A few months ago there appeared, all at once, very many unsigned pieces of paper money of the lower denomina tions, bearing the words, "The Treas urer of the City of Lincoln Pay the Bearer," etc. Some bills of the kind, however, were signed, as a few unsus pecting people found out. Various stories are told about these bills, but the following version is given to me by E. E. Brown, of the Columbia Nat ional bank, who was Mayor of the City at the time the bills were printed. It was a fad at the time, in all sorts of business, to advertise by issuing bills somewhat resembling notes, with the name of a firm upon them, or by Is suing coins of various design. This Is how it came that during the year 1872, while Mayor Brown was absent from the city In the east somewhere, I be lieve the finance committee of the city counci...

The "War of Wealth" the play, was but a coarse presentiment of ex periences which the people here went through on that fateful day In January three years ago, and which they again went through this week. The real thing as we have seen It this week. Is no melodrama. It Is tragedy with heart burnings filling the Interstices. Life is made up of many emotions and in cidents; but to us in this material part of the most material nation, business affairs take hold of a large share of our best abilities and fondest hopes, and when a crisis comes, when confidence and credit make simultaneous retreat and chaos failure overtakes effort, then there is tragedy. There is tragedy lri fighting against fearful odds and losing. There is tragedy in braving the fury of the storm and holding the bridge against an army.

THE COURIER. ANNOUNCEMENTS. The actor of today would attain a high' and permanent place in bis calling, must come nearer to truth and to nature than his predecessors upon the stage. The latter part of this nineteenth cen tury is moving toward that realism which seeks to achieve the illusions of art by consistency and naturalness, appealing to a practical, intelligent mind. Among the foremost artists who are fighting the battle against vulgar comedy, artificial tragedy and absurd melodrama, is Mr. Clay Clement, the distinguished young actor, who made such a pronounced success here last season as Baron Hohenstauffen in "The New Dominion. It is difficult to define Mr. Clement as an actor. He shculd certainly be classed as a co median after recalling some of his de ightfully humorous acting as Baron Hohenstauffen, in "The NewDominion.

Miss Helen Hoagland Is perhaps the most striking in appearance and the most stylish. She Is nearly six feet tall, has eyes like diamonds, dances well and above all, sings like like a bird. Her father is one of the lumber barons. Her mother is well known for her many charities, good deeds and innumerable friends. The Hoagland house Is one of the most hospitable in town. Miss Louise Squires Is the liveliest of the buds. The dances are all too short for her or for anyone dancing with her. Her claims to favor are based on her winning manners and unselfish regard for all her friends.
