ltev. J. E. Elliott, who went east last
week, showed us on Saturday a com
plete ini nature Indian lodge with all the
paraphernalia. 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.

of John Marthis, who reside on 6th and

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. In tbe years that be had been in
business here he has stood at tbe very
top in point of business ability, clear in
sight into every detail of tbe successful
man of business. 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. Holliday left Sat
urday morning for Nebraska City, where
Mrs. Holliday will visit her parents for
one month. From there Mr. Holliday
will go to Illinois for a few weeks' visit

for the past thirteen years. Mr. Holliday
has been manager of tbe Nebraska Tele
phone exchange in this city for the past
four or five years and has never enjoyed
a vacation of any length. In the absen
ce of Mr. and Mrs. Holliday several tem
porary changes have been made in the

There will be thousands of ladies and

L. H. North returned from tbe east
Sunday morning, where he has been
attending tbe race meets with Black
