A peculiar incident in relation to the
death of the late Wm. Tucker was the
presentiment of his elder son, who was
living in Missouri at the tinie.be heard of
his father's death before that sad occur
rence happened. He dreamed one night
a that he saw his father lying dead on a
bsdstcad with a cloth covered over his
face. In the vision he saw the room an-J
all its surroundings quite distinctly. On
Lis arrival in this city, three weeks after
w be sorrowfully found his dream verified
to the minutest particular.
At a mettiag of tho school board a
motion was carried to the effect that
Prof. Drummond be authorized to tak

appropriate exercises to the scholars for
the celebration of Arbor day, Monday.
April 2:J. A sum of money was al-o
granted for the purchase of trees to be
planted in the high school grounds. All
the children from every school in the
'city will be present at the high school on
that eventful day and as many us pos
sible of our citizens as can attend arc
politely requested to be present to add a
zest to the exercises by their presence.
Ladies that are lovers of fine dresses,

will test the strength of the entire com

The Welsh Prize Singers.
The Welsh Prize Singers were very
poorly patronized la.it night there being
only about one hundred persons, nearly
all ut whom represented tha intellect
and refinmeiit of the -city. There was no
excuse for any person who laid the slight
ed claim to artistic taste and comprehen
sion of muNical sounds to be absent from
such an entertainment unless it was sick
ness, poverty or business. It reflects
great discredit on any city when what is
vulgarly called a "leg show" can fill
every seat in a theatre, and a chaste, in
talWgtnt and refining entertainment can
not draw enough people to pay for the
rent of the building.
The receipts from that performance
will throw a damper ou the future efforts
on the Y. L. K. R. Association in that
direc tion. Those ladies efforts night and
day for the past three weeks, without
any recompense, to make the show asuc
cebs, bhould have met with the apprecia
tion and support of all our best citizens.
A great deal of the singing would
have been received with more favor if it
had not been sung in the Welsh tongue,
as it was, the soprano song "I'll show
you a pathway that leads to that king
dom called home" by Miss Maggie Pur
vis wns beautifully rendered. Every
note was deliciously soft and sympathet
ic, the higher notes being reached with
fplendid ease and flexibility. Above all,
and a usual exception to operatic sing
ing, was the distinct manner in which
every word was uttered.
Miss Annie Hope sang the very old
b dlad of "Punchinello" with its refrain,
"Bravo, bravo," with marked effect and
delicacy of feeling.
Miss Mary Davies sang "Me and you
old Dad" in a manner that attracted in
tense interest and attention from eyery
All these songs were loudly applauded,
in fact, every selection met with cheerful
approbation from an appreciative and
The entertainment was par-excellence
and beyond the slightest adverse criti
A Pleasant Surprise.
Mrs. C. E. Thornburg, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. A. Tarsch, was ij the city
yesterday visiting her parents. About
five o'clock Mr. and Mrs. Tarsch were
making preparations to return with
their daughter to Omaha when some
frifnds urgently requested the party to
st.iy iu town over-night. The causa of
this request was developed later in the
evening at the G. A. K. hall where about
sixty persons of both sexes including
friends and invited guests had assembled
to honor the "silver wedding" of Mr.
and Mrs. Tarsch. What a noble recorf
and fulfilment of Divine laws ! Twenty-
lire years of happy married life with
four children, twe daughters and two
sons, to bless their union, and gather
round them in their declining days.
There were present at tho party many
a modest youth and blushing maiden to
whom that nuptial celebration will be as
a guiding star in their future lives.
Such instances of connubial love are
the mora conspicuous and creditable as
the time rolls on and the world appears
to become more selfish, as is praved by
the innumerable divorce cases which fill
the columns of newspapers all over the

Last Saturday's Lawlessness.
We haye been severely criticized to
day because we did not condemn the
strikers more severely last night. The
reason we did not, was because we want
ed to give the officers a chance to arrest
the guilty parties, but they were too slow
and the men have left for part.3 unknown.
Assaults last week because too numerous
on the persons of new engineers, who did
not dare come up town after dark with
out being met by a crowd of three or
four strikers, the result of which would
be that the engineers would be slugged
with a billy by unknown parties. In view
of the condition of things ths mayor put
on two or three extra policemen to se if
the iaw could be enforced and about 8
o'clock policeman Buzzell caught a
striker in the act of striking a new en
gineer, about sixty years old, with a bil
It; he arrested him and in return was
struck by some one in the crowd with a
billy, which caused him to let go ot the
man he had under arrest, who then made
good his escape.
Later on in tire eyening an assault was
made ou two strangers, who happened to
be taking in the city, their heads being
badly bruised up with the billeys used.
About midnight another assault was
made ou Mr. Buzzell by a m;in who
sprang out of a doorway as he was pass
ing by, at the same time receiving a
shower of brickbats from two men he
had just met. Mr. B. opened fire on
them by filing two Ehots, at this several
parties made their appearance and Mr.
B. thought it was time to look out for
himself and disappeared very suddenly.
'That's my Pop, it's not Loaded."
It was only the ether day tnat we
wrote an article about the foolishness of
parents allowing their children to play
with fire-arms. This morning a little
boy nearly lost his life through another
youngster being allowed to play with
his father's revolver. The children were
standing in Mrs. Jones yard on Main
street and Lou Jones had a large re
volver in his hand. The mother of the
smaller boy (who is about four years of
age) noticed Lou playing with the re
volver, and thinking her child was in
danger, requested Lou to put the re
volver away. In return he poiuted the
inuzzio of the revolyer at her and said:
"that a my pop," and. Lou's mother
jestingly remarked, "it's not loaded."
Oh! I've heard that remark thousands of
times said the other lady, you should'nt
allow children to play with such dan
gerous weapons, you don't know
whether it is loaded or not until it is
too late." With that she went inte the
house leaving her little boy standing
where she first saw him. In the mean
time Lou had handed the revolver to his
younger brother who deliberately struck
the child a fearful blow on the forehead
with the weapon. '
The frantic mother rau out of the house
on hearing her child's screams to find
him pale as a sheet with the exception of
the crimson life-blood that poured down
his face. The mother of tho boy that
struck the blow, Mrs. Jones, asked her
child, "What did you hit him for?" he
defiantly replied, "I hit him!" If the
reyolyer had been loaded he would have

A Close Shave.
Last evening, a boy about six Tears
of age ran in front of a spirited team
outside Mathews1 store on Main. He
was knocked down and appeared rolling
about nnder the horses' legs. The next
moment he was on his back and one of
the wheels passing over his neck, at the
same time he twisted his body in such a
manner that the wheel passed vertically
down his body. A number of persons
rushed to the scene thinking him dead
They carried him into the harness shop of
Dick Streight and washed his face. He
was unhurt, with the exception of a few
bruises and cheerily remarked "they were
a'going pretty lively, wasn't they," as he
left for his home. It was a most mirac
A lady postmistress was asked, not
long since, why it was that the mails were
so much delayed of late. "Indeed, sir,"
said she, "there are so many of these pos
tal cards for me to read that it takes my
whole time, so that I can't attend to the
mails." "Great heavens, womnj you
don't pretend to read all the postal cards
deposited in your office, do you?" said
the anxious inquirer. "Why, of coarse I
de," innocently answered the lady of
ficial, "for as nothing scurrilous, ob
scene, or wicked must be written on
them, I must first read them myself in
order te ascertain whether it would be
proper to let thm pass through the office.

This waist is designed to meet the requirements of ladies who
cannot, comfortably, wear a still and rigid corset, while it can be worn
with as much comfort as an ordinary dress waist. It will give tho
same elegance of contour as tho heaviest boned corset in the market,
while the stays are so arranged that they will give Hijijiort to the back
and spine and in nowise interfere with the freedom and comfort
ot the wearer. The weight of the clothing is transferred frtm the
hips. to the shoulders by means of the shoulder-straps, which are ad
justable to suit any form or length of waist.
