There will be roars of laughter
during the engagement of that
highly popular farce comedy, The
Hustler, " at the Burtis nextSunday
evening. No entortainment ever
elicited more hilarity in a single pet

dents and interpolated specialties
alike are as funny as anyone can
easily imagine anything to be. Tbe
marvelous projects of the impcenni
ous Irish hustler," his cheerful
manner of borrowing money and
making the lender appear the debtor,
his elTorts to enrich himself at the
expense of his credulous partner and
to stave off his board bill, all are
excessively ludicrous. With an en
tire new second act and many gen
eral improvements. "The Uustler"
this season promises to eclipse any
of its previous engagements. An
exceptionally strong company is ap
pearing in the merry piece this
year. In it are John T. Ticrnay,

LAST OF TOM LANGDELL.
t'afortnnate Character Dies in the
1'oor House. J
Death ended the dissipated and
unfortunate career of Thomas Lang-1
dell yesterday afternoon at the poor
house, where be 'was taken several
months ago a helpless and pitiable ex
ample of absolute abandon. Tom, as j
he was generally known, wasa famil
iar character about the city for many
years. A deformed and depraved
being, hi only ambition was far
day-to-day existence. He burdened
uo one, preferring seclusion in some
out-of-the-way place, excepting such
times as he would lc employed
at odd chores about the sa
loons., where his alcoholic cravings
would be partially lessened in com
pensation therefor. Once a citizen
of fair circumstances, by degrees
Tom drifted to tho slovenly condi
tion which terminated his life. Tom
was a native of Scotland and came to
Uock Island in 1S.VJ. On Second
avenue near Fifteenth street, it will
be remembered, there stood for a
long period a blacksmith shop.
There Tom and his brother, George,
made a comfortable livelihood, the
former as employe and the latter as
proprietor. Eventually they both
cultivated the liquor habit and it
wasn't long before it interfered with
their business affairs. George be
came a physical as well ns financial
wreck. Some years thereafter ho
ded at the poor house where yester
day witnessed the passing from
e u thly existence of his brother.
Some twelve years ago Tom en
countered a deplorable accident
which but for a miracle would have
resulted in death. In crossing the
railroad tracks in an Iowa town he
ws struck ny an engine and burled
into the air. alighting on the locomo
tive's tender. Thereafter he wasda-
formed. an inclinoon the back bending
his head downward, addingdepravity
to his appearance in latter years. As a
cripple he continued on thedownward
path, even more so than previously,
his condition probably discourag
ing the anticipation if he had any
of adopting a better course of life.
Ho finally became an abjeet cf
charity, and hung around Ohlwcilcr's
(now Uutzwciler s) saloon on l-it-teenth
street and Second avenue,
doinjr odd jobs as a means of sns-
toancc. Several months ago it be
came necessary on account ot uis
weakened condition for the authori
ties to remove him to the poor farm.
where he remained, until ucath re
lieved mui. Langdell was 00 years
of age, and has one sister here,
Mrs. ti. W. Slockcr, 1521 Ssvcnth
avenue, and another in the west.
The remains were interred at
