James Jordan was born in Vir

seige of scarlet fever which left
him partially deaf and weakened
mentally. On lop of this al'llic
I ion came the death of both par
ents, vet in spile of all lhee
handicaps be worked and saved
every day of his life. Honest and
upright in all his dealings, and al
though often the victim of
"sharks," he always made a good
living and each year added something-
to his slock of worldly
goods. At the age of 7l he still
toiled daily, and but for his 1111
ti nely death by gas in a hotel at
Plaltsmouth , miurht have lived
many years yet and enjoyed the
fruits of his labor. What a les

good reasoning1 power, etc. If lite
afflicted and early orphan can
prosper through life and pass the
three-score and ten, we should
not worry aboul our children who
have no affliction to handicap
them through life. Mr. Jordan
leaves one brother and many
friends to mourn his death.

These disposed of, counsel probably
will ask permission to take another
adjournment before calling their first
witness. This witness, it is said, will
be Luis A. Sarecky, the governor's
campaign secretary, whom counsel for
the impeachment managers failed to
put on the stand, although he was un
der subpoena. Sarecky indorsed many
of the checks given Sulzer in his cam
paign which were not reported in his
sworn statement of campaign contri
