Explosion of Gas Stov$ Causes Se vere Eurning of Right Hand and Arm Yesterday. From Friday's Ially. Yesterday afternoon William Bar- . clav, state president cf the Eagles of the state of Nebraska, met with a very painful as well as serious ac cident at his restaurant in this city. The building is being overhauled and repaired and during this time there is more or less work with the stoves in t ho kitchen of the restau rant, which was one of the causes of the accident of yesterday. Mr. Rarclay was attempting to light one of the gas stoves in the kitchen and had made several at tempts when suddenly on placing a match to the burner, it exploded, a large quantity of gas having accumu lated, and in an instant the fames had swept over the hand of Mr. Bar clay, burning it very badly and in fact the right arm clear to the elbow was more or less burned and the hair of the unfortunate man singed by the spreading flames, but very fortunately the fire did not reach his ! face. The injured hand caused Uie most intense suffering and I'r. H. P. West over was hurriedly called to the res taurant, where the injured hand wr.s dressed and the patient mail15 as comfortable as the very annoying in jury would permit. Tiie burns we're so severe on the hand that large por tions of the skin and flesh dropped off shortly after the accident.

Short of this city, v.tll known over the domain of the fair stale of Nebraska as one of the greatest boosters for Oddfellowship in the state, was a visitor in Oma ha Wednesday night where he of ficiated at the organizing of a new Canton of the Patraianh Militant. Col. Short is the head of the First regiment and his official capacity supervised the instillation of the new branch of the order.

F. in Omaha, it is a part of the first battalion of the first regi ment and will be under the immed iate command of Major McKay of Benson. It starts its existence with a membership of twenty members all of whom Cid. Short states are live wires and will doubtless prove one of the big factors in the life of Odd fellowship in the metropolis. The organization of the new can ton was occomplished in record break ing time as Col. Short mustered in the canton, the members elected their officers and they were duly installed on the same evening. The member ship held a fine banquet at the close of the work and which was one of the happy features of the occasion. LEAVE FOR CALIFORNIA. "rnm Friday' Daily This afternoon C. C.

From Friday's Dailv The members of the Plattsmouth Ad club, numbering some eighteen of the live wire merchants, headed by President C. C. Wescott and Sec letary Fred Bu'.ch. made a visit to Plattsmouth' s largest industry the shops yesterday after- Burlington noon. The party departments. made the tour over all starting in at the of fice of Superintendent William Baird. where they were given the glad hand and on through the shops where the workmen are busily engaged in the work of completing and repairing the cars and equipment of the rail road. The visit proved a revelation to some of the members of the party, who had not before witnessed the operation of the shops and the var ious departments afforded them the greatest of pleasure as they watched the workmen turn out the different jobs on which they were engaged. The brass foundry, coach and paint shop, machine shop and blacksmith shop were the chief objects of in terest, although they spent some time in the steel car shop and the freight car repair department where a large part of the working force of the shop is employed. The day was one. however, that was far from ideal for a visit of this kind, as the hot sun beat down on the shops without mercy and the "Adders" were well heated up when they returned to the city, but were well pleased with the experiences oi the day and the fact that they had gotten in personal touch with the shops and the men who are em ployed there. A visit to the railroad shops is a revelation to anyone and certainly is one that every business man and cit izen not connected with the rail road should make, as it places them in close touch with the actual condi tions there. YOUNG PEOPLE ARE JOINED IN WEDLOCK Miss Gladys Cozad and Alfred Green, Both of Malvern, are Married Here Last Evening. From Friday's Dally.

The bridal party were attended by Mr. and Mrs. Ross Atchison, of Malvern, Mrs. Atchison being a sister of the bride. The bride was attired in a charming costume of blue satin. Mr. and Mrs. Green will remain in this city for the present and may decide to make this their permanent home. The groom is a former Platts mouth boy, being a son of Mr. and Mrs. W. O.
