JUDGE JOHN NEVIN8 DEAD.
Judge John Nevins, one of the most
prominent figures in the pioneer history
of Denison, died Friday at his residence
at the corner of Austin avenue and Gan-
About three years ago fudge Nevins
was attacked with cancer, which appear-
ed on the tongue, and from that period
until death ended his suffering, it was a
brave struggle to live. Judge Nevins
visited Hot Springs, ana he was first told
there that his case was hopeless, but not
until the past year has he ever abandoned
the hope of ultimate recovery. Special-
ists far and near were consulted, but the
hoped for relief never came. It seldom
ever does in case of cancer. For the
past year Judge Nevins has almost drop-
ped out of public sight. He was not
able to articulate, and all of his wishes
immediate friends knew hU condition,
and -were loth to tax him with their pres-
ence, but now that he U dead, genuine
expressions ot sorrow are heard on every
hand. He was a courageous example ot
physical suffering while the cancer was
eating his life away, and he was uncom
plaining. He was always soothed and
sustained by the unfaltering trust ot a
loving and devoted wife, which has, no
doubt, prolonged his life. The last few
hours were merciful, for he suffered but
In the pioneer hUtory of Denison, if it
U ever written, Judge John Nevins will
loom up a prominent factor, in fact, no
one was better known in official' and
business circles than he.
Judge Nevins was an exceptional man,
a remarkable man, he was the personifi-
cation of what passes as "hard sense.”
Like the few pioneers that are left us,
he drifted to Denison with the advent of
the M. K. & T. railway. He first went
to Sherman but almost immediately
came to Denison. A man ot his tem-
perament could not long remain passive,
so he went into political life, being
