M. L. Melson, Missouri Pacific
roadmaster on this division was in
stantly killed Saturday morning just
tins siue ol the u street crossing
south of town iJjen his motor car
collided with fne engine of the pile
driver work train.
The engine with nothing but a ten
dor attached was backing out from
Avoca" bringing workmen out to the
bridge on which they were working.
The crew were not conscious of hav
ing reaped their grim harvest of
death until they stopped at the bridge
and discovered the wrecked motor
car still clinging to the rails and
partly telescoped upon the tender.
They immediately rushed Lack to
ward Avoca and found the badly mu
tilated body of the roadmaster at the
curve just north of the O street road
It is presumed that Mdson was
hurrying to get into Avoca in plenty
of time ahead of the north bound
Omaha passenger and as lie had plen
ty of time for that, thought there
was no other danger. It is thought
hik might een have been sitting with
his back to the wind thinking there
i was nothing to be on the look out
for. In fact it was a very unusual
thing for the work train to be cut
on the line until after the passenger
had gone through and they made
the trip this, particular morning just
to take th? workmen out and were
to hurry leak to Avoca immediately
to clear for the passenger. Ji the
roadmaster had been traveling under
orders the accident probably would
have been avoided. However, he left
Weeping Water before the operator's
Mine to come onto the job.
. The body was taken to Avoca and
placed in charge of our Weeping Wa
ter undertakers until that evening
when it was shipped via Auburn
where his home was. to the old home
of both himself and wife at Monroe
In his immediately family he leaves
only the wife to survive him. He
had been roadmaster on this division
for three years. He made his terri
tory much of the time on the trains
and only a shcrt time ago in speaking
to railroad men here about his nnitor
car remarked that it "would be the
death of him s -:111c cf those days."

Famous Wherever Corn Grows
BUILT TO SHELL HUSXED CORN
The Joliet Cylinder Corn Shellers possess all the advantages of other cyl
inder corn shellers and are free from their defects.
They do not require a man to stand behind them in the dust to keep back
the unshelled ears of corn.
In fact, these shellers are as nearly automatic as any machines can be that
require adjustment for different kinds of work.
We have these shellers in stock. Come in and look them over.
