Frank Gillespie residing on John
Becker's farm, better known as the Crab
tree place, lost his stable containing two
sets of harness, and a corn crib which
rrtntftined all the corn he had, by fire
yesterday afternoon. The fire is sup
posed to have been set oat by his little
fiva rear old bov. with matches. It is a
very unfortunate affair for Mr. Gillespie,
aa well as Mr. Becker who owned the
jp. Youg can secure the Hess grand
opera company, consisting of sixty peo
ple, for Monday. September 29, if our
amusement-loving people will manifest
enough interest and give the opera house
management the proper encouragement
to secure this great attraction by sub
scribing for a sufficient number of
ticket. This company plays at the
Coates opera house thi week and at
Boyd's in Omaha October 2, 3 and 4.
They will appear in the very latest opera
if they come here.
A Hebaxd reporter is informed by J.
P. Young that the Standerd opera com
pany which was to appear here-September
24, their had engagement canceled by
J.P . Young, upon a letter received from
G. W. Minor, manager of the Grand
opara house, saying that the company
was very poor and gaye a very unsatis
factory performance and that he had
.closed the house and canacled the entire
week, so Mr. Young went to Omaha yes
terday and canceled the date. Our citi
zens can always rely upon good com
panies coming to the Waterman, unless
the management is deceived by misrep
resentations, as Mr. Minor was in this
