Walter Jenkins, who has been work
ing on a ranch in Montana for some
time, but returned to Murray last
week for a" brief visit, was kicked in"
the neck about 'two months ago, and
the injury received from the blow has
given him a great deal of trouble and
suffering. He was taken to Omaha
Tuesday and after consulting a spe
cialist, he was removed to the Presby
terian hospital, where an operation
was performed when an ulcerated
condition of the cartlages of the wind
pipe was located and removed. The
patient is getting along nicely and
will soon recover from the injury.
Were Near the Wreck.
Rich Smith and Ezra Albin, resid
ing near Union, who were looking
after some business matters in the
western part of the state for a few
days last week, and were returning
east with ten cars of cattle, were in
the Burlington high line last week,
being in the caboose of the train that
struck the one ahead of them. They
had been out near Grant and the cat
tle in their possession on the train
belonged to Cromwell & Smith, none
of which were injured. None of the
passengers were injured on their train
but the head train was a serious
wreck. ' Mr. Albin purchased a quarter

Elmer On His Vacation.
Elmer Hallstrom, the genial assist
ant cashier of the Murray State Bank,

no more. Growing business demands
increased help, and the Murray State
Bank has long outgrown the one man
proposition. Mr. Hallstrom will not

by his many friends in and near Mur
ray, during his two weeks' absence.

OMAHA POLICE ARE AFTER
From Wednesday's Dally.
The activities among automobile
thieves in Omaha in the past few
weeks seems from all reports to have
resulted in at least one and possibly
two Plattsmouth people being stung
on the purchasing of cars that were
stolen. Two of the members of the
Omaha police department were here
today ferreting out as many of the
cars as possible and seem to have lo
cated two, and have several more in
prospect. It seems to have been the
habit of the parties in-Omaha to dis
pose of their cars in nearby towns by
selling them to innocent purchasers
and getting away with the money.
The Omaha officers will endeavor to
discover just how many of the ma
chines have been disposed of in this
city and vicinity.
