last of May, resided in a little hut Which
she had erected upon tho school house

she had the stable torn down and her
household goods removed to North

going away for good she set fire to some
rubbish in the yard and did not extin

caught in the coal-shed which was a
mass of flames when disppvered"by Louis
Tillion and mother who reside neaj by

ceeded in subduing the fire, and thus
saved the school house and other build

Hansen was not very well pleased when
the vote was taken for her to remove her
buildings from the yard and was also
more or less out of humor when she
found out that the niajdrity of the peo

having tho school for another term.

days within which time she. was re
quested by a vote of the district to re?

served and she immediately made

rode up to North Platte on his wav homo

he grew quite confidential with other
young men of his age, and leading them
to a room, opened his trunk and showed
them a stock of stationery and notions
that would have answered to start a man
in business in a small way. Pencils by
the bunch, erasers, rulers, inkstands,
paper, envelopes, penholders and "many
other articles, too numerous to mention,"
all belonging 4o the state had somehow

to North Platte in the trunk of tho son
of the man who proposed to inaugurate
reform by damning tho constitution and
defying the courts.
Shrader, the indeppndent nominee for
ieutenant-governor, tho man who
damned the constitution, and counselled
defiance of the courts, was talking to
three soldiers in Callaway recently, and
wffi6ing a grand army button oh one of
them, pointed lo it and said: "My
friend, don't you think you havo worn
that long enongh? Don't you think you
had better take it off and forget about
the war? I fought for my country and
used to wear one of those buttous, too,

know how much of jrn army record Mr,
Shrader had, began an investigation and
found that he enlisted in 1SQ5 a fow
weeks before tho war closed and never
got iartber south than Chicago. Tho
gentleman who hunted up the record ex
onerates Shrader from all blame for being
ashamed to wear a grand army button
and says ho would likewise be ashamed
to wear one on such a record as Shra

put upon the market lately, as a result

Dusky Diamond Soap, a soap adapted to

peculiar combination- they are- enabled

one that needs to be told that tar is re
cognized as tho greatest of the healing
agents. It also is recognized for its
softening qualities, and any one troubled
with f hard hands, cracked hands, sore
