AN OBSERVKUS THOUGHTS.
COMMENTS AND OPINIONS IN TYPE.
What Ho Horn, Hears, thinks nml lot-
An obstroporous Chliminnii created n little
ozcitcment thu other evening in n North
Ninth street Imrbor shop, wheto thu nrtist
nro nil gentlemen of color. John utepiwil In
to tlio shop, nml cooly seating himself in n
clmlr demanded n shave. Tlio burlier who
presided over Hint paitlcular clmlr niu thun
derstruck nt tlio Idea, of such n customer, and
Indignantly refused to perform the oterittlon.
John Insisted, ntid tlio dnrUuy, vv ho had heard
something of thu treatment of men of lib)
raeo who had hern refused tho delights of a
shave at tho hands of n wlilto but bor, sworo
ho would not shave n Chluuumu. ""ho Mon
golian eyed the African, nml contemptuously
inquired, in thu brat pigeon Kngllsh ho could
muster, if ho, tlio dm key, thought himself
liottor than n Chinaman. Tho Afi lean as
serting his profound belief in that statement,
n largo-sized wnr cloud appeared on tlio hori
zon, and things wore chnotlo for a time. Thu
dnrkoy grubbed his razor, tlio Chinaman n hay
rum bottle, but by a sol tlo of thu combined
force, John wits finally ejected. Tho nlfnir
was exciting while it lasted, and thu wind
still whistles through John's whiskers.
Thu Observer has watched w Ith consldcrr
able Intel ebt, the ndaneement of n nuuilivr
of our young men, and it is with no Ilttlo
amount of pleasure that I occaslonnlly have
thu honor to announce such steps token up
thu ladder of famu and fortune. Thu last nml
most important promotions recently mado is
that of Mr. Arthur IJ. Smith to thu position
of chief clerk of thu II, & M. general lesson-
gcr department nt Omaha. "A. II.," as ho
was generally called by his friends, has been
in tho employ of thu llurllngton for several
years, latterlv ns Hunt. Calvert s assistant,
In his now position ho assumes thu work for-
inci ly donu by Mr. Francis, thu recently np
polntcil general pnssenucr agent, nml as
Smith Is an energetic and tiersoverlng young
man, wo may expect to hear of his promotion
to assistant general passenger agent soon
Howover, such is thohopo of his friends In
Lincoln, all of whom wish him success.
