The costumes of many of tho parti
cipants woro very unique, and in one
case tho judgeB, Messrs. Joe Klein,
liaxtor Smith, Ed Fitzgerald and
II. N. Dovey, were unable to tell
whether the participant was a male
or fomalo. One ol tho merry masquor
adors was dressed to represent an old
colored woman, and so successfully
was the p irt carried out that the
judges were compelled to take the "old
lady" into an adjoinin g room for closer
inspection. Some say they tested
"her" love-making qualities, but this
proved of no avail, and it is but pro
per to say that tho only thing which
prevented this character from receiv
ing first prize wasowing to tho judges
inability to decide as to what sex
"she" belonged. However, after the
masks were taken oU all was made
clear, and tho "old lady" proved to be
a young gentleman named Stull.
In all there were four prizes
awarded two ladies' and two. gents'.

An Unfortunate Accident.
Ed Brantner met with an accident

some time. Mr. Brantner
visit.ine the family of his
law and while onnis way home he ac
cidently slipped and fell, owing to the
slippery conditiou of tho streets, and
broke a bone and seriously lacerated
the muscles of his right leg. At last
accounts Mr. Brantner's condition was
improving as nicely as could be ex
pected under the circumstances.
'How to lit) Happy."
The Methodist church last evening
contained one of the largest crowds
which has ever been in attendance at
that place of worship at one time.
The subject of the evening was "How
to Be Happy." Rev. H. A. Lemon
delivered the discourse in his eloquent
and convincing way, outlining to the
multitude the only proper way to be
thoroughly happy. His remarks were
very interesting, as shown by the
marked attention of the large assem
bly. There was one conversion to the
church. The solo by Professor Travis
entitled "My Mother's Hand," de
serves much praise and was highly
Tho Christian revival meetings will
contiaue at the Methodist church this

believe the services will be as largely
attended as those of last week. To

have prodigal sons that they are pray

A Rare Musical Treat.
The concert at the Presbyterian
church on the evening of February 17,
will be an opportunity for the people
of this city to hear some of the best
musical talent in the state. Prof.
Don Long appeared here about two
years ago with Hans Albert, the noted
violinist, and those who heard him
then were delighted with his fine, ar
tistic work as a pianist. He needs no
recommendation to the people of this
city, and, in fact, everywhere he has
performed his sympathetic playing
and remarkable power of expression
has won for him a warm place in the
hearts of all lovers of music.
Mr. Manchester is a vocalist of re
markable ability. He is the possessor
of an excellent bass voice, and is
capable of putting much feeling and
expression into his work. He is with
out doubt one of Omaha's best
In Omaha niu-ncal circles. Miss
Sadie Bowen is a favorite. She has a
deep contralto voice of rare sweetness.
Her self control is remarkable, and
the ease with which she executes me
most difficult compositions makes a
lasting impression on her audience.
Miss Mayme Sullivan of this city is
well and favorably known to our
people. She is making music a spec
ialty, and is now pursuing her third
term of instruction under Mrs. Cotton
of Omaha. She has appeared on num
erous occasions here, and alway3 ac
quitted herself to the entire satisfac
tion of her many friends.
Kobbery at Ashland.
Last ni?ht thieves broke into the
general merchandise store by W. P.
Snell at Ashland, and carried off a

clothing. As yet, the officers have
obtained no clue to the robbers.
Christian Church. Revival.
The Christian church revival meet
ings continue at the M. E. church and
interest strengthens as the work goes
on. II. A. Lemon of Lincoln, the
noted evangelist, and Elder Dungan
of tnis city are preaching eloquent
sermons. They are assisted by Pro
fessor Travis, the well-known soloist
whom it is a treat to hear. Don't fail
to come out to the M. E. church to
night and hear them. Subject tonight,

A Taste of War.
Grim visaged war is lightly spoken
of sometimes, but when engaged in
actual battle as Hugo Roberts was
last night, the subject is viewed in a
new lioht. Tho trouble was caused by
Roberts shooting an ugly dog belong
ing to John Harrington, which was in
tho habit of running out in the road
and chasing pcdec-trians and vehicles.
Roberts shot tho dog some days ago,
and the owner felt almost as if a mem
ber of the family had been killed and
he concluded to evou the score by giv
ing the young man a drubbing. Last
evening they met in the road south of
town, and, Roberts says, without pre
liminary talk Harrington gave him a
lick on the head which sent him to
grass. This was followed up with sev
eral other blows, and Roberts today
looks to have been roughly used.
A warrant was sworn out for Har
rington's arrtst and placed in the
hands of the sheriff. He was brought
in and gave bonn in the sum of $2JU
far his appearance a week later.
Last of the Series.
Last evening the evangelistic ser
vices at the Presbyterian church were
closed. Rev. Mr. Tonge's discourse
on the subject, "Almost I But Lost,"
was a grand effort to show the danger
of falling short of entire persuasion to
be a Christian.
Agrippa was almost persuaded, but,
stilling his convictions, he suffered
his opportunity to pass. He was not
persuaded. Many who have attended
these meetings have been almost per
suaded, and it is the prayer of God's
people that these may not let pass the
opportunity to become fully persuaded
as to their duty. While some were
almost persuaded, others were fully
persuaded as to their duy, and cast
their lot with the people of God.
These meetings have been a great
blessing to the church, and the effects
will be lasting
The Presbyterian church is very
grateful to the editors of The News
and Journal onitheir liberal contribu
tion to the success of these meetings
in opening their columns for the pub
lication of notices, information, etc
