New Sheriff Declares It Had Much to Do With His Success in Life

John P Nagel, who entered upon his duties as Sheriff of Campbell County today, has discovered that the figure 7 played an important part in his career.  Starting with his birth, which occurred March 7, 1870, he is now 35 years old or five times 7, and is probably the youngest Sheriff in the State.  He left school April 7 when 14 years old, or twice 7; was married May 7, 1890 and started in business May 7, 1897.

He was elected Sheriff on the Democratic ticket Nov 7 last year, defeating the strongest Republican in the county in the person of City Jailer Ben Ploeger.
