refused to hell out to Keatlcy.
" There arc wheels witliin wheels , "
and because I proposed to bo a man

A Star-Route Case Deckled.
The stiir-i'outu case against Luke
Voorhis , of Cieyonne | , has finally been
disposed of in the United States court in
Oniiiha. Voorhis was sued by the gov
ernment to recover back money paid
I to him under an order of expedition
from Fargo to Pembina. The govern
ment brought suit against him at Chey
enne , and his attorney , Hon. J. L. Web
ster. of Omaha , tiled an answer. Heforo
coining to trial the suit was dismis-sud
and transferred to Omaha by securing
' service on Voorhis in this city , the object
being to sue him away from his homo.
Mr. Webster tiled a demurrer to the peti
tion hero , and it was sustained. The
government filed an amended petition ,
and to that Mr. Webster put
in an answer. Hoforo it came to
trial. Mr. Douglas , the government at
torney , proposed to agree to a slate of
facts to bo agreed to 'tho court. Mr.
Webster consented to this if ho would
Ftato such facts as ho could prove , and
not tacts which he know could not bo
disproved. Thereupon Mr. Douglas
presented a state of tacts upon which ho
was willing to vest his case , which charg
ed , among other things , that at tlio time
Voiirhis obtained the order of expedition
and increased pay and reducing his
fiohediiln time from sixty two to forty-
two hours ho was already carrying tlio
mail in forty-two hour.s , which fact the
government did not know. Mr. Wobbler
ngre'ed to the .state of facts , and tiled
iv demurrer , upon which the case
was argued on the uniler.standing that
if the demurrer was sustained the cu.se
was to bo dismissed.
In deciding the case , Judge Dut'dy
said , among other things that , admitting
tliu fact that Voorhis was e.irrying the
mail faster than sixty-two hours , never
theless ho had a right to ask the govern
ment to make an order allowing him
moro pay for faster time , for the reason
tliat under the original contract ho nada
right to pay for faster time , and tlio gov
ernment had a right to pay him for this
extra compensation if ho performed tlio
Eorvicu. biieli notion on tlio part of
Voorhis did not constitute fraud , and ho
was purfuutly justified in doing what ho
had done , and under such stale of facts
the government had no right to recover
thn money.

A Now and Nint Trick.
Chicago Herald : "Saw n now trick out
in Iowa the oilier day , " said a traveling
man. " 1 was slopping at a little station
on tlio Northwestern , and the hotel was
close to the railroad track. Tlio through
passenger trains don't stop there. In tlio
party sitting outside alter dinner was a
man who had a line gold watch , with a
case of extraordinary weight , Ho said it
was the heaviest watch ease inude , and
the strongest.
" 'Thoro is a funny tiling about tnis
witch of mine , ' ho .said ; 'it ' is strong that
1 can put it on the railroad track and let
a train .11111 over it and it will not bo dam
aged in the Icnst. '
" 'Hight on Iho rail ? ' queried one of the
party.
" 'Yes. I'll ' place it right on the top of
the rails , whom the wheels run , and it
won't bo hurt a particle. '
" 'Bet you the cigats you dasscnt do it. ,
"Tho proposition was promptly ac
cepted anil thu whole crowd pro.-icnt in
cluded in llui payment of the wnaur , no
matter who lost. In fuw minutes a train
was soon approaching , when tlio owner
of the watch wont out to the track , nut
his timu-poaeo on Iho rail and ( fieri
walked back to iho hotel porch and r -
sinned his c.huir as cool as a cucumber ,
The train came thundering on , ami iho
crowd gQtuxcltud. They stood with open
muulhs , and thinking what a nhamn it
w : > s that an infernal fool uhonld put such
a line watch on the rail * to bo .smxbhcd
into Miiilhorcens. When the locomolivo
struck the spot where the watch 'hail
been placed the crowd groaned and
fancied they could see bits or gold Hying
along with the dust. But tlio owner of
tlio watch sat ipilotly smoking his cigar ,
mill , as soon as the long train had passed ,
ho walked out , reached down and picked
his watch up from the .iido of the nil , as
perfect as it il had been in his pocket all
the time.
"You see , " ho said , as wo lighted fresh
cigars at the oilier fellow's oxpunso ,
"thoro is no danger in this trick provld-
J'llf yeti placet your watch near thu citgo
of tiio .tail , whiro iho whuols have worn
tlio face smooth , and where thu slightest
dislurbatico will cause it to slide oil' in-
sldutho mil , The wntch case is oval ,
and that leaves an opening for the air
to gel under. If Iho jar of the ial ! did
not CUUMI thu watch to fall oil' the press
ure of the air from thu approaching train
biirely would. 1 have performed that
iitllo Irlck hundreds of times and never
null with an accident , Onoday a fresh
traveling man from St. Louis saw inn do
it , and ) io at oneu dcclarc.d that that was
nothing -anybody could do Unit. Shu )
went out in front of another tnun and
put his watch on tiio rail. After iho
train hrd bussed ho found.hU . u atoll
about fory | rods Up the track. It was"
about as big nb a atiucer und rs thin us a
piece of ligbt ctmlbQa.rd. Ho had iiuidu
the fatal mistake of putting the watch
near tlio end of .1 rail and so nicely bal
anced upon the top of the rail that it
didn't fall off. This trick is just like any
oilier you want to know how to do it.
Wlmt'a In n Nntno ?
Chicago Herald : "If there's anything
in this world that I do like to sec , ' said
a railroader , "it is an appropriate name
for n railroad , What , for instance , is tiie
sense In naming a little ono-horso rail
road that runs from Chicago ten or fif
teen miles north the Chicago , Evanston
& Lake Superior rnllroad ? As : v matter
of fact , very few of our western roads
are properly named. Illinois Central is
good , and so is Chicago & Northwestern ,
but Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul , and
Chicago it Alton are not well named. The
roads have outgrown the names. What has
the village of Alton to do with giving dis-
tiuctiveiicss to the C. & A. ? Anil of what
significance tn tin : great Burlington sys
tem is tlio town of Quincyf Wliat's tlio
use of keeping Fort Wayne in tlio title of
the Pennsylvania ? Haiti moro & Ohio is a
good title , but what excuse is there for
putting the word St. Louis in tlio title of
a railroad company that runs no nearer
St. Louis than Chicago ? Michigan Cen
tral and Wisconsin Central are fairly
good titles , hut , now much better Chicago
& Ohio would have been for a road that
runs down near thu central part of Ohio
and stops than Chicago & Atlantic ? 1 go
in for appropriateness , 1 do , and I hope
our railway godfathers uf the future will
have a betler cyu to Iho proprieties in se
lecting names. '

CROWDS OF PEOPLE PRESENT

Anil C < intl3" I-'rtbrlcs K.xlilbltcd ,
Falconer's great dry goods store wa ;
crowded with people last evening , the
occasion being tlio grand opening of tin
season , with u magnificent display. Lout
before tlio doors were opened the side
walks in front were crowded with people
wrapt in admiration at the exhibit made
in the show windows , which had beet
transformed with selections from tlu
fliH-st goods in the store , consisting of nil
tlio latest cllccts in dress goods , evening
silks , erocades , stripes , laees , funs , fin
trimmings , novelty dress goods am !
books. The cxpiession wns general thai
the show window display was the tines :
over nnulo in this city. At 7:1)0 : ) the doon
were thrown open and before 8 o'clock
tlio store was thronged with citi/.cns whc
had come to pay their complimonls tc
the merchant prince of Omaha by in
speeting the most complete , clocant ami
largest stoek of dry goods and noveltiej
ever bhown in this city , or outside of Ne\v
York.
On entering the store to the left is tin
silk and dress goods department , eon
sisting of a complete line of .silks , satins ,
brocaded goods , with their imported
triinminjrs in passemontairc , etc. The
counters and shelves on each side of thi *
department were tilled with combination
milts , embroidered roues , specialties in
French meltons , evening similes , cash'
meres , albatros cloth , crape cloths ,
French inosellen cloths and special im
portations of line goods , no two nliko.
Kntcring the store at the right of thn
first entrance is the fur department.
There is not an exclusive fur house in
thn country carrying a liner line of fur
wraps and fur trimminirs than there is in
this department at Falconer's.
The stoek of Indies' and children's
underwear is very largo and as shown
consisted of all the lincst makes in the
line , besides direct importations of line
knit and silk goods.
Between the two entrances to the store ,
in show cases on counters and shelves ,
is as fujl and complete a. stock of gents'
furnishing goods as is carried by any ex-
ejusivo gents' furnishing house in the
city , consisting of the finest mabes of
plain and dress shirts , collars , cull's and
neckwear. In fact nothing seems to
have been ovcrlooaed in stocking such a
large and general store , even the wants
of the people Doing supplied by some
thing new in connection with dry goods ,
consisting of a book and stationery de
partment , stocked with the latest and
standard novels and general literature.
Hovond is the linen , llnnncl and
blanket dcdartinont , consisting of the
linest importations of linen , John S.
Brown and Win. Liddell & Co.'s makes ,
insets , of cloths , with napkins , especially
imported by Falconer , and a line of
goods whicb it is his special pride to
carry.
There has been a long-felt necessity in
Omaha , especially with the dry goods
houses , for an exclusive and large dress
making establishment or department ad
jutant to general dry goods. For years
it is a faot that fine trade in this line has
been compelled to. Kto other places ,
like Kansas City , Chicago nnd even Now
York for line dross-making , rather than
pay the cxhorbitant prices and accept
the jjoor work generally done in dress
making in this city. After much consid
eration and to meet the demands
of his large trarte in line dress goods , it
is a credit to N. H. Falconer , that , with
his customary enterprise , lie has recently
added , at a largo expense , a mantua-
inaking department , necessitating a com
plete refitting of the second lloor of the
store , niaking thereby an exclusive dress
making department. Mr. Falconer has
secured the services of Aladamo Tierney ,
of Chicago , who will have special direc
tion and charge , with twenty expert as
sistants of Mantua ranking. It is need
less to say that this department was a
great attraction for the ladies hist oven-
ing.
ing.In connection with this department is
the cloak find shawl department , with
Mr. J. II. McCarthy , of New York , in
charge. In this line Falconer has the
larcest stock in the city.
The basement has been entirely refitted ,
and tilled with an immense stoek of bric-
a-brac , candlesticks , inkstands , match-
safes , placques , in bronze and painted ,
qisqiio work , children's toys of all kinks ,
music boxes , Japanese lacquered work ,
plush dressing cases , manicure , perfume
cases , and gents toilet cases. An elegant
line of imported Swiss goods , hand-
carved , dolls of all kinks , dressed and
undressed , from the lovely wax to the
china-face and rubber. In willow ware
goods there in a complete line , in baby
baskets , scrat ) work , knitting and nearly
every kind nindo.
Uusincss was entirely suspended in the
store last evening , } he order being given
that no goods were to he .sold , the entire
attention of the largo force of clerks ,
being directed in receiving , welcoming
and showing the immoiiho stoek to the
throng that attended the opening. The
