Omaha was favored with delightful woathcr
r , for her observation of Christinas yesterday.
A clear and cloudless sky , laughing sun-
shlno and the balmy nlr of an early spring
day prevailed. There was not the slightest
indication of snow , and merry-makers who
did not cheese to walk whirled over the
streets la buggies and carriages. Heavy
clothing and wraps were uncomfortable and
the garb of spring was worn by about every
body. Joy and plenty prevailed every whet e ,
and marks of contentment and happiness
t wcro on the visages of every one met in and
I out of doors. The hotels and restaurants
made special efforts and the dinners served
wcro models of culinary art. In the various
county and city Institutions the Inmates were
kindly cared for. Jailer .Foe Miller ratified his
liberality toward his charges by giving them
n grand and luxurious dinner , which was.
highly appreciated by them.
Among the many pleasant features of the
day was the Omaha Turnvcrein celebration
nt night at Germaulu hull. Between HOO and
400 wcro present. After twelve numbers
hud been danced , mi intermission was taken
and the Christmas trco standing on tlio
stage was stripped of Its f rtiltago. Some ot
the gifts received elicited great laughter.
Thcro wcro no blanks , and everybody drew
a present , some of which were very hand
some. Following this Prof. Kummerow ,
teacher of gymnastics in the Turnvcrein ,
was prcseutcd'Wlth a handsome sealskin cap
and pair of mittens. Dancing was again re-
ftuined and was kept up until a late hour.
Among well-known individuals who wcro
the recipients of public attention was llttlo
Lottlo Domain , the flvo-ycar-olu girl who
plays so successfully the part of ' "Tim the
Waif in "Tho Lights o'Loudon.1' The little
lady was given a special Christmas tree
loaded with presents at the Metropolitan
hotel last night. It was the first time llttlo
L.ottio had over seen such a tree and her delight -
light knew no bounds.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. C. S. Hlggnns
Was presented with a line silk hat by a num
ber of his employes at the St. Cloud , Mr. A.
8. Kltchio making the presentation in a neat
and appropriate speech.
Ofllccr Ward was agreeably surprised yes
terday by receiving a valuable diamond ring
from a friend.
M. J. Duck Icy , foreman of the Br.i : stereo
typing rooms , was presented yesterday with
n hanOsomo gold watch and diamond s < : arf
pin by admiring friends.
Many employers .mado glad the hearts of
employes yesterday with substantial and ap
propriate gifts.
How tlio GliurcliCH Celebrated.
Yesterday was a memorable Christmas
with the congregation of the Westminster
Presbyterian church who formally took j > os-
session of their now and first church edifice
located on the corner of Twenty-ninth and
Mason streets. This society is only n little
over 0110 year old , but members embrace
men of energy and push and when another
ycnr rolls about it will see the numbers dou
bled anil the church free of debt. Until yes
terday the pastor , Hev. John Cordon , and his
flock have been holding services In Troll's
hall , on Lcavonworth street , and the occu
pancy of their new church yesterday was a
Bourco of extreme gratification. Though the
interior Is not fully finished the services wore
none the less duvout and Interesting.
Hov. John Gordon preached In the morning
taking his text from John 1UI1 : : , "That
Sabbath was a high day. " and said :
consider Just n few of the elements combin
ing to make this a "high day" for us. It is
Sunday. Nothing moru beautiful than the
idea of Sunday , u day when every wheel
stops and every man rests , Uertiuse men
have Immortal souls , because the lifu is more
than meat and the body than raiment , bo-
caiiBO there is u God in Israel therefore
Sunday.
It , Is Christmas. Our thoughts fly off to

morning when the news Is carried far and

Bwccping across the midnight sky praising
God , announcing peace on earth , proclaim

It is Christmas , the day of children , the
day of the beginning of the kingdom of
heaven among men , of the incarnation ol
God.
It Is the day when the Lord's table is
spread and wo sit down at the "m.v tie feast ,
whereby all good Christians do show fortli
his death till ho coino.
It Is the day when the doors of a new
church building are opened that within its
walls men may for the first time worship the
Lord God Almighty. What does It mcar
that for months past the strong horses have
been drawing great loads of material to this
Bjxit , and that to the accompaniment of ring

amongst men ; It means that west of tin

At such an hour , when tinder all these up

it has seemed to mo that a few words shouli

lenry MyerH Stabs 1'otcr Fnrrell
During a Saloon How.
A drunken bully named Henry Myers
nado n murderous assault on Potcr Karrell
i the Hrlck Exchange saloon yestc.-day
ftcrrtoon and succeeded In leaving a six-
nch cut across Varrcll's breast and would
uvo killed him outright had ho not been
rcvcntcd. Myers 'and his brother Fred , In
lompany with Henry Snyder , were cclebrat-
ng Christmas with a beastly carouse , and
by the tlmo they reached the Exchange
uloon they were in that exhilarated condl-
lon that inflates ones Ideas of physical
> rowess to infinity. After ordering drinks ,
hey refused to pay for them. The bartender
hen demanded that they leave the saloon.
: mt they insolently i of used to do so , one of
: hem , Fred , remarking that ho had cut
ii 1 out of a policeman in DCS Moincs , and
ivould carve any man that attempted to put
iiim out or tried to arrest him. At this the
oungers seated ai-ouiul the tables jumped up
mil pressed forward , expecting to see a
bloody row. They were not disappointed ,
Tor Henry Jerked out a knife , but instead of
.ising it on the burly Bui tender , ho singled
out Peter Farrell , otio of the smallest and
most inoffensive of the spectators , and
stabbed him. The knife struck on tlio loft
shoulder , laying baio the bone , and making a
wound that extended to the breast bone.
The blood spurted from the rent In tlio
wounded man's clothes , and the spectators
seized Myers , and after a desperate struggle ,
in which two or three men were slightly cut ,
they succeeded in disarming him. The par
ticipation of Fred Myers and Snyder in the
melee , on behalf of the murderous assailant ,
made the affair mot oof a riot than a mere
fight , but when the knife was wrested from
Myers , the three hastily loft the saloon and
ran south on Thirteenth street. The patrol
wagon with a squad of policemen was sent to
the scene , ami after a long chase the des
peradoes were captured In u ravine nearly
two miles south of the scene of the cut
ting. At first they showed fight , but when
Captain Green , Sergeant Mostyn and Oflloor
Hurrigan advanced with presented revolvers ,
they broke and ran for a grove near by. The
police followed , and in a few minutes had
the trio in irons and were escorting thorn to
the patrol wagon.

Spends Christmas in .Jail.
Yesterday when Jim Gordon attired him-
in his best holiday suit ho found that the
only thing lacking to complete his outfit and
crown his happiness was a plug hat. Ho
suddenly remembered that Fred Verchoval ,
who roomed at 1U11 Center street , had gene
up town about an hour buforo ana ho de
termined to go to Fred's room and appropri
ate his tilo. This ho did. Still later Fred
came homo and also determined to rig him
self out in his immacuhito nttiro. A pro
longed search for his nil ) : hut revealed tlio
fact that seine thief had been there before
him. Ho strode angrily out on the street to
leave word with the police wncn ho happened
to meet Gordon with his rusty suit and shin
ing hat. Something about tlio tile looked
strangely familiar , and yielding to the impulse -
pulse ho snatched the hat from Gordon's
head , when to his astonishment on looking
liLsicloof it ho saw his own initial "V. , "
worked by a lady friend. Gordon turned two
or thrco colors uiul stammered an attempted
oxplanationbut Verchoval called u policeman
and Gordon cudcd his Curistmas in the
lock-up.

Kill's Iiltilc Joke.
Chicago News : To iv nuinbor of' his
intimates a few evenings ago Mi1. Sum
Kayx.orof the Chicago conhorvatoryun-
buut so far as to toll ono of his oxpcri-
unccdof his recent trip abroad. "There's
quite ii town over there they call Lim-
non , " lie began , "but there was very
little English , you know , about it when.
1 was there , it was very American.
From 'is royal 'ighnciM down to the
bootblacks the tendency of the British
intellect was toward the formation of
American habits and customs as illus
trated by Buffalo Bill and his wild
westerners.
"I had been in town only over night
when I ran across two Chicago iiews-
pnper men Vance Thompson anil the
younger Busby. Together wo bet out
to see what we could HCO. Wo found the
entire population headed for the "Wild
West" show. Somebody said 'is royal
'ighness would be there on the usual
free pas * , t > o wo went , followed the
crowd , and chipped in our few shillings
for the encouragement of homo talent.
We managed to worm ourselves into a
conspicuous position on thoo"y
edge of the track just as the
old coach drove up preparatory
to being pursued by a mob of whooping
savages at $20 a , month and found. Buf
falo Bill rode up alongside and the Brit
ishers cheered themselves hoarse. Ho
glanced in our direction , and , recogni/-
infc Busby , winked for him to help to
get into the coach with his friends and
help fire blank cartridges at the pursu
ing redskins. Wo got in and the old
couch rattled up in front of the grand
stand , whore in the front row , sat 'is
royal 'ighness explaining to the duchess
of something or other that the Ameri
cans was really quite intelligent as a
class , and would doubtlessgot overborne
of their rough and bloody ways us they
grow older.
"It soeins it had been arranged for
'is royal 'ighnoss to ride in the coach
that day , and he came down to get in ,
but as ho put his foot on the Mops he
&nw us inside and so exclusive is he that
it nettled him. Ho wanted us put out
before ho would got in. But Bill came
to our rescue , lie had invited us , so ho
proposed to stand by us. 'You see , 'said
he familiarly to the prince , 'those fel
lows arc half breeds and pretty ugly
ones , too. I don't think It would bo
wise to stir up any fiibs with 'em. They
are bad pithens when they're riled. '
So the prince went back to his perch in
the grand stand and we remained in the
old lcadwood stage.
"When everything was ready they
gave us a couple of dozen revolvers
loaded witli blank cartridges and away
wp wont , the Indians after us and Bill ,
with his cowboys after the Indians ,
everybody blazing away for dear life.
Our ammunition lasted until wo got back
to the grand stand , whore wo drew up
in a cloud of smoke and amid wild aj > -
plauso. The coach had been rescued
and the Indians dispersed. Bill then
rode up and in a stage whisper said that
one of us must play dead. Bushy said
he'd bo hanged if ho would do it , and I
swore I wouldn't mnko such a spectacle
of myself. Vance Thompson was just
making a similar declaration when a
swarm of cowboys grabbed him by the
lo rf and began pulling him through the
window , foot first. Ho was in for it , and
might as well make the bebt of it , so helot
lot himself remain limp and played the
dead man very well.
"Yes , lie's dead , ' said one of the cow
boys. quietly slipping his lingers into
Thompson's watch. pocket. This was so
realistic that Vance was perceptibly
thrilled.
' He's a goner , ' said another , turning
ono of the dead man's trousers pockets
inside out and scooping up the contents.
Van cox could do nothing. To come t
life now would make In in the laughing
stock of 10,000 people , if not the whole
city."Another
"Another cowboy wont for his breast
pocket , where ho carried his letters qf
credit and paper notes. This was too
much. Visions of beggary wore float
ing before his mind , and ho was about
to come to life and make an enormous
fuss when Bill rode up and told his cow
boys that they hnd carried his joke far
enough.

ONE MORE CHANCE.
The unseasonable warm weather has left a few more Overcoats on our hands than we desire
to carry over into the new year , and in order to sell them right now , we have cut the prices all to
oieces. Commencing to-morrow we will offer our very finest Overcoats at prices heretofore asked
for medium qualities. The biggest cut we will make on our fur and plush trimmed goods. There
are not many of them , but we have a few very fipe garments trimmed with good fur and silk plush *
We want to make a sweep with these goods and close them out before we take stock. We invite
: hose who have so far managed to get along with their old or light weight Overcoats , and whom
the open winter has kept back from buying a heavy one , to inspect these garments. They will be
surprised to see how little money it takes now to procure such an elegant Overcoat. This is really
a grand opportunity and the last chance this season.
. In Men's Dress and Business Suits we have a beautiful stock the largest in the city and our
prices are known to be by far the cheapest. Many fine suits have been marked away down in order
to reduce stock and we will save you fully 25 per cent if not more on every suit ,
. . The big trade we have had in Boys' Overcoats last week has broken up the sizes of several
lots , but we still have a fair assortment. The prices are such that we expect them to be cleaned
out soon.
xP"1"3 ! * Sepa/tm .nt > s known to offer better hats for less money than any regular hat house
.n . the city. The fine Fur Derby's which we are selling for one dollar have made a name for us.
No other house sells a hat of equal quality for less than $2 or $2.5O. We have received several
new styes for the holidays. Our finest hats at $2.5O , $3 and $3.25 cannot be bought at any
other house for less than $3.50. $4 and $5. We offer in this department a splendid line of Fur
Caps at just one-half their regular retail prices.
The beautiful and artistic display of Men's Furnishings in our large windows will give an
idea of the variety of goods we have and the * > rices we ask. We invite those who are puzzled
with the all-aborbing question , "What to give. " to look at our window and they will see what
we can offer in the way of presents for gentlemen. Sensible and thoughtful men prefer and
enjoy substantial Christmas gifts of this nature. There is a satisfaction in giving or receiving
a present that one can be seen wearing , a gilt that combines utility and beauty , and nowhere
else can you get such goods so cheap. Our popular system of selling goods at the lowest
prices will be continued during the holiday season. We have no fancy prices and those who
purchase of us can save enough on each purchase to buy a nice present for themselves.
Beginnin Monday we will present visitors at our store with a beautiful holiday souvenir ,
copies of which are displayed in our windows.
All goods marked in plain figures and at strictly one price.
