SMALL WRECK ON
This morning an extra south
bound freight while a short distance
out of Oreapolis was delayed by a
small wreck occasioned when an axle
one one of the cars was broken and
hung the train up. The wreck closed
the line and it was necessary to send
to Omaha for a derrick to assist in
clearing the track of the car and. op
ening up the line for travel. As the
result of the mix up there will be
no passenger trains operated over
this line this afternoon although it
is hoped to have the track cleared
and ready for operation by time for
the 7:39 northbound passenger.
Dollars and Cents
Counting it only in dollars and
cents, how- much did that last cold
cost you? A man may not always
stop work when he has a cold, but
perhaps it would be better if he did.
'It takes about tea days to get com
pletely rid of a cold under the usual
'treatment. That time can be much
shortened by taking Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and proper care of

remedy in the house is a mighty

FROM NEBRASKA CITY
Final Game of Season Proves Fastest
Seen on Local Floor Goes to
Locals by Score of 39 to 27.
From Saturday's Daily
The final game of the basket ball
season, was played last evening at
the high school gym when the Platts
mouth high school won from the Ne
braska City high school by the score
of 39 to 27, but the Hcore fails to
tell -the story of the interesting and
fast contest that .was hard fought to
the close and which within four
minutes of the close stood 23 to 23.
The Nebraska City team has an envi
able record having been defeated on
ly once up to last night in the en
tire season and this was when they
were defeated by Dunbar. The game
was very rough as well as fast and
numerous players were laid out dur
ing the contest as the result of their
being spilled on the floor of the gym
but all remained in the game until
The Plattsmouth team leaves next
week for the state tournament at
Lincoln where they appear iu Class
C while the Nebraska City team has
been assigned to Class D. The boys
comprising the team have made a
good record for the season having
won eight out of 14 games played
and their hopes of making a good
showing at the state meet are very
bright and their friends are hopeful
that they will return as champions
of their class.
The preliminary game last evening
was between the high school second
team and the eighth grade and was
won by the high school by a score of
IS to 23 with some fast playing in
the last minute of the game.
