I70S.S0. This lives a net balance in the
principal sum of 383,148.01. The fact that
there is at present so large an excess In
tha Packers' National over tha othera Is
becauae the deposits In those two are per
manent, while the deposits In the Tack

Tarda National, $81.B1; Packers' National,
11,1110?. The total of Interest Is, there

history Of the city. ' The figures above
cover the Incumbency .: of - tha present offi

reach $460,000 before the. close of the year.
The reason for th increase will be the
heavy tax roll, which will be very rapidly
collected during the next two months.
Wo Frlctloa at Omaha Plant.
a B. Towle, superintendent of the new
Omaha plant, yesterday took occasion to
deny the report that there was any dis
agreement among the officials or the
stockholders of that company on account
of the large expense In remodelling tha
old Hammond plant. Such has been tha
report published. Mr. Towle said: "Every
thing has been going along smoothly, with
no interruptions nor objections.- We have
met with greater difficulties than we an
ticipated when we undertook the work of
repairing the plant Many of the floor
which we thought safe- were found to be
hopelessly impaired. The new government
Inspections made us an additional expense.
Tou may deny without .qualification any
opposition from the members of tha or
ganisation." . .
The plant la now naarlng completion.
The killing of hogs will begin In about a
week In all probability. The new offlce
building of five stories is almost under
cover. The loading sheds and other build
ings are well along,' The approach to the
O street viaduct Is practically done and
will be a great convenience. The entire
plant is taking on the appearance of fin-
ished order and tidiness.
Armour A Co, are rapidly raising the
walla of the lard and oleo departments
which were destroyed last summer. The

qulttal, for the sort of eccentricity of
which lie Is guilty Is such as to make him
and 1,1s County Fair strong In the hearts
of those people who are not so far gone
on '.he "art" und "technique." but like to
get close to nature and enjoy s few of the
old-fashioned realities of life. In this little
drama, as In few others, these people find
an evening of genuine and unbroken enjoy
ment. The County Fair, which has been be
fore the public for eighteen succesful sea
sons. Is an interesting little story of that
Hlmpie. pastoral life back In New England
the northern part of old Vermont, to be
precise. The grotesque simplicity of that
plain folk In Itself Is a mine of humor
and Burgess strikes pay dirt every time
he swings his pick. The man's makeup Is
perfect, his study of the part of a New
England old maid however she may differ
from other old maids brought him to a j
knowledge which oughtn't be questioned by
any one who Is not closer to the situation
than he is and they say he almost lives
the part. It Is a part that naturally would
grow on one. Burgess Insists he knows the
part and knows woman, as he remarks at
one point in the play. "I guess I know a
woman I've been one for such a long j
time." I
Tha audience laughs. Later In the play,
though, the audience laughs again and then
suddenly reflects upon the wisdom that
caused its mirth. J
"Otis Tucker, I'm a woman, I'd have you I
understand; and I want to say, sir, that
when I make up my mind that there ain't
no power on earth that can make me
change it."
Then Otls-h's her big fat, laxy suitor who
takes fourteen years to rake up courage
enough to put the question blunders up in
front of her and smiles and she falls all
ever him and herself, too, as she spurts out,
Otls. you kin do the cutest things."
. But, like most New England farms they
tell about In stories, the one Aunt Aboy hag
Is mortgaged. Imagine a stiff-necked old
Puritan, New England old maid, who had
waited for fourteen years for a man to pro
pose to her and twice that long to raise the
mortgage, at a county fair where her own
horse, ridden by a beneficiary of hers, with
out her knowledge, having handed to her at
one and the same time 13,000. first money at
the races, and a marriage license by Otla.
That's Aunt Abby's finish and she-recovers
the shock In fine shape.
Probably the two most striking features
of the play, so far as realism is concerned.
are the horse race and that, good, old
square dance in the barn at night.
Mr. Burgess has a very clever company
if "which -Wnrtley-frtcCutJurrM Wta: Tti

William F. O'Sulllvan win a great deal of
applause for themselves' and aid In bring'

The Children Enjoy
Life out of doora and out of the games which they play and the enjoyment
which, they receive and the efforts which they make, comes the greater part of that
healthful development which ia so essential to their happiness when grown. When
a laxative is seeded the remedy which is given to them to cleanse and sweeten and
strengthen the internal organs on which it acts, should be such as physicians woull
sanctioDi because its component ports are known to be wholesomj and the remedy
itself free from every objectionable quality. The one remedy which physicians and
parents, well-informed, approve and. recommend and which the little one enjoy,
because of its pleasant flavor, its gentle action and its beneficial effects, is-Syru?
of Figs and for the game reason it is the only laxative which should be used by
fathers and mothers.
Syrup of Figs is the only remedy which acts gently, pleasantly and naturally
without griping, irritating, or nauseating and which cleanses the system effectually,
without producing that constipated habit which results from the use of the old
time cathartics and modern imitations, and against which the children should be so
carefully guarded. If you would have them grow to manhood and womanhood,
strong, healthy and happy, do not give them medicines, when medicines are not
needed, and when nature needs assistance in the way of a laxative, give them only
the simple, pleasant and gentle Syrun of Figs.
Its quality is due not only to the excellence of the combination of the laxative
principles of plants with pleasant aromatic syrups and juices, but also to our
original method of manufacture and as you value the health of the little ones, do
not accept any of the substitutes which unscrupulous dealers sometimes offer to
increase their profits. Please to remember,' the fall name of the Company

suit the audience. George L. Cox Is tho
Telegraph's correspondent who starts the
war, and Leo Kendall Is a dandy Louis

his life." and refuses to do either.
Tha female portion of the cast cannot

Cane, whose name is on the list In caps.
She is tin Princess Lfelany. Ethel Dovey's

You know that most foods have one or more
of these elements, but do you know that no

The United States Government report shows
