It is seldom that the Herald is called
upon to chronicle an event which it re
grets more the necessity for doing than the
death of Frank Martin which occurred
about 4 o'clock Wednesday morning, Au
gust 27. 1902, after an illness dating back
to about the middle of last July. He suf
fered from a form of kidney trouble and
about a month ago was taken to a sanitari
um at Lincoln, whence, after two weeks'
treatment by which he was not benefited,
he was brought home and his death had
since been expected at any time,
Mr, Martin came to Box Butte county
about sixteen years ago, settling on a
homestead near Bcrca. Later he moved
to Hemingford and about eight years ago
came to this city where he has since re
sided. He has figured prominently in
the politics and public affairs of this sec
tion and enjoyed the esteem and confidence
of all his wide circle of friends and the
warmest friendship of those who knew
him intimately. He was a member of the
local post of the G. A. R. had served
through the civil war with Company F.
Seventy-sixth Illinois Volunteers. During
the terms of Sheriffs Sweeney and Reed
he had served ably as deputy. He was
fifty-nine years, ten months and twenty
seven days old.
The funeral services were held at 230
o'clock from the Baptist church, conducted
by Rev. Dr. Bogue, pastor of the Presby
terian church, of which Mr. Martin was n
member. The house was crowded with
the largo number of friends who came to
pay a last tribute of respect to the de
parted. The pall bearers were all old
soldiers W. R. Akers, A. M. Miller, Al
Wiker, S. P. Tuttle, W. H. Corbin and
J. G. Ragan. The floral tributes wero
many and beautiful.
Mr. Martin leaves a wife and one
daughter, Mrs, W C. Mounts, to mourn
his death. The Herald joins their host
of sympathizing friends in sorrow for
their grief and loss.
C. J. McPherson, an employe on Ro
sclle Fenner's ranch about fifteen miles
northeast of here, came Very near losing
his life Wednesday afternoon when Mr,
Fenner's partially demented son Ed took
half a dozen shots at him with a 44-callbre
revolver. Young Fenner received an in
jury a few years ago and though he took
treatment at a hospital for the insane he
never fully recovered. He 'and McPher
son were making hay and the latter com
plained of fatigue upon which his compan
ion suggested that they go to the honse.
Arrived there, Fenner got his pistol
and McPherson, divining his intention,
started to run. Fenner fired three wild
shots but the fourth ond struck McPherson
on a rib and glanced off, the fifth went
through his left hand and the sixth took off
his left thumb. About two miles from
the ranch he met the elder Fenner who
took him to a neighbor's and went home.
Finding things all right there he returned
for McPherson and brougot him ,t Alli
ance to have his wounds dressed.
Rev. and Mrs. G. C. Jeffers returned
Thursday morning from their outing at
Hot Springs. Both are looking and pro
fessing to feel well and say they' enjoyed
the rest and recreation very much in
deed. And now that Mr. Jeffers is home,
he learns that, far from losing his occupa
tion in his absence, he not only yet holds
it but has gained another, also that his
congregation, thinking that his ministerial
and editorial duties do not afford a suffi
ciently wide scope for his varied talents,
nor fill his time, perhaps decided that he
should become a poultry man. Therefore,
they erected a building, fenced in a park
and stocked it with chickens old ones and
fryers and now the good pastor has what
some of his members once heard him ex
press a wish for, which gave them the
idea of making the gift.

It was In a Prominent Place and Sorocono
Wan Looking But Ho Did It,
Give a man plenty of gall, a good suit of
clothes and a couple of silver dollars to
jingle and nine times out of ten ho'll get
through the world lots easier than his
modest, unassuming and more worthy
brother. It's so in love affairs as well as
everything else. As an illustration of the
truth of this let us narrate an incident that
occurred directly across the street from
the Herald office, Wednesday afternoon
of this week. Time 4 o'clock. Parties
to the affair a couplo of young bloods and
an unusually pretty young lady, They
were in the act of bidding each other good
bye. The young lady extended her hand
to the handsomer of the two bloods, who
grasped it and assayed to plant a kiss upon
her ruby lips. Gracefully she avoided the
catastrophe, with a merry laugh, and turned
to go her way. But at this juncture
young man No. 2 threw open tho screen
door leading up-stairs over Newberry's
and gently shoved No. 1 nnd the fair young
woman into the hall. It required but little
effort. Both were willing. And once in
side, a pair of masculine arms were thrown
around a slender, dainty feminine waist,
with a result that a sound like unto the
crushing of a torpedo upon a railroad track
cminatcd from that hall. He kissed her,
that was all. But that was enough, con
sidering tho time nnd the place.
That Kansas woman who has been
widely advertised as the youngest grand
mother will have to take a back seat.
Missouri contains a grandmother who is
four years her junion, Tho Kansas grand
mother is 33 years old Mrs. James Wil
kcrson, pi Boonslick township, Howard
county, this state, is a grandmother at 29
years old, and her mother, Mrs. L. H.
Kivett, was n grandmother before she was
33. As the Howard County Advertiser
triumphantly exclaims "Come again,
Kansas; you are easy to beat. Missouri,
Howard county and Boonslick township,
can beat Kansas on nlmost any proposition,
except jack rabbits and sand." It seems
highly probably that Mrs. VVilkersonis the
youngest grandmother in the United States.
