CLOSE TO A VERY
Harrison Gayor Struck in the Eye
With Automobile .
From Monday's Iaily.
Harrison Gayor, residing south of
this city, near old Rock Bluffs, came
very near meeting with a serious
accident in this city yesterday.
He had been experiencing . some
little difficulty with his automoible,
and in some manner the crank be
came fastened in the car with the
engine attached to the high gear
equipment of the machine and he
was unable to release it. He took
the machine to one of the garages
in the city, and in turning the
engine over in order to release the
crank the engine started and the
crank struck him a terrific blow in
the eye. For a time it was thought
the young man's eye was so serious
ly injured that he would be blind,
but in company with Waldemar
Soennichsen he was hurried to a
specialist in Omaha, where after the
proper treatment the sight was
promised good, and the injury would
be restored in a short time.
It was sure a very close call from
a serious accident, and the young
man can congratulate himself that
it was no worse.

DELIVERY OF A
AN HYEAULIC BUTTER CUTTER
TOR FAIRMONT CO. TAKEN
TO CITY IN TRUCK.
MANUFACTURED BY HOME FIRM
Second of An Order of Several to
be Delivered to Better Mak
ers at an Early Date.
From Saturday's P'.iily.
Yesterday afternoon the Western
Machine works of this city delivered
to the Fairmont Creamery company,
of Omaha one of their new hyrau
lic butter , cutting machines, the
company sending one of their trucko
down to this city after the samo.
While this particular machine is a
new model, bein the second one
made by the L. C. Sharp Mlg.
Co., the Fairmont Creamery eom
;;j!iy has one of the earlier models,
designed and made by Mr. Sharp a
r.r.mbcr of years a. now in opera
tion on their floor and it has given
ruch excellent satisfaction that they
v ere ready at all times to accept a
'uicr and more efficient model just
r, soon as, the L. C. Sharp Mi'g.
Co., was ready to deliver them
This machine i; not only aluio.-t
iiidispensihle in the cutting and
limping of butter i:; any desired siz
tikes or packages, but can be used
in the cutting and shaping up of
: japs or any other article mauu-
r-.-.ctured of a like nature, and at the
present time there seems to be a
wonderful demand for this particu
lar model or one that will do the
:;uie work that can and will be
:; a:n;fartured under thu present pat -eut.s
rf the L. C. Sharp Mfg. Co..
They have had letters of iiujuiry
tri.m many of the large butter mak
ers and soap makers from all over
the country, in regard to the new
b.itter cutter and all seem interest
ed to the extent of installing one as
.ckoi as delivery can be made.
A person might get the idea that
!'..is machine is a small item when
.-. e sti-.tc that it was delivered t .i
Omaha in a truci.. but not so, as it
was about all this little chug wag
on wanted to haul, weighing just an
even L'.nOO pounds and was about a.-
perfect a lookinc piece of machinery
as we have ever seen, designed and
carried to its completion by skilled
!.iec h allies in every department.
This is but one of the numerous
machines now being manufactured
by the L. C. Sharp M fg. Co., and
it certainly should be a pleasure t.i
every citizen of Plattsniouth to see
and know that such machinery is
being manufactured in our city.

RECEIVES DRAFT TO
COVER ALL DAMAGES
rom PatiinTav'R Dally.
Mr. E. A. Lorenz has just receiv
ed a draft from the Pennsylvania
Insurance Co., in settlement of a
loss in his dwelling house. The
damage to the house was caused by
a limb of a tree blowing down and
Tailing across the roof of the house.
This happened in a recent storm
which caused quite a little damage
The amount which he received
though small covers the actual cost
of the repairs which it was neces
sary to make. Mr. Lorenz greatly
appreciates the promptness with
which Mr. Sayles the local agent,
handled the matter and feels well
satisfied concerning it.
ALLEGED STILL IS LOCATED.
Hog Feeder Insists He Was Only

The vicinity of Sargent has been
considerably stirred up during the
past week by the arrest and subse
quent dismissal of C. E. Freeman on
the charge of having liquor in his
place of business in Sargent and by
the report of the finding of an al
leged illicit still on his farm some
twenty miles west of Sargent. The
facts in the case seem to be about
C. E. Freeman conducts a restau
rant in Sargent and the rumor
gained circulation that liquor of
some kind could be found in his
place of business. Marshall ber
nethy made a search and confiscat
ed two jugs containing a liquid
rubstance. Following this com
plaint was filed against Freeman in
the justice court at Sargent. Later
on the town marshal and Bob
Prit chard made a trip to the Free
man farm which resulted in the
state authorities sending State
Agent S. M. Melick, of Lincoln, to
Sargent to investigate further. On
Tuesday night of last week Mr.

Pritchard, of Sargent, went to the
Freeman farm. They returned to

It seems that the Freeman farm
is located in the hills in the vicinity
of Milbourn. The only inhabitant
of the place is a man by the name
of Wright, who came here from
Missouri and who is farming the
land and feeding a bunch of hogs.
The alleged still was located in a
new addition to the granary on the
barn. Inside of this building the
parties found some six or eight
kegs and barrels full or partly full
of liquor, also some empty jugs
ranging from one to three gallons
in size. This building also contain
ed a cooking vat. evidently suitable
for boiling grain or hog feed, a
washing machine and wrincer, some
muslin cloths, some charcoal, some
half-inch pipe, a bucket, a dipper,
etc. Outside the building was some
boiled grain, evidently suitable for
The occupant of the place stout
ly proclaimed that the building was
used solely for the preparation of
feed for hogs. The officers claim
that circumstances are a little un
usual by reason of the extreme
cleanliness of the premises and the
fact that the room in which the hog
feed was in course of preparation
was securely locked, both inside and
Samples of the liquid were secured
for analysis and photographs were
taken of the surroundings. The
trial of Freeman on the charge of
having liquor iu his place of busi
ness was dismissed by the county
attorney owing to insufficient proof
Uiat the seizure at the restaurant
was alcoholic liquor. Since that
time. County Attorney Schaper has
received information that the sample
of liquor from the restaurant taken
by State Agent Melick to Lincoln for
analysis contained 17. S per cent al
cohol. This is where the case
stands at this time and as yet no
further steps have been taken.
The affair has created an unusual
amount of interest in the north part
of the county and especially in the
vicinity of Sargent where Mr. Free
man has lived for a long term of
years. It must be admitted that
boiled grain makes mighty good
hog feed and that charcoal is a well
known diet for hogs. The outcome
of the case if further complaint is
filed will be watched with consider
able inteerst. Broken Bow Chief.
