TlIK CuUHIKH which has just attained Its
seventh birthday, feels its iinortanco In
the community that has so generously
fostered It front tho very day of Its Incept
tlou. Its past pleasant relations with
Lincoln's most prominent citizens and thu
rellnod element of tho city 1ms never
lacked appreciation. That tho CoUlllKK has
always endeavored to merit such favors
its wero shown it by giving to tho people
a int.er worthy n place lu the most sacredly
guarded home, is npnreut to all that hnvo
noticed its growth ami awaited Its regular
visit each week for (.oven years. And now
with tho near advent of tho promising new
year nnd the occasion at hand of the joyous
Christmas tide, let us extend our thanks to
nil for their generous patronage and kind
words of encouragement and close with
wishing 0110 and all a merry, merry Christ

ample prosperity mid a full sharo of the
blessings of life.
Americans llko to make Chicago the butt
of their good natured ridicule because of its
unconventional habits, but once In awhile it
sets an oxample that the whole country might
emulate with beuellt to itself. For Instance,
the Chicago suiierliitemleut of K)lica has just
been disciplining a lot of ollicers for various
oirenscs. Not only were several discharged
for drunkenness, but this Ruperintemlaut ac
tuully had the courage to bounce a policeman
for maltreating 11 citizen. Utheiv were dis
charged or lined or suspended for using oli
sceno language or for conduct unlKjcoiuing
to an otllcer. It Is unrtitbouablo to expect
policemen to be Chesterfields, but the opera
tion f politics brings tough, coarse charac
ters into almost every force, men who are an
otl'eusu to decency, and It Is a hopeful sigh to
tlud a chief of police with tho nerve to dis
cipline these fellows. It doesn't follow that
this is a reflection on all policemen. Almost
every force hus men who nre worthy of the
warmest commendation for good sense uiid
devotion to duty.
.
We have heard a great deal nbout the mag
nitude of the coming world's fair, but as ev
ery man lu this country is expected to blow
his own horn some of us huve taken the glit
tering generalities put out by Chicago with
n Sgrnin of allowance, When she said it
would bo tho greatest on enrth those of us
who had been duly Impressed with the mar
vels of the Paris exposition of 188'J wero in
clined to receive thu Chicago boost with some
reservation. It Is a genuine satisfaction,
therefore, to have a statement In figures
which shows these claims to he true. Most
things In this world are relative, and we
Judge of them best by comparisons. Mr. K.
T. JeHery, a prominent world's fair ofllcial,
left Chicago a few days ago to look after his
interests in the Denver & HloOraude rail
road, of which he was recently elected presi
dent, and lu a brief interview he druw some
comparisons that are very fluttering to our
national pride.
The Purls exKsitioit grounds contained
'J.T8 acre?. Thu Chicago fair will lutvu (Mil
acres, ninety of which will be lakes, canals
and lagoons luld out with a view to tliu pret
tiest laudscit)u elTects. Chicago will huve a
lake froutugo of it mile and three ipiarters,
and visitors will be ublo totraNei'su a dis
tance of thrco mid three (piarter miles 011 thu
interior waterways. Thu main exhibition
buildings at Chlcugo will cover about 100
acres, while tho grand total of all buildings
will reach 1!I0 to HO acres. At Pails all
buildings covered ait area of only seventy
six acres. At Paris tho machinery hall was
the great distinctive structure. Its roof
spanned "M feut lu thu clear, at that time
the widest span over used for it roof truss.
At Chicugo tho building for liberal and In
dustrul arts will have it rou. span of 1175, and

cago fair will cost $17,000,000, to which fl.
000,000 or moro should Iw added for tho ex
penses of prlvnto Individuals, tho states and
thu general government. Tho probabilities,
therefore, areitlmt tho fair of 1 SKI will lw
far greater liijovery way than any similar
exhibition everlnlveu anywhere lu tho world,
and those who feltjhurt nt fato Iwcituso they
could not go to Paris two years ago should

In speaking tliu other day of girls at col
leges it lady who has Itcou there herself and
used her eyes and Intelligence to good ad
vantage said: "A girl will live 011 itlioiit half
as much its it 11111I0 collegian who maintains
tho same relative portion among his fellows,
A girl can Imj a 'swell' on fcl7ft U) 400 n year .
That Is, sho can not only hnvo all necessaries,
but she can entertain mid extend gracious
courtesies to friends, and those tiro things
that tiro very grateful to women. The prov
ident ghl in college shares a room with two
or threo companions, feasts oir crackers,
cocoa, eggs, cereals and other InexiM-nslve
food which sho prepares herself, and oven
indulges in an occasional 'spread' of tally,
olives or surdities. Men like to talk about
thu extra vagauco of women, but ouu of our
sex will livo better and moro coinportably on
11 small income than a man will. It is a ,guu
era! rule of college life that.incn nro always
In debt nnd very often leave school wllh it
big account to wipe out. It Is tho exception
to find a girl at college in uebt, ami sou
leaves school free of such obligations, some
times Hilly to marry n malo gruduato and to
economize to pay olT debts that ho contract
ed before they over know each other. At
Vassal' thu oor girl hits tin advantage lu be
ingitble todtnw ouu pin-money fund. It
was donated by a kind-hearted old New
Yorker to Imj used for the entertainment of
girls in need of assistance. Theieare money

enough to win scholarships and depend on
their darning baskets for money for little ex
tras. Parties aru constantly being iimdo up
for concerts, excursions and other eiitentafli
meiits, anil the poor girl who needs money to
join In thu fun can draw 011 tho pin-money
fund and none of the other girls aru the
wiser."
What n contrast llussia atrordsl Thu
hangers 011 at court aru collecting money for
a silver wedding present for tho empress nnd
projioso giving her n solid silver set of 'A)
pieces. In several parts of tho empire chit
preu nru dying because straw and rugs will
not sustain life. It Is only fair to tho em
press, however, to say that she had publicly
asked that Intending givers of presents should
donate tho money to tlie fund for tho relief
of the starving, but the scheming courtiers
have ambitious that aro too selfish to heed
thu sulferiug.
At Omaha thu other day I met it young
Russian who recently escaped from the hor
rors of Hlherluu exile. Ills arrival in this
country was niinouucisl u few weeks ago in
a dispatch from Victoria, Vancouver's Is
land. Tho exllo had been condemned to llf
teen years servitude in the mines of Kara be
cause ho dared to criticise the government of
his country. Hu Iki-o tho slavery of tho
mines for six years, and last spring escajMsl
from the penal colony. He btnrted east to
wards tho Pacific OceAil, traveling in 6tit of
thu way paths and under cover of might to
elude pursuit. After months of weary
tramping over a dlstaiico of neuily 800 miles
he leached tho coast and got pus.Migo on a
vessel to Jnptti, Among the murks by
which thullusslaii ollleliils Identified lihti was
11 bit of tattoo work on his left arm. Fear
ing that this might lead to his detection he
took u razor and deliberately sliced olT it
piece of skin and flesh to remove the danger
ous mark. It left it frightful scar which Is
not yet entirely healed. His ankles a No
bear thu sores Hindu by wearing iron chains.
At Yokalioma hu smuggled himself aboard
one of Iho big bteumers belonging to tho Ca
nadlun Pacific Una and remained concealed
for two days. Hu speaks French mid Polish
as well us Russian, and was able to 'ell his
story to thu captain, who then gave him
good euro and let hint go froo on iirrivlnj; lu
America, Ho 'immediately crossed over In
to thu United Htutes and took ou his first
naturalization papers. Ills description of
thu cruelty of Slberlun life tallies with Oeorgo
Keimaii's story, and hu says hu saw the
American traveler when nt the Kuru mines.
This exile was once condemned with another
convict to receive sixty laBhes from the
knout, mid his companion died after receiv
ing foity lushes, Tho uscuped exile was
seven months in reaching America. Ho is a
young, fairly good looking man with 11
smooth face, uxcept for it moustache. In h's
American attire ho has none of the tradition
al upjieurunce of it Russian, but there Is it
suggestion of the Uernuiu In his face. His
name is too much for 1110, either to pronounce
or to spell. Ho hus found a Russian or two
in Omuhii, ami of course there are plenty of
lx'oplo with whom hecitiicouversolii French.
A friend camo to 1110 the other day with it
circular advertising a very low priced set of
Dickens' w oiks offered for sulo by some un
known Chicago concern willing under n high
sounding name. The circular expatiated on
the merits of the great story writer and thd
desirability of having his works in every
household, hut it said very little, except lu
most genet ill terms, about the quality of
stock any workmanship lu the books. My
friend was enthusiastic bccutlsu of.the cheap
ness of the olfer and wanted to buy, but I
dissuaded him. Now this one little incident
has no particular Importance, hut it suggests
a few reiimi ks for tho baneflt of k those who
want to pofcM'ks staudnid works and aro
tempted by thu cheap prices of unknown con
cerns. In tho case mentioned above the

to over act; albeit he is digullhsl and inatily.

Palmer acquitted hlm-elf with great credit.
Tho suppoit wns not ot it high grade.

Miss Annie Davis us "lone" went attractive

All unquestioned anil unquestionable fact Is
that no production lu many years hus poss
essed so many elements or unusual novelty as
"Yon Yonson," which will Imj scon for the
tlrst time lu this city at thu Lansing this af
ternoon mid eveiiltiij. The Immigrant Hwodo
is it charactor ontliely now to tho stigo, ami
for that mutter comparatively unfamiliar to
that insignificant portion of tho United
State' not embraced In thu great Northwest.
Mr. Gils Hoego, the in Iglimtnr nf Sc.tndlua-
vlun dialect eoinody in "Yon Yonson" bus
given theatrical history a character so
quaint, so oi igllial, so clearly lined that the
I in I eisouatioii cannot fail to stand Itoldly
out among tho most celebruted Kirtroyulo of
the American drama. In the company en
gaged by Manager Litt to suppoit Mr, Heego
there are such clever people us Annie Utwis,
whom most of the critics have agreed iikii
as the coming national souhrette; Sitdlo Con

Theatre mrtles promise to be moro popu

of tho prettiest parties of tho Chlcugo season
wn calhsl a "violet party", uud consisUs! of
thirty-three couples, each lady wearing it
violet-trimmed hat. it spray of violets in her
corsage uud each carrying a violet fan. It
was as unique as it was lieutltlftil, and has
been largely copied In other cities. Dining

where hu opened his present southern tour, it
osu party was one of tho features of the oo

"Here's an idea I've just given Mr. Litt for
