Thomas was going to the barn
several hours later did she see Mr.
Thomas crawling towards the house.
Then she thought he being on the
ground was trying to hold soins
animal which he had caught, and
when he tried to beckon to her she
approached, not understanding the
conditions. He said "I cannot get
up. I seem to have a. catch in my
leg." She endeavored to assist him
and found that he had a broken leg.
He relapsed into unconsciousness
from which he did not entirely re
turn for sixty hours. Mrs. Thomas,
thought if she had a wheel barrow
she could get him to the house as
she could not carry him. So she
took a large scoop shovel, and sit

injured man to the house, and got
medical attendance. His injuries
were dressed, and he is still in a
very precarious condition.

WHICH IS BEING WAGED BY THE
EIBLE SCHOOLS OF THIS
PLACE TO INCREASE
MEMBERSHIP AND ATTENDANCE
Which Began a Week Ago Has Al
ready Awakened Much
Krom Haturday's Paily.
(By Mrs. E. B. Chappell)
There is a wide-spread movement
sweeping America. It is the "Go to
Sunday School" sentiment which
has as its advocators and followers
many of the big men of the day.
The Bible School has happily pass
ed out of the class where it was
once placed. It is no longer re
garded as a place for women, child
ren and pot rifled saints but rather is
being supported by red-blooded
We wonder some times what good
can come to one through the at
tendance of Sunday School. Is there
anything to be attained? Why go
to Sunday School? Would it not be
ju?t as profitable to spend that hour
in ones own home? .
There are many reasons why one
should attend Bible School but there
are three or four which seem more
persuasive than others. There is
an immense amount of spiritual
satisfaction derived by attending
Sundav School. There is an elevat
ing, brotherly feeling in the atmos
phere which makes one vow he will
henceforth, be a better man, broad
er, man. X feeling of pride and re
sponsibility is gained by the sup
porting of the organization. When
the Sunday School grows into power,
glory is reflected upon each indi
vidual member of the "school.
Taken from the literary stand
point one gains a broader knowledge
of the Bible through class discussion
than by merely reading it. The
great books of the day are filled
with allusions of the Bible and in-
order to enjoy them to the fullest
extent, one must have a thorough
understanding of the particular
story referred to.
The Bible School is a training
school. No other organization offers
such a field for personal develop
ment. Class discussions are of such
informality that even the most timid
venture to make breathless speeches.
Do you need any clothes this fall?
Possibly you de not If yen do, insist on quality

The boy with the "pep," the boy with the
"snap," the boy with the "morale" to carry

you money and trouble in outfitting the boy.

It is in the Sunday School class room
that many of our noted speakers
! made their first talk. After a time
self confidence takes the place of
timidity and the child enters a
larger field of activity.
It is business policy to attend
l Bible School. The community at

One could go on at much length in
enumeration arguments in favor of
Sunday School because looking at it
from every angle it i3 the sensible
thing to go.
SO SAY THOSE WHO HAVE VISIT
ED THE STATE EXHIBITION
From Saturday's Daily.
Phillip Hennings was in the city
last evening with his friends Harry
and Earl Schaefer, sons of John
Schaefer, now living near Creighton
and Mr. Frank Behland, all of who
are visiting at the home of their
friends Mr. Hennings. They were
all at Omaha yesterday seeing the
sights and enjoying a visit and the
day before they spent at Lincoln,
attending the state fair. They all
say that the fair this year was one
of the greatest which the state has
ever had. and the line of exhibits
are more complete in all departments
than heretofore, and also that the
crowds in attendance were great as
well, making the most successful
fair since its beginning.
Joe Seagraves was a visitor in
Omaha for over Sunday going on
the early afternoon train.
Mrs. Fred Ilesner of Omaha who
has been visiting here for some
days past at the home of her par
ents Mr. and Mrs. G. II. Tarns west
of the city, returned home this af
ternoon. Mike Warga, who with his family
have been visiting in this city for
some time, returned to their home
and work at Havelock this after
noon. Mrs. C. L. Creamer departed for
Omaha this afternoon, called there
by the report that their son Robert
Creamer, who is at a hospital where
he was operated upon for appendicit
is was not feeling so well.
