Francis Stock was born at Apolda.
Sachsenweimar, Germany, Oct. 20, 1822.
He died at the home of bis daughter,
Mrs. E. W. Uahn, Jan. 14, 1911, aged 88
years, 2 months and 25 days. He was
one of a family of nine children, the
father, mother, brothers and sisters hav
ing preceded him to the better land.
He left his native home in Germany
February, 1844, having traveled all
through the Holy land. Came to Ameri
ca in September, 1851, and was united in
marriage April 10th, 185C, to Mies Eliza
beth Winkleman at Muscatine, Iowa.
In the Outlook of Jan. 5, we reprinted
an item which we clipped from the Bel
grade Herald, and giving that paper
credit for same The item refers to the
moving away of the B. F. McBride fam
ily, also that Mr. McBride "owned the
only homestead in Boone county that
never hid a mortgage on it " A kind
friend called us up last evening, and
stated that a number of the old timers,
who took up homestead:) here years ago,
and never had a planter on them, took
exceptions to the article. As we did
not write same and as the article was
properly credited, we are not at all re
sponsible, nevertheless we are only
too willing to state that many home
steaders, right in this vicinity, like Mr.
McBride, never had a mortgage on their
homesteads. Where the Helgrade editor
got bis information wc don't know.
Anyhow he has another guess coming.

Mr. and Mrs Webster took their little
daughter Margaret to Omaha Taeaday of
this week, where aha will ba treated by
a specialist.
Besides the heavy shipment of grain
the first of the week, a number of can
of aeed corn, raised by local fanners,
were sent to market.
F. A. Terry of Merna, Neb., who
traded for the Veetei Moore property in
the east part of town, moved here this
week and will make Monroe his home
for the present.
Ed Fox came up from Valparaiso
Thursday for a couple of days visit with
old friends. He had been making a pur
chase of some thoroughbred Herefords
and was on bis way home.
Seven years ago Mrs. Geo. Thomazin
bought a IGo acre farm near St. Edward
for $40 per acre, and during the interven

Last week she sold the place for $90 an
acre. How i that for an investment?
Lester Kelley expects to go to St.
Mary's hospital in Columbus during the
coming week and nndergo an operation
for appendicitis. He has been under
the weather for some time, and when
appendicitis developed an operation waa
decided on.
During'the snow the first of the year
the roads on the north part of rural
route No. 2 became blocked, anil it was
several days before they were opened.
As these matters are required to be re
ported to the post office department,
this was done, and the authorities at
Washington have taken the matter np,
and they have notified the patrons that
the roads must be opened after each
storm or they will consider an amend
ment to the present route.
During the first four days of this week
the grain business has been rushing in
Monroe. This is occasioned by the river
being frozen hard enough to permit
hauling from the south side, and the
Loup township farmers have been tak
ing advantage of this. The elevators
have been very busy and one of them
was compelled to work until one o'clock
in the morning to keepout of the way of
the rush. Plenty of cars have been
available, however, and this has prevent
ed the houses from becoming blocked
with grain. At present there are indica
tions that the ice will soon become so
rotten that hauling will have to be dis
continued, but should another cold snap
follow, another busy time is ahead for
the elevator men.

Krom the Gazette.
This didn't happen in Bellwood. A
fashionably dressed young woman en
tered a postoffloe in a large western city,
hesitated a moment, and stepped up to
the stamp window. The oletk looked up
expectantly, and she asked: "Do yon
sell stamps here?" The clerk politely
answered. "Yes." "I would like to see
some, please," was the unusual request.
The clerk lazily handed out a large sheet
of the 2-cent variety, which the young
woman carefully examined. Pointing
to one near the center, she said, "I will
take this one please."

wedding guests, attended to his injuries.
John was hurt about the bead and lay in
an unconscious condition the greater
part of the day and evening. The bride
and groom knew nothing about the ac
cident until after the nuptial knot was
tied, otherwise it might have caused a
delay. John, next day, was much better
and it is hoped he will be all right in a
few days. The other two boys escaped

Eight Easy Stages of the Most Awful
Kinds of Torture.
The places of torment to which all
.wicked Buddhists arc to be assigned
on the day of final reckoning is a ter
rible place of punishment This Bud
dhistic hell is divided Into eight "easy
8tnges."
In the first the poor victim Is com
pelled to walk for untold ages in hi
bare feet over hills thickly set with
redhot needles, points upward. In the
second stage the skin is all carefully
filed or rasped from the body and ir
ritating mixtures applied. In the third
stage the nails, hair and eyes are
plucked out and the denuded body
sawed and planed into all sorts of
fantastic shapes. The fourth stage is
that of "sorrowful lamentations." In
the fifth the left side of the body and
the denuded head are carefully roast
ed, Yema, the Buddhistic Satan, su
perintending the work. In the sixth
stage the arms are torn from the body
and thrown into an immense vat
among the eyes, nails and hair pre
viously removed. Then in plain hear
ing of the sore footed, blind, maimed,
roasted and bleeding victim the whole
horrid mass is pounded into a jelly.
In the seventh stage the other side of
the victim and his feet are roasted
brown, and then comes the eighth and
last stage, in which the candidate is
thrown Into the bottomless pit of
perdition.
Telephone Lies.
At One Hundred and First street and
Broadway a man was talking into a
telephone. Presently he was beard to
say: "All right I'll come. I am now
at Twenty-third street and Broadway.
I'll be up In about half an hour."
"That chap seems to have lost his
bearings," said a man who had over
beard the error in locality.
"He knows where he Is all right,"
said a drug clerk. "He's Just putting
up n bluff. It is quite a common bluff.
Men who have a mighty high regard
for truth at all other times do not hesi
tate to tell a whopper about where
they are when talking over the tele
phone. I have heard persons swear
over that wire that they were tele
phoning from points all the way from
Hoboken to Amityville. They were
not seasoned liars, either; Just wanted
a few minutes' grace apparently and
thought the easiest way to get it was
to make out they were a mile or two
farther away than they really were."

Custom In Spain.
One tiling specially is vital In Spain:
"Costumbre." they say ("It Is the cus

tersely for the Spanish business man
to keep his word and pay his bills; ex
actly as It Is equally customary for
him to lack what we call "honor" In
some other departments of life. It is
customary to do or not to do. to like
or not to like, a thousand things. Why?
"Custombre" Is the only reply. It is
customary, moreover, not to yield read
ily to an improvement or a luxury,
even as it is again equally customary,

given thing, to hold to It like adamant

A Shrewd Answer.
Among the advertisements In an
English paper there recently appeared
the following: "The gentleman who
found a purse with money In Burford
street is requested to forward it to
the address of the loser, as he was

A few days later this reply was In

who picked up a purse in Burford

"The Gsntleman In White" and the
Idea ef the Red Crass.
During the Itnliau war of 1859 young
Jean Duiiaut was traveling in that
country. After the battle of Solferlno
he visited the field, aud, seeing the
terrible sufferings of the wounded sol
diers who lay around unattended, be,
with the assistance of several peasant
women, formed an ambulance service,
with Its headquarters iu a little church
at Castlglione. He helped with his
own bands to bind up the wounds of
Frenchmen, Italians and Austrians
alike.
'They are all brothers," he said. 'A
wounded enemy is an enemy no long
er." And be and bis corps of helpers
brought water and medicine and
smoothed the pallets of straw and
cheered the unfortunates and closed
the eyes of the dead and performed
the last kind offices for the dying.
Dunant was regarded by the hundreds
of wounded as a miracle of goodness
little less than an angel. "The gentle
man in white" was the way in which
the officers spoke of him as he moved
around among the sick, his light cloth
ing making him conspicuous on the
field.
His experiences at Solferlno, where
he saw that the willing hands of a
few untrained helpers actually saved
many lives and comforted hundreds of
others, inspired him with the grand
Idea of an organization the Red Cross.

oue occasion and asked him to paint n

name his own terms.
"You have seen my pictures. thenV"
asked Melssonier.
"Oh, yes," exclaimed the manager,
"but it is your name I want! It will
draw crowds to my theater."
"And how large do you wish this
curtain to ber Inquired the artist.
"Ah, well, we will say 13 by 18 me

ceeded to make a calculation. At last
he looked up and said, with imper
turbable gravity:
"I have calculated and find that my
pictures are valued at 80,000 francs
per meter. Your curtain, therefore,
will cost yon just 21,000,000 francs.
But that Is not all. It takes me twelve
months to paint twenty-five centime

The Great German Peetf a Analysis ef

Figure to yourself this youth, this
son of princes; conceive him vividly,
bring his state Vcfore your eyes aad
then observe him when he learns that
his father's spirit walks. Stand be
fore him In the terror of the Bight
when the venerable spirit appears
over him. A horrid shudder passes
ever him; he speaks to the mysterious
form; he sees it beckon to him; he fol
lows it and hears. The fearful accu
sation of his uncle rings in his ears,
the summons to revenge and the pierc
ing, oft repeated prayer. "Reasember
me!"
And when the ghost has varnished
who is it that stands before us? A
young hero panting for vengeance?
No! Trouble and astonishment take
hokl or the solitary young man. He
grows bitter against smiling: villains,
swears that he will not forget the
spirit and concludes with the afgall-
cant ejaculation:
The time Is out of Joint. O cursed spite.

SACKING A THEATER.
Tribulatiens ef the Drama In New
York In 175.
Here is an account of the sacking of
a theater in New York from the 'Ga
zette of May 3, 1705:
"The play advertised to be acted last
Monday evening having given osTease
to sundry and divers inhabltaats of
this city, who thought It highly im
proper that such entertainments should
be exhibited at this time of public dis
tress, when great numbers of poor peo
ple tan scarce find means of subsist
ence, whereby many persons might be
tempted to neglect their business aad
squander that money which Is neces
sary to the payment of their debts aad
the support of their families, a rusaor
was spread about the town that if the
play went on the audience would meet
with some disturbance from the multi
tude. "This prevented the greatest part of
those who intended to have been there
from going. However, many people
came, and the play was begun, bat
soon Interrupted by the multitude, who
burst oiien the doors aud entered with
noise and tumult. The audience es
caped in the best manner they could.
Many lost their hats and other articles
of raiment. A boy bad his skull frac
tured and was yesterday trepaaaed.
Death Is his. Several others were
sorely set upon and Injured. But we
heard of no lives lost. The multitude
immediately demolished the bouse, car
ried the pieces to the common, where
they consumed them In a bonfire."
