Almost a Collision
Having narrowly escaped a collision
of my buggy with an automobile
last Sunday afternoon I feel dis
posed to publish a thought in connec
tion with the incident Had this co
lision occurred the result probably
would have been disastrous possibly
I was driving south of the railroaJ
on Magnolia street ascending the
slope in front of the residence of Mr
John Young Hearing the whistle of
an automobile I turned my horse froi
the middle of the street to the right
leaving ample space on my left for
the auto to pass But instead of
taking the left that vehicle was driven
to my right into the very narrow
space between me and the sidewalk
I was still going further to the right
when I saw the auto spinning by me
at a rapid rate leaving me hardly
time to pull my horse to the left suf
ficiently to escape be ng run into in a
way that would undoubtedly have re
sulted in a frightful catastrophe to
me or my daughter or her infant
child or possibly all of us
Now I have Inquired of several city
oifleials attorneys and civilians to
learn the rule governing the passing
of vehicles in the street The result
of my inquiry leads me to believe
there is no rule for those traveling in
the same direction We all know the
rule when vehicles meei Keep to
the right as the law directs
This would seem to he also the
riile for the foremost vehicle Be
cause this driver thus moving would
leave the road properly open for any
vehlcle that might chance to he com
ing the other way Meanwhile the
driver in the hindermost vehicle is
able to see the foiemost one has gone
to the right leaving him a clear space
on th6 left and if any other vehicle
is seen coming the other way the
hindermost driver can check his
speed remain in the rear of him in
front till the meeting conveyance is
past and thus avoid all confusion and
all danger
From a disregard of this apparently
just and simple nile this chauffeur
missed by perhaps less than one foot
running into my wheels and at a
speed that would undoubtedly liave
been fearful in its results My object
in making public this incident is not
to express any illfeeling but to call
attention to a hiatter that serously
needs regulation Let our city coun
cil pass an ordinance lequiriug auto
mobiles to pass on a certain side
either to the right or to the left Then
the publc can feel that if they veer
to the side indicated they will not be
run into unless it be done by some
one reckless of all danger to the lives
of others on the highway

Herald Special
Tecumseh Neb July 20 Nothing
has ever put the curiosity of the citi
zens of Tecumseh under a greater
stran than the mystery of old
Scotch Wilsons missing heir which
is to be solved by an unusual test be
fore Judge Livingston of the probate
court tomorrow The claimant who
asserts that he is John Wilson Jr
the son of old Scotch Wilson will
tomorrow be given an opportunity to
prove his identity and to establish his
claim to the 30000 which old Wilson
left to his missing son provided he
should turn up within five years after
the death of the testator and prove
his claim by answering to the satis
faction of the court ten questions
which old Wilson had written down
and sealed and deposited in a safety
deposit vault
Old Scotch Wilson died about
five years ago and ever since that
time the mysterious package in the
safety deposit vault kept the curiosity
of the citizens at a high pitch It is
safe to say there were not two resi
dents who held the same theory con
cerning the nature and purport of the
ten questions Every possibility was
discussed from every imaginable point
of view and for five years the mystery
of the test questions formed the all
absorbing topic of conversation and
contention in Tecumseh
The general interest in the puzzle
increased tremendously when a few
weeks ago a man appeared in this
city who claimed to be John Wilson
Jr the missing heir of old Scotch
Wilson He stated in reply to ques
tons that he had lived in Houston
Texas for more than twenty years
under the name of Alonzo Wilson and
that he had assumed that name to
make it impossible or at least more
difficult for his father to find him
He is an attorney and alto a civil en
gineerand has worked fcr the South
ern Pacific railroad for many years
Hi j fticrTiad he ard of his fathers
deatrr about two years ago but did
not wish to return to claim the inheri
tance waiting for him But his wife
and daughter had finally persuaded
him to claim the estate for their sake
and he had consented to come to
Tecumseh and establish his identity
through the prescribed test
Old Scotch Wilson the testator
was one of the oldest settlers in this
locality He owned a fine farm and
by shrewd investments accumulated a
considerable rortune He was a man
of many prejudices stubborn and in
tolerant and frequently quarreled with
the members of his family and his
neighbors It was about thirtysix
years ago that the old man had a par
ticualrly severe quarrel with his son
John Wilson Jr and drove the equal
ly stubborn boy out of the house The
boy left Tecumseh and was never
seen or heard of since that time One
year later the old man relented and
began to regret having driven his only
son into the world He made strenu
ous efforts to find a trace of his son
and spent the greater part of his for
tune in this search But the search
remained fruitless and the old man
died without having found a trace of
his son Shortly before his death the
old man made a will in which he pro
vided after his own style for the pos
s ibility of his sons return He de
posited 30000 the bulk of his for
tune in the Tecumseh bank to be
held in trust for his son for five
years ending July 21 1910 The old
man realizing the danger that an 1m
poster might claim the fortune wrote
down ten questions and the answers
to them sealed them securely and en
trusted them to the executor of the
estate A C Sullivan with the provi
sion that the money should not he
paid to any claimant who did not an
swer these ten questions to the satis
faction of the judge of the probate
court In case no claimant should
appear and answer the questions be
fore the expiration of the five years
the money is to go to the nephews
of the testator
