"Darby O'OllI and the Good People," by
Hermlnle Templeton, seta forth the only
true account of the adventures of a daring
Tlpperary man named Darby O Gill among
the falrlea of 81eive-na-mon. They we-e
related by Jerry Murtaugh, a first cousia
of Darby's own mother and a reliable car
driver between Kilcuny and Balllnderg.
The fairies were known as "The Good Peo
ple," and for many generations they never
bothered any of Darby's kith or kin, but
finally for some "mysterious rayson th-y
soured on Darby and took the eldest of
his three foine pigs" whom he "admired
and rayspected." Nor were they satisfied
until they robbed poor Darby of all his
possessions. It was only by the most cun
ning strategy that Darby was able to re
cover his property, but he Anally did so.
To sdd to the trouble "his rlvlrence,"
Father Casstdy, did not believe In fairies,
even though they played all kinds of
pranks on him. But one night, in Darby's
cabin. Father Casstdy met Brian Con
nors, the king of the fairies, and the meet
ing resulted In the "conversion" of Fathur
Caesldy, "his rlvlrence" taking a bowl of
punch for "daycency's sake," while he
wondered what his flock would say to
sea him drinking punch "wld a little ould

The reason for the withholding of the
ppolntment of the Board of Review at
Monday night's council meeting leaked out
yesterday. Under the law the city trees-
rer Is directed to name one member and
the mayor the other. Both the treasurer
nd the mayor were ready, but, at the
solicitation of the democratic majority In
the council, the naming of the board was
cferred for one week. It appears that be
fore voting to confirm the appointees the
Jemocrattc majority wants soma conces-
ilons from the mayor. In the first place.
ihe democrats want Oeorge Dunscombe ap-
olnted street commissioner. Then they
want the mayor to employ a plumbing in
spector and a building inspector. For
early a year City Engineer Beal has at
tended to the duties of these three offices
besides looking after his own work, the
mayor making no appointments to these
acancles, for the reason that he la sav
ing the city money and the taxpayers are
getting Just as good if not better service
than under the old system.
In order to conform with the provisions
tt the law the board must be appointea
so as to be able to get down to work on
June 15, as only ten days Is allowed for
complaints to be heard and the equaliza
tion of the taxes.
Last year the valuation returned by City
Tax Commissioner J. J. Fltsgeraid was
114,091.206. It was firmly expected by the
majority of citiiens that the valuation this
year would reach 120,000.000. Neither the
mayor nor the councllmen will talk for
publication about the matter, but It Is ex
pected that a compromise will be effected
before Monday night
The Coal Situation.
As far as the packers are concerned the
coal situation Is practically unchanged. In
order to tlds over packers purchasing
agents are buying any 01a Kina 01 coai
that will burn to keep the plants in opera
tion. No coal was received here yester
day for the packers, but some shipments
are expected today or tomorrow. One of
the packers said that there Is coal in signt,
meaning that shipments are enroute, but
he did not know where the cars are being
held. Last night It was reported that
there was a big shipment being held at
Paclfio Junction and an effort was at once
made to f nd a way to get the cars to the
ards here. Railroad officials are doing all
they can to assist the packers In hurrying
forward coal and It looks now as if the
famine would be over by the end of the
week unless there Is a decided change for
the worse In the weather.
applying Southern Trade.
South Omaha packers are taking care of
the Kansas City trade and shipping pack
Ine- house products Into the territory
usually covered by the Kansas City pack
ers. This will continue until the packing
houses on the Kaw are In operation again.
No effort was made yesterday to send
dressed meats to Kansas City, as meats
are now being sent direct from Chicago to
the stricken city. On account of tba eloa-
Ina- down of the Kansas City and Bt
Louis packing houses the South Omaha
packers will be kept busy for some tlms
tn come surviving the southern traae.
Is expected that many packing house em
Dloves from Kansaa City will strike out
for South Omaha as soon as 'they can get
away and then the houses here will no
doubt be run to their fullest capacity in
order to supply ths demand for meats and
other products of the packing houses.
A committee composed of P. A. Wells,
James H. Bulla and Charles A. uunnam
haa been appointed by the Commercial
club directors to procure information and
statistics In connection with tha proposed
bond Issue. This committee will explain
In Its report Just why South Omaha Is in
need of a new high school building, wny
a eltv hall la neeaea ana wny wiw nn
of the city should be extended. The Idea
of the director of the club In appointing
this committee is to place the matter be'
fore the voters In the right light Some
work was done yesterday by the committee
and It hopes tha by Friday night It will
have a complete report ready to submit.
The meeting Friday night will be held at
the parlors of the South Omaha club
and a general Invitation Is extended to all
interested in the voting of bonds for im
provements at this time.
Charles Akofer Dead.
Charles Akofer died at his home.
Twenty-fourth and K streets, at ( o'clock
Tuesday afternoon. The deceased was one
of the pioneer residents of the Magic City.
During the greater part of his residence
here Mr. Akofer was engaged in the retail
meat business. For over a year he had
been ailing, but death came unexpectedly.
The deceased was a member of the local
lodge of Eagles and the Modern Brother
hood of America. The funeral will be held
under the auspices of the Modern Brother
hood. A special meeting of the Eagles has
hn called for this evening at A. O. H.
hall. 23H N street, for the purpose of tak
in soms action. Arrangements for ths
funeral will be announced later.
Only two members, Chairman Vanaant
and Secretary Bergquist of the Fire and
Police board, appeared at the council
chamber last night and after a moment's
conversation Chairman Vanaant announced
to those who had gathered to listen to the
proceedings that there would be no meet
ing. It is presumed that the at-sence of
Mr. Nolan from the city was the cause of
there being no meeting.
Representatives of the packers and the
labor unlona are still conferring. Yester
day the conference devoted its attention
to skilled labor, especially in the pork
butcher and the easing departments. The
best of feeling still prevails between the
representatives and it is expected that all
differences will be settled this week. Nei
ther the packers nor the labor representa
tives will give out the scales submitted.
This will not be done until the difficulty
is settled, and then the scale to be paid
will be announced.
Members of the city council are preparing
to nil vacancies on the Board of Registra
tion, which meets on June 20 for a revision
of the registration books. Every one who
desires to vote on the bond proposition
must be registered. In addition to filling
the vacancies on the board the council
will select the places for holding the regis
tration. Next Monday night the council
will make a report on both of these mat

VASELINE XO-OOD FOR HAIR,
Dandruff Germ Thrives la It, as Well

A well known Chicago hair specialist In
vited the Inter Ocean reporter to come
to his office and see, under a microscope.
how the germ that causes dandruff
thrives In vaseline. The specialist said
that all hair preparations containing
grease simply furnish food for the germs
and help to propagate them. The only
way to cure land ruff Is to destroy the
germs, and the only hair preparation that
will do that Is Newbro's Herplclde. "De
stroy the cause, you remove the effect.'
Without dandruff no felling hair, no bald

destroyer of the dandruff germ.
