From llio Hand. Anion Sunders is engaged in puttinpin a ir.2 ton mlo for David Lea at his farm southwest of town. Silos art: a scarce thing in this community, and we hope to hear another year of Mr. Lee's experi ence with hin. Saturday evening last was a sad time for Frank Bump. It is the first time in yeura that he has had a day oil from labor, and he is kicking about that. As he was driving west by O'Connors farm his horse was frightened by thti bright light of an engine from behind and start ed to run. He stopped it Buddeuly by a jerk on tho lines and a bolt camo out, releasing one side of the shafts from the buggy and they bumped onto the hordes hind lege, then the horse bumped Hump out of the buggy onto Mother Earth and broke his right arm. Then the horse humped on home and a short time after kind Samaritans helped Bump home where a doctor dressed his wounds. We are sorry for Bump and wonder if his name had been different if Ins bumps would have been lesssr or wnraer. LEICJII. From tlio World. A. Klopped got badly hurt by tripping and falling down before a blind horse that would not stop when told but walked right over him stepping on his back and breaking three of his ribs. While very painful it is not dangerous. In District court, Henry B. Peitzmei er has sued the county of Colfax and the county commissioners of Colfax county, alleging that while crossing a bridge across the Maple Creek on Aug. 1, 1910, with his steam engine and separator, the bridge gave way and he was thrown with his machine and engine into the creek. He figures his damage at $3,000. lie further alleges that he sustained a broken leg. and a lacerated and bruis ed jaw and many other injuries worth Sin. 000. He also puts up a claim of S2,(MK for work lost this fall on account of his wounds and destruction of his threshing outfit. John Marek, who was tho engiueer running said engine filed his suit, alleging that he suffered dam ages in the sum of .f,000. Joseph Deppe, who was the helping hand also claims damages in the sum of $5,000 on account of injuries sustained and loss of time and wages. I.1XOSAY. From tli I'oft. The barn on the John Bodemic farm 10 miles northeast of here burned Sat urday night. His live horses and all his harness ami hay wns destroyed in the tire. It isn't known how the tire was started. Last Friday a very interesting encoun ter occurred not far from thia place. Following is the way it was reported to us While pitching bundles into a wagon Jack Tashner and John Diesburg mixed it, first using pitchforks and then after deciding to lay the Turks to one side, they finished it by scratching and the former using his pocket knife. The lat ter got a little knife wound in one of his . FRISCHHOLZ BROS. SHOES CLOTHING Gents9 Furnishing Goods RELIABLE GOODS AT RIGHT PRICES.

Tashner was arrested and fined $5 and costs. The charge was assault. While returning home fronvtown last Friday evening Peter J. Scbmitz had an accident which caused him to receive a badly broken leg. He and his hired man had been to town and were returning to the farm two miles east of here. When they had reached the big hill going ont on the Second street road the shaft came down causing the horse to get fright ened. Mr. Schmitz, in trying to stop the running animal got one foot fastened in the wheel, breaking the leg just below the knee. The "hired man" got dumped out of the buggy without getting a scratch. nELIAVOOD. From tho Gazette. lluth Harling of Pine, La., eleven years of age, was married Tuesday to Wm. Brand, aged 19. The bride can go up head. We believe ehe is the youngest bride on record. The storm which visited this vicinity abdut seven o'clock Sunday evening did bnt little damage. About 2 inches of rain fell. Corn was considerably flat tened in many fields but with dry weather it will again straighten up. Over in Polk county the storm was more severe. A dispatch from Osceola to the World Herald says that G inches of rain fell; that the Union Pacific track is under water for three fourths of a mile on either side of the station and all trains are tied up. Lightning struck the residences of U. N. Powers and 11. A. Mills, causing considerable damage. It. Walker's barn and J. Timra's granary were struck by lightning and burned. So was George Horst's granary. Mrs. Fred Shank was compelled to llee from her home, wading through water up to her shoulders with her child in her arms. A dispatch from Brunir.g Neb., dated Aug. 27. U'lo, says that several people were injured, two fatally anil two Bever ly, when a wind mill tower sixty feet high, on which were perched thirty spectators of a picnic performance party collapsed throwing the ocenpants to the ground, fatally injuring two and severely injuring two. John Knutzen had his hack broken and cannot live. John Schrock sustained what are de clared to be fatal internal injuries. James Meyer was badly bruised and cut. Henry Rasher was badly bruised and his leg broken. Others were but slight ly hurt. John Knutzen, it will be re membered, formerly lived in Bell wood. His many young friends will regret to learn of the sad accident that happened to him. Knutzen was taken to a hospi tal at Omaha where five doctors admin istered to his wounds. oure oign.

Miss Helen Schram retnrned Wednes day after a short visit with Miss Marie Raamuesen at Fremont. She was accom panied by her aunt. Mis. Loosing, of Arlington, Neb. E. L. VanAllen retursed from Neligb, where he rented a farm for the coming year, and will move his family in the spring, lie expects to rent his house and land east of town. H. L. Smith, who recently purchased the C. VanAllen residence, is getting ready to remodel and fix it up. As soon as this work ia completed Mr. Smith will move into it and make it his home, and rent his home farm. A. M. Work was called to Hastings last week to attend the funeral of hia nephew, who died in old Mexico. He said the body had to be brought over land ninety miles before a railroad was reached, as he died up in the mountains. Mr. Work retnrned from Hastings Sat urday morning. Clias. Kelley, who has the contract for putting up the new school building, has commenced work and the place for the foundation has been prepared. He will order his cement b'ocJrs this week and begin the work of construction at once. The board is anxious to have the work completed as soon as possible as the room will be needed as soon sa school opens. During the last week three Monroe properties changed hands, two resi liences and one store building. 1). H. Gipe traded the building occupied by J. E. Erekine to W. . Rohrich of Co lumbus for a stock of qneeosware and notions in that city, and Ed Farmer bought the Lenon residence property. The third transaction was the sale of the W. W. Frank residence to J. A. Baker, who will move into Monroe. A miatake in filling an oil can came very near resulting in a bad accident for Mrs. E. R. Dack Saturday. In some way their kerosene was Oiled with gaso line by mistake, and when Mrs. Dack poured, what she supposed to be kero sene, in the stove to start the Are, there was an explosion when she attempted to light it. She was burned on the face and hands, but not severely, but taking it altogether it was a very narrow escape. Emil Sallacb, formerly a resident of this locality, died in an Omaha hospital Thursday ob a result of an operation. For the last several years he has been in poor health, and this was the third operation, Prior to ten years ago Mr. Sallach lived in this locality, first on a farm north of Monroe, and later coming to Monroe and building the residence now owned and occupied by John Gib bon. He was taken to Albion Saturday for burial. Resides his wife, he leaves two son9 and one daughter, and one brother, J. E. Sallacb, all of whom re side in Albion. Here is a new way of conveying a gentle hint to a yonng man who goes to sec his tieat giil and apparently forgets what time it is. A yonng man who does not live far from Monroe was calling the other evening and when the hour be came late the young lady was wonder ing how to give him a hint to leave. Bnt the girl's mother solved the problem, in a new way. She started the alarm on the clock, and as soon as the young man heard it he made a hasty exit. The joke was too good to keep and somebody told it, so the young man has to stand con siderable good natnred joshing from his friends. GENOA. From tho Times. Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Willard returned from Oklahoma last Saturday where they spent several days. Mr. Willard says the part of Oklahoma he visited is developing rapidly and land is increasing in value. The peach crop was immense this year. Large peaches retail for 50o a bushel. Small peaches are fed to hogs, as there is no demand for them on the market. Mr. Willard has planned to return to Oklahoma the last of Septem ber and contemplates spending the win ter there. Automobile dealers who have been predicting that the growing demand for autoa would put the horse out of busi ness to a large extent, have another guess coming. According to the government census reports, there are twenty-one mil lion horses in the United States. Great as has been the development of the auto mobile, the horse still holds h9 own. What is more remarkable, horses are worth on an average ten dollars more a head than they were a year ago. The horse thus shares in the general pros perity. Ang. Smith was 81 years old last Fri day, and in order to properly celebrate the event his children got together and invaded the home in the evening, giving their aged parent a happy surprise. Sixty-two years ago Mr. Smith was a soldier in the German army fighting on the side of the government in the Re volution of 1S48. Later he came to America, and in 1861 enlisted in defense of the Union, serving in the army of the Potomac. Near the close of the war he was taken prisoner, and spent sever al months in a Confederate prison. After the war Mr. Smith came west and assisted in building the Union Pacific railway. In 1868 he hired out ss a farm hand in Platte county. In the family of the man he worked for was a young daughter. She is Mrs. Aug. Smith now. The Tws Period. The career of every successful man may be divided into two periods first, when be Is not given credit for what be knows and, second, when he Is giv en credit for what he doesn't know. Life.

Gylling was found dead this moraine having been poisoned. Mr. Gylling feels very badly over his loss" as the dog wss a great favorite or the Gylling folks, however Mr. Gylling be lieves that the poisoning was accidental having been put ont for some other purpose. The dog has been very useful, at one time giving an alarm that pre vented a bad fire at the Gylling home. The body of Ed Grossnicklaus wss found hanging in his barn this morning at his-home twelve miles southeast of this city, where be committed suicide by hanging. 'No cause is given at this time for the act. Sheriff Ware and Coroner Anderson were notified and proceeded to the scene of the tragedy. It appears that Mr. Grossnicklaus did bis morning work as usual and after wards went into hia barn and ended his life. He is well known here ss a bard working and industrious farmer. He leaves a wife and two daughters, the elder being the wife of George Chapman. Forty- four years ago in July, Mr. M. A. Mills of this city, who was then pros pecting out in the Rockies took his de parture from that part of the then worth less west back to civilization, leaving some companions, among whom was one N. E. Schriver. Mr. Mills had pros pected and found little and left a bole which he had been working to bis com panions. Mr. Schriver and others kept on with the hole and finally struck pay dirt in good quantities. He did well at mining and afterward went back east and Mr. Mills never saw or beard from him afterward till last Friday, when the gentleman who was visiting in Nebraska located Mr. Mills and came to see him. It needs no remarking that these two gentlemen are having a very enjoyable visit, Mr. Schriver is now in the stock business at ML Ayr, Indiana, and is do ing very welL ST. KDWABD . From the Advance. Nels Olson purchased the Shel Clark farm north of St. Edward last week and having sold his farm at Waboo will move bis family here in the spring. Mr. Ol son owns the 100 acres adjoining Mr. Clark's farm on the north where he lived some six or seven years ago before going to Wahoo. While on the road returning from the Fnllerton Chautauqua last Sunday in his automobile, Henry Crosier ran his car into a deep ditch, upsetting the ma chine and throwing himself and family into the mud, but happily no one was injured The accident occurred during the heavy rain which fell that night and at a point about four miles from any place of shelter and the party was com pelled to stand in the drenching rain until Geo. Rrisben who happened along picked them up. Mrs. I. Heberling came very near be ing gored to death by a mad runaway bull last evening at 'the home of her daughter, Mrs. F. F. Abbott south of town. C.F. Peterson living northeast of St. Edward had received a number of choice cattle on the evening train and when they were being nnloaded at the stock yards one of them broke away and ran south to the Abbott farm. Mr. Heberling had gone out to the mail box and wss returning to the bouse and when half way to the house the animal turned into the yard and made straight for her. She wss knocked down bnt managed to get to her feet again and ran to the fence in a hope of getting on the other side and ont of the animal's reach. She was only about half way through the fence when the bull rushed at her again and this time butted her through the fence with such force that her lower limb was broken. She is now lying in a critical condition as the re sult of her injuries. CF.DAR IUPIDS From the Outlook. Miss Mable Nicholsen of Monroe. Nebr., and Miss May Hoppeck of Ful lerton, who have been visiting at the Realty home, returned to their homes Tuesday. During the rain Snnday night Charley Young lost sixty fine, young chiokenp. The chickens were moating in boxes on the ground and the water raised up into the boxes, drowning the lot. While returning home from the Fi.l lerton chautanqua last Sunday night, Mr. Larson and wife and two children came near losing their lives by the ma chine running off a 20-foot bridge. The scene of the ancident was near the old Battenhorst place, about three miles south of Cedar Rapids. The night wss dark and rainy and the roads were very muddy from the all day's rain. The road leading to the bridge at this place makes a sharp turn and when the auto struck the bridge no doubt the machine skidded off to the side. The machine and four occupants went off the bridge, to the ground 20 feet below. Mrs. Lar son was very badly injured, having six or eight ribs broken, also her collar bone. The rent of the party received but few bruises. ALBION. From tho New. Of course, those merchants of Albion who paid their money to an Iowa con cern for the insertion of their ads in sn advertising circular, fully endorse the practice of ordering goods from foreign catalogue houses. This ahonld be due notice to the local papers to cease their campaign for patronizing home indus tries. Many citizens wonder why, when a new building is to be erected, and there ia ample vacant room on the rear of the lot, that it is not used to pile the build ing material upon instead of occupying the street. Of course everybody is will ing to pnt up with inconvenience and "eye-sorts whea it is necessary, but it is not slwsys necessary. O. D. Moon of 8L Edward, suffered a fractured arm last Thursday at the Old Settlers' pioato while plsying ball. He waa playing with the Boone nine and was batting when the ball struck him on the forearm fracturing it A doctor wss summoned at onos snd the broken arm was sst. Friday morning he returned hoaae. As soon ss he game was over a purse of $10 waa raked for Moon's bene fit Mr. Moon has played ball for sev eral years on local teams. INDIANS' PRIDE. Native Reserve snd Conservatism Keep Them Apart From Whites. Even among the Five Civilized Tribes there still remain many communities wholly full blood. These people drift together, following their own Ideas of life, speaking their own language and retiring before the whites with the same strange reserve and pride that characterized them in their wild state. Although claiming the name of sev eral Christian denominations and fol lowing certain beliefs with devout ness, their ways of thinking, their dis like of Innovation and their aversion to work have made them withdraw to the mountain districts. Whether this so called reserve comes from pride or a distrust of the white man or ti midity or merely a stubborn conserva tism, it produces the same result; the backward and nonprogressive Indian. There Is, too, a certain mystic quality that holds the Indian aloof, says tho Southern Workmana quality that we do not understand and with which there Is little sympathy In our every day life. He Is so much of a philos opher that he looks upon our strenu ous life with some contempt, dismiss ing our efforts for personal comfort and material advancement with the remark that "the white man Is heap trouble to himself.' While people call him lazy because ho docs not core to exert Maif for those things which seem Important to whites, yet to some religious ceremonial or some ar tistic expression his application is per sistent, and the -patience of an In dian has passed into a proverb. WORKED UKE A CHARM. the Jsined Card Club In Order to Forget Her Work. An Atchison woman who found the monotony of dishwashing, cooking and laundry work proving too much for sanity was urged to Join a card club. "It will take your mind off your work," she was told, and so she Joined. In order to attend she had to get up that morning an hour earlier to get her work done; a neighbor girl was hired to stay with the baby, and when, flustered, nervous and tired, she left the house fifteen minutes late sho was followed by the screams of her three children because they couldn't be token along. But she bad her mind taken off her work at the card party. Of that there Is no doubt, for when she made a mlsplay her partner, a perfect lady, walked right over her, then picked her up and shook her, and then chewed on her for fifteen min utes. 8he became so frightened that the little wits she had under her hair fled, and she made another mlsplay with another partner, and this woman, also a perfect lady, talked to her in a way the woman should have been ashamed to talk to a dog. It was more than she could endure, and, weeping like a sprinkling cart she got up and went home. "It did even more than It promised, she told her husband. "Nothing has ever happened to me In all my life that so effectively took my mind off my work. Why, there were times when I even forgot I had you and all the chil dren. Atchison Globe.

It lies also where the girl just convalescent persists In taking part In a long anticipated dance.

The candidate for the placeiof coach man had been weighed and was not wanting, according to his new mis tress' lights. Then the question of his name, which was Patrick, came up.

To UTS Jon Kite T" ,tO llTt THE WORD "GOWN." '"" It First Came Inte Use In the Four teenth Qentury. Female costume In the tenth century was classical in its simplicity. The women wore long, loose, flowing skirts reaching to the feet and a draped "cote," or upper garment. Chaucer, who died in 1400, when Henry IV. was king, frequently uses the word cote. In the "Canterbury Tales" he depicts the ser-gcant-at-ktw as wearing a "medley cote," which no doubt means a coat of many colors, while the miller he describes as wearing "a whyte cote." It was in the fourteenth century that the word "gown" first came Into use. An anonymous author In no mild words finds fault with the fashion of his days. He writes that "the com mons were besotted in excess of ap parel. In wide surcoats reaching to their Ioyns, some In a garment reach ing to their heels, close before and strowting out on the side, so that on the back they make men seem women, and these they call by a ridiculous name gown." As early ns the twelfth century wom en's cotes were made with trains, and In the first quarter of the thirteenth century a bishop moralizes early on their vanity for wearing trained cotes, some of which contained seven ells and a half." Westminster Gazette. TIBURON ISLAND. Its Waters Are titerally Swarming With Ferocious Sharks. Less than three thousand miles from the city of New York and about a third of that distance from San Fran cisco there Is situated, in the upper reaches of the gulf of California, a small island, worthless even for so mean n puriose as the raising of goats, but nevertheless n center of attraction for the ethnologists and nrchneolo-" gists of the old and new worlds for many generations. This rocky peak, rising from the quiet waters of the gulf, is known ns Tiburon Island. Tlburon Is a Spanish word which, translated into English, means "shark." Tlie waters around the islet arc literally swarming with these tigers of the sen. and the inhabitants of the island are said to be no less fe rocious than the sharks. Tiburon Is peopled with a handful of Indians, the only aborigines of their kihd in the world, known as Seris. They are re puted to bo cannibals, to be so fierce that none of the mainland tribes of Mexican mlskins ever dare invade their shores and to possess the secret of manufacture of a peculiarly deadly poison with which they prepare their arrows before battle. Wide World Magazine. The Dragon Fly. The oldest extant poem about a drag on fly is said to have leen composed 1,440 years ago by the Eniieror Yuria ku of Japan. One day. while this em peror was hunting, say the ancient records, a gadfly came and bit his arm. Therewith a dragon fly pounced upon the gadfly and devoured it. Then the emperor commanded his ministers to make an ode in praise of the dragon fly. But as they hesitated how to be gin he himself composed a poem in praise of the insect, ending with the words: Even a creepins insect Walts upon the creat Lord. Thy form It will bear, O Yamato, land of tho dragon fly! And in honor of the dragon fly the place of the Incident was called Akit suno, cr the moor of the dragon fly.
