The Tale of How we Live , You Will
Find HerdTrue and Trite.
A History Complete Throughout ,
and Told as You will Say ,
Of This we Have N't E'en a Doubt ,
in an Interesting Way.
A Small Riot.
An intoxicated detachment of "Little
Russia" indulged in a small riot , Christmas -
mas eve , in , front of Menard's store. It
is stated that there was some lively
scrapping between a number of young
Russians , the echo of a quarrel that
commenced in one the houses of ill re-
pnte over the payment of the price of a
bottle of beer.
Night Policeman Coglizer was not
numerous enough to promptly quell the
disturbance , which is said to have reached -
ed considerable proportions at one time.
But no one was seriously hurt in the
street rumpus. And a sore head is the
sum total of injury received in the opening -
ing of the ball in the palace of sin.
The Mean Thing.
It is said that a man who won't buy
a paper because he can borrow one has
invented a machine by which he can
cook his dinner by the smoke of his
neighbor's chimney. The same fellow
sits in the back pew in church to save
interest on contributions , and is always
borrowing a ride to town to save the
wear and tear of bis own horseflesh.
Yes , you know him. He's a first cousin
to the man who never winds up his
watch for fear of breaking the spring.
He undoubtedly was a near relative of
the man who went into the back yard
during a cold snap , last winter , soaked
his hair in water , let it freeze , and theu
broke it off in order to cheat the barber
out of a hair cut.
Isham on India.
The lecture by Rev. G. R. Isham , pastor -
tor of the Methodist church at Hastings ,
! j a late returned missionary , on the subject -
ject of India , in the Methodist church ,
Christmas evening , was very instructive ,
interesting and at quite' frequent intervals -
vals aniusing. The many curiosities
displayed attracted much attention and
marked interest. The Indian marriage
in costume was a feature. Mahommedan
costumes was also displayed. The attendance -
tendance was fair , but the lecture merited -
ited a fuller house. The reverend gentleman -
tleman had also placed his experience ,
. , observations etc. , while in India , in book
" - form ; and of these books he sold a num-
her while here.
A Little Family Disturbance.
Henry Gale , tenant on the Canutli irrigated -
rigated farm , was arrested on Friday afternoon -
ternoon last , for assault and battery , at
the instance of his daughter , Mrs. I. T.
Birdsall , Mr. Gale plead guilty and was
fined $5 and costs. It was a little family -
ly disturbance , which ought not to have
been made public.
A Few Articles Left.
There are still quite a fetiv bargains to
be secured in queensware at the old Au-
derson store room. They are disposing
of that stock at unheard of prices.
Don't fail to call and secure what you
want in that line before the stock is
closed out entirely. A few more days
will do it.

Great Event Modestly but
Joyously Celebrated
While the People Generally indulged -
ed In Turkey Dinners and
Family Reunions.
It was a quiet day. It was a crisp ,
bright day as to weather-cool and bracing -
ing , but lacking the needful snow for a
typical Christmas day. Business places
were closed early , and the population
settled down to quiet dinner parties and
little reunions. It was a home Christmas -
mas day. The least ostentatious in
years-but a hopeful one.
Part of the church exercises were held
on Christma's eve , the remainder on
Christmas night. Each and all were
well attended and full of interest.
People held their exercises on Christ-
urns eve. Au interesting and varied literary -
erary and musical program was rendered
in all acceptable manner. There were
some suitable decorations , a cabin and a
Santa Claus , who at the proper time distributed -
tributed sweetmeats among the members
of the Sunday school. The church was
well filled and the audience generally
pleased with the efforts put forth.
Also rendered their program on Christmas -
mas eve. Their exercises were literary
and musical in character as well ; and
Santa Claus distributed his favors from
a cabin in a generous , hearty fashion.
Besides the childrea received a fine treat
from the bounty of the Sunday school.
The program was well rendered and re-
ceived. The decorations were simple
and suggestive. The church was crowded -
ed and everybody was happy ,
People , too , held their exercises on
the eve of the Saviors natal day. A
pleasing program was effectively given
and a Christmas tree made the hearts of
the little ones happy , with its burden of
gifts and toothsome articles. These exercises -
ercises were well attended and joyously
They had the usual solemn masses ,
Christmas morning-three at different
periods , commencing as an early hour ,
which were largely and devoutly at-
tended. In the evening they had a tree
for the Sunday school. There were presents -
ents and good things galore-all of which
was preceded by an appropriate and enjoyable -
joyable program , making a happy occasion -
sion , withal.
A very pleasant fifteen minutes was
spent at the Baptist Bible school , Sunday
morning , at the conclusion of the regu-
bar lesson of the day , in the distribution
of the usual Christmas gifts. Owing tea
a disappointment in getting the programs -
grams it was impossible to have the exercises -
ercises in the evening as contemplated.
The attendance at the morning service ,
it is needless to say , was large. W.
Thus closed a modest Christmas without -
out special incident or much display.
Thursday's Lincoln Journal states that
a new method of evaporating sugar beet
juice bids fair to revolutionize sugar
making and several other industries
where getting rid of surplus water
cheaply and expeditiously is the object.
It will also make practical the plan of
having many small , plants to produce
raw sugar , which can then be sent to
central refineries. It will thus give an
impetus to the general culture of beets ,
making markets convenient and saving
freight and deterioration in transporta-
Some delay may be experienced in enforcing -
forcing the new Torrens law in Chicago
because of the expense of the extra
clerkships required by the new system.
It will require a little more work in the
county offices for a time , but in the end
the public will save a great deal of
money. It would not be fair to allow
today's economical streak to impose an
unnecessary tax upon the land transfers
of tomorrow.
The new A. 0. U. W. rituals , adopted
at the meeting of the supreme lodge in

which is very largely the product of H.
\V. Cole of our city.

A Sad Christmas for Them.
Early Tuesday morning the little two-

brief illness. The dear one had been
sick with inflammation of the bowels
and was apparently recovering. But on
Monday night the child was taken with
severe spasms and on the following
morning at five o'clock death came to
