DR. B. P. BAILEY'S SANATORIUM.
This Sanatorium has been open but one month, yet it rapidly is increasing in
popularity, and its fame has already reached beyond the boundaries of our own
state. It is conveniently located one block from the car line, on the site of
the Lincoln Normal, Bnd is thoroughly equipped for the successful treat
ment of disease. Not a hotel, not a hospital but a home. For information ad

Samuel Morris is the name of the
"rake" now appearing in "Under Two
Flags' in Chicago. He has been a mem
ber of the profession for twenty years,
and for eight years has been stage
director in Hopkins' Theatre.
In days gone by Morris starred in the,
west in "Sam'l of Posen" and "Old
Money Bags." During this period he
married Maggie Miller, whose home was
in California, and together they lived
happily in Chicago for several years.
During an illness Mrs. Morris became a
victim of the opium habit, and a sepa
ration of the couple ensued. The wo
man went back to her former home in
California, but could not forget her love
for her husband, and wrote to him daily.
He answered her letters and supplied
her with money. Finally the desire to
see the object of her affection became too
strong to be resisted, and she bought a
ticket for Chicago, registering at the
Saratoga hotel. She sent for her hus
band, who was delayed at the theatre
and was late in responding to the sum
mons. He promised to come the next
night, but was again detained beyond
the appointed hour. She then decided
to end her life, and to that end swal
lowed a pint of wood alcohol. A mo
ment later her husband arrived, and her
desire for life returned; but medical
skill was exerted in vain. With the
knowledge that Bhe could not live until
his return, Sam Morris was compelled to
go through his hour of mimicry at the
theatre, where he was viewed across the
foot-lights as the drollest man in town at
the very moment that the physician was
sending through the telephone the
message that Mrs. Morris had ceased to
struggle for life. With a round of
applause in his ears Morris stalked off
from the stage, and sinking into a chair
back of the ecenes. burst into tears.
Molloy, in his song "Punchinello," de
picts a similar tragedy:
"He wis a. Punchinello,
Sweet Columbine was she ;
He loved the ground she danced on,
She laughed his love to see,
Till he laughed himself as gaily,
Dancing, joking every night :
"He's the maddest, merriest fellow 1 "
Cried the people with delight.
Bright was the day she married,
And there, among the rest,
Came poor old Punchinello,
He was the blithest guest.
Had they seen his tears at midnight
In his garret near the sky,
"He's the maddest, quaintest fellow,"
That would still have been their cry.
One winter morn they told him
Sweet Columbine was dead ;
He never joked so gaily
As that night, the people said ;
Never sang and laughed so madly, -Ah,
for his heart that night 1
'He's the wildest, brightest fellow,"
Cried the people with delight.
But when the play was over.
Forth to her grave he crept ;
Laid one white rose upon it,
Then sat him down, and wept.
But the people, had they seen him
Gaze to the moonlit sky,
"He's the. maddest, merriest fellow,"
Still you would have heard them cry."
Royal Highlander Field Day.
The Royal Highlanders of Lincoln
have selected the Union Pacific as the
official route to the "field day" at Beat
rice on the 29th of August. A special
train will be furnished, leaving Lincoln
at 8 A. M. The three castle teams and
the accompanying bands will go by this
train as well as the Highlanders and
their friends. The rate will be eighty
cents for the round trip. Beatrice is
sparing no expense to royally entertain
the Highlanders of the state at the
beautiful Chautauqua grounds. An
elaborate program has been prepared
including all the usual "field day" at
tractions. The monster Highlander pa
race will be worth going miles to see.
Lincoln wants to Bend one thousand vis
itors to Beatrice and the special rate of
eighsy cents should help to do it.
The editor of the Clare Sentinel tells
his troubles: Every editor has received
them. The postmaster is not to blame.
For instance, there was a man by the
name of well, say Tim Short, who sent
ub three notices to stop hiB paper; he
didn't want his paper any longer. We
wondered what waB the matter, Inves
tigating the subscription book we found
that Tim was short 810. He never had
pUid a cent, yet he stopped his paper as
a matter of economy to us. He didn't
want us to lose any more by him. A
few dayB afterward Tim was at church
and his melodious voice rang out loud
and clear in that old soul-stirring song,
"Jesus Paid It AH." We may have
been mistaken, but his earnestness im
pressed us. So the next day we sent
him a receipt in full, begging his pardon
for not knowing, that he had made an
assignment of his liabilities to the Lord.
On account of the very low rates made
to Colorado points
THE UNION PACIFIC
has placed in service another through
Pullman Sleeper on train No. 3, for Den
ver, leaving Omaha at 4:25 P. M. daily,
and continuing until September 10th.
This service affords passengers the
very best accommodations with the
greatest possible comfort
Reservations should be made as far in
advance as possible.

to argue against a wo

waste of time consequently we
never try. We sell every good
sort of typewriter in its best

unbiased advice, however, if you

A NOTED ENGLISH TRAVELER SAYS:
"It moves along- like some majestic poem in a series of
incompaiable stanzas. There is nothing- like it in the Hi
malayas that I know of. nor in the Suliman Range. In
the Bolan Pass, on the Afghan frontier, there are inter
vals of equal sublimity; and even as a whole it may com
pare with it. But taken for all in all its length (some
thirty miles), its astonishing diversity of contour, it beau
ty, as well as its grandeur I confess that Echo Canon is
one of the masterpieces of nature."
Whose work with Miss Rivett is favorably known, will
continue to do Manicuring, Shampooing, Hairdressing,
and will give treatment of scalp diseases. Switches
and pompadours made to order and all kinds of hair
work carefully done.
