Arrangements are now being com

ers aeretd to tfive a benefit to the
actors' fund of New York. On account
of the heat it whs feared the attend

was about to be given up, when it
dawned on them that this objection
could be overcome by giving it out of
doors and selecting a play suitable to
Shakespeare's beautiful comedy.
"As You Like It," was finally con
sidered the most fitting bill, aud was
produced on Staten Island in the pres
ence of more than 2,000 spectators.
This performance has been followed
by many more of a like character

Two reasons why the democrats
wanted the office of -oroiior:
First They were afraid that if the

sit on the corpse of tho democratic
Second The "pops" got treasurer
which is tho head of the ticket and
coronor which is the tail of tho ticket,
and it would look as though tho demo
cratswho got about all that goes be
tween these two offices, were swal
lowed. Hence they wished the tail of
tho ticket, so as to have a convenient
hole to crawl out of.

ABOCT TUE FLAG.
To the Editor of The News:
Will you kindly permit me to reply
to the article signed "C. S." in last
night's issue of The News, regarding
the old flag of Company A, First Ne
braska Volunteer. It implies a doubt
of .riffht to keep it in my posession. It
has been in our family since the close
of the war, having been presented to
my husband by those in authority for
saving it from the euemy, and carry
ing it during the rest of the battle
after the color bearer had been 6hot
down. When the regiment was mus
tered out, the flag was given to Mr.
Weils, as being the 1 ist color bearer.
and there has never been a doubt
raised as to our right to keep it.
When I can think that the public has
a better right to the old flag than I
have, I shall undoubtedly put it in
the rausoum, but until then I think I
have a perfect right to keep it in my
own possession and consider it a sa
cred relic which 'my late husband
prized too highly to place in the
hands of the public Very Respect
fully, Mrs. Wm. L. Wells.
The Shell Game.
The oldtime worn shell game,
which always goes with a circus, was
on in all its glory today,to the sorrow
of several farmers who ran against it.
Most of them' refused, to tell their
names, after they were bitten, but we
learn that a man named Carroll lost
$5, a Mr. Bates $20, while Wm. Fer
guson lost $5 and a gold watch. The
rumor that Amos Burtnott - had lost
$40 is denied.
Several others wore touched, and
the sheriff was kept busy trying to
keep people from losing their money.
