Why don't the many chesaplay-
ers in this city organize a chess club ?
There are many excellent players ,
and a great muhy more who are not
excellent players , in Omaha , who
could form themselves into a club
of this kind and matte it a success ,
and a club so organized , with the
usual club room , would , in these
long winter evenings , make a pleas
ant resort for chess players , and give
s stimulus to this father of all
games.
a young man
twenty-oneyears of age died at Mercy
Hospital Wednesday morning of ty
phoid fever after a brief illness. He
"had been in Otnaha something over
a year , and was employed asclprk
at Bradatreet & Go's. Commercial
Agency. The deceased was quite
well acquainted In the. city , especl-
ally among thffImslness men. He
was half owner of the running horse
"Lady Clare , " and had about two
hundred dollars in money just 'be
fore hisjdeath , which some one , it is
- thought , took to keep for him. The
remains were .sent .east .yesterday
afternoon to his noine , Cape Vin-

faCilei.
Yesterday airwoman named
Sarah E. Murray , taged between 45
and 50 years , called on general tick
et agent Kimball , of the Union .Pa
cific , at his office , and applied for a
pass to Nonu Platte. It appears
that she has a husband and a son at
JSorth Platte , employed as herders
by Keith& Barton , and , she was on
her way from Atlanta , Georgia ,
to meet them , and to hereafter make
Nebraska her home Avith them.
The money which 'they had sent
only paid her traveling expenses to
St. Joe. On arriving there , last
Friday , she found that she had but
a very small amount of money left ;
a sum altogether insufficient to pay
her way over the railroad to Omaha.
Having no friends , and being un
successful in her applications for as
sistance in the : shape of u puss , she
pluckily determined to walk to
North Platte , a distance of 400
miles.
So on Saturday morning last she
Started , and this morning arrived
in Omaha , having walked 150 miles ,
after having suffered considerable
on the way. She met with many
kind favors from charitable people
along her zoute. When she reached
Omaha , she found the weather had
suddenly become so cold that her
courage and endurance failed her , as
she was thinly clad. Had the weath ,
er been favorable , she would have
continued her weary , tramp. Borne
kind person learning her story di
rected her to Mr. Klmball's office ,
wnero sue related the above facts.
Mr. Kimball , wirb. very little hesita
tion , furpfshed her a pass to her des
tination , and she expressed her
grateful thanks with tears } n bur
eyes , and as she left the office , we
heard her utter a "God bless you. "
She departed on the 11:30 express
train for the West ,

ATTEMPTED BURGLARY.
The Burglars Beccive a Bed Hot
Reception.
A very bold but unsuccessful at
tempt to burglarize the "Nebraska
Gun store , " on Farnham street , was
made Wednesday night by a brace of
thieves. About midnight , the pro
prietor , Mr. M. Schutt , who lives
in the rear of his store with his fam
ily , was awakened by a noise as if
some one were trying to
unlock the front door by false keys.
Grabbing up a large-sized navy re
volver , he opened the inside door
and looked forward , and there saw
the head of a man just above the
lower panel of the front door , the
lock of which he was trying to pick.
Mr. Schutt took aim and shot The
ball , as was afterwards discovered ,
struck the floor , glanced upward
and passed through two panes of
glass. The burglars took to their
heels , and Mr. tichutt ran out to
the sidewalk , and yelled to them to
come back. They didu't accept the
invitation , however.
Mr. Schutt always has two or
three loaded revolvers near at hand ,
and won't hesitate to use them on
any similar occasion hereafter.

AnEnoca Ardenish Story.
" "Us strange but true ; for truth Is always
strange ;
Stranger than fiction ; " *
So thought the writer when he
heard the following truestory related
to him this morning by a gentle
man conversant with all the facts :
About seven or eight years ago a
Bohemian , named Novacek , arrived
in'Omaha , with his family , consist
ing of a wife and two children. He
was not then hardly thirty
years of age , and had already
accumulated the sura of $12,000 ,
the profits of several years success
ful farming in Europe. This money
he brought Avith him to Omaha ,
which he selected as his home.
Under these favorable circum
stances his hopes of further success
in the new world were of the
brightest character , but as the sequel
will shoflr , his expectations , how
ever great they may have been ,
were in a few short years all over
thrown , and his fortune , happiness ,
and family relations were all
wrecked.
After looking around Omaha for
a while , seeking an investment for
a portion or the whole of his money ,
as he might see fit , he finally pur
chased of A. D. Jones , two lots on
Twejfth street , between Douglas
and Dodge , nearly opposite the
Jones House. On this property he
put up a frame building which was
called the Cedar Rapids House.
He opened it as a boardinghouse -
house , and not being familiar
with the English language , he em
ployed as a clerk a young Bohemi
an who could talk English. This
clerk was a rascal of thg first wqtgr ,
and soon swindled Novacekout of a
considerable suni of money. Nova- ,
eek , not being familiar with board-
Infi'bousB tactics , became disgusted
with the-business , after loling sev
eral thousand dollars iu it. He ac
cordingly gave it up , and purchased
a farm of eighty acres of Janfl ten
mljes west of , Qniaha.
The Cedar Rapids House was sold
to a Mr. Hansen. It ha.d rather an
interesting history. It was after
wards run by the notorious Hester
Baldwin , as a maison deplaislr. It
was In this house that the beautiful
Cora Clinton lived , and for whom a
young government clerk either com
mitted suicide or was shot by the girl
herself. Itwas afterwards occupied
as the BEC office , and was burned
down by the fire-bug , Robert An
derson. * .
There were many other accidents
and incidents connected with its
history , which we cannot recall to
mind at the present moment
To return to our hero : Novacek
stocked his farm with fine horses
and cattle , supplied It with agricul
tural machinery , and made many
improvements. Once more he was
on the road to prosperity , and fast
retrieving his losses. It was at this
point of his eventful career , tfca.t
ll § spnt for { i yoqnger brother
In Europe. The brother came , and
with him came new troubles. It
appears that Novacek's wife and
the younger brother had been quite
intimate friends in youth , and thja
intimacy was renewed upon their
meeting again. j-Novacek became
jealous of hjs brother.and he thought
the friendship was altogether lee
thick. A family quarrel was the
inevitable result , and the family
was broken up.
Novaoek's wife came into the city
to reside , while her husband became
reckless and shiftless , and paid but
little , if any , attention to his affairs.
His wife began proceedings for a di
vorce , but he did not seem to trouble
himself about her course of action ,
nor did he take the first step to pre
vent it She was successful iu her
sujtj obtaining ijer dporee of Divorce
and $1,000 alimony , and $100 per
annum for each of her children.
During the pending of the suit
Novacek mysteriously and suddenly
disappeared , and it was generally
supposed that he had become de
ranged by his misfortunes and had
committed suicide. His farm was
sold , and everything was disposed
of. Shortly after the sale , Mrs. No
vacek entered into the employment
jf a German named Selzle , who , it <
tvill be remembered , was arrested
ast summer on suspicion of having
ihotand killed a colored man in the
louthwestern outskirts of the city ,
> ut who , upon examination , was
lischarged. Selzle finally married
Irs. Novacek.
Last spring she bid in the remam-
ng lot on Twelfth street for $500.
) ne of her children had died , so
hat what property -Movacek had
jft was divided-between her and
tie remaining child. ,
Wovacek , who was supposed to
aveendedhislife , had only secretly
; ft the State. He became a wan-
erer , and worked as a laborer on
irms and in factories iu Iowa and ajn
ajol
llinols , and during the past three
ol
ears he has had a bard row to hoe. oln
[ is thoughts at last turned to O matt
w
tt , and he concluded to come back
tc
3d learn what had taken place du tc5t
ng his absence. He arrived here
5t
IB first of the present week , caus-
5tb
ig a complete surprise to his
b <
d acquaintances , all of whom
lought he was filling a suicide's
7t
ave In some lonely spot He

g suicide. He is stout and healthy ,
id seems destined to be happy yet
e.has learned how bis pioperty Ll
18 slipped from bla grasp , and he
now intends to take steps to recover
it , or as much thereof as the law
will give him , if there is anything
left to recover. "
He does not propose to trouble his
former'wife , nor attempt to regain
her affections. He takes every
thing very coolly and in a matter-
of-fact way , and has engaged a well-
known firm of lawyers to attend to
his case.
A Sad Case.
Patrick Mehan , the Union Pacific
employe , who had a leg amputated
a few days ago in consequence of
being run over by the cars , died at
lOo'clock Wednesdayrnornlng. The
amputated leg was doing well , but
the injuries received by the other
leg caused his death. His wife died
a few weeks ago , and he leaves
eight children. The funeral took
place yesterday at two o'clock.
The deceased came here from Cana
da about three years ago , and pur
chased 320 acres of land from the
railroad company , intending to make
this his future home ; but death and
misfortunes overtook him.
He IB not Ubiquitou * .
The Sioux City Journal hits the
religious editor of the Herald be
tween the eyes as follows :
The Omaha Herald of the 25th
says : "The various churches were
well attended on Sunday , but as our
religious editor is not ubiquitous we
cannot give a report" As the same
issue contains quite a report of "the
gymnastic exhibition at Turner hall
Sunday evening , " we think we
could give a pretty good guess at
the whereabouts of the "religious
editor" on that holj Sabbath night

NYHY IS IT ?
That through all the dull season
just passed , when other dry goods
storea were empty and clerks a.slpep ,
Bushman's "dry goods store has
always been as crowded as ever ?
Why Is it that old merchants are
complaining bitterly , and are mov
ing away ? Because Bushman sells
goods as cheap In OMAHA AS
THEY AW SOLD IN NEW
xQRK CITY AT RETAU. . .
Because Bushman's prices atretall
In many goods are less than the
usual wholesale prices. And IRSC ,
but not least , because the people
have found out for themselves that
a child can buy as cheap and as
safely as the most experienced buy
er , and that is our aim to make our
store the most reliable , place of busi
ness In this great new northwest.
