Word was received yesterday by

rcgion;f Stange's grocery' store on

The automobile came . chu-chuing
along making considerable racket,
and the horses took to the woods,
figuratively speaking. A speedy dasl.
was made eastward on Fourth avenue
until a point just west of Fourteenth
street was reached. There Mr.
Heinniingson made up his mind to
jump as the wagon was in immediate
danger of overturning. Climbing to
the rear of the wagon he stood up.
Just then the wheels struck the
tracks of the street car and Mr. Hem
mingson vas thrown forcibly to the
pavement sustaining a fracture of the
right leg just above the ankle.
THE ENVIED MAN.
A Remarkable Record.
Chamberlain's Cough Kemedy has a
remarkable record. It has been in
use over thirty years, during which
time many million bottles have been
sold and used. It has long been the
standard and main reliance in the
treatment: of croup in thousands
of. homes, jet during this time no
case has ever been reported to the
manufacturers in which it failed to
effect a cure. When given as soon as
the child becomes hoarse or even as
soon as" the croup cough appears, it
will prevent the attack. It is pleas
ant to take, many children like it. It
contains no opium or other harmful
substance and may be given as -confidently
to a baby as to an adult. For
Feet Swollen to Immense Size.
"I had kidney trouble so bad," says
J. J. Cox, of Valley View, Ky., "that
I could not work; my feet were swol
len to immense size and I was confin
ed to my bed and physicians were un
able to give me any relief. My doctor
finally prescribed Foley's Kidney
Cure which made a well man of me."

His brow is not a "high" one.
He has not won renown.
But he is greatly envied
By many in this, town;
His manner is not polished,
He has a homely face,
Yet many a man is yearning
To occupy his place.
His grammar is defective,
No fair maid's love is his,
But many would be happy
With luck such as his Is.
He does not claim that royal
Ouirses through him, yet
He has one blessing uiaiiv
Would be o'crjoyed to get. -
He has not seen the wonders
They have in distant' lands.
Yet many a man would gladly "
Today stand where he stands.
He has no love for music,
No song is in his soul.
But envy fills his neighbors;
His cellar's full of coal.
