come out and hear this gifted orator.
George Ray and wife and Frank
Grauf and wife and daughter, Miss
Emma, of near Murray who have
been enjoying a visit several miles be
low Burlington Junction, Mo., have
returned home and were much pleased
with the outing. The trip was made
by auto and was without a mishap of
any kind and one of the most com
plete enjoyment as the route was
along the excellent roads of that local
itj While in Missouri the party were
the guests of Joe and Ernest Mont
gomery and it is stated that they
showed their hosts something about
playing cards. Frank states that a
series of games of pitch were staged
to settle the question of the supre
macy of Nebraska or Missouri and in
this the Nebraska boys proceeded to
show the Missouri lads most success
fully and got away with the honor of
winning the series.
i esterday a very serious runaway
occurred south of the city in the vi
cinity of Murray, that resulted very
seriously for John Lowther, one of
the leading farmers residing south of
this city. Mr. Lowther had been at
Murray to convey his son-in-law, Bei t
Root, there to catch a train, and was
bound for his home when the runaway
occurred. As Mr. Lowther was driv
ing along near the farm of Oscar
Gapen, an automobile passed him.
when the team became frightened and
started to run and, being a very high-
spirited team, soon got beyond control
of Mr. Lowther and tore madly along
the road, demolishing the buggy as
they ran. When near the farm of
D. A. Young the team completely de
molished the buggy and Mr. Lowthi-r
was hurled among the wreckage of
the vehicle. Aid was soon on the
scene and Dr. B. F. Brundel sum
moned from Murray, and on examina
tion it was found that Mr. Lowther
had suffered the loss of the scalp
from one side of his head and was
apparently suffering from a fracture
of the skull. He was brought by
automobile to this city and after :i
consultation it was decided to removt
him to the Presbyterian hospital in
Omaha, where he was hurried, and at
9 o'clock last night the injured head
was operated on. At last reports, re
ceived today, the victim of the run
away was reported as resting as easily
as possible, but owing to the serious
nature of the injuries it is feared it
will be some time before he will lie
out of danger.

, The first dry meeting of the fall
campaign was held in this city Sat
urday evening at the corner of Fifth
and Main streets where the band
stand was stationed and from which
the speaker of the evening, Attorney
C. A. Rawls, delivered 'his address in
advocacy of the adoption of the pro
hibition amendment to the constitution
of the state. A number of school
children were seated on the platform
and gave a number of the campaign
songs of the dry forces including
"Dry Clean Nebraska," and other se
lections which have been used quite
extensively by the adherents of the
prohibition cause. Mr. Rawls in his
remarks pointed out the betterment
that would follow the adoption of the
prohibition amendment. The address
was litstened to by a large number of
the workers in the prohibition and
considering the numerous other at
tractions going on in the city drew a
very satisfactory crowd. It is the in
tention of the dry federation of the
county to hold these meetings each
Saturday evening from now until
election and speakers and workers
from all sections of the county will be to participate in the meetings and
in that manner divide the work be

Catarrhal Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure catarrhal deafness,
and that is by a constitutional remedy.
Catarrhal Deafness is caused by an in
flamed condition of the mucous lining of
the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or im
perfect hearing, and when it is entirely
closed. Deafness is the result. Unless the
inflammation can be reduced and this tube
restored to its normal condition, hearine
will bs destroyed forever. Many cases of
deafness are caused by catarrh, which la

Does the Open Saloon Produce Prosperity?
Does Regulations Regulate the Open Saloon?
Practically every court in the United States, with one accorcJ, have answered these
questrons. Below are given the answers from a few of the Courts of the several
States and the United States Supreme Court:
JSupreme Court of Illinois, says: r
"Wo presume do one would have the hardihood to contend that the retail sale of
intoxicating drinks does not tend, in a large degree, to demoralize the community, to
foster vice, produce crime and beggary, want and misery."
Schwuchow v. Chicago. C8 111. 444
Supreme Court of Iowa, says:
"An enumeration of all the evils arising from the use of intoxicating liquors nee'l
not be attempted. They are numerous and affect the people collectively and in
dividually. Idleness, poverty, pauperism, crime, insanity, disease, and the destruction
of human life, follow indulgence in the habit of using intoxicating drinks. Millions of
our fellow-countrymen are addicted to this habit, and of these, millions become drunk
ards. Homes are broken up and domestic peace is destroyed by drunkenness. The
prisons, almshouses, and institutions for the care of orphans, insanity and afflicted, are
largely filled by the vice." "Thinking men of this day concur in the opinion that the in
fluence of saloon, and the idelness and vice of the multitude of its clientage, constitute the
great peril of American institutions. We think none will deny that nothing but evil
flows from this source." Pearson v. International Distillery, 72 la. 348
Supreme Court of Indiana, says:
"The evils which attend ancj inhere in the business of handling and selling intoxi
cating liquor are universally recognized, and the danger therefrom to the peace and
good order of the community everywhere necessitates the exercises of the police power."
Schmidt v. City, 80 N. E. G.'!2
Supreme Court of the United States, says:
"By the general concurrence of opinion of every civilized and christian communi
ty, there are few sources of crime and misery to society equal to the dram shop, where,
intoxicating liquors in small quantities, to be drunk at the time are sold indiscriminately
to all parties applying. The statistics of every State show a greater amount of crime and
misery attributable to the use of ardent spirits obtianed at these retail liquor saloons
than to any other source." Crowley v. Christensen, 137 U. S. 86
