Mrs. Conrad Goiso has been a sufferer from pleurisy for some time. Tuesday Dr. Macrae tapped her side and took about two quarts of lluid from her left lung. Ho thinks her recovery is now assured. Steam pipes are being laid between the now court house and the county jail. The work of getting the heating appar- ratus in readiness is hindered by a scarcity of mabons to prepare the foundation. The funeral of Mr. Ed. Irons occurs this afternoon at 2:30 : o'clock from his residence. The members of the Bap tist Sunday school will meet at the church at the same hour and attend the funeral in a body. It seems that some steps should betaken taken so that the steps of these who pass through Bayliss park in the wet seasons will not be attended by so much damp ness. The walks are very muddy , when there is mud anywhere. It is suggested that the walks should bo paved with cedar blocks. The club rooms are serving well ono of the purposes for which they were fitted up the entertaining of strangers visiting the city. Within the last month thcro have been over two hundred vis itors from out of the city. No ono is admitted except on being introduced by Bomo member , and the risitors all regis teringan interefating record is thus pre served. The Clark concert company arrived yesterday. Miss Clark is accompanied by her mother. The little lady wno has already won the reputation of being the finest conotist in th land , took a drive about the city and expressed her self ae being greatly delighted with the appearance of the city , and especially with the grand scenery of the bluff sand parks. Little Lutio , six years of ago , ono of the inmates of the homo for the friend less , died Tuesday after a short illness of membraneous croup. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the chapel of the home. This is the first death that has occurred there in over a year. Lutio's mother died at Wintorsot several months ago of con sumption , and since that time the little orphan has been cared for at this insti tution.

Another Day of Injnnct Inns , Contempt ntul Motions TIic Horse Binding Cnsc Accidents Personal Mention. Glimpse * oflinpi-ovcincnt. The work on the approach of the Broadway bridge is being delayed a little tlo by the material not arriving as soon as expected , but there is no waiting or idling , the energies being directed to other work in the meantime. Yesterday the work of excavating for the first pier wns being pushed right along. The first pier is on the west bank of the river , about ten feet from the water cdgo , and the excavation will be to bed rock , a depth of thirty-seven feet only. It was not the intention originally to sink this pier to bed rock , but under the later plans this is to bo done , making it as solid as the everlasting hills. There were also soundings being made for the pier in the middle of the river , a boat being thcro with a gang of men. It is evident that the bridge company and the contractors arc pushing the work as rapidly as possible , and their promise to hnro the bridge completed early next summer bids fair to bo promptly mot. It scorns that in less than a year from this time this now communication between the two cities will bo in active use by the public. Those who have stuck closely to their stores and homes in the central part of the city have little realization of the changes that are going on in the vicin ity of the transfer. One old resident who , in company with a BEE man , drove about there yesterday , expressed the surprise felt by many when ho said : "If anybody had told mo u year ago that I would have seen so many now roofs in this part of town , I wouldn't have believed it. I have always thought that these lands would bo used sooner or later , but somehow I got to thinking it would bo a good deal later than sooner. It don't beom possible. " The number of improvements can only bo realized by a personal inspection , and it scorns strange that so many citi zens rest quietly up town , without see ing for themselves the many changes going on day by day. The new round house of the Union Pacific , one of the largest in the west , is rapidly approaching completion. The brick work will be done by the first of November , and it is expected that the house will be ready for occupancy a month later. A number of the railway men are planning to take up their residences on tnis side about that time , as their will be over hero , and there is not a day passes but what there are numerous inquiries for lots and homes. It is now announced that as soon as the engines are housed herOj a.nd trains kept and made up on this side , the building of shops will follow at once , the work on the Buildings to commence this winter. It is whispered among the railroaders , who keep close track of such matters , that the Union Pacific intends having its main machine building at least six hundred feet long. There are other improve ments to bo made , besides the extension up Tenth avenue. It seems that there are now being worked as _ largo forces as possible , and the prediction is made that greater things than these are yet to follow. , The building activity in Council BlutTs this season seems to be chiefly in regard to residence property. There is such a demand for homos , for houses to rent , for rooms , etc. , that it is evident thcro are many new-comers here. It is difficult to get the exact number of new residences built here this season , but they certainly exceed the record of any previous year in the history of the city. When the school census was recently taken these engaged in that work cure- fully noted down all the houses which they saw in course of construc tion during the two weeks they wore making the canvass. They counted 288. It appears from the postolllco reports , the carriers be ng notified when a now house is occupied , to guide them in the delivery of mail , that over 400 now houses have boon thus completed and are now being occupied. A contractor , who has been keeping close watch , has been making an enumeration , and ho fixes the total number of residences built or contracted for this season as over 720. It appears that while some other cities in Iowa , notably Des Moines , lost voters , as shown by the registry this full , Council Bluffs has gamed , and when the last day of registry is closed , so that the accurate count can bo made , it is believed that the showing will be ono which will bear out the showing oi the school census , by which it is esti mated that between four or live thou sand inhabitants huvo been added tc this city's population during the year , "Real estate is looking up , undthoro'i more activity than ever before at this time of year , " remarked ono of the prominent dealers yesterday , and thii sumo assertion is frequently hoard bj these concerned. Most of the sales like the building improvements , are o ! resilience property. The largest salt this week is that made by O. II. Gor don and J. W. Paul , of Omaha , to Potter tor & Cobb , of Omaha , it being twenty two acres just cast of the fair grpundi and north of AvonucG , the considers tion being over $18,000.

In the district court yesterday then was a further round-up of the saloons There wns little in the proceedings t interest the public generally , and ther wore but few listeners to the tcchnica motions and arguments which attom every stop in the proceedings. It i chielly in the results that the interes now lies , the public having bccom pretty familiar with the main question in the contest.

They were in one sense a disagreeable sot of fellows , for after staying together for fourteen hours they could not agree , and asked the judge for further In structions. Even with this enlighten ment they could not agree , and they re mained in their room for forty hours. Yesterday morning they were as far from reaching a verdict as over and consequently wore discharged. - Recollect the excursion this morning to the gas region. - List your property with Cooper & Judson'No. 120 Main nt.

"Yes , sir.he is as mad ae a March hare"said one gen tleman to another , as they were standing on Broad way yesterday afternoon. The object of this remark had just passed up the street , and ever on the alert for news , the reporter followed him. He was a middle aged man , well dress ed , and apparently a gentleman of the well to do class. In his hand he held a memorandum book , and as he scanned the signs as ho passed them he mutter ed to himself , "Four Hundred and Onel Four Hun dred and One ! Four Hundred and One. Yes , that's the number wife said ; Four Hundred'and One.Broad- way. ' ' And as he came opposite to Harkness Bro's store , the look of anxiety passed from his face and he broke into a laugh. As he passed through the door he said to himself , "I may be stark mad crazy as a loon , but I am not crazy enough to pay double prices for inferior goods , when I can get the best of Hark ness Bros. , for less money.
