JACOB MILLER KILLED
AT MANLEY TUESDAY
BY A M. P. TRAIN
Yesterday morning, Jacob Miller,
who for the past few years has con
ducted a livery barn at Manley, met
death when he was struck by the
north bound Missouri Pacific passen
ger train a few miles north of Man
ley. Mr. Miller had been engaged in
mowing weeds along the right-of-way
of the railway, previous to the acci
dent that resulted in his death, and
it would seem that he was struck by
the train while endeavoring to pre
vent his team from getting on the
track and in the way of the oncoming
train. The team had been driven to
one side and were very restless and
hard to control and Mr. Miller in
quieting their efforts to get away was
thrown or fell backwards just as the
train travelling at a good rate of
speed came by and hurled him to one
side resulting in his death almost in
stantly. The unfortunate man was
struck about the head and shoulders
but was not badly disfigured by the
accident and the blow on his head
which resulted in his death was ap
parently a most severe one. The ac
cident occurred about 10:00 o'clock
and at once the authorities were noti
fied and came from Eagle where they
were looking into the death of Hugh
Spangle at that place. Coroner J. F.
Brendel summoned a jury and an in
quest was held fixing the cause of the
death of Mr. Miller at being struck by
a train but releasing the railroad com
pany from responsibility in the mat
ter. Mr. Miller was married and
leaves a wife and two children, all
residing at Manley. Mr. Miller was
a man of about fifty years of age
Now that Fall is near it's time to think
of that new Range. Don't put it off another
year, yon can't afford to.
C.J the old range will hang to
gether another year but what's the use? It's
eating its head off every day that you continue
to use it. Its stove putty is gone long ago its
joints are open and that means waste.
Suppose you could cut your fuel bills in
half how long would it take to pay for a new
range with what you save?
Well, that's just what a MONARCH
Range would do. That is a fact and the reason
is because a MONARCH Range is air-tipht in
every joint. But it's not made tight with stove
putty like your present range was when new.
MONARCH Ranges are riveted tight. The iron is Malleable Iron,
that means unbreakable.
That's how these joints can be riveted while the hammering
that builds a MONARCH would smash the grey iron castings of a
common range into a thousand pieces. It's all a question of Rivets
vs. Stove Putty. Which kind of Tightness do you want in your Range?
Get the booklet "Rivets vs. Stove Putty" and learn why the MON
ARCH is superior to other ranges.
Come in and let us show you.
