Tho luxurious parlors of the stately J street
mansion of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. ImliofT wero
draped in tho symbols of mourning last Sun
day ami the awolnnplrltig emblem of tho
black and whlto rosette fluttered from tho
massivo doors. Snowy flowers of deliouto
perfume wero tanked upon tho tables, and
nrouud tho cnblnet pictures, resting on tho
mantel was twined a wreath of bright green
verdure. For death had dared to enter
even that pretty and pleasant home, and
claim from Hniong Its Inmates tho ono whoso
leaso on lifo had seemed most secure. Dr.
Joseph U. Imuoft breathed his last atll:ir
Saturday night at tho early ago of SM years,
10 months and S3 days. Deceased was born
In Nebraska City and camo to tills city with
his pai cuts when but six years old. Tho
golden days of his Ixiyhood were spent in
Lincoln, and as a !oy ho is rememliorcd by
his countless friends, and tho friends of his
(Mirents, with warm feelings of affection and
odmiiatlou. He is remembered as a good
boy, a manly, studious uud dutiful son
whose memory is ever fragrant of affection
and kindness. After graduating from tho
Lincoln high school ho entered the Pemuyl
vanla Military Academy, where ho won first
rank lu scholarship. He had wonderful ap
plication anil was a close and apt student,
and at the close of his courso at tho Jefferson
Medical college of Philadelphia, where he
went to fit himself for his chosen profession,
his superior sUtalnments were attested by
tho bestowel upon him by tho faculty of tho
gold medal, a mark of rare merit. Ho fur
ther prepared himself by a courso of hospi
tal work In Now York and uftor a reason
able time spent in travel settled down to the
practice of his profession at Hoanoke, Va.
His merit as a physician wo soon recognized
and a large practice was growing constantly
larger and more Imperative in its demands
upon his attention and skill. In his zeal to
ensure the health of others he neglected his
own and even continued to practice after he
was stricken with typhoid fever until the
forobearance of neglected nature was ex
hausted. Whfn he Anally was forced to
succumb, be was ready to come home to die,
for he was aware of his danger. A friend
accompanied him on the long journey, and
when he reached tho home of his parents
there was no longer any hope of his recovery
even with the tenderest and most skillful
care. The obsequies occurred Tuesday after
noon and were very Impressive. Dr. C. C.
Losby of St. Paul church returned from Col
orado to conduct the ceremonies, which
were attended by a largo concourse of friends
nicludlng many families of early residents in
Lincoln. The casket was Ixirno to the grave
by Messrs. Will Hardy, Harry Peckham, W,
0. McArthur, Daniel Wing and Dr. Finney,
while Misses Thoo. Laws, Clara Walsh, draco
Grifilii and Jo Winger bore to the grave the
rich and numerous floral offerings. Tho
death of this promising young man has been
n severe affliction to his parents, who have
the sincere sympathy of all acquaintances.
At last enterprise lias touched one of Lin
coln's most promising potslbllities and a com
pany has been formett for the erection of a
sanitarium or bath house In which tho medi
cinal propel ties of the salt water abounding
here are to be utilized for the physical bet
terment of suffering mankind. For years it
has been known, wrhaps more generally
abroad than hero at home, that tne brine
that has bubbled so freely from natural and
artificial surface outlets in this vicinity pos
sesses medicinal powers rarely equalled in
mineral waters, and some local firms have
for years realized a substantial revenue from
the shipment of the water abroad In jugs.
Many people from Chicago and other poInU
who in their travels have chanced to enjoy
warm baths in Lincoln salt water, have been
known to make periodical trips to this city
to renew them, claiming that they were
more beneficial for certain classrsof ailments
than any baths or remedies they had encoun
tered anywhere else. In the tieutmeut of
such ailments as skin diseases and blood
poisoning some local physicians have aston
ished e eu themselves by the cures they huve
been enabled to effect by the use of the warm
sail baths. With these evidences of the won
dei ful efllcncy of this water known to hun
dreds of people, the only wonder is that it
has remained until this late day awaiting
the lecognition or men of means, enterprise
aryl Bclentinattalnnieute to develop It. All
that Is necessary to develop the healthglvlpg
properties of this water Is to warm it and
put It where it can be used.
The company just organized comprises Dr
M. II. Everett, Dr. H. M. Garten, Dr. J. O.
Everett mid Mr. A. C. Zlemer. They have
purchased two lotr on tho southeast corner
of Fourteenth and M streets, a decidedly
pleasant and convenient location, and have
all eady begun the erection thereon of a hand
some structure covering the entire ground,
100x142 feet. It will bo two stories above
ground with a basement, equipped with
every facility and comfort for giving MO
baths per day, Tuiklsh, Honinn, Russian,
massage and electric, or sits, shower or
plunge. The plung bath will be 40x150 feet
in the clear and from two and one-half to
eight feet deep. Each floor will be separated,
one side being reserved for lady patrons.
The structure, a handsome one, will be of
an attractive style of uichiteclure and tlie
alls hi e to be made of i ed rock-faced bi Ick
with ornate trimmings of red stone. It will
cost MO.OOO with equipments, which will be
as complete as money can make it. Dr. M,
II, Everett has spent some time recently to
the study of cmveulences in many similar
institutions In the east with a view of secur
ing the best. Henlso submitted wimples of
the water to men of scientific excrieuce, unci
it was Invariably pi ououueed to possess su
pel lor qualities. The new cempnny is culled
the Sulpho-Saline Until Company. There is
no potslble doubt of its sucters.
Lit coin citizens and isltors ore promised
a piodlglous u.mictil (Ciiililimtlon dining
fair week, An oigunlzntion termed u union
exists among Nebraska Iwinds, and large
cash prizes have been offered by the fair
managers for competition in music, oien to
bands belonging to tho organization. It Is
said that thirty or thirty -five bands will 1ms
present. It Is prOKsed to have them join
forces for a street arado or concert, and
the sensation promised the lover of muslo

There will be from !W0 to 3.W pieces, good,

Chicaoo, Aug. !M. You would smllo If

on a West Madison street cable car with a
noto look of pink lined paper balanced very
ndroltly on one knoo. Tho jieoplo with
whom I am trnnsMrted to nud from the city

tho subject of writing, I guess, as I nlways
havo my noto hook and pencil with mo

There Is but little difference. Is thoro not?
You behold In mo Jut nt this moment a
bitterly disappointed person. Tho reason I
Well I'll tell you. When I hoarded tho car
at Ln Sallo street, I noticed ono of tho pretti
est girls I ever saw In Chicago, or out of it,
sitting some dlstanco ahead with her faco
townrds me. Tho coloring of her counto
nanco was beautiful (and, moio surprising
fact In Chicago- erfectly natural) her
featured wore perfect. Sho was dressed
well, that Is fairly well, and her lint was a
"triumph of the mlllinor's art." I studied
tier, when I might without rudeness, nud I
came to the conclusion that sho was Just
charming. Hut woo is me! Sho rose to
leave tho car. Deluslonol Sho his the pro
verbial Chicago woman's foot; wears red
shoes, ahd her dress Is Just short enough to
mako very conspicuous tho fnct that she
turns her toes In when she walks. I turn to
these notes with a sigh. Who would have

Tho local papers speak dismally of the
"soup" that Chicago theatre goors havo hnd
dished up for weeks, One cannot hlntno
them. Of courso the summer season Is
usually not so brilliant as the legulnr season
but a series of attractions like the "Trip to
the Circus," "Natural Gas," "Itoyal Pass,"
"Nothing Hut Money, "The Junior Part
ner," and "Tho Volunteer," Is absolutely aw
ful to contemplate. Take the first men
tioned play It was nothing more nor less
than a clear steal from "Country Circus,"
nud it was not up to ft In any way. A
ballet at a circus, n circus on the stage, any
thing out of the usual line, is sure to catch
the crowds, but grows hopelessly stalo lu a
week or ten days. With all their Improve
ments (und they were numerous) "'A Trip to
the Circus," like t ho 'Volunteer." Is not a
good first class play. Mrs. Pacheco. who
wrote "Incog," which is clever, (never a
doubt of thnt,) miido a dire failure of "Noth

Lederer'B stock company that was pre
senting this at tho Grand has taken up a new
play this week entitled "Divorce Day," and
the paperr speak well of It. 1 havo not seen
It, so cannot tell you my opinion of it.
Speaking of opinions, ono of Chicago's boat
known dramatic men called at our olllce tho
other day when "Tho Junior Partner" was
first put on, and in a general theatrical cen
versutlnu I asked him what kind of a write
up lie would give it. Ho replied with great
gusto and much brevity, "Hoast." I asked
him If he had soon It. He replied that he
had not. but that every one else hail scored
It, and ho could not do anything else. I had
to smile. Such independence. In this case,
however, the "roast" was meilted. How
people with as much talent and as favorable
reputations dramatically f peaking as
Henry Miller, May Irwin, Hugh Tolaud and
Mr. McKco Ilankiu, can waste their tnnoon
a play like "The Junior Partner" remains a
mystery. The curtain raiser "Frederic
Lemaitre" is an exquisite little production,
but the main play Is grossly common, even
Wo shall soon have something better, in
fact, next week Frohmau's "Limt Paradise"
company will pluy a long engagement at tho
"Columbia." Their cast contains the name
of William Morris, and that to many of
Chicago's fair sex is a name to conjure by.
He is a splendid fellow, and it Is our inten
tion to hire a box for the whole engagement.
He takes a peculiar part for him who Is
prone to have puts assigned to him, that
represent him nt the top of the social ladder,
but lu this play he Is tho mill superintend
ent. This company will also preno it 11 new
play entitled "The Councilor's Wife," w lilch
is very highly sioken of by the dramatic
clitics. "All Haba" Is still succeeding. In
