reporter is trying to be conservative in
this prophecy, but for fear that some

add that it may not be as soon as that.

About the first thing that comes to

Because of its health giving qualities, it

The term "old maid" is fast dying out

hear of "the sour old maids," hut in
stead the "dear bachelor girls." The
young men ascertain that she is just
the one to go to when they are in trou

of devoted consecration to the right.

Just before 5 o'clock Wednesday the
Union Pacific depot took fire from an
unknown cause and in a few minutes the
roof was a mass of llamee. With the
heavy wind blowing from the south,
and the depot being situated south of
the main part of town, it looked for a
time as though it wonld be a heavy loss.
But thanks to the water works and the
fire company, plenty of water was avail
able and the boys soon had two streams
pla ing on the flames. It took but a few
minutes to get the fire under control,
and it was not even necessary to throw
water on the hotel bnilding. The fire
started inside of the bnilding and burned
through the roof, when it whs discov
ered, nnd the main damage was to the
roof and also to the interior by water.
When the blaze started Agent Ledbetter
was up in town collecting freight bills.
What might have resulted if there had
been no fire protection is not pleasant to
contemplate, but as this is the first fire
since the water plant was installed,
everyone feels that it has more than
paid for its cost in protection.

Last week Henry Barjenbrnck closed J
a deal whereby he sold to Wm. Brunken
40 acres of the Korte land, northwest of
town, for $125 per acre. The land con
tains no improvements whatever, not
even a fence.
We were informed by a man who has
80 acres of winter wheat (which looked
as nice as any we ever saw, last fall)
that the cold weather damaged it to a
very great extent and when it was covered
deeply with snow it literally rotted.
Others who sowed later say there will not
be half a stand.
The remains of Mrs. Eoline Johnson,
who passed away in an Omaha hospital
on Wednesday of last week, were brought
to this place on Thursday evening and
funeral services were conducted at the

Interment was made in the Leigh ceme

Friday and on his return home. Sunday
he was accompanied by his wife who has
spent several months in a hospital at

remain for a time to assist in the care of
Mrs. Scbnrr who is still very weak from
the operations which she has undergone.

Neglect or pessimism, wc believe, is
the greatest enemy the public has to con
tend with when applied to the loss or
recovery of health. Practically every
case of consumption might have been
cured if hope bad been maintained and
proper treatment had been resorted to
at the first symptom of the disease. Un
til the advanced stage is reached con

medy that goes direct to the scat of trou

follows: The prinaipal personage is
John Brne.ster, hotel man and good fel
low. Bruester is an out-and-out Ameri

lows that the convention then in session
is likely to nominate him for congress
While his friends are yelling at the men
tion of his name he is notified that be is
the lineal descendant of Lord Brueater
and heir to the title and estates. The
entire thing is a joke to the old fellow.
What, give up congress and all that the
position meanB? Not on your life!
But the property is considerable, no
sane man would let it go by, and the re
sult is that much against his will Brae
stcr agrees to goto England and look
after his estates. His son falls in love
with a young English girl, .and be finds
himself, at this time of life, too, feeling
uneasy in the presence of a fine Irish

The origin of the bath chair is
"wropt iu mystery. We are told

chair Is con lined chiefly to invalids.

The .Manehus resemble the Chinese
