To-nlpht nt the opera house there Is to be n
grand rally in thelntcrestsof thoChautauqim
cnteri'rise. Mr. H. Koscwutcr and Colonel
Chase , of Omaha , will bo present to express
the feelings tit Omaha , In regard to the enter
prise. Ucv. Dr. Keeso nnd perhaps others
will make addresses. The addresses will bo
short , and thuso In charge of tlio meeting
will ururige so that there will bo nothing
tedious In the programme. The enterprise is
one that concerns every man , woman and
child In the city , and hence the opera hollso
should be crowded. A crisis is reached and
it ro ts witn the paoplo of Council Bluffs to
dccldo whether the enterprise shall go on or
not. A few have been working 7culouslv to
secure whut will result In great benellts to
all. This community should now rally to
their support , and show by their presence
und encouragement to-nlglit , that they so
endoito the movement us to warrant Its being
pressed to a success. In thu critical time ,
the enterprise should not bo jeopaidized by
any lethargy or shirking. No elti/en should
excuse himself from attending the meeting
to-night , by any slight pretest. Those who
liuvo worked so hard should receive the en-
coiiiagemcnt of a ctowded house und an
The present situation will bo explained in
full. The enterprise is just in that condition
where It can be successfully stinted , if the
people of Council Bluffs say "Go ahead. "
Let the meeting to-nlglit bo no uncertain ex
pression of the feeling of this community.
AVork on Lower liroadwny.
Owing to the heavy rain of Friday night it
was impossible to do anything on tlio paving
yesterday moinlng , but work was resumed
at noon. Lower Broadway i.s now the finest
drive , in the city , and yesterday afternoon
some of the horsemen at the park did their
exercising there , us the track was too heavy
for use. The work that has been done there
Is above criticism , being the llnest job In tlio
paving line that has over beeu done for the
ity. The material used is the very best , and
10 inspectors have been very careful to see
: mt all the work was propcrlv performed.
Thomas Haley , foreman for Wicklan &
) o. , has charge of the men , and his keen eye
s constantly open to see that tlio Instructions
f the contractors are earned out in every
etail. The orders are to reject all inferior
miteiial , and tlio work already completed
hews that they luivo been obeyed. Ed Pierce
s inspector Of tlio blocks and foundation ma-
erlal , and every defective block and ques-
ionublo is "side-tracked"
plunk promptly - by
ilm. The tar is under the supervision of
leorgu .lacobs , and the two gallons per yard
cquired by the contract is carefully
pread , and at the proper temperature ,
'hero uro no inequalities in the paving , and
Ls surface tor the milo and a quarter oin-
iletcd is as smooth as a lloor. It is as solid
is can bo , the part first paved being us linn
is much of thut put down lust year. There
ire u largo number of visitors on the grounds
jvery day from Omulm , ana the majority of
hem arc looking for investments. Many of
hem arc laboring men , who propose to build
n homo and move to this side of the liver.
. .ots on avenue A , the line of the new motor
nilway , are selling well , and before the end
of the season this thoroughfare will be
thickly lined with residences. The grading
of this street and laying of ties is nearly
completed , and when the time comes it will
lot take long to put everything in readiness
for the operation of trains. At the bridge
ill Is rush and bustle. The work there has
men delayed somewhat by the continued
ligh water , but the mammoth structure is
johig pushed to completion , and will bo
ready to open In eight or ten weeks. Work
on pier No. I , near the cast bank , is about
completed. The southern cylinder is down
to bedrock , lllled with masonry and sur
mounted by Its capstone. Tlio northern
cylinder will bo completed Tuesday , when
work on pier No. 'J will bo commenced. A
runway is now being built out to where It
will bo located. Pier No. 2 is about com
pleted. It is to bo raised lour feet more ,
from which point it will bo built upward In
Lwo sections , similar to the ono on the Ne-
liraska show. 1'ho largo dent In the north
ern end of the pier made by the driftwood
has not yet been straightened , ns the current
was too strong to permit any work in that
direction to bo successfully done. The water
is now falling , and it will probably bo ac
complished this week. The work in all
iiranchcs is going on very favorably , nnd

The skeleton which hangs in the window
of TIIK HER ofllco , with the interrogative ,
"What is it I" attracts much attention and
excites great curiosity.
It 1ms developed the fuct that Council
Bluffs people take much more Interest in an-
ntomy than is generally supposed. It also
shows how little , after all , Is known about
the construction of animals. It i.s amusing to
hear the comments and conjectures. The
mysterious hones have been called almost ev
erything. One careful inspector declared It
was a mugwump. The long foot and leg ,
caused some to declare It to bo a kangaroo.
Others are satisfied It is u. monkey. Some
say it Is n coon , others u cat. One joker hud
the audacity to stick his head inside the door
and shout "Who do you snspoctl" Another
ono tried to shako hands with the skeleton ,
nnd saluted it with "Hello , George , what are
you doing here } " Ho appeared to discover
his mistake , and apolotnzed uy saying be
thought it WHS his1 friend of the Manhattan ,
Another ono accounted for the sharp vcrtc-
bnu by declaring that It was u cat , killed in
bhttle. While it still hud Its hack up. The
ono WHO came in singing "It Is the cat , "
didn't breathe long enough to explain fur
ther. Thomas Fosterln , tlio engineer , is ol
the opinion that It is an otter. Ho says thai
many years ago some ono here had two pel
otters , which disappeared mysteriously nni
were never seen again. lie thinks It Is th (
skeleton of one of these.

A llnck-ncycil Tale.
Yesterday morning a young man nppcarci
at the police headquarter * and stated that he
hud been robuod the night beforo. The talc
ho told , while probably true , did not miproi,1
his heaters enough to warrant thu issunnci
of papers for anyone's arivst. Ite said hi
was drinking some and had got a hack ti
take him about the city. At o ! > o place tin
driver put in with him a female , and getting
nnnther man to oct-upy the box and drive tin
team , he also got Into thocurriago. They ul
went to a disreputable placet not fur from tin
city. After staying here for seine time hi
came to his senses and rcall/ed the fact tha
ho hud been relieved of bin wallet. Ho wu
out 135 according to his own story. So fa
as heard from ho has not boon able to occur

KntcrprlRtnt ; Gamblers.
At one Clark street gambling house
early in the convention proceedings
four years ago a Kentucky anan was per
mitted to win $5,000 at faro ono night ,
says the Chicago Tribune. The word
"permitted" is Used advisedly , as the
truth of the story could bo supported by
allldavits if the gamblers who put up
the job could bo induced to give away
the facts in the case. Ho was u loud
mouthed man , this same Kontuckiau ,
aim lost no time in spreading the news
of his good luck. As a consequence the
Clark street hou o was literally jammed
with visitors for the next few nights.
\Vhatwu4 the next move V "Brace"
games wore played without intermis
sion ; not the slightest pretense of fair
ness was allowed. As a consequence
the house was a steady and enormous
winner. It is said that ono night alone
! j ( ) ,000 was cleared up.
Tim gamblers missed it in ono partic
ular , however ; they failed to rope in the
Kontucklan again , as had boon or-ifrln-
ully planned. Ono of the employes of
the hou o had been intrusted with the
jgbof clinging to the man from the Blue
Grass country until ho could , in a day or
two , induce him to return. But the
( ramblers made a wrong , calculation ;
they misjudged the capacity of thoii'
friend to absorb Robertson county
alongside of a native who literally
hud boon brought up on the bottlo.
So the employe fell by the
wuystdo ; the Kcntuokian wus ontiqed
into a little gume of draw nt u room in
one of the hotels , and there ho not only
"dropped the roll'1 which' ho had
gathered together in the gambling
house , but all ho could bqg or borrow
. Over l-'lve Hundred KoHcuod.

London letter to the American Musi
cian : Guido Hans von Bulow is the bon
of a Gorman novelist who , although well
known in hib own country and in Franco ,
where hia romances have been trans
lated has yet never taken a place in the
oromost ranks of literary men. The
future muaician did not belie the usuaf
traditions of genius. Ho was destined
by his parents to become a magistrate
without reference to v 'hat.inight have
been the particular bent of his inclina
tions , and in furtherance of this aim
was sent for his first studies to Dresden
and then to study to Leipzig. AMI
child ho had shown remarkable apti
tude for music , and this taste had been
fostered by a fervent admiration for
Fran/ Li&/.t , then on a triumphant tour
throughout Germany. In spite of the
openly expressed disapprobation of his
parents , young Bulow braved their dis
pleasure , and resolved to call alone.
and without introduction , on Liszt , and
frankly ask his advice and opinion as to
his musical abilities. He did
so in 1848 , when Hichard
Wagner was beginning to revolutionize
the musical world. Liszt received the
young man kindly , and promptly dis
covered in him a nature whoso tenden
cies and aspirations wore akin to his
own. Ho urged him to cast aside for
ever the forensic cap and gown and
give himself up entirely to his art ,
whatever obstacles might bo placed in
his way. An advice so congenial to his
wishes was implicitly followed. Hans
von Bulow became the pupil , tlio com
panion , the friend , and eventually the
son-in-law of Liszt.
It cannot honestly ho said that von
Bulow was over a model husband. He
worsniped with fanatic devotion a mis
tress whose sway was more powerful
than a wife's Music and to her alone
ho remained constantly faithful. More
over , his Intimacy with Wagner , the
man of excessive and extravagant
genius ; with his father-in-law , whoso
romantic imagination indulged in fan
tastic ( lights , unfitted him more and
more for a hum-drum conjugal life. In
his exalted veneration for two such
powerful and unconventional individu-
alltics.tho young man became estranged
from ordinary occupations and com
monplace duties ; and when ho passed
from the heights of enthusiasm to the
prosaic plain of domesticity ho becomes
irritable , violent , or morose. Ono day
Cosima quietly informed him that she
had grown weary of the life she led ,
and that Hho would no longer bear his
continuous ill-temper. Furthermore ,
she announced not only her intention
of obtatningadivorco.butof contracting
another marriage. The man she had
chosen was Richard Wagner , Bulow's
Liszt opened his arms to his second
son-in-law as warmly as ho had opened
them to the first , without , however , any
abatement of his affection for Bulow.
Stranger still , the two husbands saw no
reason why Cosima's determination
should ul tor In any way the tenor of
their mutual friendship , which was
continued on the old footing , and. as if
everything was to bo extraordinary in
this singular episode , Mine. Richard
Wagner , with tha full consent ot their
father , carried away to her now homo
the U'o children born of her union
with Billow. Later on , when she was
lying dangerously ill at Lijcorno after
the birth of "a third son , she
begged Tier second j husband to
send for the first , wlwyns brought
to her bedside by 'hi successor.
Bulow , once more Unfettered , availed
himself of his legal liberty to make a
pilgrimage through the world , preceded -
ceded In every- fresh halting place by
the reputation of his marvelous talent.
Ho appeared to have undertaken a mis
sion of propaganda , and. spread every
where the knowledge of Wagnor'scom-
positions. As leader of the orahostra
ho had conducted "Tristan and Isolde"
in more tiau | ono Co 'm ° Hy > llll(1 llul
roquontly taken a share in thp furious
controversy then raging about the
maestrO's works by wielding his pen to
defend his'idol. Tlio Now Musical Ga
zette of Lolp'/.ig published his letters ,
which show remarkable literary facility
and power. However , Bulow was not
exclusive in his appreciation. Catholic
in his artistic taste , it was duo to him
that the French composer , Berlioz , was
so frequently heard beyond the Rhino
a noble homage to genius rendered by a
German to an alien.
In 1870 , ( luring the Franco-Gorman
war. ho gave seVen pianoforte recitals
at Florence , interpreting with his rare
talont.Haoh , Beethoven , Liszt , Wagner ,
Schumann , Mendelssohn and Chopin.
At eacl | sitting ho played for nearly.
three whole hours , und always withou
notes. His memory was prodigious ; lie
hud been known ut Munich to lead the
orchestra for the opera of "Tristan and
I Mil do" without tbo score on his desk.
His success in Floi'i'iico was enormous ,
but ho imperiled his popularity by an
unwarrantable not. Just bi'fore tal'dng
his departure ho wrote and sent to the
papers a violent condemnation of Verdi
and his operas , which was greeted with
unanimous execration by tlio Italians ,
who consider Verdi a demigod. The
admiration llulow had won was changed
into hatred , and his most enthusiastic
partisans turned against him. In Spain
lie exposed himself to a similar fate by
an offense of the same kind , and instead
of applause reaped only unkind criti
cism. It was through the vagaries of
his uncertain temper that so many of
his friends became his enemies.
lie dually returned to Berlin , but , far
from having been taughtby experience ,
ho wantonly exposed himself to the
severe and lasting consequences of an
other rush and unpardonable folly. Ho
wont to the opera one night , iirid tlio
next day published in u daily newspa
per an' insulting letter , in which ho
ironically compared the orchestra of
the Royal Opera to the orchestra of the
circus , and pronounced it "shameful"
and "disgraceful. " The manager of
the circus , incensed at what he con
sidered an ad rout to his musicians ,
took up the cudgels and called Bulow
to account in print. The artist , with
out a moment's hesitation , again sei/ed
his vengeful pen , and wrote a letter of
apology to the manager of the circus ,
humbly begging his pardon for having
thoughtlessly compared his excellent
orchestra .vith the very inferior one of
the Koyul Opera. This occurred in
1878 , when Bulow was occupying the
post of K'lpolmoister to the omnuror.
The scandal caused by this indecent
polemic was so great that intinuilion
came to Bulow to send in his resigna
tion , which wim promptly accepted.
A few years ago , after a prolonged
absence , he found himself once more in
Berlin , and the incident being appar
ently forgiven and forgotten , he re
ceived a most llattoring ovation at a con
cert ho gave. After having been re-
culled three or four times by deafening
cheers , lie was prevailed almost by force
to sit down before the instrument and
play another piece. Satan knows what
deviltry possessed him , but in mad de
fiance of tlio public ho began the "Mar
seillaise , " and went through it with
intense energy and feeling , unheeding
the auditors , who after the first mo
ment of incredulous surprise , rose to
their foot and attempted to drown the
hated strains of the French revolution
ary hymn in groans and hisses.
In 18&5 ho played in Paris , where ho
had not been heard since ISliO. Ho was
then so doubtful of the attitude of the
audience that ho had prepared himself
for a failure ; but evidently no trace of
rancor subsisted in the Parisian mind
against the alien , for the hall was
crowded , the attention almost religious ,
nnd the applause at the end of the per
formance so loud and unanimous that
ho felt all his old prestige.
Hans von Bulow has altered but little
in the last few years. Ho is very much
what ho always was , short , with marked
features , his fiuio crossed by u need
lessly prominent double eyeglass , with
an imperial and waxed moustache ; but
ho has become stouter , and his face is
decidedly thinner than of old.
After a few years of royiug independ
ence ho married again. His second
wife , an elegant looking woman of
about thirty-dvo years of ago , was an
actress of the theatre ut Hanover.
With an ungovernable tomncr , tlio
slave of sudden impulses , fantastic ,
moved by strange and unexplained pas
sion to unreasoning und inexplicable
actions , wrecking in ono hour the odi-
llco laboriously Constructed , ho has
more than the usual eccentricity of
genius. His complex nature is shown
in the first words that escaped him
when ho heard of the death of Kichnrd
Wagner : "Poor Co&imnl What u grief
for her. "
His talent alone has always remained
strong , unadulterated , worthy of the
two muetors ho idolized , to whoso names
posterity will add his own Lis t und

were built of heavy blocks of btone and
covered with a white cement or plaster.
The b liluings themselves stood in a
shallow moat , surrounded by tall jmlm
trees , heavy bushes of various kinds ,
and herbage growing wild and uncul
tivated. Tliebo , then , wore the famous
'To we rn of Silence. ' Truly they wore
well named. Save for the clicking of
our bhoes on the smooth stones , the lit-
u 1 swaying to and fro of the branches
of the tall palms , and the occasional
Happing of wings by crows and vultures
on thu trees , not a sound was hoard in
the languid , breathless air. The hot
tropical sun beat heavily down on the
bare , white walls , and everywhere still
ness and silence reigned supreme. "
"How do the I'ar&ees bury their
dead ? "
"When you reach the top of the
'Tower' you will Ilnd that the entire
circular surface is divided into three
smaller circles , and between each cir
cle is a narrow pathway. The circles
are divided again into a great number
of small , shallow spaces , or receptacles ,
as my friend called them , also separated
by narrow pathways for the bearers of
ho body to pass. The top of the 'Tower'
is surrounded by a sort of puraput , which
hides the surface from outside view.
"Now comes the strange part of the
Purooo burial custom. 'It was the teach
ing of our great prophet and master , ' '
said my companion , ' 'that the dead
should not delilo the earth. Accord
ingly , no dead Parsee is laid in the
earlh , but his body is exposed to all the
fowls of the air , to more quickly return
to the dust and the elements from which
it camo. Huro in the centre of our
'Tower' well down
you sue a deep ,
which we put together the dry bones of
all the dead men , women and children ,
rich and poor , great and small. For
the dead there can only bo equality. '
'Wo next went to what is known ns
the llou o of Prnyoi a low stone-
arched building with colonnades all
around. This is the house where thu
friends of tlio deceased remain while
the body is placed oil the 'Tower. ' It is
here that the sncrcd lire burns day and
night , year in and year out , always
watched by a faithful priest whoso duly
it is to feed the Humes with precious
woods. The air in this House o
Prayer is thus redolent with tlio pun
gent aroma of sandal-wood. The corpse-
bearers live separate from the outer
residence , and after each funeral they
go to the bathing-house , change their
garments and purify themselves from
the dohlomcnt of having touched tlio
dead. J ust as wo were on tlio point of
taking our leave 1 saw a small proces
sion of white robed lifiuros marching
over tlio narrow stone bridge to ono of
the 'Towers' and disappear in tlio small
square opening in the wall. AJy com

for I noticed that his whole demeanor
Doreoptibly changed , as with bowed

take place only at sunrise oi ut sunset.
"Suddenly the pjaeo soumcd to bo
