When the Herndon House Was Omaha's Leading Hotel

BV JEA.V ALLAN JOHNSON.
S the lmposins III rurtiif
erected by the I nlon Pacific
I railroad Is nearlng comple
tion, a owming the cltliens
of Omaha should loak upon
With milch nt-Ma -
, l-i uc, M i r n I rill-
iniscences of the old headquarters. In
former times known as the Herndon
house, may prove to be of Interest. The
arly settlers aa well as the progressive
citizen of today may be Interested In a
lew Items concerning the building and Its
surroundings. .
My residence In the Herndon dates
from 1S60 to 1863. when Omaha was but
a Milage, and when I see the Improve
ments of today In that vicinity. It Is
almost impossible to realise that the play
irround of the children In those days
is covered with buildings whose business
Is counted into the millions and whose
traffic extends far Into the Orient.
I remember a meeting held In the
Herndon In the Interest of a Pacific
railway. I recall the names of T. C.
JJurant. Sidney Dillon. Jack Casement
and his brother Dan, Peter Dey, 8. B.
Heed, and I think that George Francis
Train was also present at tills conference
of men who planned one of the greatest
railroads of today.
I well remember the arrival of the first
locomotive and Its transportation on the
ferry that navigated between the Iowa
and .uraska banks. This was a civic
vent and the entire population of Omaha
m at the landing to give It a royal wel
come. This and other engines were
named for famous leaders of the Civil
War, Grant, Sheridan and Farragut.
When the road was completed to a
distance of twelve miles, I enjoyed my
first Journey to Bahllngs Grove, riding
on a flat car with a varied crowd, squaws
Included, who seemed to enjoy the short
outing aa well as I did.
Among the residents of the hotel at
that time were Dr. and 'Mrs. E. Y.
Chllde, parents of Rheta Chllde Dorr, a
prominent contributor to the press. The
doctor was a druggist in the Pioneer
block. S. S. Caldwell and wife were
permanent boarders, and Victor B. Cald
well, one of Omaha's prominent bankers,
was born here. Reuben Wood and wife,
parents of Mrs. Judge Redick; Judge
Redlck, sr., and two sons, Will and
Charlie; Dr. " and Mrs. Monell,
grandparents of Gilbert M. Hitch
cock; W. B. Hibbard and wife,
whose daughter is a teacher In the
Omaha schools, were aleo Herndon
boarders, as were James W. Van Nos
tiand and wife.
Donald B. Allan, storekeeper of the
Union Pacific, has the distinction of be
ing the only employe of the "Safe Road
to Travel," born In the building. The
register of the iierndon, now in the
possession of Mr. Allan, son of the pro
prietor, is quite a curiosity and con
tains the names of many well known
citizens of Omaha and neighboring towns.
lr. R. C. Moore's signature ooks very
much as it does today, when he is called
to your home and attaches it to a pre
scription. The signature of Casper E.
Tost, as president of the Nebraska Tele
phone company, compares very well with
the one in the register. "U. S. Infantry"
or "U. S. Cavalry" is often noticed after
names. General a. M. O'Brien is registered
as . "home on leave of absence." The

Inspectors of today would have been
horrified could they have seen the bacon
and hard tack stacked up exposed to
germs In a store room under the build
ing, used for a commissary.
When news of a victory for the north
was received in Omaha an Illumination,
which consisted of wooden brackets with
holes for candles placed In rows across
the windows, until the whole building
was lighted, was considered something
fine; but this would look quite dim when
compared with the electric lights of to
day, but we had "candle power."
The reslent boarders were allowed
lamps, but the trannlents were supplied
with candles. There was no "hot air"
in the early days, and I often think it
a mlraole that we survived the winters
with wood only for fuel, the supply at
times being green Cottonwood, in a few
stoves distributed throughout the build
ing. But as many, of the occupants have
lived to an advanced age, the atmosphere
may have been better than that of the
overheated homes of today.
We had the honor to entertain General
sales made, the money to be used toward
putting up a chapter house in Omaha.
The women who will have charge of
the opening Saturday are Mesdames
Clara E. Burbunk, W. B. Howard, Carrie
O. Scott, J. M. Sturdevant, Ida Ilium,

the best the market afforded was secured
for him. When his son. Father Sherman,
visited Oeihton university, I had the
pleasure or meeting him and rcealltiiu
reminiscences of his father.
We depended largely upon boats ly.
In between Omnlui ami St. Joseph for
supples ami luxuries. I recall the. J. H.
I. acey, named for one of Omaha's prom
inent cltlaens; the Colorado, Glasgow,
Denver, Kate Kinney, etc. W. W. Cope
land was a clerk on one of these and
II. 1. IVupI was at one tlmo steamboat
gent. Tho society of the town would
take advantage of the anchorage of one
of these boats to have daiuMnc parties
on it beforo the return trip to St. Joseph.
Ono of tho popular clerkn of the hotel
was Daniel Webster Hitchcock, who
afterward become nn estimable employe
of the "ovciland," general passenger
BKcnt in n Francisco.
The basement of the Herndon was for
a time urcd as Jail for United States
prisoners, when the present president of
o? the Nobraska Telephone company. C.
E. Tost, was United States marshal.
At one tlmo tho citlxens were very
much excited over an expected attack
by Indians, and the hotel was to be the
shelter for the women and children, but
the raid faied to materialize.
The offices now occupied by the freight
department were used by the Overland
stage line. Regular trips were made lo
the west and on their return carried
much treasure In gold dust and nusuets.
One party, en their return east after
hnvlntr struck It rich, tarrlrd a few days
In Omaha to celebrate and partook too
lavishly of liquid refreshments. What
could not be Imbibed was distributed
over a new carpet. But they had plenty
and paid well for It in nugget. The
safe at the hotel held fortunes In those
days.
The dining room, now occupied by the
passenger department, was a large one
and the only place that afforded space
enough for the balls and dunces attended
by Omaha's smart set. Quadrllls and the
lancers seemed to be the favorites, with
ox-caslonally a waits or the varsovlenne.
The steward or a colored waiter would
"call off and Aaron Cahn and Byron
Reed help out with their violins. Christ
mas was celebrated one year with a
danoe and a huge tree donated and
trimmed by the resident bonrders. Gcorgo
Francis Train entertained tho assem
blage with stories and a Chinese dance
which was novel and amusing. Enter
tainments were also given for the bene
fit of the soldiers, consisting of concerts,
tableaux, etc.. In which Miss Gussle
KBtabrook, who married Colonel R c.
Clowry, and Maggie Ingnlls, now Mrs.
Marc Peck, played prominent parts, a
stage and scenery being used.
A family named Ralston, whose daugh
ter In after years contracted a secret
marriage with the famous bandit, Jesse
James, tarried a few days at the hotel.
She visited Omaha In 1876 or 1877, but
none of her friends knew of this mar
riage. The old Union Pacific headquarters
will soon be vacated and the army of
employes be at home In a magnificent
building, but It will be left with some
feeling of regret, as expressed by a prom
inent official a few days ago, on account
of the ansoclatlons. For my part, I look
back to some of the happiest hours of
my life spent In and around this old
landmark of a busy and progressive city.
In Omaha, having visited often at the
home of her uncle, Mr. D. C. Patterson.
She is a graduate of Brownell Hall and
also of National Park seminary at Wash

tained her in this city.

With More Advice on the Care
of the Hair.
If every woman would do as I tell her,
the makers of puffs, switches, transfor
' - motions, rats, etc., would have
to go out of business.
Wash the hair frequently,
using Herpicide Soap. Apply
Newbro's Herpicide regularly,
twice or three tlmos every week
and watch the results. The
change will be a roost surpris
ing one.
Let me show you a letter from mv
4 friend, Mrs. Dr. Dest of Cottage
Grove, Oregon, she says;
"I ean say from experience that Xew
oro's Kerplolde Is the most wonderful
hair grower auA dandrnlf remover that
was ever made. After using- it for some
lime will say that I am greatly pleased.
Kerplolde la a splendid preparation."
Herpicide makes the hair beautiful,
allowing It to grow naturally and luxur
iantly. Other preparations are claimed
bo "Just as Rood," but Newbro's
original remedy, it kills
, prevents falling hair,
o scalp. Ask for gen
be sure you get it.
