From Hiitiinlny'i Dally,
Mr. J. M. Kalfenberger and his

Cie Perkins. . ;.
was Miss Ethel Hopkins of the
Ninth district. Miss Tighe re
ceived 1,803,828 votes, while
Miss Hopkins receive 1,612,015.
The contest was one of the
most interesting ever put on by
a western newspaper, and was
conducted with uniform fairness
throughout the weeks which it
lasted. The judges deciding upon
the winners were George A. Day,
fieorgc F. West, E. C. Page and
Edwin II. Jcnks.
The Journal is delighted that
the first prize was won by a Cass
county lady, and especially
gratified that it should go to Miss
Tiirhe, who has been one of ths
ieading teachers of the county
and has well earned her European
vacation trip, before entering the
contest of the World-Herald.
It was rumored on the streets
here yesterday that first place had
been won by Miss Tighe, but no
details could be had and we waited
to get the facts from reliable
sources before giving the matter
deserved attention and notice.
The World-Herald was much
gratified at the result of the
young woman's work in increas
ing their subscription list, and
the contest closed with a whirl
wind of votes.
Relllef From Hay Fever.
A hay fever sufferer wtio has
found relief in wearing goggles
and thus protecting his eyes from
flying pollen suggests4 that if
this precaution were (T nerally
taken at the approach (l'f! an
nual attack, a good dej nfdis
comfort might be avou,., 'byn
Youth's Companion. ' ' ' '
It, has been believed that lh$
intense inflammation of the eyes
like that of t,be throat which
usually goes with hay fever is
the result of Hhe nasal disturb
ance rather than the. cause of it.
Hut. there Is medical authority for
another theory that the trouble
with the eyes is the direct result
of the irritating pollen, and that
tears, passing through the tear
ducts, carry the trouble on to the
("joggles will not. cure hay fever,
but if this theory is correct, they
will prevent some irritation of the
eyes and throat, and to that ex
tent lessen the discomforts of (tig

Mr. I.. K. Yroman departed for
Rochelle, Illinois, this morning,
near where his parents resid
called there by a telegram sating
III n't his mother,. Mrs. Mary Vro
man, was dying. No details were
given as to the cause of death,
but Mrs. Vroman, sr., is about. 75
years of age and has been a suf
ferer from rheumatism for the
past thirty-five years, and hardly
able during the later years to use
her hands at all. She has been
through the years of her suffer
ing, the most patient and uncom
plaining, never allowing herself
lo speak a cross word to anyone.
Mrs. Vroman leaves nine children,
five sons and four daughters, all
having families of their own. Her
husband visited their son, I,. E.
Vroman and family, this summer,
but (irandnia Vroman has never
been able to make them a visit, so
great was she troubled with rhen
Hurrah for Omaha.
Omaha gets the railway mail di
vision headquarters. Denver was
n strong competitor for it and it
was feared by the Nebraska sen
ators for a while that Denver
might win, owing to the close
relations of Senator Guggenheim
with the administration. Hut
Postmnster Oeneral Hitchcock de
cided that Omaha was the more
desirable- location for the head
quarters. In our opinion, there
is nothing to good for the me
tropolis of Nebraska.

JUDGE ARCHER HAD SOME
Judge Admonished Parties in Two
Cases to Go Home and Do
So No More.
From Saturday' Daily.
The. wheels oi Judge Archer's
police court were set buzzing at
an early hour yesterday morning
when the current was turned on.
Two Iiohemian women who had
never been before his honor be
fore were there on a complaint
made by one against the other.
They talked very excitedly in the
language which the court did not
understand, but when the evidence
was all in which the court could
get, he dismissed the complaint
with the admolion that they
should not talk together, unless
they could do so good humoredly.
This was agreed to, and as this
was the first offense and the first
time the families were in trouble,
they were allowed to go home. .
A second complaint was by C. O.
Leland against Henry Rothman,
in which Mr. Rothman was
charged with offensive language
to a member of the Leland family.
The evidence resolved itself into
"you did" and "I didn't," with but
one witness on each side of equal
credibility, with the presumption
on Mr. Rothman's side of in
nocence, so the court dismissed
The third case was one filed by
Chief Rainy against Fred . Ohm
for drunkenness, to which Ohm
pleaded guilty and was given $10
and costs, and he is now lan
guishing in the cool confines of
the county jail, "where none can
molest or make him afraid."
Economy of Good Roads.
The economic losdue to bad
roads is beyond compilation and
the indifference of (Jie general
public toward any projected im
provement of our high fays is not
easily understood. Each owner of
property must be held account
able for tho conditions of the
highways of his locality.
Of our public works thiylondi
tion of none reflects our b liness
status more accurately thii the
condition of our highway.! To
make good roads so that predicts
of the farm are easily and qi'pkly
brought to this market is to-
crensQ in value or every iinn
along those roads and is prac
tically to increase tho farmt r
facilities and lessen their (
penses; at the same time makini
this town a bigger and belt?!
market for farm products. 'J
If every citizen could scf, 'in
actual money the financial return
on his investment in good roads
be would contribute his share
hereafter with alacrity. lie has
drained the swamps of his land
ami converted them into arable
land. Ife has bought improved
farm implements he has, in
fact, adopted all modern methods
in order lo increase the pro
ductiveness of his land. Hut the
marketing of his farm products is
still seriously hindered by de
fective highways. The actual re
turns on any investment in im
proving the roads to market are
just as direct and even more
prompt than nre those from farm
drainage ami improved farming
In these days of automobiling
good roads open up a much wider
range of vision for rural in
habitants and the same conditions
that enable our residents to visit
other sections induce residents of
other communities to visit this
locality. This intercommunica
tion results in a kind of advertis
ing that inevitably increases the
value of properly by bringing in
desirable purchasers. In fact, the
results accruing from the build
ing of good roads comprise an
endless chain of benefits to the
community that builds the roads.
Tom Sperry, whose home is in
Weeping Water and who works in
the stone quarry east of town,
was unfortunate enough to get
his foot pretty badly mashed
Wednesday morning.. He was
working around the big traction
engine they use down . there to
haul rock, and in some manner
got his right foot in front of the
wheel. Fortunately there was
four or five inches of dust in the
roadway and no bones were
broken, but he will be laid up for
some time with it. He was
brought to town and Dr. Thomas
dressed the injured foot, when he
was taken home. Nehawka News.
Mr. James Marshall, special
agent for (lie Fireman's Fund In
surance company, was n business
visitor in the cily today; also Mr.
C. D. McKinie, representing the
Fire Association, was a Platts
mouth visitor today.
John Kreager In Town.
From Saturday's Ially.
Mr. John Kreager of Mt. Pleas
ant precinct drove to Plattsmouth
this morning and did his week
end shopping. Mr. Kreager says
that the fifth day of July was the
hottest day of the season, the
thermometer registering 110 in
the shade at his home. Spring
wheat and oats are being harvest
ed in his neighborhood, and are
yielding very good, and the corn
crop is looking well for the season.
THE LIGHTNING BUGA
BOO 10NG PEOPLE
They Are More Fearful of Lightn
ing Than of Railroad
With the coming of the
thunder storms that accompany
the extremes of heat, many peo
ple are again made miserable.
Nearly everyone has some neigh
bor whose uneasiness begins from
the moment a little thunderhead
pokes its nose above the horizon,
the progress of which across the
sky is watched with fear-stricken
It may comfort such persons to
know that the average proportion
of deaths from lightning is five in
a million. It is much more
dangerous to ride on a railroad
Of that five in a million, a good
proportion of cases vtere pre
ventable by ordinary common
sense, by not sheltering beneath
some conspicuously isolated tree,
by keeping indoors and not close
to windows, doors or chimneys.
The worst danger about a
thunder storm is that you may
have forgotten to renew your in
surance policy on some isolated
building. For lightning is a real
danger to inflammable property,
if not to human beings.
Auto Refuses to Whoa.
From Saturday's Pally.
Yesterday afternoon as Dr.
Cook drove his new car west up
Main street near his office and
circled out to the right and
turned haw, so as to make the
stop directly in front of his office,
some little excitement was creat
ed among the onlookers when the
contrary machine declined to
halt at the curb, but mounted the
sidewalk and made for the doc
tor's office door. As sonri is the
doctor observed that the car had
no intention of stopping at the
curb, he jammed on the brake,
closing her down hard, bringing
her up within a couple of feet of
the office door. A lady rushed out
of a neighboring doctor's office
ami offered to administer a stimu
lant, while Itriice Roseuerans
came flying out with his kodak lo
get a picture. Dr. Cook, however,
took it all calmly and backed his
contrary auto oiT the walk to th,3
place he had first intended if, to
slop, and all was seren again in
the vicinity, and what promied to
be a serious wreck was averted by
the doctor's presence of mind.

Injures Hand on Barbed Wire.
Mr. Henry Eikenbarry, residing
near the city, was stretching
barbed wire Thursday when he
got a scratch by a barb on tho
back of his hand, which has since
caused the hand to swell con
siderably. Mr. Eikenbarry came
to town at once and had his hand
dressed by a physician and he
thinks it is doing as well as could
be expected. He bad several
scratches on his hands from the
wire barbs that day, but it hap
pened that the barb which struck
his hand appeared to be poisoned.

CLOSE GALL FOR AN OLD
GENTLEMAN AT DEPOT
The Old Fellow Was Standing on
the Track and Did Not Notice
Approach of Train.
From Saturday'! Dally.
On the 6th inst. as No. 2B, due
to arrive from the west at about
.4 o'clock p. in., ran into the yards,
it came within a hair's breadth of
running down an aged gentleman
who was standing on the track
and had not the engineer had the
engine under complete control no
doubt ' the old gentleman would
have been killed. The crew did
not learn tho man's name.
As No. 20 came into the yards
a freight west-bound was passing
through, and the old gentleman
was standing on the east-bound
track intently gazing at the pass
ing freight and did not notice the
whistle and bell of No, 2(1, which
was bearing down upon him from
the west. The whistle was re
.pealedly sounded and the engine
slowed down more and more as it
approached the man standing,
loaning on his cane, apparently
unconscious of danger, and the
engine was brought to a stop
wilhin two feet of the old man
before he realized it was in the
vicinity. He stepped back as
cooly as could be, apparently
not nearly as much excited as
the train crew. Mr. Johnson
says, in all his experience at rail
roading, he never before saw a
man so nearly run over and
escape without harm.
