A JPfOiiiiiieiit Ftittittttre fcealei' Ends His Life Because of Troubles Money Mattel's. A Wagon Ride from Colorado to Kossuth County—High Priced Cattle at Lu* Vetne—Koi-tfawest News. Livertnore is excited over the suicide of J. Lane, a prominent furniture dealer. He went to his old home at Independence last week^ and Thursday, while there, went out and hung himself. He was under forty years of age, was highly esteemed at Livet'more, and was well-to-do. Despondency over some business matter connected with his family at Independence is thought to have been the cause. The rumor Is that at one time he gave notes for $0,000 to his father, that he afterwards paid them off, but his father forgot to tear them up, that after his father's death they were found among 1 his papers and that his brothers have insisted upon his making them good. In any event some financial trouble preyed upon his mind and drove him to the rash act. He leaves his wife and children some $12,000. A Long Wagon Ride. A week ago Saturday afternoon P. H. Averill and wife and four of his children arrived in Ledyard from Greeley, Colorado. They started from Colorado with two teams, June 18, making them two months and eleven days on the road, stopping at two different points on the way to visit married daughters. They crossed the desert, a distance of 100 miles, but were prepared for the trip, thus avoiding the fate which has befallen many who have attempted to cross it. They came across on what is called the "gun barrel road," surveyed and laid out by the government, and derives its name on account of its being so perfectly straight for a good many miles. Vegetation is unknown and not a drop of water the entire distance, and all along were carcasses of horses that had undoubtedly perished on account of the extreme heat and want .of water. The Leader says they arrived in Ledyard well, without having any sickness on their trip, and the horses were in good condition. They are at present the guests of their daughter, Mrs. Hattie Walker, whom they had not seen for about seven years. Cattle Bring High Prices. Geo. W. Hanna of LuVerne paid $22.50 each for grass yearling cattle last week. He tells the Review that he has handled cattle almost continuously since 1864 and he says that he never paid higher prices for grass yearlings than he did for those. He says that his father and un'cle bought 1.00 head of grass three-year-old steers of Barney Devine to be weighed at Webster City, Sept. 15, 1864, for $3 per cwt. and they were paid for in depreciated greenbacks.
