Some little difficulty was en
countered by the train crew of the
I.cal freight Tuesday when the big
engine became unruly and took a
rot ion to lave the track. It was
necessary to pet the wrecker from
Omaha to pet the engine hack on
the track, and a few hours delay in
the schedule of the crew reaching
their division was the result.

One of the saddest deaths of the

passed away. The remains were
brought here. on the afternoon train,

hour of sorrow.

Unable To Get To Murray.
For the past weeks the publisher
of the Journal has been unable to
make the regular weekly trip to
Murray, owing to (he condition of
roads. Fnder the present help con
ditions in the office we are unable to
be away all day long, and for this
reason we are unable to make the
trip by rail. We are in hopes that
either the roads will improve by
another week or that we may tie able
to secure help that will permit us
making the-trip by rail. We trust
that our readers will hear with us
until we are again in a position to
spend a portion of the day each week
with them for the purpose of gather
ing the news of that community.

OSCAR . MACK RE
TURNS FROM FRANCE
After Ten Months Sen-ice in U. S.
Amy Wounded at Chatteau
Thierry August 27th.
From Wednesday's Daily.
Yesterday Oscar Mack, who went
into the service from here, being sent
to Camp Funston with a large crowd
of other Cass county boys, and who
went from there to Camp Cody and
then overseas, departing from New
port News on July 2Juh, last year,
arrived here and will visit in this
:ity and at Weeping Water, going
'hen to his home in Nebraska City.
He arrived in New York on the re
turn trip March lfith. just ten days
ago. Oscar was in the battle line
but a short time, being wounded at
'hatteau Thierry on August 27th.
Just four weeks and one day after
ie sailed from this side.
The wound is healed and appar
ently his foot is in good condition, al

ing it soon hurts. He will return to
Weeping Water tomorrow, but there

WHERE WE STAND
We stand with Theodore Roose
velt, who. in his last message to the
Arierican people declared:
"Any man who says he is an
.American,' but something else also.
j isn't an American at all. We have
room for but one flag, the American
flag, and this excludes the red flag,
which symbolizes all wars against
liberty and civilization, just as much
j as it excludes any foreign flag of a
(nation to which we are hostile. We

TALKED WHILE THEY
ATE YESTERDAY NOON
Soard of Directors of Commercial
Club Dined at the Wagner Ho
tel Hospital Plans.
Yesterday at iuM'ti the members of
he board of directors of the Commer
cial club met for their noon-day
uiirh at the. Hotel Wagner, where
hey boih ate to their heart's con
ent and talked more than some of
our relatives at a -.juilting. They be
ran with the hospital matter and
nded on the matter of telephone ser
vice at the Burlington station, touch
ng other points in their course.
Relative to the first subject they
iiscussed ways and means of get
ing out to the towns which have
losmtals and observing how they
ecu red them and operate them suc
essfolly. The matter of the city band came
up' for considerable attention, but
s the club has no funds which it
:an appropriate, they concluded the
et way would he to go after the
natter of raising money outside of
he club. They also concluded to
extend a recommendation to the City
"ouncil that they include in their
year's budget appropriating a suffici
ent amount to defray the expenses
f the band.
Another mutter coming up for con
sideration was the telephone service
it the Burlington station, where it
often imnossible to get anyone on
he line. This could happen easily
enough, when the operator could be
taking a train order, the agent and
expressman at t lie train, and the as
sistant agent and cashier at the
ticket window. The conditions arc
such as to make the kind of service
some people would demand difficult

TORIOUS HEROES WHO BROKE
New York, March 25. Victorious
veterans, heroes of Flanders fields
on which Prussian pride was broken.
26,000 men of the 27th division
came back to Fifth avenue today for
their triumphal review. To the

the full measure of their pride. The

The multitude which alternately
laughed and wept, cheered or stood
silent as the procession passed knew
that a grateful people never paid

Crowd Estimated at 3.000.C00.
Even New York famed for its
c rowds, never had mobilized so many
men women and children along a

were added hundreds of thousands

more had come from other states.

H. 000. 000 persons were packed into
five miles of Fifth avenue in the
sunshine of a perfect day. The side
walks on both sides were choked
with humanity and at every inter
secting street the crowd bulged out
east and west for a distance of a
block. Every open space was packed
with an immovable mass of human
ity. Stretching along the east side of
Central park, from one end to the
other,, was a grandstand, 2i miles
long. In it were some 60.000 rela
tives of the Twenty-seventh. The
other 15,000 seats were filled with
wounded soldiers from the army
hospitals, federal officials, governors
of this and other states, members of
the egiislature, mayors and official
delegations from uptsate cities.

but a short time, died. The re

ABOUT THE SAME
The condition of Mrs. Eliza Kauf
ruann who is sick at her home in
this city, and where she has been
confined to her bed with bronchial
pneumonia for some time, is that
she is just, about the same as she
has been, but in some appearances is
some brighter and it is hoped that
she soon may show improvement.
