Our excellent friend Dave Lloyd who
has has been sick a larger portion of
the time this fall, remains about the
same, some days he feels greatly im
proved, and others he finds himself in
the same old disagreeable condition. It

will cost in the neighborhood of $1,000
in all, but if $750.00 can be raised by
popular subscription, they will make
the changes, or at least the larger por
tion of them. This is certainly a good
move, and the committee appointed to
look after the matter should receive en
couragement on every hand. Lloyd
Gapen and Dr. Brendel were selected as
soliciting committee, and B. A. Root,

The Tower Fell.
Have you heard of the thrilling ex
perience that our good friend, Lloyd
Gapen, and his son met with a few
days ago in endeavoring to handle one
of his unruly colts, out of which he has
hopes of making a gentle working ani
mal. During the big snow storm a few
days ago, Lloyd and his son hitched the
colt with a working partner to the big
wagon, and taking the lines they start
ed for a drive. The animal started for
a run in place of the gentle anticipated
drive, aud struck the running gears of
the wagon against the towei of the big
wind mill, on the home place, with such
force to throw the same to the ground.
The heavy snow was the cause of
but little damage being done to the fall
ing structure. Lloyd was very thank
ful to escape without injury to himself

Who Passed Away at the
Home of G. S. Ray on
L. II. Chalfant (best known as
"Ham") was born December 22, 1870,
in Rock Bluffs precinct, Cass county,
Nebraska, five miles southeast of Mur
ray, on his grandfather's farm, which
he owned at the time of his death. In
Ham's childhood, his father moved to
Liberty precinct, where he now resides
and where Ham wa3 reared to young
manhood. Twenty years ago at the age
of seventeer, Ham came back to run
the farm and take care of his grand
father, and has resided 'here mostly
ever since. Ueing one ol the most in
dustrious young men of the county, he
had gained the friendship and good will
of all the people to whom he was
Ham was taken suddenly ill February
13, 1903, which later developed into
pneumonia. He was too ill to be re
moved to his father's home, so he was
taken to the home of his near neighbor,
G. S. Ray, where he received all care
and attention possible, and would say
he could not have fallen into, better
hands, being personally acquainted with
the Rays, and from information re
ceived from Drs. Gilmore and Brendel,
will say that it would be hard to find
more competent nurses in the country
than Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Ray. There
was no improvement in his condition
and a trained nurse was employed from
Omaha, but Ham was beyond human
aid, and passed away on the morning
of February 20, 1908. His father,
mother and one nephew were with him
when he died. He was a member of
the M. W. A. and also the A. O. U. W.
by whom the funeral services were con
ducted. Interment was made in the
Lewiston cemetery February 22. His
funeral was one of the largest ever held
in this vicinity, extending from the
cemetery almost to George Ray's resi
dence, a distance of one mile.
Through industry and economy this
young man had acquired a competence,
and was looked upon as a man in every
sense of the term. The large crowd
which attended the funeral shows the
high esteem in which he was held by
those who knew him best.

Spring is now conceded by all leading
veterinarians to be as essential to a
horse's well being as shoeing him or
giving him a com lot table bed tolieon.
