The vaudeville production promises to
be one of the most finished entertain
ments ever presented here, combining,
as it does, the experience of profession
al stage life with the best local talent.
Rehearsals for the production are now
in progress. The obtaining of the sketch.
"A Repular Fix" is considered quite a
feat on account of the fact that the
Keith forces are now warring with the
Klaw & Erlanger or "trust" attractions
for the vaudeville supremacy in the
east. Next Thursday's entertainment
was termed "advanced" as a concilia
tion to Klaw & Erlanger, who have
adopted this slogan.
ED A HOME
A Matter Which Has Hung Fire
For Some Time
A case which has been hanpinfj lire
for a lonjr time was partially disposed
of today when Mrs. E. P. Quivey. Mat
ron of the Nebraska Children's Home,
took Una. Ora and Orville Stull. three
iliijrimate children of Lou Taylor andC.
Lawrence Stull. to the home provided
nr.d authorized by the state for those
who have no homes or whose home sur
roundinirs were such as would not tend
to make worthy citizens of them.
This case was beprun w hen Mrs. T. (I.
Allen made complaint on the 14th of
December. l.HC. in the county court.
ar.d where a decree was rendered on the j
ISth of the same month that the prayer
of the complainant be granted; that a
competent 'guardian be appointed, and
recommending the Nebraska Children's
Home as that guardian. This was ap
pealed to the district court by the de
fendant. Lou Taylor, and a bond furn
ished by C. L. Stull in the sum of one
thousand dollars. This appeal was not
perfected in the time allowed and was
remanded back to the court of origin for
the execution of the judgment, which
was that the children be placed in the
Home at Omaha.
In the taking of the three children by i
Mrs. Quivey. a partial execution of the
judgment has been enforced. Mrs. Qui
vey will return for the other child, the
e!de.-t child. Ira Stull. who could not be
found today. That the conditions under
which these children have lived goes
without a dispute. All children have by
a right inherent which should not be de
nied them, the opportunity of being sur
rounded during that time, when inno
cency and purity are a child's unques
tioned heritage, with decent influences.

Fell in a Cellar-way
Oscar Hallstrom, who has been work
ing for John Rauer w ith the cleanitiK-uji
force, had a very painful accident today
and one which he will not forget for a
longtime. Passing from the rear of
P.auer's store he went to the rear of
Kunsman & Ramie's meat market, and
runnino; up on the cellar door was look
ing into the window of the back room
w here Iline Rrissey was trimming meat,
and thumped on the ";lass. Mr. Rrissey
saw what danger he was in, for the
floods had broken the hinges, and it
was liable to fall and let him down to the
steps below, called to him to get off or
he would fall throutrh. Oscar turned to
run down and the door slid away from
him precipitating him to the liottom of
the cellar wav where he lit on an old
shovel, cutting his rij?bt arm and ler in
a terrible manner.
He was taken to Dr. Livingston where
the cuts were dressed, the wound in his
arm requiring twelve stitches to close
and the one on his leg, six. He has some
cuts which will require Dame Nature a
w hile to repair.
In the Federal Court
T. H. Pollock, of the Plattsmouth
water company, was a passenger to
Omaha this mornintr where he goes to

federal court, asking for an order com

Frank Adams Tells of Toll
Bridge Across Salt
Frank Adams, a special representative
from Washington, is here looking after
the divorce court records, and is accom
panied by his wife and little daughter,
and are stopping at Hotel Riley. They
were visited last evening by his cousin,
Lee Adams and wife of San Antonio,
who are on their way to their old home
at Osceola, Iowa, where they have not
been for thirty-one years. In 1S7C( he
left that place and went to Texas, pass
ing through here. He was here also six
years before that, making just thirty
seven years ago. At that time he says
there was only one bridge between here
and Lincoln and that was across Salt
Creek. This was a toll bridge and the
parties who were running it had the
floor of the bridge loose, and when a
passenger had crossed the bridge, they
would take up the planks and carry them
off the bridge and pile them on the bank
until the next traveler had paid his toll
before they were put back.
At that time Lincoln had but .rMl in
habitants, and he was present when
Seward was surveyed and laid out, anil
at that, time it had six houses. Mr.
Adams says that he notices much differ
ence in the town and country then and
now. They departed for Osceola this
morning where they will visit for some
weeks before they return to their home
The Dread Disease, Consump
tion, Causes Death of
A Fine Young Man
Charlie Kerr who has been very low
with consumption, at the home of his
mother, Mrs. B. C. Kerr, in this city,
for several months, passed away this
morning about eight o'clock. Charlie
was born in the city of Crete, Nebraska,
on March 4th, 1880, and soon after came
to this place with his parents. He grew
to manhood in this city, and was well
beloved by all. He was a young man of
very pleasing demeanor, and agreeable
manners. After having finished school,
he entered the shops of the railroad
company here, where he worked for a
number of years. His first position be
ing messenger boy, and afterwards
working in the offices of the company
at the store house. Leaving here he
worked for the Union Pacific, at Oma
ha, for two years. From there he went
to Kansaa City, where he worked for a
short time when his health, which was
very robust, failing him he came home,
and afterwards went to Redlands, Cali
fornia, and Yuma, New Mexico, in the
hopes that the change of climate might
benefit his health. But the change
seemed to augment, rather than benefit
his ailment, which was consumption.
Some months ago he returned home and
has been confined to his bed at the home
of his mother.
His relatives and friends hoped against
hope that he would again regain his want
ed health, but he grew worse from day to
day, still clinging on to life. During
the last few weeks he has been very
low, and while the w orst was expected,
still the hope was cherished that he
might eventually get well. In his pass
ing away he goes to join his father,
who preceeded him a few years ago.
There remains of his own immediate
family, his mother, one brother, Mer-
ritt. who has been here since his ser
ious illness, and three sisters, Julia,
Alice and Elizabeth, who have made
their home here. They were all present
at his bed side as he passed to the otner
world. Two aunts living in Indiana have
been telegraphed for, and replies will be
awaited from them before completing
arrangements for the funeral.

Walt Holmes at the Flood
Amoii the Havelock items in the Lin
coln Star of last evening we clip the
following: "C. V. Holmes has just re
turned from Plattsmouth, haviug been
there during the flood of Sunday morn
ing. He says he does not care to see as
much water again for a while and de
clares that he waded water neck deep
trying to get to high ground. "No per
son." said he, "can imagine the real
condition in which the city found itself
a short time after the rain when the
waters rolled down the street in great
volumes. Stores were flooded several
feet and damage amounting to thousands
of dollars was suffered by the mer
chants." J. Stenner and wife were passengers
to Omaha this morning where they have
some business matters to look after.
Cornelius Coffey Died Last
tvening in umana
About eightv vears ago ( V melius
Coffey was born in the county Tipperary,
Ireland. When still a young man he
came to this country, and first landed
in New York City, where be rn:de his
home for a time, later coming t Ne
braska, and about the close of the civil
war, settled in South Bend, this county,
where he was employed as section fore
man for about twelve years, corning to
this city about 1 S7. During his resi
dence here he worked for the Burling
ton railway, most of the time in the
In December 1 1 his wife died at the
age of 72 years, and soon after, Mr.
Coffey with his daughter, Mamie, went
to Texas, where they lived for a short
time with their son and brother, Dan
Cofiey, and after their return made
their home in Omaha, where on the
2th of March last Cornelius Coffey, jr.,
died, and was buried at this place, for
the past months, Mr. CofFey has been
troubled with cancer of the stomach,
and has been very low for a long time,
and last evening at ( o'clock he passed
away after a great amount of suffering.
No positive arrangements have been
made for the funeral as yet. Daniel
has been telegraphed for, and until he
is heard from, no arrangements will be
perfected. Mr. Cofiey leaves of his own
immediate family, one son, Daniel, now
in Texas, and one daughter, Miss Mamie
Cofiey, who was with her father when
he passed away. AliKe Whalen was a
nephew of Mr. Coffey's wife, she was a
sister of his mother.
You Know How It Is Yourself
Last Saturday for a few minutes the
flood gates of heaven appeared to open.
It seemed as if the elements opened up
and the bottom dropped out. It didn't
rain long, and if it hail the Herald force
would be pumping water out of a base
ment and polishing up machienery in
stead of printing a paper. It required
some quick work baling to keep the
water out. We have called attention to
the inadequacy of the tiling under the
cement crossings to carry of the water,
and on all four corners of the street this
was noticable. The street commissioner
could remedy this some by the proper
kind of work, and our dreams would be
more comfortable on rainy days. - Weep
ing Water Herald.
IN THE STATE
The Outlook Not So Bad, Con
Recent heavy rains in Nebraska mat
erially damaged wheat in stock in
bottom lands over the state, but this
condition is not general, and crop experts
local grain and elevator men, and farm
ers still maintain that the crop this sea
son will be an average one. Corn and
oats were not injured by the heavy pre
cipitation; in fact the rains were needed
to prevent impairment of the crops.
The wheat harvest is nearing a close,
and it is predicted that within a week
practically all of the crop will have been
cut. Farmers were delayed in certain
sections of the state by the unseason
able weather, but tlie only real delay in
harvesting operations was where the
scarcity of farm hands was felt. Less
men are available this year than last,
but there are many reasons for the
stringency. Wages offered are not as
high as last year, considering the de
mand for labor but this is not the real
reason for the scarcity. The men are
lazy, says the Lincoln News. Practi
cally all over the state corn cultivation i
is completed, and the crop "laid by" in
clean condition. It has yet to go through j
the most trying time of the year but !
July thus far has given promise that the j
summer is not to be a dry one. j
After all the reports of deficient stand,
poor growth, green bug damage and
other troubles that beset the oats earlier
in the season, it is coming to maturity
with a promise of a yield that will easily
equal last year. The area is not materi
ally different from that of last season
but there doubtless would have heen an
increase had- the difficulties encountered
in getting the crop planted proved a de
triment. The excellent growing weather
has hastened the crop along at a rapid
rate, and the prospects are certainly en-
I cou raging.
Much Water in River
The river is higher than for many a
moon with prospects still of going up
more. The water has backed into the
mouth of the sewer so that it very near
ly fills it half full. This no doubt is ac
countable for a part of of the trouble
which is experienced in the sewers tak
ing care of the water when the severe

Havelock. Mrs. Davis has invited all
of the former members to meet at her
home to a luncheon, at high noon, which
will be followed during the afternoon
by reminiscences of former days of an
unusual and interesting nature.
