Gustav Weis, the 15 year-old-son
of Mrs. Dietrich Brunken, living east
of town, met with an accident Sunday
which may cost him his life. With a
younger brother lie accompanied his
parents to Emil Schoen's, on the Ed
I'erkinson farm, two miles southeast
of town. The two boys, accompanied
by Schoen's ll-yearjold-son, went to
Shell creek. The Weis boys had, un
known to the old people, brought with
them a 22 rifle and a 32 revolver, and
of course they took them along to the
creek. In some manner which the
boys are unable or unwilling to tell,
Gustav received from the revolver a
bulletin the left side, below the ribs,
which penetrated the intestines. He
was quickly brought to town and tak
ing to Dr. Benthack's residence,
where Dr. Voss was called from Col
umbus in consultation, but it was de

boy is resting easy and it will be a

Although the office of coroner is not
a remunerative one, Ben Person has
the satisfaction of knowing that he is
the only candidate in the field for an
office that was originally instituted in
the year 1194. In early days, says a
writer in The Union, the coroner had
wider and more general jurisdiction
than he now enjoys. Coroners were
wont to "hold their views" not only
ujxm deaths where an investigation
was considered necessary, but also up
on various serious crimes which were
treated as occasion for the raising of
revenue for the crown. The mission
of the coroner of the state was not
alone to investigate crimes and bring
felons to justice. He superintended
the forfeiture of money and personal
property by criminals to the crown,
for the recording of which he was responsible.
From the Leader
The Misses Eliza and Mae Kenedy
departed this week for Devil Lake,
Wisconsin, where they will spend a
few weeks vacation.
Mr. and Mrs. John Reimers went

friend. Mr. Stevenson came up from
Columbus to look after the cream sta
tion during their absence.
The Stalker hotel changed hands
this week, having been purchased by
Win. Burdict who came here a couple
of months ago with the range pedd

The Belgrade Herald solemnly an
nounces that a new cement sidewalk
has been laid in that berg across the
street connecting the saloon with the
meat market. Now will the Herald
man tell us what earthly reason there
could be for desiring sidewalk connect
ing a saloon with a meat market in
that town. If we have been correctly
informed the citizens up there make
a break for a saloon early in the
morning and remain as long as their
money and credit holds out. But

A series of unearthly noises startled
our citizens yesterday morning, which
started the rumor that some one had
stolen the keys of Hades and turned
the inmates loose. But it proved to
be a false report. The racket being
made by several auto loads of Fuller
ton people out boosting for the chau
tauqua. They were accompanied by a
preacher and proved to be a gentle
manly bunch, and the Leader resents
the remark made by a Belgrade citi

"weather they came from hell or Ful

From the Sand:
Word was received from Mrs. W.
S. Gray who is at Walled Lake,
Michigan, that her father, Charles
Ranons, died last Tuesday morning.
Mrs. Gray left Thursday of last week
so that she arrived there in time to
see him before he died.
Merrick county has one supervisor
of whom it should be proud. A. J.
Parker came to Lone Tree without any
more clothes than Father Adam wore
when he was born. It was in 1S5G.
Ad. is still there and making good.
A few days ago he sold five acres of
land for $2,500, off from which he
kicked the coyotes in the early days.
When Ad came here he started in
teaching school, putting in six months
of his time at that tiresome job.
Then seeeing that he could not get
rich at that, he bought a pony and
chapps and went to herding cattle.
Like the wise boy he was, he saved
his money and bought a piece of land
near where Central City now is and
has lived a respectable life ever
since. He sold five acres of it the
other day at $500.00 an acre just
to show what Nebraska land is good
for. He has plenty of it left. Also,
he is supervisor of his district and is
making good on that. If you want
to see a good man, go to Central and
see Ad Parker.
Tuesday morning Elliot Lundy met
with an accident that will cause him
some pain and loss of time. He was
lifting a cement block to a fellow
workman above his head and the stone
slipped from the other's hand fell
about eight inches, catching the end
of his thumb between it and the plat
form, smashing it badly.
From the Dmocrat:
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kohl and daugh

two daughters who were guests of the
Nels Pederson family for several
weeks left Monday for their homes at

erson went along to drive Mr. Eden's
car. There were many parties given
in honor of the guests and every eirort
made to make their visit here as
pleasant as possible.
Mr. and Mrs. Art Wolf and son
"Maynard went down to Columbus
Tuesday afternoon where they will re
main for a few weeks in an effort to
improve the condition of Maynard's

day on a visit to the Richard Olmer
and Caldwell families of this place

sister of Mr. Olmer and the two had
not seen each other in twenty-two
years. The coming of Mr. and Mrs.

READ that line again. Think of it think of it seriously before you spend your money.
If you expect to buy a car you owe it to yourself to make a comparison, all we ask is
to have you see our car, ride in it and examine it, or get a catalog and compare it
with other cars. We have in the Reo 30 all the Power, Speed, quiet running and dependa
bility that you get in any 30 h. p. car. We have as handsome a car as you can buy at any
price, and we have a car as good, we offer you a car noted for endurance.
In comparing cars try and find one that uses Timken Roller Bearings and then compare
the price. The Reo is the only car sold as low as $1,000 that use these expensive bearings.
Pierce-Arrow, Kissel, Locomobile, Speedwell, Marmon and other cars of that class use Tim
ken Roller Bearings in exactly the same places that the Reo uses them front wheels, drive
shaft and rear axle. 95 per cent of the large trucks four and five tons capacity use Tim
ken Roller Bearings. We have never had a single case of trouble nor replaced a Timken
Another Important Point to Consider
is the transmission. This is a weak spot in many cars not so in the Reo, because we use a
standard 40 h. p. transmission, giving us ample strength for all emergencies. The Reo fac
tory are at present installing a number of large gear cutting machines and will, in a short
time, cut all their own gears, but at present are using Warner's transmission gears. In con
nection with this will mention that Warner gears are exactly like the ones in the Reo, from
the same factory are used in Kissel 30-50-60 h. p., Chalmers 30-40 h. p., Auburn 40 h. p.,
Overland sliding gear 40 h. p. and a number of other well known cars.
Now, consider a moment, here are cars selling at from $1,500 to $3,000, with exactly
the same transmission as the Reo and the Reo costs you $1,000. Perhaps you wonder at
the Reo having these good features that are found only in cars selling at twice its price.
Here is the reason: Taking the financial reports as given out for 1910, we find that the
E. M. F. factory paid 6 times the dividend that th Reo factory paid. Ford 2l2 times;
Chalmers 8 times; Rambler 5 times. Do you see why you have to pay more for some 30's
than for the Reo? You pay more but in actual car value don't get any more. So we say

SHOW DAY AT HAND.
World's Largest And Best Circus
Comes Next Tuesday,
The Adam Forepaugh and Sells
Brothers' circus will roll into town
next Tuesday, August 15, on its mile
long train. Its coming is awaited
with great interest, as it is not alone
the model circus of the world, but it
is as well the largest. It now comes
after an absence of several years with
an entire new equipment, a brand
new parade, a million-dollar menage
rie and a company of European per
formers the like of which is unprece
dented in Americian circus history.
Everything points to a banner cir
cus day and the railroads are fixing
to handle a banner crowd. Those who
expect to attend one of the two pre
fonnances to be given here will do
well to secure their seats in advance.
The down town ticket office will be
located in Pollock's Drug Store and
will be open to the public early in the;
1 , m. -
morning ot snow aay. ine prices
for reserved seats and admissions will
be the same at this office as at the re
gular ticket wagons on the show
The Ionirost and best parade ever
tirelv new affair, novel in every fea-
ture and absolutely new in construc
tion. There is no question of its
wonderful attractiveness, judging
from the report that comes from other
cities. It will be presented here ex
actly as in New York City and other
eastern points where it was received
with great praise.
In brief the startling features of
the long and varried program under
the main canvas included the mid-air j
double somersaulting automobile act,
the Ty-Bell sisters' wonderful and
thrilling "Human Butterfly" specta
cle, Capt. Webb's two troops of per
forming seals, the three best trained
herds of elephants in America, Prof.
Taylor's monkey circus, the forty fun
niest clowns in the world, the new
menagerie and a great gathering of
he best acrobats, riders, jugglers, gy
mnasts aerialists, equilibrists and hy
ppodromc contestants of Europe,
Asia and America.
This is the most popular circus in
the world, and it is the only circus
that has made complete tour of the
earth. It is as well known and as
well liked in Australia, in China or
in South America as it is in the
United States. Like a ball of rolling
snow it has gathered and gathered as
it traveled along and now brings home
to America the most remarkable as- j
semblage of foreign features ever seen
in this country. Those who attend
either of the two performances to be
given here will see everything worth
seeing in the way of circus specialties
and exhibits, and not one old thing to
connect this big show with the past.
All is newness, bigness and elabora
tion. Dr. VaUIer, Osteopath, Barber Block.
