A PECULIAR ACCIDENT
A most peculiar accident, which,
however, happened a year and a
half ago, is just now bearing its
fruit and causing much pain and
anxiety. About that time Glenn
Knapton, who has been at The Bea
con home about two years slipped
and fell on the ice on the back stair
way, alighting on his shoulder and
his head between two steps, wrench
ing his neck. A little salve and oint
ment was applied and nothing seri
ous was thought to be the matter.
However, at intervals ever since se
vere headaches and stiffness have
bothered him, and his recent expe
rience in cleaning the water tank
brought such acute pain that he vis
ited Dr. Llston of Elmwood. An' X
day picture revealed that the neck
had been broken at least the verte
bra misplaced, had grown together
imperfectly and the unnatural pres
sure was the cause of Intense pain.
A cast is being prepared and will be
applied and it is expected it will take
two or three months to remedy the
trouble. Eagle Beacon.

Concern over the Illness of Mrs.
Harding, wife of the president, was
expressed today at the White House,
despite the announcement that her
condition had improved during the
day. In a bulletin to the press Brig
adier General C. E. Sawyer, the fam

plications developed last night. They
abated slightly today, and Mrs.
Harding was reported to be resting
The illness was described as hypo
nephrosis, from which Mrs. Harding
has suffered at intervals since a surs-ii-al
operation nine years ago. On
former occasions, however, her ill
ness has yielded more readily to
treatment, it was said.
During the past two days. Doctor
Sawyer has been in almost constant
attendance at her bedside, his son,
Dr. Carl W. Sawyer of Marion, O.,
arriving today for consultation. Dr.
Joel T. Boone, naval medical officer
on the Mayflower, a staff of labora
tory technicians and two trained
nurses, also have been in attend
ance. The president spent part of the
morning today at Mrs. Harding's
bedside. After the cabinet meeting
he again left his office to be with"
her, and late in the afternoon laid
aside his offilial duties to return to
the sick room.
Ccnfidenhe was expressed by those
in attendanre at Mrs. Harding's

LOOKS AFTER DAMAGE
From Saturday's Dally
Harry W. Smith, the monument
. . i .i
man, was a visitor in ljinuum iuuaj
where he goes to look into the mat.
ter of an ante , ace dent in which he
was one of the victims on last Tues
day. The accident occurred eleven
miles west of Lincoln and was caus
ed when the car of Mr. Smith and
that of Mr. Bailey, one of the Lin
coln State League ball players, col
lided. Mr. Smith was coming from
Hastings and Mr. Bailey was going
w-pst and where they met on the
highway there were two cars parked
and without any warning the car
of Mr. Bailey swung out on the high
way just back of the two parked
cars and right in the path of the
car of Mr. Smith. Harry states that
both cars we're badly damaged and
will require a great deal of work to
make them fit for service. The re
sponsibility for the accident, how
ever, seejns to lie with the driver of
the other car.
Postal receipts show that we are
the greatest letter writers in the
world. But we already "knew that
from the stenographers' record in
the divorce courts.
