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, were treated, the infant the following niaht as lated. Mrs. Sheilhorn burned about the breast and limbs as well as sustaining severe bruises from the accident, but is peitine along as will as could be expected. The parents have the sympathy of all in their loss of the little boy. which was their first and only chil l. Albert Sheilhorn. a brother of John's and Mr. Krecklow, a neighbor, drove to Omaha Friday morning and hrot the folks home, together with the remains of the little one. 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.
