Spokane--Asa V. Bradrick, pioneer lumberman, who died on December 5, 1918, left an estate valued at $45,000, which is all given to a son, Asa W. Bradrick of Palouse, Wash.

The will was made one day after the death of his wife, who died two days before Mr. Bradrick. The signature affixed is scarcely more than a scrawl, as Mr. Bradrick was very low when it was made. Ethel H. Butts, superintendent of the Deaconess hospital, was on the witnesses.

J.C. Cunningham, Fred Prescott and F.E. Elmendorf were appointed by Superior Judge Webster to appraise the property, consisting principally of real estate in Washington and Idaho. Mr. Bradrick left a large cattle ranch north of Spokane, where he had intended to build up a herd of fancy cattle. The will requests that the son be not required to furnish bond and that no court proceedings be required.

Attorney F.A. McMasters presented the will for probate.


Two weddings were solemnized at the Methodist parsonage last evening at 8 o'clock. This was not a double wedding, but the ceremonies were performed one immediately following the other, by the Rev. H.O. Perry.

The first bride and groom to take the vows were Miss Ella Nebelsieck and Mr. Harry Schooler of Genesee. Miss Ella Nebelseick [sic] is a sister of Miss Emma Nebelsieck of the Fashion Shop in Moscow, who was in attendance at the weddings.

The second happy couple were Miss Ada Schooler of Genesee and Mr. Louis Steltz of near Moscow. Mr. and Mrs. Schooler will make their home at Genesee and Mr. and Mrs. Steltz will live near Moscow.

The four left this morning for Spokane.

The funeral of Jacob A. Hoke will be held tomorrow [January 15] morning at 10 o'clock at Grice's parlors. The Rev. Father Pecoul will officiate. [See below.]


Mrs. Jacob A. Hoke is still critically ill at her home on S. Jackson street. The funeral services of Jacob A. Hoke were conducted today [January 15] at the grave, on account of the quarantine.


The many friends of Mrs. T.W. Cooper will regret to learn of her death, which occurred at her home in Moscow at 8 o'clock this morning. Mrs. Cooper was 63 years of age and had been in ill health for a number of months, the cause of her death being cancer of the breast.

Rev. and Mrs. Cooper and family had lived in Moscow about seven years, having come here from Oregon. Her son, Harry [Cooper], died just two weeks ago of influenza at Enterprise, Oregon.

She leaves beside her husband, five children: Mrs. C.K. Chapman of Southwick; Mrs. Ira Compton of Medical Springs, Oregon; Charles A. Cooper of Dinuba, Calif.; Joseph Cooper and Mary Cooper of Moscow.

The funeral will occur at 1:30 Saturday afternoon at the home on Lewis street. The services will be conducted by Rev. G.W. Bailey of Spokane.


Rev. H.O. Perry seems at present to be the popular minister in Moscow for tying the nuptial knot. Yesterday the wedding ceremony of B.E. Sly and Miss Mabel Erickson, both of near Moscow, was performed at the Methodist parsonage at 3 o'clock in the afternoon.

Miss Sly, a sister of the groom, and Eston Willis attended the wedding. Mr. Sly is at present working in Lewiston and the happy couple left last evening for that city.
