K L. H. Lawton of Lincoln was a city visitor ,
Wednesday. He was a resident of Red Wil
low county early in the seventies , and served
as a judge of election at the county-seat re
moval election held then. His recollection
and recital of the way our Indianola friends
made sufficient voters to steal the county-
seat from Red Willow is interesting. Mr.
Lawton has since had considerable interests
up in Hitchcock county. He explains that
why Red Willow did not contest the election
was because at that time they had nothing
else to do but to go fishing and buffalo hunt
ing , and that the county-seat game was not
considered worth the powder.

midst of the picturesque Black Hills , and
present unequalled attractions to the invalid ,
tourist or pleasure seeker. The thermal
waters are sure cure for rheumatism , nerve
troubles and all the ills man is heir to.
IXDIANOLA , Neb. , July 27. [ SpecialTele
gram to The Bee.J Indianola was thescene
of another railroad accident that resulted
more seriously than the one which occurred
here a short time ago. Freight No. 128 side
tracked here to allow passenger train No. 2 ,
due at (5:10 ( , to pass , and was in the act of
backing from the main track when No. 2
came in. Instead of stopping , No. 2 rushed
past the station and struck the engine of 128
before she could get out of tiie way , tearing
the cylinders from both engines and derail
ing the freight engine. Engineer Frank S.
Reid of the freight train was standing on the
ground and was struck by a heavy piece of
iron , receiving a fractured thigh bone and
broken rib on his left side. Fireman Walter
Bales of the passenger engine jumped and
sprained his ankle. No. 2 ran past the town
for about a mile before she could be stopped.
Had the freight engine been two feet furth
er on the main track the entire train would
have been wrecked. It seems that Engineer
J. J.Mullen of No. 2 was unable to control
the air brakes and although he reversed the
engine it was impossible to check the train
on the down grade.
Dr. G. K. Beck narrowly escaped being
crushed under the wheels of No. 4 , this
morning. He was standing on the platform
talking when the train pulled out and in step
ping off fell and rolled under the cars. The
train was stopped with the hind trucks not
more than a foot from his body which was
lying across the rail. He received a number
of bruises but nothing serious.
