Iow, is in the city vuiting relatives. Mrs. Harrison, the wife of Phil Harri son, the well-known poultry-raiser, hits gone to Omaha today. Conductor IS. M. Loverin and family are hack from a vioit Kapt where Mr. Lovcrin has been visiting hi brother. We were informed today that Mr. E. II. Lewis was a candidate for the nom ination for City Treasurer, against Mr. Waterman. Mr. IJ. IX Morgan moves to Milton, Kans , next week. He will run a ferry at that laee over the Arkansas river. He run a ferry over twenty-live years ago. Intimation has been received in this city that two Evangelists, Messrs. W. A. (,'lcgitt and Iiilhorn, who have lately !een in Kearney, will arrive in this city next week. Wa have been in forms J of two or three important items lately, but are re quested not to make them public until further developcmenti. The deal of a "scoop" in regard to them, takes away our appetite. Hurry up ladies and gen tlemen. Oh! Dan? We'll miss you! It's the wish of all the bachelors in town that you will acquire prosperity and happiness. The event occurs next week in Ottumwa, Iowa. Miss O'Neill the Heramd wishes you a bright and prosperous future. Don't forget to niakeyour husband's Cof fee strong and sweet. The brother of 3Ir. Pickens, the en gineer on tha Central Pacific is dead. He diod before Mr. Pickens of this city arriv ed at Sacremento, Cal. Mr. Pickens has started from Ogden with his brother's body, which will be buried in Chicago. We feel the deepest sympathy for Mr. Pickens in his sad afflictions. W e met a gentleman yesterday who had formerly been in the lumber business. He had tried to work out the telegraph pole problem that we published in Tues day's issue, lie said that he had meas ured wood in almost every shape but that problem puzzled him. He made the answer 74 J feet We should like to hear from someene else that is not a profes sional teacher. The music for Roland Reed perfor mance will be exceptionably first class, entirely new, having been procured by I. Kalisky for the occasion, Repretoire be ing as follows: "Eureka Overture" by Weigand. "Standard Overture" by Wei gand, Comet Solo violia and piano ac companiment, Medley, "Hush little baby, don't you cry," Galop. The company has a very fine leader to assist the orches tra. Don't fail to secure your tickets, as present prospects indicate a large house. A minister and a lawyer, both resi dents of this city, were joking the other day. Said the minister, addressing the lawyer: "If everyone were to se! tie their differences among themselves, what would become of all the lawyers i" "We wcnld act like St. Paul, arise and fight in the cause of the Lord," was the law yer's witty reply. To understand the point of this joke, it was intended to convey the meaning that the ministerial ranks would be oyer crowded, then what would become ef the ministers. St. Paul, before he became an apostle, is credited by historians with having been a very able lawyer. Mr. Roland Reed is the second of tin a tractions this handsome new thrntr. lias had. As the central figure of Mars den's "Cheek" he toek immensely well with a large audience last evening. I'c has elaborated this creation to a point which makes it practically a new thing. When he is on the stage there is ne dull moment in fie piece. His amusing and natural impudence convulses the house The supporting company have bten well selected as to personnel, and there is in particular one lady who plays a design ing adventuress so well that it is life-like in its fidelity, and almost ranks as a well- studied portraitur with that of the star. New York Morning Journal. Quite a number of persons in this city hare had notices served upon them to lay down new sidewalks. The first notice that should have been served should hare been to the propeity .holders near the northwest corner of Fourth and Main. None hare yet been served at that point which is the worst place in town. The responsible parties hare hitherto borne a good reputation for keeping the sidewalk in good order and say that they will put down a walk as soon as the sewerage and paving is done. Well, gentlemen on behalf of the feminine gender, repair the walk, so that it wont give lot of hoodlums the oppor tunity to guff away at the discomfort of ladies when they step on that water-trap. ( Only a Washboard. In our wanderings down Main street, yesterday, we passed a f econd-hand store, outside of which was placed a washboard, on which was chalked: "10c." If that washboard could bo sold at a profit for ten cents it would have been bought for about five. And what a vista of misery and suffer ing does such and item suggest. Washerwomen and laundry women, as a rule, are looked down upon with con tempt ly those who do not follow that business. But there is no class that is more deserving of a good name than those "who take in washing." The business is not inherited, it comes about by a natural progression of inevi table laws, commonly termed poverty. The woman may have held a high posi tion in society, boen wealthy and courted for her intellect. The husband, in many cases, may belong to a noble family, be educated, and a smart man. Hut pover ty gives him and his family a smack in the face, and what is the alternitive ? He can't procure work; the wife says. "We'll take in washing." They do so. Their patrons "stand them off." Want comes in at the door of their miserable abode and they sell their furniture, in eluding the "washboard." Oh! ye, who have never felt the pangs of hunger, and adversity, do you ever realize the sufferings of worthy poor. In the depths of winter you throw off your dirty, and in many cases, disgusting linen, for the washerwoman. Articles that you are ashamed to expose to the view of your most intimate acquain tauccs. The washerwoman leans her weary shoulders over the washtub, inhal ing the fumes arising from the rags she is washing. She retires to rest about midnight The work is finished, the child requeires medicine the family want food. Knock at the front deor. "Go round to the back, we've visitors to night." She goes round to the'back. They count the pieces. Say there is one short and complain generally about the appea.'ance of the articles at fifty cents a dozen, and . . , .. , 0 . , wind up by saying "call round Saturday and I will pay you." Thft woman returns home without er- haps a mite, and as it is late at night, she is insulted once or twice by hood lums. Iter husband or child asks her if she got any money, no, she answers, "They told me to call, Saturday." If there is any human being who pro- poses to be a christian, who expects that thev will enter the Kinavlom of Heaven, that beats thtir washwoman with indiffer ence or contempt or"stands them off, "then such a person is a foul blot on the face of human nature. There are such people, and they will exist in spite of newspaper articles and biblical teachings, but our mission is to expose them if possible, and we will exert our bekt efforts to do so, for when a persoa can witness such an advertise- men in a "free country" and the "glorious west" as "washboard 10c" it proves there it . . . . , T. is something rotten in the state of Den- mark. I A Brave Engineer Jsone of the passengers killed? That s good; lay me down; good-bye, boys." Such were the last words of Engineer Robert Gardner, who died at his locomo tive throttle on Sunday night last in th' rvilrottd collision near Huntington. He could have saved himself, but he was charged with the safety of many passen gers and he died at his post to save those whose lives were entrusted to his care. When he saw that a fearful collision was inevitable, ha thought only of the responsioue uury ne nau accepieti, ana he stood to his throttle and gave his own I if- t Jan tl.. .wr;i t- H,. efr.r. 1 1 .

A Story for Vlvisectlonists, A physician, who was also a professor in a medical college, was engaged for a great part of hls time m the vivisection of animals. He had a little daughter of whom he was very fonJ who waa teBaer-ly devoted to him. Be I resorted to all sorts of methods to prevent Der Irom learning of Ins chief occupation. She grew to the age of 14 without any knowl edge of the fact. One day she was visited by another girl, of her own age, who, with tears in her eyes, said she had lost her white greyhound. ''What shall we do to find her" the visitor asked. "Oh, I know," said the doctor's daughter. 4 we will go to the college and get papa, and he wiIi ueip us gnj uer for you there's no time to be lost." The two girls started for the Medical col lege. A careless doorkeeper let them into the laboratory where the professor was at work. They saw two students standing over a table, and the young girl's father, tho doc tor, was engaged in tho work of dissection upon a living dog, which was none other than the lost greyhound. "Ledar' screamed tho dog'a mistress. Tho jioor animal heard tho call, roused it self and sprang away from its tormentors. It was unable to stand and sank again to tho floor.

But no manufacturer produe- ing shirts in his factory in the regular way can afford to make and sell shirts for that price. New York Evening Sun. The British Magazine Rifle. The magazine rifle selected for the use of the British army was recently put through n. series of tests to measure its accuracy. penetration, range, etc. The dilatoriness of the English seems to have stood them in good iUWI 1U13 V "19, U nuilO UIO UCI'UWB "J jj: th Mauser-7Mr mazazine rifle scarcely a twelve month after its adop- tion, because of its caliber (11 mm.), they have benefited by the experience, and pin their faith to a caliber nearly one-third smaller.
