again. The old gentleman is eighty
three years of age and for the past

MORE MURDERS IN ROCK
BLUFFS THAN ONE
From Wednesday's Dally.
Yesterday the Journal printed an
article written after an Interview
with our excellent friend, William
Gilmour, residing south of this city
In which we stated that the Shera
murder was the first ever committed
In Rock Bluffs precinct. The Jour
nal also has a friend residing In
Plattsmouth and one who has resid
ed here for many years In the person
of Mr. Joseph Johnson who says Mr.
Gllmore Is mistaken In the number
and localities of some of the Cass
county murders. A great many years
ago a man whose name ho has for
gotten, but who was conducting a sa
loon Just below the old town of Itock
Bluffs was murdered and the mur
derer escaped across the river and
was never captured. About forty
yenrs ago he says an old lady by tho
name of Towers was shot down from
a clump of underbrush along tho
reailslde, being killed. Mr. Johnson
does not mnke this statement with
tho Intention of entering any con
troversy whatever, but bo says It is
right to place the crime where It Is

Has Lived on One Farm Near
Murray For Past Thirty-five
From Wednesday's Dally.
Mrs. S. J. Fleming, one of tbe pl
neer ladies of Cass county died at her
home one mile south and two miles
west of Murray at one o'clock this
morning of complication of diseases
which has been very baffling to the
physicians but was thought to be can
cer. The deceased has been 111 for
some months past and expert medical
aid was summoned with no avail. She
grew wurse gradually until the end
came at one o'clock this morning.
Miss Orlllla Holeomb was born in
LaSalle county, Illinois, on the 12th
day of April, 1841,'and was married
to Samuel J. Fleming in 1861, mov
ing to Cass county and later settling

In 1874, Sir. Fleming. having answer
ed' the ''final call and 'passed' to the
great beyond ten years previous.
While Mrs. Fleming had lived to ad
vanced age, being sixty-nine years
of age, she was In perfect health up
to two years ago when the trouble
that caused her death first appeared,
In the form of a growth under the i
arm. This was removed by an opera
tion and she seemed to Improve for
a time but later returned with fatal
To this happy union four children
were born, three daughters and one
son, the three daughters survive her,

ago. The three surviving daughters
are Mrs. Silas Crabtree, who lives In
Idaho, Mrs. J. T. Porter, with whom
the deceased has made her home on
the old farm near Murray, and Mrs.
Dlalr Porter, living In Union.
The bereaved relatives have the
sympathy of ail in this, their hour
of deepest sorrow, and In the passing
of this most highly esteemed lady
they realize the fact that the loss is
not only confined to the near rela
tives but to the entire community
where she has lived for bo many
years. A loss which only lifes ever
changing events can subdue.
The funeral will be held at the
late home on Thursday afternoon and
interment will be had in Mt. Pleas
ant cemetery where all that remains
earthly of this excellent lady will be
laid beside her chosen companion
through life, her husband.
