Pioneer of 1878 Celebrates the
Eighty-first Anniversary of
Her Birthday.
Fighly years oM, "eighty year
oung." The stars, the hills and
the sens are old, but, Grandma
Towner is not old. '"At evening
lime it -.hall be light." and some
of the brightness came n her on
tier Nuth birthday. There was
nulling very remarkable in the
fael that Cramlma Towner had a
hirlhdav, for -he has bad several
of th'-iu. The lirsl one was in
grand old Glasgow. Kenluekv.
"She was born in obi Kentucky,
whieh, you know, was mighty
luekv," February 3, 1S.1I. She
does not remember very much
that happened on that, or three or
four following anniversaries, for
she was very busy, but this is the
first lime she every celebrated the
HOth anniversary of her birthday,
and some of her friends, finding
out about it, thought that it would
be a pleasant reminder in the
coming days, to have some pretty
souvenirs of the occasion. So
Ihe beautiful post cards were sent
from east and west, north and
south, until more than 100 were
received by her, who thinks each
one "just as pretty as it can be."
As she treasures I hem one by one,
she will recall the loving hearts
that prompted the kind remem
brance. This will brighten many
of Ihe long, lonely hours, as she
sils in her chair, unable to go
about, while her daughter with
whom she lives, Mrs. Addie
Lewis, is busy about her work.
Mrs. Lewis had some of Ihe old
time neighbors to dinner. Among
Iheui were Mrs. Pauline Kausche,
who was among the pioneers in
1878, and Mrs. Alice O'Connor,
now living w ith her daughter near
After dinner Mr. Olson ami the
Moss family, the evangelist am!
singers, who were then holding
meetings together with Pastor H.
S. Champic and wife, and Miss
Vera, came in for a cheery visit.
They sang several beautiful
songs, and left "Oranduia" feeling
that her cup of happiness was
full, but in ii lillle while il had
lo be packed down, and began to
run over as one afler another
came in with hearty greelings and
good wishes.
"Old friends ami new, tried
fireinls and true, welcome, wel
come, nolo vou." About :i p. in.
the pastor of the M. F. church,
Itev. A. Monroe, w it h his w il'e and
several more, came in. They sang
a number of her favorite hymns.
Mr. Monroe gave a very i!ilere
iug talk ami earnest prayer of
I hanksv.iv ing ami parise for find's
wonderful goodness, and the lone
period of usefulness ami Chris-!
I inn serv ice I his aged saint had
been permitted to enjoy.
Then ( iramlmu Towner talked.
Among many good things she
said, speaking of the early days,
and later ones, was: "I am so
glad I started to serve the blessed
Lord while I was very young. It
pavs to give Cod our very best."
She urged that special effort be
put forth to bring the young into
the watchful care of Ihe church.
Several teslitled to the help ami
encouragement Cirandma had been
to them during Ihe pioneer days
of this country.
At 1 o'clock Hessie Kuykendall
with her "band of sunshine" came
in. My Ibis lime Hint cup of hap
piness had run over until it tilled
the whole room. There were 13
little girl sunshines, who gathered
around the chair and sang several
songs, their sweet young voices
making rich melody in the hearts
of all who heard them.
Miranda Towner's maiden name
was Ashley. On August 2 4, 1818,
she was married lo A. C. Towner,
in Misouri. with whom she lived
more than 50 years, until he was
called to his heavenly home about,
four years ago. She is the mother
of lit children, 15 of whom are
slill living. She used to say, "I
always did hale lo see an old hen
clucking around with one chick
en. They always look so lone
some." They came lo (larllehl county
in the fall of 1878. when they
moved to Falling Spring, Since
her husband's death she has lived
with her daughter, Mrs. Addie
Lewis. Within a year after he
died she had pieced red and
while "double Irish chain" bed
ituills f,.r children and grand
children. "All alike, so one could
mil think another was (he pret
tiest." July to. I i)n), she was celling
ready lo go to Ihe Pioneer din
ner, when she fell and broke her
hip. Since thai time she has been
contlned lo her room, but has re
mained i h'-erfu! and bright.
F!l;i DeMow.
The above appeared in a recent
l-sne of the I'omeroy ;Wasll.i
Vahiiigtonian. a copy of which
was furnished the Journal by Mr.
William (iilmour. Mrs. Towner's
husband, who died several years
ago. was a brother of Mrs. Wil
liam (iiliiii'iir. being 2 ears her
senior. He will probably be re
membered by a number of the
very earliest pioneers, being tbe
tirst sheriir that Cass county ever
had. to which position he was ap
pointed in 1 nrr by Franklin
Pierce, president of (tie United
states. The family lived in Cass
county a number of years, and the

Stock Car Gets Off Track and
Goes Off to One Side The
Train Breaks In Two.
An extra freight train, west
bound, was wrecked this morning
directly in front of the Hurling
ton depot. One car, an empty
slock car, went off the track and
half way down the bank, while the
front trucks of the car behind
turned sideways on the track.
The train was going by at the
usual hair-raising speed of the
freight trains as they pass the
station going west, when the
brake beam of one of the cars be
came caught in a guard rail. The
beam dragged along for nuite a
distance and then the wheels went
off on the east side of the (rack
ami the car broke loose from Hit
one in front.
It wiis about time for No. Ci, the
Deiivcr-Chirnsro Limited, to come
through from the west and a large
force of men were put to work to
clear the track. The wreck caused
a large crowd to collect, and they
siiw an exhibition of how a rail
coml clears wreckage o(T the track
by means of an engine. Mv Ihe
pulling ami pushing methods an
engine can do swift execution.
provided the (rack is not torn up.
The track was cleared by a few
minutes before ) o'clock and bolh
passenger trains wen! on lo their
destinations, No. f having been
delayed about an hour.
Many a Suffering Woman
Drags herself painfully through
her daily tasks, suffering from
backache, headache, nervousness,
loss of appetite and poor sleep,

kidney and bladder troubles. Foley

pain and misery and a prompt re
turn to health and strength. No
woman who so suffers can afford
to overlook Foley Kidney Pills.
