Last Sunday Ed Webb. overseer of
the poor farm? had .a visit from . an pld
time acquaintance tbat he will not soon
forget. About six years ago Ed and Sam
Graves were working together on the
railroad, but unta Sunday Webb had!
not seen Graves since then. When
Graves 'arrived at the Webb home be had
two horses with him and 6aid hev-desjred
to sell them. One of them suited Webby
but he did hot.want the other one. As
Graves was anxious to sell both animalB,
Ed called up John Randall over the
telephone and he came out and looked
at the horse and bought him. But
Monday the sheriff from Central City
came down '-here' looking for stolen
horses, and the description he gave tall
ied with the horses that Graves had
sold, and they were turned over to him
He then began looking for Graves, who
was around town Monday morning, but
he haw evidently thought it was time
to make hjmself scarce, and left on an
eostbound train. There is a $50 reward
for his arrest and conviction, and the
sheriff and Webb went to FremontrMon

The announcement of the prospective
return to the North Theater of-- George
Broadhurst's greatest success, "The
Man of the Hour' should be the means
of crowding the 'Theater- to - its' limit
throughout the week of the engagement.
What makes the "Man of the Hour
so powerful is the strength of its charac
ters. It is not a one man -play. It is a
play by an author with a story .to tell,
and the skill to make it alive, a swiftly
moving drama of real men and real
women, told with a swing and vigor of'
.expression which go to the making of a
powerfnl and stirring play. iC-ii.' M
"TheManof the Hour" that the New
York Herald said: "The kind of rugged.
story tbat leaves you panting with eager
ness for more." Managers Wm, , A.
Brady and Jos. R. Grismer's special
company will be seen during this en
gagement. What was probably the oldest build
ing left in the city was razed to the
ground last week. It was located in;
block 182, in the east part of town, and
was occupied by Joseph Moscehross un
til his death. The building, which was
built of cot'tonwood, was. erected in 1861,
when the boards used in its construction
were sawed by a mill located just across
'.the'strcet from it." Dr. C. B.Stiljman
used a portion of it for an office, wbenHt'
was facing east on the same lots, but in
1864 he sold it to Frank Becker. Since
that time it has been put to various uses,
but most for a dwelling house. It was
built in the old fashioned style, cotton
wood boards running up and down, in
stead of lengthwise, were used for siding

Tbey will continue it at as a sale stable,
but for the present will only sell at pri
vate sale, not having any large sales at
present. Mr. Branigan built up'a splen
did horse market in this city, and his
-disposing of the barn will probably
mean tbat no more large sales will be
held again very soon. He will, however,
continue in the horse business, but will
make the larger markets, such as South
Omaha and Kansas City, his base in
stead of Columbus.
