August Bartolls , u highly respected German farmer who lived about uiuo miles northwest of Newman Qrovo , met with an accident last Friday morn ing that resulted in hla death. Mr. Bartolls was helping his neigh bor , Martin Paulson with his thrashing , as is the custom In this community. Ho was pitching bundles into the self- feeder , when his fork-handle was violently thrust towards him , the end of the handle striking him in the pit of the stomach with such force that ho was thrown to the ground. The tines of the fork had nccldentlyjtouohed the driving bolt and was caught by it and hurled through the air , after inflicting the fatal wound , flying above the separator arator and beyond the straw stack. The injured man was quickly removed to .tho house and Dr. Friuk was summoned. An examination waa made and the man was found bleeding to death internally nud there was no hope of saving his life. A post Jmortein examination revealed the fact that the bowel had boon torn from the stomach , leaving an oriflco large enough to admit the hand easily. The accident occurred about 10:110 o'clock and the man , fully conscious , lingered until about 7 o'clock that even ing. ing.Ho Ho was a kind neighbor , a devoted husband and an indulgent father auc the whole community unites with the sorrowing widow and bereaved sons in the loss of their best of friends. A widow and four sous , the oldoa about 11 years of ago and the yonuges tnbout 4 , are the survivors. The funeral was held Sunday after noon and interment made in the Qer man Lutheran burial grounds , seven miles north of Newman Grove. New man Grove Herald. HIGH SCHOOL NOTES.

Those who wont to Madison on the ccaslou of tlio recent football game nro f the opinion that the girls of the Mad- sou schools have n quality of "brass" ovornl grades more porfoot than that assessed by the girls of the Norfolk chools.

Baird's Worst Fault Was That Ho Got Into Bad Company Entered His Pica Yesterday Afternoon. 1'rom Wednesday's Dnlly That Max Spnlir , who pleaded guilty to cutting the throat of George Hodges n the night of October K ! is n dosper- to man and has the inclination to bo- omo n criminal of a pronounced typo vas evidenced by n plan ho hnd made f escaping from Sheriff Clements and 10 county jail nt Madison last night , lo told Bnird of his scheme and Baird s credited witli exposing it to the sheriff > oforo it could bo put in execution , pnhr wns awaiting the coming of the horiff to look him in his cell when 10 proposed to overpower him nnd ock the oillcor in the cell instead , vhilo the prisouors made good their sonpo. The plnn might have boon uccossful if all had agreed , but Baird , or ono , objootod to the scheme nud vhou ho had the chance exposed it ; to ho sheriff with tlio result that the plan was frustrated and Spahr has a very good prospect of spending a torrn of xbout two years and a half behind the mrs of the state penitentiary nt Lincoln. The father of J. A. Bnird wns in the ity today from Hastngs nud proposes to settle with the courts and take the young man home with him. The pre vailing iuiprossou here is that Baird's ? roat misfortune in connection with the lodges throat cutting scrape , was that 10 fell in with bad company nnd that 10 is not bad nt hoart. Those who have 'allowed ' the case will readily concede .hat . Spahr was the directing hand and the villain. Baird's connection was merely passive and his great endeavor appears to have been to get away from companionship with Spahr , who would undoubtedly have treated Bnird in the same manner that ho did Hodges , had ihero been a motive nud an opportunity. Baird had nothing to do with the cntt- ng affray. Ho was connected by Hodge's story with the taking of the money but this was denied by Baird , nud it is believed that if the case hnd como to trial ho would have cleared lihuaelf of such accusation. As wns stated yesterday it is fortunate for both men that Hodges did not die as a result of his nssanlt. Hodges' testimony wont to clenr Baird of complicity in the criuio , while if he had not recovered Spahr's position would have boon ninch graver and Baird would not have had as good support for this story. Both Hodges Baird told stories that dovetailed very nicely and facts that wore obtainable went to prove that they were tolling the truth. It was the opinion of some that the story given yesterday connected Bnird with the case ns closely as Spahr. This was uot the Intention. The pleadings filed and the stories leading np to the trial all tended to make it nppear that Baird wns not a participant to the assault to the same extent that Spahr nor in any slight degree responsible for the throat cutting. The evidence is that Bnird left the scene of the crime ns soon ns it was soon by him that serious re sults were likely to follow. There was ono mlsstatoindut however. Bnird did not plead guilty to assault and battery at the sauio time Spahr entered his plea of gnilt to assault with intent to commit great bodily harm. Baird entered n reluctant plea to as sault and battery on the advice of his attorney when court sot yesterday nf tor- noon nud the judge assessed the fine of $00 against him nt onco. This was utter Spahr had received his seutouco. Baird believed that ho could bo cleared of oven an nttompt nt assault and bat tery as ho took no part in the affray when Spahr began to use violence and he wns not present nt the scene of the criuio when Hodges throat was out. He was told that the compnuy ho was in an entitled him to some sort of punishment nud ho appeared to be well pleased that ho had boon let off with a fine. Returned from Manila. Seth P. Mobloy , a well-known No- braskau for n number of years edi tor of n Grand Island daily , is in the state for the first time in three years , during which time ho has boon in the revenue service at Manila. Ho visited Fremont on his way to his oldjhomo in Grand Island and the Tribune gives the following nccount of his trip nud his ex perience in the Philippines : "In Aug ust he has grnuted n vacation , to como homo on a visit. Ho hns since then boon ninkiug the journey. Ho carne by way of the Suez canal and the cast , bo. ing on the ship seventy days to Boston. After visiting a week or two at ] Grand Island ho will resume his journey , reaching Manila again nbout Christmas. Mr. Mobloy is looking the picture of health. The climate there agrees with him perfectly , nnd with the members of his family. Ho is ohief of the con sular nnd statistical dopnrtmonfc of the P Wippinos customs service , having about twenty clerks under him. The revenues of the islands , ho says , are Bufliclent to meet the requirements for nil purposes except the mnluteiinnco of the army , they being about $4,000,000 a year. One who has been in the [ islands ho says , as long as I have , cnn actunlly see the stngos of progress as they como into being. I think it positively is a fact in the last twelve months there has boon more progress thnn in any twelve years in the previous history of the city of Manila and ndjncent terri tory. A vast amount of building is going - ing on ; American thrift nnd industry is projecting into all chnnnels. When wo went to the islnnds wo found them nsloop. The old unlives nnd Spaniards wore lost in n lethargic dream and cored little or nothing for coinmorcinl or in- dnstrinl ndvnnconiont. But those fol lows have boon awakened by American wnys and now they nro nssimlinting those modern customs with commend- nblo progress. The bettor clnss of the unlives have lennied thnt it is to their o\7ii advnntngo to become Americanized as rapidly as possible nnd these now show n romnrkable anxiety to ncquiro all the knowledge they can.

Ho will come high , but if you must have him ho is to bo had. Tlio dealers throughout the city hnvo completed their arrangements for the birds to supply tlio Thanksgiving trado. While it wns feared earlier in the sonson thnt there would not bo enough tnrks to moot the demand , the dealers an nounce they will bavo a sullloieut num ber by the last of next week to supply every family. It is estimated from past years , thnt between 7,000 nud 8,000 of the popular fowls will bo disposed of during Thanksgiving week. But they will bo high and the man who expects to carry n nice fnt gobbler homo to his wife nnd babes must expect to pay nil tlio wny from 75 cents to $2 for the privilogo. Live tnrks nro bring ing from 11 to 13 cents wholesale , and it is thought that during Thanksgiving week the price will bo from 1G to 18 cents , dressed. And the fowls are tlio finest quality. They are fnt and plump and the ( lesh is as tender as n maiden's hoart. South Dakota furnishes thorn referring to the turkeys although some of the dealers secure their Thanksgiving fowls from Minnosotn , near Pipestone. They nro not to bo found in Woodbury county in snflloiont numbers to amount to any thing. "We make no special efforts to get our hands on turkeys until the week before Thanksgiving , " said a leading poultry man this morning. "This time of the mouth , there is little or no do maud for thorn at all nud as a consequence quence there has been a noticeable shortage in the supplies that wo have had on hand. But wo shall hnvo no trouble in supplying the demand next week or rather the week following that. The commission houses have arranged for birds to meet the demand and Thnnksgiving can be celebrated in the good old way. " The ducks and geese are pleantiful this year although shoy are not in de mand until later in the year. The squawkers are especially numerous and they are selling cheap enough to bo within the reach of all. At wholesale live goose and ducks are soiling at 7 and 9 cents and dressed they retail at from 12 to 14 cents. They are in flue condi tion and are juicy and luscious. South Dakota nnd Nebraska are the store houses for these fowls. But the chickens are the Iowa stand- bys. The poultry raisers of the Hawkeye - eye state devote most of their time to the cultivation of chicks , at least in the northwest portions of the stnto. Chick ens are soiling at wholesale at 9 cents alive , while they are retailing , dressed , nt 12) < < cents. The bugs nud worms hnvejbeou plentiful nnd the domestic fowls have boon living on the fat of the laud so that they are also of an excel lent quality. Eggs are scarce and therefore high. No. 1 stock is sold at 20 cents per dozen and the other qualities are soiling at slightly less prices. Sioux City Tribune. THURSDAY TIDINGS. 0. S. Hnyos paid a business trip to Plainviow today. L. L.
