From FiM.iy's l:iily.

liam II inri.-hsen.
After Ihe business session of
Hit hdpe the members adjourned
In li. iKimiiii'l hall, where a feast
that xxas tit for a kinp had been
prepared, and here I he warriors
ami t hief- enjoyed themselves for
several hours and palhered
around their new brothers whom
Ihev had adopted into the tribe
al this meetinr.
Chief Yellow Hear performed
ha- part in sinpini- ihe I Mitch
Mockinp P.ird" and the manner in
which he carried it out was a
wonderment to those who heard
him. His thrills and melodies
carried the audience bark to thai
piml old church land where such
sinpinp could be heard on the
hillside and wafted across the
alleys where the grapes ines and
apple trees were prowinp in pro
fusion. He wafted his melodies
on the cider press in the hall un
til the boys were all asleep. More
could be said of his wonderful
talent, but as he has promised to
pic this lodce another treat they
will be coislt-nt to wait for further
remark- on his work.
The next of the talented chiefs
to be called upon was Chief Spot
ted Tail in the very difficult lt.
hemiau Tanpo. and he was very
pood for the time he had to pre
pare for the event. His move
ment were very praceful. but
when he tried to pet the heel ac
tion in the dance he pot his form
in such shape that he looked like
a piraffe, only that he was not
spotted. He will, with a little
more practice, make oml in this
-tunt there is no doubt. Chief
White Cloud performed his part
very well jn sinpinp "'The Irish
Washerwoman." hut he seemed
to be thinking of the old washing
and forpol to put the melody into
the museie. Hi- next musical
treat will be -The Arkansaw
Traveler." Chief tied Horse was
not tpiite a failure. the' only
double with his pari was that his
head seemed ton heavy for his
feet when he was tryi np- to per
form his difficult pails, but it is
thought he could be sent back to
Oermany and put in the care of
a pood instinct or for three years
and would probably make pood.
There were a number of others on
the program who were ripht on
"the job in their acts, but space
forbids a more extensive mention.

THE WORK ON
The Roads Throughout
County Are in Good
From Friday's Iallv.
The manv farmer- who have
visited the city, as well as parlies
from town who have made trips
out into the country in the last
ten days. report the road- in
most of the county to be in ex
cellent shape and xery pood to
travel over, either with team or
automobile, and it is an excep
tion when any bad roads are
truck in Iravelintr. and this
sali-facloiy condition is due
larpclv to the manv farmers who
have taken the time ! drap I heir
roads and place them in pood
Condition before the freeillP
weather sets in. -which made the
roads have a pood basis, and
when the thawin? weather as at
present set in. durinp the days
they retained the solid smooth
ness and base imparted to them
by the work of the draps and
crapcrs and furnish the farm
er- and others with pood means
of travel, and the pood work
should be continued and at every
favorable opportunity the old
drap potten out and placed 011
the road to make them retain
their pood condition all throuph
the winter months.
The different road supervisors
throuphout the county put in
manv a hard days work on the
roads in their districts and can
now feel very proud of 'be excel
lent condition in which they are.
One of the hardest roads in this
section to keep in shape is that
b-adinp to the wasn bridpe over
the Platte river, on account of
the hills that lead to if and the
siionpv soil of the Platte bottom.
which makes the task of keeping
up the road in proper shape a
hard one. and oxvinir to the fact
that this road is a link in the
irreat Kansas City-Omaha route
it should be looked after as much
as possible ami kept in such
shape as to permit I ravel over it
at all seasons of Ihe year.
The condition .if the avenues in
this city is one that has piven the
street commissioner and council
men much trouble, as they are in
quite a rouirh condition, especial
ly that of Washinpton avenue,
which is quite rouph and cut up
by the wheels of the vehicles, but
it i- hoped to be able to have it
fixed up so as to allow travel over
it in comfort.
