been sullluient to bring a very large
apple crop, 80 me of our orchards
would cause some of the old fruit
growers of the Ease to open their eyes
in astonishment should they he visited
by them. Fine large red apples, juicy,
crisp and succulent almost overburden
the trees. Many of the farmers who
have been successful in harvesting
their crops have determined to adopt
new methods In handling them, rut
ting them in cold storage until tbe
most favorable time for marketing Is
the favorite method. One farmer
with a large crop has decided to work
up most of his crop In cider and apple
butter which he will put on the mar
ket. All druggists guarantee every bottle
ot Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and
will refund the money to anyone who is
not Bath-fled after using two-thirds of Its
contents. This is the best remedy in the
world for la grippe, ooughs, colds, croup
. and whooping oough and is plensunt and
safe to take. It prevents any tendency
of a cold to result in pneumonia.
Another Distressing Accident.
On last Wednesday evening alter the
Gazette had gone to press a very dis
tressing accident occurred on tbe Hock
Island track Just south of the round
house. W. G. Taylor, and old man up
ward of seventy years of age was run
over by the cars and his' body mang
led. No one saw him when the acci
dent occured and the matter as to just
how it happened Is largely conjecture.
It seems that there were several freight
cars standing on a side track discon
nected from any other, and under one
of these or between two ot them the
old man had seated himself on the rail.
While he was sitting there some other
cars were kicked down against them
with the result that I was run over.
His body was found shortly after
ward. Near where he was found a
spoon and a bottle of medicine were
found also. It ts claimed that some I
men working on some cars near by bad
called to blm a few minutes before he
is supposed to have been caught under
tbe wheels and told hlrn there were
loine cars being backed down toward
him. He lifted bis head a moment aud
then dropped It again and they thought
no more about tbe matter till his body
was found. From his son, George V.
Tavlor, who lives on Avenue F. East
and works In tbe salt works it was
learned that tbe old gentlemen bad
started down town after some grooer
les. It Is supposed that he bad been
taken sick and bad sat down on tbe
rail as above described because lie was
unable to go further. The spoon and
medicine found near by seem to Indi
cate tbe truth of this theory. The son
said be bad been quite sick only a day
or two before. However It was a very
The coroner's Jury after summoning
several witnesses decided tbat there
was no criminal negligence on the
part of the rail road employes.
Of course that the road is not liable for
civil damages, though that might be a
hard thing to establish In this case.
,', J. 8. Taylor Killed,
J. S. Taylor a prominent farmer
who lived a few miles northwest of

the barn. He then returned in a
short time and got his gun, saying he
was going out to kill a skunk. He
went to the barn and In a few minutes
a gun shot report was beard. One of
bis daughters went out and found blm
as above described.
On tbe floor of tbe barn was a mark
which seemed an imprint made by tbe
butt of tbe gun when it was discharged,
n is clothes were powder burnt as well
as the flesh showing tbat the muz.le of
1 be gun was very close to him and the
charge seemed to have g( ne horri.ont

Mr. Taylor has been a resident of
this county for many years being one
of the early settlers. He is the father

The meetings of the county horticul
tural society bave been allowed to
lapee ever since about May or June
when tbe last meetings wore inter
rupted by rain and bad weather which
prevented an attendance in tbe grove

difficult If not Impossible to keep up
attendance and Interest. A meeting
of the excutlve committee was held
the latter part of last week however
and tbe meetings will be again re
sumed. The next meeting will be held
at Twenty-One ball In this city on Wed
nesday, November Uth.
Tbe meetings which were held last
spi ing were if much value to the farm

a continuance of them will no doubt
result In much good to tbe fruit grow

Football at Nlckerson.
List Saturday witnessed a gaunt) of
font bi.ll between tho Nlckerson Nor
mal Hiid the Kmpona State Normal
teams that must have been good. The
reason it must have been good is that
one players got his shoulder dislocated
and there are charges that there was
an attempt to drug the Nlckerson team
by the placing of belladonna or some
other poison in tbe drinking water.
Nevertheless the Nlckerson boys won
a glorious victory, the score standing
1" to 0. Tbe Emporia team is reck
oned as a good team and tied the Uni
versity team a few days ago. Under
these circumstances the Nlckerson fel
lows feel that they have earned rating
and a place in the annals ot fame.
