A fine treat is in store tor the
amusement lovers of this city. That
inimitable German dialect comedian.
Charles A. Gardner, the sweet singer,
is to appear at Harper's theatre to
night in a new comedv-drama enti
tled. -The 1'riJie Winner," by Dr. E.
A. Wood and James K. Garcy. As
Karl. -The Trize Winner." Mr." Gard
ner has ample scope to display his
talents as an actor and a singer, and
reports of his work pronounce it the
hcit of his long career on the stage.
Itut '-The Prize Winner" is by no
means a one-part or star play ; its
characters are all well drawn and
will be acted by a company of lirst
class players. The scenes and situa
tions are" niarvelonsly real and nat
ural and the climaxes sufficiently
startling to awake the liveliest inter
est. An avalanche that buries the
principal characters apparently to
death is ft lie piece tiiumph of
the stage effects. Then there is a
great fund of humor in the work,
mingled with just enough pathos to
make. the play of human interest.
Mr. Gardner ha.1 six new songs, set
to music by Gustavc II. Kline, com
poser of -The Lilas." the following
being the titles: "The Turner's Tri
umph." "Wand Drill." "If My Heart
Could .Speak." "The Butterfly."
The Flower Girl," and the "Wed
Ezra Kendall, in hi new play,
"The Substitutw." is sure to attract
a big house at Harper's theatre on
Wedacsdav night. The play has won
high favor" from the start and i said
"kw. the best in which Mr. Kendall
has ever nmcarcil. tittle Arthur ;
Dunn of -Tin Soldier." "Crystal
Slipper." "Ali Baba." and the "Lit
tleOld Man of the Sea" and-Sinbad"
is with the company, ami is said ta
hac a funnier character than any
heretofore.'. Miss Jennie Dunn is
also with the company.

Prof. II. I. Blits delivered his lec
ture on his system of canning fruit
and vegetables by hot air and steam
at G. A. K. hall, Saturday afternoon,
before a large number of" ladies, who
had liecome interested in the pro
cess, and who were more than
pleased with the lecture, and the
practical demonstrations of the
merits of the system given. The ob
ject lessons presented were of great
value, and afforded much ins-ruction,
showing the entire absence of
acids or other preparations.
The ladies who received, in addi
tion to the. advantagejof the lecture, a
useful hook containing besides the re
cipe for the Blits process, a great deal
of household and kitchen information,
united n expressing their approba
tion of what they had heard and
learned, and appended their signa
tures to testimonials commending
the system to housekeepers.

down Fifth avenue, and when'' near

in a most insulting manner, maktug-j '
an indecent proposal.'- The young
lady repulsed him. and he then of

but he caught licr by the throat, ami
knocked her down. She made a des

and screamed, whereupon he fled.

also her voice." and started down
Near Yolk's planing mill she was

the scoundrel was made in vain, and
the gentlemen accompanied the lady
to the iKlicc station, where Xirht
CapU Kramer was made acquainted
with the facts and the police were at
once put to work on the case, but the
description, given by the young
woman, is such that it will be hard
to find the wretch.
The voung ladv's throat is fearful

charge of larceny, aiid there ho told

out of work and funds and gave that
as an excuse for stualinr the coal.

Kyberg insisted on going home, but
the officer was-too much for him, and
he was put in No. 3." This morn
