What llu Sees, Ileum, Tliliiki itml lin hkIiics. t nm qulto surprised nt tlio manner in which my entwine! friond of Iho DeuwcrtU handles tho Observer, nnd It seems that In thlsciibo truth did hurt the brilliant quill driver. Howover, my friend, it wns entirely uniifevasiiry for such personalities, nsniy few remarks wero entirely w itli tlio Democrat, nnd not directed toils able editor, whom 1 think nllowcd his jkjii to run away before cool judg ment wut considered. Neither i'HK CouitlKii or tho Observer has any ilehlro to enter Into a lloVFinHT quarrel, nnd when reiimrkH re gurdlng tho Alma wrecks were made In this column lust week, nnd tlio course of the Democrat taken before and since the strike, they woro dimply to show facts, to express tho imbllu comment, why tho change in tlio DciiwchiVk course, and not to open an argu ment which, if tho evening eonteiniK)rary de sires to coutinuo, it may do so at its pleasure and toatnuso itself, not it.t readerM or the Ob- server. On tho dead walls of tho city I notice ad vertising innttcr calling rlio attention of the multitude to tho advantages nnd Inducements oirered by tlio great northwest, Portland, Oregon, uud tho country thorenlout. I am pleased to note that this celebrated part of (Judo Barn's domain is being introduced to tho nation, nnd know that by consistent en terprise and continued elTorts tho biggest boom over enjoyed nnywhero will bo wit nessed by the jieoplo of that now and glo rious quarter within tlio next fow years. It has everything i make n prosperous coni inon wealth, nnd there Is no reason w hy Its resources can not bo developed and material ized to tho beuellt of all comers. Iron, coal, timlier, agricultural pursuits, lino climntu, excellent trnusiMirtnllou facilities and every thing necessary to enrich mankind is there in abundance, and in order to settle up the country tho railroads nro offering sjioeinlly low rntes to prospectors and land seekers. Tho Omnhii and Lincoln milkmen at pres ent can now soliloquize over the situation of the water question. Kor n long time Omiiha has tried, and tried hard, to purify its muddy water, but with no entire successful result, and as ii consequence tho glass or milk after standing u few moments shows tho settling and gives tho milkman's auxiliary dead away, while the Lincoln milk denier is trying to solve tho problem of what sort of nryiirr to to uso in place of our salt water.

A N'olalile llnti'i-prlsc. Hut few of our jieoplo know what n largo concern we havo In Lincoln that makes tlio manufactory or trunks n business. Some fow years ago Dr. Dorris opened what was termed the Lincoln trunk factory, on Klovcuth street, near O, nnd from the start business wns good and u foundation for u sub stantial trade was lalU. Dr. Dorris not find ing siilllcleut time to devote to both his prac tice nnd this Important industry, nlmiit two years later sold tho trunk Interims to 0. A.

It is not generally known, but a fact nevertheless, that all trunks handled at their establishment, '.MS South Kl-venth street, ex cept the very finest goods, are made at homo and in their own factory, where u largo force of coniietent workmen tiro engaged In build ing all kinds of trunks, from tho cheap iwipor covcrcd trunk to the lietter qualities In can vas, jrlnc, leather uud other materials, with Mulshing from the ordinary to tho strongest made, 11 specialty Ijelng tho iiMiitifncturc of sample trunks uud cases of any size and di mensions. Just at this season of the year Is when tho demand for ladles' traveling trunks aro greatest, nud before going to tho mountains, lakes or seashore, It would lie advlsnblo to call at this establishment to see what they havo In stock, or If you havo any peculiar Idea of your own, anything you may suggest will be put into reality as desired. Altera tions and repairs aro neatly made 011 any nud nil kinds of trunks, sutchcls, etc., at reas onable prices.
