A rumor wns In circulation this
week that our old friend, Fehllng
Hall of Rock Bluff, had been drown
ed In the Missouri river. A telephone
message brought word that he had
been enjoying the comforts of his

the Old Muddy.

hair hanging about their shoulders.
their hunting suits worn and ragged
staggered Into the village Wednes
day night. They were Captain
Brown and Lleutenatn Churchill, who
have been given up as lost In the
frozen north for the past year. They
reached It. In a dispatch they claim
ed they had been sevn leagues be
yond an Esqulmo village called Murr-
doak. Here they planted the
"Star and Stripes" and some "Blue
Ribbon" at the pole. Do not take
the man "Scotty," too seriously he
brought part of his "pelts" the
message from headquarters.
Talk about champion corn-husk-
ers. We have them. No good, up-
to-date community can be without
one of these leather-lungs. After the
the corn is all husked, they begin to
pump air, with corn silks and dust in
it. "Shuck corn! I just slipped down
one row after another until I had
my 135 bushels. Quit at 4 o'clock
milked m cows and slopped 125
hogs, climbed a six-foot wind mill in
a high wind and oiled the gearing,
got supper and took another fellow'
gin to the box social. How's that
for a day's work? No, the boss
wasn't around to see the loads, but
they were good measure."

Will autolsm keep on and 'on; un
til' pedestrianism is' 'no' more, or a
man to go ''altywhere, must take to j
the back alleys? It Is begriming td
look that way. But ' oUfwest Is
where the'" problem Is getting most
serious. For a while the farmers
opposition to automobiles furnished
the hope that this sort of locomo
tion would not be carried to excess.
But the ' scene Is changed. The
farmers are buying the autos now.
It is told of one town of 5,000 In
habitants in Oregon, that the farm
ers in that vicinity have purchased
forty-two machines within thirty
days and the demands keeps up. :
One man in speaking of the sit
uation out there said: "As soon
as a jay gets his crop In, he wants
to go around in his buzz-wagon
spending his money." The ambi
tion to have a nice team of horses
is dying out. They want a $2,000
car filled with women, In big hats
and plumes and with aristocratic
gaze into vacancy, Bailing into town
and impressing their significance up
on the dwellers there.
In town, It often happens, If a
person wants the glory of an auto,
he must do a little mortgaging to
raise funds, but in the country all
he has to do is to sell a crop and
buy a buzz-wagon for cash. Ohio
One don't have to go as far west
as Oregon to find the auto craze. He
finds the same condition here in
Nebraska, and perhaps only a "lit
tle worser." If you have $200 to
pay down and can cover your farm
or home with a mortgage for the
balance, you can own one of these
whiz carts, and by the time you
get the mortgage paid off your ma
chine Is gone, and you will need a

There Is no mistake regarding the
great closing out sale at M. Fanger's
Department store. It begins tomor

A Journal reported visited the
various departments of their estab

the choicest good3, but everything
is bound to be closed out slelk and

lea-ve Plattsmouth, and must close
out his immense stock of goods re
gardless of prices, and that he In
tends to do so. 1 Purchasers who
visit his store during his great sale
will find out from the prices to
which articles have been marked
down, that this Is no fake proposi
tion, but a genuine closing out sale
and one that must be made and
be made quickly. Mr. Fanger re
grets very much to leave Platts-
mouth, where he has resided for so
many years to enjoy the confidence
and respect of his many patrons, but
a change of climate - must be made

of goods has always been kept" up

all will go to the people of Cass

for bargains they will all get who
visit his store In this closing ou

his honesty in prices, the announce

should cause a rush to his store be

The Value of Health.
It Is a well known fact that we
do not appreciate the value 6f health

select the proper remedy In order
to restore the health. If such an
Irregularity happens to be found In

Scalp and lluir Troubles Generally
Caused by Carelessness.
Dandruff is a contagious disease
caused by a microbe which also pro
duces baldness. Never use a comb
or brush belonging to some one else.
No matter how cleanly the owner
may be, these articles may be in
fected with microbes, which will in
fect your scalp. It Is far easier to
catch hair microbes than It Is to get
rid of them, and a single stroke of
an infected comb or brush may well
lead to baldness. Never try on any
body else's hat. Many a hat band is
a resting place for microbes.
if you happen to be troubled with
dandruff, itching scalp, falling hair
or boldness, we have a remedy which
we believe will completely relieve
these troubles. We are so sure of i Tickling, tight Coughs, can be cur

Ralph Rezner is taking an en
forced layoff from his duties in the
shops owing to having had a large
splinter run through the back of his
right hand last Friday. The splin
ter entered between the first and sec
ond fingers on hip hand and came
out between the third and fourth.
The splinter was about the size of
a lead pencil. Surgical aid was had
at once and the hand dressed but it
will be several days before the hand
is sufficiently recovered to permit
his returning to work. The wound
is a very painful one but Is not con

The present Inspection trip
Vice President Wlllard, Chief En
glneer Calvert and General Manager
Holdrege, of the Burlington, to the
northwest and west on an Inspection
tour, is said also to contemplate
looking after construction progress
in the west and northwest where
gaps are being closed to give the
Burlington and the Colorado
Southern a new and continuous line
from the gulf to a Great Northern
connection In Montana, thus com
pleting a new coast-to-coast route.
The latest maps of the Burling
ton show the lines between Ther
mopolls and Shoshonl and between
Scrlbner, north of Frannle to From
berg, on the Northern Pacific, as
under construction. It is Bald the
next maps to be issued by the Bur
lington will also show proposed ex
tensions between Grover, east of
Cheynne, on what is known as the
Cheyenne line of the Burlington, and
Greeley, Colorado, and between
Greeley and Hudson on the main line,
Just east of Denver. The company Is
then to use the Northwestern line be
tween Powder River, Wyo., and Orln
Junction for a time, but It Is pro
posed to also build a new line be
tween these points to get better
grades than the Northwestern's line
provides. This will come later.
It Is said contracts have been let
for the work between Thermopolls,
or more accurately between the Big
Horn river canyon and Powder
River and between Scrlbner and
Fromberg, and that these links will
bo joined in a short time.
It is the opinion of local Bur
lington men that the opening of a
new line through Wyoming, with a
connection with the Denver line, will
greatly Increase the amount of traf
flc handled over the two main lines
of the Lincoln division, as this new
territory may be reached either via
the Denver line at Hudson and
Cheyenne, or via Alliance and the
Guernsey line. State Journal.
understanding that It will cost you
nothing for the trial if it does not
produce the results we claim. This
remedy is called Rexall "93" Hair
Tonic. We honestly believe It to be
the most scientific remedy for scalp
and hair troubles, and we know of
nothing else that equals it for ef

has produced In thocsands of cases.
Rexall "93" Hair Tonic is devised
to banish dandruff, restore natural
color when its loss has been broiigh
about by disease, and make the hair
naturally silky, soft and glossy. It
does this because it stimulates the
hair follicles, destroys the germ mat

circulation of blood, which nourishes
the hair roots, causing them to tight

everybody who has trouble with hair
or scalp to know that Rexall "93"
