The Special Train for Creston Pasted
Through This Morning.
Ah per announcement the special
train enroute for the Creston blue
grass palace passed through this
morning. Contrary to expectations
this city was not represented by the
company, but a number of tickets
were sold and doubtless the hold
ers will take other trains.
The train was composed of three
coaches and one baggage car. The
South Omaha car was beautifully
and appropriately decorated with
Hags, bunting and symbols of the
packing house industry. The car
bore the following inscription:
"South Omaha, the mairic citv of
the west; the most wonderful city
of its age in the world. Popula
tion, 191, ir,0!X); twelve schools and
The other cars were likewise deco
rated wifh flags, bunting, hams and
buckets of lard, and the following
inscription: "The G. H. Hammond
Packing Company, the pioneer of
The decorating was done under
the direction of Hammond & Co,
and doubtless will contribute to the
furthei advertisement of the "Magic
City of the West." If the train had
been further decorated with some
of Cass county's stupendous corn
stalks the decoration would have
been complete; but as Douglas has
no corn to compare with "ours, of

An Adopted American Abroad.
Mr. J. Fred Meyer, editor of the
Denison (la.) Review, a native of
Germany and a politician of repu
tation, is now in Kurope as agent
for this government making inves
tigation in regard to labor matters.
In a recent letter to his paper he
gives an account of a meeting held
by waitresses at 2 o'clock in the
morning this being as soon as
they were at liberty from work for
the purpose of devising plans to
compel the employers to pay them
sufficient wages to enable them to
live. Mr. Myer assured his readers
that the more he saw of the condi
tion of the Kuropean laborer, the
more firmly convinced he was that
America is the laboring man's par
adise. And we may add that such a con
clusion is certainly a reasonable
one, in view of the great number
that forsake home, friends and
native country for a strange land.
America, in justice to her own peo
ple, however, should regulate this
itnirrgratior, in order that our own
people may secure the benefits
from our superior advantages.

The game announced to take
place at the ball park for to-morrow
at 3:30 will probably materialize, the
weather being suitable; yet there
appears to be some objection on the
part of the "Fats" to some of the
players that are to help constitute
the "Leans." It is argued that a
number of them are good ball
players and that it is an injustice
to force such a nine upon them. It
appears to us that this claim is un
warranted, inasmuch as there was
no agreement other than that the
nine be lean. If the "Fats" have no
experienced players it follows that
they are, to that extent, a minus
quantity. The list of players is as

The Clenwood Encampment.
The Twenty-ninth Iowa Infantry
opened its annual encampment at
Glenwood yesterday as per an
nouncement. The old regimental
Hag arrived from Des Moines in
good season and its presence served
to enthuse the old soldier as of
old. Our informant says that only
about 140 members of the regiment
survive to answer to the roll call
this j ear. Thus year after year the
old veterans are being mustered
out, and ere long we, the recipient a of
the fruits of their sacrifices, will bf
left to enjoy them alone. The re
union closes to-morrow.

Letters received by the Latin
American department of the
Exposition indicate that Mexican
women will take a prominent place
at the World's Pair. The country
has long been celebrated for the
variety of needle-work made by
drawing threads from linen, which
is so fashionable in newer portions
of the world; the making of it is an
ancient art in Old Mexico, and
exquisite specimens of the lace
like work are to be found in the
antique altarcioths of the ruined
missions. The women also do
curious and beautiful embroidery
in silver and gold for the sombrero,
without which no Mexican horse
man is perfectly equipped. Toluca
women make by hand a particular
kind of durable and pretty lace.

An Enjoyable Time.
Yesterday's occurrences will un
doubtedly be remembered and cher
ished in the minds of many of the
members and attendants of the
Methodist Sunday School. It had
all been arranged and a host of
people, numbering about eighty or
ninety and ranging in age from two
to seventy-five years, repaired with
well filled baskets to "Fitz's Forty"
to enjoy a days outing, and from all
reports their object was fully
realized. At about 10:30 a very in
teresting program was rendered
consisting of music and recitations.

The Gladiators Win.
The game announced to take
place at the ball park yesterday af
ternoon was called at 4:13. There
were a goodly number of spectators
and quite a lively interest was man
ifested. While the boys, as a whole,
played very well, it was soon evi
dent that the Gladiators would carry
away the belt. The HERALD report

errors but, as we had no contract
we concluded to step aside. The
score stood as follows: Gladiators

An exchan ere says that a lot of
leading Boston women have formed
an alliance and propose to inaugu
rate a dress reform. They have
agreed that on a certain day they
will all appear on the streets in a
costume suitable for wet weather
This will consist of a dress a trifle
shorter than is couinionl) worn, so
that it will not at all trail in the
mud. Such will be vastly more in
accord with good sense than
tramping on their dresses and
wiping their feet on the lace trim
ming. Wonder when this new style
will strike Plattsmouth!
