HAS BAD FALL
From Monday' Pally.
Yesterday. John Waterman, one of
the old and highly respected resi
dents of the city suffered a very ser
ious fall at his home in the north
part of the city and which for a
time caused a great deal of appre
hension to the members of the fam
ily. Mr. Waterman had stepped out
on the rear porch of his home and
was carrying an earthenware cuspi
dor "in his hand and as he started to
descend the steps he fell, the cuspi
dor breaking and the aged gentle
man fell on the jagged fragments of
the broken china, with the result
that a large gash was cut on the
side of his head.-
The cut bled very profusely and
caused the family a great deal of
apprehension for a time, but the ar
rival of the family physician to dress
the wound eased their fears at is was
found the injury was merely a flesh
wound. Owing to t.he advanced year:;
of Mr. Waterman the injury was at
first feared to be very serious, but he
is now resting easily.

the land claimed by the plaintiff on
the river bottom north of the pump
The defendant in the appeal con
tended that the plaiMliT had an ade

The supreme court found that the
facts in the case were that the land
was without improvements until 19
07. having be?n formed by accretion
from the Platte and Missouri rivers
and in that year the plaintiff had
caused the land to be cleared off and
fenced, plowed and crops raised and
in 1913 had caused the land to be
platted and placed on the tax list

evidence of threat of futher tress

ficient ground to warrant the ask

sustained the action of the district
court in making the injunction per
manent. Attorney W. A. Robertson appear
