Worry Over Giving Up Farm Life
and Son Going to War Assign
ed as Cause of Act
J'roni Thursday's Daily.
About eight o'clock Monday morn
ing. John Coppie, aged about sixty
live years and residing in Wabash,
vent to milk, ami some time later
the wife, thinking he was staying
an unusually long time, went to in
vestigate, whereupon she found her
husband with his throat cut so deep
ly that the wind pipe was entirely
t'opplo had been a farmer, was
fairly successful and had amassed
sufficient property to insure living
in plenty the balance of his life.
As he had attained to a ripe old age,
he concluded to move to town and
having two sons, both married, but
one com ins within the draft age,
and so situated as to be called for
service, he sold the old homestead
-and moving to Wabash but a short
time since, taking with him among
other things a cow to assist in keep
ing up the home needs and down the
His relations in Ihe home were
Pkh!. with nothing to complain of
whatever, having goil health and
r.o fi'.Kinciil troubles to worry about.
The thought of having to give up
farm life after these many years to
Mther with that of his son being
called to the service, are assigned
as the cause for his rash act.
V.'hen the wife found him in the
condition as stated, she secured help
and had the unfortunate man re
moved to the house and with prompt
medical assistance he was saved
from bleeding to death, as the jugu
lar veins had not been severed, nor
had the arteries.
It was thought for a time that
Lis life might be saved, but compli
cations ensued ami he grew worse,
showing no rallying power from the
effects of the shock to his system
Consequently, as a result, he died
Tuesday evening at his 'home.
Mr. t'opple slipped the razor with
which he had been accustomed to
shaviii? himself into his pocket; the
morning of ihe deed, just before he
s-tartod out to milk, and he had
milked about half an inch in the before he made the attempt to
lake his life.
The blood stained razor was found
where lie hail dropped it after saw
irg away until the windpipe had
been severed in twain, but the ar
teries and veins, being imbedded a
little deeper, were not reached, thus
preventing him from dying instant
ly I rum loss of blood.
Mr. (Vpple was ever a first class
t-iiizeu. a good neighbor and a hard
working farmer who' made his voca
t ion pay, and it is deeply to be re
grettcd that anything preyed so up
on his mind as to render him tin-
accountable to such an extent that
lie should take his own life.

The time of year has come for the
planting of gardens and the Journal
would impress upon its readers the
advisability of looking well to this
important matter- Every one who
has any available ground should
utilize it for productive purposes.
With the advent Sunday of the new-
daylight savings bill, whereby the
clocks will be turned ahead an hour,
no one will labor so late but what
he will yet have time to work in
his garden by daylight and he should
by ail means do so. "We ..can't all
fight the enemy from the trenches,
but we can help to defeat them by
saving, conserving and producing
and of the three the last is as great
as the others. Let every man and
every woman, boy and girl put his or
her shoulder squarely against the
wheel and push. This is not a time
for drones, neither is it for any who
are out of sympathy with the ends
sought to be attained and true pa
triotism will reap its reward as well
as other virtues of manliness and
womanliness, of which" this is by no
means the smallest.
From Thursday's Daily.
The total of the sale of Thrift and
War Savings Stamns sold and pledg
ed in plattsmouth up to the present
time amount to something over
$30,000. Of this sum, on the even
ing of the drive the Parochial school
was able to announce pledges for
$1,545 worth, while all the other
schools was a trifle over $21 000
worth of these securities.
The above is a very credible show
ing for Plattsmouth, when it is con
sidered that -a large portion of the
population is made up of working
people, who labor by the sweat of
their brow for their daily bread and
who are really not able in these
times of high priced everything, to
invest a very large amount in these
securities, ' however gilt-edged they
might be as an investment. It is
such staggering totals, made possi
ble through liberal pledging on the
part of these people, that furnishes
a concrete example of what true pa
triotism really is- (
The large percentage of those in
vesting in this drive was made up of
working men and women, and in
some instances the purchase was
really a sacrifice on their part. It
isn't always the largest investor or
giver who is the most patriotic at
If I Were a Farmer.
If I were a farmer I would keep at
hand l few reliable medicines for
minor ailments that arc not so ser
ious as to require the attention of a
physician, such as Chamberlain's
Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy for
bowel complaints.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for
coughs, colds and croup
Chamberlain's Liniment for
.sprains, bruises and rheumatic pains.
Chamberlain's Tablets for stomach
troubles, biliousness and constipa
tion. By having these articles at hand
it would often save the trouble of a
trip to town in the busiest season or
in the night, and would enable me
to treat slight ailments as soon as
they appear, and thereby avoid the
more serious diseases that so often
Hindenburg is Developing an Attack
Northward in the Arras Re
gion as Next Move.
London, March" 2 S. In the lao
twenty-four hours the Germans hav
made but one comparatively trifling
gain as the result of numerous mass
ed attacks along the whole front,
says Reuter's correspondent at Brit
ish headquarters. For the British
there may be claimed several dis
tinct local successes, either in com
pletely repelling enemy blows or in
wresting back ground won by coun
ter attacks.
Although the Germans continue
to use their infantry with ruthless
prodigality, the general pressure
along the front is for the moment
less determined. This may be at
tributed in part to the enemy wait
ing to bring up heavy. artillery prep
aratory to another great effort, and
in part to exhaustion.
British Taking Prisoners
London. March 2S. Prisoners
and machine guns have been captur
ed by the British, the war office an
nounces. The lighting continues
fiercely on both banks of the Somme
This morning the enemy opened
a heavy bombardment on the Brit
ish defenses east of Arras. An a
tack is developing i:i this sector.
Repeated attacks were made by
the enemy along the valley of the
Somme in the neighborhood of Beai-mont-llamel,
Pruisieux and Mayon-
neville. They were repulsed.
The reference in the official
British statement to an attack east
of Arras evidently means that the
Germans have widened their battle
front and are delivering a new and
great offensive stroke on the north
The battle was begun last week on
a front extending as far north as
the river Scarre. the junction of
which with the battle line is almost
due east of Arras. No fighting north
of the river has been reported.
The attacks which are developing
today mark the beginning of a sec
ond phase of the battle. German
military writers in the last few days
have been hinting that surprises
were, in store for the' British and
there has been much discussion of
the possibility of a German drive for
the coast with the channel ports of
Calais and Dunkirk as the objec
The statement follows:
"Severe fighting took place again
yesterday evening and during the
night astride the Somme and north
ward, from Albert to Boyelles. Re
peated attacks were made by the en
emy along the valley of the Somme,
and in the neighborhood of Beau
mont-llamel, Pruisieux and Moyen
neville. They were repulsed. We
captured a number of prisoners and
a number of machine guns.
"The fighting is continuing most
fiercely on both banks of the river
"This morning the enemy opened
a heavy bombardment on our de
fenses east of Arras and an attack
is developing in this sector."
From Thursday- Daily.
Ill the eyes of many, who profess
to know, the prospect looks good for
a long fight ahead of us before the
war is ended. Even though the
present drive of Germany may fail,
as we have reason to-believe it will,
if the kaiser can prevent internal
dissention in the Fatherland, the
armies entrenched in allied soil may
hang on for a long time. If so, we
will have to furnish more men, more
ships and more food and now is the
time to give heed to these requisites
and more especially to the latter.
The crying need of Europe is for
food stuffs and we are the one nation
looked to to furnish it.

Tuesday evening the Woodman
Circle held their regular meeting in
the M. W. A. hall. - The attendance
was not as large as it usually is,
owing to the fact that so many mem
bers are also members of the Red
Cross, they answering to the call
"Duty Before Pleasure" and were
absent on account of the Red Cross
It was our pleasure to have with
us Supreme Clerk Miss Dora Alex
antler from Omaha. In her remarks
to the Grove she expressed her de
light in hearing that our Grove had
purchased fifty dollars worth of War
Savings Stamps, saying that we
were the first in the state to tlo so.
Among many other good and instruc
tive suggestions Miss Alexander men
tioneu that we might organize a
Woodman Circle Auxiliary of the
Red Cross, same as they have in
Omaha, and the public may well ex
pect some active action from this
Grove tii the near future.
Quoting Miss Alexanders words
you may well be proud of your local
deputy Mrs. Droege who is untiring
in her efforts in securing members.
and never like now, has the need for
protection len more keenly felt.
After the business meeting a short
time was spent in a social way.

Washington, March 28. Stirred
by charges in the senate of delays
in the aircraft program, the senate
military committee this afternoon
summoned Major General Squier and
Colonel Deeds of the signal corps in
charge of aircraft production and
Howard Coffin, chairman of the air
craft board, to appear immediately.
Washington, March 28. Charges
that German spies were responsible
for this country's failure to keep up
in its airplane program were made
in the senate today by Senator Over
man, democrat of North Carolina. He
also charged that there were spies in
the Curtiss plant.
"If I were secretary of war I would
commandeer the Curtiss plant and
put out every man employed there
and hire Americans in their places,
declared Senator Overman.
Senator Overman declared spies
took metal braces and sawing them
in two, joined the pieces with lead
and then uainted over. The first
Bristol machine tried fell. An in
vestigation disclosed the defect.
Many other pieces also had been
tampered with and as a result the
building of Bristol machines was de
laved two months while inspectors
and government agents went over
and closely examined the various
parts to replace tampered pieces.
400,000 Spies.
Senator Overman stated it . had
been said there are 100,000 German
spies in this country but he believed
there were 400,000. He said he was
making no charge against any em
ploye of the Curtiss plant but assert
ed that some of their names sound
un-American and added that "we do
know that -spies are in the plant and
that they have delayed the delivery
of machines."
Mr. Overman announced that his
information had been obtained from
a detective whose name he intended
giving to Chairman Chamberlain of
the senate mlitary committee so that
he and others can be summoned be
fore the military committee.
