Close of Poultry Show.
Bverythlng went smoothly at the poultry
show yesterday afternoon and evening.
There was a fair crowd In the building all
tho time. The crowds did not stay long
at any time, but passed in and out regu
larly. The prizes were all determined late
In the evening and the ribbons were all
distributed. Every local fancier had a
prise of some sort, and Indeed the Ne
braska fowls proved to be as good as those
from New York. Some of the prize winners
sold aa high as in. John Burth of Maynard
sold five of his birds at good figures. John
Frltx Roberts waa offered $10 for his first
prlac pulled In the Buff Wynndotte class.
Ho entered only two birds In the competi
tion. F. A. Agnew's fowls won him a
good number of prizes, as did those of If.
B. Fleherty. A full list of the prize win
ners will be available today, and It Is
expected that the exhibit will break up this
evening. Fnanclally the venture has
proved a great success, considering that
this Is the first exhibition In South Omaha.
The management haa enough on hand to
pay all expenses and leave a small margin
In the treasury. All the visitors In tho
course of the three days have appeared to
be well pleased with the display.
. Biggest Tax Payment.
The largest check for taxes which haa
ever been received In South Omaha was
turned Into the treasury yesterday, when
tho Vnlon Stock Tards company sent In
Its remittance for $.13,061.49. Their check
was made out for $33,074.49, but the city
returned $10 which was overpaid. With
this check all the large amounts have been
paid up, and the city has Its finances all
to the good. Of course, there will be a
number of delinquents, and some of them
will be In places which would surprise tho
publlo if they knew. All day yesterday
the treasurer was busy with collections,
and after the time for the public schools
to close their dally session several teachers
paid their ' personal taxes.

The office of County Clerk Haveily was
the scene of about the only bustle caused
by the transfer of the county offices mads
Thursday morning. Mr. Haverly'a force
was up agnlnat the pension certificate busi
ness strong. There are about 300 pension
ers who get their certificates made out In
Omaha, and a large proportion of these
always is to the fore about the first of
the month. Mr. Haverly'a new clerks had
ho advantage of the assistance of Deputy
Frank Dewey, who knows all about the
workings of the office, so everything went ;
loni; nbotit 11s tlcual. Mr. Havcrly him
self also has had a lot of experience, hav
ing hald lb" office before.
Former Clerk Drexel was on hand to
render any assistance In his power, and
Miss Eva Ma honey, record clerk, also
was present, to make her successor. Miss
Berger, acquainted with the routine of her
County Engineer Edqulst and his suc
cessor. Herman Beal, of South Omaha,
had settled their transfer Wednesday after
noon, ao Mr. Beal settled In his chair as
naturally aa if he had been there for
months. He will retain the present force
to start with and may not make any
change at all, because good draughtsmen
are not a plentiful commodity Just now.
Later on he. will have the appointment of
In the Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff McDonald's chief deputy, Asel
fiteere. Jr.. took hold of the office promptly
at the appointed hour. Being an attorney,
he Is already well posted on the legal end
of his duties, but an Immense amount of
detail Is to be mastered. Deputies Harte
and Butler were also on hand and settled
down to await for what might turn up
like old experienced hands. 1 he retiring
sheriff. John Power, gave to bis successor,
John W. McDonald, a welcome in Gaelic.
McDonald, while a Oael by descent, does
not speak the old tongue with fluency, hut
he managed to let Power know that every
thing was all right, to far as he was con
cerned. Power's deputies, headed by
"Billy" Cunningham, the chief, acted like
a lot' of boys let out of school. Captain
Henry Haze. Just resigned from the police
department, was present to extend con
gratulations to the new sheriff.
Sheriff Power will rest for a brief spell
before taking up the active management
of various business enterprises In which he
Holes In a Skimmer.
Harry Deuel told his successor. Fronk
Bandle. a revised version of the old yarn
about the holes In a skimmer. Mr. Bandle
replied that he knows not only there are
holes In a skimmer, but also In a solll
base ball diamond, at times.
"Me a catcher," said Mr. Bandle, "and I
should be able to catch on here without
much trouble. Of course, Harry, If they
shoot 'em In too swift I may call on you
for relief, but with Pat Tobln as backstop
for me we will worry along' all right."
Then Mr. Deuel gathered up all his money
and hla bank book and smilingly went away
to ponder on the changes of life and the
possibility of the supreme court taking cog
nizance later of the fact that he Is still on
earth and as optimistic as he ever was.
Emmet G. Solomon's chair as deputy
county auditor Waa vacant and will remain
so until after the new Board of County
Commissioners organizes January 9. An
appointment to the vacancy la not expected
much before February 1.
Over at the county Jail ''J!m" Roach
turned over to the new Jailer, George B.
Stryker, his keys, likewise the requisite
number of prisoners to enable Mr. Stryker
to begin housekeeping In a dignified man
ner, introductions to the star boarders
were hardly necessary, as Stryker has been
on the police force long enough to become
fairly well acquainted with the accomplish
ments of hla new charges.

Every part of the body Is dependent on the blood for nourishment and
Strength, and when from any cause this vital stream of life becomes impov
erished or run-down, it invites disease to enter. No one can be well when th
blood is impure; they lack the energy that is natural with health, the com
plexion becomes pale and sallow, the vital energies are at a low ebb, and they
guffer from a treneral broken-down condition of health. The system is weak
ened and unable to resist the diseases
inf it. The Liver and Kidneys, failing to receive the proper cumulation anil
nourishment from the blood, grow inactive and dull, and the waste matterg

only thorough, but gentle in Its action, b. i. is., a purely vegetable remedy,
