The iMtk Omaha Way of Doing it.
Tony Gubick and Frank Zatick were
arrested on a charge of being drunk and
indecent on the streets yesterday after
noon. Their conduct was praticularly
offensive to Mrs. L. E. Williams who
was in a buggy at Twenty-sixth and N
streets, while her husband was making a
purchase. She complained and he pur
sued the two and brought them back.
He told his wife to give them what she
thought they deserved, whereupon she
gave Tony Gubick five or six upper cuts
in the face which left it a practical
wreck. His left eye was dosed, his nose
puffed like a mushroom and his lips mis
shapen before the police arrived. Mrs.
Williams was once a clever boxer in an
athletio class and did not spare her
knowledge. Mr. Williams is a very
powerful man and told the police he did
not dare to strike the men for fear he
would lose his head and maim them.
He said he knew his wife could admin
ister plenty of punishment so he made
them stand and take their beating.
The trial of Wm. Severn, charged with

Pastor Parker failed to go to Columbus,
and go into the real estate business. The
real estate business is so good, and thou
sands of dollars change bands every day.
Little Polk is pretty well satisfied that
she can run her schools without the aid
of any licensed saloon money, when she
can get plenty of school children, for she
has within her borders just now, 3,560
children and the semi-Annual appropria
tion is $3,230.51.
The fellows that look after such things
say there will be fifty-three Sundays this
year and it will not happen again in 110
years. We have not looked up the mat
ter but we know that in 1903 it occured.'
But then what's the use. Most every
day is like Sunday in some places.

- - J. H. C0NLEY,
In the hollow of an old tree which
they chopped down in a field near
Richfield, X. J., recently workmen
found two letters. The first was in
a woman's hand. It said:
"Dear Jim I got your letter all
right the day it was left here our
little post office but it Is only now
that I have had a chance to leave a
reply. I think you meant what you
said, although at times I have believed
you were untrue. I have been watched
since your letter came, and had a long
wait before the oportunlty arrived for
me to slip out with the reply. I want
to meet you some night say, next
Thursday and we will both go away
together. I will be all ready, and if
you are not on hand and the letter is
gone I'll be convinced that you don't
want me. Then I'll go away myself,
and you'll never again hear from me.
This was dated Wednesday, June
10, 1881. The other letter, written in
a man's hand, was dated ten days
later. It read thus:
"Dear Alice: I have waited so
long for a reply that I have begun to
think that you have gone back on me.
I have come to the tree many times,
and looked in vain for an answer.
Night and day I have thought of you,
wondering If it could be possible that
you had forsaken me. I have heard
all about the other fellow, but cannot
make myself believe that you care
for him. I will wait five days more.
Then if I don't hear from you I will
be convinced that I am not wanted.
After that I will leave you alone to
enjoy the happiness which you may
find with him. I'll go far away from
here and try to forget Jim."
There was a small opening In the
tree about seven feet from the ground.
From this opening the hollow, bored
out by squirrels, ran clear to the
ground. The woodchoppers believe
that the missives fell or were dragged
clear to the ground after they had
been deposited in the "post office."
"Alice" and "Jim" were probably in
the habit of leaving letters in the
aperture, which could be taken out
with the hand until the squirrels had J
bored up from the bottom and reached
the point where the letters lay soon
after the girl left her last message
there. Both letters were crumpled
and eaten away at the edges, giving
rise to the belief that they were prob
ably dragged down Into the hollow
trunk by the squirrels.
A Set-Up Job.
"Are you the man from Sodder &
Co.'s to do the repairing of the water
pipes?" asked Mr. Subbubs.
"Yes," replied the plumber, "and
Mr. Sodder says it'll cost you 60."
"What? Why, he hasn't seen the
job; he don't know how much I want
"Mebbe not, but he told me how
mack to do."

Moscow's Many Beggars.
Of the heggars so characteristic of
Russia's ancient capital a writer
says: "The old city of Moscow could
not .easily be disassociated from, the
50,000 beggars who haunt its snowy
streets. The city belongs to them;
if the city rats own the drains, they
own the stieets. They are part of the
city, they are in perfect harmony with
it; take away the beggars and you
destroy something vital. Some are" so
old and weather battered that they
make the Kremlin itself 100k older,
and of those who lie at the monastery
doors some are so fearfully pitiable
in their decreptitude that they lend
power to the churches."
Califoraia Tourist Cart.
The idea that an inferior class of peo
ple patronize the tourist sleepers is ap
error. On many trips only the best class
of travelers are found. Tbey are merely
men and women of good sense who would
rather travel to California in this man
ner and save a suug sum of money. It
is beginning to be understood that it ia
by no mennd necessary for the traveler
to spend a large sum of money in order
to enjoy a trip to the Pacific Coast.
If you cross the continent in one of.
the tonriet sleepers of the Union Pacific
you will enjoy your trip and save con
siderable money. Inquire of E. O.
