City and County:
Mr. A. A. Smith has severed his connection as salesman for C. V. York
And no longer in the latter's employ.

Home in Logan for about a week but will be at his old stand in a few days.

John Carter the west side butcher has a big chunk of ice in front of his
Shop that is a splendid advertisement for his business. This piece of
Ice is 17 inches thick and is as transparent as glass. You can even
Read news print readily thro the 17 inch depth. Mr. Carter has 250
Tons just like the sample cake.
On Saturday, Feb. 25th, Professor C. Fischer Tucker will give his last
Pupils recital in Glenwood. His work in Omaha and Plattsmouth has
So increased that he finds it impossible to devote enough time to Glenwood.
Frank Reels living two and one half miles south of town had his knee
Cap knocked loose Tuesday morning. He was butchering a hog at the
Time and in the course of his labors he fell and struck his knee against
A projecting stick which loosened the cap. His friends brought the
Injured man to Glenwood and a physician dressed the injury which
As might be supposed is quite serious one.
In conversation with Mr. A. Schappel Glenwood's pioneer weather
Observer he said the coldest weather we have had this winter was
On last Thursday and last Saturday and that the thermometer registered
32 degrees below zero on those two days. For 18 consecutive days
Mr. Schappel said the mercury went below zero every day which
Is an unprecedented record in his 50 years experience in observing the
Ora Stout came back from Omaha Saturday where he went several weeks
Ago to have his eyes treated by Dr. Gifford. When he left home his eyes
Were in very bad shape. He was entirely blind in one eye while the other
Was in but little better shape. But his eyes are as good as ever. He has
Gained the entire sight of the eye which was effected most while the other
Eye is all right aside from being a triffle inflamed. Much credit is due
The business men of Glenwood through whose efforts and contributions
He was enabled to go to Omaha.
Mr. O. B. Byers Glenwood's florist sustained a serious misfortune last
Thursday in the loss of all the plants which he had in his green house.
He had built a fire in his furnace as usual and piled it high with fuel but
Unluckily the wood happended to be water elm and in consequence
Generated little or no heat, so when the mercury dropped down to its
Lowest point the plants went glimmering. The loss Mr. Byers estimates
At $200 which is very conservative putting of it. Of course to some men
This would not be a very large amount of money to lose, but it means to
Much to a man in Mr. Byers circumstances.
Mr. F. A. Weatherhead has lost the Robinson gold medal. Yesterday
Morning the shoot between him and Mr. Thos. Hall one of the crack gun
Club shootists took place and the result was a victory for Mr. Hall.
They shot 15 live pigeons and when the contest was ended it was found
That Mr. Weatherhead had killed 13 birds and Mr. Hall 14 so the latter
Took the medal. The winner was immediately challenged by Dr. F. E. Donelan
The shoot comes off today to see whether Mr. Hall will keep this trophy or
A number of Mills county people have been taking advantage of the low price
Of farming land in Harrison county, to invest their surplus earnings in
farms up there.
Ross Summers of White Cloud township bought a farm consisiting of 266 acres
A distance from Woodbine while Anton Dickersbach bought a similar sized farm
Near the same town. Mr. Dickersbach bought this last place last Thursday
Purchased another farm larger that the last about a week before. The
Paid per acre for these three farms was about $27.50 Similar land to Mills
Would have cost far more money.

Financial tribulation has once more overtaken our old friend Mr. R. H.
As will be noticed by the publication elsewhere of a sheriff's sale of his
Appointed for Saturday, Feb. 25. The party who had the execution issued was
Celia A. Newman and the debt was a small one of $153.95. We trust that Mr.

Thos. A. Davis an old time resident of Glenwood was brought back for
Here last Saturday morning, having died in Council Bluffs the day before.
Mr. Davis was a prominent citizen in these parts years ago and was one of
First to stimulate an interest in fruit growing. He was a partner of L. A.
For a long time and sold thousands of apple trees and other nursery stock to
People of this locality. He formerly resided on the farm now owned by W. F.
Laraway and it was of him indeed that Mr. Laraway purchased the place. For
The past six years, Mr. Davis has been paralyzed and death came as a
Relief to his sufferings. The funeral services were held at the Methodist
Rev. A. T. Jeffrey officiating.
J. H. Laugh of Ottumwa was in Glenwood Thursday and Friday to see his
Art Laugh now confined in the county jail on the charge of robbin L. A.
Residence north of Hastings. This Laugh seems like a pretty decent fellow.
He bade his brother good bye and left Friday for home. We might add that in
This connection that Art Laugh finally confessed to his identity. He
Maintained that he was not Art Laugh at all but Harry Hall. But he was
Positively identified by so many Malvern people that he finally saw it
Attempt to keep up the pretense further so acknowledged his name a few days

I am trying to identify the location of a boarding house in Missouri Valley that was run by Francis and Margaret Nason Mohatt in the 1880's and 90's. Does anyone have any knowledge of it? I have a map of Missouri Valley, ca. 1883, locating a boarding house on the west side of 3rd Street, just south of Erie. Could this be the one? Any information would be appreciated.

Hello, I have been searching for information on the William Clark and
Margaret McKelvy Clark family. Their children were:
David (killed in the Civil War)
They settled in Magnolia, but Joseph went to Montana, Jenny married
Hugh Neely, Mary was reportedly killed by her husband when he hit her
with an iron. Rumor has it that Mary's brothers took Mary's husband
into the sand hills, killed him, and then fled. Interesting story.
Does anyone have a connection or knows any information. Donna
