Not many moons ago tbo territory under
< ho Sixteenth street viaduct was the scene
of almost dally rows , brawls and fights. 01
late , however , the white winged dove ol
peace lias been flapping Its wings over that
particular locality until the squatter section
along the tracks lias been as quiet as the
nrave. Subscipient developments , however ,
liave furnished the conclusive evidence that
this calm was the forerunner of a storm
that has now broken forth In all of Its old-
Not far from the Intersection of Sixteenth
and Mason streets there are a number of
fi'mnll houses , two of which are occupied by
the families of the Kemps and the Carvers.
Bonio years ago these two families had a
conflict over a cow , and since that day they
have not been on speaking terms , nor has
one member of the Carver family dnred to
cross the path of any member of the Kemp
family. They have stood upon their respec
tive sides of the street , glaring at one an
other and whetting their knives In the event
that open hostilities should be declared at
any time In the future. Other residents
of the vicinity have been crying for peace ,
nt the same tlmo urging the two warring
factions on to open mutiny and a battle. In
this they have been unsuccessful , both the
Kemps and the Carvers declaring that their
fighting days were over.
This morning peace gave up all efforts
to maintain that feeling of brotherly love ,
nnd burying Its face In Us hands , told the
heads of the two families to cut loose and do
their worst. The neighbors heard of the
war declarations , and arranging their forces ,
gazed as Interested spectators upon the bat
HOW THE UO\V STARTED.
It so happens that Mary Ketnp Is the
owner of a dog , a big , brutal fellow , while
F. Carver possesses a rooster that has won
eevcral dollars for Its owners by doing up
other birds In the game pit. Soon after the
un had shed Its rays over the viaduct , as
the story told In court goes , Mary Kemp
crawled from her bed , and In looking over
her possessions she spied the Carver fowl
digging away at the vegetables In her truck
patch , making sad havoc with the beans and
lettuce. This was more than the good rich
blood of a Kemp could stand , and picking
up a chunk of coal she shied chlckcmvard ,
It striking the game bird amldshlp. The
bird made a couple of circles about the
premises and then dropped dead upon the
doorsteps of Its owner.
At about this tlmo of day Carver was
crawling from his couch and drawing himself
iuto his clothes ho went out doors , stumbling
over the dead carcass of a thing that for
years had been his pride and Joy. Picking
up the rooster , he cast ono glance at the
homo of the Kemps , and In casting that
glance ho saw enough to convince him that
Mary Kemp was the slayer of the bird.
Wild with rage and with blood In his eyes ,
he started across the vacant lot , fully Intend
ing to liavo It out right there and then. At
the door , however , he came to a sudden halt ,
and , In a measure , changed his mind , as he
was met by a bull dog that had not tasted
meat for three days. There was a hot war
of words and then man and woman closed
In for a tight. ,
Carver got first blood by landing a lower
cut left hiinder squarely under Mrs. Kemp's
left eye. As Carver struck , Mrs. Kemp
dodged and In countering she hit Carver
onp under the chin , that sent him to grass.
Tha crowd which had gathered gave the
round to the woman and at once called
Carver up to the ropes for the second go.
This was short and effective , Carver catching
the woman by the neck and shutting off her
wind. The spectators called a foul and gave
the round to the female , who was bleeding
likea stuck pig from the packing house.
, WHEN THE DOG GOT IN.
After a short breathing spell the com
batants started on the third round , when
the dog appeared to toke a part , nnJ as
Carver was getting In some short arm work
on Mrs. Kemp's ribs , the beast Jumpad upon
him and at once commenced taking a break
fast fronii arms , body and legs. Carver
Weakened and acknowledged that ho had
not been given a square deal This ac
knowledgement , however , did not i-ton the
fighting so far as the dog and Mrs Kemp
.yvero concerned , for whllo ono was pounding
away at one end of the nviu , the sldo part
ner was Industriously doinp business at the
other end , giving Corvsr the appliance
of having passed through a thrashing mricli-
Ine. At last he broke nway anJ started tip
towij ) while the crowd went wild with Joy ,
as It was the biggest elrjw of the sraion.
As Caiver ran , Mrs. Ksmo divine I his
motives , opining that lie was on his \\ay
to the lo'lco station to sccurj n warrant for
her arrest. Not to bo behind In the arresting
business , she started for : ho sutlon , and
for a tlmo It was a sprinting race that
would have done credit to a couple cf pro
fessionals. Carver , however , possessed the
better wind and reached the station Koine
flfty yards ahead of his competitor. This
gave him the advantage and the first war
rant , but tliu woman was soon on hand
and got second place without an effort. The
result of 'the ' whole affair , Is that both par-
tics will be arrested and tried for disturbing
the peace and quiet of the'city. .

That a fool Is born every mlnuto was the
opinion of a great philosopher. Some people
ple never become too old to learn something
more of the crafty ways of that class of hu
manity that subsists upon the credulity of
others. All through their lives they have
lived In a world where the parlor of the
spider Is always open. Their experience has
counted the victims of the confidence man
ami the flim-flam artist by the score. Every
now swindle Is exposed In the columns of
the dally papers all over the country and
still the rural victim continues to saunter
heedlessly Into the tolls. He loses his
money and his confidence , while the un
scrupulous manipulator of the game fills his
pockets and begins the search after another
Mrs. E. A. Droadwell Is a widow who lives
In the bustling city of Grand Island. She
has existed among the snares and follies of
this wicked world for forty years and Is con
sidered a woman of good sense and discern
ment. llut recently she allowed herself to
fall a victim to ono of the most flimsy con
fidence games that has been perpetrated In
Omaha for some time. She has gained ex
perience \\hlch she values at $250 , and she
paid that amount for It In good hard coin
that she had labored for many years to ac
SHE HAD SAVED MONEY.
Since her husband died , which was nearly
ten years ago , Mrs. Uroadwcll has worked
hard to make a living for herself and In
cidentally to lay something aside for old
age. In this she was fairly successful anil
through hard work and economy she was
the proprietor of a bank account expressed
In three figures. During the latter part of
May her attention was attracted by an ad
vertisement In an Omaha dally paper. It
was to the effect that a responsible and
energetic man wanted a partner In a profit
able and safe business. It was the chance
of a life-time , but as ho needed the partner
Immediately ho was willing to make over a
halt Interest to some person .who could assist
him In the business and contribute ? 500 for
Hard work was not so attractive to the
mind of the reader , but she was favor
ably Inclined toward an opportunity to make
money easily for the remaining years of
her Ilfo and she finally concluded to reply
to the advertisement. The proposition was
signed by R. W. Trelegan , Colonade hotel ,
Omaha , and In another day a letter was
.raveling toward the address mentioned. The
reply was more than satisfactory. The
brilliant Inducements referred to In the ad
vertisement were repeated and enlarged upon
and the recipient was urged to come to
Omaha and sco for herself what a golden
opportunity fortune had placed Irf fter path.
After some reflection Mrs. Droadwell con
cluded not to let such a chance slip through
her fingers and on June 8 she arrived In
Omaha. She had no difficulty In finding
Trelegan , who then unfolded his scheme
for their mutual benefit. Ho represented
that he was the lucky and only proprietor
of the Star Novelty company , with which
ho had engaged to entertain the crowds at
Courtland beach for the remainder of the
season. He had part of his company al
ready engaged and these consisted of his
wife and a short-haired fairy who was with
out exception the greatest song and dance
artist that had ever appeared before the
American public. This celebrated artist
gave the prospective partner afree ex
hibition of her attainments which were so
different from anything that she had ever
seen that she was ready to accept the state
ments of the manager that such an attrac
tion was sure to bo a winner and bring in
shekels by the cart load to enrich the com
WENT INTO THE COMPANY.
All this and much more occupied several
lays and the upshot was that she deter
mined to Join the company and a contract
ind an agreement were at once drawn up.
By this Trelegan was to be the manager
at the show. He was contribute his ex
perience and ? 1,000 worth of scenery and
3ther stage furniture which ho claimed to
liavo in storage and Mrs. Droadwell was to
simply put up $500 for a half Interest and
remain with the company as secretary and
treasurer. It seemed like a good thing and
she was so charmed with Mr. Trelegan and
Ills engaging wife that she did not think
to make any further Inquiries about his
juslness standing or responsibility. She gave
: iim $250 which was all she had with her
ind went back to Grand Island with the
understanding that her manager would send
Tor her as scon as ho had completed the
preliminary arrangements anil signed the
rcit of his company.
After her arrival In Grand Island she
looked In vain for the promised communt-
: .itlon. As a couple of weeks passed with
no news she began to wonder whether she
liad been too hasty In letting go of the slmo-
leons and finally she wrote to Trelecan to
inquire the cause of the delay. Receiving no
inswor she addressed another letter to the
Talry of song and dance celebrity , but with
no better success. Then she became alarmed
ind took the train for Omaha. Arriving
licro she found that the party had left
the Colonade and had gene to the Homo
tiotel on Thirteenth street. There she lost
ill track of them. They had left suddenly
and no one knew toward what point of the
compass they had directed their departuiu.
A visit to Courtland beach developed the
fact that TreltEun and his show had never
been heard of there , and then for tlje first
time she admitted that she and her money
hail parted company. Then she went to
County Attorney Kaley and wanted him to
have a warrant Issued for the arrest of the
swindlers. Hut as they had evidently made
a masterly retreat nothing could be done In
this direction , and the victim was assured
that about the only thing left for her to do
was to go back home and try to make her
recently acquired experience fill the exca
vation In her bank account.

DEMON OF GASOLINE.
Kiploslun In Which Mri. Kuohol Is IVrlmpH
Mrs. Kuohel , wife of a motor conductor
residing at 410 South Twenty-seventh ave
nue , was badly , and , perhaps , fatally burned
about G o'clock la t evening by the explosion
of a gasoline stove , over which she was pre
paring the evening meal. The explosive
fluid had nearly all burned out of the reser
voir , and In some manner became Ignited ,
exploding with terrific force. Mrs. Kuohel
was knocked down , and the fiery fluid ran
over her clothing , burning her arms , neck ,
face and head In a frightful manner. A
physician was summoned , and she was
placed under the Influence of strong opiates ,
and everything possible was done to relieve
her sufferings. Her Injuries may prove
fatal. The loss to the house and contents
will not exceed $150.
ixt > latmtlon of itho riiidlnir of Skeletons
I'ndi-r the Dmlgo School House.
Worklngmen unearthed three more skele
tons while excavating under the Dodge street
school house yesterday. In all six skeletons
have been discovered under this building
In the past two Weeks. At first there seemed
to be some sort of mystery surrounding-
finding of the bones In this spot , but an old-
timer dispels all this by alleging that this
building Is on the ground formerly used by
the Mormons and It Is concluded that this
Is the spot where these people burled their
dead during the time they were located on
the western banks of the Missouri. An un
dertaker who has carefully examined the
fragments of bones dug up is of the opinion
that they have laid In the ground for thirty-
five or forty years.

A murderous assault was committed upon
James Redmond by James Crowley , al
Thirty-first and R streets , about 12 o'clocl
Wednesday night. Redmond Is now being at
tended to by Dr. Thomas Kclley and Dr
Slabaugh at tha city hospital on Twenty-
flfth street , with very slim chances of re
The differences bclween the two mei
started about two weeks ago whllo at a dog
fight. They quarreled there and did not
meet again until WeJnesday night , when
Crowley approached Redmond and said , "Arc
you as- good a man as you were a few nights
ago ? " Redmond opined that he
was , and the two men began
scrapping , Redmond getting the besl
of the fight. Ofilccr Mulcahy happcnetl
along just In lime lo separate the men anil
ordered them to go home. Up to this time
tlio racket had only the appearance ol
a Jaw bone scrap , and Iho officer Ihought
nothing more of It. A short time afterwards
he learned thai the two men were fighting
again. This tlmo he took Crowley by the
arm and marched him two blocks away ,
telling him If he did not go home ho would
lock him up. Ho then returned lo chastise
Redmond In a similar manner , when the dis
covery was made that Redmond had been
stabbed with on ugly butcher's knife. The
wound was across the abdomen , and was
fully six Inches long. The blood was flowing
In a stream to the man's feet before he
knew ho had been cut. Ho felt the blow
but supposed Crowley had only used his
fist.When the officer saw Redmond's condition
ho hastened to overtake Crowley and the two
men were taken to Ihe police station. Medi
cal aid was promptly summoned and as soon
as possible Redmond was taken to the hos
In removing Redmond's clolhing It was
discovered that he had also been gashed In
the back. Crowley had plunged the blade
of his sharp weapon Into the center of the
back , making a gash about three inches
long and very deep. Hoth wounds are seri
ous and extremely painful , and II Is con
sidered doubtful If Ihe man can live.
Crowley works at the Omaha packing
plant. He Is a burly fellow and the police
say he Is tough. In Kansas City he was
a member of the "Dirty Dozen , " and hero
In South Omaha he Is a shining light In the
"Tin Front" gang on the hill. When Cap
tain Connell asked Crowley how he nould
like to face the charge of murder , he replied ,
" 0 , dat's niittln' when you gits use lo It. "
Asslstanl Counly Attorney Troupe filed a
complaint charging assault with Intent to
kill and will let that stand until Redmond's
condition Is more fully developed.
Redmond works at the Omaha packing
plant also , but In a different de
partment. lie also boards at a differ
ent place. He does not have the appear
ance of being tough , but Is a physical giant.
Ills home Is at Indianapolis , Ind. , and he has
anly been in South Omaha a short time.

This is the way a good old Irish woman
praises some wasliing-powder or other
which she prefers to Pcarlinc. As it
was proven she had never tried Pearl-
me , the compliment would appear to be
in favor of Pcarline.
' Whoever heard of any one claiming
that Pearline hurt the hands ? Hut
there's the trouble Pearline is the orig
inal washing compound ; its popularity
has drawn out thousands of imitations so popular that to
many it indicates any powdered washing material. If you are
using Pearline , you are satisfied ; if you are dissatisfied , try
Pearline. If you are using something with which you are
satisfied and it is not Pearline , try Pearline you will won
der you were satisfied before. Pearline is economical and
absolutely harmless. Every grocer sells it. 415 JAMES PYLE , N. .
