Since the close of the paBtorats of the

the city lost an abla man, and the cause
of music a warm supporter) the quartet
have devct.nl themselves tt gener

I can in conclusion only express a
wish that there may be in Lincoln
enough devotion t muBic, and enough
of pride in oar local institutions t af
ford a hearty support in the future ti so
genuinely aitistic a group. In the pos
session of a good string quartet Lincoln
is far in advance of many larger cities,
in the education of our children, in a
predating the beautiful it is a worthy
I wish that some more eloquent and
authoritative tongue than mine
might impress upon the peo
ple of Lincoln and of this state
the ga n in sweetness and light the right
use of all the arts can give. This c'ty is
furtressed and bulwarked with schools,

of prosperity offer advantages to the
poorest. L'oo';b and magazines and pa
pers icnumera' le we have but we do
to, so teriously observe and study the

George Eliot has Kiid, I believe in
Middl march, "lhat the many should
study art in order to be able to appre
ciate whit the few can do for them."
Surely there is no more de igh'ful way
to stu y the arts tsan in h arin; good
music well give 3, than in looking upon

We have purchased (because It la
Just the thins; we have needed) the
Columbian Cyclopedia Library, con
sisting of the Columbian encyclopedia,
which is also an unabridged dictionary
thirty-two volumes of convenient size
neatly bound, four volumes of thean
nual cyclopedic review, lour volumes of
current hlstoryfor 1896, one Columbian
atlaa and the neat convenient revolving
oak caa ewith glass doors. From the
evidence obtained we find that some
part of this work Is placed in the
test private and public library In this
country an dabroad, for the reason
that they cover a field relative to the
'past, present and future pregrasa
and achievements of the human race
not attempted by others. The plan
is original, and the work throughout
is carefully and ably written.
Current history contains 220 pages.
Is issued two months after the close
of each quarter, this length of time
being taken to reduce all information
received to be an absolutely reliable
and authentic basis. If these axe
kept on file, this magazine will prove
a permanent and Invaluable record of
all important movement in political,
social religious. literary, educational
scientific and industrial affairs.
The magazine will be lndispenslble
to all people who have encyclopedias,
aa It will be needed to keep these
works up to date. To those who do
not own encyclopedias it will be doubly
valuable as their source of information
is more limited. About March of
each year the four volumes of current
history are bound Into one volume,
known as the Annual Cyclopedic Re
view. There are now four of these
bound volumes covering yearsl892-3-4
and 5. The work has for endorsers
and subscribers in this city and state
such people as Mr. Gere, editor-lnchief
of the Lincoln State Journal.. Hon.
Joe Bartley. state treasurer. Hon. W.
J. Bryan. Mr. Miller, editor of the
Northwestern Journal of Education,

need of brief summaries of current

may furnish data sufficient, but the
labor of collecting and digesting it ia
