The committee had arranged a plat
form where the dainty refreshments
of ice cream and punch could be se
cured and which was very liberally
patronized by the crowd of dancers.
The location of the dance in the
open air proved a very agreeable
feature as the warm weather has
made the dances on the interior quite
uncomfortable but the splendid plat
form and appropriate surroundings
made the dance most pleasing to ev
eryone and the crowd remained on
the dance floor until the midnight
hour when most of them wended

the right hand salute were in their
The similarity arose over the .fail
ure of a sailor to salute a second lieu
tenant of the army, who has been
here on some work at the rifle range
and the furor that followed was such
as would have pleased the most hard
boiled member of the staff at the St.
Anne. Lester Bailey, who is home
cn a furlough was the storm center
of the affair and the lieutenant was
very full of wrath that the right
semaphore of the young man had not
snapped into position as he passed
by and for a few minutes the sailor
was threatened with arrest, trial and
all the various punishments that the
army regulations can provide from
the 1st to the 96th. However, the
matter pased without serious trou
ble beyond the first excitement as the
officer evidently concluded that the
affair was not as serious as was
thought at first.

RIVER AT LAST OVERFLOWS.
From Siitu'Jay's Dallv.
After a long threatening period of
two weeks, the flooded Platte and
Missouri rivers this morning com
menced pouring their waters over the
bottom land east of the Burlington
pasenger station. The water flow
ing onto the Bach farm comes from
the first channel of the Missouri riv
er, which has been swollen by the
waters from the Platte and is at
some points of suff icient depth to al
low a skiff to be navigated with
ease. Reports from Schuyler indi
cate a few inches rise in the Platte
there, while reports from Omaha in
dicate that a small raise may be
looked for at all points from Fre
mont east to the Missouri.
Mr. Lowe, occupying the Bach
farm, has just plowed up a portion
of the land and placed it to corn and
it is this part of the same that the
flood waters decided to overflow onto.
TAKES TWO YOUNG BOYS UP
WHO HAD RUN AWAY
On Saturday Marshal John Linn
took charge of two young boys about
the ages of 12 to 14 who had decided
that home was not good enough for
them and" had decided to go out in
the world and see what they could
see. They had gotten as far as Elm
wood from their home in Lincoln
when tired and hungry they were
taken up by Marshal Linn who took
them in charge. They seemed quite
docile and ready for any chance to
get back home. They were taken
home in the Tip-Top bread truck that
makes this place every day and we
will venture to say that they were
mighty glad that they were on their
way home and that they had learned
enough of the big, big world that
they will be content to stay at home
for the present at least. ElmwoocT
