The new Nailling building on the cor ner of First street and Washington ave nue is Hearing completion. When ready and occupied this will be one of the handsomest, modernly constructed and equipped business houses- in all the towns of the State. The room on the corner fronting First street will be occupied by the Red Cross Drug Company in the space of two or three weeks. The Farmers Exchange Bank expects to be installed and ready for business in ten days.

The front windows upstairs are large and wide. The whole front is of mod ern architecture. The front downstairs on the- corner, which is the Red Cross department, is of plate glass encased in brass trimmings, mounted on Italian marble.

The buildings and business houses when complete will be opened with a general reception and a cordial invita tion to the public to visit them. It will be worth a visit to come and inspect the entire building and its attractive quarters. ; Night Rate Reduced. New York, March G. The Postal Telegraph Cable Company announces that beginning Monday night, March 7, it will render night letter service be tween all offices on its own telegraph lines and the lines of its direct connec tions in the United States. Messages of this new class will be known as night letter telegrams. They wiJI be accepted at Postal Telegraph offices over the country or by telephone in the usual way. The charge for night letter telegrams of 50 words or less will be the regular day rate for 10 words, and one-fifth of this rate will be charged for each addi tional 10 words or less. They must be written in plain English. Code or ci pher will not be permitted. They will be accepted for transmission at night and delivered at destination on the morning of the next ensuing business day by mail or messenger at the option of the company. The Postal Telegraph Cable Company couples the foregoing announcement with a repetition of the statement re cently made by Clarence H.

Coal Coke Wood Call Tel. 150. 1 -"V - s ' . ..M V - V "Little Johnny Jones." "Little Johnny Jones" alounds in funny situations, laughable scenes and. tinkling musical gems, such as only Geo. M. Cohan can devise and write. It is a bit melodramatic, too, in spots, for instance, the finish of the second act,, which shows a pier at Southampton, England, with a big ocean steamship just leaving Ijer moorings for a trip to New York. Johnny Jones, who has. been ruled off the track for alleged foul riding, is attacked by a mob and only rescued after some pretty rough hand ling by "The Unknown." This one scene has never been duplicated upon any stage. Song hits without number punctuate the three acts of '.'Little Johnny Jones. " Here are a few of them that are sure to bo whistled for days after witnessing this Cohan play: "They're All My Friends," "Up in the 'Ansom," "Nesting in a New York Tree," "I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy," "Captain of the Ten Day Boat," "Good Bye Flo." "Good Old California," "There Is Nothing New Beneath the Sun" and "Give My Regards to Broad way." A Wyoming Girl was presented last night at the Rushville Opera House, and the show proved to be the best Western drama ever played here. . Miss Daisy Hazleton, who is starring in the part of "Scissors," gave a beauti ful and picturesque creation of a true Western girl. The lights and shades of the untutored girl were handled with great care, and her devotion to her weak minded father received much mer ited applause. Miss Lillian Douglas, who plays the part of Helen Denver, the school marrn, gave a strong dramatic portrayal of her part. Her scenes with the Mexican, her divorced husband, were particularly strong, and worked the audience to a high pitch of excitement. Mr. William LeRoy, who plays the part of George Washington Augusta Nibbs, is certainly the best black face comedian that has appeared here for many years. Lack of space will not allow us to in dividualize the entre cast, but suffice to say the supporting company are all capable actors and handle their parts with strong dramatic effect. The company carries all new and ap propriate scenery. N The specialties between acts are the best line of vaudeville. Mr. Fred C. Dawn, the general man ager, will always find a hearty welcome should he play a return date here. Rushville Banner. "A Wyoming Girl" will appear at Reynolds Opera House Thursday night, March 17.
