thousands of people, and was probably a
dozen miles in length; that they were
advanced in agriculture, and in certain
lines of manufacturing. He expected to

Death of Mn. J. P. Abta.
Thursday morning, June 22, at 10:35,
after an illness of ten weeks, Mrs. J. P.
Abts departed this life.
Elizabeth Gruenhack was born August
3, 1837, near Cologne, province of the
Rhine, Germany; she was married to J.
P. Abts June 29, 1857, and in a few days
after the wedding, started for America,
settling in Grant county, Wisconsin,
whence they moved to Cedar county,
Nebraska, in 18C9. From there they
went to Stanton county, residing two
years, coming to Platte county in 1877,
and have resided here ever since. She
was ailing for ten weeks, suffering a
great deal. We understand that there
was fear on the part of the physicians
that she had not the physical strength
to endure the surgical operation which
seemed absolutely necessary to be made,
as a chance for recovery.
She leaves her sorrowing husband and
eight children, bereaved of a faithful
wife and loving mother, three of her
children having preceded her to the
Summer Land. The surviving children
are: Mrs. Maggie Stoltze, Sioux City;
Mrs. Oilia Patsch, H. W. Abts, M. Abts,

A recent letter from E. P. McCormick
tells m that L N. Taylor died June 3d,
in Phoenix, Arizona, to which place he
moved from Nebraska in 1886. His
chief ailment waa heart diaease, which
waa complicated with other troubles
during the last four years. He leaves a
double family: The widow, Samuel,
Chas. K, cashier of a bank, Edward K,
in California, Frank B., on the family
ranch, and Stella, Mrs. a a Montgom
mery; Dora died some ten years ago.
Mr.Taylor will be remembered by many
Jouknaii readers as a man of mark here
in his time. Ha came to the city highly
recommended aa a scholar and a man of
intelligence. He waa a partner of L.
Gerrard from 1868 to 1870, attending to
the. land part of their extensive business.
Afterwards he waa a partner here of S.
C. Smith; then removed to Oakdale and
afterwards to Arizona.
Mr. Taylor was born in Ross county,
Ohio, in September, 1817, waa a cousin
of Governor Wise and a relative of
Zachary Taylor. He graduated at
Athens, Ohio, and waa ordained to
preach by the Presbyterians. He was a
co-laborer with Henry Ward Becher in
Indiana. He was associated in anti
slavery work with John A. Logan, Gov.
Yates, Richard Ogleaby and Gen. Lew
Mr. Leander Gerrard has the kindliest
recollections of his intercourse with Mr.
Taylor, who waa always affable, agree
able, considerate of others and withal
very attentive to business, and very
well informed. Notwithstanding that
his business of surveyor and locating
land for settlers required him to travel
all kinds of weather under all kinds of
circumstances, Mr. Gerrard does not
remember of his ever being sick or ail
ing. Hia mental strength waa aa re
markable as his physical, and many who
read these lines can testify to the
smoothness, the polish and the finish of
his sentences. While here he acted aa
clerk of the district court, as county
surveyor, aa superintendent of schools,
as county judge, and we believe was
elected a member of the territorial legis
lature, but not called upon to serve, aa
the state waa meantime admitted into
the union. We remember that be was
secretary of the state board of immi
gration, during a very important era in
the state's settlement
Mr. Taylor, in the Centennial year,
prepared a very readable but unpreten
tious history of Platte county, a few
copies of which may still be found here
and there, illustrative of the earlier days.
We learn from the Monroe Looking
Glasa that Mr. Taylor left his family in
comfortable circumstances, and that his
mind waa clear up to hia last hours, and
apparently had lost none of its vigor.
Thursday evening the teachers of
the county Institute were all invited by
Sup't Leavy to bring their friends to
the high school, where they were given
a reception. Mr. Leavy had prepared a
treat in the way of lectures from Prof.
Parsons and Prof. Bigelow, as well as
treating to great quantities of ice cream
and cake, after the lectures. Prof. Par
sons, the writing and drawing teacher
waa first called on to give a crayon talk.
Mr. Parsons is a real genius in his art
He keeps up a constant talk one could
hardly call it a lecture the conversation
is so directly addressed to each and so
free from affectation. He ia so droll
and tells so many witty, instructive
stories at the same time making hia
drawings, that he keepa his audience in
a constant uproar. Prof. Bigelow fol
lowed the chalk talk by a talk on the
value of good reading for children in the
home. He emphasized the fact that
growing children should be encouraged
in every way to read more good books.
Mr. Bigelow seems to have made this
subject a study and evidently speaks
from experience. He has introduced
drawing and painting in his schools, the
children studying from nature, and have
produced some fine results. Friday, the
teachers of the institute presented Prof.
Leavy with a handsome leather-upholstered
chair that will be prized for the
esteem his teachers feel for him.
