baa neter happened before, haa called
a the Chicago sub-treasury to help
tlm out. Meanwhile thereserres In
the bank are decreasing and banka are
mashing all oer the country. The

Bank at Tlngly ban appended and the
cashier, Kobert Bennett, has left for
parte unknown. Deposits were recei ved

The Elmira National Bank, which clos
ed its doors yettterday, is the preferred

Denver, May 24.-Rumors have been
entrant for some days ol weakness in the
People's National bank and the People's
Savings bank, which culminated this
morning in a heavy run by depositors
'upon both these institutions, 'ihe offi
cials of the bank say they will be able
to withstand the onslaught. There is
uneasiness in ether quarters, and it is
likely runs will be made on other banks
though everything is quiet at present
except the run above noted.
Jackson, Mich., May 25,-Klngs bank

payment this afternoon. F. G. King,
banker, has made an alignment to

tion of the affairs of that concern, is
bringing to light some peculiar method i
Kraotloed by Its officials, and suit will

itors and ho.'d the officers to an account
In the courts. When the bank was
organized Dwlgglns, Starbuck 4c Co.
took three-fourths of the capital stock,
but they only put in 15,000 in oash. As
soon as the bank was under way and
137,000 had been reoelved in deposits

A GRAND ENTERPRISE.
Lincoln's Magnificent New Bath
We are pleased to place before the
readers of The Alliance-Independent
a brief description of the Sulpho
Saline Bath House and Sanitarium,
which for grandeur and completeness
In all departments is net surpassed by
any similar institution. It is a credit
to the state.
A glance at this great bath house in
dicates its Spanish rennalsance style of
architecture strongly influenced by the
Moorish spirit. What strikes the be
holder first, of course, Is its great size
and then its picturesque outline. The
coloring is as rich and varied as the
outline. The main material used for the
building tower and all is vitrified and
rockfaced brick. Carved brown stone
trimmings appear only in the coignes,
the window sills and cornices, Spanish
tiles cover the roof, whiles quaint
Moorish balcony overhanging the facade
lends additional beauty to the enterior.
The rotunda is palatial in character
and appointments. The first impreeslon
is one of oriental splendor. The floor
is an elaborate mosaie made of tiny bits
of marble in Pompelian design sur
rounded by a wainscoting of Mexican
onyx, reflecting the beauties -of the
frescoed walls and ceiling.
The physician's apartment! are con
veniently situated just left of the main
entrance, they are richly decorated in
French and Persian effects and contain
everything necessary for scientific
work on modern principles.
The hot tali baths. The Artesian
wells in the basement of this great
establishment pour forth a dally Hood
of mineral waters, having no
equal in the healing of rheumatism,
Neuralgia, Catarrh, Dyspepsia, Mala
rial poisoning, Liver, Kidney and ner
vous troubles, Skin and Blood deseaser,
general debility, etc. etc.,
Too much cannot be said of the bene
fits to be derived from a systematic
course of hot salt baths given by
The reception room partakes of the
Moorish spirit throughout, the rich
carpets, wall hangings, mantels, fret
work, draperies and furniture being
special designs of a most elaborate
character. It is a grand apartment,
having no superior and but a few equals
in the country.
The bed rooms are pronounced
charming by all who have visited them,
each is supplied with a brass bed, oak
furniture, electric light and call bell,
and all are outside rooms, bright and
sunny, and well ventilated, they are for
the use of invalids and those wishing
to rsmaln over night after taking a
Turkish or Russian batb.
Tht .Vantage Manicure, Chiropodest and
Boot Black departments are in charge or
competent persons and all work is
guaranteed to be of the best.
The oaroer snop is in cnarge oi com
petent and careful men who understand
their business aud who strive to pleaoe
their customers, the appointments are
the best that money can provide and
the shop presents a very inviting ap
pearance with its polished marble floor
and brilliant wall decorations of red
The ladles hair dressing parlors, and
parlors they are Indeed. They are
considered by many to be the most in
viting rooms In the entire building.
The attendants are experienced and

When visiting Lincoln you should
not go away without looking through
this magnltlsent building.
