Joseph, the fourteen year old son of
Anton Svitak, met with a serious accid
ent in the Union Pacific yards in David
City Monday morning. Young Svitak
wae in some way thrown under a moving
freight train and both legs cut off just
below the knee. There was no witnea
to the accident, and it is not known just
how it happened, but it is presumed he
attempted to board the train while it was
moving. He was taken to the hospital
where he died at noon. His mother,
who has been ill for some time previous
with internal trouble, died the same day.
Before her death, we learn that she was
informed of her son's death.

and reported that be had finished gath
ering his corn. He had one hundred
and ten acres and it averaged a little bet
ter than forty bushels per acre. He and
his boys did it all.
The news reaches us of the arrival of a
son at the home Mr. and Mrs. Dan Rior
don, of Beaver Crossing. This is their

Wednesday with a number of canary
birds for sale. He disposed of them all
in a short time. Denny .Roberts took
four of them. By the way, Denny's new
cottage in the southwest part of town is
nearly completed. We will endeavor to
keep the public posted on matters along
this line as fast as they develop.
John Maher received notification last
week that he had drawn a homestead in
the Tripp county drawing last month
The delay in the notice reaching him
was caused by its being addressed to a
postoffice in New York and being held
there for some time to expire when it
could be returned to the sender. The
number of the claim is 3992, and Jobc
says when the time come he is going up
there acd see what he can find.

John Hallatz died very suddenly
Tuesday morning of this week at his
home near St. Anthony's church, the
cause of which is thought to have been
heart failure. The deceased was 84
years old and had lived in the St. Anth
ony neighborhood for a number of years.
The funeral was held from St. Anthony's
church yesterday forenoon and the re-
mains were laid to rest in the cemetery
near the church. "

Mrs. Mary Kirkland, which ocourred at
her home in Chicago last Thursday.
The remains were shipped to Omaha,

Humphrey for a number of years and she
had many friends here who will be sorry
to bear of her death.

be present with the 'Governor General

noon. The day was hot and she be
came thirsty, so she went to a nearby
cottage and asked for a drink of
water. The mistress of the house was
ironing., "I would, gladly give you a
drink," she said, "but I have no water
in the house and I haven't time to go
to get it, for I'm ironing a dress for my
daughter to wear this afternoon when
she goes to see the queen's daughter."
"Then," said the queen's daughter, '(if
you will get me the water I will go on
with the ironing."

want to be suffragists. and citizens Just
