During the afternoon, Mr. Saphar took us through the opera house from cellar to garret, and right here, we feel called on to say that Ot tawa has the finest opera house in Kan sas, in fact there are few in our west ern cities suDerior to this one. As the train did not leave Ottawa till 11:50 we had the pleasure of seeing "The German Volunteer," and to say it was grand would be putting it too mild. This was the third night of the play in Ottaw a, and the house was crowded as it iiatl been on the preceding nights y,v. Sanlutr -i a whole cireus in linn self, and with the assistance given him by Ottawa's best citizens, was able to dive a plav any town mignt be proud of Many of the enthusiastics went all three nights. Mr. Saphar will be at the opera house in this city March 18 19 and 20th, and as our best local .talent will assist him, and the proceeds be donated to the encampment fund, we will expect tho house to be crowded all three nights.

America at the opera house last night was well atten ded and listened to with remarkable attention. The essays were all meri torious and showed that the pupils in our city schools knew something of Col orado,also how to tell about iton paper in a manner to be interesting and in structive. Prof. Cooper's explanation of the ruins were also Interesting, the more so from the fact that he had a personal knowledge of many of the places described.

Our genial friend and neighbor, Dr. Sweeny Is seldom out of a Job, but he had one last week that he did not relish. Some one dumped some dead hogs by the road side near his house, and the Dr. was seen burying them. He might have used language not In the scriptures, but under the circum stances we could not blame him. First it -is a. "finable offense not fo burn or bury such dead stock to prevent the spread of disease; Second, it is a mean act to haul such carlon on other premi ses and leave the same exposed to all other stock. The entertainment at Rural the nignt of the 22nd, was a success as far as the program was concerned. The declamations were appropriate and well rendered, and also the tableaux; little George and Martha Washington by Mr. and Mrs. Ed Cole's little girls, brought down the house in loud ap plause. We very much regret that the latter part of the program was dispen sed with on account of a eertain noisy element from Chanute, who took more interest iu a disturbance than they did in the entertainment. Should boys from the country so disturb an audi ence in town, they would no doubt suf fer the penalty of the law. Flax Loan.
