The unfortunate man who has
been in failing health for some time
had left his home about 3 o'clock
and it is stated, walked down to his
office at the lumber yard, but not en
tering the office, turnd around and
walked back a short distance to the
Rock Island crossing where he turn-
ed and walked southwest a short dis
tance down the tracks, and at this
time the westbound flyer, No. 5,
came into sight traveling at its us
ual high rate of speed as the train
does not stop at Alvo. The engineer
of the train states that he sounded
the whistle as the train swept into
Uhe vicinity of the crossing and see

John Murtey was sixty years of

office of representative, as Louis
Leiner of this city has filed as a pro
gressive candidate as well as George

County Commissioner Fred H. Gor

tion to that effect has been received
at the office of County Clerk George

in 1920 to fill the vacancy caused by

Mr. Gorder is a democrat in poli

his strength and ability that is rec
