agines. It In casually rcnmrkail nbotit tow n Hint n
number of young men of this city will organ
Iio thoinsolvos Into a minstrel company mid
go on tho road tho coming season, nnd I nm
told that n certain gentleman who foriuarlly
was a wholosulo inorchnnt will preside ns ono
of tho end men, nnd with n gentleman con
nected with oun of the theatres will put tho
show on tho road and manage it.
Tho other day when nt Cincinnati I met n
gentleman from Springfield, Ohio, w ho ngree
ably surprised mo with tho nous Mint Lincoln
now posossod n talented nnd clopueut Shakos
peorlan reader in the person of Airs. W. S.
Huffman. "Why," said tho gentleman, "at
homo Mrs. Huffman was nlwnys sought for
and it was seldom that n lino e cnt took place
but what tho lady was honnl. AVo consider
ed her tho best in Ohio, nnd I nm sure you
would enjoy hearing her recite." Tho Ob
server was pleased to learn nil this ami trusts
that during tho coming hcason wo may have
the pleasure of hearing her quite frequently.
Thoro is a long, loud kick going on among
tho business men ot O street where tho street
is in such deplorable condition. It seems
thnt nil tho paving contractors wont is to
tear up the streets, grndo thorn nnd then let
the vehicles go through tho best they enn In
tho slush nnd mud. Fnrtlculaily nro the
merchants on O between Eleventh nnd Thir
teenth anxious to have the work proceed, so
it may lie completed lieforo tho oenlng of
tho stnto fair, nnd it has been suggested that
a petition bo circulated in tho vicinity named
asking tho council to wake up in the matter
and push things a little.
Cortnlnly tho present condition of O street
east of Twelfth Is deplorable nnd should lio
remedied. Street car service on the rapid
transit and O street lines is brokou. Ditches
nnd holes in most every part of tho Btreet
mnko it dnngorous for teams, and to say tho
least, thoroughly uncomfortable for tho rider.
Tho stnto fair U near us and wo must hao
tho streets In good condition by nil means.
Last year's strocts were a disgrace to tho city
and I sincerely hope Lincoln will show ierself
to better advantage this fall. Tniowehave
several miles of nicely iwvcd streets, but Jii9t
now several of tho most prominent thorough
fares are in tho worst condition. Fix tip

The Mayor Assaulted.
Mayor Sawyer was made the victim of an
unprovoked assault Monday evening nt tho
corner of Tenth nnd F streets by ono J. H.
Porter. Tho assailant had been an nppllcni.t
for a position on tho jkiIIco force, and hod
been refused because of the hard uaiiio ho

and for a long time wasasulfercr from white
swelling, his illness being such ns to necessi
tate tho use of crutches for ten J ears. Foi ter
is a tall, muscular Individual, ami tho mayor
was but a child in his hands. Mr. Sawjer
suffered novoro liijui lis about the face, back
nnd limbs, mid has been lying In a critical
condition over since. Several times it was
rumored that tho injuries would result fatally
but happily that is not feared.
Mr. Sawyer's courso during hU tviui of
ofllco has been such as to call down upon him
the malice of tho evil-doers with which tho
city Is infested, nnd this assault by ono of
their number should meet with severe punish
ment. An Important Klniiient
Of tho success of Hood's Snrsainrlltu Is the
fact that every purchaser receives a fair
equivalent for his money. The faniiliurliend
line "100 Doses One Dollar," stolen by imita
tors, Is oi Iglnal w 1th and truo only of Hood's
Sarsauurlllii. This can easily lo proven by
any one who desiies to tost tho matter. For
real economy, buy only Hood's Sainaparllla.

Duiimn, Ireland, July oth, 1888.
It Is dllllcult to find time for letter on n
sight seeing trip, but I will try, however, to
fulfill my premise. On July second wo came
In sight of tho const of Kerry, Ireland, and
soon after uvwcd tho Fastuet light, where the
ship signalled and her an ival wns cabled to
Now York nnd o'sowhetv. The weather wns
what nn Englishman would call "lently"
and the son rough; tho Inst day tielug the
worst of the voyage. We found smoother
water as wo came near the QuneiisUiwii luti
hr which Is said to lie one of tho finest on
the British const. The Irish const nt Hint
sight looks ban en nnd forbidding, but on
landing we Hud venture mid foliage In abun
dance. From tho transfer lioat we go to the station
wheto wo are con ailed by Her Mnjiwty's
custom ollleors and usked to open tipour bag
gago, which we do promptly. The olllclnl
wlio began excavating Into my "grip" en
countered nothing but mi accumulation of
soiled linen and gave It up ill disgust. I wns
then solemnly asked If I had firearms or
spirits nnd tobacco, more thr.u the law allow
ed, nnd on replying In the negative was allow
ed to pass. Ono passenger having a pistol
was obliged to loavo it in the hands of tho
After trying our "sea legs" n little nliout
tho lioautiful ipinys we took the first train for
tho city of Cork, sixteen miles distant, where
wo arrived In time to walk uliout ii little and
attract the nttentlou of the natives, who
everywhere sK)t tisntoncons Yankees, nnd
while we are observing what appears odd and
quaint in the surroundings, and their speech
nnd milliners, I think we npMinr Just as ludi
crous to them. In fact, I caught the hotel
porter laughing nt me when I was puzzling
over shillings nud pence In trying to count
my change. We look around the city nnd
find It much larger than we expected nnd
many costly nnd elegant buildings, both an
cient nnd modsrii. From here tourists go
out about eight miles to the villngeof Blarney
nnd Blnrnoy castle; its history you doubtlcs
know liettcr than I do. The celebrated blar
ney stone, ns shown to visitors, Is nt tho sum
mit of tho ruin, nnd is the lower stone of n
piojectlpg portion of tho outer wull. It Is a
dlzry hightli up there and I hurried back,
down the spiral stone stall case which seemed
to me n triumph of architectural skill, nl
though tough in iliilsh,and worn by countless
footsteps forcentuilos.
On the route from Cork to Dublin at Mal
low, a thriving town, wo change cars for a
visit to Klllainoy, n point much frequented
by tourists. On the way we ate on tho look
out for ancient ruins. I caught sight of n
dilapidated structure not far from the road
side w hlch I thought liore the marks of an
tiquity, and hurrldly called the Attention of
tho party to It; hut my illusion wus dispelled
by a native fellow-jtassonger who replied to
my Inqufiy, in a bioguo more gutteral than
tho average, "YIs, it's mi old lime kiln."
After thut I was rather sensitive nud skepti
cal ulMHitold ruins, mid waited for others of
tho party to discover und Identify them.
Atiivlug nt Killainey no found It to lie n
haudsomo town with picturesque, surround
ings. In the early morning no mounted n
wagounetto for a drivo to the Gan of Dunloe,
some eight miles distant. Tho air wus ex
hlleiating. tho scenery beautiful If not suls
lime, the roads smooth und w ell macadamized,
as evry where in Ireland. Ah wo leavo the
town tho count i y is fertile and piodtictivo,
but as wo approach tho mountain pass there
are only patches of tillable soil. Along tho
roadside is tho usual stono fence or what ap
pears to ben ridge of earth with hedge glow
lug on its top. The fields nre fenced in the
satno way. Tho hoy harvest Is In progress
and the air is tilled with the odors of new
mown hay nud the innumerable wild (lowers
that dot the fields nud hedges. The chief
ngilcultutnl products and industries so far ns
I hnvu observed seem to bo hay, stock mid
dallying. It is mm ket duy in Kllhirney mid
we are met by numerous small lieids of sheep
and tho small Keny cattle; sometimes twoor
threo sheep would lie seen in a donkey cm t,
one of them diivoii by a lioy contained n
slnglo sheep held by a littlo gill, noth stand
ing In the cart. The Bhoop was a U-autlful,
meek eyed creature, a household pet no doubt,
but must Ikj sold to iy tho rent. The sight
wos a pretty nnd pathetic one. Tho donkey
is a feature of Ireland, and with his clumsy
little cart, patitmtly bears his part of the bur
dens of the Irish tenantry
Some of us alighted nud looked into n
thatched cottage by the roadside and weie
conuniiy to enter ny an old man
whose jiollto nnd almost couitly manner and
speech seemed not in keeping with his sur
roundings. Wo found ono or the cows tethei -ed
to tho leg of the table in the principal
room of tho house. The floor wns paved with
pebbles; fire smouldored on the hearth, over
w hlch hung the pot hook, nnd tho kettle stood
near tho cow. We weie nsked to drink milk,
but in viow of tin surroundings declined.
As we nemed the cud of our trip u man
rodo swiftly nfter us und soon others joined
him: a woman nnd then n joung girl came
Into tho road, barefoot and bareheaded, ami
followed us and soon we hail uu escort of
half a-dozen of men, women nud Iniys run
nlngnftor us, riding alongside, nnd holding
on t tho end of our wagon. We soon found
out their object They offered their sei v ici s
in various capacities. The woman, who
claimed to tie a decendnnt of the Uolleen
llawn. had her photos and conrso home knit
socks to sell us. Tho men skillfully waked
tho echoes botw ecu tho hills by means of shout
Ing und tiring small camion, and ns it wns

Just returned gives u resume of the trip fiom
Philadelphia to Lincoln, describing a very
attractive trip, which It will bo well for our
renders contemplating u similar trip to make
n note of,
Philadelphia Is noted for Its many elegant
structures, Its enlei prlso and the cleanliness
of ever) tiling lu und nlsiut the city. It Is
nlso noted for It several very elegnnt nud
costly railway stations, pi eminent nmoii
them Isilng the very handsome new deHit of
the Baltlmme& Ohio railway which hut re
cently opened its line Into this city. This
structure which Is locntisl In one of tho finest
portions of Philadelphia Is built on the very
lotfst style of nahllis-ture nnd Is n spacious
station having nil the modern Improvements
nud facilities for conveniently handling nn
Immense buslneKH. All tho Mulshing ale of
the very finest, the art gloss used lu windows
nud aUiut the place lHtiug the mint eiieusive

apartments, such ns lodlof toilet rooms wl'h
coin toons attendants, rcficshmout looms,
waiting rooms with novel apNiliitments und
Hue furnishings, gentlemen's smoking roo ns,
teh graph olllces, n place where pal eels may
lie left, n lefieshmeut nud news stand, etc ,
nre ell found lu convenient locations fu the
huge building. It Is u model inllwuy struc
ture nnd Is certainly u ci edit to the (,luaker
city ns well ns the picturesque Baltimore &
HK"oklngof the "Picturesque B fc O." re
minds me of the man) pleasant Inelih nts
noticed along the lino nnd It struck me more
thnn once that n more appropriate name
would be hold to Hud. We leave Philadel
phia nt 11 () lu the morning and from the
time the wheels first turn until the end of our
Join ney much to interest the mind nud at
tract tho eye Is enjoyed. Within two hours
after leaving we have hod a I Ida In time

shortly nfter leaving Philadelphia and arrive
In Wilmington ut u little lieforo twelve und
Baltimore shortly nfter one o'i lock, arriving

This line Is certainly a most pleasant ono,
