The cemetery was full of cattle and the gates were wide open today Nothing could be more ruinous than a herd of cattle on a lawn of any kind at this time. The sexton should see to it that all the gates are closed and locked.

A Pennsylvania man advertised that he was poor, knee-sprung, homely, cross-eyed and ill-natured, but wanted a wife, and in response received fifty-four letters from wo men who said they'd take him.

That old how. itaer at Nehawka was condemned by the government as being danger ous to use twenty years ago. It is liable to blow up, you had better leave it where it is, under a manure pile at Sheldon's stable; it is safer there. County Clerk Bird Critchfield has had a portable booth made for elec tion. It consists of four stalls or booths; each stall is separated by heavy canvass, and it can be taken apart, folded up and put away so that it will do for a number of years to come. After Cal Parmele and a i.umber of others had got through inspecting it Mr. Parmele offered to bet a big red apple that this city would go for the alliance the next election, but none of the boys were willing to take him up.

The School Board, The outlook for the election of the republican school board ticket is c rtainly very good. A.J.Graves is the first nominee from the Fiftli ward, which needs and deserves representation. Mr. Graves is an old school teacher and owns one among the neatest residences in the Fifth ward. Mr. Graves has chil dren of his own to send to school and takes an active interest in school affairs. L. D. Bennett, the nominee from the Second ward is an exemplary business man and has always taken a live interest in our public schools. He has proven his value as a working member be fore and it goes without saying that he will be elected again. The best interest of the schools demand the election of these gentlemen; see that you vote for them one week from to morrow. The Grand Army Hall. The proposition of J. W.

The HERALD hopes the old gentleman mav fullv recover his lost faculties and live to enjoy life for many years yet to come. A Real Surprise. Saturday evening about fifty of our most prominent citizens con ceived the idea of giving Mr. and Mrs. B. Spurlock a sort of farewell call as a testimonial of the high es teem in which they were held in this citv. It will be remembered that Mr. and Mrs. Spurlock are going to move to York in a few days, where Mr. S. takes charge of the Mothers's Jewels Home. The party was all made upSaturdayeveningandfinal ly they all swooped down on their unsuspecting guests, only to find that the Spurlocks were not in the city. After waiting an hour and no tidings of the host and hostess who were to be surprised, the really sur prised people the guests repaired to their homes. Tonight, however, they will call again, but with no in tention of surprising anyone; and as Mr. S- and wife came home yes terday the greeting will not be a failure. Last Thursday Mr. Jo3. E. Upton and Miss Lora Bridenstine were united in marriage by Rev. Green at Nebraska City. Both parties are well known in this county, as it has been their homes from childhood. After the ceremony they returned to this city, where they were met by a number of relatives and friends who were waiting to congratulate them. Union Ledger. The State vs Wm. Kniss was billed for Saturday in the county court. The plaintiffs were paid what was their due and the case was dis missed.

MiM Hadjrn, of Botton, the Architect. From Tucidayn Daily Chicago, March as. The women's building at the World's Fair will be built , from de signs prepared by Miss Sophia G. Hayden of Boston. A prize compe tition for designs whs invited, and Miss Hayden carried off the first prize of $1,000, over twelve others who entered the contest. Miss Ix)is L. Howe of Boston was awarded the Becond prize of $500, and Miss Laura Haves of Chicago the third of $J50. Mrs. Potter 1 "aimer, president of the Board of Lady Managers, made the awards, after the dilferent designs had been carefully examined and discussed by Chief of Construction Bnrnham, and other members of the Board of Architects. Miss Hay den's designs provide for a building 2X) by 400 feet in di mensions, of Italian rennaisance style, with colouades broken by cen ter and end pavillions. It will be constructed of iron and glass, and shows but little ornamentation ex cept at the main entrance. It will stand on one of the most conspicu ous sites in Jackson Park, being op posite the eastern end of Midway Plaisance, and close to the main lagoon. The building will cost $200,000. By reason of the use to which it will be put, the women's building will be one of the moat notable structures at the exposition. As soon as Miss Hayden's design was selected, Chief of Construction Burnham telegraphed to her to come to Chicago at once, and elab orate it so that specifications can be prepared for the erection of the building. She will receive her ex penses and be paid for her work while in Chicago. Miss Hayden graduated with honors from a four years' course at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and has since done some excellent work in the employ of Boston architects. Better Take SiWer. A Washington telegram says: Secret service officers declare that the $2 silver certificate counterfeit is a most dangerous one. The vig nette of Hancock is as fane as tne original and the lettering and lathe work is an exact copy of the treasu ry note. In fact the only difference is too minute to be visible to the naked eye. In the upper leu nana and lower right hand corners of the genuine note is the figure "2," and on its face is engraved in characters so minute that they are not intelli gible except under a magnifying glass the word "two," repeated twice. In the counterfeit the word "two" is similarly engraved the same num ber of times, but in the two cases the counterfeiter has made the let ters read "out." The discovery of the counterfeit is not a new thing. Attention was called to it some time ago, but the unknown counterfeiters watch the secret service bulletins closely. When the discrepancy was discov ered in the note bearing the check letter "A" and the signature of "C N. Tordan." the counterfeiters changed the check-letter to "B" and the name to that of Treasurer Hy att. The entire circulation of the gen uine note may have to be called in.

Th. unnwKtnrm which broke over the western part of the state yester dav caused some embarrassment to i-uilrnad traffic. About a foot of snow fell in the west and northwest and tied up the Klkhorn and B. &M. lines in the Black Hills. On the Union Pacific between Grand Island and Cheyenne there was some de lav on account of the storm, but all the roads were open this morning and no further trouble anticipated; especially under the effect of the warm June sun which shines so fer vently to-day Ro.b Brown's Sunday hat blew off this morning and rolled and tum bled through the soft mud on Main street until it looked like a last sum mcr's overshoe.

Thomas E. Williams has rented his farm at Glendale, and will farm the Grassman place near this city for the coming season. Tom used to be a first class farmer but he don't look as though he could stand up to as much hard work as for merly. Fred Patterson brought in the mail from Rock Bluffs yesterday afnnt Tt in the first exchange of mails the Rock Bluffs office has had since last Thursday. If the contractor or mail carrier had not been born tired he could have taken the mail every day by going on horseback. A Chicago telegram says there were 150 funerals to sadden the joy of beautiful Easter day in that city Sunday. So numerous were the fu nerals that a person standing on a street corner in down-town localities could count three or four passing in various directions at the same time. E. A. Kirkpatrick, of Avoca, while out hunting last Friday acciaen tally dischargad his shot gun, the load taking effect in the wrist of his left hand, which it was thought wmilrl make amoutation of the forearm necessary.

At Weeping Water they have four complete tickets in the field from mayor down. Elm wood has a prohibition fight on while Louisville claims that the kickers up there failed to nominate a ticket in time under the new law, so that kicking and lots of it is the rule up there. Sam Ballance received the con tract yesterday for doing the plas tering on the new court house. A bond was given and the contract signed up in due form.
