She "was out riding in company with 3Irs. W. D. Waldo andhad bees to the fair ground to drive on the track. On coming out Mrs. Waldo got oat of the buggy to close the gate, when the horse started at a moderate pace, Miss Walsh being unable to control him, which aeon developed into a run. Miss Walsh was thrown to the ground with great vio lence sustaining severe bruises and inter val injuries, the extent of which are not yet fully determined. After"running distance the horse freed himself the bujrsrv bv breaking the fills returned to -where Mrs. Wakioras ins. CP. Iddlntya Lumber and CoaL . Holbook, dentist, Thcelecke's DIOCK.

Rheumatism, and similar diseases, caused by a low state of the system, are cured by using Ayer's Sarsaparllla. A gentleman in town from Red Wil low precinct reports quite a number of new settlers preparing to go east to spend the winter. The many friends of I. K. Neely will be pleased to learn that he is conval escing from his serious illness. He is still at the Plant ranch. North Platte has been put on the storm signal station list "by order of Gen. Hazen. "Mr. Fitzgerald, having his flag in readiness, awaits the coming of the blizzard. Among the minor improvements made this week the scribe notices the new awning at the Thoelecke block and a rear addition to Smith Clarke's resi dence. A new sidewalk on the west side of Spruce in front of Buc'rworth, BJxler & Kelty's office would be an improvement greatly desired. The old tetcer-totterish affair is a disgrace to the city. Monday was one of the busiest days at the government land office experienced for some time. The incumbents are anx ious for the newly appointed officers to qualify and get ready for work. It will be found no boy's play. Mr. Calhoun on Monday left at this office a turnip sowed on the 4th day of August which measured seven inches in diameter. It was raised on his place on the north side, and was a pretty good sample for less than eighty daj's growth. A fine constitution may be broken and ruined by simple neglect. Many bod Dy ills result from habitual constipation.

" Some "of the candidate', Though, not very strong physically, are said to be good at tearing down fences and 'keep their op ponents pretty busy at work repairing the gaps. Political pastures are not very green just now anyway, and the sheep are liable to stray unless care jully watched. No regular meetings have been held, but candidates have made a thorough canvass of the county, interviewing the voters in person. The still hunt is gen erally the most effective and gets in its work without blow or bluster, besides giving the people a better opportunity to become acquainted with those who ask their votes. The campaign has been con ducted in a very sociable manner. A gentleman and lady were in town this week working up the paper bag ad vertising scheme and strange to say se cured quite a number of patrons. The Tribuxe office did the printing and charged a good round price, which was some benefit, but we doubt if business men.receive much from that way of ad vertising. The Toung People's Society, organ ized at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Belton oa Friday evening of last week, will meet at the ho'me of Mr. :md Mrs. W. B. Conk lin on nest Monday evening. All inter ested m the promotion of the social in terests of the Presbvterian church and communitv are cordially invited. Rev. Jon- HorKixs, Pres't. Attornevs were busv Monday taking depositions before 2sotarv Public Hoag land in the case of Caroline E. Dowd against the Union Pacific Railway Com pany now nendiner in the U. S. district court. The action, it will be remembered, is for $5,000 damages brought by Mrs. Dowd for the death of her husband sev eral years ago. Messrs. Neville and Hin man & Nesbitt appeared for the plaintiff ad Mr. Thurston, of Omaha, came up to look after the interests of the compan Isaac Lamplugh has had a number of carp from his lake on exhibition this week. Oae was nearly two feet lonir and very broad and thick, probabty a two-year-old, aad was estimated to weisrh ten pounds The other was not so large, supposed to be from this year's spawn. The fish are evidence of what can be raised in Lincoln county waters, and others who have fav orable ground should follow Mr. L's ex amnle. There can hardly be a question of ks profitable nature, even in small ponds, where fresh water can be supplied. The First National Bank at Kearney has adopted a scheme to which the atten tion of the banks of this city is respect fully invited. A larce number of safety deposit boxes have lean placed in the fire-proof vault. Each box is fur nished with two kevs, and the renter of the box cannot onen ii. without the inser tion of a kev owned by the bank, nor can the officers of the bank open the box without the key in the possession of the renter. The boxes are about two feet deep, made of chilled steel and the locks of Tale make. Nearly every body has valuable papers, and sometimes jewelry, diamonds, &c, and desires a safe place to keep them. In the case above cited the boxes rent for $ 2.50 per year, a very reas onable sum. See notice of estray horses elsewhere in these columns. Any information in regard to them may be left at this office. The closing service at Unitarian Hall postponed by reason of illness will be held on Sunday eveninc, Nov. 1st. Sub ject "A Plea for Women." A sliirht snow one day this week Indicated "that winter is close upon us, but he still withholds his icy grip. There is consolation in the fact that coal bins are generally well filled. Fine fruits and confectionery at Shannon Bros', restaurant. R. H. Langford was quite sick for a couple days early in the week with a threatened attack of malarial fever, but by heroic efforts succeed in "standing off" the unpleasant visitor. Attention is called to the advertise ment of Messrs. Scmalzried & Hinton. The cigars manufactured by this firm are made from pure leaf tobacco and in buy inrr their goods there need be no fear of getting shoddy stuff. Two representatives of the Omaha Herald spent several days in the city this week for the purpose of taking sketches of our town and business men.the same to appear in to-morrow's issue of that metro politan journal. Fall. Millinery. Mrs. Mackle has a complete lino of new millinery to which she invites the attention 01 ladies. A first-class trimmer i3 in attendance, and no pains will be spared to please. W. J. Barnes has sold his interest in the restaurant business to the shannon boys, Tom, Dick and Harry, who will conduct the business at the old stand. The style of the new firm will be Shan non Bros., and the boys, though young, are full of business and. will succeed. The house recently erected on Second street iust south of Mr. Lvans' residence has been rented to J. E. White who will re move his family from Grand Island to this city at an early day. Mr. and Mrs. White have long held high social posi tions in the Island and will no doubt hold a corresponding place among our people. The Knights of Labor of this city are making preparations for a ball to be given at Lloyd's rink, Thursday evening, Nov. 25th. From the well-known enter prise of those having the matter in charge it is fair to predict the hop will be large ly attended and prove a success socially and -financially. If you want a cigar that is worth smoking a fine imported article go to Shannon Bros., in the old postoffice building. Much complaint is expressed br set tlers in the southern part of the county at the irregularity of the mail service on the star routes m that vicinity. Just where the fault lies is not known but it is asser ted that it frequently takes from three to four weeks to get a letter from the rail road either north or south. An inspector should give this matter an investigation and see if matters cannot be remedied. A pleasant little party of young folks was held at the residence of J. D. beamau last Saturday evening, the occasion being the tlurteenth anniversary of Master Frank Seaman's birth, being given by the young gentleman to celebrate the event Among those present were Misses Majrgie Kocken, Daisy Cruzen, Leora Stevens, Fannie and Ida Brown, Belle Adamson and Clara Ruth, and Masters Curtis Hinman, Frank Ormsby, Perry Jackson, Arthur and Walter Hoagland. It is needless to say Frank did the honors of host in a manner that made all of the people feel at home and they wilL long remember the pleasant time had on that occasion. . Considerable complaint is made at the manner in which the grader, under direction of the county commissioners, is tearing up the roads on the south side. Places that never were bad, it is alleged, are made almost impassable. The ma chine is probably a good thing although expensive, and the board should use some discretion in its use. The expense of operation is twenty-five dollars per day and it strikes the" average tax-payer that it should not be used where work is not required. There are no doubt many places on the bottom where it can be used advantageously, but when those places are made passable some deference should be given to the condition of the county treasury. In- the pfesent shape of our county finances economy is suggested and demanded by the people. We hope the board will act on this suggestion and avoid all useless expenditure of the peo ple's money. A number of those interested in socie ty met at the treasurer's office Wednesday evening and effected a reorganization of the Terpsichorean Club oflast season, the name being changed to Apollo. The meeting being called to order the follow ing officers were unanimously elected: President, Chas. F. Iddings; Vice-President, H. S. Keith ; Secretary and Treas urer, R. L. Graves, and the President ap pointed Ira L. Bare, W. H. McDonald, C. C. Hawkins, R. L. Graves and A. J. Mitch ell as an executive committee. The con- PSfiSONAL. J. E.

Levi Carter, of Omaha, a member of the firm of John Bratt & Co., stock growers, was in town a couple days the early part of the week Milo Burke, foreman for the Big Horn Cattle Company, came down from Wyom mg Saturday ana remained several aays visiting mends hereabouts. Mr. Barkalow, of Omaha, son in-law of the lately deceased Kev. Dr. Mcamara, arrived m the city Sunday and attended the funeral services next day. Master John Baker, who has been with Mr. Cody's Wild West Show the past year and a half, came in from St Louis Sun day and has been spending the week with" his parents. Johnnie, as perhaps most of our readers know, is the champion boy rifle shot of the world, the many medals worn on his person attesting his remarka ble skill. Traveling seems to agree with him as he is looking splendid. Vote for the Bridge. In voting on the bridge bond proposi tion, be sure that your ballots read for is- ng bonds. Most of the tickets are printed in the affirmative, but some dis tributed in the country by candidates who i r ji a. a v . . aia not care 10 antagonize ineir interests by an apparent endorsement of the. meas ure, are printed with a blank "sace for writing in either the word for or against Where these ballots are used, this should be filled in all cases by the word "for," as to vote blank is almost equivalent to vo ting in the negative. The Walk-Out Monday. Mr. Shannon has received notice by telegraph that his commission as receiver of the land office was signed and for warded on the 28th, the bond having been approved. Although not positively known, it is presumed Mr. Neville's bond has been approved and commission is sued, and that they will both arrive here together, probably to-day or to-morrow. In that case the new officers will take possession Monday and the old ones walk out It is expected that the office will be moved to the Keith opera house block, where all those doing business before the land office are anxious to locate. Later. The commissions arrived this morning. Death of EL N. Searle. Edward N. Searle, formerly a resident of this city, died at the Nebraska insane asylum near Lincoln on Tuesday of this week, in the thirty-sixth year of his age, after suffering for over three years from the effects of injuries received in a rail road accident on the Northern Pacfic road. Mr. Searle was formerly a conductor on the Union Pacific and was one of the early settlers of this city, where he. was. highly esteemed. His injuries produced mental derangement and it was found necessary to send him to the asylum in hopes that skillful treatmentthare might restore his reason. For a time there was such improvement that he was discharged with the hope of soon regaining his full mental strength. But he soon suffered a relapse and hi3 friends were reluctantlv compelled to give up all hope. For two years he had been gradually failing, and for the past six months death was looked for at anj' moment About six weeks ago the writer saw him at the asylum and when spoken to for one brief moment there was an apparent return of rational thought, but it instant vanished and his mind began to wander. Poor Ed, he has gone, but his old comrades aud friends will always cnerisn nis memory with the kindest feelings. He was a member of the Masonic order and his remains were buried on Thursday of this week by by Platte Valley Lod'ge A. F. & A M. of this city. His life was. insured in a Mason ic mutual society tor hve thousand dollars and the premiums had been paid during the past three years alternately by the Lodge in this city and in Grand Island, but only recenth a lapse of three da's was unfortunately allowed to take place and the society took advantage of this to cancel ihe policy, demanding a certificate of gooc? health before renewal. This of course could not be given, for he was practically dead at the time. Efforts will be made with fair prospects of success to secure this sum for the benefit of the widow and three orphan children. . . i- . 'Mir .-. V HIS XASTHLY C?1 CLOSED. v4- stitution and by-laws governing last sea son's club were adopted without change. It was decided to hold the initial hop on Friday evening, November 13th, which rio doubt will be an unusually brilliant af fair. Those persons who were psed upon as being eligible to membership can obtain tickets by applying to the sec retary. Oysters in every style at Shannon Bros' restaurant Fred Fulmer while hunting Monda near the junction of the North and South rivers saw an animal which his excited imagination at first pictured to be a young wildcat or possibly a small mountain iioa. The beast was devouring a bird wliich it had recently killed, and when Fred broke in on its peaceful meal stood up on its hind legs with one paw resting on the bird and the other extended towards Fred in a manner as much as to say "shake." This was not in accordance with Fred's program, and he sent a volley of goose shot into the animal which speedily put an end to its earthly pilgrimage. It was a peculiar animal, evidently not common in these parts. Being brought to town it took several scientists to discover its true genus. Evidently belonging to the wea sel family, it differed from that well known animal in size and color. It was about twelve inches long and very slim, with a rich golden brown coat. It proved to be a golden ferret, and is supposed to have escaped from some one traveling through the country. Several counties have been endeavor ing to issue bonds for the construction of court houses and jails, but there has been a question as to whether these were works of internal improvement contem plated by the law for the building of which bonds may be issued. A case be ing brought to test the matter, the su preme court this week decided bonds is sued for such purposes invalid. By this decision Lancaster county has her court house bonds nipped in the bud, Lincoln county jail bonds faring the same fate. Keith county was also trying to issue court house and jail bonds, but further efforts in that line are now rendered un- . - necessary. In our own county the oonas were prepared more than a year ago, but never negotiated, although parties at one time offered to take one-half of them in Vote For Bridge Bonds. By asking your vote3 in favor of the above I wiah to prove as far as in my power that it is to the public interest and if I am able to clear up this doubt then you can act and work in good faith. If you wish the greatest of prosperity, build up the country, and this can be done speedily having close by good direct roads to every quarter, east west, north and south. I will not take into consideration the value of the country further north than the foot of the bluffs and from Gan nct to the Birdwood. We have in this strip of country several thousand tons of hay that could and would be marketed if the road to the railroad station was made nearer by eight miles on the round trip. If a market could not be found here it could and would be baled and shipped west- and the money be brought here and spent amongst us. One year's product alone from here would more than pay for the bridge. Heretofore we have been sending money away for supplies, con sider how much it will be to put a stop to this by bringing money here for supplies instead of sending it away. The mere cost of the bridge is a mere trifle taking into consideration the revenue that must be derived by building up your country by making close and convenient roads. Good and direct roads bring to you all cheaper supplies. This is an undisputa- ble fact and why hesitate in making your roads shorter to all parts of the county. It gives encouragement to farmers to buy up the land, put it under actual and im mediale cultivation and improvement. In doing this you diminish taxes and this is the only thing that will diminish them. Then'would it not be the interest of every man in the county to assist and have the bridge built and the country developed. There can certainly be no reasonable ar gument used against the pushing forward of this work. There is also ground enough in this space mentioned to pro vide" North Platte with all the provision necessary for consumption. Twenty thousand bushels of grain can be raised on the foot of the bluffs from Gannett to the Birdwood. The land all through from Gannett to Birdwood has been proven valuable for farming, and grass growing. Now if you favor this work be sure and erase the word "against" on your ticket in other words scratch, out the payment for the iron work of the jail and words "against bonds. If your tickets wiii count against EXTERPRIBE. we believe the balance couiu u e wcu sold at a discount As it now stands di rfH.t, taxation seems to be the only means of securing the improvementdesiredL and this although harder at Irrtf will be cheaper in the ead. are not scratched they ine improvement you cant sleep for cougkmc take' a dose of ChamWrlaia's CoegE Remedy.

Dr. McNamara had bees stricken with paraly sis and could live but a few hours. The Doctor came down town about 9 o'clock feeling auite well. After going to the postofflce and receiving the congratula tions of. several parties on the street on his Improved appearance, having just re turned from Omaha where he had been for medical treatment he went to the of- flee of Lester Eells to attend to business connected with the church. After hav ing been there a short time he began to talk in a hesitating, incoherent manner, and Mr. Eells immediately noticed that he was very sick. Dr. Clark was sum moned as quick as possible and the seri ous nature of the attack was at once ap parent The sufferer was conveyed to his home In an Insensible condition about 11 o'clock and never spoke afterwards, al though he was able for a short time to manifest intelligence. His last breath was drawn about 6 o'clock and a good man closed his earthly work loved and mourned by our whole people. John McNamara was born in Ireland in 1821, and came to this country when scarcely more than an Infant He was taken into the family of Dr. Muhnenburg of New York City, who regarded him as a son. At an early age he evinced a de sire to study, and was in the habit of reading every book to which he could obtain access. In order to foster this de sire, Dr. Mahneabarg seat him to St Paul's Seminary at Flushing, L. I., where he attained the greater part of his secular education. From the time his ideas first began to mature and shape themselves definitely in his brain he took a deep in terest in religious matters. When com paratively a young man he was ordained as an Episcopal clergyman. He was progressive in his ideas, and was anxious to bear the brunt of the battle. He ac cordingly chose a missionary life, and soon after his ordination was located in Geneva Lake, Wis., in 1850, but soon after went to St Joe, Mo., as missionary in that city and adjacent parts. Returning to Wisconsin for a brief period, 1856 found him in Kansas as a missionary and an ar dent worker in the cause of freedom. His work in different portions of that state in building up churches, aud the re sult of his devout policy made a deep impression upon the regions where he was located. He afterward moved to Wisconsin, settling at Kenosha, where he was living at the outbreak of the war. Again his progressive views asserted themselves and he joined the First Wis consin infantry as chaplain and started for the front where he thought he could do the most good for God and humanity. After the war he was parish clergyman at .LaUrosse and Whitewater, also doing mis sionary work. In lcb9 he came to Nebraska, being lo- I cated at Nebraska City as President of Nebraska College, a church institution, remaining six years, when he was called by Dr. Muhnenburg to New York to take charge of St Johnland Home for children and aged people and also acted as assistant chaplain of St Luke's Hospi tal. N. Y. After Dr. 3Iuhnenburg's death he was again called to take charge of Ne braska College where he served until as signed to this parish a little over a year ago, and there is no place that will regret his loss more. Dr. McNamara was an earnest preacher and at times was exceed ingly eloquent He was a warm friend, a christian gentleman and a maa of the greatest of charity for the failings of others. His. many brilliaat aad social Sualities made him a wdrersal favorite 1 society, and "daring the war he is said to have been the most popular man i& the regiment He was almost the first man ia the church to tak a bold staod in fa vor or the abolition 01 slavery. He dm not believe in the institution of slavery and fought it in the pulpit and out Some time previous to John Brown's attempt to capture Harper's Ferry he wrote a book on slavery which at the time created wide-spread attention. His work received much adverse criticism from the church for awhile, but the reaction soon set in and the great truths he expressed were accepted for what they were worth and the book was highly esteemed. Dr. MciN amara's health had been grad ually failing for a year or more. Some months since he had. a slight attack of paralysis, which seemed lo affect his eyes, but he was able to continue his work. About three weeks ago this affection be came so bad that he decided to go to Omaha for treatment and had just re turned from that city the day before his death, having experienced only slight re let and it was his intention to return Sunday evening for continued treatment Hcseemed to have a premonition that he would not live many months, but it was evident he did not expect death immedi ate!', as he was unusually cheerful on the morning of the fatal "day. He was prepared however as few men are and lad no fears of the future, lhe funeral services were conducted in the church in this city by "Rev. Dr. Oliver of Kearney. Kev. Dr. Dougherty and Uanon ratterson of Omaha, the funeral being preached by Dr.Dougherty, a long and intimate friend. The remains were taken to Lake Geneva, Wis., for interment in the family burying plot, where several 01 his children are sleeping. A beautiful stock to and select -from.
