What In Heard, Soon, Learned unit Perti
nently HiiRRritoiI to tho Multltiiilr.
It may npixxir strnngo to koiiio of my lend
ers nnd thoy limy think I nm behind the times
in not giving publicity to certain soclnl dis
agreements nnd several (pilot llttlo sensations,
but ns herctoforo stated, tho Observer 1m not
on earth to show tlio dark side of llfo, to glvo
sensational nows or to mnko enemies of
friends. On tlio contrary It is my endeavor
to uphold society nnd build it up, inther thnii
tour it down. There tiro plenty of gossips
who stand rendy for tho latter soivleo And
nover permit u clinuio to go ly when they
ciui belittle or thimngu their neighbor whom
thoy term friend. It is not Itocmiso of want
of knowledge, of these tilings that I Imvo not
priutod sumo under this heud, but becuuso I
do not think a private or iwrsonul niralr Is In
Its proper place when linrndul lcforo tho nub-
Ho olthor In print or gossip. Misfortunes mu
certainly cmbnrusslng mid hard enough to
beni nt beta, nnd being strictly none of any
ono's business except tlio nlllictcd, tho press
that prlutH theso privuto romances does so
with ii vlow of making capital out of them nt
tho oxponso of tho unfortunates. Tho fact
that n man and wlfo ImVu hud n family tpinr-
rel is not for, mid should not conceit! out
siders, or that there was a scandal in such a
homo, is certainly deplouiblo in tlio ejus of
Ilia family circle, ultliout being compelled to
accept tho scrutiny of tho public enzo mid
' slanderous tongue of the gosslper who never
fails to exngcrnta every time tho tale is tolci.
If there is any virtue in such actions, I leally
fall to see it, ami as above stated I could tell
lots of v hat some pcoplo would call "startling
revolutions" but it is not hi my line uud 1
cheerfully leave it to that class of mongers
who delight in it and are really a disgiaco to
Reading n copy of tlio Chicago Hotel World
tho other day I noticed an ndvei tlscmout of
Mr. Ed 1'. Roggeil, mliio host ut tho Capital
Hotel, in which ho sets foith tho advantages
ol that hostelry und otters the furniture,
leaso and good w ill for sale. Duiiug n con
versation tlio Observer was Informed that tho
business did not suit Mr. Hoggeu uud that if
ho could sell out nt n lcasonublo pi ice, ho
would then cmbui k in other pursuits. Ho
lias had a number or otters from pi eminent
eastern hotel men and is now in corrcsoud-
enco with no loss than a dozen iierbonsreguid
lug tho sale, soveial of whom will come to
Lincoln within u few days to look over the
premises. Tho Capital is one of tho most
popular hotels in the wist, cujovs a large run
of patronage and as such will bo easily dis
posed of. Lincoln people will probably bo
surprised to hour this, but will bo plousod to
learn Unit after dlsjioslug of the liotol, tho
genial VA Roggeil will still bo one of Lincoln's
staunch citizens.
Ouo of tho strongest crlterions of tlio suo
cess of a book or u play, sajs Table 'lath; is
when fashion adopts one or moi e of tho pi oni
neut features. Mis. Durnott's chariuliig ie
utlon " Little Lord Kauntleioy" uuy,
therefore, be said to have reaped Its lull
measure, since tlio Fuunlleroy stylo of coiffi'r
has found fuvor with tho girls who have
suillcioutly luxui iuut hair to niiuiige it utter
the manner seen in tho pictures of tho ideal
boy. Iho huir which must have considerable
natural curl in it, must be cut to tho bhouldei s,
the trout is clipped to the ciown of the heud
and allowed to lull in loose rings over the
forehead. Many maidens who long to be In
fashion, ami w ho j et hesitute to sucrillce their
crowning glory to such an extent, are wear
ing un ingenious wig, di essed u la Fuuutlei oy,
which uu enteipiisiug hair dresor has ulruuiy
Speaking ot tho relative claims of the two
cities the other day, an Omaha gentleman
who was vistlng here said, "Lincoln is an
awful pretty plate. This is iny Hist visit
hero and I must admit 1 1 cully like it better
tluiu Omaha, but btfoio I cume down I wus
lod to believe that your city was only a vil
lage. It seeuis to, that most of tho Omahu
people that talk so unjustly about Lincoln,
are Uioo who huv e never been here nnd
simply talk from a joulous disposition and
what they have heard some one else say. It
is all w rong and I regret It very much, for
being such close nelghbsrf , the eople of both
tow ns should Ihj friendly, and more congen
ial." This seems to be about tho truo iuwurd
netvs of affairs. However tho lelutlons be
tween tho metropolis und tho capital city I
um pleased to note is Incoming moro friendly
as timo grows on.
A general kick is and has been made against
the music now being furnlshedat Fuuke'sand
there seeuis to lie good cause for it. It has
been noticablo at vaiious perfoi muutes of
late tliut owing to the oor uccompaiiiineut
various stage artists havo imsltlvoly refused
to sing their best selections, and have thus
been compelled to cut their respective )mrts.
It was on) v by Beciul request that Coriuuo
condescended to sing "Dear Hiart" Satuidny
night. Sho snug it Thursday evening but
would not answer an encore. Several who
attended Friday weio disappointed at not hear
ing the song and when asked tho reason Mrs'
Kimball, as stated In our last issue, raid it
was owing to the very poor orchestral music
However on request of u number of auditors
Carlnno sang "Dear Heart" on her next ap
pearance At Loavltt's )erformuiico tho
artists preferred to dunce without music
which they did, while at "Siberia" in places
where music greatly udds to tho piocv, the
orchestra mado a dismal lizzie of their iwirt,
thus rendering the climaxes far fiom being
what they ale with proper music, uud I could
cite many other similar instance. Manager
Mclleynold's Is receiving too good a (Nitron
age at his house to allow the orchestra to
mar the excellent entertainments that he is
furnishing the theater goers of Lincoln.
Good music between acts and during tho play
Is a great feature of an evenings enjoyment,
without which the entertainment Is virtually
a failure. If a remedy ran bo mado It would
lio highly appreciated by tho largo nudlauces
thnt have Iwcn attending tho Fimko nnd it li
to lw IioihsI that a speedy change for tho bet
ter will lie tlio result. I do not want It under
stood thnt tho present oichestrn should lie
"llred" or thot I feel onythlng but friendly
toward Its members, but to the contrary, If
thoj can give us tlio music that belongs to
such n house, nnd to accompany such enter
tainments it would lw gladly received, If not,
give n suffering public a change by installing
another orchestra.

Without Puscy and Lester in tho Corinno

another piano was sent for Tills howuvor is
a usual occiii rence and their mnnnger tells me
they very seldom moot uu oichtstru that can
play their music with less thou n thij's reher

They first got ihu key of the piano at tho
