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.

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. Those hnudsomo whiskers of "Dii-k" Hei Hii'h nrp tho envy of nil the legisle tors and area purtlctiluily attractive feature of the gallant repnosentutivo's make-up. From the gnller ies tho fulr sox look down to admire the silky flow-of nature's gifts and as he ieoscs In his easy chair in the lower house, casually comb lug out his handsome locks with his llugeis, the guy assemblage of female beauty that Is nearly nlwnysseen watching him, his brother rep's nnd other male friends cannot fall to appreciate his enviable situation. "Dick" has a flue Laird and w ns it not for my modesty I would venture to ask him how- ho got it and If ho could not "put mo on" how to get one as handsome. V Tho most pleasant minor I hnvo heard for a long time is tho ono that is now circulated nliout tho Observer's genial friend, John II. Wright. Dame rumor has it that he is just now figuring on how many more duys it will bo until the huppy event takes place an I of courso ovcry day is so much nearer n llfo of bliss and happiness. Customary with usual modesty and rosiiooting phslges made to in formant, I cannot give her name, hut it is said she is u most charming person uiid just such a ouo as will do credit to John II.

Tho persons making up these puitios are from among Lincoln's ellto circle, several of whom have been abroad heretofore and will on their next trip view different localities. If tho horse that was in tho mail service of a hundred yearn ago could see the movements of tho grey liorso that now transfers tho mall between the depot and tho jiostollleo, it would liavo good cause, judging fiom its rapidity, to think that this Is n degenerated ago.

With a poor company, een Mr, Downing could not liavo made the show a success but sill rounded us he Is with a company of uuusunl meiil It is Impossible to criticise It. Mr. Downing Is lining, to the en tire sal Israel Ion of all, the place made wicaut by tlio death of McCullough, He Is gland, impiessivouud icnl mid does not result to the bluster or stampede which usually accompan Ies such characters. The chief member of hlssuppoit, Mr, Chits. E. Herman, Is a thor ough actor nnd one who bestows on Mr. Downing Ids untiring energy mid proved himself muster of his lines. .Miss Blair (Mm. Downing) also contributes much to the succos.s of the piece. Tnken nil togethui it mh n grand pel formunco nud one that the iteoiilo of Lincoln will not soon forget, T1IK "NKW FANTAHMA." Jloudny un cuing the Hnnlon's ojicuisl a tin co nights engagement with "Fnnbisinn." The piece has Imsjii entirely changed and Im proved siuco its last visit hole, scarcely any thing lcmnlnlng thnt ouo who hns once soon it would lecognlro. As a scenic produc tion it Is mtmeloiis and is ahead of all similar atti actions Change after change keep the sjiectator bewildered and dazzled and will not allow one to loose sight ot the stage for an instant for fear of losing some of tho amazing trunsimmntioii scenes. The company Is about tlio same us we saw Inst season with Miss Ijiuru Hurt us Faiitasma, the fairy Queen, in thu title i olo Tho rest of the company is couqiosod of clever nt lists who aio truly adepts In their several lines. Largo housos greeted them each night and tho 8. H. O. sign appeared teglllaily at each lerformanco. Mr. Warren, the manager, suyn it is just the kind of business they have been doing nil season.

To a poor house, but one Justly deserved, n poor company presunteil Terry, tho swell, at the oiK-rn house Thursday evening, 'llio plot is u fair one and might go, in tho hands of a goisl company, but unless Jack Terry sui rounds hluioclt witli a better suppoit with the exception of his leading lady, than ho did hero, it will never bo a success. Terry is no doubt, in his own mind, a swell nnd ex hibits himself in so vol al dlireieut suits of flnshy stage clothe and In some Instances Is very clever, but heio the show- ends. To gether with thu orchestra they left u poor impression with our thc-tio goers. "UI.MKIt. KOIl COMlltKhS." Ijist evening a fair houo greeted Geo.

It wis a gt eat rolo nud .Mr. Ulmer filled the bill Miss Ulmer, ns Anna Woolcy, thu politician's daughter, did not liavo a chance to display any extent of tuitut but Is certulnly very cluer and acceptable in her iart. The rest of the company is good nnd u well satisfied audience left the house and no doubt many will icturii this evening when thu company will put on their other play "Col. Kellers.'1 This Is said to bo Mr. Ulmer's greatest cCort and lu it he is allotted u I ole w hlch he alone is able to sustain. His fiequeut leferenco to local i-haracteis nud members of the legisln tuie, cannot fall to innko a hit, as it "caught on" last evening in gieat shape. You cannot ulToid toinlsH the show this evening as it Is tho last appearance of the company here and should draw a laigo hoii'o. 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- 'oannV 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 npM-uruuce of tl o rhllhiirmonic orchestra vras a great surprise to the audience no doubt, but the fact of th matt,or is that after tho lebtiku the old inches tra got from tho stage Thursday evening, Mr. Mcurcutlnif called on Manager Mcltejnolds and iisktsl him to accept his leslgiiailou ami consider his contract off.
