The Tribune
F. M. & E. M. KIMMELL ,
Editors and Publishers.
Official City and County Paper.
THE work of laying rails on the Hold-
redge branch was commenced on Tues
day of this week.
JOHN McCuLLOUGH , the celebrated
tragedian , has been pat in the insane
asylum at Bloomington.
THE Red Cloud Helmet by Will N.
King is the latest addition to the jour
nalism of the valley , we believe.
THE Norfolk Journal will either have
to hire a printer or send us a key. We
are not connoisseurs of hieroglyphics.
WE see it stated that Cheyenne coun
ty will shortly be formed into three
counties. There is enough land in Chey
enne to make three large counties.
WE are indebted to the Pairbury Ga
zette for a copy of the Jefferson County
premium list for the annual fair to be
held September 1 4,1885. . The book
is from the Gazette presses.
THE Gosper County Citizen , which
has moved to the new town Elwood , says
that the Lincoln Land Co. , owners of
the town , have agreed to expend $2,000
in the construction of waterworks for
the free use of the city.
THE Kaleidoscope is the name of B.
H. Montgomery's new paper at Cam
bridge. We are at a loss to understand
the matter , but presume the editor of
the Kaleidoscope will illume our mind
upon the why-fore , in his issue , which
will appear next week.
THE Pall Mall Gazette publishes a
proclamation of the Ameer of Afghan
istan , issued in 1882 , but which has not
hitherto found its way into western lit
erature , reviewing the history of the Af
ghans and claiming that they are the de
scendants of the ten tribes of Israel. It
traces their descent from Adam through
Jacob , their subjection in Egypt , their
deliverance by Moses , their wanderings
in the desert and their settlement in Syr
ia under the ameership of Saul and Sol
omon , to their Eabalonian captivity ,
their release , their wanderings on the
hills of Ghour , and their final settle
ment in Afghanistan. It concludes by
exhorting his people to trust in God ,
who will preserve them from their ter
rible enemy , Russia , who is waiting to de
vour them. It has been noticed by all
recent tourists in Afghanistan that the
resemblance of the Afghans to the Jews
is remarkable , and possibly the ameer
is assisting to solve a great ethnological
mystery by recalling the traditions of
his nation.
DIED.
By request we publish the following
obituary. The deceased , who so bravely
met death is the son of Mr. Angel and
brother of Mrs. H. C. Jacobs of this
place. The article is taken from the
Denison ( Iowa ) Review :
ANGEL IiiDenison , on Saturday , June 7th ,
Albert Angel , aged 1C years , by drowning- ,
in the Boyer river , while endeavoring to
give assistance to the Jerome Bhickman
family.
"Greater lovehathho man than this : thata
man lay down his life for his friends. "
Thus saycth the Son of Man. Youns Angel
was not even acquainted with the persons
struggling for life in imminent peril , butrs
have the evidence of eye witnesses that he
urged his horse into the water three times to
render aid. He had fallen from his horse once
already but ventured into the water again ,
when he fell and was drowned.
Christianity is of value to humanity for three
things : It declares the immortality of the soul ;
urges a God-like life ; it promises eternal bliss
to those who believe and persevere to the end.
It is surprising that ministers of the gospel
the embassadors of the Savior should so of
ten fail at the supremo moment when the white
banner of victory ought to bo wafted in trL
umph over the grave , by halting hesitancy and
uncertainty of sound.
The last and crowning act of Albert Angel's
life being one of supreme anddisinterested de
votion exceeding that of the good Samaritan
a devotion which overcame the lovo of life
and the fenr of death , we pronounce the judg
ment by authority of the Savior's promise that
those who lay down their lives foctheir friends
have trodden 1n his footsteps , and have com
plied with his commands. If the thief upon
the cross could be saved there isnot aparticle
oC doubt that Albert Angel is a welcome guest
in the realms of bliss , for of such is the king
dom of heaven.
On the 30th day of May tho soldiers' graves
were strewn with flowers in commemoration
of their disinterested devotion to the country.
Peace also presents opportunities to crown
one's life uith tho laurel wreaths of victory.
By every test that can be applied , AJbert An
gel's act was one of bravery an J disinterested
ness , and just such youths as he rushed to arms
twenty-five years ago at tho country's calland
would go to-day.
Mr. Angel's body was found qn Wednesday
morning. It was tondcrly cared for , and tho
funeral services which were held in tho court
house square at 3 P. M. , were well attended.
Extracts from the Scriptures were read and a
prayer was made. While time did not permit
of more extended services or of the organiza
tion of a choir , which was greatly missed we
hope that there will be union services in the
Court House square after the other victims of
the calamity are buried.
The sorrow-stricken parents ha\o our pro-
foundest sympathy. They must notlook down
into tho waters nor into the grave for their
beloved boy. He still lives. He is yet among
us. He will reach out his Iiand when they
stnijrjlo through tho dark waters that divide
life ami death , and land them safely on tho G
shining shore of heaven.
