Saturllay night Alex Hunter,
who hails from the vicinity of Pa
cific Junction, came to this city
and proceeded to take on numer
ous drinks and proceeded to tho
home of Mrs. McPherson, in tho
northwest part of town, and al
though his company was not de

A NARROW ESCAPE
An accident which might have
resulted in the death of one of
the parties occurred last evening
about 5:30, when Wayne Dickson.
who was driving an automobile
down Sixth street, turned at the
corner of Vine street and started
towards the postollice, turning out
to the right to avoid some boys
who were riding bicycles on the
street, and as he turned one of
the boys, Ellery Groman, turned
the same way, with the result that
the car struck the bicycle, throw
ing the young man to the pave
ment with great force. The car
was going at a low speed and was
brought to a standstill at once
nnd the occupants picked young
Human up. He was considerably
dazed by the fall, but fortunately
was not seriously hurt, and after
a few minutes' rest was conveyed
lo his home. There can be no
blame laid on the occupants of
the machine, as they made every
effort to avoid the boys and were
running at less than the legal
speed limit. Those riding bicycles
on the streets should keep their
eyes open, as it is a great deal
easier for them to get out of the
way than it would be for an auto
mobile. "THE WOLF" AT THE

Saturday night for the purpose of
initiating a large class of new

The special event of the even

preme guardian of the Woodmen
Circle, as a visitor. Mrs. Man
chester brought with her a finelv
uniformed drill team of eighteen
members, who assisted in the in

beautiful ceremony of the order.

Play to a Crowded House and the
Greatest Success of the
One of the most pleasing
musical comedies that has been
shown in this city was that of
The Prince of Tonight," which
appeared at tho Parmele theater
Saturday evening. The show pos
sesses some very beautiful scenic
effects and the story of the play
is most interesting and keeps the
attention of the audience from
the start to the final curtain. "The
Prince of Tonight" is one of the
best musical comedies produced
in recent years and possesses
some very bewitching musical
numbers and was in the hands of
a very fine company here. Tom
Arnold, who is appearing this
season as the prince of the mythi
cal country of Lunitania, was de
lightful in his acting nnd posses
ses a fine voice, which was heard
in several numbers, being especi
ally effect in "Her Eyes Are Blue
for Good Old Ynle" and "Tonight
Will Never Come Again." Mr.
Arnold is fortunate in being sup
ported by such a splendid actress
as Miss Eva Carey, who acted the
role of Miss Virginia Stuart, and
was nil that one could ask in this
pari, and the love scenes between
her and the prince were verv
strong. In the character of
laniel Stuart, the mineral water
magnate, Frank Harsh was a
laugh from start to finish and is
undoubtedly one of the cleerest
comedians appearing on the
American stage today. The com
pany was good in every way and
every member was up and going
from start lo finish and the
chorus has some mighty fine sing
ers in its ranks, especially the
male section, which is one of the
best that the playgoers of this
city have had tho pleasure of
hearing for a long time.
Tho Parmelo was filled lo its
capacity for the performance and
attested the appreciation, of the
people of the delightful show of
fered, and it is hoped that the
management can secure more
such attractions in the future, ns
the crowd Saturday night demon
strated Ihe interest the public
takes in a good, up-to-date at
traction, and such shows will un
doubtedly receive tho continued
patronage of the public.
Woodmen Give Dance.
Tho Modern Woodmen of
America gave a most successful

their handsome new hall in the

in charge of the dance worked
hard on tho event nnd may well
feel proud of the success they
made of it.

A THRESHING MACHINE
GOES THROUGH BRIDGE
William Ash and Walter Lovell
Have Narrow Escape From
From Saturday's Daily.
William Ash and Walter Lovell
came very near having a fatal ac
cident last Thursday afternoon
while moving Mr. Ash's threshing
outfit from ono job to another.
The engine on which they were
both riding crashed through a
bridge over a l i-foot ravine, just
west of Frank Jameson's farm,
north of town. When the bridge
commenced to crack, Lovell shut
off the engine and jumped. Mr.
Ash, in attempting to jump, was
pitched head first down against
the fire box and went to tho- bot
tom of the ravine with the engine.
As it turned out it was lucky, for
in that way he was protected from
the crash, which demolished the
tool and coal boxes on the rear of
the engine. It was also lucky for
him that the tongue to the separa
tor broke so that it did not fol
low the engine into the ditch, for
it would have certainly crushed
him. As it was he got out of the
mixup with only the dislocation
of a bone in his foot. This was
caused by his foot becoming fast
and getting slightly wrenched.
Billy says that when he landed
at the bottom of the ditch, after
what seemed hours from the time
the first crash came, and found
his foot fast, his first thought was
of being scalded to death. When
he had released himself his next
concern was about his companion,
Lovell, for he thought he must be
under the engine somewhere.
When ho found Lovell safe and
saw how fortunate things had
come out he was simply so weak
from the full realization of what
the danger was that he couldn't
do a thing for a while.
The damage to the threshing
outfit was very slight and the en
gine was quite easily removed
from the ditch by the aid of an
other engine that Mr. Ash owns,
and the assitance of R. D. Mc
Nurlin and his moving apparatus.
SENATOR BANNING GOMES
PRETTY NEAR LOSING HIS GAR
From Saturday's Dally.
Senator AV. B. Banning had a
very cosily experience in the vil
lage of Alvo Tuesday night. The
senator drove into town with hi
fine touring car, about 6 o'clock,
and at once placed it in the livery
barn for the night, and the next
morning when he called for it he
found that someone had taken it
out of the barn during the night
and no sign of tho machine could
be found. The senator at once
called up the neighboring towns
to see if a car answering the de
scription of his had been seen,
but to no success. Later in tho
morning a farmer drove in and
reported a car broken down about
three-quarters of a mile out of
Alvo, and on arriving at the
scene it was found to be Mr. Ban
ning's machine. The car had
been run about ten miles and was
in a badly damaged condition,
several of the gears on tho ma
chino being broken and otherwise
showing some very hard usage.
It seems strange how a machine
could bo stolen out of a place
where parlies were sleeping start
ed up and got away with without
causing some alarm. The parties
were evidently not satisfied with
taking tho car, but proceeded to
damage it to such an extent that
it will cost $30 or $10 to place it
in condition to be used, and if it
is possible the miscreants should
be brought to time for the out
rage. Here is a woman who speaks
from personal knowledgo and
long experience, viz., Mrs. P. H.
