About twenty two years ago Richard
Brown and family, now of this place,
resided on a farm near Columbus, this
state, and while there, Mr. Brown pur
chased a new reaper and mower com
bined with which to do his harvesting,
paying 8210 for the same. He got it
put together and cut his own grain con
sisting of about thirty acres and then
took it to a neighbor's one etening in
tending to begin cutting his grain the
next morning, but when they went out
to commence work they found the ma
chine smashed into atoms. The finger
of suspicion pointed strongly to one
John O'Brien, also a resident of that
place, but the evidence was not strong
enough to warrant an arrest, so the
matter was dropped, notwithstanding
the fact that the county had offered a
reward of S300 for the arrest and con
viction of the party who committed the
act. About two years after this Mr. B.
and family removed to Xorth Platte
where they resided for several years be
fore moving to this place. A little over
a year ago Mr. Brown received a letter
from a Catholic priest at Stanberry, Mo.,
requesting him to call on Father O'Tooie
at North Platte and if he could be iden
tified as the right party he might hear
something to his advantage. About two
weeks since Mr. Brown waited on the
Rev. gentleman who asked him if he was
ever acquainted with a man by the name
of John O'Brien at Columbus and he
told him that he was. He also asked
Mr. B. if O'Brien ever owed him any
thing and ho told him that ho did not,
but that he had a machine broken up
while he resided at Columbus and al
ways suspicioned O'Brien as the party
who did it. Father O'Tooie then replied
that O'Brien had since died in Missouri,
leaving $100 with his daughter, Mrs.
Thos. Grant, for him. He undoubtedly
confessed to the act. Mr. Brown re
ceived a check for the amount last week.
The sum paid did not cover one-half of
the cost of the machine, without saying
anything about interest. Correspond
ence North Platte Tribune.
A man registered as "Cfias. Dodd,
St. Paul," committed suicide at Fuller
ton by a bullet wound in the neck that
extended upward, and after severing the
spinal chord, the bullet had buried itself
in the muscles lying next to the skull.
The bullet was a 32, and a revolver
found by the side of the corpse disclosed
the fact that one chamber had been
fired, and the bullet taken from the
head of the deceased corresponded with
that which had been fired from the re
volver. The doctor testified that death
had been instantaneous. The verdict
was suicide, and the deceased was prob
ably 23 years of age; he had blue eyes;
was of slight build; very emaciated,
about 5 feet 8 inches high, and would
weigh about 130 pounds. He had no
beard. One front tooth was badly de
cayed. He had the general appearance
of a laboring man. bo says the Post.

May 11, the Union Pacific depot was
robbed of all the contents of the safe in
broad daylight while the agent was un
loading freight. The parties, four in
number, obtained S2S in money and
some money order blanks. Two tramps
have been arrested six miles east of
Humphrey, at Creston, for breaking
into a hardware store and were caught
there. They made a hard fight, in which
a citizen got stabbed severely. They do
not give their names.
Bert Strother was in the city Mon

loans, $522,554.90; capital surplus and
undivided profits $277,566.57; cash on

Corn planting will. probably be fin

The family of T. Johnson is having
more than its share of sickness this

little girl about four years old, who is
thrown into spasms by the tortures of a

Fred Stenger, who recently lost his
pocket-book witli about $400 worth of
valuable papers, is industriously plant

We heard J. H. Drinnin (who keeps
two colonies of bees up on the hill) say,
the mortality among his colonies last
winter was great; went into winter quar
ters strong; large numbers died during
each cold spell; enough remains to make
a body of strong workers. Was taking
honey from the soft maple March 15, but
buckwheat and heart's ease late in the

Some of the old heads predict a poor
crop of small grain; however that may
be, we know of a few fields of oats and
wheat, that cannot make more than half
a crop. Wild plums will be very few;
peaches are nothing, strawberries, cur
rants and gooseberries fair; it should
not be forgotten that those lakes and
pends that the honorable John Browner
spoke of over a year ago (and since men
tioned in The Journal), are now as dry
as a powder house.
When passing the well cultivated farm
of W. J. Newman's east of tho city on
the morning of April 17, wo dropped in
to have a chat with the genial stockman.
Bill, was preparing to sow a field of oats
over tho second time, said he got them
in a little too early ami the freezing
wejither that followed left them too thin
on the ground While there, wo saw
large out-of door beds of garden truck
high above tho ground and when ready
to resume, was given a bundle of pie
plant, of which some of tho stalks re
sembled the forearm of a man. and was
told by tho proprietor that if vo would
stay until about noon wo should have
new radishes to take with us. We
freely admit that the make-up of tho
soil at his place forces vegetation earlier
in the spring than our bluff land, but it
is with reluctance that wo admit of his
superior skill in cultivation.
