T IS TO UK regretted very much tlmt
our streets wcro in such liorrlblo condl
Hon during tho visit of tlio state drug
gists this week. Not content with this
the heavens seemed to shod their tears to
mnko even that liorrlblo state of things
won. However, I feel confident that our
friendly visitors appreciate tho circumstances
and know that when n city's streets nro
torn up preparatory to paving, thoy cannot
make n very udtnirablo nppenrance. How
over, ladies and gentlemen, when you visit
us again, we will mako amends for tho pant
by driving you in our finest vehicles over
Lincoln's paved thoroughfares.
Many of our renders have doubtless been
shocked at tho cruclul point of u theatrical
porfonimuce by the fainting of soma one in tho
audience; but if wo nro to behove the follow

trick, of tho trado. Tlmt it has Wen succcssf ul
in Inducing patronage goes without saying,
but hereafter wo can regard such scenes with
the stolidness that betokens tho blast Man,

I am pleased to announce tho arrival of
our esteemed friond, Mr. Jacob Mahler, who
arrived Wednesday accompanied by his cstl
mablo lady and llttlo daughter, Rosalind, and
nro now quartered at tho Windsor hotel.
Mr. Mahler has Kt'ii welcomed back by his
legion of friends, and I might say that tho
warm welcome tendered him by everyone was
not ono that welcomes n business or profes
sional man, but tho hearty welcome that is
accorded a friend, for of such Mr. Mahler
has legions in Lincoln. From the prospect
it appeals now that his success this season
will even exceed that "of last year, und of
course this is an encouraging outlook. Many
former scholars that tho professor had thought
would not attend the fourth year havo np
plied nmong the first. I am pleased to note
this, unit Iiojkj Mr. Mahler will- nJoy his
limited season's sojourn In Lincoln as he has
heretofore. As for the Observer and the
CouniKii, their best wishes are hereby ex
tended. Mr. Mahler hays there will HsItlvely
le only this term.
Spcuklngof the Alma wreck yesterday Mr.
A. S. ltuymuud, of Raymond Brothers, in
formed the Observer that a letter had been
received from one of their men on the road
conveying tho nous that whilo near tho scene
of the recent wreck at Alum, on tho II. & MM
ho (toe traveling man) learned that nine of
the victims had died, including those found
in the stream, and expressed much surprise at
not seeing the news in the dally jiapers.
These, together with tho death of Charley
Eaton yesterday, mako ten deaths caused by
tho disaster. It does seem strange that nearly
all news regarding tlieso deaths have not
been chronicled in the entorprislng (f) dolly
papers, but money is a great power these days
with the press, and pcrha.s if less of it wero
used with such papers as our morning sheet,
Its readers would get more news and hear
more about wrecks and other railroad news
on tho Ilurlington than Is now suppressed ; hut
us it is generally known that the Journal is
owned (In a sense) by tho 11. & M.,lts readers
havo ceased to look for facts in tho case of
railroad accidents, etc. It is also quite puz
zling to know just why tho Kttcninii Democrat
has changed its mission in regurd to tho rail,
roads. Baverol months ago it was giving the
railroads fits, but siucelfchortly before tho In
ceptlonof tho strike It has turned completely
and In yesterday's edition It oven went so far
us to assert that I'rovldence, and not the H. &
M. was to blame for the Alma accident. Per
haps tho Democrat' polo was long enough to
knock the crsmmon, hence the change In
tune. Hut is this so nbout the fatal results of

Our Washington correspondent writes about
tho ladles as follows: The Ladle Cycle Club
admitted eight now members nt their last
meeting, and have several applications. Their
limit will soon lie ronched. Tills club is com
tsxsiof sotno of tho Ust eople In tho city.
They aro enthusiastic and will rido for the
benefit and pleasure which the sport afford
ed. They have organized their club to tho
purpose of encounigcing Indies to rldo; nnd
desire to nvoid everything which approaches
thoconsplcious; for Instance, one of their
rules provides that they will not rldo In lino
or nppear in pirado of any kind. Tho ladies
will with few exceptions, rldo tho now Indies
bicycle, which is manufactured hero. This
machine is a great invention, nnd Is an un
doubted success lu every respect. I hnd my
doubts nbout it at first, but since I have
seen It used tioth on tho road and In tho
city by ladles who never oven rode tricycles
my suspicions havo Ih-oii removed and I do
not hesitate to pronounce it the most or
fect cyclo ever Invented for Indies use. They
nro becoming quite common here, as the

On tho right is Charing Cross station nnd
tho (I rand Hotel forming tho entrance with
handsome gnto entrances to a court, from
which tho hotel Is entered. In tho centroof
the court stands n monamont ot elaborate
stone work a copy by the lato K. M. Harry,
II. A., of n cross originally erected t tho
memory ot (Juoen (liieanor m the centre or
tho ancient vlllnge of Charing.
Wo found tho hotel very convonlont as"
as nearly nil tho railroads from London con
nect with this station. Only one square east
is Craven street, nearly every house In which
offers private lodgings nt moderate prices,
for strnugers In London. Nenrly opposite our
lodgings nt No. 7 Craven street, lived lu 1771,
Dr. Ilenjamiu Franklin, while representing
lu England the Interest of the American col
onists. Iu front of tho Golden Cross Hotel In tho
Strand, once a well known hostelry and placo
of deiinrturo for mall conches, Mr. Pickwick
is doscritiexl as having lieeu assailed by tho
hackney-coachman, nnd to have lieou thcre

graced tho Strand, hnd been tho residence ot
the ancestors ot tho Dukes of Northumber

known Strand front, surmounted by n lion,

WiOtj. Thus, one by one, the old palaces of
the nobility nrc giving place to tho demands
of traffic and the advanced civillzntion of tho
age, nnd gradually nil these privileged classes
must disappear boforo the growth of liberal
principles, wherein personal merit and the
right of man will ulono bo regarded.
WosHnt an howr in Lowther Arcade,
Strand, strolling through its twenty-live
shops for toys, and making n few .purchases
for our juvenile friends in America, It Is
named after Ixird Lowther, a former chief
commissioner of woods nnd forests, whoso
residence was here. Nearly opjioslte, on tho
south side, was tho residence of the Dukes of
llucklugham, originally formed u part of
York house, win :h afterwards liccamw tho

David (Inrrlck died at No. ft, Adolphi Ter

. This wns also the site of Durham house, the
scene of the marriage of Uidy Jane drey, and
of her arrest and removal to tho Tower. Dur
ham house in Henry VIII.'s reign became a
royal palace; but subsequently (jueou Eliza

Auliery describes ltalelgh's study to havo

that looked Into and over thu Thames, and
had the prosiect which is as pleasant tier-
haps ns any lu the world and which not only
refreshes tho eyesight but cheers the spirit
and (to speuk my mind) I believe enlarges
an ingenious man's thoughts." It must havo
been an Ignorimi mid a brutal ago that could
consign a man of such brilliancy to a cell in
the tower, und after twelve long years of suf
fering to Ihi Iwhended to gratify tho revenge
of a court.
We went Into tho White Tower, at that an
cient fortress culled thu Tower of London
erected for William thu Conqueror by Gun
dolph, lllshop of Rochester, noted for his
great architectural skill. The smallest apart
ment on the llrst lloor, culled Queen Eliza
beth's Armory, has a doorway connecting
with a cell, 10 leet by 8, butimllghtod except
from the door. Sir Walter Kalelgh was con
lined in these rooms for twelve years for con
spiracy in favor of Mary Arnliella Stuart,
and beguiled tho time as well us he could by
exeriments in chemistry and writing his
celebrated "History of tho World."
