Another Old Pioneer

On Monday morning, J. A. Tomlln
son, ono of tho old pioneers of this
COUIlty, who MlHVrort u t.trnln nt
apoplexy some tun davs nrnvlniiM.
died at his homo in this city. He was
born in Niagara county, New Vork, in
1S., and was . years of age.
Mr. Tomlinson came to tills county
in 1871. On his trip to the county from
Lincoln ho took ns a passenger, Or.
Williams, who was in Lincoln after
tho papers necessary to tho orgauiza
tiou of the county. Tho Doctor was
one of those who could not saroly be
trusted away from homo, and tho
papers, were in fact lost, at least, so
fnr us tho doctor knew Their nro-
horvation anil safe delivery at ltmi
Cloud was due to Mr. Tomlinson. John
was but llttlo more than a blc bor
when he arrived, but he immediately
took the lead of the young men in the
sports and amusements of pioneer
He was the swlfest thrower, the
heaviest batter, the champion boxer,
the best first baseman and the strong,
cut of all the younger pioneers. He
jjas better acquainted irith the men
yrho preceded the homesteaders, the
old (trappers, hunters and scouts, than
any other man in the county. ,, &
k? se'tfed as one of the primitive
rpad commissioner of tthe" county. He
adted as ehainman under UcCaUum in
locating the school, section sndrkur
reying out the public road. . .
He organized the first, fire .depart
mebt of the city, and conducted the
first nnd only state flroman's tourna
ment held in Red Cloud, and he
made it a grand success. The visiting
firemen, in fact, presented him with
handsome gold watch, in recognition
of bis services and efficiency.
He took hold of the electric light
system of the city when it was in a
state of confusion and labored ener
getically to restore it to something
During the latter years he has
dealt in electrical supplies and worked
independently in the installation and
repairof electric lines.
Mr. Tomlinson, was a man of enur.
getlccharacter,and energetic Unguage.
He spoke the truth, as he understood
it, without mincing matters, and with
entire regardlessness as to who might
be offended. Wherever plain speech,
and decisive, energetic conduct were
required, he was the man for the
He had just completed his service
on the jury at the last term of court
when he was stricken. He never
really regained consciousness.
This makes the second luror who
has fallen a victim since tho erection
