FLIRTED WITH GRIM MONSTER
From Tl.ursdn v's Daily.
This morning as A. W. Smith w;
corning down to the city for d
parture for the state fair, he w:
driving along with his car, it mak
ing a little noise and thinking that
the Missouri Pacific train had pass
ed, but which chanced to be a little
late, did not Fee the train approach
ing from the south which is behind
a hill, the train and he. both going
at a fair rate of speed, when look
ing up, it looked as though they
should run together. Mr. Smith
applied the brakes with all their
power, and at the same time shutting
off the engine, but w;is not able to
stop his car. until the front wheel
was in line with the boxes of the
truck of the cars of the train, the
box striking his wheel on the tire
and turning it out of the way.
This was closer than there was
any comfort in. for another foot and
the contact would have been sutli
cient to have drawn the car in which
Mr. Smith was riding in to th-. vor
tex of the whirl of the wheels, n
such a way as to have caused an
accident whose consequences no one
could tell. Fortunate indeed was
Mr. Smith that he was able to .slop
the car at the point where he did.
For a Weak Stomach.
The great relief afforded by Cham
berlain's Tablets in a multitude of

completely restored to health.

But Not So Bad If You Know How to
Reach the Cause.
Nothing more discouraging than
a constant backache. Lame when
you awaken, pains pierce you when
you bend or lift. It's hard to work
or to rest. llarkache often indi
cates bad kidneys. Plattsmouth peo
ple recommend Doan's Kidney Pills.
Kead this care:
Mrs. C. C. liurbridge, Vine St.,
iM;;t ti.inouth. savs: "About five
year ag', my back caused mc a
great deal of misery. It ached most
all the time. After I had taken
Doan's Kidney Pills for a while, my
back felt as strong as ever. Since
then. I have always considered
Doan's fine for backache and kid
ney trouble and have recommended
them to niy neighbors when I have
heard them complaining."
