W Kv4 ftai- Money.
Tbe editor of the Ex raw wishes to
Impress the faot upon- the minds of
thtwe who are behind an subscription
and otherwise, that he needt every,
cent due him. We have borrowed
money from year to year In order to
continue our business, before we would
Insist upon It from those who owe us,
but pay day It now near at hand, and
we shall be compelled to either collect,
or sacrifice what we have worked for
these many years. Tbe amounts due
us are small, taking them severally,
and you would not miss the money,
but put these amount together, and
tbey make several thousand dot
lars. Will or will not our friends help
us out by paying up?

patched for a doctor aud soou Dr.
Loomis cume and applied the usual

cents on the dollar those who caused
this fearful shrinkage even though
nothing criminal was intended, can
not hope to escape public censure. Men
who trust to tbe credit of others and
lose money thereby are slow to hunt
up excuses as to the whys and where
foresin fact no explanation is or can
be iu order.

on the republican side. For Mayor the
names of Dr. J. L. Hill, Jason Wheel

a suitable republican candidate for

A startling Hensstloa,
BY K lX-DITECTIYB.
If there Is one thing that tbe Ameri- -can
people enjoy more thani another, it
I a story In real tlfe, of a sensational
nature. More especially i this the
case where the parties interested are
wait known. Tfiie rlchuess-of a sensation-attempered
inence of tbe parties connected there
with. We all Ilk romance too, but a
romance In real' - life which) occurs In
oud midst it noU'enjoyed ln common,
as-tlw heroes r heroine are like
prophets, without honor in their own
country; while an ocourrenee- of a sen
sntfcnal nature fat enjoyed la common.
Tbe story which I shall relate la a
long one, but a the parties' inh rested "
are very prominent and are right in
our midst and Uhsv closing chapters will
b rehearsed before your very eyes, it
needs a prelude-to enrich the sequel.
Fer obvious reasons I withhold all real
names, using fictitious names Instead,
laeed, it willlnever be necessary for
ine to give names of the parties inter
ested, as they will eventually be re- -vested
to yo as though, they were
painted in large fiery letters and -tacked
to the heavens above. It is also
necessary that I shield my own iden- -tlty.
I will state, however, that I am i
an ex-detectiMe, and It was while serv
ing in this eapaclty that I came In
possession ct the facts which I shall: '
Two of the principal actors In thla
drama (It may eud iu a' tragedy) are.
living in Oregon andtless than one
thousand miles from Lebanon. The
other two (there are four of them) are
on the Atlantic coast. While tbey are
separated by this vast scope of country
they are sure to come, together, a in
all cases where natural laws have been
violated reaction wiil sooner or later
set in. ,
It wa-iiu tbe year 1884 that an old
gentleman of 65, perhaps, who I
will call Mr. Lund, entered! the
office of my superior and very calmly
stated that he wlslied the services of a
detective. After he had explained bis
troubles, my superior deeming the ser
vices Jif an expeibnot necessary, I was
detailed to work the ease up, but had
he known of the-complications which ,
would be developed, some one of our
fore with broader experience would
have been detailed instead oi myself,
I considered myself fortunate in get
ting this case, as my work lay on that
part of the Missouri river tbat I had.
never visited, and wished to do so as I
wanted to solve a mysteryK which ter
minated in that locality, merely to.
satisfy my awn curiosity. In due time,
! clothed as a laborer, I entered the em
ploy of Mi. Lund as a man of all work.
My duties were various, and I was
often thrown In the company of the
few relatives of Mr. Lund from whom,
1 expected to get the first thread of In
formation which would help me to
unravel the seemingly unimportant,
yet which proved to.be a very compli.
cated mystery, iu which Mr. Lund
would want to sorely trouble himself.
In the year 1866. there settled lu the
eastern bonier of Nebraska, four fam
ilies, consisting of Mr. Lund, his wife
and baby girl, Emma; Mr. Latimer,
his wife and a baby girl, Edna; Mr.
Willis, his wife and boo, James; Mr.
Mills, his wile and son, Burt. These
parties all being pretty well-to-do
entered directly into funning and
stock raising on an extensive scale.
While there were other settlers in that
locality these four families seemed to
live apart from all others. Mr. Mills
eventually tired of farming, sold out
everything, bought a small tmot of
land from Mr. Willie and erected ft
large store building and residence
thereon, and near the residence nf Mr,
Willis. Here he opened up a store of
general merchandise. This proved to
lie the nucleus of a considerable village
and Is now a smuli city, As the vil
lage grew, churches and schools were
In 1873, just seven years after this
little colony settled in this locality,
Mrs. Lund and Mrs. Latimer died
within one day of each other, and they
were the first to mark tbe newly laid
out cemetery. After their death Mr.
Lund and Mr. Latimer, having no one
to keep bouse for them except Emma
and Edna, who were then eight and
nine respectively, broke up and took
up their abode with Mr. Willis and
Mr. Mills-Mr. Lund with Mr. Wlllia
and Mr. Latimer with Mr. Mills. ,
