A hall storm passed through the southern part of the county Wednes day , but did little damage us It fol 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. ACCUSES OMAHA POSTMASTER. Pernicious Activity In Politics is Charged by F. A. Shotwelt. Omaha , Aug. 12. Franklin A.

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 braska looks much better than In Iowa or Illinois , " said I.

Things Cost MorejAbroad. 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 cucumber. 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 by hoeing. 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 experience. 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 very disagreeable. 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. ( News correspondent , Chaa. Wayne Ray. July 25 , Ober-Ammergau , Ba varla. Big Crowd at O'Neill. O'Neill , Neb. , Aug. 13. Yesterday's races were witnesses by another large crowd and some good racing was done. Speed On , the fifth from the pole in the 2:17 : free-for-all trot or pace , took the pole on the first turn and held It without trouble through the heat. The performance of Speed On In this race was marvelous , taking the three heats against a combination of fast horses and good drivers. Between races the crowd was treat' ' ed to an exhibition automobile race. The race was two miles or four times around tmj track. The distance was covered In 3:17. : Rain coming up at 5 o'clock prevent ed the running race , but this race , together with novelty trotting nnd pacing races will be pulled off today. The carnival continues also , * uid a good day's sport will bu given. The meet has Ueun free from uny features to mar the outlined program , except rnln , and has been a success from the tup of the first bell. Starter S. J.

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 by the first hall delivered. Careful batting and an error on second let In Thompson and the side was out with I'a score to Its credit. The second Inning 'an ning was a shut-out for both sides and Clearwater ran In another chalk | In ' the third. Tilden followed and St.ewo.rt nnd UJry passed safely ever tint homo pinto. Prom this on the vis itors fulltid to ndvanco further than third , but In the seventh Nelson and Krumm scored , giving Tilden the second end game of the league and a perfect score In the series. The game was devoid of spectacular plays , with the | exception of a double piny when Hales . caught a fly In long right field nnd returned the ball to Krumm on third' ' base Just a second or so before Moses. reached the bag. but quick , snappy | work was In evidence on both sides and has stirred up a baseball spirit In Tilden that has Iain dormant for sev eral years. The business men closed up at 3 o'clock and practically all went out to the diamond and shared In the fun.

Special to The News : The best and fastest game of baseball played here this sea son was witnessed by a fair-sized crowd yesterday morning at the River side park diamond , between Neligh and Oakdale of the Elkhorn Valley league. It was anybody's game until the last man was out In the ninth inning. 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 score or winning the game by a single , but luck was not In favor of Neligh and the batter drove a fly to deep cen ter which landed safely In a mitt. Fin al result , Neligh 1 ; Oakdalo 2. Phillips for the home team had the better of the argument In strike-outs , getting nine of the visitors , and fieldIng - Ing his position nicely during the en tire game. Ray for the visitors han dled his position in the box with duo. credit , accepting two line drives , by which a double play was accomplished.

Mr. Purviance passed away at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. 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 growing weaker. 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 death came. 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. It In not known In what manner the Sjtxjeutied. girl became afflicted with the disease. Speed On Won Free-For-AII. 0'Nolll , Neb. , Aug. 12. Special to The News !

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.
