' The Missouri I'acilic Itailroad
j company this morning' began the
I work of painting I heir passenger
I station in this city, as well as the
hviiitrlii liniise ami I In residence
of the section foreman. This work
is part of the general plan of im-
h 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

not only by tin; patrons of the

changes in the Murlinglon station
are made Plat I smoul h can boast
of two very handsome and modern

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. The bride ne.xer had

Thev admitted thai they had

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

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.

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
