II is true that Blankenburg's Excol
sior saloon is now one of tlio institutions
of the city. All dritikors who liko really
excellent liquors whiskies, wines, beer,
otc. go to tho Excelsior Riloon, which is
fitted up in splendid stylo. Hlankonburg
who knows how to keep a saloon, spreads
a lino froo lunch every morning and eve
ning, and, um lio forcibly expresses it,
'.Sweetens tlio lunch wit'i music." Ho
lias employed tho services of a flrst-rnto
pianist, wlio make tho grand piano
which stands in ono ond of tlio saloon
speak out in musical tones. Everybody
is invited. The bast ordor is maintained,
and all improper characters suppressed
with neatness, clionpness and dispatch. Ev
erybody knows that tho Excolsior saloon
is at M'o cornurof Wnshlugton avenue and
