A promlneut movement ha develood
among local wheelmen for the organization
of n wheel club in Lincoln. In the. old day
when there were scarcely moro than n scoro
of blcyclo riders in the city thorn win surh
an organization in existence, but In duo lima
it declined through mismanagement or lack
of management, and at length gave up tho
ghost. Thero aro now between 500 and TOO
wheels owned In Lincoln, probably u fifth of
them being used by ladles. J. K. Howo of
tho Journal has inaugurated a movemont
for tho organization of it wheel club and Is
meeting with enthusiastic encouragement
among wheelmen. About soventy-ilvo have
tlgniflf-d their deslro to become members. It
Is proposed to rent n cottngo somowhoro on a
paved street, wherein rooms can bo estab
lished to bo frequented by wheelmen from
early morning until a reasonable hour ut
night, where luncheon can bo secured and
other comforts ufforded, It Is proK)8cd to
extend tho privileges of tho club rooms to
ladles during specified days In thu week, It
is hoped that deflnito arrangements may bo
effected for tho organization in timo to er
mit its members to glvo n wheelmen's pu
rado during tho state fair.
Tho sanitary commission, which recently
levied a four mill tax to be applied to tho
straightening ot Salt Creek, appears to havo
fallen into a deep and abiding sleep. Them
Is no reason why tho work proposed should
not begin at once, as the commission can now
raise tho money ft needs simply by issuing
its warrauts. If any work Is to bo done in
that direction soon, a most favorable season
is at hand for Its accomplishment, itud peo
plo who uro called iioii to pay tho tax levied
will bo more gratified to sou it utilized than
to realize that it may accumulate where somo
public olllclal may enjoy n fat rato of Inter.
est upon it as a loan to some banking insti
tution. This sanitary commission has exhlb
ited a desire to seo some work done toward
straighteiilng Salt creek, even when citizens
were apparently not nt all anxious. Now
that tho levy has been modo, it is tho citizens
who oro likely to bo anxious, and tho com
missioners may reasonably expect to bo
punched up occasionally.
The folding bed, which has made such rap
id strides Into impular favor during tho past
four or flvo years, is not without its draw
backs and disadvantages, especially In the
hotels. W hen not in use it would be difficult
to recognize in some of these modern designs
anything upon which tired humanity might
find rest. One day last week n guest at tho
Capital was shown to his room by a bell-bey,
who carefully unfolded tho beds, of which
there were two in tho room, for tho use of
the rural stranger. The next evening the
guest, when ho f ecured his key, remarked
that tut knew the room and need not be
shown up. In due time, however, he pre
sented himself again to the clerk, and it was
at once apparent front his looks that he was
out of humor. This is nothing surpriribg,
however, to a hotel clerk, but when the guest
assigned his reason tho clerk' was not only
surprised, but upon reflection considerably
"Didn't I pay you for a bed!" queried the
"You certainly did," was tho reply.
"Well, what do you mean) Last night
there were two beds in my room, Tonight
I find that both beds have been removed and
two organs put in."
That guest will never relate how inconceiv
ably little he felt when the bell-boy accom
panied him again to the room and unfolded
for hi m one of the "organs" as a fountain of
tired nature's sweet restorer, balmy sleep.
Beginning Monday next the most success
ful and largely attended state fair.eyer held
in Nebraska .will be witnessed in tills city.
Secretary Furnas and his corps of trained
assistants, who have been holding forth in
offices at tho Hotel Lincoln, havo never ex
perienced an) thing like the deluge of entiles
that has ktpt them working night and day
during the past week. Aud this in Bplte of
the fact that there have been no sensational
attractions advertised. Outsldo of tho novel
exhibit! ons by the re-uniop of state hands
and tho 10,000 to be distributed in speed
purses, tlime are absolutely no novelties, ex
cepting tlja fttst Days of ' PoniiKill," which
is in rio wntfconnecfaU with the fair. Hut
the entries in nil lines, agricultural, mechan
ical, artistic ahd otherwise, have swelled In
to uuex)cted proportions, ami with fair
weather theio can be no doubting that the
attendanco will keep pace. The effort made
to secure tome sensational specimen of turf
royalty for exhibition on the track during
the fair has developed one fact that Is thnt

which is opposed to foielgueis and Catholics,
but It will meet with favor among foreigners

His fears have been fruitful of ono good re

cumulations of filth in alleys and other de
positaries, und giving tho people just ilvo
days in which to abate all violations of sani

premises they may save embarrassment and
unnecessary expense by cleaning it nwny at

becoming frightened over thu likelihood of

promises of Mr. Henry It. Eckor ot Lincoln,
Neb., fulfilled with Miss Lillian Tenbroeck,
only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Hunt

evening, at their well known Second avenue
home, amid the presence of a largo number
ot the friends of tho family, as well as somo
of those of the groom, who had reached tho
city in response to pretty wedding invita

pale bluo crystal silk, cut round neck and
pointed train. It was handsomely trimmed
with laco aud a lover's knot gave grace and
finish to the back. The bride carried a hand
ome white ostrich fan and wore blue kid
gloves and slippers. She has been compli

beauty and accomplishments, yet she never
looked more lovely than last evening. The
bridesmaid was costumed in cream silk, V

with French lace. A beautiful laUy, she
never looked prettier, and many admiring

When all had extended their well-wishes
and departed, busy preparations were
made for Mr. aud Mrs. Ecker to
take the early train for Chicago. A f ter vis

will spend a -week or two In this pretty
northern resort enjoying all tho pleasures
the country place will afford. From there
t)iey go to Mlnnetonka, Minnehaha, Minne

where they will be at homo after September

Clinton, where she has lived since childhood,

groom is a stranger In Clinton. He has spent
several years of his lite in Lincoln, Neb.,

The )ast week has been n busy ono at
lule Meyac& Co.'s popular store. State
fair orders aud seekers for state fair supplies
havo crowded in on tho largo force of gentle
manly clerks until the place was a veritible
Jieehlve. Low prices and goods always as
represented Is what counts in the long run
and thus the trade becomes accustomed to the
methods of L. Meyer & Co.'s dealings They
seldom even ask the price of goods anymore,
knowing by past expeilence that tho firm has
but one price aud that the lowest; that a
man buys no cheaper than a child and there
fore all get the same treatment. You never
hoar ot anything stale, or impurec coming
from Meyer's groery departmentno, thoy
sell too many goods for that. Fresh goods
constantly take tho place of those sold, mid
It don't pay to pan off impure edibles on
first-class trade. You'll probably Umve a

como back from woodland nnd seaside, to
swelter In tho tail-end of thu heated season.
Thu most pronounced popular success was
no doubt achieved by Miss ICatio Emmett, n
In Ightfaced magnetlu lady uf very ngrccahlo
IMirmimllty, who at oucu danced and sang
herself into Immense metropolitan favor In a
new play called Kllliiruey, written for ho
by Con. T. Murphy. Thoro has been no bet
ter Irish' play seen In Gotham since the days
when Hoticlcault walked on the same stage In
his great successes, and the Star theatre has
Issen packed In consequence. It Is in many
degrees twtter than tho usual Irish drama.
Miss Emmett I" graceful and natural in all

Union Square theatre by Mr. McKee Ran
kin and Frederick Ilryton is sure to win suc
cess and be ranked with Mr. lUnkln's great
est successes, "Tho Daultes" and "The Can
nuck." It is the story originally provided
by Mr. Ople P. Held in a very clever man
ner, and most of the character bits in the
play are exceedingly well rendered. Mr.
Rankin looks and plays the part of tho Colo
nel to perfection, and Mr. Hryton's work Is
tho very best ho has been seen in, On the
first night there were a few hitches In the
performance and at least two ot the people
have tteen miscast. When this J remedied
and, the play runs smoothly Its worth will be
appreclatoU, aud as to its ultimate success,
both as a work of itrt nnd as a money pro
ducer, there is absolutely no doubt.

slon of vaudeville specialties, the latter n
coiutsly done some years ago in New York
by Erlo lluiley and an English company. If

The engagt meiit of Johti'1'. Kelly, the star
of the "McFeo of Dublin" company, nt
Fuuko'n opia house next week, recall an In
cident that befel him in Sacramento, Oil.,
last season when ho was starring in "U and
1.' This was the way of It: Mr. Kelly sings
a topical song, the tefiuln of which runs to
tho effect that "thciu aio moments when I'd
like to be alone." In order to give Iho sung
u local favor the comedian geueially found
out tho weakmvsM-s of several prominent kh
plo in tho town and at ulgit the audience
was told In verso a(Al melody under what
conditions aud clrcuiiistaiicos John Doe aud
lUcliunl Hihi "would liku to be alone,"
He was In tho bllllHiil loom of the Golden
.-v ,',s ,.-i i . r v::. r.
Eagle hotel when ho heard ono of his victims
exclaim that if ho could only catch sight ot
Kelly he'd put daylight through him. Kelly
heard this most distinctly and therefore
made tracks aud succeeded In eluding his
pursuer. Next morning thn company went
to tho dcHt to take tho train for Sail Fran
cisco, There stood John Doo with blood still
In his eye. The air was biting cold, but cold
air is preferable to cold lead, so Sir, Kslly
hid behind n water tank for twenty minutes,
In tho iiieontlino a considerate member of the
company told tho man who thhsted for goru
that the comedian hint concluded lo remain
in Saciameiito until tho next train, Tho lire
eater Immediately marched up town to con
tluuu his chase, while Mr. Kelly Immediately
hoarded thu l'ullmaii nud locked himself in
tho drawing room,
The grand formal opening of the Fuuku oc
curs tonight nud certainly no bolter attract
lou could havo been secured for Iho occasion,
Thu bill will bo Mr, Downing' superb trag
edy, "The Gladiator," which will Iks given a
most brilliant nnd careful presentation, Mr.

orious artists, equal to tho best that walk
the boards. The sulu of reals has been largo
and tho oiciilug promises to bo a gala event.
Wo present on our first pugo this week tho
portrait of n lady whose face and flguro ur.i
so familiar to theatre goeis throughout
America as to render It unnecessary to placo
her namo under tlm xirtralt. Shu Is not
only u handsome woman mid an excellent
nctris-s, but an accomplished vocalist and
musician as well. Her many mlmliers will
have an oportiiiiity this week of seeing her
iu n varied lino of charactcis, as four of Mil
ton Nobles' famous plays will bo presented
during this engagement. Monday nud Thurs
day thu new play, "For Huvenuu Only," will
bo given; Tuesday and Friday, "A Son of
Thespls." Iu this play Dolllo Nobles has an
Interesting and most lovable character Iu the
actor's daughter, Dorothy Goodall, which
sho plays with dudghtful abandon aud conta
gious vivacity. Wednesday ami Hatuntuy
thu bill will bo changed to "From Sim to
Son," Iu this Dolllo Nobles gives an exquis
ite performance of tho dual roloot Mablo Ar
inltiige, mother and daughter, ft Is a stage
realization that ono will uot encounter many
times during the lifetime of mi averago thea
tre goer. No ono who sees M rs. Nobles Iu tho
character of Mablo Armltago Is likely to soon
forget tho pretty picture of purity nnd Inno
cence sho presents. To the man ot thu world
who has come In contact with life on this sin
stained earth in nil its phases, It seems like
tho glimpse of an angel, a breath of heaven,
a vision or u dream, rather than reality.
The man who has g.izod upon thu picture
must indeed Ihi a hardened wretch If he Is
not touched by it.
This Is tho attraction nt the Fuuku Monday
and Tuesday evening, preceded by a one-act
curtain raiser, "Why?" written by Burr
Mcintosh, a former Pittsburg newspaper
man. Louis DeLnuge and Will S. Rising
branched out as stars lust season in this
bright aud humorous musical farce which is
from the French. The namo is appropriate,
as tho entire rtntmtitii jtenoue is kept thor
oughly at cross purines aud most, hoiielessly
tangled up through two a:ts, and are liarely
given a chance to get thomselves identified

that the two stars, Mr. Rising c-secially,
