The Omaha World-Herald of Sept.
28, has the following paragraph concern
ing a former Columbus citizen: "From

Dave Anderson believes the fruit farms
near Galveston, Tex., are completely de
stroyed. Mr. Anderson says that bis
two farms are entirely barren so far as
the fruit crop is concerned, snd that
hundreds of cords of wood hsve been
washed upon his land and left. Other
fruit farms in that locality are entirely
destroyed, and the only thing left to
mark the once beautiful groves are the
tree stumps where they once stood.

south of Schuyler in Butler county, who
accidentally shot himself last spring and

along cicely and his chances for recovery
were good. But a few weeks ago he be
came worse snd was taken to the hos
pital, where it was found that a large
artery had been ruptured by the shot
and a pool of blood bad formed around
the opening. Nothing could be done
for him so he was brought home to await
the inevitable.

weight will have to be "cracker jacks"
to down them. The game was quite in
teresting from start to finish. The f ea
tares of the game were the long runs
made by Havens of Fremont and the
tackling of Capt Neumarker for our
boys. Young Coolidge was also in the
game at the right time, barring a few
knock-outs of short duration. All the
boys came out whole and were royally
treated by the Fremont boys. W.

abroad, while its opponent (the demo

home, and shame to Americans a'broad.
