OLD BUILDINGS ARE TORN DOWN New Structure to be 40 Feet Square and Will Have a Capacity for 40,000 Bushels. The Doud Milling company is mak ing arrangements for the erection of a large elevator with the beginning of spring, and on Friday of last week was in consultation with Mr. G. H. Birchard, of Lincoln, Neb., an archi tect of wide reputation, regarding the plans. Mr. Birchard was in Denison and thoroughly investigated the grounds, etc., and will at once begin work on the plans and specifications. The new elevator will be erected just south of the mill proper, where the present old elevator stands. The building will be 40 feet square, with a capacity of 40,000 bushels of grain. It will be modern throughout, and the estimated cost is $6,000.00. The Doud people have been greatly handicapped from the fact that the present quarters were insufficient in storage capacity and the increasing business demands larger and more up to-date quarters. Under the efficient management of Mr. H. L. Fitch the busines is stead ily growing, and farmers are very lib erally patronizing the concern. The price paid for grain is said to be from 10 to 12 cents higher than is paid in other parts of the county, and grain is being hauled from considerable dis tance to- Denison. Fifty bushels of •wheat to the load means $5.00 extra to the farmer, and this is worth while. Mr. Fitch informs the Review that the milling business is rapidly reach ing out, and their flour is meeting with the approval of many families over the county who have heretofore used foreign-made flour. This fact alone encourages the company to greater efforts, and is an inducement for further improvements in the mill 5 WEIGHS OUR chas curator' ing property. The Doud Milling com pany is in Denison to stay, and mean business and should have the support and encouragement of the community. The Review is glad to note this latest proposed improvement to Denison's business interests and trusts that more will follow. DEATH OF MISS KATE SWEENEY. A Faithful School Teacher and Worthy Lady Dies at Home of Sister in Artesian, S. D. On last Sunday morning the sad news reached Denison friends of the death of Miss Kate Sweeney, who for many years was one of the faithful school teachers of this county. She died at the home of her sister, Mrs. Wealoga, at Artesian, S. D., where she went last spring in hopes of bene fiting her health, thus prolonging her life in spite of the disease of con sumption, which she has been bravely fighting for over Mur years. Miss Sweeney was a young woman of most beautiful character, her sweet smile and pleasing manner of speech will long be remembered by all with whom she was acquainted and especially the children whom she taught. For many terms she was a teacher at the Nelson school in Boyer township, which is in the extreme southwestern corner of our county. A visit to her school room showed the walls, and blackboards decorated by her artistic hand. Her last school was at Paradise center. She attend ed the Denison schools for some time, making her home with her uncle, Mr. Frank Fee, and thus many of our peo ple are acquainted with her. Our hearts go out in sympathy to the sor rowing sister and the family. Miss Sweeney made her home during a number of vacation times with Mrs. Bert Woodruff, of Goodrich township, who appreciated her noble character. Mr. and Mrs. Allen Beck, of Mason CUy, are expected in the city the lat ter part of the week for a visit with Mrs. Beck's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Strahan. Mr. Beck will leave Monday for a two weeks' business trip in Texas and his wife will remain for a visit during his absence.

CLOSE OF NOVEMBER DISTRICT COURT In the Case of Frahm vs Loewe Ver dict is Rendered by the Jury in Favor of the Plaintiff. District court will close at the end of this week and a large number of cases will go over to the next term for trial. Three weeks is scarcely enough time to dispose of the busi ness here. It may be that after we catch up with the work on hand that this period will be long enough to trans act all the business. Judge Hutchin son has crowded business along as fast as possible and no blame can be placed upon him for all the cases of the docket not being disposed of. The case of Miller vs Backhaus, which was on trial last week at the time the paper went to press, was dis posed of Thursday by the defendant paying the claim of plaintiff and the costs in the case, which resulted in the withdrawal of the case. On Monday of this week the case of Frahm vs Loewe was called for trial before the jury and was submitted to the jury yesterday afternoon, and last evening a verdict was rendered in favor of the plaintiff, which proved a compromise. The claim of the plaintiff being $275.00, while the ver dict of the jury was $100.00. This was a contest between two neigbora over the quantity of corn contained in a crib and should have been settled out of court. Another case of considerable im portance is the case of Alfred Birk hofer vs the Hamlin Construction company, and is brought to recover damages, as the plaintiff claims, are due to negligence in the construction of the drainage ditch through the plaintiff's land. The defendant's con tention is that it is not its fault and (Continued on Page Six.) the surplus stocks ot three ot the largest importers Real Steam Engines, Mechanical Toys of every description Air Ships, Walking Ducks, Running Mice and dozens of other toys, worth up to 50c and 60c your choice of the entire lot only 23c and 29c Opening Sale of Xmas Toys DENISON REVIEW Large Number of Cases Will Go Over "The Captain of Plymouth" Presented Until the Next Term of Dis trict Court for Trial.

Many Catchy Phrases and Patrons JKept on Alert to Catch Them— Reecipts Over $100. The Captain of Plymouth," comic operetta in three acts, was presented by the pupils of the Denison high school at the Germania opera house Tuesday evening, under the direction of Miss Beatrice Lally. instructor of music of the Denison public schools. Tlw opera house was filled to over flowing long before the time set for the operetta, with the friends and rel atives of those who took part in the program. The entertainment was a most cred itable one from start to finish and showed very careful training on the part of the participants. For many years it has been the custom of the high school pupils to give an enter tainment of this nature under the su perintendency of the musical director in order that the people of Denison may know just what is being done in the music department of the schools, and we feel safe in saying that never before have the high school students exhibited their musical talent to bet ter advantage than last evening. The program opened with the prelude played by Miss Mary Lally on the piano and Mr. J. V. Barborka as violinist, who furnished the accom paniment throughout the entire enter tainment, at the conclusion of which the curtain was raised for the first act, the scene being the colony of Plymouth. This was immediately fol lowed by the chorus of Puritans who sang "Happy are we, tho' far o'er the sea," which was particularly well ren dered and received a hearty applause from the audience. This was followed by a solo by Charles Seemann, who took the part of Elder Brewster, and orice.

Alden, a diligent scribe of Miles Standish, whose part was taken by Hubert VanNess, had been secured to present Miles Stand ish's offer of marriage to Priscilla, the fairest maid of Plymouth, and the part of Priscilla was taken by Miss Rachael Lally, who sang and presented her part in a pleasing manner. But before John Alden had delivered the propos al of Standish to Priscilla it is an nounced that Miles and his invincible army have arrived they are greeted by the Puritans, after which Standish exhibits his skill in drilling his army, comparing himself to Julius Caesar. Rowland Jones takes the part of Miles Standish in an exquisite and pleasing manner and his invincible army cre ated a great deal of mirth in the ex hibition of drills. Miles Standish at tempts to make love to Priscilla in this act, but his proposal is refused in a most curt manner and this act closes with the departure of the Pur itans. The second act portrays a scene in Priscilla's home and here we find her at the spinning wheel singing a love song, at the close of which Alden appears, still pressing the suit of Miles Standish, only to arouse her in dignation and asking him to speak for himself, and this scene closes with a beautiful duet rendered by John and Priscilla. The next scene finds Erasmus and Miles held captives by the Indians. The part of Erasmus was taken by Loyal Voss, who represented the part in a fine way. This is followed by an Indian ghost dance, headed by Paul Caswell, who displayed his musical genius. Katonka (Edna Henry) freed the captives after some persuasion on the part of Standish, who promised to wed ner, and the curtain was drop ped on the second act. Act three opened with a scene of the Plymouth colony, where the whole colony had gathered to celebrate the wedding of Priscilla and Standish.

ODDS IN FAVOR OF THE MAYOR Dispatch to World-Herald Says Pub* lie Opinion is About Equally Divided on Question The Omaha World-Herald of Sunday contains the following dispatch from Denison: 'Considerable agitation is manifest* ed over the erection of a popcorn and peanut booth on one of Denrson's main thoroughfares, and there is cpiisider able feeling between the'mayibr and the city council. The mayor issued a license to the popcorn vendor afid, it is claimed, without the sanction of the council. A meeting of the coun cil was held and the matter thorough ly aired, but no definite action taken. The mayor says if the booth is re moved he will immediately enforce the blue laws and close every place of business in the city on Sunday. He says he will prohibit merchants from the use of sidewalks for display of their goods and will clean up the en tire town. "Public opinion seems about equally divided over the affair, as the vender is an old soldier, with a family and says he has no other means of sup port. If the blue laws are enforced the citizens will be deprived of their Sunday papers, the postofflce will be closed, bakeries and candy shops will close as will livery stables and feed barns." It seems to be a contest between the mayor and marshal on one side in favor of maintaining the building on the public street, and the city council oq. J,he tfther, who are opposed to the street being used for ttye purpose of erecting and maintaining a building thereon to be used for business pur poses. It is dollars to doughnuts that the mayor and marshal! wilt' win out in the contest.
