Favors New Court House.,
Editor Tribune:
I see by a recent issue of The Tri
bune that the county commissioners
will build a vault for storing the records
of the county treasurer. On the theory
that every little bit helps, this may
prove a make-shift, but why not build
a now court house commensurate with
the needs and wealth of Lincoln county?
I have transacted business in many
counties in Nebraska and in counties in
other states, yet I havo never seen
such an inadequate court house in so
popular and wealthy county as we have
in Lincoln county. No ono will deny
that our records are poorly protected,
that in case of fire the ensuing loss
would bo several times the cost of a
new court house.
Divided among the several thousand
tax payers of the county, the cost to
each ono would be small; and this
is particularly true when you consider
that the railroads, other corporations
nnd non-residents pay at least one-third
of all taxes assessed against Lincoln
county property.
As one of tho heavy tax payers in
the county, I certainly would be glad
to pay my proportion of the taxes nec
essary to bo raised for a new court
house, and I believe that all other pro
gressive residents would fall in line. It
seems to me that this new court house
proposition should be taken up by the
people of Lincoln county.

'Busy Izzy" Well Named.
The Denver Post of last Monday
gave the following notice of "Busy
Izzy," which comes to the Keith on

"Busy Izzy," at the Tnbor this week

Not only is everybody in this bit of
"musical foolery" as the program
characterizes the offering kept on tho
move from the time tho curtain goes
up until it drops for the last time, but
every ono in the audience partakes of
the business and hnds it a running
game to keep up with all the things
that are going on.
A combination of burlesque show and
vaudeville stunts is what it sums up.
The hitsof the show are several strik
ing song features, and the "Turkey
Trot" dance by Nick Uasil as Yubl Quick,
the bell hop, and Carrie Webber, as Ro
setta, to the tune of Alexander's Rag
Time Band.
S tizzy Mark, the Hebrew character, as
played by George Sidney, is kept well
and humorously within the lines of re
alism and true humor. Basil the head
dancer of the company, and Dick
Hume, as Whifiington Waff, are win
ning laughs at their very appearance
on the stage, and John J. Mugec, as
Gee Whiz, a country bumpkin, is&de
cidedly good.
Izzy's business is largely caused by
the fact that he is engaged in simul
taneously owning and conducting a hotel
and department store. These two estab
lishment are the scene of the many
funny situation with which the show

A compnny playing "llnmlet" was
forced to Hud an actor to play the sec

When the first gravedlgger threw off
the waistcoat, revealing another un
derneath, the audience tittered. The
removal of the second waistcoat
brought u loud laugh, and tho third
produced n roar. The first gravedlgger
was delighted lie had never played

teas that are best to brew or drink.

its suitability for brewing in the water of a particular
district. Tea that would be good here, and brew
into a splendid beverage, might be a rank failure
somewhere else.
We buy our teas to suit the water of this district. You ore there
