Beatrice, Xeb., July 12. One of the
most fearful accidents ever recorded in

in cleaning bedsteads with gasoline,
when the cai containing the dangerous
fluid exploded and both women were in
stantly enveloped in flames. Before any
aid could be rendered both were burned so
fearfully that neither of them was recog
nized. Itwil. probably never be known

is supposed tnat while using the gasoline
one of the Indies lighted a match for the

of the work aad that the inflammable oil
was thus igni ed.

the Kreiders last fall Le took a fancy to
Annie Kreider, the eldest girh and made
improper proposals, but was always baf
fled in his purpose. The last attempt was
made the night of July 6. The girl resist

The Determination of a Fiend.
Bamberger determined to kill the whole
family. He went upstairs, shot D. S.
Kreider and came down and shot Mrs.
Kreider. The children waked up. Then
he shot Mercy, the first child. 1) years old:
May the next. 9 years; then David, aged 7.
Bernice, aged 13, jumped through the win
dow. The fiend followed and brought her
back and shot her. Mary, not quite dead,

A Lynching Party Arrives In Town.
The escape of the dastard from lynching
en route here was not to le the end of the
trouble, for shortly after dark a numlx-r
of determined men arrived here from Can
do, N. D., and were followed by an im
mense crowd and by 10 o'clock at leat
1.500 people had gathered and liegun clam
oring for Bamberger. The sheriff, how
ever, made a strong show of force and the
mob slowly withdrew.
There May He Trouble Yet.
All was confusion. The mob went into
consultation on the outskirts, and it was
lelieved that a -concerted and successful
attack would be made on the jail at mid
night. But at 12 o'clock it was evident
that the mob was leaderless, and many of
its members went home. The jail was
kept illuminated, and Sheriff Faddenhada
large posse inside. Any attempt at lynch
ing would prove abortive, it is believed,
though there is a feeling that the trouble
is not vet ended.

FrxtERTOS, July 12. Twenty masked
men went to Gay's hotel, where Andrew

hearing, and broke down the door. The
prisoner was being guarded by Deputy
Sheriff Bate, William Benson and Con
stablt JWilliam Ixng. of Genoa. As soon
as the door was broken down two of the
masked mob shoved their revolvers
through the door.
Bate shot his revolver twice into the
ceiling to intimidate the mob. At this
juncture some one pulled his revolver aud
shot the deputy, the ball striking the
right temple and glancing around the head
and down. The wound will not prove
fatal. The guards made a strong resist
ance and the balance of the mob, seeing
that bad work had been done, withdrew
and the murderer still lives.
