MURRAY HAS A
Delegation Conies Up Yesterday
Interview Commissioners in the
Interest f Better Roads.
From Wednesday's Pally.
Yesterday afternoon a large delega
tion from the Murray Commercial club
motored to this city to take up with
the county commissioners the matter
of securing better roads leading into
Murray. Those in the party were:
W. G. Boedeker, L. D. Iliatt, lion. W.
H. PulsW. S. Smith, Don C. Rhoden,
Ted Parrows, H. C. Creamer and II.
G. Todd. These gentlemen are among
the live, wide-awake members of the
Commercial club there and have start
ed out to secure the things needed to
make Murray better commercially and
to afford their farmer neighbors a way
of getting into town. They feel that
their town is entitled to receive much
needed work on the roads anil hav
presented a united effort to secure it
which is certainly a most laudab!
move. The roads- there, as they state
need dragging very badly and they
want the road supervisor and the
county to see that they are placed in
better shape for travel.
While here they secured figures on
the amount apportioned to their dis
triet and presented this to show tha
they were enlitld to have this work
ocne in their precinct. The new club
has started off on the light foot an
proposes to have some results to
hhow for their organization in a few
months that w ill ad I materially to
the advancement of Murray, and if all
the club members are as enthusiastic
workers as the committee of booster
visiting this city yesterday they are
certain to get' what they go after.
This-is the trueboosting spirit and our
neighboring town is certainly to be
congratulated On the energy and zci
with which thev enter into the worl
cf going after what they want.

PASSES OVER THE
II. L. Oldham, One of the Rest Known
Citizens in Cass County, Passes
Away at His Home in Murray.
Last night just after the passing of
tl.e midnight hour, Humphrey Lee
Oldham, one of the oldest and most
highly esteemed residents of Cass
county, passed to his final reward at
his home in Murray. Mr. Oldham had
been in very poor health for the nast
several months, and a few days ago
heart trouble was added to the com
plications of his sickness and hopes of
his recovery were dispartd of by the
physicians and the family and they
could only smooth his last hours with
loving deeds and await the coming of
the messenger that was to call their
loved one from their home.
Humphrey Lee Oldham was a native
of Missouri, having first saw the light
of day in that state at Brunswick, on
December 7, 1815. Here he made his
home with his parents for a number
of years, and during the bitterness of
the civil war a conflict was waged
there on .their farm between the
forces of General Sterling Price and j
the federal forces. At the close of
the war in 18f;"i the Oldham family re
moved to Iowa, locating in Pottawat
tamie county. After the family lo
cated there Mr. Oldham embarked in
the freighting business, which was
then in its prime, and made several
trips across what was then called the
plains, to Colorado and the western
towns which were compelled to secure
their supplies in this manner. It was
while Mr. Oldham was so engaged
that the family removed to Xebraska
u 1SCG and settled in Cass county on
the homestead known as the half-way
house, east of Murray. loiter, after his
marriage, Mr. Oldham located on a
farm, which ha? since become a part
of the village of Murray, and here the
family has made their home since
that time, lie was united in marriage
on Xovember 1871, to Miss Sarah
M. Storey, , who, with two daughters,
Misses Pauline and Fay Oldham, are
left to mourn his death, as well as two
sisters, Mrs. Cussie Baker and Mrs.
Dora Moore, and one brother, George
Oldham, the last two being residents
of Plattsmouth. The funeral of this
splendid citizen and friend will be held
tomorrow from the late home in Mur
ray at 1 o'clock.
