THE SLEEPING SICKNESS
WHICH MEANS DEATH
How many readers have heard of this
terrible disease? It prevails In that
far-away country Africa especially
tho Congo district. It Is caused by
the bite of the tsetse fly. When It
bites a persom, the sleeping symptoms
begin and flually the sufferer sleeps
until death occurs.
Contrast thts with the peaceful,
balmy sleep of health. Is there any
thing more wearing than to He awake
at night, tossing about, nervous, with
cold feet, hot head and mercy knows
w hat else? Short of letting the tsetse
fly bite us we would do almost any
thing for relief. How can we pre
vent It? Mr. Ceorge Hayes, of
Union City, Pa., writes: "I had lost
tny appetite, was all run-down, could
not sleep nights. I had tried every
thing without relief. Vlnol was rec
ommended, and to my surprise. It
helped me at once; gave me a splendid
ppetlte, and now I sleep soundly."
What Vlnol did for Mr. Hayes, It will
do for every run-down, nervous and
overworked person who cannot sleep.
Burlington l'.uys Kngines.
New engines ordered by the Bur
lington are expected to begin ar
rive within the next month or
jtwo. It is said the order for forty
placed was all fcr passenger en
gines, and that the read still has a
surplus of motive power for freight
moving. In fact the company now
has a number of idle engines at
Havelock awaiting the return of
increased tonnage. These machines
are all freight engines.
The Burlington is now "scrap-.
ping" its older and smaller engines
rapidly. The "class A" engine,
which a few years ago handled al
most all of its tonnage, both freight
and passenger, is going to the scrap
pile. Quite a number of these have
recently been sent to Havelock to be
torn to pieces for the old metal they
contain. The loss of machines for
road wcrk has made the purchase
of new passenger engines necessary.
A Havelock shopman tells a story
about Second Vice President Wil
lard's idea of order, that relates to
engine destruction. A number of
the old engines had been hauled
from Lincoln to Havelock to go to
the borifyard. and these were set out
on the side track just as they had
arrived in the yards, some facing
one way and some the other. All
semblance of order had been lost in
this work, the employes feeling that
engines going to the boneyard
should not be given much attention.
Mr. Wlllard ordered that they all
be turned one way and that order
be brought out of the disorganized
mass, even though the engines were
going to the scrap pile. State
"Adam God" Feels Good.
Kansns City, May 25. Smiles and
elation were in the face of James
Sharp, self styled "Adam God,"
when his defense was begun today in
his trial for the murder of Patrol
man Michael Mullane. Sharp, f,n
affable mood, whispered almost con
tinuously to his attorneys during the
session, while at recess he flitted
about the room with a friendly word
for all. He even attempted to Joke,
taking advantage of the heavy at
mosphere outside that made the
courtroom dark and gloomy. Upon
a piece of paper he wrote this note
and sent It to the press table:
"It Is written that the Lord walks
where it Is dark, and not light. I
must be God for it is awful dark in
Sharp's defense as outlined today
by his attorneys Is insanity. The
attorneys made the assertion that
during the fatal riot last fall Sharp
fired his revolver in the air after he
had been wounded by a policeman's
bullet, and that none of the bullets
from Sharp's revolver took effect.
The attorney related how Sharp,
In response to a "small voice which
told him he was God," had sold his
farm near Woodward, Okla.. and
giving the proceeds to the poor, had
"gone Into the world to save the
I!nin of Much Value.
Another soaking rain has fallen
over the entire state of Nebraska
and It was more than a million
dollar rain. It is said to have been
worth many millions to growing
crops, especially in the southwestern
part of the state, where the crops
were beginning to suffer.
Railroads report that a light rain
fell over the district between Omaha
and Grand Island and all the branch
es between these points. A good
rain fell between Grand Island and
North Tlatte, with a heavy rain on
the branches north of Grand Island
and' Kearney. A slow, steady rain
fell all day Monday between North
Platte and Cheyenne, again making
certain crops In this semi-arid dry
farming section. Heavy rains also
fell on the Colorado division north
Rain also fell where It was needed
most on the McCook Division of the
Burlington with half Inch at McCook
and other points. There were show
ers all over the Lincoln division and
light rain on the Alliance division.
This rain has resulted In delaying
trains on the roads Into this city by
several hours but It has been of In
estimable value to the people of
Nebraska. Indications point to
more rain today as the weather Is
cloudy and warmer.
Nehawka, Neb., May 24, Tho
switch engine which runs between
Nebraska City and Weeping Water
was wrecked here today at 11:30
o'clock. It was going nt a high rate
of speed In order to push five empty
coal cars up the steep grade at Van
Court's stone quarry. A rail on a
sharp curve broke, causing the tender
to be hurled from the track, making
a complete wreck of It. The two hind
wheels of the engine left the rails and
the train, minus the tender went
about 200 ynrds before the crew could
stop It. One rail was broken Into
Ave pieces. No one was Injured.
