True croup never comes without a

symptom is boon followed by a peculiar ,
rough cough. If Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy is given as soon as this hoarse

anxiety may bo avoided ; it has never
failed , oven in the most severe cases.
There is no danger in giving the Rem

The Omaha Motor company yesterday morn

The road , when this work will bo llnishod ,

may bo used jolnlly by both the Omaha
motor nnd Horse railway companies.
The latter company has been anxious , It Is
claimed , to have the bridge motor curs run
around its loop on Douglas , Eleventh , Far-

ottered to pull the motor trains around the
loop with horses. The motor people , how
ever , doubted the feasibility and lot the
horse railway superintendent attach four
horses to one of the trains which stood nt
Ninth and Douglas streets. The horses could
Bc.ircoly move the train , whicli was then de
clared to weigh more than sixteen tons.

Dr. Durycn"thoinew pastor of the Firs 1
Congregational churcli , Is expected to nrriv
in town to-day , nnd. 'assumes , tlie duties oi
his position on Sundiy next. In this cornice
lion THE 13 KK publinn.es the following trib
ute paid by n writer over the Initials ol
"M. Q. A. :
I have read with dnteresl Iho many comj
pllmcntnry lloms in Iho several papers of Ihc
city concerning Dr.Ditryea nnd his choice ol
Omaha ns his futunvflcld of labor ,
I wish to add n few words , not that I feel
competent to pass n filling eulogy upon this
great , man , but I nm of that number who re
joice thai his scholarship , his cultaro , his in-
llucnco and noble- manhood , his magnanimous
Christian teaching , nnd Ihc gracious Influence
of his life , nre to become n power for good lu
this , our western city.
It was uiy rare good foitune , whllo In
lloston , to sit in the lecture- room under Iho
Instruction of Dr. Dtir.ven , und , of nil the
teachers under whom It has been my
privilege to sit , bo seemed to mo the greatest.
Possessing nn almost Inexhaustible fund of
knowledge , ho was apt In Imparting the
same , ns well us excelling In that happy
faculty by which bo won the confidence und
good-will of every heart nnd insplicd Iho
mind with u deeper love of knowledge. Ho
Is n natural nnd cfllcicnt teacher , cither In
pulpit or cluss-rootn , nnd we are glud Hint
his rich endowments and earnest efforts are
to bo added to this enterprising , inngnillccnt
young city. Such wealth as Dr. Dur.xca can
bring to us Is more needed and a greater
acquisition than that of the Goulds or Van-
Hoston papers hnvo commented upon the
probable results of the doctor transplanting
Ills tnctuphyslcal mind from that hotbed of
culture to tlio untutored wilds of the great
west , lUiteiiltincd IJoston need not fear because
cause the doctor's learning Is not indigenous
lo Iho suit nnd chilly clime of "Tho Hub , "
but is of Unit strong , grand , individual typo
not dependent upon cllmiitlo changes , sec ;
tlonul or sectarian limitations. Neither d o
our western friends need stand in awe of the
doctor's metaphysics. It is not of the fossil
variety , which deals only with cold abstracj
tions or far away soarings into the im
mensity of nothingness nfter the unknow
able. On the contrary , his is the true phil
osophical method by which reason and wis
dom are made important factors in the
practical affairs of n real world , peopled by
