A Royal Slave
With all its wealth of special
scenery gorgeous costumes and
bright and catchy specialties is
the attraction at the Temple the
atre Thursday night This piece
which has attained such an envi
able reputation and secured
sueh a hold on the hearts of the
atregoers from one end of this
bread land to the other is from
the pen of Mr iOlarence Bennett
author of the Ilolv City and
The Warning Bell and other
notable successes Mr Bennett
has located his scenes near the
city of Mexico and based the fab
ric of the play on events which
jifttnnllv oftpnrred d urine the-
brief reign of the unfortunate i
Emperor Maximiliian The great
treasure the secret of which was
as loyally and jealously guard
ed by El Aguila The Eagle who
although a sorf traced his lineage
from rthe royal Montezumas is
founded on fact The success of
itliis piece has been so phenome
nal in America that the firm has

Friday Primary Day
The disclosure has been mad
that the state wide primary to be
held in Nebraska next year un
der the new law enacted by the
state legislature will fall on Fri
day April 19 which is a decid
ed departure from the customary
Tuesday election day wliich has
almost invariably prevailed The
law does not say that the pri
mary shall be held on a particu
lar day or date but defines the
time as the 45th day before the
first Monday in June every
fourth year when presidential
candidates are to be chosen leav
ing it on the third Tuesday in
August for all other years This
makes the date variable in each
ease although the day remains
certain and must be on Friday
in presidential years and a Tues
day in each intervening year

Street East
The residence of Conductor E
M Cox was considerably damag
ed Friday night by fire and wat
er The fire originated in and
was confined to the rear end of
the house over the kitchen but
how it originated is still unknowx
or undecided It was first
thought to have been caused by
defective wiring but Mr Panten
burg of MeCook Electric Co
tested out the lines and is con
vinced the electric wiring was
not responsible
Wliile there is some damage to
the building and contents from
fire perhaps the chief loss is
from water plastering etc be
ing especially a sufferer
The fare was confined to three
rear rooms the bath room and
two bed rooms all of them being
somewhat charred the bath room
probably the worst
Mr Cox was in the house at
tii time the fire was discovered
as the smoke from upstairs pene
trated to the lower floor ne
had just started to heat an elec
tive light iron Mrs Cox was ab
sent from the city on a visit
About six oclock on Saturday
morning another fire alarm was
sounded this time the call going
in from the Benjamin residence
2nd street east- Eph was engag
ed in the laudable work of build
ing the morning fire in the kitch
en range when an explosion of
oil gasoline or coal added a lit
tle more enthusiasm and energy
to the occupation than was seem
ly to Mr Benjamin who did not
entirely escape injury The dam
age fortunately was small the
fire being controlled without
much difficulty or loss
Tha Servant in the House Was
Generously greeted
The Servant in the House is
one of the strong plays of the
stage of today with food for re
flection and inspiration for bet
ter things for making more prac
tical the teachings of the golden
ride for following more closely
and precisely the teachings of
the meek and lowly Galileean
This dramatization of Kennedys
novel is keenly and bitterly sat
irical against the commercialism
the hypocrisy and the caste of
the church and seeks a fairer ex
pression of the brotherhood of
man its creed is I love God
and ALL my brothers
So even a small appreciation
of the production requires one to
go beyond the symbolic drain
to a contemplation of the dead
mens bones etc in the pulpit
pew and choir
