few minutes had- four of tkh young
cr.es cagiye. The wolves . were ,6f
pretty god-;sif,e and the gentlemen
are quite 'pfeated with their capture
as it will probably result in ridding
that locality of a nuisance . of the
worst tirid. So far the old' wolves
have not been captured, but every
effort will be made to land them and
rid the community of the prowlings
of the animals around the farms ' in.
that locality, where they did" a great
deal of mischief in the last few
months. Only a few days ago one of
the animals visited the farm of Mr.
Stava and carried away a full-grown
chicken, and they had become so bold
as to come right up in the farm yard
in broad daylight, so that the finding
of their den is pleasing in the ex
treme to the residents along the river

J. R. RUMMERFIELD INVENTS
-AN AUTOMOBILE 'DIRECTOR
From Friday's Dally.
J. R. Rummerfield of this city has
joined the field -of inventors by his
perfection of a course" indicator for
the auto driver which seems to fill
a long-felt want. This, little device
consists of an arrow. which is placed
on the front of the dash of an auto
mobile and by pressing a button on
the door the arrow points in the way
the driver of the automobile intends
to turn, and,, being visible from the
back, permits the .driver of a machine
following to learn just what way the
machine intends to turn, saving time
as well as the danger of. accidents
and collisions. Mr. Rummerfield has
perfected the device and intends to
have a .number of them made at once
as soon as he receives his patent and
installed on automobiles here, that a
practical working may be secured
from the device. If it proves as suc
cessful as hoped for it certainly looks
as though "Bud" has secured some
thing good that will find a ready sale.

A PARTY HERE FROM
THE OIL REGIONS NEAR
From Saturday's Dally.
An automobile party ot oil pros
pectors and others from Union were
in the city yesterday afternoon for a
few hours and the party was under
the charge of Attorney C. L. Graves,
as guide, and they spent a short time
here looking after a few matters in
regard to the oil well work near
Union. In the party were Lon Deit
rich, the owner of the well drilling
outfit, as well as ''Curley" Robinson
and Dick Dickson, two of the expert
drillers, who have been" engaged in
the work at that place. Ellis LaRue
and George Stites, the liveryman,
accompanied the party to this city.
The work on the oil well has been
prosecuted until a depth of 700 feet
was reached, when some of the well
boring apparatus was covered up in
the weil ami made it necessary to
replace it with other machinery, and
this has delayed the advancement of
the work quite a great deal, but seems
to have been overcome, and the oper
ations will be resumed in a very
short time. The residents of Union
and vicinity aie very optimistic as to
the possibilities of striking oil in the
drilling operations, which are being
carried out near the Missouri river,
five miles east of that place. It is to
be hoped that the ambitions of the
Union people can find a realization
in a great flowing 'oil or gas well,
adding to the great natural wealth
of this county.
When riding on. a country road,
, Near a crossingat a grade,
You hear a distant whistle blow
And know why the sound is made
AH who hear the warning given
Must expect to find
An engine coming down the line
And a train of cars behind.
Can't the engineer stop it?
Why, yes, after & while,
But it takes a .little distance,
Say, "bout half a mile.
Don't give your car more gasoline,
Or whip up.ypur "old hoss," .
A lid taie a chance of getting hit,
To beat the train across.
For if it ever hits you,
Well I've only this to say:
"There'll be joy in heaven,"
Or, "There'll be the devil to pay.

rain of last Wednesday night, having
some forty acres of his corn washed

a task . for the farmers to replan
their corn. West, in and near Eight
Mile Grove, the rain reached over 1
large area, and in this section most
of the farmers suffered a great dea
from the storm. This was undoubt
cdiy the heaviest storm of the season
throughout this portion of the state
and from Otoe county comes stories

different parts of that county.

...The friends of Mr. P. E. Ruffner,
one of the oldest, residents and. demo
cratic candidate for county assessor
ivill regret greatly to learn of his
serious condition, aS a result of which
he was taken to Omaha yesterday
afternoon at 4:15 to undergo an X-ray
examination as ' to the condition of
his jaw. Mr. Ruffner had been suf
fering from toothache for . severa
days, and Tuesday had one of the

the pain he was suffering, but shortly
after the extraction of the tooth his
condition became much worse and for
the past few days he has not been
able to open his mouth or take food
the ailment resembling somewhat
that of lockjaw. It was decided that
the best way would be to have an
X-ray examination made to deter
mine the cause of the trouble and, if
possible, give the patient some relief
It is to be hoped that the examination
will discover the cause of the afflic
tion and that it will be possible to
relieve our old friend from his suf
