TO HIS HOME
Brave Conductor Goes to Creston
From Tuesday's Dally.
Conductor Jos, Crowder was re
moved this morning from his room
at the Perking Hotel to his home at
Creston, la. The steady Improvement
which had been noted from time to
time In this paper, has continued un
til the physicians deemed It safe to
remove, him to hla home and this
step was taken this morning. The
Injured man was delighted with the
prospect of gotlng to return to his
home anU from the enthusiasm he
manifested It Is almost certain he
will recover noon. Mrs. Crowder was
not bo enthusiastic over the change
as she felt that he was receiving ex
cellent medical attendance In this
city and that It would not be pos
sible to Improve on It. She stated to
a Journal reporter that she wished
to extend the greatest thanks to the
people of this city who had assisted
her in her troubles and that she cer
tainly appreciated the many kind
nesses which they had bestowed up
on her. She particularly wished to
express her gratitude to the attending
physicians and nurses for their active
work and treatment of her husband
and to the proprietors of tho Perkins
House for the many courtesies which
they had extended her during their
Htay at their hostelry.
Mr. Crowder was taken east this
morning train No. 4, being made
as comfortable as possible. The at
tending physicians are quite sure he
will stand the trip without losing any
of the gain he had made and that his

Last Saturday night Tom Stokes
while riding a horse sustained a
painful Injury to the toes of his left
foot. I lie aunimal was can-
toting along near the head of Chi
cago avenue when In some manner it
slipped and fell. Mr. Stokes came
clear of the animal except his left
foot which was caught under the ani
mal in such a manner as to bend
the toes of the foot backward and
badly strain the leaders. The Injury
was not dangerous but exceedingly
painful, so much so In fact as to
render him almost Incapable of
walking upon the foot. Medical at
tendance was had and everything done
to relieve the pain. Mr. Stokes was
able to be out and about last eve
ning and today the Injured toes were
In better shape. It was fortunate
that the Injury was not more serious
than It was as he could easily have
suffered a broken leg In the fall.
The animal was not injured
