Yesterday F. M. Pres. a retail
groceryr.un of Oraaha, came down
from his home- to look xifter the
whereabouts of C. W. Earn1-, a paint

ir. Omaha for some time. It seems
that Barns had got acquainted with
Pros at his store, and on fn-qt.ent oc
casions he had c3.-hu:i checks for the
painter and they had aHva;.T.s proven
food, and when t-rt Tuesday Barns
presented a check for Si7 at the store,
it was cashed by Mrs. Fros, but later
it was found that the check had been
srnlen from another man who had re
ceived it for some work for the Con
servative Buiidin & Loar associa
tion. By this time Barns had disap
peared from view and nothinjr could
be discovered of his whereabouts, al
though Mr. Pros, made a thorough
search in the metropolis for the man
in the hopes of recovering his money.
The only clew that "he had was that

A lively little runaway occurred
Saturday afternoon. A team came
down from Washington avenue, on
Vine to Fifth, then down to and up
Main to the top of the hill by Mr.

called Clarence Whistler. It seem.-:
the men tried a bout in Omaha, and
Whistler threw the Frenchman, but it
was claimed there was some unfair
ness about it, and Christol chalienped
Whistler to try it apain at Platts
mouth, where Whistler would not be
surounded by his friends. The hall
was moderately full, some of our
best citizens attendinp, no ladies and
no children admitted. Messis. Sape
and Bestor were chosen referees, and
Capt. Solliday, umpire. Phil Younp
lead the rules of the match. Tm
men were stripped to the waist and
were not allowed to catch any hold

Whistler is much the larger man and
vhrew Christol the first fall. Christol
pained the second fall and strained
Whistler's elbow so that he could not
use it in the third round, though
Christol was not allowed to catch on
that side. Christol won the last fail
and, of course, the match. Prof.
McCune pave some exercises with
war clubs, and Christol and W. L.
Wells tried the gloves a little. All
was orderly and quiet and the audi

GELEBHfiED THE FOURTH
Ifi FGHTEKELLE PARK
Misses Belle and Dorothy Speck re
turned home from Omaha Tuesday
evening, where they had been visiting
with their brother, John and wife,
for the past four days. While in the
metropolis they celebrated on the fifth
of July at Fontenelle park. This was
the larpest celebration of its kind, and
the younp ladies enjoyed all kinds of
amusements, principal among which
were the races, ball game, drills and
fireworks. The races were very in
teresting and were so alluring that
our friends participated in a race for
younp ladies, and Belle contested for
a prize in a relay race and carried off
second prize, which was a handsome
shirt waist set. In the evening they
witnessed the fireworks at the park,
which were certainly grand and worth
seeing. The improvement clubs, which
had charge of the celebration, bought
the fireworks, which amounted to sev
eral hundred dollars.
Union Meeting on Parsonage Lawn.
There will be a union meeting of
the United Brethren of Liberty and
the Methodists of Mynard on the lawn
of the U. B. parsonage next Sunday,
July 11. . Special, music will be " fur
nished and Kev. G. A- Randall will
preach. Everybody is cordially in
vited to attend.
The usual afternoon service will be
held at the Eight Mile Grove church
next Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock.
We urge all that possibly can to be
present. The Pastor.
BAND CONCERT AND
TWO BALLOON AS
The free public entertainment to
be given for the residents of Platts
mouth and vicinity on next Saturday
will consist of two balloon ascensions,
one at 11 a. m. and one at 5 p. m.,
on the lot on Washington avenue
where it was expected to hold the
ascension last Saturday had not the
stormy weather interfered with the
program. The concert by the Bur
lington band will be given on Main
street at 2 o'clock and will be one of
the pleasing features of the after
noon's program of entertainment. For
those who enjoy a good ball game the
base ball association has provided a
contest with the Cedar Creek team at
the base ball park east of the Bur
linpton station, and this will be given
for a small admission fee. The ladies
rest room in the Hotel Riley block
will be open for the visitors from the
country and the ladies, when seeking
a place to rest, can find a most com
foriable room here awaiting their
pleasure. All residents of the county
are invited to come in and spend the
day in this city and get acquainted
with our people.
FLOWER LAND" AT
Mrs. Mae Morgan is in Nehawka at
present arranging for the presenta
tion in that beautiful little city in the
rext two weeks of "Cinderella in
Flowerland," a very pretty musical
operetta for the young folks. This
operetta was given in this city two
years ago under the direction of Mrs.
Morgan and was a most delightful
r.d pleasing entertainment and was
ttended by an audience that filled
the Parmele theater to its utmost
capacity and was greatly enjoyed by
those fortunate enough to be present.
Mrs. Morgan has great talent in the
training of the young people in
musical work and there is no doubt
that in the Nehawka production of
the operetta the same success will re
sult as characterized the perform
ance in this city. The cast will be
selected from the young people of Ne
hawka and they are now working on
the musical number, as well as the
drills and dances which will be used
in the operetta.

ONE OF THE FINEST
AND CLEANEST COM
In order for a carnival company to
meet with success these days it is
necessary that all offensive and re
pulsive features which at one time
were a part of each company, bu
eliminated. The great sucess in this
line of the amusement business of S.
W. Bundage, whose shows are to ex
hibit here for one week beginning
next Monday, is that Mr. Brundage
has always endeavored to give the
public clean and moral entertainment
and has always waged war against
the features which are offensive. Mr.
Brundage's principal slogan, "our
shows have passed the pure show
laws," has established for his in
stitution a splendid reputation wher
ever the shows have exhibited. But
few carnival attractions have as
spledid a line-up of attractions as the
Brandage shows. Mr. Brandage has
made an effort to provide the public
with a different line of amusement
and has surrounded himself this rea
son with an assemblage of attractions
which heretofore have never been
seen with an organization of this kind.
Leon W. Marshall's famous 'Happy
Days in Dixieland" is the big feature
carried by Mr. Brundage. This at
traction is one of the best minstrel
performances on the road and will
please all here.
Mr. Jos. Chyma, of Tama, Iowa,
wishes to give a good advice to every
body. He says the following: "I re
ceived the goods ordered and used up
two bottles. Triner's American
Elixir of Bitter Wine is helping me
very much and I can recommend it
conscientiously to weak people trou
bled with their stomach. In such cases
your Elixir is an excellent help.
Please send me again as much as the
last time. Jos. Chyma, Ttma, Iowa."
Mr. Chyma well understands the ef
fects of this remedy to n lieve ftom
ach ills, to clean out the inte.stir.es
and to strengthen the body. It should
also be used in diseases complicated
with constipation. Price S1.00. At
drug stores. Jos. Triner, Manu
facturer, 1333-1330 S. Afhland Ave.,
Triner's Liniment penetrates the
skin quickly and goes to the very seat
of pain. Give it a good trial. Price
25c or 50c, by mail 35c or (0c.
One section, 640 acres, wheat land
