A Lincoln newspaper man was yes
terday asked to read a printed article
ami give an opinion as to its merits. He
read it aud denounced U as the w orst
piece of rot he had read for months, and
wondered if the idiot who wrote it was
still at large. When he heaped upon it
all the contumely he had with him, the
man who gave him the article whispered
something to him, and the Lincoln news
paper mail looked as cheap as though he
were offered for sale at a junk shop. He
stammered and laughed convulsively.and
kicked l.inuelf real hard. The Lincoln
ne.vspaper man had written the article
himself a few months ago. Liucol Jour

To the Friends and Patrons of the
Y- L. R R A.
Realizing that the work our associa
tion has carried on for the past four years
can more fully and more satisfactorily
be continued should we unite our efforts
with th'we of the Y. M. C. A., we have
decided to close our reading room Oct.
12, and transfer our reading material,
furniture, etc., to th- reading room of
the Y. M. ('. A., in the new Anheuser
Ruseh building, corner Main and I'oiutli
streets. This room will still be open to
the general public, ladies included, for
the purpose of exchanging books, oue
afternoon of each week, (afternoon to be
hereafter designated), and all library
tickets now out will be honored at the
Y. M. C. A. room until the expiration of
the time for which they were given.
We expect to continue our organiza
tion as heretofore, with the aim in view
of adding to the circulating library as
our means will permit.
We trust most sincerely that the ninny
who have shown us such kindness will
foci the same or greater interest iu this
new work, which we feel will accomplish
much more good th m we would have
been able to do.
