Lincoln has weded base ball and tennis suffera.
"Baso Ball. Baso Ball today, at M. street Park."
The enterprising manager no longer needs to lubricate his throat
and make a noiso on O street daily to nppraiso tho people of tho
Every man, woman and child is u walking advertisement of our
baso ball team and can tell you anything you want to know vico
versa, about it. The towD is one largo aggregation of cranks juBt
now and tho "wheels'' all havo "base ball" writtdn between tho
The millionaire and the street Arab are on speaking terms when
either wishes to find out about tho gamo of the day.
This is one of tho many lienefits of having a base ball team, pro
vided it is a good one. Of course if we had to support an amalgama
tion of robbers such as-Omaha has with Mr. D. Rowe at tho head of
it, wo would bo properly ashamed of it But the feeling of good fel
lowship that obtains among base ball cranks is a good thing for the
community. If it was not for tho baso ball team just now, Lincoln
would perish from ennui.
Tho Lincoln boys are playing ball and the public is appreciative
as it always has been under like circumstances.
Jacksonville has one of tho best teams in tho association and it
will bo among the leaders in tho wind up. They aro superior to tho
Lincoln team in batting, and their fielding is of tho kind to delight
the cranks, even though it beats our favorites.
The crowd good naturedly "joshed" Con. Strouther when ho fann
ed in Tuesday's game, but the same crowd had due respect for him
when he lined out one to tho fence and brought in two earned runs.
He is one of the men who make a gamo lively from start to finish.
Lincoln needs a new short stop who can not only pick up the ball,
but one who can lino out a safe ono in an emergency. At such times
"Pick'' almost invariably "fans out." A strong batter in his place
would strengthen the team materially

Impure blood is the cause of innumerable maladies. Hence, one
of the greatest benefactions to humanity was the discovery of Ayer's
Sarsaparilla' which; more than jny other medicine, had saved Amer
ica from becoming a nation of invalids.
Tho fairest thing in all the world
Is tho light of the moon in tho seu;
For it flutters along like a ribbon unfurled
By u maiden's hum! in another world,
And crossed down hero to me.
Tho rose is fair in tho roso tree green,"
And tho violet sweet in tho grass;
But tho roso must dio, liko every queen.
And tho violet fades from her cloister green,
As the winds, lamenting pass.
Tho sunset is softly fair
When tho first white star appears;
But the light grows palo as tho iirelliea flush,
And tho primrose cloud forgets to bo fair,
And tho dewdrops shine like tears.
And passing fair is the slender maid,
Who springB liko tho lily tall;
But, though as a child she stands arrayed.
In her sheer white gown, she's a marble maid.
Unheeding tho sculptor's call.
So tho fairest thing in tho whole wide world
Is tho moon streak in tho sea;
For it falls liko a fairy's hair unfurled,
And always, wherever we go in tho world,
There's ono for you for me.
W. S. Moody.
