It's a horse on Conger, yet. Some
three weeks ago, The Northwest
ern published a stray notice of a
blind horse taken up by Stewart Con
ger, and thereby hangs a tale, horse
and all. It seems that somdtime in
March Thos. Shettler gave an old
blind horse to Ed. Knight. Knight’s
boy came after the horse, but in the
meantime the equine had strayed
away, and the boy returned home
minus said horse, but witliont notify
ing Mr. Shettler of the sad (?) quest.
The animal came to the hospitable
stables of Stewart Conger and put up
for feed and recreation. Stewart
advertised it in The Northwestern
and finally Lee Burnett accepted the
blind staggers, with the understand
ing to pay the advertising bill. He
then gave the horse to Jake Ben
schoter on the latter’s settlement of
all advertising and feed accounts,
which the latter generously paid,
“unsight and unseen.” Jake then
disposed of the four-footed ancient to
B. W. Parkhurst, in return therefor
receiving another horse, which he
sold or traded to J. S. Casada. Park
hurst. after seeing what he had, took
the beast back to Conger’s comfort
able quarters, notified Stewart of the
advent of the much transported skel
eton to his tender care, where it now
rests. In the meantime, Parkhurst
replevins the horse traded to Casada,
and there the matter rests, with the
“horse on Stewart Conger.”
Mother Called Home.
On Tuesday morning of this week,
at 5:30 o’clock, Grandma Long, amidst
her surviving sons, daughter and
other near relatives, sweetly breathed
her last, passing into the great
beyond as quietly and painlessly as
into the sleep of an innocent babe.
Funeral ceremonies were conducted
from the home of her son, John W.
Long, with whom she has passed the
later years of her life, Rev. Wise of
the Methodist church conducting the
services, and this morning her remains,
accompanied by the immediate fami
ly and relatives, were taken to the
old home at Clarinda, Iowa, there to
be deposited by the side of her
husband, a son and a daughter, who
had passed on before. Grandma Long
(Catherine Reid) was born in Pick
away county, Ohio, Nov. 17th, 1819;
departed this life May 8tli, 1906, at
Loup City, Nebraska, aged 86 years,
5 months and 25 days. She was mar
ried to Edward Long, Sept. 12tli,
1844. and was the mother of seven
children, three of whom survive her,
namely, George G.. Ella R., and John
Wallace Long. She with her hus
band, shortly after their marriage,
removed to Page county, Iowa, where
she lived after the death of her
husband until 1887, when with her
surviving children she removed to
Loup City, which has been her home
till the angel of death summoned her
to meet those gone before. From
early life she had been a consistent
and earnest worker in the Methodist
church, finding her chief source of
joy and comfort in its devotional
services. Grandma Long was one of
those self-sacrificing characters, who
ever believed it was more blessed to
give than to receive. She gave her
all to her children, endeavoring to
guide their feet in the paths of
happiness and peace, and though far
past the allotted span of life, her life
has been one perpetual blessing to
those she loved and to the community
in which she lived. Requiescat in

Dr. Long has received word that
his daughter. Miss Hazel Long, at
San Francisco, is nicely recovering
from her siege of inflammatory
rheumatism, and will soon be able to
make her journey to Loup City. And
the good doctor is correspondingly
elated over the prospect of soon see
ing his loved one.
A new partnership in the real estate
business in Loup City has been
formed between Editor E. A. Brown
of the Times-Independent and .1. F.
Nicoson, with office in the Times
editorial rooms. Now will the old
firms have to spiel harder than ever,
when Ed's gentle, persuasive powers
are enlisted in the same cause. We
wish the new firm unbounded success.
The services at the Presbyterian
church last Sunday were of especial
interest- Besides the always ex
cellent discourses of the pastor, Rev.
McEwen. the morning service was
enlivened by a glorious duet by Mr.
and Mrs. Chas. Leininger, while at
the evening service, besides a most
difficult, though very sweet anthem
by the choir, Messrs. Bert McKinnie
and Charlie Minshull gave most ap
preciative solos. The Presbyterian
services each Sunday are proving a
very joy in the church musical lines
of our city. •
