Enjoyed Trip to Colorado.
About a week ago Roy Upton, Jo-
Iseph Everett. David Eaton and Chas.
Row-dish departed for Lincoln coun
ty. Colorado, where they went to
look over the country, and if suit
able thought they might invest in
some of (he wheat raising lands out
there. There is much trading in
the lands of that section, as well a:
in other sections of the state, since!
it has been proven a good wheat pro-'

Has Ribs Broken in Accident
While working in a load of hay,
Raymond Galloway had the misfor
tune to have the load upset, throw
ing him to the ground, infiicting
some very severe injuries, among
which was the breaking of a num
ber of his ribs and otherwise injur
ing him. He is now lying at his
home suffering from the hurts he
received and though showing some
improvements, his condition is far
from good. Dr. Barrett dressed the
injuries of the unfortunate man and
did all possible to alleviate his suf
fering. Mr. Galloway, who is a
firmer, lived on the J. Y. Pitman
HAS A NARROW ES
CAPE FROM DEATH
Arden Rheuman Badly Injured while
Attempting to Stop His Run
away Team Friday.
Last Friday while making an at
tempt to curb his refractory team.
Mr. Arden Rheuman. living west of
the city, met with a very painful ac
cident, aud had a narrow escape
from being killed. He was holding
to his team which was hitched to a
wagon containing a hay rack, in the
streets of Union, when the frighten
ed horses, which were almost in a
frenzy, swung him clear of the rack
onto the ground, in their mad flight,
dashing him against a wagon that
stood in their course, forcing him to
loose his hold on the reins, and
trampling him as well as pulling
the wagon over him. As a result a
bone in his wrist was broken, his
1 chest was bruised, the shoulder liga
ments were torn and his back was
wrenched. His injuries were dress
ed by Dr. Swab and he was taken to
his home, where he is resting as
well as the nature of his injuries
will permit, but still suffering great
ly from the effects of the wounds
which he received. All those who
witnessed the accident, and know of
the conditions under which he was
injured, think it a miracle that the
man got through with his life.

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, SEP

BIG TIME AHEAD.
HISTORIC GALA DAYS CONTINUE
Through Efforts of Live Citizens to
Perpetuate the Occasion Old
Friends to Visit Again.
The citizens of Union, after think
ing of the fact that there would be
a break in the long line of annual
old settlers' reunions if the occasion
was ommitted this year, as was at
first announced, became alarmed
least the practice become obsolete
in future years and got together in
a mass meeting and determined to
continue the time-honored and high
ly pleasing practice of gathering in
the old home town for a meeting
and the renewing of the bonds cf
love and acquaintanceship and ar
ranged to hold the 31st annual re
union on Friday and Saturday, Sep
tember 5th and 6th.
Added to the usual features is a
welcome home to the soldiers that
will be the big feature of the second
day, and special provisions are being
made to accomodate and honor the
valiiant fighters of the community
who have risked their life and limb
in the service of the country. A big
dinner will be provided for all ser
vice men on that day and committees
have been appointed to look espec
ially after their entertainment and
pleasure, as well as the usual com
mittees having in charge the making
of arrangements for the old settlers'
part of the program.
There are committees on speakers,
on music and on amusements.
Among other features already an
nounced there will be an aeroplane
on the grounds to take those who de
sire to go for a trip in the clouds, u
big wrestlinsr match, and interesting
hall games. The Tulene brothers of
Plattsmouth will be on hand with
Omir mprrv-iro-round. and in all
the occasion will be marked with
every opportunity for the enjoyment
of the large number who attend.
Union has a reputation of never
doing things by half and this 31st
annual reunion will be no exception
to the rule. Better plan now to
take a brief respite from labor on
these two days and spend the turn
in whole-hearted enjoyment at the
Picked Nine from Urion Administers
Second Drubbing to the Crack
Team of Sister City.
Union just picked the men up, as
they were attired in the garb of
working men. dressed in blue over
alls, and they dared to go up against
the well trained and immaculately
groomed players of Nehawka. who
were attired to the latest word in
base ball garments. Still, the local
team showed the veterans how the
came of base ball is played.
After having trimmed the Nehaw
ka team to the tune of 5 to 3. a
week or more ago, it was thought
that in the game scheduled for last
Samrdav the Nehawka boys would
put up a better fight and probably
would win over the untrained men
from Union. But not so. In Union
there is strength, and this was sure
lv demonstrated when, in the seventh
inning, each of the Union players
was able Jo circle the bases, mak
ing just nine scores in that one
inning. But little comfort the Ne
lmwka nlavers received from thf
game, when the finals showed Union
14 to Nehawka 4. A large numoer
of the citizens of Union aud vicinity
were in attendance and cheered the
hovs of their home town to do the
wors-t possible to the players of the
game from their cistcr town, inoi
but that the team from Nehawka
can play ball, and good ball, at that.
n6 thrv have demonstrated through
the past season, but the onslought of
the blue overalled players provea
too much for them.
The line-up of the Union team
was as follows: Horace Griffin, c;
John Hoback. ss; Robert Eaton, p;

Do Chickens Pay on
the Average Farm?
T all depends on the farmer. If
they don t pay. If he pays a
a big return for the effort.
There are two things to point to in making poultry raising a success
earlier hatches and more winter eggs.
How can a farmer get them?
First and foremost by having a substantial, air tight, warm, yuntu-.
well ventilated Poultry House. And such a house quickly pays lor
itself with eggs bringing the prices they do now.
White Pine is the best wood for the outside of a poultry house
because it stays where you put it without warping or shrinking or
rotting. It's easy to work and easy on tools.
White Pine farm buildings are permanent. They last a lifetime,
with practically no outlay for repairs.
Our service make building easy and inexpensive. We have plans, specifi
cations and bill of material for the Poultry House shown above or for
any type you may prefer. We will gladly give you an estimate of the cost.
Thatevef your building plans, come in and talk them over with us.
