"Butch" Noble Coyt"Butch" Noble, 74, of Repub- lic, Karl., died last Sunday at his home in Republic. Butch was born Sept. 11, 1942, in Belleville, the son of Dr. Coyt and Isabel (Hain) Noble. He at- tended public school in Repub- lic and graduated from Republic High School with 't,e Class of 1960. He served his country in the National Guard and was drafted into the Army later, when the family started showing horses, Joan would often go with her sisters and her expertise was keeping the show tally for that day on each youth exhibitor. Joan took great pride in her horses, caring for them and en- joying them through the years. She was so thoughtful. Joan always had great snacks and lots of ice cream. She took her sisters more than once to get flu shots; and her sister, Patricia, hated shots. For some reason she had a tendency to faint and Joan felt so sorry for her one of those times, that she took them to see Tarzan at the Superior theatre. Another time she purchased tickets to go see the Ice Capades in Lincoln, Neb., and they all rode the bus. Joan had one of the most beautiful and strong voices that anyone had ever heard. She could sing up and down the scale so easily. As a little girl along with her sister, Joyce, they would sing all the way through life. They began singing together at the Webber Meth- odist Church when they were three and five years old. Fishing was her main hobby and she garnered quite a reputa- tion for acquired skills.

The Kinyoun-Angle pond in Switzer's Gap was nearing comple- tion. The Blue-Bird Club had an all-day meeting at the home of Mrs. Krohler Nelson. October 1, 1936 The Montrose bank closed and the business taken over by the First Na- tional Bank in Mankato. This was the second Jewell County bank to close in 1936. Levi Zentz found a strange bull had broken into his pasture and attacked one of his horses, wounding it so badly it died. Mr. Zentz took great pride in his horses and aside from the loss of valuable work horse, he felt the loss of a pet. An auto driven by Jim Mullens of Mankato crashed into the rear of a gasoline transport truck parked in the block west of the port of entry, wreck- ing the car, which also caught fire but was put out before the fire department arrived and before the transport caught fire, This could have been a serious fire for there were eight or 10 gasoline transports parked in a row. Some of the transport drivers were in bed and it would have been impossible to move the trucks had the fire gotten under- way. Many of the trucks were parked in Mankato because of the rain. October 8, 1936 In the race for the office of United States president, the polls were show- ing Kansas Governor AlfLandon, lead- ing Franklin Roosevelt with 56.9 per- cent of the popular vote. (We now know the polls failed to correctly pre- dict the election and Roosevelt was elected to four terms.) Several Jewell County farmers had leased their land to oil prospectors. The Jewell County population was 13,183. A rose favors the near few but a skunk treats the entire town. The farmers of Highland Township were getting tired of having their poul- try houses raided by chicken thieves and put out a phone call for a meeting at the usual voting place. There they organized and anti-chicken thief asso- ciation. Twenty-two farmers were present for the meeting. J. M. Smith was elected president, Glen Grout, sec- retary, and E. A. Weaver, treasurer. Other townships were invited to join and help stop the stealing of poultry. A. W. Jordan's home at Esbon was destroyed by fire. The fire started in the wash house. The only water avail- able to fight the fire was contained in two tubs stored in the burning build- Ill l=:'ea k I:::'entali "AT THE PEAK OF PATIENT COMFOlrI" AND CARE" Stephanie Svoboda D.D.S 136 E 4th Street Superior, Neb. www.roeh ing.

Smith had the misfortune to wreck her auto coming from Formoso with a group of women from Mankato. They had attended a Repub- lican Women' s meeting.

The story that Mankato had with- drawn the suit against the commis- sioners with regard to building the north-south highway was incorrect. There was a string tied to the with- drawal which left the suit still pending. The farmers had enough Russian thistles to bum to keep them busy for a long time. Jack Moore reported having eaten his first mess of new potatoes from his second crop. A postal inspector stopped the rural mail carriers from taking the evening mail from Jeweil to Mankato. The car- riers had been taking unpaid turns tak- ing the mail to where it connected with a Rock Island train.

After 10 days of work, the drillers were down between 200 and 300 feet. The Intertype typesetting machine at the Esbon Times office went on strike before all the type for the week's edition was corrected so the Times editor knowingly printed errors. The first hard frost of the season came on Oct. 23. Little Billy Bob Spiegel drank some kerosene and was a sick little boy. September 3, 1926 A set of false teeth had been found. Readers were told they could have the teeth by producing a mouth to fit the teeth and paying for the newspaper advertisement.

November 6, 1896 Bob White's corn was making 56 bushels to the acre. Methodists at Randall were making plans to build a church building. Two boys begging for food andan old man were seen loafing around Randall. After being well-fed they were observed going north out of town. The next day a vacant farm house was found torn up and the cistern partially filled with old machinery. The trio was sus- pected and found near Montrose.

It played a significant role in the 1893 Cherokee Strip Land Rush into Indian Territory, now Okla- homa. In 1990, the community of Caldwell began a three-year process to prepare for the centennial of the land rush. Karen stepped in to help with this celebration and learned much more about the fascinating history of Caldwell. "It revitalized our town," Karen said. Volunteers helped put up signs and improved the downtown area. In. one vacant lot which had grown up in weeds, the lot was cleaned up and landscaped, a shelter was built and historical markers were added. It is now Heritage Park. Caldwell had been nicknamed the Border Queen, positioned as it was along the Oklahoma line. It was a wild, wide open Cowtown in the days of the cattle drives along the Chisholm Trail.
