rendered, after which Mr. Riley
was introduced by S. W. Searle,
of the Davenport Leader, who
acted in behalf of the Tri-City
Fress club. It wai fully a moment
before the applause had subsided.
Mr. Riley took for his lirst topic "An

the story of a family fead as related
by one of the hooaiers who was a
party to it, the entire trouble grow
ing out of a dispute between brothers-
in-law over a hoe. Responding to an
encoro the poet gave a humorous
sample of a story as it is told by the
old soldier who really believes it
funny but does all tbe laughing him

narratives that oue has to bear from a
friend occasionally, and laugh at it
too, lest offense be given.

Miss Stephens, for her number, sang

Song." It-was given with sweet and
charming effect, the singer having a
rich and highly cultivated voice She
was roundly encored, but could only
be Induced to bow her acknowledg
ment. Another selection by the Bee

Fleaaant Informal Affair In Poet's t'onci
at Kimball Bonne.
At the conclusion of the theatre
performance the Tri-City Press club
entertained informally for Mr. Kilcv
in the parlors of the Kimball house
Lunch was served and cigars passed
and an hour of conversation with the
distinguished poet enjoyed. Mr. Ri
ley was made an honorary member of
the club by h rising vote, llob-
eit L. kcdulc, of this city, editor
of the" Fiaternl Tribune, was
aiso elected to membership. The
club by a rising vote extended its
thanks to those who furnished the
splendid, musical num our3 in connec
tion with the readings, -au expression
in which Mr. Riley wished to be re
corded as sharing.
Ibe meutiug broke up omy when
Mr. Rilev 's manager, J. M. Dickey,
anuouueed that the cast bound train
was ready to start. Tho poet even
then paused to say a few worda to

ainment. I am proud and p'eased in
having had the opportunity to appear
n tbe three cities under the auspices
of the Tri-City Fress club. I
hall always recall with happy
rcmerabrauees uiy visit here." Mr.
liley's compliments were duly
cinowledged in behalf of the club
nd he withdrew.
Mr. Riley and his manager, J. M.
Dickey, left on the midnight Rock
Island train for Chicago, hav-
ng caneelled thtir other , western
dates. It was reported at the
meeting that the club had realized
snug sum from the entertainment.
Mr. Dickey said in speaking of tbe
entertainment, "this nlgbt will, I an
sure, stand out as an event in Mr.
Riley's career before the public."
Everybody Good to the Frees.
Everybody wa3 good to the -press
club last evening. The people of the
three cities bhowed their good will to
the club as well as their appreciation
i the poet and those who assisted on
he program. Those who contributed
their talents in fiong and instru
mental music merited tbe expression
of appreciation that the tluo after
ward bestowed, lu the theatre iteelf

Effort That IT Experience. In Fat!nar
From the Poet to the Actor.
It is a safe presumption that
scarcely any on who beard. Riley last
night would bave guessed it had cost
the apparently Sfclf-pcssetsed nan
and conumsiatw actor- wh baailed
his lines so that every, word by tone
and intlectiou should count and have
its studied effect upon his auditors an
effort to place himself before them.
Nevertheless fcf some time preceding
every public appearance the poet
really suffers from an attack of "ner
vous" apprehension. Years of familiar
ity with tbe footlights have not
lessened, he said last night, the effect
of his tirst stage fright. Immediately
preceding his introduction to an audi
ence be is almost painfully 111 at ease,
and while this disappears somewhat
as the entertainment advances, ho is
nervous throughout and happy when
it is over. Yet, notwithstanding his
aversion to public appearances, he
said when he. retired after receiving
one of the most enthusiastic ovations
last night, "I declare I am getting to
feci at home with that audience, and
I do not feel so out of place after all."
