- .Fifty years ago Mr. Meeker in the
prune of his. youth .covered the old
Oregon trail.. He is now going, over. the
same route-in the same style as then.' '
Ezra Meeker, one of the few surviving
phmeers who went to Oregon by way of
the old overland trail, who is now mak
ing the return journey with an ox and
cow team over the same route, arrived
ia Kearney this . morning. Mr. Meeker
started on his trip to Oregon, where he
hoped, to find a new home for himself
aad his yoaag wife," from Indianapolis,
IbjL, in October, 1851. He was then. 22
years of age. The return journey is
taken for the 'purpose of perpetuating
the memory of the "Old Oregon ' Trail."
aad erecting monuments,-wherever pos
sible to the memory of the pioneers who
orossed the plains and built an empire
out of the wild Bad. boundless West, and
keep fresh the memory 'of. their privation
aad hardships.. .- -
Mr. Masker has stopped- at several
places along the way and erected eighteen'
monnments np to this day. -Amoug the
places at- which the' monuments have
basa-erected are Baker City, Ore., Boise
City, Idaho, and one at -the summit of
the Rocky monntains in Wyoming nt
what ia known as the South pass. It' is
at an altitade of 7,450 feet above seaf
level, and within a short distance of
when the waters of the Sweetwater river
will be lead across the mountains through
the psas to be used in- irrigating lands
on the western side as a result of gov
ernment enterprise. . The region is a
wild now as when Mr. Meeker first passed
over the trail, only 'a few sheep herders
living in the vicinity. There is a little
poatoMce called Pacific- and. the next
nearest postoffice is ' eighty-four miles
Mr. Meeker hopes to erect a monu
ment in this city to the memory of the
old Oregon trail. He has nothing to do
with getting funds,' ,the collection . nnd
disbursement of the fund being gener
ally done by a local committee. He ex
pects to find the exact location of the old
trail near this city. Tuesday helozated
it just west of Overton.
' On his first journey- Mr, Meeker and
his yoang wife wintered at Eddyville,
Iowa,- There their'first child, Marion J '
Meeker was born. He was. seven weeks
old when they started out on the trip in
the spriBg and stood the journey in ex
cellent shape, lie ii nir' ruudfatber
and resides near bia father at Puyallup.
Wash. In Io'-va-nleo, they traded-off
their horses' for an ox and cow bum, anil
made tbeir.trip the rest of the' distance
with these animals.
TheMissoari river'was crossed about
six miles soulh-of where Omaha' is-aow
located, on May 19, 1852. Thirty or
forty miles -further they- struck the
Platte river, and continued to travel
atoag the north side of this stream af ter
wards, aad.lator the Sweetwater river,
which is 'the headwater of the Platte,
uatil they reached the South pass.
-.Mr. 'Meeker ..-was- unfortunate .'last
meek, having lost one .of . " his oxen by
death;',he has heard that there -are some
ia Platte eoanty and ia anxious to pur
chase "one" .and continue -his. journey.
He will be in Columbus about .August
98th. He is -'collecting material -for a
book on the overland trail which he ex
pects' to publish next winter and. on
account' of . hia interviews with, old
pioaeers atoag the old . route! tbe'.book
will uadoabtedly be of- great historical
valne. . - - ' .

In tbefirst place I'm-glad I broaght.no
more than I did. I have all that I coald
want,' the- people who have- more -ar.e
only bothered with.the care of them.'
I wear a blue veil to protect my eyes
now. I've had laundry .done .three, times
and will probably not' need, any ''again.
They do things beautifully but they are
'hard on them. Some., people have such
elaborate things but they do look so-out
of place.- - - ' '. .. -;" ':' ':i-
.1 haven't .done any .shopping herein
Rome but -I have gone to' all. the pro

lectures a day and I can't, keep; up with
that. Some days when we are out both
morningand afternoon I cutout all the
lectures: .But 'as long as I do-that -I
keep feeling perfectly well and I'm glad
to do that, so many people are underthe

.We leave.. for -Naples this afternoon
and there the different parties' separate
again,-some to-. sail, home;-some for
Greece and some for.Egypt.- One of the
Barber party, Miss.-Jones,' has derided
upon the Oreeke cruise. '-'We 'hate -so
much to see her go,-she is such a splen

and I stood together -on so many: things
and stood alone. She 'was Breta's niom"

we sat'on'tbe balcony eating ."coseaHas"

full now and ttie'-'other evening we .Went
over to the Colleseuin to see it by moon

for visiting Americans and we saw inter
esting things beside the beauty 'of that
mighty structure in 'the dim yellow
light. -- '
Sunday afternoon nil the'" Barbarians"

Appine Way. It was a- beautiful day
and the Alban.-Hills were splendid. in

lightful to drive along . that old road

tombs. The same road along. which
Paul came in chains to Rome, tlieMittle
church "Quo Vmlfs'. is '-'along 'the way
and we went in, I can't realize that those

was in prison here.- There is a

the Convention a telegram of greeting
In the'morning we. went to high mass
at the world famous St. Peters. I love
to wander around in thoae big cnurcheS
and I was there for- almost three hours.
There is a bronze statue of St. Peter
there and all devont Catholics who have
visited St. Peter's for the last six cen
turies have' kissed bis' toe and. said -a
prayer; until-, now '-there isn't mnch of
the toes left, 'I 'stood 'and watched' the
people doing' this for a long -' time. ! . We
drove around in the Vatican yards and
saw- the Vatican galleries, that huge
building of 11,000. rooms representing a
state by itself and a big machine. I tell
yon it makes one stop aud wonder.
- There have been "dozens of- other
things to see here; and' when I get-home
I can tell you bettor all about it.,
. The following taken from the State
Journal will be of interest to the Colnm
bus friends Of Mr. andIrs. Hunt: - Rev.
and. Mrs. W. S. Hunt and three" children"
met with a serious accident this -afternoon,
while enrouto-with 'the "'family
horse - and carriage for Clay - Center.
"When about a mile south of the cemetery
Mrs. .Hunt raised -'her parasol,-.which
frightened the' horse, causing it to" over
turn the buggy. .. Mr. and Mrs. Hunt and
the baby were .thrown out, landing' ' in. a
ditch partially filled' -With' water. The
horse started on-the home stretch,- with
the two. little' boys in the -back seat.
After about half a mile they were thrown
out, and 'a little farther on' -the horse'
came in contact with a' telephone pole
and was released from the -.buggy. Mr.
Hunt' was quite severely .bruised about
the -head and - shoulders. 'Mrs, 'Hunt
received quite severe' bruises -about, the
body, hut no' bones- were .broken. The
