to consult Dr. G. D. Evans on this
matter. The doctor's experience and the

the front rank in such matters and the
governor-elect was seeking his advice.
The report that the doctor was seeking
something from the new administration
is without foundation, as it was the

regarding the national guard and he
came to one whom he considered one of
the best informed men in the state.

ston and he was representing a Chicago
house. His method of doing business
was to go into a town and sign some

cashed and then move on. He was
traced to Grand Island, but gave the
officers the slip at that place and came
to i Columbus, where he had mail await
ing bim. In order to avoid suspicion he
presented an order at the post office for
his mail, giving the impression that he
was not the man. but before he got it
became suspicious and ML TbeoMosrs
then found out that he had some bag
gage and that it was ordered sent to
Norfolk, and they immediately instruct
ed the officers at that place to arrest
him. He was brought to this city on
the freight Monday evening and taken
to Omaha Tuesday morning by a deputy
sheriff from Douglas county. Living
ston was also wanted in Chicago, and the
authorities from the Windy City were
on his track first, but the Omaha people
found out he was under arrest and man
aged to get him first.
"The Farmer's Daughter" the present
season's emotionally dramatic rural dra
ma, which is generally selected as the
successor to "The Old Homestead" and
"Way Down Eaat", will be the attraction
at North Theatre on Wednesday Nov.
25th. As a play it is described as a
dramatic relief from the general run of
similar works, depending wholely and
solely on its truth of nature, its moral
lesson and consistency. There are four
acts, and it is one of those dramatic of
ferings wherein the audience become so
deepely enthused as to fancy the vari
ous characters their friends or enemies,
in keeping with the incidents of the play,
or in other words, become imaginative
participants. A splendid company pre
senting a splendid play always will be
welcome the world over, and that is what
may be looked forward to in the forth
coming presentation of '-The Farmer's
Daughter" in this city.
