A few days ago Count Telstoi said to

William Spate Suddenly Faces Death
by a Ruthina Ewfiae.
This community was shocked Monday
morning on learning that one of ita
oldest citizens had been fatally injured
by being struck by an engine attached
to a through freight train on the Union
Pacific, the accident taking place on L
street, about six feet west of the side
walk, the body striking the graveled
earth, just south of the main-line track,
and from appearances of effects upon
the left side of the head and left shoul
der, death was caused by the hard fall
and the dragging. The scalp was torn
from the skull, and the clothing from
the shoulder, on the left side of the
bodjv Our best information is that
while walking near the track (be was
exceedingly hard of bearing) not being
aware of a train near, in making a atop
to cross the track he was picked up by
the pilot, and for a moment stood upon
it, on the north side (the engine was
going eastward), and then by a sudden
jerk was whirled to the ground on the
south side of the engine. The spot is
very close to where Mrs. Disohner was

two blocks south on the same street,
but the spirit had left ita mortal tene
ment Coroner Metz, who arrived at noon
from Humphrey, summoned a jury con
sisting of Messrs. Held, Gluck, Roen,
Asche, Funk and J. Greisen, who after
hearing the testimony of Wm. Boraman,
Mrs. Charles Ball and daughter, Miss
Florence Ball, Peter Greisen, Louis
Petsch and L. Merriman gave their ver
dict that, between the hours of 8 and 9
o'clock a. m., July 29, William Speioe
came to his death accidentally by being
struck by a Union Pacific engine.
The funeral services are to be held at
the residence this morning at 10 o'clock,
Rev. Weed officiating.
William Speioe was born in Chester
county, Pennsylvania, May 18, 1823.
He came to Nebraska abont thirty
four years ago, and this has virtually
been the home of himself and wife ever
since. They resided temporarily, a short
time, in the Black Hills and in Califor
nia. Within the past year they cele
brated their golden wedding. A boy
and a girl were born to them, but did
not survive childhood. The widow sur
vives to mourn the loss of a true and
faithful companion. Deceased was an
elder brother of Judge C. A. Speice,
well known to many Journal readers.
William Speice was a man who prob
ably had no enemies. He attended
strictly and conscientiously to his own
affairs, and was highly respected by all
who knew him. While thoroughly un
obtrusive, he was true and faithful, and
his hut utterance "Oh God! Lift me
up," let us believe, is now fully answered
by his presence in the Land of the Leal.
A SUPERB HORSE DBPUkT.
Flv Hnadnd Harass EsUnlted with
i. Great thaws.
Ringing Brothers have five hundred
magnificent horses, and they will be seen
with the big show when it exhibits in
Columbus, Saturday Aug. 10. These
superb animals represent many years of
careful selection by expert horse buyers
and breeders, and the expenditure of
many thousands of dollars. Every kind
of high-bred equine is represented, from
the smallest Shetland pony and the
proudest Kentucky thoroughbred to the
pure Arabian stallion and the most
massive Shire and Percberon. It is from
the Utter strain that the draught horses
are taken. There are two hundred and
eighty of there magnificent animals, and
they form one of the most striking and
effeotive features of the imperial free
street parade. They are utilized for
drawing the massive dens, cages and
tableau cars, and are the subject of con
stant comment and limitless admiration.
The ring horses number one hundred
lithe, shapely, proudly-stepping thor
oughbreds. Every horse among them
has a famous pedigree. They are the
perfection of equine form and trained
intelligence. The trick horses number
sixty-five matched and thoroughly train
ed American and imported animals. An
equal number of Shetland ponies, the
delight of the children, and the cynosure
of all eyes in the parade, in the gorgeous
spectacular entry or the mammoth horse
fair, complete tnie remarkable and un
equalled display of fine stock. These
horses are presented in a -hundred dif
ferent performances. There is the gor
geous equestrian entry; the numerous
principal riding acta, which serve to
introduce Miss Amelia FasJey, the great
est, rider that the world has ever produc
ed, and twenty-nine other famous lady
and gentleman riders; O'Brien's wonder
ful sixty-one hone act, in which this
notable school of horses perform to
gether in one ring, at one time, under
the direction of one man; Mme. Noble,
the most famous of all high-class menage
riders and her handsome thoroughbred,
Jupiter; and a series of thrilling and
hotly-contested hippodrome noes, in
which the blood and speed and sterlinc
staying qualities of the great racing stud
are put to a successful test In addition
to the magnificent array of high-class
acts that serve to exhibit Bingling
Brothers' superb stock to such signal
advantage, there is a a great three-ring
circus performance, utilizing theservices
of three hundred high-salaried artists; a
aeries of trained animal displays, includ

Ed. Journal: Having recently re
turned from a trip to the famous mining
camp of Cripple Greek, Cola, where I
was in attendance as a delegate to the
Trans-Mississippi Commercial Congress
that met there on the 16th and adjourn
ed on the 20th inst, I thought perhaps
the readers of The Journal might be
interested in hearing something of this
wonderful mining camp and the coun
try surrounding it.
In journeying towards the west after
leaving the great grain fields of Nebras
ka, the traveler is ushered into what is
known as the "cow and sheep country"
which extends almost from North Platte
to Denver. This vast territory is dotted
all over with large herds of cattle, horses
and sheep; there are very few towns of
any importance from North Platte to
Denver, and the 197 miles from Jules
burg to Denver has but one town of
about 1.000 people. When one reaches
the Colorado capitol he meets with a
different country. Arriving there in the
morning the writer naturally was anx
ious to see the great city of the west,
and after breakfast took the electric car
over what is known as the "observation
line," where the passenger rides 27 miles
through all the prominent streets of the
city for 25 cents. This is well wor(b
ten times the charge and should not be
missed by parties visiting Denver.
After leaving Denver over the Colo
rado Southern for Colorado Springs, the
weary traveler ia refreshed by the cool
air from the snow-topped mountains
piercing the skies, a Titantio sentinel
among the Titans, is Pike's Peak, which
can be seen 100 miles away, and whose
snow-capped summit was anxiously
watched for by the early Argonauts
whose slogan was "Pike's Peak or Bust"
in the daya of '59. Along this road one
is awakened with a feeling of awe and
veneration at the scenery which he ia
drawing closer to at every turn of the
wheel, passing tnrougn many thrifty
towns nestled olose up to the foot of
these mountains, one can see thousands
of people from every section of the coun
try enjoying the cool mountain air,
fishing, hunting, etc ..
Upon arriving in Colorado Springs the
tourist sees one of the most beautiful
little cities in the west with its fine
shade trees, parks, wide clean streets,
and fine residences. There are no side
walks in this city, as the whole city is
paved by nature and one can just aa well
walk in the center of the street as on the
sides. " Colorado Springs is known as the
"City of Millionaires1 and is said to be
the wealthiest city of its size in the
Union. We were told by a friend that
it was not fashionable to be in more than
ordinary circumstances any more as the
millionaires were so thick they were
considered too common.
On leaving Colorado Springs we took
the new railroad known as the short line
over the mountains to Cripple Creek, a
distance of 45 miles by rail, but only 15
miles by air line. This road over these
high mountains ia one of the most won
derful pieces of railroad engineering in
the country. After leaving Colorado
Springs yon start up into the sir at the
rate of four feet to the hundred, or bet
ter known as a four per cent grade, we
rode for two and one half hours and
seemed to be np over the top of the city
we naa ten, ana m mating ine nrteen
miles one goes np something like five
thousand feet before he reaches Cripple
Creek, and at the highest point you are
over 14,000 feet above sea level It is
vary cool going over this route and a
good warm suit waa not out of place,
wnlM the people or rveorasga ware trying
every soneme so ansa ineiraiouMS. The
grand scenery on this road can only be
pictured by seeing it To try to explain
its beauties, and the wonderful works of
nature would take more time' and space
than yon could give aueh a subject.- I
will say however, that should any of the
ramArm at Tnar nrmr mp an A fViln
Irado they cannot afford to miss this
most wonderful trip.
Upon arriving in Cripple Creek V
found a well built city of about ib0OO
people, nne pared streets, and toe best
lighted city in the west Every one
seems to be busy, and there is plenty of
money always on hand. I bad the pleas
ure of seeing a real gold brick in the
window of one of the prominent drug
stores. I looked at it a while through
the window and I must confess it looked
good to me. -1 concluded it would make
a-nice thing to bring home and tell Link
Lee and H. J. Alexander that I got it
Lout of the Beaver mine at Grand En-
csmpmenf o-I ventured in to ask the
owner what waa the least he would take
1 and 1st me put it in my grip and take it
home, ne gently informed me that it
would cost me $7,600 (all cash) to get the
brick. I did not bay it. Cripple Creek
has ao such a thing as Sunday, every
thing is run wide open on that day as
well as any day in the week. The people
know no Sabbath, nor can they distin
guish the tones of a church bell from the
sound of a dinner gong.
When I reached this 'Golden City" I
found the place pecked with people from
every state west of the Mississippi, and
it was estimated that there were over
70.000 visitors in Cripple Creek during
the week of the Commercial Congress.
The city was decorated throughout with
the national colors, the bands played
"There'll be a hot time in Cripple Creek
Tonight," and everything was "push and
jam." The meeting of the Congress waa
called to order at the time set and nearly
every state in the northwest waa well
represented. The object of this Trans
Mississippi Commercial Congress is
principally for the building up of the
commercial interests of the states west
of the Mississippi river, and among the
principal questions taken up at this
meeting were. Semi-arid regions. Water
ways and Harbors. Pacific Cable, Trade
.with the Orient, Beet Sugar Industry,
Encouragement of Home Industry,
Relation of Live stock interests to the
Good roads and drainage, oil fields,
irrigation and many other questions re
lating to the interests of the western
states. This was the twelfth session of
the congress, the first session being held
in Galveston; the next session will be
held at St Paul and Minneapolis. Minn.,
in the summer of 1902, and as the object
of this congress is to promote the ma
terial advancement of the western half
of the nation, and as such, it is regarded
as a tremendous factor in voicing the
sentiments and advocating the welfare
of the western portion of our republic. I
have no doubt but the meeting at the
Minnesota capital will be one of the
largest ever held by the organization.

It is a means of curing diseases, with
out the use of drugs or the knife, by
using the hands to remove any pressure
on the nerves, arteries and veins, so that
the circulation of the fluids and gases of
the body will be restored to a normal
condition. It is based on a knowledge
of the anatomy, physiology and chem
istry of the human body. Osteopathy
cures all curable diseases.
The suspensory treatment cures curva
tures and all abnormalities of the spine,
when all other methods fail. This device
is something new, and we would be glad
to have those who have spinal troubles
call and investigate this new treatment.
