the court house would have
been inadequate to hold the
many who were anxious to hear

were to speak.

climbing on a chair, and before
it could be taken from him he

Made Good Showing

and one hind foot, rendering it
almost worthless. It is feared
the animal has run his last race.

One of Richardson County's Citi
zens Coes to Her Reward
Susan Anna Mittower was born
in Seneca County, Ohio, Decem
ber 14, 1827 and died at JBarada,
Nebraska, Oct. 20, 1908. At the
age of 15 yrears she united with
the English Lutheran church.
In August 21, 185*> she was
united in marriage to Jeptha
Dunn and a few years later they
removed to Michigan where>thev
lived for fourteen years, from
there they went to Ohio and in
1890 they came to Nebraska
where they have since made
their home with their son R. J.
Dunn of this place.
Her husband preceded her to
the better world on April 28,
ld07. To this union two sons
were born, R. J. and I. A. Dunn
both of this place.
Grandma Dunn, as she was
lovingly called by all who knew
her was a gentle, sympathetic
friend and was beloved by all.
Since the death of her husband
she has never been satisfied and
now while it’s hard for her loved
ones to give her up we can only
realize that their loss is her gain.
Yet quiet and unassuming as was
her life she will be greatly miss
ed by all and all joJh in extend
ing heartfelt sympathy to the
bereaved and sorrowing relatives.
Proved One of the Interesting At
tractions of the Week
In spite of the extremely disa
greeable weather the Turner Art
Exhibit at the council rooms
Tuesday and Wednesday of this
week, given under the auspices
of the Falls City Public schools,
was tairly well attended, a great
many people viewing the beauti
ful collection of pictures on dis
At the evening sessions a splen
did program was rendered, which
was greatlj' enjoyed- The affair
was given for the purpose of
raising funds for school room
decoration and a great many
pictures will be purchased for
that purpose, which will add
greatly to the beauty of our
school rooms.

A Pioneer of Nebraska And Tor
Years a Leading Attorney
of The State
Judge Jefferson H. Broady, long
a well known lawyer in South
eastern Nebraska, died at his j
home in Lincoln, Thursday Oct. '
15th, at about the hour of four j
o’clock in the afternoon. He had j
not been in robust health for
some months previous to his
death, but there was no appre
hension on/the part of his family
and friends that anything serious
would result on that account, and
but for an unexpected stroke of
paralysis some six weeks ago, he
might have regained his health.
It was ordered otherwise, and
while there was hope of his re
covery from the first stroke of the
fell disease, a second one ensued
the Sunday before his death, the
result could not be doubtful. He
is gone and will not be seen as of
yore, when our court shall sit.
Judge Broady came to Nebras
ka some forty-one years ago, and
located at Brownville in Nemaha
county. It was about the time
Nebraska put off its territorial
swaddling clothes and became a
member of the family of states
that compose the great republic
He did not help to build the state
but he rendered marked assist
ance in illustrating its judicial
polity. For several years he was
associated in the practice of law
at Brownville, with the late E.
W. Thomas, who was for a long
lim.. a leading member of the bar
of the state. Judge Broady was
an able lawyer and an honest
man. but he didn’t blazen the
fact on his card or proclaim it
from the housetops. He was
modest, unassuming and to some
extent retiring in his general dis
position, but firm in his convic
tions, and untiring in his efforts
in the service of his clients for
whom he fought. In the course
of his career in Nebraska, Judge
Broady was honored by the
people with several offices of
public trust,and was true to them
all. His eight years on the bench
of our district court, in point of
efficient service, will compare
favorably with that of any of his
predecessors or successors in that
eminent station.
This is not a biography, but a
simple note of the fact that the
country has lost a good citizen;
the profession of the law one of
its best practitioners, and the
writer a friend of long years
standing. He is the last but one
of the lawyers in Nebraska, south
of the Platte River, who were
here in the decade of I860. The
others have one by one preceded
him to their rest and to silence,
as the ceasless procession of tne
years, will carry all living in the
time to come.
The writer recalls among that
number many that were known
to our present citizenship, and
1 many others who were not known.
I Of those who were here in 1800
j but three in the stare are still in
: life.
The others are all dead. We
may recall the names of Daniel
Gantt, O.P. Mason, Wm.II.Taylor,
Wm.McRanan,Nebraska City; T.
i M- Marquette and Pottinger
! of Plattsraoutli: l'. C. Johnson,
1 Dan McGary, O. B- Hewitt, K.
W. Thomas and James Bedford
| of Brownville; R. S. Dundy, A
i Schoenheit of Ralls Citv, and
Gov. David Butler of Pawnee
'City. These were all residents
of the South Platte country, and
the roll of the dead north of that
river is still more numerous, and
may not be mentioned here.
Among all these Jefferson H.

was the peer of the very best
He has been with us, served
the purpose of his creation, and

Falls City and Highland Meet With
Our Team Winner
Only one of the two games ad
vertised for last week betweeen
Falls City and Highland was
played,and only a portion of that,
with our boys in the lead. There
was a little trouble between the
players, which is greatly regret
ted by all, and as some of our
boys were going to leave town
which would weaken our team to
an alarming extent, it was
thought best to pay the visitors
the amount of their guarantee
and allow them to go home, which
they did.
This will doubtless be the last
game this season, and it seems
to us that now is an opportune
time to talk base ball for next
year. With the splendid bunch
of players we have,and this year’s
record to back them, there is no
reason why a champion base
ball team for 1909 could not be
made an assured fact.
The boys deserve much praise
for the efforts they made this
season, and for the excellent
sport they furnished our people.
It has all been done without one
cent of recompense to them, and
it is sincerely hoped that our peo
ple will show their appreciation
by a boost for a 1‘*0<i base ball

Rain Interfered With Republican
Meeting st Preston
A large crowd of voters gath
ered at Preston on Tuesday even
ing to listen to the speaking by
C. F. Reavis and the legislative
candidates. The latter were
there but Mr. Reavis was unable
to fill his appointment on account
of the heavy rain. He had been

roads so bad from the heavy
rain that they were forced to turn

Wins Two Games of Basket Ball
From Opponents on Last Sat
urday Afternoon
About t wo week-, ago our High
School bo vs and girls’ basket
ball teams received an invitation
to come to Auburn Saturday,
Oct. 17. for the purpose of
being slaughtered by players
representing the Auburn High
High School.
Accordingly, last Saturday
morning our teams, loaded in
three automobiles, made their
way over hill and vale to the fair
village to the northward, to play
a practice game.
They arrived in Auburn at
high noon and were well fed be
fore the game.
At two thirty the girls’ teams
came forth upon the field of bat
tle. The whistle blew, Lucille
our center, gave the signal and
the game was on. The feature
of the game was the guarding by
Maud Davis and Grace Reavis, by
reason of which the ball scarcely
got into Auburn’s half of the
Camiile Leyda did some gxiod
work at goal throwing and our
two forewards, Clara Stockton
and Bertha Stumbo were free
from the grounds nearly all the
time. One of the Peru Normal’s
star players said the team work
was the best he had ever seen in
a girls’ game
When the dust had cleared
away and Auburn had linaally
awakened to what was going on
the score stood 21 to <> in favor
of Falls City.
The score in the boys’ game
was a little closer but no time in
the game did Auburn show either
as good individual or team work
as Falls City.
I vast year when our boys bea{
Auburn, Auburn attributed it to
the fact that our boys were
heavier, but this year they have
by far the heavier team in avoir
dupois We haye proved to you
now, Auburn that your defeat
last year was not due to the boys
weight. When the din of battle
ceased, the referee announced*
“Falls City wins the game, score
20 to 14.” Everyone of the boys
played the game every minute.
The line up was Fred Herbster
center; David Keavis and Frank
Kanaly, forwards; Amos Yoder
and Virgil Falloon, guards.
We were nearly “slaughtered’’
alright but we had two good
“practice” games and brought
home their scalps. Messrs. Nel
son, Crook and Grush drove the
cars, and much credit is due them
for the careful manner in which
they handle their cars and for
their courtesy and kindness.
The salute and sign of recog
nition of the crowd was, one
finger up and two short whistles,
taught us by Nelson, who never
forget to salute those wrho passed.
The ladies of Auburn hod a hard
time taking care of Crook during
the game. Everyone enjoyed the
trip, and especially the victory.
