From FiM.iy's l:iily. I.a-t t-veninp there was a vt-ry larpe aticiidance of ihe int'inliiTs of Missouri Tribe -N. ;. Im p roved Order of IP-dmca. al their hall t take arl in the 1 1 I inp xxhich was inn of tin best I In order ha- held for some t i mi. The ludpe at this nee! in-; .-h-cled the oflicers for tin eiisniup; year as follow-: Sa.-hem Henry I.ahoda. j Senior Sapamore frank Ha w kenbei y. Junior Sasamon Tom Isiier. i Prophet it. 1. Oallon. Keeper of It'M-oi.l 111 i 1 Wall- r. Keeper of W.uimpum John Cory. I Mitral ( (iival Council (,f the order I. C. York aa'.f VTU 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. For Sale. One section.

THE WORK ON THE COUNTRY ROADS PAYS The Roads Throughout County Are in Good Condition. the 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. Seward Man to Wed. From Friday's Daily. Chieapo. til.. lec. t. Harry A. Cummins, aped 22, of Seward, Neb., secured a marriape license here today, naminp for his in tended bride Miss Lucetla Pat terson, aced 25. of Omaha.
