AUTOS RAGE TO
SAVEHU MAN LIFE
Heroic Effort Made to Save the Life
of Weeping Water Lad, but
Death Proved Victor.
Last Saturday evening between
the hours of 5 and 6 as people were
loitering on the streets just before
going to their supers or waiting
for the evening mail, suddenly out
of the north appeared a cloud of
dust and out of the cloud shot forth
a Buick touring car with but a
single occupant and moving with t he
speed of a hurricane. It bore down
upon the town with a swish.
The car was easily making 60
miles per hour as it shot to the north
crossing entering the business section
and when it reached the postoffice
was possibly running at a speed of
40 miles. When the brakes were
applied the car slid fully 'A) feet and
fragments of scorched rubber could
be seen on the ground us a result
of the intense friction on the sur
face of the tires as it slid forward
to a dead stop.
The first impulse of the on lookers
was "What the Sam Hill is the mat
ter with that fellow?" The driver
was soon able to explain his haste
which was occasioned by his having
to meet an ambulance from Lincoln,
bringing a pulineter to Weeping
Water for use in an attempt to re
vive the 12-year-old son of Leslie
Wiles, who had been sucked into the
pit at the elevator and had smothered
underneath an avalanche of corn.
The ambulance had not yet arriv
ed and the attention of pedestrians
was attracted to the direction from
which it should come. Suddenly it
came dropping over the hills at a
The pulmeter and two attendants
were transferred to the Buick and
away thev sved on their way to
All efforts had failed to save the
child and nothing had been spared
it was a race with death in which
death was the victor. But everybody
concerned had the satisfaction of
knowing that all in the power of
human endeavor had been done to
save the life of the little son.
Harvey Philips drove the Buick
and it can truthfully be said that
the car showed its excellent speed
and endurance. The trip from Weep
ing Water to Elmwood was made in
exactly twelve minutes. Elmwood

TO AID INFLATION
Secretary Houston Tells the Farmers
Tnat Prices Are Surely on
Washington. I). ('. Oct. 14. Secre
tary Houston reiterated today to rep
resentatives of agricultural interests
in conference here that the treasury
would not be a party to the with
holding of any commodity from the
market of any commodity from the
market in order to maintain artifici
ally high prices.
Spokesmen for the delegation were
frank in their criticism of Mr.
Houston's recent statement that prie-;
es had begun to recede, but the secre
tary told them as frankly that his
statement properly represented con
ditions. The delegation sought mainly to
have the treasury revive the war fi
nance corporation. arguing that
through it they would be able to ob
tain funds to finance exports which
they claimed were falling off, creat
ing a stagnant market.
Secretary Houston said the de
cision of the treasury not to revive
the war finance corporation had been
approved by the president and "nu
merous prominent senators and rep
resentatives." lie said the consen
sus of opinion was that the benefits
derived from restoration of the cor
poration would not counterbalance
the evil effects it would have on gen
eral money market and credit con
ditions. Registered Poland Chinas
