A RUN ON MUTTON
Ed Morgan Sustains a Big Loss
Last Sunday
On last Sunday afternoon, Ed
Morgan, who lives on a farm
near Straussville, lost 103 head
of sheep by the train on the Mis
souri Pacific running into them.
The trouble came from a weak
fence, through which the herd
found it w?ay. The fence is the
property of the railroad, and Mr.
Morgan had notified them of its
weak condition, but to no avail,
and the above loss is the result,
which falls pretty heavy on Mr.
Morgan.
Substantial Improvements
Sidney Spence, landlord at
the National, is superintending
some substantial improvements
being made this week at his
popular hotel in the way ol a
tine heating plant. A new 40
horse power boiler- is being in
stalled and the work will be
finished this week. •■Sid"’ is
always looking after the com.
tort of his guests and with this
new heating plant in place, the

no terrors for the guests at the
National.

ings next Tuesday and Wednes

a glance at the splendid repair
in which all the books are kept
in our library, is convincing
proof that Miss Spencer is com
petent to handle the subject as
signed her, and will give her
hearers much valuable informa
tion.
How's This For Corn?
]f you want to see a ‘‘bumper”
stalk of corn you ought to call at
the office of Whitaker Bros., in
the State Bank building and see
one taken from the field of Christ
Madowse, living twelve and one
half miles north of Falls City.
This stalk" measures 16 feet in
length and the enr is ten feet
above the ground. If Mr. Mad
ouse’s field is all like this stalk we
are of the opinion that it would
take a pretty tall man to reach the
ear to husk it.
Money
Several thousand dollars of
private funds to loan on good
farm security. Want to place it
out at once- Henky C. Smith
IN FAIRY LAND
THE OPERETTA PROVED A
GREAT SUCCESS
A Large Crowd in Attendance and
All Were Well Pleased
The operetta. “Fairy Land,
under the direction of Miss Rose,
given Wednesday evening tor the
benefit of the Episcopal church
was one of the very best
borne talent entertainments ever
given in this cits. There was a
good crowd in attendance and ev
eryone was well pleased
It is impossible to mention
each of the eighty-seven in the
cast, as they justly deserve, but
suffice it to say that it is hard to
understand how such perfection
was attained in less than two
week’s preparation
The choruses were all strong,
while the solos were of the best,
and each of the specialties were
so well received that they were
forced to respond to encores.
Great credit is due each one for
their hard work and faithfulness
in carrying the affair to such a
successful end. Miss Rose as an
instructor has no superior, while
as a reader she can be classed
with the best, ranging from
tragedy to comedy with such
vivid portrayal as to make her a
decided success. On Wednesday
evening she gave several readings
which were great treats.
All in all “Fairy Land ' was a
success, and as a result a neat
little sum was added to the church
treasury.
“Jane Eyre."
In the new Rowland and Cl if.
ford production “.Jane Eyre"
which will be seen at the Geld
ing there is a great deal of true
dramatic strength and power,
without resorting to clap-trap.
The scene in the third act, where
Jane leaves Rochester, is one
that holds it.-, audience breath
less. and proves that there is as
much strength and power to
hold in a quiet tense scene as in
the most extravagant mechani
cal impossibility ever born from
an over fervid imagination. It
an interesting story and well
told, probably one of the best
plays of its kind ever presented
en lour. The lines are bright,
the action is kaleidoscope, and
the climaxes are orought out as
a natural sequence of the lines
and business. This should
prove Manager Gehling’s best
offering this season. Friday,
October 16.
Made Gun Play
J. A. Massengale of Verdon
stirred up a little trouble at that
place Monday evening and in the
mixup which followed made a
pretty strong gun play. lie was
placed under arrest and Sheriff
Fenton sent for, who brought
him to this city Tuesday and
given a hearing before Judge
Sprugins, who handed him a
little package labeled thirty days
in jail.
Question For the Eighth Grade
The Bryan men hollow loud
when stocks drop a few points,
as an index that Bryan stock is
going up in the political market.
Now if stocks drop 4'.' points in
a day because Bryan stock is on
a boom; what will be the falling
power of stocks, wages and farm
products after he is elected. A
new mouse trap will be given for
the best answer

BRYAN IS MERE
THE PEERLESS" GREETED BY
E1G CROWD OF THE FAITHFUL
fvlada a Twenty-Minute Stop and
Delivered His Talk in the Court
House Yard
The democrats had their in
nings on Thursday and Were cor
respondingly happy. B r y a n.
their god, was here, and all wor
shiped at his shrine. A large
crowd was in the city, but not
what was expected, due possibly
to the fact that Mr. Brvan spoke
in many of the nearby towns, and
also that a hard wind was blow
ing which made travel very dis
agreeable. The speaker arrived
on a special over the B. .V M- and
was met by a delegation who es
corted him in automobiles, to the
band stand in the court house
yard where the crowd was waiting
to hear what he had to say. As
to the speech, we go to press too
early to comment on it- but feel
safe in sainvg that it was the
same which we have all heard so
manv times.
There was a special run from
Hiawatha which brought a big
delegation from Brown county.
Up to the time of going to press
this c\as the _onlv special train
which arrived.
If anything of importance oc
curs during the remainder of the
day, we promise our readers a re
port of the same next week.

AN ART EXHIBIT
An Opportunity to See A Fine
Display of Paintings
Stored away in tile great mu
seums of art, are the original
works of great masters Bon
heur’s wonderful animal paint
ings are there; Landseers life like
'dogs; Millet's pathetic stories of
the peasants but it rarely be
comes the privilege of any of us
to set- the work as the master left
it on the canvas.
However the Horace K. Turn
er Co., have made themselves
famous by the well nigh perfect
copies of the great paintings they
have made and a collection of
about 200 of these Turner prints,
under the auspices of the public
school are to be on display in the
council rooms over the library
Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct.
20 and 21 from 2 to 3:30 in the
afternoon and from 7 to 10 in the
evening of each day. Each even
ing an interesting program will
be rendered.
1 he entire proceeds are to he
expended for pictures, which will
be used to decorate the walls of
the various school rooms. This
exhibit has been made in New
York. Boston, Minneapolis and
many other large cities.
The Boston Transcript had this
to say of the exhibit when it was
on display iii that classic city:
“Commencing today, and contin
uing one week, there will be held
at the galleries of the Boston Art
Club an exhibition of pictures I
suitable for the decorations of
schoolrooms. It is due to the
energy of the director of drawing
that educators and their friends
are able to see this collection of
1 reproductions. the' f!f?.‘st ’ever1
gathered together in this country.
The pictures are finely mounted
and hung, and afford an excellent
opportunity to view the fields of
reproductiveart available fur this
purpose.’’ 1
This is a rare opportunity to
see and become titled with
the masters of art, and to aid in
hanging on the walls of our
school rooms pictures radiating
such character as was SirCIala

GAVE FINE TALK
CONGRESSMAN SCOTT , GREET
ED BY FAIR SIZED CROWD
>i in
Touched Upon the Issues of the
Day in a Most Convincing
Manner
On last Monday evening a
fairly good sized audience greet
ed Congresman Scott at 'die
court house, and listened to a
discussion of the political issues
from a republican viewpoint.
Congressman Scott is from the
second Kansas district, and is
the present chairman of the com
mittee on agriculture, rtf which
Congressman Pollard is also a
member.
The speaker touched 'general
ly on most ol the issues of the
campaign, hut gave mdre par
ticular attention to the tariff
question, making it quite clear
that while the republicans are
for a revision of the present
schedules, they will retain the
principle of protection to Am
erican industries, seeking to
ad just the rates so as to have
the tariff, as nearly as possible,
represent tile difference in cost
of production in this and'toreign
countries. The democrats de
sire to revise the tariff along
the lines of a tariff for revenue
only, or more commonly desig
nated as free trade.
It was clearly shown that
while the republicans are in
favor of providing a Market in
which to obtain good prices lor
what we sell, the'Opposition are
urging a policy the main argu
ment of which is that we will
be able 10 buy cheap, us was
demonstrated lrom 1 Hvm to 1*!17,
when we were under tlieWilson
Gorman tariff law.
Tlie speaker also said in sub
stance: Some years agoja ruler
placed his.business interests in
the hands'of a party for ; period
pfi'our years with lull control
and management ttierecf, and
at the expiration of the ime an
accounting wasdemandei . The
account shows an increase of
debt for running experses of
$262,000,000, buddings dilapi
dated, furnace tires out, Coxey
armies marching through the
land, labor unemployed mort
gages being foreclosed, agricul
tural productions selling below
actual cost of production, and
people going hungry while
wheat was selling at 4o rents a
bushel.
1 Th« tuUjT, (the people on the
showing ^jnade dismissed the
party and selected another to
look after his business interests.
And -now the time is at fiand tor
another accounting. What can
be shown to the credit of the
present management. I ational
debt decreased $l(X)JoOO,000,
vast projects under cons ruction
buildings in good repsir, fur
naces age blazing, Ooxey’s
army disbanded, labor veil em
ployed; mortgages releas ed, live
, stock and agricultural products
selling at very renuii erative
' prices: property of al kinds
| double in value; a people pros-;
I perous, contented and | happy"
