We hope everyone had
a very Merry Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year 2006.
Perhaps we will get some nice temps instead of cold and snowy days.
December in Fremont was cold and snowy.
Did everyone find
something new in their stocking regarding a family ancestor? Claire
found one in reading the Look Backs in the 80 years ago regarding her
Grandmother Talbott. She was a librarian at the Hebron Public Library,
now she knew this part, but no dates to put it together, now it is a new
clue for her. Claire also completed several researches before the
holidays which would be new finds for two families. Oh, what fun it is
to have only a name and go to our local tickler files 1880-1906 and find
lots of "goodies" for one not knowing only a name, but locating the
We extend our deepest

Yesterday morning at
an early hour a fellow who had given out that he had rented the old
Keeler farm made a raid on a few stables, loaded himself with booty and
Mr Cobb's hired man
caught the fellow in the act of stealing, but not being able to take
care of him alone, ran for help. Meanwhile the thief carried off a
single harness belonging to Mr Cobb. He also carried away from the
stable of Mr Thomas a single harness and a robe; from Mr Bothwell two
robes. He was particularly choice in his selections, taking only the
Up to this writing
the thief or thieves have not been found, though considerable effort has
been made to learn their whereabouts. Sheriff Gregg and Mr Cobb rode to
the Valley yesterday but no "trace" of them could be found as their
"line" of travel had been in another direction. Our opinion is that
they will be "collared" yet.
A Fire Breaks Out
Last Night and Destroys
Holz's Harness Shop
and Hoffman's Saloon.
"Special to the
Hooper, Neb., Jan 5,
1885. - A fire originated in John Holz's Harness shop in the Jacob's
building last night (Sunday), and although it must have been burning
sometime, was not discovered until about six o'clock, when the fire was
beyond control. For nearly an hour the flames were fought without
effect, and the fire fighters turned their attention to saving the
adjoining building on the north and south. For an hour the bucket
brigade fought the flames persistently and this time with some effect.
The building on the south occupied as a saloon by Geo Hoffman was only
three feet from the fire, they saved the building occupied by W R
Christman as Harness shop. Fortunately for the surrounding buildings
which are dwellings, this building was saved. Had it burned no power
could have saved them. The loss on the saloon and harness shop
buildings, both belonging to Uede Jacob is $500; insurance $175. Holz's
loss on stock of harness is $2500; insurance $2000. Hoffman's loss on
saloon stock $800; covered by insurance. Christman's loss on stock $63;
covered by insurance. The fire brigade did admirably in saving as much
as they did under the circumstances.

Last Saturday evening
the many friends, old and young, of John Stenvers gave him a very
pleasant surprise party at his home. They met first at Arnold Romberg's
plae and proceeded from there, headed by the Common Creek Cornet Band,
to Mr Stenvers home. About fifty couples were present and all enjoyed
themselves very much, until a late hour. The young people engaged in
dancing and the older ones in social games and conversation. Mr Stenvers
will soon move to Scribner and this event was a token of the esteem in
which he and his family is held by his neighbors.
