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.

Peeping ia the win down of residences; stealiag fruit; using 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 together. A Fathkr. Gerrard and Wills are going to put up a large, corn cnb.
