be 23x100 feet, two stories high, the low

upper for offices. Draper Brothers
will have 27 feet frontage on Main
street by 100 feet back. They had in
tended also building two stories, the
Odd Fellows taking the upper story,
but their constitution being prohibitive
unless owning the location whereon the
building may be situated, they could
not receive a dispensation, hence the
Messrs. Draper will make their build

There is one traveling ra«n who will

been innocent and guileless, but that
will never save him for “butting in.’
The tragic tale unfolds in all its hideous
ness as follows. He was standing in
a Model restaurant in our city, when a
prominent Belle, accompanied by a
Growiug young man entered and en
gaged the urbane front-row proprietor
in a conversation relating to a long felt
want—it supper time. As they left the
food dispensatory, the t. m. inquired if
the couple were husband and wife,
with a woe-begune-widower look in his
pale pink eyes. “I should say not,” was
the response. “Of course not,” returned
the p. p. eyed t. m, “I should Jmve
known better; any one could see she
was the kid’s mother.” [Slow curtain.

While taking a boat ride on the river;

lovely Loup river mud and moisture.
The solution solved the question-and

was c Starr performance.
While driving at a brisk trot, Sun
day afternoon, with Lawyers Mathew
and Starr in tiie buggy, Mr. Mathew's
fine buggy team became disengaged
from the vehicle by the tugs getting
loosed, the tongue dropping and break
ing, overturning the buggy, throwing
both occupants violently to the ground,
Mr. Starr underneath, with Mr. Ma
thew on top. While Mr. Mathew es
caped uninjured, Mr. Starr was quite
severely bruised about the hips, neces
sitating the use of crutches. However,
the meteoric descendency of that par
ticular Starr is not permanent. No
damage was done the team which was
soon caught. Later, we learn that with
the exception that the tugs did not be
come unhitched until after the tongue
fell and broke, that Starr fell on Ma
thew and the buggy on Starr, and a few
other little inaccuracies, the first report
is substantially correct, but we couldn’t
tear the item to pieces for such minor
corrections. We have, however, killed
Does advertising pay has been much
discussed in our city of late, pro and

men. A few days since, this office
turned out some circulars of an adver
tising naturfe for a mercantile firm,
which, together with a necessary arti
cle for a lady's toilet, were enclosed in
bulky envelopes, and addressed to the
sex for whom were most appropriate.
These enyelnpes when taken from the
postoffice developed so much latent cu
riosity among the assembled male bi
peds that shredded envelopes were soon
numerous about them and disclosed the
contents to their view, which mental
calculation not being able to evolve how
one could cover two resolved into a
game of giveaway and "jefflng” until

On Tuesday,evening,at the open-'
ing of the session, the Baptist house
of worship was filled to listen to
Rev. C. J. Pope and President Geo.
Sutherland of Grand Inland.
Rev. Pope gave way to Mrs. C. J.
Adair, a very forceful speaker, well
known to Loup City people. She
gave a telling interpretation of the
parable of the unjust steward.
Dr. Sutherland in his address
showed why Christian education is
necessary. lie declared that Grand
Island college is the best place to se
cure an education in the state. As
proof, he cited the winning of the
Oxford Cecil Rhode’s scholarship of
$4,500 by a Grand Island student.

junior work to the Sunday school,
followed by an open discussion of
Christian giving, from which all
