It should be borne in mind that the
board of trade meeting to-mon-ow
evening requires a full attendance as
business of the utmost importance is to
bo transacted. Aside from the election
of ofllccrp , the question of constitu
tional amendments is to bo considered ,
and this is n mutter that should bo con-
bidcrod by the whole board. The indi
cations are that the board will bo amore
moro powerful organization during the
coming year than during the one just
passed. Nearly all of the old members
are retaining their membership and
fcovornl now ones have boon added. The
outlook is most favorable.

that name. It is urged that the school
board 1ms not ofllchilly named the build
ing , but it is a wolf Known fact that n
man may bo called by a name not given
him by the legislature , and the fuels in
the present cnso bear out the belief
that the same may ho true of a school
building. The public is entitled to a

itself heard without the formality of
any red tape business.

THE DEATH OF HERMAN KRACHT
Despondency and Illness Iicnd to Bui

Uei'inaii Krnelil'n Doatli.
The sad news reached this city at
noon yesterday of the suicide of Her
man ICraeht , at the homo of his brother-
in-law , nielli f Outlaw , in Keg Creek
township , about sixteen miles cast o
here. Mr. ICraeht was until quite re
cently n member of the grocery tirm ol
Tholl & Kracht , doing business on
South Main street. A short tlmo ago
business became dull , and this fact so
preyed upon the mind of Mr. Ivracht
that ho became partially insane aboil
live weeks since , and a dissolution ol
partnership followed. Physical illness :
aggravated Mr. Kracht's condition , am
ho. speed ilj bccamu worse.
During one of his moody spells he
staled to Mr. Tholl that he wished ho
hud a rope around his neck , but no
fears of an attempt at suicide were on
tortnlncd until one evening his wife
discovered him in the cellar with a
rope , endeavoring to put an end to his
earthly existence. A close- watch was
then k'optupon him , and last Thursday
ho was sent into the country , to the
home of his brother-in-law. There ho
was closely looked after by Mr. Outlaw ,
who guarded him , wakingand sleeping.
Mr. ( tiittaw states that his charge slept
wlel , but evidenced considerable uneas
iness lest he talked in his sleep , and
constantly inquired whether oi
not he had told anything while asleep.
These facts tend to the belief that ho
intended suicide , and was afraid that
he would reveal ht0 intentions , and that
they would b < . > thwarted.
Wednesday afternoon Mr. Outlaw
found it necessary to go after a load ol
corn and asked the deceased to go with
him. The latter declined on the ground
that bis clothing was too light for such
cold weather. lie was then left in
charge of the hired man , who was haul
ing straw. The deceased questioned
the hired man closely as to how long he
would bo busy and how long before the
children would return from school. As
it was then but 2 o'clock ho was told it
would be several hours. Mr. Kracht
then disappeared around the straw
stack , and was not again seen alive.
When the children returned from
school his absence was discovered and
a search was instituted. Mr. Guttaw
returned about the same time and
joined in the search. A messenger
was sent to the hou-JO of another brother-
in-law , Mr. Strobehn , about two and a
half miles distant , but the missing man
had not been soon. It was then sup
posed ho had started for this
city , but as it was quite dark
no attempt was made to follow.
Later in the evening the barn was
again thoroughly searched , and in the
loft , which ib sixty feet long , was found
the lifeless body of Mr. Kracht hanging
to a 'Ix-f beam which serves as a railway
for the hay fork. The beam was but
little over six feet from the hay , which
the deceased had thrown out from under
his feet. Tie had used a halter rope as
the means of death , and had drawn up
his legs in order that ho might swing
clear of the hay. He was in this posi
tion whoa found , and the body was cold ,
it boijig then nearly ! ) o'clock.
Mr. Outlaw brought the sad news to
the bereaved family yesterday. The
deceased , who was thirty-live years of
ujjo , had resided in this city for nearly
nine years , and had a largo circle of ac
quaintances and friends. IIo leaves a.
wife and six children to mourn his loss.
The remains will bo brought to this
city to-day , and taken to the family
residence on Seventh avenue. The ar
rangements for tho. funeral are not yet
completed , and due notice of it will'be

No Poor Fur in.
One of the principal need * of this
county is a poor farm. At present there-
s no place provided for the care of the
ioor , and the increased expense 011-
ailed on the county by this state of
affairs is considerable. According to
the statement of the- overseer of the
ioor , there aromany families now being
iclped by the county who would with-
Iraw Ihoir applications for assistance if
hey were compelled to go to the poor
arm in order to receive it. In spite of
ho closcsl investigation on the part of
ho overseer , there are many parties
who secure public assistance to which
they are not entitled. These are chronic
beggars , and they make the life of the
overseer a burden. The time consumed
in investigating their cases is consider
able , and these investigations are not
always successful. As long as the pres
ent system is in operation the county
\\illvontinuoto bo bled by worthier
sharks who will squeeze their existence
from the public , although well able to
support themselves. The county dis
posed of its poor farm because it was too
small and not as profitable for working
as it should be.
It was understood when it was sold
that another was to be purchased. That
purchnso has never been made. Said n
county olllcinl yesterday : "The county
board is not responsible for the present
state of alTairs. They cannot make an
approprialion exceeding $2,000 without
a vote of the people , and a suitable farm
will cost more than that sum. There is
no question about the advisability of
purchasing n farm , but il can't bo done
until the people say so. "
As such a move would bo Iho most
paying investment that the county
could make , It is hoped that "tho
people will say so" at the next election.

During the afternoon Ibe attention of
the board was occupied in settling witli
the county overseer of the poor. The
conduct of the present board is very
noliccably different from the conduct of
of the board n year ago. It will bo re
membered that at the time the Avoca
Mail was the lowest bidder for certain
work , but that fact had no weight with
the board on account of the republican
proclivities of that paper. The result
was that the contract was awarded to
llio Council Bluffs Globe , Iho demo
cratic organ , although its bid was
higher than that of two other bidders.
The difference is that last year the
board was democratic , this year it is
republican. Last year all plums wore
given to democratic pots , regardless of
all bid * : this year they go whore they
rightly belong to the lowest bidders.

Death of the Old Wife.
Detroit Frco Press : She had lain all
the day in a stupor , breathing with
heavy labored breath , but as Iho sun
sank to rest in the far western sky and
the red glow on the wall of the "room
faded into dense shadows , she awoke
and called feebly to her aged partner ,
who was silling motionless by the bed
side ; ho bent over his dying wife and
tool ; her wan , wrinkled hand in his.
"Is il night':1" she asked in tremulous
tones , looking at him with eyes that
saw not. "Yes , " ho answered , softly.
"It is growing dark. " "Where are Iho
children ? ' ' she queried ; "aro they all
in ? " Poor old man ! How could he an
swer her ? Ihe children who had slept
for long years in the old churchyard
who had outlived childhood , and borne
the heat and burden of the day , and ,
growing old , had lain down the cross
and gone to wear Iho crown , before Ihe
old father and mother had finished their
sojourn. "The children are safe , "
answered the old man , tremulously ,
"don't think of th6m , Janet , think of
yourself : does the way seem dark ? "
"My trust is in Thee ; let me never be
confounded. What does it matter if
the way is dork ? I'd rather walk with
God in the dark than walk alone in the
light. I'd rather walk with Him by
faith than walk alone by bight. " "John ,
where is litllo Charlie ? " she asked.
Her mind was again in Iho past. The
grave dust of twenty years had lain on
Charlie's golden hair , but the mother
had never forgolt.cn him ! The old man
palled her cold hands bauds Inat had
labored so hard .that they were seamed
and wrinkled and calloused with
years of toil , and the wed
ding ring was worn to a mere
thread of gold and then ho prcnsed his
thin lips to them and cried. She had
encouraged and strengthened him in
every toil of life. Why , what a woman
she had been ! What a worker ! What
a leader in Israel ! Always with tlio
gift of prayer or service. They had
stood at many a deathbed together
closed the eyes of loved ones , and then
sat down willi tlio bible between them
to read the promises. Now she was
about lo cross Iho dark river alone.
And it was strange and sad to the old
man , and the yellow-haired grand
daughter left them , lo hear her babble
of walks in Iho woods , of gather
ing May flowers and strolling with
John , of potty household cares
that she had always put down with n
strong , rcboluto hand ; of wedding feasts
and deathbed triumphs ; and when at
midnight she heard the bridegroom's
voice , and the old man bonding over
her cried pilifully , and Iho "young
granddaughter kissed her palo brow ,
there was a solemn joy in her voice as
she hpoko the names of her children
one by one , as if she saw them with im
mortal eyes , and with one glad smile
put on immortality. They led the old
man sobbing away , and when ho saw
her again the glad morning sun was
shining , the air was jubilant
with the song of birds , and
as she lay asleep on the
couch unelor the north window , where
ho had soon her so often lie down to
rest while waiting for the Sabbath bell.
.And she were the same best black silk
and the hiring of gold Deads about her
thin neck and the folds of white tulle.
Only now the brooch with his miniature
was wanting , and in ils place was a
while rose and a spray of cedar she
had loved cedar she had loved to sing
over her work :
Oh , may I in his courts bo seen ,
Lllco ayoung cedar fresh and green. "
But what strange transformation was
there ! The wrinkles were gone. The
braces of ago and pain and weariness
ivoro all smoothed/ out ; the face had
grown strangely young , and n placid
iinile was laid on tile pale lips. The
aid man was awed by this likeness to
the bride of his youth. IIo kissed the
unresponsive lips and said softly :
; 'You'vo found heaven first , Janet , but
you'll come for 019 soon ! Its our flr&t
parting in moro than seventy years ,
jut it won't bo for long it won t bo for
eng ! " And it was , not. The winter
