Special Meeting of the Council.
At last night's special meeting of
the city council the proposition to
lease the gas and electric light plant
was agreed to almost unanimously, the
only vote recorded in the negative was
that of Mr. Heisel. The News be
lieves the council acted wisely in the
matter and that with the immediate
adoption of the moonlight schedule
the city will be enabled to operate the
plant at a neat profit over and above
the fixed charges. The $250 per
month which the tax-payers are
called upon to pay will be paid from
the profits of the plant to the great re
lief of the treasury. We believe the
council showed wisdom in making the
deal, although two or three business
men thought otherwise. We feel cer
tain that future events will fully show
the good business judgment of the
council and that their opinion of the
proposition will be fully shared by the

Very pretty as girls, and lome of them

Hamlin Garland in Ladies' T 1 ce Jour

three or four, cooking, whitewashing,
weaving or painting pottery. They seem
to have a good deal to chatter about,
and their smiling faces are very agree

teeth. Their ceremonial dresa is very
picturesque, especially the costume of
the Aooma and Isleta girls. All burdens
are carried by the women of Acoma,
Isleta and Laguna npon the head, and
they have, in consequence, a magnifi

women of Walpi, on the contrary, are
bent and down looking. They carry
their burdens on their backs slung in a
blanket. The girls of Isleta wear a light
cloth over their heads, Spanish fashion,
and manage it with fine grace and co
quetry. "The everyday dress of the Hopi
women consists of a sort of kilt, which
is wrapped around the hips and f astened
with a belt, a modification of the blan
ket or wolf skin. Above this a sort of
sleeveless chemise partly covers the
bosom. Their hair is carefully tended,
but is worn in an ungraceful mode by
some of the women. The women of
llano cut the hair in front square across
about to the line of the lips, while the
back hair is gathered into a sort of
billet. The front hair hangs down over
the faces, often concealing one eye. The
unmarried women in Walpi wear their
hair in a strange way. They coil it into

youth and promise by imitating tbe

A CURIOUS OLD LADY.
Parsimonious In Her Own Affairs, Tet Lav

When Henri Rochefort planned the
erection of a workman's glass works at
Carmaux to help the glass workers, he
received an anonymous gift of 100,000
francs. The donor was Mine. Dimbourg,
who has since died at Boulogne, aged
72. She was a curious old lady, wildly
generous, yet careful to miserliness,
sending her gift to the glass works
anonymously and then complaining
when her name was omitted from the
Etone bearing a list of subscribers. She
lived in an unpretentious house, fur
nished in the plainest fashion, hoarded
np every scrap or paper and bit of rag
she found, yet helped all whose want
came to her ears. She sent 1,000 francs
here, 3,000 there, while her own serv
ants could scarcely get enough to eat,
and their wages were extremely small
The money for the glass works was sent
in a small linen bag. comparatively
worthless, which no one thought of re
turning to her.
She sent a servant to claim it, how
ever, and was greatly annoyed that it
had not been sent back. She was very
fond of cats, but even the food of her
pets was measured out with a niggardly
hand, and the youngest kitten had its
milk in the cover of a pomade pot that
it might not drink too much. During
her last illness she scolded the nurse for
rinsing a glass with filtered water.
"Filtered water wears out the filter.
You must be more economical. " Yet

A Crocodile One Hundred Feet Ixtng.
it is a well known fact, even among
those who make no pretenso of having
their heads stored with geological and
polemtological lore, that the beasts and
reptijes which existed in the early ages
of the world were giants when com
pared with the very largest representa
tives of the same, types which still sur
vive. This fact has recently been strik
ingly illustrated by a find made at
Poitiers, where excavations are being
made under the auspices of the Oriental
Academy of Science. At that place a
crocodile tooth was found which weighs
almost seven pounds. M. Gerard, the
professor in charge of the working
corps, says that there is no doubt that
the tooth formerly belonged to a gigan
tic crocodile, and that there is no possi
bility whatever that he has confounded
the tooth with that of the megalvasau
rns, as some scientists have hinted.
M. Gerard says: "It is a typical croc
odile tooth and in probably the largest
specimen of the kind ever seen by man.
In my estimation it is frcm the head of
a reptile not less than 100 feet in
length." St. Louis Republic.

The riatte Bridge.
To the Editor of The News:
Cedar Ckeek, Neb., Oct. 19. In
last week's issue of the Plattsmouth
Journal 1 noticed an account of tbe
county commissioners granting a right
to the people of Eight Mile Grove pre
cinct to vote on a proposition to issue
$4,000 to aid in the construction of a
free wagon bridge across the Platte
river at this point. It further states
that it was granted upon condition
that the signers thereto agreed
to pay all expenses above the
$4,000, which the tax payers of Eight
Mile Grove precinct will pay, provided
the proposition carries at the election,
In justice to the signers of said pe
tition allow me to say that the election
was granted upon no such condition,
The election was granted as the pe
tition read, with no amendments. It
reads "That unless a sufficient sum to
complete the bridge is raised by some
other means than taxing the people of
this precinct the bonds will not be
Whether the Journal was misin
formed or did this to help defeat the
bonds we cannot sav, but it seems as
though all sore politicians wore op
posed to granting election. This is
not a question of politics, but one that
will decide whether the people of this
precint will bow to the will of one man
or will the eo to the polls on Novem
ber 3 and vote for their own interests.
Since the special election which was
held in July several have said they
were in favor of the bridge at that
time,. but were afraid to vote for it, as
sooner or later those opposed to it
would find it out. And yet wo call
this a free country ! Those opposing
the bridge aro doing all in their
power to prevent its being built, yet
they will tell those that are support
ing it that they also are in favor of
the bridge ana will support it at the
election. They aro opposed to the
bridge and ashamed to admit it. We
are in favor of the bridge and are
proud of it. Yours truly,
COLLEGE HILL NOTES.
The dedication of the German
Lutheran church, westof College Hill,
one of the finest churches in the state,
took place Sunday last in the presence
of a very large concourse of members'
of the church and outsiders. Fare
well services were' held at the old
church at 10 o'clock a. m. After that
all marched to the new church. The
doors were closed, but Henry Lehnhof,
as one of the trustees, handed the key
to the pastor, saying: "In the name
of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I
deliver the key of this church to you."
After more remarks by the pastor, the
door was unlocked and all invited to
enter. The morning services then
began. In the afternoon services were
held and also ia the evening preach
ing in English.
I will and must stale that it is
hardly possible to describe the beauti
ful building inside and outside. It
must be seen to be appreciated. Great
credit is due to Itev. Younpfor his un
tiring efforts to bring forward this
fine structure, dedicated to the service
of God. To the members of the church
lean say, well done, good and faithful
servants. To build such a structure in
such hard times as we have experi
enced this last year seems almost an
impossibility. But there was a will
to do it and it was done God bless
you all. The church was beautifully
decorated by the ladies. To close I
will say: The chui'ch is comparatively
free from debt and is a credit not
only to the members of the congre
gation but to the whole neighbor-
hood,nnd we all take pride in showing
the beautiful church to our visiting
