and ways to find your soldier who served during this War.
Browse nite 23 Oct
We had a nice turnout
for Our September program, held at Midland Lutheran College. Everyone
enjoyed the information brought to us from Mike J Smith, the new
Director & CEO of the Nebraska State Historical society.
Be sure to bring any
questions you have regarding finding the records of men serving in the
Civil War. I am sure that Merle can answer them, or point you to where
they can be found.
The scrapbook albums
of obituaries are almost complete. At the time of this writing only
one additional book has to be completed. It has been enjoyable to find
these new articles. I do believe they are longer than what you find in
our latest newspapers. To date there are three shoeboxes full. What is
so nice about these albums, they were indexed! Copies of the indexes
were made and will be a part of the file boxes of obituaries. It
appears that the person making the albums kept those who died here in
Fremont, for I do not find any out of town obituaries. Now this is just
a guess on my part, but surely someone out of town also passed away???
D A Boggs threshed
some of the best wheat that has been raised in this section of the
county this week, averaging 20 bushels to the acre.
All day long until
the sun is hid behind the hills and farmers
wear a smile that has
not been seen for years as the fruit of their labor is measured, bushel
after bushel. It is a busy time now, some are building barns, some
digging potatoes, which are a sorry crop, and some are fixing sheds to
protect their cattle from the cold wintry blasts and for which we feel
thankful as they are so much more thought of and better attended to than
several years ago.

Dodge County's Court
House Formally Dedicated.
afternoon a large crowd gathered at the new building to listen to the
addresses and take part in the ceremonies.
Hon. E F Gray
delivered an eloquent address. He gave a brief history of Dodge county,
its early courts and settlements. The farmers of the east had come and
by their indomitable industry and perseverance had converted the wild
prairies into productive farms and prosperous cities.
He eulogized the
enterprise of a county that had constructed so beautiful and magnificent
a court house, and commended the county officers who had so faithfully
performed their duties and fulfilled the trust reposed in them. He gave
a little history of architecture, and noted that of the most successful
Spoke of American
monuments and American institutions. Eulogized American patriotism but
characterized the monuments as the most enduring and suggestive of all
our institutions. In coming down to the court house he considered this
beauty and magnificence of the building as an index to the enterprise,
intelligence and thrift of the people.
His speech was a
praiseworthy effort and was well received.
moved that a vote of thanks be tendered Hon E F Gray for his able
address which was carried, and the assembly dismissed.

The railroad section
house had a narrow escape from fire the past week. In fact the whole
town seemed threatened by the destructive element. The timely
interference of the section gang prevented a serious conflagration. The
fire originated from the sparks of a passing engine.
and PURPLE CANE news
have located the site for their new church on the southwest corner of
the Wilson farm, now owned by Ed Johnson sr, one mile east of Mr
Johnson's and on the North Bend road.

Schuyler was the
scene of a conflagration Saturday night that resulted disastrously
to numerous persons. A livery barn was totally burned down,
consuming twelve head of horses, a number of buggies, harness and
general livery property. Three of the horses and buggies were the
property of Methodist ministers who were attending the conference.
The Palace hotel was also badly damaged. The financial loss will
run into many hundred of dollars with only partial insurance.
Whether the fire was started accidentally or was the work of an
incendiary is knot known, but from past experience is more likely
the work of incendiarism. There will be a reckoning with the fire
bugs in Schuyler some of these days that will be a severe and just
