Bleakney, and together are spending a week with relatives and friendsof former years in this vicinity. This was Mr. Peterson`s first return visit since he left Kellogg, some twenty-five years ago. During that time he has met with merited success, being the owner of a large tract of fine farm land in the state of Nebraska. He and his wife and daughter retired from the farm some yearsago and have an elegant home at University Place, the college suburb of Lincoln.
