Lela Imo Branson Johnson, or
Imo Johnson, as she was lwiown
to us, was born December 8, 1893,
and died June 24, 1911, aged 17
years, 6 months and 18 days. She
leaves to mourn her loss her fos
ter parents, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel
Johnson; a father, Mr. Branson,
of Colorado; two sisters, a broth
er and two half-sisters. At the
age of 3 Imo was bereft of her
mother and at 4 was taken into
the homo of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel
Johnson, where she has since
made her home.
When it was known in our
midst that Imo had given up her
life here for a better life beyond,
there was sorrowing and tears in
every heart and home. Her life
had been a beautfiul one, scatter
ing sunshine, not only in her
home, but wherever she walked.
Old and young alike 'were her
friends, all the children knew Imo
and greeted her wherever they
met her. She had finished the
school course in Avoca and for
the past year had attended the
Lincoln High school, returning
homo only a few days before she
was taken ill. In the Christian
Sunday school and Endeavor so
ciety she was an earnest and wil
ling worker and was a great help
in the music, as organist, when
needed, and by the aid of heri
singularly sweet voice.
The iuneral services were held
at the Christian church June 26
at 2 o'clock. The sermon was
preached by Rev. Osterhout and
the music was furnished by voices
from both choirs. The songs
were: "Some Day the Silver Cord
Will Break," "Up There Sometime
We'll Understand," "Asleep in
Jesus," and "Gethsemane." Her
chair in the choir was left vacant
during the service. The floral
tributes were unusually profuse
and beautiful. The members of
the Sunday school had arranged
the altar in a beautiful manner
by building steps leading to the
gates ajar, with a cross and
crown. These were of white
draped in ivy and Easier lilies.
The pall-bearers were: Harold
Harmon, Lloyd Graham, Will
Fahnestock, Omar Nutzman, Will
Maseman and Harry Marquardt.
Honorary pall-bearers: Audrey
Harmon, Myrtle Wolfe, Lizzie
True, Alpha Andrews, Lydia Ben
ecke and Bertha Smoots.
Mr. and Mrs. Johnson, who
have loved Imo as they would
have loved their own daughter,
have the sympathy of everyone in
their sad bereavement. Every
thing that kind hands and loving
hearts could do was done, but
God, who doeth all things well,
knew best and we can only bow
our heads and say, "Thy will be

ONE OF THE HUSTLING
A Journal Representative Visits
Thriving Town of Nehawka and
Spends a Few Hours.
Last Friday the Journal pub
lisher and Mr. E. II. Schulhof
made another automobile trip to
the country, and this time visited
the flourishing little south Cass
ity of Nehawka, where Mr. Schul-
of had considerable piano work
to look after. While Mr. Schul-
of visited two of the prosperous
farm homes of that locality, Mr.
C. Todd and Mrs. Fred Shu-
maker, wo remained in Nehawka
for a visit with the numerous
friends of the Journal. We called
on trie merchant king, Frank
Sheldon, and, of course, found
im, as usual, one of the busy
men of the place. He had just re
turned from Omaha, where he had
been on the market with 120 head
of cattle. Forty head brought
6.20 and the balance $6.10, top
ping tne, market for this spring
on beef cattle.. . They were all
western stuff, fattened by Mr.
Sheldon on his place near Nehawka.
Generally speaking, we found
all the people of Nehawka in a
very prosperous condition, onjoy-
ng a good trade and highly elated
over llie present, prospects for a
good crop. l ne farmers were
harvesting one of tho largest
wheat crops in the history of tho
country, tho quality of which
looked to be pretty fair. We call
ed at the bank and enjoyed a few
moments' chat with the assistant
cashier, Frank Boedeker, but
found that Cashier West was en
oying a combined pleasure and
business trip down in Georgia.
Mr. J. F. Dale, the genial harness
man, was, as usual, busy making
repairs and new goods for the
trade. Mr. Dale has been a reader
of tho Journal for several years
and wo were pleased to meet him
We found our excellent friend,
Tommy Fulton, one of the busy
men of the town, employing two
men to assist him in the vast
amount of work. We believe Mr.
Fulton has one of the best equip

eral repair shops in Cass county,
and he is a busy man in all de
partments. We found Brother
