A professor of Amherst Col'ege, Mass., baa requested Mr. Elliott to stmd him some specimens of the Paw nee life, uud Mr. Elliott thinks be can not take a better specimen than this which he had prepared. The lodge is two feet in diameter and one foot high, and is exactly proportioned, and built of the aiue materials which the Pawnees una. The little mats were made by the Indians, together with a buffalo bead, cut out of stone; Mr. Peter Duffy con tributing a tiny tomahawk with a pipe bundle. The lodge contains minature sacks of eqnaw corn, etc, the cooking apparatus, the mortar, the beds, the bhriue, the steaming appartus, toy pa pooses, etc. It must have taken a good deal of work on Mr. Elliott's part, to prepare this gift to his alma mater, and he could certainly present no better il lustration of Indian life.

Olaf Hanson, aged 40, residing on a farm north of Monroe, committed sui cide last Friday afternoon bf shooting himself. Shortly after eating his dinner, Hanson took his shot gun and went to tbe barn where he loaded the weapon. About 4 o'clock he fastened the gun in the bottom of his buggy with a piece of wire attached to tbe trigger in suoh a manner that by pulling it the gun could be discharged. After all preparations had been made, Hanson stepped to the rear of the buggy, and placing his left breast against tbe muzzel of the gun and grasping the wire with bis hand, called his wife to step to the door a mo ment. Tbe supposition is that he de sired his wife to witness bis rash act, but when he called she was busy and did not at once respond. Evidently Hanson got tired of waiting for bis wife to come and see him die, and pulled the wire. The charge from the gun entered his body near the heart and he died al most instantly. An inquest was held and a verdict returned in accordance with the facts given above. Hanson had been considerably depressed owing to busi ness trouble and some of his friends bad remarked that hu mental condition was not exaotlv right. Funeral services were held Sunday and tbe remains interred in the Quaker cemetery west of Monroe. Deceased leaves a wife and three child ren. For a long time it was evident to tbe casual observer that Dr. Edward John son had a longing for the banking busi ness.

Always a money mak er and a money saver, it will not be a surprise to those who intimately know him that he has decided on the course above outlined. He will be missed from tbe business life of this city with which he bas been so closely identified lor a quarter of a century. The good people of Columbus have certainly gained two men that Fullerton would rather not have spared. The Fullerton National was started by A. B Miller on June 1st, 1900 with a capital of 925,000, and in eight years that he has been here he baa seen it grow until today it reacnes a business of a quarter of a million dollars. Mr. Miller may well feel proud of the record he leaves in Fullerton. Always kind, courteous and obliging, be is an ideal banker. Our people are loth to lose such men from our business world and regret that the wheel of time has taken them from this place. News Journal. Mr. and Mrs. O. W.
