will be seen by reference to the official

plans for a wbarfboat and for a ware
house. The former, according to the
estimate of Kablke Bros., would cost
in the neighborhood of $ 1,000, while
the latter, in the opinion of the de
signing architect, Georce P. Staudu
har. could be constructed under
$2,000. The council as a whole
seemed to prefer the land house idea
to the floating; dock. The di

be quickly and easily handled. The

the Indian clubs Miss Thomas is an
adept. Every movement was made
with svlphlike grace. Lime L-icona
Sandstrom proved to be everybody 'i
favorite. She was compelled to re

of the "Revenge of the Maine,
