Last Saturday morning about six
o'clock Policeman Hagel discovered a
man lying on the cellar door in the rear
of Fred Schultz's saloon and boarding
bouse, and on going up to him and mak
ing and examination, discovered that he
was dead. Papers found on bim showed
that he was an old soldier and identified
him as James B. Palmer of Sidney, Neb.
Friday evening became to the hotel and
went to tbe room occupied by tbe brother-in-law
of tbe proprietor, August
Leuke, and laid down. Upon being ask
ed if be wanted to remain all night, he
said be had no money, but as it was
raining and storming, Mr. Schultz gave
him a bed for tbe night. It is supposed
that during tbe night he awakened and
went down stairs and when he reached
tbe cellar door, was stricken with an at
tack of heart trouble and fell down, and
expired. He carried a lamp with him,
and this was put out and broken by the
fall. Sheriff Carrig took charge of the
remains and wired the Sidney authori
ties, who requested that the body be sent
there. It was thought at first that be
might have fallen out of a second story
door, but when Undertaker Gass em
balmed the body there were no signs of
any bruises, showing that he had fallen.
When searching him, it was discovered
that all his pockets but one were turned
wrong side out, and that contained his
papers, $9 in money, and a ticket to Sid
ney, where he was shipped to Saturday
There is a public horror of cramps.
Not one case of cramps in 1,000 is dan
gerous if tbe victim knows what to do
and does it. Every long-distance swim
mer entering a race expects to get cramps
yet be doesn't drown and he doesn't
stop swimming either. He keeps going
until his legs are in knots; still, he does
n't sink. He plugs along until there
isn't another kiok in him, and even now
he doesn't go down. Instead of that be
rolls over on his back and waits for tbe
boat to pick him up. It may be a min
ute or it may be an hour, but until tbe
boat comes the expert will be floating
around like a chip. When you get a
cramp in your arms or legs don't get ex
cited. You may yell, but keep yourself
under control. Don't exert yourself for
it takes little or no effort to keep afloat.
Crush down tbe feeling of panic. Stret
ch ont your arms or leg, as the case may
be, until you are straining to the ut
most. Then strain a bit harder, and
watch the lumped mucle go down. The
dangerous cramp is in the stomach.
When that takes you your breath goes,
and you're not able to shout for help or
even to articulate a sound. When you
get that kind of cramp you may as well
say yonr prayers, but you won't get it if
you don't eat for two hours before going
into the water. Professional swimmers
go hungry half a day before entering a
race, and they never know such a thing
as a stomach cramp.
A young man named O'Neill, who
came from Platte Center several weeks
ago to fill the position of local manager
for tbe Horde Elevator Co... has drop
ped suddenly out of sight. Monday of
last week he asked an acquaintance to
take charge of the elevator during his
absence, stating that he bad business to
transact at Columbus and would return
on tbe next train. He has not re
turned. After waiting two days the man
who had been left in charge of the eleva
tor phoned the general manager of the
company at Central City and informed
of O'Neill's disappearance, and one, of
the company's men was sent here to take
temporary charge of the business. It
appears that O'Neill has been retailing

Saturday night tbe carnival company
closed their engagement end left Mon
day for Grand Island. There was some
talk of attachments in fact, there were
two gotten out late Saturday night,
but they were satisfactorily taken care
of and the company departed for their
next engagement with the hope that
they would encounter better weather.
Plans for the remodelled or new Bur
lington depot in this city have been sub
mitted to the Chicago officials, and un
til they decide on the matter, nothing
definite will be known. However, those
who are in a position to know, say that
it is only a question of time until an im
provement of that kind will be made,
and an effort is being put forth to make
it something that will be a credit to the
city as well as the road.
Work of ballasting tbe remaining
double track between this city and Sil
ver Creek is practically completed, only
about one hundred additional cars of
gravel being needed to complete the
work so the track can be placed in ser
vice. Work on the double track bridge'
across tbe Loup has been progressing
slowly, and it will be some time before it
will be put into service. In the mean
time the company will put in a switch at
each end of the bridge and place a switch
tender at each, so there will be no delay
to trains on account of tbe single track
across the bridge.
Just what will be done in base ball
circles has not been decided by the Fire
men's league, and another meeting will
be held to finally settle the matter. The
boys feel that the patronage accorded
them for the games they put up was not
what it should have been, as their play-
ing Has neen exceptionally gouu mm
year, and whether to disband the league
and form a department team to meet all
outside teams, is the question that will
be settled within the next week. The
boys have gone to considerable expense
and are working bard to make tbe league
a success, and should receive tbe Bupport
of the citizens.
Now that the supreme court has up
held the lower court in declaring uncon
stitutional the amended portion of the
new primary law that places the county
judge and the county superintendent on
a non-partisan ticket, Judge Ratterman
and F. S. Lecron have filed for the dem
ocratic nomination for these offices.
And in this county the privilege of doing
that means something to the candidate,
for as non-partisan candidates they did
not stand nearly as good a show of elec
tion as they will when their names
appear on the regular democratic ballot,
and as a result both of these candidates
wear a smile, as they think things are
coming better since the decision.
Sometime Monday night burglars
broke into the Johannes & Krumland
grocery and hardware store and helped
themselves to a supply of pocket knives
and razors. Entrance was effected by
climbing up tbe wire netting at the east
south entrance and cutting the screen
over the transom, which was open at
night, but there is a light in the front of
tbe building so that part is protected.
As the store has been robbed before, Mr.
Krumland does cot have the cutlery
handy for anyone breaking in, and this
accounts for tbe small haul made by the
thieves about $65. They opened every
pocket knife box they could find, but
overlooked one containing $200 worth of
knives. Tbe police have been unable to
get any clue as to who tbe perpetrators
were, but it is thought they were some
hard looking characters who were in tbe
-Platte river bridges has been the main
topic for riiectuuion during their two
days' session this week. The first one
for their consideration was a proposed
bridge over the Platte at Duncan, to be
built Hy Polk county and Itutler town
ship, together. This has been before the
board before, and it was intended to ar
range for advertising for bids at this ses
sion of the board, but tbe contractssent
over by tbe Polk county people did not
meet with tbe approval of the supervi
sors and tbey were amended and return
ed to Polk county. The board is going
careful in this matter, and when the
bridge is finally built tbey want tbe in
terests of Platte county fully protected.
The other Platte bridge proposition was
up for their consideration Wednesday,
it being tbe present bridge south of the
city. The supervisors took a trip out to
the river and looked over the bridge and
then came back to the city and are dis
cussing the matter. Tbe bridge is in
such condition that something will have
to be done, or else tbe thoroughfare
closed, for, as one of the supervisors ex
pressed himself, it will be either nail up
the bridge or pay damages when an ac
cident occurs, which is liable to at any
time. Before the board adjourns this
time it is quite probable that some defin
ite action will be taken and the position
of the county board in the matter made
clear. Whether anything is done or not
it 4s very evident that the condition of
the bridge means it will be closed until
the necessary repairs are made.
NAL WILL BE BUILT
Main Contract Let and Arrange
for Financing Completed.
Omaha Sunday dailies contained tbe
following good news regarding the build
ing of tbe Power Canal, and a favorable
fall construction will probably be com
menced this year: '
During a visit to the city yesterday of
William L. Church, president of the Am
bureau Hydraulic Construction eompaay
of Boston, and William F. Cox, financial
agent for the same concern, announce
ment was made that all necessary details
have been completed to assure tbe con
struction of the Loup river power plant
at Columbus with a capacity of 60,000
horse power and a secondary plant at
Schuyler with a capacity of 30,000 horse
This announcement was repeated by
Mr. Cburob, Mr. Fox, Johu A. Wakefield
secretary and treasurer of tbe Nebraska
Power company, and by F. Jaeggi, who
has for a number of years been represent
ing a syndicate of Swiss stockholders,
who owned tbe water rights, in an effort
to' float securities and finance the power
Dlant undertaking. It is contained also
in a report of H. E. Babcock, president
of the Nebraska Power company, to bis
board pf directors, made public yester
day. Mr. Babcock himself is out of the
city at the present time.
According t4he statements of the
above authorities the Ambursen Hy
draalio construction company has not
only signed a contract to construct tbe
plant, but has completed negotiations to
finance the project. Under tbe terms of
tbe contract tbe construction company
assumes control and responsibility fori
building and equipping tbe plant com
plete for operation.
Mr. Church said that he expects to be
able to let subcontracts for the prelimin
ary construction work by October 1.
He figures that the plant can be com
pleted with transmission lines at the
doors of the city of Omaha ready to de
liver power in from eighteen months to
two years after work is commenced.
Both Mr. Jaeggi and Mr. Wakefield
declared yesterday that tbe Ambursen
Hydraulio construction company is a
concern of high standiBg.both financial
ly and its achievements in similar pro
jects. Mr. Church, president of the
company, was forbears one of the mem
bers, of thWestingbooee, vChureb,
Kerr company of New York city, one of
the biggest and strongest construction
concerns in the country. The Ambursen
company, it is stated in Mr. Babcock's
report, has built fcrty-six dams and
plants similar to that proposed for the
Nebraska Power company, and have not
yet been credited with a failure to put
through that which they have under
taken. Under the terms of tbe contract, as
stated by Mr. Jaeggi, the Swiss promot
ers deliver over to the Ambursen Hy
draulic construction company $8,000,000
of bonds in tbe Nebraska Power com
pany, retaining $4,000,000 of stock, rep
resenting the value of the water rights
owned by them and the -work already
done in ditch construction to hold these
rights. This work represents an outlay
of some $300,000 in ditch construction,
originally for irrigation purposes, and in
the expense of engineering investiga
tions into the power plant feasibility.
The construction company undertakes
to raise all tbe money required to com
plete the construction of the plant and
Mr. Cox, the financial agent, says that
this has already been done A syndicate
of Boston bankers, it is said, baa agreed
to advance the money to construct the
It has been figured that something in
the neighborhood of $4,000,000 will be
needed to construct the first plant and
around $3,000,000 to put the second
plant in operation.

load of hogs now days brings $125.
Last week the farmers had plenty
of time to go fishing or anything else, as
it rained seven days in a row. but as it
wound up tbe last days of the week by
breaking the corn down, so it is hard
telling if we can plow it the third time or
not, Wheat is ready to cut, it stands up
except in low places but that is a very
small percent. Oats what there ia of it
here is good and it seems to be entirely
free from rust.
