"A Bight at the Circus "
Jolly Nellie McHenry, the charming-
and vivacious comedienne, who
has been crowding- the theatres
nightly all over the country will be
at Lloyd's Wednesday' night in her
circo-comedy "A Night at the Cir
cus." It is a farce-comedy with a
plot, something rather exceptional
to this style of entertainment;
nevertheless the circus has a well
founded plot that can be followed
with a great deal of interest. It
blazes, burns and sizzles, that is,
it comprizes three distinct acts.
The first shows us the law offices
of Friske & Banger, and the en
deavor of Signor Bonanza, (J. H.
Bradbury,) to have his equestrienne
star, Mile. Electra, (Nellie McHen
ry,) arrested. The next act shows
us the office of a temperance hotel,
with an accommodating safe in the
background, that proves to be an
all-around useful piece of furniture,
inasmuch as it affords the thirsty
an opportunity to moisten their
throats, by being the receptacle for
liquors. Here the plot begins to
form itself into something tangible.
All receive invitations to the circus
from Birdie, and we find doting
wives and loving husbands in
ridiculous attire waiting for Birdie
and Mile. Electra to accompany
them to the circus. And how the
third act does sizzle! In the dress
ing tent of the circus- are clowns
making up. equestriennes waiting
for the call bell, and acrobats dis
playing their muscular agility: and
only one thing to make it more of a
reality would be to have peanuts
and red-headed lemonade. Jolly
Nellie McHenry is the life of the
company and has engaged an en
tirely new cast, with the exception
of Mr. J. U. Bradbury, who will be
remembered for his excellent im
personation of the Circus Manager.
The pretty music and catchy songs
are all new, and the specialties
novel and original. "A Night at
the Circus," is said to be a refined
and charming entertainment, well
worth seeing and will no doubt
crowd the opera house.
THEY ENTER A PROTEST.
The following petition, signed by
hundreds of farmers and others,
has been sent to Lincoln from every
count in this senatorial district:
To the governor and the legisla
ture of the State of Nebraska:
We, the undersigned citizens of
Count v. Nebraska, herebv
enter our protest against the en
actment of House Roll No. 443,
unless bill is amended to repeal or
modify Section 2034, Cobbey's C. S.
of Nebraska, which reads as follows:
"No tract of land shall be crossed
by more than one ditch, canal or
lateral, without the written consent
and agreement of the owner thereof,
if the first ditch, canal or lateral
can be made to answer the purpose
for which the second ditch, canal or
lateral is desired or intended."
This section ought to be repealed
or modified, so that farmers whose
lauds are back from the stream can
get to the source of supply. The
law should encourage and not re
tard the development of our irriga-
In western Nebraska, and more
especially on the North Platte
river, the most valuable in the state
for irrigation, the land along the
streams is owned mostly in great
tracts of ten to twenty miles by
great corporations, and these cor
porations have, in nearly every
instance, began the building of
canals for irrigation, that in the
language of Section 2034, could be
made to answer the purpose in
tended by any later proposed canal,
with a view of monopolizing the
water, and compelling the un
fortunate farmer who is back from
the stream to pay extortionate and
perpetual tribute to organized
It is rather awkward that just
when the agricultural department
is vehemently protesting to foreign
governments that there is no pleuro
pneumonia among American cattle,
the governor of South Dakota
should prohibit the importation of
Texas cattle into his state because
of the existence of that disease
among' them. The only plausible
explanation is that the authorities
of South Dakota, like the European
authorities, are using the disease
as a mere pretext for commercial
protection. Philadelphia Ledger.
Money is going into real estate
in New York with a rush. The
builders are now working or figur
ing on new structures to the value
of nearly seventeen millions of
dollars. This is about three times
the value of the buildings in pros

evidently made up their minds that
a low rate of interest on realty is
better than high rates on specula
