novel scheme something unique and
is worthy the notice of the community.

Tuesday afternoon word was received
by relatives here in town that Gordon
Bowie had met an accidental death near
his home on the Francis Dunn farm live
miles north of Rogers. Tuesday morn
ing he left his farm place for the meadow
to get a load of hay. It is all supposi
tion as to how the accident happened
but this much is quite evident. After
loading the hay he started for home.
Just before driving out of the meadow
on the main road, he had to cross a
small ditch covered over with a few
broken plank, whether anything occur
red then or not is not known but by fol
lowing the wagon track it could be seen
that the team made the road nil right
and turned in the direction of home; a
few bunches of hay were found along the
road and the lifeless body of Mr. Bowie
was found in the ditch beside the road.
Louis Funk, who was plowing about a
quarter of a mile away noticed the team
running wild around the fields and went
to investigate and found Mr. Bowie. It
will probably never be known how the

Accompanied by his brother John and
an old gentlemen to whom they were
showing land, Alex Lyon was returning
in his auto from a trip to Hordville
Tuesday and while coming westward
past the Clayton farm southeast of town
ran off of the embankment near a small
bridge. The machine overturned and
the three occupants were thrown into
a deep mudhole that lies on the south
side ot tho road . Alex was caught un
der the car, the steering post pinning
him down. His head was buried in the
mud and water and it is likely that his
death was caused by suffocation. Bar
ring a few bruises the other two passen
gers were not injured jib they were sit
ting iu the rear seat and were thrown
clear of the auto when it went over.
The section men working on the Union
Pacilic about fifty rods distant saw the
accident and hurried over. With their
assistance the car was lifted 60 that the
body could be taken out. It was pro
bably fifteen or twenty minutes before
this could be done and Mr. Lyon was
dead when extricated. Dr. E. A. Ben
ton was summoned, however, and he
arrived in an auto in abont thirty min

body was placed in the Myers auto and

Sea Rules ef the Read.
On the sea it Is even more lmportaat
than on land that there should be well
defined rules of the road. While there
are "ocean lanes," vessels do not move
along well marked lines, like railway
trains. They cross and recross each
other's tracks. Moreover, there Is no
air brake which can halt an ocean
steamer within a few yards. Rules
of the road at sea are based upon com
mon sense aud experience. In general,
when two vessels under steam are
meeting each other end on they follow
the same rules as with us with vehi
cles t hat is. eacff steers to the star
board or right. One short blast from
the ship's whistle means that she Is
taking the starboard course, two blasts
meau that she Is taking her course to
port, three that she Is going full speed
astern. Should there be risk of col
lision between a steam vessel and a
sailing vessel it Is the duty of the
steam vessel as the more manageable
to keep out of the way of the other.
For the same reason a sailing ship
which Is running free is required to
keep out of the way of one which Is
running close hauled. TraveL

A Special Offer.
The big daily papers find it necessary
and profitable to keep increasing their
subscription list, and one of the fa-test
growers is the Lincoln StutH Journal.
This splendid state daily has jiwt open
ed up another bigsnbscripiion otmp'iign
offering the paper to Jan. 1. 1911 f t on
ly $2; with Sunday 82.50. This ncinl
rats will bring the business. The Jour
nal has s way ot ita own cutting out a
lot of expensive methods of getting sub
scribers snd making the low rate to ita
readers direct The people of the state
as never before are looking to The Journ
al for the real doings in the state. It is
building up its business through relia
bility and enterprise, especially in cover
ing the atate news . Another good thing
about The Journal is its policy of
stoppiag every paper when the time is
up. It you don't pay for it you don't
get it Md when you do pay for it you
are only paying for your own paper, not
helping to pay for the one sent to some
deadbeat. You will like the cleancut
methods of The Journal people.

An Embarrassing Question.
Mrs. Monroe was carefully explain
ing to her small daughter Margaret
what she must do that evening. Com
pany would be there for dinner, and
Margaret was going to be allowed the
privilege of sitting at the table. She
listened very attentively and faithfully
promised to obey. During the first
part of the meal she never spoke, but
remained quiet snd thoughtful, but it
seemed a long time to her before the
dessert came. Finally a large dish
was placed near her of which the con
tents looked most appetizing. For
some time she gazed at It snd when
no longer able to resist the temptation
she reached over and put her dainty
finger deep into the jelly and cream,
then licked her finger and continued
to smack her lips with great satisfac
tion. Before the mortified mother could
say anything Margaret remarked:
"Say, mamma. Is this the jelly which
the cat licked the cream off of and you
said It didn't matter, there was more
cream?" Los Angeles Times.
Origin of Heraldry.
According to the highest authorities,
heraldry finds Its starting point in the
totemlsm of prehistoric man. In the
barbaric custom of painting or carv
ing the totem on oars, the bows and
sides of canoes, weapons, pillars In
front of houses, etc., snd In tattooing
it on the various parts of the body,
we have the real origin of the Insignia
that are so precious to the upper
tendom of today. It was In the ig
norant superstition of the savages that
he sprang from a crane or a bear or
some other animal that the various
"costs of arms" of the "big families"
of the present time found their Incep
tion. New York American.
