , the company which
manufactures these safes furnishes
proofs in the shape of many tests
which have been mado by experts
and by banks. What is by far the
most convincing evidence of the
merits of this safe occurre'd at the
1st National Bank , Smithton , Pa. ,
on the night of Nov. 10 , 1901.
Burglars entered this bank and !
blew open two vault doors and en
deavored to open the Hibbard-Rod-
man-Ely Manganese Steel Safe
which was in the vault , but were
completely frustrated. , Previous
to the Paris exposition of 1900 ,
the U. . S. Government made a
thorough investigation of all makes
of safes , and determined that the
Manganese Steel safe was the only
one that could be relied upon to
protect its contents. Therefor ,
they ordered one to be sent to
Paris , and while there they used it
for the storage of their § 150,000
gold quartz exhibit. The company
entered this safe for award , and
challenged the entire safe ! manu
facturing world to submit one of
their make with the idea that they
should be taken outside the expo
sition grounds and tested compet-
ively. No one dared to accept'
the challenge , and the Manganese
Steel Safe was awarded the gold
The U. S. Government used two
of these Manganese Steel Safes to
protect its gold quartz and _ prec
ious stones exhibitat the Pan-
American exposition at Buffalo.
The company manufacturing the
safes had one on exhibition , and.
the Fidelity Trust Company of
Buffalo usedone at their Pan- !
American branch for the safekeep-1
ing of their funds. At the Pan- !
American Exposition the Hibbard-
Rodman-Ely Safe Company re- *
ceived the Highest Award and
Gold Medal for their Burglar
Proof Manganese Steel Safes and

Congressman John S. Robinson
is suffering from appendicitis and
is to be operated on at his home in
Madison today. Dr. A. P. Con
don , of this city received a tele
gram from tlie congressman yes
terday requesting him to come to
Madison to perform the operation.
Omaha Bee. . .
Dr. A. P. Condon passed through
Humphrey Wednesday evening
for.Madison , and upon his arrival
there found Mr. Robinson so much
improved that he deemed an opera
tion unnecessary. . The Omaha
surgeons have a reputation of op
erating on everyone whenever
they have an opportunity , * 'special
ly for - appendicitis , and it makes
one feel thankful that there is one
surgeon in Omaha who will decline
the pleasure of operating , unless
it absolutely necessary. Mr.
Robinson , we understand , intends
to"-leave for Washington about the
12th of January. We are pleased
to-know the recovery of Congress

Secretary Hitcncqck has changed
his mind with reference to the bill
providing for the leasing of grazing
lands in Nebraska and Wyoming. He
says he hap-examined closely into the
provisions of the bill and decided that
it would operate "to the detriment of
the homesteaders and hence he shall
oppose it. Mr Mondeil has just re
turned from Wyoming where he went
immediately upon the adjournment
of congress for the holiday recess
Discussing the troubles that have
arisen over-the fencing of the west
ern grazing lands be said : "There
has not been much of that sort of
thing in Wyoming , though a number
of fences recently haye been taken
down by order of the land agents.
The trouble is not necessarily so ser
ious , even in Nebraska , as it has been
reported Most of the land.that has
been fenced is fit only for grazing pur
poses and there has been no incroach-
ment to speak of on the rights of
homesteaders There is no great
crime in the mere fencing of grazing
land-though it is a good thing for the
government to tane .a take a stand
against it once in awhile to prevent
abuses. The only question generally
involved is as to which settlement
shall have the use of the land ond ov
er this the public is not seriously con
cerned There has been no occasion
for the great clamor" that recently
has been rained " State Journal.
