The Funeral Train.
Superintendent Mignell of the
B. A M. very kindly tendered awpeci
al train free, from this city to Louis
ville and return for the A. O. U. W.
and the immediate friends of the
late Charles Hascmeier to enable
them to attend the funeral of the
deceased. The train consisting of
four coaches and a caboose was in
charge of conductor Raney .engineer
McLennan (the man for whom the
thy eased had been tiring) and Fire
man John Fair.
The coaches were croweded with
the friends of the deceased and KiO
members of the A. O. U. W. who.
wearing crape and Jthe badges of
the order, made an impressive ;;nd
touching appearance. The engine
No. 07 which is usiui'ly run by J. H.
Graham was beautifully decorated
in black and white, while on the
boiler head over the pilot was
placed the shield and anchor of the
A. O. U. W. heavily draped in
mourning. Superintendent Hignell,
Mr. Hawksworth and Mr- Greusel
were all present and gave their
personal attention to the starting
of the train. The city editor of THE
Herald had known the deceased
for nearly twenty years and it is
withunfeigned pleasure that we note
so many testimonials of kindness
and esteem from his employers and
friends, many of whom carried
elaborate floral decorations.
A delightful high five part 3' was
given last evening by Mrs. Julius
Pepperberg in honor of the "Jolly

young people of the city were
present and enjoj'ed themselves in
an eminent degree. About 12
o'clock choice refreshments were
served, to which ample justice was
done. The king- prizes were
awarded to Will Reinhackle, an im
mense cigar, and Nellie Taylor, a
box of bon bons. The booby prizes,
a toy rooster and a tiny cigar, were
won by Janet Livingston and
Charley Murphy. The commodious
Pepperberg mansion was beauti

present expressed themselves as

' The Balloon Ascension,
The balloon ascension last eve
ning from the base ball park was
the best we ever saw and was wit
nessed by fillip- 3,0(10 people. The
great balloon was filled in fifteen
minutes and Prof. Kyle went up
almost out of sight without a hitch
of any kind: swinging on a single
bar with the earth far below him
made quite a thrilling spectacle.
When the daring terouaut had
reached a high altitude he pulled
loose the parachute, let go of the
balloon and down he came, like an
arrow at first hut in a second the
parachute opened and he came
down as gracefully as could the
plumaged denizens of the ethereal
world. As soon as the balloon was
released of its load it did not shoot
up into the air "but turned over,
emptying out the smoke, looking
like a veritable volcano in cloud
land. Prof. Kyle landed nicely,
without a scratch, in Sellout's yard,
southeast of Kd Oliver's country
seat, less than two miles from town,
with timber all around him but
which fortunately did not interfere.
The balloon drifted further south
and west, landing in a lot near the
fairground owned by Mr. Dove. A
German woman seeing the monster
air ship come down was at first
terribly frightened but soon con
cluded that it was abandoned pro
perty and took possession. She
was cuttMig the ropes off and no
doubt would have completely
ruined it had not Prof. Kyle's part
ner, who was watching it, driven up
just when he did. The old lady
was even determined not to give it
up but was finally persuaded that
the claimants were the rightful
owners of the property. The eld
lady don't read the papers, hence
she had not heard of a balloon as
cension in Nebraska.
One thing should be said here
and now and that is that the public
treated the aeronaut shamefully by
stealing a view of the entire show
without paying a cent for it. Only
$18 was raised in a crowd of three
thousand people, who were scat
tered about in the near neighbor
hood of the park. Such a niggardly
spirt was a disgrace to the town.
The professor will make an ascen
sion from Glenwood to-morrow.
Charley Cummins floes not walk
on stilts but if you wish to address
him you must raise your voice and
elevate your head, for Charley is
the most important man in town
and only with difficulty can he con
descend to speak to common folks.
His sudden elevation was brought
about by the arrival of a fine boj
yesterday afternoon. We think he
will be all right when the novelty
of the situation has disappeared.
