LOREN McCRARY RECEIVES IN
JURIES BY BEING RUN
OVER BY A TRUCK
From Thursday's Daily.
Loren McCrary of this city, son of
Mr. anil Mrs. I. A. McCrary, was ser
iously if not fatally injured this
afternoon when he fell beneath the
wheels of a large truck and had his
ardomen severely crushed and sus
taining severe internal injuries.
The accident occurred near the J.
F. Wolff garage on South Fifth
street, the unfortunate young man
was standing near the garage when
a large truck belonging to the Puis
garage of Murray and driven by
George Brinklow. came along, and
Loren attempted to grab a ride on
ihe truck, jumping on the hub of
on- of the wheels. His foot slipped
from the hub and he was thrown
f the pavement and his body fe!l
in the path of the truck. He made
an attempt to roll out from under
the truck but was not successful us
the wheel of the truck passed over the
body, striking the abdomen and in
jurving the voung man verv serious
ly. As soon as the accident occurred
Mr. Hrinklow and E. A. Cook, who
vas riding on the truck, stopped
the truck and rushed to the assistance
of the injured man. and who was
tneti hurried to the office of a sur
geon. It was found here thai lie
was suffering very severely and it
was feared had sustained fatal in
juries. He was then taken by auto
! Omaha for treatment at the uni
versity hospital, being accompanied
to that city by hi.-, mother and Mr.
J. F. Wolff. The truck driver, how
ever, was in no way responsible for
the unfortunate accident.
While the full extent of the in
juries could not be determined with
out a more complete examination it
would seem that the young man had
sustained injuries that would prob
ably result fatally. -
The accident came as a great shock
to the community and to the many
friends of the young man who is
known to the large circle of friends
as "Shorty" and they are hopeful
that the young man may be able to
survive the terrible rdeal that lie
I aas underwent.

WEEPING WATER BOOSTERS AR
RANGED A FINE THREE
From Thnrsda v's iaily.
It was a happy thought which sug
gested the holding of a pure bred
cattle show at Weeping Water, and
those behind the movement clearly
demonstrated their ability to do
things up proper.
The Journal is glad to take note
of the success made by our hustling
neighbor town in the promulgation
of this county-wide exposition. The
exhibits at the state fair in Lincoln
did not exceed in quality, although
greater in quantity, those shown at
Weeping Water this week.
The cattle pens were filled with
some of the finest cattle produced
under the canopy of the heavens
breeding stock, feeder stock and the
finer strains of dairy stock all being
there for inspection.
The horses, which this generation
has begun to regard as a relic of
the past, were there, too. in surpris
ing numbers, all as round and sleek
as moles. Also, the animal that made
Missouri famous the mule, was
there in well matched spans, the
value of which ranged around a
When it conies to hogs, there was
nn endless variety on display. In
fact the number and kind were so
great that it would puzzle one to de
cide upon prize winners and the
Judges in the swine class were no
doubt ' puzzled many times as to the
awarding of the blue ribbons.
Poultry exhibits were also heavy,
including representative showings of
the pick of every well known breed.
Here. too. was presented a real prob
lem for the judges.
In addition to the excellent ex
hibits, one could not help being well
pleased at the friendliness exhibited
and the excellent treatment accorded
by the hospitable people of Weeping
Water to those in attendance.
The town was crowded with peo
ple from the surrounding country
and even the more remote corners of
the county, who had come to mingle
with each other and enjoy a day at
the show. Yet Weeping Water peo
ple through foresight and planning,
were able to care for the visitors,
provide edibles for the hungry and
otherwise make everyone feel right
at home. Altogether it was a red
letter event for this hustling com
munity. We are pleased at the success of
the enterprise and trust this is but
the beginning of such exhibitions and
community events in Cass county.
It seems reasonable to expect they
will be developed into much greater
and diversified attraction in the fu
ture than even this first one has
proven to be.
The show was witnessed by many
from this vicinity, although we fail
ed to note a very large number of
our fellow townsmen there.

SUFFERS FROM FIRE
Sparks from Chimney Cause Blaze
on Roof That Does Some $25 I
Damage to Building.
From Frtdy DaHv
The fire alarm late yesterday af
ternoon called the fire department
out to the Christian church in the
second ward where the roof of the
church building was ablaze as the
result of sparks from the chimney.
The church was being cleaned out
yesterday afternoon and a quantity
of paper had been burned in the
stove and it is thought that a par
ticle of burning soot fell on the roof
with the result that the shinglej
were ignited and for a few minutes
the danger of a serious fire was evi
dent. Fortunately the fire was dis
covered as soon as it started and the
neighbors hastened to aid in the
suppresssion of the flames, a bucket
brigade being formed as well as the
use of a garden hose on the fire and
the result was that the blaze was
soon extinguished and it was unnec
essary to turn on the city pressure

The injuries of the young man
were very severe as the examination
here disclosed and hefwas hurried to
the University hospital at Omaha,

of the hei.vy truck wheels had caus
ed the severe tearing of the liver
and internal injury r,f the abdomen
and that a severe heuimorhage had
taken place. It was clear that the
chances of the injured lad to recover
were very slight but all that it was
possible to do through medical skill
was carried out but without suc
cess. The injured voting man lingered
until 10:30 this morning when death
came to end his suffering and draw
