Councilman Lushiiiwky desired to have the city attorney and clerk get into touch with the bond-holders of the city and try and make arrangements whereby the city could pay off more than two of the bonds in a year, as the fund was in excellent shape to handle more than two bonds a year, which would soon reduce the city's indebtedness. Councilman Ilichey brought up (he question of the sewer exten sion on upper Chicago uvenue, slating that the bid of Mart Shel don had been found good and that the cnunly would give $500 to ward I he work, and if the city would contribute $500, lie and John llauer would pay any ex cess over this sum to have the work put through. He stated it would be necessary tn fix up the bridge on Marble street, as well as do some grading near the Moore place, and it would only cost about $375 to secure the sewer for the city. This motion to accept the bid and start the work was seconded by Patterson. Mayor Saltier opposed the proposition on the ground that the city would not be benefited by the sewer to any great extent, as it was through private property, and he thought the city should devole some attention to the Washington avenue sewer, fixing one block on each sewer every year. He also thought the proper way to do would be to start at the mouth of the sewer and build out. There was much discussion of the matter, participated in by Councilmen Johnson, Halls! Tom and Lushinsky, and Hie motion of Ilichey was defeated by the fol lowing vole: Yeas, Patterson, Richey, llallslrom, Vroman; nays, Slreighl, Lushinsky, Johnson, Hajeck; passed, Shea. -The mayor voted no, as the vote was a tie.

Omaha, : Neb. Mrs. Waterman Gave Ex-Governor Sheldon and Ex-Congressman Pollard First Instructions. The Journal ollice acknow ledges a very pleasant, visit last Saturday from Mrs. Hella R. Wa terman of Hay Springs, Neb., ac companied by her brother, Judge Hasil S. Ramsey. Mrs. Waterman isa pioneer settler of Nebraska, having llrst located at Rock Bluffs in the spring of 1871, where, for a number of years, she was en gaged in school work, assisting her brother, where she did suc cessful work. She was for a number of years engaged in teaching in Cass county,. Neb., the last term being at Nehawka during the winter of 1875-70. It was in this school that Mrs. Wa terman gained the distinction of being the first public teacher to whom ex.riovernor Sheldon and ex-Congressman Pollard went to school. They were both small boys at the time. Mrs. Waterman (then Miss Bella Ramsey), speaks in the highest terms of the studious habits of these two boys, who afterward became prominent in Nebraska politics. Mrs. Waterman is the widow of Dr. John M. Waterman, to 'whom she was married at Plattsmouth, Neb., on March 29, 1870. For a number of years their home was in Louisville, Neb., where the doc tor built up an extensive practice arid was also engaged in I he drug business at that place. In 1885 I he doctor took up a soldier's homestead near Hay Springs, Sheridan county, Nebraska, to which he moved his family in the spring of 188(i. Upon this 100 acres the doctor made valuable improvements and upon which he and his family resided until the doctor's death on August 5, 1890. After the doctor's death and when the Kinkead homestead law became effective, Mrs. Waterman took up a homestead claim under that act of 480 acres, locating the same about twenty miles south of Hay Springs, in Sheridan county, Nebraska, upon which she, and her daughter, Miss Hlhel, resided until she was able to make final proof and receive her patent from the government. While visiting the Journal ollice Mrs. Waterman met for the first time in many years James A. Walker of Murray, whose family and Mrs. Waterman, forty-two years ago, formed a friendship at Old Rock Bluffs that has remain ed unbroken for so many years. This is Mrs. Waterman's first visit, to Cass county for about fifteen years and she receives a most cordial greeting from her old as well as new friends.

STRONG SUSPICIONS THAT HE WILL NOT RETURN ALONE This afternoon County Attor ney Taylor departed on a month's vacation trip to California, where he will visit the different points of interest along the Pacific coast before returning home.

By Order of Library Board. Krom Wednesday's Dallv. This morning William Barclay was taken quite violently ill at his home with severe pains in his stomach, and it was feared at first that he was suffering from an attack of appendicitis, but af ter an examination by the attend ing physician it was thought that the attack was due to gravel stones and he was taken to his room and will have to remain quiet for some time. The patient was reported as resting a little more easily this noon and it is thought he will be all right in a short time. Mr. Barclay is a very active man and his enforced quiet will be very trying on him, but his friends hope to see him up and around in a few days. SOU EVER BIG FISH STORIES FROM MEADOW II The fishing party from this city which descended upon the peace ful country around Meadow, in Sarpy county, last Saturday, have been reached by wireless and re port one of the times of their lives. Up to dale Wesley Book meyer has taken the honors in fishing, having secured a fine 12 pounder last Sunday, and al though the fish fought manfully it was landed after a great deal of difficulty by Wes, assisted by Ous Swanson and August Rliein ackle. The party has been re inforced by the arrival of Will Mason, and the task of landing the big fish will be carried on day and night and some big catches are looked for. It is reported one of the party fell into one of the ponds near the camp Sunday evening while fishing, having a big one on the hook and line that pulh'd I he fisherman right in af ter it, but as the water is not more than a few feet deep he was extracted without trouble by his comrades. The party will remain in camp until next Saturday, when they will return loaded down with the trophies of the ex pedition into the wilds of Sarpy county. j 36 Jilt fl'J,l. ft 2n- 'IV' ALCOHOL 3 fEK CtNT.J AcgctaWeRTpafalionforAs similaKngttjtFootfandRrdula ting tlie Siomaclis andBowlsaf Proraotes DigestbnlWj-ncssandRestjComalninelfar Opiuiu-Morphine rwrWmal NOT NARCOTIC.

NCW 0 ClTr i - FORMER CASS COUNTY MAN'S AUTO STOLEN IN OMAHA from Wednesday's Dally. Yesterday the 'automobile be longing to J. II. IsMchols, formerly of Union, but who has for the past two years been engaged in the real estate business in Oma ha, was stolen from in front of the Brandeis theater building, in which Mr. Nichols has his ofiices, and all efforts to locate the ma chine have failed. The machine was an Apperson 30 and of dark color, with the initials "J. B. N." on the doors of. the car. It is thought that perhaps the parties taking the car may have came this way with the machine, and all farmers along the main automo bile roads are warned to look out for the car. The number of the machine was 32187 Nebraska, and any information leading to the capture of the thieves would be gratefully received by Mr. Nich ols! The loss of the machine is quite heavy, as it was a valuable car and it is to be hoped the own er will be able to recover the automobile. . .-rr??WT,.. .. .-,t. ... ,,,, ,., , "' ''"' ' ' 1 "' "f1' H- I I fl HERE ARE A FEW SUGGESTION FOR JULY A 1 FPn iifpiiifiinf Kfi p SALE CLOSES SATURDAY RiiGUT POSITIVELY J Now is your opportunity to buy your wearing apparel at invoice prices.
