for J. O. Roberts. The old lady said

Tillie for some time and that they were

kept putting Roberts off on account of
Tillie's being too young. That Roberts
was very familiar and called them pa
and ma; one day he was out at the burn
with the old gentleman when he said,
"pa, if I had about $300 more than what
I have I could buy the lot next to mine
at Lincoln and it would make us a fine
building site." The old man reckoned
he could get it down at Omaha. And
to make a long story short Roberta got
the money of him, giving him a mortgage
on his household goods and horse and
buggy. He claimed a copy of the mort
gage was filed at Plattsmouth so that the
security was good. On examination to
day the old gentleman finds that
there lies been no copy filed
but on the contrary another
mortgage reposes quietly on the property
