The services at the Presbyterian
church last Sunday were of an especial
ly interesting character. In the even
ing, Pastor McEwen was at ids very
best on the subject, “The Up-to-Date
Young Man,” and dwelt very fully
upon the immorality of men of today,
especially in regard to the senseless
habits of swearing, gambling, etc.,
showing the correct individual avoids
these and tries to uplift himself into
a purer atmoshhere. The singing by
the choir, especially the anthem and
the song by the Regale Quartet, was
most highly appreciated. The solo by
Miss Jessie Culley was very pleasing
and gave evidence that Miss Culley
has a voice of much power and sweet
ness of tone. Lovers of good music
and of logical and intellectual dis
courses on religious matters can spend
a very pleasant and profitable hour at

Narrow Escape From Death.
Fred Foster narrowly escaped death
last Saturday night about 11:30 on the
U. P. tracks just south of the city.
He had gone Saturday afternoon with
ins train as far as Dannebrog, when
he let the train go on to St. Paul
while lie returned to Loup City to
spend Sunday at home, propelling a
tricycle over the route. When his
train reached St. Paul, the engine
was ordered to return and bring the
motor into Loup City, it having been
'derailed between Boelus and Rock
ville. The engine passed Fred on its
way in. he getting himself and tri
. cycle off the track to let it by and
then resuming his journey. When the
engine reached Loup City it turned
and had but reached a short distance
■ below the yards when it ran into Fred
and his tricycle, hurling them from
the track, demolishing the machine
and badly injuring Mr. Foster, break
ing one of the bones in his right
shoulder, injuring him severely on the
right side and rendering him uncon
i scious. It seems Mr. Foster was try
ing to make the switch at the lower
end of the yards ahead of the engine
misjudging the time and distance
from the switch. The engine crew
picked the wounded man up and
brought him into the city, where the
company’s surgeon examined his in
; juries and found them as stated.
| While his injuries are of a serious
character and will confine him to the
house for quite a period of time, no
fear of fatality exists. The North
western and his hosts of friends here
and elsewhere will deeply sympathize
with Mr. Foster over his unfortunate
