MUSIC AND THE DRAMA.
There has been a large sale of seats for
the Wagnerian concert to be given at the
Auditorium Saturday evening by the Sym
phony orchestra and the Arion Singing So
ciety. Tho programme Is one of particular
inttrest. The proceeds will go to the mem
bers of the Symphony orchestra. Tickets
are on sale at the Burlington ticket oliice.
An excellent programme was given by a
number of local artists at the Academy of
Music last night, under the direction of
Hr. "V. H. Potter. Although there was a
very large representation of local musi
cians among the contributors, the audience
was disappointing In Fize. The programme
was given by Mrs. Ben T. Hollenbuck, so
prano; Mrs. Frank J. Whitelaw, contralto;
Messrs. Dudley W. Eaton, Ben T. Hollcn

Much interest should attach to the ap
pearance at the Grand to-night and to
morrow afternoon of Mr. Lewis Morrison
in the character of Richelieu, a part that
ho has never before played in this city.
This play has always had a strong at
traction for the general public, and yet
there has not been a great exponent of tho
title character since the death of Edwin
Booth and Lawrence Barrett, unless ho
be Mr. Morrison, who has received very
high praise for his Interpretation of the
RURAL MAIL DELIVERY.
The Government ' Experiment Is a
Success in One Direction, Snys a
Last fall the postofflce department began
experimental free delivery of mail both in
certain villages and In certain country
townships, where tho system might have a
fair test. Tho department wanted to find
out how citizens of small villages would
like such accommodations, and also how
the farmers of fcomo well situated town
ship would appreciate dally deliveries.
Three tests of each sort were to be made
In different sections of the country.
The work has now progressed far enough
to enable the department to see some light
and from an official in tho Kansas City
postofflce yesterday it was learned that
the wcrk being done in small villages has
been discontinued, as the department
learned readily that it was not "filling a
long felt want.
"Village delh ery." he said. "Is a failure
for the reason that the average village cit
izen Tvants to go downtown each day, any
way, and does not need the services of a
uviiuuui. nui. in me country the results
have been very gratifying. The people who
live miles from the office take to the sys
tem and they are loud In praise of the plan.
The government Is so well pleased with the
results that the experimental country de
livery is to bo continued in the places
chosen until next July. The farmers write
more letters, they take more papers, and
they send more packages than when the
work started. The carriers, almost with
out exception, make that report. The car
riers have stamps with them and sell to
their customers, and in this manner the
stamp sales of the various offices are show
ing nice gains. The department Is pleased
with the work so far. it is to be the basis
of a report regarding tho feasibility of a
general freo delivery."

Pi'Ilman Palace Car Companv for the trip
of the Southwest Missouri Press Associa

ART THAT MEANT SOMETHING.
A. well Known Government Official
Satisfies Ills Artistic Instinct
and Insnrcs Pence.
A well known government official had
prominently displayed on the desk in his
offico in the government building yesterday
a rude sketch of an animal under which
was the inscription: "This Is a Cow."
Marked with red ink in large letters be
low it were the words. "Dried Beef "
Every visitor to the office saw the
sketch, everyone criticised and commented
upon it. From an artistic standpoint It
was not a thing of beauty. Apparently
the cow had the lump-jaw and she had a
slight arch In her back like a mad cat.
She was -exceedingly long In the quarter
and wa3 as gaunt as a wolf. A cow built
on such a plan would have had a hard
time keeping in the middle of the road.
"Why had he ornamented his desk with
this rude drawing?" he was asked half a
hundred times, but he held his peace. Last
evening, when he quit work, he carried
that Card out with him jinri holri it l v.i.
hand until his butcher had filled an order
for a pound of dried beef.
"One of tho woes of a forgetful man,"
he murmured as he tore up the card and
Chairman A. Rozelle, of Lamar, who was
last week appointed labor commissioner of
Missouri, desplto the fact that he Is a Pop
ulist, has written to the manager of the
Ashland hotel that there will be at least
300 membera of the National Reform Press
Association here at a meeting 'on the 23rd.
The meeting will bo doubly Interesting be
causo of the hard fight that is being made
by tho leaders of the two factions o the
Paul Vandervoort, of Omaha, who Is real
ly the president of tho association, con
ceived a great dislike to Rozelle. He has
had him expelled from the association and
has called a meeting for the 23d at Mem
phis, and is urging all of the stralghtout
Populistic editors to bo at that meeting.
Rozelle, who declares he is the leader of
tho "real things" In Populism, has called
the national meeting for Kansas City, and
Is whooping It up to get as many here as
possible. He said in the letter received at
the Ashland that at least 100 guests would
be on hand at the meeting, and he hoped
ior as many more.
Vandervoort Is leading the stralghtout
middle-of-the-road Populists who support
ed Tom Watson, und for that reason has
taken his meeting far to the South where
the Watson Influence Is supposed to be
stronger. On the other hand, Rozelle is of
the opinion that Populism did not mean to
support Watson, even after nominated,
but to fuse and make the best of It.
Suiting the SDlrlt Of (llf nrtlnti ha l.nul
with the Democracy and got to lie labor
commissioner under Governor Stephens, so
that to his mind fusion Is, and will con
tlnuo to be, tho proper thing. He claims
that all of the reform editors in the state
are with him; that most of the brain work
ers of Kansas will be behind him In the
fight, and that at this meeting he will com
pletely overthrow the Vandervoort Influ
ence. A week slnco when in Kansas City, Gen
eral Vandervoort said to a reporter for The
Journal that Rozelle was without backing
or Influence, and had laid down in the bat
tle for a few official cuts of pie, and now
wanted to sacrifice the whole National Re
form Press Association on the altar of
pelf. He said the Memphis meeting would
havo ten times tho delegates that Rozelle
would find at Kansas City, and that
stralghtout Populism would win the day
mantis uuwji uver ine lusion oranu.
uenerai vandervoort is supported In his
action by Chairman Marlon Butler, of the
Populist national committee. He admits
that, while Vandervoort's plans and ac
tions may have been faulty, there is ac
tually no authority behind the call that
Rozelle has made for the Kansas City
meeting, and he has urged that the call
be withdrawn. The plea has not been heed
ed as yet. and likely will not be. Rozelle
is a fusionlst, and will do everything In
his power to preserve his authority over
tho party, so that the wisdom of his ap
pointment may be demonstrated.

Two Armies the ncprnlnr and Irreg
ular: To which would you prefer to belong?
The regular, undoubtedly. The irregulars
are, admittedly, the most numerous, but
they are in a very undesirable state of no
disclpllne. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters
will soon remedy this want in a disordered
liver or bowels. Biliousness manifests it
self in yellowness ot the skin and eyeballs,
sour oream, iurrea tongue, morning nau
sea, discomfort In the vicinity of the liver,
vertigo rnd sick headache. Hosts of peo
ple suffer thus. These signs of insubordi
nation to the governance of health, togeth
er with an irregular condition of the bow
els, are soon regulated by the Bitters, which
also overcomes malaria, d vsnensl.i . rheu
matism, neuralgia, nervousness and kidney
trouble. As a means of checking prema
ture decay, hastening convalescence, and
mitigating the infirmities of age, the great
tonic Is without a parallel.

"If the state does not appropriate enough
money during the present session of the
legislature to pay the ordinary expenses
of the regiment. I am going to resign my
commission," said one of the officers. "We
have now the best timber in the state In
the regiment and the boys are all work
ing hard to have the regiment rank first
at the next Inspection, but unless we get
reasonable support from the state we
might as well resign. We give up our
time to the cause, and I don't see why
we should be compelled to give our own
money, or bes it from citizens, in order
to pay tne rent ior the Armory."
Captain Eben Smith, of the United
States army, will deliver a military ad
dress before the line, staff and field offi
cers of the Third reslmcnt at the club
