The News : Tito weathur man Is re
deeming himself In Trlpp county of
kite and Is sending us an abundance
of rain which Is making the crops and
grass take on a butter color and will
make a good crop.
A hall storm passed through the
southern part of the county Wednes

lowed the course o the Indian allot
ments , and thcro Is no farming there.
Wltten school district held an elec
tion Tuesday to vote bonds In the sum
of $1,500 to erect a school building ,
nnd was carried by a big majority.
The question of location was also
voted upon but there was no decision ,
as the judges were too desirous of a
victory and managed the ballot In
such n way that when they came to
count the votes there was three more
votes than there was voters , both In
the location and bond question. An
other election will be called.

Half Inch Rain is General.
And still another big rain , amount
ing to half an Inch , foil over all of
northern Nebraska and southern
South Dakota Friday night. The rain
kept up pretty much all night , and
amounted to .48 of an inch In Norfolk.
Conditions now would seem to Indt
cato that a bumper crop of corn
couldn't be stopped by anything short
of a sudden calamity. "Corn In Ne

Jacksonville , 111. , who was In town

Oberammergnu , July 25. It seems
to me a long time since I wrote and
yet it has been but a few days. However
over , since then we have traveled
about 2,000 miles , and we have kept
moving , rain or shine , snow or heat.
We have been royally treat-id by the
Germans and have had a special car
on the railroad , and indeed we seem
quite a party , for wh n we get on a
street car , we fill it , and when we get
on a railway car wo fill it , but when
we get to a hotel we empty It.
We visited the beautiful city of Bert
lln , which Is kept up In good stylo.
Berlin is clean , healthy and prosperI
ous. The streets are swept , ( lushed
nnd scrubbed every day , and hence It
is very clean. This same thing Is true
of Dresden , but , sorry to say that
much of this work Is done by the
women , even the old women. They
scrub the streets , work In the field
pitch hay , cut and bind wheat , plow
haul wood and coal.
Germany Is raising a largo amount
of wheat and is seemingly Tory prosperous
porous Just now. We must remember ,
however , that Germany has an Income
tax and people must pay according to
their wages. Then there is a tax on
erory check , pill or receipt. In fact
when you pay your hotel bill , which
la much higher than in the United
States and you got much less for your
money , you must put a little red stamp
K/ on your bill. That is , the hotel man
puts It on , but you pay for It.
Few Germans Get Drunk. | <
The Germans are seemingly good I <
people and flno citizens , but they do
drink a lot of beer , but somehow they
don't get drunk , but if they do , there
will be half n dozen pollconum watch *
t\K \ and the least disturbance the'y
Irunkcn man makes at ouco ho Is hus
tled off to Jail. They don't get a cnb
nnd have him driven to his home as
s done in American cities often times.
No , over here , rich or poor , high or
ow. the drunkard Is punished ; nnd
.his IH just nnd fair that the rich man
should suffer the wuno penalty as the
ioor man for n similar crime.
Manhood should nlwnys ho at n pro-
nlum nnd IT It Is not In America , then
hero Is no place in the whole world
where It Is.
Germany is also a country of a pro-
ectlve tariff. This , some say , helps
he country , nnd others say it hinders.
While in Berlin we went out to the
summer palace of the katsor at Pots-
lam , which Is a very beautiful city
and has a marvelous palace. The
apartments are luxurious and mam-
notli nnd the grounds are delightful
and here during about live months of
the your the kaiser enjoys a part of
ils $2,000,000 yearly salary , but of
course the royal palace In Berlin is
the finest building the Germans have ,
nnd this Is almost good enough for
the president of the United States.
Any'ono will readily notice a thrift
and prosperity about the German em-
lire which is not soon In other Euro-
> oan countries , while Holland , Bellum -
; lum , Italy and Franco seem to bo
joins back and falling In business and
commercial enterprise , yet Germany
Is growing richer and stronger. Wo
were all much delighted to get good
> read nnd cakes In Germany.
Got Cucumber for Butter.
Each day as we go from place to
ilnco we have some new and strange
experience. It was Just the other day
that Professor , who professes
to speak German , went Into a store to
buy a lunch to take with him to cat
while on the train , and among other
things he got some butter nt least he
thought ho ordered butter , but when
he got on the train and opened up his
lunch ho found his butter was a large
It Is surprising how few people
there are In Europe that do not speak
English , but it is being more and more
taught In the schools over here and Is
greatly needed by these people In busi
ness. In fact , it would bo a great ad
vantage to our boys and girls if they
were not only taught Gorman In the
high school , but wore also taught
French and Italian , because so many
Americans are coming to Europe each
year nnd many of these are at the
mercy of the land-gulls of these for
eign countries. It is estimated that a
third of the business In Europe Is kept
going by American tourists. Amer
icans make one great mistake in com
ing over to Europe to bo driven about
my many of the Impolite greedy
money fiends and accept and pay for
accommodations here that they would
not look at at home. Their mistake is ,
they do not see the beauty and great
ness of their own land first. There Is
no land that can equal America , for
she towers high above every king-
horn , empire and throne. With us
every man is born to bo a king and
every woman a queen. And wo our
selves are to be blamed and justly so
If wo fall. We must all demand the
enforcement of our laws and the pun
ishment of the lawbreakers. Our
young people should always be taught
the greatness of life nnd the unspeak
able blessings of our unbounded lib
erties and guard these securely.
The farming land In Germany Is not
fenced off like It Is In our country , but
each person's land is marked by cor
ner stones. Besides , the soil Is very
productive and at this season there Is
a great rush on harvesting the oats ,
rye nnd wheat.
Germany Has Trees.
The country Is greatly beautiful on
account of the thousands of pine
groves that have been planted all over
the German empire. This timber is
for wood , building , carving work and
general beauty. It seems to me that
we need to plant trees , in the states ,
for there are vast acres which if plant
ed with trees in a few years would be
a fortune to the owner and then often
this land is useless unless so used.
On leaving Berlin we took a fast
express train to Dresden , the capital
of Saxony , a splendid city , called the
Paris of Germany.
It Is peculiar how people hold to old
tools and old ways In Europe. For ex
ample , we saw the women and men
cutting wheat with a scythe and sickle
nnd binding It with the hands. Much
of the work in the cornfields Is done
Prices Higher Than Here.
Dresden Is a city 01 GO.OOu people.
It I Is situated on the Elbe river , which
has 1 been spanned by an old wooden
bridge I , but which is being replaced
with a magnificent stone bridge. The
prices I of most manufactured articles
are higher in Dresden than in Berlin ,
and in both are higher than In Amor-
lea I , where you get better goods than
in I Europe and for less money. In
Dresden I wo visited the Zwlnger ( Roy
al picture gallery ) , the Royal palace ,
the cathedral and the green vault , In
which the crown jewels of Saxony are
kept , besides other less Important
places. We were most generously
treated at Hotel Donath , located in
the heart ofthe city , and when we left
the landlady gave each of us a pres
ent. This is an uncommon courtesy ,
especially over here , for most hotel-
keepers send the porter to the station
to tell you that you forgot to tip the
maid , the boots , the clock-winder , or
the sausage grinder.
At every station from which we
leave or at which we arrive , there Is
a commotion , for we hare a wagon-
load of baggage , make some noise , and
often the train must bo held a few
minutes until we can unload our be
longings. But somebody is always
careless and loses something , as pocketbooks
et-books , coats , watches , dresses.
Well , every day has some new excite
ment , I can not understand why
American people are careless when
' . they travel. After they are warned
you must simply lot them learn by
Where Christmas Toys Are Made.
I was slnd to meet ur. uettys and
Dr. Hoach again while In Berlin. They
plan to get homo about the tenth of
September ; nnd the Methodist preach
ers of Nebraska are very busy at this
time getting ready for their confer
ence sessions , which I trust will bo
my good fortune to enjoy In a few
weeks. But I must hasten with my
letter , nnd thus hastening we left
Dresden nnd after an all-day ride wo
reached Nuremberg , a very quaint old
city , but yet a great manufacturing
center. Hero It Is that many of our
toys and Christmas presents are made ,
and wo learned that our good friend
Saint Nick or Santa Cluus has left a
very largo order for toys and dolls for
boys nnd girls in America.
Christmas is a great day in the lives
of most people , and to the poor boys
and girls It Is the one happy day In
the year If they get a present.
In Nuremberg wo visited the old
castle , torture chamber , St. Law
rence's church , the Tugoud Brunnen ,
the fountain of Neptune , the house of
Hans Sachs the cobler-poet , the house
of Durer the great painter , and the
Bratwurstglockeln the famous old sau
sage house , where only sausages and
beer arc served , and here we took a
meal. This house Is always crowded
nnd I should think that the proprietors
make n fortune every year.
From Nuremberg our Journey Is
south to Munich , the capital of Ba
varia , and a charming city. Some of
the Temple party are very lively people
ple and sometimes these say on reachIng -
Ing a strange city that they can find
their way themselves , and I say , "All
right. " Then away they go ; but oh ,
their experiences ! they always get
lost and have to hire a cabman to
bring them back to the hotel. Real
ly these experiences would 1111 a book.
Somebody Is always out of money and
must borrow from the others , for you
can't go far over hero without money.
On Wrong Side of Street. I 1
watching a party of American women I '
walking on the left side of the street
Instead of the right. I looked about
for a pollceeman for I knw one would
soon come and make them cross on
the other side of the street , 3.9 ( jure
enough I saw him coming , BO I stroll *
ed along and watched , and the poor
women looked scared and frightened.
Then I began to laugh and told them
I wanted to see them taken In by a
policeman. After all I have had great
satisfaction In helping to Inform pee
pie from America , who are over hero
for the first time , and who don't know
where to buy railroad tickets or what
hotel to go to , what tips to pay and
100 other troubles ; nnd sometimes I
have to put both men and women out
of a car that is reserved for us , and
in which they have gone by mistake' '
or otherwise. It was only yesterday
that I put two big Americans out.
They didn't want to go , but I said
"You must , for you are In the wrong |
car. " The position I have had this
summer is a pleasant one , but by no
means an easy task , for I must deal
with officers and trainmen of the rail
roads , hotel keepers , custom house of-
fleers , agents of steamship companies ,
bankers , newspaper editors , priests ,
cabmen , royal post offlcers and the
representatives of kings and queens
as well as United States consuls and
ambassadors , and \ can assure you
that of such a variety of people I must
deal with that some of my duties are
But we must hasten , again I have
a party at the famous play called the
Passion Play at Ober-Ammergau , a
city of 2,000 people , not far from
Munich. It was my good fortunee to
atteud the first play this year and that
was on May 16. The Amer river rune
through the city. While here I heard
that Miss McCoy of Madison , Neb. ,
was at the play the same day. I was
sorry I did not see' her as that would
have been a message fronii home.
Passion Play Maks Money.
About 4,500 to 5,000 people see the
play every day that it is given , which
means about $10,000 for each perform
ance , besides the thousands of dollars
spent for cards , wood-carving , hotels
and cabs ; so that this is as good as
a gold mine for these peasants , and
they are Just human and love money
like the most of us. Hotels and rooms
are very high , and the accommoda
tions are poor. This little town Is In
a narrow valley surrounded by the
Bavaria Alps , which are always cov
ered with snow. The landscape Is
very beautiful , but nbout the only im
portant crop that is raised Is hay and
we saw many of the women cutting ,
pitching nnd hauling hay nnd only a
few men at work.
The Americans surely have a much
higher standard of life than these poor
creatures over here , who are old b
fore they are 20 years of age. Bavaria
Is not nearly so prosperous and fer
tile In production as Is Germany.
Being nt this time about 8,000 miles
from home , I will close by saying we
go to Innsbruck and Veenlc next.

Tilden and Oakdale Win.
Tilden , Neb. , Aug. 13. Special' to
The News : Tilden played the fourth
game of the league series on the homo
ground yesterday , winning handily
from Clenrwater. The contest was
ono of the prettiest ever seen in Til-
den. The visitors had the advantage
In weight and experienced players and
the fans looked for defeat. But the
youngsters of which the home team
Is mainly composed showed really re
murkable head work and the support
given the battery was superb. Not
the slightest unpleasantness marred
the game and the large attendance
was treated to as clean an exhibition
of baseball as could be wished for.
Clearwater was first to bat and the
first man up went to flrst on being hit

crowd yesterday morning at the River
side park diamond , between Neligh
and Oakdale of the Elkhorn Valley
It was anybody's game until the last

What brought the fans to their feet
and was an interesting point In the
game was when the home team was
upor tholr last bat , one man on second
end and one on third , with two out
and two strikes on the batter. Here
was an opportunity of either tleing the

Paralysis TaJ < e Child.
Infantile paralysis claimed Its.flrst .
victim In north Nebraska when Qrace
Lee Hall , the 13-year-old daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. L. P. Hall of Dakota City
died Wednesday night at 11 o'clock at
her home in Dakota City. Death was
preceded by several hours of uncon
sclousness , during which time the pa
tient suffered no pain , only gradually
Thursday the little girl was playing
In the yard In front of her home when
she fell to the ground , Later In the
day she complained that her back hurt
her , but the pain was attributed to the
fall nnd little attention was paid to
It. Friday she was worse , but after
remaining In bed for n while she arose
and played the piano until the pain
forced her to stop. Then she returned
to her bed , whore she remained until
Able to Move Limbs.
When called on the case , Dr. C. H.
| Maxwell of Dakota City at once ex
pressed his fear that she hud Infantile
paralysis and ordered the other mem-1
hers of the family to remain away
from the sick room.
The child's body was not completely
paralyzed during the Illness and
there woa no time when she could not
move her arms nnd lower limbs.
According to those who cared for
the girl during her Illness , the days
were marked by a peculiar uncomfort-
ablenoss on the part of the patient
rather than by a distinct pain. She
seemed restless and could out find a I
comfortable position. During all this
time her vitality was gradually leaving
her and the members of the family
realized yesterday that her strength
could not last much longer.
There nro two younger children In
the family , one aged 10 years. The
other Is a baby of five months. Care
was taken to keep them away from
the sick girl In order to avoid the
danger of contagion.
All Precaution Used.
Infantile paralysis Is not pronounced
a contagious disease by the Nebraska
laws J ( and for this reason no quarantine
could , be placed on the Hall homo.
However on account of the agitation
that has been aroused recently In
Iowa and Nebraska , no one was al
| lowed to come Into the house and , be
cause of this precaution , it is thought
the disease will not spread.
The funeral was hold at 5 o'clock
yesterday afternoon at the home. The
services wore strictly private on ac
count of the danger of contagion , al
though the law does not require a
private funeral. Rev. W. R. Warren ,
pastor of the Dakota City Methodist
Episcopal church , officiated. Inter
ment , was In Dakota City cemetery.
This is said to tie the flrst case or
Infantile paralysis in Dakota City and
the citizens of the town are alarmed.

Cut to Death by Steam Plow.
Colome. S. D. , Aug 12. Special to
The News : Ernest DroegmJUer Of
Wagner , n member of the plow gang
of J. J. Donovan , of Dallas , met In-
stunt death in a frightful manner last
Tuesday morning near the homestead
of L. H. Thornes , six miles northwest
of Colome , wuen he accidentally fell
from the rear of the engine beneath
the heavy breaking plows just behind.
The twelve plowa ground slowly over
the young man's body as did the front
wheel of the large gas tank before
"Dad" Hnskins , who had heard Droeg-
millcr's scream and had hastened to
aid him , rould reach the helpless vie-
tiii. Mr. Hnskins succeeded In pulling
the body from under the rear wheels
of the tank , but it was too late. The
plows had crushed the life out of their
prey and had badly mangled him.
The crews of the two engines , plows
and tanks had passed throIt Colomo
early in the morning on their way
to do some breaking near Winner.
The accident happened near tno claim
of L. H. Themes. None of the gang
seem to know just how it happened ,
except Mr. Hasklns , who heard the
.scream of young Droegtnlller and ho
knows little more than that. The
.rst the rest of the men knew was
when they heard a woman crying to
them timt one of the'r ' men had fallen
and was being ground beneath the
plows. When they ran back they
found him dead.
Members af the crow came to
Colome and notified the states attor
ney , who , In view of the facts , it be
ing plain accident , decided fliat no In
quest was necessary. The body was
brought to Colome Tuesday afternoon
where It was taken In charge by un
dertaker Rubash. An examination of

Catholic Church a > Winner.
Winner , S. D. , Aug. 12. Special to
The News : The collar and founda
tion for the Catholic church at Win
ner has been completed nnd carpent
ers are busy putting up the frnmo
work of the main building. This will
be the largest Catholic church In
Tripp county nnd people nro justly
proud of the edifice which will soon
bo In readiness for them. It Is the
desire of the people to also locate n
Catholic school at Winner nnd the securing -
curing of same seems very probable.
Certainly , with Winner located as It
Is In the center of the county , the lo
cation of such a school there would
not be amiss , but would be of great
benefit for all concerned.
Business buildings and residences
are In process of construction In all
parts of the city , and now though
but six months old , Winner Is a city of
close to a thousand population.
