former management, and falling short
in none. A gentleman who was a guest
of the house a few days Ago said to tbe

ment the Capital Hotel at tbe reduced
rate of 82 00 per day is one of tbe most
popular and best patronized hotels in
the city of Lincoln, it i? furnished with
every comfort aud eonveni nee for its
guests, and the cuisine department is
certain to please the epicurean. There
can be found no better place to stay for

quiring if the Vanderbilt lines would
.convey donated corn, corn products

ftuSerers without charge. He said,
"We hope to be able to forward 60 car
loads from this state." While this
scheme was on foot the Governor and
the Mayor of our capitol city were
foreed to call a meeting to consider the
starving suffering poor of Lincoln, and
Omaha laborer's families were in equal
or greater distress. We simply want
to call attention to our industrial com

ables one class in the state to give Rus

not guide our footsteps nor observe
the beauies of nature; without the ear
we could not hear tho voices rr our
friends nor enjoy tho sweet sounds of
music. No one is so helpless as the
blind and more deserving of pity than
the dt af. These two senses, being so
valuable should be guarped as we guard
our life. Many persons lose sight or
hearing by neglect, which timely aid
m'ght prevent. Among the specialists
who treat these organs none have been
more successful than Dr. Denn's whose

been in the employ of the big furniture
dealers, Gruetter & Co. was deaf in one
