ONE OF THE BIGGEST
Sewer Extension on Washington Av
enue One of Best Pieces of Public
Improvements Yet Proposed
From Wednesday's Dally.
The action of the city council in
bringing to the front the matter of
the extension of the sewer on Wash
ington avenue at, their meeting on
Monday evening was a step in the di
rection of securing for the city a
lasting improvement and one that
will add much to the appearance of
the city and to the value of pro
perty In the portion of the city abut
ting on the avenue. Where the sew
. er ends at the present time is one
of the worst spots on the old creek
for overflowing and there has hardly
been a severe rriin that has not
caused some overflow at least at this
point and under unusual rains as
sometimes visits this locality the
body of water overflowing here has
been very great and. has did a great
damage to the surrounding property.
With the sewer extended to the west
side of the 10(h street the danger
of overflow 13 reduced a .great deal
and practically all chances of the
heavy overflows is eliminated. This
Is logical as the nearer the sewerage
is pushed toward the headwaters
of the creek the Jess chance there
is for the water getting out of the
banks and at the point where it is
proposed to complete the sewer this
year the creek Is quite deep, and
amply able to hold a great deal of
water, that it cannot do under the
present circumstances with the sew
er extension stopping Just west of
the O. K. garage. The property that
lies along the creek has been handi
capped by the fact of the existence
of the streams and the sewer does
away with this entirely and makes
the property desirable in every way
with paving,' and all danger of over
I flow eliminated. The city is also
interested as the park purchased for
the north side'of the city is located
along the creek and the sewer will
make passible the completion of the
idea for which the old brick yard
property was purchased that of i
nice park for the use of the res!
dents of that part of the city. The
seewr will demand a big fill and this
will use up most cf the dirt that is
needed to be removed from the park
site and when taken, away it will
assist in the completing of the park
and save the expense of having dirt
hauled a great, distance.

Some of our farmers in the cjtinty
who have pure bread cattle had a
tuberculin test run in their herd
and found deceased animals. These
men had not made application for an
accredited herd so they did not re
ceive federal or state money which
is appropriated for this cause. A
farmer or breeder does not have to 1
have all pure bred cattle to get an
accredited herd, but all pure breds j
and grades on his farm must be test- 1
ed. Any breeder wishing: to-test his J
herd, write or phone "Farm' Bureau j
office, and we" will be glad to tal;e
this up. Don't wait until tuberculo
sis. Is found in your herd to apply
or you cannot make application.

From Wednesday's Daily. -
This morning as Fred Haffke was
enroute from his farm to the stock
market at South Omahawith a truck
load of hogs he had a close call from
death as the truck which he was driv
ing was struck by southbound M. P.
passenger train No. 104 at the cross
ing near Pappion, north of LaPIatte
Mr. Haffke did not see the train
as he approached the crqssing but
as he was starting over ne neara
the whistle and glanced to the south
but saw no train and looking around
was startled to see the train a short
distance from him and coming at a
rate of speed that made it impossi
ble to escape from the- path of the
onrushing train. The force of the
collision demolished the truck and
hurled Mr. Haffke from his seat on
to the pilot of the engine and he
was carried some two hundred rods
before the train could be stopped
and the Injured man revived and
placed in the train and brought on
to this city.
The train , was met at the station
by Dr. R. P. Westover, who had been
called and the injured man brought
down to the office of the surgeon
where an examination was made of
his injuries.- The small ankle bones
are both cracked and the legs of Mr.
Haffke badly skinned and scratched
and the head and face also quite
badly scratched up, but no danger
ous injuries could be found on him
and he apparently did not suffer
nternal injury as no trace' of this
could be found in the examination.
The Injuries of Mr. Haffke were
dressed by Dr. , Westover. and he was
made as comfortable as possible" and
taken to his home to recuperate, but
will be some time before he Is
able to be around as usual. It was
very fortunate thing that Mr.
Haffke escaped "as easily as he did

great and the force of the collision
completely wrecked the truck which
was thrown clear of the track by
the force of the, impact. The load
of hogs were scattered over the sur
rounding country but as far as can
be learned only one of them was se
verely injured. '
Mr. Haffke states that he remem
bered seeing the train a short dis
tance away and the force of the col
lision, but was knocked unconscious
by the force of his fall and did not
remember anything more until re

Sheared Sheep Need a Dry Place.
If sheep have a dry place there is
little danger in shearing any time
now. a Darn or shed is essential for
a day or two after shearing, unless
the weather is very mild. If such
a shelter is available there is little
danger even in bad weather. Sheep
are more or less susceptible to pneu
monia at all times if they get wet
and cold. The longer the wool the
slower it drys out, and hence a
sheared sheep is little more liable to
pneumonia than one with long wool.
Hand power shearing machines are
giving satisfaction. Kxperiments
show that they will take off. from
one to two pounds of wool more than
hand shearing. Fleeces are tied
with the bright side out. and -the
tying done with wool twine and the.
fleece placed in special nacks. The
use of binder twine and gunny sacks
resul.ts In a dock in the price. Wool

ARTHUR L. BAKER, Owner
from Tuonday'B Dally.
The friends of aquartet of Platts
mouth young, men: are having more
or less fun at their expense and as
the outgrowth of. a trip the younj
men made to our Neighboring town
of Nebraska City on last Saturday
evening to. attend the closing hours
of the Eagle carnival.
Now as most everybody knows the
roads have been very poor for the
past several days and were particu
larly so on Saturday evening when
the party loaded in their jitney and
started for Otoe cou.ity full of pep
and preparing for a big time in
Nebraska City. As the car sped ov
er the road the spirits of the party
rose and they foresaw hours of tri
umph at the ball when they would
make one big hit with the ladies
of Nebraska City by their irresist-
able aDDearance. But the fates
were aeainst the members of the
party for as. they neared Nebraska
City and were speeding down a steep
hill a large mud hole suddenly
loomed ahead of them at the fcot
of the hill and the car sank peace
fully in the mud and remained
there. The . party had arrayed
themselves with unusual care for
their triumph and consequently
were unable to get out and use their
pep in getting the car "out of the
mud so the car owner visited one of
the nearby houses and secured , a
farmer to Dlace the cac In his farm
yard and let it remain until a better
day. The party then Tilt the re
maining distance, on foot into the
city and arrived in all their glory
at the ball late in the evening.
But this Is not the worse. Yester
day morning Sheriff Quintan received
a call from Nebraska City inquiring
after. the ownership of the jitney as
the party who had it had stated that
a party of s-chool boys had left it
at his farm and he thought it might
have been taken from this city and
later abandoned. This last blow
was the most severe school boys
an the young men had prided
themselves on their reputation as
male "vamps" and felt rather crest
fallen when the bitter facts in the
case became circulated among their
friends as well as the members of
any pain, burn, scald or
