The company as now constituted
is composed of George Eaton, presi
dent: Will A. Manning, secretary
Grover McGeorce, treasurer and M.
It. Ballard. The last three named
are working at the excavating now,
but the work is progressing slowly
on account of the distance necessary
to remove the dirt and rocks from
the scene. An effort was made to
obtain permission to place the dirt
on the road now being built nearby,
but as it is a federal aid project the
countv judge would not allow the
dirt placed thereon until next spring
when there will be a permit granted
'.iy the government for its construc
tion and the request of these men
will probably be granted.
Mr. Eaton is encouraged over the
prospects in view of the fact that he
was in Plattsmouth last Saturday
and had his fortune told, the facts
being stated that he was a joint
possessor of some good property by
which a small creek ran, and that he
would soon be offered a thousand
dollars for the property, but was ad
vised not to accept as he would
soon realize a great deal more.

DIED AT HOME
Mrs. Frances Hodge Passed Away
After a Short Illness Buried
at Nebraska City.
Last Friday the remains of Mrs.
Frances Hodge, aged seventy years,
passed through Union from Nehawka
to X braska City, where they were
laid to rest after appropriate cere
monies by the loving hands of her
son. W. C. Hodge.
Mrs. Hodge, whose maiden name
was Miss Frances Kradt. was born
in Worcester, England. January 9,
1S50, coming to this country when
she was fifteen years of age. She left
but one son, with whom she made
her home, her husband having died
a number of years ago. She has liv
ed in Otoe county for the past thirty
years, and only last spring moved
from here with her son to near Xe
hawka. Mrs. Hodge was a sufferer for a
short time from the dread disease,
cancer. She leaves besides her son,
two prandchildren. Leland and Stan
ley Hodge, sons of the former. The
funeral was in charge of John Fass
bender, of Nebraska City, interment
being in the cemetery there.
Will REMAIN ii!
Sev. L. Morrison Unanimously Re
quested to Continue Pastorate
at This Place.
Rev. and Mrs. Morrison, who have
been at University Place for some
time past, returned home last week,
having been assigned to this place
another year, or rather having been
given the choice of Union or some
other charge, and having chosen
the former, in accordance with the
expressed wishes of the congrega
tion that they return to the pasto
rate here if possible. Rev. Morrison
has just completed a successful year
as pastor of the church here, and the
work he has accomplished stands as
a testimony of his fidelity to the
church and the good work which he
has accomplished for the Master.
And the fact that he is returned
here for another year in accordance
with the wishes of both himself and
his congregation, means that he will
be in better position to cater to the
spiritual needs of his. flock than be
fore. A mass meeting will be held
at the Baptist church Sunday even
ing by way of welcoming Mr. Morri
son nnd family back to Union and a
number of local speakers will make
short talks. The attendance of ev
eryone is urged.
