From FriftaVa Daily. One of those who have paid the price of war in a terrible manner is Frank Urban who was a resident of Plattsmouth in 1916-17. and who is now in the hospital at Prague. Cze-cho-Slavakia. Mr. Urban was a cap tain in the Czech army that served with the allied troops in the world war and was in a number of the most vital drives of the war and dur ing this time was wounded and suf fered shell shock that has impaired his health since. He was returned to the hospital at Prague at the close of the war and while he has grown somewhat stronger in body, his mind has failed to rally from the extreme nervous shock of the service at the front and he stead'iy has grown worse. It is thought that the young man will never fully regain his men tal faculties as the result of the ex periences through which he passed. The government of the new re public of Czecho-Slavakia has made every effort to care for their, wound ed and skk service nen and they are being cared for io the govern ment eptablishrajBts- iis.tad. of be ing placed in the various insane asy lums as has been the general prac tice in the United States. - BUSINESS MEN WILL HELP FIX UP TOURIST PARK Ad Club Will Participate in Work cf the American Legion in Cleaning- up the Park.

Quin ton was called out to the vicinity of Murdock ty a message announcing that a man named William Irving was creating a disturbance at the home of William Nelson, where he has been making his home and fo the sheriff to get to the 5cene of ac tion as soon as possible. In despoase to the call the sheriff arrived on the K-ene of action and quelled the near riot and brought the gentleman in I question on into this city to rest up at the count- bastile until his case could be heard. From the reports from the scene it seems that Mr. Irv infi had become filled with the dis tilled spirit of Nebraska fertile corn or some other equally inflamable li quid that caused him to lose his us ual spirit of self possession and there upon he iad indulged in a general argument that culminated in a large part of the family chinaware being broken up and a general rough house. The residents of Murdock were notified of the matter and a number hastened to the scene but were unable to successfully pour oil on the troubled waters, but the sher iff in his usual diplomatic manne: succeeded in getting the insurrection under control and brought the al leged cause of the trouble on into our peaceful city. It was first thot that the man was taken suddenly insane but later it was found that it was merely a liquid outbreak and would subside as the effects of the rtimulant wore off. However, it cre ated considerable stir in the vicinity cf the Nelson home while it lasted. iARGAIN DAY IS WELL PATRONIZED Residents of the City and. .
