For if we believe that Jesus died and
rose again, even so them also thai
Rlep iu Jesus will God Bring with
him." 1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14.
Following is the obituary given !
in connection with the sermon, and
comment made by the minister, in
Mr. John Mugg Mefford was born
at West Point. Lee county, Iowa,
September 27, 1S57, so that he would
have reached his eighty-second birth
day In a few weeks. He was the eld
est son of James P. and Eliza J.
in 1S64, when he was seven years
oM he came with his parents and
three sisters to Nebraska which was
then a territory. They ' crewsed the
Missouri river by ferry and lived in
Plattsmouth. Two years later the
family moved to a farm two and a
half miles east of Greenwood on the
old I). L. D. highway. There they
built a home, which has been a
landmark since then. That was in
IS 66. He grew to manhood there,
and has lived in this neighborhood
most of his life since then. He was
therefore a pioneer settler in this
county and state. ,
On March 31, 1S7S, in his twenty-first
year, he married Miss Ealla
Welton. They were the parents of
five children, three of whom were
boys, two daughters. The mother
died and three of the children, name
ly, one son named Scott, two daugh
ters named Clara and Belle.
On July 6th, 1S9S. Mr. Mefford
married Miss Ada M. Amick, and to
this union five daughters 'were born:
one of these named Gladys does not
He was thus the father of ten chil
dren, of whom six remain, namely,
Steven, of Ashland; James P. of
Kansas City; Mrs. Ellen Kirk, and
Mrs. May Bauers. of Greenwood; Mrs.
Li Hie Kelley. of Walnut Illinois:
and Mrs. Louisa Homan, of South
Omaha. There are twenty-three
grandchildren, and three great
grandchildren. One brother of Mr.
Mefford also survives, Mr. Grant
Mefford of Ashland.
The deceased was assessor of Salt
Creek precinct, Cass county, for
thirty-one years. He had relatives
in all the major wars in which the
I'nited States has been engaged, for
his great-grandfather fought in, the
.Revolutionary war. and since then
ethers of his kindred have in suc
cession answered the call of their
country; in the. war of 1812, the
Mexican war, the Civil war, the
Spanish war, and the World war.
He made confession of faith in
Christ and united with G-eenwood
Christian church in early life, and
has adhered to this faith through all
He was a peaceable man, and mild
in disposition. Some people are fickle
and brittle and powery; you never
ran be quite sure of them. Others
are steady and genial and constant;
always about the same, and gener
ally to be depended on. To this lat
ter class Mr. Mefford belonged.
His heart was in the' right place
as a rule, and usually remained so.
It was a stout heart, coming through
the wear of the years and the buffet
ings of trouble with fortitude. If
the days a3 they passed brought joy
or sorrow, hardship or well-being,
all were endured with the same pa
tience. And through all his life he
labored to maintain a humble and
steadfast integrity. A man of lowly
tastes, with little of selfish ambi
tion, he was also a man of his word,
and honorable in his dealings.
He was known as a good neigh
bor. Those who knew him well say
that no one in need was ever turned
away from his door If it was in his
power to help. That is not a bad
. thing to say of a man. He was not
exacting, not overbearing, not dis
posed to harshly insist on his rights.
Being sympathetic to the other man's
print of view, he sometimes forgot
his own. or yielded through simple
He was in a public office for
thirty-one years. This of itself
speaks volumes. How can a man hold

ATTENDS WILD LIFE
In 1935 Charles Horn of the Fed
eral Cartridge Co. of Minneapolis
conceived the idea of a Wild Life
Conservation Camp to train the youth
of the nation in the conservation
and preservation of all forms of wild
life. He gave $500 to each of five
states and thru Mr. Frisbie, the 4-H
state leader in Nebraska, the first
camp was held at Seward in August
1935. Each year since that time he
has given a like amount to pay ex
penses for 40 4-H members and 10
leaders taking an active part in

comprising nine counties and to date

The camp is held in August and
lasts four days. Organization of
the camp begins on Tuesday morn
ing at the Seward city park and, in
good weather, all programs and ac
tivities are held out-of-doors. The
campers sleep on separate cots in the
Seward county fair buildings and at
all times are sponsored by state
club leaders, county and home dem
onstration agents and members of
parks and games commission. Two
game wardens are at the camp the
entire time to teach shooting, trap
ping and bait casting.
This year, August Sth to 11th,
eighty-five 4-Hers met at Seward for
the 5th annual conservation camp.
The program was divided into four
days; Water and Soil day, Bird day.
animal day and Fish day. A part of
each day was devoted to recreation,
swimmir,g. and vesper service.
Outstanding topics discussed were
"Birds. Our Friends," "Trees for
Beauty," "Game Propagation" and
"Swamps, Drainage and Fence
The campers especially enjoyed
the presence of H. N. Wheeler of the
U. S. Forest Service. Mr. Wheeler's
Illustrated lecture "The Place of
Trees in the Forest" emphasized the
need of trees, and the value of trees.
As Charles Horn, the camp bene
factor, was unable to attend camp,
his personal representative. G. W.
McCullough, assured the 4-Hers that
"Conservation Pays Dividends."
The campers journeyed to Lin
coln, Animal day. Cars were fur
nished by the Seward community.
Visits were made to Pioneer Park,
Antelope Park, and the museum.
The highlights of Fish day were
the fishing contest at 6 a. m and the
fish supper at 6 p. m. Prizes were
awarded to the individuals catching
the first fish and the most fish. The
game and parks commission had a
fish on exhibit at camp.
It was lots of fun to study nature
with boys and girls from all parts of
Nebraska. The splendid leadership
of Mr. Frisbie and cooperation of
everyone present made the camp edu
cational, impressive and a real vaca
