This work is part of the general plan of im- h vw.hu.iiU nnilet'l aken hv this i road, which was outlined in the Journal some time since, and will place their properly all along the Nebraska lines in good condition and will prove a great comfort to the traveling public . . . The depot here is to be painted I all over, the interior varnished and tin; entire structure overhaul , rwl !iml cleaned and made one or the neatest passenger stations in this narto f the state. In addition to the painting of the station the comnanv will install electric litrhts to renlaeo the old out-or (late nil lamps which, will make a big hit with those traveling over i this road, as the light furnished in the depot has been miserable in the past and Agent Norton is to be congratulated on having se- fiir-od ttiis imnrovement in the comfort of the depot. The railroad company has been debating Ihe iiueslion of moving i the depot, further east, but then li:w been some doubt as to whether or not they could do this without having to take up part of Hies treel, hut whether I hey are able to do this or not, Ihe new improvements made at the present lime will he greatly appreciated, not only by tin; patrons of the road, but the cilizentf in general, as it will add very much to the ap pearance of I hat portion of the city, and when the contemplated changes in the Murlinglon station are made Plat I smoul h can boast of two very handsome and modern depots, which will make gateways I to Ihe city of which we need n t I be ashamed.

William Sayles was killed at his farm, south of this city, about a year ago, by Henry lUir- rows, who is serving a life sen tence in the nen it ent iarv for the crime. It took seven years for George liroadhurst to construct "Bought and Paid For," after the main un derlying idea of the play, which has run a year at William A. Hrady's Playhouse, had taken root in his mind. "Hought and Paid For" will be the attraction at the Parmele theater next Saturday night. A very vital part of the play is founded on fact. A woman, the most brilliant and accomplished woman the author ever knew, re lated to him the incident which he afterward turned into the kernel of "Hought and Paid For." The story was introduced in il lustration of her theory that un happy marriages most often r suited from the fact that in court ship both parties in interest r veal only one side of I heir natures, concealing the other phases unti ttiev come to the surface in tin day-to-day intimacy which fid lows the wedding. A young girl, who was just out of a convent, met a tine, dashing fellow in her native city, who was a periodical drunkard. When in toxicated he was a beast. His parents concealed the fact in the blind hope that through his love for this girl he might be induced to reform. She married him, and in three weeks' lime he came ionic drunk.

Thev admitted thai they had been wrong in a measure, and mi plored her not to precipitate caudal. Thev occupied a great Mansion and begged thai she conn lo live with them. She would have apartments adjoining Ibeir own, and her husband should be quar tered in another and distinct part of Ihe house. She should be pro tected absolutely from contact with him, should not even see him. e voung wife yielded to the ap peal and matters went along upon this basis for some months. One night the husband's par ents went to Ihe opera. The wife was ill and remained secluded en her rooms. The husband came home, brutishly inebriated, and finding himself locked out of his wife's apartment, kicked in Ihe door bv way of asserting his nuptial rights. Next morning she lied from Ihe house. The father and mother sought her out again. "It is hopeless," said the old gentleman, "(let. your divorce. I w ill help you." The distracted girl asked Ihe reason for this abrupt change of front. "We believed there was still a chance for his reforma tion." explained Ihe father. "We know now I hat if is impossible. Yesterday he received a check for the pay-roll of my business em ployes.

The Shrader-Lewis or chestra furnished some very pleasing musical selections dur ing the course of the evening, as welLas a iiuartet composed of Misses Mabel Shrader, Mae Lewis, Wayne and Lloyd Lewis, which sang several numbers that were highly appreciated by the merry crowd. As a titling climax to the en joyment of Ihe evening a most de licious four-course luncheon was served lo the iruests. which, if it were possible, added to the already delightful evening.

Britlain had a very close call last evening from asphyxalion from the gas escap ing from a base burner in their home. The family had retired lo bed and when Mr. Hriltain return ed home from the fire meeting he was greatly alarmed at the- amount of gas in the room and at once aroused the family, who were in a very stupifled condition, and opened the doors and windows, letting the gas escape. Mrs. llrit tain is still feeling quite sick from the effects of the gas and had Mr. Hi-it lain been an hour later in returning there is no loubl that some of Ihe family would have expenenceu ven serious results from the gas. fit regulating the.stove for the night some of the drafts had been left opi-n, causing the gas to escape into Ihe room, with the results as noted above.
