LINCOLN, Neb., June 14 (Special.)
Pennis H. Cronin, editor of the O'Neill
Frontier, has appealed from the decision
of the district court of Holt county in a
case where he sued the county treasurer
and his bondsmen for $4,020 due, as he al

the treasurer to have printed in the
Frontier the scavenger tax list, but in
stead gave the job to another paper.

Fruit Prospects Good.
Secretary Marshall of the horticultural

fruit prospects In Nebraska are good.
eH says that In southeastern Nebraska,
' which is the great apple district, there
wHl be an immense crop of apples. In
the North Platte country the apple crop
will not be so large. This is due mostly
to the fact that that section had a big
crop last year and that two large crops
seldom follow. The cherry and plum
crop will be very good and the straw
berry crop fairly good. The dry weather
of a couple of weeks ago has affected
the strawberries more than any other

Suits representing the cream of the unsold portions of our stock. In some of
these lines a few sizes are missing. Each garment has bvn selling in this

very special prices are the result of a threefold purpose. First to keep
the stock as free from broken lots as possible. Second to give our patrons
the benefit of price reductions now, rather than later on. Third to demon
strate that when it comes to "values"' this store is "it" both in regular sea
son and on Special occasions.

undisturbed on the original ticket in the coat and the special price is marked on a string
ticket attached to a button. We invite any friend you may have, who may have bought
one of our quality suits this Spring to accompany you in order to verify our claims of

tt.lt Lake City. H. E. Fredrickson, who
will be captain of the ship, together with
Mayor Dahlman, are hearing from those
who want to go. There are few, how
ever, who are certain they can take the
trip. Fredrickson is anxious to get word
from everyone who can go all or even
part of the way.
The boosters will leave Omaha Monday
morning at 7:15 o'clock. The first stop
will be made at Fremont, where a big
reception has been planned. Letters of
welcome from towns along the route are
now being received by the Omahans.
Nearly every town will have out a band
of greeters to meet the good roads en

in Central City. From there the band
will go to Kearney, where they will take
luncheon Tuesday. Tuesday night they
will arrive in Gothenburg, and the next

Intimate friends in this country of Wil

story which he himself wrote In the

Reviews, London, published in December,
1S92, entitled. "From the Old World to the

Mr. Stead In this chapter, which is
called "Coincident and Clalrvoyage," de
scribes an encounter with Icebergs at sea.
His characters are a group of English
tourists on their way to the Chicago
World s fair. They are crossing the At
lantic on board the Majestic, of the White
Star line. The steamship suddenly comes
upon a great Iceberg.
The great English writer, long known
for his ideas on spirluallsm. clairvoyance
and mental telepathy, brings all Into play
In his thrilling story of the high sea, but
when he describes the icebergs, fog and
conditions of sky and sea on board the
Majestic it would seem that he had been
able to send an account of what took
place that tragic Sunday evening it
could not have been more identical.

Thomas, finding him almost dead. They
bring him safely to the Majestic Just as it
seemed that the steamship would go un

scription of the icebergs and the wreck
tally with the tragedy of Sunday night.
The time and place also agree with those
of Sunday's catastrophe. It also was on
a vessel of the White Star line, and the
captain had under his care just 2.000 souls
snd a cargo worth at least $2,000,000. Per
