Better be a bank-accOunt man than
a no-account man. The way to
prosperit)' and happiness is paved
witn good intentions put into exe
cution. If you feel that you really
ought to be saving something out
of earnings for after life, don't let
the good impulse go unheeded. The
person who is soured on life is the
one who has neglected to put into
force n simple rules of success.
Start an account with the bank to
day. Pay your bills by check and
vour money troubles will be over.

shade of the beautiful trees they en
joyed both their dinner and supper and
a most delightful day? outing. We
have been informed that the accomo
dating conductor of the M. P. train had
much to do with seeing that all the
ladies reached the lake, as some of them
were not very early risers, and if the
conductor had not waited, or even pul

In conversation with one of the citi
zens of Murray this week we were asked
to see if a little local in the Journal
would not get each and every property
owner to take an active part in clean
ing up the streets and alleys of the
town, and especially take some action
in this direction on Main street at once.
It certainly needs it and needs it bad.
Let every man in town see that the
street next to his property is cleaned
up right now.
H. G. Todd and son Dwyer, meet with
quite a serious accident Thursday after
noon in which both were slightly in
jured on a wire fence. They were driv
ing one of the gentle ponies to Murray
and in passing the Walker farm just
south of town, the pony became fright
ened at Otis McNurlin, who was in the
hay field, and raised a fork of hay to
the wagon just as Mr. Tood and son
were passing; the pony ran into the
wire fence, completely ruining the buggy
and throwing Mr. Todd and son into the
wire, inflicting several very painfull wire
cuts on numerous parts of the body, the
worst being on Mr. Todd's hip, and just
under the arm of the son, where several
stitches were required to patch the torn
ojice it will appear under this heading.
Br. Gilmore and Mr. Herren, ! Mur
ray, Have a Narrtw Escaps
From Serious Injuries.
One of the most destructive runaways
occuring in this vicinity for some time
took place this morning, a few minutes
before twelve o'clock on Lincoln avenue,
near the shops. That the runaway did
not result in loss of life was remarkable
and the gentlemen who went through it
are congratulating themselves that they
are alive.
Dr. Geo. H. Gilmore and Charles Her
ren. both of Murray, were driving to
the city, Dr. Gilmore desiring to catch
the Burlington noon train for Omaha,
and when near the south end of the shop
yards a, bolt became misplaced, allowing
the buggy tongue to drop down and the
buggy to run on the horses. The team,
naturally a wild and fractious one, be
came scared and began to dash madly
down Lincoln avenue. Mr. Herren,
who was driving, endeavored to hold
them, pulling so hard upon the reins
that the lines were broken. Owing to
the peculiar nature of the accident the
harder he pulled upon the lines the
worse the team was scared, as the bug
gy continued to push more and more
upod them.
When near the storehouse the wildly
running team upset the buggy, hurling
Dr. Gilmore out, but very fortunately
doing him no more damage than to tear
a large hole in his trousers and bruise
his hip badly. Some fifty feet further
on Mr. Herren was thrown out and in
some manner landed beneath the buggy,
being run over and bruised into insensi
bility. After this, with no hand to re
strain them, the animals, dashed on
down the avenue and down Third street
across Main and on up the hill, being
finally captured sometime later on North
Sixth street. The buggy in its wild
career was almost totally demolished,
being scattered piecemeal along the line
of the team's flight.
The runaway and the throwing out of
the occupants of the buggy was wit
nessed by a number of persons, all of
whom believed Mr. Herren to have been
killed. A rush telephone message was
sent to the office of Drs. Livingston by
Master Mechanic Baird, ' but in the
meantime Dr. Gilmore had reached Mr.
Herren and discovered that he was still
alive, but unconscious. A cab was hur
riedly summoned and the unfortunate
man was conveyed to Dr. Livington's
office, where an examination of his in
juries disclosed that he was suffering
from a severe scalp wound, the scalp
being laid back to the bone, while his
arms, face, head and shoulders were a
mass of bruises. Dr. Gilmore's injuries
were so slight that he was able to con
tinue his journey to Omaha, but Mr.
Herren was compelled to go to bed for
a rest.
Both gentlemen were exceedingly for
tunate to escape so luckily, and each
congratulated himself that the matter
was no worse.
