The following sketch of his life is
taken from the Central City Non
At 12:15 yesterday morning George
W. Erb passed away, following an
illness of about three weeks. He
suffered from stomach and bowel
trouble and this ailment caused his
death. He had been a sufferer for
nine fears from stomach trouble and
or rheumatism and had been unable to
engage in active work for much of
that time. The funeral services will
be held at the Methodist church Satur
day morning at 10:30 and the family
will then accompany the body to Col
umbus, where interment will take
place in the Shell Creek cemetary.
George Washington Erb was born in
Columbus, Ohio, February 22, 1S56,
and was thus 55 years, 5 months and
ten days old. When he was nine
months old his parents came to Nebra
ska, settling near Columbus, where
he grew to manhood. On November
28, 1882, he was married to Amanda
F. McCormick. To this union two
sons were born, Michael C, who
died at the age of seven, and Harry
A., who survives. In 1891 the fam
ily moved to Alliance, where they re
sided for six years, then removing to
Central City, where they have since
resided. Mr. Erb had been a member
of the Methodist church since 1889
and was a regular attendant at all its
services whenever it was possible for
him to attend. He was a man of
strong faith and his life was a re
flection of his faith. Besides his wid
ow and son, Harry, there is an adopt
ed son, Allan, nine years of age to
mourn his departure. Mr. Erb was
the oldest of fifteen children, of
whom one brother and four sisters an

of Australian gold, having been mint
ed three years prior to the discovery
of gold in California, and was given
to Mr. Lane's father by General Cas
sius M. Clay in 1854. Since that

The members of the committee hav
ing in charge the preparations for the
Y. M. A. C. lecture course for next
winter announce that they have ar
ranged for the program, which is an
exceptionally strong one. The course
will consist of four numbers and every
one is a gem in its class. There are
two lecture numbers, the lecturers be
ing Francis J. Heney, the great graft
prosecuter of San Francisco, who will
tell the story of the overthrow of graft
in that city, and Edward Amherst Ott,
who choses for his lecture the some
what abstract subject of "Sour
Grapes." But whatever about the
subject, the lecture itself has attract
ed large crowds of appreciative people
wherever it has been delivered. An
other number will be Montaville
Flowers the impersonator, who comes
in a Shakesperean role. A number of
Columbus people will remember Mr.
Flowers as having appeared here a
number of years ago in a reading of
"Ben Hur," at a meeting of the
North Nebraska teachers' association.
The fourth number of the course is
the Chicago Glee Club, which is now
traveling in its thirteenth year, and is
sure to prove a treat for the music
lovers of the city. The sale of season
tickets will commence before long,
and the task of selling enough of the
season tickets to insure the procuring
of this strong course is a large one.
Let us jremember that nothing is too
good for Columbus, and everybody
help to inaore its success.
