Fred Lawrence, ono of Amei lea's most
popular circus press agents, was n Lincoln
visitor Wednesday, and tho effects thereof
has already been noticeable lu tho city pa
pers, heralding tho coming of Damum &
Bailey circus, mention of which is also
made in our amusement columns today. Law

paugh and Uarnuin for so long that the
writer's memory fails to remember just how
many yoar ago It was that he made his Ini
tial trip. He visited Nebraska the first time
lu that capacity, before Lincoln was a town,
and tells some interesting stories of circus
life iu the early days of western settlement.
He has known such prominent newspaper
men ai Gere, Rosewator and other iu No
braska since their inception in the business,
and speaks of tho former as having called
upon him when he was grinding out a little
country newspaper twenty years ago lu a
town called Nebraska City. Mr. Lawrence

Something new in the way of a party was
given at wauuesha ltit week. About forty
adles were present aud each wore upon her
dress some article repiesentlng a literary
work. One lady wore two tiny flags in her
hair, representing, of course, "Under Two
Flags." Another carried a burnt match, sug
gesting "The Light that Failed." A silver
dollar was carried conspicuously declaring
a trutn In the title, "Our Mutual Friend."
One lady carried a doll's shoe with a loose
heel, "Lucilo." Btltl another wora a large
card with the one word, "Because," written
upon It, briefly telling "A Woman's Reason."
Next to the Roman Catholics, says the
New York Sun, the most uumerou body of
Christian believers in the United State are
the Metbodista, with the Baptist closely fol
lowing, In these three churches aloue are
gathered about three-quarters of the entire
number of professing Christians, or, in round
number, about IS.OUO.OOO out of 30,000,000
in the whole population, acoordlag to the
"7T4gHMp a '"fca
enumeration of the last census. They are
also the churches which are advancing the
moat rapidly, though all of them adhere
strictly to their standards of faith, and make
lio concession to the present pantheistic and
agnostic ten Inncles. Tho episcopal address
to the Methodist conference now in session at
Omaha, report that since tho last meeting ot
tho body, or lu four years, nearly 450,000 er
son have been added to tho denomination, a
number not much less than tho whole num
bor of communicants of the Episcopal church,
aud equal to about one-third of the total
Presbyterian communion. Yot the branch
of the Methodist lepnwented at Omaha com
prises only almut ono-half of tho Methodist
family, Northern nnd Southern, white and
black. During tho same short period tho
value of tho church property has Increased
by nearly onoflflh, nnd the contributions to

"Who nro the Astor anyway"! asks a Von
Nobody in a Now York apor. Una I In

In this rapid ago ot advancement 'we nood
bo surprised at nothing, but yot we daily
stop to marvel at tho work ot science nnd
tho arts, nnd at tho Improvement wonder
and query, "Well, what next"! But while
science bos been at work on the hundred nnd
ono contrivances, photography has by no
menus been neglected or forgotten, but to
the contrary has kept in full pace with the
inarch. The Dallmejer lens, than which
there are no more wonderful or accurate,
have demonstrated the fact most clearly.
Formerly It was deemed Impossible to get a
perfect llfo-sUe likeness in any other than
crayon, water color or pastel make. Late
Improvements however go to show that this
Is not the case. There is practically but one
way to secure a true likeness and that I via

wondrous skill, execute a most oxcollent re

photographer's present superb machines.

CHICAGO G0KS VISITING.
I Hpeclat Courirr Correspondenco.1
Chioaoo, May 10, 1803.
DRAn Courirri Having been away from
Chicago over a week I shall not be able to
give you nows of this great city this time,
but with your termision I shall tell you
where I have been and what I have done
since you last heard from me. My letter
will interest college circles anyway, whether
It does any one else or not. One week ago a
party of college girls, of which I was a mem
ber, took the Ilock Island train for Minneap
olis to attend the Interstate oratorical con
test. Wo were gottiug on splendidly when
suddenly the train stopixxl short apparently
not to go again for some time, We got off
the train and discovered that wo were at
Auburn, one of Chicago's pretty suburbs,
and that tho cause of the delay was a dei
railed freight car across the track just ahead
of our engine. As we wero in no particular
rush we rather enjoyed watching the wreck
ers work to get rid of that superfluous freight
car. The conductor of our train tried to
frighten u by saying thnt the train would
isavo us, as it would certainly start before
we could get back. One of the girls started
to run, but I called her back and said "wo
will walk right along with tho conductor and
have ample time," and, will you believe met
ho was angry and refused even to bo recon
ciled by the offer ot some very proclous can
dled cherries. This delay and two wash-outs
caused people who wishod to got to Peoria,
nnd who missed connection with the other
train in consequence thereof, to think somo
very emphatic words, while we merely smiled
and smiled and were villains. We arrived
at St. Paul next day three hours late, and to
gretted that three hours afterwards when we
came to leave, for we were treated royally
during our visit and consequently begrudged
all time lost St. Paul is a beautiful place,
as is also Minneapolis. We were entertained
by friends in tho capital city. The contest
was held in tho metropolis, In driving
around the two cities It was hard vto decide
which was the prettier. The only way we
could do was to do as the Romans did. If we
wero in Minneapolis wo preferred it, in St.
Paul 'twas the only place In our minds
where life was worth living. In all honesty,
though, personally, I prefer St. Paul. The
day of the contest, May 5, we spent at the
college, where we were cordially welcomed.
The University of Minnesota Is a very
flourishing institution, with handsome build
ings, large campus, a fine faculty and nearly
1,500 students. Prof. Conway McMillan was
the first friend wo met. We scarcely knew
him. Had it not been for his walk the
portly yea, verily I gentleman in a stun
ning corduroy suit would have been passed
without recognition. But in spite of bis 102
pounds and added Importance, thoro was no
mistaking that walk, aud we grasped hi
hand eagerly nnd were soon being conducted
through his handsome deartment, that ot
botany. Tho college chapel was ruined by
flro last week, and so wo did not see it, as tho
devotional exorcises wore held in the pretty
little Y. M. C. A. building. Tho parlors
were not seen nt their best either, as nil tho
curtains, carpets and furnishings had been
taken away the night of the conflagration.
Wo regret to say that it Is rumored that our
friend, Con. McMillan, so far lost his head
thnt ovening as to rush frantically forth,
leaving his charming little wifo to make her
escape from tho burning building as best sho
could. Our party dined that ovoniug at tho
cafe in the top story of the Guarantee Loan
building, which is without doubt tho hand
somest office building in the northwest. Im
mediately after dinner we went to tho Ly
ceum theatre where tho contest was held,
aud there the fun had already begun. Col
lege yells, class calls and fraternity songs
echoed through the hall, while the large au
dience congregated. An unfortunate thing
happened just before the program was be
gun. All over the house tho gas was eecap
lug and somehow those in charge of the
building could not get it turned off, and
many ladies were overcome by tho terriblo
fumes and carried out nearly or quito insen
slble. Gene Brown and Mr. Skilos spied us
out, also Wayland Wilson, Mr. Winters nnd
o le othir Wvsleyan man, whoso name I have
forgotten, nnd we all gave tho University of
Nebraska yell. It created quito a stir as but
few people there had ever heard It.
Tho president then came upon the plat
form and made a speech that Is lie tried to
make n speech. It was tho most ludicrous
thing I evorheaid. It reminded ono of a
great comedian's curtain talk, only this was
not Jest, 'twas that awful thing called stage
fright. When he finished, the audience was
convulsed. Ho waited until the voclferjus
cheering died away when he said, "I trust
the orators will not seat anyone during the
performance," Wo simply roared, and the
poor fellow vainly Btrived to think what he
had said to cause such hilarity, He then had
"tho exquisite pleasure of Introducing to the
audlen.-o the first oiator of the evonlng, Mr.
J. L. Postou ot Kansas-," as ho said this he
turned to the right flies and looked anxiously
for the orator, who approached with digni
fied step toward him at Ids left. A reporter
frantically beckoned him to turn around, but
he did not Mem to comprehend, so that the
orator bad to pluck him by the sleeve to get
him to turn around. Mr. Postou labored
under great disadvantages as ho had to wait
until the merriment subsldol. Ha did well,
however, as nearly all ot them did, but Jean
Nelson was head and shoulders abovo them
all. She was simply flue, and as each orator
spoke and retired theaudlenco know that sho
was still ahead, and so It was till the tenth
man had been heard. Tho applause when tho
decision was announced was such as only col
lego people ran give. It was deafening.
Fiiday afternoon tho Kappa Kappa (Jam
ma fraternity gave Miss Nelson a reception,
to which I was bidden, of course, as a mem
ber of tho best fraternity lu the land. It was
a very pretty company, given at tho beauti
ful homo ot tho Misses McDonald, and was
thoroughly enjoyed by all ot us. Miss Nelson
lore her honors modestly iu a t ecomlng
manner. Friday eveulng the banquet was
glvenattheWebt hotel where, bolt ald to
the everlasting dlsgriKo of the Minnesota
boys, theie were but few rosebuds In the
midst of many thorns few ladles being bid
den to tho "feed." It was the first oratorical
banquet for many years wheio eveiy gen
tleman lias not been accompanied by his best
girl. The St. Paul zither club was invited
by the host to lender selections for us at his
home Saturday evening, and the music was
lovely. A singularly sweot instrument is the
either, nnd when nine or ten of them are in
the hands ot us many expert players, tho 10
lull Is divine harmony.
Wo left St. Paul Sunday evening with
much regret, feeling as if we were more than
repaid for our long tedious tup there and
baok, as once again wo were delayed by
washouts, arriving home several hours late.
While lu Minneapolis I called on Miss Jen
ule Kruso, who is tho same, pretty, charm
ing young woman who used to be so popular
in Lincoln. I mot the McCalgs at tho con
test also. Many good Methodists will re
member them, 1 am sure. They spoke cor
dially of tho plennunt jears tboy had spent lu
Lincoln. We who used to bo there and aro
now of other communities thoroughly aupre-
ciate our own beloved city, the capital of
1 among tlio rest.
