It is related that at a picnic

ning. Some of the boys were

Mrs. O'Mara , a widow lady liv-
ng seven miles north of the city
came to town Wednesday accom
panied by her seven-year old son
to see the street fair. During
: he afternoon the boy strayed
away from his mother and climb
ed onto the high fence surround
ing the count } ' jail in order that
he might see the loop the loop.
He lost his balance and fell into
an open cellar way , sustaining
numerous and severe bruises. His
injuries were dressed , after which
the little fellow was taken to his
Young Men Butted In.
Miss Elizabeth and Misses Elta
and Clara Boose entertained the
members of the Young Ladies
Kensington club of the Presby
terian church on last Friday
evening. The members of the
club came with their kensington
bags well filled with fancy work
and all were busily engaged
when two young men appeared
on the scene. They too , had
Kensington bags and fancy work.
These credentials however were
not recognized by the society and
the male intruders were only
allowed to remain and ply the
needle and crochet hook , after
each had paid a special license
fee of one dollar. While all were
present and busy with the work
in hand , a mail carrier called at
at the house and left a sealed
proposal of marriage to each
maiden lady present. The mem
bers of the club , however , had
reserved the right to reject any
and all bids and the same was
promptly done although the mat
ter furnished much amusement
for all. The evening was spent
in a very pleasent mamier. Re
freshments were served.
Frank Todd came down from
Humboldt Wednesday to attend
the street fair.
The Street Fair.
The street fair has proven a
great success for the Parker
Amusement Co. The aggrega
tion arrived in the city on time
and pitched its tents along Stone
street and the ad jacentsidc streets.
Without exception , the shows
are good and those who patro
nized them have gotten value
received. The free attractions
have been conspicuous by their
absence ami the farmer who lias
come town to see the sights has
found himself in the position of
a man who is invited to a party
and-is then asked to pa } for the
refreshments. The streets have
persented a gala appearance and
the music of the band and the
cry of the spicier have given the
necessary atmosphere to the
street fair. But the carnival was
not what the people expected.
They were led to believe that
there would be free attractions
and that a price would not be put
upon everything in the way of
amusement. The street lair will
not prove a paying proposition
from a business standpoint.
Entertainment has been afforded
to those who cared to pay for it.
It is only from a business point
of view that the street fair has
been unsuccessful for the company
has given clean entertainments
and all connected with it have
conducted themselves in a proper
manner. One can hardly blame
them for getting the best of the
bargain when they are able to

The band is not the best in the
world , but , it is above the average
travelling organization of this
The merry-go-round organ has
attracted considerable attention.
It is a wonderful piece of mech
anism. It is clever mechanical
device in fact it is more interest
ing from a mechanical than from
a musical standpoint.
The necessary apparatus for a
high dive had been installed in
front of Wahl's store , but Tues
day a passing wagon ran into a
guy rope and the damage was
sufficient to put that apparatus
out of commission. A schntc for
the loop-the-gap act was then
erected and a man mounted on a
bicycle has performed this thrill
ing feat every day to the delight
of the assembled multitudes.
A Falls City wan who ought to
know , says that the Katzenjam-
mer castle idea was originated
by some poor devil , "in the cold
gray dawn of the morning after. "
Those ice cream sandwiches
are doubtless very good , but the
person eating one appears about
as awkward as a man eating
green corn from the cob.
The trip to the Alps was very
entertaining. Mechanical in
genuity assisted by a healthy
imagination enabled the beholder
to duly appreciate the spectacle.
The statue turning to life is an
old illustion but never fails to en
tertain and mystify.
A young man and woman from
Dawson were riding on the Ferris
wheel Tuesday night. "Would't
it be nice , " said the young man
as they reached the top of the
wheel , "if wecould ride this way
through life together ? " He fol
lowed the question with a more
direct proposal , but just then the
wheel stopped and the young lady ,
taking it as a bad sign , turned
down his propo'sition.
On last Thursday County Judge
Wilhite performed the ceremony
uniting in marriage Samuel
Knowles and Sadie G. Wing.both

Congressman Pollard Married.
lion. E. M. Pollard , the newly
elected congressman from the
first district and Gertrude Wat-
tcrman were married at the home
of the bride's parents in Omaha
on Tuesday evening. The ro
mance which led to the marriage
begun in Lincoln some time ago
and while in the midst of the
recent congressional campaign ,
Mr. Pollard was also making
plans for the important step that
has just been taken. The con
gressman-elect and h i s bride
have left for a trip to the Pacific
No Law Suit.
Under the above caption the
last issue of the.Journal related
an alleged attempt on the part
of a local lawyer to involve the
city in a law suit with the Jesse
James show. Of course the ac
count was a baseless falsehood.
The proprietor of the show did
seek advice ol a lawyer with
reference to his rights in the
matter and was told that he
could sue out a mandamus to
compel the mayor to sign the
the show license , but in as much
as the application would have
to be time enough to get the
writ signed as no judge of that
court was in the city. Judge
Wilhite says that the state
ment of the Journal to the effect
that he was asked to issue an in
junction is not correct , as no
such request was made by any
one. If the legal department
of that paper would stop and
think for a moment he would
know that no lawyer would ask
for an injunction in the case
\vhere the thing required is com
pel action and not to restrain
action. We might add further
that if the Journal is correct is
saying that industry tends to in
crease a lawyers , business , that
it would not be a bad idea for
its legal department to get busy.
Warm Time at Council Meeting.
In response to an invitation
from the mayor all of the clergy
men of the city together with
a number of our msot representative -
ative citizens met with the coun
cil Monday evening to remon-
state over the gambling and
other illegal tilings now taking
place in this city. The mayor
was in consultation with
Francis Martin on the steps of
the German church immediate-
before the session , and from
what we learn was loaded for
bear when the show commenced.
We have been unable to get the
the exact facts but one the part

most of his time in lauding him

abusing us and The Tribune. 1

-expect and had the satisfaction
of saying I told you so after the
adjournment. " It is to be re
gretted that the present condi-
