It will be a matter of considerable surprise
to mnny that havo not seen the sign placetl'
ou uueir,couutcr that this popular dining
ball will after May flrst cease to conducted
lu Its present quarters. In fact tomorrow'
the last Sunday meal will be served and the
following few days will be reserved for tho'
removal of all Mr. Odell's effects to a new'
and very deslrablo location at 1538 O street,
which has been leased for a term of years.
Evidently the genial Mr. Odell does not coin
cide with tho deceased Greely's old and well
tried mnxltim "go west, young man," ami if
the great old Journalist had lived to see Lin
coln in its present day, he would himself be
saying "go east young man" instead. Pact'
is trade and travel is nil moving east in this
city, and to be up with tho procession Mr.
Odell found it necesiary to go where thd
crowd is going. A year ago when east O
street was yet In Its Infancy as a business lo
cality such amove would have proved disas
trous, but today with the most of tho larger
mercantile houiesjiitliatsectlon, most the
ruhtdentfl'tn'tliHt portion ofvho city, and
mosfof the travel gradually but cojutnntly
tnovlug In that direction, it is considered by
all long-headed teople to bo a very wise And
far seeing move ou thu p Art of Mr. Odell,

years wou an enviable reputation- It ihh
always catered to tho best element of tmVij

The uew place will tie all refitted with new
furnishings nnd the dining hull will look even
better than the one just about to be vacated,
while the seating capacity will lie almost as

The eloscnuwM with which tlio center of

linn been less than 10 mlnutea, while the

a movement of longitude of nearly 0.0
Assuming tho westward movement to

nnd 1880-00, 48 miles, a total westward
