Royal Perry , who was found by the
police sleeping in a lumberyard , was bo-
fora the court yesterday. lie had on Ins
person , when arrested , a largo revolver ,
and about f'JO , besides a watch and
chain. He explained tin : presence of the
revolver by claiming that the boys had
told him that Council Blutl's was a hard

low burst into tears as ho told how ho
was supporting a widowed mother , and
this touching the tender heart of the
judge ho was allowed to go free.

authorized to contract bills in the name
of the company.
Yesterday a young sparrow flew into
Maudiil's store , and on being cantured

canary seemed to bo endowed with a
wonderful amount of hospitality. It
proceeded to feed the young sparrow aa
though it had been its mother , the little
one not bolng old enough to take to the
feed in veteran manner. The pair of
feathered prisoners were watched with
much interest by those in the store , anil
after a little the sparrow was given its
liberty. It How out of the door into the
street in a bewildered way , but soon
caught the cries of the older sparrows ,
who wore evidently watching and wait-
lug for its return. The young sparrow
tin ally joined them , and the meeting was
fully as interesting as the prison scene
in which the canary took so well the part
of hostess.

1'rntrctliiK Homo Iintior.
Tl.o Knights of Labor at , a recent meet
ing took action to secure , if posiiblo ,
more protection for home labor. Ihey
appointed a committee to wait upon the
council and pre.Mjnt a written request
that hereafter no work should bo let to a
contractor unless the contractor would
agree to employ home laborers in prefer
ence to outsiders. The can e leading to
this request was that in times past con
tractors having large amounts of work to
do for the city have brought laborers in
here , who remained only while
the work was in progress , and
the workingmcn * living in the
city the year round were not given
employment. The knights wanted the
council to put into their contracts here
after .some clause which would prevent
tins injustice if possible. The original
petition of the knights has disappeared
and it is said to have been loaned to one
of the reporters of an evening paner who
failed to return it. Its purport was given
to the council afresh , and inconsequence
the council adopted the following resolu
tion :
ItvHolvcd , That the contiaotnrshoso bide
are accepted for any public work bo re
( inested to employ Council Hlulli laborers
lor all \\ork where practicable , nndlinu
Mich labor can be piocmod tit reasonable
\siL't'-t , or s.iimt rates as arc paid elsewhere
for the vime work.
The Knights naturally look at this
resolution as amounting to nothing at
all. It is simply an invitation to con
tractors , and has no eilectin reaching the
desired protective point for which the
Knights started out.
Tim Knights desire the council to pass
; > , resolution in ellVct as follows , and to
have it made u corporate part of any and
all eonti acts hereafter for city work :
Itosolu'd. That the contractors \\hoeblds
aie accepted tor anv public work bo i vim i red
to employ Council Hluffs labor for all work ,
wlien such labor can be piocined at le.isou-
able \\nies.
Some of the leading members of the
order declare that they will have the
matter up in the assemblies again , and
take frcsli action , so as to force the coun
cil to either refuse to do anj tiling , or else
give them the desired protection. They
say they do not want any such meaning
less resolution as that passed by the
council.
The Union Depot.
The acceptance of the Tenth avenue
ordinance by the Union Pacilio railway
is an indication that the expected im
provements will proceed now rapidly.
The track will soon bo laid , the now
freight depot erected , and all the desired
advantages resulting therefrom are to bo
looked for at once. The public see more
in it , however , than the .securing of ad
ditional freight facilities , however im
portant these may bo to the heavy whole
sale houses in that part of the city. The
move is looked upon as the key to the
problem of the union depot. It is the
entering wedge. The establishing of the
freight house , and the laying of the
track , is to be followed by an enthusias
tic move for a largo union depot , accord
ing to those wjio are best posted in what
is being planned. It scorns that there is
nothing now in the way of this project ,
and the only delay to be looked for are
such as are inevitablv connected with the
arranging of the preliminaries of so extensive -
tensive a project. The citi/ens began to
doubt whether the Union Pacific was to
take the ordinance , but now that it is ac
cepted , they begin to have more hope
and doubts as to the future arc disappear
ing rapidly ,

Ihe New Club lloonin.
Architect Maxon has completed the
plans for the club rooms of the Council
Hind's- club , but the executive committee
have not yet approved them. This will
probably be done , though , in a day or so.
The plans show three dining rooms con
nectcd by arches , two parlors , two cloak
rooms , one for ladies , the other for gen
tlemen : two closets , two toilets , kitchen ,
china closet , pantry , oflice , etc.
There is to bo a regular club house en
trance on Main street behind the First
National bank , and this will bo of cut
stone and nicely decorated. It is the
intention to increase the membership to
203 , and the committee having that part
of the work In hand are securing names
as rapidly as possible. Such business
and professional men as have not been
yet called upon , need not wait but can
hand their names in.
Musical McGlbonya.
The McGibeny family is to appear at
the opera house Monday evening , May
10. 'Ihoy appeared hero about a year
ago and met with great success. Those
who heard them at that time will be more
anxious to hear them again , while there
are many who missed that opportunity
who will gladly improve the present one.
The family is certainly a wonderful one
and their concerts are very enjoyable.
The programmes do not embrace as
much classical musio as many concert
companies oiler , but there is a sweetness
to their musio which renders it wonder
fully popular. The family have just had
a successful winter tour in the far west
and in California , and are now on their
return. One of the charms of the con
certs given by the family U that they com
prise both instrumental and vocal artists
thus giving a great variety to their outer
tainiuonts. _
Skipped By the Ll ht of thu Day.
A short time ago A. W. Wyman , the
well known Keg Creek farmer , hired a
man to work on his place. Yesterday
morning the man was not seen arounc
the place , but U was thought that he was
out In some of the fields at work , until
investigation showed that ho had dlsap-
> carcd altogether. It was also discov
ered that there had been some thieving
: oing on. The most important loss wns
VS in cash. Word was sent to this city to
In ; police to look out for the fellow , nnd
Jlllccr Dynr found him at the dummy
lopot. On being arrested and searched
ibout $1 was found on his person. He
mil invested in a new shirt and new hat ,
vhlcli would account for the balance of
ho money lost. Thu fellow had little to
say , and was locked up to await a hear-
ng in court.

POSSIBILITIES OF BASE BALL.
iVhat the Future May flrlnc Tor
IMlchurs nnd Catchers.
St. Paul ( ilobo : Age has wrought a
great change in basis ball. There is as
ntich dillercnco between the base ball of
en years ago and that of to-day as there
s between a prairie schooner and a rail-
vay train. When George. Wright , Ross
Jarnos , Harry Wright , Al Spaulding and
Xctler twirled the sphere pitching was
lill'ercnt from w hat it is now. This do-
lartment , in fact , has undergone the
rreatost change. The pitcher now is the
tiling clement ; then he was not , because
hero was no latitude allowed him.
Straight arm and over arm throwing was
lot allowed , and curves and twists were
inknown. If a man had suggested the
alter at that time ho would ha\o
icon shot. The pitcher simply
ent the ball over the plate. The nearer
10 could have approached hitting
he bat the butter he was. No strategy
vas used except that of varying tiie
> pecd ot thu ball. Scotes used to run so
iit > h tha't it took two men to score. Hut a
clnuigo began. People tired of .slugging.
They wanted some science. The inana-
; ers caught on to thu demand. Restric-
ions began to bo taken from the pitcher ,
t'hc lirit was forbidding him to throw be-
ow the waist. IIo was allowed to throw
ho ball anywhere below thu shoulder.
. .ator ho could throw unvwhcre ho chose ,
ind the game became one of pitchers.
The hard-worked pitcher has had otic of
varied experience. Ho used to stand
jack and look on. There was no picking
thu shoots oil' the very edtro of the bat ;
10 ininaitiiru jail about his head ; no
juckskin about Ins lingers ; no liver pads
on his chest. When the balls began to net
whiskers as n result of ehaiigo in pitch-
nsr , ho found it necessary to
jogin to protect his hands , until
to-day they look , when ready for ser
vice , like the pillow in a child's cot. A
friend of the catcher then conceived thu
dca of a chest protector and thu bat
tered end of the battery's armor was com
plete. In spite ot all these contrivances ,
iqwevor , split and broken lingers , wrists
and anns are still plentiful among catch
ers , and it is thought that before many
years the pitcher will catch through
.Kidded holes in a fence or in a scoop not
itanding a few fcut one side of the bat
ter. A genius has now struck a plan
which he will spring shortly , through
means of which a ganio can bo played
without pitcher or catcher. A "small
Krupp gun will be placed in the pitcher's
box to take the pitcher's place. An ironbound -
bound , steel-plated fence will bo placed
behind the batter. A small boy will be
secured to load the gun , put the base
ball in it and lire it at thu batter. The
Fence will send back the ball on the re-
Doiind. Even if a few small boys and
batters are killed , what dilTuronco will it
make ? The world is full of both. The
umpire will be clothed , according to the
plan , in steel armor. Death-dealing foul
tips will no longer have any terror tor
bin ) , while the argcr and yells of the
umpires in the grand stand will not
phase him. Possibly lie will be supplied
with revolver , slung-shotand dirk to per-
Miado the plavcrs that he knows his busi
ness. The ollicial scores will bo encased
in a wire cage until the chasers have
been chased into their quarters. That
will protect them from the wrath and
vengeance of the man whose ledger ac
count of errors grows quicker than they
think it should.
Iiitlainination ol'tho Kidneys.
BA/.AAK , Guts * : Co. . KAN , Feb. 10 , I860.
I have been alllieted with chronic in
flammation of the kidneys. I sufl'crcd so
much pain that 1 could not lie on my
back or lean back against a chair. My
water also contained a chalky sediment.
I tried many remedies , but could get no
relief. I then took two AU.COPK'S
Pi.AsrKits and put one over each kinney ,
making them moot on my back-bone.
These plasters , strange as it may seem ,
cured mo in a week. AH soreness was
gone , and my urine was natural.
R. C. HAHHIS.
The TIIIO System of Advertising.
The Philadelphia Times says the waste
of money by ill-advised advertisements
is nearly or quito as much as would
liberally advertise our trade in the best
channels. Many establishments spend
more for costly circulars and their distri
bution than would present their business
to hundreds of thousands of thrifty deal
ers through widely spread newspapers ,
and a circular seldom reaches others than
a servant as it passes to the waste basket
or kindling box. The advertisements of
our leading retail stores arc as regularly
read in the leading newspapers by men ,
women and children in fami
lies , as the weather , market
and fashion reports. They are
niado as fresh and readable as genius
and skill can make them , and while cir
culars serve tin ) only purpose of starting
the morning ( ire the wise advertiser
daily summons his customers from the
homes of the land , and his advertising is
the life of his trade. Thu fact that there
n not a great advertiser in legitimate
trade in this city who has not gathered a
fortune from his business , while old and
apparently well-established houses have
languished and died , is conclusive proof
that the newspaper that commands large
circles of intelligent and progressive
readers is the open highway to business
success and fortune.
IB Death Painless ?
A Philadelphia doctor , after years of
careful observation , says that our demise
is as painless as our advent to the world.
This is certainly reassuring ; yet notwith
standing thcso great inducements we still
do not court death , and shall continue to
use Dr. Picrco's infallible remedy , the
"Golden Medical Discovery , " for con
sumption , spitting of blood , shortness of
breath , weak lungs , coughs , bronchitis ,
and kindred affections 01 the throat and
chest. It is nncqualcd. By druggists.
\ Four-Hollar Coin.
Dr. William Dickinson says in the St.
Louis ( ilobo Democrat : Within the past
month a $1 United States coin has turned
up in this city , and people interested in
such matters have talked about it a great
deal. I hear the owner of tbo piece called
at thci sub-treasury and was told that the
government never coined such a piece.
This Is a mistake , though there were
never a great many of ( horn coined. The
committee on coinage.weights and meas
ures , which lias the subject in charge and
looks after designs for improving the
coinage in respect to si/.o. denomination
or appearance , frequently instructs the
superintendent ofltlie mint to execute
new patterns or rxporlmbntal pieces , for
nspcclion , and if they arc deemed wor
thy of adoption "thiin , the com-
mitten frames ami introduces the
necessary bill In congress , t'ndcr
this arrangement a scries of coins was
lovlscii In 187i > , Known as the Stella , hav
ing the value of ? ! , United States stand
ard. The design was approved by the
committee and a bill introduced antici-
| > ating a now metalic coin for interna
tional use. Thu coin was the si/u of a
nickel , representing "Liberty head"
turned to the left on tho. obverse , with
" 187l " below , thirteen stars , with ligures
and letters interspersed , denoting the
proportion of gold allov. etc. ; on the re
verse , above , "United "States , " with a
large live-rayed star , "Stella , " in the
cental * , and below , "Onu Stella , -100
cents , " and "Deo est ( Jloria , " and still
below , "Four Dol. " This was struck in
proof. The Stella is one of the set desig
nated metric goloid.thi * other two being
the metric dollar and the goloid metric
dollar. Twenty sets only were struck
early In 1871) ) , to bo submitted to the com
mittee ; a little later 100 sets were struck ,
and still later ! ! 00 sets wcru ordered
coined. 1 huso were oflured to members
of congress and personal and political
friends on paj incut of their intrinsic
valuu. Then -100 sets were coined in 1880 ,
bearing the date of 1879 , and of these
about 'JoO found their way into miscella
neous hands , and thu remaining 150 arc
belinvcd to be still in the vaults of the
mint. Of the original twenty sots , a few
were sold as high as iJlOO , and the prices
of these subsequently coined ranged
down to fron. sfoO to $12.fiO. Separately ,
the Stella now sells for about ! ? . " , and tin
sel of three pieces at ! ? ( ! .50 to $7.oO. The
) ill for their issue , however , failed to bu-
como a law.
That tired feeling and loss of apjietitc
are entirely ovetcomu by Hood's ' Sarsa-
panlla , the peculiar medicine. Try it
nut see.
