Complying with the orders of County Attorney Frank A. Dutton, the portions of the body found in Hackberry lake recently and supposed to be that of William O’Daniels was submitted to a thorough examination Monday. Drs. George E. and G. H. Morris had charge of the inspection which was made in the presence of a number of selected witnesses. The remains were then sealed in a metallic casket containing a plate glass cover which will permit inspection when required. This work was handled by the Home Undertaking parlors and after being properly sealed the body was placed in a vault until required, if it wanted, during the trial of Walter L. Harris which will take place at the next term of the district court.

No further developments have been made and no more information has been given out by the county officers regarding the situation. While no other portions of the body have been found it is not our understanding the hope has been abandoned of ultimately recovering these parts. If they are in the lake as stated by Harris they will surely be located in time.

The 2-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Milton Morrison died very suddenly last week. Mr. and Mrs. Morrison and two small children had just returned to Wheatland from LaGrange, Wyo., when both children became violently ill. The older one is still in a very critical condition. The exact cause of the illness has not been decided, but it is thought that the children ate something that poisoned them. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at the Congregational church, conducted by Rev. Mr. Paxton. Internment was in the Wheatland cemetery.

The Chadron Democrat says last Thursday’s lightning played havoc among the teacher and scholars at the Union Valley school house. The teacher, Miss Pearl Holty, and six of the scholars were severely blistered and stunned from the effects of the bolt. A gentleman who was driving in the vicinity of the school house at the same time was thrown from his wagon and remained insensible for about ten minutes. It was raining very hard, yet the prairie grass caught fire and burned over considerable space before it was extinguished. On the same day and about the same hour George L. Fernald, a young farmer residing about seven miles northwest of Chadron, on Dry Creek, was struck by lightning and instantly killed while driving along the highway.
