shipments from Columbus. A few years
ago they thought their business hsd
practically reached the limit, but they
did not count on the popularity of their
product, both at home and in nearby,
towns. Since he started in Columbus

sending out notices to the various school
bosrds of the county regsrding a recent
order issued by the state superintendent.
The lsw provides that school boards
shall levy a ten cent per capita tax for
every child of school age in their dis
tricts, to be used for a library fund. In
some portions of the state this provision
has been ignored, and in order to enforce
the law the state superintendent has is
sued a circular to all county superintend
ents requiring them to withhold the
state apportionment from all districts
who fsil to comply with the library law.
Superintendent Lecron saya that so far
ss Platte county is concerned, the order
ia unnecessary, but he is sending out
tbenotioes to comply with the circular
from the state superintendent.

The jury returned the verdict as fol
lows: "The jury finds that William J. Erder
came to hto death on July 10 by arsenie
poisoning, administered by his wife,
DoraE. Erder, alias Dora E. Doxey,
alias Dora E. Fuller, and that Loren B.
Doxey had guilty knowlegdeof the fact.
Doxey did not attend the inquest
but the witnesses were taken to the jail.
Her sole reply to her indentification
Dr. Doxey did not testify. Theooc-
oner asked him two questions, to whioh
he ref ussd to reply. He was not sworn
i a witness. Mrs. Kstherine Erder,
mother of the msn Mrs. Doxsy to ac
cused of killing, testified her son became
ill after eating ' a blackberry pie which
his wife had made.
All witnesses before the coroner's jury
were subpoenaed to appear, before the

Mrs. L. E. Doxey of Columbus, Neb..
who is sccused of causing Erder'e death
waa not present at the corner's proceed
ings. Dr. Watson, the jsil physicisn,
decided that because of theoold weather
and her weakened condition it would be
unsafe to take her to the coroner's office.
Because of, Mrs.1 Doiey's absence the
witnesses who were depended on to iden
tify her ss Mn. Erder wss taken to the
women'e quarters in the city jsil. There
four other women were plsced on cots
like that occupied by Mrs. Doxsy.
With one exception all the witnesses
idedtified Mrs. Doxey ss having been
known to them as Mm. W. J. Erder.
The identification were made by nine
men and five women. Among the latter
was Mtos Kate Erder. stoterofthe dsad
man, but Mm. Doxsy gave no-sign that
ehe recognised the woman whose efforts
to clear up Erder'a death resulted ia her
After five of the witnesses had pro
nounced her to be the Mrs. Erder, Mrs.
Doxey was asked:
, "Are these witnesses mistaken aa to
your identity?" .
"They most emphatically are." waa
the reply with considerable vigor. Then
as another witness was ssoortsd into the
