Waylaid and shot and his head mangled with a hatchet or Hum, other sharp instrument w;n fute of J. J. Davis, an oldtlme resident of Ainsworth, when on his way home last night, between 11 and 12 o'clock. The body was then dragged from the alley to Davis' barn, a distance of twenty feet and left in the granery. Davis was found by. his wife, who became nervous when he did not reach home. lie lived two hours after being found, but did nut regain consciousness. Davis was supposed to have i.;00 on his person, but all that was gone when he was found. His watch was not molested. The shot entercid Just, above the right ear, so close that his hair was singed. Three bad gashes, each of which fractured his skull, were inflicted op the head above the left eye, Oeorge Wilson, who arrived here from Billings, Mont., Dcmmber 12, and posed as a detective, was arrested on suspicion, and, when searched, In bills was found in his stocking. A tramp was also ar rested on suspicion, but was turned louse egaln. Davis was 40 years old, a resident of Brown county eighteen years, and con ducted a pool hall at the time of his death. Money Covered with Blood. developed that the clothing worn by Joorge Wilson contained many spots of blood. The money which v as found in Wilson's socks, In th sum of .'20, the larger amount In currency, also contained many spots of blood. When arrested Wll on denied having any money on his parson, but after the money wis found declared thnt he had been paid the amount found in Sturgls, 8. D.

At tjie coroner's Inquest this afternoon the Jury, after listening to the evidence, brought In a verdict that J. J.

The action of the late democratic legislature In taking from the, control of the State Board of Public Lands and Buildings the Home for the Friendless and placing it under the control of a governor appointed board, and at the same time changing its name to the State Public school, has so far proven a vi ry costly piece of legislation. The report of the finances of the Institution for., the six months from June 1 to November 30 of this year, which was made public today In the governor's office, shows that It has cost the state for its maintenance JK1.20 per capita. For the same period last year the per capita cost was $94.52. It is claimed. however, that this per capita will be re duced when credit Is given lor meals fur nished the Orthopedip hospital. ino ooiuiera nome ai urana island, ac cording to a comparison of the reports for the two periods appears to be . up against a good sized deficit. The per capita cost of Its maintenance for the six months Just ended was J113.64 against $103.71. During the six months this Institution has spent for maintenance, employes' wages and of ficers' salaries a total of $37,500. The bal ance of the appropriation for this purpose ror tne twenty-two months Is $120,242, allow ing the expenditure of $6,4fi6 monthly. The Institution has Spent $6,250 a month during the last six months. The per capita cost of the maintenance of the Lincoln insane asylum for the last six months, was $1)2.30 against a per capita cost for the same period in 1908 of $86.30. The report filed shows that thirty-five escaped during the six months. The report of the soldiers' home at Mll ford had to bo returned for corrections, while the boys' Industrial school at Kear ney has as yet made no report. The per cent of the maintenance fund on hand In each Institution Is as follows: Hastings asylum, 70H; Lincoln asylum, 66; Norfolk asylum, 74'4, soldiers' home at Grand Island, 634; Institute for the deaf, 72V; institute for the feeble minded, industrial home at Milford, 76; Industrial school at Geneva, 68; state school, 61; penitentiary, 62 per cent. One third of the blennlum has passed and to come out with the appropriation the Institutions should have on hand ' two thirds of the aproprlations, but Inasmuch as the expenditures have been for the sum mer months there should, in the opinion of the board, be more than two-thirds of the appropriations on hand at this time.
