Col. II. C. McMaken returned last
night from Falrbury, where he had
been in attendance upon the conven

received a high honor at the hanus
of the convention, being chosen as'
one of the delegates to the national
encampment to bo held this year at
Atlantic City, N. J. This Is an honor
which falls to few men and' the Col.
Is Justly proud of it. In addition to
himself the delegates are Edward

they don't know much more of the
cause of the trouble than us mortals.
We can Just Imagine old Halley
laughing when he hung the tall of
his comet out yeBterdny morning in
the east while all the world looked
for it in the west. The explanation
of the whole thing Is that the tall
curved off to one side as the earth
approached it with the result the
earth missed it entirely. Whether
the earth will touch it or not Is con

chances favor missing altogether
Conducting Examination.
Miss Foster is engaged today In
conducting the examination of ap
plicants for teachers' certificates in
this county today. Another exami
nation is being held in Weeping Wat
er today, also. There are a large
number of applications for certifi
cates and these' are engaged In tak
ing the examination. Among the out
of town applicants aro Miss Ethel
llaynlo of Pacific Junction, la., Miss
Fern Kline of Cedar Creek, Miss Eva
Porter of Mynard, Misses Ednah and
Mayola Propst of Mynard. There are
also a great many applicants from
this city.
Mr. Will is hopeful that planting will
not make too great inroad on the
nelp he needs and that he can soon
get the road in shape for the rock.
Manager Davis of the telephone
company has made every effort to get
the company stirred into action and
Is well pleased with the result. A
few days more delay would have
probably resulted in further compli
cations and troubles between the city
and the company as the city authori
ties are getting exasperated over the
apparent Indifference which was be
ing paid to their request and had
about decided to topple the poles
over Into the creek. As it is the
squabble Is averted and the work will
now proceed.
DIED Johnson, Henry, at the Ma
sonic home, Plattsmouth, Nebras
ka, on Saturday, May 21, 1910, ol
uremia, aged 81 years, 7 months
and 6 days. Funeral at Wahoo,
. Neb., on Sunday, May 22, 1910,
under auspices of the Masonic
After an illness extending over
several months Henry Johnson at one
time one of the most prominent men
in Saunders county and in eastern
Nebraska, passed to his reward. For
some time past his life had been de
spaired of owing to heart troubles
and other complications, uremia be
ing the direct cause of his demise.
Deceased was well known In this city
where he had had many business
dealings during his life time and was
highly esteemed and respected. He
was always in his life time a thor
oughly upright and most estimable
man and all who knew him honor and
respect his memory.
Deceased was born In Wayne
county, Ind., on October 15, 1828,
and at the time of his death was ap
roaching the age of eighty-two years.
At an early age he came to Nebras
ka and for many years was In the
livery business and also in the horse
business. He accumulated a fortune
in this business which afterwards he
lost in unfortunate business specula
tions. From Ashland, deceased moved
to Wahoo where he became a mem
ber of lodge No. 53, A. F. & A. M.,
and was one of its most prominent
and influential members. While at
Wahoo Mr. Johnson entered Into the
fast horse business and for many,
years he raced horses over the Unit
ed ,S tetaswog &and. .oc.mau.Reta
ed States owning some of the beet
and speediest animals to be had. He
also was honored by the citizens of
Saunders county with election to the
office of sheriff and in this position
he gave great satisfatclon, filling the
6fflce In an excellent manner. Mr.
Johnsons wife died a number of
years ago and he is not survived by
any family.
The remains of this excellent man
will be interred at Wahoo, his old
home tomorrow, Sunday, May 22, the
body being taken to that city this
afternoon on the Schuyler train.
Messrs. J. N. Davis and II. K. Marcey
of Wahoo came down this morning
and will accompany the remains to
that place. Mr. Johnson was ad.
mitted to the Masonic home in thl3
city on May 5, 1909, where he has
since spent his days1.
Poisoned Hand.
Ed. Kruger, the driver of Soen
nichsen's delivery wagon, has beea
taking a layorf of several days suf
fering from a poisoned hand. The
young man scratched his hand on a
piece of brass about a week ago but
paid little attention to the matter
until It became infected and commen
ced to swell up. It was necesBary
'to have the hand and arm lanced
several times by a surgeon before the
effects of the poison could be count
eracted but it is believed now that
the serious trouble Is over and that
all which will be required now is time
in which to permit the hand to heal
up. It will be several days, however,
before he is able to go to work again.
