E OLD STORY
TOLD OVER AGAIN
Automobile Attempts to Cross the
Track in Front of Oncoming En
gine. One Man Killed.
This afternoon another automobile
accident was added to the long list of
those in the past few weeks, when
one man was killed and another in
jured at the Missouri Pacific crossing
in Union.. The man killed was C. W.
Wilson, and a letter on his person
gave his address as St. Louis. The
injured man was William Shriner, who
resides in the vicinity of Dunbar, in
Otoe county. The two men were rid
ing in a Ford car and Shriner was
driving, and they came down the main
street of Union about 1:30 this after
noon, at a rate of speed estimated at
between forty and fifty miles an hour.
While running at this rate of speed
the car was rushed on the railroad
crossing just as a freight engine
which was engaged in switching came
from the north and struck the car,
demolishing it and mangling Wilson
in such a manner that he died at 2:f0
from the injuries. The engine had
been switching at Union for some
time when the accident occurred, and
was in the north part of the yards
coming down just as the automobile
at its high rate of speed came onto
the crossing, and struck the car with
great force. Wilson was injured in
a terrible manner, having his ribs
broken and sustaining severe inter
nal injuries, from which he died about
an hour after the acicdent occurred.
The dead man was apparently about
50 years of age, and a stranger in
Union, and in the condition of Shriner
it was impossible to learn much of
his identity beyond the letter that was
found on his person.
WESTLEY BURNETT TAKEN
TO HOSPITAL AT OMAHA
Wesley Burnett, one of the old resi
dents from south of the city was
taken to Omaha this morning where
he will be placed in one of the hospitals
there for treatment and an operation
if necessary. Mr. Burnett has been
suffering from stomach trouble for
sometime and his condition has become
such that it was necessary to have
him taken to the hospital. While the
condition of Mr. Burnett is very seri
ous it is hoped that the operation may
be successful in giving him relief from
his sufferings. County Commisioner
Julius Pitz accompanied Mr. Burnett
to the hospital and will see that he is
placed in the hospital.

TIGHER ENTERTAIN FRIENDS
Mr. and Mrs. Fritz Tigner, residing
four and a half miles west of Murray,
entertained a number of relatives and
friends in a most delightful manner
at their pleasant country home, Sun
day, August 27th. The occasion was
in honor of Mrs. Laura C. Garreon
and daughter, Miss Carmen, mother
and sister of Mrs. Tigner, and Miss
Nora Peeler, all of Bartlett, la., who
have been visiting at the Tigner home
for the past few days. At the noon
hour the jolly company were invited
to the dining room, where a most ex
cellent three-course dinner, and one
which the hostess only, knows best
how to prepare, was served and to
which all did ample justice. The aft
ernoon hours were very pleasantly
spent in social conversation, inter
spersed with music and various other
amusements, there being a number of
pictures taken of the guests. At a late
hour the guests bid their hostess good
bye and departed for their homes, de
claring them to be splendid entertain
ers. Those in attendance were: Mr.
and Mrs. Henry Tigner, Miss Matilda
Brandt of Plattsmouth, Mr. and Mrs.

Now that Fall is near it's time to think
of that new Range. Don't put it off another
year, you can't afford to.
Of course 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-tight in
every joint. But. it's not made tight with stove

ANOTHER OLD PIONEER
OF CASS COUNTY HERE
From Wednesday's Dally.
Among the old pioneers of Cass
county to visit in Plattsmouth during
hist week was William Leesky, of
Greenwood. Mr. Leeslev came to Cass
ccur.ty on Ju tj S, 1851), and for a
ir-Tiber of jvavy was engar;e.! in
freighting across the plains, which oc
t unrtion was then beset whh many
d-mgers and perils from the Indians,
and the experiences of thU splendid
old citizen during these years was at
times very startling. After four
years of the freighting business Mr.
Leesley engaged in other occupations,
and in 18G8 located on a homestead
near Greenwood, where he has since
resided. He enjoys his visits to Platts
mouth very much and was greatly
pleased with the Home Coming and
fall festival during his stay in the
city. He met a number of the other
eld residents of this locality while
here and this brought many reminders
of the good old days.
