Mr. Damroscli "has sense enough to
wear his hair as ordinary men," while
the Call'tt artistic soul is stirred to the
depths hyucoutcmplatlniior the young
musician's legs. The Call says: "Words
cannot measure the dltllculty which an
aesthetic audience would have in ap
preciating an orchestra performance ir
the divine compositions of licet lioven
and Wagner If they had before their
eyes at the same time u director with
bowed legs and pigeon toes." Mr.
Ditinroscli will doubtless long cherish
tho recollection of the fact that his mu
sic, Ills legs, and his hair being weighed
in tho balance before u Lincoln audi
ance, were declared strictly au fait by
tho newspaper critics, particular stress
being laid on tho hair and the legs.
Ji'HT now the newspapers of this
country are being run on tho baking
powder plan only the plan Is iimpll
lled until ono is fairly dazzled by tho
muultlceuco of philanthropic publish,
ers. Tito purchaser of a newspaper
today Is liable to receive as n gift any
thing from a paper covered novel to a
deed to a quarter section of tho moon.
Pianos, watches, life Insurance policies
and what not, are scattered around
with bewildering liberality, and If this
sort of thing continues there will soon
bo no necessity for stores. If a beef
steak Is wanted, or a paper of pins, or
ti gin 11.., a messenger will bo sent to
tho nearest newspaper otllco for a cou
pon. Perhaps, also, medical aid will be
furnished by means of coupons, and
coupons may bo issued passing the
bearor by St. Peter. In this city the
State Journal and New are trying to
seo which can do tho most for the dear
people, and in tholr eagerness there is
danger that they may give themselves
away, If they have not already done so.
Tho average newspaper is worth a good
deal more than tho juice paid for it,
and thoro is no nioro reason why a
newspaper publisher should go Into the
gift business than there would bo for
a bank to present Its depositors with
diamond pins or royal Bengal tigers.
The attendance at tho world's fair

plOted Ulltil July 1, People are not
fond of paying good money to witness
tho unpacking of boxes and lHiukaues.
Another reason Is that tho manage-'
ineitt of the fair has to some extent
queered tho great exhibition by the,
quarreling that has been going on al
most Incessantly for months. Ono of
tho best ways to kill an undertaking
like tho world's fair Is toget upaseries
of rows, and tho fuirjniinngors havo
manifested marked zeal in this respect
mid tho fair has only begun. The
third and perhaps the principal reason
why tho people have kept away from
Chicago may bo found in the misguided
policy of tho railroad companies. Tho
fair cannot bo a success uuloss tho
railway companies mako better rates,
and tho sooner they concede to the
popular demand the better it will be
for them. At the Centennial exhibi

It seems that the run on the Ne

ton great extent by one or two excita

protected by a bond for nearly ten

Just now, the responsibility Is largely

The banks that have failed have been
blinds for the private manipulations of
men like Ziuiti Dwiggiits and C. W.

legitimate business are as safe to-day
as they over were, and as long as there
is a reasonable degree of public confi
dence there is not the slightest possible
danger, llitsluess is good the country
over and there ought not to bo any
occasion for alarm. If the people who

there will be no serious trouble. The
danger is that the fools who cry lire In
a theatre have their counterparts in
the business world, ami too many peo
