Postmaster II. A. Sctneider re
ceived a letter from the department
at Washington relative to the condi
tion of the city's sidewalks and num
bers on the houses and other mat
ter's pertaining to the free delivery
proposition. The government will
not grant free delivery to a city un
til its walks are in condition to ac
commodate the mail carriers. While
the walks on the main thoroughfares
are in reasonably good condition, yet
the cross walks are not, and those
places w here the w alks are dangerous
and where there are no walks wtll
not have their mail delivered, as the
carriers will not bo required to either
risk, their lives or walk in the mud
(if we have any.)
It would be well for citizens and
officials to get to work in earnest and
put in the cross walks so that our
city may be In the rank where it be
longs. Some of the outlying streets
are overgrown with weeds, and the
walks with missing boards and rot

spent in this popular card game and
which created considerable entertain
ment for the guests. During the af
ternoon and at an appropriate hour

which was very much appreciate.

things the thoughtful hostesses had

Minor, Helen Clark, Mary Hungate of
Weeping Water; Mesdames Ralph
Towle of South Omaha, George Fal

Loses Valuuhle Jewelry.
Chief of Police Ben Rainey re
turned from Omaha last evening,
w here he had been in quest of some
valuable jewelry which had been stol
en from the trunk of G. B. Gould who
I makes his home in this city. The
valuables taken consisted of a $250
ring with rub settings, a ladles gold
bracelet and watch. The thief made
off with the goods, leaving no trace
of the culprit and Chief Rainey
thought he might get some clew in
the pawn shops of the metropolis.
Nothing developed which would lead
to a clew. Mrs. Gould Is in the hos
pital at Lincoln, and the loss of the
valuables wil be quite keenly felt
by Mr. and Mrs. Gould.
