PROGRAM: This is a repeat of the June
Migration Routes & Settlement Patterns
1807 - 1890
Below is the explanation.
BROWSE NIGHT - 26 Sep 2005 7 p.m.
Our reason for repeating this tape is
that Dr Schweitzer is rather funny in this first tape, but he also has
some very important information on the first three trails leading from
east to west and why they were placed as such . Tape 2 which will be
shown in October is the following of his first tape and he is serious in
this tape. Jeff heard Dr Schweitzer speak and it was on his second tape
and reports that it is indeed a very good tape. The tapes are one hour
Series of Accidents
Taken from the North Bend Eagle 24
Jul 1902 1:5
Three accidents, all of a somewhat
similar nature were among the local events of last Saturday. Archie
Millar was the victim of the first and most serious of the three. He
was feeding a team of mules in the barn at his place about three miles
north of town when one of them crowded him against the manger with
crushing force. When he was released from his position he was unable to
get out of the barn and fell over into the manger. His son, a small
boy, was near by and saw the situation his father was in but was unable
to render immediate assistance. Help was secured however as soon as
possible and Mr Millar was removed to the house and Dr Carr called in.
An examination showed that no bones were broken but so tightly had he
been squeezed that he suffered much pain from the effects and will be
confined to his bed probably for several days.
The second accident happened at the
Mines livery barn, also in the morning. This time Julius Mines got too
close to the heels of a fractious horse and received a swift and hard
kick on the right hand, cutting a severe gash. The hand was split open
for a short distance between the third and little fingers. A few
bandages will be necessary for several days while nature and medical
science units in restoring the hand to its former usefulness.
Not to be entirely outdone by the
accident at the Mines barn, one was soon reported at the Forman barn
across the street. While in discharge of his regular duties at the barn
Elmer Mardis was kicked on the shins by one of the horses with such
force as to be retired for a time at least from active business. He was
struck on both legs
below the knees. He was able
to be at work again Monday under more or less disadvantage.

FORBES - NELSON
The marriage of Miss Marie Forbes of
this city and Louis Nelson of Omaha took place at 10 o'clock Monday
evening at the home of Mrs Lucy Moyer, corner Eight street and Platte
avenue. The service was performed by Rev Dr F H Sanderson in the
presence of a small company of relatives and close friends. The bride
wore a becoming dress of cream silk and the rooms were attractively
decorated with roses, carnations and white asters. After the ceremony a
wedding supper was served.
The bride is a daughter of the late A
W Forbes, one of the pioneer residents of Fremont. She is a graduate of
the Fremont High School and a popular and charming young woman. The
groom formerly resided at Plainview. He is a traveling salesman for an
Omaha house and has been making his headquarters at that place. The
couple went to Omaha to reside.

Will Open New Hotel
L E Young has leased from the managers
of the Dundy estate the old Ruwe hotel and will open it permanently on
September 1st. The lease which he has signed runs for five
Mr Young hopes to get into the hotel
and have it running by the first of next month as he will have rent to
pay on a building he is now in at Council Bluffs if he remains any
longer than this month. He will run it as a dollar a day house, a
dollar and a half being charged for the better rooms. The building will
undergo a complete renovation, the office being newly fitted up and the
dining room and all the sleeping apartments and halls being newly
decorated. New connections with sewer and water will be made and the
bath and toilet arrangements will undergo a complete change. It is
possible that the walk on the north side of the hotel will be broadened,
the passage way along the cellar of the building covered, and the
railing along it torn away.
These arrangements will shut out John
Doerr from taking possession of the hotel, and running it during the
street fair for the room accommodations.

Sioux City & Pacific RR Round House
Blown Down - Narrow Escape!
About 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, a
terrible wind rain and hail storm visited our city, making total wrecks
of the round house and wind mill of the SC & P RR.
The round house was a brick structure, 30
x 60 feet, 20 feet high, walls one foot through, and the entire building
stayed and braced in a manner apparently strong enough to resist
anything but an earthquake. The building cost about $15,000.
At the time of the storm two little boys,
sons of Mr Richard Williams, were returning from a corn field near by,
and took shelter under the walls of the round house; the slate roof was
carried over their heads, but a large piece of timber struck one of the
boys, injuring him severely but not dangerously; the other child was
