FROM IOWA'S ' STATE CAPITAL , Discovoiy of a Bogns Egg Manufactory in DCS MoincSi A MARRIAGE IN HIGH LIFE. A Threml-Unro Confidence Onino So * cures One Moro Victim Two Bad Klovntor Accidents Matters In Politics. It Dispenses With Chickens. Dr.s MOIXKS , April 18. [ Special. ( There was quite a sensational dlsvovcry made yester day , of an establishment which it is alleged lias been engaged for some months In man ufacturing bogus eggs , which have been sold for the genuine article. The factory Is lo cated In n Walnut street basoinotit , and It Is claimed that It has a capacity of l.OJO eggs a day. As described by these who have visited this secret establishment , there are largo vats filled , ono with n yellow compound , thu other with a starchy mixture , which supply the matter for the whites and yolks of Iho eggs. The enterprising Inventor of this process claims to have dlscoveicd It after making a chemical analysis of the egfr , nnd. concluding that ho could supplant by artificial means tha faithful , plodding hen. After long experi menting , ho succeeded In making a fairly KOOU Imitation egg , and then constructed machinery for nmnufacturlng tlioin. The yellow or yolk of tlio egg Is said to bo a mix ture of Indian meal , corn starch and several other Ingredients poured while In a mushy Btato Into n mould and. hardened into the de sired shape. Around this Is placed a mixture of albumen and other chemical constituents of the white of the egg , and then their filmy skin is next attached and the whole Is then surrounded by a plaster of parls shell a trillo thicker than the genuine article. It is re potted that a largo number of these bogus eggs have been placed upon the market and used without the fraud being discovered. The leading social event of the past week vas the marriage Thursday evening of Mies Carrie Cole , daughter of ox-Chief Justice Cole , of the Iowa supreme court , to Mr. J. It. Ilurlhut , a prominent young business man of this city. The groom Is a sou of the present receiver of the Chicago Times , and the bride Is well known throughout central * to\va as ono of the leading and most at- Cractlvo members of society. Colchester 3'lace , the scene of the wedding , was bril liantly Illuminated and decoratedand several hundred guests wcio present from this and other cities. The old familiar confidence game has just been perpetrated again , this time upon nn old gentleman coming west over the Itock Island. At Davenport ho was approached by the usual gentlemanly stranger who had a draft for S2.000 but couldn't wait for the banks to open to get it cashed. He had S10 of back freight charges to pay and wanted to take the train , and so offered the old gentleman the draft and his overcoat as security for an advance of the needed amount. The money was given. The stranger went to pay the freight , and has been gene over since , leaving the old gentleman with n worthless check , a dollar and a half oveicoat and a whole ton of profitable experience. The use of elevators in buildings , now be coming so frequent , Is giving rise to many serious accidents , of which two oo- cmrc'd yesterday. A young lady artist , Hiss Lizzie Gowdy , boarding at the Kirkwood , when starting for breakfast , stopped.as she ' " Hupposc'd into the elov.itor , only to" find it gone , and she fell to the bottom of the de scent , and was taken up unconscious with ono arm broken , several scvcio cuts upon the face , and dangerous inter nal injuries. About the same time Mr. Slater , of the tan ot Honing & Slater , vinegar manufacturers , walked down an ele vator way at his factory , supposing the car was in Its place. Ho was taken up with a leg broken so as to require amputation , and wl th spinal Injuries that are likely to prove fatal Two such frightful accidents in one day are enough to cause the most careless to bo care ful. ful.Tho The legislature that has just adjourned has really done but little mischief , as an exami nation ot the bills passed now shows. Out of about 1,000 bills introduced , not more than half a do/.en vicious bills were passed , which shows the good work that was done in kill ing bad ones. The democrats an : howl- jug n little about the gerryinandoilntj , as they call It , by which the state was reapportloned into congressional nnd representative districts , but when their attention Is called to a congressional map of South Carolina and other southern states that have been fixed by democrats , they have nothing to .say. .ricpiir.uions are bolng made for the im- iicaclimcnt trial of Auditor Brown. It is understood thatho will bo defended by Judge Uomso , of this city , ox-Senator Bills , of Davenport , and some democrat , not yet named. The question Is now raised that the senate will have no jurisdiction to try this case , as tlio acts for which Ihown Is to bo tried chiefly occurred during his ilrst term of ofllco. This may or may not bo given any \\olght , but a number ol' Mich questions will undoubtedly bu raised before the case Is fin ally disposed of. Knllronrt Work Begun. 'Si. Sioux Crrv , Iowa , April 18. A good deal of stir was created In railroad elides yester day by the appearance of a largo lorco of Chicago , Milwaukee A ; St. St. Paul graders , nnd the beginning ofoika few miles cast of the eit ) . The company has had In con templation for some time the building of a ' road Irom this city to connect with the Coun cil llhilfs and Chicago line at or near Do- lianco , a distance ot about elghty-tlvo miles. The proposed line of the Sioux City and DCS Moiues parallels the Defiance line tor a num ber of miles fiibt of this city , and this sudden movement of the Milwaukee company Is sup posed to have been piomplcd by uunstroto bo Hist to occupy the gioiind. It Is said that the entire line Is under contract , and that the work will bo pushed to oarlycompletlon. ; Shutting Jown Saloons. CUNTON' , Iowa , April 18.

Clean the glass of pictures by dioping n , cloth into alcohol and water and then into whiting , and rub over it , and wino dry with a. silk handkerchief. The cleanest and most polished floors have no water used on them at all. They are simply rubbed oft' every morning with a largo llanncl cloth , which is steeped in kerosene oil once in two or throe weeks. Shako clean of dust , and with a rubbing brush or stubby broom go rapidly up and down the planks ( not across ) , in a few rubbings the floor assumes a polished appearance that is not easily defaced by dirt or footprints. Straw matting should bo washed with warm salt and water ; wring out ti soft cloth in it and apply quickly ; not wet ting the matting much , only enough to take out the dust and htains. Lemon juice and salt "will remove ordi nary iron rust. If the hands arc stained there is nothing that will remove the stains so well as lemon. Cut the lemon in half and apply the cut surface as it it were soap. Tlio smell of paint may bo taken away by closing tip the room nnd setting in the center of it a pan of lighted charcoal on which have been thrown some juniper berries. Leave this in the room for a day and a night , when the smell of paint will bo gone. Some persons prefer a pail of water in which a handful of hay is soak ing. This is also cflectual in removing the ficcnt of tobacco smoke from a room. The best way to brighten a carpet is to nut a half tumbler ot spirits of turpen tine in a basni of water and dip your broom in it and sweep over the carpet once or twice. Silver is not in frequent use will not tarnish if rubbed in oatmeal. Clean cane chairs by satusating the csno well witli a sponge and hot water , using soap if necessary ; then put in the open air or in a good current of air , and as it dries it will tighten and become as firm as when new.

DEATH OF THADDEUS FAIRBANKS The Great Invontormul Manufacturer ol' Scnlcs I'nsscH Awny. Thaddctis Fairbanks , the great Amer ican inventor , died April 13 in his 05th year , at his homo in St. Johnsbury , Vt. llo is tlio last of the original members of the firm of E. & T. Fairbanks , Who half n century ago established a primitive scale manufactory in the Passumpsio river valley. Thaddous was SO years old when his parents removed to Vermont. His father was n farmer nnd carpenter by occupa tion , and built and operated ti saw nnd grist mill. Joseph ralrbapks died in 1810 , his son tlion being CO years old. In 1821 Thaddcus was joined by his brother Erastus , who had been engaged in the mcrcanlilo trade , and the llrm of E. & T. Fairbanks was that year formed for the manufac ture of stoves and ploughs of cast iron. The largo amount of lieiup raised in northern Vermont created a demand for a dressing machine. After manufac turing three of the great liaynes ma chinery for dressing hemp at their shops , the Messrs. Fairbanks began in 1830 the manufacture of a hemp dresser invcnrcd and patented by Thaddeus. The standard scales in use at that time were , that time were the oven balance and the lloman steelyard. Tlio only device for weighing carts is n lover suspended high up trom n gallows frame , from the short arm of which chains hung that could bo hooked around the cart axle , and from the long arm a plarform on which weights could bo placed. The genius of Thaddous Fairbanks suggested the construction of a weighing machine which should bo an improvement of thu crude and clumsy device then in use for weighing farm produce. Fo set to work mm soon had a model scale mado. His first arrangement was to place an A-shapod lover in a suitable pit , and upon it to balance on kmfo edges a free plat form , upon which a cart could bo driven level with the ground. To keep this platform from rocking upon its support no framed it into a vertical post well braced , and from the top of this attached level chains to lixcd posts upon either side. These chains being level did not draw up or down , and the weight of the load was correctly indicated upon the steelyard beam from which the end of the A-shaped lover hung. As the scale was a new article of manufacture , Mr. Fairbanks had to grapple with all the problems of con struction. , He g uyo the best part of his lifq to perfecting and improving the weighing machine. Thaddous Fairbanks witnessed a phenomenal increase each decade in the business of tlio sealo in dustry , until , at the time of his decease , an army of COO arisans and mechanics found employment in the manufacture of over 80,000 standard scales of every conceivable style and size. St. Sohnsbury is proud of its accdcmy erected anil endowed by the munificence of Thuddues Fairbanks his benefaction representing an expenditure of $200,000. Thaddcus Fairbanks was married January 17 , 1820 , to Lucy P. , daughter of ISarnabas Barker- Two children blessed their union , ono of whom sorvivos Hov.

Secret Service Detective In Detroit Free Press : In January , 1SG3. the secre tary of the treasury was notified that anew now and dangerous counterfeit on a Cincinnati national bank had boon put alloat in Boston. The detective bureau being notified in turn I was detailed on the case and left for Boston the same day. About if3,000 of the queer-'hiid b'ccii floated in- ono day , and the work had been done by a woman. At ono place she. had purchased $000 worth of diamonds mends ; at another a $200 gold watch ; at another n diamond bracelet. The goods in all cases were such articles as could be sold again for at least half their value. Each victimized party described her differently. At the first place she was a blonde , plainly dressed. At the next she was a brown-haired woman in mourning ; at the third she had black hair , was showily dres ed and claimed relationship with a well-known family. After a day spent in taking notes and making deduc tions , I came to the conclusion that there was only one woman in the case , and that she had assumed disguises. Bos ton was thoroughly searched for her , and 1 had not yet found a clue when the chief telegraphed me that she had ap peared in Philadelphia. I reached that city to find that she had purchased $1,000 worth of diamonds in one place and $800 worth at another , paying , of course , in counterfeit bills. The lirst jeweler de scribed her as a showy woman , with gold in her upper front teeth. The second jeweler described her as very plain.and demure , nnd he was sure that she had no gold in her teeth. I had set out under the belief that Iliad only ono woman to deal with , and I would not now admit there were two. I looked Philadelphia high and low for females - males bearing the description , and at the end of four days received another tele gram from headquarters. She had ap peared in Pittsburg , where she had made three different purchases of jewelers. I hastened to Smoky City as soon as possi ble , and , lot the three descriptions given wcro so entirely different that one was al most sure there were three women at work Jloating off the counterfeits. One jeweler has been mashed on his customer , and. had therefore taken par ticular notice that her eyes wcro blue , her hair brown and liqr heighth medium. She had gold in her upper front teeth , and was alfected in her ways and speech. The second jeweler wasn't mashed , but ho was an old detective , and ho noticed that she had brown eyes , dark hair , a mole on her chin and plain white teeth. There was nothing allectod about her. The third jeweler could swear thai she had black Hair , gold in her lower teeth , a slight squint in ono eye , and stammered a bit as she talked. I hunted Pittsburg for three clays , but mot with no success. Believing she would next turn up at Indianapolis , I started for that city without orders , tak ing a sleeping car on a night train. It was a woman who had the lower berth next to mine , and as I looked her over I made up my mind that she was a school teacher nnd an old maid. She had red hair , dressed plainly , and paid not the slightest attention to anyone. When tlio porter came to make her berth he placed a rather bulky sachol belonging to her on the seat at my feet , and she found a temporary ary seat at the other end of the car. The jar of the cars jostled the sachol to thu lloor after a bit , and , as I stooped over to pick it up , I found thu lloor covered with wigs , cosmetics , small brushes , pieces of crayon and false tenth. There-were three wigs of dllforent colors , and t\yo upper nnd two under sots of teeth. In one the gold was in the Upper ; in the other it was in thu lower. Well , yon may believe that with my mind full of the mysterious woman and her disguise , I was not long in concluding that 1 had stumbled upon the person wanted. I rcplascd the articles in the sachol ami walked ovR to her and made known my errand. She gave mo a tor.- riblo tongue-hushing nnd called on the passengers for protection , but when I re vealed 1115' identity and emptied the con tents of the sachcl on a seat , aho gave in. Wo got oft'at Steubenvillo , and , when 1 had her searched , over 4,000 hi the counterfeits were brought to light , but her purchases were not to ho found , she having shipped them , to confederates , Shewas the wife of the notorious "Black Dan,1 , ' and the pair were the most danger ous couple in America at that time , Wo got her husband in a week or two , rtnd , while ho got a sentence pf twenty-two' yeard , she gqt off with seven. Milwftukeos Win in Sunday's Game Union Padfica ! Victorious Saturday , SOME VALUABLE SUGGESTIONS , By n Prominent Oinnlin Capitalist \B to the llodi-d of Trndo Mem bers lln'u , Notes IJrovl- tlcsVarious Items. Itnso Ball Game. Tlio traditional ninth-inning luck of the Union Pacifies did not servo them yes terday afternoon in their contest with tlio Alii wan kco team. Iho beginning of the lastinning found thoscoro heavily against the homo team , and strenuous cflorts wcro powerless to reverse it. The day , despite n rather heavy wind. which sprang up Into in the afternoon , could not have been improved upon. It was neither too warm nor too cold , and suited exactly both the players and specta tors. Of the latter , there wcro probably 1 ,500 or 2,000 , including these In fie grand stand and the carriages scattered in the driveway about the park. They had boon attracted by the hopes of seeing a sharp , spirited contest between the two nines. In this they wcro somewhat disappointed , for barring the lirst few miiings.thogamo was full of errors on both sides , and , as a consequence , quite un interesting. The Union Pacifies that is the backbone thereof batted well ami played a fairly good gamo. But several ot tlio new members , notably the short stop and second baseman , played an in- dilleront game , making some rank er rors , which cost at least three out ot the four runs made by the Milwaukee team. The visitors , on the other hand , while making a number of errors , distributed them at such intervals as to have little effect on the final outcome of the gamo. Their fielding was remarkably clean and sharp , and their batting fairly up to the average The game opened auspiciously for the Union Pacifies. Handle stopped to the bat. sent a , grounder vyliijwing past the infield. lie readied first , and on hits by McKolvoy and Kob- inson , scored the lirst run for his side. The U. P's. then retired , on outs by Rook- wo 1 , Salisbury nnd Strock. Tlio Mil waukee team scored nothing in their half of the inning. In the second inning Anderson com pleted three onts for tup homo team by making n rash , ill-advised attempt to steal third , where ho was nipped by a skillfully handled ball from the infield. The Milwaukccs sent Carnes to the bat. He gained first by knocking an easy grounder to McKelvey at third base which was fumbled. ' alle'jvas caught napping , however , and cut pif at first by a clean , sharp throw tronio Salisbury. The next two batsmen 'strubk out. In the sixthiUining McKelvoy , by dint of superb baNe-running , managed to score a run tile In&t one for tlio homo team. J1 The fatal seventh arrived , and to use a slang term , ijtjhat stage the goose of tlio Union Pacifies \vt\s \ cooked. The homo team scored nqlhing in their half , and the Milwaukee's wenb.to bat. Casey struck out. llhodos on a clean hit gained first. lie was followed by Pickett , who struck out. Then Sexton stopped into the breach and knocked a long grounder to second. base , which wi s badly fumbled by liau-n ton , giving the ( batter a lift. Crawford then batted a grounder to McKelvoy. which was thrqwn by that usually accu rate player wildly to lirst , allowing all three Rliodcs , Sexton and Crawford to score. In the eighth inning the Union Pacifies did nothing , while the Milwau kccs added one to their list of tallies. The remaining inning did not effect the scjrc , and the game clqscd with a. re sult of 5 to 2 in favor of the Milwaukces. Some Valuable Suggestions , Editor BEC : i noticed in your Satur day's issue a pertinent nrticle on com pelling board of trade members to attend called meetings , etc. Talk is cheap , especially when signed citizen , but the great need of co-operation by members in fostering that which may in right ways contribute to the growth and busi ness development of our city , .should bo mot , and I will with your permission through your paper offer what 1 think may bo a solution to this knotty problem as to how members can bo gotten to gether in formidable numbers , and how an organization can bp formed and plans carried out which will enable manufac turers to locate in this city. First , then , as to bringing together members for tlio consideration of any important business : ' Steps should betaken taken at once to get the Omaha club , at a fair , equitable rent , to occupy all the third lloor of the new board of trade building and half the second floor , nnd the latter serve as a1 dining room for both the club and the board of trade , and oven by the former the other half of the second story would be ample for board of trade purposes for the next ton or twenty years. This arrangement would bring to the board of trade the very clement most needed tor an IncrcaFcd membership and ovory-day attendance , and thereby serve the board of trade in giving it now life and active enterprise ; and this arrange ment would also servo the club in afford ing it ample dining room facilities in common with the board of trade below and still maintain its club private to club members on tlio third lloor. A few recess apartments could bo provided with din ing tables at the south end of the club room lloor and served by dummies run ning from a kitchen in the top story to the dining room below. If this arrange ment cannot bu brought about in any other way , I would jfiiggost that the board of trade monibej'S.ii.nd the club members join in building a chamber ot commerce building instead' df a board of trade building , mill both the board of trade and club rent from' the chamber of commerce stock eonipanyso formed. In a word , if these two organizations could bo induced to occupy the 0110 build ing , nnd the , , pJans bo immedi ately changed " to jiccommodato both , it would insure "thq southwest corner of Sixteenth and Fnrnrim to become a live place of immense interest to our city , in sure the snoccs ] of [ the hoard of trade , and provide the Omaha club with ample room , which is notnioro than half bup- plied at their prfisenL quarters. The board of trade could wiill'hflord to toll part of their stock to U' cliainber of commerce stock company , amrinvost the same in a largo storage olwvatwr some time in the future after they stiull occupy their now rooms. ' 1 don't wish to make myself conspicur ous by dictating or suggesting. , but 1 do wibh that the olhcers and directors of these two organizations would immedi ately get together and discuss the whole matter alluded to. I will simply add my theory as to how manufac tories can be induced to locate in Omaha. Form a company of. $100,000 paid up capi tal , with an authorized capital of $250- 000 , buy a tract of hind within ono to two miles of the Bolt line , composed of highlands and a vavlno nt $200 to $300 per acre , the ravine to afford track facili ties to connect with the Bolt line , all with the understanding nnd positive agreement that one-third of such land shall bo given in proper amounts , free of charge , to accommodate manufacturies. und Urn : the remaining twothirds.shall no sold to manufactory employes at prices not to exceeil pi'r acre twice tlio cost , ami that said ' company bliall spend § 1,000 n year in advertising our manufacturing facilities , nnd $2,000 anually for stationery ana a salary to a secretary who shall devote his entire time for the company. Hcspeclfullv , P. C. IllMKUAUOII. O.MA1IA , April 10 , 1830. IXTEnESTlMO hETTEK From F. 91. Corliss to the Count- Com * inlsstoncra. The county commissioners have boon for some time considering the ad visability of buying a tract of land near the city nnd building a now poorhouse nnd insane asylum for the county insane on it. Several views have boon aired on the subject , but all seemed impracticable. County Com missioner F. M. Corliss sent in the fol lowing communication Saturday on this question : To the Honorable , the Hoard ot County Commissioners of Douglas County 1 hoicby protest against any further use of the county poor farm ns a potters field. Wo aio now using laud to btuy our pauper dead and all city poor \shlch will In the near future bo valuable and should not be used for that pur pose. I would suggest that some stops betaken taken at once to slop the further use ot said land for said puiposo , ami also to adopt some plan for erecting buildings for the care of the poor and sick of Omaha. As our population Incirases our poor increases In proportion. The same bulldlm ? wo had for J5,000 inhabitants wo now have for 75,000 In habitants. Our last monthly leport would show eighty-six in the poor house , ten In St. Joseph's hospital and tun more wo aio board- Inn out and in the jail. Our poor house was built In on early day and is not supplied with tha necessities lemurcd for the present num ber of patients. Our Insane , sick and lylne- in patients are all huddled In together and can not get proper care. My idea would bo to buy twenty acies a few miles from the city and build what you mlchtcalla poor house. It would bu for life patients , and also estab lish a burial eround on the same and to build n city hospital on the west side of the poor farm. Now , a peed many will say that no part of the poor tnnn should bo used for that pur pose , but 1 contend that a hospital should beef of easy access. The patients are tiaiisiont , coming and going daily , and of a class who will not stand much Irniispoitntion. If the law would boar the commissioners out , I would buJn favor of Icavlnc a small amount of Kioundto other chaiitable corpoiatlous , who would establish and maintain hospitals for the care of the sick and wounded. 1 have visited n number of eastoin cities In the past year and find That Omaha is far behind the times In the way of public elmirtlcs.Vo have now thlity incuinblc In&ano , with no means ot separating them from the sick.

The effects of the warm weather are being felt in trade circles , in an incieased demand for summer needs , ot all kinds , and a falling off In the demand for those clafsos of goods which pertain more especially to the colder seasons. Theio is also an lucieascd demand for everything used by builders , lumber , lime , hardware , etc. The produce uiaikets have been fairly act ive the past week. The season Is having its effect upon the produce markets as well as upon the wholesale trade. Dressed poultry , game , cir. . aio becoming scarcer , and live fowls and spring vegetables aio taking their place. The egg maiket has boon a little stiongor tlio past few days than a week ago. The lirst of the week sales wcro nuulo as low as Oc , but gradually strengthened , the bulk of sales being madoato c ; the week cloned at lOc. The advance 1ms apparently been caused by the heavy shipments which have cleared up all the surplus stock. The low rates to the Pacific coastjliavo enabled Bhippt'rs to ship on very small margins , and that fact has had a tendency to loice the market above what It would naturally bu at tills point. There are no ne\v leatuies in the butter innikct. It is the same old. complaint ot an abundance ot poor butter and ascaicify of good or choice cradcs. Imitation butter has its own way , to a- great extent , for In many cases buyers are compelled to take it or nothing. Theio is not more tlmn half enough choice dairy butter coming into this market toMipplythedemand. The bulk ol the rocoints ot butter Is not lit lor food , and can only ho used niter It lias been reworked and repacked. Live fowls are in good demand and have sold readily all the week , The re ceipts have not bcn equal to the demand , and sales of good chickens have been made all the way from 83.00 to 15.75. Dressed poultry of all kinds is slow sale , and the bhlppnr fccmllnsr any to market must neces sarily run considerable ilsk. Game has al most entirely disappeared from the maiket , and very little more is expected to airivo this season. The potato market remains in about the same condition as a week ago. While there Is a good deal of Inquiry tioin parties having potatoes to soil , tliero is very little de mand for thorn among the bn vcr.s. The retail dealers are only buying in small lots. Rail Notes. No more work will bo done on the Union Pacific bridge caissons until after the Juno rise. At present the men are engaged in working on the superstruct ure , and adjusting the piers of the old bridge so as to enable a largo passage way to bo put on. A largo force of workingmen - ingmon is employed. Last night a "land slide" occurred on the Burlington & Missouri road a short way this hide of Sclloviow. It seems that the river runs along the track for a short distance , and , running along ( ho track , washed away the ties and rails for some hundred feet , making a very dangerous place. Happily , the engineer saw it and no ono was hurt. The damage is nominal. J. A , Monroe , general freight agent of the Union Pacific , has returned from Kansas City , II. A. Johnson , his nssLsF- ant. went to Chicago Saturday. The freight department is engaged upon a now tanlf , which ulfeets the delivery of freights at all points in Nebraska. It will bo issued in a week or two , and will bo the mo-t bulky volume of the kind ever issued by this department Col A. C. Dtuvos , the well known rail road man of S.t. Joe , Is in the city. Friday evening , Missouri Pacific train No. 2t ran into a .switch angina at PlattH- mouth , derailing live cars , but injuring no ono. Two of the cars contained bar reled molasses , and the ground near the wreck was quite a treat for the negro res idents. they coming out in a body with tin pails , etc. , in a grand rush for it. Tha damage was confined to the live cars and track torn up a short distance. No change in rates yet. Quito a number of eastern railroad men were in the city yesterday. On Friday night Dr. Mairs , a young dentist of Central City , Nob. , on attempt- Jug to climb through a standing freight of the Union Pacific at that place at 10UO : o'clock , had his loft foot badly crushed between the bumpers , which may neces sitate amputation.

The 1'roposoO Ilouto for This Year's Pleasure Trip. On Saturday afternoon the members of the executive committee of the Nebraska Press association hold a mooting for the purpose of deciding a route to bo taken for a vacation trip this summer. The following members were present : PresIdent Idont E. M. Corroll , Secretary II. M , Bushnoll , nnd Frank 11. Morrissey , of the Herald ; C. W. Pool , Tecumseh ; F. H. Kiseley , Culbortson : Will N. King , Red Cloud ; J. A. MacMurphy , Soliuvlor ; L. A. Stevens , of North Platto. The committee arranged for an excursion for the second week in July. Three routes were proposed ; the lirst from Lincoln to Denver , lonvor to Santa Fo nnd thence to Mexico and return ; the second from Omaha to St. Paul and Minneapolis , to Yellowstone park ami from thcro to Ta- noma and homo via Salt Lake and Denver ; tlio third from Omaha to San Francisco and return via Salt Lake and Denver. The committee , on Invitation of Mayor Boyd. attended tlto performance of "A Bunch of Keys , " and had an enjoyable timo. After some discussion the committee decided to favor the routes in the order named , and the sccretaty was instructed to correspond with the railroads regard ing transportation and to report at an adjourned meeting to bo holilln this city on May IGth. The committee then adjourned. The brand 1'ronicuailo Concert. The third of the series of grand promenade nado concerts , inaugurated by tlio Expo sition Building association , was given last Saturday evening before a largo and cul lured uudiunco. As usual , the management displayed good judgment in presenting a pro gramme of popular as well as classical music , and in engaging musicians and singers who are prime favorites. The work of tlio Musical Union orclics tra , under the direction of Mr. F. M. Steinhauscr , was very good , but would have been more effective and enjoyable had the full membership boon present and ono ortwo changes made in their so lections. Amoiig the pleasing numbers given by this organization were Aubor's overture from "Fra Diavnlo , " and a minuotto by Mr. S. G. Pratt , director of the Omaha Oratorio Festival. The latter number is quite conspicuous for originality , pos sesses much merit and shows nuisicianly work. Mr. Pratt is undoubtedly a clover composer , and talent like his , with prop er training and development , must of ne cessity produce brilliant results. Much interest was felt in tlio appear ance of Mrs. J.V. . Cotton , a soprano of considerable note , who has recently located in this city. Courtesy to strang ers would alone compel especial mention of the Indy , but happily shfl has more than a claim on the hearers' goueiositj1 to make , for she has talent that needs no support but its intrinsic worth a talent that demands approbation from all. She was accorded a hearty reception as she stepped upon tho. stage to sing Verdi's aria from "Emani , " and at once revealed the benefits of much culture , showing a sweet , clear voice of considerable power , well-trained and answering the demands upcm it readily and with correctness. In response to a hearty encore she sang a ballad o.f a choice character. Owing to sudden indisposition she was unable to appear for her second number , Abt's cuckoo song , much to the .regret of all present. Mrs. Cotton is a very valuable acquisition to Omaha's limited list of really good sopranos. A great feature of Iho evening was the Lotus Glee Club , composed of Messrs. Bnrtlett , Brigham. Wilkins and Reed. Their first selection was Goring's lovely solo quartette , Autumn Sunset , a poetical composition , bright and sparkling , at tlio same time intricate , and requiring for a successful rendition well trained and cultivated voices. In this tlio club were all that could bo de sired , their interpretation being very correct and the harmony of voice most delightful. For an encore they gave with much feeling and delicate shading Foster's Old Kentucky Homo. But the most pleasing and arti&tically rendered four-part song given by the club was Soifort's More and More. In this the blending of voices , the phrasing nnd ar ticulation and the cresccndos nnd the accolorandos were absolutely faultless and truly inspiring. The result was a demand on the part of the delighted audience for more and more music , and encore after encore , to all of which tlio gentlemen very graciously responded. The last two orchestral numbers on the programme were for those who wished to indulge in their loyo for the waltz and a good number availed them selves of the privilege. The fourth concert of the scries will bo given next Saturday evening by the Mendelssohn Quintette club ot Boston. 1 am prepared to make loans at 8 percent ' cent on city' mid Douglas county prop erly in sums of $500 up.

About thirty men assembled in a South Omaha baleen yesterday atlcrnoon for the purpose of witnessing a cocking main. After a good deal of talking two birds , a brown dominlck and a cock of hybrid breed , were placed upon a carpet armed with two nnd one-quarter inch gall's , The bints weighed four pounds and four ounces each and apparently were evenly matched , At the second lly , however , the brown cock brained the other one with his right spur , ending the light in one-fourth of a minute , There was considerable discussion in regard to getting moro sport , but no one seemed willing to back the birds und the main ended with the first light. Homes Ijllco I'nrmllsc. Cincinnati has the reputation of having the most beautiful and happy suburban homes in the country.

GODLINESS IS PROFITABLE , The 0,000 , People at the Eoviynl Loan This Tact , A va SUCCESSFUL MEETING. The nov. Mr. Hitler Has ft Imrco Awl- loiico to Ijlstou to Ills Vlows Upon the Tenets of Chrls- tlnnlty. The Sumlny Itovlvnt. At 8 o'clock last night there wal scarcely a vacant seal in tlio exposition building. The conductors of the revival had nirulo up their minds to liavo hist night the most ovcntf ul occasion of the scries of meetings. The churches joined with them and but few religions exor cises were hold In Omaha except these at the exposition building. Tills , In a largo measure , accounted for the presence of the 0,000 people who came to worship for that scorned to bo the motive of their coming. Sawdust had boon plentifully sprinkled upon the tloor ami its excellent effect was manifested by the absence of the noise. which , to a certain extent , di&turbed the previous meetings. The usual song service of half an hour's duration was held , af * tor which the Rev. Lr. Lowry kneeled at the front of the platform ami delivered a prayer , remarkable both for Its eloquence mill earnestness. Ho carried the audl- once with him completely and every sen tence was listened to with the utmost at tention. Dr. Lowry is a man of line bearing and dignified presence. Ilia voice is powerful nnd rich in quality and without apparent oll'ort he made it penetrate every portion of the vast hull. Ills gold bowed spec tacles and while looks made his remark's about Hearing the end of life peculiarly patht'tic. His line physique and rugged face show , however , that the years in their lllght have dealt lightly with him. The llov. Mr. Hitler saidtlial the mectin" during the afternoon had been a delightful one. "Thoro were 1,000 young men present , " said he , "and the nunibur would doubt less have been greatly increased had it not been for the other attraction. " He did not say whcthor tlio other at traction was the ball guino or the cock light , but probably meant the former. Before the collection was taken ho stated that Mr. MoKaig had become personally liable for the rent of the hall , and as ho himself had no pecuniary in terest in the collection , lie would ask that the contributions ho liberal. "Pray for my husband , who is resisting the Holy Spirit , " was the first request read by Mr. Joplin. "Nineteen prisoners at the jail request the prayers of the congregation that they may lead different lives , " was another petition. "A young man requests your prayers that his dcsiro for playing cards may betaken taken away , " road another. "Pray for my boy who is on an engine on the Rio Grande road , " asked a mother. The Uov. Mr. Harris then made an earnest prayer , asking the Lord ( o look with mercy upon those who made tlio requests. lie especially besought niorcy for tlio prisoners' in the jail , and spoke of the great responsibility which rusted upon the engineers and rail road men throughout the whplo country , and prayed fervently that they might till become Christian men. "Godliness Is Profitable" was the sub ject of Mr. Hitler's sermon "There is an absurd idea , " ho.'said , "that godliness is not profitable , and consequently a great many business men reject it. Th"y say it isn't practical and takes all the pleas ure out of life. But , Oh , my friends , if yon give your heart to the Savior , you just get ready for tlio present life. You will sec more beauties in life , enjoy it more , and reap more bonolit from it. Take the worst man in Omaha and Omaha isn't the worst place in tlio world and call him an ungodly man. If ho is the worst man in Omaha he's making his way right down to hell. Ho is doing just what Clod don't want him to do. "Take a Godly man on the other hand , and he's honest , pure , sober and upright. AH the difference between these two char * actors is that which represents the profit * ablencss of Godliness. " In speaking of those men who , although they did not believe in the tonels of Chris tianity , yet wore honest and upright , ho said that they owed their honesty and morality to the Christian inllui'naus which permeated the community in which they livi'd. "By all that an honest life is bettor than a life of dishonesty , " continued ho , in an earnest manner , ' 'by all that 11 sober life is belter than u life of debauchery , by all that a pure man ! H bolter than a licentious man , Godliness is profitable. Godliness will take tl.o whisky out of a man ; it will make iiim an affectionate husband , a loving father and a dutiful son. There isn'ta homo In tins country which God liness will not lift ii ) ) and make happy. Oh ! how profitable is Godliness along oil these lines ! "There's nothing like mornlity to raise the pi ice of properly in a city , Lot it go out that l.OOJ or 'J,0)0 ( ) people have been converted and it would bo the best adver tisement Omaha could have. This re vival is bolter than ti police force patrol ling the streets. I believe if wo had 2,000 conversions in Omaha crime would bu vastly diminished , and it would be the grandest possible thing for the city. " The speaker made an urgent appeal to the audience to place themselvo on the sidu of Godliness , "Thi'ia's a sti.iiigiir at the door. Lot hiaa In. " was then sung by a quartette , and at the conclusion of the song all ( ho Christians in the audience were requested to rise to their feot. This , together with the invi tation for those who wanted to become. Christians to stand up brought nearly three-fourths of the audioncu from their chairs , A scene of excitement then pre vailed as the beukens after God made pro fession of thuir faith in God. J'coplo came forwaid with tears in thuir eyes ami ropwitunco in their hearts. The brethren descended from the platform and labored with the converts with grtrnl success , All joined in singing the doxology , and the most BiicceMiiil meet ing of the series was dismissed with a benediction , _ Lots on Georgia avenue , between Lcav- cnworth and Furnnm streets will he fcoarco at $8,000 , each before fall , You can buy one now of 0 , 13 , Muyno for $1,800 on easy terms. _ A. oTUTwr OAKi.ANii.Neb.
