The wedded life of Mr. and Mrs.

death of the wife and mother on Oc
tober 10. 1017. and since that time
Mr. Wiles lias made his home with
his children, a greater part of the
time beirg spent at Minitare.
During the pioneer days in Ne
braska. Mr. Wiles had an Important
part in the history of Cass county,
and has always been a prominent fig
ure in the active life of the com
munity. In the struggles of the set
tlers against the Indians in early
days Mr .Wiles was a member of Co.
H 2nd Nebraska cavalry, in which
organization he held the rank of 1st
Lieutenant and on being mustered
out of the service of the federal gov
ernment he organized Co. B. Nebras
ka militia, and was selected as cap
tain of the company and served dur
ing the time that the homes of t he
residents of the territory were threat
ened. Captain Wiles was a member of the
last territorial legislature of Nebras
ka that met at Omaha, January 10.
1S67. and had an important part in
the forming of the laws of the new
state. In politics Captain Wiles has
always affiliated with the republican
party but has never allowed his par
tisan feeling to shake his friendship
with the associates of other politi
cal belief than himself.
In his youth our old friend was
a member of the Quaker, faith but
when the Christian church was or
ganized in Plattsmouth some fifty
years ago he united with that faith
and his since been a devout member
of that church.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. and Mrs.
Luke L. Wiles entertained the mem
bers of the family and a few old as
sociates of the father at dinner at
the home and the occasion was one
of the greatest pleasures. Pour mem
