"For Efficiency in Conversation
"The highest point of efficiency inthe art of
eenversation," said a prominent financier recent
ly, "is, to my mind, attained in talking over the
telephone. There is no waste of time in a tele
phone talk, no formality, no introductory chat
about politics or weather."
"A personal interview that consumes fifteen
minutes of my time may be condensed into three
minutes by Telephone. I have no doubt that
business men regard the telephone as superior to
either a letter or an interview because it com
bines the advantages of both."
The telephone allows the business man to
attend to the many little details of his day's
work without was of time. It cuts down un
necessary moves and produces real results
with the least effort

charming setting to (he jolly
party, which numbered some
lifleen of the relatives and close
friends of this highly respected
gentleman, in whose honor Ihe
event was gotten up. After the
dinner Ihe company enjoyed
themselves in various amuse
ments until a lale hour, when
they departed, leaving, with the

OUT IN THE INTEREST OF
BETTER TRAIN SERVICE
Attorney William C. Ramsey of
Omaha came down this afternoon
on No. 2 i o allend to some legal
mailers for a few hours.
The committee representing
the Commercial club was out
yesterday visiting the different
parts of the county in the in
terest of the matter f securing
better train service over the Mis
souri Pacific for the residents of
the county, and they met with
much encouragement in all the
places visited, as the citizens
throughout the county recognize
the need for the betterment of
the service, and are all willing to
assist in helping secure a train
that will connect, for the north at
Union with the K o'clock Lincoln
branch train and have it return
from this city about 3 in Hit aft
ernoon, which will give all an
opportunity to attend to their
business affairs in this city and
return home the same day. The
matter has been set for hearing
September 19th, at which time
the state railway commission will
hear all protests and arguments
for and against the matter of
providing the train. The Mis
souri Pacific has had ample op
portunity to provide relief, but
absolutely refused, until the mat

. Receives Samples of Rice.
J. F. Stull, who has been here
visiting for the past few weeks,
received a box containing samp
les of rice and sugar cane grown
on his place in -Louisiana. The
samples were sent by Mrs. Stull,
who is at home. A sample of the
rice was left at this ollice and
seems like a mighty fine variety,
which Mr. Stull says will make
between sixty and seventy bush
els to the acre. The marketing
price of the highest grades of
rice in his locality is usually
about two and one-half cents per
pound, so when seventy bushels
are raised to the acre it makes a
pretty good crop.

amused themselves at cards and
social conversation during the

around tne loard to do amine
justice to the elegant spread that
rellected so much credit upon the

Yesterday the court of Judge
M. Archer was filled by a number
of direlicts. all of whom were
charged with being intoxicated.
and from the appearance of the
prisoners thus charged it could
readily be seen was only too true
and the protests of some of the
prisoners was unavailing, as the
court was firmly convinced that
they had been indulging too
fieely of the sparkling extract of
corn i juice. Tracy Jackson was
one of the prisoners arraigned
and as the court had been visited
on Friday by Tracy while in a
stale of exhilaration, there was
no sympathy given the prisoner
bv the court and Tracy was
warned to seek more congenial
climes before the setting of an
other sou. and he promised to get
himself hence, and in the word?
of the poet, "shake the dust of
this little city from off his pedal
extremities." William Long and
M. A. Monahan were also callers
al the court under the charge of
being intoxicated and .were as
sessed a fine of $2 and costs,
which made it necessary for them
to shell out 5 in good American
cash before the scene of out
raged justice could be placated,
and the prisoners were then re
leased to go their way rejoicing.
A. L SKINNER SEVERS
HIS CONNECTION WITH
From Tuesday's Dally.
Albert L. Skinner, who, for the
past, two years has been employ
ed by the Lincoln Telephone and
Telegraph company in this cily,
as wire chief of their plant, de
parted this afternoon for Kim
berly, Juano, where lie will join
hi family, who left for that
place some few weeks ago. Mr.
Skinner expects to engage in the
telephone business in Twin
Falls, Idaho, in the future, and
has severed his connection with
the company here; and while he
regrets to leave this city, feels
thai he should take up the op
portunity offered him in the west.
The Skinjier family made many
friends while residents of this
city, who will greatly regret lo
see them leave, but trust they
may enjoy the utmost prosperity
in their new home.

James Robertson was a Very busy
place yesterday, when a large
number of the substantial resi

would make them full-fledged

good to pee, as these worthy
gentlemen have resided in this

years and embrace some of the
best citizens in the west part of
the county. The new ruling of
the department of labor in re
