C. Sharp of the Alfa-Maize Mill
ing Co., Finds Much Encour
agement in Iowa Fields.
The company that has been fann
ed for the purpose f trotting mills
for th- purpose of manufacturing
stock fond through the special pro
cess jvi).,i by tin? Alfa-Maize com
pany of this city, is meeting with
much encouragement in neighboring
The proposition has been brought
up of establishing a mill at either
Glenwol or Pacific Junction, which
places have been applicants for the
liK-atioit of one of the mills. The com
pany has also received much encour
agement at Hamburg. Iowa, which
enterprising little city will undoubt
ly secure one of the plants for the
manufacture of the feed that will
make such a revolution in th.e stock
feeding world. It is hoped that in
a short time it will be possible to
have the machinery fully installed in
the mill here at Plattsmouth and
have it operating so that by fall the
work of the manufacture of stock
fiwd may be under way in good shape.
Mr. Sharp Mates that the con
densed form in which the special
process of his machinery handles the
alfalfa, corn and other forage feed,
makes it a very easy matter to ship
the manufactured feed and that it
will be possible to ship twice the
amount of stock food of the manu
factured sort in the same space that
would be required for a much small
er amount of the alfalfa, corn or
other fool in its original form.
The message was received in the
city today by the relatives announc
ing i he arrival of a fine little son
and heir to Mr. and Mrs. Glen Kavls
at the Murray hospital at Hillings.
Montana. The little son has been
christened Carlos E. Rawls and with
the mother is reported as doing nice
ly. The happy event that has com?
to Mr. and Mis. llawls will be pleas
ing news to the many friends in thii
city and especially to Mr. and Mrs. C
A. Hauls, of this city, parents, of the
proud father.
Treatment of Common Colds
"If all who catch cold could be
persuaded to remain in bed for the

attack." says a well known physician,
"there would be fewer C'ses drag

for weeks and often ending in some
riore serious disease." To make sure
f a prompt recovery you should al -o
t ike Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
Whether sick or veil the bowels
should move each day. "

About Digestion
It is cl limed that only half a-5
much lood is required when it is
thoroughly masticated. Digestion Le
tiins in the mouth and a thorough
mastication of the food is of the
greatest importance. When needed,
take Chamberlain's Tablets to streng
then the digestion and insure a regu
lar movement of the bowels.

Murray, Neb.
Young Man Was on Way from Work
at Lyman-Richey Sand Pit at
Time of the Accident.
From Saturday's Dallv.
Last evening while James Thomp
son, an. eighteen year old lad of
Louisville was enroute from his work
at the Lyman-Richey sand pits north
of the Platte river, to his home in
Louisville, he was killed by falling
beneath a moving freight train of
the C. R. I. & P. railroad.
The accident occurred shortly be
fore six o'clock; as voting Thompson.
completing his work, was starting
for his home. At this time a west
bound freight train of the Rock Is
land was moving off of the bridge of
the Missouri Pacific and Mr. Thomp
son to save a walk to town, attempt
ed to board the train. The only eye
witness of the tragedy was the fire
man of the train and he states that
Thompson made three attempts to
secure a footing on the train which
had by the time he came -up gained
quite a little headway. The third
attempt was fatal as the boy losing
his hold on the side irons was swung
beneath the wheels and six cars pass
ed over his body before the train
could be stopped and the mangled re
mains dragged from the track where
they lay.
The body was completely severed
at the waist and one leg was torn
off and the remainder of the body
and head of the boy frightfully man
gled by the whtels and being drag
ged over the ties a. id rails. In at
tempting to board the train young
Thompson had placed his dinner
bucket in the bib of his overalls and
this with the clothing was entirely
destroved in the accident.
The unfortunate young man re
sided in Louisville with his widowed
mother. Mrs. Mary Thompson, of
whom he was the support and to
whom the loss has come as a terri
ble shock. He also leaves one sis
ter, Mrs. Louis Mayfield, residing
east of Louisville and two brothers.
Harry of Papillion and George, re
siding at Havelock.
The funeral services were held to
day at the late home owing to the
condition of the body not permit
ting delay. The accident has come
as a great shock to the community
near Louisville and the ' bereaved
mother has the deepest sympathy of
the manv friends in her loss.
Wounds Received in Accident at the
Havelock Shops Such as to Af
ford No Hope of Recovery
Fron Saturday's Dally
The condition of Robert Goodman,
who was injured on Thursday after
noon at the Havelock shops is re
ported this morning as being very
grave and while all possible has
been done for him. his case is very
serious and the chances of his re
covery are doubtful.
The operation at the St. Klizabeth
hospital in Lincoln disclosed the fact
that the injuries were not caused by
the ball bearings from the broken
machine as had first been reported,
but a small fragment of the casing
of the machine with which the young
man was working. It ( ms he was
using air pressure on the machine
for cleaning and the section of the
casing broken off was forced into his
body, making a wound similar to
that caused by shrapnel, and which
penetrated the intestines, almost sev
ering the large intestine and several
of the smaller intestines-and it was
impossible to locate the piece of
steel although several X-ray exami
nations as well as probing were used
in the attempt to locate the frag
ment causing the wound.. The father.
R. F. Goodman, returned home last
evening to arrange his affairs' at this
place so he could return to the bed
side of the son and this morning
the aunt of the injured boy, Mrs.
Charles Hiatt and his younger broth
er and sister, departed for the hos
pital to be with Robert.

Troubles Lisappear After Taking'
Tanlac and She is Regaining
Her Lost Weight.
"Anybody who gets the wonder
ful relief I have experienced ought
to certainly praise the medicine that
did it," said Mrs. Cora Scott, living
at 300 2 Lindsey Ave.. Omaha. Neb. .
"P.efore I took Tanlac," she con
tinued, "I was suffering from a num
ber of ailments and was up all hours
of the night fteling so nervous and
miserable I couldn't, half sleep.
"My stomach was all out -of onlci
and my appetite was so poor tint 1
could hardly eat a thing and suffer
ed more or less all the time from
indigestion. I v-as badly constipat
ed and had dizzy spells and awful
headaches. I also suffered from
catarrh of th- head and had rheu
matism in both p. is ami the upper
part of both arms, which was very
painful. I hail been in this cordi-

true I lost sixty pounds. Although
I felt tired and worn out at niu'.it,
I couldn't got any sound sl.ep itoi

to bed. I had too much will power
to give up, but it was all I could do
to drag around and do my work.
"I took so many different kii:ds of

iirstakon soon after I began taking
Tanlac. for I b .--iran to fe-M h.Mer

Delegates to County Convention at
Plattsmouth Expressed Approv
al of Early Action by Board
From Saturday-!. 1 tail.
The republican county convention
convened in the Distirct court room
Tuesday and this afforded County
Commissioner Harris an opportunity
to present to a representative num
ber of tax payers over the county
tho necessity of making some very
needed repairs to the court house. In
one corner of the court room the
plastering had fallen off and accord
ing to the statt merit made by Com
missioner Harris there is danger of
the filing with which the ceiling is
lined, falling upon 1 ho heads of the
occupants of tin- building. He stated
that the board of commissioners had
decided to make the necessary re
pairs to the building and after his
description he asked for a vote of
approval, which was. almost unani
mous. Cass county's court house is a mag
nificent st no t ure, but for some rea
son unknown to tho wriler it has
been shamefully negltcted. The
building has settled until the slate
roof has cracked and pulled away
from the building in places, allowing
the water to soak the wall- which
in turn has lotted away the ends of
the stringers allo.vir.g the ceiling to
sag and tli? plastering to crack and
fall olT. Tho ceiling and walls of
this particular ri.ein have evidently
at one time in the hazy past been
painted and dec rated, but today
they are smoked and begrimed with
du?H and look more like the inter
ior of a Missouri Pacific round house
than a court room.
Commissioner Harris is right. It
needs fixing. The only complaint
the Courier has i- the fact that the
commissioners have been so neglect
ful of their duty ir. permitting this
magnificent building to get into such
a dilapidated and disgraceful con
dition. The commissioners should
not stop at repairing this room but
the e'ntlre building needs going over
and such .repairs as are found neces
sary should be made at once.
This thing of "passing the buck"
and expecting the succeeding hoard
to take the initiative has been prac
ticed too long. It is poor economy
to postpone making needed repairs
until damage has been wrought to
such an extent that repairs are but
temporary at best. Louisville Cour

us with an extra big

The Facts About Rheumatism
More than nine out of ten cases of
rheumatism are either chronic or
muscular rheumatism, neither of
which require any internal treat
ment. All that is required is to
massage the affected parts freely
with Chamberlain's Liniment. You
will be surprised at the relief which
it affords.
