COMMENTS ON INTERESTING
AND TIMELY TOPICS.
SENSIBLE AND SPIGY SENTIMENTS
Paragraphs That Will Intoroat
and Occasionally Amuso tho
Boador If Carofully Porusod
and Properly Digested.
A number of our monlod men who havo
been looking South for investments have
discovered that Shenandoah is a much bet
ter field for businoss enterprises and It
would not bo surprising to hear of a con-
tomp'atod movemont to furnish tho town
with a shoo factory. Tho manufacture of
shoes will pay, as they aro among tho most
saleable of articles. Besides this labor is
choap and thoro is plenty of it hero. Cheap
fuel is also hero in unlimited quantity find
it may bo depended upon that tho
starting of ono shoo factory will lead to
tho establishment of others, and all will
mako money,
,
Sinco the collapso of so many of tho get-rich-quick
companies thoro teems to bo a
disposition on tho part of many qf our
townnnon who havo mouoy to sparo to
look for homo investments. I'poplo hav
ing savings to Invost need not leavo Shen
andoah. Lakosido is stoadily grasping tho atten
tion of the people and, oro tho summer
closes, it will havo a hold that will not bo
readily shakon off. It will tako another
season to carry out tho plans of tho now
proprietors and then Xiakesido will be ono
of the most beautiful, healthful and popu
lar resorts of tho state? This will require
inonoy and labor, but tho parties behind
tho project will bo equal to all emergencies.
Tho time is not far distant whon offers will
bo made to take tho place off tho hands of
tho present owners and givo them a good
bonus. In fact totnpting offers to purchaso
at a much bettor prico than was paid for
tha placo by tho new concern havo been
made, but thoy havo boen refusod.
Major W. Gordon Jjillio Is pronounced
by tho press and public to bo the greatest
rifle shot In the country. His feats ol trick
and fancy shooting are marvolous. Ono ol
tho most remarkable feats is the breaking
of a glass ball, held in tho hand of Miss
May Lillio, whilo the former is sighting
tho mark by means of a mirror. As a
leader of cowboys ho has no superior. All
tho acts presented aro the result of careful
s.udy and ono novor tires wltnosiing tho
various exhibitions.
Miss May Lillie, tho champion female
crack and rifle shot of the world, is an ox
cellent lady and her performances are ox
coedlngly wonderful. While seated on the
back of a running mustang she breaks glass
balls thrown into tho air by cowboys. Her
style and grace adds materially in making
her performance a success.
Kaglo Eye, tho great Indian interpreter,
is ono of the leading lights of tho Wild
VVoet aggregatipn. He was raised among
the red skins, convorses In all thoir differ
ent languages and has an Interesting his

Mustnng Walter, tbo lasso thrower and
ridor, presents somo wonderful features.
Ho picks up coins from tha ground while
on horseback. His pony ex prets and

wins fur.him loud applauso.
Tho shouting exhibitions of Hoadwood
Dick and Oklahom Prank u-o excellent
Tho former is tho master of tho Winchester
rifle and bis fancy shooting is fine. Oltltv
boma Frank's exhibition of rifle shooting
was ono of tho features of tbo day.
Tha other members of this great show
contribute their quota to the portraying of
tho scones of tho far'Wett.
Tho stockholders of tho Trotting and
Athletlo Association are in trouble. Mr.
Hobbins, who rocently purchased the effects
of tho association at Sheriff's salo, and did
not recover enough to cover his claim, has
brought, suit to compel tho stockholders to
pay tho balancos duo on tbo subscriptions
to stock.
Mr. Robbins' action has caused a flutter
of excitement among tho stockholders,
Some of them havo thrown out all kinds of
bluffs and say thoy will stand suit, but tho
claimant is equally determined to receive
pay for tho tuatorlal he furnished the as
suci-vtion.
V
Of courso tbo suit will work a hardibii
m
1 upon several of our townsmen who at
truo sportsmen and stand ready at all timef
to givo thoir aid to anything in tho logitl
mato (porting line; hut thoy will bo obliged
to too tho mark for tho errors of others,
Tho falluro of the association can bo
attributed to but ono cause bad manage
mont. Had its affairs beon lookod after by
the proper parties tho stockholders would
not bo cotnpcllod to go down into thoir
pockets nt this late day and niako good the
losses. Shenandoah is a sporting town and
any well-managed and legitimato sporting
undertaking ought to succeed In it and pay
a profit. A prominent gentleman said tho
othor day, "I will havo to pay over forty
dollars to clear mysolf of liability, butthat
will not kill my appotilo for sport. I will
stand ready to go into any such undertak
ing again, but you can bet your boltcm
dollar that beforo I make mysolf liable I
will first seo that tho management Is In
good hands."
TWO MEN BURNED.
Explosion of Powdor In Shonan
doah City Colliery.
Mlchaol Welch, of West Lloyd Btrect,

two minors working in tho Shonnndoali

occurred at about nine o'cleck.
Welch was badly burnod about tho face
and hands, but tho injuries are not danger
ous. Tobln's neck was burned, but th'
burns wore of such a slight charactor that
modical attendanco was not required.
Welch was attended by Dr. Stein.
The mon say thoy cannot account for th'
oxplosion. Thoy had prepared a powder

when it oxplndod.

How tho plaintiff's conduct could possi

Tho developments of tbo baccarat trial
