Incipient Heroes and Heroines.
Tbo closing exercises at the Lalto school
yesterday afternoon wcro very interesting
and enjoyable. Tbo little boys and girls
taking part reflected much credit upon their
teachers. Rccontly the school organized a
regiment , composed of seven companies , nnd
all the children are imbued with such a mar
tial spirit that all the songs were patriotic ,
and the majority of the selections and essays
wcro of the same nature. The hall was
niculy decorated , naval pictures and revolu
tionary sketches by the pupils adorning the
blackboaids. The exercises , conducted by
Miss Valentino , wcro opened by the school
singing , "Praise Xo tlio Lord , " which was
followed by an essay on "Hurgoyno's In
vasion , " Miss Llzzio Wills ; the hymn ,
"America , " by the school ; essay on "Tho
Navy , " Miss Myrtle Coombe : essay on "Tho
Revolution , " Frank Haskcll ; selection read

"Holl Call , " Joniiio Doilson ; essay , "Tho
Flag , " Blanche Bay ; "Star Spangled
Banner , " by the school ; essay , "Rev
elution , " Myrtle Hughes ; "Red , White
and Uluo" by the school. Then followed
the presentation of a beautiful landscape
painting by the members of Company A to
the school janitor , Mr. Kohl. The exercises
closed with an essay on "Independonco" by
Miss Blanche Robinson. Tlioso deserving
of particular mention were Miss Jcnnio
Doclson. the young violinist ; Bert Butler
and Julius Rosonwlg , Miss Blanche Robin
son and Frank Huskcll. The oss.iy by the
last named young gentleman calls for espec
ial notlco. Tim narrative was clearly ex
pressed and delivered in a truly juvenile and
artistic manner. The audience was curried
uway by the efforts of the boy and relieved
Us pent up feelings by rounds of applause.
Major Butler wiw c.illcd upon and spoke
in most nattering terms of the pupils and
their teachers. Captain Mills and Lieuten
ant Turner were next called upon and both
re-echoed the remarks made by Major But
ler. The school was then dismissed , the GOO
pupils inarching out to the good music fur

The Christians entertainment nt Uoyd's
opera house will bo Henry 12. Dixey and
Hloo & Dixoy's big burlesque company in the
beautiful burlesque "Adonis. " The first per
formances of this play a year ago uro stll
fresh in the minds of Omnha theiitre-goors
Two performances wcro given to the full ca
pacity of tlio house. Of the lasting quail
tics of "Adonis , " the Now York Sun hus the
following to say :
The rcninrlcublo run of GOO consecutive
nights \vns accompanied last evening at the
Bijou opera house by Air. Henry E. Dlxe.v as
Adonis. It Is the longest run that Now York
has known at any theatre in tills city for
twenty years. Indeed , the run of 000 nights
is altogether remarkable , and lias never boon
known of more than a dozen pieces in the
world's history. Mr. Uixey phiyod with hie
usual vim and spirit. He seemed to bo in
nowise tired by the constant repetition of
the sumo lines , tuo same songs and the same
dances. There was n crowded house in at
tendance and everybody was happy. There
is hardly a doubt nltor last night's perform
ance that thopieco will becontinued through
out the summer.
Christmas week nt the Eden Musee will bo
replete with attractions. Madam Lo Uoy , a
woman with a head of hair over six feet in
length , will bo one of Uio attractions. Big
Eva Loveland , the 00 pound fat woman , will
remain ono week longer , and in all parts of
the house the attractions will bo good. A
special bill has been prepared for Christmas
This evening nt Goos' Staat theater Prof.

ing and second sight. Ho lias a talking skull

of liowers , spirit hands , spirit locks and
many other illusions in the black art.
Frank D.iniels , in "Littlo Puck , " will bo
the attraction at LJoyd's opera house on Fri
day and Saturday evenings of this week. As
Old Sport Mr. Daniels nov. r f tiled to delight
his auulcnces , but when ho appeared in a
play of his own hero last season his friends
wore doubly delighted.
At the Gnipd opera house II. Grattan Don
nelly's three-act musical farce , "Later On , '
will bo presented on next Monday and Tues
day nights and Tuesday matinee ( Cdrlstm.ib ) .
Tiio piece has been pronounced a success. Of
the stars very little need be said , for Frocl
Hallcn's Joking , dancing and singing , and
Joe Hart's comicalities and banjo are worthy
of a cordial welcome. Few things tmoro
graceful and pleasing than the light inusic.il
novelties , daint.v dances and marches , in
which the piece abounds , could well bo im
The performances will be given nt Mctz' '
new hall on Sunday , the 23 , and Christmas ,
December 23. To-night a comedy with songs
in three acts will bo given entitiled "Da

little bister at the piano , and his able assist
ants , the liradcr boys , from Miss Mason's
room , discoursed sweet strains at intervals

utmost capacity by admiring parents and
friends , and a most interesting programme
was successfully carried out.

If the housekeepers of Omaha could
all BOO what TIIK UKK man saw last
evening greatly would they marvel ,
and if their Christmas orders were not
already planed , thev'shortly would be.
Suoh fowll Such beofll Such inut-
toiilll I3ul for your benefit n fuller de
scription will bo given. In the llrst
place , the beautiful festoons of ever
green , the sprigs of holly , with their
bright red berries , attractively speak
of Christmas cheer from every part of
the largo show room. The west wall is
closely liung with the fattest , most np-
potlzing-looking quarters of young beef
you over saw. Raised nnd fed by the
Bay State Cnltlo company , those tliroo-
yonr-old Hereford bounties dress to
weigh over 1.000 pounds each. They
were killed with especial onro by Hammond
mend & Co. , nnd it is worth anybody's
lima to mnko n special trip to see the
quarters before they arc cut. The
Southdown mutton and lamb are fat
and luscious enough to mnko ono hun
gry after a full meal , just to look at
thorn. The carcasses have been .deco
rated in a mnstorly way by seine adopt
with artistic knlfe for oven a butohor'H
knife may bo made tj > do artistic work
on the leafy while and pink covering of
a well-fed animal. Then there are
young Chester white porkers , for roast
ing whole , to delight an epicure. In
game there nro venisonbluck-tnil deer ,
elk nnd nntolopo , with rabbits and hare
as fat and plump as you could desire.
Then the poultry ! Such a dinplny of
Turhoys , Geese , Chickens , Ducks,1'rai-
rio Chickens and Quail as would bewilder -
wilder a hotel steward to select from.
There is nothing wanting that the sea
son alTords from pork tosaitMtgo or plain
beef to the most doliento llcsh a table
over MIW. Do not fail to hco Adam
Snydor's Christmas stock at 1.011 Far-

handsome display is broken into , but
go early to see an uncqualed sight.

"Our Christmas rush is hardly upon us
yet , " said Assistant Postmaster \Voodaul
yesterday morning to a Bnn reporter , "but
we arc beginning to feel the Increase In our
business. If you want to see some luird
worked servants of Uncle Sam , come aiout d
hero about Monday.
"Tho thousands of people that nro anx
iously expecting suitable gifts this season ,
through the medium of the malls , and w1 o
sometimes grumble at a little delay upon the
part of the postonlce authorities when they
don't receive their packages right on the di't
of time , have but a faint conception of the
enormous pressure of worl. that the postolllco
employes have to contend against at certain
seasons in the year , particularly Christmas
and Easter tide. At all times a hard worked
set of public oflicials , such festive anniver
saries as Christmas mean to them a big pile of
"It is perfectly astonishing , " said
Mr. Gallagher's assistant , "what
articles people send through the mails.
Look here , " and taking up a small box made
out of card board , loosely tied together with
blue silk ribbon , was exhibited through nno
of the shattered edges , a mince pie. It bore
the address of one of most prominent soci
ety men in Omaha. Another rather dilapi
dated-looking package , plastered all over
with post.igo stamps that bore the image of
lur Bilttanic Magisty , was discovered to
CJiitaia a real English plum pudding. Among
other presents en route through thu mails
were elaborately constructed albums , the
easiest looKiug slippers bearing masculine
addresses , silk handkerchiefs , smoking caps ,
shoulder braces , so fearfully and wonder-
f-iily constructed in silk and satin , an to bear
no afllnity to the olu time lioosior "gnllus.11
BJO'U markers und Illuminated cards with
out number , were being placed away in the
cairiers' case's , ready for delivery. This
morning will c iinuicnco the quadrupled work
of the postmen. Their extra duty is under
taken by the carriers in very good humor ,
and , given decent weather to perform then-
work , the local force don't ' com
plain. It is only when they
have stormy weather to contend against that
an Inclination to kick is evinced.
It was learned that packages need not bo
exposed at the ends ; it is sufllfient that they
ba securely tied with ribbon or tivnu in bucli
a way that if considered necessary by. the
authorities , the contents can bo examined ,
' Of course" said Air. Wooclard , "our clerks
do not open every package they handle , but
a fair percentage of the receipts are sub
jected to our inspection. "
"Wo are almost snowed under this year. "
said Manager Hunton , of the Puciflc express
company , "The amount of goods handled by
us Just now , comes nearly breaking us up ;
despite the fact thut wo nave extra men on
nnd every possible convenience for handling
the work. Nothing bulky comes here. All
that class of business is delivered by our
wagons nt the various depots direct. It takes
sixteen wagons to kef > p up with the patron
age given to our company , and
afrer a long day's ' work wo
llnd a big overlap each night , "
The appearance of the store room of the
Pacilio company bore evidence to the truth
> l the statement , for thnro was barely stand
ing room ou account of the packages piled up
in every direction.
Superintendent Potter , of the Wells Fargo
3Xpress company , describes the Christmas
) usincss as fully one-third larger than at
my other year In his experience. To meet
.ho extra pressure a number of the clerks
rom the accountant's depaitmcnt have hade
o bo pressed into the service of the fonvard-
ng agent's oflico.
A special feature of tlic.buslncss done news
s the greatest number or parcels iccclvad
'rom England and Ireland. In both the post
mil express olllfcs this feature was particn-
arly noticeable. The outward foreign bust-
icss was icpoited brisk , bearing testimony
o the fact that though divided by thousands
if hind and sea the recollections of the dear
incs lar away was still fresh in memory.
