In a sad plight because the horse
stopped still , refused to budge and

the mud all ever the party gowns of
the fair drivers.
Miss Maude Tannohlll and Miss
Olonnlo Evans wore driving home
from a dancing party nt Wnrnorvlllo.
The night was moonlit. The horse
started through a pool In the high

Kind words failed to start the ani

kick nnd bad spattering. So the
drivers plucklly remained In the middle -

and helped them out.

HENRY MARTY OF PLAINVIEW
ARRESTED THIS MORNING.
MAY FACE A SERIOUS CHARGE
Found With Goods From Saloon of
Andrew Hanson In His Possession.
Cash Had Been Missed for Some
Time Probably Had Duplicate Key
Plalnvlow , Neb. , July 29. Special
to The News : Henry Marty , a laborIng -
Ing man of this city , Is In Jail and
may be compelled to face a serious
charge , If burglary la made the com
plaint against him.
For a long time past Andrew Han
son has missed goods and money from
his saloon. Marty was suspected of
the theft and n watch has been kept
on his movements with the result that
he was caught this morning about G
o'clock with stolen gooda in his pos
session. An Inventory of the contents
of his pockets this morning after his
arrest revealed a box of cigars , four
separate cigars , one bottle of whts
ky and four bottles of beer. It Is
supposed that he had a duplicate key
of the saloon building and went In
and helped himself ns occasion
At various times cash | ias been
missed from the till of the saloon in
sums ranging from twenty-five cents
to $1.75 and It Is supposed that Mar
ty was responsible for the disappear
ance of this cash.
A search of Marty's premises re
vealed quite a store of plunder , and
the officers are confident that they
have the man who has been respon
sible for considerable petty thievery.

HOW LUCKY ONES MAY DISPOSE
OF A CLAIM.
MAY BE DONE IN SIXTY DAYS
Commissioner Richards Tells of the
Method by Which One Wishing to
Relinquish May Do So Have to
Hold Land for Next Two Months.
With 2,000 names down In the
Rosebud lottery , the question of re
llnqiilshlng Is now a live one , says
a Chamberlain dispatch. A large
proportion of those who have been
successful In Uncle Sam's great game
of chance have no Intention of filing
and living on the lands they have
drawn. They simply took a chance
In the game.
W. A. Richards , commissioner of
the general land ofllce , this afternoon
told how rellnqulshments may be
"Oh , yes , " said the commlsloner ,
"a man may relinquish , but he will
have to hold his land for sixty days.
What will he have to do In that time ?
Nothing , but file and pay the govern
ment price which Is required at the
time of filing , namely , $1 an acre.
During the sixty days Intervening , If
he relinquishes the lands cannot be
disposed of except under the condi
tions of the lottery. That Is , If lie
relinquishes within that time some
man who has drawn a number may
Hie on the claim , but none other. At
the end of the sixty days he may re
linquish , and of course , some one
else may file on It Immediately. "
The commlsloner was not willing
to make any suggestions as to how
this should be done , but the method
will be for the person who has relin
quished for a consideration to se
cretly go to the land office with the
person in whose favor he proposes to
relinquish and that person will file
"An old soldier , " continued the com
missioner , "may Hie through the agent
who registered him , upon a payment
of | 2 and the filing of a declaratory
.statement. If he flies In this way
any person may file on the same land
and the conditional filing will get the
Should Get Rid of Agents.
"In this connection , " said the com-
mlsioner , "I would advise that old
soldiers get rid of their agents and
make a regular entry In person , then ,
If they wish to relinquish , they may
do so. For example , the man drawing
the first number would better get rid
of his agent at once and make his
entry in person. "
There Is confusion about the man
who drew the flrst dumber. He was
registered through a locating agent
from Washington named Herrlck.
Herrlck is afraid other agents will
get to him , and Is busily engaged in
concealing his address. He flrst
gave It as Pennsylvania and later
gave It as Nebraska , frankly acknowl
edging he feared the wiles of other
Commisloner Richards further ex
plained that the price of the land ,
now $4 an acre , will remain so If the
land Is filed on as a result of the
drawing. After ninety days land not
Hied on in the Rosebud will be 13.50
an acre. After the second period of
ninety days It will be | 2.50 an acre ,
but the price will remain fixed If It
Is not filed on or bought from the
government during these periods.
The commissioner said today that
the townslte proposition was being
left with Washington , and that he
knew nothing about it and that no
announcement would be made until
just before the filing.
MISS BOTSFORD , NO. 26.
Only Person in Madison County to
Draw a Claim Within 100.
The only Madison county person to
draw out within the flrst 100 names
at Chamberlain , was a young woman
at Tllden. Miss Anna Botsford ,
daughter of Howard Botsford , formerly -
erly a commissioner In this county.
Miss Botsford has been dining room
girl In the hotel at Tllden for some
time past. Her father owns forty
acres of land near that place and her
friends are all glad for her that the
opportune homestead has come into
her possession. Her claim Is esti
mated as worth $4,000.
