Sheriff Salisbury returned from Grand Island Monday accompanied by Mrs. J P. Nystrom, wlio is cnargeu William Adair, proprietor of tho North Platto Laundry, lias brought suit in tho district court of Pottuwatn mlo county, lown, for $100,000 tor per sonal injuries alleged to have hconl sustained when an automobllo in which he was riding turned turtle near Big Sprigs, Nob., on Juno 10, 1914. Adair Is suing the Colo Motor Co., which built the car In which he says lie was hurt. The petition sets forth that Gcorgo Goffee of North Platte bought a slx cyllnder Cole automobile on May 29, 1914, and that on tho dato of tho acol denlt was taking Adair from this city to Cheyonne, Wyoming. One of the wheels broke, and tho car turned ovor on Adair. He suffered a fractured hip ad internal Injuries about the heart and chest Tho grounds tor the suit are that tho company was negli gent In putting a car with defectlvo wheels on the market. The petition further sets forth that the spokes were brittle, notwithstand ing the fact that tho company adver tised that the woodwork was cou sructed of the bept material on tho market, and .that tho car was a per; fectly safe vehiclo for the transporta tion of persons on a) public hlglnyny while miming at a speed of thirty .to forty miles per hour. Tho sirit is attracting widespread at tention because the plaintiff alleges the 'manufacturing company Is liable for an accident in which its car is in volved after tho car has been sold to a private individual. ::o:: A Neglected Husband.
