What llo Sees, 1 1 nun, Think mill iiKlncs. Im- 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 ing from Fred Nye's fountain, this is merely a 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, Miss Faunlo Bliss, a member of Hobort Man. tell's, "Monbars" compnny, is lying ill at tho Duiker hotel with malaria. Bheisn woman perhaps 40 years of ago and not unprciosess ing. Her part In tho play was to got n con tplcuotis seat among tho audience and faint hysterically away when Monbars burnod tho red grcoHo oft his arm in tho dog scono. She inform us that kho fainted eighteen times during tho Chicago engagement, and was dragged out every time. She says she has done fnr more to render "Monbars" popular and to ndvertlso it than any other nicinWr of the company, and sbo fears tho lady who has been selected as her substitute will not play tho part up to its possibilities. Miss Illiss lias a cousin who does a similar fainting net for Mansfield in tho play of "Dr. Jekylt and Mr. Hyde". 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 tho wreck ( Why is there nothing done in tho matter i Or is everything running smoothly i League Meeting, Tho meeting of the Irish National league Sunday wns it very spirited one, tho princi pal toplo Itelng tho consideration ot the ro script of Popo I.i which has caused a great commotion all over the world. Hon. I'. O'Cassidy, as orator of tho day. made n very eloquent address touching ukjii tho genealogy of tho Irish race, Its arts of war and iioaee, paying his resiiects also to tho present gov eminent of the Emerald Isle. A letter was read from Hon. John Fitzger ald, ut tho time absent In Chicago, expressing his views an tho papal pronunelumonto. A series of resolutions referring to tlds subject wos then Introduced by Mr. Button, from which wo take tho following excerpt, as indicative of the fooling of tho league in this matter: lie fid vol, That us the league Is composed of men of all creeds, it In not within Its prov ince to discuss religious iiuestlons, hut as Irishmen, devoted to the ciiusoof Irish free dom wo deny the lightol'uny authority what soever outside of the duly elected representa tives of tho Irish people to Interfere with the political movements of tho Irish nation, and we especially deprecate tho Interference of the Hoinuii court In tho political contest now being carried on ly the people of Ireland ugulust a forclKii government and Its land lord garrison In our long suH'orlng and un happy motherhood, Tho reiolutions wero unanimously adopted and after tho reading of several extracts from Dublin nowspajiers, and from cablegrams of J'arnell and Dillon by Mr. Patrick F.gun, and tho adoption of a resolution of sympathy to spoctlng the Into Dr. O'Sheo, tho meeting ndjourncd. 1'.

An effort will o nmdo to organlro a Cycle Club lu Lincoln, and as them ara now nUmt fifty riders In tho city, it would mmmi that qulto a strontf organization might Iks nmdo. Much rain makoth tho cycling record seeker sad. For the iast few days wo havo had rain and rain, and then some moro rain, but with all bicycling may still be seen and every bright day moro of them turn out, Mr. Addis, Lincoln agent for the Columbias has n complctolluo of snmplo machines of that mnko nt 81.11 O street, among them is tho Velos Columbia, thoj rear driving snfoty that is nt present creating such a sensation In wheeling centers. Any ono thinking of buy ing n wins? 1 would do well to see tho Columbia boforo placing their order. 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 companys school. Machines nro lu constant use upon the street. A Question of Taste.

THE CURIOUS SIGHTS OF LONDON. Northumberland House, Convent Harden. The l'.Ryptlan Obelisks, I Written for tho Coi'lili'.u.l ff9TANl)IN( with Nelson's monument nt ono's Isick nnd looking down tho Strand, somo of tho most notnblo build- I lugs nro in sight, built upon tho sites of tho former buildings that havo been removed, iwssosslng in themselves great hlitorlo Inter est. Wo will note a fow of these. 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 tion taken under the protection of Mr. Jin gle. Northumbrian'! Hon-, the last of tho many old palaces of the nobility, which once graced tho Strand, hnd been tho residence ot the ancestors ot tho Dukes of Northumber land for two centuries nnd n half; its well known Strand front, surmounted by n lion, tho crest of tho Percys, dated from nlout 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 homo of Lord llacon, Peter tho Oreat lodged nt No. 15 llucklugham street, Strand. Hero also onco lived Ueorgu Villiors, Duke of Duck-, Ingham, Who lu the course of one revolving moon, Was chemist, llddler, statesman an hullooii. Turning down Adams street from 'tho Strand we find -ourselves upon n haudsoiuo terrace overlooking the embankment and the Thames. David (Inrrlck died at No. ft, Adolphi Ter race, where Foote remembered him in early life, attempting to earn his living, "with three quarts of vinegar in tho .cellar, calling himself a wine merchant," Tho grandfather of (larriek was a Huguenot reiugeo named (hirrique, who fled to England from Iior deuux in lf&V . 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 beth gave it to various ersous who Impell ed to be in royal favor. When Sir Walter Kalelgh was a favorite visitor at tho court of Elizalieth she licstowcd It iim)ii him. Auliery describes ltalelgh's study to havo ls-eu "on n little turret (In this old palace) 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." Returning to the Strand and taking an omnibus, an intelligent driver will olnt out many notable edifices. You are now on tho way to the Hank of England, the Mansion House' tho Royal Ex change, Exeter Hull, a square from the Ly ceum theatre, and only a few squares further to thu left Is the Royal Italian Oiiera, Con vent Garden, Wo must not puss by Convent Garden without u word. It was formerly a monas tery with extensive grounds, but was confis cated und devoted to other puriKises. It has been the scene of many notable Incidents lu English history. It once embraced the entire syacu from St. Martln's-iii-the-Kields to Long Acre. In HUM Inlgo Jones built for tho then Eurl of Bedford tho church of St. Paul's, I Convent (iardeii, which, excepting tho pros- J cut portico, was totally burned in 1713. Thu present cdlllce was erected by John Hunl wlck upon tho same plan and proositlou.s as the orlgiuul. In and around it was burled J Samuel Hutler, tho author of Hudlbrus, . Of all his gains by verso ho could not save Enough to purchase llaunel und u gruv.i. It contains thu tombs of many of England's , great men. ! Tho famous Convent Garden market house wus built in l&'IO. Thu market is well worth n visit. To wsj t at its busiest time ono must go ourry,l)oforo six o'clock on Tuesday ,Thurs. day und Sat unlay. Thu middle division Is ut all times tho most interesting sight. We saw hero thu finest prints und Honors that skill cun produce or money buy. The old song gives good advice to stran- gers, trover you go to London town Just tuku a peep at foment tlurdvii. Before leaving tlio Thames embankment we must not omit to mmk of the Egyptian ' oliclUk, which Is tho most conspicuous objocL It Is seventy fist high and eight feet wide nt tho iwiso, weighs '.'(K) tons nnd Is formed (if granite. It was presented by Mahomed All to tho British government, but for years lay unclaimed In tho sand at Alexandria, nlong with a similar monolith sinco removed to thn Unltwl Btntei nt tho exiH'iiso of Mr. W. II, Vnudcrbilt, nnd erected In Central nrk,Nuw York. This obelisk Is n twin to tho one In London. Such obelisks wcro usually placed In pairs outsldo of Egyptian temples. The cost nnd dllllciilty ot removal to England wore surmounted lu 1878, the former by thu munificence of tho Into Sir Erasmus Wilson, who gave (Myxx) for tho punxmo, tho Intter by theskill ot Mr. Dixon, C. K. This huge block of granite, nfter being lift ed nnd placed In tho cylinder Iwtrgo In which it was to bo llontcd to England, hail a most tempestuous voynge. The steamer which towed tho obelisk escnKsl destruction only by cutting it adrift lu tko Hay of Biscay, nnd for days nothing was to bo heard of it. At length n (sisslng vessol picked up tho strnngo looking object, n veritable iiion(nim, hor rutiifum, informt, fiifus. It wns finally land ed on the banks of tho Thames. The engineer who removed tho Vanderbllt olsilik;dovlsod njdlffereiit modu of transporta tion. An opening wns mndo In tho stern of a vessel nnd tho great shaft ot granite rolled In, the opening closed and nil safely brought over tho Atlnntlcjand as easily removed to Con trol pnrk. Wo aro not nwaro that tho Inscription on this olielisk havo been deciphered, hut tho scenes on tho IiOndon slinft aro well under stood. Tho Inscriptions on tho pyramldiou represent tho monarch Thothmus III., undor tho form of n sphynx with hands, offering wnter, wino, milk nnd Incense to tho gods, Rn and Atiim, the two principal deities of HoIlopoHs, the city of tho sun. Tho inscrip tions glvo tho names and titles of tho deities, tho titles of Thothmus III. nnd the statement ot ench of his soclnl gifts. Tho flue bronze sphinxes set up east nnd west of the Needle nt itabtso wore designed by nil Engllih archi tect, ns wero also thu winged supKirts nt ench corner of tho obelisk. Tho beautiful gardens nenr by make this art of London a very pleasant promenade. The statue of Robert Rnikes, tho founder of Sunday schools, is a prominent object in tho garden, nnd was sot up lu lbSO. Tho steamers on the Thames alt stoppisl at the landing at tho base of the embankment, and wo frequently took our departure from this iolnt In visiting places ot Interest on thu river. Bkima.
