The commorclnl travelers of this
fit ate have shown their appreciation of
Tun BEK'S efforts to afford thorn every
Monday intelligence peculiarly Inter
esting and instructive to the craft.
They have contributed to our columns
fraoly In the past , and during March
moro communications have been re
ceived for our commercial travelers' de
partment than over before in n given
tlmo. Thcro are , however , a variety of
subjects which have not been discussed
by thorn in Tim BKK , and there are
hundreds whoso personal reminiscences
on the road would make intensely inter
esting reading.
To Induce members of the craft' to
contribute regularly to our columns , It
is proposed to offer a thousand mile
ticket , good on Nebraska lines ,
under certain conditions. The
ticket will bo purchased by Tim
BKK , over the line chosen
by the nuccosslul competitor , who must
cither represent a Nebraska house or
travel exclusively in this slate for an
outside firm. Ho must present a letter
from his house certifying that ho is a
regular traveling representative of such
house.
A thousand-mile ticket will bo pro-
ecntod , under above conditions , to the
commercial traveler who shall bo first
to contribute 0,000 words worthy of
being printed in TUB Bun. Ho can
count only that which appears in print.
Don't bo afraid that your communica
tions will not bo acceptable. Wo want
the groundwork of your ideas or anec
dotes or biographies , personal gossiper
( or anything that will interest the craft )
and wo will tone it up if necessary and
put it in proper shape for the printer.
The second best man will bo given a
year's subscription to the daily. Each
competitor must clip all of his commu
nications as fast as they appear in Tun
MONDAY BKK , forward them to this
' Dlllco , nnd sign his full name and the
house ho represents.

The "Flying Dutchman" writes : I
vms malting a river trip to Little Rock ,
stopping at all the ports on the way.
At Memphis , Tonn. , nt the Overtop
hotel , I mot a traveling man from Cin
cinnati who was going up the Arkansas
river selling hardware. Ho was a
young man , dressed in the very latest
style , hair parted , in the middle and
Standing collar , flashy nccktio and
patent leather shoes and a tailor-made
Buit. Ho was told by the dork of the
hotel t was going that way , and ho at
once came over to whore I was sitting
and introduced himself , stating his
business and where ho was going ,
told him that I was going down the
next moining on the steamer Ruth
far as the mouth of the White river ,
and there wait for the steamer Im
porter , Captain John Williams , loaded
with sugar and salt from Now Orleans ,
bound for Little Rook , Ark. Ho said
ho was a now man ; it was his first trip.
Ho would likn to have the pleasure ol
traveling with me , to which I gave my
consent , as I was well acquainted with
the route. The next morning wo
drove down over the levee to the
Btoamor which , for a wonder , was on
time.
time.Wo
Wo had a very pleasant trip and my
now friend was delighted with every
thing. In those days the living was
nrand on the lower Mississippi river
boats. In the evening after tea , wo
had a string band composed of the cabin
crow , to play in the ladies' cabin and
music and dancing made the night
merry. It was early in tho. morning
when wo landed at White river and
wore shown up to the Cumhia hotel.
Now , Arkansas hotels in those days
wore not as fine OB they might have
been. This ono was sot up on posts on
nccount of overflows in the rivor. All
day we hung around the hotel and over
to the river bank watching for signs of
n steamer but none showed up. After
tea my young friend said if he only had
a , llddlo ho could furnish sonio entertain
ment. I said I wished ho had and if I
bad a guitar I could play an accompani
ment to his music.
The landlord who was sitting on the
porch near by , smoking a pipe , got up
without a word and walked away. Soon
ho was bacic with a fiddle in ono hand
and a guitar in the other and came U |
to us saying , "Lot us see what you can
do. " At once wo tuned up and played
n few waltzes. Ho wont away again ,
but BOOH returned bringing with him a
'number of Arkansas belles and their
beaux. The girls all had rod calico
dresses trimmed with white braid , and
brognn shoos. The gentlemen had long
bair , pants in their boots and each ono
had a brace of. navy sixes strapped to
him. They had dropped in for a dance.
At first we refused to play but after being
ing coaxed we consented to play a few
sots tor.thorn and wont to the dining
room. Such dancing , pigeon wings ant
doublo-shulllos you never saw. It was
2 o'clock in the morning when the
dance broke up and wo wont to bed with
n call for the llrjt boat uu the Arkansas
river. No call came ami the dance was
continued every evening for three
days and every morning they would BIIJ
"no boat. " The landlord was doing a
great business at his bar. All hands
wore drinking after every sot at 25 cents
B drink. The two traveling men , how
ever , were not faring quito so well
They were paying $1 per day for board
and making sill the music. It was the
tbo morning of the third day , I got up
early and walked over to the river banl
to euo an Irishman shoveling coal into
ornpty boxes. I said , "Pat , what are
you doing that forV Ho uuld , "Oh
toiou , the boats was here lust night
Two wont up the White river , jind one

wo had been waiting for all that time
The landlord had boon playing us a.m

A Beatrice traveler writes : A large
and enthusiastic mooting of the trr.vol
ing nruii making Beatrice their homo
wati held in the parlorH of the Randal
lioucn.
The mooting was called for the pur
pose of forming the Traveling Men's
Social club of Beatrice.
A permanent organization was
onncu , with A. .T. Conloo , president ;
I. A. Forbes , treasurer ; E. .1. Egglos-
, on , secretary , and H. M. Chase , cor
responding secretary. In view of the
act that Beatrice has so rapidly come
to the front as headquarters for a largo
number of traveling men , these
xlrcady making it their homo felt that
holr numbers warranted them in form-
ng an organization for furthering
their mutual interests , both in a social
way nnd for gaining recognition a ? a
body , locally and abroad. The social
advantages" to bo enjoyed wllLonablo
the various members of the club to en
tertain in a suitable style their friends
nnd members of the profession from
abroad. The Beatrice board of trade
lias most heartily endorsed and en
couraged the club , having tendered
their rooms for the club rooms.
A vote of thanks was extended to
mlno host Hamilton for courtesies ex
tended during the evening.
A grand ball , given by the club , will
formally open the now Paddock hotel
here , the proceeds of which will bo used
Tor lilting up the club rooms.

Jim and the Snnkc.
Old Voracity relates the following
and vouches , of course , for the truth of
it : "Now , boys , what I am going to
toll you , is the good God's truth , and
nothing olso. Down in the state of
Kentucky is a llttlo town called Nichol-
asvillo. Not far from there Is the Ken
tucky river , a fine stream for llsh , and
noted for the picturesque scenery along
its banks. In the summer of ' 87 I was
traveling in that state , and was Invited
to join a llshing party , from Nlcholns-
villo to the Kentucky. Among the nec
essary articles , requisite for a camping
party , taken along , was a jug pf cele
brated whisky , made in that country by
a man named King. Well , wo trot to
the river all right , and went into cam p.
Among our party was a bold , dare devil
of a follow , named Jim , who , as soon as
wo got our tent struck , commenced a
vigorous attack upon the jug. In a
short tune ho got pretty drunk , nnd
getting drowsy , ho said ho would go up
on the hillside and lake a nap. Atsup-
per time I was sent to hunt Jim , ho not
having shown up. "Not far from the
camp I found him , asleep , nnd you can
imagine my horror , when I saw near
him a snake , known as the copperhead ,
one of the deadliest reptiles of thosouth ,
coiled ready to strike. At this moment
Jim lazily opened his eyes , and took
in the situation. Gazing fearlessly into
thnoyosof the snake ho said : 'You
d n copperhead devil , you want to Into
me do you ? Well , my friend ( hie ) , if
you do , you couldn't have ( hie ) chobon
a more opportune moment to do it ( hie ) ,
for by gosh i am heeled , so light in. '
And , gentlemen , would you believe it ?
that snake , complotolv abashed , slowly
uncoiled itself and glided away. You
see it recognized the fact that Jim was
master of the situation full of liquor ,
you know a sure antidote for the deadly
venom of a rattlesnake or copperhead.
Whisky , straight , please. "

Sitting around the radiators at the
Thurston , without any asking , Old
Voracity , gazing through the window
at the down-pour of rain out of doors ,
said : "It was just such a day as this
that Jim Jones fought Clay Dryo's wild
cats at Hustonvillo , Ky. " Not a soul
said a word , and unsolicited O. V. wont
on : "You sec , boys , it was this way :
Some ono had captured two kittens in
the hills and gave them to Dryo , who
raised them. They were nice enough
pots at first , but as they grow to bo
older they became so vicious as to ne
cessitate'confinement. . They were
accordingly placed in a cage , whore
being constantly guyed by the village
urchins , they become very ferocious.
So ono rainy day John Brooks , a regu
lar tough , lame to Hustonvillo , and ,
filling himself with whisky , wanted to
fight something. Somebody suggested
that ho tackle Dryo's cats , which pro
ject , seeming to strike him , bo offered
to bet anybody $10 that ho could whip
both of them single-banded. The
money having been put up , Brooks ,
after having prepared himself by don
ning a heavy overcoat nnd gloves , was
turned into a room about sixteen by
twenty , where the cats had previously
been placed. Pretty soon the sounds of
the combat became audible1 to the crowd
on the outside. Above the snarls of
the cats came the sonorous voice of
Brooks , who said : 'Wo are now fight
ing ! I now have ono of the devils ! Ho
now has mo ! I am choking the devil to
duutli 1 Holy Moses , ho now. has mo !
My right eye is now gone ! I have just
bit off. ono of the devil's oars ! Ho has
torn off my nose ! Help ! Firol Mur
der ! I ! ! ! ! ' Ho was rescued in a
wretched condition , the cats making
their escape , and never being recap
tured. Brooks got well , with the loss
of an eye and a whole nose , and lives
until this day , a confirmed prohibition

J. K. Armsby in his last circular ,
thus feelingly acknowledges the re
ceipt of a bottle of perfumery :
J. S. Kirk & Co. sent us just before
starting on our last trip , a little bottle
of perfumery'with a request that we
use it ourselves , and there was a name
less something about that note that
would seem to imply that we needed it.
We did not got mad , we just took in the
perfume and when wo opened that bottle
tle , joe-whiz how sweet the perfume.
Wo remembered back in boyhood days
when wo worked the bung-hole of an
old molasses barrel with a long stick
after the sugar in the bottom , and we
thought nothing could bo as sweet. Wo
renombor ) later in life Avhon wo wore
tie ) big boy of the school and kissed the
school inarm behind the door for the
first time , and we thought ttien the
heavens had opened and were raining
molasses candy and ginger snaps ; but
this bottle of perfumery knocked out all
memories and real ! lies. Sola wonder
ment wo looked to the label and wo
found the solution of the problem. It
road , the "Bouquet Essence of Frances
Bonnet. " She must have been a daisy ,
and if a little of her boiled down was as
sweet as this , what would an entire lap-
full of her unboiled have been. Old ns
wo are nnd bald-hooded besides , wo
would have held her for a minute just
to rest thu other follow. It seams hard
to have to boll her , but if it was to bo
done , wo are glad ns good boys that the
Kirks got her. But wo advise every
body to send for a bottle before she is all
gone , and don't got fooled on the arti
cle. Buy Frances or nothing. Bond the
ardors to Bluff Old Aliolc or Honest
John. ( Milt , the old darling , is in
Europe hunting up some more girls to
boil. ) Wall or Charles are such giddy
things , it would bo just liknthom to run
in the juice of some other girl on you.
But if you got the real Frances and
don't ay she was the sweetest smelling
girl you over know , Bond the bill to us.

George Rudio came in Saturday ,
after a two week's trip. Ho reports his
maiden trip for Kirk's soap a success :
When ho started out , two weeks ago ,
George was rather timid. This state
ment may seem strange to the boys who
know him of old , but it's a fact , never
theless. Ho felt rather embarrassed ,
having boon off the road two long years ,
but courage rapidly exchanged places
with embarrassment , and at Lin
coln , his first stopping place ,
ho braced the first man ho mot to buy a
bill of soup in order to get his oily
tongue loose once more. Ono trial was
all that was necessary , however. Rudio
thinks Kearney a line place with many
improvements , but is down on the "boan
cater" who runs the Midway there , and
says if a traveling man expects a good
robin at the Midway it is necessary to
register from "Bosting" or he'll get a
sky-parlor , sure thing. George bribes
his friends now by promising" thorn a
nice box of Kirk's toilet
finest oaps , as
sorted with a string attachment. One
thing "Rudy" can't got over , is the
fact that the Midway has signs on it ,
" 173I5 miles to Boston" and " 17i3 ! miles
to San Francisco , " ho evidently thinks
there's no place like home and should
substitute a sign of his own construc
tion , but things have changed during
the two years George has boon off the
road.
