THE COURIER Mr. Potter lias a drawer full of letters from ambitious women, each one of whom is absolutely sure she is the exact counterpart of Trilby O'Farrall in face and figure. Moot of these letters do not make any reference to acting. One actress, who is quite prominont, says she is sure she is the ideal Trilby, all of her friends Bay that she looks and acts like Trilby, and bIio will make any sacrifice to get the part. In reality the actress may be about as much like Trilby as sho is like Fougere. Whet Mr. Palmer and Mr. Potter want is a woman who can act Trilby; the rest will be easy enough. Who the woman will be, as well as the date of the production of the play, is as yet undecided. If you wouder how the playing of Svengali ami the singing of 1'nlby will bo accomplished, an educated automatic piano and a profesiional singer in the wing, who will really do the singing, while Tiilby only makes the motions with her lips, will show how easy it is to overcome such little obstacle...

At the meeting of tho Western association in Des Moines last week Sioux City and Rock Island were turned down. The circuit will 1)0 made- up of tho following cities: Lincoln, Omaha, Des Moines, St. Joe, Peoria, Jacksonville, Quincy and Rockford. The best piece of work was done in ousting Dave Rowo from Ike presidency and electing W. W. Kent of Jacksonville to tako his place. The base ball fans can thank Mr. T. J. Hickoy for knocking Rowe out. There are some people who think tho association made a mistake in drop ping Sioux City as the history of Sioux City will show that that city has never been a quitter in base wall. Iu drawing the uniforms Lincoln drew a grey suit with white trimmings; as no city has grey with black trimmings it is probable that Lincoln will change to black trimmings. t Archie Cole was in the city Sunday and is looking better than ho ever did and ho says he never felt so we...

- r. 'Z2 THE COURIER - I COMING ATTRACTIONS. The town is quite elated with the news that we are to have John L. Sullivan in a new play on the 10th of January at the Lansing theatre. Mr. Sullivan's latest venture, ami this time on his own ac count, is called "A Truo American,'' and is described as a romantic play with an interesting story unfolded without a tank, a railroad scene or even a shot being fired. It is a sincere effort at a legiti mate play, acted with a spirit and power, but doing away with rant ing and cheap straining for effects. The part of John Desmond id a gentleman, and Mr. Sullivan plays it as such. To those who have credited the absurd mannerisms some times attributed to Mr. Sulli van, his quiet force and easy manners will bo a surprise; he is rot without a certain dignity too, as he knows how to carry his stalwart figure, and to walk across the stage as though he belonged there. Bobby Mack's Irish fun is a good foil to John's seriousness, and his comical acting i...

THE COURIER it JJ ! , dfefftfff .fan. it Fifty four people and twenty tliree horses, to say nothing of wagons, scenery, etc, go to make up "A Country Circus,"' which was given at the Lansing theater Monday Fuesday. In point of numbers and cquip L it was the most formidable theatrica cuation that has visited Lincoln since Dave WW Henderson of Chicago brought his "Sinbad company heie, though it is needless to say these two attractions have nothing in common. "A Country Circus" as at present organ ized is too expensive an enterprise for the uncertain appreciation of "the road," as the management will probably find out before the season is ever. If "A Country Circus" is long on Shetland ponies and trained dogs and real circus performers, it is most decidedly short on actors and actresses. The first two acts which are a pre u la to the great parade and the circus performance, bear a close resemblance to the familiar melodramatic exploits of the "10, 20 and .TO" combin ations. They could ...

10 THE COURIER I A WICKED PLAY. "Rebellious Susan," Now Being Played in New York Has to be Defended. It was Heino who observed "that a blaspheming Frenchman is a more pleasing sight for the Divinity than a praying Englishman."' To the Lyceum theatre divinities there is no sight so pleasing, how over, as a praying Englishman. Even when ho is inclined to make merry after the fashion of his Gallic neighbors, they will tell you the man is praying, not esting. "We make Susan innocent of absolute guilt." This was the burden of an official communication issued by the Lyceum theatre divinities in the course of the week, according to the Now York Herald. As if the question had not been settled long ago, and by no less a person than the author himself! In a delightfully written preface to his comedy of "Rebellious Susan" why does not the LyceHin theatre management insert it in the programme? Henry Arthur Jones says: "I am aware that I have no warrant in the actual facts of the world around in...

tSSm THE COURIER 11 And when her aunt. Lady Darby opines that "men are men. and thoy are led away, and the rest of it," rebellious Lady Susan retorts: "Very well. I'm going to be indiscreet, and infatuated, and the rest of it.'' To her uncle, Sir Richard Kato, she remarks in tho same hysteri cal manner: "I want somebody to show me some waj of paying him back without without" "Without losing your place in society and your self respect. Ah, that's tho difficulty. There's an immense reputation to be mado as a moralist by any man who will show you ladies the way to break the Seventh Commandment without leaving any ill etrccts upon society." Thus tho wise Sir Richard, who has not been practicing a quarter or a century in the divorce court for nothing. A splendid pendant to Lady Sue is the picture of Sir Harabin, the unfaithful spouse, lie is truly contrite, confesses that he has been foolish and blackguardly. But that alone does not satisfy the irate wife. She wants some reason for his c...

l Ob. 10, No. 6. PRICE FIVE CENTS LINCOLN, NEB., SATURDAY, JANUARY 26. 1895. A STORY WITH A MORAL THERE was, once upon a time, a beautiful city, tho capital of a great territory. The people of this city were progress ive and active, and the city grew like a green bay tree. Enterprise and thrift went hand in hand, and all the people were happy. The city spread out in all directions, and its beauty and prosperity attracted not only thousands of people, but great institu tions. Soon, besides its great business interests, it had colleges and universities, without number, and it became famous through out the land as a seat of learning. But after awhile a change came over the people. Enterprise gradually gave way to a kind of mani pulation that promised much but achieved little. Half of the peo pie gave themselves largely or wholly over to politics, expecting to secure at one grab from the public treas ury, that which it would take years to obtain in legitimate business. The other half dr...
