Those who hnvo not Ik en through the es

of the enterprise In which tho (Inn of Max

l&MM-StKU O street. This new firm, ntter
nn xxlstruco of only n few months, have
manifested their conlldenco In Lincoln's
growth by renting and stocking the largest
retail store in tho city. Their building Is n
mammoth double four story structure, and
theru tire few larger stores even In the larger
el tie. The proprietors' him is to make the
tore inconvenient ns possible to the letall
buyers of Lincoln, and to that end they hnvo
placed In n most complete stock of goods In
all tho standard lines. Hero everything
nocesMtry for housekeeping and dress can lie
obtained under one roof, tho combination of a
linlf dozen different stores under ono owner
ship nnd management, affording peculiar ad
vantages to tlio imyer in tlio way or greater
vui ioty of good and reduced prices. The
More has only been opeu a woclc; but already
the trade has txceeded tho expectation of the
linn. On tho first lloor lire ittuated tho dry
goods, notion, kid glove, fancy goods boot
and shoe, gents' furnishing, hardware, sport.
Ing goods mid grocery departments, oicli
complete by itself mid under the direction of
capable superintendents. The second lloor Is
devoted entirely to furniture nnd lamps, mid
tho Immense nrea hero i completely covered
wlih one of the llnest assortments of furniture
in Lincoln. And on tho third lloor nre lo
cated the stove nnd tinware departments and
tho fourth Is devoted to reparlng, storage,
etc It is tho Intention lo add a number of
additional lines in tho near future. The
store is supplied with elevators, and the first
lloor Is equipped with tlio llestedo cam ami
bundlo system. Tho appointments through'.
out are lint-class In overy respect. A force
of fifty employes will bo required to handle
the trade. Lincoln is to oo congratulated on
securing through tho enterprise of Maxwell,
HlmriH) & Iloss, h store that would bo i ciedlt
Ho Chicago or New Yoik. It Is a big thing

World'a fair Is to bo hold In tho parks
grouped ax tho South Pnrk ajHtem, but
separately known as Wnshlngtoii park and
Jnckaon park. Tho Inko front Is to bo n
so called annex.
Tho greatest dllllculty, at nny nuo tho
ono which caused tho longest delay, was
tlmt by tho original plnn tho situ would
really lmvo been ill vlilcd-thorowould havo
iK-en two fairs iitHoniodlstnnco apart. Tha
holders of the needed ground stood out for
along time, but (limlly gnvo consent ou
condition that certain Improvements
should be made, so that tho space Is now
nmplo mid thu locution very convenient.
When the last objection was withdrawn
I'rosldeut Palmer smilingly remarked to
"It appears that nil nro going ono way,
no I may say that npplnuso Is In order."
On thu Instant tho nssoinblcd negotiators
nnd all tho spectator broke Into u roar
which was long continued. And all tho
country will applaud, for tho South parks
mnko an admirable site. On the lake front
them will I h two, perhaps three, maguitl

A PRETTY SPANISH DANCER.
The Latent rorelgn Seeker fur Auim-l-nn
I'linie mul I'lirtiiue.
Tho Impresslblu yountf men of New York
city who-nro possessed of wealth and un.
limited tlmo lmvo found a now divinity
wn.tliy their devotion, dollars and dinners.
Her tiamo Is Senorlta Carolina Otero, and
sho luui garueivd faniu mul ((old In Paris as
a dancer. Iloth of I beso she hopes to In
crenso by nn American tour She Is a nu.
tlvo of Spain, the thumhter of it general
and ni actress who married, quarreled mid
separated. Senorltn Otero owns to having
lived III years Her fate Is pretty and her
ugiiro ciegaut, hue lias Drown ejesanil
hair, and is said to be rather well educated.
Like many other women of thu stage she
possohswi.u. "history," tho principal Inci
dent of which Is told by her friends with
all tho embellishment of romance. Thoy
say that once "when sho was dancing near
Madrid sho was abducted by ngontH of Al
phouso XII and taken to his palace. Her
abductors left her ulouu In a room and
went olT to tell tho king that tho girl ho
wished to see was at hand While they
were gone sho Jumped through n window
Into tho garden and escaped to her hotel.
This adventure heled glvo her renown in
Paris, where sho became a sort of crazo."
This yarn will hardly bear the Inexo
rablo light thrown upon it by historical
fncts. Alphouso XII died In tho fall oi
1883 after u linger

ine never occurred. It Is not In tho ordl
nary course of eventa for an Immature,
girl of 13 to bo at tho same tlmo famous on
tho stafo mid tho object of a monarch's
vagrant favor. It Is probably trua that
tho youni woman Is a good dancer nnd
handsome. Other reports abcut her for
which doubtless sho Is iu no way responsi
bleshould Ihj taken with tho proverbial
"grnln of tuilt,"

ever popular short coats which tho English

military and scouring cloths, mid tho bison

This second sketch Is reminiscent of a hunt

cloth, (Hted smoothly to the figure, nnd mndo
with hip seams and very wide po.-ket lla to
match tho deep culTs. Tho collar Is the high
turned over kind known ns the Prussian, nnd
Is faxteneil with two buttons but not tightly
