The mystery of our pronounced und unequaled
success is not because wo are gifted with any super
natural qualification ) ; , nor is it duo to our liberal ad
vertising ; not in our "aystem" nor in our ability to
convince people that black is white when it isn't.
The explanation is very simple. The position we
have acquired as the loading and most successful Dry
Goods bouse is only due to the fact that we give the

The preliminary trial ol Phillip
K. and F. L Hoffman , of Callaway ,
who were charged with disponing of
cattle not belonging to them , WPS
had before Judge Armour last
Thursday. They made no denial of
the charge , but plead extenuating
circumstances , which the Judge
thought was sufficient oauao , and
dismissed the case against them.
The Callaway Courier , in speaking
of the trial , says :
The case of the State against
Hoffman Bros , of Callaway , charged -
d by cattle companies of Omaha
and Kearney with selling cattle
whioh were left with them to feed ,
oamu up in the county court ycstor
day and was dismissed. The evid
ence showed that while the boys
really did dispose of some of the
cattle , as the only means they had
to pay for food bills and damages ,
yet it wes evidently done without
criminal intent , and the judge so
ruled. Brega and Cameron appear *
ed for tliojdofonso , while Kirkpatriok
and Gutteraon ropreaented the atato ,
About a dozen Callaway mon wore
subpoenaed as witnesses.

A mooting of the businoHB mon
of the oily was liohl Saturday morn
ing at lluuuau'a olliuu , with the viovv
of adopting Homo mothocl by whioh
the oily might bo liyhtud by oloo-
tnoity. An organization was
effected by clouting G. L. Tumor
chairman and D. 11. Amsberry hoc-
rotary. After discussing the matter -
tor quito generally it was thought
adviBablo to organize a joint tttook
company to cooperate with the oily
in putting in n plant , with a view
of turning the Htook ever to the
oity at par aa fast aa the tinanooa
would justify the expense. Aa an
induoomout for the business mon to
take Htook it wan thought faatublo
to gunrantoo a oortnin per cent in
lightu on their stock. For instance ,
if ratoa nro ( ixod at sixty cents per
liglit , $7.20 a year , the atookholdor
should bo outitlod to a orodit of 15
per oont , or $1.08. If this plan is
finally adopted it would prove a
good iuvoatmont for all who expect
to UHO olt'Otrio lighta , besides helping -
ing along a laudable ontorpriao. It
wan finally duoidod to refer the
matter to a oommittoo of six , who
wore authorized to draft artiolofi of
incorporation aud make auoh inves
tigations an it should doom WIHO ,
and'roporl to subsequent mooting.
The chair , who wna authorized to
appoint the oornmiltoo , appointed

The coinmittoo organi/.od by ol-
ooting D. M. Amaburry chairman
and L A. Itenoau secretary. The
oommittoo haa had two meotinga
aiuio ita organization , and the work
in progroaaing niooly. The articles
oi incorporation aa drafted ohriaton
the outorpriao under the .name of
the "Ouster County Ehotrioal Co. "
It limita the oxiatonoo of the com
pany 10 thirty yearn , and authorizou
a capital of $20,000 , of which at
leant twenty per cent must bo paid
up before commencing IHIH'IIIUHH.

mitteo wan divided on the question r
of the amount that ahould consti
