NEHAWKA MAN HAS
John Behrns Knocked Down by
Runaway Team of. Mules
Wagon Passes Over Him
John Behrns, residing west of N'e-
hawka on the "O" street road, met
with a very severe accident on last
j Tuesday evening, which will inca
pacitate him for some time and
I which could easily have had a very
! serious outcome for the gentleman.
' Mr. Behrns was working around
! his farmyard and nearby a team of
mules was standing hitched to a
! farm wagon. The mules became res
tive and started to run and in tneir
progress knocked Mr. Behrns down
and trampled on him in their flight.
The wheel of the heavy wagon pass
ed over the left leg of Mr. Behrns,
and when he was found by his wife
lying on the ground, it was feared
that the member had been broken.
The injured "man was assisted into
a car and taken to Nehawka by Mrs.
Behrns. where he was given medical
aid and an examination made as to
the extent of his injuries. It was
found that the bones of the leg were
not injured and the most serious ef
fects of the accident were severe
cuts and bruises on the face and
about the body.
CAR GETS UNRULY
From Thursday's Dally.
Yesterday afternoon E. J. Weyrich
was driving to the country with his
light Ford converted truck and was
accompanied by John E. Schutz, as
well as one of the fine laboratory
model Edison phonographs of which
the firm of Weyrich & Hadraba are
the local agents. All went merry
with the party until near the U. B.
church corner when the steering ap
paratus of the truck became jammed
in some way and it -was impossible
to control the machine. The Ford
made a sudden turn over. that threw
the two gentlemen out and the New
i Edison into the road, the car making
i a very graceful flop. After some
difficulty. Messrs Weyrich and Schutz
had the car righted and an examina
tion of the phonograph failed to dis
close any injuries to the machinery
or the cabinet and it was still able
SHOWS EXCELLENT CONDITION.
Mrs. Val Burkle, who is at the
Clarkson hospital in Omana, recover

there last Tuesday, is now doing
very nicely. The family have been
assured that the worst of the crisis
is now over providing .that no com
plications ensue and the attending
surgeons are feeling well pleased
with the result of the operation.
SUMMER IMPROVE- .
MENT PROGRAM ON
Prospects Look Good that Season
1921 will Witness Much New
Building Work Here,
i Even so early in the spring, the
prospects indicate that a number of
new homes will be built during the
coming season and that the city will
realize a number of substantial
changes that will make for a more
attractive and substantial home
The new building of J. F. Warga.
on Main street, will add very much
to the general appearance of the
business section and be one of the
most attractive and modern store
buildings in the city when it is
finally completed and it is hoped
that it will not be long until the
structure is in shape to be occupied
by Mr. Warga and J. P. Sattler with
their business establishments..
Another very pleasing improve
ment to the city will be the work
that is to be carried out this season
on the exterior of the Nebraska Ma
sonic home as well as about the
grounds, which will make both a
great deal more sightly to the eyes
of the traveler and enjoyable to the
residents of the home.
In the residence line Leonard J.
Meisinger is having a cozy new home
erected on Walnut street between
Ninth and Tenth streets and which
will be a splendid addition to that
nart of the city. This home will be
one that will prove a real home in
The vicinity of Pearl street is also
to be made much more attractive as
John II. Albert, one of the substan
tial residents of the city, has pur
chased the property just west of the
II. Waintroub home and will 'in all
probability within the next few j
months have a fine modern home
erected thereon and one that will be

With these additions to the build
ing lines, there seems no reason why
the season of 1921 should not bring
a great many more additions to the
city anu as the general conditions
improve there are. many more who
will take up the building program.

BAKERS OF THIS CITY CLAIM THE
SMITH POUND BREAD .BILL
WILL NOT WORK HARDSHIP
The governor lias signed the Smith
pound for a pound bread bill. Word
of executive approval was received
in the house Thursday morning with
shouts of approval. The member
from Omaha who introduced the bill
and who has faced the wrath and
scorn vi mighty bakers, was the man
1 of the hour. He was ushered to the
front of representative hall while a
score or more of members shouted.
"Smith." "We want Smith," "We
want bread." "speech."
The executive also has placed the
stamp of approval on H. R. 440. state
hail insurance bill which was once
pulled back from apparent doom and
saved by the clipping of the hundred
thousand dollar revolving" fund. It
tarries the emergency clause and be
comes a law in time for assessors to
pel form the duties of insurance solici
tors w hile visiting Nebraska in April.
Representative George A. Wliliams.
guardian angel of the bill, has fol
lowed it with all the persistence of a
Sherlock. His last minute discovery
of a defect possibly saved its effective
ness. The discovery was this: The
engrossed bill put up to the governor
to sign or reject, omitted the little
word "or" in a vital place. It pro
vided that "if the person whose pro
perty is assessed is willing and con
sents to have all parts of his crop in
sured, the assessor .-.hall take his ap
plication." Mr. Williams rushed back to the
engrossing room. He soon discovered
that the word "or" appeared in the
original bill. He saw to it that the
correction was made and "or" was
returned between the words "all" and
"parts." The member from Fillmore
took charge of negotiations at a time
when it appeared that the bill would
fail to pass through stubbornness or
j unwillingness on the part of friends
j of the original measure to give up
the revolving fund clause. I hey nn
ally t greed when it was made clear
to them that with the revolving fund
attachment, the bill could not go
through with the emergency clause
and that without the emergency, the
bill would be useless this year.
The governor also has approved H.
It. 411. providing for the consolida
tion of Lincoln and her suburbs, sub
subject to a vote of the people in each

The Plattsmouth bakers are rather
favorable to the new law rather than
opposed as they state that during
the last' months they have been
handling bread with loaves that out
weighed those turned out by the Oma
ha and Lincoln bakeries and this

with them as their loaves will come
under tiie standard demanded by the

strongly by the master bakers of the

TWENTY PER CENT
DROP IN VALUATION
Assessors of County at Meeting Yes
terday Decide That to be Prop
er Cut on Farm Land.
From Thursday's Dally
At the meeting of the assessors of
the county yesterday at the court
house, it was decided among other
matters that in making the assess
ment of farm lands of the county
this year, a decrease of twenty per
cent will be made in valuations, to
insure an equitable assessment of
land over that given last year.
In the matter of farm improve
ments the assessing will be wholly
at the 'discretion of the assessor, as
the value tjf these will depend large
ly on what they were listed at last
year, and this has made it impos
sible to fix any set rules for reduc
tions in value for the coming j-ear.
In the assessing of real estate in
the villages and cities of the county,
the assessors will also regulate the
matter according to their Judgment,
as the fixing of any certain amount
of reduction would, iu many cases,
bring the valuation to less than that
of four years ago.
The assessors now having gotten
lined, up on the work before them,
they will be all ready to start out
tomorrow and make the first steps
toward assessing the county.
DEATH OF GEORGE A. D0LAN

On the Up Grade!
No stronger proof that the country is
rapidly getting back to normal can be offered
than recent Federal Reserve figures.
Rediscounts (frozen credits, largely)
among Federal Reserve banks amounted last
October to $247,000,000. By February 25th.
this total had been reduced to less than $14,
000,000. only ONE-EIGHTEENTH of what
the debt was last fall.
This country has never witnessed a more
wonderful ability to pay debts than it has the
last four months. This has been largely due
to the operation of the Federal Reserve Sys
tem, of which this institution is a member.
