Van H9uten, Lenox at-* torney, and Jane Jostes, 7, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Ben H. Jostes of Chicago, are dead as a result of an automobile accident that occurred on Highway 148, north of Bedford, about 9 o'clock Wednesday morning. The accident happened when a car driven by B. F. Wurster of Lenox skidded on the slippery oiled road and twisted crossway of the road in time to be hit by the Jostes car. Mr. Van Houten was thrown from the front seat of the Wurster car and landed about thirty feet away along the fence. He lived only a few minutes and it is probable he did not know what happened. Jane Jostes died within a few minutes after the accident. The Injured All others in the accident were injured, some severely. Judy Jostes, daughter of Dr. Jostes, is thought to be near death as it is thought her neck is broken. Mrs. Jostes received a badly fractured leg. Dr. Jostes was badly bruised about the chest and shoulders. B. F. Wurster was bruised and shaken up. Mrs. B. F. Wurster received a bad bruise on one eye. Margaret Wurster, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wurster, was badly bruised. South of Tuck Corner Dr. and Mrs. Jostes and the two girls had been visiting at the home of Mrs. Jostes' parents in Bedford, Mr. and Mrs. Guy Thompson, and were on then- way to Corning. The accident happened just north of the first bridge south of the Tuck corner on No. 148. Mr. Wurster and Mr. Van AN APOLOGY The Time Table feels that an apology is due its readers for presenting the news in this manner.

Houten were going to Bedford to attend court where they were interested in the Rhodenbaugh will case. Reports we have received about the accident are that Mr. Wurster saw the other car approaching and figured that the two cars would meet on the bridge. He slowed up, intending to allow the other car to cross the bridge first. Just as the two cars approached each other the Wurster car skidded and swung across the road and the Jostes car struck it on the right side. The Wurster car remained in the road but the Jostes car left the road and came to rest in the east ditch, headed west. RHODENBAUGH WILL CASE WAS SETTLED Agreement was reached Wednesday noon for settlement of disputed wills that were filed in the estate of E. E. Rhodenbaugh. Although complete details have not been received it is understood that a compromise was reached whereby the beneficiaries under the second will agreed to accept $13,000 out of which they agreed to pay their attorney fees, while the beneficiaries under the first will agreed to accept the balance of the estate. selves and increase in number, and to provide for the removal of only the surplus of certain game and fur-bearing animals that accrues yearly. With certain wild animals, as in the case of chickens, domestic ducks, hogs, cattle, and other farm animals, the numbers are often so increased at the end of the summer that it is advisable to remove the surplus in order that the remainder may have sufficient food and shelter throughout the winter.

"The predatory birds found on most farms are the hawks, owls, and crows. In parts of the state the eagle must be added to this list. All of these birds have come in for considerable abuse, because they sometimes prey on domestic birds and song birds. As is true in so many cases, snap judgment has ctreated a biased outlook regarding many of these birds. Scientific investigations of the habits of this group of birds have shown that most of the species have been falsely accused. "Only a few of the hawks as the Coopers, duck, goshawk and sharp-shinned, are especially destructive. : 'Of this list, the Cooper and .sharp-shinned are of the greatest importance for the maintenance of bird numbers on a farm.

If you have been intending to begin taking Chiropractic adjustments why not begin taking them now? If you are run down in health you cannot expect to begin feeling better until you do something about your health. Chiropractic is the modern, scientific method of treating disease. It recognizes that the cause of disease lies within the body and that by doing away with the cause the disease can be eliminated. A list of the diseases that respond readily to Chiropractic adjustments is almost endless., Where the trouble is of long standing more time is often necessary to complete a cure than where the patient recognizes his condition and does something about it right away.
