W. Armour ' Thompson of Thermopoll
while In Omaha Friday waxed warm over
the future of his coming city.
"One of the greatest surprises In store
for the people who go to Wyoming for the
drawing of the Shoshone lands," said Mr.
Thompson, "will be the sight of tho fa
mous hot springs of Thermopolls. The
history of these springs Is romantic. The
government gained control of them through
negotiations with the Shoshone Indians
by treaty with their great chief. Washakie.
Although an unschooled Indian, this prod
uct of the mountains was wise enough to
Insist upon the Insertion of a clause In
the contract that a portion of the waters
of these hot springs should be forever free
for public ue. The government bought

soon as the Burlington railroad extends It
line from Worland south to Thermopolls. a
distance of thlrty-flve miles, the railroads
and capitalists are sure to take up these
springs and make the place one of the
most famous In the world. Th big spring
bolls out of the bowels of the earth nt the
base of a flat-topped hill which rises 250
foet above. It runs through channels
which its own waters have cut to tumble
over picturesque falls Into the Big Horn

a meeting Thursday night at the reidenre
of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Wsgner. S52

men, snd they were much In evidence at

for the general accommodation of the pub
lic, but for the children attending the
Franklin school as well. The matter of

and Thirty-eighth In proper shape for the
summer with new swings and other attrac
tions for the children was discussed, and
the suggested Improvements ordered made
at the expense of the city by the play
street Railway Extension.
The street railway committee reported
that It had received a tip. from the street
railway company that the Ames avenue
line Is to be extended to Fontanelle park,
thence around by the Institute for the
Deaf and Dumb, and thence connect with
the Walnut Hill line, and that this work
Is likely to be done this summer.
The committee on prise awards for th
best kept lawns, recommended that owing
to the lateness of the season In getting the
lawns In proper shape that the money at
one time appropriated for prlxes for the
best kept lawns be not so appropriated
this season, but that It be devoted to the
beautlflcatlon and further equipment . of
the playgrounds. The recommendation of
the committee was adopted.
The committee appointed to confer with
Mayor Dahlman relative to the recom
mendation of the club for the appointment

G. W. Hervey, a member of the club, and
also a member of theDouglas County Agri
cultural society, submitted a verbal report
relative to the co-operation of the work of
the City Improvement league with that of
the Agricultural society and believed that
It would prove mutually advantageous. He
stated that at a recent meeting of the
Agricultural society the city of Omaha
had been made a precinct of the Agricul
tural society for county fair purposes, and
advised that the city and the various Im
provement clubs participate In the contest
for premiums. He believed that each of the
clubs could secure one or more of the
premiums offered. He made the further
interesting statement that 75 per cent of
the vine products seeds sold In the United
States are produced In Douglas county, In
the vicinity of Waterloo and Valley, -e He
urged that Omaha precinct make an earnest
effort "t be represented by special booths
at the county fair to be held In connection
with the Ak-8ar-Ben carnival this fall.
Social Hour Is Pleasant.

been finished, the gathering was then
turned over to Mrs. Wagner and an Inter
