A commendable move is being made
by souie citizens in trimming out their

Mr. Poland, who runs a lime kiln at
Louisville, thinks the quality of the stone
in his quarry will warrant him in starting
two more kilns. Cass county has a good
nnder-lay of stone of first class lime
qualities and a large shipping business
may some day be the result.

The canned goods, property of F.

Wheeler block, the brick building on

The little town of Union is putting
on a metropolitan air she has become
stirred up over the fact that "gambling
in Union is getting to be altogether too
common," and that "there are three or
four notorious resorts in town; a shame
and disgrace to our city and they should
be suppressed." The way for a town to
successfully handle such places is to find
ont they are in existence, locate them,
and then bodily fire them; and Union has
the material in her to do this.

be sent to Central City, la., tomorrow

We know it's a great temptation to
talk about the weather and recent politi
cal transpirancies, and for that reason
have excused those who, when asked for
news, would reply My wife told me to

"I must build a summer kitchen," or "I

we ask for, and will carry a hatchet for
the man that says "its a fine day."
We have been shown a design for
an upholstered front gate, which seems
destined to become very popular. The
foot-board is cushioned and there is a
warm sap-stone on either .side; the in
insids step being adjustable so that a
short girl can bring her lips to the line
of any given mustache without trouble.
If the gate is occupied at 10:30 p, m., an
iron hand extends from one gate post

turns him around, and he is at once
started homeward, bv a steel foot. The
girl can, if she likes, set thia part at a
later hour than 10:30.

ber something about these occasions.
The powerful prssenger mogul en

arrived yesterday afternoon. It was

The fact that the neighboring waters
were swarmed with geese and other game
of the feathered tribe has weighed heavi
ly on the minda of Plattsmoutb. huntsr
men during this nice weather, and yes
terday a party of four was mustered
together and a hunt taken 09 the Platte
bottoms. The company was made op of
Jim Antill, A. W. White, Walt Ilolmes

bottoms. A fine flock was sighted, and
all the boys were there, but Jim was the
only one that brought borne a trophy.

A Grand Production.
"One of the most celebrated scene paint

haps given mote attectign than any otht
to the painting of scenery for legitinnt.
plays, is William Yoegtlein. It was he
who painted the scenery for the legiti
mate productions at Booth's Theatre, t
well as for Margaret Mather's fine scenic
production of 'Romeo and --Juliet,'
which enjoyed a successful run at th
Union Square Theatre two seasons ago.
Voegtlein's latest triumph, however, i.
his adtnu&Lle work as shown in hh
elaborate production of Dr. B'rd,s sub
lime tragedy, ''The Gladiator," which
he has painied for Manager J. II. Mack,
who is starring the great tragedian,
Robert Downing, as Spartacus. The
scenery presented in "The Gladiator"
was a surprise to lovers of the legitimate.
Anything quite so extensive was totally
unlooked for, and it had not a little to
do toward augmenting the success of the
star, whom the energy and enterprise of
Manager Mack had sarrounded in so
complete a manner. Everything in con
nection with the performance appeared
as realistic and srue to Ijfe as possible.
Those who will not go and see Robt.
Downing and his great company will
miss a rare treat which they will regret

The evangelist, Mr. E. F. Miller, had
an over-crowded church to talk to last
night. He spoke of his own experience.
The singing of the solo, "My Mother's
Hands," by him, was very touching,
for Mr. Miller sings much expression in-
jm words. In place of a bible reading,
quotation pt aprirjtnre were given by
the congregat ion. The meeting did not
number many converts.
This afternoon a meeting was held
from 3 to 4 o'clock, to which a good
number came to hear Mr. Miller, and a
bible reading or talk was given,
Tonight's meeting will - doubtless be
one of great interest as the singing and
speaking will be especially to young
men. All are cordially invited. The
subject to be spoken on tomorrow even
ing is 'Temperance." The seating
capacity of the church has beisn increased
to its greatest capacity so as jo accom
modate a large number.
Now is the busy season for black
