little fellow, who was scalded an 1
crushed underneath the auto of his
parents Wednesday evening when
thev were coming home from Louis
ville. Mf. and Mrs. Sheilhorn were driv
ing home from a shopping trip to
Louisville and were going at a good
rate of speed, when near the home
of Andrew Stohlman they saw tw
calves, on opposite sides of the road.
The first calf essayed to cross the
road, causing Mr. Sheilhorn to di
vert the car in order to avoid strik
ing it. At the same time one of his
tires blew out, and turning into the
road again he tore the remaining
tire off that side of the cur. Then
the second calf attempted to cro?s
the road ahead of him and was hit
by the still fast moving auto. The
force of the impact, together with
the Mat tires, caused the car to turn
over and pinning all the occupants
underneath. The radiator was brok
en in the collission, allowing the hot
water to escape onto Mrs. Sheilhorn
and the deceased baby, which was
about four months old.
Mr. Sheilhorn was able to extri
cate himself but was not able to re
lease his wife and child. H went
to a near-by house, and there being
no one at home he broke open the
bouse, telephoned for help and re
turned to the scene just as W. O.
Gillespie was coining along, awl ti e
two were able to extricate the moth
er and child.
They were taken lo the office of
Dr. Worthman of Louisville, where
he dressed the injuries temporarily
and advised them to hasten to a
hosnital where the best of treatment
could be given. They were accord
ingly taken to Omaha,

MAIN STREET LOCKING
VERY MUCH BETTER
After the transferring (f the pol-:
which have ben on Main street for
a good many years to the alleys ami
the stringing of the telephone wires
thereon the appearance of the street
has been greatly improved. Also, ns
a result, th" telephone service is
much better, and the ratrons art
all well tdeasod. Xow with the securing-
of electric lighting seryice.
which seems assured, as there art
three places available from which it
secure the juice, the town promises
to take on a progressive spirit that
will make itself heard for miles
around. Of the three available sources
of obtaining electric service, a line
from the high tension circuit gun
ning to Elmwood seems most feas
ible as the distance in this case ic
shorter than to either Greenwood or
Louisville, where connection might
be made with lines of either the Ne
braska rower Co.. or the Lincoln
Light and Electric Co. The city
council has resolved itself into a
committee to investigate he propo-'
sition and will take the matter up
a little later.

Leslie Rash Visiting Here
Leslie Rush. of near Primrose,
who was formerly a resident of Mur
dock. arrived in the city on Friday,
coming to visit for a time ut the
home of his brother, Wrn. Rush.
Leslie, who has been farming near
Primrose, was taken last winter with
a very severe spell of influenza, from
which he failed to completely recov
er, and after the completion of the
summer's harvest and thresh fug he
was compelled to go to lhe hospital
for treatment, from which l.e has
just been discharged. Mr. Rush is
thinking seriously of quitting the
farm on account of ill health, in
which event he will probably return
to Murdock to make his home.
