Brewster's ' Millions," Wincholl Smith's and Bryon Ongloy's stage ver sion of Grorgo Carr McCutchcon's fam ous book, will bo tho attraction at tho Keith next Friday evening. Tho play will bo seen hero with Louis Kimball and practically tho original New York cast and production that ran upwards of a year in New York and during the summer months in Chicago. The story or isrewstor b Millions is odd and unique, and delightfully blended with romance. If you sud denly inherited a million dollars, under conditions that you were to spend it within a year and keep that condition secret, ana that nt the end of tho year were not to have one possession to your credit that you had purchased during that period, do you think you could do it? It is a harder proposition than one would imagine. Think It over that is what Monty Brewster did with "Brewster's Millions." Would Hasten the Purchase. City Attornoy Hnlligan, by direction of the city council, is endeavoring to secure from the waterworks company a stipulation whereby tho city may purchase tho water plant without, wait ing jjftr. tho final decree which will be rendered In ' tho 'fpuVral court in this city next June. Should tho company agrco to such stipulation, tho council will ut its noxt meeting pnss a resolu tion referring to tho electors of the city tho question of using tho bonds which lmvo boon voted for tho pur chase of tho plant. Without such ref erendum tho bonds could not be used, as they were voted for tho spocillc pur pose of building and. maintaining a new plant. New Street Light. Tho electric light company has ercc ted In front of Its office a iron post surmounted by five electric liKhtB which give out a Very satisfactory radiation and In addition nro very or namental. In Fremont, Fairbury and several other towns In tho atato this system of lighting the streets is in vogue and Is proving highly satisfac tory. It has boon suggested that the system bo used here, and that four of the posts bo used at ench streot fntersection on Dewey and also one post in tho center of the block. - As an inducement to tho city to uso this method of lighting it has tieen sugges ted that tho business nion buy tho posts and tho city pay for tho under ground conduits, the globes and tho cost of maintaining. These posts cost about $35.00 each, and as thoro would bo six posts to tho block, three on each sido of tho street, tho cost would bo about $10 to each 22-foot store front. this matter is wortn considering, as it would result in much better lighted streets. E. W. Crane. v:s. Chicago and Kansas City, To whom it may concern; For some timo past it has been my opinion, that groceries could bo, sold hero in North PJatia.au.cUoa) 'as Soars Roebuck & Co., or Montgomery & Ward could soli them by dispensing with tho ex penses that tho retail grocers necos snrlly havo to pay. Being convinced of this fact, 1 Bet out to find a wholesale house who could back mo in tho under taking, and nt tho fsamo timo furnish good riucsn wholsomk doODS in se lecting goods that had tho . quality to them, I did so with an eyo single to tho fact, that a mnn should "oat to live" inatend of "living to eat."

Thoro is no Joko In tho information coming from tho west that thirty seven specimens of tho now alfalfa post woro found in ono comportment of a Pullman sleeping cor. The crop has been nil but destroyed In Utah and will naturally spread with lightning like rapidity If it is to bo carried every where by the railroads. It may bo necessary to put overy car from tho west under the vacuum cleaner treat ment as It crosses tho state lino to keep tho blight out of Nebraska. The matter la of enough importance to do mnnd tho attention of tho Btnto au thorities at onco. A specin) session of tho legislature would not bo much of n prico to pay for keeping back this threat against our newly found alfalfa wsath. It is Haid that a good way to clear tho fields of tho laryao ia to uso the vacuum cleaner, but of course no euro will bo effective until the natural enemies of the bcotlo aro brought in from tho Mediterranean, whero tho pest seems to havo its origin.
