Out of the quiescense and desuetude of a half de cade, during which the state fair and other lively and useful institutions de parted from us, there may yet come a compensating spirit of achievement. It is within the range of possibility that Lincoln may, in the near future, secure two or three enterprises that will more than offs...

S Vv5v5'BS59e5'S'S'S5'S S Following are boiuo notes of a Wyom ing camping party composed of Lincoln people: July 16 Our first sight of the cook is not encouraging. He is a short, freckled youth, with no chef's dignity in his step, no gleam of conscious power inhiseje. The mystery of the com bination of flour and baking powder into satisfaction is still a mystery to him. There may be such a thing as a humble cook. I never saw one. A cook knows ho knows that which will keep those who eat his masterpieces in their place. This man's humility is depressing when we consider that. he prepares for us our next forty meals. July 17 The day is cloudy and cool. After leaving Edgemont the road lies thus: A country of sand, sage-brush and cactus. Every afternoon for five months in the year the sun bakes this train. Today a pillar of cloud moves between the sun and us. I see none of the chosen p...

Wednesday is ladies day at the nata toriutn. Mrs. J. A. Conner, of Omaha, is visit ing in town. The Misses Love have returned to their home at Fremont after a stay at "Sunnyside." Rev. H. B. Burgess of St. Luke's is in the east. Judge Dundy, Mrs. Dundy, Mrs. Scipio Dundy and several other mem bers of the large and cheerful family connection have gone in a special cai to Wyoming. They have hunted in the Big (lorn mountains before and many is the bear skin that proves their brav ery. Mrs. Dundy jr., can shoot a rifle and hit a deer with her eyes open. And everybody knows how Judge Dundy can throw a bear and cut his throat. Many Lincoln people, the younger members of society in particular, have enjoyed driving out to the Baldwin farm, known as "Meadow Brook, five miles south of the city. The Baldwins have disp...

Flint has appeared in Lincoln several times and is well re msnibered. "Cbimmio Faddon" is only one of a great many literary and theatrical mani festations for which "the bowery" is responsible, tho most dreadful of which is, perhaps, the plays in tho class with "A Bowery Girl," which was the open ing attraction at Boyd's in Omaha and tho Lansing theatre this week. "A Bowery Girl" opened at Boyd's Sun day night and came to Lincoln for one performance Wednesday. "A Bowery Girl" was presented with the following cast: Ernest Halcombe H. A.

The nnxt inning big Mr. Dillon emerged from the smoke and .did his best, which isn't much, to pull the game out, but the Bucks batted him on the back and banged the ball on the noso and won out easy. Sizing up the -Jacksonville crowd from their playing and the way their franchise has been skipping around it strikes me that they have justly earned the title of 'Messrs. Nobody of, No where.' Wo point with pride and clean fingers to the fact that Lincoln has as gentle manly a set of ball players as any that ever won a pennant. Why is this thus? The main reason is that they play ball with their heads as well as with their hands and consequently do not have to resort to bullying tactics to win a game. Keep your eye on 'em.' Watch them play a game and if you are not satis fied wo will refund your money upon payment for this notice. The Ebrighte have had their pictures take...

The sun shines not; a gentle rain is falling, and the guests of Bay Point Hotel walk along the long veranda and wish aloud for some signs of clearing off. I am contented as it is, with pen in hand, writing idly; for at my sido she sits, writing too, to whom I know not; but we both use ink from tho same bottle. I might put aside my pen and allow her the sole use of the bottle of ink, but somehow I can't. I hope her letter will be a lorg one. I am sure I can write for sometime yet, though it be of nothing. I would give a cookey to know whether she is writing to a lady or a gentleman, but she has covered up the address of her letter so I can't see it. It's awfully provoking and I am very anxious to know. After all it may be to her brother and I wouldn't care if it was. I really hope it is. I would feel so much...

While a resident of this city he was a reguler theatre habitue, and his friends in society in Lincolu and Omaha remember his interest in amateur theatricals. Mr. St. John was a member of the Tuesday Evening club that flourished in Lincoln for a couple of seasons, and he took a leading part in the dramatic entertain, ments of the club. He also appeared in one or two performances given by society people in the local theatres. It will not therefore, be surprise to his friends to learn that he has Anally gone into the theatrical business. Mr. St. John gave up his position here a couple of years ago on account of ill health, and went out to his father's farm where he has since remained. He is now him self again. Ed Church, owner of the Griffith "Faust" company made Mr. St. John an offer to become treasu...

Lieutenant Pershing's successor as military instructor at the state univerei tp, was named this week. The new ap pointee is Captain John F. Guilfoyle, Ninth cavalry. The News stated that Captain Guil foyle is the first captain ever appointed commandent of cadets. This iB an error. It has been the custom to detail lieutenants for this class of detached work; but recently their custom has been departed from. Two captains were assigned to duty of this sort just recent ly, prior to the appointment in ques tion. In a city where officers of the regular army are vouchsafed to us in distress ingly limited quantities, the few that come to v are rendered particularly im portant. When a new officer is coming it is something to know somewhat of his personality and history. It is not at ail unlikely that certain young women in society are even now speculating aa to whether Captain Guilfoyle ia married or single. He ia married, and is some where between 35 and 40 yean of age. His regiment has bee...

The Bowery, from Chatham square to Houston street is the Broadway of this portion of New York, which is as distinct in its char acteristics of people and life from the rest of the great city as one can well imagine. The Bowery is one of the most pano ramic streets on earth, presenting ever changing scenes and types of character. One walking along the Bowery brushes elbows with every nationality and with every condition of life, from the thrifty aad well-to-do down to the poor, dilapi dated bum, who only wants "one cent to help pay for a two-cent lodging." In the daytime the Bowery is bustling with basiaess life and activity. After dark the aristocracy of trade and labor gives place to the democracy of misery, the night prowlers, the toughs o both sexes, the criaiiaal, the draakard, and the men dieaat Da...
