The unofficial vote of the county,
as received at the office of the coun
ty clerk, gives the results in the var
ious party contests at the primaries
anl many very interesting races de
veloped in the battle of the ballots.
The most interesting development
of the election was the fact that Rex
Young, who gave Sheriff Quinton
one of the closest fights of his career,
had by polling too many republican
votes, eliminated himself from the
progressive nomination and also lack
ed the republican votes necessary to
win from the sheriff. This will leave
it up to the progressives to place an
other candidate in the field for the

moved to Plattsmouth, Nebraska.
They bought a farm four miles out
from this berg staying here until
two years later when a prairie fire
came fifteen miles and destroyed all
they had, the young mother barely
escaping with her life and her two
babies. Her husband started a black
smith shop in Plattsmouth and work

They again started life

mouth. To this union nine children
were born, one having died in in

through the hardships of pioneer
life. Some of the older children were
sent away to school while the young
er ones went to Murray, two and one
half miles to school.
The parents had their education
in Germany and could only learn the
English language as they learned
from the children studying at home.

the lives of those she reared and i
friends she constantly won. I
Her fondness for children was a I
marked expression of her loving and
gentle spirit. She was a model of pa- j
tience and because of her frequent
expressions of love for them, she
numbered among her friends a host
of little folk, who never tired of
gringing her flowers and dainties.
That she was able to withstand J
the suffering and radiate only cheer!
fnl tiflrfiilrif tlirmifbmit all her
years of suffering was due to the j
marvelous trust and sustaining pow

an example of simple faith in God.
May this life, which so magnified the
Christ, and so clearly demonstrated
that, "To know God is life and
peace," inspire those who remain to
mourn their loss, to a new determin
ation to serve the God she trusted.

STURM IS NOMINATED
The returns in the senatorial con

of Cass, Otoe and Sarpy counties,,
have not been fully reported as yet, j
but on the face of the returns from
Cass and Otoe the nomination of A. j

Mr. Sturm received 766 in Otoe'
county, and S73 in Cass county or a
total of 1,639, whib- his opponent,
Andrew P. Moran. r. rcivcd 345 in
Cass county and . -1- in Otoe county

vote in Sarpy county is very small
and therefore Mr. Sturm can read
his title to the nomiration clear.

concert of the Atlanta (Ga.) Jour

This is .the longest distance mes

that the radio is one of the grea?
modern means of communication and
that the smaler set can be made pos

season was offered last evening at
Garfield park bv the Elks band un

hof, and to enjoy this feature of the
summer entertainment program a
small but very appreciative audience
The community sales day served
to keep many away from the concert
who would otherwise have attended
but those who were present felt that
they were more than repaid in the
unusually well balanced program of
fered by the band. The concerts are
being sponsored by the City of Platts
mouth and will be given during July
and .August at' the park.
As an unusual feature of the
concerts the band is giving one num

the late jazz selections and one of
the standard musical compositions,
the one last evening being "Danger

Today is the anniversary of a most
memorable date, as it was on July
20. 1917, that Secretary of War
Baker started the drawing in the se
lective draft that was to supply the
men for the national army. The oc
casion was one of pride and sorrow
to the men who were the holders of
No. 258, the first number drawn, and
it will be well remembered the feel

county in the United States where
the number found some one waiting
to respond to the call of arms.

north of the town of Wyoming, in
Otoe county, and as the result of

The party were in the large Hud

Miss Harriett Peacock being at the
wheel and in the front seat with the
driver were Miss Florence Hodder
of Council Bluffs, Charles Hartford
and Charles Egenberger, while the
other eight members of the party
were in the back portion of the car.
It is stated that Miss Peacock was
unfamiliar with the road over which
knowing the road the car was driven
with full force into the embankment
on the east side of the road. Mem
bers of the party returning to this
city claim that the brakes on the
car would not work when the mem
bers of the party saw their danger
and it was only a few seconds until
they drove into the bank. The car
was forced into the bank by the
force with which they struck and
the front seat forced back into the
crowded rear part of the car and
the engine driven back onto the oc
cupants of the front seat.
Miss Harriett Peacock suffered a
severe cut on the forehead from the

their autos assisted in bringing the
injured parties to Neb. City where
they were hurried to the Wilson

Most of the members of the party

the members of the party enjoyed a

and coffee that had been provided
for the occasion. After the feast the

WRITES OF EARLY
LIFE IN COUNTY
Mrs. S. A. Rhoden of Chalkbutte, S.
D., Writes of Many Incidents
of Pioneer Days Here.
Seeing in the columns of the Jour
nal the announcement of the Old
Settlers' reunion to be held at Un
ion in August, has prompted Mrs.
S. A. Ithoden, a pioneer of Cass coun
ty, to write of the days when the
great plains country of the West
was just being settled by the pio
neers from the eastern states and
while the red men still dis puted with
the early settlers the right to lo
cate their homes in the hunting
grounds of the Indian.
Mrs. Ithoden, then Miss Addie
Lathrop, arrived here with her par
ents on April 15, ISCfi, from their
old home in Rock Island county. Ill
inois, and while only eight years old
at the time, Mrs. Rhoden well re
calls crossing the Missouri river at
Plattfmouth on a ferry boat, having
made the trip from Illinois in the
old covered wagon that was knovn
as a "prairie schooner."
The family located in the central
portion of this county and Mrs. Itho
den was a pupil at the old Pleasant
Valley school, three mil(s east of
Weeping Water, which town at that
time, Mrs. Rhoden states, consisted
of two buildings, a stone mill and
a stone school house. The graveyard
at Weeping Water at that time in
sisted of one tiny grave, that of a
child of a party of emigrants west
ward bound, that had died enroute
and was laid to sleep in the vacant
prairie land, and which' has since
become the cemetery of the I i 1 1 1
city that had grown up there. Mrs.
Rhoden is very anxious to hear from
anyone else that attended the Pitas
ant Valley school from 1SCC to '75.
as she would like to renew the
friendships of childhood days. She re
sided in Cass county forty-one years
and announces that she will be here
for the Old Settlers' reunion and de
sires' to meet the old time resident
ers of the county to share their stor-Ica-of
the days when Nebraska was
the frontier of the Indian country.
Mrs. Rhoden is the widow of Al
Rhoden, a brother of G. W. Rhoden
of this city.
