The "Miserable" Pacific had another
wreck on the Auburn and Omaha
branch, last evening about a mile and
a half out of Weeping Water. A
through freight ran into the rear end
of the local going south, aed busted the
way car into flinders, and knocking
several other cars off the track. The
engineer and fireman on the through
freight had a narrow escape from in
stant death. Both jumped from the
engine and were seriously injured. The
blame is laid on the conductor of the
local freight for not having the proper
rear end signal. Several passengers
also had a narrow escape. Both trains
had left Weeping Water a few mom
ents before the passenger from Omaha
to Auburn arrived, and this train was
delayed about three hours. The writ
er had the pleasure of laying out in the
tall weeds along the track while our
engine could clear the track.

The Cause of Many
There is a disease prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decep
tive. Many sudden
deaths are caused
by it heart dis
heart failure or
apoplexy are often
the result of kid
ney disease. If
kidney trouble is
allowed to advance
blood will at
tack the vital organs, causing catarrh of
the bladder, or the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
I'.ladder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and
a cure is obtained quickest by a proper
treatment of the kidneys. If you are feel
ing badly you can make no mistake by
taking Dr." Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the
great kidney, liver and bladder reined;-.
It corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain in passing it, and over
comes that unpleasant necessity of being
compelled to go often through the day,
and to get up many times "luring the
r.ight. The mild and the extraordinary
e tlect of Swamp-Root is soon reali.ed.
It stands the highest for its wonderful
cures of the most distressing cases.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take ar.d is
sold by all druggists in fifty-cent and
one-dollar size bottles. You may have a
sample bottle of this wonderful new dis
covery anil a book that, tells all about it,
both sent free by mail. Address, Dr. Kil
mer & Co., Dinghamton, X. V. When
writing mention reading this generous
offer in this paper. Don't make any
mistake, but rememler the name, Swamp
Root, Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, and the

George Peters Acquitted.
Tuesday the case of the State vs.
George Peters was tried to a jury in
the Justice Court of Orlando 1 efft.
! The jury was composed of Henry Wulf,
Aug. Thiele. Ed. Morley, J. M. Dun
bar, II. A. Nutzman and Dan Click.
Chris Schomaker, the complaining wit
ness, testified that the defendant struck
i him with provocation, indicting a ser
ious wound. This evidence was cor
roborated by his wife, son and daugh
ter, who all claimed to have witnessed
the assault. The defendant, Geo.
Peters, told a very straight story, in
I whi'-h he admitted striking the eom-
I plaining witness, al ter Schomaker had
started to hit him over the head with a
bucket of .milk. The jury evidently
believed his side of the affair, and after
being out ten minutes returned a ver
dict of not guilty. The defense also
proved that Schomaker had been try
ing to pick a quarrel all day before the
assault. Wrn. Robertson Jr., acting
county attorney, represented the state
and showed himself a capable attorney
to handle a law suit. H. (1. Wellensick
who represented the defense, was at
his Lest and made an eloquent plea to
the jury, in which he took some hot
shots at the complaining witness.
The large crowd that witnessed the
trial were well pleased with the ver
dict. Fcr Rent.

Several of the Tennis enthusiasts
went to Weeping Water Monday even
ing and gave them a series of games,
and also had the pleasure of contesting
with a very skilful player, Mr. Barry
of Everett Wash.
The Manley ball team was defeated
Saturday, by the Murdock team, in a
very close and exciting game, with a
score of 6 to 4. The players do not
seem inclined to think they were beaten
fairly, as the umpire seemed to have
poor eyes in the last inning, by allowing
a Murdock base runner to score, after
he had collided with our short stop, as
he was fielding the ball. Had this been
seen, the game would have gone at least,
ten innings, and perhaps more. 2'Jite
a delegation of rooters were present
and thoy all dor.e their duty in rooting'
for the team.

Dear Sir: Would you rather have
youi customers speak of your shoes as
wearing well, as not running down at
the heel, as turning water, and taking
a shine; or wag their heads and say
W'd rather have ours, at long inter
vals, say: "We want some more) a nt,
and we want Devoe. " We know it isn't,
in the human nature to paint very of
ten; we don't expect them to come very
often; don't want 'em to. All we want
is to paint what they have to paint
whenever they paint it; the longer the
time, the surer they are to come-back.
There's business enough in the world:
there are houses enough in the world;
there are houses enough to paint; let
'em take their time.
If we were shoemakers, we'd make
shoes to last a life time, and shoe the
whole time. Yours truly,
