Arrangements have been made for a lectnro in
Lincoln by the greatest of all Arctic exploiers, Dr.
Fridtjof Nansen. Dr. Nansen is Glling 10.; nights in
America under the management of the Kidpath
Lyceum Bureau and has made a phenominal suc
cess. His great achievements together with his
striking and magnetic personality have combined to
produce the immense popularity of the tour In
London 13,'mio people attended one lecture, while
sir h large crowds have gone to hear the celebrated
Norwegian in America that in some of the leading
cities the sale of tickets has had to be stopped to
prevent so larg a crowd from entering the opera
houses as to endanger the public safety.
It is a stereopticon lecture on "Trip of the Frara,"
There are 150 views, which were taken by Dr. Nan
sen himself. The views represent different scenes
in the journry of the party from the time they set
out till Nanscu with a single companion reached a
pwintiSi miles from the pole, which is 25'f miles
nearer than any one else has ever gone. The object
of the trip of the Fram was to make scientific obser
vations and Dr. Nansen explains different results
in away that is highly interesting.
Dr. Nansen is the author of a work on the. nerves
which is the standard in England and Garmauy to
day. He speaks every European language fluently
and is such a thorough master of Euglish that every
word is elearlv understood.
Most of Dr. Nansen's dates in America have been
filled in the great cities. Ho has seldom appeared
in a place as small us Lincoln but the management
have decided to give a lecture hero on the way west
The date of the lecture will be Jan 10. It will be
given at the Oliver Theatre.
