A packed house greeted the
Lewis Stock Co. last nierht.
They presented "Nebraska , " a
thrilling military dramain four
acts. This is by far the best
play presented during their en
gagement here. The play deals
with fort life in 1891 at Fort
Niabrara , Neb. , also the Indian
uprising. The play is full of
comedy and thrilling climaxes.
Each member of the company
played their part to perfection.
Their specialties are exception
ally strong. The company has
won a place in the hearts of all
theater goers in South Omaha ,
being the best company that ever
played in our city. Omaha

SIX GOOD. CLEAN 'ENTERTAINMENTS
BROUGHT TO OUR CITY.
SIX SPLENDID ATTRACTIONS.
The Diinhar Company , Judge Brown ,
I'.hna Smith & Co. , Karl Germain ,
Earnest Ray Oncnl , And The
Artist Trio the Numbers.
No one thing , perhaps speaks
so well for a town as does a good
lecture course , and this we are
pleased to announce Broken Bow
has. The course last year was
good , but the attractions which
have been engaged for the
season of 1908-9 , are in our esti
mation superior to last season's
course. The managers or pro
meters of the lecture course are
not bringing these entertain
ments here for the purpose of
making money , but to give our
people a chance to sec and hear
some of the best talent on the
rostrum at a very small cost ,
$2.00 for the six attractions. In
fact those at the head of the
move do not get any pay for the
time they devote in making the
arrangements 'and selling the
tickets , which by the way is no
small job. They'are to be com
mended for their zeal in giving
our people such rare treats and
their labors should be made easy
by everyone lending them a help
ing hand and purchasing season
tickets on the first opportunity.
The following is a list of at
On October 14th , the Dunbar
Co. will be here. This is a male
quartet and their program con
sists ot songs , both classic and
comedy , the playing of many
musical' instruments , among
w'hich are the flute , cello and
piano , and their .magnificent
carillion of nearly two hundred
bells. Added to this is the
character sketches of Harry Dun-
bar whose repertoire covers a
large variety of subjects in as
many different dialects.
Judge Willis Brown will be
here November 18th , and to miss
hearing him will be to miss the
best number of the six attrac
tions. Judge Brown is the ad
vanced exponent of the Juvinile
courts and to his credit it is said
that over a million and a half of
boys and girls in the United
States have signed the American
Anti Cigarete pledge. It is
through Judge Brown's efforts
that the anti-cigerete bill was
passed in Wisconsin , Indiana and
Nebraska. His stories of boy
hood , picture painting of child
hood , pleading for forgiveness
for childish misdeeds , reciting
pathetic stories of children and
driving laughter with wit and
humor is worth the price of
several season tickets. lie is
the boys friend and every young
boy and old boy in Broken Bow
should hear him. The ladies
will go anyway.

that can be found. Miss Smith's
work alone in her imitations of
birds and children are life like
and she will keep her audience
.n continuous laughter and ap
plause whenever she appears.
Miss Rita Rich is also pleasing
in her folk songs of all nations in

Karl Germain , the Wizard ,
will be here on Febuary 8.
Everybody should see him and

which are highly spoken of by
the press of the old country and
the United States. He is assist
ed by Miss Ida Germain at the
piano , and Mr. and. Mrs. Shirley
Braitnewaite , English society
entertainers. There is only one
magician before the public today
who receives a larger salary than
GeYmain and thosewhq j.kaov.f-
say that Germain is liis "equal.
To appreciate his work you must
see it. $
Ernest Wray Oneal one of the
best lecturers on the American
platform is dated for February
19. Mr. Oneal is greeted with
enthusiastic audiences wherever
he goes and the press and pulpit
are loud in their praise of him.
He has several lectures which he
gives , one of which will be de
cided upon later by the com
mittee who have 'the lecture
course in charge.
The last attraction of the
season , but by no means the least
is The Artist Trio , which will
appear before our people on April
1st. The members of the Artist
Trio are Mary Agnes Doyle , * who
is a reader and impersonater with
with whom no fault can be found.
Miss Blanche Deering is a finish
ed artist both on the violin and
piano. Miss Flora McGill is a
a contralto singer of great range
of voice. Their program will
include reading , contralto solos ,
violin solos , piano solos and
duets , etc.
Encourage the promoters , of
the lecture course by buying
your season tickets at once and
aid in making the lecture course
larger and better , if possible for
the next year.

May Get Night Operator.
The chances are good tor Brok
en Bow having a night operator
at the depot , or at least it would
seem that way from a letter re
ceived from the Western Union
Telegraph Co. , by Attorney N.
T. Gadd Tuesday. Mr. Gadd
las been in correspondence with
this company for some time in
reference to this matter , and the
etter informs him that a meet
ing will be held at the Railroad
Commissioners office in Lincoln
on October 1st at 10 o'clock.
Those who are interested in
having a phone at the depot
should see to it that Broken Bow
has a representative in Lincoln

SEVERAL MATTERS DEMANDING ATTEN
TION OF ITS MEMBERS.
TELEPHONE IN DEPOT ONE.
The Sending of Telegrams Afler 7
O'clock at Night Another. Other
Questions Will Arise to lie
There is no bettor town in Ne
braska for its size than Broken
Bow. Our population is fant
Hearing the 3000 mark and our
inhabitants are a thrifty class of
people who want the best there
is going. No town of its size
can show as many nice parks or
any more beautiful lawns or resi
dences or more substantial side
walks. We have seven fine
church buildings , two school
buildings that are a credit to
any town and have a site bought
for a central school building.
We also have a college building
just being finished which is
second to none in the state. Yet
with all these we arc just a litte
behind the times for a city like
The fact that there is no tele
phone connection with the depot
is a detriment to our city in the
minds of strangers who come
here to look over the town and
country with a view of investing
their money. It is not only a
detriment in this way but it is
a great inconvenience to the
patrons of both the telephone
company and the railroad com
pany. Such a state of affairs
should not be in any well regu
lated town and we believe that
the differences between the
companies could be mended if
the Commercial Club would take
up thematter , and do a'llttlcin
vestigating. For this reason , if
none other , the president of the.
club should call a meeting.
No Telegrams can be sent af
ter 7 o'clock at night , no matter
how urgent the case may be.
This to , is something- believe
the Club should take hold of and
urge that a night operator be
given to Broken Bow. A protest
to the proper authorities will no
doubt bring the desired results.
The RiU'unucAN has no fight
to make on either one of the
companies mentioned. Our only
desire is to see Broken Bow and
her people have what they are
entitled to and what by right of
patronage they should have.
Are Talking Sewerage.
Quite a number of our pro
gressive citizens are saying that
Broken Bow should have a sewer ?
age system. They claim that
the cess pools arc becoming too
numerous and when cleaned are
obnoxious to those living close
by. Broken Bow is a modern
town and should have this
modern convenience along with
her other up-to-date improve
