BROWSE NITE: 23 February 20047 p.m.

We had a very interesting program presented by Nellie Snell. This was about the conference held at Houston TX. Nellie and Margie Sobotka both attended, and each went to various speakers programs. She had several books on Czech Fairy Tales and Claire took the opportunity to borrow two of them and read their versions of fairy tales. They are very different than our fairy tale books, and both books with the stories always had a devil in it, along with a moral to each story — most interesting.

WHO left their jacket behind in November. Claire has a
men’s navy blue jacket x-large that is trimmed In yellow and white stripes.

Photographer Thotlessly Destroyed Valuable Negatives

Pictures of Early-Day Scenes Including Flood of 1881 Went
Into Platte Channel

Valuable oid negatives of flood disasters in Fremont years
ago, including fifty or more views taken by A C Hull during
the high water times of 1881, when the Platte river channel
flowed down Military avenue, lay for years in a box with other
negatives at the studio on Main street, now conducted by W
P Fritz. Ten years ago Mr Fritz had the whole lot hauled
down to the river and dumped into it. He needed the space
and did not know that interesting flood pictures and pictures
of early-day scenes in Fremont were included in the lot.
    Some photographs taken from a half dozen of these old
negatives have come to light in a peculiar manner. William
Sundeli bot a washstand the other day and he found a bundle
of old. photographs in the bottom. Some of the old flood
photos were among them. One of them shows Patrick
Hanion, now deceased, floating down Main street in a raft.
Another shows boats being used on Military avenue where
the water, evidently, was two feet deep.

Injury After Several Months Brot Him Whining to the Door of
His Old Friend.

    A bird dog which Walter Pederson of Pederson Bros cared
for several months ago when it had a sore paw returned to
the Pederson shop on Main street this morning and whined
piteously at Mr Pederson’s feet, while it held up another
injured limb that evidently had been cut by some sharp
instrument. Sympathizing with the sensible beast that had
remembered where it got relief in an instance of previous
trouble, Mr Pederson procured medicine and bandages again
this morning, and bound up its wound to be subsequently
half smothered with caninal signs of appreciation in the
shape of tongue-lapping and tail-wagging.
    The dog belongs to William Martin and is a particularly
bright specimen of a particularly bright breed. Mr Pederson
bandaged up a sore paw for it several months ago, one day
when Mr Martin dropt Into the shop. The dog had taken the
pains to pay Mr Pederson a few calls since the first incident.
This morning it appeared at the door and scratched
vigorously. When it was let In, it held up a bleeding paw and
whined piteously up at the proprietor of the place who had
helped it before.
