The turkey run of the Rock Island
Cycle club, "which on account of the
condition of the roads was postponed
from yesterday until tomorrow after
noon at 4 o'clock,' is something of a
new venture. It consists of a lt-mile
road race cn the brick pavement be

mill store on Fourth, avenue to
Twenty-fourth street, along Twenty
fourth to Moline avenue, through

and then returning over the same
course. The prizes consist ' exchi
tively of turkeys, of which 10 will he
given to the lirst 10 finishing. The
last "man in will get as a consolation
an aged goose. The start is in the
order of handicaps, .the novices lirst,
and starting in regular order until
at the last the better trained and
faster riders going in their endeavor
to overtake tho leaders. In this way
the umerence m training and exper
ience is overcome by the handicap
of time, thereby equalizing all
around and making the finish at the
tape close and exciting. Tee en
deavor of the handicapper is to start
all riders in such order that at the
finish they should come together.

Theatrical Attractions for the Enj'nymont

ment tomorrow evening and will ap
pear in his artistic presentation of
Hamlet." Mr. Whiteside is not to
be compared in any way to the trage
dians now before the American pub
lic for his stylo of acting is entirely
different. He is an artist in his act
ing which is subdued and natural.
The beauty of his acting lies in its
originality, for in his hands, Ham
let," Richelieu," Othello," and all
his impersonations come before us
in a new light. He has broken away
from traditional methods and it was
his brave stroke in that direction
that gained for him the grandest
praise possible from the pens of the
critics of Chicago, Cincinnati and
The attraction at the Harper
Sunday evening will be the clever
young comedian, James B. Mackie,
in that funny farced ' "Grimes'
Cellar Door." "lias it been your
good fortune to see James B.
Mackie. the favorite young comedian,
in his musical comedy, Grimes'
Cellar Door?" If not. don't fail to
avail yourself of the opportunity and
he will show you how much fun and
jollity can be worked from a cellar
door. As Grimesey, Me Boy," for
four seasons with the originallloyt's
Bunch of Keys"company, he danced
and sang his way into the hearts of
large audiences all over the country.
He is dancing and singing yet in his
new character of ' Billy Grimes," as
no one but James Mackie can sing
and dance. His new piece gives him
great scope for his versatile talents,
and he has placed himself on a stand
ing with our tinest comedians. Mr.
Mackie knows the value of a good
frame to frame a fine picture, and
has surrounded himself with a care
fully selected company of artists.
The entertainment is full of music
