Three attorneys , including M. F.
Harrington of O'Neill , two physicians
nnd two claim agents were seated In

on collision occurred In the Northwest
ern yards at Fremont last Sunday
morning. Immediately after the wreck

came very busy , each in his own ca
pacity. The claim agents soon had
every man's name in their books ; the
physicians soon found that no one was
hurt , and the attorneys assured themselves
selves that there wore no professional
calls for them. This information is
taken from a statement of Dr. W. II.
Pllger of this city , who was Included
In the medical staff on the coach. Dr.
Pllger was on his way to Omaha with
a patient and reports that there was
no excitement in the car after or dur

ples to go to the fair. The high school
was not included in the exhibit.
WOMAN AND HER
A Development of the "Fainting Hab
It" of Fifty Years Ago.
Brooklyn Eagle : I understand that
the work-cure , Instead of the rest-cure
is now the specific recommended foi
nerves , " said the Brooklyn club woman ,
man , "and this suggests a relurn ol
the reign of common sense , a kind
of renaissance of uncommon sense
and I herald It as a splendid idea ;
Under this new regime of materlr
medica , Instead of sending nervous
women to sanitariums , where thej
meet other women who have nerves
and with whom they can talk eacl
other to a standstill , comparing notes
and telling hysterical stories nbou >
how they behaved on various occa
slons , they are sent to the countr
to work. Men also are benefited aftei
the same scheme. An old New Yorl
run-a-rounder , who was down and Hit
apparently for the last time , has ac
tually regained his conllnully o
thought and his health this summe
through literally making hay while tin
sun shines ; next winter he will clincl
the benefits by doing the woodchor
- per's act , and by next spring he wll
have a recorded deed to the life ho
- only has a lease on at present. Thu
the farm has become the city man'
specific for everything the city ind
done for him. About all that city ife
and overwork leaves him is nerves
nnd if ho has got the sand and the
sense to gather up his poor old tatto
tered nervous system nnd take it t
the country for a year , he has the
chance to como back ns good as nov

vous man ! I'm always afraid of t

somebody to Indulge nervous peopl
In their selfishness "
"Don't you think you are just a lit- '
tie harsh ? " I demurred.
"Nervous people have ruined the
boarding house business , " declared the
club woman , paying no attention t
my interruption. "All people can d
when they are worn out with the
nerves of old mold aunts or dopendon
widows or mother-in-laws , is to Ind
them a pleasant room in some Ice
toardlng houue , For a certain class
ot pensioners whom no one wants

simply Invaluable. Those objection-

'Unen i was a girl no ono had any

luioied. Nowadays wo can't drink tea
because it makes us nervous. Even
babies have nerves. Dogs and cuts

you go out in the early motnlng and

leet you will be benefited. The os-
teopatlo treatment and tno massage

same. Women pack their best gowns
in a trunk and hlo themselves to a
sanitarium where it's a house party all

Since woman ha\e become so self'
lellant , they no longer can hold their
husbands , but there Is ono typo of
woman who holds him , all right , and
that is the nervous woman ,
"Thoonian witli nones is a de
velopment Irom the woman who faint

kind , who llouilshed lllty yearn ago ,
U was the fashion then lor women to

Is not the fashion lor women to clln
nowadays , there are certain unfash
ionable woman who are always be

nerves is up to date enough in everj
way but in thought.
"The Complains ? Probably yoi
know them. They tell you how they
couldn't sleep last night , and how they
heard the clock strike every hour , and
. how the cats in the next yards kep
them awake , and how the dogs in the
next block barked , and how many
- mosquitoes theio were , and how the
IMes botheicd them in the morning ,
and how hot the night was , and how
they never could stand hot weather.
"The Complains have a hard time.
They forget to mail their letters , and 1
street cars pass them without stop
ping , and they miss their trains , and 1
they have indigestion , and their legs
- iiche , and their shoes pinch , and they ,
can't see as well as they used to , and 1
they have rheumatism , and they sit in
. drafts , and a man who owes them
money wont pay it , and their servant'
. leaves , and they hate church bells and
lawn mowers and cuckoo clocks and
phonographs. The Complains are
such nervous people !
"When'the Complains can't get your
ear to toll you all about their hard
luck , then they write to you about it. ;
When they can't get you on the phone
they can send you an account of their
worries by mail. They can get a de-
tailed account of their miseries into
jour hands through the malls , regis-j
. tered , so that they are sure you re-1 !
ceive it , and learn how miserable they
arc. It takes the Complains to ana i-
lyze the psychological moment , and
interpret dreams and foresee hard
luck. Somebody always borrows their
books and tjieir umbrellas. They are
always having operations for appendi 1-
citis , or they are on the verge of ner
vous prostration. "
NO STANDARD OIL SIREN.
J. D. Archbold Contradicts Mrs. French

0- Then Thomas W. Lawson of Boston
rushed into print with the assertion
that he knew of the red-haired fas
, cinator employed by Standard OH to ;

John D. Archbold , vice president
and director of the Standard OH com
, pany , was informed of the state
ments of Mrs. French and Mr. Law-
son. Through his secretary , Mr. Arch-
Ut bold made this response :
"Standard Oil does not employ red-
: 1.aired sirens In Its business. Thuae ?
statements are n tissue of falsehoods
ridiculous upon their face and unseem
ly. I cannot make my denial of these
- reports too emphatic. There has never
of been any basis for these absurdities
regarding a woman such as you describe
scribe acting as a secret agent for
the Standard Oil company. "

A FAMINE IN CLEAR HAVANAS.
Local Consumers May Suffer by a Big
Strike in Tampa.
Kansas City Star : Do you smoke
clear Havana cigars ? You do ? All
right. Prepare for the worst.
The cigar makers in Tampa , Fla. ,
where nearly all Ihe clear Havana ci
gars smoked In this country are made ,
nreVn a strike. Forty of the largest
cigar factories in the world nro shut
down and intend to remain closed. In
Key West they still are making clear
Havana cigars , but Tampa has sup
plied 00 percent of the trade of the ,
United States , therefore , with the fac-11
torie ? there not on a rolling basis ,
someone must suffer.
It is hard to estimate how many
clear Havana cigars are sold in Kansas - i
sas City every day. One dealer this I
morning estimated that there was a
demand for at least 5,000. In the |
United States every day millions arel ,
The strike in Tampa has been on
for two months , but as the big jobbers
had Ihelr summer supply of the Ha-
vana article in advance , the trade has
not suffered yet. But unless that )
strike ends and it doesn't look as If
It would now clear Havana cigars' '
soon will bo a scarce article. '
A cigar dealer explained this morn
Ing why nearly all "Havana" cigars
are made In Tampa or Key West.
There Is a heavy duty on a Havana
made cigar , therefore , the men who
supply the smokers of Havana cigars
purchase the raw product In Cuba , I'
ship it to Tampa nnd Key West and
have the cigars made there. j' '
The cigar makers in these Florida'
towns are Cubans and Spaniards for
the most part , but they recently have
become imbued with the American
Idea of unionism. And being of Latin
extraction , they have become imbued
with the union spirit In a manner that' '
would make real American union men' '
ashamed of their weak efforts. The
strike In Tampa several times has
closely resembed a Soutli American
The union cigar makers have made
demands upon the manufacturers
which the latter declare are absolutely.
unjust and impossible. For instance ,
under the proposition submitted to the |
manufacturers , the employers cannot' '
discharge a man without referring the i
matter to the union. Ho cannot change
the size and shape of a cigar without
asking the union whether the making
of the new style of cigar will cost
more or less.
The manufacturers employ thou
sands of persons , practically all the
working population of Tampa. They
can't leave Tampa unless they quit
business. The climate of Tampa Is
particularly suited to the working of
Havana tobacco into the shape of the
cigars. When Havana cigars are made
in Tampa they still are Havana cigars ,
because they are made by Cuban and
Spanish workmen and in a climate
that is the same as that of Cuba.
If the manufacturers should go to
New York or Chicago or Kansas City
nnd start their factories , they could
obtain baled tobacco from Cuba real
Havana Jobacco but the climatic con
ditions would affect Its llavor ; It
would have to bo subjected to chemi
cal treatment and when finally It was
turned out into nn alleged clear Ha
vana cigar It would bo nothing of the
Hut no matter. Local smokers still
will have domestic cigars , Including
cheroots , to fall back on.

LARGEST CROP ON ROSEBUD
A Few More Days Without Frost Will
Make a Bumper Crop.
Gregory , S. D. , Sept. 14. Special to
The News : Another week or ten days
without a frost and the Rosebud farm
er will be assured of the largest crop
of j corn this fertile stretch of country
has J ever produced. Not only will it
be the largest crop , but it will like
wise J be the heaviest crop over raised
In this country. In the spring and
early ' summer this season , when other
sections ' of the country wore suffering
for j rain , random showers fell over the
Rosebud country sufficient to keep the
young crop growing right along. Lat
er ' In the middle of the summer heavy
rains ' fell at frequent Intervals , and
for a period of nearly a month , reach
ing ' over part of July and August , the
rains ' were very frequent. The av
erage ' during that period was almost
a ' rain per day. Those rains came at
u ' season witli favorable weather for
corn , and as a result of these ideal
conditions the crop today is the heav
iest the Rosebud country has over
Ordinarily , most of the corn In this
country Is past the stage where frost
will do It damage at this time of year.
This year , however , the showers have
had a tendency to keep It green and
growing later than usual , and but lit
tle of the crop is safe from the frost
at this time. It is fast reaching ma
turity , however , and another ten days
will see the great bulk of the crop far
enough along to bo safe.
The nights have been cool for some
days , but as yet there has been no
frost , except In a few of the lowest
places along the creeks. And there
the damage has been slight so far.
