At tbe North opera boase the talented
yoaag actor Elwin Strong aad his com
paay of players will opes a three Bighta
eagageeaeot, Thursday, Nor. 14th. Mr.
8troog, who is a fiaished actor, has for
the paat two seasons starred in Dr
Jakyll aad Mr. Hyde, and will this sea
son present a repertoire of standard
plays, still retaiaiag Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde as his feature bilL Tbe Columbus
public will bo doubt be pleased to learn
that Mr. Strong baa secured as bis lead
ing support this season the clever actress
Miss Kathrin Dale, who is a Columbus
girl. Miss Dale has made rapid strides
in her profession, and Mr. Strong is for
tunate in securing her services. This
company carries its own aipeoial scenery
aad electrical "effects, so that each play
presented will be a complete production.
Refined vaadiville will be introduced
between the acta, doing away with
tedioas waits. The plays selected for
this engagement are as follows: Tliars
day night the beautirul 4 act comedy
drama "The Night Before Christmas.''
Friday night the rural drama, "The,
Winning Hand," and Saturday night tbe
great play, and Mr. Strong's master
piece, "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."
The meeting of tbe oounty commission
ers of Polk county with the board of
supervisors of this county Thursday re
salted in clearing the eitua'ion regarding
mainlainenceof tbe Platte bridge, as con
templated by the law .panood by the
last legislature. Asa result' of the con
ference, Polk county expressed a will
ingness to contribute one-fourth of the
expense of taking care of the bridge, if
Platte county would pay one-half of the
expense. This proposition by Polk
county was made without any condition
I as to whether .Butler county would be a
party to. the contract, but no written
agreement was made until Butler oounty
has been heard from. While the law
requires that each county shall sU ,.d an
equal share,under present conditions the
supervisors considered the proposition
presented by Polk county as a fair one,
and it will jn all probability be accepted.
Last Saturday morning about five
o'clock Policeman Wm. Baker discovered
Chris Smith lying in front of Q. H. Lan
doa'a furniture store in an unconscious
condition. He at once notified officer
Nelson, and they had. him taken to the
city jail, as they supposed he was under
the influence of liquor. A short time
after a phvsician was called and he pro
nounced Chris dead. For the last week
or two the deceased had been rooming
over the First National Bank in one of
Buschman's rooms, and has been sick.
The supposition is that he started for
his home and when he got to where he
was lying could get no further and re
mained there until found. The funeral
was held Tuesday morning at the Cath
olic church and burial was in the
Catholic cemetery.

tbe tender age of 8 to 18 aad there
about, to roamoa the street uatil 11 aad
12 o'clock at night. Peeping ia the win

obaoenelaaguage; writing filthy sent
ences on the sidewalks; damaging pro
perty and cauaiag all kinds, of other
troubles too aameroua to meatioa.
Nowtbadiaeoamfort the folks suffer
by it is not the worst feature of it. there
is a moral aide to it which is of a mora
serious nature. What will becoaseof
such children that are so neglected by
their parents. The inmates of our re
form schools and neniteutaries with
very few exceptions started their down
fall in the very same manaer loaftae; in
daytime, and what ia worse at night.
, Curfew lawa have been ensoted in
many towns to cure tbe evil. This
measure ia opposed by some, claiming to
be an old fashioned, arbitrary, good
enough for the.dark middle ages law.
While I see nothing wrong in a law that
would further morality if even it waa a
little ''old-fashioned," I still hope that
it will not have to be found necessary to
ring tbe curfew in our town. It would
be a stain on the fair name of Columbus.
"No extreme measure is enacted with
out sufficient cause' that would be tbe
judgement of our sister cities.
I would appeal to the parents, .of our
town to keep their children home at
night. Make them learn 'their leasona
for the next day, then play with them
like a child amongst children aad send
tbem betimes to bed. I assure you,
your children will no more long for
street loafing if you treat them as their
friend, playmate and companion. I speak
from personal .experience, and that ia
why I an so .confident that you will
succeed as -well as I did. Remember
that loafingmakesa mean boy. A mean
boy io due time tarns out a bad citizen.
Good home influence does more to bring
the children up right than all else pat
