He has iust bought a full blook Clydesdale stallion of Sifcginaster, of iCeota, la. He is three years old, weighs 1,060 pounds, and goes as " Keota Cham* plon." He is a splendid horse and a valuable addition to the live stock of the county. Wo regret to call attention to it, but the figures show that the lady teachers of the county are older on an average than the men. And then, too, they show that more men got hlffh grade certificates In proportion to tho num* ber of applicants.

Ollivor of Siou* City atill lies between life and death, with very little chance of recovery. The particulars of his rash act are about as tollows: He came here Nov. 6 and took rooms at the Summit house. He seemed to have plenty of money and no pressing business. He made claim to being a phrenologist and a lecturer on that branch of science and perfected arrangements to deliver a course of lectures at Pratt *s opera house, commencing last evening and lasting three nights. From November 6 until about last Monday he sat about the office and also visited at frequent intervals the saloon below, and, in fact, became intoxicated and remained so for a period of three or four days. But since last GREAT' SLAUGHTER -O3? 1 o Our Lu Verne correspondent notes Dr. Lacy's success in his suit against the Northwestern.

On tho 10th inst. Mr. Elmer E. Wilbur and Miss Nora B. Robison were united in marriage by the Baptist pastor of this city, at the residence of the bride's parents. The groom is the son of I. N. Wilbur, and an esteemed resident of Union township, and the bride the daughter of Wesley Robison, well known as a worthy neighbor and citizen of tho city. Tho newly married couple will occupy tho house of John Heckart next to tho Grange hall. What is the county going to do for a sheriff? Wo tried Jack Pinkerton, but the postmaster decided that he was n bad man. Then D. A. Haggard came in with Bro. Starr's heartiest approval. But before he went out the postmaster decided that he was a very bad man. Thon Marsh Stephens came in with the loudest blast of trumpets the Republican could blow. And now the postmaster has decided that Marsh is tho very worst pill in tho box. This is a horrible situation with nothing in prospect. Until tho postmaster speaks the word, wo presume all we can do is to await future developments, and in tho meanwhile get our usual good service in tho sheriff's office, while our mail is distributed so that the inventor of tho 15 puzzle couldn't tell whoso letters ho is reading.

A now addition to our people ia Mi- Dowse, a brother-in-law of T. H. Wadsworth. He will go into tho horse business, and possibly do something at his trade, being a master brick mason — - --- - — ••• u » ..UM*. Mi W| y tj t JJIAU OAHl^U IclOU Monday he has been strictly sober, and has been completing arrangements for his course of lectures. Instructions bad been given to the help at the hotel not to secure tiny more liquor for him. and everything seemed to bo all straight. Friday evening he was seen at about o'clock, and to those with whom he conversed he seemed to be in good spirits and full of hope for the financial success of his coming lectures. About 8:80 o'clock Saturday morning tho boll boy nipped on the door of his room and made the announcement of breakfast. No response was received. At 8:45 he was sent up again with a similar result. Becoming alarmed, the day clerk went up stairs, and gazing over tho transom, discovered Dr. Olliver lying in a state of what appeared to be unconsciousness. An entrance was effected by moans of the Hvindow, and messengers dispatched for physicians. The body was still warm and some life remained, and every means was resorted to to restore animation. The room was in a condition of chaos. The doctor's medicine case lay open on the floor and numerous bottles of poisonous compounds were strewn about on the stand, bureau and floor. A bottle of belladona, partly used and open, was on the bureau, also a bottle containing nitrate of omyle. On a stand was a bottle which had contained chloform and a bottle of morphine lay under the bed. The cork had been removed and replaced, and showed recent usage. The bureau contained a bottle of Dover's powders, which was partly empty. The patient was in a cornotose condition and from the symptoms it was impossible to decide just what and how much poison he had taken, as the effects of several poisons were visible. The cause of Dr.. Olliver taking poison is in doubt. Theories are numerous, but actual facts are scarce. Sometime Friday he had indicted a letter to his wife and the same was found outside or the door, as if thrown through the transom or pushed under the door. This would seem as if he had contemplated some rash step, but an examination of the contents disclosed no reference to the act. One theory is as follows: Dr. Olliver had been nervous and irritable and during the night went to his medicine case and prepared himself a quieting potion. Not finding relief he tried another dose, which in his weak condition was too much for his system. Unless he revives and is able to make a statement, it will probably never be known whether it was an intentional suicide or an accidental death. Latest: Dr. Olliver died Sunday morning at 8:30 o'clock. A friend who was with him claims that apoplexy was the cause, and that there was no evidence that he had taken morphine or any of his drugs.
