in velocity, forest fires broke
out afresh tonight on a 25

Late tonight an army of fire
fighters took to the woods ahead
of the fire. They" were instructed

7ent the spread of the flames.
Pocket in which embers have
been smouldering during the past

Captain A. Overton
Loses Life Friend in
Captain Brown s Death
Among those who grieve over
the death of Capt. O. M. Brown of
i-Council Bluffs is Capt A. Overton,
his friend for more than half a
century. Captain Overton, like
Captain Brown, secured his title by
commanding Missouri river steam
boats. Although Captain Brown was 86
years old Captain Overton is his se
nior and had several years' more
experience in the rugged life of riv
er navigi.on than his friend. He
also encountered more hardships
and danger and lost five boats by
wrecking, while Captain Brown
never lost any, due somewhat to
the fact that Captain Overton was
always engaged in heavy freighting
while Captain Brown commanded
boats designed for the first class
passenger traffic.
Captain Overton recalled yester
day one of the many incidents that
attached him warmly to Captain
Brown. He rescued Captain Over
ton and part of his crew after the
Iatter's boat had been wrecked and
the mate drowned.
The catastrophe happened July 4.
1857, and was of an extraordrntry
character. Captain Overton had tak
en a commission to transport a car
go of coin from thelower end of
the Peru bend to Omaha. The riv
er made a huge bend where Peru
now is located. It was 20 miles
around the bend to the point where
the corn was to be loaded and less
than half a mile across the narrow
neckpf land.
The Overton boat, the John Bish
op, had steamed around the bend
and had tied up at the lower side
of the narrow peninsula where the
cargo was being taken on. The
work required some time and the
boat remained over night.
Several thousand bushels of corn
were aboard the next day, July 4,
when the river suddenly burst
through the neck. Trees, earth and
a torrent of water struck the boa',
carried it out into the stream and
capsized it. Without steam pres
sure it was helpless.
The first mate, a St. Joseph man,
was lost, and Captain Overton and
other members of the crew were
clinging to the smokestacks. There
wexe no small boats to rescue them
and they appeared to be doomed.
About the middle of the day, after
hours of peril, Captain Brown, com
manding a powerful sidewheel pack
et, hove in sight, and by skilful
navigation saved all of the men.
The Bishop and her cargo was a
complete loss. The two captains
had been acquaintances for a num
ber of years. After the incident
they were comrades. Among the
many who will pay tribute to Cap
tain Brown today none will lay a
flower on his bier with greater rev
erence and affection than Captafn

Walter E. Wood, one of the first
commission men in business in Oma
ha, died Monday at Riverton, Neb.,
of heart disease while on a visit
there to some of Mrs. Wood's rela
tives. Mr. Wood was in his usual health

weeks ago and his death comes as
a shock to them.

father, James Wood, was one of the
founders of the firm of Wood Broth
ers. He came to Omaha in 1885 to

iness here up to three years ago
when h$ sold out and retired.

time of his death. Besides the widow
he is survived by two brothers,
Charles and George, and one sister,
Mrs. L. Coy, all of Chicago.
Funeral services will be held
Wednesday at Ashland, Neb., at 3
Mr. Wood was probably as well
and widely known as any man in the
Omaha market- He .was an inde
fatigable worker, of an affable dis
position, courteous, liberal warm
hearted and loyal, and the news of
his death will be received with re
gret by many in all walks of life.

Former Garman Liner -Goe!
Down in Hoboken Harbor;
Five Soldiers and Two
Sailors Missing.
Hoboken, N. J., Oct. 15. Shortly
kbefore the American transport
America, formerly the German
trans-Atlantic passenger steamship
Amerika, was abou to sail today
for Europe with soldiers and sup
plies, the vessel foundered at its pier
In the early morning darkness,
while the troops aboard were sleep
ing, the America settled with its
keel in the mud, leaving only three
of its eight decks, together with
parts of its funnels, above water.
Three privates and two sailors are
reported missing.
Troops Guard Pier
Troops were placed on guard out
side the pier and details regarding
the sinking were denied to inquir
ers. The cause of the accident re
mained a mystery even to Navy de
partment officials. A theory ex
pressed in some quarters that water
poured into the holds as a result of
uncompleted repairs apparently did
not conform with the fact that the
ship was ready to weigh anchor to
day for a foreign port.
It was learned that a gang of ma
chinists was at work at the time the
vessel settled and it was suggested
that one of these men inadvertently
opened a sea-cock under the impres
sion that he was closing it.
The submerged America, snext to
the largest of the government's
transports, was within sight of per
sons crossing the lower Hudson on
ferry bats. ,
Was Big Vessel.
The America, of 22,622 tons gross,,
has a capacity of carrying 8 000
troops and a crew of 1.200 men. Of
the troops, it was said that only 200
or 300 were on board at the time.
All the coal had been placed in
the bunkers except a small portion
to have been loaded today.
Inasmuch as all the troops and
crew are reported to have escaped,
it was believed the vessel 1 sank
The sinking of the America makes
the second transport thus put out
of commission in New York har
bor since the war. On April 25 last
the liner St. Paul sank while being
warped into its pier. Water poured
into an open coal port and it turned
over. The St. Paul was not raised
until about two weeks ago.
May Develop Scandal.
Hoboken, N. J... Oct. 15. The
America sank in about 35 feet of
water and the raising of the ship is
not regarded as difficult.
Six weeks ago it was learned to
day an explosion of a steam pipe
on the America cost the lives of
two men, several others being in
jured. No fire or explosion accom
panied today-s mishap.
A board of inquiry composed of
seven members, whose names were
withheld, began an investigation of
the circumstances surrounding the
sinking of the transport.

A New Principle in
Complexion Treatment
Most creams are injurious when used
habitually. They clog the pores and
eventually form a permanent, soggy, stif
ling film which interferes with eliminative
action and makes the skin sickly and pasty.
There is an application mercolised wax
which acts upon an entirely different prin
ciple. While perfectly harmless, it has the
peculiar property of removing by absorp
tion the dead and half-dead particles of
scarf-skin, as well as unhealthy matter
in the pores Thus it takes away from in
stead of adding to the complexion. diffr
ing in this respect from cosmetics. The
result is a perfectly natural and healthy
young complexion. Mercolized wax, pro
curable at any. drug store (one ounce is

Thirty Feet of Danger
The intestinal canal is an important part of every
individual, important every inch of its thirty feet
The upper portion of it is intended for the diges
tion of food and absorption of its useful portions.
But the lower part is concerned with the elimina
tion of waste material
It is, in other words, the great sewer of the body.
The more food eaten, the greater the waste. If
a sewer becomes closed up, its contents stagnate
and become more and more dangerous.
Constipation means more than failure to evacuate
the bowels regularly and thoroughly. It means
stagnation, increased fermentation, putrefaction
and germ action. Increased amounts of irritating
and poisonous substances are formed. Absorption
of these into the blood follows. Self-poisoning
Danger, disorder, disease, or even death follow.
Pills, purgative mineraf waters, castor oil, salts,
etc., do not cure constipation or prevent its con
sequences. They make it worse because they do
not only irritate the bowels, but they "wear out"
in effect and so must be taken in increasing doses,
, making constipation a habit
But the Nujol Treatment for Constipation over
comes constipation by helping Nature re-establish
easy, daily, thorough bowel evacuation as "regular
as clockwork."
Nujol prevents stagnation and self-poisoning.
Nujol forms no habit, except a natural, healthy habit
After Nujol has trained the bowels to act, it can
be dispensed with.
