going to the place with him, that he
had shot a dummy which some of the

LEAVES FOR FAIR
W. D. Hogan, who has had charge
of the gathering and arranging of the
Brown county exhibit at the state
fair, announces that the exhibit has
just been sent to Huron, where It is
being placed in position among the
other competing counties. The Brown
county exhibit is a surprise to the
committee in charge of it, not so
much by the excellence of the contri
butions as by their number.
The exhibit filled a full sized box
car. Grains of all kinds, both small
and large, grasses, vegetables and
fruits figure prominently. Brown
county visitors at the fair will have
no reason to be ashamed of their
county's showing. Whether the ex
hibit wins the prize or not, it will
undoubtedly be well received.
MAN MAKES BRUTAL
ATTACK ON WIFE
Capt. Jacobs, a well known farmer
living near Columbia, was arrested
yesterday charged with assault with
intent to kill, the complainant being
his wife. She alleges Jacobs came
home intoxicated, and, being in a
bad humor, gave the woman a severe
beating. Mrs. Jacobs escaped and
took refuge with a neighbor, coming
to this city yesterday and getting a
warrant for his arrest. Jacobs has
been in the habit of beaming his
wife, but he never went quite so far
as he did this time, and it is likely
he will never get another chance, for
Mrs. Jacobs, through her attorney,
George H. Williamson, intends to en

be arraigned today on the charge of
assault with intent to kill.

Well Pleased With the City.
A party of men from Fredericks
burg, Iowa, were in town yesterday
seeking a location for a coffin and
casket factory. The opening up of
the country west of the river affords
a better opening here, and the party
is anxious to locate in Aberdeen, as
the location and the facilities are
better. While in the city the men
looked at several pieces of property
which impressed them favorably, and
last night they left for home to re
port the situation. They did not care
to mention their names, but they
will return in a few days to decide
upon the location. The men were
much pleased with the, city,, and it is
hoped Aberdeen will be able to secure
this new industry, as it will mean
work for a large number of people.
