A Large Audience Witness Some of
the Finest Acting Ever Per
formed in This City.
The program given here last eve
ning by the Empress advance vaude
ville was one if not perhaps the best
bill that this high class organization
has presented and its members last
evening were all good and included
'a well balanced and clever assortment
of vaudeville acts.
Evely and Dolly, two very clever
little ladies gave a really wonderful
exhibition of trick bicycle riding that
was thrilling in the extreme and
demonstrated that these two ladies are
without a peer in this line of work.
Keno & Wagner presented an odd and
at the same time quite pleasing num
ber in their sketch, "Midnight in
Toyland" and this was something
that has not been seen here for some
time. One of the features of the pro
gram that pleased everyone was that
of Judson Cole, that talkative trick
ster, whose cleverness has really to
be seen to be fully appreciated and
this clever and versatile gentleman
n his different acts of slight-of-hand
made a great big hit with the audi
ence and his clever jokes and high
class comedy was most enjoyable and
it can be stated that as a slight-of-
hand performer he is as good as one
can find on the stage today. The big
gest act of the bill however was that
of the five McLarens, who in a Scott
ish musical act demonstrated their
ability in this line and won a great
deal of approval for their cleverness
for both their musical numbers as
well as in the dancing specialties
which they gave to the accompany
ment of the famous Scottish bag
pipes. This musical troupe carries
with them a very clever little lady as
drummer and she certainly pro
duced the greatest amount of music
out of this instrument that is possible.
The audience last evening was quite
arge and everyone felt well pleased
in having attended and doubtless
there will be a great many new mem
bers of the Empress club to take in
the performance here each week as
they are given and they can rest as
surred that they will not be disap
pointed in the splendid attractions
that Manager Aldrich has secured.

MISS GEORGIA WHITE
Miss Georgia White who has been
engaged during the fall and winter
season at Siloam Springs, Arkansas,
as a trimmer in one of the leading
millinery establishments, is enjoying
a short visit at home in this city with
her mother and family, having com
pleted her work in the southern city.
Miss White is one of the most experi
enced milliners in this section and
has for the past few seasons been en
gaged in the work in a number of
the leading towns in the middle west
and has proven an expert in her line
of work and is in constant demand for
assisting in the millinery business.
DELIVERY CLERKS AT
THE POSTOFFIGE NOT
The lot of a clerk in the general
delivery department of the postoffice
is far from being a bed of roses and
the incidents that they are forced to
contend with are such as would some
times tax even the patience of a Job
to contend with and still preserve
a calm, even temper. It is really sur
prising to see the number of ques
tions that is plied to those clerks each
day as well as the unnecessary trips
they are compelled to make by parties
making inquiries for their mail and
n this the smaller children are es
pecially very' active. They will make
trips to the postoffice at every op
portunity and while it might have
been only a short time previous that
they had been there will inquire after
mail when they hardlyr ever receive
any. Another of the annoyances that
is given the clerks is that of some
one asking for mail and after it has
been given they will push it back anil
say they will call later as they just
wanted to know if there was any
there and then with an inward feeling
of gratified curosity they will depart
to return later and compel the clerk
to again dig up the mail. Others will
come to the window and stand there
and if the clerk does not recognize
them expresses great indignation at
being compelled to give their name
though the clerk has several thousand
patrons each day to meet and wait
upon. Truly the general delivery
clerk has no soft snap with all the
troubles and little annoyances they
meet up with.
Issues Marriage License.
This noon County Judge Beeson was
called upon to issue a marriage license
to Mr. Charles A. Whelan, aged 30,

phis, Neb., who motored from Mem
phis to the Berger home, near Ne
hawka, yesterday afternoon, for a few
days visit at the home of Mrs. Ost's
parents, motored from Nehawka to
this city today to attend to some busi
ness matters and do some shopping.

MATTER OF DR. COOK
VS. C, LAWRENCE
STULL IN COURT
This morning on the assembling of
the district court the case of Dr. E.
W. Cook vs. C. Lawrence Stull was
called for trial and the selection of
the jury commenced. This is a suit
for services pei formed by the plain
tiff and covers $152 with interest, in
cluding .$100 for an operation on Alva
Stull. a nephew of Mr. Stull, the op-
eration which was performed in this i
city in J yull91J, anil for which the!
plaintiff claims the defendant was re
sponsible as having called him to at
tend the injured young man. This
morning the plaintiff, and Dr. J. S.
Livingston, who assisted at the opera
tion were placed on the stand and de
tailed the circumstances of the opera
tion as well as the customary fees
charged in such eases. The defense
claims that he was not responsible for
the payment for the operation on Alva
Stull. The case will probably take
the greater part of the day in hearinc
as there are quite a number of witnesses.
