fi.. cff l.ilmr s!iriii!r-liki breezed
which blew from thu southwest all day
yesterday, brought a valuable rain last
evening. The lightning, which was as
incessant as in mid-summer, r a rifled our
atmosphere, and the dashing rain gave
us a fresh, bracing air today which it is
delightful to breathe, and dampened our
dry soil all for our good. So why
fihould we kick about the mud?
The K. C. Train last evening carried
two passengers who wished to go out on
the cut-off toward Ashland.'a gentleman
and his wife, whose na-nes we were un
able to learu. They were to get off at
Oreapolis and wait for the Schuyler
train. As told to us it seems the conduc
tor there got off the front end cf the train
registered and signaled to go on, for
getting the two passengers here to change.
The couple, however, attempted to get
off while the train was moving and the
lady received a sprain, from the the pain
of which she fainted when helped into
the station. Agent Clement tele
graphed here for T. P. Livingston, who
went out and treated the injury.
A very small audience assembled
last night to hear the entertainment
given by St. Lukes Chapter of St. An
drews Brotherhood, and a portion only
of the programme was given. Two
readings by Messrs. Taite and Barber,
"Misadventure at Margabe,' (Ingoldsbj
Legends) by .Mr. Barber, and ' She IVoulti
b? a Mason" by Mr. Taite. These wen
interesting and comic, the latter bt'inu
rendered especially so in Mr. Taite irrcs
;stable manner. Messrs. Kempster and
Barwick sang respectively the '-Owl" and
"The Maid of the Mill." The two quar
tettes by Messrs. Barwick, Crawl her,
Kempster and Wead were tatefullv
rendered, and appreciated by tin
audience. . Pl-ittsmouth will soon have as beau
tiful and well graded streets as any city
of hills could have; furnishiug driveway
and pirk aveuues equal to those of any
of her sister cities. The streets following

and Sixth streets the filling of the old
eretk bed and cutting of Sixth street
hill, promises to leave them in first-elax
condition. Credit is due the citizens an i
authorities for what has been done and
is being done, but to do the size of our
city justice the work should not ccare

He Adepts all Schemes Possible to
Look Out For Fraud.
Any fair-minded voter who realizes
the meanness and dcceitfulncss which is
being bowed down to by McShane in
this campaign, cannot but turn in diagust
from the support of a man who seeks
public oflice by such dishonorable means.
One measure adopted, according to
reports, will be the circulation, on elec
tion day, of tickets which are like the
republican ticket in all particulars, with
Hi the rxcention of one name. Where
the name of John M. Thayer thould be, j
is printed, "Democratic candidate for j
Governor, John A. McShane."
Another scheme, which is now being
carried on is, sending liters signed by
McShane, to voters over the state. In
closed with the letter is his (McShane)
letter of acceptance, which is mentioned,
and five pastrrs, bearing the wiitten
name "John A. Mi Shane.'' which arc

Last niht, with all the rain and mud,
quite an audience of men gathered at the

Hon. J. C. Watson, our caauate for
float representative, spoke for about thirty
minutes. Though short, his speech was
complete and interesting. Mr. Watson
confined the attention of his hearers
largely to the politics of this district,
touching the tariff question and national
politics lightly. JJe spoke smoothly and
earnestly, proving his points and com
manding the close attention ot his ueax
ers Many favorable remarks for Mr.
Watson on account of his address, testify
for him, Ufd he will receive support from
the republicans of lias county next Tues
day, which will accord hitn a nice plur
ality, and be an honor to republicans of
John L. Webster, of Omaha spoke for
about an hour. Commencing with the
national ticket he swept things clean,
clear down to the bottom of the ticket
just as the republicans of Cass county
will do next Tuc-aday. Mr. Webster is a
powerful speaker, and held ihe attention
of all. carrying their thoughts with his
I arguments and drawing many rounds of
tpplause and approval from those pres
ent. A strong point of the speech was to
show voters the necessity of casting tln-ir
vote straight, the folly of scratching, and
assuring them of the victory which is so
easily theirs, by so doing.
Monday Will be a Cold Day.
Pittsburg Commercial Gazette: The
patrons of the ever-popular Academy
have a rare treat of fun this week. "It's
a Cold Day, or the Laplanders," is the
title of the humorcu3 and interesting
burlesque there. The Academy won't be
left this week, as the clever and jolly
company there i sure to fill it. nightly.
They are well wortu seeing.
Pittsburg Times: "A Cold Day, ,or
the Laplanders," at the Academy of
Music, delighted a large audience last
evening. It is replete with funny situa
tions, capital hits, pleasing music and
good songs, and produces roars of
Pittsburg Post; "A Cold Pay" was
played to a packed house at the Academy
last eyetiing. The company is excellent.
A number of the latest songs arc intro
duced, and every situation is side
splitting. Phil Young is pleased to announce to
the theatre going public that A Cold
Day" will please everyone that likes fun
and fine singing, and should like to see a
big house next Monday.
Why Was li?
3In. Editor: As a citizen and tax
payer of thU city I should like to know
why the gas lamp on the corner of Cth
and Marble streets, is placed on the side
of the street directly opposite the cross
ings, in which location it is little or no
jise to persons passing that point on such
a dark and muddy night as last evening.
The lamp was probably placed where
it is because one or more interested citi-
ns requested that it be placed there, as
at U the way street lamps are located. j
