VERY SUCCESSFUL PLAY
'Her Majesty's Guardsmen" At

drew a ve.y large and representative
audience. Every one went prepared
for a eood entertainment ana were
not disappointed. The play abounded
in realistic stage pictures and the
parts were well taken. Mr. Willard
was, of course, the star, around which
the lesser lights revolved his versa
tile talents being well displayed in the
character of a military swell, which
he assumed. Lee Atwood, a fellow
Guardsman, made an excellent lover
as well as soldier, and Demmie Hiatt,
as a curate, made a tremendous hit
his clerical costume suiting his style
of beauty to perfection, and his acting
was Inimitable. Mr. Cool Idee acted
the part of the heavy father and Mr
Magowan was a typical stage uncle.
both of them being irreeiatably funny
and not all amateurish. The four la
dies. Mies Dovey. Miss Hopping. Mies
Clark and Miss Kauble made up
quartet of youth and beauty seldom
seen on the stage. Their acting was
far above the average their aiora
tion of the military gentlemen, and
their final surrender; the fetching
costume of Miss Hopping and the fin
ished acting of Miss Dovey were all
pleasing factors that went to make up
the tout ensemble of this excellent
farce comedy. The open air concert
of the B. Cc M. band just before the
doors opened was an enjoyable feature,
as was the piano playing of Miss Cle
ome Thomas, which helped fill up the
waits between acts.
The play will be presented agaiu
this evening, and should bring out a
still larger audience than last evening
the object for which the play is given
being so popular, combined with the
fact that an evening's enjoyment is as
sured, will undoubtedly fill the opera
house to its utmost capacity.

The board of education met in reg

The old board decided to postpone
action upon the petition of the real
dent9 of Mercervllle, relative to the
closing of the Mercerville school and
the transportation of the pupils to the
central building, until the meeting in
June, so that they might determine
whether it would bo possible to nave a
teacher by the change, Mr. Hilton,
representing the petitioners, laid the
matter clearly before the board and
stated that he thought that if the
board of education could save a teacher
and the expense of fuel and jtnltor
that they could afford to transport the
pupils as desired.
The board decided to test the roll
ing partitions in the new high school
building next Thursday morning as to
the question of their being sound
proof, by having some classes recite
there. These partitions were sold
with the understanding that they
were to be sound proof and were so
represented by the agent. It would
seem that they are not as represented,
and, after the test Thursday morning.
if found unsuitable the board will re
turn them and refuse to accept them
In that case the dedicatory exercises
will be indefinitely postponed and per
manent lath and plaster partitions will
be immediately erected. The board
considers that the large assembly

exercises as will be given.

A Lincoln Car-Inspector Meets
"With a Sad Death.
Had Evidently Been Struc t While Walk
ing Along On Top of a Refrigerator
Car Body Found In the Tarda at
Pacific Janet Ion at An Early Honr
. About 5 o'clock this morning the en
gineer of a switch engine in the yards
at Pacific Junction noticed the body of
a man lying on top of an empty re
frigerator car. He reported the mat
ter to Agent Dyke, and upon examina
tion it developed that the man was
Paul Kovalter, a car inspector in the
yards at Lincoln, and from all appear
ances he had been killed by lightning
Ti a rm lvincr face downward on the
running board of the car, and in one
hand he still grasped a small steel bar
A lantern was also lying by his side,
partially covered by a gum coat which
the dead man wore.
Shortly before 10 o'clock last night,
after the "California orange" train
had pulled out of the Lincoln yards, a
hat was found by one of the yard men
It was recogn'zed as the one worn by
Kovalter, the car inspector, but
thorough search failed to locate the
owner. A message of inquiry was for
warded to the conductor of the
"orange" train.but be could not throw
any light upon the mystery. The train
pulled into PaciCc Junction about 1 a.
m. and stopped to set out a few emp
ties. In the meantime Agent Dyke
hp.d been wired to make a thorough in
spection of the train. The search,how
ever, proved fruitless, as nothing was
found on the wheels to indicate that
the man had boon run over.
It being dark at the time and the
weather stormy, no one looked on top
of the cars, where he was found early
in the morning.
The mayor of the Junction and sev
eral othar officials wero immediately
notified, and, after making mental cal
culations of the surroundings and the
position in which the man was lying,
the remain? wero removed to tho yard
house to await tho arrival of the cor
oner frcm Hasting, la. There is no
doubt but that Kovalter was struck by
a bolt of lightning', as the hair on tho
eyebrows and one bide of tho bead
were singed, while a black 6treak was
found on his face and neck. Over
the front of his body, and extending
to tho tops of his rubber boot?, the
ficsh was literally cooked. As rubber
is considered a non-conductor, it is
thought the bolt was confined to the
boay of the unfortunate man at least
no mark was made on the car.
A coroner's jury was impaneled, but
upon request of Superintendent Big-
nell of the Burlington, an inquest will
not be held until a brother of the dt-

Kosa Kaaen lias a Weakness for Run
ning Away From Ilonip.
Rosa, the ivelve-y ear-old daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Rauen, takes a
notion to run away from home quite
frequently. Sunday night she called
at the home of Oliver Gilson, in the
Fourth ward, and told a rather sad
little tale of woe, 6tating, among other
things, that her father was at Kearney
visiting a brother in the reform school,
while her mother had gone to Omaha
and left her to shift for herself. She
told the story in such a straightfor
ward, innocent manner that even tho
most heartless person could not have
turned her away. The folks at the
Gilson home invited her in, gavo her
something to eat and as much as pos
sible made her feel comfortable.
Yesterday morning Mr. Gilson went
over to the girl's home to find out, if
possible, the facts 'in the caso. He
found, to his surprise, that Mrs. liauen
was homo and had not gone to Omaha
It developed that tho girl had merely
taken advantage of her father's ab
sense to run away from home. Whilo
liosa has again taken up her abode
under the parental roof, there is no
ttlling when she will take another no
tion to change her headquarters.

An indication that the Plattsmouth
Telephono company means business is
shown by the fact that its lines are be

The following dieoa'ch from Klm-

nal: The heaviest rain known in years
visited this vicinity from 8 to 10 o'c'ock
Sunday evening. The rain camo down
in perfect torrents, almost resembling
a cloud burst, and in a short time the
small creeks were overflowing their
banks and much damage was done by
washing. Section Foreman lien Boyee
and a crew of three men of the Mis
fouti Pac Gi, got on a hand car and
went ahead of the pssenger train,
which is duo here about 10:30, as far as
Weeping Water. About two miles
down the track the hand car ran into
aDileofdrift and rubbish The car
jumped the track, but fortunately no
one was injured. It took the men some
time t j clear the track, as the rubbish
was about three feet deep for a distance
of a quarter of a mile, and had tho
passenger run into this there would
have been a terrible accident. There
were several other dangerous places
between here and Weeping Water.
but the train reached there only an
hour late. Reports from the country
are that a great deal of the listed corn
has been washed out. A severe elec
trical storm accompanied the rain, but
