THE HEW CASS
Tho County Commissioners Visit
the Farm and Inspect the
Tiie . county commissioners
yesterday visited I lie new county
building' on the farm west of this
city, which is now rea'dy for oc
cupancy, and as a result of their
trip were greatly pleased with
the condition of affairs there.
The new building is being moved
into by Superintendent George
Tains and family and in a short
time they will be settled in the
new quarters in the new build
ing and the task of placing the
inmates at the farm will be com
menced. The building is a
splendid appearing structure
from the exterior, and the archi
tect, Mr. Lawrie, has made the
plans so as to make it strictly
up-to-date and constructed along
lines that will give the greatest
ease in handling the old people
who make their home there, and
no detail ha? been overlooked
that will serve to make the build
ing modern in every respect.
Throughout the building'
everything lias been made in a
simple and sanitary style that
makes the structure an ideal one
for the purpose that it is intend
ed. A system of ventilators in
the different rooms will make the
sleeping quarters in the building
much more sanitary than the obi
ont's in the building that former
ly occupied the site of the new
structure. The building is equip
ped in line shape for the handling
of the work, in the kitchen ami
laundry rooms, as in the laundry
stationary wash tubs connected
with both hot and cold water,
have been placed to allow the
handling of the work, and the
kitchen, too, is fitted up in a
spbndiI manner that will make
the work there a pleasure. In
each room on the first and sec
ond floor there are ample closets
and finely equipped bath rooms
and toilet rooms, which are also
one of the great improvements
over the old building and tliey
are so situated as to be of easy
access to the old people. The
lighting system of the building is
another point that deserves a
great deal of praise, as the lights
are all of the latest type of ceil
ing lights and they are ample to
suit the needs of the family of
the superintendent and the in
mates. Take it all over the building is
a luinhty fine structure and the
contractor, Mr. Hedding, has
given the county a fine building
that they ran be proud of, and
tin commissioners are deserving
of much credit for having se
cured it at such a low price.
Play at the K. S. Hall.
The ohemian Catholic Dra
matic club has made arrange
ments to give another of their
pleasant dramatic offerings at
the K. S. hall on Saturday even
ing. April 25, and are making
every arrangement ' make the

title of the play is "Zastavenicka
J'ri Mesicku," ami it is a comedy
of the type much enjoyed by the
Iloliemians in their native land,
and in the hands of the excellent
company of actors of the club
will be a great success. The ad
mission will be 25 cents.

THE LAST IN THE FAMOUS
BRIDGE CASE BETWEEN
SARPY ANO CASS COUNTIES
What will probably be the last
chapter in the famous Louisville
bridge case between Cass and
Sarpy counties was enacted yes
terday afternoon when the board
of county commissioners received
a warrant for s'HUi, representing
the interest on the principal of
S3, 000 which was assessed
against Sarpy county as their
part of the case, which they lost
in the supreme court of the state.
This case occupied the attention
of the district curt of Sarpy
county ami the .stale supreme
court, being tried before that
body several times and remanded,
but the court finally found for
Cass county and awarded them
judgment for the amount prayed
for, with interest. The lawsuit
arose over a bridge at Louisville
which this county was forced to
maintain entirely, as Sarpy coun
ty refused to contribute a cent
toward its maintance. The
bridge has long since yielded to
the elements and been washed
