Mayor Maloney has completed very satis factory arrangements to play Santa Clans I'! a large number of localities where Sonta von Id not le able tn stop. Last yar lust before Christmas Mayor Maloney oiled pretty st'ffly on the lines or his frltndshln with the heads of departments In the South Omaha packing houses and succeeded In drawing In fourteen big hams. They were properly prepared and U!ed with other things to fill many Christmas bas kets which were widely distributed Just In time to make a glad and wholesome surprise for many families where Christ mas dinners would otherwise have been of the most meagre character. The mayor announced yesterday that he had perfected arrangements to repeat last year's program on an enlarged scale. The packing houses have duplicated their generous donations and a very large Increase of supplies has been successfully solicited from other sources. On Monday evening at the regular meet ing of the Council Bluffs Iletall Butchers' and Grocers' association, Mayor Maloney was present and made a proposition to the provision dealers to enlarge the Christmas donations Into a greater and more varied stock. The grocers and butchers Immedi ately approved the Idea and agreed to contribute to the food stock. W. A. Stone, president of the association, and Robert Huntington, Its secretary, have undertaken the task of superintending the collections. Mayor Maloney ha made arrangements with the local charitable organizations for the distribution of Christmas baskets, and these organizations will assume all re sponsibility. Insuring the gifts to go only where they are needed and may be worthily bestowed. Any other citizens who feel that they would like to aid In the work of brightening some cheerless home may no tify Mayor Maloney and he will have a properly authorised person equipped with a wagon call and gather up whatever they may choose to give.

Inst to Illinois Central Train Is In Hospital. . W. H. Wlghtman. an Illinois Central station agent located at Bode, la., was brought' to Mercy hospital yesterday suf fering from serious injuries which he sua talned In a remarkable accident Tuesday afternoon. He attempted to board a pas senger train at his station while it wai In motion. He caught the platform rail- Iny on a coach near the center of the train, but there was ice and snow on the steps and his foot slipped off. He fell in such a way tha he believed he would be drawn under the wheel if he let go his hold upon the hand rail. He clung to It with the desperation of despair and was dragged over the tie for nearly 'a mile before he was discovered and the train stopped. He was found to have sustained two fractures of the right leg, fracture of his collarbone and innumerable cut and bruises, extending to every part of hi body with the exception of the arm with which he clung to the guard rail. Train men say that he would have been killed If he had let go and declare it lo be a most remarkable case of fortitude. He did not loosen his grip until the train stopped. It was thought Wlghtman was fatally Injured, but he was put aboard a train and hurried to Council Bluffs. Report from the hospital last evening stated that he was In a very serious condition, but the belief was that he would recover. Bode is In Humboldt ccunty, in the north cen tral part of the state.
