Miss Nettie Brosius returned
Tuesday night from Omaha to
spend a few weeks at home , Mr.
and Mrs. Cochran for whom she
has been working having gone to
Poughkeepsie , N. Y . on account
of the death of Mrs. Cochran's
father. J. E. Cochran's father
and brother Percy accompanied
the Cochran family from Omaha
Lawrence Rice , now past S.years
of age , got tired doing nothing as
heexpressed it , and wanting to
earn some money , Tuesday eve
ning he gathered up a few last
week's DEMOCRATS under his arm
and started out as a newsboy. Up
on his return he was jubilant over
having sold a paper and stalked
around the office as big as if he
managed the shop and singing ,
"By and by hard times comes a
at tljo door , " .
S. J. Blakely was in town from
Simeon last Thursday and Friday
getting supplies for the Anderson-
Hoffacker ranch near that place.
He subscribed for the DEMOCRAT
while in town to get the news.
Lee and Wm. Shepard have pur
chased the Tracewell & Bonser
livery barn and rigs. These young
men are honest , industrious and
worthy of patronage. They have
held positions of trust but will now
ask a liberal share of business for
themselves , and people who deal
with them will find that they are |
courteous , obliging and gentle
manly in their conduct and THE
DEMOCRAT hopes to see them en joy
a reward of merit. The barn was
built larger and higher by Trace-
well & 'Bonser and many conveniences - '
iences added which make it a de
sirable business property.
The boxing contest that is billed
to take place at Ft. Kiobrara next
Friday night , is creating more in
terest in sporting circles than any
thing that has taken place in a
number of years. Ireland has
trained hard and faithfully for this
contest , and is in the best possible
conditions. He is very confident
of winning and is certainly looking
fine. Farrell and his trainer and
backer , Tommy Sullivan , arrived
here this morning. Farrell is a
large man and looks to be a for
midable opponent for any man.
He says he is in fine form , and is as
confident of winning as Ireland is ,
and this should be one of the very
best contests ever pulled off in this
county. A good wad of money
will change hands on this battle.

From the. Cdy Cow Boy :
BRADBURY BOUT. Frank JS.
Bradbury and Mrs. Esther Bert
were united in marriage at Valen
tine , Saturday , February 6 , Judge
Towne officiating. They expect
to reside on the ranch of A. A.
Lamb after the 1st of March.
Word was received in Cody ,
Tuesday morning of the death of
Joseph Schaefer , at Marion Junc
tion , S. D. , the cause of his death
not being known here yet. His
sons , Anton and Alois , departed
from here on Wednesday morning
to be present at the funeral , after
which they will return to Cody.
The deceased has been at Marion
Junction for about three years ,
and the past year Anton has been
residing on his farm near Nenzel.
The news of his death was a sur
prise to the boys here , since Hen
ry received a letter from there
Sunday morning in which nothing
was said about his father being ill.
Burned to death. Clarence El-
bert Lester , second son of J. W.
Lester and wife , aged 3 years , 10
months and 6 days , met his death
Tuesday , Feb. 9 , by being burned.
During the afternoon Mrs. Lester
had stepped out to her neighbor's ,
Mrs. Munn , leaving the two child
ren playing at home , the other
child being about 5 or C years of
of age. Shortly after this the
children began playing with the
fire and in some way the little '
child's clothing was ignited. The
older , it is presumed , was too 1
frightened to run out and give the
alarm and the doomed child was |
burned in a frightful manner.
When the mother reached home
the clothing was nearly all burned
off and the child beyond recovery ?
breathing his last in a short time.
The sympathy of the community
is with the bereaved family in this
their loss. The remains were bur
ied yesterday , the services being
.conducted by Rev , IJunt ,
