Two) Generations from Primitive
Rarallty to Civilisation's
In 1831 th American people were free,
but they held In their hands the land tools
of slaves. They had to labor and sweat
In the fields, with the crude Implements
that had been produced by ages of alavery.
For two generations the sickles, flails and
wooden plows, with which they had tried
to build up a prosperous republic, had
held back agricultural progress. Let us
try to reconstruct mentally the America
of those days.
Enterprise was not then a aatlonal char
acteristic The few men who dared to
suggest Improvements were persecuted as
enemies of society. The first Iron plows
were said to poison the soil. The first
railroad was torn up. The first telegraph
wires were cut. The first sewing machln
was smashed. And the first man who aold
coal In Philadelphia was chased from the
state as a swindler.
Even the railway was a dangerous toy.
The telegraph waa still a dream In the
.brain of Morse. John Peere had not In
vented his steel plow, nor Howe his sew
ing machine, nor Ho his printing presa.
There were no stoves nor rastches nor '
lamps. Petroleum was peddled as a medi
cine at 11 a bottle. Iron waa 75 a ton.
Money waa about as reliable as mining
stocks ar today, and all th savings in
all th banks would not now buy the chick
ens In Iowa.
Th total exports amounted to no more
than w paid last year tor diamonds and

Ghost Ktory with Chills and Loss of
Nerve Claimed to Bo tho
Real Thing;.
That a whispered warning In the park by
the ghost of his dead wife saved him from
death by assasslnatloa is ths belief of
Charles Henry Durand, a farmef living In
the hills near Caldwell. N. J. His Strang
story is being used as clue by th au
thorities, uurana says tnsi isie Monaay.
night, as lie was driving home from Pater-
son, his horse began to tremble. In vain
he urged the animal to proceed. It would
not budge. '
Suddenly th air grew oppressive, and a
faight light like distant heat lightning ap
peared. Then gradually, amid the dim flashes
a while figure assumed vague form beside
the wagon. Durand himself commenced to
Quake. He tried to dismount, but his limbs
refused to obey his will. After as Interval
the apparition In white spoke in a whisper.
He recognised In fear and trembling the
voice of his deed wife.
"There is danger at home. Stay away
till morning." th vote said.
Cold chills crept over Durand. Scarcely
had the supernatural warning been tittered
when the ghost vanished. It took the
farmer, some time to recover his nerve, and
then he found the horse would not take a
atep forward. He took oft the harness and,
after twoHiours' work, brought the animal
out of its chill and slowly proceeded home.
Though badly scared, he did not put much
faith in the warning that had been whis
pered to him In such an uncanny way. So
long had Durand been delayed by his ad
venture that it was daylight when lie
reached his farm house, which has a lonely
Putting his horse In the stable, Durand
entered the dwelling. He noticed that a
window on the ground floor which he had
fastened waa unlatched. Next h discov
ered muddy footprints on the floor. As he
wss about to go into his room, upstairs,
he saw a string stretched across th open
doorway near the floor. It was Just high
enough to have caught his foot In entering.
Standing to one side Durand hooked his
umbrella handle over the string and gav
It a Jerk.
A flash Inside the room was accompanied
by a report and a bullet buried Itself In
the wall of the hallway opposite the door
way. Durand then ran Inside his room and
found that the bullet had crime from a pis
tol fastened to the top of his bureau. The
trigger had been connected with the string
across the door. The shot would have
struck him In the breast had he touched the
string with his foot on entering the room.
Dursnd, who moved from the west five
years ago, says some one. whose name he
will not divulge, had lain In wait for him
all night at hia home, and would have killed
him but for the warning he received from
his dead wife's spirit. New York World.

The diligence of the South Omaha police
force bids fair to depopulate the criminal
colored population of the city. Detective
P. H. Shields discovered Jess Walters
among the prisoners In the Omsha )sll
yesterday afternoon. He Is. wsnted In
South Omaha for burglary. Walter was
arrested Wednesday noon In Omaha for
taking $1.40 from a cripple. He e-ava bis
name as Henry Johnson In Omaha.
Shields went to In .search of this
man and happened to inquire at the Jail.
The description fitted , so well that
Shields took a look at the negro and a
man he had taken to Omaha to Identify
the negro. If found, had no difficulty In
recognising him on the spot. As soon as
the Identification was complete, Walters
confessed to robbing th pawn shop of
Dave Brown. 513 N street, early Christ
mas morning. He also set the building
kflre but he denied that he had Intended
to do it. He claimed it must have been
an accident from the matches he used.
Walters appeared very anxious to recelv
his sentence. He said: "I don't want no
long trial, and I won't make no trouble.
I want to git wha' Ps gwtn to aulck!"
This apparent eagerness made the officers
think that posaibly a far more serious
crime may be the urgent reason, and that
Walters wants to get Into the peniten
tiary, hoping to avoid further suspicion.
He will be kept until any such case may
be looked Into. Walters goes under the
nickname of "Red Bird." . .

When Reginald DeKoven wrote the
music for '"Happyland" he was in a rem
iniscent mood, at least, and his memory
waa, still good. He has performed a dis
tinct service for a lot of the older patrons
of the piece; for he not only give the
stags settings, songs and pictures of
"Happyland," but recall to our minds de
lights of bygone days, reaching back at
least to the time of Gilbert and Sullivan,
and mayhap bewond that. But these
wecpUootions are., really pleasant, and
heighten the enjoyment of th evening.
Also, Mr. DeKoven has good Judgment and
discriminating taste. Mr. Rankin's book
Is good, and Mr. Burnside has proved
himself an artist In his stage arrange
ment of the various aspect of the piece.
His pictures sre effective, hi dance are
graceful, and his marchea well managed.
"Happyland" Is as much a delight for the
eye as for th ear.
In King Ecstatlcus Mr. Hopper Is Just
what he ha alway been; In "Panjs.r.2i
rum," In "Wang," In "El Capltan." 4n
all hi list of undertakings, he depends
with absolute certainty on hi fantastic
leg movements and hi lugubrious utter
ance to make his fun, and he never falls.
He Is Just as funny now as he was the
first time you saw him, and likely will
be to the end of his career. In company
with King Altlmus (played by Mr. WoltO
he sings a duo about "Flowers" that
Is almost the limit for absurdity. HI
elephantine tenderness for hi daughter
Is another of the laughably ludicrous
featurea of the evening. Mr. Wolff, Mr.
Reed and Mr. Lawrence help amaxlngly
in developing the. drollery of "Happy
land." Mr. Poppen leada a hussar chorus
with a big hass voice and opens the sec
ond act with a song about a "Black
Sheep" that is good. Mr. Odell gets a
little opportunity to air his excellent
tenor, but Mr. Phillips has the real tenor
role and sings very well.
Miss Shsyne opens the first act wllh
a solo, "Hail, Gentle Eros," that is one
of the best things In the lot; the curtain
is raised on a stage that 1 totally dark,
and then, as the light Is slowly turned
on, simulating the breaking of day, Mlsa
Phayne has her chance, and It Is per
fectly taken. A chorus of girls follows
this, and a dance that Is well devised,
and the piece la under way. Mlsa Shayne
also has another fine opportunity In a
duo with Mr. Phillips.
Marguerite Clark Is given all the work
the most ambitious of soubrettes or prima
donnas might ask. She has a solo and
duet in the first act, a solo with chorus
in the second, and solo with the stage
all to herself. Each of these numbers
Is a hit. - One wonders where so much
voice can be atored in such a little body,
but it Is a sweet and musical voice with
range and power. Miss Clark dances
gracefully and flits Ilk 'a sprite In and
out of the action of the piece, leaving
no wonder as to why she Is popular.
And Ada Deaves is making fun Just as
she has tor well, Ada may not care, but
it wouldn't be nice to say how long. She
is the pioneer of the women who bide their
beauty behind grotesque applications ot
paint and under horrid wigs, just to make
fun. And she is still the leader of the lot,
too. Her clever wsy, admitted long ago,
haa not forsaken her. The chorus, both
male and female, ia numerous, comely and
qualified to sing. The hits are too numer
ous to mention, and the laughspout Is
turned on full and at high preaaure most
of the time. Mr. Hopper obliged last night
with a curtain speech that Is brand new
so far as Omaha goes, and thereby won
more applause. The audience was large
nd gave ample evidence of ita enjoyment.
"The Way of the Tranagrraaor" at tho
This fine melodrama came back to the
Krug last night, to the delight of a large
audience. It is written around a series of
episodes that combine to make a tale ef
deep lntereat, and which develop some
very strong situation On of them has
to do with an attempt to wreck a train.
