It is a little strange to eee timid passen
gers on the U. P. cars shrink at the sight
of tame eqaaws that oome up and ask
them for paupeechea.
Messrs. Turner & Hulst of this place
have 270 sheep nnder the care of G. D.
Qrant. They have completed shearing
and the estimated average per fleece is
not less than Ave pounds. The shearer
the other day was handling one of
the sheep and remarked its light
weight, saying he didn't believe it
would weigh more than thirty poands,
but it sheared live and three-fourth
pounds of excellent wool.
The house where Mr. Nich Speilman
lives north of Shell Greek, was struck by
lightning on Monday night of last week
splitting the house, going through the
wall like a cannon ball, striking a pair of
side bars, and running into the ground.
A cat under the bed on which Mr. S.as
lying was killed, and a dog outside the
house met the same fate, but, strange
to say, none of the five persons in the
house were hurt, though Mr. S. was
strongly charged with electricity.

All the latest shades and
Sip Writias a Socially
Now Unit school is out. ihejiciping
of train by small boys is rapidly be
coming a nnixHucft Every day a uuin
ber of buys iuke practice of taking a
ride oc the freights as they go through
town, and. the narrow escapes from being
ground under the wheels are numerous.
Not long ago a little fellow undertook to
board a train which was going at a great
er speed than he anticipated, and he
could not retain bis hold on the ladder
being thrown clear across another track.
Fortunately for him he was thrown away
from the train, otherwise there would
have been a coroner's inquest. Some
time ago a number of these boys were
taken in and given a good talking to,
and for awhile they refrained from the
pastime of hopping trains. But as their
companions still continue the practice,
it will be a short time until they are at it
again. TLe last legislature passed a law
calculated to put a stop to boys jumping
trains, and in self defense the company
is going to take vigorous action in the
matter, as should one of them fall under
the wheels it "would mean a big damage
suit, all through the negligence of the
parents and the boys. And it seems
strange, but it is a fact, that parents
will resent punishment of their children
by railroad .employes, when they are
caught on trains. About the only reme
dy that will stop this juming on trains
is a trip to the police court, and those
who like to enjoy a ride on freights had
better take warning, as it will come to
this sooner than they expect.
While The State Journal has been one
of the leading papers of the state for
nearly forty years, yet its most rapid
growth has been recently, during which
time it has come to be recognized by
many as neorasaas greatest paper,
making most of things that interest Ne-
braskans most, in this way creating a
place for itself in the daily life of thou
sands of Nebraska homes. The country
press generally could be quoted aa say
ing that the ediEorial page of The Jour
nal is exceptionally strong and fearlessly
independent. It is also unusally bright,
Bixby himself being a gem. No writer
in Nebraska ever had the warm admira
tion of so many people as Bixby. His
column in The Journal is alone worth
the price of the paper. Bis wholesome
philosophy will put sunshine and cheer
into the most chronic grouch. The state
university, the state house and all the
other public institutions at Lincoln
mase xne journal peculiarly a paper
for state people. It is clean, excluding '
.ltiimW .h ;mn m;.i .au t
ing. Its sporting department is olever
and there with the goods. More money
is spent for state telegraphic news than
by other state dailies. If you want to
known what is happening in Nebraska,
as well as the whole world, The Lincoln
Journal is the paper for you. Why not
give it this trial subscription?
Word received by Columbus friends
tells of the death of D. N. Miner on
May 30, at the home of his con, Cbas. T.
Miner at 415 Vine street. Kansas City,
Mo. Funeral services were held on
June 2. Mr. Miner was a resident of
this city for a good many years, and
from here he went to Council Bluffs, go
ing to the home of his son a short time
ago, where he died. Mr. Miner was born
Nov. 28, 1838, at Unity.ColumbianB coun
ty, Chio. He enlisted in Company H,
Fifteenth Ohio Volunteer Infantry
September 7. 18G1, was discharged and
re enlisted as a veteran volunteer, serv
ing in all four years and eleven months.
His enlistment was at Van Wert. Ohio
He returned from the war and married
Cora A. Crumrin. In June, 1871. they
came to Columbus with their five mon
ths' old babe, now Mrs. Fred McMulIen.
Other children were Charles now living
in Kansas Oity, Mrs. 31 elvin Dotson and
Mrs. Harvey Farrel!, of Council Bluffs,
and George, who is with his mother in
the same city. Mr. Miner had been in
poor health 8,11 last winter, due to old
age, and while he seemed to get better
with the approaching warm weather, he
did not regain strength. Old soldiers
acted as pall bearers at his funeral, and
members of the army of the Philippines
took part in the exercises at the grave.
While fishing in a pond near the Loup
river last Wednesday afternoon, Frank
Schemmerhorn discovered a complete
outfit of children's clothing, including a
pair of shoes, in the edge of the water.
They bad evidently been worn by a girl
of about twelve to fourteen years old,
and the wearer was of a well to-do fam
ily. Thinking that someone bad been
drowned, Mr. Schemmerhorn brought
the clothing to town and turned it over
to 8heriff Carrig, who caused a thorough
search of the pond to be made by drag
ging. Nothing rewarded this search,
however, but authorities are still en
deavoring to locate the owner of the
clothing and clear up the mystery.
Some say that a band of gypsies, which
passed through the city Tuesday, left
the clothing there in order to cover up
the idenity of some child they had stolen
while others are inclined to think that
some littlegirl was bathing in the pond,
and when the man unexpectedly appeared
bid in the buBhes and remained there
until nightfall and returned home. If
someone was drowned is the pond, and
there are places or a depth that the drag
netwasmnable to reach, the body will
rise to surface within the next few days.
Aa effort to learn of a missing child in
this locality has been unavailing, and this
makes the finding of the clothes
of a mystery.
