H All loyal and sympathetic hearU
H go oat to Senator Thurston in tbc
H -sad and pathetic death of his noble
H and brilliant wife , this week , while
H J on a visit to Cuba. The unspeak-
H able scenes of that desolate and
H scourged island were too much foi
H the tender and loving heart of thai
H grand American mother , who was
H stricken to her death by an attach
H of heart disease. The remains were
H brought to Omaha for interment.
H The Papillion Times has just is-
H sued a very handsome and com-
H edi-
prehensive Trans-Mississippi -
H tion of that paper. Elegant half
H tones have been used in rich pro-
H fusion and the letter press is fortH -
H unately devoid of anything exces-
B sive in the way of advertising.
H The whole is beautifully printed
H on super-calendered paper of a
H mellow tint and is withal a highly
H creditable advertising medium.
H The Tribune has no part or par-
H eel in this unseemly discussion
H about the Lorenz murder trial. It
H deplores what has been said by
H the other papers of the county. It
H were better all of it had never
H been written. It is sufficient that
H Edward Lorenz did not have a
H proper or adequate defense , and
H that he will be given in his second
H trial what he did not have in his
H first one. He is entitled to it and
H all unbiased citizens will be satis-
H fled with the result of the coming
H trial There is only one other re-
H gret and that is that he waB not
H adequately defended at the first
j trial.
H Everybody is sowing wheat.
H , Mr. Culbertson has moved to
B Mrs. E. May Starbuck's place.
H , Fred Burton has moved back to
H' ' hiB homestead in Hitchcock county.
H { Lee Williams and brother are
H sowing 200 acres of wheat on the
H Ritchie place.
H Grandma Simpson , mother of
H P. M. Simpson of Vailton .died
H on Saturday and was buried in
H Longview cemetery , Monday after-1
H noon. The family has the heartH -
H felt sympathy of all their neigh-
H bois in their sad bereavement.
H O. E. and O. L. Boone and A. D.
H Lord and families started last MenU -
U day to their new home in Colorado.
| H They were all pleasant neighbors
H and the community has sustained
H a loss by their removal. We wish
H them success in their new homes.
H i Somebodv from McCook was

H | country , last week , and found a

H fashionable in the country to dress
H as you can and not as you please.
B The good ship Maine at anchor
B lay , In the harbor of Havana bay.
B It was night and the sailors went
Hj to sleep , Without any fear of the
B treacherous deep , And no thoughts
H of a cruel , revengeful foe That
Bj • was planning then to strike the
Bj blow Which would take the lives
Bl of the sailors brave , And sink them
Bj low in a watery grave. The cap-
B n SH iQ his cabin alone , Writing
Bj letters to friends at home. He was
Bj telling his wife of this foreign port ,
B Where he truly hoped his stay
B would be short. The watch was
B pacing the deck , so they tell , And
B had just called out , "All is well , "
B When suddenly there came an
B awful boom , Which sent the ship
B to its eternal doom. Bill Anthony
B to the captain groped his way , Sa-
B luted and said , "Excuse me , sir ,
B but I have to say , The ship's blown
m up and is sinking in Havana bay. "
B No time for the sailors to shed a
B tear , To think of home or offer a
m prayer ; But the noble crew had
B gone to sleep In the inky waters of
B the treacherous deep. Some lie
B beneath the rolling waves , While
B others sleep in foreign graves.
H But few were left of that gallant
B band , To return to home and native
Hj land. A nation mourns for brave
B men gone , There's a vacant chair
Hj in many a home ; A mother weeps
H for her darling boy , And a father's
H heart is dead to joy. And the
H meanest thing done by cruel Spain ,
H Was the wrecking of- the battle-
H ship Maine.
