Last night when the overland came
in from the south reveral hobos got off
and went up the track and when they
got at the south side of the stock yards
they saw a man staggering near a fire
that some tramps had built near the
track. They went to hie assistance and,
as they relate, prevented his fall in
across the fire. Tbey tried to get him to
speak but failed. He was, and is still
unconscious, having been beaten over
the bead with a club, rock or some solid
instrument. There are several cuts in
his scalp which have bled quite freely.
There was nothing found on bis person
that leads to his identity. He bad a
new suit of clothes on; the tags of size
and prices had not yet been removed.
From the best evidence obtainable the
man bad been assaulted for the purpose
! of robbery. It is supposed that, having
a now suit of clothes on, he was spotted
by some highwayman as having money
and was knocked down and robbed of
what he bad.
Roland Agee, deputy sheriff, was
notified of the affair and with the assist
anco of others succeeded in taking the
wounded man to Mrs. Phoebe Kitchell's
near by where he now lies in a critical
condition. Dr. K. L. Miller has ex
amined him and has him under bis care.
Having lain in the mud in the rain for
over an hour he was pretty well chilled
as well as badly hurt. If he revives and
regains consciousness he may be ablo to

Croup is a terror to young mothers

first symptoms aud treatment is the ob
iect of this item. The origin of croup is
a common cold. Children who are sub

is almost sure to follow. The first
symptom is hoarseness; this is soon fo!
lowed by a peculiar rough cough, which
is easilv recognized and will never be
forgotten by one who has heard it. The
time to act is when the child first be
