The general predictions are that this
rainy weather will continue through the
month of May. If these predictions have
anything to do with the continuance of
such weather as we have been having the
past week we would like to have people
let up on predictions for a while, at least.
II. II. Chillberg, agent for the Thomp
sou-Houston electric light, returned last
night to Omaha. The reporter failed to
learn whether he had received any en
couragement about electric lights from
our city fathers or not, but we sincerely
hope he did and that ere the summer rolls
away we may have more light.
T. W. Riddle returned this morning
from Wahoo. He reports things very
dry in that city. Although they have
had plenty of rain they have had
nothing but water to drink for almost
two weeks. Some of the boys are be
coming very thirsty but there is no show
for any saloons to be opened there for
several days yet.
--The democrat's weather bureau pre
dicted a dry spring. It seems to haye
acted as a sort oi counter irritant and the
clerk of the weather tipped over his rain
box in spiteful resentment. The weather
bureau has been sent to the barn loft and
a new gasoline vapor bureau, suitable
for the warm season, ordered in its place.
An Omaha preacher wants the daily
papers to have each a religious editor
upon its editorial staff. There
may bo in Omaha need of something of
the sort, but from the observations this
religious and family paper is enabled to
make it ventures to suggest that a larger
number of religious pastors for the
churches wolnd not come entirely amiss.
Scarcely had the city council ad
journed last night when the fire company
poured into the hall in tuch number?
that ye reporter became excited and skip
ped out. The boys looked as though
they were ready to fight fire in any form,
and we thinking they might take us for
a fire thought it best to make ourselves
scare. The boys all seemed to be iu r
good humor and we have no doubt but
they performed the business before them
in the most business like manner.
-VThc following named gentlemen are

well afford to neglect.
Tho Saunders county republicans

district conventions. The delegates to
the district convention, which meets at
Ashland, tomorrow, are instructed to
vote for Hon. FVA. Scoville, of Valpa
raiso, for delegate to the national conven
tion at Chicago.
The rain is over, spring is hero and
it is of the greatest importance to tho
health of our city that the filth and rub
Vish which has accumulated in the streets
and alleys during the winter should be
cleared away. The recent rains have so
thoroughly soaked this material that de
cay will begin at once and the authori
ties of our town should see that it is cot
permitted to lay where the health of our
city will be endangered.
The druggists of Nebraska met iu
annual session at Lincoln yesterday at 3
o'clock p. m. It was found on assemb
ling that but few of the delegates were
present, but as there was double the
number present required for a quorum,
they immediately proceeded to business.

The farmers are sending in petitions
to the county commissioners for new

to petition to some one for a new kind
of weather these days.
Memorial day is a celebration of such
tendr and patriotic rememberances that
the C. A. R. committees, who intend to

On Friday, the evening train on the

known person just as it was slowing up
to take water at the tank noar the Peu

entered a window glancing and struck
the door; no one was hurt and no cause
is known for the sheotisg. Whether it
was accidental or intentional no one can

From Monday' Daily,
The republican convention at Weep
ing Water, last Saturday enjoyed the
p'casure of democratic symptoms. The
dlegution from Plattsmouth that went
by special train from here to Lou:sville
and to Weeping Water was accompanied
by ou: friend W. D. Jones a well
known democrat of our city. Jones
was perfectly safe in the company he
was with, and it is said "under the hat"
that he carried a proxy way down in his
pocket from the third ward, however,
Coroner Boeck was with the delegation

The solo last evening in the Metho
dist church which was so well rendered
by Mrs. Dean, deserves special mention
through the paper. Tne piece suited her
voice and the manner in which the diffi
cult solo was executed showed a polish
of long practice and cultivation. Her
voice is powerful, but not without the
musical tone which is so often unaccom
panied by power. She is at present
the guest of her brother, Mr. II. C.
Ritchie, and we are living in hopes
that she may not leave our city before
another opportunity is afforded by her to
the people of this city to hear another
selection from her which we are sure
would lie as much appreciated as that
the congregation in the M. E. church had
the pleasure of hearing last evening.

Yesterday afternoon Dan Carrig went
to Atlantic and wanted to give his large
St. Bernard dog the shake at the Rock
Island Fifth street depot. When the train
pulled out Bruno ran alongside the car
until the flyer gained to much velocity,
when he fell back to the train's rear. So
determined was the animal to follow his
master that he failed to notice the Mos
quito creek bridge, but madly ran on to
the structure, fell between the stringers
and plunged into the water twenty-five
feet below. He soa reached the shore,
got into the "middle of the path'' again
and flew through Weston, ten miles from
Council Bluffs, at forty miles an hour.
At Neola he jumped onto the platform
of a caboose headed fpr Ibis city, went
inside, ran under a seat and arrived in
Council Bluffs in an hour and five min
utes from the time of his departure. Af
ter making two or three circuits of the
depot St. Bernard sniffed the air and
started once more for Atlantic, A tele
gram from the night operator at that
station states the fact that the faithful
dog rejeined his master at thirty minutes
after 7 o'clock. Bee.

Ceneral Ignorance. -
I notice some of the newspapers are
making no end of fun of a Harvard grad
uate who could not tell who discovered
America. Oh, well, my son, that is one
of the things 3"ou don't learn in college,
I am like the Harvard graduate; I do
not know who discovered America. If
you know, or think you know a man
who dees know, I wish you would tell
me. I would give some money to learn
just that much. I am always away
down in the spelling-class. I cannot
spell Shaikspear as Shakepere himself
spelled it. I wish you would tell me the
proper way of spelling that great man's
name. I do not know why there arc so
ucany gray horses and no gray colts. I
can't understand why we can't find the
North Pole when we know right where
it is. I don't know why a man wears
buttons on the tail of his coat. I can't
see what earthly use an elephant's tail is
to him. I don't understand why people
in town are always wild to go to the
country, and people in the country are
crazy to come to town. Why don't they
change places at once and be done with
it? I do wish I could somewhere hear a
wise man who would devote a few hours
every century to teaching me a few sim
ple things that everybody ougth to know,
and that eyer3Tbody, except myself, seems
to know already. Robert J. Burdette.
