J. A. McDANIEL
Say$ the Jury After Nearly
Two Days in Taking Evidence.
The case of the state against Grant
Blunt was concluded yesterday after
noon, having dragged along for a
day and a half in getting the evi
dence for and against the state's
case. The Jury was out about one
hour when it brought In a verdict
for the state and against the pris
oner. The accused was charged with
grand larceny and not with burglary,
the information alleging that the
value of the goods stolen was
thirty-five dollars and upwards."
When the verdict was read, after the
Jury had filed in to the box, after its
deliberations, the verdict was opened
by the clerk and handed to the court,
who glanced over it and observed
that the jury had found the value
of the goods to be $120.00, or there
abouts, which value had not been
proven. Judge Travis then sent the
jury back and instructed them to find
the value of the property as charged
in the information. This was the
work of but a short time when a
verdict of guilty was returned into
court and the Jury discharged until
nine o'clock this morning.
The verdict meets the approval of
all who heard the evidence, as the
accused has an unsavory reputation,
having Just prior to returning to
Plattsmouth, completed a term In
the -military prison for desertion
from the army. Ills career as a crim
inal began early, and before he ar
rived at the age qualifying him for
the penitentiary, he was, sent to the
reform school for delinquencies the
law could not wink at.
The defendant will have the usual
three days to file a motion for a new
trial, before sentence will be passed

William Burger Relates Some Interesting Facts About Life Along
the Oregon Trail in Early Days.
William Burger, who was here last
week visiting his brother, A. H. Bur- j
ger of Glenwood, and his sister, Mrs. '
Thomas Young, of Hastings, told the 1
Tribune man some Interesting facts '
about his life. He was an early day
resident of Mills county, and came
here with his parents from Missouri
iu. 1849. when he was live years old.
In 1860, when a lad only 16 years
of age, he Joined the great throng of
emigrants who were pouring across
the plains Into Colorado and other
western states, where rich discoveries
of gold and silver were constantly
being made. For six months he was
a teamster in Uncle Sam's regular
army In Colorado, and, during the
early part of the civil war, he
freighted across the plains between
Omaha and Denver,
Mr. Burger can relate many inter
esting Incidents of those days. He
became acquainted with many of the
famous scouts, Boldlers and plains
men of that period. He was in sev
eral lively skirmishes with the In
dians, and for a period of two years
during the latter part of the war was
compelled to return to Mills county
and wait until the Indians quieted
down enough so that it would bo safe
to return to his family.

Occasion of His Thirty-first Birth
day Observed by Friends.
Last Friday occurred the 31st
birthday anniversary of Chas. Perry,
and in the evening a large number
of friends assembled at his home to
assist him in remembering the day.
At about 8:30 o'clock the crowd
walked in, unannounced, and suc
ceeded in completely surprising both
Mr. and Mrs. Perry, who soon recov
ered and made the guests welcome.
The perfectly delightful evening
passed all too quickly with games
and social conversation. Misses Old
ham and Perry each gave some
choice readings which were much ap
preciated. At the proper hour a two
course luncheon, which had been pre
pared by the ladies, added greatly to
the pleasures of the evening. A fine
rocking chair was presented to Mr.
Perry as a token of remembrance.

For the past 45 years Mr. Burger
has lived in Hall county, not far from
Grand Island, Neb. He has a largo
ranch near Doniphan, and is the own
er of the largest general merchandise
store In that thriving little city. He
Is one of the early day pioneers In
that region. He has seen the country
develop from a vast region of prairie
grass to finely Improved and modern
ly equipped farms. The automobile
and rural mall wagon now operate
where onco the Indians and the buf
falo roamed at will.
Mr. Burger, for a hair dozen years
before the advent of the railroad,
kept a stage station, inn and general,
store at hi ranch. All his supplies
were hauled from riattsmouth, 160
miles distant. Some Idea may be had
of the extent of his business at that
time when it Is known that he had a
stable that would hold 300 horses.
The famous Oregon trail, which
followed along the south side of the
Platte river and through a portion ot
his land, was a great highway along
which thousands of teams passed.
This quite naturally brought him
much trade and enabled him to build
up a big business.
Speaking ot the Oregon tra:;. Mr.
Burger says he can still see evidences
of its existence on his land after
more than 40 years of non-use. It
was a great pathway across the
plains. In places it would be a halt
mile In width, then at other points tt
would narrow down to BO or 100
This trail was traversed for a score
of years before the coming of the
railroad. The tramping that it re
ceived from the thousands of emi
grant trains and heavy freight wag
ons, hauled as they were by long lines
of oxen or mules, churned the fioll
into dust. Wind storms would carry
this dust away, leaving Irregular
ditches and depressions and removing
the valuable top soil.
Mr. Burger says that It has taken,
years to get this land back to 'its
original fertility, and he linn had to
use great quantities of fertilizer to
restore the strength of the soil.. Ha
has heretofore been able to trace the
old trail through his lnnd not only by
the depression that It made but by
the scantier crops It produced Glen
