Where boys are allowed to jump on

possible be the means of having it pre
vented in some way. No accidents hare
occurred in that way recenty, but if boys
are allowed that privilege much lnger,
there surely will be sooner or later an ac

thoughts of regret on account of nesrli
A young man who attended the
grand rally at Glenwood Wednesday
evening expressed considerable dissatis
faction to some young lady friends with
whom he was holding a conversation be
cause of the difficulty experienced in
veiling a annK. une ot tne young
ladies replied, "Well, why didn't you
drink water." The young man did not
answer as rapidly nor with as much
fluentness as is usual for him. "That
w-wh-wh-what I m-m-mean, water."
A lady by the name of Mrs. Greenly

watched last night but no one put in nn
appearance. She has two children and
she supposed some one was trying to

Already a large crowd have handed
tneir names into the base ball club, ex
pressing their intention of accorapaniii
the team to Council Bluffs on Sunday
next. The required number to secure a
special rate has been secured and the fare
for the round trip will only amount to
51.10. The train will leave the B. & M.
depot at 8:30 and go by way of Pacific
Junction. It is expected that about
100 will go from here. Lake Manawa is
gaining a wide reputation as a favorite
resort and in their efforts to have a good
time we hope they may be successful
i.ast eyenmg about the time the
crowd left the depot after the trains had
pulled out, a little troulbe took place be-
tnecu i. v-uweur, a linking enneer
and J. N. Shott, a scab switchman. The

greeted him with various flowc ry names
which Shott would not accept. As

considerable velocity against his cranium
inflicting an ugly wound. This morn
ing Shott was arrested and fined $5 and

Shott paid his fine and reciprocated by
procuring a warrant for Callicut charg

and calling several disagreeable names,

Mr. Critchfield Dear Sir: Seeing a
notice in the Weeping Water paper soli
citing the names of those who yoted for
Wm. II, Harrison in 1810. I am now in
my 73rd year. I was then living in Ox
ford, Butler Co., Ohio, and I am proud
to say I voted for old Tippacanoe and
such a demonstration in that campaign
was never before or since been known in
the United States. Coon skin, hard ci
der and log cabins were plentiful.

shall vote for his grandson, Benjamin
Harrison. I hare experienced some of
the democratic administration, and I do
not want any more of them in mine. I

Judge Vanatta recieved a letter-from
his late law student, W. M. Manning, to
day, announcing the fact that he had re

dent can be found. Mr. Manning's many

The Belgian Kins and Queen.
His reign will be marked by three imper
ishable traits: he has virtually abolished
capital punishment in Brfgium by consist
ently refusing o sign a death warrant; he
has founded, out of bis own private purse, a
prize of 1,000 for the best '-'works of intelli
gence," and he has extended the dominipn of
bis country and the arm of civilization to the
dark continent. He has also instituted a
purely military order, the "Belgian Lion,"
which can only be conferred on those who
have served blamelessly In the Belgian army
for twenty-five years.
The queen has brought up her young
(taugulOTB in a pure atmosphere of home life.
She used to be rarely seen abroad, save with
one or two of the little princesses beside her
in the pony carriage she was so fond of
driving. An excellent borsewomar., gji?
trained her own horses; a splendid mu
sician, she had a telephone constructed in
her apartments at Brussels, so that she could
follow from her sofa the opera given at the
theater do la JHonnale. She was the de
voted nurse of the late King Leopold. Her
sincere piety conquered the rationalistic ten
dencies of the aged sovereign, and she alone
was suffered to pray at his bedside. She has
been invariably kind to her brother and
sister-in-law, hiding the pangs it cost her to
see their son, Prince Baudoin, growing up to
Oil the place which should have been her dead
son a. (she baa been absolutely and unself
ishly devoted to the unfortunate Empress
unariotte in her curs misfortune; and if.
owing to her retiring disposition, she has
not played a more conspicuous part at court,
tho is loved and will be remembered for
mar. deeds of charity and generosity.
Some day 1 Born day I the weary cry
Of souls too sadly worn to live,
Save in the hope that time may glra
Some richer blessing:, by and by;
And mournful is that hopeful sigh
tSome day! Some day! The heart once light
Has learned too well th"X siren song:
Let lire and thrive the right and wrong
The good upheld, the wrong set right.
The just shall see; twill end the fight
Someday? Some day? Twill come, ah me.

number of storms we haye already had
the most destructive one so far this year

from tornadoes last year renders their oc
