Yesterday afternoon about 4:30
while M. S. Briggs was engaged in
some work at his new residence prop
erty on Granite street he was so un
fortunate as to fall and injure him
self in quite a serious manner. Mr.
Briggs was engaged in fixing an elec
trie light wire on the outside of the
house and was working from a scaf
fold which had been extended from
the window in the second story, and
in some manner the board became
loosened and allowed Mr. Briggs to
fall to the ground, a distance of some
fourteen feet, and had it not been for
the fact that it was quite muddy and
the ground soft he probably would
have been even more seriously injured
than he was. The board on which he
had been standing fell in such a man
ner that the end struck him in the
small of the back and inflicted a very
painful bruise and he was badly
"bunged up" as a result of the fall
and experienced great difficulty in get
ting around this morning, being quite
sore and stiff, but as far as can be
discovered there were no bones brok
en. The accident was very unfor
tunate, but it is lucky that Mr. Briirgs
was not more seriously injured.
NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC!

MRS. PHILIP RIHN SUF
FERING FROM THE
EFEGTS OF A FALL
Mrs. Philip F. Rhin is confined to
her home suffering fiom a rather
painful experience which befell her
Tuesday afternoon at her home in the
north part of the city. Mrs. Rhin, af
ter the dinner hour, decided to look
over the attic of the house with a view
of having it fixed up into a living
loom, and as the only means of reach
ing the attic was through a small
hole in the ceiling of the kitchen, she
was compelled to use this, and found
it quite dark and hard to get around
in the small room which constitutes
thu attic. The last she distinctly re
members of the accident was striking
her head on a timber in the roof of
the house, which dazed her somewhat
and caused her to fall, and in doing so
the broke through the lath an 1
plastering and fell to the floor of the
kitchen, where she lay for some time
in an unconscious condition before she
could arouse sufficiently to call as
sistance, and was then placed in bed,
where she has been compelled to re
main since that time. Apparently no
bones were broken, but she has suffer
ed very severe bruifes about the head
and shoulders and it will probably be
several days before she 13 able to be
up and around.

GEORGE W. SHRAOER AND
FAMILY DEPART FOR VIRGINIA
Last evening George V. Shrader,
one of the leading citizens of the east
ern section of this county, in company
with his daughters, Mrs. Frank L.
Rhoden and Mrs. Charles Wolff, as
well as his nephew, Sidney Wimmer,
of Oregon, departed on No. 2 for a
trip that will occupy several weeks,
back to the old home of Mr. Shrader
at Bluefield, Tazewell county, Vir
ginia. This is the first time in many
years that our old friend has visited
his boyhood home in the Old Dominion
and the visit has been one he has been
looking forward to for some time with
much pleasure, and the daughters are
anticipating a most pleasant time in
taking in the sights en route and in
visiting their father's old home in the

In justice to Messrs. Shlaes and
Peterson of the Mid-West Amuse
ment Co., I have a few words to say.
During all the time of the contest
I found Messrs. Shlaes and Petersen
most fair at all times, showing no
preference or partiality, and as far as
I could see, treated all contestants
alike. I fully appreciate the fact that
the Mid-West Amusement Co. were
requested by me and other contestants
to hold back some votesj which was
just as fair to one as to another,
therefore the difference in the an
nouncement on the slide. I now stand
to date, 11,000 votes in the lead, but
owing to the fact that my nearest
competitor has withdrawn, leaving me
the only active contestant in the field,
I am compelled to withdraw also, as it
wouldn't be fair to myself or the Mid-
West Amusement Co. to remain the
only active contestant, as there is no
contest with only' one active contest
ant. I have all the faith and con
fidence in Messrs. Shlaes and Peter
sen and regret very much that such
had to be done, but under the circum
stances there is no alternative, in
order to be fair and just.
I also want to thank my many
friends for their kind assistance in
this contest and fully appreciate the
interest they have shown and taken
in this contest for me. l assure you
your kindness will never be forgotten.
Again thanking you for your many
favors, I remain, respectfully yours,

I WATER COMPANY EXPECT TO
INSTALL NEW HYDRANTS
The Plattsmouth Water company
are preparing to install a new fire
hydrant on lower Main street near the
Burlington subway that can be used
for the protection of buildings in that
section of the city from fire. This
has long been needed as the nearest
hydrant to the Burlington depot and
freight house and yards has been at
Third and Main streets, and in case
of a serious fire this would hardly
prove adequate to supply enough j
water, ihe property in the radius
that can be covered from the new
hydrant is considerable and it is
wise move on the part of the city in
granting the request of the Burling
ton to supply them with the needed

and the ladies belonging to this club
were more than pleased with the
gracious hospitality shown them, and
the event was one that was thorough
ly enjoyed by the members. As is
usual at these gatherings, the time
was spent in plying the busy needle,
as well as social conversation, and
f.ome time was spent in this way. At
a suitable hour the hostess assisted
by her daughters, Mrs. Olga Croscary
and Miss Paula Goos, served a very

MANY LOCAL TENNIS SHARKS

Junior Marshall, Ray Larson, Rev.
II. G. CcClusky, Ben Windham, Rev.

loast four or five more who will enter

close to a dozen from the different
towns throughout the county. It is
hoped that the disagreeable weather
will be over by the time for the
tournament rolls around, but should it
rain the courts will dry quite rapidly.
