By those in charge of the recep
tion to William J. Bryan on his
return from his 'round-the-world
trip it is said that the Nebraskan
will be the busiest politician in
America during the first few days
of his arrival. It is estimated that
he will address upward of 200,000
persons assembled in formal gath
erings and as many more in in
formal speeches made from rail
Mr. Bryan realizes that he will
have no time for rest until he has
been back home for at least two
weeks , but he has said that he does
not need rest. He demonstrated
during his two campaigns for the
presidency that what was work
to many was recreation to him ,

A number of Indians were in town
this week sending their children
away to school at Haskell , Genoa
and Eapid City.
Mrs. Geo. Hornby and daugh
ter Helen returned home yester
day morning from Omaha , where
they visited a few days. They
were accompanied by a Mrs. Den
nis of Omaha who is visiting Mrs.
Homer Tait and Roy Young of
Brownlee are in town today on land
business. Honier tells us that sev
eral weeks ago a hail storm struck
his place and ruined a fine garden
and about six acres of oats for him ,
besides several acres of meadow hay.
He says the hail drifted several feet
deep in places , and that four days
afterward he found enough to freeze
that in Madison Square garden. It
is predicted that all records for
crowding will be broken in the
neighborhood of the big amphi
theatre on the night of August 30.
Requests have already been re
ceived for double the number of
seats the garden holds , and they
are still pouring in. It is to pre
vent utter disappointment to the"
multitude that Mr. Bryan will ad
dress'the overflow at the close of
the regular meeting.
Everything indicates also that
the parade of Mr. Bryan and his
adherents , from the Battery to the
upper part of the city , will be one
of the most noteworthy demon
strations of its kind ever witnessed
in New York. Ticket speculators
have been active for two weeks
buying up windows along the line
* * * *
Indications are that there will be
in New York during the latter
days of the month more visitors
than have assembled here at any
one time in many years. Through
out the west , middle west and
south railroads are advertising ex
cursion rates to the Bryan recep
tion , and their agents report that
the sale of tickets is unprecedented.
Hotels have already received re
quests for more rooms than they
have and are still being flooded
with letters. New York Herald.
The weeds of our city are growing so fast ,
One hardly can walk on our sidewalks at last ;
They grow in profusion at the edge of the walk ,
And our friend , Mr. Barker , does nothing but talk.
His ambitions loom upward , to thoughts in the air ,
Where sidewalks on trussles will be free from care.
He wants us to build them of cement or brick ,
But the city can use cinders , you see the trick ;
For crossings on alleys it won't come so high ,
So the city and Barker gets off with a sigh :
For Barker has fenced up his walk , don't you know
Or the place for the walk so the people can't go.
They must all walk 'round him , because it is he
That , is running this town , just for you and me.
His cellars on Main street , and projecting step ,
Are not to be noticed by others by-jep !
What ! "Pit-falls ? " and "man-holes ? " did I hear you say ?
Well , it's Barker , you see , and he's having his day.
But laws of our city must now be obeyed ,
Except , of course , those who our laws have displayed.
For the honor that's bright as a silver cup
Why , who on that board ; that would vote to close up
The wide gaping holes that endanger your life-
Would anyone do it ? No ! Not on your life !

Leroy Springer and fa mily have

Mr. Springer was in town the first
of the week. Miss Springer will
remain in our city for the present.
The doors and windows of many
of the buildings at Fort Niobrara
have been thrown open and have
remained so since the departure of
the 25th Inf. , as if inviting dilapi
dation and destruction.
Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Webb are
rejoiciag over the arrival of a fine
baby boy at their home , born last

Webb is the proprietor of the

needed help with his work often
times and is looking forward to
the time when the boy can be of
assistance to him. -

As an article of food , soda crackers are being used more and
more every day , as is attested by the sale of nearly 400,000,000
packages of U need a Biscuit , which have come to be recog

And so U need a Biscuit will soon be on every table at
