about 8 o'clock. The party got off the
train at 7 o'clock and in company
with Col. Connor looked over main
street and paid a visit to the Hotel Riley
which Mr. Perkins pronounced the
finest and best arranged west of the Mis
souri River. Mr. Harris was surprised
and greatly pleased at the solid city like
appearance which greeted him, in strong
contrast to the old rickety frame built
town he had known years ago when he
was cashier of the land department for
the B. & M. at Lincoln. The party was
starting out for a tour of the entire lines
and remained here over night to look
thoroughly over their varied interests.

building that nothing would be done for
a while in that direction.

The IIkkald reporter, having heard
fabulous stories about the: number ol new
residences being built and contracted for
in the south part of the city, took a hasty
ive this morning, to see tor himselt
what was going on. We etarted south
on (ith street in company with Mr.
Knotts, and after going a block west at
the end of ;ih, arrived at tho edge of
IJillingstown, where we found two nice
new cottages nearly completed. A little
farther on, with south fronts, we noticed
the three handsome cottages of C. E.
Wescott's recently completed; farther on
was a substantial brick, built and owned
by J. V. Week bach. Engineer Hilton
has a sightly place farther to the east
whe- e he is erecting a well planned $2,-
On Patterson avenu'J in South Park, a
very sightly street by the way, we noticed
the well built cottage of M. M. Beals; at
No. 1014, on the same streit, Mr. Hall,
the tinner, has put up a large two story
house that adds to the appearance of that
part of towu. '
John Tutt had caught tho prevailing
spirit of improvement that surrounded
him and put a new roof on his handsome
brick resideuci.i. South of the school
house we noti ed an excayatiou just be
gun and further east, surrounded by a
tasty picket fence, R. B Windham is
completing a m at cottage with brick
basement. Starling southwest on the
avenue leading to the fair grounds, we
noticed at No. 1415 a well built cottage.
The finest residence, however, in Sou'h
Park suburbs, will be th ic of Mr. Ed
Oliver. Mr. Oli vtr has extensive grounds
of beautiful Woodland, situated on a
comniMnding location on which he is
erecting a $.",000 brick residence that
would be a credit to Omaha or Lincoln.
Mr. Oliver is to be congratulated on his
good Uste and public spirit. Platts
mouth contains a few wealthy men that
a dugout wou'd be too expensive for,
but Ed is not one of that kind, he spends
his money wlnre he makes it. South

some of them being ycry good ones.

Bach's grocery store, on the avenue near

four new houses, while we were informed
that in Porter place near the fair grounds

wife of Paymaster u-oouioe, or me ma

conscious at his side with a moaning cry:
"Oh, father." The porter, who was car
rying the heavier baggage, raised the
head of the stricken senator, and imme
diately sturdy porters carried the pros
trate and apparently inanimate form to
the room cf the depot master. A gen

he fell, says that Mr. Beck had hardly
reached the platform when his face
turned blue and black, and he seemed tc
Several physic ians were soon in at

some restorative; but it was too late.
The fatal attack of heart disease so long
expected had come. Even as the physi

quickly by telephone to the Capitol.
Senator Berry of Arkansas, who lives at
an adjacent hotel, was one of the first to
reach tiie depot, but his friend was dead.
Others came soon afterward, among
them members of the Kentucky con

Mr. Beck had not performed active
service in the senate for more than a
year. About that time he fell ill with
premonitory symptoms of the. disease
which caused his death.
The Funeral Arrangement.
Washington, May 5. Arrangements
for Senator Back's funeral are nearly
completed. The formal announcement
of his death will be made in the seualt
by Senator Blackburn to-day, and the
senate will at once adjourn and on Tues
day the funeral servi ces will be held in
the senate chamber. This being sus
pension day in the house, Mr. Carlisle
will not formally Minmince the death of
Senator Beck, until after consultation
with Sieaker Reed, and so it is probable
the house will not adjourn until late in
the afternoon. After the funeral ser
vices on Tuesday the Senator's remains
will be taken over the Chesapeake and
Ohio road to Lexington, Ky., where the
funeral will take place on Thursday.
All the Kentucky delegation in congress
will accompany the remains to Lexing
ton and attend the funeral there. The
following named gentlemen, intimate
friends of the dead senator, have been
selected by the family as pall bearers,
and will also go to Lexington: Ex-Congressman
Trimble, ex-Congressman Phil
D. Thompson and O. O. Stealy and R.
C. YVintersniith of Kentucky, L. Q.
Washington and Wri. R. Smith.
Senator Beck's remains will be taken
to the Capitol this afternoon and, sur
rounded by a guard of honor of senate
officials, will lie in state in the senate
corridor until Tuesday noon. The body
will then be taken into the senate cham
ber, where, at 1 o'clock the obsequies
will be held. Senator Blackburn will
deliver an oration.

Advice of a Prominent Land Broke r
Rheumatic Syrup Co., J aclisrm, iJirh:
Gknts: In February, 18'., I com
ir.enced using Hibbard's Kheumatic Syrup
and Strengthening Plasters for inflam
matory rheumatism, having lx;en troubled
three years with this tenible disease. My
joints were swolen so that I could hardly
walk and I attended to my business with
difficulty. I used three bottles and ap
plied the plasters to my limbs and back,
and I can say that I am now cured. I
have not been troubled with rheumatisji
since discontinuing its use. My father-in-law,
Mr. J. D. Skinner, of Manson, has al
so been hunctitted by this medicine. Wo
earnestly r.-commend it to our friends.
Tske my advice, give it a trial.
