Ing shaken up and bruised a little.
The McLaln car was coming up
Fifth street from the east and the
Barber car was coming down Dewey.
Neither driver saw the other until
they were nearly together. Mr. Dur
ber started his car faster to get' In the
clear and Mr. McLaln used his emer
gency brakes, but the latter car bare
ly caught the rear of the other.
While this accident was probably
not due to cnrclessness, there aro
many cars In the city at the present
time that tho tralllc rules should be
observed more closely and should be
more rigidly enforced. A short time
later In tho evening two cars had a
race down Dewey street from the de
pot as far south as they could bo seen.
It was growing dusk and they were
running without lights and the num
bers could not be seen. Several peo
ple barely escaped being run down.

tempted to stop them, but they paid
him no heed and they nearly ran over

Since the Installation of the water
meters in the residences aNblg saving
has boon seen In the pumping of the
City water. And this has been noticed
for the month of July which ha$ been
an exceedingly dry month and a large
amount of water has been used for
Irrigation purposes, both on the lawns
and on small truck patches. For the
ono month Commissioner Welch re
ports a saving of over seven million
gnllons of water which means a sav
ing on coal. A saving of fifteen tons
of coal for the month Is reported, or
practically a saving of Bixty dollars
running expenses for the entire month
as compared with a year ago.
For tho first half of the year, from
January 1st to July 1st, there was an
actual saving of over seventy-two mil
lion gnllons of water and of about one
hundred tons of coal. This in com
parison with last year shows a saving
nlready of al arge amount by the in
stallation of the meters. The item of
$400 saving on coal, besides the ejqtra
wear and tear on the pumping machin
ery, would pay for several meters as
well as paying the Installation ex
pense. This in comparison with last
year shows a saving of about sixteen
per cent on water and of twelve and
one-half per cent on coal.
A Dry and Hot .Month.
From the monthly summary fur
nished by Observer Shilling, of the lo
cal weather bureau, it is learned that
last month, with three exceptions,
was the driest July in forty years.
The precipitation last month was but
fifth-eight one hundredths or nn men,
while the average for July for forty
years has been 2.6S inches. In July
last year the percipitation was 3.37
inches, and In July 1912. it was 4.0l
Inches. The three years In which the
July precipitation was less than last
month wero 1910, 1901 and 1890. Had
Lincoln county received the average
July rainfall of 2.CS inches, the corn
crop would have been the greatest
in its history.

"Some years ago I became afflicted
with kidney trouble and suffered from
agonizing pains through my back. I
gradually grew worse, became, stiff
and lame and on account of losing
my rest at night, was all run down.
My kidneys did not do their work
properly. Learning of Doan's Kidney
Pills, I procured a' them from McDon
ell & Graves' drug store, (now Schil
ler & Co.'s drug store). After I had
taken six boxes, I was cured. Prior
to using Doan's Kidney Pills, I had to
lay off from work for several months,
but after taking this remedy only one
month, I was able to go back to work."

A Matter of Judgment
Deacon Jones' goat was king of Jonesvillc until the railroad
came. He had butted everything into immediate flight, from the
yellow dog to the tax collector. The day the first express came
tearing in at thirty miles an hour, the goat met the engine "half
way.'' As the deacon stood'thoughtfully amid a "shower of goat
remnants" a friend said: "Well, deacon, what do you think of your
goat now? "Oh" said the deacon, "I admire his courage but
damn his judgment."
