"When men are elected to fill places

The efforts of Sir. J. P. Young to se
cure the play, "Hidden Hand." for to
nirht will be rewarded with a crowded
house. The play is of a very rare cast
Hereafter the shop whistle will blow
at 5;:;0 a. in. to awaken the hands in good
time. Our readers will take notice and
not mistake the whistle for a fire alarm-
It will be remembered thai some time
ago we made mention of a prize light to
occur in the yards. One of the comb.it-
ents was John O'Brien, who is built on
the pugilistic plan. Yesterday to satisfy
his muscular powers he came in contact
with a section man. There were several
blows exchanged, the section man coming
out victorious, and now pugilist O'Brien
lias withdrawn from the field as a hard
hitter, and expects to leave for another
land to end his days in happy bliss.
The largest farm in the world is not
in the northwest, but in Louisana. It con
tains l,5UU,UUi acres ot land, and is
owned and operated by a syndicate of
northern men. A Kansas man went down
to look at it the other day and would
have bought it, only the man who owned
the eight acre piece on the west wouldn't
sell, and the Kansas 'man said when he
bought a farm he wanted a farm, not a
New England truck patch. A western
farmer is never creed v for more land. He
only "wants what joins his own." Bur-
W. B. Short had a narrow escape from
being burned out last night. A fire was
started in an up-stairs room; shortly af
ter a noise was heard, and on going np
stairs thev discovered that a clotli bans
ing on a chair near a stove had caught
lire and burned. The carpet was also
on fire. By throwing on a few buckets
of water it was soon extinguished.
Luckily the loss was light, not exceeding
twenty dollars. Mr. Short carries insur
ance, and the loss will doubtless be paid.
The announcment that George C.
Miln the well known actor and orator
will lecture is enough in itself to insure a
packed house at Rockwood Hall next
Thursday evening. The subject chosen
for his lecture is, "Candles and Footlights
or, "The Church and The Stage as friendly
forces." As Mr. Miln has had both eccel
estial and dramatic experience his lecture
will undoubtably be interesting. The
lecture will be given for the benefit of
the Y. W. C. T. U. and tickets may be se
cured from the members. Admission has
been placed at 35 cents and all should
avail themselves of this opportunity to
help a good cause and hear one of the
brightest speakers that ever graced the
pulpit or tho stage.
Miss Evelyn v lse entertained an
"Old-fashioned euchre" partv at her
home on Eighth street, last evening.
Tbe invited guests were Misses Anderson,
Livingston, Petterson, Latham, Wayman.
Fullmer and Sherman, and Messrs. Pat
terson, Cutright, Eads, Moore, Hoot, Der
rick, G. and E. E. Zimmerman, and B. J.
Swindell, of Omaha. The most amusing
part of the evening" entertainment was
the serving of a cake in which there was
a darning needle and a tmall v:'iue cat.
Tho lady that drew the cat was destined
to a life of single blessedness; the unlucky I
drawer of the darning needle was con-1
le mned tokeep the needle irom rusting

AN UNOBSERVED LAW.
One that Is Violated by Nine-tenths
of Cass County Firms A
In the ttatutes of Nebraska, chapter Go
and sac. 27, is a found law which went in
to effect in 1875 and is still in good force
but which is not observed by more than
one-tenth of the business firms of the
county. Not because the law is object-
ional, either, but because the business
men are not aware of its existance. The
merchants of Douglas county have but
recently had their attention called to the
fact that they were not complying with
that provisioa in the the statute and
have generally complied with it, and it is
generally violated over tue state.
Section 27, chapter Go, of the statute,
That any association of persons doing
business in any county of this statu un
der a firm, partnership or corporate name
and not incorporated under the laws of
this state, shall have recorded in the
office of the county clerk of tlie county
where the place of business of said asso
ciation is located, a certificate signed by
each member of such association, show
ing, First: The firm, partnership or cor
porate name of such association. Second:
The general nature of the business there
of and the principal place of doing busi-
- ma -1 mi II 1
ness; ami, lnira: ine iuu name ana
residence of each individual member of
Sec. 2!. Any person who diall for
the space of twenty days fail, neglect, or
refuse to comply with any ot the provi
sions of this act, shall, on conviction
thereof, be fined in any amount not ex
ceeding i? 1,000, and any fine so adjudged
azainst any member of any association
may be collected by execution from the
property of such association..

The following special telegram passed
through on tho wires last night from

Neukaska City, Neb., Jan. 53. Ne
braska City is again overrun by sneak
theives. Nearly every merchant in the
city has reported to the police today a
ereater or less loss. The officers run in
eighteen tramps last night and eight to
day. Composition About a Cat.
The following is the composition writ-
ten by a small boy on the cat
The cat is a curious animal; it has four
feet and also four legs. Its head is at
one end of its body and its tail is at the
other. When it walks its head goes be
fore and its tail follows along behind.
Its front feet walks before and its hind
feet lks along lehnd. It is not good
for a cat to tie a bunch of firecrackers to
its tail. Cats can climb trees; dogs can t.
That is lucky for cats. When a dog gets
after them they can climb a tree, where
they can sass back without getting hurt.
You can't hit a cat. Once I threw a boot
and I hit an old rooster. The old rooster
he died, but the cat dldu't.

The Freight-Rate Situation.
As yet the threatened war on freight
rates 1ms not opened, but the outlook for
peace is no more promising than it was
at the adjournment of the General Man
agers in Chicago last week. A. promi
nent W abash official remarked
that he was still hopeful, but it was hop
ing against hope. The Burlington would
be compelled to cut its live stock rate in
order to divide the business with the
Rock Island, and so soon as that cut was
made the Alton would step in and fight
for its portion of the divide. The Rock
Island would then come do irn, and the
the Burlington would retaliate with a cut
on other classes.
There is no particular change in the
fight between the Alton and the Wabash
It is quiet at this end. The Chicago
Times, in speaking of the war at that end
oi tne line, says: "lne auasn lias in
no instance, so far as learned, met the
rates of the Alton in the Chicago-St.
Louis territory. That is, the contracting
agents are taking freight pretty much on
their own basis of rates, but this is mere
guerrilla warfare, and is a scramble, not
a fight. In the matter of livestock rates,
St. Louis to Chicago, the Alton makes its
$ 10-a-car-load rate, the Wabash sticks to
$10.50, and give3 its rival the traffic. In
Toledo business it is the same. The Al
ton reduced the Wabash eastern rates;the
latter refused to follow, and the Alton
carries the freight. The Wabash has ta
ken an qwkward and most unexpected
course for its antagonists. It simply
ceased fighting, and if its competitors de
sire to force down figures their only al
ternative is to cut their own rates.

John F. Vallery went down to Platts
mouth, Saturday night, to attend a spec
ial meeting of the Independent Order of
Cob-Webs, for the purpose of initiating
C. F. McBeth, in the mysteries of the
order, The ceremonies were extended
until the "wee hours of the morn." Cob
Web hall was elegantly decorated for the
occasion, and the boys had a grand pic
nic, so says candidate McBeth. The
Plattsraouth Glee club rendered a number
of choice selections which added addi
tional mirth to ths occasion. Gran
Spider Smith, Chief Murphy, Grand Mas
ter of Ceremonies Pollock, assisted by
his able assistants, Phillips, Parmele,
Vallery and Grand Arsenal Derrick con
f erred the degree as highly as the Fea'h
er would allow, considering the feeble
condition of the candidate. Grand Med
ical Examiner Cook was in attendence to
affiliate in case of any accident. After
the ceremonies were concluded the mem
bers repaired to the banquet hall of the
order and did justice to an eleeant spread
Mr. McBeth expresses much gratitude
for the kind, lenient and cordial treat
ment he received, and Cob-Web hall can
surely count oh him at all their meetings
that it is possible for him to attend.
At an adjourned meeting of tbe stock
holder of the Citizen's Bank, held Sat
urday night, the following officers and
directors were eleeted for the ensuing
year: C. II. Parmele, president; J. M.
