Surprised on His 51st Birthday.
J. D. (Dee for short) Shrader
was 51 years old on Saturday,
April 25, and his good wife, he
surmises, was the instigator of
the whole business. Anyhow, a
large crowd of old neighbors and
friends, consisting of members of
the whist, elub, broke in upon Dee
and his wife Friday evenin? with
well tilled baskets of everything
good for man or woman to
masticate, and at a time when
Dee was least expecting1 them,
and it. was not long until the
genuine good time began. Tables
were loaded down with the many
good things to eat, which all en
joyed, and games, music, etc.,
were on the pro?ram, and the
night seemed (o pass entirely too
swiftly, and when the hour for
their departure arrived, it was
not altogether welcomed by the
departing- "surprisers," but Un
wished Mr. Shrader many more
such happy birthdays. In honor
of the event the happy throng
presented Mr. Shrader with a fine
violin, and now Dee can "fiddle"
to his heart's content. It was in
deed a happy time for not. only
Dee and his wife, but also for the
parly of fifty old neighbors and
friends, who assisted so material
ly in making it so. Yet Dee won't
believe but what his wife knew all
about it before hand.
Almost a Fatal Accident.
Wednesday morning as Galen
Rhoden was passin? alon? the

rolled onto him in a ditch. It jus
happened that a few minutes
later John Thomasnn and Dave
Amiek came alon?, and with
their assistance he was release
from his perilous condition. He
was taken to his home, and Dr
Brendel called, who found tha
while no bones were broken, hi
body was very badly bruised, an.
he will be compelled to keep to his
bed for several days in con
sequence. ILwas indeed an ex
ceedingly narrow escape for
Galen from instant death. At last
accounts he was doing fairly well
Beautiful School Grounds.
The grounds for the new schoo
house in the north part of town
are indeed a beautiful spot. There
is just one acre, for which the
school board paid Mr. Virgin
$350, but. it is well worth the
price. It makes a large and
roomy play ground, unattended in
any way by danger to the smal
children v. ho would heretofore
wander into the streets to play.
the grounds where the old schoo
house is located bein? so small
The first thin? that should be
done now is to set out some
youn? shade trees on the new
grounds, and in a few years Mur
ray will have one of the finest
school parks in the state.

From Tuesdays Dally.
This morning the time oT the
county court was occupied in
hearing the matter of the probating-
of the last will and testament
of the last Mrs. Gertrude M.
Wiley, deceased, and the admis
sion and allowing of the will is
opposed by Charles E. Wiley of
Lincoln, a son of the deceased.
There was quite a number of wit
nesses present to testify in the
case, and the object of the de
fense seems to be to secure an
interperlation on the will of Hip
late W. W. ;iley, the husband of
the deceased lady, as they claim
her interest in part of the estate
was only for life, and at her death
reverted back to the original
estate, and that she had no right
to will it away. Attorney Stanley
F. Mutz of Lincoln appears for
the contestant and Attorney A. L.
Tidd for the proponents of the
will. The case will occupy the
entire day, as there are quite a
number of witnesses to testify.
Wiley Case Is Continued.
From Wednesday's Dally.
In the matter of the probating
of the will of Mrs. Gertrude M.
Wiley, deceased, which occupied
the attention of the county court
yesterday, the case lasted until -i
o'clock in the afternoon, when the
contestant was given, on the re
quest of his attorney, until Fri
day to prepare a brief on the law
points of the case to present to
the court. It is thought that re
gardless of the findings in this
court, mat it win ne taken to a
higher tribunal for settlement.
Out of the flotsam floalin? on
the sea of annonymous journal
ism, some one has secured this
bon-mot, and dubbed it "The
Knocker's Prayer." It is not a
classic, but it deserves at least
passin? reco?nition :
L.oru, piease uou i lei mis
town grow. I've lived here for
forty years and during that time
I have fought every improvement;
I have knocked everything and
everybody; no firm or individual
has established a business here
without my doing all that I could
to put them out of business. I
have used every method known to
the knocking fraternity to injure
their business; I've lied about
them and would have stolen from
them if I had had the courage; I
have done all I could to keep the
town from growing; never nave I
spoken a good word for it; but
instead I've knocked hard and
"It pains me, O Lord, to see
that in spite of my knocking, this
town is beginning to grow. Some
day, I fear, I will be called to put
down sidewalks in front of my
property, and who knows but what
I may have to help keep up the
streets that run by my property?
This, O Lord, would cost me
money, and I could not afford to
put out my money, although all
have was made right here,
"Then, too, more people might
come if the town begins to grow, tw0 dau?h(ors) moved to Paul
which would cause me to lose tne first of the week, but arrang
some of my pull. I ask,, there- ed for their daughters, Myrtle
fore, that you keep this town at a and Helen, to remain here to
standstill, that I may continue to
be the chief knocker. Amen,
