The small boys in this city are
engaged in a dangerous practice
every time an entertainment is in
progress at the opera house. They
go up the stairs on the east side ot
the buildinjr, pull themselves up
nto the tirst window and stand on
the window sill. They then reach
over to the next window which is
about three feet away catch hold
of the wall and then pull 'them
selves over, and repeat it four or
five times until they reach the front
of the opera house, where they can
go through a window into the in
side. The opera house manage
ment should keep a watch on
Young America and put a stop to
such proceedings or there will be a
good chance for the undertaker if it
s stiil kept up.

country have been try i ng 1o rob tin's
city of a great honor. Only a day j
or two ago the Chicago Tribune tried
to convince itt readers that the "T:i- j
ra ra Boom de-ay" song originated j
in England. That song belongs to i
Lincoln. It will be remembered
that Thatcher's "Tuxedo" was fir.t i
placed before the public in this city, j
and Hughey Dougherty on the stage
of the Funke gave the first rendition
of the now celebrated song. The
current number of the New York
Dramatic News says: "It appears
that Henry J. Sayers of the Tuxedo
company wrote the words of 'Ta-ra-ra
Boom de-ay,' and arranged the
air, which he first heard sung by ne
groes in St. Louis a number of years
ago. The song in its present
form was first sung on the stage,
July 22, 1891, at Lincoln, Neb. Mr
Sayers gave a copy of it to S. P Coo-
