There are numerous complaints
in the county against men who have

that any man having a spark of intel

such a thing. The law is very em
phatic against this dirty and very
dangerous practice, and for the good
of everybody and safety to human
life, every man who pollutes the
streams of water should be dealt with
according to law.

From Dr. H. Meade we learn par
ticulars of the accident to John and
Frank Parch at Platte Center, known
as the brick makers. They were un
loading corn from a wagon in Kehoe's
elevator, when the team took fright
at something and ran about four hun
dred feet, knocking both dowu. It
seems that John had hold of the nigh
horse by the bridle and Frank had
hold of the reins, and when the horses
started they tried to get away but
could not, and when the boys fell the
wheels passed over Frank's right
thigh causing an oblique fracture of
the femur; the other side of the
wagon passed over John's breast,
fracturing four ribs, under right arm.
The Doctor says the boys are mend

his wife to get far enough away from
the track so that the train would not
draw her into its current, both step
ped off the track. The engine passed
by them, but Mr. Martz, it is said,
while endeavoring to keep his hat
from being blown off his head, leaned
too much toward the train aad was
struck by one of the coaches, en the
right side and on the heed, his right
arm being broken in three places, his
neck being broken (probably by the
sudden blow upen the side) this mo

car, and being thrown violently to

left shoulder was dislocated. He did
not return to consciousness, and
