There was a fair sized audience
present last evening at the I'ar
mele theater to witness the pre
sentation of the 'famous comedy,
"The Oiii in the Taxi," and all
were well pleased with this offer
ing, which is shown for laughing
purposes only, and from start to
finish there was not a moment
when there was not something
doing in the laugh-provoking
line, and the clever company pre
senting the play were well cast in
the different roles they appear
The one bright star in the
company is undoubtedly Geor
Falkner, who appears as Bertie
and his work was certainly al
that could be asked for, and as a
comedian he has few equals and
kept everyone in a hearty laugh
from the start until the final cur
tain. Miss Alleen Morrison as
.Mignon, the girl in the taxi, was
very clever and -'had' a splendi
stage presence, ami with her
beautiful and attractive gowns
made a very handsome appear
ance and was in the center of the
fun and frolic, which served to
make the plot of the play.
The scene of the play was in
gay New York and the girls am:
the gentlemen in the cast were

The Journal office this morn

from W. J. O'Brien, the efficient
state fish commissioner of South

The price of land in Cass
county has risen in the last six
teen years to price-'that in the
years gone by would seem almost
incredable, and still the prices
climb up and up as the demand
increases for the great fertile
prairies of this section of the
state. An illustration of the
rapid increase is shown by the
sale of a tract of eighty aeres of
land near Murdock a few days
ago bv Mrs. Margaret Boreineier
to Herman Kupke, for which he
gave the sum of 15,000 for the
land w hich has never been touch
ed by the stroke of.the plow and
is in practically the same hape
as when purchased by Mrs.
Bornemeier in 1890 for the sum
of .3,500, and it seems almost
wonderful at the change that
these few years has made in the
price of this land. The section
of the county where this land is
located is one where the highest
prices are commanded for the
farm land and the great crops
that have been raised on them
clearly shows the wonderful
value of them as farming lands.
Those who are picturing the in
creasing values of farm lands in
different parts of the. country will
have to go some to beat this

Last evening at the home of
her daughter, Mrs. T. L. Shafer,
in the west part of the city, Mrs
Louisa J. Finch passed away at
the advanced age of 90 years,
succumbing to her burden of
years, which is far greater than
is usually alloted to the average
human beings. Mrs. Finch had
made her home with her daugh
ter for a number of years and
lad been quite feeble for some
years. ' Mrs. 1-inch had lived in
this city for the. past three years,
coming here with her daughter
from (llenwood, Iowa, where she
resided for years. She was the
mother of E. F. Finch of this city
and It. G. Bailey of near Murraj-,

be a short funeral service held at
the late home tomorrow morning

of that day he hastened out and
hitched up the team to the old
rieliable road drag and started
for Plattsmouth, and returned
the same way, and as a result
put the roads in very good shape
for travel and he was able to
come in that evening in his
car to attend the show and re
turn home the same evening over
the road, whose ruts and ridges
had been smoothed down by the
faithful drag . This is certainly
a most commendable action on
the part of Mr. Sans and his ex
ample will stand as a glittering
mark to his neighbors and others
residing along the main roads in
Cass county, as to how to secure
good roads by a little effort, and
displays the proper public spirit.

There are several places in the
county where the farmers have
drapged the roads in the vicinity
of their homes and there the dif

one traveling over these road
from the ones where the persons
residing along the road refuse
to get busy on the repair and
maintance of the roadways.
Here is hoping that others
throughout the county will take
hold of the good roads move

of their homes at least, and

M. Warga, who for some years
has conducted a grocery and
meat market in the building one

from business, his stock being
purchased by II. F. Hecht. The
stock is being invoiced and will
be moved to Mr. Ilecht's store in
the Masonic Temple building,
where it will be disposed of. Mr.

will not be put on the shelves in

From Wednesday' Dailr.
Thomas Wiles, wno re-ides
on West Locust street, report
that a few nights ao someone
came near making away with one
of his :;c- -arlin heifer
which was in the pasture a few
blocks west tf his residence, and
which he alue.s very highly. He
went out to the pasture on Mori-
day evening to feed the stock and
noticed that the cows, as we!j as
the calf, were in good shape and
all w-re on hand to be fed. but
when he made a visit to the pas
ture on the next morning he was
greatly surpri-ed to find around
the neck of the calf a small rope,
apparently a part f a clothe
line, which was tie. J jri a !ip
noose knot and drawn p;ite
tishtly around the neck of the
animal, apparently with the in
tention of either rhokintr it t
death or the party doing the deed
had intended to lead the anima!
away from the pasture and had
been fri-rhtened away before they
had accomplished their ptirpo-c
lne animal on winch the rope
was found was a particulraly line
fat one and Mr. Wiles think that
it was the work of someone win
inought lo secure some nice
fresh beef without the formality
of purchasing it. but the identify
of the party doing the deed is
shrouded in msiery and Mr.
Wiles is very deirou of finding
out just wfio hi their e e on his
animals. that tie may protect
himself from them in the future,
but he feels very well pleased
that they were not able to carry
out their intention of making
away with the animal and he will
