Bay that in some way ho got possession
of about | 200 of partnership money , and
a certified cheek for nearly as much
more , nnd then skipped. After hunting
about this city they got n glimpse of him
at the St. Louis house , but he noticed
them and ran away. In the clmso ho
proved to bo too llcct-footod , but lost his
bat in the run. The pohco then began
the hunt for him , but ho evidently suc
ceeded in getting beyond the city limits.
Eddie Lansendorfor , u more boy , about
three weeks ago was playing about the
now Catholic church , nnd boy like ,
jumped from the wall to the ground. In
doing so , ho fell , dislocating his wrist.
The little follow kept the fact a scrrot
from his parents , although the
wrist was badly swollen , nnd ho suffered
greatly from it. Ho shrewdly managed
the wrist so that it would not attract the
attention of his parents , and it was not
noticed until yesterday. A physician
Was at once summoned , nnd the wrist
put in condition where it will have some
chance for recovery from the injury.
The incident recalls u similar one , which
lately occurred in another family. The
boy was fooling with n revolver , in vie
lation of the commands of his father ,
and" he shot himself through the hand.
Ho wont to a drug store , got the hand
cared for , explained to his folks that ho
fell while at play nnd a nail run into it
and kept the real faot a secret until long
after the wound was healed. There
corns to bo not such a great diflbronco
in boys after nil.

The Drlilgo Contract.
T. J. Kvans was yesterday smiling
even more brightly than usual. "You
can announce , If you want to , that the
bridge contract is awarded to the Edge-
moor Iron company , of Wilmington , Uol. ,
thpy being the lowest bidders. There's
no more foolishness or delays , and the
bridge is now going right along. You
can make that announcement , If you
want to. " Of course the BEE wants to ,
and makes the announcement gladly ,
not because it has been in doubt as to
whether the bridge would bo built , but
because there are oven now a few doubt
ing ones , who refuse to bo convinced
that any great enterprises are to start as
talked. Ono after another of the enter
prise predicted bavo been questioned
and doubted by this class of unbelievers ,
and ono after another the enterprises
have started just as predicted. It is grat
ifying to see these doubters convinced in
spite of themselves , and to see their num
bers dwindling down until they arc now so
few that they are hardly worth the men
tion. The announcement of the award
ing of the contract sped along the streets
yesterday and everywhere carried joy
with it. It was astonishing how many
there wore of tno "I told you so" class.
Everybody smiled , inquiries for more
real estate 'began coming in to all the
ollit.cs , and those who liave property
stiffened their prices a little and began
figurine over prospective advances. The
real rotate dealers are looking for rapid
and sudden advances over present
prices. The property has been held
here so low and thcro has been so little
of the fictitious values that all concede
that investments cannot but bo safe and
remunerative. Even those who have been
certain that tiio bridge would be built
have been planing on dealing more
when the work was fairly started , and
now that all possibilities of any delays
are removed a greater boom than over
may bo expected , and ono which will
keep booming.
The work on the bridge is to commence
within ten days and will bo completed
within a year. The sub contractors wore
notified yesterday of the result of the
award , and the preliminaries of securing
material began before tlio sun went
down. The general description of the
bridge has been given before and the
public is quite familiar with the general
design. With the choip and easy com
munication which this bridge will estab
lish between the two cities , the bottom
lands will jump into demand for various
purposes. Grout changes are to bo
looked for within the coming twelve
muntlis and this season will see many of
It seems certain now that the Union
Pacific wiil proceed with the improve
ments contemplated and planned some
time ago. It is stated that arrangements
are being made for putting on nt once
about 200 men to proceed with the con
struction of the tracks , buildings , etc. ,
planned some months ago. In fact
Council Bluffs is having sunshine and a
promise of much more. In the manu
facturing line there is much encourage
ment. The canning works have proved
so successful that the work of enlarging
has begun and the capacity of the works
are to DO increased 50 per cent. The
purchase of the iron works by Mr. Ogden
is being followed up by his active and
pcrbomil enlargement and supervision of
the business , and with experience and
capital these works will soon bo among
the leading ones in the west. The work
has commenced on the new sash , door
and blind factory of Stroek Bros. These
gentlemen have in the cast been success
ful in this line and they come hero en
thusiastic over the prospects of doing
still better here. The handle factory is
kept busy , Hattonhaucr's carriage fac
tory has been enlarged , and in fact thcro
are numerous enterprises which indicate
that manufacturing interests here are on
the boom.
The iron and ties are on the road for
the no ft motor line to Lake Manawa.
The hotel is raised , and the boathouse
and other improvements there are nearly
completed. In driving about the city
one is surprised at the number of resi
dences going up. There never has been
so many built in any ono season as have
been put up thus far this year. Houses
still are in demand , nnd it in diflicult to
got any desirable house to rent.
In fact , Council Bluffs has many rea
sons for keeping up a regular thanksgiv
ing day. 'I ho business men scent to be
having an unusually good trade. The
outlook in all directions seems to grow
brighter and brighter , and it seems that
nothing can now stay the progress and
prosperity of the city.

of other gentlemen , "Well , I am happy ,
I have from timu to time purchased sev
eral pieces of property through J. G.
Tipton's agency , Tipton would advise mete
to buy this piece and that piece , and I
did so , and tome times did it against my
own judgment , but it has all panned out
right , and to-day I can take a handsome
profit on any of my purchases. You can

Treatment and Baths Given Ladies by Mrs. Dr.
Richards on Tuesday , Thursday & Saturday.
Elrctricity is a remarkable naturalagent which has long been known and utilized
as a remedy for disease and continued experience has enlarged its sphere of it-eful-
ness and improved its appliances by which it is employed until its utility a nu virtue
has become second to no other known remedy , in the treatment of certain forms of
disease. This agent is employed here in all its most serviceable forms by the aid of
large batteries , static machines , electric cabinet baths , electric water baths , the elec
tric chair and electrodes for treating all parts of the body. We are prepared to do
all that can be done with these great remedies. In cases of Rheumatism , Neuralgia ,
Paralysis , Spinal Irritation , Rectal Diseases , Nervous Discates in females aiising
from Uterine disorders and many other chronic and subacute troubles , it stands at
the head of all known rcmcdie * or methods cure. A thorough study of it for year *
and the successful treatment of hundreds of cases , after all other remedies had fail
ed , is sufficient evidence of its great worth and perfectly satisfies us with its good
effects on the diseased body. In the jjreat hospital's and sanitarians of ATnenca
and Europe , electricity is leading all other methods of treatment. In all leading
colleges the professors are teaching electricity as one of the potent remedies and a
special chair is appointed in man * v of them. Many ol the ablest physicians of all
schools are making a specialty ofclectricitv to the exclusion of almost everything
ehe. This great remedy has often fallen into disrepute by being recommended and
used bv persons , and physicians , perfectly ignorant of its properties and powers ,
who \v ould as often advise and use the wrong current as the right one or depend
upon it in diseases for which it is not adopted. We are sure that \\hcn the people
become educated In the use of electricity for many diseases with which the body
is afllicted and find the creat good therein , the medicines and patent righted nos
trums upon which they now rely will grow old and dusty on the shelves. Electricity
is nature's great remedy and to fully understand and skilfully apply it is our effort
and aim in life.
