It waa admitted in the Nebraska sen
ate the other duy, even by the members
favoring the killing of birds, that it
costs the sportsman ut least one dollar
for every bird killed, so that, us a means
of procuring food, it is too expensive.

coal is of good quality.

March 1 is the date which the city
council named for the special bond elec
tion for the new city hall and water
works extension. The new city ball, for
which bonds amounting to $15,000 will
be required, will be located on West
Eleventh street, just east of the electric
light. The plane, which were prepared
by Architect Ohas Wurdeman, provide
for a building 44x74 feet, two stories and
a basement in the north end for the heat
ing plant. On the lower floor will be
the council chamber, city clerk's office,
room for the fire department apparatus,
police court and the men's apartment of
the city jail. The main entrance and
front of the building will be on Eleventh
street, and the door opens into a vestibule.
On the Platte street side of the building
the entrance to the room for the fire de
partment apparatus will consist of the
large doors, and also the entrance to the
second lloor. On the second floor will
be a large assembly room, also the tire-
men's room and quarters for women pri
soners in tho city jail. The building
will be modern throughout and provided
with heat, plumbing and lights. The
proposed extension of the waterworks
will provide the western, northern and
southeast sections of the city, and will
practically do away with the present
dead ends, and also afford much better
Gre protection to many portions of the
city that are to all purposes out of reach
Last Thursday evening the Commer
cial club took up the changing of the
schedule of the Union Pacific passenger
train on the Spalding branch, at a meet
ing called for that purpose. While the
merchants favored the proposition to
make the change, the hotel men were
against any radical change, saying that
it would enable people on the branch to
return to their homes the same day, and
thereby leave them with empty rooms.
Various changes were suggested that
would be satisfactory to all, but finally
a committee of four, consisting of Frank
Schrani, A. R. Miller, Carl Kramer
and President Karr of the Commercial
club was appointed to confer with the
railroad regarding the change. The
first business of the club, was to take up
the assisting the city band in securing a
leader, that organization having a pro
position from Dr. Laird, of Omaha. As
the proposition submitted by the doctor
was rather indefinite. Secretary Bert
Galley of the band, was asked to confer
with him further and report at a later
meeting of the club. -The annual ban
quet of the club was discussed and the
secretary instructed to extend invitations
to the officials of the Union Pacific, Bur
lington and Northwestern railroads.
After an illness of two weeks with
lung fever, Mrs. Josephine Lachnit,
mother of Henry and L. A. Lachnit,
died at the family home, in southeast
Columbus, Wednesday morning, aged C9
years. Mrs. Lachnit was born in Aus
tria, in IS 10. In 1874 with her husband
nnd family, she came to Nebraska and
settled in Butler county, remaining
there a few years until the family moved
to near Lindsay, this county. Since
that time, until eight years ago, when
she and her husband moved to the city,
they made their home on the farm.
Mrs. Lachnit leaves, besides her aged
husband, Franz Lachnit, seven sons and
five daughters, all of who are living.
Funeral services will be held Saturday
morning from St. Bonaventura's church,
being conducted by Father Marcellinus,
and burial will be in the parish cemetery.
"The Old Homestead will always rank
among the great plays of the American
stage, even after it has ceased to be pre
sented and lingers only in memory. It
has no plot, no high flown dialogue, no
rolling periods, these are all lacking.
What it successfully purports to be is a
character study, with plenty of light and
shade, intrigue is wanting, but in its
place is an exquisite representation df
honest motives. The present is the
twenty fourth season of Mr. Denman
Thompson's famous play and it will
doubtless go on for many more years de
lighting the theatregoers all over the
country. There is scarcely a city large
er small, in the country, where "The
Old Homestead" has not been seen.
The famous double quartette of farm
hands is still the musical feature of the
production. North Theatre Feb. 14.
At the home of Mr. Fauble, on East
14 street was the scene of youthful hap
piness last Friday night Mrs. Fauble,
Colton. Munger, Holden. Dussell, King,
Neator and Derrington were at home to
the young people of the Congregational
church. Soon after eight o'clock the
hostess started things going by pinning
the name of an animal on each back
which was to be worn until the party
guessed it. The young people immedi
ately began to look wise and mix and
ask many wise questions. An auction
was another interesting affair where val
uable articles were sold to the highest
bidder, beans being used for money. A
tine lap luncheon was served after which
more thau seventy-five happy young
people bid their hostesses good night.
About sixty residents of Platte coun

sister. Mr and Mrs. Turner will return
and make their home at Locust Grove
farm, on rural route No. 1, known as the
Denman Thompson's "The Old Home
stead,' now in its twenty-fourth year, is
one of the rich treasures of the Ameri
can stage. The old play, long familiar
to all sorts and conditions of men, is.
with the exception of "Rip Van Win
kle," the finest blend of quaint humor
and helpful precept current in the thea
tre. Its pervading spirit is that of the
tender and simple love of an old man
for all that is simple and lovely, of an
old man who might sing with Jean In-
gelow. I opened the doors of my heart
and behold, there was muBio within and
a song, and echoes did feed on the
sweetness, repairing it long. To go and
see "The Old Homeetesd" is like going
home for a visit. Joshua Whitcomb is
one of the most beautiful characters on
the stage. North Theatre Feb. 14.
Fred Ray and Jack Fry, two young
lads from London. England, arrived in
the city Sunday evening. They came to
this country with the intention of
remaining if they find things to their
Tuesday afternoon County Judge Rat
terman beard the case of Barnes vs.
Parry, a dispute over a pasture bill. It
seems that Barnes, who resides west of
Albion, in Boone county, came down to
the Postville neighborhood last spring
and took some cattle belonging to Mr.
Parry to pasture during the summer.
On the way to Boone county one of
Parry's steers died, and as he was not
notified, or did not see the brand, he
claims that Mr. Barnes should pay for
the animal. Mr. Parry gave Mr. Barnes
a check for the pasturing, but before it
could be cashed, stopped payment on it.
A number of witnesses from near New
man Grove, Albion and the Postville
neighborhood were present. The judge
took the case under advisement until
the latter part of this week.
Ever since the establishment of the
rural free delivery service the patrons
have had a habit of dropping loose coins
in the box, to pay postage, expecting the
carrier to pick them out, no matter
whether it was summer or winter. The
post office department has ealled the at
tention of the patrons to this practice at
different times, but it was of no avail.
But an order was issued during January
concerning the loose coin nuisance that
pleases all the rural carriers. After
February 15 a carrier .is not obliged to
pick loose coins out of a mail box, and
the patrons mnst either place them in a
coin receptacle or envelope, if he expects
the carrier to take them and place the
postage on the letter. This new order
is of great benefit to the carriers, as the
time they gain by not stopping to take
out loose change will amount to from a
few minutes to almost an hour, accord

the habit of dropping their coins into
