Mr. Immel states , is that the company
paid him the full amount of his loss ,

did not reach the company's offices
until after his loss report was re
ceived. Newman Grove Reporter.
A workman , whllo digging sand on
the Colson farm northwest of Fre
mont , unearthed the skeleton of a
human being yesterday. The find so
unnerved him that ho refused to con
tinue at his task but jumped In a wagon
gen and drove to the farm of J. M.
Maher , where ho told what he had
seen. The rain prevented an Im
mediate investigation from being
made , but today Dr. Frank Brown and
Mr. Maher went to the place and ex
cavated the bones. They proved to
lo ) a complete skeleton , but were not
in a good enough state of preserva
tion for mounting. To ono side of the
remains was a small cracked vessel
made of pottery , similar to what the
Indians used before white men came
to this country. It may have con
tained some incense or other funeral
offering. The conjecture of the mon
who brought the bonos.to light is that
they are these oC some Pnwnoo bravo ,

THE CROPS ARE ALL IN.
Lovcland Quits on the Crop Bulletin.
Nothing Further to Report.
[ From Tlmrsilriv'f Dullv ]
( ! . A. Loveland , suction director of
the crop and weather servlco at Lin
coln , announces a discontinuance of
the weekly crop bulletin for the sea
son. It has kept the people Informed
on the condition of the crops during
the summer months , and now that
the growing season Is practically fin
ished the report will bo discontinued.
The past wools is reported to hiivo
been favorable for thrashing and hayIng -
Ing over the state. Potatoes have
been dug and a very short crop is rn
ported. Pastures and ranges are gen
erally in good condition and forage
of all kinds Is plentiful. Fall plowIng -
Ing Is well advanced and considerable
wheat has boon sown.
Mr. Loveland reports the effects of
the freeze on corn as follows :
"Corn in extreme southeastern
counties was uninjured by frost , and
In a considerable area in the eastern
portion of the state the damage was
but slight. The temperature was
lower and the crops more Injured to
the north and westward. Minimum
temperatures ranging from 20 de
grees to 2.1 degrees occurred In Cher
ry , Cnster , Lincoln , ChiiKo and Hitch
cock counties. This In a general way
outlines the area of severest freeze.
Minimum temperatures of : ! 0 degrees
or below occurred quite generally
north of the Platte river , except near
the Missouri and Platte rivers , where1
they were about or slightly above
freoxlng. South of the Platte river
the minimum temperature was 30 de
grees or above as far west as Kear
ney and Franklin counties. The corn
leaves were killed quite generally ex
cept eastern counties and in a con
siderable area in the central counties
the stalk was killed also. In a largo
portion of the area of severe frost
one-half or moro of the corn crop
was sufficiently matured to withstand
the frost with llttlo if any damage.
The rest of the crop was qnito ser
iously injured. In some localities
nearly every field will bo moro or
loss damaged. "
Merely a Reminder.
Boar in mind that Perry Davis'
Painkiller Is just as good for internal
an for external troubles. It will slop
the agonizing cramps in the liowols
which follow exposure to cold and wet
when taken internally , and will euro
strains , sprains and bruises when ap
plied externally. It should bo admin
istered in warm water , slightly Hwoot-
onod. There is but ono painkiller ,
