label scratched off.
He was twenty one years old the

proves that the theatre going public

support a company of merit.
Mr. Grew has selected for his re
turn engagement one of New York's
latest successes, the delightful pastoral
"Just Plain Folks". The play contains
many delightful comedy situations
that are out of the ordinary, and
tells one of the sweetest love stories

to life and the scenes move along
with the ease and naturalness that
holds the heart interest to the end.

Mr. Grew has a part out of the or
dinary, and liis portrayal of this
interesting character will long be
remembered. Lloyd Ingraham, Anna
Cleveland, Taylor Bennett, Maud
Monroe, and the balance of the com
pany are all well cast. .
Mr. Grew has spared no pains or
expense to nuke the production com
plete in every detail. "Just Plain

not the case. The picture show will
continue as long as the patronage
will warrant it and the management
will continue to show the very best
films obtainable. The price will
remain the same 5 and 10 cents.

street between Third and Fourth

ting gaily along, this morning, when
he encountered a hard gust of wind
which whisked off his fedora. The

farmer had his prow pointed. He
circled his team as quickly as he could
and put whip to his steeds and chased

overtaking it. One needs a string
under his chin with each end attached
to his hat to be sure of having it with
mm inese days.

A representative of tho Daily News
had the pleasure of meeting ex
Govcrnor Gcorgo L. Sheldon at
Nebraska City last Sunday morning as
he was returning from his cotton
plantation in Mississippi to his home
at Nehawka.
The governor did not have1 very
much to give out regarding his action
ii the matter of becoming a candidate
for governor or for the senate, and
felt that his long absence from the
state and unfanuliarity with the
political conditions would not warrant
him in making a statement. When
he had had time to look the situation
over he will be better able to juduc
of the matter.
While talkine with tho eovemor
coming up on the train. Col. Will
Hayward appeared on the scene and

his caster into the congressional ring
and while he hopes to land the nomina
tion, recognizes the fact that he is
up against some good men.
