sition halt list : evening , drawn out to hear
Citizen Tiulii. Itiis a capital lecture for
the kind. And It Is not putting It too strong
to denominate It the best ho 1ms jet delivered
here a cheerful , bright , bouynnt , common
sense view of the secret of human hnpplntm ,
calculated to do good. An easy , pleasant ,
genial talker , w 1th an evidently warm , sun
shiny heart of his own , George Francis
llilnks that this badly abused world of ouis
IB , after all , n goodly estate , designed by God
to make Ills dentures happy ; that the
sources of happiness , misery mid gloom are
to bo found laigely In the Individual dlsjiosl-
tlon ; that even ical troubles have In thorn ,
When rightly viewed , elements of good , and
that every onohan the power of making life
Jojous and endurable. Citl/en Train ,
moreover , besides being billllant , pio-
found , theoretical and philosophical , has
n rich vein of humor , wlileh was well devel
oped In Homo capital Illustrations of the
gloomy , dissatisfied , captious , fault-llmling ,
austurc , Htialght laced , straight-faced people ,
who make themselves and all aiound them
unhappy. Tlicic was one featuio of the leu-
tuic that the audience liked particulaily.
\Vhilo liberally spiced with apt and humor
ous anecdotes in Illustiation of his kaleido
scopic thcmo which at times convulsed the
crowd with laughter , they wcro all felice-
tous lllustiatloiis taken fiom eveiy day life ,
mid all pointing a good healthy nioial.
Mr. Train made his appcaianco promptly
at half past b o'clock , accompanied bythicc
little girls , who took scats upon the stage
with him. "No one Is awaie of their piy-
coloKleal Inducnco of these little peopleI
didn't know what it meant once , but I do
now. The little ones , the flowers , the birds ,
the butteillles all go together , and act like u
balm to the heait , " weio the Icutuiui's open
ing words. Ho added that ho was soiry he
hadn't thu usual bouquet for the rcimitcis.
" \Vhv don't ' you Introduce the custom of
wealing this little boutonnlcrl" he askud ,
then Omaha would be known us the bouton-
nlcr city. " Ho suggested to the
Piixtoti and the Mlllunl hotels to
place them on their tables along With their
snowy napkins , and then , like Florida , the
land of How01 s , Omaha would bo the city of
boutonnlers. Ho ietuincdthanks to thebonid
of trade for discussing the matter of giving
him a levee , or b.inquet. It ceitainly didn't
come from him , but the town li.id ( .might him ,
and he-is so chii'kcn-he.iited ho can only suc
cumb with the best guico possible. Yet ho
wants no banquet.
Ho load an aiticle from the Omah.i Hcinld
of 1H > 5 , wlikh went on to tell how , je.us ago ,
ho had stuck the tiist pick in the diit of
Omaha for the gicat Union Pacille i.ulroiid.
It ulated how ho had cast his ojcs ovei tlio
gnat \alle.\s west of the MIssouii , how ho
took into Ins calculation the imuienso ajrii-
eultiiial and commeicial ICSOUKIS of N'o-
btaska , the inialculablo mlneial wealth ol
its dependent ics in Coloiado , lUiih , Montana ,
Idaho , Nevada , and thu almost boundless
gold and sll\ei be.uing legions extend
ing to the v\cst to the I'acilio and
far 1101 th into the * Hiitish posseseions ;
how ho found Omaha on the highway of
nations , how ho undei stood the advantages
uf her loc.ttion. Ho detlaied Omahu must
bo a pi cat c ity , and now ho was in her midst
for the pui pose of enlarging her by the build
ing of lot ) cottages and other improvements.
Impressed vvltliTlio importance of his cffoi ts
the boatd of tiade had appointed the undei-
fttgncd committee to tender him u public
banquet at the Hcindon house , signed J.
Patrick. (5. H. Collins , C. W. Hint. Ho felt
ufiaid that these old fiiends had ciosscd the
dark river to their eternal icst. It made him
sud to walk about the streets of Omaha and
jeall o that so many of the dear , old , familiar
liimaero no moio to bo hceu. Ah the
\icissltudcsofllfol Who can tell , indeed ,
what a day , joar , an hour will biing foith ?
Then ho pun ceded to s.iy that ho was not
fishing fora icception at the hands of the
boaul of trade ; that ho cauio
lieio fieo , unfetteied and un
trammelled ; that ho w.ib hero
n lectuier , as an actor , a showman , a ciicus.
u mcnageiio , and that ho did not want to soli
Ins elToits to the boatd ot ti.ide , the council ,
or any other olllclal bodv. Ho had u i ight to
Icctmonndchaigo a qiuntei of a dollar for
it If he felt so inclined , anil those thatwanted
to como could do so and these that didn't
could stay a\\.iy. Ho declined a banquet lieio
j cai sago and coitninly should do so on this
oci asion , with thanks.
A man that don't lear man , God , the devil
or unj thing clso Is Tiain , and ho invited the
audieiu'o to ask him any question they foil
like , ttnd ho would nnswui them ic.idily , cui-

axes etc. In the yards are sixteen
Union Paciflo and thrco city
lijdrants and fifteen electric flro alarm
boxes in connection with these of tlio
city. In each car shop there are stand
pipes with 1,000 of hose that can bo at
tached in a few seconds. Amuigcmcnts
Imvo been made with Chief Galligan , of
the city department , that an alarm from
1 toO in the .vards will mean city boK
53 to the Webster street entrance , and
from 7 to 15 will call the department to
the Cass street entrance of the yards.
This is done to prevent any confusion in
case there should bo a largo number of
cars on the tracks , which would incon
venience the work of the firemen. In
all the shops whore there is the least
danger of lire originating are axes and
other utensils for prompt use.
The shops and yards contain but very
few reminders of other days. The
"Gcorgo Fiancls Train" repair shop
still stands. It was the first Union
Pacific depot hero , which Was located at
the yards. Hero Gcorgo Francis Train
made the inaugural speech when the
first train slatted out. The late Schuy-
lor Colfax , William H. Sovvard , and
other prominent men in the affairs of
the country , boarded Union Pacific
trains at this point. On the west side
of the yards is a shop well known
to the old timers , where
the "Lincoln car shop" stood. The
building demolished some time ago was
thus called because it was made the
headquarters for the funeral car in
which the remains of President Lincoln
were berne from Washington Spring
field , Ills. It is now owned and used by
the Union Pacific company on the Col
There is a great deal of interest that
might bo written about the 'Union Pa-
cillo shops , which are so closely con
nected with the history and pi ogress of
Omaha , did space permit. The men
who have been poominent workers
therein have been in no small way con
tributors to Omaha's prosperity , and as
long _ as there is a city hero the Union
Pacific shops will alwajs bo one of its
notable places where brain and brawn
contribute to elevate the industrial pur
suits of man.

Of customers in our store every day tell the story of the business we ara
doing. We are determined to keep it up , and the more the public favor
us with their patronage , the more will we show them that we appre
ciate their confidence , and will strive to retain it. Just now Overcoats ]
are in great demand , and are going off like hot cakes. The styles and
prices take. But as fast as the piles are disappearing from , the counter *
they are replenished by new and choice arrivals , which our buyer ia
daily sending us from the east. We have new styles to show every day
and the prices we mark them at must be very tempting , as the people
buy them so quick. Evidently there must be a great difference between
our prices and those of other houses.
Other departments that are booming are Gloves , Underwear and Ho
siery. Our corner window this week gives you a small idea of what wo
are doing in the latter lines. Where could you get such a good scar
let all wool shirts and drawers at 45c each , or such all wool seamless
socks at 15c a pair ? Other houses would think they give you bargain ?
when they charge you twice the money for such goods.
