AlthotiKh MiikkIo Mitchell is worth cloo

how iirospority has duaifcil her heart: MIks
Mary Krninpa of ICil 1'oplar avenue, l'ldlu
dclphla has been working for Maggie .Mitch
ell for f(l ht week, but lias lolt tho servico of
"Fnnchon." According to tho story Miss
Krampn told Mayor Cregfer of Chicago on
Tuesday, Miss Mitchell sent her tho following
letter, on tho strength of which tho engage
ment wan entered Into: "I will glvo you j(i
n week and pay nil expenses: in return I will
expect you to teach and advance mo all you
call in high German, mid take entire charge
of my street and Ntago vtardrobo, dress my
hair and wigs, see that my hotel and stage
dressing rooms are kept in order, to bo al
ways neat mid tidy, to always wear a whit
apron and to attend to such other matters as
may from time to time crop up." Overcome
with tho burdens of her labors Miss Krampa
was laid up with nervous prostration at Hurl
lugtoii, mid because shu could not continue
her duties, despite of Miles, Miss Mitchell
abandoned her there. Through tho kindness
of llurllngtou otllclalA, hhu says, she was for

"My Aunt Bridget" entertained u liouso
full of spectators on Wednesday evening.
Tho play was almost devoid of plot but was
chuck full of fun from beginning to end
George W . Monroe played tho part of
"Bridget," and his make-up as mi obese Irish
female, his dialect and his comicalities of
speech and manner, were sulliclent almost to
force a smile on thvfacoof a graven linage.
Every time "Aunt Bridget" appeared on tint
stngo a roar of laughter was sure to follow.
Mr. Monroe was ably seconded by John 0.
Rice, as "I'. Alton McVeigh," mid in fact
many preferred tho more rellnol fun of Hlcu
to the broad drolleiy of Monroe.

Loaded with impurities, your blood
cleansing with Ayer's Sarsaparilln,
The Iteliiin of Spring.
At this season of tint year when every
thing begins to present an aiiiilmntcd np-
M'arauco mid tliu change from the cold bias is
of u inter are transformed to the cheerful
and luvigoratiiig atmosplieroof spiitig It Is
ought but nalui al than humanity should feet
Intel estisl in tho change of attire that is cus
tomary at this particular I l.ne. A Coimitm
reporter passing the very attractive windows
of tho Kwliig clothing company ymtordny
nud observing several extra ordinary beauti
ful things lor Spring therein displayed,
dropped In for n moment to see what there
was now and to have a chat regarding the,
prevailing fashions for tho undo sox. And It
might hero be added that if the correct
styles me not to bo found at Kivlng cloth
ing company it would lie u fiultless task to
look else wliei o in the city for tli.Mii. All tho
firm's goods are purchased In person by Col
onel Kwing, who as a buyer lias no tspial a4
to taste, quality or alue. His long expert'
dice in years gone by has given him an In
sight that fow western buyers have attained
and the fruit of tills exierlenco was never
befnio more pleasing to tlio company's vast
patronage than It is this season.
In nil departments may lie found the sea
sons latest and most desirable cllects. In tho
gentlemen's department the most attractive,
line of top coats, both in light and dink
colois are shown in a ilozvn dilfeieut styles
while in Spring suits the assortment is the
largest and most varied over seen before in
tho west. It comprises everything that the
artistic tailors of the metropolitan centers
can produce niid embraces u most elegant
line of sacks, cutaways, priuco alborts, etc.
In the lioys and childrous department tho
firm has this season surpassed even its groat
Hue shown heretofore, and if there is a lady
in the city that cannot llnd a choice In tho
magnificent large lino that the Kwing Cloth
ing Co is now sliowlng, certainly her idea
of nn appropriate suitor garment for horlioy
is not yet designed or made up. Tlio fact 'Is
Kwlng's always make their boys and cluldrens
department a specialty, nud having catered
to the best element of this class of trade for
tho last ten years aro certainly at this late
date In tho liest position to understand the
demand of the ladies of this city for just
what Is wanted. Of course if you have over
visited this popular place you know that they
have the handsomest fitted up detriment
for the convenience of tlio ladles that Is to bo
found in the city. It Is apart from the
balance of the miniinoth large store and
every comfort Is amply provided.
In conclusion it might be well to say u fow
wot ds regarding the new hue of neckwear,
ami other furnishing goods, a suiuplo line of
which will bo found handsomely displayed In
their east window, and is attracting universal
attention.- In-shoU the Kwing clothing
company now having received their entile
line of Spring goods and feeling that they
can please you in whatever you may want in
their line cordially Invite you to call In at
any time either to buy or inspect and that
you will be pleasantly eutei tallied while uu

A cm Ions story Is told In couiiiH'tlcii with
Anna Dickinson's Insiiilty, It Is asset ted
that slut was once jilted by VYhltclaw Held of
the New Yor't I'llbiine Years ago, whll'i
on a lecturing tour in Ohio she met Held,
then a poorly paid, stiuglmg newspaper
man. She was lmprss"il with his ability
and took n liking to him. On her tetiiru to
New York she called on Horace (lieeley, a
personal friend, ami )crsuiiilctl him (o send
lor Held, Tho young man wis guileful to
Miss Dlekinsm, and a waim fiieudship
spiam; up hUwei'li them, It soon developed
Into love and they became engiged, Tims
far Iho story Is romantic, but Ii.mii comes a
change. Held came rapidly to the ft out after
(Ireeley's death, mid he dropH'd his beuefncs
tress to marry tint daughter of a Now York
inlllionalie, who helped hlin to buy the Tri
bune and become n rich man. His faithless
ness was a great shock to Mbs Dickinson,
and soino suppose her ment'il powers began
to full from that tlni't because she has been
a changed woman ever since.
P. T. Barinim fsdeail mid the newspapers
have emitted columns of gush, Whyf Ho
was a successful til in, m tile millions, ami wo
Americans worship a millionaire. But there
is another side to Hie ih-ad show uiuii'senrccr.
Neatly a yearago the papeis iitiuniinced the
coming of u circus to Lincoln. A f e das
later the Hiiine ixipers hlossiimed with state
ments (hat Baruuin's show would exhibit
heie "soon". These announcements went
kept up until the other cltciis had come nud
jfono, Imt Itanium's vMi was delayed three
mouth, The Prince of Humbugs had hum
bilged tho pisiple of Lincoln mid vicinity to
hurt his rival's business. That was one of
P. T. Bin Hum's methods.
Tho amiouncemeuts in tlio papers were inN
vertisemeiits of course. Illinium's agent was
Charles Stotve, and TllK CoiJUlKll contained
a cjluiim of chat about his experiences In the
circus business and especially during Bar
mini's visit to Knglutid. Stowe has been in
the business for years, but ho is an old news
paper man with habits of observation, the
iilitllt v to exmess himself and tho courage to
talk out lit im'otlinr If ho feels llko it. He has
lieeuoiie of Hamulus ussisuiuts who were en
trusted with Iiiijmji tiiut depirtiiieuts In tho
management o' the great elicits. Ho was
brought int J Intimito contact with the boss
showman and knew him like a book.
Charles Stowo says P. T. Itanium was a
failure. He thirsted for fame and got nolo
rlety. Howasnuver but a shadow of what
the public took I. Iiu for. He was a maguill
ceut poser, the great pretender in tlio moral
farce, the monarch mountebank of the tiuiO(
He amassed a fortune, but his life was n bit-'
ter dlsapiKjInlinent to himself because of
knowledge of himself. Ms was the .irclitype
of tho shrewd, calculating, grasping Yankee,
enterprising without being liberal, a relent
less bargainer wIioho every uuilertakicg cen
tered in self. His motto was to got as much
for nothing as possible, and in every gratui
tous Way to keep his name Iwfore the public.
No man U a hero to his valet, and there was
nothing heroic in Mr. Btrmiiii to his inti
mate associates or employes. The relations
between his partner and himself were never
of mi intimate or sincerely friendly nature.
Ho mule no concessions and always exacted
tho uttermost farthing, For Ills employes he
dad no consideration. Length, faithfulness
or excellence of service brought neither rec
ognition, Increase of wages nor provision for
old age. In so far at least as Ills circus asso
ciations were concerned the policy was to llnd
pietext to reduce compensation never to in
crease it. He was a hard, unsympathetic
taskmaster, and if he was a philanthropist lie
never leinK.Tod individual business relations
At one lime in his career Itanium seemed
to find pleasure in the title Prince of Hum
bugs, but bitterly it galled him. And yet,
whether ho paidfUOOd for a banquet that the
English uohllliv'"toiidcred"'tilui or exhibited
a woolly horsu ho rightfully eat'iio 1 the title.
In audacity of exaggeration ho wasuurivaksl.

beiiellts of printer's ink his ugcnls weio con
tinually instructed lo cut down advertising
space. Many much sin illur shows paid tlio
liowspapeisiuoio money than Baruuiii, but
got fewer notice-. Ho was piactically a l)lo
in the details of the elicits biisiue-.s, mid could
liardly tell the diU'oreuco between a llihloc-

that Hon. (I. M. LaiuliMtsnii wnsoirensl Iho

United States. Piesidcul Harrison gave tlio
Nebraska senators to understand that they

great deal of prestige, besides giving tlio In

Whatever other reasons he may have had,

Tlie street car system of a city Is a pretty
good Index of the prosperity of tin town. It
rliould lie gratifying to Llncolultes, thero-
fine, to notice not only tho Improvements In
existing Hues hut the extensions of others.
In n fow months most of the trackage will bo
equipped wl'li electllclty, but tliatis so near
ly ait assiited fact that It is accepted witli the
comfortable philosophy of an ucompllshed
fact. But the new lines cm ry indications of
material growth In Hie city mid f substan
tial confidence in its future by Its monoyisl
men. Street car systems are not extended
for sentiment, mid when the management de
cide on a now lino It Is only after very care
fill ilelilieratioii. The announcement, there
fore, of new lines to tint penitentiary, to tlio
Seventh Day Ail ventist college and to Have
lock is a big thing for Lincoln. It means
that nourishing suburbs are to Imi brought
within short range of our business douses,
and it means that men of largo capital will
hate an interest In building up nud improv
ing t' e territory along tdeso new lines.
As was Intimated some time ago the Union
Paclfle and the Hock Island aro patching up
their troubles. Tint former has offered to
give right of way over Its bridge at Omaha.
Imt the latter wants damages for the three
or tour months' delay In oierating Its new
line by way of Lincoln. Tills difference may
cause further delay, Imt the dispute is in a
fair way to a settlement. Tho falling out of
these two railroads had otto tlfect on Lincoln
that few of our ixsmlo know of. It has long
liecn Kil Slosson's dream to have the Union
Pacific run its main Hue by way of the Capi
tal City, and ho had ei Minded the iii'inngrrs
of Ills road to make it concession hi Hint direc
tion, When tho Harelip broke olT all arrange
ments the Union Pacific hud planned to run
ono of its tlirough trains by way of tl Is
city. It w'as to come to Lincoln over the
Hock Island track, then g. ninth over the U.
P. track to David City and then over the H.
& M. truck to Its main Hue atColiimbiis. At
Hist thought this seems a very round nlioiit
route, but it Is only about twenty miles long- i
er than the regular route by way of Fremont,
and that could liomado up easily by a through
