James Porter Jr., Formerly of
Cass County, Accidentally
Herman Bestor this morning re
ceived a telegram from Haigler,
Neb., announcing that James Porter,
Jr., had been accidentally killed this
morning. No particulars are -conveyed
in the telegram which is Just
a brief announcement of the death.
The news came as a great shock to
the many friends of the elder Mr.
Porter, who wa9 a pioneer resident
of this county. He was a candidate
for governor of the'state In 1868
and resided In this community un
til some twenty years ago, when he
removed to the west where he has
since resided. It Is not known
whether the body will 'be Interred
here or not and this will probably
be decided later. The sympathy of
everyone Is extended to the family
of the deceased to whom this great
sorrow has come.
Roads In a Horrible Condition.
Visitors In the city today pro
nounce the roads to be In the worst
condition for travel In years. The
mud is said to be something fierce
and that is certainly the case In the
city as the streets are literally mud
holes. This has resulted In covering
Main street with a slimy ooze which
makes travel across an unpleasant
task and has been productive of
much profanity on the part of those
unfortunate enough to have to make
the Journey. The city administra
tion could do much to popularize
Itself if It will get out some hose
and wash the slime off the pave
ment. The Idea that it will hurt
the pavement Is not tenable and the
work ought to be done. Old set
tlers pronounce the weather for the
past week without example In the
history of the state. The warm
moist weather with rain almost
every day is something which they
have not seen in November. It Is
liable at any time to turn off cold
and freeze up and If it does ' the
roads and streets will be frightful
to get over. So far as any of the
older Inhabitants run across yet can
say, they have never seen an equal
to this November for moisture.
Home Koclal Event.
Last Saturday was Miss Lulu Gar
rens' fifteenth birthday and in honor
of the event she entertained about
thirty of her young friends, Includ
ing several from Nebraska City. The
evening was spent very pleasantly In
playing games, listening to music
and having a general good time, af
ter which the guests were invited to
the Garrens restaurant where re
freshments were served consisting of
sandwiches, pickles, salad and coffee.
They all departed wishing Miss Lulu
many more happy birthdays.
Will H. Mark, residing west of
town, reached another mile-stone
through life last Saturday, and Mrs.
Mark invited a few of his friends to
call spend the evening. Mr. Mark
was found with his "boots off" and
enjoying his cigar and newspaper,
but he willingly laid them aside and
gave the "Intruders" a cordial wel
come. Tho evening (and morning
too) was spent very pleasantly, and
one of the nice features was the
splendid supper of oysters, cake
fruits and coffee, and it was near
the daylight hour when the guests
bade the Mark family 'good-nieht."
Charged With ife Abandonment.
In county court today the caso of
the state vs. Nellgh Is on for trial.
This Is a case where Charles Nellgh
Is charged with abandonment by his
wife, Ethel Grace Nellgh. The case
Is being hard fought, County At
torney Ra,msey representing the
state and Matthew Gerlng the de
fense. Judge Beeson Is hearing the
case. Mrs. Neligh, who is a daugh
ter of J. C. York of this city, charges
that after their marriage a short
time ago, Nellgh deserted her and
she has since made her home with
her parents in this city. Nellgh al
leges sho left him without cause.
Ruys Land In Boone County.
The Journal this morning received
a very pleasant visit from Milt W.
Moore, of Murdock, one of Elm
wood precinct's best citizens and a
mighty good Democrat. Mr. Moore
Is welcome here any time and the
Journal is sorry to hear that he con
templates moving from this county
to Boone county, where he recently
purchased threo quarters of a sec
tion of land. m Ills son Is already at
that place and Mr. Moore expects
to go there shortly and purchase
another quarter, making a full sec
tion, and later to move there. He
will bo a distinct loss to Murdock
and Cass county.

The M. W. A. Dance.
The dance which the M. W. A.
gave last Wednesday night was not
nearly so well attended as hoped for
and the boys did not make anything
to speak of over and above expen
ses. However, the affair was a most
delightful one and well worth at
tending. The music was of the us
ual high quality furnished by the
Woodman orchestra and was very
sweet. It Is to be hoped that the
dances which will be given in the
future will be better attended, as
they deserve to be. The committee
having charge of the affair consist
ing of Merrs. M. Joy, J. Peters and
Joe Wales and they "had spared no
pains no time to make the dance one
long to be remembered. That they
are more than capable of forming
plans for nice dances Is evident.
The Lucky Man.
The weekly unveiling of the clock
at Wescott's took place Wednesday
afternoon at 3 o'clock and by a cur

had won a week before again car
ried off the prize and took down
the three green dollars. The clock
stopped at 7:43:40 and Mr. Low
held ticket which read 7:39:58 be
ing the closest to the time. This is
a very curious freak of luck and
shows how very uncertain the mat
ter is. There wa3 the usual crowd
present and a great deal of interest
manifested in the outcome. These
drawings do well despite the bad
weather, as they always draw plenty
Dance at Cedar Creek.
.Manager Roy Holly, of the Wood
man orchestra, today received a let
ter from George Horn at Cedar
Creek stating he would give a dance
there on Saturday evening, December
4, and asking the Woodman orches
tra to play for it. George, we will
show the people that we don't have
to go to Omaha for music. The boys
are rapidly getting an established
reputation for good music and will
be kept busy all winter. They de
serve it as they have the goods and
can deliver them. And George Horn
deserves credit for his excellent Judg
ment in hiring this kind of music.
