YOUNG MAN IS ADJUDGED INSANE Taken Before Insane Commission on Saturday and is Ordered Taken to Clarinda for Treatment. Guy Nixon, a young man making his home with his mother, Mrs. Laura Nixon, in Denison, was on Saturday taken before the insane commission and adjudged of unsound mind and or dered taken to Hhe'hostfftal at Clarin da. Sheriff Cummings took him to Cla rinda Saturday evening. Saturday forenoon Nixon went into the candy kitchen and purchased an ice cream cone, and after eating it stepped over to the show window and began eating candy. One of the pro prietors suggested that perhaps he wished to purchase some of the candy and Nixon said perhaps he would and kept on eating. When the proprietor again suggested that he buy some candy or pay for what he had eaten, Nixon pulled a revolver from his pock et and backed out of the room, going over to the Godbersen barber shop. Word was sent for the marshal, who went to the shop, and approaching the young man, asked him if he had a gun, to which Nixon replied that he had. The marshal asked for it, but was refused and upon reaching to take hold of him, Nixon attempted to draw the gun. The marshal grabbed his wrist and held it, but was tripped and both the marshal and Nixon fell to the floor, with Nixon on top and the marshal still holding the gun hand Henry Moeller and Mr. Adams, who happened to be in the barber shop, went to the assistance of Marshal Weeks and secured the gun.

MENAGH5 CITY MARSHAL IAS STRENUOUS TIME Notwithstanding His Encounter With Nixon, Marshal Weeks Called to Officiate Three Times Monday COMPELLED TO USE STRONG ARM Prisoner George Anderson Becomes Unruly and Threatens the Marshal When Arrested. Chief of Police Weeks has been hav ing a strenuous time the past few days keeping tab on disorderlies. Af ter his encounter of Saturday with Guy Nixon he thought to have time in which to regain some of his lost breath and was only beginning to feel himself, when on Monday afternoon there came word from the Northwest ern pump house that his services were needed. One George Anderson was said to be on a rampage and when the marshal went after the fellow he met with a flat refusal and a volley of perfumed oaths. It took three pretty stiff taps from the strong arm of the law to subdue the said Anderson, and both Marshal Weeks and Deputy Burke to land the culprit where he would have an opportunity to regain his senses. Tuesday morning Ander son had so far recovered as to be able to promise to pay $10 and costs, and was allowed to resume work at the Nicholson produce plant, where he had been working. The same afternoon Thos. Fost or Frost, who has an appetite for straw hats and booze, became the object of entertainment for a good sized street crowd, and Marshal Weeks concluded the fellow needed a diet of canned tomatoes and therefore landed him in the recently constructed fly trap in the basement of the city hall, and on Tuesday morning Mr. Frost was permitted to roam in the cold, biting rain vith a promise to pay $5 and costs. When taken up Frost had in his possession three new straw hats Granite Tea Ket tles 9c ON REVIEW CL^i That are Special OllOt Uuns Priced This Week This week we offer extra quality double barreled shot-guns, blue steel, with Walnut stock, walnut fore-arm, guaranteed to shoot smokeelss powder, at only $11.98.

Mr. Klock likewise do nated $5 and costs and said it would be the last five, too. CHRISTIAN SCIENCE LECTURE. Clarence C. Eaton, of Tacoma, Wash., Delivers Interesting Lecture at Science Church Last Night. A small but appreciative audience listened last evening to an address on Christian Science by Clarence C. Eaton, of Tacoma, Wash., given un der the auspices of the local church of that denomination. Mr. Eaton i3 a pleasant speaker and handled his subject well, explaining some of the fundamental premises and conclusions of the system in a clear and satisfac tory manner. The members of the Christian Sci ence church ish it understood that, as stated in the lecture of last night, these lectures are not gven for the purpose of proselyting or getting more members into the church, but merely to correct the many misunderstand ings of its teachings which seem so widespread. Next Sabbath evening the choir of the Methodist church will give an evening of music. This servce will be at 7:30 p. m., the regular hour for preaching service. The choir is un der the able leadership of B. J. Sib bert, and has been developed in num bers and efficiency until it is in fine shape and is giving splendid service.
