Two documents presented to the Omaha
Public, library by General Manderiou add
ome Interesting material to the collection
of historical souvenirs which is gradually

was prenrnted to the library board at its

OMAHA. Jan. ?8, IStS.-To the Librarian
Df the Omaha I'ubllo library: I send to
you an lnt rtatlng paper to add to the
CulKt'ttim In the Hyron Kei H room. It is
the Invitation to Mrs. Mun.l.r. m and my
self to trre wedilliiK of William McKlnli-y
to Ida S.ixton at I'anton, O. The addr.-ss
H on the rnvr!oe la In the handwriting

P. B 1 alxo acud an invliatlnn tn the
trip from Omaha west to Grand Duke
Alexia of Itjr.lu.
Tb invKaiKn r(errd to i enclosed la
a peculiarly constructed envelope bearing
the embossed monogram of the contracting
parties. As General Maadcrson points
out, the address on the outside should be
readily reccgntzed as the handwriting of
the late President McKlnley by anyone
who Is familiar with bis well known s'gna
ture. The marriage of William McKinley,
Jr., and Miss Ida Saxton took place in 1871,
but the year Is nowhere noted upon the
invitation, which. In its peculiar wording,
Mr. and Mrs. James A. Saxton
will be pleased to have you present
at the marriage of their daughter
' William McKlnley, Jr.,
Wednesday evening, Jan. 1X. at "Vi o'clock.
First Presbyterian churrh.
Reception from 8 till o'clock. Canton, Ohio.
Hello of Koyalty.
The other memento Is a more gaudy
cardboard folder, printed In red, blue and
gold, and enclosed in an envelope bearing
on the outside over the scutcheon of the
road the inscription "Time card for special
train, Union Pacific railroad, from Omaha
to McPherson, Friday, January 12. 1872."
eki the first page of the folder the 'words
read, "Complimentary to HIb Imperial
Highness, the Grand Duke Alexia of Rus
sia, and Suite. Vnlon Pacific Railroad
Company, Omaha, January 12, 1872. Thomas
A. Scott, president; John Duff, vice presi
dent." On the second page the announce
ment appears "Special traiu of the Union
Pacific Railroad conveying Grand' Duke
Alexis of Russia and Suite will ,leave
Omaha, 3 p. m.. Friday, January 12. 1872.
This train will have the right of road over
all other trains. T. E. Sickles, chief en
gineer and general superintendent." The
wording of the third page is as follows:
"His Itnperial Highness and party will
lt-ave McPherson atation. Union Pacific
railroad, Saturday morning, January 13,
1872, for a Grand Buffalo Hunt under di
rection of Lieutenant General P. H. Sheri
dan, IT. S. Army." Under this Inscription
Is a beautiful picture in gold portraying a
wild buffalo chase In fullest excitement,
with two or three mounted huntsmen scat
tering a herd of several thousand buffalo,
in a fashion up to the dime novel standard.
On the last side of the folder is the special
time card for the ducal excursiou, giving
Omaha aa the starting point at 3 p. m , and
the names aud distances as well as the
time of arrival at the thirty points of stop
page to the destination. McPherson which Is
down as 277.5 miles from Omaha, was to
be reachrd at 2 a. m. the next morning auJ
the fact that nothing Is said about the re
turn leaves the Inference that the, buffalo
hunt was to last as long as the pleaxare of
his Imperial highness was promoted.
It Is tho purpose of the Authorities of
the public library to have the documents
presented by General Manderson properly
preserved and kept available for Inspection
of all who have any reason to look at

Mamma asked Nellie what she bad
learned in Sunday school, and she replied:
"That I must sell throe tickets for the
concert next week, give 20 cents for the
superintendent's present and that Noah
buili the ark."
Mother (to her 7-year-old son William,
who has been growing free of speech)
Hilly, dear, I will give you 10 cents a day
for every day you don't say "darn fool."

air) Humph: If "darn fool" Is worth 10
cents, I guess I know words that are worth
Mamma Johnny, did you wipe your feet
on the mat when you caino in?
Johnny I couldn't get my shoestrings
untied; they were in a hard knot.
Mamma But what have shoestrings to
do with It?
Johnny I couldn't wipe my feet without
taking off my times, could I?
