Tlio llbornllty of Amcilrnti jicoplu In a well
known fact utiiong nil nations anil It must bo
admitted tlint t IiIh Inn reputation to Ik) proud
ot, but It Is tint cnuso of much sorrow anil
misery in many instances. The subjiet of
treating Is tlio ono to which I rofir ami ax-id
it nut for tills ovll many of our 1 est lu-n ami
brightest youths would tread tlio paths of vir
tuo anil righteousness instead of ono of dogro-
datiou and misery the only end to which Is a
l)mior's grave. For Instance, a crowd of
friends assemble leforo u bar to have a social
glass. Instead of each settling for his own
poison, tliu generous spirit of one rises and hu
foots tho bill, another, whether it is for his
guncrousness, or n wish to bo culisldeicd so,
follow 8 suit and has tlio glasses l elllled. The
others nru not to bo outdone and by tlio tlnio
tlio round is iimdo tlio punishment of tlio
amount of spirits drank causes n reviving of
their spirit. 1 ho natural consequence fol
lows. Too iiuich space cannot be given this
subject nnd were the laws euforcoil the sight
of u drunkard would lion raiity. The laws
of Nebraska prohibit tieutlug. How many
men would you (hid going to the bar alone
and taking several drinks! Ono would satisfy
him, or two nt best. I do not pretend to In- u
temperance epostlo, but facts are facts and n
moment's meditation will ccitaluly sulllce to
liavo you agree with my statement.
What a vast difference is to le noticeil in
tho condition of our prliicinl thoroughfares
today from that of two years ago. At this
season our streets were always either lougldy
frozen or horribly dilapidated and muddy.
It is qulto a relief to look at them today and
to compare the condition of by-gone days
with tho present. I recollect of nil incident a
Httlo over n year ago, when a heavy load of
freight was being hnulcsl on Kust O street.
Four strong horses could not pull the wagon
out of the sticky situation and it took over
half n day to loosen tun wreck. Toilay lo-uls
doublo as heavy go freely over tlio smooth
surface, cnrrlnges roll ovor tho strecto like
well oiled machinery and as for tlio pleasure
Hookers in riding or dilving they certainly
best of all can appreciate the improvement.
Tho city bastions well in the paying matter
nnd if us much is uccompllHlied in tho next
two ycara as in the same period past, theie
should Ixj no cause for complaint. I take this
opportunity to extend congratulations to the
city fntheis for their good woik, for it has
been well done, nnd wish them continued good
fortune for further oiwrntlons.

Since establishing in this city but a short

bus made n big success of the entei prise. In
ids studio may be seen at all times n gathering
of our leading citizens and fiom the many
familiar faces noticeil about the reception
parlors, it would seem that tho Ellto had
already taken photo's of nearly half of Lin
coln's population. The constant increase in
patronage lias made It necessary to engage
more assistance, so now he has thiee in tho
operating department and several morn in
the ItnlshliiK rooms. Ground floor, pleasant
quarters and line work Is what has resulted
in biiuging to Mr. Townsend an immense
patronage of our very liest people, and ono so
large that he may feelpioud of It.

keep the sjiectator bewildered and dazzled

is no doubt, in his own mind, a swell nnd ex

KDW1N AlttH.V IX "IIAHIIKD OUT."
This now lomaiitle drama will bo presented
nt the Fuiike, Tuesday evening by u sterling
company with Edwin Anion in tlio title role.
"Haried Out" Is an iuteiestlng story of Iilsh
llfo full of love, lomiiuco and levenge, rich
in btrongsltuatioiis, cluver acting and intense-
ly picturesque. It Is interesting throughout
and at tunes thrilling lu its realism, Mr.
Arden lu tho rolo of Edwin Marmniluke, is
seen at his best nnd has made a decided Iim
piesslon wherever he has apoared lu it. In
this, his latest smews, ho has fitted himself
w Ith n pin t which brings out his ninny strong
points, nud entitles him to rank among the
lending nctors of tho dny. Tho play litis met
unlimited pntronago throughout the country
wherever produced und should dinw n goo
house hero on Tuesday evening. The follow
ing flattering notice fniin the llostou Courier
