Fined and Held Without Bond. Bant Daulton, who was arrested by Patrolman
Robert Warren and given a hearing in police court last Saturday, was fined
$60 and given 10 days in jail on two accounts. Evidence introduced was to
the effect that Daulton had sold two pints of whiskey to a 16 year old lad
names Sears and had also held him up and relieved him of some money. In
default of bond, Daulton was lodged in jail to await the action of the grand
jury at the May term of circuit court. He is also serving his two 10 day
W.J. BOBBITT. Former Pulaskian and Brother-in-Law of Dr. H.S. Doolin, Killed
In West. Mr. W.J. Bobbitt of Hastings, Nebraska, a former Pulaskian and
brother-in-law of Dr. H.S. Doolin, of this city, was killed in an automobile
accident near his home on March 18th. The Hastings Daily Tribune had the
following about the accident: William J. Bobbitt, former county assessor and
one of the most widely known men in Adams county, was killed under his car
late Thursday afternoon about five miles east of Hastings on the Inland road.
He was found dead under his car about 4:45 o'clock by a party of Hastings
men returning from Harvard, where they had gone to attend a funeral. In the
party were William Madgett, Harry Welch, W.T. Johnson, Lawrence Nance and Mr.
Shouse. Because no one saw the accident it can only be conjectured how it
happened. It is possible that the car was overturned by the high wind. At
about the time of the accident the Hastings College record shows that the
gale was blowing at between 40 and 50 miles an hour. That this may have
happened is corroborated by the fact that while Mr. Bobbitt was traveling
west, yet the car was headed east when found. It had been turned completely
around. It was a Ford touring car. The top was up and was undamaged.
Another theory advanced is that air was filled with flying wood, corn husks,
etc., and that some object may have struck Mr. Bobbitt's eyes, or he may have
been blinded by a cloud of dust. Either of these causes might have made him
swerve his car into the ditch. Mr. Bobbitt had lived in Adams county since
his arrival here August 14, 1886, when he purchased a farm in Wanda township,
seven miles from Kenesaw. He lived in Kansas six years before coming to
Nebraska. He taught school in Kansas after coming to that state from
Kentucky where he was born 64 years ago last December 16. Mr. and Mrs.
Bobbitt came to Adams county in a covered wagon, and Mr. Bobbitt still owned
the farm which he bought, and where his son, W.B. Bobbitt lives. From 1912
to 1916, Mr. Bobbitt was county assessor. He also had acted as ward assessor
of the Fourth ward some years, and before coming to town had been township
assessor. He was also Hail Insurance Adjustor under the State Hail Insurance
Law, and held that position at the time of his death. He took an intelligent
interest in farming, was possessed of excellent farm judgment and was
interested in the application of scientific principles to agriculture. He
is survived by his wife and nine children who are the following: James H.
Bobbitt, Omaha; Mrs. Clifford Sparling, Omaha; M.L. Bobbitt, Ragan; W.B.
Bobbitt, Kenesow; Mrs. W.J. Sahling, Stronsburg; Chester D. Bobbitt, Chicago;
Mrs. August Risser, Dallas, Ore.; and Huleh and Howard Bobbitt who live in
Arrested Here Alvin H. Payne (alias Dykes) Lodged in Somerset Jail. Married
Here. Alvin H. Payne, alias Alvin H. Dykes, who is reported to have driven a
Dodge car, not his own, out of the State of California, was arrested at
Ferguson last Saturday by Deputy Sheriff Ed Thurman, assisted by Patrolman
Silas West, and lodged behind the bars of the Pulaski County jail. The first
information came to officials here last November from an automobile concern
at Los Angeles, California, who gave Sheriff Weddle a full description of the
party, and stated that he had been in Pulaski County about two years ago as
an oil promoter and while here married Grace Dykes, age 21, daughter of
Fannie Dykes, at Hail, this county. He is about 33 years of age, 5 feet 10
inches high and weighs about 150 pounds. Upon receiving this information the
case was turned over to Deputy Sheriff Ed Thurman who began an investigation.
Payne was traced to Akron, Ohio, and last Wednesday information was received
by Thurman that he was en route to Somerset, Ky., and to look out for him.
He was placed under arrest while in company with his wife at Ferguson.
Information received here is to the effect that Payne purchased a Dodge car
from the Pacific Coast Auto Co., paid $100 down and owed $1,150.00 and
undertook to get away with the car, and did sell the car at Kansas City, Mo.,
and it is supposed that he and his wife came here by rail. Payne would make
no statement other than his home was in Cleveland, Ohio, and also admitted
that he had been in California. He asked officials to find out what the
company would take to settle the account. Sheriff of Los Angeles will likely
arrive today to take him back to answer the charge of getting away with and
selling property other than his own. Deputy Sheriff Thurman and Patrolman
West are to be commended upon their success in apprehending their man. Mr.
Thurman has possibly done more to bring fugitives from other states to
justice than anyone in Pulaski county. During the seven years he has served
as deputy sheriff he has brought thirty fugitives at large from this and
other states to justice.

Car Turns Over. A Ford car driven by Mr. V.H. Bryant, of Eubank, turned
over at the foot of Harvey Hill last Saturday afternoon. There were six
people in the car but none were injured. The car stopped on the hill and the
brakes refused to work and begun to back. The result was a turn over.
Hail. Jack Hail, the seventeen year old son of Steve Hail, died at home at
Ferguson last (remainder missing).
Band to Stearns. The Somerset Municipal Band has renewed activities and left
yesterday for Stearns on their first 1920 engagement at a miners' celebration
which was held at Stearns yesterday. The band was in charge of Director
Chas. Owens and is composed mostly of the membership of last year. The band
hopes to be able to cooperate with the citizens and business men of the city
and have as good or better band that they had last year. Unless the business
men cooperate and give the band the proper encouragement it is very likely
they will not be able to do very much this season.
The Passing of Mrs. D.W. Scott. When Fannie Smith Scott passed away early
last Friday morning, a gentle and loving spirit went home to God. Mrs. Scott
lost her mother when quite a little girl, but had the good fortune to be
cared for and carefully nurtured by an older sister. Upon graduation from
the Midway school, a capable, Christian young woman, she entered the teaching
profession and so accepted the challenge of life. In course of time she
became the devoted wife of Delaware W. Scott, minister of the Gospel, and was
a help mate for him in every way. Their last years together were spent in
Somerset, Ky., where they were greatly beloved, and rightly so, for side by
side they served their people and their Lord up to the limit of their
abilities, and possibly beyond the limits of her strength. After a severe
operation in Louisville hospital, she lingered several days, and then her
brave spirit took its flight. She died a beautiful death, smiling herself
away into the glory land. Her body was taken to the Parkland Church where
she and her husband had labored for five happy years, and there many
sorrowing friends gathered to pay their last tributes of love. The service
was conducted by Neal K. McGowan, President R.H. Crossfield and Horace
Kingsbury. Later the body was removed to Hardinsburg, Mrs. Scott's
birthplace, and with becoming ceremonies was laid to rest. Bro. Scott is
bearing his sorrow bravely, leaning hard on the precious promises of God's
Word, and feeling that his dear wife's spirit is drawing him nearer and
nearer to Christ. The wealth of beautiful flowers, the very many expressions
of heartfelt sympathy, and the loving loyalty of the Somerset church, have
helped him greatly, and now looking unto Jesus for strength, he is going
forward to accomplish his course and his ministry. Horace Kingsbury, in The
In Memory of Little Susie Raney. On the fifth day of March the death angel
came into the home of Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Raney and claimed as his victim
Susie, their little nine year old daughter. Susie took sick on Monday, March
1st with appendicitis and was taken to the hospital at Somerset Wednesday and
underwent an operation Thursday morning. Everyone thought she was getting
along fine, but at 8 o'clock death came and bore her spirit away. When the
message came over the phone to Shopville neighborhood, "Susie is dead," oh!
How many hearts were made sad, and how many tears were shed over the loss of
little Susie and in sympathy for the heart broken family. It will be
remembered that three years ago last Fall, Mr. and Mrs. Raney took their
little son, Bee, to the hospital with the same disease and death claimed him
while there. Susie was the only little one in their home. Oh! How hard it
is for us to say, Lord they will not ours be done, yet we know He doeth all
things well, and that all things work together for good to them who love and
serve Him. Besides father and mother, there is one sister, Mrs. Zula Bales,
and one brother, Robert Raney, an aged grandmother and other near and dear
relatives and friends to mourn the loss of little Susie. But to the loved
ones we will say, don't grieve any more than you can help. Remember your
loss is her gain, for she has gained a home in Heaven. Though she can never
come to you again, yet by following in the footsteps of our dear Master, you
can go to her. Her little hands are beckoning to papa, mama, sister and
brother to come, and when the angel of death comes to take you from this
world of sin and sorrow, little Susie will be at the Pearly Gate to welcome
you into a home not made with hands, a home where parting is not known and no
farewell tears are shed. Susie was a bright child and her sweet disposition
had won the love of all who knew her. She will be sadly missed by her little
school mates. Her body was laid to rest in Flat Lick cemetery. "Sleep on in
they beauty, Thou sweet angel child, By Sorrow unblighted, By sin undefiled,
Like the dove in the ark, Thou has flown to the rest, From this wild sea of
strife, To the home of the blest" A friend.
