As per announcement the Rev. T. DeWitt
Talmage made his uppearence Wednes
day and lectured to a vast audience on
the subject of 'Big Blunders."
He said among other, things that the
big blunders men make were found to be
first, the mistake of engaging in too many
occupations. "Jack of all trades" mas
ter of none. Second, the mistake of in
dulging in ill humor; third, the mistaki
of being discouraged under b id tr at

amusement, not the innocent laughter of
youth and manhood, but those amuse
ments that distract man from the com
mon duties of life. The next blunder is
the forming of the wrong kind of do

have the lovliest of wives. It a man i
cross and snappish and ugly in his hoiir-e

hell; when a woman marries it is more
so. Niluu.on says mat a good wire is

Nebraska State Fair and Exposition.
Lincoln, Seotember 5 to I 2. 1890
The time is drawing near, when tin
Nebraska state board of agriculture will
hold its twenty-fourth annual exposition,
under the new contract term for five
years, commencing this year 18J0. As
our leaders are aware, the fair will be
held on the same large and conimodiou
grounds adjoining the city of Lincoln, as
occupied the past five years. While
there already exists extensive and supe
rior accommodations, second to no other
in the country, more and better are being
provided for the coming fair. A visit to
the grounds finds a force of workmen
engaged in erecting a large entire new
and systematically arranged art hall; ad
ditions to agricultural hail, increasing its
space near double what it has been here
tofore; a new and enlarged poultiy
house; the state lish exhibit house en
larged rearranged, the water mains en
larged to furnish an increased supply of
pure water from the city water works;
the capacity of the ampitheatre will be,
enlarged, together with many other pre
parations to accomodate, among which
will be seals about the grounds win re
the wear3T may rest, shaded seats about
the show rings, and the like, for the
convenience of guests.
Every effort on the part of the manage
ment to bring out the products and show
the resouices of the s'ate is being made.
Especially in behalf of agricultural pro
ducts. This year, for county collective
exhibits, the premiums are:

From an interview with the secretary
we learn that negotiations are pending,
with promise, of putting a "fast stepper"
on the race track, that will chase two
minutes closer than ever before known I
on the Nebraska state fair, or any other
track in the world.
No pains will be spared this year to
make the coining fair and exposition su
perior in all respects to any of its prede
cessors. A general public interest is be
ing manifested of most encouraging
character. Live stock stables, stalls and
pens are being called for more than usual.
Speed purses are filling up nicely. The
two large purses one thousand dollars
each gurrantee, are already filled to over
flow. Space, too, in all the halls is large
ly engaged even at this date. The secre
tary says: "All looks big! If the clerk
of the weather smiles on us as usual the
fair of 1890 will eclipse all others in the
history of the state."
For information write the secretary,
Robt. W. Furnas, Brownville. "His
business" is to "difuse light and infor
mation' in fair matters.
E. W. Potteis the post master at Elm
Creek, Neb., says he has personal
knowledge of several cases of rheuma
tism, in that vicinity, that have been
permanently cured by Chamberlain's
Pain lialm, after other remedies were
used without benefit. He sold it at his

he never knew it to fail, that "any cus

Rheumatic Syrup Co., Jackson, MicTi:
Gents: In February, 1889, I com
menced using Uibbard's Rheumatic Syrup
and Strengthening Plasters for inflam
matory rheumatism, having been troubled
three years with this terrible disease. My
joints were swolen so that I could hardly
walk and I attended to my business with
difficulty. I used three bottles and ap
plied the plasters to my limbs and back,
and I can say that I am now cured. I
have not been troubled with rheumatism
since discontinuing its use. My father-in-law,
Mr. J. D. Skinner, of Manson, has al
so been benefitted by this medicine. We
earnestly recommend it to our friends.
Take my advice, give it a trial.
