Matters That Involve Large Sum of
Money and Perhaps Long
From Saturday's Dally.
In the district court a suit has been
filed entitled James L. Wiles vs. Sollie
C. Keckler, Hula P. Keckler and
Ralph L. Keckler. In his petition
plaintiff alleges that he recovered at
the June term of the district court a
judgment against Sollie C. Keckler in
the sum of ?6,334.44, which remains
unpaid and unsatisfied at the present
time. He further states that the de
fendant, S. C. Keckler is insolvent and
that the defendants, Sollie C. Keckler
and Hulda P. Keckler, on March 17,
1915, made and executed a deed trans
ferring some land to Ralph L. Keck
ler, with the intent to avoid payment
of the judgment and the petition asks
that the deed made to Ralph L. Keck
ler be declared null and void and set
aside and that the land be sold to
satisfy the judgment held by plain
tiff. C. A. Rawls appears as at
torney for plaintiff.
A suit entitled George E. Dovey,
administrator of the estate of Ed
ward G. Dovey, deceased, vs. Frank
E. Schlater, administrator of the
estate of Jane A. Dovey, deceased,
has also been filed and the petition is
a very large one, covering some
thirty-two pages. In this the plain
tiff sets forth that the judgment in
the county court in which the share
of Jar.e A. Dovey in the estate of
Edward G. Dovey was fixed at $54,-297-64,
is unjust and that the lower
court did not have the jurisdiction to
pass on the case as presented. The
case involves the matter of the in
terest that Mrs. Jane A. Dovey held
in the estate of her husband, who died
in England in 1881, and which estate
was in charge of George E. Dovey as
administrator, from 1881 to the pres
ent time. On the death of Mrs. Dovey
the heirs of her estate, through their
administrator, filed in the county
court a demand for a report on the
estate of Edward G. Dovey to de
termine the interest held in the estate
by Mrs. Dovey,' and the finding of the
frour.ty court" tt'as State.! above, and
for this the plaintiff is appealing to
the district court.
The old frame house on Washing
ton avenue, near the German Home,
which in years past has been the
rendevous of many floating characters
and is a nuisance in general, is now
rapidly approaching a state where it
really should be torn down as a pub
lie nuisance and an eyesore to every
one traveling up and down the ave
nue. Several times the Plattsmouth
Tuin-Verein, whose property adjoins
the old house, have sought to pur
cha..e it, but were unable to secure a
title and the old hack has stood as a
black mark against that section of
the city, as it is . really only fit for
kindling wood. Surely there should
be some legal method by which the
old shell could be condemned and torn
down, as it is almost certain that the
persons who owned the house in the
past will not care to expend the sum
necessary to put it in repair, and
there is something over $200 in un
paid taxe3 on the property, which
must be settled before the property
could be transferred. If there is any
way in which the old house could be
gotten rid of surely it ought to be
taken up by the city and cleared away
and the lot made into a small park if
it cannot be sold to some of the resi
dents in that section. There is really
only a fraction of a lot to the place
and the only persons who could use
the land to any advantage would be
the German Turn-Verein.

Yesterday afternoon while Frank
Blotzer, jr., was engaged in cranking
his automobile at his home, west of
this city, he was so unfortunate as to
have his right foroarm fractured. "The
accident was caused by the crank fly
ing back and allowing the arm of Mr.
Blotzer to strike the radiator of the
car, with the result that it was frac
tured in a painful manner. The in
jured young man was brought to this
city, where the arm was set and the
patient made as comfortable as pos
sible, but it will be several weeks be
fore the arm is in condition where it
can be used.

Yesterday afternoon Herman
Weisse was engaged in splitting some
kindling with a hatchet at his home
and ho was unfortunate enough to get
the middle finger of his left hand in
the road of the descending hatchet,
with the result that the upper part of
the finger was almost completely
severed, hanging only by a small
piece of the skin. The injured mem
ber was dressed by Dr. Cook and the
Datient made as comfortable as could
be expected under the circumstances,
but in the future he will see that his
hands are not in the dange zone
when he starts in chopping kindling.

Jesse N. Elliott, who for several
weeks past has been at St. Joseph's
hospital in Omaha recovering from
the effects of a broken leg received
in an accident on a farm near Cedar
Creek, has return d to his home near
that place and i recovering there
from the effects of his injury, al
though the leg is far from well and
it will be several months before he
gains the use of it. The break in the
bone of his leg was a very severe one
and quite difficult to set, but it is
hoped that in a few weeks it will knit
together sufficiently to allow him to
get around a little, but the injury will
be a long time in healing.

city by the Superior Film Co. of Des
Moines, Iowa, and the participants in
the feature were composed entirely
of local talent. The play is entitled
"The Man at the Throttle," and
through the course ' of the play a
charming love story was woven" that
will make it most interesting to the
lovers of a drama of this kind, and
an automobile accident is staged as
one of the features of the play and
it took place on Main street this aft
ernoon at 1:30. The role of the gen

"Bernard Powers," was taken by C.
C. Parmele, while Miss Nora Rosen-

The wet weather jinix seems to
stick right with the residents of this
section of the west and the downpour
is the heaviest that has occurred for
years in this state. Another very
soaking and heavy rain fell here at
an early hour this morning and added
its efforts to the many preceding
rains that has held back the crops
and also delayed harvesting on ac
count of the amount of moisture
which prevails. The older residents
of the community report that not for
years has so much wet and chilly
weather been had in this county at
this time of year, and usually there
is a cry for rain during July and
August from the farmers, but thi
year there ha3 been no need of such
complaint and now a large number
are wondering just when the cold and
wet weather will end, to be followed
by the famous old Nebraska corn
weather, with plenty of heat and sun
shine. The continued bad weather
has also raised havoc with the plans
for the Saturday entertainments in
this city, as the days set aside for the
public amusement are usually the
worst of the whole week and certainly
is discouraging to the committee that
has been working on the plans for
the different events.

The first balloon ascension, given
as a part of the Saturday program of
amusement and entertainment,, as
planned by the citizens and Com
mercial club, . occurred this noon,
when Mr. Jameson, the aeronaut from
the Twin City Amusement company.
made a most successful ascension
The start was made from the lot on
Washington avenue and the aeronaut
was able to ascend several hundred
feet before it was necessary to cut
loose, and he landed on the farm of
Tom Stokes, just this side of the
river. The wind from the northwest
made it hard to ascend as high as was
desired, but the danger of landing in
the Missouri river made it necessary
to have the drop made much quicker
than was intended. While going up
Mr. Jameson performed on the bar
of the parachute in a thrilling man
ner. The second ascention will be
made this afternoon at 5 o'clock from
the lot on Washington avenue.

rather serious, injury when he was

addition to the wound inflicted by the
handle of the brake, will lay him up
for aome time., He was taken to the
office of a surgeon and the injuries

Red Sox Have a Hard Time Getting
an Omaha Team Down Here Who -Can
Hold Them Level.
In a rather wicrd contest yesterday
afternoon the Red Sox succeeded in
their assaults on the Krajacek team
of Omaha, and secured the long end
of the 13 to 2 score, the locals playing
a fast and furious game throughout,
and at no time did the visitors .have
. i
look-m, ana wnat, cnances came
their way were spoiled by rank errors
on their part. The members of the
Hose aggregation started the swat
fest in the opening inning and suc
ceeded in accumulating two runs to
their credit. Beal, who headed the
batting list of the Sox, was retired
on a short grounder to third base,
which resulted in his boing thrown
out at first; Parriott was passed to
the initial sack by Kaufmann, and on
the drive of Herold to second reach
ed the third station; Mason struck
out; Pitman hit to short and was safe
on an error, while Parriott and Her
old both registered at the plate;
Greko hit safely over second base,
but Pitman ended the show by being
tagged at the third sack.
In the second inning the locals
again took kindly to the slants of
Kaufmann, the hurler for the visitors
who was decidedly up in the air, and
annexed three more runs to their
credit. L. Smith opened the inning
by a safety to center field; Parker
struck out; Craig was given a pass
to first and was followed by Beal
who with a timely poke to left field
advanced the runners, but Smith per
ished at the home station by being
tagged by Gallagher; Parriott se
cured a timely hit to right field that
brought both Craig and Beal home
Herold slammed one to the first sack
and on an error was safe; Mason
made a line drive along third base
that brought in Parriott; Herold was
put out at home, ending the inning.
In the third inning tho visitors took
on a lease of life, when through the
combination of a walk and an error
they were able to secure a lonely
tally, but the; Sort came right back' in
their half and touched up the boys
from the metropolis for five more
runs. Pitman started the doings by
placing one to short which was allow
ed to go through for a safety on an
error; Greko followed with a safety
through third; L. Smith was whiffed
by Kaufmann; Parker shoved the pill
on the nose for a single to right field,
on which Pitman scored; Craig hit to
third and was safe on the juggling of
the ball by Brodbeck; Beal slammed
one to second which was dropped by
the demoralized second sacker, and
Greko scored; Parriott drove a hot
one to first, on which Parker register
ed at home, and when an error was
made on the hit of Herold to third,
both Craig and Beal came home, but
Herold was tagged at the second sta
The .visitors, taking advantage of
the fact that the locals were kidding
a little with them, brought in their
second and last score in the seventh
frame of the battle.
In the eighth inning the represent
atives of the crimson hose registered
up three more runs just for practice
and were assisted by the Krajacek's
in a number of costly errors. Craig

"In the summer of 1888 I had a
very severe attack of cholera morbus.
Two physicians worked over me from
4 a. m. to 6 p. m. without giving me
any relief and then told me they did
not expect me to live; that I had best
teleirraDh for my family. Instead of
doing so, I gave the hotel porter fifty
cents and told him to buy me a bottle
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy, and take no sub
stitute. I took a double dose accord-
in to the directions and went to
sleep after the second dose. At 5

next stopping point, a well man but
