Just as the Leader-Echo had com
pleted printing the last run last
week, an accident which came very
nearly taking the life of Wm. Senf,
occurred while he and F. J. Fitch,
Herman Penterman and Pete Lynn
were working in the large trench
which had been dug to lay the main,
from the newly completed city well
to the sta"nd pipe. It seems that the
pipe had already been laid in the
bottom of the ditch and these men
were digging out and around it so
that they could get it in proper po
sition for adjustment. Mr. Senf was
on his knees and shoveling dirt
away from the pipe, Lynn was at
the north end of the ditch digging
and Herman Penterman was back of
Senf to the south end of the ditch,
Mr. Senf being somewhat near the
middle. Without a moment's warn
ing the east side of the ditch caved
in. Mr. Penterman saw it coming
and hollered as he threw himself
forward in an attempt to check it
but was pushed violently back, the
entire load of many pounds of dirt
fell upon him - completely covering
him under about two feet of dirt.
Those present immediately set to
work digging with their hands and
fortunately succeeded in uncovering
his head and he was found in an un
conscious state. However, it was but
a short time until he was conscious
again, and in a semi-conscious state,
Mr. Senf struggled to release him
eelf as there was much dirt about
him yet. After he had been entire
ly released a stretcher was brought
and he was taken to the office of a
physician where he was given imme
diate attention. Those who were
present in telling of t he accident,
say it was a thrilling and anxious
time. While they dug furiously to
extract Mr. Senf, and it possibly was
only a few moments until they had
uncovered his head, they say it seem
ed a long time, possibly thirty min
utes. This was because of the an
xiety of the men for Mr. Senf, who
they were sure would be smothered
to death. It is fortunate that these
men were present for had Mr. Senf
been alone he would have smothered.
WATCH YOUR KIDNEYS
Inhaling the fumes of turpentine
and white lead often weakens the
kidneys. That's one reason why so
many painters have bad backs and
sick kidneys. Exposure, frequent
colds and chills and the strain of
climbing up and .down ladders help
start the trouble.
If your back aches, if sharp pains
strike you in the back when stoop
ing, lifting or working; if you have
headaches, dizziness, rheumatic pain;
if the urine is discolored or passages
painful and scanty, try Doan's Kid
ney Pills, the remedy so widely used
and so well recommended by men in
the painting trade. Here's a Platts
M. Lauderback, contractor, paint
er and paper hanger, Locust street,
says: "I had lumbago and kidney 1
trouble a few years ago. I believe
the turpentine fumes from the paint j
coula hardly bend over or life any -
thing and I couldn't even turn over

when I tried to walk, I could not
lift them, just had to scuff them
along. My kidneys acter irregular

kind he was using just now- and
they were fine potatoes, while tho
others were real "Murpheys", but
he was not using them at this time,
as . there were not enough people
around to take what would run out
when he cut off the end of a row
and they were so productive that
large quantities would run out and
lose before he could close the open
ing in the row. They are sure great
potatoes, said Mr. Murphey.
