Tho boy was brought Into this city Sunday afternoon accompanied by a physician from Gothenburg and taken to tho hospital. Dr. T. J. Kerr was called and they operated upon him at onco but tho operation failed to save his life. As near as anyono has been ablo to discover tho young man was attempt ing to board a freight train In tho Gothenburg yards and slipped under tho wheels. Both legs wero cut off above the knees ami ho lost consider able blood. Ho regained consciousness a little while before ho was brought to this city nnd told tho nttendlng phy sician wlioro his homo was and gavo his parents' names. After ho was brought hero he did not fully regain consciousness until after the operation. Ho was suffering so with tho shock that his senses wero dulled nnd ho was unablo to make any detinue statement, no rauiea after tho operation and then' later be gan to sink and expired during tho night. Tho relatives of tho boy, who live In San Diego, California, were noti fied yesterday and tho officials are waiting to hear from them beforo mak ing any disposition of tho body.

All members aro asked to havo their questions for tho box prepared boforo they get there so there will ho no delay In gottlng them out of the way. A Protest. In ono of tho Into local papers It is said, "In ns much ns Roy Roberts, con demned murdcror, was allowed to spend his boyhood and young man hood In North Platto undor condi tions that nro anything but favorable, tho ladles of tho Twentieth Century Club aro to clrculnto a petition which will bo sent to Governor Moorohcnd, asking him to commute tho death sentence to llfo Imprisonment." Ono of tho members is reported to havo described tho torrlblo conditions un dor which this young man has been al lowed to grow up in this community. Sho so impressed it upon hor uudl enco that almost any ono in this com munity would bo In exnetly tho snmo condition that Roborts Is now In If they hnd to grow up In his surround ings. I protest against tho charge as a libel and slandc ngnlnBt our boys; against tho .'nthcrs and mothers of our city. I am a resident of over n quarter of a century nnd a father. Had this club looked over tho names of tho business men of our town and county it no doubt would havo been surprised to find tho great number who wero born, raised and educated In this community. Had it inoulred about our absent boys it no doubt would have been surprised at being informed timt they are scattered from Now York to California; that they aro filling high postttons in tho business, educational and govermontal affairs, wherever they are located, with credit to thom solvcs, their country and tho town whero thoy woro raised. Had It mado a little inquiry, It would havo learned that Roy Roborts was not "raised In lb Is community;" and that no boy raised In this comniunlty has over been charged with such a horrlblo crime. But It Is easy to criticise nnd find fault. Deep water runs still, tho nolso Is mado upon tho riffles. If this club has no higher object thnn to criticise, than to alandor our boys and tho fathers and mothers of tho community, It had better disband, or enlist moro of tho noble motners 01 our town In Its membership for womanly counsel and motherly wis dom. Llfo is earnest, life Is real and It Is the earnest, real work that brings real results, and not crleij from the housetops How much moro commen dable tho meeting of this club would have been, had It beon devoted to an earnest and real effort to find a good homo In which to place Roborts' little sister; a place and a homo whero sho can havo a chance to crow up to noblo womanhood; and this city Is full of Just such homes; how much more commendable, If It engaged Itself In spreading tho "broad mantlo or cnar Ity" to help tho mother cover past mis steps; how much moro commendable had it engaged itself in extenuing some kind words nnd kind deeds, to the mother as an encouragement fpr better life; or procuring for her White Sale! 1 1 AT i ii in THE LEADER Now is the time to buy your Spring and Summer needs in White Goods.
