AN OJJSEK VERS THOUGHTS.
COMMENTS AND OPINIONS IN TYPE.
AVlmt Ho Hpcii, Hears, Thinks nnd Im
agine". While In Denver tlio other week tho Ob
server had tho pleasure of meeting Dave
Howe, tho jMimlnr mnnnger of Inst year's
Lincoln team. Ho wascnrouio to uonicn on
ft vlstt to Inn pnronts who llvo In that charm
ing llttlo town. Mr. Howobulloves that tho
Western association next year will (nclmhi
Lincoln mid Denver, mid thinks that Lincoln
licoplo should bestir themselves to secure
somo Rood plnyeis who vIIIhooii lie uvnllablo.
Itowo has been incapacitated tho past two
month from playing ball by sickness, but ho
possesses n long n m lnagcrlnl bond us over.
Lincoln should have. Irvso ball by nit menus
noxt year, tho jieoplo want it, mid tho Ob
server would llko to soo the lovers of tho
gnmo take somo action in tho ninttor.
I hour of n Rood Joko on tho Jolly party who
occupied tho tally ho coach nt tho fair grounds
ono day last week. While enjoying n de
lightful spin around tho track, ono of soveral
Lincoln young men In tliu nmpliitheatro sar
castically Inquired: "Why, who aro thoso
jieoplor A rural rooster i-tnudlng by ono
of thoso fellows who nro full of information
mid always eager 16 impart It replied,
"That's tho Salvation Army, Mr; thnt's tho
way they travel." It is needless to sny tho
remarks brought down tho house. I do not
know whether tho tally-ho jwrty has yet
heard this, but I would suggest tho next tlmo
they appear in public they should take projior
steps to leavo no similar impression on the
minds of tho jwoplo who Imvo not yet been
educated up to tliln fashionable fad.
Those of our citizens who Imvo not visited
tho capitol building in tho last six weeks will
bo surprised at tho improved oppearnnco it
presents. Tho domo on tho building is about
completed, and tho main building is being
placed In readiness for tho winter's needs.
Tho Improvements about tho grounds ndd
prently to tlicl. opcarunce. Handsome
driveways, tho foundations ror which are
laid somewhere near China, lend through
broad n venues of stately trees, while on overy
baud tho result of n skilled mid cultivated
tasto aro displayed. Uotli J mid Fifteenth
street will bo paved this fall, and everything
1 u readiness for tho proper impressment of
Lincoln's growth uon tho legislator, lobby
ists and others who will flock to tho capital
Among tho many haiidsmnj and now
stylo rigs now soon on tho streets of Lincoln,
tho ono driven by Mr. Will Wlttiimn, that
ardent admirer of all that is nobby in n turn
out, is by nil odds tho most attractive
and (litest of its kind in tho city. It is
a very pietty two-wheel viMiicle, and tho
horso n very stylish, largo animal liedecked
with a set of harness that Is tho envy of nil
who drive on tho same street with linn. It Is
inadoiipof tho bojt leather, tho trimmings
being tho most striking and artistic featuro
of tho rig, everything In metal being of
solid silver. Will Is a great connoiseur of lino
work, and tho harness Is another samplo of
tho goods turned out by Wlttman Bros.
Theso lovely moonlight nights nro lieing
enjoyed in many ways by tho young tcop!e.
A htroll through tho slunled walks of tho city,
a rldo through tho city on horseback, or a
drive by buggy comprise tho most attractive
belies of amusement for such occasions.
Messrs. E. H. And rti9 & Son tendered tho
members of tho Klks, Plaisunt Hour and

Tho Hiiiinoy Haggles,
Perhaps ono of tho most interesting of tho
exhibits at tho stoto fair wero tho numerous
buggy and enrriago displays, prominent
among which was that of tho deservedly jop
ulnr Henney Iluggy eomiKiny, who occupied
a lui go space Wfun & Horton's iwvillon
near Art hall. This factory which to
day turns out undoubtedly tho finest buggy
made in tho west, lias lccomo more in iopu
htr favor with tho advent of each season and
from what formerly was a small concern In
Kreeport, 111., an Immense concern has grown,
so that today that bustling city lays claim
and Justly too, of being tho homo of tho finest
buggies mode In tho western country, with a
capacity douhlo thatot two years ngo.
Tho buggy is known overy whero to tho car
riage triule, tho name, in Itself, being sulll
clent to recommend nud sell It. Each vehi
cle is iiiudo of supetlor material, nud tho best
of workmen nro employed; only thoso having
ample experieuco mid ability being entrusted
with tho work. They make buggies and car
riages in somo fifty styles, nud cneh onu is
i-ent out with ft full pledged guniiuitco of
what all that Is claimed for it.
Mr. W. Henney, of tho llrni was personally
In nttendanco during tho fair and met his
ninny friends and patrons at tho tiavlllon.
Mr. Henney is a rather young man for ono who
bus achieved such success In a largo Held, but
his genial and business like iimiinerH show
clearly how nml wherein his success has been.
Mr. J. A. Grusseup, Mr. Hennoy's nblo No
biubkft representative, wus, as ho al ways is,
Ills light bower during fair wewk and assisted
in tho showing of tho handsome exhibit to all
