Nebraska Celebrating Her
Twenty-fifth Birthday.
Distinguished Speakers Review the
Past and Predict the Future
and Recalling the Struggles
and Trials of the Early
The silver annivert-ary celcbra
tion of Nebraska's admission into
the union was inauguarated at Lin
coln last evening: The city was
crowded with people and the streets
were gaily decorated. Kxercises
last evening were purely of an ora
torical and literary nature. The
Lansing theater was crowded at an
arly hour. The main floor of the
auditorium was reserved for the
men and women who hare resided
in Nebraska for over a quarter of a
century or more. The old settlers
were out iu full force and the entire
auditorium was filled with men and
women whose frosty brows bore the
touch of time Upon the Stage was
ex-Go ve mors Robert W. Furnas,
and James W. Dawes, and Judge M.
1. I lay ward, of Nebraska City; If on
T. M. Marquette, of Lincoln; Hon.
W. F. Norris of Norfolk; Mr. Mad.
don of Fall City, the latter beinir
the oldest living pioneer of the state
and Mayor Weir.
Hack of the speakers were massed
the Lincoln festival chorus of MX)
voices. The exercises of the eve
oing opened with a magnificent
rendition of "The Heavens Are
Telling," from Hadyu's "Messiah."
Short addresses were made by ex
Governor Furnas. ex-Governor
Dawes, Judge Marquette and
Judge Hayward, and the final ora
tion of the evening was delivered b'
Hon. W. F. Norris of Ponca, who
poke on "Nebraska as a State
Judge Norris' address was a fitting
close to the exercises of the eve
ning. It was a masterly effort and
seldom has the grand state of
Nebraska been so eloquently de
scribed. The speaker touched up
on the wonderful fertility of eoil,
the marvelous development of agri
cultural resources and the magnifi
cent future of the state. "Nebraska,"
lie said,4'is the great home state of
the Union, the highest dignity and
honor which any state can attain.

Judge Norris' address closed the
exercises at the Lansing opera
house, the last word not bei no-
spoken until after 11 o'clock.

The county clerks resumed their
session yesterday morning at 10:30

of Nebraska, believing that by a
united and vigorous effort, legisla
tion maj be effected that will inure

piration of office, and defines the
association's officers.

Mr. White, of the Prick and Terra

ply 125 cars of brick for the new
government building in Oma

every day until the 125 cars are de
livered. This speaks well for one of
Plastsmouth's industries and shows
that the brick made here is of the
first class.
Chief of Police Tom Fry informed
a Herali reporter that he took the
men sentenced by Judge Archer
to work out their fines on the street

is cutting. Eight street to work, but
after he had taken them up there he
had to bring them back on account
of not having any shovels for them
to work with.
We knew Editor Polk of the Platts

A large sized smile stole over the
countenance of the public last eve
ning on reading "Current Com
ments" in the Evening News, Editor
Polk's Daoer. It annears KcKinr
Sherman has started out on a tour
of the county, probably collecting
from his democratic subscribers,
who take their democracj- "without
money and without price," and the
News grows humorous over it in its
usual placid style when its polit
ical editor descends to humor. But
the richness of the joke comes in
when it is understood that the
News concern, with its paucity of
subscribers, readers and sup
porters, is starting the great and
onlj reliable political editor out on
a iour 01 Lass county to beat up
subscribers for the News. When
that missionary of morals and
veracity gets home, the one sub
scriber which Brother Sherman
caught will be just about one
hundred per cent in advance of the
support the "slick" editor of the
News will bring in. Polk poking
fun at Sherman is enough to give
the horses of all Cass the lockjaw.
One blessing, however, arises from
the pilgrimage of the editor and
proprietor (?) of the News, and that

the season she engaged a small
doll of the soubrette order, rather
small for the part, but the best
available doll talent at liberty.
She was named "Lady Washing
ton," in honor of the city where she
made her first appearance. She ap
peared with Miss Heath until the
company reached San Francisco.
The fatigue and wear were telling
on her delicate constitution, so
Miss Heath engaged an ingenue
doll, who made her appearance at a
children's matinee under the name
of "Lady Francisco."
Like everything else in San Fran
cisco, she was beautiful; a perfect
blonde, tall and graceful, with love
ly blue eyes. She could use her
head and arms with artistic effect,
and made a most pronounced hit.
A great rivalry sprung up be
tween "Lady Washington" and
"Lady Francisco," and Miss Heath
had to relegate "Lady Washington"
to the position of understudy,
which so grieved her sensitive, ar
tistic nature that she threw herself
under a falling trunk and was
crushed to death.
"Lady Francisco," having the
field to herself, was more charm inV
than ever. She made herself a fav
orite with the company, and shared
the applause with Miss Heath. She
stood the long, tedious journeys
very well until she reached the
Northern Pacific railroad; then she
became rheumatic. Her neck and
arms grew stiff, and she failed fast,
until at last she could not appear
on the stage, and finally poor "Lady
Francisco" met her death in a Taylor
theatrical trunk at Helena, Montana.
