LINCOLN, Aug. 11. (Special Telegram.)-
The btate Health association and the Ep

tion, which is devoted to educational wor't
In eradicating tuberculosis and other dis
eases, say arrangements had been maUe
for holding the meeting in one or the

the assembly viewpoint. On the other hand,
L. O. Jones of the assembly officials sayn
he supposed the meeting was held as
scheduled in the building assigned. T hi
stories vary greatly and no one can be

CHESTER. Neb.. Aug 11. -t Special
The death of Miss Ruth Youngman at
the home of her parrnts in Chester this
morning is the climax to a series of sen
sational events which until now have been
kept from the public generally.
Miss Toungman was the daughter of Dr.
Youngman. who has practiced medicine
here for many years. About two years
ago Floyd lacey, a local barber, began
paying attentions to Miss Youngman.
w-hich was opposed vigorcusly by the
girl's parents. This, however, did not
change the minds of the young couple.
They frequently met and resolved to put
their earnings In a common fund, opened
a bank account In the girl s name and In
June, when the deposits had reached
$300. they planned their elopement. The
father learned of the bank account and
as the girl had not yet reached her 18th
birthday he Immediately appropriated
the funds for his own ut-e. Undaunted by
this the lover obtained other funds and
eloped with his sweetheart. A telephone
message from the Irate father asktd the
sheriff to receh e thrm at Belleville. Kan.,
and soon the couple was again In Chester.
Stung by the disobedience of their daugh
ter the father and mother determined to
break up the affair and for weeks re
fused to allow the girl to leave the house
without their company. Three weeks ago
the girl became ill from anxiety and grew
worse fiom day to day until her death

Ten Per Cent Collected on OH Packed

WASHINGTON, Aug. 11. The Standard
Oil rompaany will have to pay a duty of
about 10 per cent ad valorem on oil it has
exported Into the Philippine islands since
the new tariff bill became effective, al
though oil under that measure Is admitted
into the United Stales and the Philippines
free of duty. This imposition of the duty
results from the fact that the oil In ques
tion, "the growth and product of the
United States," was put up In cans made
from imported tin, on which the Standard
had accepted a drawback in view of the
fact that the tins were for the export
trade. Had the standard not asked for
and received the drawback on tin used in
making Its cans the oil. together with the
container, would have been admitted Into
the Philippines free. While the amount
of duty that will be paid by the Standard
on these shipments Is not large, the deci
sion Is regarded as of Importance In es
