Editor Kkws: For the second time I find myself called to your beautiful city on special duties connected with my ministry of the gospel in the Reformed .church in the United States. "Upon the first occasion I. was very favorably impressed with the general ap pearance pf this capital city of one of the best and most progressive states of the Union. At that time I had the pleas ure of meeting and making the acquaintance of a number of your prominent busi ness andprof essional men,yourself includ ed. I use nodittery when I say that even from my limited acquaintance then made I recognized wherein lies the secret of Lincoln's prosperity and metropolitan aspirations. All of my first impressions have been confirmed by what I have seen and learned during my second visit Some time after my first visit a friend sent me a copy of your paper containing a most interesting account of your city's progress! veness, and a description of the fine business blocks, churches, institu uons of learning, state capitol buildings, eleemosynary institutions, etc. From what I have seen since here i recognize nothing as having been overdrawn in said article. Some of these I have visited and noted in particular that they com pare favorably with similar Institutions of larger cities in the east The secret of success oi any city lies within the spirit of the people themselves. lhe spirit of progress is apparent on every hand, therefore I am not at all surprised at the success and material de velopment to be met with in every part of the city. If the spiritual and moral status ox the people can at all be computed by the beautiful and commodious churches provided for the worship of God, then the city of Lincoln, Nebraska, is most fortuaie. And indeed, I am glad to note what I believe to be a fact that these temples of God are a positive assurance of high degree of spiritual and moral ex cellence among the people oi tne city. The business aspects of the city are gratifying to the eyes of the visitors. I have lrequentiy neard travelers say mat mey regarded Lincoln, Nebraska, one of the riueat, best and most advantageous of the great west Of this I have now no doubts. A visiltor must Judge largely from generalities of observation: notwithstanding this, I see no reason why my judgment of the facts noted in this article are not correct I am most positive in this, that I have gathered ample evidence setting forth a high degree of business thrift Culture and morality The excellent public schools, institu tions of higher education, and a good business college, speak well i or tne intelligence of the people. I know of no city where more ot the advantages ior mental culture are greater, if as good. Parents having children to educate can nnu no better opportunities in this line man those now offered in this goodly city. It seems to me also to oifer to business men elsewhere the best possible inducements for investments. If I have looked only on the bright side and have erred in my opinions of the city, then I have been deceived by ap pearances and statements made to me Dy those who should personally know of the truth of their statements. But I am in no way fearfull that I have been led Into misstatements. One thing more I am pleased to note Is the city press. I am Inclined to believe this capital city owes very much to ex cellent character and power oi tne city papers. No city can attorn to ignore the influence of the press. Every wide-awake people will sustain and foster this the most potent arm of material and Intellectual progress With kind remembrance of limited ac quaintances of your city, allow me to say adieu for the present T. J) . DTAtTFFEB. UompUment for Lincoln Wlf Department. Editor Cleaver, the Orleans Prets, was in the city a few days ago and in next issue of his paper produces, without ap pearance of much effort, the following concerning his observations at the Lincoln fire department: Chief Newbury eave us several exhi bitions of the chain lightning manner in which the fiery steeds swing into line and out of the building when the electric eon? Is struck. The "standing hitch" inside of a minute In facts in so few seconds was too quick for the stop watch this time. It is asserted and not contradicted the best time on record for a standing hitch is now made by the Lincoln fire department Chicago or New York have no better, none more faithful fire fighters than Lincoln, though. the force of twenty-one men win not compare in numbers witn .tne larger cities That the efficiency and economy of this fire department is owing to the ability of Mr. Newbnry, who takes great pride in it goes without saying.

At least a number of citizens living north of the Missouri Pacific tracks have taken that view of affairs, and organized a Sev enth ward, selected officers and are all ready for reorganization. Sixth and Fifth wards are also anxious for a division. They claim that both wards are three or four miles long and it would take six or eight council men to properly attend to their wants and needs. i-The matter is being seriously considered, aud it is very probable that steps will be taken to ac complish this purpose as soon as it can be done, sio advertisements for statesmen will need to be inserted. Early Orwiit. Garden operations occupy general at tention these fine days. Lot owners who have space to devote for vegetable growing can reap an advantage and much pleasure in planting a wholesome variety of early maturing specimens such as spinach, cabbage, radishes, onions, letuce, beets, peas, potatoes, etc., which light frosts will not injure. If war, sunny weather like the present continues corn for table use can be planted with assurance that if the sprout ing process gets a good start and blades show themselves above the surface a light nipping by frost will not seriously interfere with growth. Farmers realize the advantage of early garden planting and enjoy great benefit from the usual variety in advance of the main crop. I iws I duNtriea Kevivlag.
