five minutes before it was struck; that
" he was inside the caboose and was
taken out with the injured..When they
1 arrived at Curtis, about all of said
thirty-two went into the Burlington
depot and -demanded a coach, as the
caboose would not permit all of them
to sit down; that when they asked
- ' for the coach .they were- told- that
. they couldn't get them one, and for
them to get out, aa they, were taking
' up too much room. All went back
to the caboose.

one of the passengers on the second
section; that he went to the-back door
of the way-car to get. fresh air and
of his seeing the third section when
it was about twenty rods away, and of
jumping off. He said that the train
had been stonoed about five minutes
before it was struck, and that he knew
the man who tried to unfasten the
' , lantern on the back end of said ca
boose to flag the approaching train
Charles Dillon, another passenger
on the second section, testified that
when he got to the rear door of the
way-catAhat he saw the third sec
tion about a block away; thai he
turned and called to the boys inside
for them to jump, and then got off
himself. In his opinion it was nearly
ten minutes from the time they
stopped until tne third section ran
into them.

Two days after Joe Carlson and a

weighing sixty-two pounds in the

Two other fish, weighing thirty and
torty pounas, respectively, were raxen
from the shallow water on the same

Feb. 28. "1 had chronic ease of eczema
on my hands for about three years. It got
red In places, especially between my" fingers,
and when I'd rub them a little, pimples or
blisters would form, which filled with water.
The longer I had this trouble, the larger
these pimples got. I can't express In words
what a terrible thing it was. I couldn't find
anything to help me everything seemed
to make 1$ worse. I had about given up all
hope of ever being cured. They were terribly
sore, and I eould not sleep for the terrible
itching and burning. I learned of Resinol
Ointment and Resinol Soap and decided to
try them. Well, Resinol really proved to be
a wonderful thing In my case. It relieved at
the first application. X used about a cake of
Resinol Soap and half a jar of Retinal Oint
ment and the eczema was all gone. It
hasn't returned since. I am ao glad I tried
Resinol Ointment 'and Resinol Soap, as I
do not know how I could have stood that
eczema much longer. It Is a cheap and sure
cure." (Signed) Mrs. H. H. Denbow. Sioux

Four Hundred Voters From All
Parties Listen to Speeches
for Over Two Hours.
Genoa, Neb., Oct. 24. (Special.)
After a day of plowing through 100
miles of muddy roads and delivering
sneeches along the line at Newman
Grove and St. Edward, John L. Ken
nedy, republican candidate for United
States senator, and William R War
ner, republican candidate for congress
from the Third district, arrived in Ge
noa last night at 8 o'clock and were
received at the town hall by an audi
ence of about 400 voters of all par
ties and for two hours and a half
they divided time in speaking-and
were hardly permitted to stop. When
they sought to close their speeches
thejf were greeted with cries of "Go
on, go on" and similar expressions
from their enthusiastic hearers.
Great Enthusiasm Manifested.
. Although the meeting was a regu
lar old-time republican rally and al-'j
though there was much republican
enthusiasm manifested, the speakers
out of regard for the large number of
loyal boosters among the democrats
and independent voters of the audi
ence spent most of their time in dis-

concern all mankind and are patriotic
rather than partisan. Both speakers
were assured by many democrats and
independent voters that they would
receive their active support. Some
announced that an effort had been
made by the democratic incumbents
to prevent them from leaving their
party column, but that they reserved
the right to do this considering the
large moral jssues that were involved
in this campaign, which are not parti
san and on which the democratic can
didates have not expressed them
selves. Speaking of the days when Mr.
Kennedy, was in congress Mr. War
ner related an incident which threw

light on tne habit of Mr. Kennedy
as a doer rather than a promiser. He
stated that he once wrote to Mr. Ken
nedy and to the two senators from
Nebraska stating his wish and that
the senators promptly wrote back
courteous letters assuring him that
they would look into the matter and
that on the same mail he received a
letter from John L. Kennedy, who
was then congressman, saying in ef
fect, "I have done it." The crowd
cheered and applauded vigorously at
this. Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Warner
have many friends here.
Charles G. Nelson was in charge of
arrangements and B. J. Ainlay of Bel
grade introduced the speakers. Clyde
B. Oean sat upon the platform with
G. F. Rose, county attorney. At New

dall introduced the speakers and at
St. Edwards A. A. Smith presided.
Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Warner were
gratified with the reception tendered
them all along the line and they re
gretted that it was impossible for
them to reach Albion and Boone as
was scheduled, but the heavy roads
made it impossible.
