Day -and Having a Good Time.
Every union barber shop in Lincoln
was closed all day during the Fourth,
and as a re3ult the journeymen and
bosses were permitted to celebrate the
day as it deserved.
Talk about hustling, the proprietors
of the shop under the Columbia Na
tional bank gave an exhibition of it
the first of the week. Sunday after
noon's flood filled the shop to the ceil
ing, but the proprietors and journey
men hustled the chairs and other fix
tures out. polished them up, cleaned
un the debris, and on the morning 01
reaHv for business. The
damaee amounted to about $250, and
would have amounted to four times
that -sum If quick work at getting the
things out had not been performed.
