What U Heard. Soon, Lrned and Perti
nently Sum! to the Multitude.
Kvorylwdy know big hearted and corpu
lent Dick Miller, tho gonernl agent nt thin
point for tho Mimouri raclflo Hallway. Dick
I a good natural, wholosouled sort of n fellow
and ono vrlin likes to toll a joke, nml I might
add takes ono equally as well nil (ho bent of
mankind, llocontly w hilu in the olllce count-
ing up Huai'ce and tallying same with tho
stubs that are taken olt each couKa ticket
when Hold, ho wan indulging In nn argument
with a fellow railroad man, who was trying
to convince him that something was wrong.
The discussion became very heated and dur
ing tho talk "Dick" with his mighty fist
would comedown on tho desk with great
force to more clearly emphasize his remark,
and occasionally tho pllo of stulm in the
drawerbeside him would Iw picked up and
used to make bis assertions nioro weighty.
The other side, too, demonstrated in JesUircs
and loud talk liis cloarly delluod side of tho
question. During tho most animated part of
the conversation when Dick was wanmvt tho
telephone bell rang and turning around ho
uttered a little cuss word and apiearautly
looking for something, picked up a huge
bunch of the ticket stubs, placed them to his
ear and yelled "Wall, Hello, what in tho
deuce do jou want." This was too much for
tlio other sido of tho debate, who walked out
almost dying with laughter.
A lawyer who occupies an office in the Hun
block sent Ids ofllco boy out tho other day to
purchanofor hlniouo of tho famous "pics in
clover puzzles, aliout which ho had heard
and read so much. The boy started out and
bought ono. He, too, had heard a good deal
of the thing ho had been sent after and hu
wanted to investigate it on his own aooount,
so when he caino out of tho store ho took off
the lid Jf tho box, tucked It under Ms arm
and proceeded to manipulate tho puzclo as ho
started tar lc to tlie ofllce with It. He chased
three of the '"pigs" into the inner circle and
was beat upon getting the other onodn there.
Passers by were greatly amused at Ms preoc
cupation. -Just nbout as he had corralled tho
fourth narblo his foot struck a protuding
coal bole cover and away went lxth boy and
puzcle. The "pigs" flow In all directions and
so did the strips of pasteboard ropjontlng
the "cMver. ' Tho outer circle landed around
the boy's nook, and it was a long tiiuo lieforo
be could find it. After a twenty mlauto hunt
ho recovered tho truant marbles, patching up
the boxes and started for the oflloe, rubbing
a braised shin and sovercly critlsingthe "pigs
in clover11 game.
There was a arty of jolly boyschsttlng to
gether the other night in tho card rooun of a
promineiitclub when in came a man who said
he bad a new game. He removed tils .high
silk bat, stood It on the floor against tho waif
paoed oaT a certain distance from it, and then
offered to give any ono in the party three
times the amount of any com ho would toss
into the hat from the scratch, hu to tnko tho
coins which toll wide of the mark. It was a
new game, and every one took a crack at It,
To pitch a ooin .into the Imt ..looked easy
enough, tat ft was found to lie a dWBcult
matter, and when the boys quit tho game the
owner of the hat was PSO richer than when
he came in and proponed tho sport. He was
In high feather, aim had a great laugh on his
A few nights later the author of tho new
gamo dropped Into the club again and en
countered tlie sum crowd. After some littlo
talk ho was asked to sot hi hat slowu and
open the bank. He was not very anxious to
do so, but bo had to comply with the request.
Tho flrst few dollars flew wide of mark, and
ho began to think he was glad be came, when
"plunk" into the liat went a coin. Ho ex
amined it and grow pule. It was a 20 gold
piece. He dare not weaken, so ho (wld up.
Then coin legan to drop iuto Ids hat with
(tokening regularity, and when he quit thu
game he was (280 out. Ho could not under
stand it at all until tho porter informod him
that tho two big winners of the evening had
been at the club house since early morning.
Tboy hod (acwl oil the distance, practiced
pitching coins at a plug hat, awl had then
laid for him. Now he is looking for another
new game to get oven on.
Itnow seems more likely than ever that
Lincoln will within u short time, have an
other opera house. I am Inclined to believe
this from the fact that within the past week
numerous developments have causet the gen
eiul publlu to take moiu confidence in the
reports. Wednesday, a 11 r. Woods, one of
thu most successful architects of theatres, or
rived in the city In reioiiso to a call from
lion. John Fitzgutnld. .Mr. Fitzgerald's
quarter of a block, col nor tenth and M streets
was thoroughly InsHH'lcd and that gentleman
remarked tou fi lend of thu CoimiKit that hu
was looking over the giound with his visitor
with a viow of commenulng arrangements to
build a now hole) and opcia house. It it to hu
umgulllrciit structure, six to eight stories
high and to caver thu etiliru quarter of n
block. Our Pilxgerald, who 1 one of I. In
coin's host pillows, never dors things by
halves, and 1 havu gissl reason tolmllevuthut
Uku unto his various olherschemHS heretofore
perfected, this will also lulminuto in a hand
somu reulity and a big success.
For several weeks past a socret order of
this city has nlsii been negotiating and setting

Judging from tho above, with bright pros
pects on Itoth sides for n new theatm, it
seems but nvsouable to beliuvo that somu

by cast U street cltlrens mid Influential pn

feel Jubilant. It Is only the matter of a shoi t

"a hunch ok kbyh."
Tuesday evening tho over popular comedy
"A Bunch of Keys" holds tho boards at tho
Funko This is tho ilrst ono of Hoy ts plays
to meet with such overwhelming success and
although produced hero several times before
novor fails to draw crowded houses, which
they invarlbly please. The Buffalo Courier
says: "Tho Bparks company, in Hoyt's "A
Hunch of Keys," drew a large audience at the
Lyceum lost evening. The play has been
produced in Duffalo several times, but does
not seen to lose any of its attractive qualities.
It is as hilarious as ever, and tho audiunce
was kept in roars of laughter throughout tli9
evening. There were new songs, dances and
Jokes, though tho old "two dollar'1 Joke seems
to keep its hold on the jieople as ever. Louise
Hatifonl, as Teddy Key, sings ami kicks up
her heels in clever style, and is especially
good in her impersonation of the drummer.
As Dolly Dobbs, tho domestic, Dertiu Con
way was graceful and sprightly, and Ada
Uothner and Nellie Bowers as Hose Kelly and
May Keys, respectively, sang and acted in
good style James B. Macklu, as Grimes, is
undoubtedly tho funny man of the show, be
sides being a good dancer. His grimaces and
contortions are ludicrous in tho extreme.
Charles Burke was a good Littleton Bnags,
the lawyer and hotel keeper.
Who of the stellar lights of tho stago that
comes to Lincoln is more, warmly or enthusi
astically welcomed than tho poerlcH Lottal
Who Is it that has delighted us all, old and
young, with her kittenish ways and quaint
manner and altogether dellghtfull personality
as an artist for over so many years and comes
back to us, season after season, as young and
bright and charming as of old? Why, Lotta,
of course. There is only one Lotta, and her
annual engagement at the Funko opera house
is looked forward to as eagerly by thousands
of admirers as if they were all sisters or cous
ins or aunts or some other relatives of Little
Kelt, or tho .IfarcAioness, or the Little Detec
tire or Mag or any of the other delightful
creations of Lotta that havs given the public
so much pleasure. Now tho bellghtful little
comedienne comes to us with her new play
now in tho sense that it is not quite so famil
iar as the other plays in her repertoire
"Pawn Ticket No. 210." The piece lias been
written expressly to fit Lotta's peculiar stylo,
and that means that it is brimful of Lotta
from the rise to the fall of tho curtain. It Is
a piece of general interest, full of excellent
oints, has a taking plot, good situations,
bright dialogue and all that sort of thing,
Lotta's supporting company this season is
away up in ability and comprises a numtier
of parties of recognired merit and ability, , It
is a foregone conclusion that the artlstlo re
ceptions of theactrest will draw a crowded
Three good attractions nil in ono week is
nothing new for tho Funko and the coining
weak we are to see three sterling shows with
our old friend Kate Castlotou last but by no
means least. Thursday evening she presents
to u Lincoln audience for tho ilrst tlmo hor
latest and greatest success "A Paor Doll" of
which the Chicago nlYr Ocvm says: "It
does not require much of a medium for tho
introduction of tho peculiar humors of MUs
Kate Custletou and hor comMiiy to thu pub
lie, nnd "A Paper Doll," which is certainly
an Improvement on her last year's nonsense,
quite serves tho purjiose. There is somo Idea
of plot to the piece, nnd though ono may
often losu sight of it, it cIiusch along after
somu laughable Incidents, some entertaining
music, and a deal of harmless fun. It is
much to say iu praise of Miss Castletou that
she has gathered about her a much mora liot-
tcr couqiany of frollckers than sho formerly
thought iHKisHary to her success with the ,
public. In llertiu Coote, who Is as nimble ns
a Jumping Jack nnd very much more flexible
she ha n valnnblo assistant, his songs mid
caiers provoking no small ptoKrtlon of tho
laughter throughout the livening. Miss
Denves, who represents the extreme iludlne
w Ith n multiplicity of outre signs mid antics
Is a right merry hurlesquor, and contribute
much to the entertainment of the audience.
Miss Castleton has returned wisely to the do
muru dress of the (Junket-ess, and thu lmwlld
erlng kick of the coquotto that Ilrst gava her
popularity, when sho sang the song she has
revived, "For Goodness' Bake, Don't Bay I
Told Vim," This is the present crown of her
Aiiecom, and it take as well as ever it did.
