the machine struck a rough bit of
ground, he was hurled off.
He fell on the sickle and the horses

caught in the teeth of the blade and
frightfully mangled. Dr. Kostner, who
lives at Dutchtown, was hurriedly
summoned, but after a quick inspec

child be removed as quickly as possi

i it is all over, humanity ought to make
uch a demand for a world's court that
thern will be no more reason for coun

men to engage in street fights, or for

more serious than that which pro

gently handled in our affairs with
Mexico, and the chances are that
peace will ultimately be restored in
thai strick-n country and our differ

to be commended for what he has done
in this direction, it is interesting to
know that his predecessor in office,
Mr. Taft, predicts that the waste in
blood and treasure in the Europenn
