Will Shryock came near meeting
w ith a severe accident Tuesday morn
ing as he was splitting wood. He was
dnvinjr a wedge into a stick of wood
when his axe glanced and struck his
foot, bruising it badly. lie says it is
a warning to young men not to get up
early in tho morning to cut wood.
We are sorry to learn that Mrs.
Coolov of Cedar Creek met with a se
vere acident a week ago last Sunday
on the way home from church. The
horses were frightened "by the sudden
flight of a prairie chicken and ran,
throwing Mrs. Cooley and the-children
out, and catching up with a wagon
ahead sprang onto the box, throwing
a couple of ladies forward in the box.
The man who was driving, however,
succeeded in stopping the team with
out any fr.rther injury. Mrs. Cooley
was severely injured and has been
confined to her bed since.
The match frame of base ball for
the prize cf a fine ball, as advertised
last week, was played on Saturday
afternoon on the grounds near the
high school, and resulted in the Blue
Stars making nineteen runs, and the
Quick Steps making seventy-seven
runs, thereby carrying off the prize
from their less fortunate but equally
plucky competitors. '
A slight collision took place on Sun
day at the curve on the railroad be
tween here and the landing.
Lincoln avenue is being graded
and fixed up "splinkup." John Shan

see it t'other day.

Dick Streight met w ith an accident
while returning from the convention.
The bridge at Four Mile creek is bad,
and Streight after crossing, left his
team with McElwain while he went
back to see that the teams got across
all right. Ry some means Streight's
team ran backwards off the bridge
and bank and broke hi buggy badly.
One of the horses was also cut some.
The services at the Catholic church
on Sunday were very interesting and
largely attended. The Rt. Rev. James
O'Conncr, assisted by the Rev. Fath
ers Reynolds, Maekien, Greanabaum
and Hayes administered the rite of
confirmation to over forty persons, the
bi.-hop delivering the candidates first
a most instructive and sensible ad
dress on their duties and the privi
leges conferred on them bv this rite.
We are not sufficiently acquainted
with the ritual of the Catholic church
to know exactly what else was done,
except that the pope's blessing was
given by the bishop, being conferred
1 y his pontifical highness on the
good Catholics of Nebraska for their
presentation to him of some $3,000 on
the occasion of the golden anniversary
of his pontificate. In the afternoon
services were held again and the Rev.
Father Greenabaum preached in Ger
man. In the evening Rishop O'Con
nor lectured at Fitzgerald hall and
gave us some new ideas in regard to
the Russian question. Evidently the
hishop doesn't think much of the Rus
sian plea that they made the war to
protect Christians from Turkish bar
barities. THRESHING IN THE WEST.
Carl Sergum, one of the enterpris
ing young men of this county w ho has
been doing a great deal of threshing
throughout this locality, has shipped
his threshing outfit to Gothenberg,
Neb., and will look after the threshing
cf the wheat crop in that part of the
state. He has a large number of con
tracts already fin hand and will be
amply able to give the people of the
western part of the state splendid
service in the way of threshing. Re
ports from that section of the state
are to the effect that the yield of
wheat and oats is quite heavy.
REJOICING AT MOUDOCK HOME.
The birth of a fine little son at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Will Mordock
at Wyoming, Neb., is reported. The
little one arrived on Tuesday, August
loth, and with the mother is doing
nicely. This good fortune that has
befallen the Mordock household will
certainly be most pleasing to the
manv friends of the family in this
city and to the little son will be ex
tended the heartiest best wishes. Mrs.
Mordock was formerly Miss Bertha
Richey of this city.

National Defense Program
TO MAKE U. S. SECOND
Lower IJody Insists on Disagreement
On Several Less Import
Washington, D. C, Aug. 15. Con
gress virtually completed the national
defense program today by finally ap
proving the great increases in naval
construction and personnel written
into the naval bill and urgently sup
ported by the administration.
The house accepted the building
program, to which its conferees on
the measure had refused to agree, by
a vote of 283 to 51, with seven of the
members present not voting. The per
sonnel increases, on which there also
was a disagreement in conference,
were approved without a record vote.
The personnel and construction sec
tions, which already, have the ap
proval of the "senate," authorize an iin-
crease in enlisted men to 74,700 and
the building of 157 war vessels within
the next three years, with four batle
cruisers and four battleships included
among the ships for, 1917. Previously
the house had refused to adopt-a con
tinuing building program, had au

Disagree On Some Points.'
On several less important sections,
including appropriations for improve
ment of navy yards, the house in-
sisted on its disagreement to senate j
increases and voted to send the bill
back to conference for settlement of
these points. An early agreement is
expected, however, and the measure
may be sent to the president for his
signature within a week.
Secretary Daniels issued a state
ment tonight pointing out that the
building authorizations in the bill
were the greatest ever passed in any
country, and would give the United
States, in the opinion of naval au
thorities, the second largest navy in
the world. He declared the measure
"so complete and nearly perfect that
it will stand as a model for all navy
bills for future legislators."
The vote by which the house ac
cepted the senate increase in the
building program was nonpartisan,
the majority of both democrats and
republicans voting in the affirmative.
Of the fifty-one members who voted
in the negative, there were thirty-five
democrats, fifteen republicans and one
socialist, as follows:

fewer criminals in the penitentiary and fewer boys and girls
in industrial schools and reformatories, in case the people of
Nebraska wipe out their Local Option, High License Law and
adopt State PROHIBITION.
Let us see what are the results in Kansas under 35 years of
State PROHIBITION, and what the results are under 35
years of Local Option in Nebraska.
