New York has a Home club corpora tion, which proposes to civilize and homify the fiat by re-establishing the home principle. It proposes united ownership of th e flat, but a fiat where of each family will use its own floor, decorating it after its own taste, hav ing permanency of residence. There are seven members of the Home club. Each expects to secure for himself and family all the advant ages and none of the drawbacks of the apartment house, the hotel and the private house. There will be little necessary house keeping. Meals may be taken in the club dining room or may be sent to the dweller's own dining room. To this extent and in the use of the drive way, garden and billiard rooms the venture will be co-operative. This experiment will be watched with interest. If seven families can co-operate in this way without quar deling many people who are now forced to be homeless might acquire a semi home. AMUSEMENTS "The Girl From Kays."

Since the days of our childhood cir cus, when old Dan Rice was the brightest shining star in the constella tion of arenic celebrities, it has been the usage of traveling shows to g've a street parade. Although Cozad's mam moth California dog, pony, monkey and goat circus has nothing of the old school flavor about the show it is a thoroughly up-to-date aggregation, they still adhere to one old tradition and give a grand parade each day. The principal reason of continuing the old custom is that while they are giving thousands a free treat, they are dis playing their magnificent animals and equipage and consequently getting ex cellent advertisement. In the Cozad animal show there are over three hun dred performing dogs, ponies, monkeys and goats. Each one of these has its part to play and that they success fully accomplish their tricks is best evidenced by the popular approval the Cozad show has met with upon its present tour. The show travels in its own special train and exhibits under its own waterproof tent. One per formance only will be given tonight, at the corner of Fourth and Elm streets. A free street parade will be given at 6 p. m. Star Theater.

He had been instructed to block the rush of Haylett O'Neil. He charged into i him with his head down as they came together and rolled over.

He seems entirely recov ered this morning. LEWISTCN IS THE TERMINAL Spokane and Inland Electric Line An nounces Proposed Route.

THE BUSTED "PHENOM." He had pitched for Barley Crossing, meeting every team that came; He had been the village idol —never lost a single game. He had trounced a team of leaguers in the fall of ninety-eight, Who were winding up the season playing "bushers" up the State. For hi.s speed was something awful, and his inshoots were immense, And his curves were like the zigzag of the in-and-out rail fence. So the fans of Barley Crossing ('twas a loyal little town Dwelt upon the matchless prowess of the cunning Hiram Brown. "I remember," said the barber, "when he pitched ag'in La Crosse, All them guys was lost, I tell you, worse n little Charley Ross," "Was you there," asked Grocer Purdy, "when he pitched ag'in Eau Claire? Wal, I 'low they felt like monkeys when he made 'em fan the air." "He can bat, too," said the blacksmith. "Gosh, I seen 'im souse that ball Out so far in centerfieM they never brung it back at all." i So the fans of Barley Crossing when they heard that he had signed With the Nationals of Boston, reckoned Hiram was a find. Hiram got his chance in Boston, on a balmy summer day "It's your turn; go in and get 'em," Hiram heard the captain say, And the rooters in the bleachers murmured, "Where's his overalls?" Wheia he hit the next three batsmen and gave Flynn a base on balls. "Stick 'em over!" yelled the captain; "make 'em hit!" the shortstop roared. When the cannonading ended half a dozen runs were scored. Late that week, at Barley Crossing, when the Limited struck town, Stragglers welcomed back a twirler known as Mr. Hiram Brown. • • • • ♦ : but our : • ♦ : Fall and Winter Suits j I i * are not like Mr. Hiram Brown.

Those who desire may rema'n and participate in the dancing by purchasing tickets from the committee. The public is reminded that there will be no charge made for the inspection of the build ing, but those that dance will have to "pay the fiddler."
