Wonderful Is the span of years
of this ancestor of Mr. Monk's. Few
persons born since 18GO have over
Seen a soldier of the Revolutionary
war. Mr. Monk , was horn over 50
years ago and ho still has a recol
lection of his great grand father.
When a boy of six or seven years
ho saw him In Herklmer , N. Y. ,
and the mental picture of the old
man has never faded Zrom his mem
James Russell Lowell , In one of
his essays , tells how plentiful these
veterans were In his boyhood , and
how well-remembered among the
people were the everyday Incidents
which they related of that struggle
In which Washington , Lafayette ,
r < ! t.\hr , Green , Starke , Marlon ,
Sumter , Lee and others were hcros.
Webster , when the corner stone of
ho Bunker Hill monument was dedl
cated , just half a century after the
battle , addressed the survivors of
.he Revolution who were the guests
of honor there as : "Venerable men ;
you have come down to us from a
former generation. "

for Washington and Grant , nnd for
nest of the presidents between them
le saw this nation pass through
every war'-yet recorded in < lts nls
tory , but one.
The photograph from which the
accompanying picture of Mr. Bake-
nan was made , Is a prized posses
sion of his descendants They
vould about as soon part with their
ionic roofs as the photo. It was
aken when the subject was 104
years old and he walked four miles
o Lincoln , N. Y. , to sit for It.
Mr. Bakeman's death occurred In
Schoharie county , N. Y. His wife
lied at the ago of 104. His descend
ants are not clear as to his rovolu-
lonary record , but are of the * opin-
on that he served In a new York
regiment. The facts are now being

A. B. Smith who made such a
sensational get-away Irtst Thursday
morning , after the nllci d lifting of
a gold watch and chain and twenty-
one dollars in cash from LoulH
Kaiser and L. J. Schroh , at the Ro-
neau hotel , got his at the prelimin
ary hearing Thursday afternoon ,
when Judge Holcomb passed the cas
up'to the next term of the district
court. It wlH4ho remembered that
Smith had been doing some work
at the hotel and was thoroughly fa
miliar with the place. Thursday
night Mosses Kaiser and Schorb
came In on a late train and were
shown to their beds by smith , whom
It Is alleged , waited until he though
they wore asleep and then quietly
made away with what cash and val
uables ho could find. The alarm
was given ohortly after Smith had
hired Fred Ream to take htm to
Oconto In'an automobile. Proprie
tor I. A. Roneau , Chief Towsloy and
Sheriff Kennedy Immediately got
busy and worked the telephone wire
for all there was In It. The romilt.
was that the marshal of Oconto mot
the culprit with open arms and gave
him a pressing invitation to return
to Broken Bow , which Invitation wa
acted upon without comment. In
the afternoon Shilth wns taken be
fore County Judge Holcomb , who ,
at the request af Judge Dean , the
defendants attornty , continued the
hearing until Monday , fixing bonds
at $500. Chief Towsloy then took
charge of the prisoner and , bccauuo
of the chilly winds that chased themselves
solves through the lattice work of
the city cage , looked after him per
sonally for several days. Monday's
hearing was .continued until Tues
day , at which time the slate proved
to the court's satisfaction that Smith
had violated the rules of the game
by taking that which did not belong
to him. 'lie was accordingly bound
over to the district court In the sum
of $500. Later on , however , his
honor reduced the amount to $300 ,
In order , If possible , to nave the
county the expense of paying for an
other boarder at the Grand Island
wickiup. Smith being unable to fur
nlsh the bonds , Sheriff Kennedy
landed him In Orand Island Tues
day night of last week.
