Chicago Lady Quartette ,
and expectant audience in the
Congregational church , Saturday even
ing , under the magic influence and de
lightful singingof the ladies of the Chicago -
cage quartette , quickly changed into an
enthusiastic and thoroughly pleased
.gathering. No one was disappointed ;
Ulie ladies are vocal artists , and their
ole work is as fine as their quartette
selections. The program from start to
finish was greatly enjoyed , many of the
.numbers being roundly encored , and responses
of them. The
sponses were sung to most .
recitations by Miss Bolkcom were as
thoroughly appreciated Her efforts are
in keeping with the rest of the highly
.meritorious work of the company. A
Uarge and enthusiastic hearing awaits
tltem any time they may return to our
city. They appeared under auspices of
the Endeavor society.
" Merry , Merry Christmas. "
'The entertainment held in the opera
"house , last evening , by the pupils of the
primary grades of our city schools at
tracted an immense audience , the house
being crowded. An operetta entitled
"Merry , Merry Christmas" was ren
dered by the little ones with great satis
faction and pleasure to the audience ,
and a large sum was realized for the
purchase of charts , books etc. , for the
use of the children of the primary grades
participating in the operetta. The chorus
and solo music , the drills , tableaux , and
the performance throughout was very
creditable to the little ones and to those
who by infinite care and patience di
rected the children in their efforts. All
are entitled to great credit on the result
.of the entertainment.
He Got Big Game.
* It was a puzzle 10 his associates in the
First National bank the unhappy look
on Assistant Cashier Pennell's counte
nance first of the week , until his o'er-
ilowiug heart burst out in confession.
He did it with his little gun. It appears
that Fred a-hunting went , very early in
the week , while the other nimrods rest
ed ; and that lie got so excited at the
prospect of a fine pot-shot that he did
not notice that his fine hunting dog was
mixed up in the bunch. As a result the
< log got the most of the lead and only
survived a few minutes. And Fred has
n't been happy since. THE TRIBUNE
doesn't vouch for the accuracy of the
particulars of this dog-astrophe , but
Fred is shy a prized dog , just the same.
In the County Jail.
Word from Clay Center , Clay county ,
announces that Edward Lorenz has been
arrested for stealing a horse and buggy
and that he is now in the jail of that
coutitv , having been bound over to await
the action of the next term of the dis
trict court. The supposition is that the
person in question is the same individual
who was convicted for the murder of
ZHichael Travers in this county , and af
terwards at a new trial released.
A Life Sentence.
The trial of Andrew Hawkins , for the
murder of James Jansen ended at Stock-
Yille , early part of the week. After due
and thorough deliberation the jury
brought in a verdict of guilty and placed
the sentence at imprisonment for life.
The verdict seems to give very general

New Schedule Announced.
General Passenger Agent Francis o
the B. & M. has returned to Chicago
where he had been in conference will
officials of the C. , B & Q relative to the
new mail trains to be put on the first o
the year. On his return he announced
officially the time of the new trains
across Iowa and also some of the changes
that would be made on the Burlingtoi
in Nebraska to conform to the new
train arrangement. The first of the new
fast mail trains will leave Council Bluffs
for Chicago on January ist , and the first
new train out of Chicago will leave there
on January 2d. At the present time
Burlington train No. 7. earring the fast
mail from Chicago to Omahais the fast
est train between the two cities. II
makes the run in eleven hours and forty
minutes The new eastbound train will
make the same run in ten hours and
twenty-five minutes , while the new west
bound train will cover the 500 miles in
ten hours and forty-five minutes. The
new westbound train will leave Chicago
at 9:15 p. in. daily and will arrive in
Omaha at 8 a. m. daily. It will appear
on the time card as train No. 19 , and
will be composed of a locomotive and
mail cars only. It will carry no passen
gers. It will bring the bulk of the day's
business mail from Chicago and also the
eastern mail , which it will receive from
the new mail train of the Lake Shore
road , arriving in Chicago at 8:30 p. m.
The new eastbound train of the Burling
ton route will leave the transfer station
in Council Bluffs at 3:50 p. in. daily. It
will arrive in Chicago at 2:15 a. m daily ,
connecting there with the eastbound
mail trains of the Lake Shore and Penn
sylvania ( Ft. Wayne route ) roads , which
leave for Chicago at 2:45 a- nidaily. .
The present fast mail train of the Bur
lington from Chicago to Council Bluffs ,
No. J , will be changed to run through to
Omaha. It will leave Chicago as at
present at 3 a. m. and will arrive in
Omaha at 2:50 p. m. It is not known
low long this train will be continued in
service , but it is not believed the post-
office department will pay for two fast
niail trains from Chicago to Omaha long.
The changes in mail train time in Iowa
will of course cause changes to corres-
Dond in Nebraska. It is probable that
the time of No. 5 , westbound , will be a
few minutes later than at present , and
will probably arrive in Lincoln about
n a. m. No. 3 will probably be ten
minutes earlier , arriving in Lincoln at
5:45 instead of 5:55. It is stated tnatNo.
2 , eastbound , will probably leave Lincoln
an hour earlier in the afternoon , to con-
icct with the eastbound mail train from
Council Bluffs. There may be other
changes , but they have not been an
nounced. Lincoln Journal.
