Omaha Neb., August, 14. A
special from sterling, Neb., says that,
Saturday night, Lettie Walker, the 7-
year old daughter of H. N. Walker,
residing just outside the city limits,
was shot by the father, who mistook
her for a burglar. The little girl had
gone out of the house while her par
ents were asleep, and upon returning
the noise of the door, which was swol
len by the rain, awoke her father, who
had recently been bothered by tramps.
Seeing a figure in the darkness, he
asked who was there, and receiving
no reply, fired, the ball striking the
girl in the left breast and lodging
under the shoulder blade. Recogni
zing the voice of his daughter by her
screams, the horrified father gathered
her in his arms and laid her on the
bed. Her condition is very critical,
but the doctors think she may recover.

entirely dry was seven years ago when
the influx of Amer cans first com

had to dig wells in that year in the bed
of the river, where a good under cur
rent was found, although the surface
was entire dry.

ot the building and fell about to feet,
when his heel caught in the railing of
a porch, when he was discovered this
morning hanging head downwards a
short distance from the ground.
