Lincoln Journal : Additional reports
from the storm of Saturday night Indi
cate that the area affected by hall was
unusually large In the aggregate , and
that the sections where the hall Was
fatal to crops were of unusually wide
distribution. This Is n catastrophe
that strikes some part of every agri
cultural state every year , and Is ono
of the unpreventable sort which the
farmers can only grin and bear with
the fortitude no person can afford to
lack who must depend upon the co
operation of nature for the success of
his ventures. Skill In planting nnd
cultivating may avert some of the
evils of drought or excessive moisture ,
science mny defend against Insect en
emies , but the hall cloud nobody can
check. They used to try It with can-
nous when hail threatened the grapes
In Italy and France , but the effort
availed nothing , unless It were to bring
the relief that comes with the mere
effort to defend oneself. Fortunately
the areas sacrificed to hall are com
paratively small. Flvo or six hall
storms In every 100 square miles of
Nebraska territory Is the annual av
erage. These will not amount to a
slight damage to more than 5 or G per
cent of the total area , and much less
still will be the area damaged serious
ly. Nebraska Is In fact considerably
more fortunate than her neighbors
south and east In this respect.
HIGGINS CASE BRINGS BACK PARALLEL -
WAS EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO
While People at Pender This Week
Scouted the Idea That Hlgglns Might
Have Met With Violence , Old Tim
ers Remember When Foley Hanged.
Old timers are recalling a north Ne
braska tragedy of eighteen years ago ,
which In Its details corresponds closely
to the murder of Mr. and Mrs. Copplo
Monday Lorls P. HIggens , the farm
hand who murdered Mr. and Mrs. Cop
plo , was brought to Pender , where he
waived preliminary hearing and was
hurriedly bound over to the distrlcl
court. Then Sheriff Young , who had
stolen into Pender with his man , drove
overland eighteen miles to West Point
where sheriff and prisoner boarded the
Northwestern for Omaha. Conductor
Pierce had charge of the train which
brought Hlgglns back to the safe con
lines of the Douglas county Jail.
People at Pender resented the Idea
that violence could have resultec
from Higgons' open appearance at
their town. But eighteen years ago
when that other north Nebraska trag
edy was enacted the Higgons of elgh
teen years ago met death at the hands
of a mob.
It is the shooting of Mr. and Mrs
Pomeroy Clark of Elgin on June 19
1889 , that the old timers recall as the
striking parallel to the double murde
near Pender. Nicholas Foley , who she
the Clarks , was like HIggens cmploye (
as a farmhand by the husband am
wlfo who were his victims.
Angered because the Clarks objected
to his attentions to Mrs. Clark's sister
young Foley stole Into Clark's room
and shot the husband. Ho rushec
down stairs only to return later in th
night with a ladder. Climbing th
ladder he shot and instantly killed
Foley was captured near Burwcl
When Deputy Sheriff Beckwlth with
his prisoner were four miles east o
Elgin on their way to Nellgh they wer
overpowered by a mob. Foley wa
taken from the officer and lynched
Ho was hanged from a high brldg
over Cedar Creek.
