the building. The office is moved to the
back and east part of the room. The
new arrangement gives more room and
light and is more convenient in many
ways. Mr. Ragatz occupies the base

for room for his large custom.
The funeral ot Valentine S. Hoy, who
was killed ia Wyoming by outlaws, was
held Wednesday afternoon at Fremont.
The ceremonies were under the direction
of the Masonic lodge of Fremont. The
sermon was delivered by Rev. Buss.
The trouble grew out ot outrages that
the outlaws had committed, one of these
being the murder of a 16-year-old boy
named Strang, who made his home with
the Hoys. The gang were followed, and
four outlaws paid their life as a penalty
for their crimes, and they were wrapped
in their blankets and buried.

April 3, 1894, the school board of this
district submitted a proposition to the
electors to bond, the district for $18,000
for the purpose of purchasing two, sites,
erecting: two school buildings and pro
viding them with furniture.
Tho proposition was voted down, and
since that the school board -has been
planning and contriving the best they
could for room until now they have
again come to the parting of the ways.
The question was whether to make an
expenditure of, say about $3,000 in ad
ditions to the First and Third ward
buildings, with perhaps a house, some
thing like the one-roomed frame build
ing in the Third ward to be put west of
the Meridian line or to put np one
It was proposed to do the first by a
levy; the last requires s vote' by the
people. Two members of the board,
Galley and Gondring, were in favor of
the former proposition. The other fonr
members, Becher, Gluck, Hockenberger
and Scott, favored the bond proposition,
and hence the people are asked to de
cide. It one of these fonr had been like
minded with the president of the board
anil Mr. Gondring, the board would
have been equally divided on the tiro
It ia now for the people to decide, and
of course, it is their business.
The proposition is to issue $25,000 in
bonds of the district, four and a half per
cent interest, running twenty years.
This would be $1,125" interest each year,
making for 20 years, $2200 interest, ia
addition" to the $25,000; total $47,500.
March 11, 1884, a proposition to issue
$25,000 for a like purpose was submitted
to the people and voted down; another
was immediately submitted for $12,000
and carried, the Second ward building
being the result, the two lots costing
$1,800, and the building $8,265.
The expenditure now proposed would
give at least an eight-room building,
and with the usual per centage of in
crease in the school- population of the
city, would probably accommodate the'
needs for the next ten years.
The Journal has no doubt but if the
bonds are VQted, the people will get the
full value of their money in a site, build
ing and furniture, and this is one of the
There is also no doubt but that, if the
bonds are not voted, the current levy
will be increased, and additional build
ings put up, to last' some three years
more, and another bond proposition will
again be inevitable, and there you are.
The majority of the board give this as
their solution of the problem, and we do
not doubt their fairness, their ability br
their integrity in the matter.
Individually, we are not prepared to
vote for the proposition, but we shall
express no word of sorrow if the proposi

Lyons Sun: A Nebraska farmer was
recently victimized by confidence men
in Chicago, who obtained from him
83,000 in cash and 82,000 in checks.
The police secured the return of his
money after a little trouble. It is only
a Nebraska farmer who goes galloping
around the country with 85,000 in his
pockets, but if 'he is wise he will stay
away from Chicago and invest in more
Osceola Record: It is not very often
that men live to be over one hundred
years old, but our friend, Charlie Dunn,
reported a case to us last week which is,
beyond all doubt, a true one. The per
son in question was Patrick Riley, of
Drumtone, Ireland, and Mr. Dunn was
well acquainted with him. He died on
January 4, at the age of 112 years. Hia
life, and death, are written up inCarvan,
(Ireland) News. It says in part, "He was
drawing turf at the age of 12, when he
distinctly heard the roar of cannon at
the battle of Ballinamuck, on the 8th of
September, 1798." The News mentions
fonr others who lately died in the same
neighborhood, all over 100 years old.
TJieee people lived in the place where
our friend Charlie Dunn was raised and
as knows this to be true.
