Re- %M: mains Reach Denison To-morrow "1 We gre&tl.t regret to chronicle in •this isBue the death from age and in firmities of the well-known and highly respected pioneer Mr. L. B. Nixon Mr. Nixon died on Tuesday July 4t,h at the home of hie daughter Mrs. E. T. Shirtcliff at Lowmoor ranch, Lacomte Alberta. Owing to the precautioi necessary and the long distance to ce traveled it is impossible to tell just when the funeral cortege will reach Denison, thouph it ie expected to reach here to-morrow afternoon. Mr. Nixon was bom in the state of Indiana Feb. 12, 1823. being in his eighty-third year at the time of hie death. At. a young man he moved to Illinois, and then, impelled by the pio neer spirit he came to Iowa in 1S44 living in Lyons and Clinton Iowa, for many years. In 1848 he was married to Miss Mary Ann Allbrigbt and it was the death of hie loving wife after more than fifty years of happy wedded life that induced the decline from which Mr. Nixon died. He came Crawford county in 1873 and lived on his farm north of Penison until twelve years 3go when be came to this city. ..During his residence here he was knowh ana loved a= a kindly spirited man, a man of intelligence and much wisdom of the belter sort. He was ^republican capdid&te fpr alderman in tbe second ward of this city when that ward was democratic and he was beat en by a party vote. His candidacy served to show, however, that he was held in thte highest eBteem by all who knew him. Since the death of his wife, Mr. Nixon lived with his child ren, spending a portion of his time in Kansas, South Dakota and in Canada. Mr. and Mrs. Nixon were the par ents of four children, three of whom survive. They are Mrs. E. T. Shirt cliff of Lacombe, Alberta, Mrs. R. Hall of Armour, S. D., and Mr. T. Nixon, now of Armour, bat for many years one of our most highly respected farmers and citizens. Mr. Nixon was a life-long and devout Methodist. He was a model citizen iu every respect. Of proverbial honesty and integrity, a loving and affectionate father and husband and an intelligent and well-read man. He was of the highest type of those pioneers, who built up the west and made it what it is today. We sincerely sympathize •with his loved ones in their bereave ment, but know that the knowledge of their father's well-spent life will be of greatest comfort to them. MRS. LUCY GRIFFIN DEAD. After a Prolonged And Painful Illness Mrs. Lucy Griffin Succombs to the Grim Reaper. On Sunday July ninth occurred the death of Mrs. Lucy Grifiin, a woman of high character and one who is mourn ed by a wide circle of friends and relatives. The cause of her death was -cancer of the stomach and her illness "was along and exceedingly pa'.nful one She bore her suffering with the great est fortitude but death came to her as a relief from agony and suffering. Mrs. Griffin was sixty-one years of age at the time of her death. She was :born in County Clare, Ireland, and came to this country in 1861. She was married while quite yoxiug to Mr. John Conway who died thirty-three years ago. Tney had one son Michael Con way of this city who survives h'e mother. Fifteen years ago she was married to Mr. Tbo6 Griffin Sr. who was one of the best known of the old residents of the county and who de parted this life a number of years ag". Mrs. Griffin came to this county in 1881, and her circle of friends was a large one. Sbe was known for her kind-heartedness and her Christian fci .Dfulness and ber fidelity toail thots who came under her love and care. Besides her sou she leaves two broth ers, Tbonius and Micbeai Kine both of Buck Grove a.nd three ri.stert, Mrt. Ellen Gorman of Buck Grove, Mrs. Mary Muhonev of K-uwoodl and Mrs. John Houston of Dunkirk, New York. The funu-al si rvk-es were held at Saint, Rose of Lima's church, I-Lev. Father M. Farreily officiating, and intirrmtjnt wa? made in the old Cath olic cemetery. THE REVIEW WOU'C extend its sincere condolences to ihe loved ones of the deceased in this their great bereavement, CROP BULLETIN. The daily average temperature of the j*a ek was 4 to 0 degrees- below nor mal, at the rainfall was so. h^t inec cess of present needs. Conoitions were more favorable for field wcrii tbe latter half of the week, and some progress has been made in cultivating late planted corn, and in haymaking and cutting win ter wheat, 'rye, bariey and early oatr. There has been considerable damage to clover that was cut the preceding weik but there is a large acreage yet to be cut, and, with fair weather, a full average hay crop will be harvested. In the southern districts harvesting early oats and fall rye and wheat is in progress There are but few reports of damage to wheat and oats by rust. Except on low. wet soils the general condition of the corn crop is fair ly good. In respect to height, stand and cleanliness' it is better than the condition reported on the corresponding date last year. All the minor field crcps are doing very well. In the southern section the apple crop is very poor, especially late keeping varieties. rJwm '. A: :V\-.^!' MPS LAND MANY TROOPS Twelve Thousand Men Are Now the Island of Sakhalin. Tokio, July ]2.—The navy depart ment has received the following from Admiral Kataoka: "Two cruisers and four torpedo boats left Korasakorsk on July 10, with soldiers on board for the purpose ©f landing and occupying Cape No toro. After same bombardment the place was taken. The lighthouse and buildings were left undestroyed. Four prisoners were taken." Cape Notoro is the most southerly point of Sakhalin island, on La Perouse straits, directly facing Cape Soya, on the Japanese coast. It com mands the straits. The Japanese have already landed over 12,000 troops at Korasakorsk, isl and of Sakhalin. Prefect of Police Assassinated. Moscow, July 12.—Major General Count Shouvaloff, prelect of police here, and formerly attached to the ministry of the interior, -was assassi nated while receiving petitions. One of the petitioners drew a revolvei and fired five times at the prefect, •who fell dead. The assassin was ai rested. The assassin, who was dressed as a peasant, has net yet been identi fied. He was recently arrested as a political suspect, but escaped from the police station before bis examination. Takahira to Visit Oyster Bay. Washington, July 12.—By appoint ment Kogoro Takahira, the Japanese minister, will call on the president at Oyster Bay next Friday for a confer ence regarding the pcact negotiations. The Japanese mission is expected tc reach New York about the last oi July. Nothing more is heard here oi China's request to be represented at the* conference. In diplomatic quar ters sympathetic to Japan it is de clared that China's request was made at the instance of Russia. Fears of Another Mutiny. Kustenji, Roumania, July 12.—The Russian squadron seems to be delay ing here, owing to the l'ear that an other mutiny will break out should the vessels put to sea. The fact that fifty-five sailors from the Kniaz Po temkine, who surrendered, have been imprisoned on board the different ves sels of the squadron awaiting trial for rebellion, has caused intense indigna tion among the crews and as a conse quence there are fears el another mu tiny. Miss Cora Brown went to Audubon. Iowa, today. Mr. Geo. Naeve is paying Charter Oak a visit today, Attorney P. W. Harding left today for davenport on a business mission Mr. John Pump and daughter] Mrs. Freda Kirchoff, left today for Chica go, where Mrs. Kirchoff resides. Clyde Cochran returned to his work at Omaha on Saturday last after a pleasant visit with Denison friends. Mr. Martin Burke and his son, Mar tin Burke, Jr., left today for a sight seeing trip to Denver and other Colo rado points. Mr. Roy Wiblisbauser has severed his connection with the Johnson book store and is now employed with the Fairmount Creamery. Patriotism is not deid sordid commer cialism has not mastered at least one of the great men of this country James Dill, corporation lawyer of New Jersey with a practice which nets hi-a three tnousand dollars a year. This is paral el'.ed tn the case of Mr. Koot, who re linquishes an income of several hundred thousand dollars a year to become secre tary of state. It is pleasing to note there are men who place duty and honor abov money considerations. Their views a saner and grander than any other, and when we seriously reflect upon the mat ter we can only pity those who have sur rendered to avarice. The Kniaz Potemkine (never mind tb pronunciation) is determined to carry out its little program of sedition unto grim death. The crew of that ship know ful well that it is a matter of choice between death in battle wi'.b the rest oi the fleet and death by official execution. This in cident present: a feature as dramaiic and sensational as any th it ever lent interest to legend or story. ORIGINAL NOTICE. In The District Court of Iowa in and For Crawford Couutv.
