Neither of 'in remembers anything of

we went to lowa, 1 and my wife, and Mr.
Stump and we've sort of been keeping to
guttiex ever since, though he travels about
a good deal '"
Mra. Gideon, though suffering for years
from very defective sight, is still able

Old American Family.
Mr. Btump has never married. He has
in his time accumulated quite a compe
tence, and still retains a sufficient amount
of the world goods to live comfortable,
through loans and otherwise, the borrower
being either unable or unwilling to pay.
In neither event has he ever brought an
action at law to recover. He has traveled
extensively over his own country and still
does so, being mentally and physically able
to take good care of himself. He recalls '
many a trip he formerly took, and his mind

The Oldeons are an old American family.
His father was an Ohloan, but his grand
mother lived In Virginia, where his father
was reared. He vividly remembers how his
grandfather came out to Ohio on several
occasions to visit them. The latter was
a soldier In the revolutionary war and
died at the age of 1C years. Mr. Oldeon'a
recollection of the place whore his grand
father lived Is that it was near Hillsboro,

five brothers and a slater, all of whom are
still living and have large families. At a

There seems to be some prospect now
of the Vnlon Pacific building a viaduct
across the tracks from V to T street.
For several months Councilman W. P.
hern working on the proposi-
tlon and a few days ago a Committee com.
posed rf Mayor Koutsky, President Ad
kins and a couple of members of the
council called upon the offlclala of the
Vnlon Pacific and the matter was talked
over at some length. . Oeneral Manager
Mohler gave the committee considerable
encotiragement and stated that he would
have the matter Investigated. Saturday R.
H. Huntley, one of the leading- bridge en
gineers In the employ of the Vnlon Pacific,
spent some tlrue In looking over the ground.
At first Mr. Huntley declared that there
was no necessity for a viaduct at the
location named, but when shown a little
changed his mind to some extent.
In case a viaduct Is built It will be about
l,2u0 feet In length and he a steel structure
similar to the O street viaduct. Mr. Hunt
ley made quite a thorough Investigation
and will later on make a report to General
As the Vnlon Pacific tracks are fenced
from the L street viaduct to the southern
limits of the city with only one opening,
and that at Jefferson street, those deslrlD;
to get to the southern or southwest sec
tion of the city must take a roundabout
course. The southern portion of the elty
Is building up quite rapidly and workmen
must make quite a detour to get to their
homes. It Is the same with delivery
wagona. Business men In the central part
of the city are very anxious to see this
viaduct built and are urging the mayor and
council to do everything possible to hurry
Bora Arrested for Bobbins; Cara.
Six lads ranging from 12 to 14 years of
age are being detained at police headquar
ters. These youngsters all live In Coon Hol
low near the cooperage works and they ad
mit having been stealing from cars for
some time Only a few nights ago some
brass Journals were stolen from a Burling
ton tool house and the police located a
portion of the brass In plowed ground. At
police headquarters the lads were not
booked, but were turned over to Probation
Officer Bernstein. Two or three of the
boys confessed and Implicated a couple
One youngster r-ild that this gang, which
is headed by a young fellow named Young,
had been stealing fruit and other articles
from cars In the Burlington yards at Thir
ty-seventh and L streets for about a year.
The gang Is a tough one, all the members
using oaths when talking that would make
a mate on a steamboat hang his head in
shame. Duitng the sweatbox period one of
the lads with- an unpronounceable name
commenced to sniffle and the leader re
marked In disgust, "Aw, stand up like a
man and take your compound."
Last night Probation Officer Bernstein
took the six lads to the detention home on
South Tenth street, Omaha, where they will
be detained for a time.
With the breaking up of this boys' gang
the police now think that they have made
some headway toward the suppression of
petty thieving In the railroad yards.
People Well Pleased.
South Omaha people were greatly pleased
to read in The Bee of Saturday morning
that the Union Pacific railroad had pur
chased ground for a passenger depot. Busi
ness men on,' N street were delighted and
announced that the building of a passenger
station between M- and N streets would
be the saving of N street from early decay.
The ground purchased is between the
streets mentioned and the building of a
depot on this property will be of greater
benefit to N street than to M. aa the latter
street Is not paved.
It seems to be understood that the pro
posed depot will be a fine two-story brick
structure trimmed with stone. When the
(lassenger depot la built the expectation
Is that a freight depot south of N street
will be constructed. j

William Polan was tried In police court
Saturday on the charge of shooting with
Intent to kill. The complaint was flledby
Mrs. Polan. but she did not prea the pros
ecution, and Dolan was permitted to plead
guilty to assault and was sentenced to
serve twenty days In the county Jail. One
evening last week Dolan went home In an
Intoxicated condition and fired two shots
at his wife, but without effect. After being
arrested he had delirium tremens .end
attempted to commit suicide. The police

Workmen Carnival Closes.
The carnival given by the Carnival club
of the Ancient Order of Vnlted
Workmen closed last night. While
the attendance during the week was not
as large an expected, the carnival club
will not come out behind, but will not
have as much money on the good side of
the ledger as expected. Friday night the
attendance fell off considerably, but last
night there was a fair crowd. There I al
ready some talk of having another show
later In the season.
Will Remain Closed Fvenlngs.
A report was current on the streets Fri
day evening that the local merchants were
preparing to make some rhenges In the
early evening closing and keep open later
several evenings during the week.
A number of the leading merchants de
clared that there was nothing In the ru
mor. Said one merchant: "Anyone who
wants to keep his store open during this
hot weather must certainly hold a spite
against himself." As for the Retail Clerks'
association making a protest against the
stores remaining open, -It might be well
to state that this association faded away
a number of months ago. In the language
of one of the former members of the
clerks' association, "the association is
busted, and has been for some time."

THURSTON HERE FOR A VISIT
Former l'nlted Ma tee Senator amd
Wife Make short Stop la
'. Oniab.au ": '
John M. TJiurston, accompanied by Mrs.
Thurston, Is at the Her Grand. wherg
they will probnbly be for four or five days.
They are enroute east from Portland, where
Mr. Thurston hns been for the last three
months engaged In the defense of Senator
Mitchell, charged with being Implicated In f
government land frauds. Mr. Thurston was
looking fine and In good spirits last even
ing at the Omaha club, where he and Mrs.
Thurston dined. He said:
"It Is not nice for a lnwyer to talk about
his cases, so I will say nothing about Sen
ator Mitchell's case, except that we hava
appealed to the supreme court of the
l'nlted 8tates and that body will render
the final decision. For the last three
months I have not enjoyed a meal as I
did this one at the Omaha club. We have
been In a busy section of the country, and
the whole northwest Is filled with tourists
and prospective settlers. Never was such
travel known to the northwest. This Is
brought about to some extent by the Port
land exposition, which Is a little beauty.
No 'prettier spot could be Imagined on
which to hold an exposition than that se
lected at Portland. The attendance has
been enormous for the first three months
and Is almost certain that It Iwil equal
the Omaha exposition and pay out for the '
"I was more than pleased to read In The
Bee of the wonderful strides that Omaha
Is making In the building line. The figures
were a great surprise to me. But then
Omaha always did have a future before
It, and It looks like the time had coma
for It to forge to the front and take
Its proper place among the leading
cities of the country. The state was beau
tiful, as we came through, and shows on
Ita face that It will have the bumper crop
this year that the railroads and the agri
culturists claim for It. We are anxious
to get back to Washington, as our little
5-year-old la there alone."
BREAKS A NATIONAL RECORD
gale of Nebraska Shirt Company nt
Hrandels' Eatabllahea Mark In
Men's Fnrnlahlnar Wood a.
The ojd theory that women are the only
bargain enthusiasts received a setback
Saturday when Omaha men by thousands
crowded the aisles at J. L. Brandels fk
Sons to share the benefits of the sale of
the Nebraska Shirt company stork.
From k o'clock In the morning until late
In the evening the store was thronged with
men who adequately represent Omaha's
business and professional coterie. Scores
of prominent physicians and bankers bent
over the bargain squares and a roll call
cf the Omaha bar would not have found a
great number of absentees. Together with
the men were hundreds of women buyers,
acting aa purchasing proxies for busy hus
bands and sons. ' It was not only the larg
est and most successful sale of lta kind
ever held In Omaha, but the proprietors
declare that never before In the history
of the country has there been a sale of
men's furnishings that demanded ao much
space and netted ao much In groaa sales
as this one.
