County Surveyor Fred Patterson
Secures Several More to Add
to His Collection.
From Wednesday's Dally.
The lime of Hie district court
was taken up yesterday with the
hearing of the famous Mary Mil
ler will case, which was appealed
from the county court by Mrs
Jane Worth, a sister of Mrs. Mil
ler, who was a beneficiary under
one of the numerous wills that
Mrs. Miller executed at different
times and which she was sup
posed to have revoked by an in
Htrument which several witnesses
testified she had signed in their
presence, hut which was after
wards lost and has not been found
tip to this time.
Mrs. Miller had been under I he
charge of a guardian for some
years In-fore her death, and at one
time executed a deed giving to her
sister, Mrs. Worth, title to all her
property, including an 80-acro
farm and two lots in the villagu
of MurraV. but the deed was set
"asitie by iue stale supremo court
on the ground of the mental in-1
competency of Mrs, Miller flM,j
the influence thai her sister held
over her. The suit for the sel

Worth was commenced first, by
John Murray, jr., but lalcr l. -I.
Pitman, as guardian of Mrs. Mil

fact that the instrument revoking!
the will bad been made, upon
which Mrs. Worth carried the
matter to the district court, where
it was given a hearing before
Judge ( loch ran and a jury. There
were a largo number of witnesses
examined by both sides, including
Attorney Myron Clark of Omaha,
who hail attended to the legal
business for Mrs. Miller; Dr. J.
F. Brendel and C. II. Hoedeker,
who were witnesses of the signing
of the missing instrument.
The jury was excused by Judge
Cochran until !) o'clock this morn
ing, when the taking of testimony
was resumed and several wit
nesses were placed on the stand,
and the prospects are that the
case will occupy all of the after
noon session, as there are several
more witnesses to appear.
County Surveyor Fred Patter
son, wink- ai nis larni at nor
Bluffs a few days ago. unearthed
a very interesting iihiiuii rem-,
which he has on exhibition at his
office in Ihe court house. It is
apparently a part of an ancient
Indian mill used to grind grain
and bad been buried for years in
the great hills that, surround the
icinity of Hock liluffs.
Mr. Patterson discovered the
lone while walking along the
road toward his mail box, and dug
it out of the ground in which it
was buried. Not far from where
Ihe stone was found there has
been a large number of flint
arrow-heads dug up and that
locality must at one time have
been the headquarters of the In
dians who roamed the Nebraska
prairies in large numbers, and
that, theory is strengthened by the
fact that Ihe great bills there
would give I hem a lookout over
the Missouri valley for miles and
miles. In the same locality there
is a largo place, apparently hoi
lowed out as a meeting place of
the tribe, and near this spot it is
impossible to raise crops, show
ing that in the years gone by the
land was killed by being used as
a gathering place of a largo num
ber of the natives of the plains.
Mr. Patterson is very desirous
of searching further in the mai
ler, as he believes that many
relics that would contribute much
to his history of early days in
Nebraska could be unearthed,
which is undoubtedly true, as Ihe
bluffs of Ihe Missouri was the
favorite spot for the gathering of
the Omaha and Otoo tribes of In
dians, and many of their chief
tans are buried where they could
keep a watch ovep (he valley of
Ihe Nig Muddy.

SUBMITTED III BRIEF
HE SPIRIT TO IMPROVE
STILL MANIFESTS ITSELF
From Wednesday's Dally.
I.asl evening alter supper
Judge Cochran heard the long-
lived case of Akin L. McDonald
vs. Agnes L. McDonald. The case
is a very interesting one and has
been on the docket of the court in
different forms since 1008, and
Ihe end is not yet, as the judge,
after listening to testimony in the
case for several hours, requested
the attorneys to submit their
arguments in brief form.
Mrs. McDonald secured a di
vorce from her first husband in
181)4, in Oklahoma, under the ter
ritorial law, which was iater de
clared invalid, by the supreme
court of the United States, and
prior to the law being declared in
valid she had married Mr. Mc
Donald in this county. After the
decision of the supreme court a
suit for separate maintenance
was started by Mrs. McDonald
against her husband, and he set
up as a defense that they were not
legally married, as her divorce
from her first husband was not
good. A divorce was finally given
in the case, and Mrs. McDonald
was restrained from using Ihe
name of McDonald, but Hint was
later modified by Judge Jessen of
the district court, who allowed
her the use of Ihe name, and the
present suit is to prohibit her
using ..lb- ,,;,. f McDonald.
William DelesDernn-r appeared
for McDonald, while William C.
Ramsey of Omaha was attorney
for Mrs. McDonald.

One of the improvements to the
residence property of the city that

of E. B. l'erry, on west Oranile

enough t" accommodate the fam-!

suprise to the friends of the con
tracting parlies occurred this
morning at the county court room
when Judge Beeson united in
marriage Mr. William Weten

Miss Emily Warner. The young
people bad intended to effect a
complete surprise on their many

a very successful job of it, as
only the parents were aware of
the intentions of the young
couple. They departed this aft

Iowa, where they will visit, a sis
ter of the bride for a short lime,

The bride, Miss Warner, is the
very charming and accomplished
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles
II. Warner, residing southwest of
this city, and is a young lady who
was born and reared in this

Mynard, and he has made a host
of friends by his splendid quali

all will join in wishing him and
