the pleasure of the guests and
make the day a memorable one.
At twelve o’clock a bountiful
dinner was served, the long table
fairly groaning with the abund
ance provided. From what we
hear of the repast we venture to
say that most likely most of
the guests reached the groaning
state also from the quantity and
variety of the good things serv

all enjoying a real good, old fash
ioned visit with plenty of games
and amusements for the children,
and all who cared to participate.

homestead, which is now occupied
by his son, F. M. Shaffer. After
his family had grown up and sev
eral married, Mr. Shaffer gave tip
the farm and moved to town
to enjoy a well earned rest
and the comforts that come from
years of industry and frugality.
Airs. Shaffer passed away sev
eral years ago and perhaps the
only cloud over the happy day
was the absence of the mother,
who had made the old farm home
one of the happiest memories of
Six sons and one daughter,
with eleven grand children and

! ERNST BRACKHAHN HURT
STRUCK BY BURLINGTON PAS
SENGER NO. 15.
Was Returning Home from Town
Saturday When Struck Con
dition is Serious.
Ernst Brackhahn, who for
j years has lived across the Ne
maha, a short distance west of
the old Exchange mill, was
struck by Burlington passenger
No. 15 last Saturday as he was
returning home and is very
seriously hurt. His ankle is
crushed, his collar bone broken
and it is feared he has internal
injuries of a serious nature.
Mr. Brackhahn is used to
traveling to and from town by
the Exchange mill road; but
the bridge being out he had to
take the road farther west. He
is not accustomed to going this
road and knowing it was past
train time, he paid less atten
tion to the trains. A high
hedge obscures an approaching
train from the east and the
team was upon the track before
Mr. Brackhahn knew it was
near. The frightened horses
hesitated before dashing for
ward and the rear end of the
buggy was struck and smashed
into kindling wood. The horses
escaped uninjured, while Mr.
Brackhahn was thrown up in
the air. The train was stopped
at once and the conductor had
an auto sent for to bring the in
jured man to town. Several
persons saw the accident and
hastened to his assistance. He
was brought to the Moran hos
pital, by his request, and his
injuries were dressed. He is
still in a serious condition.
P. S. Heacock III.
The friends of P. S. Heacock
were astounded to learn that
he had been stricken with heart
failure last Friday evening and
that his condition was very
serious. He has been a sufferer
from diabetes and rheumatism,
and has not been well for some
time, though the first of the
week he was considered better.
His children were sent for im
mediately and a specialist, Dr.
Bridges of Omaha, was called
in consultation with Dr. Miner
and Dr. Reneker. He remained
until Monday. Mr. Heacock’s
condition remains very grave,
even though he has gained con
siderably from the first attack.
He is at least holding his own
remarkably well and hopes are
now entertained for his recov
ery. Miss Kate Heacock, who
has been in Porto Rico, sailed
by the grst boat last Wednes
day and will soon be at home.
Mrs. Martha Jones, who lives
norlh of the Mission in the
Third ward, sent to this office
last Monday a fine bunch of
strawberries and they were of
fine flavor, too. There were
ripe red ones, good sized white
ones, green ones and prettv
white blossoms. The crop has
blossomed and matured since
the late August rains. Mrs.
Jones has our thanks for the
A Little Grand Daughter.
Mr. and Mrs. D. W. SoVvles are
very proud of the fact that they
are now grand paernts. A little
daughter was born to Mr. and
Mrs. Hal Bowles of St. Joseph on
Thursday, October G, 1910 which
was also the second anniversary
of the marriage of her parents.
There is great happiness over the
arrival of the little lady.
