The Republican county convention
on Wednesday was a very harmonious
gathering and nominated a very strong
ticket , as follows : Representative , E.
M. Woods , of Danbury : county attor
ney , W. R. Starr , of Indianola ; commis
sioner 3d district , Stephen Belles , of
Box Elder. If the farmers want ? i rep
resentative in the Legislature they
must vote for Hon. E. M. Woods.
Red Willow county was awarded
sixth premium in the county fair con-
est at the state fair and would have
done much better if the arrangements
decided upon had been carried out. We
also got first on spring wheat , broom
orn and watermelons , and second on
onions and broom corn. Arthur Beck
got first on the best county map. Red
Willow always takes the cake when
she tries. ,
Mrs. Catherine Powell , mother of
the Powell brothers , died at the resi
dence of son her Frank on Monday after
noon of pneumonia. She came on the
lute excursion from Bluffton , Indiana ,
to visit her boys. She was sick when
she left home , but the desire to see her
children grew strong and she came , but
grew worse. The best care and skill
was given her , but the grim monster
had come for her and she had to go.
H. F. Pade , of McCook , was sent for ,
who embalmed the body and prepared
it for the return journey , accompanied
by two of her sons she had come to vi
sit. They left on Tuesday morning.
The deceased was sixty-five years of
age , and leaves five sons in Nebraska
and three daughters in Indiana.
