The new German Reformed church,
in this place, will be dedicated on the
first Sabbath in October, being the 4th
dny. Rev. F. Dieckman, of Omaha,
will preach in German, in the forenoon,
at 10 a. m., and Rev. A. S. Foster, of the
Nebraska Avenue church, will preach in
the evening at 7 p. m.
We met Mr. Wm. Boyd, the contractor
for the Jackson, (now Duncan) Platte
river bridge one day last week, and from
him we learn that fifteen spans of the
superstructure have been erected, that
nearly all the piles have been driven and
that the bridge will be ready for the use
of the publio within two weeks. The
entire bridge is fourteen hundred and
twenty-five feet in length, each span
seventy-five feet in length. Mr. Boyd
htiB a force of twenty men at work, and
Ed Dwyer, the cook of the gang, thinks
a man who mixes a bHrrel of flour every
eight days ought soon to know some
thing about cooking.
Let it be knows that the-U.P. R.R.,
Oo will continue to furnish cheap coal
along the entire length of their road, and
at all seasons of the year, and the good
results to the country and hence to the
ruilroad company itself, would soon be
apparent to every one. Manufacturers
would gain a foothold wherever there
would be a prospect of success, and
cheap fuel would tend to make success
a certainty. The country would be
settled more rapidly, thus giving sale to
railroad lauds, and still adding to the
products of the country, and to the
transportation work of the road. Let
the established policy of the road be

The legend of "Parsifal" which Messrs.
Martin and Emery will offer at the
North Theatre crystalizes around two
mystic objects, a cup or chalice and a
spear. The lioly Grail and the Sacret
Spear as they are called in the play and
by poets, have been the subject of more
song and story than any other themes in
history. As legend will have it, both
the spear and the grait' were presented
to Joseph of Aramatbea by Pontious
Pilate. The spear is accounted as be
ing the one that pierced the side of the
Saviour at the Crucifiction and the
chalice as being the cup used at the last
supper and later to catob the blood of
Him who died on the Cross. Around
these two central objects is woven the
poetic and mighty theme used by Rich
ard Wagner in "Parsifal."
Claral Addison, the infant son of Mr.
and Mrs. Anthony Christensen, died
Tuesday evening at the home, Thirteen
th and R street, after a week's illness
with hydrocepolis. The body was taken
to Hampton Wednesday for burial and
the funeral will be held Thursday. Mr.
and Mrs. Christensen moved from that
place about two and one-half months

Columbus' Frontier bays oelebration
opened Monday night, despite the fant
that it was chilly and exceedingly disa
greeable The C. W. Parker shows,
which will furnish the attractions for the
week, arrived in the city late Sunday
afternoon, and the work of unloading
was delayed owing to the fact that it
rained. The continual downpour Mon
day prevented most of the shows from
being ready to open in the evening. The
leading attraction, the Roman Coliseum,
is one of the strongest shows ever exhib
ited in Columbus. This miniature hip
podrome has been the talk and craze of
every town it has been presented in by
the Parker shows. Six big acts are
given, some of the performers being
known throughout the amusement
world, and high priced artists. The
four Lorellas give a posing act that is
alone well worth the money. The mas
terpieces of the world's most famous
sculptors are posed in lifelike manner, so
much so that Madison Square Garden,
New York City, held them for more than
300 days. Martin Morales and family,
Mexican acrobats, have a horizontal bar
act which has been claimed by critics to
be one of the best ever seen in America.
They have only been in the United States
a little over three months, and speak a
broken accent Alvino and Geare, con
tortion artists, intersperse the varied
program by an act of hand to hand work
and contortion stunts that border on the
impossible. The strong entertainment
is brought to a fitting close by the fonr
Loretta's in their acrobatic and mat
tumbling. This act has already found
places on the strongest vaudeville cir
cuits in the country and the Loretta's
have just completed a summer engage
ment with the Campbell Bros, circus,
this alone showing the caliber of their
work. Captain Cardona's trained wild
animal show, which has just completed
a summer run at Biverview Park,
Chicago, is noted for its hazardous acta.
Captain Cardona is -without doubt the
only animal trainer who has ever
attempted the dangerous act of putting
his head into the mouth of a full grown
and ferocious Nubian lion. This he does
at every performance for the amusement
of the people. His collection of lions,
dogs, leopards and other animals is
claimed to be one of the best in the
country. Besides these two strong
shows, eight other equally as strong
attractions are presented by the Parker
shows Pharaoh's daughter, the Tyro
lean Alps, Hale's tours, seven of the
largest snakes 'inNcaptivity, sea lions,'
ocean wave, Ferris wheel and the Par
ker jumping horse carry -us-all, are to be
seen and enjoyed. Three big strong free
attractions are also carried, including
the leap the gap. by Diavolon.
A special from Lincoln to the Omaha
Bee, dated September 27, conveys the
following information: In this day of
fast multiplying state institutions Gover
nor Sheldon may have another to be
disposed of by the next legislature. In
his message to the legislature he may
include a recommendation for the dis
posal of the Genoa Indian school build
ings and grounds by the state. In all
probability the goernraentwilI turn the
property over to the state free of charge.
Then the question of its use by the state
will come before the legislature. The
government is giving up its Indian
school property throughout the country
and the only one of the kind in Nebras
ka, that at Genoa, Nance county, may
be turned over to the state without price.
The increase in state institutions and
state departments has been somewhat
rapid during the last ten years, but thus
far there appears to be room for more.
What shall the legislature do with the
Genoa Indian school property? At the
last session of the legislature there was
a bill for the creation of an institute for
dipsomaniacs and epileptics. Some talk
of a division of the Home for the Friend
less and the hospital for crippled child
ren, now maintained at Lincoln, and a
new deal for the Industrial School for
Women was discussed, but no change
was made. The dipsomaniacs which
the state has assumed control over, not
withstanding the opposition of many
members of the legislature; are cared for
only at the Lincoln hospital for the in
sane. It has been argued that the
epileptic patients at all of the insane
hospitals of the state should be segregat
ed. There has been talk of a state hospi
tal for consumptive wards of the state,
but no action has been taken. The farm
lands and the buildings at the govern
ment school at Genoa can be used to
good advantage by the Btate if the legis
lature will only decide what purpose the
property is best suited for. There ap
pears to be plenty of Normal school pro
perty at Peru and Kearney and plenty
of room for soldiers and sailors at Grand
Island and Milford. Iowa has assumed
control of its dipsomaniacs and Nebras
ka has followed this example, and if the
plan is to be continued the Genoa school
property may be made useful for this
purpose. Governor Sheldon has received
word from the general government that
if the state has any use of the Genoa
property it may have the same provid
ing congress will pas a bill making the
donation. Governor Sheldon favors ad
ditional experiment stations of the state
farm, but Genoa is considered to be too
far east fortius purpose.

buildings of the Indian school for estate

a mission school, which was established
there fifty years ago, aad later passed

the south about the year 1400, as near ss
oan be figured from what John Dunbar
could learn, a missionary who worked
among the Pawnees in 1831. When the
Pawnees oame to Nebraska they found
the Skeedes occupying the country, and
fought and subdued them, adopting the
survivors into the tribe. The Pawnees
were evidently a branch of the Wichitas,
who occupied all the country now em
braced in southern Kansas and northern
Oklahoma. The Wiohitas and Pawnees
speak the same language, and when
the latter tribe was removed from
Nebraska, at their request they were
assigned to a reservation adjoining the
