Why is a newspaper like a pretty girl?

of many types, its form is made up, it is
chased though, inclined to be giddy, it
enjoyes a good press, the more rapid th.
better, it has a weackness for gossip,
talks a good deal, can stand some praise,
and is awful proud of a new dress. I
can not be kept in good humor without
cash. Please pay up. Echo.

Omaha & Council Bluffs Moter company,
died at his home in Merctrvillo, yester

weeks he has been unable to attend to
his duties owing to the trouble which
eventually caused his death, heart failure
He was much admired by all who knew
him as he always proved himself to I e
straightforward and ve.-y iiidustriout-,
with a welcome for nil with whom I
came in contact.- What inakis his dealt'
more sad is the knowledge that he ha
only been mairitd a few mouths aim

A Grand Conference.'
Such a grand, brotherly conference as
wai held at Pawnee City the last three
days is a powerful proof of the vtot good
that can be accomplished by the Young
Men's Christian Association in this state.
This was only a conference of the six
counties constituting the Second District
of the Nebraska Y. M. C. A., yet there
were 113 delegates there from towns
other than Pawnee City. The citizens
of that place threw open their homes,
hotels, and churches, to keep and accom
modate the young men free of charge.and
welcomed them most heartily. The con
ference opened last Friday night in the
M. E. church and the sessions till last
night were divided ap among the Metbo
dist, Presbyterian and "First United
Presbyterian churches. (The seating
capacity of the two former was 400 each,
nd the latter, about 800). The object
of the conference was to bring the young
men of the Young Men's Christian Asso
ciation of this district together and
strengthen them together in the work,and
brinr before them a full realization of
the importance of the work they are
engaged in. how each one could accom
plish the most good personally.
The experiences and talks on important
.joints were most valuable to all, and each
ne seemed to take hold with a desire to
see the association efforts successful in
this district. On very important example
in the conference of what can be done
is found in Mission Creek, which is
nerely a country church located fifteen
niles southwest of Pawnee City. Here,
n the 12th of last December an organi
zation of fifteen members was effected.
Up to this time these fifteen have
increased their membership to thirty-
even, have had nine conversions and
in average attendance of twenty-six; yet
che church is in the country and the
fellows come from cne to five miles.
)nc delegation the Beatrice boys was
very helpful with the singing, having a
choir of twenty-four voices, leader and
organist. This choir with their grand
raise anthems, which they could sing
vi tli all spirit and earnestness, was a
power with the congregations and fairly
Look the buildings; but the great beauty
r th-2 choir is in this, the members are
Christians and took active part in the
services with speaking and prayer.
During all the conference the kind and
rotherly feeling among the yocng men
was strikingly evident, and last night at
farewell meeting the ministers expressed
th'sir gratitude to the association for the
goo 1 influence it was having on their
churches and their city, and especially
hey felt grateful toward the young men
for the example of brotherly love among
the different denominations.
Yesterday morning the several churches
vere occupied by leaders from the dele
xates, and every church was well filled
nd nt one congregation was disap
pointed in the ability of t ; servant to give
t m a living lesson from the Word of
G d. Last night in one collection $364.50
was jdsed towards employing a mau to
do work in small towns. The conference
closed by all the delegates joining hands
iroun I t!ie room and singing "Bhssrd
be t ie Tie that Binds," and after the
enedictioa Chairmnn Waterman declar
d t! e conference adjourned. During

J W. Ciak's Funeral.
The lu.i- ral ot the late J. W. Clark,
.tifd at Omaha last Frid ty night
evn.-.-vd at his lio.ne in Wt-eping Watt'-r
ostjulay attirnoon at 2 o'clock. The
onrog.itioiial church, vhere a service
his conducted by Ruv. Iludlcy, pastor
if tho church, was crowded to the doors
ome time before the appointed hour for
ihe arrival of the cortege. A good num
ber of friends of the deceased of this city
left for Weeping Water yesterday morn
ing to attend the funeral. The deceased
was well known here and all who
Had the pleasure of his acquaintance will
speak iu thelHghest terms of him, as he
was a good, live business man, genial in
conversation and very generous in all his
dealings. He leaves a wife and child to
mourn his loss and the whole community
will miss very mu-lmne who occasionally
honors it by his visits.
The report of au elopement which
occurred at Louisville last Thursday
night, reached us today, and we are in
-lined to believe that its style varies a
little from the everyday, ordinary elope
rueuts. Mr. W. Short, a prominent
young ladies' man of that town became
fascinated with a goung lady named
Lucy Johnson, in whom he placed
enough confidence to entrust his darling
with a $150 gold watch and a good
amount in money. Last Thursday night
he purchased the young lady a costume
so she could attend a masquernde ball
held there that evening. At the ball
that niyht the young man searched in
vain for the girl and was greatly
alarmed to discover that she was ab
sent. It was discovered later that she
Lad eloped that night with a married
man named W. Bringman, who left a
family at that place. The pair was ar
rested at Atchison and returned to
Lonisville yesterday morning. Judge
Sullivan left for Louisville this morn
iog to plead fur the defense.
