The charge of bigamy filed against
Othello M. Evans, the Grand Ieland con
tractor, was dismissed by County Attor
ney Ross last Friday. At the hearing
for the annulment of the marriage in
Grand Island the district judge entered
a decree finding that Evans was of
unsound mind at the time he was mar
ried to Miss Gorman. This decree, to
gether with the fact that J. II. Gorman,
father of the girl, has declined to push
the case after the marriage was dissolved
prompted Mr. Ross to dismiss the suit,
as there would have been but little
chance of conviction under such circum
stances. Evans has been in jail here
since he was brought back from Ogdcn,
but he was released Friday.

Ed Gross, a farm band employed by
Fred Herman, living three miles east of

noon at about one o'clock. Gross
brought Mr. Herman to town in the
morning and the latter boarded the
early passenger for Albion to take in the
fair. During the forenoon Gross went
to various pieces about town and settled
several small bills. He returned home
about noon, partook of a hearty dinner
and appeared in excellent spirits, even
laughing and joking more than usual.
He went out after dinner but soon re
turned to the house and took the shot
gun with him. A few minutes later he
was found dead on the platform of the
well with his face blown all to pieces.
The coroner was called but as tho evi
dence was so plain he deemed it un-

I do not blame anybody for it." The
rest of the note was written in Bohemian
and concerned the disposal of bis horse
and $35 in money which he had coming
from Mr. Herman. Gross was about 24
years old and was engaged to be mar

The State of the Mind Has a Direct
Effect Upon the Body.
A good deal is said in these days
about the effect of mind on matter In
the way of the cure of disease, but
less is heard about mental influences
an a cause of bodily ills, yet it is an
old truth that the statc"of mind has a
direct effect on the body. The gloom
nnd depression caused by worry and
anxiety create a morbid condition of
the physical system. It is impossible
to feel well physically when the mind
nnd snlrits are downcast. The blood
does not circulate properly, appetite
fails, the bead aches, and If these mor
bid conditions continue more deep
seated aliments are likely to arise, and
cancer may be one of them.
With many persons a fit of anger Is
followed br an attack of indigestion.
Excitement destroys the appetite, bad
news creates nausea, fright causes
folntness. and so on. Violent or de
pressing emotions always disturb the
equilibrium of body and mind alike.
This being the case, it Is inevitable
that when these emotions often recur
or become continuous serious physical
results will follow. The obvious les
son is, then, that mental serenity tends
to health Is, In fact, an essential
element of health and that instead of
iTCnrt'njr to mind cures" after the
health is broken It is wise to preserve
the serenity as a preventive and safe
guard against disease. lnuianapoiis
