Lewis Wagner was born Oct. 25, 1846, in Heidelbury, Saxony, in the German Empire and came to America in 1873 locating near I Dexter, Iowa. He was married to Hannah Anna Housewert near Earlham November 2, 1876. To this union were born seven children, three sons and four daughters, all of whom are living save the third son who died in infancy. In 1889 he moved with his family to Ogallah, Kansas, near which place he died Oct. 19, 1907, at the age ef 60 years, 11 months and 26 days. He had been in. poor health for the last fourteen years, suffering from asthma and was forced to take to his bed Sept. 20 last, and grew gradually worse until death relieved him- The immediate cause of his death was dropsy. Mr. Wagner was a very indus trious man and one of the sub stantial citizens of the neighbor hood. His farm was finely im proved and kept up in first class order. He was a man of the strictest business integrity, one of those men of whom it is often said that "his word was as good as his bond." He will be great ly missed in the neighborhood.

PATTE RMS IOC BY MAIL 12 CENTS- G W CROSS ELLIS - - - - KANSAS Last Saturday evening be tween nine and ten o'clock the inhabitants of our town were startled by what they supposed was an explosion of dynamite in the hands' of some fellow bent upon giving the people a scare, but it was soon learned that it was the cement building in I. T. Purcell's yard which contained the acetylene gas plant. Gas had escaped in the vault and Mr. Purcell went to the cellar to start a fire in the furnace, and as soon as he struck a match a pipe con necting with the cement build ing and full of the escaping gas immediately ignited and in an instant followed to the vault with which it was connected and in less time than it takes to tell it the building was blown to pieces. The jar could be felt by many who were at home saying that windows rattled and foundations shook. The building also con tained the gasoline engine and pumping apparatus which was used for the water supply.: The engine and pump were not dam aged, but the gas plant was en tirely destroyed. The loss will probably be in the neighborhood of five or six hundred dollars. Fortunately no one 'was injured or none of the other property near the building destroyed.
