A reunion of the descendants of
Joshua and Fanny Wilson, whose homo
was at Belinda, la., and where most
of the children grew to manhood and
womanhood, occurred at Broken Bow1,
Nebr., and near Merna, Nebr., holiday
It commenced Monday i Dec. 27th,
when most of them arrived, and lasted
four days. The first two days were
spent at Broken Bow at the fine new
home of Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Olmsted,
she being the oldest of the family. The
last two days were spe,nt at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. J. O, Wilson, ten
miles west of Merna.
In tho last few years they have all
scattered, some living in California,
Wyoming, Iowa and tho greater part
in Nebraska. V, F Wilson came
front San Jose, Calif., and H. H. Wil
son from Therniopoli8, Wyo. Their
wives were not able to accompany
them, they being the only sister-in-laws
not present. The following were
the others present: Mr. and Mrs. W.
H. Putcamp and daughter of Omaha,
Nebr.; Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Wilson
and sons of Dalton, la.; Mr. and Mrs.
W. G. Wilson, daughter and niece,
Mr. and Mrs. J. C Berry and daugh
ter and Mrs. G. E. Rooker of Antioch,
Nebr; Mr. and Mrs. J. E, Wilson and
daughter of Alliance, Nebr.; Mr. and
Mrs. J. O. Wilson, Mr. and Mrs. M.
G. Smith, and F. M. Smith and fami
lies of Merna, Nebr.; Mr. and Mrs. F.
M. Olmsted and family of Broken Bow,
There are 12 children and all are
living, G girls and 6 boys. Two of the
boys are twins E. W. and J. E. The
oldest of the family is 60 years of age
and the youngest is 38 It has been
35 years since they have all met to
gether, and the meeting was a very
happy and joyous affair. All were,
great merrymakers, old-time songs,
recitations and piano solos being ren
dered by each in their turn. Stilt they
did not forget the more serious part,
as all were raised Christians and none
of them have forgotten their father's
and mother's teaching, they having
passed on before. Most of the child
ren are active workers in the church.
During the meeting at Broken Bow
they all went to the photographer's and
had a picture of the 12 taken, and as
they marched home they had the 12
weighed, which was 2, 1C0 pounds.
When they returned they found tho
table spread for 12 and a bounteous
dinner of roast turkey, chicken, cake,
mince, pumpkin and gooseberry pies,
and all the delicacies it takes to make
a fine banquet. Some of tho finest
fruit California produces was brought
by V. F- Wilson for the occasion.
At each plate were tokens of remem
brance from each brother and sister,
such as spoons, plates, neckties, silk
socks,, handkerchiefs, pitchers, pins
and various other articles. They also
received little tin pans and whistles
from Fanny Switzer and Fanny Put
camp to remind them of their childhood
days. A photo was taken while they
were at the table.
After spending two very pleasaut
days there, they departed Wednesday
evening for J. O. Wilson's, going to
Merna, Nebr., on tho train, where suf
ficient livery awaited to carry them to
his fine home west of Merna, Nebr.
On Thursday about 75 were served
to a bounteous dinner of roast turkey,
roast goose, fruit salad, fresh fruits,
cakes, pies and many other good things
fit for a king.
The day there was spent in.speaking,
singing and instrumental music by the
children and grandchildren; also a fine
sermon suitable for the occasion was
rendered by Rev. Hodges of Colorado.
There are 52 grandchildren and 42
great grandchildren, a great many of
them being present. This makes 117
children, (with their husbands and
Wives) grandchildren and great grand
The guests departed Friday, declar
ing both families royal entertainers,
after having spent a happy week. Yet
a sadness came oyer them, thinking it
might be their last meeting. They
have planned a meeting for 1915 in
California if all are living. God grant
it may be so. -

YOU can easily understand that in a business
the size of ours we can't tell exactly how
many suits and overcoats we can sell. Even if
we could we would buy more because it would
be a funny looking clothing store without
clothes, would it not? We have some beauti
ful goods left over that will make some men
happy. Better see them as we never carry
suits over from one season to another.
We have just closed our most successful busi
ness year. Our sales were a trifle better than
$10, 000. co more than in 1908. Quite a gain
for any town. When a business increases
like this one has there is a reason. It's no
secret just straight business. The reason is,
we are constantly giving more value for less
money that's true.
