ALL loyal and sympathetic beartf
go oat to Senator Thurston in the
sad and pathetic death of his noble
and brilliant wife , this week , while
on a visit to Cuba. The unspeak
able scenes of that desolate anc
scourged island were too much foi
the tender and loving heart of thai
grand American mother , who wat
stricken to her death by an attack
of heart disease. The remains were
brought to Omaha for interment
THE Papillion Times has just issued -
sued a very handsome and comprehensive -
prehensive Trans-Mississippi edi
tion of that paper. Elegant halJ
tones have been used in rich pro
fusion and the letter press is fort
unately devoid of anything exces
sive in the way of advertising.
The whole is beautifully printed
on super-calendered paper of a
mellow tint and is withal a highly
creditable advertising medium.
THE TRIBUNE has no part or par
cel in this unseemly discussion
about the Lorenz murder trial. It
deplores what has been said by
the other papers of the county. It
were better all of it had never
been written. It is sufficient that
Edward Loreuz did not have a
proper or adequate defense , and
that he will be given in his second
trial what he did not have in his
first one. He is entitled to it and
all unbiased citizens will be satis
fied with the result of the coming
trial There is only one other re
gret and that is that he was not
adequately defended at the first
Everybody is sowing wheat.
Mr. Culbertson has moved to
Mrs. E. May Starbuck's place.
Fred Burton has moved back to
his homestead in Hitchcock county.
Lee Williams and brother are

Ritchie place.
Grandma Simpson , mother of
P. M. Simpson of Vailton .died
on Saturday and was buried in
Longview cemetery , Monday after-1
noon. The family has the heart
felt sympathy of all their neigh
bors in their sad bereavement.
O. E. and O. L. Boone and A. D.
Lord and families started last Mon
day to their new home in Colorado.
They were all pleasant neighbors
and the community has sustained
a loss by their removal. We wish
them success in their new homes.
Somebody from McCook was
driving around in this part of the
country , last week , and found a
few of the people rather poorly
dressed , but you know that it is
fashionable in the country to dress
as you can and not as you please.
The good ship Maine at anchor
lay , In the harbor of Havana bay.
It was night and the sailors went
to sleep , Without any fear of the
treacherous deep , And no thoughts
of a cruel , revengeful foe That
was planning then to strike the
blow Which would take the lives
of the sailors brave , And sink them
low in a watery grave. The cap
tain sat in his cabin alone , Writing
letters to friends at home. He was
telling his wife of this foreign port ,
Where he truly hoped his stay
would be short. The watch was
pacing the deck , so they tell , And
Lad just called out , "All is well , "
When suddenly there came an
awful boom , Which sent the ship
to its eternal doom. Bill Anthony
to the captain groped his way , Sa
luted and said , "Excuse me , sir ,
but I have to say , The ship's blown
up and is sinking in Havana bay. "
No time for the sailors to shed a
tear , To think of home or offer a
prayer ; But the noble crew had
gone to sleep In the inky waters of
the treacherous deep. Some lie
beneath the rolling waves , While
others sleep in foreign graves.
But few were left of that gallant
band , To return to home and native
land. A nation mourns for brave
men gone , There's a vacant chair
in many a home ; A mother weeps
for her darling boy , And a father's
heart is dead to joy. And the
meanest thing done by cruel Spain ,
Was the wrecking of--the battle
ship Maine.
