Omaha, wax in the city Unlay,
! inking after business matters for
l!ie company. In a conversation
with Si:iennteii(lent of the Shops
William Haird, Mr. Smart stated
that tlie prospect of changing the
freight runs hack to the former
scln-dub; ami making the lay-over
for the Sioux City crews at Platts
mouth instead of at Sioux City, is
very good. The matter is being
worked out in the offices of the
superintendents of the divisions,
and the plan contemplates taking
olT No. 73 and restoring No. 71 to
the morning run, as formerly. Mr.
Haird is doing all that he can to
utl'ect the change, as it means an
addition of practically fifteen
families to the city's population.
R. F. Nickerson, superintendent
of piece work, with headquarters
in Chicago, was in the city today
on company business, as also was
Mr. Kepner of Lincoln, who was
picking up pointers in the local
shops calculated to facilitate work
in his own shops.

In District Court.
From Friday' Dally.
A inundate irom tne supreme
court was filed in the office of the
clerk of the district court today
in the case of Jacob Hayles vs.
Adena liayies, in which a decree
of divorce to plaintiff was enter

Wo Are Not to Blame.
A couple of months aj:o we
picked up an announcement from
the Plattsmouth Journal to the
effect that a girl baby had been
born to Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hudig
of Haeuck. Iteing unable to find
Mr. Hudig at his place of business
lore our. reporter called to have
the announcement verified, we
ook it for granted that the an
nouncement was o. k. and publish
ed it. Now there seems to have
been some mistake about the mat
ter, as a little boy baby arrived at
Mr. Budig's home Tuesday, so we
hereby withdraw the first an
nouncement in favor of the latter,
and cheerfully accept a box of
those fine Denver Specials which
Mr. Hudig is turning out at his
cigar factory. Havelock Times.
At. the time the announcement
was made in trie Jurnal it came
through one of the Hudig family
and one that ought to have known.
So it really was no mistake of the
Journal, but a misstatement on
the part of the other fellow. And
there you are.
Married at the Perkins.

bride's mother, and of this only
the given name, "Mary," could be
recalled. On occasions of this
sort technicalities should never be
allowed to thwart the course of
true love, and the small defect
was passed over. The judge was

Buys New Binder.
From Saturday's Dally.
Adam KalTenberger and son,
John, came in yesterday and took
out a new binder. They already
have one on the farm, but with
over 100 acres of small grain to
cut, one machine was not enough.
Mr. KalTenberger has just heard
from bis renter, who tills bis
South Dakota farm, informing
him of a wind und hail storm
which damaged the corn and other
crops pretty badly. The storm, oc
curred last Monday, July 8. Be
fore it came a fine prospect for
all kinds of crops appeared, but
after the storm the fields looked
like half a crop would be all that
could be expected. Two miles

no particular damage. A largo

Big Wheat Crop.
The following item is taken
from- the Manley department of
the Louisville Courier: John
Tighe has a force of men at work
cutting his 200 acres of winter
wheat. To see the men at work is
rather a novel sight, since a head
er is being used in place of a
binder. . The change was made
necessary by the unusual short
ness of the straw. The wheat is
of good quality and promises to
turn out well. Frank and Gust
Slander, Charles and John Murphy
also have heading outfits at work.
Several farmers cut their wheat
wilh mowers and then raked and
threshed it. Others used binders,
but the straw is too short to bind.
Don-is for Hot Weather.
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, the pure
food expert, at Washington, D.

for the relief of sweltering hu
manity from the heat. Here is
Don't think of the heat.
Don't drink ice-cold beverages.
Keep busy al some useful oc
cupation. Don't run.
Don't eat too much.
Dr. Wiley is one of the best
posted men in the world on both
health and foods that are nutri

Wheat Turning Out Good.
W. T. Smith, who runs a West
ington threshing machine, came
in this morning because it was too
wet, to thresh today. He had
threshed for George Smith and for
Arthur Sullivan Thursday and
Friday. The yield is in excess of
what the men cxpveted to realize,
some of it exceeding the farmer's
guess almost five bushels per
acre. Tho quailty of the wheat
is excellent and will weigh out
about four pounds above the legal
