(From a Staff Corrwpnndf nt.)
LINCOLN, Nor. 21. (Special.) Mr.
Albert Per h ret t made htr appearance in
Llccola thin morning. Mr. Serhrcst I the
woman who made a bluff at lommittlng
ulride at Learrnworth last Monday after-
nocn. The flrat Intimation of It wn when
note waa found (ring aside a cheap, black
atraw hat, and reciting that t h la marked
the apot where Mr. Al Sechreat and baby
bad gone to eternal rest In the water of
the deep Missouri.
Mr. Sechrest I a Lincoln girl, the
daughter of John V. gtiine.
The day after the finding of the note the
baby betrayed Ita preence at the Strlne
home by crying long and loud. Thla waa
proof positive that It at leaat had not
been drowned. Once before, when the
woman bad executed a myateriou disap
pearance she waa found at her home here
and aa the baby wa but a few week old.
It waa figured that ahe would not be far
away from It. . ,
No one seems to have een her eome, but
bout noon an officer learned of her pres
ence there. At first ahe refused to talk.
Then ahe admitted the leporters.
She Is In a pitiable mental and physical
late, due, her friends say, to brooding
over the killing of her husband by a Kan
sas City physician She was to appear Mon
day at the trial of Sechrest'a alayer and
rather than face the ordeal she preferred
"I Intended," she aald to a Bee reporter,
"to drown myself when I went to Leaven
worth Monday. My sister waa with me,
but I did not aay anything to her about
what 1 wa going to do. When we reached
the bank my sister sat down and I aud
the baby went to the water' edge. There
were a number of people around, but I
Jldn't care. When I got close to the water,
however, my heart failed me on account
f the baby and I Just turned around and
"From Leavenworth I came directly
home her with the baby. It waa on Sunday
night that I left the note on the river
bank, and It wa Tueaday that I got here
with the baby. I returned at once to Kan
sas City, and . from there I went to my
sister' In St. Lout.
"J have telegraphed the prosecuting at
torney at Kanaaa City to meet me here
tomorrow. I left there because I didn't
want to go through the trial. I Intended
then to commit auiclde and I still Intend
to destroy myself. I have nothing to live
for. O, I will do It somehow. I have de
termined on that." -
Public opinion la divided a to whether
the woman I really unbalanced or whether
she has a monomania and a liking to figure
a the central figure In newspaper atorlea.
At least three times ahe haa appeared In
the stellar role.
Her presence In Lincoln war detected by
the officer. The birth of the baby had not
been reported to the health department,
and when an officer called thla morning
th;re waa so much delay that hla suspic
ion were arouaed. Detective Malone and
several reporters afteward went out and
forced their way In, the woman being
found In a bedroom.'

Elx burglaries were reported to the po

The commission appointed some time

woman la the owner of S20.0C0 worth of

She waa committed to the asylum laat

he baa begun to fear that her children,
of whom there are fourteen, were trying

Mr. "Broadball, cashier of the Lindsay
bank, where ahe ha the largest part of
her funda on deposit, has Intereated him

waa taking testimony he appeared on the
scene with four Oermana, who had gone
to Madison county at the same time a

gations of error are based upon the fact
that In the Indictment the name of the
bank of which Harris wss rsshler was

such a the articles of Incorporation, It ap
peared aa "The Farmers' Bank of Custer

It appears that the caee of John Mc
Cormlrk, the Nebraska City murderer of
bis mistress, which was reversed at the
recent sitting of the supreme court for
Informality In the Imposition of the sen
tence, la only sent back for resentence.
Judge Jessen, In Imposing sentence, did
not. It appears, neglect to ask the pris
oner what he had to say why sentence
should not be Imposed, but did neglect
to Inform McCormick of the verdict of
the jury. It was for that reason that
the sentence waa reversed. The case is
exactly similar to one that came up from
Otoe county In 1S75, wherein a man named
Dodge waa sentenced for a murder la
Chase county and was sentenced without
having been Informed of the verdict of the
jury. This esse was sent back ao that the
sentence could be pronounced over again.

DAKOTA City, Neb., Nor. 21. (Special.)
Mel C. Beck, who waa defeated by J. J.
McAllister, democrat, for county attorney
by aeventeen vote, at the last election, has
fled contest proceedings, and aaking for
a recount of the votes. In County Judge
Emmera' court. Mr. Beck allege that
enough votes were Illegally counted for the
contestee In the different voting precincts,
to change the result of the election. Mr.
Beck baaea hla strongest hopes, however,
on the following grounds: For several year
past the democrata and peoples' Independent
parties have fused county offices, as against
the republican and citizens. Interest In
the people' Independent party was at so
low an ebb the past year, that no county
convention nor nomination for the office of
county attorney waa made by them. How
ever, when the different election board of
the county canvaased the vote east, all
"straight peoples' Independent ticket were
counted for J. J. McAllister, the contestee,
and the contestant allegea that enough of
aald vote were so illegally counted to
change the reault In hi favor. Mr. Beck's
eontentlona seem to be well based, the only
question being aa to the number of
"atralght" people' Independent vote be
ing cast in the county, whether sufficient
to change the reault or not.

Colds Lead to Catarrh Catarrh
Leads to Consumption.
NINE CASES of consumption out of ten
occur In this way:
A peraon catchea a cold. Tbe cold ia
not properly cured, and they quickly catch
another one. This cold Is dilly-dallied
w-lth by no treatment, or some treatment
that la Ineffectual, and the cold continue.
Then they catch another cold and begin
to cough. Then they take cough syrups,
but they do no good.
By and by they get tired of taking medi
cine, and give up In despair.
Their cold contlnuea, and their cough
grow worse. Then they apply to a doctor,
only to discover that they are In the Brat
stages of consumption.

course of Peruna before It waa too late.
She had caught aeveral colds, then a cough
developed. She took all sorts of cough

hour, passes but some one has a similar
experience with Peruna.

to cure it promptly. The third step I
