lutely of no benefit to any one, is that
of sending dipsomaniacs to the asylum
at Lincoln. The victim receives no
treatment calculated to destroy the
appetite for strong drink, but is mere
ly confined in the asylum among the
horde of insane people for a period of
three months. It is astounding what
fool legislation a body of supposedly
intelligent men can pass when they
once get at it. Here are a few figures
showing what it costs to send a

asylum, the annual levy would have
to be doubled or trebled.

Business College Notes
The Trier sisters now enter the
second season under our management.
They arc made up of live bona fide
sisters, the sopranos being; twins, the
altos being twins and Edna, the eld
est, is but thirty-five months older
thun the youngest. As a quintette
they have been singing for ten years,
and after two years' training took up
regular work for us. They are ut
once the most novel sisters combina
tion on the road and have the distinct
advantage of all being solo voices, all
talented and all well trained. That
they are the greatest sisters combina
tion ever put out we now assert, and
it will be but a mutter of a short time
until they have a national fame.
Thousands have already been highly
pleased with them. Midland Lyceum

talk or rather reud clippings from
some speech to the teuehers. The
writer has heard Mr. Mcltrien a num

given the speech he was billed to
give. Those things are disappointing
sometimes, but one thing about Mr.

Prof. Paul Dietrick made a nice trip
at 7 o'clock into the country with Itev.
Hummel Monday morning to take
some pictures of the minister's alfalfa
field as the fourth cropwas in cocks
for the hay buck. He took five pic
tures while there and then was back
in time for the 8:40 period in school.
They were fine pictures for such early
birds. The drive into the country did
the professor good.
The students arc out selling season
tickets for the College Lecture course
and they are having fine success.
Every one knows that the Midland
Bureau puts up a good course, and of

college and the public schools.

MISSED THE DETECTIVE.
George Hcaton Was Late In Arriving
Lincoln Star: George lleutou, the
Rod Cloud man who was "touched"
by Grace Allen, a colored women one
night during the fair week, appeared
In police court this morning with 'the
air of u tardy school boy. The hear
ing of the case against the Allen
woman was scheduled for Saturday,
but when the hour hove In sight noth
ing of the complaining witness was to
be seen. The hour passed, and County
Attorney Caldwell was indignant clear
to his toes. lie ordered the issuance
of a warrant, and a detective went up
to Red Cloud yesterday afternoon to
find that the complainant hud come to
Lincoln Saturday evening.
It was explained to Mr. Hcaton that
his failure to appear had caused a
hitch in justice and also the Issuance
of a warrant for himself. He was
duly surprised and stated that he was
stopping at a local hotel, where lie
registered Saturday afternoon on his
arrival on a late train.
Heaton was warmly embraced by a
buxom colored girl one night during
fair week, as he was standing in an
alley just out of the jostle of the
hurrying crowds. After the squeeze
was over he missed his purse and
started after the ileeing Miss Allen,
who led him a block through the
thickest crowds before he finally cup
tured her. In the meantime, however,
the pockctbook was dropped.

From Tuesday's Star. 4
George Heaton, an aged man from
Red C16ud, who after a long chase cap
tured the swift-footed colored girl
whom he thought had grabbed his
watch and then his purse, one night
of fair week, told all about it in police
court this morning.
As Heaton told his story, Mrs. Allen
became perceptibly agitated. He re
lated how she had approached him as
he stood in the alley, how she had
thrown her arms about him, how he
felt his watch leaving his pocket and
when he grabbed it buck, discovered
that his purse was also gone. He
sprinted after her "right smart" and
almost caught her. A young man
stopped her in front of the Western
Union telegraph office and she was
held until the police came.
Then the defendant was put on the
stand. She said that she was in com
pany with a girl friend of hers, named
Viola Bell. The mysterious Viola was
not produced in court, but Grace said
it was she who had done the alley
"This man stopped Viola and wunt
cd to talk to her in the alley," said
Gruce. "Pretty soon, Viola yelled
that the police was coming and she
took off down the alley and I run the
other way, coming out on the street
the same time. Then a young man
caught me at the Western Union."
On her admission of being captured
while running, Police Judge Cosgruve
held her to the district court under
8500 bonds, which she could not furn
ish. While she was waiting, "Ed" Proc
tor of Omaha, formerly notorious in
Lincoln affairs, was brought Into the
station. Detective Malone had seen
him in town and supposed he had
come to help defend his daughter, the
woman under arrest. On his arrival,
the girl broke into uncontrollable
screams and tears and fairly drenched
the police court iioor.

While assisting In putting up a
stovepipe Tuesday afternoon, at her
home, Miss Ella Stonebreuker fell

standing, breaking her right wrist.
