seems to have boon quite lojthetic in

dose of theatricals , for we found J.
W. Garner , playing Rap Van Winkle
tn an empty house , when anything
Garner would play , in the eastern or
middle states would always draw full
houses. Antimonopoly seems to bo
very strong here , and is often spoken
of in connection with the names of
Chas. Van Wyck and Vol. Sap , and a
Tow days ago the the secretary of the
state alliance was hero and organized
a farmers alliance , nnd an antimonopoly
nopoly league. The Secretary , Mr.
L. E. Williams , a practical farmer
from Montrosc , Leo county , Iowa , is

state , Is a nephew of Judge Williams ,
of Chicago , so noted for pluck , and ho

There is a good deal of real estate
changing hands. W. A. Woodward ,
the C. B. it Q. land ngent , who has
just changed to now and very grand
quarters on the corner opposite his old
stand , says ho has plenty to do , and
W. R. Minert , is selling land and
joining money every day. Two bus
iness houses hero are doing a very largo
business and it may bo intcrestiug to
the readers of TIIK BEE to compare
some of their facts and figures with
those in other towns or in other
The hardware house of Barnes &
Watterman are doing a business that
will compare with the business in a
large city. In looking at their books
I saw the cash sales nf last Saturday
were almost a thousand dollars , and a
few days before the cash received in
one day was twenty-two hundred. As
1 wandered up the street to the north
west corner of the square , the mammoth -
moth store of A. Harnoy , is the at
traction. The numerous signs and
bulletins make announcements of now
goods , and prices and kinds of pro
duct bought , but the large "boo hive"
painted on the outer wall is the most
expressive , emblem end correct label.
I entered from the front fac
ing the public park to find a
building 120 feet Ion ; ; , with ware
house and refrigerator at the rear.
This monster room is divided by a
partial partitirn , or diaphragm , near
which the office desk is loratod in the
center of the building. From llio
front entrance wo are introduced to
the departments of dry goods , silks
and1 dress goods , housekeeping and
linen , woolen and domestics , hosiery
and underwear tor ladies nnd gentle
men , cloak and shawl department ,
millinery , notions , and the Demorcst
pattern department. Passing the
diaphragm to the west wo find a full
line of groceries and provisions , with
the exit on to Third street , conven
iently located near the main entrance
to the butter and egg department in
the cellar. An idea of this og- , ' trade ,
which is only a few months 'old , may
bo shown by the statement thatduring
the first three days of this week he
shipped a thousand doznn , and sells
to the largest dealers in the vest.
The butter and i > gg trnllio is a very
largo item , and is fast becoming an
important feature ot the business of
the town. Mr. Harvey cumo here
less than a year ago from
Monmouth , 111 , , and late in the sum
mer began to prepare for a trade
in butter and eggs , and ho has already
established a reputation in prices , that
brings him the good butter from many
of the smaller towns for twenty miles
around , nnd ho has no trouble tw sell
all ho can get , although ho lias ship
ped 15,000 or i.0,000 pounds during
the winter season , and was some times
a ton or more behind in ftllini ; his
"rders. * Ho has all the machinery and
appliancas for working and picking ,
which is under his personal supervi
sion , and is putting up butter , worked
and packed in his butter department ,
in 5 nnd 10 pound Voxcs. 1H
brand of "Boo Ilivo Creamery Hut-
ier , " with the stamp of the "Boo
Hive , " in the butter , is already known
in the mountains , ton or fifteen then-
sand feet above the sea level , m Col
orado , Missouri , nnd Illinois , and in
many of the cities in Iowa , Nebraska ,
and Kansas. The enterprise and suc
cess of this trade here , is working up
other dealers to the idea , that there is
a right mid n wrong way to do busi
ness , and the general public all along
the ilopo are beginning to rcalio
that the dairy is far more reliable nnd
profitable than the grain crops , nnd
that good butter always finds a ready
The evidences show that Homo and
Pompeii excelled in gladitatorial
plays , nnd most of those theaters and
games were open to the sun ; but in
this land of improvements , most of
the strifes in "deadly combat * are
attended to in "suitable buildings"
and in the night time , and wo pass
by those "incidents" of which every
town is ashamed , to one which should
interest ovcrv citizen of Omaha.
It was in the early part of last Jan-
Mary , that THE BEE called attention
to n very important invention , just
being patented by Hoxio and Patterson -
son of Corning , Iowa , which was anew
now process of manufacturing stone.
THE Ui'.E was the first to call atten
tion to this stone and.its great variety
of ueos , and now ngain , after months
of careful inquiry , and watching it
during the most critical tests by prac
tical stone men nnd builders , ns well
as the skilled in chomcstry and geological
logical experience ; I say to the poole -
lo "you want this. " It is the only
manufactured atone that is made by
n real perfect crystallization of the
sand , which is the basis of the now
rock. It is harder than granite ,
beautiful in finish , will bear the
severest tests of fire and water , and
in cost can bo placed in competition
For weeks have studied and
counseled with able mon as to the
practicability of using this stone to
pave the streets of Omaha. It can bo
secured nnd the sand ot tno Missouri
can bo made into a beautiful solid
road bed , or laid in sections , nt the
pleasure of the contractor , making n
road harder than granite , clean and
perfect , that can bo repaired ns easily
as a house wall can bo patched with
lime mortar , and that will not cost
more than the cheap wooden pave
ments. The great Napoleon , filled
with prejudice and led by popular
clamor against the practical use of the
steam engine , lost one of the golden
momenta when ho said : "There are a
sot of men , adventurers , charlatans ,
at every court in Europe , whb try to
irrposo inventions noon the authori
ties for money , which have no exhist-
once save in their own imaginations ;
and this American Fulton is ono of
thorn. Do not mention the subject
to mo again ; " and wo insist that if
the business men of Omaha do not
look well to this now paving stone be
fore going much further , and before
souio speculator purchases the right
of Douglas county , it will bo a. terri
1 Col. W. W. Patterson , for years
identified with many of the impor
tant business interests of Kearney.
Nebraska , and now a resident of Corn
ing , Iowa , is the inventor. The colonel
nel has been for many years engaged
in manufacturing the many stones
used at present , and is well known all
over this country , nnd will bo remem
bered particularly ns associated with
Col. Thorp four or five years ago at
Lincoln and Omaha. 1 may have
boon looked up as one who is very
easily talked into some new thing , and
so 1 put n few others onto the stand
by saying that wo fear Omaha will
overlook this , while heavy capitalists
in Now York City are forming n stock
company with u hundred thousand
dollars to control five counties , in
eluding that city. The superintend
ent of the Inter Ocean mining com
pan } ' of Colorado , and the heaviest
stockholder in the company , cainu
hero to secure territory , as thoheaviost
stone dealers and largest contractors
and builders in the nation , who all
join with the scientists in pronounc
ing this tlio stone of to-day , and any
body who investigates will see that it
is , without a shadow of doubt , what
it claims to bo.
The notorious Rivcrton bank rob
ber , Poke Wells , passed along this
line Friday evening in charge of
Sheriff Chandler and Sheriff Dan Far
rell for the State's prison n\ Fort Mad
ison. They were assisted by G , T.
Hatton , of Sidney , who has nuised
him since his confinement in that jail.
Poke Wells refused to be carried to
the court house but insisted on walk
ing , and in court plead guilty to the
larceny of a horse and the money
taken from the bank , and was sen
tenced to five years for each ; and
many think ho will never live the ton
years to bo tried for any other charges.
At Red Oak while transferring to the
main line , ho hud a very poor spell ,
and suffered much from his lame leg
and from the ball Furroll loft in his
right'bi-east , and from Homo of the
other twenty-eight pistol and gun
shots ho has received , nnd seemed to
have u chill , and the sheriff tele
graphed to Creston for n surgeon to
join the train , but ho Boon revived
irom the chill and icstcd easily wliilo
chatting with the attendants who
gathered around his bed ,
