The opportunity of securing the

This morning at about i o'clock
the frame buildinp at Cedar Creek

shop by S. J. Reams, was struck'
by lightning during tho heavy
electrical storm, and as a result
it is a total ruin, as it was im
possible to check the spread of
the llanios after the buildinp was
ipnited by the liphtninp1. The
contents of the buildinp- were de
stroyed, as nothing: of value could
bo saved. The loss will be par
tially covered by insurance, and
will be in the neighborhood of

tensive throuph this section, and

of the thunder made the storm
more awe inspiring" than usual.

Judging from present indica
tions The Journal's splendid offer
of eipht valuable awards to eight
representative people from this
section, seems destined to be a
preat success. As the exceeding
ly liberal nature of this most
generous offer becomes more
fully understood, more and more
of the popular and prominent
voung men and women of Platts-
mouth ami tho entire community
are becoming interesting in the
enterprise and are entering the
friendly contest with great en
thusiasm. It is without doubt a
rare opportunity for securing a
high-class car. The fact that such
a popular and worth-proven car
as the 101 i Overland is offered
as the Grand Prize in this cam
paign has caused added attention
to be drawn toward this big gift
enterprise. The Overland tour
ing car will be awarded without
liscriminat ion or favor to the
man or woman, married or singlot
who receives the largest number
of votes polled in the whole cam
paign. It is a handsome beauty.
fully equipped and ready for the
road. The Overland is the king
of the highway all over the United
States and the reason is because
it is the car that goes where you
want it, when you want it and
combines strength, beauty, and
appearance with durability, speed
and comfort.
The Schmoller & Mueller Piano,
purchased from the manufactur
ers, will be awarded to the candi
date who receives the second
largest vote in the entire cam
paign. Words fail to describe
the beautiful tone of this in
strument. It is variant, substle
and charming-, showing- its un
limited powers in its wonderful
shadeing- and superb crecsendo.
The case is of finest walnut, mas
sive, yet graceful. It is beauti
fully finished throughout. The
unequalled and every increasing
demand for the Schmoller &
Mueller is the best proof of the
complete satisfaction these

The two diamond rings will be

worthy of your hardest efforts.
The 30 merchandise order and
the Elgin or .Waltham Gold

their respective districts after the
Grand Prizes have been awarded.
All those prizes are worth more
than the effort required to win
Hut this is not all. The Jour
nal has further provided that
there will bo no losers in this
contest. For every candidate who
enters this campaign and works
to the end and fails to win one of
the big- rewards or one of the
prizes in his or her district, shall
receive 10 per cent of all sub
scription moneys that have been
placed to their credit during- the
contest. By this arrangement no
one need work in vain.
Contest Absolutely Fair.
The campaign is to be con
ducted along linos of scrupulous
fairness to each and every candi
date who participates. The rules
are at once comprehensive and
concise, and a guarantee of a
"square deal" to all, for they will
be adhered to rigidly. There are
to le no favorites and no one is
under a handicap. Candidates
living- in the smaller towns and
country will have exactly the
same chance to win as those living-
in the larger ones, as there is

trict will win the car is at this

Found Dead in Yard Near Motor
cycle Upon Which He Had
Been Making Repairs.
Saturady night about eleven
o'clock the lifeless form of Aug
ust Havir, a young man of some
2 years of age, was found in the
yard at his home in the west part
of the city, where he had ap
parently met his death by elec
trocution. August, who had re
cently purchased a motorcycle,
had boon working on it during- the
day. painting it up and getting it
in first-class shape, and ho had
desisted from work shortly after
o'clock and had gone out to the
platform fiance, returning shortly
after 10 o'clock and going to
sleep. He remained asleep until
about 11 o'clock, when he awoke
and decided to make a few more
repairs on the motorcycle, as he
desired to use it Sunday, and ac
cordingly secured an electric
light extension, which he hooked
on to ono of the lights in the
house and ran it out into the
yard, where the motorcycle was
standing. It was not until some
time afterwards that his sistor-in-law.

that noticing the lights in the

vestigate the cause, and found
that. August was not in the house

lo find him dead ami clasped in

attached to the extension. She
attempted to rouse him and was
sfartlod to find that all signs of

touched tho light to remove it
from his grasp, saw that the
amp was apparently burned out,
and she received a severe shock
mm the current which was still
flowing through the lamp and
was thrown to the ground, drop-1
ping the lamp, which broke. As
soon as she was able Mrs. Havir
ran to the home of Joseph Hiber,
across the street, to inform them
of the tragedy and lo summon
medical assistance for the young
man. Mr. JJiner accompanied
ier to her home and he, too, re
ceived quite a shock from the
electric current. The arm of
August, which had received the
electricity was rapidly assuming
a purple hue, and at different
a u
places on the body there was
found marks of the manner in
which he met his death. The
sheriff was summoned as soon as
the death of the young man wa
fully determined, ami at once
visited the scene of the terrible
accident, but tho case was so ap
parent that of accidental death
that there was no question raiset
as to its cause.
Tho funeral was held this
morning from the Holy Rosary
Catholic church and whs attend
ed by a largo concourse of tho
friends of the unfortunate young
man, whoso life had been ter
minated just when ho was bo-
ginning to fully enjoy his man
hood. The mass was performed
by the Rev. Father John VIcek in
the usual impressive manner of
the Roman Catholic church. At
the close of the services the pall
bears, young friends of the de
parted, tenderly bore the body to
its last resting place in Oak Hill
cemetery. August was a member
of the Modern Woodmen of
American, in which he carried an
insurance policy.

This morning Martin Friedrich
and little Carl Gorder, who have
been at Chicago taking treatment
at the Pasteur institute in that
city for the injuries they sustain
ed by being bit by a dog suffering
with the rabies, returned home to
this city, after having taken the
full treatment for the disease
with which it was feared they
might be afflicted. Both of the
patients have gotten along fine
and feel little or no effect from
tho course of treatment, and the
friends feel very grateful that
they have escaped all danger of
being- afflicted with the dread
malady. That their cases were
taken in hand at once is doubtless
the reason that they escaped so
easily from its results.
