\ Calif. Mr. Lawson. Jiopes to get his
affairs in shape to enable him and family
to start for their new homo in California
about the 10th proximo.
Cashier Lawson's character and abili
ties have not only placed him at the
active head of the greatest financial in
stitution in Southwestern Nebraska , but
have endeared him to a wide circle of
admiring and trusting friends. His
coining departure will bo regretted by
no one more keenly than by THB TKIIIUXK
No formal action has yet been taken
rV by the board of directors , but the suc
cession of Ass't Cashier Pennell to , the
cashierehip is practically certain ; also
Book-keeper Louis Thorgrimson's ad
vancement to ass't cashier and cage
work. No selection has been made for
the book-keepership , but the matter is
now under consideration.
In Californian Mr. Lawson will con
tinue with Mr. Hocknell in business ,

other interests there.

a farewell gift of cut glass , aiich , hand
some and elegant gift , embracing a
water set of three pieces , berry and
finger bowls , set of sherbet glasses , olive

with the directors , officers and employes
and the public as well.

Are Not "Suckers. "
Dr. C. L. Fahnestock's peculiar con
duct , nights , of late , has been a source
of some curiosity to his neighbors and
friends not to say , some apprehension.
But all suspicion has been happily al
layed. It seems that back in Illinois
the fish-worms have an accommodating
tiabit of coming to the surface , nights ,
to enjoy the moonlight and the dewey
eve , and are promptly swiped by the
iisherinen , for bait on the morrow. The
doctor has been producing a little moon
light with a lantern to fool the local
angle-worms out to surrender themselves ,
forgetting that he had removed from
A Premature Alarm.
The curfew whistle , Tuesday evening ,
was premature and was mistaken by the
department and populace for a fire alarm ,
[ t was not intended that the alarm
should be given until the public had
been given due notice in the city press.
Tuesday evening's alarm was sounded
through a misunderstanding. It is the
purpose of the city authorities to enforce
the curfew ordinance , however , and 9:30
p. m. is the time when the ordinance
3ecomes effective. Children found on
the streets after that time will be arrest
ed and fined as provided in the ordi
nance now in force.

It is pitiful to hear some of the stories
of the cruel we might say savage de
struction of birds in and about the city.
We hope to help form a sentiment among
adults and children which will make
such cruelties impossible. A society for
the purpose might not be amiss.
As to the Fraternal Memorial sugges
tion , it will bear remembering and can
be worked out successfully.
