Infant Mortality Is Very Heavy
The infant mortality In Iowa has
been so strikingly heavy this summer
that the people at large may be led
to give serious attention to the bulle
tins of the state board of health; and
this is the main problem in the mat
ter of saving the babies. Any physi
cian of ordinary professional qualifi
cation can tell how to save the babies
but as a rule he can't get anybody to
liBten until after the babies are dead.
The circular lately issued by the
Iowa health board repeats the well
advertised truth that good milk
would save a large percentage of the
infants that die in the hot weather,
and the further demonstrated truth
that the one good milk par excellence
for any baby Is its mother's milk. So,
almost any particular baby can be
guarded against the greatest danger
that threatens it if its mother is will
ing to take the necessary trouble.
The greatest obstacle in the way of
the general employment of this excel
lent safeguard is that lt Is too sim
ple. It is not that women In general
wouldn't be willing to feed their
own babies In order to save their
lives, for most of them recognize that
lt is no great disgrace to nurBe one's
own offspring. It Is merely that they
don't know the value of lt. Like most
of the great remedies, it is too easy
and cheap to be recognized at its real
meet and agree on the rules for scor
ing the contest, subject to the handi
cap adopted by the board of agri
culture and the decision of the Judg-

tives for a few days. Mr. Berger'i

J. S. LIV1NOSTON,
A day or two since while in the
town of Union we had the pleasure of
Isiting the new homes of D.W. Fos'
ter and M. H. Shoemaker, which
were rapidly nearlng completion
They are both situated side by side,
but of different architecture, and
both contain about the same number
of rooms. They are elegantly locat
ed in the northeast part of the town,
and will be furnished with all modern
conveniences, such as heat, water,
bath room and the like. First class
workmen have been doing the work
and when fully completed, these two
old residents and excellent citizens
can rest the balance of their days
on earth in peace and happiness. Mr.
Shoemaker is one of the wealthiest
farmers ot that section, and owns
about 400 acres of land as fine as
ever a crow flew over. Mr. Foster is
similarly situated, and they both can
now sit back on their dignity and
review the early history of Nebras
ka to their hearts' content. The
Journal hopes that both these good
citizens will live long to enjoy the
fruits of their early struggles and
years of incessant toll.

Three weeks ago James Rice, a
prominent and well-to-do farmer liv
ing near Murray was suddenly stride
ened with an illness whtch finally
ended in bis mind becoming derang
ed to the extent that be was taken
to the insane hospital at Lincoln for
treatment. He gradually grew worse
and Mrs. Rice was summoned to his
bedside on Wednesday last, and re
mained there until death relieved the
unfortunate man Saturday. Mrs.
Rice accompanied the remains to his
late home and on Monday the
body was laid at rest In the Otter
beln cemetery, near his late home.
The deceased was about 49 years of
age, and highly respected by all who
knew him. He is survived by the
wife and several children. The en

with the widow and orphans In this,
the hour of their deep bereavement.
OLD SPORT" .
A Fall Off the Front of Switch
Engine, While Going at a
"Old Sport," a member of the
switching crew met with an accident
which caused him to get a shaking
up at least. "Sport" Is a member of
the canine family and came to Platts
mouth some time ago, a tramp. The
dog became attached to the switch
ing crew at the station, probably be
cause some of the crew found his
rations for him and soon learned to
hop on the engine and got to feel that
he was a part of the Burlington sys
tem. He makes regular trips to
the Junction and Oreapolls, riding
on the front of the switch engine, ap
parently enjoying the breeze. Yester
day he was making the trip from
Oreapolls, and Engineer Thrall was
hitting Up about twenty-five miles an
hour around a curve, when "Old
Sport" lost his balance and went
several summersaults into the weeds.
He was not injured, however, and
immediately started back to Oreap
olls to wait for the next train.
Fireman Gilea Roman notified Mr.
Thrall of the loss of a member of
the crew when the engine was slow
ed down and stopped, and backed up
for "Sport" to get on. The dog again
mounted the switch engine and ar
rived at the station with the switch
engine, feeling, no doubt, that his
friends still stood by him.
Attend Friend's Funeral.
Mrs. Joseph Wampler went to Om
aha this morning to attend the fun
eral of her friend, Mrs. Jessie Con
ners who Was burned to death at her
home Sunday morning. The fire oc
curred at her home when Mrs. Con
ners was pouring some keroslne into
a coal stove where she Intended to
burn some papers. Some time be
fore gasoline had been put Into the
coal oil can but had been emptied
out before the coal oil bad been put
Into the can, but It la supposed that
some ot the gasoline had become mix
ed with the coal oil which rendered
the oil more explosive. An explosion
followed the attempt to pour the
mixed oil into the stove, and Mrs.
Connors was fatally burned before
the flames could be extinguished.
Mrs. Wampler was a schoolmate of
Mrs. Connors during their girlhood.
