The many friends of President Parks ,
I of Simpson college , Indlanohi , la. , will
I bo surprised to learn of his resignation.
Only last Sunday he was hero with Bish-
I op Nindo , working in the interest of the
institution , and there was no intima-
I tion then that ho was soon to sever his
I connection with it. The main purpose
I of his resignation is to accept a proffered
I position as professor in the Gammon
I School of Theology at Atlanta , Georgia.
I President Parks has been the main stay
Iof Simpson college , and during his ad-
r ministration the old debt has been paid
I' off , and the attendance of students more

I"1 'The ' Nickel Plated circus , which showed
r' hero Thursday , seems to have been prop-
I crly named. It was properly iv nickel
I show. The demand for $175 license ul-
I most paralyzed the manager , and he sue-
I. ceoiled in ranking the city authorities be-
r Ileve that , after all. he did not huvo n clr-
I ' ous nnd menagerie , but only n variety
k ehow , for which the license was only $50.
IBy not having any menagerie , nnd no
I horses , the performance of a few turn-
I biers nnd a decrepit clown was declared
I by the circus manager to bo only a vnr'-
I oty show. The city should not have let
r these fellows oil' with a $50 license when
I a first-class circus has to pay $175. When
I' irshow comes along advertising itself as
I being a complete circus and menagerie ,
I und inducing the people to spend their
I money under this belief , they should be
I made to pay double license , instead of
I being let-oil' with n small one. If any
I fnvors are to be shown , it should be to
I ' .the shows which give tlio people their 50

For the past throa nights Eisomau's
People's store has been the great attrac
tion for hundreds of people , the occasion
ot such a rusii being the grand opening.
Tlio crowd last night * amounted almost
to.a eru h , and the scene was more like
the opening of some immense exposition
rather than a merehantilo house. Eisc-
man & Co. , who have already established
their reputation for enterprise , have fair
ly eclipsed all their former efforts.
Their establishment is of mammoth size ,
taking in several stores on Broadway ,
nnd running back on Bryant street a long
way. Arches arc cut between the differ-
cut departments , and thus a number of
\v hat would separately form largo estab
lishments arc thrown into one of mam
moth proportions. Aside from being ono
of the largest houses in the west , the
variety and quantity of stock is fully In
keeping. The goods were arranged with
wonderful taste , necessitating an exnen-
diture of much time and no small ex
pense. It formed n scene worthy of the
llriu and of the great crowds of ailmircrs
which wore drawn thitlier. With attrac
tions throughout every department , with
n score of large electric lights and many
scores of gas jets , with natural ( lowers
scattered throughout the establishment ,
with ladles and gentlemen in throngs
dressed as If in attendance at some
fashionable reception , the scene was one
which might well bu termed brilliant.
.No event of this kind lias occurred in
the history of the city which could equal
it for brilliancy and extent. Many from
out of the city have been in attendance ,
and throughout the city Itself , tlio dis
plays and the attractive features of the
opening have been the constant theme of
The dress goods department was ono
of the most admired of all , the goods
being arranged in pleasing uraperies on
stands , showing oil'to line advantage the
great variety of silks , satins , velvets , and
other goods , Potted plants mid bloom-
ins flowers were placed hero and there ,
giving a bowery appearance to the ultico.
In the notion department appeared the
handsomest line of parasols ever shown
here. There were all the latest styles ,
coaching , Louis XIV. , gondolas , tans ,
browns , etc- . , there being a great variety
of the leading styles and colors. The
display of hosiery was also remarkable.
In prices they varied in lisle thread
from HO cents a pair up to $ : t.OO ,
while in silk hosiery one could
choose anything from $1.00 a pair to
i&lU.OO. & There wore shown longi
tudinal stripes , Egyptian plaids , solid
colors with mace soles , opera tints ,
in endless variety. Many of ( he more
expensive goods were shown in cases.
Then through the other departments
were shown a great variety of goods , the
arrangement nnd display of which were
marked by the same rare taste. There
were many suns , shawls , wraps ami in
fants' clothing. A special display was
made of misses' and children's hats.
White goods , lawns and embroideries
were admired greatly. One show case
contained real laces amounting to hun
dreds of dollars.
In the lower room at the rear were
shown curtains nnd draperies , fancy
table linens , ginghams , muslins nuda va
riety of goods.
In the clothing department there was
not sucn tin opportunity for making fancy
displays , but the quantity ot' stock , the
quality and variety were shown to be
fully in accordance with the other de
partments. Of gents' furnishing goods
there seemed no end , nnd much was of
the finest quality. There was also a com
plete stock of boys' and children's cloth
ing.It is impossible to enumerate , much
less describe in detail. The stock , as a
whole , is larger and better than even this
firm lias carried before , anil the estab
lishment takes rank as one of the finest
as well us the largest in the west. It is a
credit to the city , and will be appreciated
and patroni/ed not only by Council
Binds , but by the surrounding country
for many miles about.

He had a very poor idea of the west. Ho
had been arrested in Omaha , but was
allowed to go free provided ho skipped
out of that city at once. Ho hurried over
to this side only to bo picked up by the
police , and was told to leave hero or go
to work on the stone pile. He wanted to
get back to the land of baked beiins ,
, John Evans , of Detroit , and John
Paxtou , of St. Paul , were in about the
samit condition , having boon driven out
of Omaha. They were allowed to go on

and watt a lather by trade. He had came
ever to i > eo the circus , lie had carried
tlio sand bag bceauso another lather had
threatened to liok him. Ho was allowed
to return to Omaha.
Olllcer UnthaiiK brought in a young
man whogavo his name as Saml.Nickloy.

who claimed that ho was on his way to
Fremom , Neb. , where ho and his brothers
had some teams at work on a railway
contract. Thu olllcer hud boon informed
by some 0111x0118 that ho was going
through the passenger conches of an incoming -
coming train , and they thought ho acted
like a pickpocket , lie explained that he
expected Ins wife to moot him hero , and
was watching for her. Ho showed up all
right , and was allowed to go again.-
M. T. Kite , a wagon maker from Fut-
ton , Kan. , was lined as a plain drunk ,
Fred Cash , a .young but hard one , said ho
was hunting for work. The judge- told
him ho need look no further , as ho would
give him work on the streets.
Tom Hughes and John Woodward

prace. It appears that Hughes went Into
Woodward's saloon and commenced us
ing abusive language , and Woodward
threw him out , and following kirn up
knocked him oil' the sidewalk. Jhoy
wore fined f" > .00 each and costs.
Woodward was also charged by a
painter named Langdon with threaten

and will probably bo dropped , there

A IloylHli Wanderer.
About midnight Thursday night a little
fellow was found at the dummy depot
who claimed to bo lost , anil who could
not or would not givu any information
about himself further than that his mime
was Frank Gibbs , that he was about 8
years old , and that his folks had just
moved over hero from Omaha. Cliiet
Matthews took the little fellow homo
with him and there kept him till yester
day morning. The little fellow then told
him ho lived somewhere near the blue
front furniture store. On taking him down
Broad wa p to that place , ho said lie lived
across' the creek. The boy guided him
then to a house on Mynster street , where
the folks were found , the man whom the
boy called Id's father giving his name as
Bowman. The folks did not seem to be
much concerned about the boy , and in
formed the chie.f that the little follow had
run away to go to the circus , but had
boon brought back and his shoes and hat
taken from him so that ho could not go
out again. Ho got away , however , and
did not turn up again until about 10
o'clock at night. Tlio doors wore locked ,
and sifter trying to get in lie was told to
go around to { ho other door , but instead
of doing so lie loft again and was not seen
until he appeared in the morning with
thi ! officer. Thu unconcern of the folks
and the recklessness of the young lad
were alike noticeable , and served to
rather mystify than clear up the case to
the minds of the police.

our A. B. C. Soap on the most magnificent scale ever attempted by any one firm.
Three years ago we started out to sell A. B. C. Soap on its merits , to-day thousands of the most
intelligent housekeepers in this and all the principal cities of the Union use our A. B. C. Soap and marvel
why it is not used in every home.
The principal grocers throughout the Union tell us one reason why its use has not become general
is that
Tias not been sufficiently advertised ; nnd another reason is , because many people who have bought it , did
not give it the necessary and intelligent attention it deserves. They did not read the directions , and
finding that it would not wash by laying A. B. C. Soap on top of the bundle of soiled clothes , they fell
back to five cent soap.

but we find that our most intelligent customers say that u is
and arc enthusiastic and speak in the highest terms of praisn about it. Why don't you advertise it ? "
It is therefore that we are making this extraordinary effort to bring A. B. C. Soap to the notice of
every intelligent person and in order to induce every one to buy it , and continue to use it until they hav
fully tested its merits , we say to them
And send them to us during the months of June or December next , and we shall distribute among yon
an array of presents which , for magnificence and usefulness , surpasses everything heretofore offered by
any one firm.
Send four cents in stamps and we will send you a catalogue , which is now in course of prcparatioa
nnd which will give you a full description of all the presents and the mode
Those who have not used A. B. C. Soap , of course , will ask , "what is it ? "
A. B. C. Soap is our own invention , and all who have used it cheerfully concede to it the merit ol
being the greatest improvement ever made in domestic economy. A. B. C. Soap , and the MODE OF
WASHING WITH IT , is as different from all other soaps , and the old way of washing , and is as
. nuch an improvement over the old system , as traveling by railway is over that by an ox-cart. A girl of
18 , or the most delicate person , can wash
in ono hour , more clothes with A. B. C. Soap , than the most robust , with the hardest work and slavish toil
t \n wash with the best soap , and the old way of washing , in three hours. And withal , A. B. C. Soap is
t\ie \ mildest and sweetest soap ever manufactured. We warrant you can wash baby with it and it will look
* M sweet and fresh as a rose.
Remember , that while ycm can use A. B. C. Soap in anyway or manner you please , it is best to use
{ \i\ccording \ to the directions on the wrapper , which will also teach you the new way of washing.
Remember , also , that in order to obtain one of thesn presents you must save your wrappers and send
. t n i to us V > mail , during the months of June or December next.
