Sunday morning a telegram from Orchard, Nebraska, brought the sad news of the death of Dwight L.Newton at that place, by his own hand. Farther than that he had shot himself and that he was already dead the telegram did not say, and no further word has been received by the friends here in regard to the tragic affair. On Monday noon Mrs. E. N. Weaver, the mother of the stricken wife, departed for the scene of the tragedy. Mr. New- Ion was,up to last fall, the agent of the C. M. & St. P. Ry. Co., at Whittemore in this county. While there he became acquainted with and married Miss May Weaver, of this place. They had several children, the youngest a babe of • but a few weeks. The widow will have the sympathy of a large circle of friends. Public School Report.

If sickness were the only thing that kept pupils from school, our per cent, of attendance would be 97 or 98 instead of 94.
