Miss Hlsluud, tliuOiximmofu'iiii Magazine's
courier in tho attempt to go around the world
In soventy-flvo days or less, missed cornice
tlons In France last Kiiudny. Hho was ex
pecting to take the steamer Iji Champagne
leaving at seven thnt morning, but arrived a
little too late. Hho was scheduled to 1h In
Now York next Monday, and tho French
steamer was tho only one that would reach
Now York on time. Hho then went to Queens
town to take tho Bothnia, which is a twelve
day steamer. It seems n great pity that a do
lay of mi hour or two, tho hist connection to
bo made, should mako Miss Hlsland miss her
mark after surmounting all other dltllculties.
Miss ISislmid says tho way her trip originat
ed was this: Mr. Walker, tho owner mid ed
itor of tlio Cosmopolitan, was talking with
a party of neivspuH)r men about Nellie lily's
proposed trip for the New York World. Ho
said ho thought she made a mistake ill going
east because ho believed tatter tiiuo could Ik)
made going westward. Considerable discus
sion followed, and the upshot of It was that
Mr. Walker said he believed he conld prove
It. Ho asked Miss Hlsland to undertake tho
trip, and named a train that would start in
less than live hours. Hho consented. Her
dressmaker happened to have n gown under
way, and It was finished in two hours. At
trulu time Miss Hlsland wuson hand with n
grip containing a change of underclothing
mid a few toilet articles. Think of making a
trip of thirty thousand miles without a trunk
mid a woman ut that. Her route was from
New York to San Franclscb by rull. Thenco
to Yokohama, Tenting, CoIuiiiImi, Aden, I'ort
Bald, Drludisl, Havre and New York. In
case she failed to catch u fast steamer at
Huvro she intended to run over to Kugluud
to take ship. At the time Miss Hlsland miss
ed tho connection for her throe thousand wn
ter journey, Miss Illy was approaching Ban
Francisco, there to tagln her three thousand
mile trip on land.
Tho Coukikii Is specially Interested In Miss
Hlsland's Journey liecauso it sustains close
business relations with tho Cosmojiolitan,
whereby this juiper mid that magazine aro
clubbed together for fcl.UO n year. With n
single exception no other flrst-clasa magazine
can bo had fur that price, not to mention the
Couhikh. Mr. Walker Is a wealthy man and
is pouring out money to mako tho Cosmopol
itan n valuable and a beautiful monthly.
Miss Hlsland has an illustrated article in the
Cosmopolitan for January on tho famous
beauties of tho present day, both III Kuropo
and America. Among them Is given Car
menc'tu, tho dancer who was in Lincoln two
or three weeks ngo in Kiralfy's siectncle,
"Antlopo." Caimoucitii has a grout reputa
tion ill Hpaiu, where she is known as the
Pearl of .Seville. Hho Hashed upon that city
with a grace mid stylo of dancing that
was now. These with her tiouuty captured
the hearts of tho volatile Spaniards mid they
The papers have announced the closing of
the Omaha J lee bureau in Lincoln. This is
probably tho immediate result of a series of
three libel suits recently brought by Lincoln
men for petty grievances. Ily maintaining a
Lincoln olllco tho Jlie was subject to legul
service in this city. A man in Lincoln could
begin suit without much cost or trouble, and
could vent hU spite by harassing Mr. Iloso
water with fro pi en t trlw here, entailing con
siderable expense, annoyance mid loss of time.
Tho ISee has been sued four times during tho
last three or four months, but It Is likely that
ttt least three of tho suits would not have lieou
taguu had it been necessary to try tho casein
Omuha. Mr. Al. Kwan Is still the corre
spondent of tho lice and there will bo no
dearth of papers, but tho Omaha olllco will
not recognize tho existence of a Lincoln bu
reau in the sense of a branch olllce liable to
legal service. Men who want to bring lllel
suits merely to worry Mr. Ilosewuternre lia
ble to think n second time before they begin
proceedings In Omaha.
Mr. Al. Falrbrothor, late of tho Call, went
to Omaha two weeks ngo to wrlto heavy ed
itorials for tho World-Herald, It wus rumor
ed In uowspaper circles up there that Al was
ultimately to bo put in charge of tho "colfeo
pot" In the place of Fred Nye, who intended
to (iiiit newspaper work. When Nye and
Frank Johnson sold tho Republican they re
tained the job printing department. They
are doing a big and prolltablo business, and in
order to give it his attention Nyo lms given
up regular nowspaiwr work for the time le
lug at least, A different hand is at work In
the "colfeu pot," and In frequent allusions to
state otllclals, politicians and Line ilu men we
can see plainly tho work ot Falrbrother'spcn.
Al hasiiu extensive mnlthorough acquaintance
with the politicians of Nebraska, and ought
to be a valuable man to the World-llerald
for that reason if for no other. Hutthcroaro
other good reasons. It seems sometimes as
though Al atfectcd the mauueilsuisof the bo
heiuiau, but It isn't necessary and doesn't add
anything to tho general esteem. He has the
brilliant Hashed of work of tho traditional bo-
hernial! mid ho has given evidence of u capac
ity for long stretches of it. Ho can wrlto w lib
then again lie can assume n picturesque style.
He has a lively sense of humor rough shod,
It may lie, but original and Npoutaiiisius. He
can turn out home-made verses, has mi ac
quaintance with and appreciates good litera
ture, can work like a steam eugluo on occa
slon, and altogether is mi exceedingly handy
man to have In thoollli-c.
Lincoln lias It: tho grip on the state fair.

The recent charity ball iloveloiel a sur
prising crop of "kickers," and the Impudence
of these fellows is enough to uiakoouo "tired."
This is mi oocnlou when slang Is none too
strong to express my feelings. They have
raised a great howl about the money usd for
cxMnses Incident to tho ball. I have no pa
tience to argil' the matter to explain how
the money cau.e from purses that will not
miss It and went Into thoxckctsof deserving
laboring Hople to Im again oxHuil(sl for the
necessaries of life right hero at homo. I
think the gentlemen who managed tho char
ltylall aro foolish in putting themselves on
thoilefeusive,lu trying to "explain" away ob
jections. It Is no business of these "kickers."
It is safe to say that none of them bought a
ticket to the ball, and no public fund was
drawn on. John H. Clark, H. II. llurnham,
II. 1. Foster, J. A. Iluckstnir, Judgo Cobb and
a nutuberof other gentlemen chose to attend a
ball whoso business Is III Certainly not John
Doe's or Hlchard lino's. If one of thesochups
should go to Mr. Clark's olllco and object to
the manner In which that gentleman was
spending his money, Mr. Clark would lie
justified In kicking the iiucrtluimt fellow
out of the olllco. If one hundred mid fifty
fieoplo chose to give a ball mid tux them
selves five dollars a ticket Instead of tho ac
tual oxjienso of tho affair (about two dollars),
It Is their own business. If they choose to
give tho surplus to the oor or invest It lu
Lincoln real estate, why that Is their business,
too. I cannot see by what theory John Doe
gets tho shadow of a right to dictate how
John H. Clark shall spend his money In such
a case. Tho meddlesome "kickers" should li
trcutejl with tho silent contempt they deserve.
LOVE AND ''LA GRIPPE."
Oil I my love has got n red, red nose,
A face round us the moon,
And If she slugs a melody,
It's not nt all In tune.
Thcnlfaro thee well, my bouny lass,
And faro tlieo well awhile,
From your sweet presence I must Ily
At least ten thousand mllo.
Oh! my love has got a hacking cough
And bloodshot Is her eye,
Her temperature, the doctor says,
Abnormally Is high.
Her voice Is rouuli and tough and griilf
Her N-s sound Just like l)-s,
And when she trios to tell her love,
Hho ends up lu a sneeze.
Oht my lovohiisgot(a bad, had cold,
Her throat Is very sore,
Hornilsory I can't bear to see,
Norhear her raueoussnoro.
I'll send myself a telegram,
And rend It with a sigh,
That calls me far, far out of town
Until her noso Is dry.

In that be

her daughter and Is wrapt up lu wayward
Fay. She ss-iiks of Fay's Infatuation for tho

Fay Is how In 1'arls, but several managers

When sho played in comic opera through

wherever she went, and she has a host of ad
mirers west of the Mississippi who would Imi
glad to sis. her back on t lie stage. It Is a

Clarke, a clover comedian for many years, Is
the new stranger. Ills work U-ars a strong
resemblance to that of (leorge Itlchards, and
he made the character show up for Its whole

Murray and Murphy nnd "Our Irish Visit
ors" will bo with us ngnln next Wednesday
night at Funko's. An exchange says of thorn:
Murray mid Murphy, are stars. They have
a rich and rather gorgeous Irish diulcct, nml
nn easy, iiaturul stylo of acting that surpasses
tho efforts of other comedians of their cluss,
and that gives a certain artistic touch to their
work that is missing from tho efforts of the
ordinary run of dialecticians. They aro great
fun makers, uncquulcd In their seclal field.
In their 'tersonations they remind one of the
cleverness of iX-nnian Thompson. Col. (ill
hooley is quite us much a masterpiece as Is
Joshua Whiteomh, and Alderman Jerry Mo
Omuls is as perfect a picture of n metropoli
tan ty) as If it wero lifted lssllly out of tho
life of New York. It Is worth more than tho
price of udnmslon to hear Murray and Mur
phy sing "I Owe Tin Dolhus to O'Orady,"
and there Is tho wonderful ballet In which
(IllhiMiley, Mcdinuls, the dudo and the Teuton
appear In pink tights.
KHMINIK AMI .NAIUY.
When these two operas were presented by
Rudolph Aronsou's comic oH)ra company ut
the Now York Casino over two years ago it
was expected that their reception would bo a
hearty one and that their term of favor would
Ikj long and prosperous, but that t icy would
hold public attention as long as they have, no
one, not oven their mot sanguine admirers,
over d rea m -d Hut somehow they struck the
key-note of popular favor, and ever since
then they attracted crowds that literally
piu-kisl the Casino They seemed to sv-ess
Juit the very elements that the public had
been looking for lu light oK'ia -simplicity of
plot and dialogue, plenty ot strong and hu
murous comedy situations nnd pretty music
that would linger In the memory. They will bo
given hero by Mr. Arousou's couisiny In the
same careful stylo that distinguished their
production at the NowJVork Casino, The
costumes are all new, and the scenery repre
sents somonf tho most beautiful conceptions
or Henry K. Hoyt. all brand now. "Kriulnlo"

The most striking feature of the week was
the two South Sea Islanders, said to be the
only representatives of now extinct cannibal
triU's. They are UiIIimmsI and dressed lu tho
costume made familiar by pictures, They
execute a dance lu which one Issit time with
a sort of tomtom while the other shallot wo
gourds llllisl with gravel. On the little stage
Morton gives a talk something like (lisirgo
Wilson, the minstrel, Jennie lloyd plays on
a variety of tuneful articles, Including horse
sIiih-s. On the big stage Senator av gives a
very gissl Juggling Nrformauee, HurthiliMw
some high kicking and quiet tumbling, mid
other specialties fill out the program.
The Museo will have good prograinsnu both
stages next week, but theovershadowlng feat
