The Curfew Didn't Ring That Night-
George Thuman. a very prominent business
man of Oconto, about two weeks ago hired
a livery team, drove across to Lexington
and from there went to Cheyenne, Wyo.,
where he was last seen and has not been
heard from since. As near as we can leain
it is as stated helow: He was a member
of the Evangelical church at that place,
and usually rang the bell. He left the
houie, his wife thinking he was going to
ring the bell, but the bell didn't ring.
Later they learned he drove to Lexington
and then went to Cheyenne. It Is stated
that he has a good paying business at
Oconto, and also that there were no do.
meatic troubles to bolher him. It Is hoped
that things will turn out all right, but It
seems to bs creating much talk, by the
manner In which he took, his leave. Calla
Nebraska Curiosity Last week J. H.
Elllnger uncovered entirely a petrified
tree., in his sand r It . It was no easy Job,
and with the united help of three teams
and scrapers towards the decline of day
the stone tree was laid bare. Its full
length measures from twelve to fourteen
feet, and Is three feet thick st one end
and two and a half feet thick at the other
end. It was burled In the sand about ten
to fifteen feet, and will probably weigh
some six or seven tons. It Is a remarkable
thing that the tree Is apparently cut square
or even at each end. It Is not Jagged at
the ends aa might be expected from the
wear and tear of time It la certainly a
very valuable find. both, historically and
geologically. It Is J. H. Ellingf r a Inten.
