We had again on Thursday night one
of those quiet, steady, soaking rains that
have been so common this season. The .
depths of dust on Thursday evening
were mud holes by Friday morning.

Three families of immigrants in cover
ed wagons passed our office Monday.
One of these wagons was a regular little
house bnilt on ladders a chicken coop
under the wagon. As they had a herd
of stock with them, we suppose that
they understand their business. Al
though unknown to us, we welcome them
to the fertile lands and salubrious cli
mate of Nebraska.
Prairie fires are in full view of this
city uight after night, during the dry
weather, and they present a beautiful
sight, but in their consequence some
times thousands upon thousands of dol
lars worth of property and even life it
self is swept away in the course of a few
hours. Even the existence of severe
state laws, and all the admonitions of
trie public press of the state, seem to
have no effect in checking the setting
out of those most dangerous fires. What
next remains to be done to check it we
know not, unless our legislature should
declare it a crime punishable by a term
of years confinment in the states prison.

Lew Weinberger came near losing his
life Wednesday afternoon while on a
hunting trip west of town along the
river. He, in company with Charles
Brock and Deed Thorp, were hunting
near Gardner. At the Jtimethe accident
ocoured, they were driving along the
road shooting birds off the fence posts,
and the butt of the gnu, which was rest
ing on the foot board of the wagon,
probably jarred off and in some manner
the trigger was struck, discharging the
gun. The charge entered Weinberger's
right breast, raging upward toward the
shoulder. His vest pocket contained
a note book, led pencils and cigars, and
these, together with portions of his
clothing, were forced into the wound.
As soon as possible an automobile was
telephoned for, bnt before it arrived a
party came along in a machine and the
wounded man was hurried to the hos
pital, where he was given surgical atten
tion. At first it was thought his condi
tion was critical, but present indications
are that he will recover from his injury,
although it will be some time.
At the adjourned meeting of the city
council last Wednesday evening the
specifications for the work of paving dis
trict No. 1 were submitted and the reso
lution embodying this adopted by the
council. City Engineer Bossiter sub
mitted an estimate for $2.05 per square
yard for the paving, which will be ce
ment. The council adjourned until
Wednesday evening, October 27, at
which time two important matters will
be considered one being the water ex
tension bond ordinance which calls for
$10,000 bonds, and the other will be to
provide funds for the new city jail, a lot
on which to locate it having been pur
chased a short time ago. In the water
works matter, the ordinance, which will
be placed on its second reading, will
probably have the date of the election
selected and inserted. There will also.
have to be a bond issued for the building
of the city jail, as funds for that purpose
are not available, and the proposition in
connection with this will be submitted
at the same time the water extension
bonds are voted upon.
The presentation of "Lena Rivers,"
by Mary J. Holmes, which is underlined
to be made here shortly and which is
being awaited with considerable inter
est, will be noteable for several reasons.
In the first place, the presentation will
make known -what is absolutely the
most successful dramatization of a pop-'
nlar book that the stage has known in
many years. Proof of this is furnished
in part by the fact that the book is now
in its fiftieth year, having outlived
thousands of works which have been
given to the public at the time it was
printed, and by the fact that its popular
ity seems to increase rather than dimin
ish with time. A particularly strong
and well balanced company will be seen
in the play, which contains all the things
which made "Lena Rivers" as a novel,
so entertaining. North Theater Thurs
day, October 28.
This being headquarters for the demo
cratic state committee, and the new law
passed by the democratic legislature
last winter requiring the filing of a
statement of monies expended by the
various committees, John C Byrnes,
chairman and acting treasurer of the de
mocratic central committee, filed the
following statement with County Clerk
Graf Tuesday of last week, which was a
day late: W. J. Bryan, $200, Eli A.
Barns, $50, J. B. Dean, $100; J. J. Sul
livan, $100; B. F. Good, $100; O. M.
Hitchcock, $75; M. W. Baxter, $50; Jesse
Gidley, $50; A. V. Johnson, $50; N. O.
Abbott, $33.75; W. J. Furse, $33; 8. L.
Mains, $35; R. E Stewart, $140; B. F.
Johnson, $100; D. 8. Woodward, $50;
T.W.Smith, $50. P. Juckniees, $30;
collected by volunteers and turned over
by CM. Gruenther, $1,026, making a
total of $2,372.75.
It would seem as if everyone who has
read Mrs. Mary J. Holmes' delightful
sketch of men, women and manners in
the South, called "Lena Rivers" would
want to see the work in dramatic shape,
In dramatic shape Jt has been placed and
its success has verged upon the extraor
dinary. This is not at all wonderful, for
the story was exceedingly popular and
the dramatization made of it is extreme
ly clever and satisfying. Burton Nixon
will present the play at North Theatre,
Thursday, Oct. 28, giving it with a care
fully selected cast and with a production
that is all that could be desired. All of
the characters of the book are in the
play and so are the best of many good
lines and odd sayings whioh caused the
readers so much enjoyment.
Two incendiary fires were discovered
in time Monday night, either one of
which would have resulted in a bad blaze.
The.flrst one, in the wash house at the
Henry residence, was discovered by C.
O. Gray, who was passing in an auto,
and upon investigation a number of old
carpets were on fire and the blaze was
bright enough to be seen through the
windows of the building. The second
one occurred an hour later, and it was in
the stable owned by G. B. Prieb. Here
coal oil had been used, but in some way
the fire smothered itself. .The barn con
tained two horses-end considerable hay
and would have made a very bad fire.

Next Friday afternoon s novel enter

place at the race track. It will be an
exhibition of military and high school
riding and cattle driving contest for
prizes. The riding exhibition will be
given by August Volkmann, an ex-offiesr
of the German army, and it will be very
interesting to all. There will be three
cattle driving events, aa'd the' con
testants will be local people, and liberal
prizes have been bung up. These novel
performances should attraot a good
orowd and the admission, which is 25
cents, being only nominal. The per
formance begins promptly at 2 o'olock.
Seventy-six dollars and fifty cents was
the highest price paid for land at the
referee sale of thetSchmidt farm, just
west of the Loup river railroad bridge,
and H. A. Clarke was the purchaser of
the first tract whioh consisted of eighty
acres. The home place, consisting of
150 acres, was bought by Julius Ernst,
and he paid $72.50 per acre. William
Buoher bosght the other eighty for $41
an acre, and the accretions twenty
three acres, at $5.10 per acre. This land
is located near the city, and those who
are posted on such matters say that the
price was very reasonable.
One of the most important canes ever
before the federal court in Omaha is on
trial this week it being the case against
the men who held up the Overland lim
ited just out of Omaha a few months
ago. A former Columbus man, Engineer
Meiklejohn, who was engineer of the
train that night, is one of the principal
witnesses. He positively identified two
of the suspects when placed on the stand
during the first day of the trial. Mr.
Meiklejohn was a resident of this city
some years ago, when he was running an
engine on the Union Pacific branches
out of this city.
Last Saturday the second case of polio
myelitis developed in the family of M. 8.
Fish, this time his seven year old son
Cbalmer being stricken. His case is
much more severe than that of his young
er brother, as he is helpless with tha
exception of his bands and arms, which
he is able to move. Mr. Fish had ex
pected to return home the first of this
week, as the doctors expected to raise
the quarantine at that time, but the
second case, which is more serious than
the first, will compel him to remain
away much longer than he anticipated.
Thursday or Friday of this week
County Clerk Graf will begin delivering
the official and sample ballots to the var
ious polling places in the county. In
former years this required the services
of two employes of the county clerk's
office and four and one-half days' time
to make the rounds. But last year an
automobile was brought into service, and
the result was so satisfactory that it will
be used again this year and the time re
quired will be two days, and it will
only require one man to do the work.
Tuesday afternoon Police Judge
O'Brien listened, to the evidence in the
case of May Flynn, a minor, who was up
on a complaint filed by County Attor
ney Hensley, asking that she be sent to
the industrial school for girls at Geneva,
as she is in want of proper paternal care.
After hearing the evidence the case was
transferred to County Judge Batter
man's court for Wednesday afternoon,
and it is quite probable, in view of the
evidence submitted, that he will order
her sent to the Geneva institution.
After November first Phil Echols will
become identified with the present firm

deal was closed some time ago, but it
was not known until this week. The
advent of Mr. Echols into the firm will
make a change in the name and it will
probably be known as Schram k Eobols.
Until a short time ago Phil was em

"Lena Rivers" has proved one of the
season's successes, and apart from the
dramatic excellence, the company inter

calls for more than ordinary skill and

and the management has supplied a

offerings at the North Theatre the date
of its appearance in this city being
Thursday Oct. 28.

Evelyn Bargelt and her company of
entertainers will appear Thursday eve
ning Oct., 28th., as the first number of
the X. M. O. A. entertainment course.
This will undoubtedly be an excellent
entertainment. One good way of judg
ing it is to find out what others say
about it. A prominent publication of
Ohio says about her: "Miss Evelyn
Bargelt, reader and crayon artist, was
perhaps the greatest hit of the evening,
her clever crayon work and story telling
at once placing her in the foremost ranks
of artists in her line." Again the
"State Center Enterprise" of Iowa says:
"Miss Evelyn Bargelt, reader and car
toonist, was unsurpassed and her draw
ing was an evenings' entertainment in
itself. Her reading, -The Heart of Old
Hickory" was excellent and she waa
called to the platform formany encores."
If you miss seeing the Bargelt enter
tainment, October 88th, you miss some
thing good. Course tickets for the five
entertainments are on sale at $1.00 to
members and $1.50 to others.
.The Cymca Club, a mesa' literary club
of recent organization, is preparing to
give a Hallowe'en party Friday night,
Oct. 29th. to young men and their
ladies. Twenty-five cents and a lady
friend will admit you to this party.
Buy your ticket and make your date now
for "Procrastination is the secret of
failure." There will be plenty of enter
tainment and refreshments. Mr. Eien
zel will give up his Friday evening gym
nasium class and a committee will deco
rate the gymnasium in up-to-date Hal
lowe'en style. The party .will begin at
8:00 o'clock and stop at 12:00 o'olock.
If you live in the city come to the Cymca
Hallowe'en party; if you live in the
country, come; and they say that people
who have been dead a long time often
appear on Hallowe'en, so if you are a
"dead one," come. Have we leit any
out? If you don't live in the city nor in
the country and if you are neither dead
nor alive, come anyway for we don't
want to slight any one. It costs you
only twenty-five cents and the possible
embarassment of being gently "turned
down" by some young lady who has al
ready promised to come with some other
fellow. But that's good for you for it
teaches you to be spry.
