! After eight weeks of suffering from
! rheumatism and nervous trouble ending
with pnenmonia, John G. Becher pasetd
away at his home last Thursday after
noon at four o'clock. Two months ago
be went to his home from the office com
plaining that he was not fseling well,
and from that time on be was unable to
leave the boase, and was out of his bed
but a few times. With him when he died
was bis wife and children and his broth
er, W. S. Becher of Omaha. The death
of Mr. Becher removes a man prominent
in democratic political circles, and one
who has held both county and city offi
ces, being treasurer of the county two
terms and mayor of the city for the year
1003. Besides this be was deputy coun
ty treasurer under H. S. Elliott and al
so held other positions at the court
houte. For the last three years Mr.
Becher has been the junior member of
tlie firm of Elliott, 8peice k Co., and
since the organization of the Equitable
Building and loan association has been
secretary of that institution, and to his
efforts are due the present condition of
the association. Mr. Becher was a man
who made friends and kept them, and
was universally liked by all. He was a
member of the Orpheus, which he as
sisted in organizing, an honorary mem
ber of the Bissell Hose company of the
city fire department. He was also a
member of the Knights of Pythias,
Woodmen of (the World, Sons of Herman
Modern Woidmen, A. O. U. W., Modern
Brotherhood of America and Royal High
landers. John G. Becher was born in
this city February 5. 1863, being the eld
est son of Mr. and Mrs. F. G. Becher,
both deceased. Mr. Becher' s father was
the first Union Pacifio agent in Colum
bus and later served as county clerk. On
November 6, 1888, he was married to Miss
Susan Wake, who with eight ohildrea,
survives him. The children are Frank.
Charles, Marguerite, Estella, Henry,
Lester, and Catherine Becher, and Mrs.
Lottie Kife. A brother, W. 8. Becher,
and two sisters, Mia. Anna Richards and
Estella Becher, are the other surviving
relatives. The funeral was held from
the family home at 2 o'clock Sunday and
was conducted by Rev. Roush of the
Methodist churoh, the music being by
the choir of Grace church. The City Band,
of whioh Mr. Becher, was a former mem
ber, headed the procession to the ceme
tery, where the services were conducted
by Rev. Roush. The large concouse of
people who attended the services,' both
at the bome-andUba cemetery, was a fit--1

The Corn show at the Fireman's hall
last Saturday afternoon brought out
twenty-two entries. C. B. Pugsley of the
atate experiment farm at Lincoln, was
to have judged the exhibits, but owing to
a previous engagement, could not be
here. In his absence three local judges,
Albert Stenger, D. A. Becher and O. O.
Gray, were elected, and they awarded
the prizes as follows: Yellow corn
First prize, Ed Loseke; second prize, D.
G. Bartels; third prize, John Grossniok
laus. White corn First prize, Fred
Mueller; second prize, M. A. Rice; third
prize, Carl Mueller. Calico corn First
prize, Pella Rice; second prize, W. F.
Dodde; third prize, Simon Iossi. In the
evening Mr. Pugsley passed through the
city and he was asked to address a
meeting on corn culture, and as the
judges did not consider themselves ex
perts in corn judging, he was asked to
review their awards. Redid so, and in
each case agreed with the decision of
the local judges. As there were some
very nice specimens on exhibition, it
was decided to make up an exhibit for
National corn show at Omaha next mon
th, and there is a prospect that Platte
county may carry off some of the honors.
Mr. George Godel, formerly of Scrib
ner. bat who is now moving on the Fred'
Stenger farm two miles southeast of the
city, met with a painful accident Friday
afternoon. The team which he was
driving was very fractions and became
frightened at a mattress, which had fall
en from the load of household furniture
that be had been unloading, and became
unmanageable and ran away, running
into a telephone pole near M.C. Heating's
residence on East Eleventh street. Mr.
Godel was thrown from the wagon and
severely injured. He was immediately
taken to the Keating home, where medi
cal aid was summoned and later in- the
day was removed to St Mary's hospital,
where. he is suffering a broken collar
bone, and is also badly braised about the
head and shoulders. Many witnessed
the accident and say that Mr. Godel is
very fortunate in not losing his life as it
waya very wicked runaway. Mr.Godel's
family will arrive in the city soon.
Forty years ago the first Y. M. O. A.
meeting ever held in this city was con
ducted by Robert Weidensall, at that
time the first general 'secretary of the
Y. M. C. A. Today Mr. Weidensall is
the secretary of the International Young
Men's Christian associations of New
York city, and in reaching that position
hss traveled over world in the work,
and has the honor of being the oldest
secretary in America. The local secre
tary issued an inviatation to Mr. Weid
ensall to take part in the opening of the
new building, and in accepting it he
mentioned the fact of his holding a meet
ing in this city forty years ago, aad said
hewoald be more than pleased to be
hers, saying that he had never besaia
Columbus since that time.
