From the Leader:
Peter Peterson from Chicago, and
Charles Peterson from Wyoming both
arrived in the city the last of the
week to visit their Nance and Platte
O. E. Green shipped fourteen head
of his thoroughbred white-face cattle
Tuesday to the Iowa state fair at Des
Moines. From there they will be sent
to the state fair at Lincoln, and from
there to South Dakota, and then to
Sioux City, finishing the circuit at St.
Joseph, Missouri. There are some
dandies in the bunch and O. E. ought
to bring home a whole bunch of rib
bons, and here's hoping he does.
The Leader man followed the crowd
and took in the chautauqua at Fuller
ton Sunday and enjoyed ourselves huge
ly except that midnight ride home.
Now while the Leader takes a good
many pokes at our county seat, most
of them in a josh, we want to saying
regard to their chautauqua, that the
business men of that town exhibit a
spirit of enterprise, energy and pro
gress! wness rarely found in any town
of any secton or size. That is one
thing they all get behind and push,
and now if they will get behind the
scheme to purchase and park the
grounds and push equally as hard they
will have built a monument to their
public spirit as lasting as time.
News of a surprising character
comes from over at Clarks. We learn
thnt Hufh Lockard. who is running a
meat market ai that place, has been
arrested accused for receiving stolen
cattle. It is charged that Hugh has
been huvimr cattle and horrs from a
couple worthless cusses over in that
country, who never tMissessed money
suflicent to buy a sucking pig, and
that he bought them for about half
price, knowing mat. iney were suneu.
He finally refused to allow them only
$25 for three cattle and one of them
squealed. This is the report as it
comes to us, but it is hard for Hugh's
Nance county friends to believe this
to be he truth in the matter, and are
with holdimr iudirement for further
had come here from her home in Chey
enne just eleven days prior to her
death in the hope that the change
would be beneficial. Although she had
been in poor health for years her
death, which was caused from heart
trouble, was unexpected. Her hus
band and two eldest sons were unable
to reach here until the following day.
Mrs. Doody. whose maiden name was
I Mary Whalen, was born in Ireland
'April 6, 1868. She immigratd to
this country in 1883 and settled in
.Illinois, where she remained until
J 1885 when she came to Platte county.
She was united in marriage to P. F.
nnoilv June 17. 1889. They con-
tinued to make Platte county their
home unltil 1897, when they moved
to Cheyenne, Wyoming, where they
have since resided. Her husband and
four children are left to mourn the loss
of a devoted wife and mother. Wil
liam, Charles, Kittie and John are the
names of the children. The funeral
occurred Sunday afternoon at two
o'clock from St. Joseph's church, Rev.
Cyria conductng the services.
for a few years, we will say that he
would gladly yeild his position to
some ther good citizen under ordinary
circumstances, but he does not appre
ciate the idea of being kicked off the
board in order to make room for some
body else, and we are of the belief
that the other members of the board
share tnis same opinion, so we are all
going down to Lincoln next Friday to
see who is who. And inasmuch as
we are a great believer in advertis
ing, we cannot help but think it is
alright because Humphrey will surely
be well advertised, however undesir
able the advertising may be.

E. F. Towslee and N. L. Squier
