Tuesday afternoon of last week an
accident happened that might very easily
by a hairs-breadth have been a very ser

it is very much hoped that it may prove
a lasting lesson to them. The boys,
James O'Brien and Chester Ernst, were
playing, the latter having a pistol in
hand supposed not to be loaded, but it
was. and a 22-calibre bullet struck young
O'Brien in the right eye. but, as it seems,
not seriously injuring the sight. He
was taken to Omaha to- be under the

The subject of the Review of Re
views' character sketch for January is
Secretary John Hay, who by reason of
the death of Yice-Preeident Hobart be
comes the successor apparent to the
presidency. The writer of the sketch is
Mr. Henry Macfarland, the well-known
Washington eorraspoadent, who makes
it clear that few men in public life to
day have had so good a training for the
presidency as Mr. Hay has received in
the thirty-nine years that have passed
since he became Lincoln's private sec
retary. The new militia company being or
ganized by Major "v1"" is being rapidly
recruited, and we understand that at the
meeting Friday night of this week the
organization now having a membership
of 45 men will be completed. Several
members of old Co. K, who saw service
in the Philippines, have associated them
selves with the new company and will
prove quite an aid to the new organiza
tion in the way of maneuvering, etc If
ever occasion presents itself, the boys
will no doubt show up in as good shape
as its predecessor.
Almost everybody is just now dis
cussing the question -When does the
Twentieth century begin?" An ex
change gives this line of argument: "A
letter written on the first day of the
First century would have baen dated
January L 1, not January 1. 0; 100 years
most have elapsed before the beginning
of the Second century, hence a letter
written 100 years later would have been
dated January 1, 101; repeat this opera
tion eighteen times and it will be found
that a letter written on the first day of
the Twentieth century must be dated

Lieutenant J. C. Gilmore of the
United States gunboat Yorktown. who
was captured by the insurgents last
April near Baler, on the east coast of
Luzon, and rescued a few days ago by
CoL Hare, on Sunday sat in the hotel
Oriente, Manila, and told in detail the
remarkable story of his eight months in
captivity, which farmed two columns of
the most interesting telegraphic news in
the United States dailies of Monday.
Among the items we note that C. A.
Morrissey, with J. Dillon, another lands
man, were instantly killed in the en
gagement at Baler. Mr. Morrissey was
born in this city, the son of Mr. and Mrs.
J. C. Morrissey, now of Lincoln.
We are in receipt of a copy of the
Fremont Daily Tribune illustrated Sugar
and Holiday edition, issued December
25, 1899. The four pages of the cover
are printed in colors on fine book paper,
the inside 36 pages taken up with illus
trations and write-up of the sugar beet
and other industries of Fremont and
Dodge county. The publication is a
great and lasting- credit to the office from
which it emanates and will doubtless
prove decidedly the best advertisement
ever sent out from that thriving city.
The typographical appearance of the
publication is perfect, and must have
cost the Hammond Bros, hundreds of

Wednesday was Patsy Carroll's day
for a mishap. He was hauling a mon

nearO. McGans'a. the left hind wheel
of his wagon collapsed. Mr. McGann
assisted him as best he could. They
sought to put the lead upon another
wagon and rack, but when loaded, the
original load seemed nearly as large as
ever, so they procured the second wagon
with rack and filled that. Now about
one-half load of hay remained on the
original wagon, which they threw upon
the ground, and it took Patsy and a
strong team all of the next day to haul
the hay into the city. Moral: wNever
