"It came as a mas sage to my drooping system. For six months I have been getting out my paper in unbroken calm. So dull and uneventful that I couldn't get out an issue oftener than once in ten days. I was about six weeks behind. Some cruiser or stranger would come into my office onceinalong while, just to see what kind of an animal was pnblishing a sheet in the woods. Then they'd walk out sadly, minus the loan of some tobacco to me, and I would be alone again for another week. But I had two visitors yesterday. And both stimulated me a good deal. "T'he first was a woman with red hair and face. Her eyes -were "pied" one went up like a baloon the other hung down like* a parachute. She was so excited that some times her eyes looked like mates. She pushed the Blaze into my f#e. "Do you make this paper?" "Yes, madam at least it un makes me." 'Well, it tells about Len Smith getting married. Is it really so?" She pointed at a half tone in the paper. When I published my paper oVer in Slabtown I had a cut of Len Smith, so I used it a year later in my write-up of the marraige of Len Smith, hoping it would fit. All Smiths look a good deal alike, any way. Again she shrieked, "Where does he live?" "I don't know, I don't know him, but he lives up GK Rattle Brook, ten miles north." She howled around some more, then dashed out. Five minutes later a tall man with hands on him like a moose nose .walked in. He laid them carefully down on the ink stone, and rumbled slowly: "What are you putting my picture in your durn paper for and telling about my getting married?" I scented trouble then. "Didn't you get married?" "Not as any one knows." i'Then Lew Smith has." "Let him chew his own fodder. What's that got to do with my picture?" I began to explain, feebly, when that woman rushed in again. I rushed out. Her high voice buzzed in my ears as I plunged into the woods. I spent the afternoon figuring on where I would start my next paper if I escaped from Lew Smith, and if my outfit was saved from that whirling woman. I wus sneak ing home in the dusk when a big man stopped me. I was Lew Smith. "You are the editor I've been looking all over for." I didn't doubt it. "I want you to put something in your paper." Ah! Then he would let me live! Eagerly I began to express sorrow for my blunder. "Sorrow? Why, young man, you have done the best thing for me that could have happened. Say, I've been chasing that woman for four years, working full time. But she wouldn't have me. But when she thought I was married she came after me like an owl for breakfast. Here's $10, and give us a good sendoff. We've just been hitched. And, say, put in my picture with lots of ink on it. Here's $5 more for the ink. Spread it on thick." Death of B. W. Nelson. The following account of the death of B. W. N. Nelson, who for some time made his home in this city with his parents, is pub lished by request, and was taken from the columns of the Claire, Mich., Sentinel: The death messenger entered the home of Mr. and Mrs.G. B, W. Nelson Sunday and took away to that land from whence no traveler returns, their eldest son, B.W.N. Nelson, a young man of twenty two. Last Friday deceased was at work with his customed good cheer in his father's grocery store. In the evening he com plained of a cold and retired early. Saturday the symptons seemed still merely to indicate a sereve cold. But late that night he sud denly grew worse. A doctor was called and found pneumonia in its worse form. A second physician was called but all in vain. The disease was present in its most fatal form and 3.05 p. m. Sunday morning ths young man expired. The funeral oc curred from the home yesterday, Rev. W. J. Hathaway speaking words of consolation' to the be reaved family. Interment was made in Cherry Crove. B. W. N. Nelson was born at Belville, Ont., and subsequently moved with his parents to British Columbia and later to Bemidji, Minn. Finding the climate cold there, it was at the young man's request the family moved to Michigan and located at Clare early in December. In Clare he was fast gaining friends and showing marked interest in the work of the Epworth League of the M. E. church. At a meeting of that society Sunday evening several little incidents were re lated of his interest in their work and a floral tribute from them on his casket showed their kindly sympathy for the bereaved par ents. One brother. Cecil H., survives. The sympathy of the community is with the bereaved family in this hour of sorrow. The gro eery stores and a number of others with them closed during the time of the funeral. BANDITS DEFY CITIZENS. Battle at Martinsburg, Neb., Lasts Two Hours. Sioux City, la., Feb. 15.Behind a barricade made of farm implements three desperate robbers stood off the town of Martinsburg, Neb., while two of their number set off ten explosions in the Martinsburg State bank. The pistol duel between citizens and the bandits' outpost lasted from 2 to 4 a. m. Bullet holes show through nearly every building in the vicinity of the bank and the bank front is rid dled. Miraculously no person was hit. Whether the robbers were wounded is not known. More than 200 shots were exchanged. Failing to reach the inner compart ment of the safe, which held $1,800, the robbers finally took $70 worth of postage stamps from the postofflce, which is in the bank building, and re treated while still firing to the barn of Jacob Bumbard. three blocks away. Here they stole a team and buggy and drove off. FIGHT WITH BANDITS. Chief of Police Prevents Robbery of Pennsylvania Bank. Weatherly, Pa., Feb. 15.In a battle Jnth two men who were trying to break into the Weatherly bank Chief of Police McLean has been seriously wounded. McLean attacked the robbers single handed.

Then they got away in the darkness without effecting an en trant to the bank. Perish in Cold and Storm. Cannonball, N.
