Tbo readers of The Lincoln Courier
will hare an opportunity commencing
Monday next, October 28th, of seeing a
greater number of the celebrated trotting
and pacing horses of thecountry than ever
before and at far less expense than is
usually incurred in attending the aver
ago county fair.

sociation of Lincoln, Neb., will hold
their opening meeting at the new mile
